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!

Fantastic Beach Getaway

  • 5 of 5

House was huge, clean, comfortable and had everything we needed. We did manage to lock ourselves out on the third floor balcony--but we simply yelled at a passing couple that were on bikes, and they came in and let us out!

We had a real blast--and we loved that the house is by itself on Lake Allen--directly across the gulf. We darkened the doors at Stinky's at least once every day, too. It's just so convenient. I'm thinking we will come back to this same house next year if we can.

The concierge was awesome as well, booking a fishing charter for us. The bikes were an added bonus, too.

great spot

  • 5 of 5

The lily pad has a great location only across the road from the beach. We enjoyed being able to walk to the beach, having our chairs ready and just relaxing. The house is nice with plenty of space . Would definitely try to stay here again if coming to the area.

Lovely Lily Pad!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed at the Lily Pad and loved every second! The house was beautiful and well appointed. The rental company was easy to get a hold of when needed, and friendly on the phone. The house has many stairs, but it's worth it for the views and hey- hard to gain weight on vacation when you're staying on the 3rd floor! :)

We can't wait to go back!

Just okay...

  • 2 of 5

Multiple issues with this house. Arrival day code did not work. Took almost an hour, multiple phone calls, waiting in the heat to get in the house. There was a blanket throw on the sofa back - when removed revealed a huge tear (hole with stuffing hanging out). No blanket, comforter on one of the twin beds just sheets - no spare blankets anywhere in house. Deck furniture looked as if it had not been cleaned in a long time - first floor deck so crowded you can't comfortably sit. The kitchen is very ill equipped. Location is just okay. Cars parked everywhere for those driving to the beach. Internet poor. Bedroom TVs have limited channels. Several items called out in previous year reviews were still an issue even though responses said issues were addressed. It was great to be with my family on vacation but would not consider another stay here.

Owner's Response: Hi Patricia! Thank you for staying with us at Lilly Pad, and sharing your experience with us. These are areas of opportunities for us and we have our teams looking at the linens, deck furniture, and kitchen items. As for the internet and cable, that can be problematic for everyone here in the busier summer seasons. We hope to have you again to show you what a true five-star experience is like.

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!

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!
