Not as advertised
When we first walked into the unit we noticed that the unit was in need of general maintenance. When we looked at the couches we were disgusted. We called the local property manager and were given less than adequate customer support. Basically the only option the manager gave us was to check out and get a full refund then use the refund to rent another place. This was after we had driven 12 hours to get there and knowing that it is June and everywhere is full. A better response would have been to at least let us send her the pictures of the cushions instead of refusing and stating “I know the unit is clean, I have pictures from 3 weeks ago. “. Or maybe offering to send someone over to steam clean the cushions would have been appropriate. I have pictures of the filthy cushions, peeling paint from the window seals, missing paint from the cabinets and drawers, and the severely scuffed coffee table. I did not get a picture of the smoke detector in the master bedroom that was missing the battery, or the extra pillows without pillow cases (we had to buy pillow cases and sheets to cover the couch). The carpet throughout the unit and the curtains in the first bedroom were nasty and stained. Also there were no pot holders to be found in the kitchen. The dryer took 3 cycles to dry even a modest load of towels.
I would post the pictures but the website will not let me. Ignoring the obvious maintenance issues the bathrooms and beds were clean. The kitchen was reasonably well stocked with cooking utensils and supplies.
We have rented from VRBO multiple times in the past and this is by far the worst experience we have ever had in one of their units.
The location and the beach were good. We were close to Destin so we could eat and the views of the ocean were spectacular. The free chairs and umbrella were very handy as well. The life guards were amazing in keeping us informed of changing weather conditions. The boys enjoyed the pier that was close by the unit.
We have stayed at Island Princess the last 9 years but our first time staying in this unit.
We have stayed at Island Princess the last nine years but this was our first time in this unit. Island Princess is a very clean & beautiful condo but we were a little disappointed with this unit due to the fact the king bed has a hump & the pillows are flat, we had several light bulbs that were out & this unit needs fresh paint. We have already booked at Island Princess for next year but not this unit.
A very warm and pleasant stay.
The condo was very spacious and well furnished with plenty of linens and dishes. The deck was large enough to accommodate 4 or more people at sunset, of course. Unfortunately, the place does suffer from some deferred maintenance - needs a new stove and refrigerator. The furniture, although comfortable, has been well used. The back bedrooms are very quiet and the place lends itself to a large group for dining and entertainment. The location in the building is wonderful as it affords an uninterrupted view the full length of the beach.
Beware of renting it over Thanksgiving week as it seems a very large group of people
(families) gather there at the Princess for the week and virtually take over the premises. Any problems are attended to promptly by maintenance through Legacy Vacations. They are a very attentive helpful group. All in all, we enjoyed the place very much - it just needs to be updated.
The pool and hot tube are wonderful including the work out room. Very clean and well maintained. Parking is no problem with easy access to the building. Convenient to the Crab Trap Pier, etc. and Publix, the grocery store.
Great vacation experience!
Amazing view and accommodations! Great access to the beach. We had an amazing time! The only thing that I would say that was wrong was the sliding glass door to the balcony in the living room needs some maintenance work, could have been a hazard with small children. We just used the sliding glass door in the master bedroom. Everything can't be perfect. Overall we thought it was amazing!
great and I would love to stay again
Everything was as described. The property was clean and great customer services. I will try and book with them next year.
