Virginia F. from Corpus Christi, TX recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in August, 2015 This was my first experience using VRBO and I have to say I was more than presently surprised! The condo was spacious, clean and in great shape! The property itself was extremely clean and well maintained - I would recommend this property and Alicia Hollis to anyone!
Property Manager Response: Response from Alicia J. Hollis, Realtor So glad you enjoyed this stay. We hope you will come back and see us again.
Debbie R. from Water Valley, MS recommends this property. Stayed for 5 days in July, 2015 This was a family vacation with my husband, my adult son, my adult daughter, with her husband,11 month old, and 2 teenage sons. The condo was very spacious and we loved the ground floor! Not having to wait on elevators is always a plus. And being able to walk out the back a couple of steps to the boardwalk and right to the beach was wonderful! We would definitely stay here again. The only problem we had was the sliding glass doors were hard to open and close.
Property Manager Response: Response from Alicia J. Hollis, Realtor We are so glad you enjoyed your stay at the Surf Dweller and we hope you will come back and visit again. Thank you for letting us know about the sliding glass doors we will get that looked at.
A guest from Franklin, TN recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in October, 2014 This was a great trip for our family of 5 for Fall Break. The condo was spacious and clean and we loved having the full kitchen. It was also great that we could just walk out our patio and walk just a few steps and be on the bridge leading to the beach. This location was perfect and would definitely stay in this unit again. Just a couple suggestions would be to have some air fresheners throughout the unit as there is an odor mainly in the living area. We never could really pinpoint what was causing the odor, but it smelled mildewy. We bought some air freshener and used it throughout our stay. The only other thing is the sliding door from the living room to the patio was very difficult to open. It did not slide very easily. None of these things,however, would deter us from coming back. Thank you Alicia Hollis, Realtor for a relaxing trip.
A guest from San Antonio, TX does not recommend this property. Stayed for 31 days in August, 2014 The condo was spacious and clean but the furniture was dated. The location was nice with a spacious patio but the view was a little obscured because it was on the first floor. AJ Hollis the realtor company was awesome and addressed all of my needs immediately.
great unit, great location, great value, smelly couches
Reviewed by: A guest recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in July, 2014 We arrived in Ft Walton about 3 hours before check in, but the folks at Alicia Hollis let us check in early since the condo was ready. Check in and check out were quick and simple. Positives: We needed a condo big enough to house 6 adults and a 1 year old, so we chose this 2 bed 2 bath unit. The unit was very clean with plenty of room. The master bedroom is huge. The guest bedroom had 2 queens, but still had room for the pack and play for the 1 year old and an inflatable twin bed for one of the adults. Everyone slept well. The beds were quite comfortable with memory foam on the tops. Bathrooms worked very well. The appliances and utensils were modest but quite functional. There was a utility room that had a washer and dryer, which was a pleasant surprise. The patio level has many positives. With a small child, we could exit out the back of the unit and go directly to the beach and return easily. The patio had it's own hose to wash off when returning. A lot fewer steps than if staying on other floors. The patio area was quite large, approximately twice the size of the balconies above, with room for several deck chairs, two tables, a lounge chair, and plenty of room left on the concrete for beach supplies such as a canopy and other equipment. These didn't have to be trucked through the condo, saving a lot of sandy clean up. This location was very relaxed, but it was also quiet.Negatives: the living room couches had a certain odor that resembled pet urine or mold or something. Febreeze couldn't mask it for long. This didn't cause problems, but it was unpleasant. The kitchen did not come with paper towels and coffee filters, which we thought would be there. The oven takes quite awhile to preheat, and may be on its last legs. One bathroom came with one roll of toilet paper, the other one with only two rolls. The front screen door wouldn't latch, although we didn't use it since the AC was on. The back sliding doors worked reasonab
Property Manager Response: Response from Alicia J. Hollis, Realtor Thank you for the input. We are glad that you enjoyed the condo. We will have someone take a look at the couches as this is the first time we have heard this complaint. We hope you will come back and stay with us again.
A guest from Vestavia, AL does not recommend this property. Stayed for 3 days in July, 2014 I was very disappointed in this condo. It was very rough, needs updating. There was a question if the linens were really clean. The cost was extremely high. Parking was terrible.
