Additional sleeping accommodations are located on the second floor of the property. An airy Queen Suite with a Queen bed and a flat screen TV overlooks the front of the property. Passing the full bath with a shower/tub combo that services the second floor, guests will find another Queen Suite. The bedroom is complete with a Queen bed, a flat screen TV, a DVD player, and a private balcony that overlooks the famous art district that lies below!

The third floor of the property hosts the roomy, bright living areas. The living room is complete with seating, a large LG flat screen TV, and a Sony sound system. The gourmet kitchen features the highest quality stainless steel appliances and two dining areas (a smaller one off the living room and a larger one off the kitchen) provide dining seating for nine. A half bath services the third floor living area.

The fourth-story rooftop deck offers guests unparalleled views of the gulf and the surrounding community of Seaside. In addition, the famous food trucks, the Seaside Theater, and the white-sand beaches of the Emerald Coast are all within walking distance!

Fabulous location... disappointing property

  • 1 of 5

I picked this property for our family vacation because of the charming and convenient location in Seaside. When we arrived at 5:00 pm the floors were very sandy, one bathroom was very dirty (obvious the toilet seat had not been cleaned after a messy person) and there was very heavy dust on the base boards. The two bedrooms that face the courtyard need some type of curtains for nighttime... you can see right in. Although the kitchen was attractive, it was not functional. The stovetop and oven were a nightmare to try to cook on... 30 minutes to boil water... everything burned on both! Very difficult to operate. The cookware was stained and not very appealing to cook on so I went and purchased a new skillet... stove top ruined that one, too! The living room carpet had a cracker on the floor and the slip covers on the furniture are stained and nasty. There are 5 TV's in the unit... none worked... reported this day 1 and a guy came out and said they wouldn't work for some reason. On the day before we left the realtor called to check about our stay and I mentioned this that morning... at 6:30 pm when we are all getting back from the beach and getting ready for the evening, a repairman comes and starts working on the TV's!!!! I asked him to leave! I would loved to have had a broom to sweep up the place... I felt like we were sliding in sandy, dirty floor all week. Not equipped very efficiently. For the location in Seaside and the price I would expect a more clean and attractive unit. I would not reserve this unit again. Property manager or owner need to investigate a new maid service.

Owner's Response: Hi Gabriele! We apologize for our delayed response as we tried to figure out what exactly happened here. After doing some research, it appears that we sent our housekeeping department out again to clean the unit at no extra cost. None of your other stated issues were reported until our team called you. This was the day before departure and why someone was sent then to check on the issues you reported. In addition to that, we sent a tech out after you left to examine the property. Everything appeared to be in proper working condition. We apologize that your stay was less than five-stars. Desire is in fact a great home in a pristine location. We hope to have the opportunity to show you a true five-star experience here in the future.
