Excellent! Fun Family togetherness.......loved the open concept
Wish the deck was bigger
Thank you for your review! We are so happy to hear that you and your family enjoyed your stay at this lovely gulf front home! We hope to welcome you back again soon!
We just finished a wonderful week-long stay at Dune Dancer. We had no trouble with wifi, plenty of dishes and towels, and we parked one car in the garage and one car and two BIG trucks in the driveway. We thought the beds were comfortable and the furnishings nice. Loved the 30 second walk to the beach! There were 12 of us and the accommodations were perfect! We will stay at Dune Dancer again!
Thank you so much for your review! We are glad you enjoyed this gulf front house! We look forward to having you back again soon!
Excellent beach front location. Needs major updates.
Gorgeous house. Perfect location directly on beach with beautiful views from huge master bedroom upstairs. Needs updating. Beds are very uncomfortable- thin mattresses, one pillow each to sleep on and they were paper thin. Linens were cheap and outdated. Blinds easily fell off their mounts in kitchen because one mount was broken. Broken window near front door, some light fixtures/ceiling fans were chipped or broken, one garage door wouldn't open so we could only park one vehicle in garage and THE WI-FI SIGNAL WAS SO WEAK NOONE COULD GET ON INTERNET MOST OF THE TIME. Such a great house- just needs updates and a complete makeover on mattresses, pillows, bedding, and of course the wi-fi. Gas was left on 2 eyes of the stove upon our arrival. We had to air house out. Some door locks were tricky and there was a shortage of bath towels.
Thank you for your review. I am pleased you enjoyed the amenities, gulf front location and the amazing view! Your feedback is extremely valuable to us, as we strive to improve with each and every stay. “Dune Dancer" is a favorite of generations of guests to Santa Rosa beach! We greatly appreciate your comments about the mattresses and bedding that need to be updated. We will share your feedback with the owner and suggest an update. Regarding the work order items- broken blind, garage door, broken window and chipped light fixtures, we will get them taken care of. If we had been made aware of them during your stay, we would have fixed it ASAP. We are very sorry for any inconvenience this may have caused. Unfortunately, when the housekeeper was cleaning the stove that day, they did move the gas knob to the on position and our inspector did find that upon your arrival. We provide 5 bath towels per bath and we are happy to supply more to guests upon request. The wifi signals do go in and out here at the beach, and we will look into getting a wireless router booster for the house. Rest assured, as I said above, the proper attention will be paid to your concerns. We hope that you will accept our apology and that you will trust our services in the future.
Can not beat the view!
Pros: Fabulous view/ closeness to beach /
The main floor - kitchen, dining and living room were great - with the view of the ocean is fantastic
Cons: TECHNICALLY sleeps 14, but not comfortably in my opinion. A queen sleeper IN the master bedroom? I was on a girls beach trip, so sex was not an issue, but ... The 2 bedrooms "off the garage" is only for small children or teenagers - it's a little weird being off an unfinished garage (which you can't park cars in) Also futon upstairs is technically to sleep 2 of the 14 ...
Parking - only parking for 3 SMALL cars
Kitchen is only modestly equipped - can't imagine cooking for 14 - it was hard for 10
Owner has padlocked kitchen pantry - not acceptable - we had food stuffed in every cupboard available.
This is minor, but they had a loose leaf notebook entitled "Property Inventory" with photos of everything, including the utensils in the kitchen drawers and the plastic hangers in the closets. Seriously?? I realize SOME vacationers will steal things, but I did not appreciate being treated like a criminal ...
Finally, I thought the furnishings, other than the main floor were cheaply done. We were at Dune Dancer on an off-week, so we weren't paying top rates, but ...
GREAT VIEW THOUGH!!
Thank you for your review, and you are right, the view is great. We apologize for the Inventory notebook - it was not intended for the notebook to be left. The housekeepers refer to the inventory notebook, which includes photos, in order to make sure furnishings and decorative items (which sometimes get moved around by the guests) are properly placed within the vacation property. Very rarely, if ever, have vacationers taken any items from a home we manage and the inventory notebook was never meant to suggest otherwise, so we are sincerely sorry if you found it demeaning in any way. Other than that, we are happy you enjoyed the house. It's a great place and very popular among our guests.
