The property is beautiful and the location is like paradise. Unfortunately the property management company, Royal Destinations, was not so great. Whenever I called with questions, they would refer me to "The APP" They were enamored of their APP. Instead of just answering the question, They would tell me, "this is on the APP." I couldn't find any info on the APP. Finally after about two days of this, one of the agents said, "oh, there are two apps. You must be on the wrong one." What?? Why did no one tell me before that there were two apps? Even after we finally got on the correct app, it wasn't really that helpful. In their defense, they were very prompt and helpful in fixing the broken air conditioning and even provided us with fans. Not so helpful with the stuck door out to the deck, or the malfunctioning propane grill, which we were unable to use during our entire stay. No one explained how the beach chair rental service worked. We had to go out and flag down the guy who was setting them up. We never met any of the rental agent staff except the maintenance man. At other homes we have rented, a staff member met us at the home and showed us around when checking in. No one called or came by to see how our stay was going or if we needed anything or had any questions. And I think they could have provided more than a sample supply of dish and laundry soap.
Hi Mrs. T. For starters, we're glad you enjoyed your time at Sand Dollar. It truly is one of the best Gulf front homes on 30A. However, we also appreciate your candor regarding your experience, as this is actually fantastic feedback for us as we roll out our new guest app for the first time this season. Our intent for the mobile app was always to have it enhance (rather than replace) our hands on, personal approach to our guest experience. And so far this season, we have had dozens of positive responses to the additional layer of communication and easily accessible information it provides. However, we also need to acknowledge that this isn't always the best option for our guests when they have a specific need or question. In light of your comments, we have retrained and refocused our guest experience team to remember it is people first, technology second. Please stay with us again for your next visit to 30A and we can assure you that you'll see this in action!
We had a great week on the 30A beach!This property is right on the beach with the access two houses over from this one. It was so nice to have chairs right there the first day!
There are MANY lovely breakable decorations in the home which was hard for our baby and preschoolers. Being a three story home was also hard for us with the baby and preschoolers.
The pool was great. It was very littered with leaves when we arrived and the next day. I notified the rental company who replied they would contact the HOA about getting the pool cleaned. It was cleaned on Tuesday of our week.