Cindy M. from Hoover, AL recommends this property. Stayed for 5 days in June, 2014 We really enjoyed our stay in this condo. The only complaint I have is that the thermostat would not cool below 73 degrees. It stayed closer to 75 most of the time, even when it was set lower. This was not a problem to me, but I can see it being an issue for someone who was hot natured. We enjoyed the large patio and being right on the beach. There is a dune between the patio and the water, so you do have to walk a few feet over to a bridge to get over that. We would definitely stay in this unit again.
Brenda B. from Snellville, GA recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in May, 2014 I was very pleased with our condo. We have been staying at the Serf Dweller for many years in one of the other units. That unit was not available so we rented unit 104. It was a wonderful place. We were happy it was clean and on the beach. First floor. My group agreed it was a good experience.
A guest from Hurlbert Field, FL recommends this property. Stayed for 30 days in August, 2013 We have enjoyed our extended stay in the condo. It is in a great location and we enjoy first floor living. Yes, we have sandunes in front of the patio but they do not block the view; they add to it! The condo is spacious and comfortable. The linens and some of the outdoor furniture need some updating but other than that no complaints. Amanda at Alicia J. Hollis Realtor has been very helpful and friendly. We have enjoyed working with this company and will definitley tell our friends! Great family vacation place or somewhere to call home temporarily.
A guest from Hurlbert Field, FL recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in July, 2013 Terrific condo right on the sandy white beach! We love that you can literally go out the back door, walk a few steps and then you are on the boardwalk & beach. Complimentary beach chairs(2) and an umbrella are available from beach attendants. Spacious and comfortable for our family of four-plenty of space for everyone(and then some). We had seen many condos along Okaloosa Island and this is one of the largest 2 bedroom units available. Master suite is exceptional and second bedroom is very roomy too. Large closets. Kitchen is nice and updated-fully stocked with dishes, utensils, coffee pot, etc. Large living area. You will not be disappointed! Thanks,Amanda, at Alicia Hollis Realty!
Jeanne K. from Lake Arthur, LA recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in July, 2013 The condo was very nice and clean. We loved being on the ground floor for easy access to the beach. The large porch was enjoyed by everyone. It was nice for the kids to be able to play in the sand at the edge of he porch when we didn't want to be on the beach. We had red flags for most of the week (the water was rough and wasn't as pretty as usual), and the kids were afraid to get in the Gulf, so they really enjoyed the pools. One thing I would ask the owners to think about doing would be to add a lock on the front door, high and out of reach of small kids. My 4 year old was able to unlock the deadbolt and open the door by himself. Overall, we had a wonderful vacation and would love to visit again!
A guest from Cibolo, TX recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in July, 2013 The condo was beautiful and met all our needs and then some! The only down side was on the evening of July 3 and 4 parking was unavailable (there were lots of cars without parking passes) We reported this to the real estate agent and he said he would look into this. We loved everything otherwise!
Property Manager Response: Response from Alicia J. Hollis, Realtor Glad you enjoyed the condo. Sorry about the parking issues. We did pass this along to the on site management and hopefully they will address this before your next visit.
Theresa K. from Midwest City, OK recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in July, 2012 We thought the condo was very nice, however, the view of the beach was blocked by the dunes and the photo online didn't reflect that or we probably would have chosen another unit. Hopefully the screen door on the front door is fixed as it locked us in, but maintenance promptly came over and let us out!! A great stay, good price, and will probably visit Surf Dweller again.
Barbi W. from Conway, AR recommends this property. Stayed for 5 days in July, 2012 The apartment is on the ground floor and seaside. There is a small dune in front of the patio, disappointed at first, but I found I loved it! I could sit on the patio and view the beauty of the dune, it's grasses and oats, and have a beautiful view of the ocean over the dune without the view of sun bathers to detract from it. The location was really central to our activities.
A guest from Greenwood, MS recommends this property. Stayed for 5 days in July, 2012 We had a wonderful time and the condo was great! We have never stayed on the bottom floor and wasn't sure we would like it but it was great. The beach was not packed in front of our condo and the complimentary chairs just added to how great everything was. If I HAD to say something that could be improved, the ice maker (not the one in the freezer) wouldn't make much ice and some of the rugs needed cleaning (in bathroom). But other than that, we would love to come back and stay!
