The property manager was very unhelpful.

The vacation rental was very clean.

I was more than happy with the location.

I was somewhat dissatisfied with the condition of the vacation rental.

Overall, I do not recommend this vacation rental.

Reviewer Comments:

I just returned from a 4 night stay at this unit. Upon arrival, there was the strongest smell of carpet cleaner, it was almost unbearable. While I appreciate the fact that they had recently had the carpets cleaned, it took 2 days to get the odor out. It was extremely potent. Be aware: You have to go to the office to pick up keys and also drop them off for this unit. I'm not sure this was disclosed to me beforehand. But that's not as big of a deal as this: Of the 6 keys we were given, we could occasionally get 1 to work, and that took quite a bit of time. Very inconvenient when you have several people staying and I was attending meetings while my family was at pool and beach. They finally called a locksmith, but it wasn't until AFTER the locksmith was there that they called me to let me know. I just happened to meet him at the door as he was changing it out. Not sure what they would have done if I hadn't been going up to the unit. Also a little unsettling that they would allow someone in my unit without notifying me first. I rarely have had issues with places I have stayed, but the one time I did, the rental company at least attempted to do something to make up for the inconvenience (e.g., a discount on a future stay, % back, etc.). Not Destin Getaways. I'm not very picky when it comes to the look of my beach accommodations, but the furniture in this unit was very worn and it could have used a serious update. Normally I'm given very specific information on check-out instructions and what is expected of me upon checking out. I had to e-mail to ask for this information.

Owner's Response: Dear Guest, Thank You for reviewing your stay at Luau 6521. We are dissapointed to hear the carpet cleaning caused a strong odor. We try to have this done prior to a guest arrival by a day or two but with the busy season sometimes it can't be avoided. We did disclose in several documents that you must come get a key from our office to check in. We understand the lock needing to be maintenance was an issue that we took care of as soon as possible. It was perfect timing that you walked up when the certified locksmith was there however, we would of met you where ever you may have been to ensure you had access to your vacation rental. The owner did just replace the main couch and is in the process of renovating the rest of the furniture. Check-Out instructions are in the contract you are required to initial and sign prior to your vacation. They are also listed in the app we ask all guest to download. Our number one goal is guest satisfaction should you decide to try on of our properties we will be happy to make up for this stay. Thank You, Management

Reviewer Comments:

Overall, I would say the unit looked "tired". The furniture was well worn and the couch was warped, too small and dirty. We covered it with a sheet during our stay. The carpet needs replacing and the linens need to be refreshed. All of the dishes were dirty and we had to wash everything on arrival. This unit needs a little TLC.

Reviewer Comments:

stayed for 3 nights during holiday weekend. Positives - great location, easy access to beach. Luau pool area is very nice and well maintained. Negatives - several items not working in the unit unit could used some new fresh paint. Free activities may seem like a great deal but too many restriction on timing.

In comparison with other local options, this is the best choice we have made. In comparison with other friends, my choice at the Luau was a better deal than similarly situated condos/hotel rooms.

Great Location, right across from Baytowne, I love the accommodations especially the master suite. This was very spacious and could accommodate multiple families. Very Clean. I also liked the freebies to go along with it.
