Wonderful week with friends in Laguna Beach

  • 5 of 5

Wow! This house is a gem! The owners have really gone above and beyond most other rentals in the area. Each room is spacious and well equipped with towels, televisions, pillows, and ceiling fans. The kitchen is well stocked and the owners have pictures labeling where everything is located. The double oven was a pleasant surprise and made cooking for 8 much faster. The refrigerator is huge and we loved having filtered water instead of sink water. The walk to the beach was very short. The owners have lots of beach chairs for guests. Cleaning up the sand daily was easy because we had a broom, vacuum, and mop. The owners provided ample trash bags, paper towels, dish soap, and kleenex. The remodeled shower was amazing! We loved the older model washing machine because it was so simple to use. (Some of the newer ones can be difficult to figure out!) We loved having the fenced in yard for our miniature schnauzer. Laguna Beach is our favorite vacation spot and this home is at the top of our list for future vacations!

Owner's Response: Thanks for noting all we gift our renters. We try to leave products/supplies every vacation home needs but most do not provide. No one wants to shop for supplies that you use only once or twice. It's those little things we leave for you that bring our repeat renters back. Please come back.

Great house! GREAT BEACH!

  • 4 of 5

The house was very clean. There was everything you need in the kitchen from plates to different pots. Everything was fully functional and operating with ease - central heating, fridge with ice maker, washers / dryer, etc. Towels were also provided which was a great addition. The wireless Internet was phenomenal - for our stay of 7 days, I had to re-log on my laptop only once!! The furniture in the house is stylish and expensive with lots of decors.

My only recommendation is about the things outside the house - the pillows on the porch need cleaning, the furniture in the gazebo in the back yard is not functional as well as the beach attributes in the outside bins. In my opinion, it would be better if non-functional stuff is just discarded.

I have to describe the beach. This was the most amazing beach I've have ever been to!!! Due to the very few people there, it felt like a private beach. We drove all the way from New Jersey for that beach. The sand is white powered. The water is warm and clear and small fish swim around your feet. You can watch the sunrise and the sunset.

Very peaceful! Amazing!!!

Awesome place to stay. Great house Great beach!

  • 5 of 5

Shelby, AL

This home is wonderful, it's in a great location, just a short walk to the beach, and it was very comfortable for our family. This home had everything we needed and then some, everything in this house is very nice, from the furnishings, to the dishes. Our dogs had plenty of room to play outside The fenced in yard was great the dogs loved the big back yard and not having to be put on a leash to go walk them. The grandkids loved it as well they would run around and play at night before bedtime. Every room has a tv, & dvd player. They had a great selection of movies. The free WIFI was a great bonus as my grandkids love to watch there on tablets that we brought with us. We really enjoyed having the wagon to take our cooler, chairs, towels, & toys to the beach, which by the way were all provided. I have already been recommending this home to family and friends looking for a very nice place to stay, especially those with pets, not many places have such a nice yard fenced in for your pets. The owners have been very accommodating to make sure that you stay was as wonderful as their place to stay in. I hope in the future this property is available to stay in next time we are in PCB!

great beach, not great house

  • 3 of 5

The location was great because it's an easy walk to the beach. The house was not so great. I asked a few questions about the various fees prior to my arrival and was met with an argumentative response so that started the experience on a negative tone. I know this is not a hotel, but we are still paying customers.

When we arrived, the flower beds had 2 feet of weeds growing in them, the foliage growing on the fence is overgrown, and the back yard needed to be cut. The "amenities" like beach chairs and stuff are nice to have and we used the good ones, but at least half of them are in disrepair, rusted, and/or broken. They are also not neatly organized, half are in a container and half are piled up outside. The outside needs a good overhaul.

As soon as we walked in, the floor felt grimy and dirty with visible sand, dirt, and dog hair on the stool bases (which I would expect after a week of use) but it should have been thoroughly cleaned before I arrived since I paid a hefty cleaning fee. I brought the state of the house to the owner's attention and was told a different cleaning crew had done it and no refund or discount for the sub-par cleaning was offered.

On a good service note, the master bathroom faucet was loose and someone came to repair it the next day.

The kitchen was functional and everything worked, but needs to be updated if people are spending hundreds of dollars per night to stay there. It all worked, but none of the appliances match (white oven, black microwave, stainless fridge) and the cabinets (mixed brown/white and old) and countertops (half layered granite tiles/half laminate). The main bathroom was nice and updated, but the masterbath needs the same attention because it has not been updated.

The fireplace looks nice until you get up close and see the caked on dust behind the glass, it is very outdated, and the hearth has a gap in the tile work that looks like the tile is going to fall off.

It was nice to have beach chairs and towels, but not that big of a deal when the other issues are taken into account.

Overall it was ok and we had a great time at the beach, but I didn't not feel like I got my money's worth in terms of the house. It was my first experience with VRBO and this location. I liked the beach and location, but was not impressed with the house. I'm not trying to be mean, this is just an honest documentation of my experience. I really enjoyed the location and would definitely come back to this area.

Convenient location

  • 4 of 5

It was my family’s first trip to Panama City Beach and we love the white sand & beautiful clear water. The house is conveniently located in walkable distance to the beach. Since we came during off season the beach wasn’t crowded, which we love! Although rain was in the forecast most of the days luckily it didn’t ruin our stay and we got to enjoyed 3 out of the 7 days we were there. The weather was perfect. The house has everything you need for the beach which is a huge bonus. There was a gas grill, beach chairs, toys and umbrellas. Although most of the umbrellas were broken. We only found one that was usable but had to use the bottom portion of the pole from a different umbrella. We managed to make it work. The owners provided plenty of useful information about the area as well as towels & cookwares. The house was clean & comfortable. I think a nice coat of fresh paint would make the house more appealing otherwise it’s a wonderful house and would stay here again. It’s conveniently close to pier park & other attractions.

Owner's Response: Nanlee, I love that you said it's a wonderful clean beach house. The inside was freshly painted in the spring and the outside is to be painted in the fall. Apparently you liked all that we leave for our guests to go to the beach. Every weekly rental is also sent a list of all the kitchen supplies we leave for the entire week. (dish, dishwasher, washer soap, tin foil, Saran Wrap, plastic bags & trash bag and more). We ask everyone to email or call the day you arrive if there is something missing or broken. We are happy you enjoyed your stay and hope you come back. thanks, Eileen & Mike Eileen & Mike
