Property's Sale Leads to Epic Fail

Property's Sale Leads to Epic Fail

Prior to our arrival, I contacted the owner to obtain the code to the lockbox & to ask if we might be able to check in early, as our flight would be arriving in the morning. The reply I received was a brusk "No early check-in." Could've been nicer about it, but I figured there must be guests checking out that morning. Our group of 14 went out to lunch & hung out at the beach to kill time before check-in. When we finally entered the home, we were horrified to find that it had not been cleaned. Beds were unmade, the fridge was full & sand was everywhere. It almost looked as if someone was still staying there. I called the owner & was told that he had sold the property the week prior, and that he would call the new owner to let them know of this situation. Long story short, it seems we were caught in the middle of some disagreement regarding the transfer of ownership. We spoke to the previous owner (whom we made our reservations with) & the new owner, and to tell you the truth I still don't know who was to blame for the situation. The new owners claimed to have not received the proper documentation about upcoming reservations, & the seller implied the new property managers had dropped the ball. Personally, I couldn't understand why the previous owner told us we couldn't check in early if that was no longer his call, as he had not mentioned he no longer owned the property prior to our arrival. Needless to say, we were not happy about having to sit outside while a cleaning crew whipped the house into shape (to their credit, they did arrive promptly and work quickly). The following day, one of the property managers brought us a wine and cheese basket as an apology for the hassle, yet claimed we would have to take it up with the previous owner if we expected to receive a partial refund. After our trip, I did inquire about this but was told that our rental fee was transferred to the new owners. If that's true, I don't know why they wouldn't be responsible for such a refund. It seemed both sides were trying to make the other look bad. Other than that first day, the rest of trip was without incident. The house was beautiful (once clean), as are all the homes built by the original owner. I will say, his pictures don't lie. Although I did somewhat prefer the layout of Villa Capri, the pool at 5 O'Clock is much bigger. All in all, it was still a good trip. But I didn't appreciate being caught in the middle of a petty argument.

This house is amazing to host a rehearsal and wedding! All our guests were amazed about how much detail was put into the house. We had a large family of 28 people sleeping under one roof comfortably.

This was our first time in the Destin area. Tis house was awesome in every aspect! We had 18 in our group ranging from 3 to 51. The pool, the location and the over all luxury of the house made us feel like kings! The house was clean and kept up. The pool area was like a 5 star hotel pool! The kitchen was stocked with all the tools needed to cook a feast for all of us. Thank you so much for the sharing this beautiful home for us to make some unforgettable memories in! We hope to use it again!

The quality of the build and the decor in the house are top notch. You will not regret renting this home. Each room brings its own design and class. Even inch of this home was beyond well planned and there is nothing like it. Every room from the outdoor living to the baths are absolutely beautiful. It does look as nice as the pictures. We found ourselves excited to walk into every part of this home and everything was well above any expectations.

5 O'Clock Somewhere is absolutely fantastic! We have rented homes in the Destin area for about 20 years. This home far exceeds anything we have ever rented. It is perfect for a large, multi-generational gathering. My sister and her family rented the house next door and my brother and his family rented the house across the street but everyone wanted to gather at 5 O'Clock Somewhere. The heated pool was enjoyed my all. The grandchildren just loved the built-in, queen size bunks. Each had its' own television! We had only 14 staying in the house and there was plenty of space for all of us and more. The kitchen is great. We easily served 45 for Thanksgiving lunch. Ben is a great builder that thought of everything one needs for a vacation. We will definitely rent 5 O'Clock Somewhere again. I highly recommend it to all.
