Guestbook comments from the manager

This was a great place to stay near the beach. We stayed for three nights and had a blast. The condo was clean, and had everything we needed. It was only a two minute walk to the beach. I would bring extra toilet paper and dishwasher detergent, we didn't realize tht we would need to bring more of that. But other than that this rental exceeded our expectations! Plus, check-in and check-out was easy and everyone was very friendly. I will definitely be staying here again!

Our family of two had a horrible experience. Not worth our time or money. Will not stay here again!!

  • 1 of 5

First, we thought we booked a two bedroom two bathrooms villa, but there is only one full bathroom, which needless to say created a lot of inconvenience for a family of two.

Second, it appeared to us that the condo has not been renovated in years. The living room and bedroom furniture appears old and crumbling.

Third, the service is not good. We ran out of toiler paper, and to our surprise, could not find any extras in the storage space. We also ran out of trash bags; again much to our surprise, no extras to be found anywhere.

Overall, our holiday experience was horrible. If we ever plan to visit pensacola beach again, we'll look for a better place and service. Definitely not Villas on the Gulf or Southern Vacation Rentals.

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking the time to write this review. We are so sorry for any confusion about the number of bathrooms.. It is posted on this listing correctly and we have always advertised it as such on vrbo.com. In our management company’s Guest App, it does show # of baths as 2 since it does not distinguish between full and half. You would only have seen the App once confirmed so your reservation was made based on the 1.5 bathrooms. In that same App where you saw the # of baths, it also has a section indicating what is supplied and what we recommend you bring. There it outlines that an “initial supply of toilet paper, paper towels hand soap, and trash bags to get you through your first 24 hours, we recommend you bring the following:” and then lists quite a bit. Again, we are so sorry for the confusion, but we do make every effort to inform our guests. Sincerely, Southern Vacation Rentals

Just like home

  • 5 of 5

I have to disagree with the previous review of this property. It's very clean and well taken care of. The beds are amazing/comfy and the furniture is clean and comfortable. This place has everything one would need ,just bring groceries and a toothbrush. Rooms are all fairly large for a condo and have great views of the lagoon with the beach only a short 2-3 minute walk on their nice little walk way. Clubhouse and pool are great for the kids and if you have teens like me the pool and clubhouse are within your sight from the condo balcony to check in on them. Management was very helpful and attentive. We had the plug on the tub broken the first day we were here and it was fixed at lightening speed within the hour. We highly recommend this condo and can't wait to come back.

Not Impressed

  • 1 of 5

We've been regularly renting condos, townhomes and houses on Pensacola and Navarre beaches for the last 30 years. This is the first disappointing rental we've ever made. First-the photos are of the place when it was new. Carpets are dirty, stained, nasty. Walls are dirty, scuffed, scratched. Lamp is broken. No counter space in bathrooms at all. If you like drinking out of plastic, you'll be fine. There are sheets on the master bed, but no mattress cover (eww!). No blankets anywhere- either a sheet or the comforter will have to do. The sofa is broken. In all fairness there was a "repairman" who stopped by, but he said he would take care of it the morning we left. We sat on the sofa and really, it just needs to go to the curb. The footstool for the chair is ripped and both don't feel clean at all. Furniture and decorative items looks like they were picked up at garage sales.Walls are paper thin and you'll hear all the partying going on in the complex. Bring hangars and a blow dryer. The stove-the burner pans are absolutely filthy and greasy. How hard could it be to wash or replace those? I've never given a negative review before- but feel I need to warn others. I'll be sure to make a list and pass off to management when we leave. If you are on an extreme budget, and don't mind a one-star rental, this is the place for you.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your comments regarding your stay in our condo. I take guest feedback very seriously, so you can rest assured your concerns will be promptly addressed with my rental company, Gulf Blue Vacations, which is located just a couple of miles away. I sure hope you contacted them right away to alert them to your concerns as they are always very responsive in addressing any guest concerns when they arise, as well as have repairmen on call. I am sorry you found a few items missing (e.g. hangars, glasses, blankets, etc.), but unfortunately on occasion things do go missing and don't get noticed during the long and very busy rental season. The burner pans have already been replaced, and the rental company will ensure the linen service replaces the mattress pad which they must have failed to replace when the sheets and towels were changed out immediately prior to your arrival. I appreciate your comment on the couch, and will certainly investigate the purchase of a new one. I am truly sorry the condo didn't meet your expectations, but greatly appreciate the feedback you provided as it will be used to correct any difficiences so as to ensure future guests, just like past ones, continue to enjoy a clean, affordable place to come and enjoy Pensacola Beach with their friends and families. Thank you again for sharing your feedback.

