This was our families 20+ time to Ft. Walton/Destin but first time at Sea Oats. We booked through VRBO which has never let us down until now. The price was right so my mom booked unit 111. We knew it wasn't beach front but were ok with it. We got in sat night around 7-8. We were pulling out bed linens from the master closet and noticed they were soaked! Turns out the first bathroom shower LEAKS into the closet/walls! So that left 4 people using 1 shower! Then we discovered the air conditioner/water heater drain was blocked and leaking UNDER the ceramic tile into the first bedroom! Then we noticed water under the windows in the master bedroom as well! We contacted the owner's daughter who said she'd send out a repairman the next day. She apologized and that was the last I'd 'hear' from her. The repairman finally showed up later in the day while we were out and 'steamed cleaned' the wet areas of carpet and unclogged the drain but he said there have been problems here before. So I'm sure there is mold ALL over that condo!! I had to call again the next day because there were issues getting our 'included' beach chairs but my phone call was never returned, or the one prior to that! (turns out we just used the owners last name and we were fine). I emailed 'Hope' telling her our disappointment and she did respond. She stated that the last renters had no issues and she's never had any complaints, perhaps they were blind?!?! Her father is in charge of reimbursements but I've yet to hear back from her! It made for a stressful start to our vacation but from ALL the other guests we met that stayed there, they said Sea Oats was pleasant and they are working on remodeling. If you're looking to stay here perhaps use Sea Oats rental company or even VRBO for units 404, 308. We met nice families that stayed there and said they were very clean! Do NOT use VRBO # 132212!
