Some things were broken and not well maintained Loved the location overall great vacation
Love everything great family gathering.
We really enjoyed our stay. The only issue we had was the air conditioning seemed to have a hard time keeping up. The house was nice and roomy with just a short walk to the beach.
The house was as listed and pictured accurately. Other reviews mentioned the beds were uncomfortable. I only slept in one (the master), and I agree it wasn't comfortable due to how firm it is, however I did not wake with back pain. If you like firm mattresses, you'll love it!
The refrigerator gave us problems. When we got there, the refrigerator had a patch of condensation on the freezer door under the ice dispenser. This right away gave me pause. It was difficult to open the door because it was frozen shut with frost at the dispenser. It was extremely difficult to get it to dispense ice at all because the path was blocked with frost build-up. I did not contact anyone about this because who wants to take time out to handle repairs on vacation? But it cooled just fine on both the freezer and refrigerator sides.
I should have brought my fire stick, because the channels provided by the antenna offered little for the children (not that they spent much time watching TV).
The only REAL disappointment was with the community pool. It closed at 8:00 instead of 10:00 because the lights were out and one of the pools was roped off altogether. The man who told us we had to leave said the lights had been out all summer. I personally find that unacceptable and this issue needs to be resolved. My son was burned the first day so swimming after dark would have greatly enhanced his stay.
The maintenance on the exterior of the homes also needs improvement. I have been staying in this community for around 15 years (we usually stay in The Beach Castle, but I had fewer guests this time) and I can see that things are not what they were. My adult children grew up coming here and I hope to continue that tradition with my 10 year old and future grandchildren. In addition to that, the friends I brought this time usually stay at orange beach in a high occupancy condo complex and fell in love with this community, the less densely populated beach that provided ease of watching their children, and the water was SO clear and pretty that it was blue/green this trip. So I hope something is done with property exterior maintenance in the community as a whole because I adore this hidden gem of a community and hope to continue staying here in the future with guests.
Wonderful home and great location!
Had to leave early because of Hurricane
Overall stay was ok. Had great family time with our kids and grandkids. Reason for the 3 stars, is all beds were uncomfortable. The master bed sink in the middle, so I woke up every day with backaches. One of the queen beds were hard. The worst thing was the freezer did not get cold. We list alot of meat because of it! House was clean and well kept.
Tiffany, thank you for your review. We are so happy you had an enjoyable stay with your family, but we apologize that some aspects of your trip fell short of your expectations. This homeowner strives to provide all guests with a 5-star experience at their beach home, and they will take a look at all the mattresses to ensure all travelers are comfortable. They have also had the refrigerator and freezer serviced so it is back to functioning as it should be. Thank you again for giving us the opportunity to improve and we hope to host you again soon! Best, the Evolve Team
