Love the area! but....
We are seasoned FL visitors. Love Santa Rosa and will always return. This property is easily within walking distance to beach access, however, a golf cart would be very useful/ more convenient. Check in was a breeze and decor beach perfect. Plenty of room for our party of 5. That being said, cleanliness was lackluster! We noticed bed sheets were stained with bodily fluid in the master bedroom and one other room had sand in the bed, lots of sand, along with someone's panties in the nightstand. The air downstairs worked on and off. Froze often. Floors desperately needed a good mopping!!! Being a licensed healthcare professional, and with the current health crisis, I was deeply concerned with the cleanliness of this property. Be forewarned. Management will be notified upon our return. Maybe a new cleaning service is warranted?!
We loved this condo. It was beautiful and very clean. I would definitely stay here and again and recommend it!!! Loved that it came with 4 bikes to use during our stay.
Thank you for your review and feedback. We are glad to hear you had a great experience at our home. We hope that you come back next year for another memorable vacation!

Very poor accommodations and extremely dirty with lots of problems.
Upon walking into the property we were very upset with the dirty conditions of the property. Carpet, cabinets, and furniture were extremely dirty. Both bathrooms had mold on the ceilings. Stains on all the carpets upstairs and down. After a few days we realized the upstairs air was not working. During the night I heard water dripping and at 4am in the morning I was scooping water out of the drip pan under the furnace upstairs. Called SVR and two people were out at 8:30am. When Luke took the filter and screen out of the furnace it was moldy and very dirty. He told us the furnace was froze up and SVR sent a heating and cooling guy out to fix it. He also changed the downstairs unit that was extremely dirty. The outside unit was also froze up. The only reason we stayed was because we had friends at a local camp ground. The pans in this place were so worped that on the flat stove you had to hold them . On line this place looked great, but that was certainly not what we rented! Also, when I started wiping the kitchen counter upon arrival it had something like syrup all over the counter.
I certainly would like the cleaning refund back. Never again will we rent.
Thank you for this feedback Andrea. We are so very sorry that this vacation did not meet your expectations or our Southern standard. Thank you for reporting these issues to us and allowing us to come out and address them all. We are happy to report that since the AC has been replaced there have been no other issues with it. We do hope that we will see you again in the future to show you a vacation that meets the true Southern standard.

Wonderful location and complex but other details left much to be desired
The location in Santa Rosa is wonderful. Both pools were excellent, and even the house’s location within the neighborhood is very desirable.
However, there were lots of little things that made our stay less than perfect. I should note this is the first rating I’ve ever given that was less than five stars on VRBO so I feel I am a pretty understanding and tolerant guest.
All communication was done via text and email. I tried several times prior to the trip as well as during our stay to call. I never once received a call back nor can you ever talk to anyone in person. The property manager, obviously in an attempt to be efficient, has over-corrected and talking to an actual person is impossible. Very frustrating to say the least. For the first day we were there, the Internet didn’t work.
The house is very sparsely stocked. No extras of any kind. Granted there are cups and plates and bowls. But as in the case with so many other rentals where there are plenty of extras to give it a homey feel, this rental had none of that. The towels and linens and sheets are all minimum quality. The carpet is soiled in several places from previous pets and the walls are scuffed up throughout the house.
None of this is terrible - it just means this rental is just “Ok.” I would suggest finding another rental in the same neighborhood that has a more responsive property manager.
Thank you for taking the time to review your stay with us Mike. We always appreciate our guests feedback and are always looking for ways we can improve. We have updated our listing to include what we leave in the home as a starter kit and what we recommend our guests bring with them. This list can also be found in the guest portal that all of our guests have access to. We offer text and email communication as a convenience to our guests but everyone is always welcome to call with any questions or concerns. We are happy to hear that you enjoyed the location and the neighborhood pools. We hope to see you at Sunny Delight Cottage again!
