Reviewer Comments:
The house is lovely and just right for our family of 6; everyone had lots of room and the living room, kitchen, and dining area were comfortable for all of us. The office was great and helpful. The mid-week email with suggestions for activities was great. One note: although you can rent bikes and kayaks from LiveWell, renters at this house have to use another service for beach chairs because of a contract or something. We found this out when we arrived after being contacted by, and reserving with, LIvewell for beach chairs in addition to our other rental items.

Sand Dollar is a beautiful property with amazing decor and having a 2nd fridge helpful. Location great but anything gulf front along 30A could boast of that. Now a bit of negativity; upon arrival and wanting to check out view the door handle on the door leading to balcony fell off. Now I read renter before us had same problem so in at least 2 weeks time problem not solved. 2 days for a temporary fix and we were told to be careful. Our Last night there, air on floors 1 & 2 quit working. A portable unit was brought out for BR but 80* packing and cleaning unacceptable .We found items under furniture missed by cleaning crew from ? Knows when .We had an air problem at another home on 30A couple summers back and it was resolved late at night and the owner called me personally from NV so I know repairs can be made 24/7. Air problems should be treated as an emergency, only other complaint is that garage showing in not usable. Half is media room and other half locked so no covered parking. We had a wonderful week, great weather, beautiful water. But reading some of our problems were pre existing unresolved ones from weeks ago and the horrible experience of no air conditioning with an infant gives me pause to recommend this property. This was our 2nd Vizcaya home to rent. This would have been an obvious choice over the other home had it not been for the door which by the way could not be locked and most distressing allowing guests to swelter in oppressive heat with an infant with no attempt by an expert in the field to solve the problem. I know these things happen but I also know problems can and should be resolved to the satisfaction of the customer. The heat caused by no air conditioning could have created an unhealthy possibly dangerous situation and additional efforts should have made to solve the problem. All ratings based for the most part on air problems.

Reviewer Comments:
This home needs some much needed attention. We had problems starting the first day of our vacation. The BBQ Pit and Egg were not maintained and did not work. Had to get rental company to bring a portable gas grill to us. Used this one once and it broke as well. Handle on patio door falls off even after maintenance came over to fix it. We just quit using that door. Upstairs bathroom shower has major leak and leaked water all over downstairs and kitchen. We were not able to use that shower/bath for the whole week. Overhead rheostat light switch in kitchen becomes extremely hot when on and it is apparent that this has been going on for a while since scorched wall plate is indicative of burning of some sort. We simply stopped using that light making it difficult to cook since it was the main lighting for the kitchen. We did keep the fire extinguisher near by just in case. The toilet in upstairs master suite has problems flushing.
All of this was happening on our first day so our vacation started off a little bumpy. The management team was very professional and tried to attend to all of our concerns in a timely manner. We made the best out of a bumpy start and enjoyed the rest of the week just avoiding the problem areas in the home.
The home is in an excellent location and stocked with just about everything you could possibly need for a beach vacation. I would still recommend this home to all. It just needs a little more TLC on a regular basis.

Reviewer Comments:
This is not your typical rental home. The owner has left no stone unturned to make sure that you are completely pampered during your stay. The bedrooms are spacious and the beds are amazingly comfortable. The bathrooms are all updated and the kitchen is updated and fully stocked. There are two grills on the deck as well. What's truly beautiful is the view. Every morning we saw dolphins swimming along the shoreline as we sat on the deck drinking freshly brewed coffee. I appreciated all of the small touches like blankets to cuddle up with in the evenings. We were there for a week with some other families and there was plenty of room for everyone. Lastly, the location is perfect - away from the crowds at Seaside but convenient to grocery shopping and restaurants. You won't be disappointed staying here.
