Great for multiple families and kids!

Second floor porch is great - this is where we spent most of our time! Beach is such a short walk from the house. No high rise condos near the house make for a relaxing, empty beach!

it was not as advertised!!

  • 1 of 5

Let me start with the description online: no living room, dining area, or kitchen on first floor, only 2 bedrooms separated by porch, one is separated from upstairs as you have to go upstairs by entering from exterior by outside stairs or through a lock door downstairs. The second floor had the living room and small table (seats 6) and 2 barstools. Remember the description says sleeps 13, but not enough seating inside for 13 to eat at a table. The balcony was nice, but 2 wooden picnic tables that you couldn't move out of the sun to eat out there. Also on the balcony, there were plastic chairs for seating: 5 chairs, not too sturdy. And the description stated 5 DVD s, but there was only 1. Back to the kitchen which was poorly stocked with basic cooking needs. There were not enough silverware for 13, only 7 forks and 1 teaspoon. Also not enough glassware, 2 iced tea size glasses. No sharp knives to cut up meat or even cut a watermelon. Cookware was inadequate as there was not even a baking sheet and only 2 sauce pans with lids. No pot holders, one kitchen towel and a disposable dishcloth to last 1 week and no scouring pads to clean the pots, which I had to clean before using, and an old refrigerator with ice trays, but nothing to dump ice into. No clothes hangers in any of the closets. Old cast iron tubs in 3 of the bathrooms. One positive thing is it was built to last and should have a sign stating "I survived Hurricane Ivan in 2004". This place was definitely overpriced for the quality as this was the 3rd year I had rented a house on the beach, and this house fell way below my expectations based on prior rentals. But we didn't let all this spoil our week. We enjoyed the pristine white beach and as always were awed with the Blue Angels..

Owner's Response: Hi Drusilla, You are so right about the description on our main website. It was incorrect. We are in the process of updating it. We will also add more to this channel to help be more clear. It was never our intention to mislead. Something just got lost in translation between our own departments and staff. As for the other issues, we are restocking and repairing. Thank you for letting us know and we are glad that it did not spoil your vacation. Pensacola Beach is a terrific place and we hope to have you back!

Our stay at the Sand Dollar

  • 4 of 5

Location wise it was absolutely wonderful. Just across the street from the beach and a couple of miles from restaurants and shopping. Luckily we checked the propane tank on the BBQ about an hour before starting dinner and when I called the office they sent someone out immediately with a replacement tank. We checked in on a Wednesday and the trash outside was already overflowing, trash pickup supposedly was Monday. We had nowhere to put the trash except next to the trash cans. We called the office and they picked up the trash on the ground, but did not bring a replacement can or empty the overflowing one. they said that was the trash company's problem. This was not one of the better stocked homes we have stayed in, but we made do with what they had. We ate every meal outside on the balcony overlooking the ocean, awesome view! The first day we were on the beach the Blue Angels flew right overhead, so exciting for the grandkids to see. the next day we took a short drive to the naval station to watch the Blue Angels practice, of course that was an awesome show. We would recommend this place to others, however the instructions said bring extra paper towles, soap, toilet paper, dish washer soap which is great if you are within driving distance, however our entire family was flying in from several parts of the country which meant a few extra trips the store for items that I feel should be provided

Owner's Response: Ms. Wampole, Thank you for your feedback regarding your stay with us. We appreciate you taking the time. We apologize for the situation with the trash and have already touched base with our team on the matter. We will also address how the rental is stocked. We are so glad you were otherwise able to enjoy the view and beach, as well as the incredible aerial show put on by the Blue Angels! Thank you again for your review. ~The Southern Team

If location is important, this is the place. In the water in 2 minutes from front door.

Could use some small repairs. Commode lid broke, light bulbs out.

All in all my family enjoyed our stay and the beach was great.
