Nice condo in great location!

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at several Gulf Place condos and this one was fabulous! There were many nice touches that made the stay very comfortable: nice seating on balcony, well furnished kitchen with plenty of cookware and quality dinnerware, nice showerhead in bathroom with oversized shower (extended shower rod), great linens and good mattresses. The decor was adorable! Bert was great to work with and we will be back!

Very comfortable and relaxing!!

  • 4 of 5

We arrived on a Monday and I was pleasantly surprised with the accuracy of the representation of the condo online. We were so blessed with fabulous weather the week we visited. The unit was clean and well located in the complex. We utilized the pool directly outside our room daily as well as the beach. The beaches were beautiful with gorgeous sunsets every night. Only "complaint" I have is that we had to buy wash cloths as there were only 4 in the unit. When at the beach with a family of 4 we took several showers a day and I'm picky about using a clean wash cloth. We did utilize the washer dryer daily as well which was very helpful. Also didn't know we had to bring toilet paper. There were only 2 rolls in the complex for 4 days. Not a huge deal but had to make several trips to the store. There is a very nice walmart and publix only a few miles away. I would love to stay in Santa Rosa beach again. And would definitely rent property from Bert in the future.

The condo was very clean, attractive and comfortable. The furniture was comfortable and stylish. The beds were more comfortable than my own at home! I always hate most of the mattresses when I travel, but these are outstanding!!

Bert our contact for our reservations was awesome, kind and professional. Loved working with her. She made our stay just perfect.We will be back for sure... Thanks for a perfect holiday!!

BEWARE!!

  • 2 of 5

It looks like this condo had a facelift since we visited in May for our honeymoon. If the owners are the same proceed with caution!! The evening of check in we pulled back the covers to find orange stains (cheese puffs?) and hair on the sheets. We later found obvious food remnants in the kitchen. We alerted the management and were placed in another condo (much better unit) for the evening. Albeit, we had to move at 10 o'clock at night by the time all was sorted out which made for a long first day at the beach. We moved back in the next day. However, when unit was being cleaned the condo filled with smoke due to spilled grease in the oven. The cleaning crew was extremely nice and apologetic but the oven couldn’t be cleaned due to the spill so we had no use of the oven or stove. The locks were also changed the next day which took a few hours our of our evening as well.

In general, it was run down and fixtures needed updating, especially in the shower. The balcony was dirty and I didn’t want to sit on the outdoor furniture, therefore no balcony relaxation. Again, it has had a facelift so maybe there are new owners. I would check. My parents were former owners so I have reasonable expectations. Ironically, my parents were staying at an adjacent property (through a rental company) and while the condo was smaller it was far, far nicer and less expensive.

We had to request a refund for our trouble (no compensation was offered), it was only partial and minimal. Pretty disappointing compared to our experience. While the property manager seemed very nice and professional, she did nothing to facilitate receipt of our refund even after texting a reminder. Well, I am still waiting for that refund which was NEVER received!

Oh, I did see a snake as the reviewer mentioned below. It was hanging out on the first floor at the bottom of the stairs on the walkway. However, it was just as startled as I was but I think it lives near the air conditioning unit.

These types of experiences make me very wary of vacations by owner. It's a hard situation for owners. If you book through a rental resort site, the condos are rated and they are accountable. Unfortunately, owners don’t receive as much compensation through resort management firms. Owners like these who don't keep their properties in good condition or follow through on their commitments put the good owners at risk.

Owner's Response: I was totally shocked and so disappointed when I read this review.. To begin: (1) The guest arrived late at the unit, and when she called me that the unit was not ready for them, (which was fairly late in the evening), I immediately put them into another unit until I could figure out why this unit was still dirty. I even suggested to them that they STAY in the alternate unit the rest of their stay, but they INSISTED to move the next morning. (2) Yes, we did have to have the locks changed...but I was present the entire time, and guests did not have to "hang" around and loose beach time. (3) Guest allege that their parents had a nicer, but less expensive unit, however guests did not stipulate that the unit parents rented was a hotel room and not a fully equipped condo with a kitchen and two bathrooms. (4) I kept apologizing and trying to make sure guests were taken care of and they seemed so nice until I read this comment 5 MONTHS LATER. (5) I do not understand the mean spirited comment, especially when I have had several returning guests who love the unit and location.

Nice Enough...

  • 4 of 5

The condo is nice and clean, and does have a bit of a sea view. Beach access was easy enough...just across the street, and beautiful. However, you are looking out directly over the pool equipment, more than the pool. And there is a pond with a sign that says "beware of poisonous snakes"...a bit disconcerting. The agent was wonderful to work with on this reservation.

A very nice Getaway

  • 5 of 5

This property was absolutely delightful. Nicely decorated, very clean, close to restaurants, beaches and shops. We even arranged to stay an extra day. The kitchen was well equipped with good looking dishes ---and again very clean. A previous review disparaged the balcony area---but we found it to be in very good shape (small---but large enough for two to sit comfortably).

Only one criticism---and it is a tiny one---the pool equipment is visible from this unit. I would recommend that the property (if safety codes allow) put in a full sized lattice wall (rather than the current half wall).

We have had very good experience with every VRBO property. Thank you!!
