Guestbook comments from the manager

The house was perfect for accommodating our three daughters aged 19-24. We had a fun family vacation at the beach and found the extra's supplied by the owner a nice surprise. We used the beach chairs, the two bikes and even the paddle boat on the pond. My husband and I did get our exercise climbing to the fourth floor to our master suite that included our own fridge and coffee pot. Our private balcony had the best view of the gulf and the rocking chairs were awesome!

Great House Great Location! Just wish Guest Relations was more Responsive

  • 4 of 5

The house was great! Location Perfect! Beach access right across the street, bikes, a wagon to lug things to the beach! A few things that weren't so great: There was a huge hole in one of the couch cushions that had been covered up by a throw blanket. We discovered it on our first night when we went to sit on the sofa and pulled the blanket off the sofa. I took a picture and emailed it to the guest relations email in the Guest Portal. We also could not find the dish detergent and laundry detergent promised in the "starter pack". Finally, no where in the house were linens for the pull out couch. I emailed guest relations about all of this and never got a response. Thankfully we only needed the pull out the first two nights and we just threw a flat sheet on top and stuck the kids on it (sorry, kids). Finally, while the wagon was a welcome surprise and definitely helped us get all of the stuff out to the beach--the wheels on it are on it's last legs and should probably be replaced. After not receiving an answer from the emails I just left this one alone but thought I would note it here as it will likely be unusable soon. These were relatively small complaints but I was annoyed by the lack of response from guest relations. Everything else was great. We loved our time on the beach, and each evening my husband and son enjoyed fishing off the private pier while i sat on one of the three porches and read my book. It was a great relaxing trip. Also had lunch at the restaurant next door (Stinky's) and we loved it!

Owner's Response: Hi Corey! Thank you for staying with us at Lily Pad and taking the time to leave such a wonderful review. We're so happy to hear that you and your family enjoyed your time at the beach. We appreciate your feedback in regards to the couch cushions and linens, and would like to apologize that no one ever got back to you. That is unlike our guest service team and we hope to have the opportunity to make it up to you. Thanks again for choosing Bliss Beach Rentals!

The property was exactly as pictured and represented. Loved the house and the area!

I would have given five stars but the stairs are something to consider if someone has physical limitations. My family will definitely stay here again!

Bright, Cheery Home. Loved the views. Ideal location.

  • 5 of 5

I loved the decor of this home during my stay here in June with my family. It is very colorful and bright and exactly what I imagine a summer home should be. The view of the water, both the lake on one side and the ocean on the other, were magnificent. It's on the west end of 30A, which is nice if you want to be close to Destin - we like to go there for shopping. It's the best of both - you're close to SanDestin but also far away enough to get away from the summer crowds and enjoy the quietness of 30A.

A home with a lot of stairs

  • 3 of 5

I came to the lilyPad with family, no children. The place Is decorated in a nice design, there are several issues that I consider a problem. You are given VIP passes to movie store which is 25 miles round trip and Redbox is 1/2 mile away.

There was no information ( book) in house to tell you about T.V. Property, places to go.

You had one kitchen towel for week. Can opener did not work, no supplies.

The T.V. Did not work, but sent maintenance man Tim, who I have to say was the nicest person we had contact with. Wished everyone involved with property was as nice.

We brought a pet and, I was scared to take him out without flash light, none of the solar lights worked.

The third bedroom is the worst. No tables, no light, except overhead. Bed was very uncomfortable? If a child stayed in the room, he may not care, for an adult, it was a bad room.

If you got cold there were no throws. But most of all no curtains period. When person showered in master, window was clear. Why not curtains????

I have been coming to Florida for the last 5 years at least twice a year.

For the money, which was told wrong on Internet, I was dissatisfied with this house. Furniture Is dirty and hard to sit on.

You do get plenty of exercise because if you stay in Master to go up from bottom to top 108 steps.

I hope owners read this review and try to fix some of the things for the next family.

Wonderful vacation home

  • 5 of 5

We spent the month of February at the Loly Pad. We loved the home and the location. Would love to rent next year for 5 weeks, however, the springs In the sofa were sprung and very uncomfortable there need to be more comfortable seating and the furniture should be cleaned occasionally. That being said we loved our time there
