We had an amazing week and have already booked for next year. The home is emaculate and the view of the Gulf is perfect. I love the dual master suites. Thank you for sharing this beautiful home!

Gorgeous Home with some Hidden Faults

  • 4 of 5
Overall, this house was very nice!! In fact, it was the nicest house we have ever had at Crystal Beach. My husband's family has been going to Crystal Beach for over 40 years. This was our first trip without our grandmother, mother and father, as they have all passed away during the last 2 years. So, we decided to head to the beach to keep the family tradition going and to make them proud. Upon arrival, we were very impressed with the location and the house had the "wow factor" when we first walked in. We had a total of 14 people. The house fit our family's needs in the fact that each individual family had their own bedroom and bathroom. And, the bunk room (with a closest that turns into an awesome fort), was perfect for the kids. The whole layout was perfect. Having T.V.'s in the bedrooms was definitely a plus, though, I never watched mine. And, the W/D off of the kitchen was very convenient. The A/C was fabulous and kept us quite cool. I do have a few things I wanted to mention that are not so great. Not having Wi-Fi is not so good. The kids couldn't play some of their games, use Ipods, etc. And,
we had no phone service in this house anyway. All but one of us had AT&T. We had to go to the end of the driveway to get service. So this is something people need to be aware of before renting this house. The ice maker never worked. It was bone dry when we got there and never produced a single ice cube. The owner's initial response was that "its been fine". But, we noticed loose ice in the bottom of the freezer so we know the previous renters had purchased ice as well. Not that we expected the ice maker to produce ALL of the ice we would need but we did expect it to "make ice". The kitchen sink leaked all the way down unto the carport the second day we were there. We had to call the owners and a plumber arrived 2 1/2 hours later. Then, later in the week, the upstairs Queen master shower leaked into the kitchen. The plumbers came right away that time. Another 'bummer" was that I, personally, had to take two cold showers in the first floor "gorgeous" shower. I got up at 6:30 a.m. and let the water run for 10 minutes hoping hot water would appear, but no such luck!! The kitchen had hot water and so did the upstairs showers. Only 2 mornings did I have a hot shower. The website did say it had a gas grill and an outdoor refrigerator. These did not exist. Overall, we expected more from this luxury home.

Owner's Response: Hi, thank you for taking the time to review our cabin. I just wanted to respond to a few of the issues that were brought up. The phone service is not good throughout all of Crystal Beach, it's not something that we have control over and believe me, we wish we did. The previous renters never told us that there was an issue with the ice maker and we are in the process of having it repaired. I will be more than happy to issue you a credit for your needing to purchase ice during your stay. We were never made aware of the fact that you did not have hot water in the downstairs shower and we would have been willing to let the plumber repair it while they were out. Today I contacted the current renter and they stated the hot water was working fine. We are sorry that you had plumbing issue while you were there. As for the Wi-Fi, outdoor refrigerator, and gas grill... please accept my apologies as we don’t provide those things. We do however provide a charcoal grill.

Thank you for taking the time to write this review so we can better serve you in the future.
