October 2019 Stay
We were very pleased with By the Sea. The house was very clean and what we had hoped for. However we had lots of maintenance issues during our stay. During the first night we lost power to the entire back of the house. During the same night both AC units went out. We also had to take cold showers due to a lack of hot water. I will say that each time we called the emergency line they were quick to call us back but we did have to wait over 12 hours for AC.
I did read several reviews about the lack of kitchen utensils, etc. We had enough kitchen items for the small amount of cooking that we did but I can see where more pans, etc would be useful to a family that plans to do more cooking.
I found the location of the house to the pool to be excellent. It was perfect for my children to go in and out to the pool.
We found the beach to be a 5 minute drive via golf cart. I highly recommend reserving beach chairs before you arrive if you plan on renting.
The app is very helpful and we found the staff to be courteous.
August 2019 Stay
We had a great time this past week. The home is beautiful and spacious. You walk out the back door to the huge pool area. There was plenty of room for all 5 of us (3 adults and 2 kids). The beach and shops are within 4-5 minutes. Thanks for sharing your home with us!
Hi Sandra, By The Sea and its community pool are perfect for families with big and little kids. We are glad you enjoyed your time there and we hope to see you again soon.
Excellent new property
Gorgeous home with the community pool directly behind the house. Beach is within walking distance (about 1/2 - 3/4 of a mile). House is a beautiful new construction. WiFi was a little spotty so bring some board games in case of rain for the little ones.
We are happy to hear that you enjoyed your stay at By The Sea. It is a great new home in Highland Parks, a fantastic community on 30A. We hope that you visit our beautiful beaches again soon.
June 2019 Stay
We really enjoyed our stay. It was perfect for our family. The downstairs was open and spacious. The bedrooms were good size for 6 adults. There were plenty of towels and it was nice to have the washer and dryer for convenience.
We cooked a lot and the kitchen had basic cooking supplies. It could use a few more serving utensils, maybe a crock pot, etc. The pots are stainless and we didn’t have cleaner for that. Thank you for the initial set up for cleaning. I always bring extra but this was nice.
If I had a complaint it might be that the downstairs 1/2 bath needed a blind or window covering. You can see the next house and their upstairs window from the bath. Also the vacuum didn’t clean very well, we just used the broom.
The beach access is a somewhat short bike ride to Blue Mountain access or Gulfview Heights access. We found the GH access to be more spacious and clean. You need to drive your beach items there and park. We rode bikes too.
Overall, it was a GREAT VACATION!! We will be back❤️‼️
Hi Beverly, we very much appreciate you taking the time to share your experience at By The Time with us. We are thrilled to hear that you enjoyed your stay and found the perfect beach access for you and your family. We hope to see you again soon.
Great property but in a construction zone
This is a great property that backs up to the community pool. Our only complaint is that we wished the owner/management company had disclosed that four houses are currently being built across the street. They work from 7am to 7pm. We woke up to trucks unloading, beeping and/or hammering every morning. You can also hear the construction from the pool. Otherwise, we liked the community and the property.
Thank you for your feedback. By The Sea is a great home and Highland Parks is a fantastic community. Our little town is booming which means new builds and renovations all over. We hope that you come back to our beautiful beaches soon.
Great place to stay!
The property manager was very helpful.
The vacation rental was very clean.
I was very happy with the location.
I was very satisfied with the condition of the vacation rental.
Overall, I recommend this vacation rental.
We had a great time in Santa Rosa Beach. This house was in the perfect location on 30A. We loved that it backed the pool, which was an awesome pool by the way. The house was clean and equipped with everything we needed for our week stay!
Hi Stephanie, we are so glad you had such a great time in Santa Rosa Beach. By The Sea is right there by the lagoon pool and it makes it feel like it is almost your very own. We are thrilled the home was clean and had everything that you needed. We hope to see you again soon.
