“Fantastic as usual!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 27, 2012

Once again, Beacon Resorts hosted us for a great stay at Sea Oats. We have stayed many times and are always treated like family. Once we had car trouble and the office staff helped us find help and made sure we were OK. The rooms are large and clean, the beds are always clean and comfy, and the kitchens well stocked and efficient. We usually go with the entire family - grandkids and all. We have lots of room to play around the pool. We love to stay on the first floor where we can sit out by the pool and watch the kids play, and we can easily run back and forth to the room. The location is great and the property is not cramped like many. It has a nice relaxed atmosphere and we so enjoy the stays there. Thank you Beacon!

We have stayed at Sea Oats many times and have always had great experiences. The rooms are large and always clean. I am surprised and skeptical of some of the reviews here; we have never had any of these complaints and neither have our friends who have stayed here. We especially enjoy the huge pool and pool deck that is large enough for a crowd and our large family. The location is great and the staff always friendly and accommodating. The beach is beautiful there and it is never too crowded to enjoy. We regularly take our entire extended family to Sea Oats for a big family vacation and it is awesome. Sea Oats is one of our favorite places to go to relax and enjoy the beach.

i had family coming in to town for Thanksgiving, so we rented a three bedroom condo at Sea Oats on the 7th floor, gulf front. We could not have been happier! The unit was nice and large enough to have everyone over for dinner on Thanksgiving day. The weather even was warm, and the kids swam in the heated pool! As usual, the beach was stunning! The front desk people were very helpful, we live in FWB so we talked with them a lot before we booked. I would recommend Beacon Resorts site to anyone.

My daughter and I stayed here Aug 6-13. When we arrived I called the owner to tell him no AC. I made numerous calls, text & emails, he didn't respond. Another owner I spoke with advised me the renters the prevous week complained of the SAME thing. I finally got him on the phone and it took 36+ hours to fix the AC. Here's the rest. BED BUGS in Master Bedroom, Mold/Mildew in both bathrooms, DIRTY, DIRTY DIRTY unit, garbage disp didn't work, ice machine didn't work, no dish towels, no dish rags, no wash cloths, only 4 SMALL bath towels. Also, the HOA pays for cabel & internet, but the owner has this unusable unless you bring your own ethernet cable. I spoke to the president of the HOA and he said they have lots of complaints on this unit and this owner. The complex itself is nice, but stay away from this unit. I've hired an attorney to get my $$$ back.

We stayed at Sea Oates #202 thru Windfall Properties and it was discusting!!!!!!!! Black mold under the mat int he shower, black mold on the door, poop on a pillow sham, an inch of dust on the celing fan, ceiling fan in the master bedroom could only be put on low any higher and it would shake of the ceiling and make noise! The dishwasher wasn't working, the iron didn't work properly, the cups were so sticky and gross, the fake plants had so much dust and sticky! The couch had dried up white something running down the front, the blinds did not work in the guest room so people could see in walking by, the blinds did not work properly in the master bedroom, blankets with big holes in them. The rug in the master bath was filthy, dust and things left over from other guests left under beds and couches! No light bulb in a lamp, found two bugs in the bed...I could go on and on!!!! Windfall says sorry and thats it....this place is a health hazard and Windfall needs to do a much better job!!! I stay on the island 2 to 3 times a year since I'm from the area and I have never in the past five years of staying at a condo had this kind of problem. I've never had a problem with any of them except this one from Windfall Properties. Do not rent from them!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Our family also stayed in this condo and it is infested with BEDBUGS! Owner knows of this issue and keeps renting it. Do not stay here! Others recently are still having this issue when renting it!

From what we read from previous reviews, most of the problems were with Beacon Management. They are no longer on site and many owners have gone with other management companies. The owners of this unit has gone with a private company and we have had excellent service. When we arrived on New Year's Day, we had trouble with the lock and the repairman was there within an hour. He ended up having to change out the lock. I was impressed with this service on a holiday! Unit 702 has been updated and the owners have replaced furnishings and TV's. The den has a 47" flat screen and you feel like you're at the movies! Both beds have memory foam toppers which are great to sleep on. The pool is great and now that Beacon is gone it is heated in the winter. The beach is beautiful and the location is great-close to Hwy 98 and restaurants withing walking distance. We had a few special requests and the owners were very accommodating. This unit is rented on VRBO and we plan to return next winter!
