Why Owner chose Santa Rosa Beach
This is a wonderful location for your vacation! It is only a 5 minute walk to the beach, short walking distance to great food (Cafe 30A is is closer to the bungalow than the beach!), and a short distance to the events in Seaside! There is always something going on year round in this area too! I also like the fact that there is a lot of cool local artists in the area, it is an awesome place to get away to.
What makes this Bungalow unique
The bungalows is a great comunity located right in the middle of 30A. The location is a short distance to all of the events in the area. You will not find a better place for the price!
Pool / Spa
Sports & Adventure Activities
Great location and price!
We loved the location and price. The pool was good. Few items needed fixing like the shower head, chairs and table needed tightening, and also the pull out couch was awful. Overall good trip.
I hate leaving bad reviews but I feel obligated to make others aware. I didn’t ask owner for a refund or discount so I have no motivation to lie. Fact is, when you stay away from home you expect a certain level of cleanliness. When you arrive and feel the need to wash go buy cleaning supplies and wash all the sheets and towels before you use them I think it speaks volumes. This place could be a great place to stay. Very cute, nice community, very safe surroundings and nice pool and amenities. I read the reviews and there were some older reviews claiming it wasn’t clean but more current that said it was great so I assumed it was corrected. Not the case. The carpet being “filthy” was still filthy The baseboards looked like they had never been cleaned ever and in the kitchen they were simply disgusting. Sheets on the beds were beyond worn out with holes in them and many of the towels had stains on them as well as other people’s hair and frankly that caused me to go buy some towels at Walmart and use. When we arrived there was a nasty molded towel on the shower floor in one of the showers and a bottle of cigarette butts on the deck. All of this plus other things removed all confidence the housekeeping staff really cleaned. I bought cheap flip flops for everyone to walk around the house particularly on the carpet and in showers. Like I said, it has so much potential if it were just cleaned properly and that carpet wasn’t so nasty. I cleaned one of the stairs with a Clorox wipe I bought and it was black when done. Very very disappointing. We stayed for the duration of our trip and made the best of it. I texted owner with my thoughts about what he could do to make it better and honestly I probably would not have left this review had he responded back to me with an acknowledgement of my concerns but given he didn’t and now looking back and seeing others have said the same over a year ago I see now it’s probably going to fall on deaf ears. Therefore, you may want to keep looking if cleanliness is important to you. If he did what I suggested his place would be great to stay in but I have low confidence in that happening. On a positive note, he was very responsive to the air conditioner not working and had a repair man come out and fix it somewhat promptly given it was the weekend. Called him Saturday and he came on Monday morning.
Trust the negative reviews!!
My girl friends and I rented this bungalow for a fun weekend getaway. I was sorely disappointed the moment I walked in. This bungalow has not been REALLY cleaned in I don’t know how long. Stains all over the walls, baseboards, and don’t get me started on the floors. There was long black hair all over the upstairs bathroom floor. Horrible soap scum in the tub, too. Downstairs bathroom lock was broken, can opener broken, one of the dining chairs broken. Open wires hanging down from a missing smoke alarm. There were 3 massive holes and rips in the sheets (I know because I counted and replaced the top sheet). The WiFi went out the last day (at this point I didn’t even care because we were leaving). The “pull out couch” is a JOKE. The mattress on it was thinner than a dollar bill. Not enough seating for 6 people whatsoever. I am so disappointed considering how much we paid. One positive is that Dustin was very responsive and answered my call within seconds. This bungalow could be an incredible vacation spot if it was thoroughly cleaned and updated. It definitely needs some major renovations. I hope my review will help you identify things that need to be done!
Exactly what we needed/ wanted
Clean, well equipped 2- bedroom easy walking distance to the beach. Owner is kind and helpful
Very nice and clean. All the amenities we needed. Extra towels. Washing machine. Great location. Spacious. Will come back. And we recommended to friends and family who were staying near us in another house.
When we searched VRBO for a rental this one had poor reviews on cleanliness and needing updates from March 2017. We thought surely based off of several poor reviews things would have been different for us; however, we were mistaken.
First, this community is very nice. The grounds are well maintained. Pool area is clean and a nice size. It is about a mile from Seaside and a straight stretch to the beach. As far as this specific rental, when we first arrived we were at first deterred from the unkempt outside including a dirty grill, pile of beach items to the side and a bucket of cigarette butts. The unit layout is perfect. Tall ceilings and large kitchen as well as a half bath and laundry on the lower floor. The floors were tile and filthy. My 9 month old son picked up chips off the floor and at another time a chip of a piece of hard candy. The rug in the living area had pieces of food dried into it. The stairs also had their fair share of dust, hair and just tracked in dirt. Upstairs is carpeted so there is no telling what was in there. The towels were tattered and worn and the first 3 we pulled out before washing them had hair attached to them. In the master bath the tub did not drain properly and water stood the entire time you showered. The shower curtain liner was dirty with mildew and stuck to you when showering. Want to wash your hands after using the restroom? 3 of the 4 hand soaps were mostly water with some left over soap. The master bedroom sheets were stained and we thought if they don't clean the floors, do they clean the bedding. Lastly, no smoke detecors? They had a security system so perhaps it was part of that, but there were wires hanging from every ceiling where they once were. Overall, don't do it look elsewhere for a rental and trust the reviews.
