What makes this Townhouse unique
Not being a high rise - Island Mist Unit C offers more of a right at home feel. The children can play in the backyard while you grill or sit on the porch drinking your choice of beverage with an amazing view. End or begin your day in the hammock - gently swaying to the wind and the waves. Beach service with 2 umbrellas/4 chairs allows you the stay in one place on the beach all day. We considered dogs on a case by case basis starting August thru February. Some breeds are prohibited - so check with the owners. Okaloosa County does not allow pets on the beach.
Minimum age of primary renter:25
100% refund for cancellations more than 60 days before check-in date. 50% refund for cancellations more than 30 days before check-in date.
Disappointed with overall home - Beach access was only great feature
We stayed in your property June 22-29, 2019 and I must say we were EXTREMELY disappointed with the condition of this beach home. The cleanliness of the unit was for lack of better words NON-EXISTENT. There were stains down the blinds in the living room, black mold on the inside of the refrigerator doors, broken and uneven tiles in the living room (with little feet running around this was a HUGE concern for me as a mama), mold around the bathtubs and not to mention the entire lower floor had water damage in the walls and ceilings (paint literally peeling from the ceilings). The kitchen counters had crumbs and what looked like broken drywall pieces along the edges of the counter. Truthfully, it shocks me that there was a "cleaning service" that came in prior to our arrival. How is a negative review about some of these issues that was left in Sept 2018 still an issue in June 2019??
We were not even notified of first floor water damage, mold/musty smell until the afternoon of us checking-in. Not leaving us with much of a choice to do anything, but deal with this for a week during our stay.
Honestly, the pictures online do not reflect the condition of the home in person. Every single beach toy, chair or accessory that was advertised in the description of the home was either completely rusted, broken or just trash. There were no hammocks and the front patio that shows a beautiful set-up with rocking chairs, dinette set and potted flowers was all overgrown with weeds, no rocking chairs in sight, broken and rusted dinette set and just trashed looking. I personally would NOT recommend this property to another especially for the price we paid. The one and ONLY good thing about the property was the access to the beach, but this wasn't enough for us to get past all the other issues of the home. Such a shame.
My husband even spoke to the owner in Jan/Feb of this year when discussing our potential booking of the property and the owner assured my husband he was blocking the property off for the entire month of Feb/March to address the issues of repairs. Clearly, that was not done.
We will be back to FL next year for another family vacation, but will not be back to this home unfortunately.
We have stayed at this property in June for years. A couple of years ago we noticed a leak in the ceiling on the bottom floor during a hurricane and we reported it to the property manager. The previous owners were very communicative, they were there that day to patch it and were so kind and apologetic.
This year, the same leak appeared but MUCH worse. Every time it rained there was a constant drip from the bathroom ceiling and beach facing bedroom. It was so bad that pieces of the ceiling fell on to our suitcases and personal belongings. We again reported it to the property manager.
Although she was apologetic, she and a crew of contractors showed up to the condo without warning at almost 9pm. We had to wake people up to show them the leaks. Letting us know that someone was coming and what time they would be there would have gone a long way. She left that evening after seeing the first 2 floors and said she would be back in the morning to see the top floor as we were not able to wake those couples up. We were prepared for them that morning and they never came.
They also removed the first floor fridge which was a major disappointment. Especially after we purposely looked at the pictures before arrival to make sure it was still there.
The stairs to the beach are rotting and dangerous.
There has been no updates to this property in years, yet the price continues to increase.
After our experience, we decided to move our entire group of 30+ people that stay in these condos and the ones nextdoor to a different location next year.
No updating done but price increased.
Those two rocking chairs in picture are both broken. I went outside on the top balcony to enjoy my coffee. Wiped off the chairs from the rain and found both to be broken. No sitting up there! Ceilings look like they could fall in any minute from water damage. We all ended up with runny noses and wondered if there is black mold from obvious water damage through the years. We have stayed here over 14 times with great memories. This however was not a great memory. There is new owner this year and price went up. We were expecting newly updated place since increase in rent. Nothing seems to have been touched. Reported water dripping inside window from the rain. Deck on second floor is buckling and wondered if we would fall through. Super location but don’t plan to come back. For what we paid we feel like we can find a better place. Very disappointed. Would not recommend unless you want to over pay for poor quality.
Thank you for bringing this to our attention, we will start working on the issues right away. I wish you could have spoken to us to let us know instead of a review like this. I will have maintenance out this week. I know you have my cell number. Please feel free to let me know if there where other issues. It was nice meeting your family when you drove in. Krista
Been staying here for a few years, always liked this place.
Clean, plenty of room,very convenient to the beach. Just needs a weather control button for the rainy days.
The townhouse was absolutely perfect for our family vacation. It's right on the beach, has a beautiful view, nicely decorated and the kitchen is more than equipped with appliances, dishes, pots, pans, etc. It's close to the grocery store and local restaurants. The air conditioner drain started leaking during our stay, we called them and they had someone out to fix it ASAP and never interrupted our stay. All in all, we would definitely rent this place again when we need that much space.
It was a wonderful place to stay and the service was excellent. Very pleased!