Great Value for a Wonderful Beach Vacation

  • 4 of 5

Had a nice vacation in this little condo. Pros--good size, comfortable, near the beach, quiet, nice landscaping, great view of lagoon with ducks & pool. Cons--air conditioning went out twice in one week (but management was GREAT about getting it fixed quickly), cannot really see the beach from condo (lagoon was a great view, though, and made up for this). Condo could use a few touch-ups, but we prefer "comfy" to "perfect" so this wasn't a big issue. No lifeguards at this section of beach, so take a buddy.

Our family is used to Myrtle Beach. Pensacola Beach is a lot less commercial and quiet (at least at this time of year) which was a nice change. The sand is beautiful! Fun stuff to do--funky local gift shop near the Subway restaurant on the main strip, Naval Aviation museum at NAS Pensacola was interesting and free, Fort Pickens is nearby and a neat day trip if you like history. We did putt-putt one day and shopped at the local "boardwalk." There are several waverunner rentals available, along with parasailing and other water sports which we did not participate in, not being the sporty types. It was easily to get around the area and the traffic was only heavy at the main intersection. The ladies at the welcome center were extremely enthusiastic and helpful, so be sure to stop there for info.

I would definitely recommend this property to a friend and would like to stay here again if we travel to the area. Thanks for helping our family have a great time in Pensacola!

Owner's Response: Thank you very much for your review and glad you found the condo to be a good value. I'm so sorry about the air conditioning problem you experienced, but glad to hear that the management company was quick to respond. The complete AC system was replaced this week, so that should keep the problem you experienced from reoccurring. Thank you again for the kind comments in your review and I'm so glad you had a fun and enjoyable stay on Pensacola Beach. Please come back again soon for another visit, and I'd welcome the opportunity to have you stay at my condo again.

Worth the $$

  • 4 of 5

4 of us adult gals booked our getaway here. We got what we expected for our expense. Nothing elaborate, but all was clean and fairly maintained. The property rental co. (JME) was INCREDIBLY helpful and friendly. They took note of things we mentioned and promised it would be fixed immediately. The surroundings were gorgeous and the walk to the beach was pretty and minimal. The walk over the lagoon was enjoyable as there were ducks all about. I would stay here every visit if it's available. We plan on staying here annually for a week at the minimum. Bring extra beach towels, TP and dish soap for a stay longer than a few days. Appliances work really well. Beds are a bit soft. Shower has intense power. No elevator. Prepare to carry stuff up 2 flights of stairs (or a single steeper flight at the back balcony door).

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review. I'm very glad you enjoyed your stay and found the condo to be a good value for the $$. I have shared your review with my property manager at JME vacations. We look forward to having you come back real soon and would welcome the opportunity to have you as a guest again. Thanks again for your kind words and sharing your rental experience.

Needs Help

  • 2 of 5

I thought I had picked a nice property for the price but wished I had stayed at a hotel instead since I didn't feel confident in the items in the cabinets that contained rusty knives, etc...

The beds were lumpy...mb never turned...the blinds broken, torn places on the doors, tiles not maintained well in the bathrooms, stains on the furniture, rusty porch chair and beach chair...etc...

It was however cleaned pretty good and in a great location

I might recommend this for young spring breakers.

Despite having numerous prior renters, this is the first time anyone has raised concerns with any of the items posted in the review.

Thank you for the kind words about the cleanliness and location of the condo.

Again, thank you for the constructive feedback and rest assured that any items needing corrective action will be quickly attended to. Thank you.
