Hannah's Haven

  • 4 of 5

I loved the property, closeness to the pool was awesome. The house had everything we needed in it. The microwave handle had been super glued on not by us, was like that when we got there. It came off after the second use of the microwave. Parking was a real issue as we had more than two cars, we figured it out. When advertising overflow parking it would be best to let people know there are only 9 spots, we would have been more prepared. Overall had a fabulous time.

The house was great for our family vacation. We had a party of 12 and there was plenty of room. The location right across from the pool was especially nice for the kids. The house was clean and fairly up to date. I would give a word of caution to familys with toddlers, the stand under the TV in the first floor living space is not attached to the wall, as a result my grand daughter (18 months old) nearly pulled it over on herself. Fortunately we caught it before it fell on her.

Nice house for a big family or several families.

  • 4 of 5

This was a nice house. The lagoon pool with zero entry was a real plus for our little ones. For a house that could sleep 15, the kitchen was a little boxed in, but besides that, it was very nice. The description of the unit stated that it was 500yds which might have been stated as closer to 1/2mile. The shuttle that ran to the beach had very limited hours and we ended up driving to beach access, where there was limited parking. We had a problem with our refrigerator not getting cold and a maintenance man was dispatched on Sunday in a very timely manner and fixed it. The property management company who handled my reservation was very nice on the front side of our stay. I only had a problem after we checked out. The staff that takes care of the unit came in after we had checked out and claimed that 2 of the 15 amenity bands we were given were missing. So when we arrived home and I looked at my email, I saw that I had been charged $50 for the two "missing" bands. Let me say that I know for sure that there were 15 there when we checked out because my sister and I had both counted them. After arguing with the representative (who in turn, talked with the on-site property manager), they refused to believe me. I think this is what ruined my perception of the whole vacation. I spent well over $5000 on the week's rental and they refused to make it right. I wonder who gets this money. If the property management company did this to each of their renters, that would be a nice little bonus for them, being that the engraved bands themselves cost less than $.10 per band (as I looked them up on the internet).

I will not book with them again, as their service recovery was subpar.

Owner's Response: Hi Terri, we are glad you found the house nice and loved the zero entry side of the large lagoon pool in the neighborhood. We're happy to hear that our maintenance guy handled the issue with the fridge not getting cold quickly and efficiently. We have a sign up next to the basket of wristbands in the homes advising guests of the costs of losing them, regardless of how much a guest paid for the vacation. While I'm sure the actual manufacturing costs of the wristbands are low, we have to purchase them from the Village of Crystal Beach homeowner's association, and replacing them can be pricey, which is why we have to charge our guests for losing them. We appreciate your feedback.

We stayed at this lovely home several times and the views are beautiful! Sitting out on the front porch watching everyone enjoy themselves was so very nice and relaxing. The home was very spacious and accommodated our party of 14 very well. The kitchen was well equipped for our grilling and cooking needs. We can't wait to come back and we will definitely stay here again!

House is beautiful but...

  • 3 of 5

I did like the house however I was not impressed with the kitchen. Kitchen was too small and the pots, pans and kitchenware were very used and not in good condition. Carpet was dirty and we could have used a good broom and dust pan to sweep the floors. Some of the matresses in the main rooms were very hard and uncomfortable. I did however like the washer and dryer. The layout of the house was good. Bathrooms were nice and remodeled. It does need new mats. The one's there are old. Other than that it worked perfectly.

Owner's Response: Thank you giving us your feedback on this lovely home. We are glad you enjoyed the layout and the washer/dryer. We hope you also enjoyed the close proximity of this gorgeous home to the pool and its convenience to the beach. The RealJOY Fun Pass provides you with TWO Free Tickets to Daily Activities for this home, so we hope you took advantage of that. The kitchen is a standard size for the homes in Villages of Crystal Beach and most guests find the size ample for more than one person. The owner actually came to check on the kitchenware and found the kitchen utensils to be in good shape, the owner found one pan in need of replacing, so replaced it and added 5 more new pans. The owner also replaced the one mat (there is only 1 mat located at the front door) because some of the decor rubbed off during the season. This is typically the time of year that we deep clean the carpets for all our properties but this owner has actually decided to replace the carpet and will make sure there is a broom/dust pan for guest use. This home was just built in 2007, so is still pretty new. Again, thank you for your feedback, we hope that you enjoyed all the wonderful qualities that this property has to offer.

Hannah's Haven is heavenly!

  • 5 of 5

We very recently rented this property for 3 couples and 5 children. The house is spacious, well stocked with kitchen necessities, nicely decorated and well maintained. It's in a great location close to stores, restaurants and especially the pool and beach. I loved the balcony on each floor, the grill on the porch, laundry room and the very comfortable beds. The pool area is wonderful as well which goes from zero entry level to six feet, has an outdoor kitchen area and hot tub. Everyone was very nice, trash is picked up daily, its secure and just an AWESOME find for the price. There is a trolley to the beach, Acme Oyster House is just a few miles away, affordable groceries and beach needs are available very closeby. Harborwalk and Crab Island were two great destinations just minutes away. The house has everything you need to feel right at home. I'd definitely recommend it to anyone visiting the beautiful Destin area!
