    a guest from gainesville, ga does not recommend this vacation rental.

    We were so looking forward to our trip this year to Seacrest. I searched hundreds of condominiums and found one that was directly on the beach, I had a kitchen, and appeared to be more upper scale. I went on YouTube and searched for videos of the unit in advance, asking the rental agency in advance for additional photos to be certain we pick the right place. I even told the rental agency we have been burned before by picking the wrong place they have misrepresented photographs online. The view is amazing, but the distance from Rosemary is 10 minutes not five minutes as represented by the agent. The unit is old, infested with mold. Immediately someone stole our parking place the first day and we did not have parking for the remainder of the trip. I reached out to management they told me to handle it myself. I reached out to the towing company they recommended, and the towing company would not help me because the management company did not have a contract. Instead we had to park sometimes across the street, in other people spots, I sent video and photographs of the people going to and fro their condos to the vehicle in our spot to the agent he did nothing (Cole). I even texted them and emailed them. The unit was covered with smokers. They were smokers adjacent to our condominium they were smokers at the pool there were cigarette butts all over the pool of which I photographed and videoed.There are signs all over the rental contract stating no smoking.They were beer cans all over the pool that were not picked up and beer bottle caps all over the parking lot. At night the pool is not open, it closes at 8 PM and the lights are broken. I reported this three times to my agent and he did nothing. Also we had stompers above us and all around us. It was so bad we could not sleep.

    Elizabeth C from Potomac, MD recommends this vacation rental

    Location: 5+ stars. Beautiful view, SO easy to haul young kids and beach stuff right down the stairs to beautiful beach. We've stayed in/around Seacrest Beach several times before and this was our favorite location by far.

    Condition of Condo: 3 stars. Not great condition (toilet paper holder kept falling apart), little bit dirty (sand on the floor even when we first checked in, I had to kill a roach in the kitchen on the second day), amenities not great (you could only pick up wi-fi signal in the bedroom, no dish soap??, washer/dryer VERY small and no laundry detergent even though they ask you to start a load of sheets/towels on the day you check out??, only ONE roll of toilet paper for a family of 4 for 5 days!, etc.) Kinda reminded me of staying in a college dorm room, random mis-matched kitchen equipment, etc. We never contacted the management company because there wasn't anything "broken" that needed to be fixed (short of the toilet paper holder I guess). This is NOT one of those places where you're like "wow, this is great, they have thought of everything, it feels like home". It feels more like a cheap hotel.

    Overall: 4 stars. Like I said above, everything worked, it felt safe, location was awesome, price was reasonable, so we made it work without too much fuss. Just want people to know what they are getting.

    Having more kitchen supplies; i.e., utensils, etc. would have been more
    helpful. Wifi wasn't working, which was very frustrating; spent the first three days of my vacation dealing with management, service provider and owner trying
    to find a remedy. Condo land line doesn't work. This condo is very basic, but the location is one of our favorites on 30A. Would come back to Blue Tide, but
    stay in a different condo.

    Karen B from Birmingham, AL recommends this vacation rental

    This is a great condo for a single traveler, a couple, or someone with a smaller child. The king bed in the bedroom is very comfortable. The comforter & shams need to be replaced. We did not use the couch bed, so I can't say if that would be comfortable. We also did not use the stove/oven or tv, so I can't speak to those either. The unit is quiet and appeared well-kept. It is older, so don't go in expecting new, modern everything. The table & chairs on the patio are in good shape & the view is beautiful. It is a 1-2 mile bike ride to the Hub or to Alys Beach area. The bike path is easy & fabulous though!

    That's right, our stay at Blue Tide 3A was so close to the sandy beach it was like "Living in an Ocean"! The direct view of the ocean from the condo is what you dream of. Not only was the beach just a few steps from our door, but so were all the restaurants and sites you could ever want as well. Upon our arrival we found the condo very clean and inviting. We knew the moment we entered the condo that we had not booked a long enough stay at the Blue Tide! Everything you might need is furnished, form A to Z, it's provided. We also enjoyed the well kept pool. It was quiet, very clean, and inviting. We can hardly wait for our next stay at Blue Tide! This place is a winner for sure!

Units 4A and B left outside lights on all night, every night and the bedroom was like sleeping in daylight. The refrig handle was broken and needs to be replaced. Otherwise, a great stay as always.

