Not Satisfied

  • 3 of 5

Upon arrival the pool was dirty! The pool guy did arrive the next day, cleaned the pool but it took an additional 2 days to clear up. We could not get the golf cart to operate but they did come and showed us the trick with the pedals to operate it. We had problems with it the entire trip. The dishwasher is very old and does not clean the dishes. The washing machine leaks water and rust plus ruined many of our clothing. The dryer squeaks extremely loud. The washing machine and dryer is just very old needs replacing along with the dishwasher. The property appears much larger than it actually is! The houses are very close together in this sub-division and the beach is a long walk from the property not just right across the street as stated. I will not rent this property again.

Owner's Response: Here at Tropical Breeze our goal is to ensure that all of our clients have an enjoyable vacation experience. We are very sorry to hear that your recent visit did not meet your expectations -- in addition to the 10 inquires that made during your 7-day stay we have taken the following corrective actions to address the additional concerns outlined above. Furthermore, if you would ever consider staying with us again we would be happy to provide a discount so we may have the opportunity to serve you and your family again. 1. Pool: The pool is serviced twice a week on Saturday and Wednesday. When we were contacted on Sunday the pool company come out as soon as possible which was Monday to check on the cleanliness of the pool 2. Golf Cart: We responded immediately to this to find there was nothing wrong with the golf cart and worked without any issues. There is no trick with the pedal. Once the renter was shown how to release the brake the golf cat worked without any issues. If there were other issues we were not informed. 3. Location: The property is located .2 miles from the beach access indicated on the map at the bottom of the VRBO website 4. Washer: We were made aware of this problem on Thursday night of your stay and we replaced the washer on Saturday 5. Property Size: The home is 1600 sq feet and comfortably sleeps 10, this is stated on the VRBO website Thank you again for your feedback and if anyone has any questions about the above please do not hesitate to contact us.

Destin Snowbirds

We enjoyed every day in this lovely Tuscan home. It was so nice to get out of Ohio winter for a month. Jessica and her family were top notch answering any questions we had. Telling all of Dublin, Ohio to visit.

Fabulous week with the grandkids

  • 5 of 5

We really had a great stay in Destin with our kids and grandkids. The house had everything you could ask for. Kids loved the swimming pool. The private beach was only a couple blocks walk away. The area was great, quiet cul-de-sac with all the restaurants and shops just 10 minutes away. The house was very clean and comfortable.
