“A great Orange Beach option”
Reviewed July 1, 2013 via mobile

We stayed at Seaside for four days on a quick beach trip. Our unit, 5515, was clean and comfortable. We had a great view of the ocean and large community pool. We were able to watch dolphins swim by from our balcony. The walk to the beach was short and easy. We enjoyed the secure parking, in-unit washing machine, and easy check in and check out process through Meyers. I would definitely recommend this rental to others.

A few helpful hints:
-Bring your own pillow
-Be prepared to hear others checking out early in the morning with noisy carts loaded with luggage
-Eat at Lulu's

Condo was clean when we checked in, quick walking distance to the beach and the pool (maybe about 5 minutes with 2 kids in tow, so that's saying something). Nice, relaxing balcony (but wear shoes...splinters!). Relatively quiet, couldn't hear the folks playing tennis when in the room, sometimes the people upstairs would get a little noisy but nothing terrible. Kitchen is stocked with plenty of pots, pans, utensils and cooking appliances however its very disorganized and no cabinet space to put any food you might purchase so you will have to reorganize the kitchen yourself or leave all the food on the counter. The hot water runs out very quickly. This building does not offer a bathroom close to the pool or the beach so you will have to go all the way back to your room (which gets old with small children in the hot summer sun). The decor is outdated but charming, however there is quite a bit of clutter, something decorative on every flat surface it seemed so if traveling with small children this can be quite challenging and even if not, doesn't leave you with a lot of space to put your own things away.

Worst place i have ever stayed. We arrived to a very dirty condo. The furniture looked liked something from an 80's movie. Horrible lighting, Cracked Tile floor, Cheap carpet(who puts carpet in beach front condo) Dollar store patio furniture, no remote controls for bedrooms. This place is not kid friendly. Elevator was broke. I WILL NOT RECOMMEND THIS PLACE TO ANYONE. HORRIBLE

-Decorated with outdated, worn out furnishings
-Dirty upon arrival - filthy floors with food crumbs and sand on them, dirty countertops, dirty bathtubs
-Killed several roaches during the week
-old, uncomfortable beds
- televisions in bedrooms are old, 13-inch (small) with no remote
- television in living area is very old
- only vcr/dvd combo in unit did not work (missing cord)
- ice maker in wet bar did not work and had a note on it from May 25 repair visit that said it needed replacing
- vent in bathroom did not work
- balcony had old, rusted table and 2 chairs - rest of furniture were cheap, flimsy plastic chairs
- Had difficulty getting door to unit locked every time we time we tried to lock it. Had to use a screwdriver every time
- The elevator nearest our unit was out of order for the 1st 4 days of our stay.
-No drawers/dressers or mirrors in bedrooms. TV is on a flimsy, plastic shelf which I would think would be against codes for fear of being pulled over by children
-had high speed internet, but must have an ethernet cable to access - which we weren't told to bring, so we had to buy one upon arrival
-not kid friendly with no dvd player, dirty, small bedrooms, no kiddie pool - no room for pack and play (had to put in a closet)
I can live with out of date furnishings if the unit is clean. this unit is very basic and stripped down. It didn't even have any rugs or doormats, therefore, sand was everywhere even upon arrival. I have been to Destin and Orange Beach for about 25 years and this is the worst unit that I have ever stayed in. Rented through Meyer Realty, and this is definitely not up to their standards and I can't believe this unit is on their list of represented properties. However, the Seaside Beach and Racquet Club as a whole is an older property, but very well maintained. We had 3 condos with our party and the other 2 were exceptionally decorated and maintained. Although it is advertised that no buses are allowed, there were youth groups that traveled by bus, they just loaded out on the highway. The pools were large, easily accessed, and very well maintained. a pretty good property, just a terrible condo. I hope this review if helpful because I wish I had read this review before we rented.

We have stayed at Seaside Beach and Racquet Club for the past three years. This year we stayed in unit 4510, which we rented through Liquid Life. We were EXTREMELY disappointed. We were charged a $100 cleaning fee, for a condo that was dirty. It was obvious the condo had not been dusted for sometime, and we found dirty socks and shoes near the couch! When we checked out I spoke with Liquid Life staff about the condo condition and asked if we could get a credit for the cleaning fee and they said no. They gave an excuse that the cleaning company had been only with them for 8 months and they were not used to cleaning all the condos when they were sold out. I am not sure why this was our fault.