    We left home with snow on the ground; we arrived at Blue Tide and found a gorgeous sunset occurring over the Gulf. We had very few difficulties during our stay, but the few we did have were met with very prompt attention and resolution. The unit was very clean and well appointed; colors blended with the sea and sand. We were able to "live" very comfortably for the 5 weeks we stayed. Our neighbors were very friendly and the daily Gulf front "shows" were spectacular. The beach changed daily depending on tides and conditions, we experienced dolphin shows from our patio, and the sea birds were ever present. We were so relaxed when we left, we knew we wanted to come back!

    a guest from Little Rock, AR recommends this vacation rental

    Love this location. This condo is right on the beach. You do have to walk down several steps to the beach, but it's worth it. The pool in the parking lot is very small but clean. The beach is gorgeous and not crowded at all. You can easily bike to Alys and Rosemary Beach where there are small shops and restaurants. You can drive to many great restaurants too.

    The kitchen is very nice and open with a view of the ocean. If you plan to cook, I did notice there was not a pizza pan, pizza cutter, muffin pan, or a pan with a lid.(not a deal breaker, just pointing out) They did have a blender, toaster, wine glasses, wine bottle opener, colander, cutting board, stock pot, plenty of knives, a few measuring cups, few serving bowls, and the usual plates, cups, and utensils.

    There is a full washer and dryer. The pull out couch is not comfortable for an adult, but was ok for children. If you have more than 2 people, you may want to bring extra pillow cases and towels. There were plenty of king pillows, but only standard cases.

    Courtney P from Norborne, MO recommends this vacation rental

    Overall, our stay at Blue Tide 3A was pretty good. When we arrived, there was a leak in the bathroom ceiling, which the cleaning crew had placed a bucket underneath to catch the dripping water. We notified the rental management company of this and it was fixed within a few days. The condo had recently been redecorated, so the furnishings were nice, but there was a mildew smell in the apartment that was somewhat overpowering...I'm guessing from the carpet in the living area where people had entered from the doors leading down to the beach. They had also ran an electrical wire under the back entry door and tried to somehow secure it with duct tape, so it kept coming loose every time the door opened, which I thought was just poor maintenance.
    The condo location was perfect. Steps to the beach and the beach was not crowded and not overrun with tourists. I thought the check-in, check-out process was a little vague...I wasn't sure if we were supposed to notify them when we were leaving or not. We also had a bike rack stolen from our vehicle when we were there, so that was disappointing.
    Overall, we had a good stay. The cost of the condo was a good value for the area, and the location couldn't be beat. I would stay in that area again, definitely.

    a guest from Evansville, IN does not recommend this vacation rental.

    I will begin by saying that we got a discounted deal for last minute and so we take that into consideration. Wasn't nearly as nice as many places we stayed along the panhandle. It was the area that played into our not being as happy other places. Up on a bluff and not walking out directly on the beach, again, just general area. Washer did not function properly first 3 days. Garbage disposal leaking. All of which were nicely handled by manager. Very very minimal necessities. Virtually no decent utensils, no kitchen linens or bath washcloths until we asked.Then given 2 towels and washcloths from the Dollar General plainly. Baseboard and cords pulled from walls. Hung in main entrance on the door every time we walked through. Sad lighting, especially in kitchen. Every other light bulb burned out in the other areas. No starter laundry soap toliet paper, etc. Generally dated with exception of furniture. Generally clean but tile grout pretty dirty. Don't think bedspread washed in sometime because I'm sure won';t fit in washer there. Sheets however clean so okay. Lots of improvising. Unhandy grilling area with no area for eating outside. Sad basic tiny pool. Again, manager very personable and friendly but totally felt like we just "got what we payed for"

    Blue Tide was a great stay with a few minor exceptions. The dryer was broken upon arrival, and there was no notice about it not working. In fairness, it was fixed three days later. Also, the mattress on the bed in the bedroom was not good at all, nor was the mattress on the sleeper sofa. It was very old and should have been discarded.
    As for the property, it was wonderful, and I appreciate Cole's help with the dryer.

    Great facility, great location. Staff did well with one exception: I had told the lady that I wanted a place on the beach because I am up in years, and walking is a problem for me. She gave me the beach proximity, but apparently she did not get the "walking problem" part. She put us in a condo that had a total of 50 steps to use to get to and from the beach. An owner-resident told me that this is the second highest location from Tampa to Harlingen Texas, and I believe it. Consequently, because of the physical strain of having to climb that many steps, I made only two trips down to the beach over the 5 days we were there. Bummer! She should listen better.
