Guestbook comments from the manager

We had a wonderful time at Almost Heaven. We have a large blended family with multiple age groups that were free to come and go. the kids loved the freedom of being so close to the beach, pool and Seaside. We loved it so much we are looking to do it again this year.

Not quite Heaven

  • 3 of 5
We have stayed in other places in Grove By the Sea and were expecting this property to be close to the same quality. We grilled 2 nights and on the 3rd night, we ran out of propane. We contacted the maintenance service and he told us where to get a new tank (supposed to be reimbursed for the $50 fee). There were no hot pads, trivets or oven mitts in the kitchen. Not enough dish towels either. We ended up using hand towels from guest room bath. You can't pull both racks of the dishwasher out or the entire unit comes out of the cabinet!
The master bath shower had mold in the grout. There were no hangers in the closet.
The guest bath toilet was loose and the sliding shower door kept coming off the track. The drawers in the dresser/night stands in the guestroom would come right out in your hands when you pulled them out half way.
There is a big "bubble" in the hardwood floor in the living room in front of the entertainment area and various slanted floors throughout. The batteries were dead in the TV remote and burned-out light bulbs out by the grill.
All 3 trash cans outside were overflowing when we arrived, but Mr. West (maintenance service) was kind enough to come pick it up on his own. There was no information book to tell any specifics about the house i.e. trash days, nearby attractions, etc... Mr. West told us the trash day was Tuesday, but we just happened to be up early enough to hear it come by on MONDAY so we got it out in time.
We love the neighborhood but feel this house needs some TLC.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the review of our property. We are sorry that you had an unpleasent experience while staying at our home. We do recall a propane tank request being received at 8:15 pm and we were able to offer the option for you to purchase a refill and be compensated at twice the price or wait for delivery within the hour. You chose the first option of being reimbursed. We were happy to be able to take care of that for you. The previous guests did depart earlier the day of your arrival and left the trash receptacles full. We did provide the service of removing the trash so that there was no wait until Monday, which is the normal trash pick up day. We are sorry for any confusion on our part regarding the right trash pick up day. We will be sure to correct that for our future guests. We wish that we would have had the opportunity to correct the other issues during your stay, but were unaware that there were any. We are sorry for the problems that you encountered and understand that this can be terribly frustrating during a vacation and you should not have to be inconvenienced at all. Please accept our apologies and know that we are discussing and making corrections as a team, and as needed so as to avoid similar problems for guests in the future. We do hope you will give us another chance and come back to this home in the near future.

Good overall but room for improvement

  • 4 of 5
We have stayed in many condos and houses along the gulf coast. We really like Grove By the Sea and have stayed in another house in this neighborhood in recent years. Our stay in Almost Heaven was good but there were a few details that were below the standards we have become familiar with.
Location to beach, location to pool, neighborhood, size of house, bed options.
dishwasher not bolted in to cabinet, dishwasher door would open mid-cycle and not finish, leaving soap on dishes (I happened to be standing near when it happened once so we were watching for it to happen in future washings), no dish rags, hot pads, oven mitts (only had 2 large dish towels for kitchen)--when property manager was made aware of this, he brought new kitchen setup, only one bike at the house but the description mentioned 2 (property owner came to house and brought second bike), grill was in horrible shape--rusted through underneath (when I complained to property manager, he brought us a gas grill---was dirty and cooked unevenly but was much better than original), mother-in-law mentioned the comode in the downstairs bathroom was loose.

We really did enjoy our stay and appreciated the property. But the fact that I had to even call the property manager was uncommon. The fact that the property manager had to take action (more than once) to correct issues at the house was extremely uncommon. Mr West was very patient and helpful and we appreciate his diligence in correcting the issues we made him aware of. The only problems we made him aware of were kitchen linens, missing bike, rusted out grill.

We are glad that Mr. West was able to promptly resolve the issues during your stay and are sorry for any inconvenience that this may have caused. Please be advised that Mr. West and our team have discussed your review in detail and Mr. West is working on a solution to the dishwasher, we do wish that we could have fixed that during your stay.

Loved our stay at Almost Heaven! this was our second summer staying in the Grove by the Sea neighborhood. The house was Great, we cooked great meals in the well stocked kitchen, grilled, played games around the table and there was plenty of room for everyone to have there own space.

Good Times at Almost Heaven

  • 5 of 5
We have stayed at Almost Heaven multiple times AND we are going back in June of 2012.---Of the many postive aspects about A.H. the location to the beach may be the best. A 5 minute walk or 3 minute bike ride gets you to the Beach. Since it is located in the community Grove by The Sea and off of 30A - you feel like you are in the country-but you can hear the Ocean at night.The kitchen has everything you need for a big breakfast and a fresh cup of coffee. I wake up early before everyone else and have the wonderful options to sit out on the screened in porch or in a rocking chair on the front porch. The occasional neighbor or vacationer will walk by - it is nice to share a hello. The charcoal grill provides grilling options or there are many fine or casual restaurants a quick drive away and a few a 15-20 minute walk. Our daughter is 8 and she loves the kids room-bunk beds. The neighborhood is bike friendly and one of the 2 neighborhood pools is right across the street. Most of the time we had the pool to ourselves. Seaside is a short drive away or a 10 minute bike ride away. I love Seaside, but prefer a more laid back place to stay--like AH. If you like the beach but love a quiet place to rest and fellowship with your friends and family--Almost is Heaven is....almost ....perfect.
