GREAT TIME AT CHIVAS

  • 4 of 5
My family went with two other families and had a great time! The house was on the beach and the access was easy to get to. The owner was vey cooperative and friendly on the phone. There were several things broken but gave the list to the owner (if you never stay there, you don't know what's wrong) and he apologized and said they would be fixed. Great for for several families. The living room looked updated. Very nice.

SORORITY GIRLS ON VACATION

  • 5 of 5
I stayed with about 20 of my sorority sisters at this wonderful home on the beach for our spring break trip. Everyone absolutely loved it because of its prime location, bountiful decks on different levels, and cozy beachy atmosphere. We had many people ask bout how it was possible to get such a great house for a relatively cheap price, and were astounded when I told them how easy it was to go through the rental process. The owners were wonderful and told us how to stay off the radar during the busy spring break time at the gulf, and answered any questions we had about the house, town, and contract. "Chivas by the Sea" will forever bring back amazing memories spent with great friends on a beautiful beach in a wonderful home for all of us in the sorority. There is no doubt we will be back next year!!

IN-DEPTH REVIEW OF CHIVAS BY THE SEA

  • 4 of 5
Physical house: The house is quite beautiful and definitely one of the nicest on west beach blvd. the main areas a very spacious and all three decks have breathtaking views and are in great shape. I will say you can tell the house was built relatively cheaply as there were several dings in the walls and some of the doors are starting to crack. However, ultimately, the wonderful abundance of amenities that this house has makes the property wonderful. The ice machine is phenomenal, TVs are big and nice, even the speakers were great. Despite a few shortcomings, the house itself is fantastic and like I said one of the nicest on that stretch of west beach.......................

Owners and property manager: I mostly dealt with the property manager and he was a very accommodating individual and very helpful with any problems. He was very willing to do a walk through of the house and point out any nooks or crannies. He was very friendly and seemed to really want to make sure the guests of the house have a wonderful stay. I only talked to the owner for a short amount of time and he seemed nice, but didn't seem too engaged in the upkeep of the property. Regardless, a very amiable person who was warm and welcoming. The owner's daughter was the only one of the group that didn't really go out of her way to make us feel welcomed. She wasn't mean to me or any of the guests but at the same time she didn't seem interested in customer service............................

Who should rent this property: We had a fairly young group and I would say if you're under 25 this night not be the rental for you. It's a very nice place and not necessarily the place to rent if you're going on a college spring beak, lots of nice decorative breakables . If you have a mature group that knows how to treat a house with respect you should be fine, but I'm well aware that a fair amount of college students/ young adults can't always do so, especially when alcohol is consumed in large quantities. However, this place would be absolutely wonderful for a large family or several families going on vacation. So I would say college spring breakers and bachelor/bachelorette getaways should seriously reconsider if this is the right property for what you want out of your trip. However, I will say that nearly everyone else should aspire to rent this property for their next vacation.

PHENOMENAL BEACH HOUSE

  • 5 of 5
Took a vacation with friends and were pleasantly surprised by the quality of the house. Great furniture, lots of space, a stocked kitchen, and even had a huge tv in the main room and another in the master bed. The owners were great people who were very accommodating and we all enjoyed our time there.
