We really loved the location of this house and the view from the second floor bedroom was great! However, the house needs some TLC!!! The furniture is extremely worn and the cushions, throw pillows and bedding are very stained. This makes it very hard to feel comfortable and want to even sit down on the couches. The bathrooms have mold in the grout and the tile floors are stained and the walls could you use fresh paint. I felt like I had to clean the house before we even could get situated. The outdoor screened porch needs fresh paint and new furniture. There were ashes and burn marks on the table. It was like no one even cleaned the place to get it ready for new renters. Once again, the furniture is in very poor condition. The backyard with a very small pool needs TLC too. It looks like no one is trying to even keep up with the landscape and clean the pool. There were leaves every where on the pool deck and in the pool and everything just looked dirty. We didn't even want to use the area because it was so uninviting and dirty. The pictures they have on their website must have been from day one after their renovation. It is very staged. Makes me sad! I would like to be able to recommend this house to friends and I would like to be able to stay again someday because of the location but the house really needs some work. If the rental company and owners could see to cleaning the place up then it would be perfect and it would be a fantastic place to stay.
Thank you for your review on The White House. We are sorry that you stay was not up to your expectations. We are glad that we were able to assist you by cleaning the pool, but we wish you would have called and given us the opportunity to send the cleaners back to re-clean the house to your satisfaction. This house has provided many guests over the years with memories that will last a life time. This home has an average of 4.7/5 stars and is a unique Sea Grove beach home that provides a very sought after 30-A experience. The White House holds on to many characteristics of it's original foundation, but was recently remodeled with the intention of providing a comfortable and romantic getaway while still preserving the experience of beach vacation. The White House sits within seconds away from the nearest beach access and the home provides multiple picturesque views of the emerald waters of the Gulf of Mexico. During this off season we will be taking the time to address some of your concerns, such as steam cleaning the furniture and replacing some of the furnishings throughout the house. We are sorry that the condition of the property was not up to your standards, but we hope to have you back again next year after we've taken the time to address some of your concerns.
Overall we had a great experience in The White House. The common areas were spacious and the kitchen was well stocked. The porches and outside seating areas were wonderful. The upstairs master suite was also fabulous. We traveled with my retired parents and my brother and his wife. We didn't have kids with us. I would say that this is better configured for families traveling with children. The bedroom setup was great for the couple staying the master but not as comfortable for the other couples. I would still stay there again, especially if kids joined. One other comment is that the beach access is right across the street which was fabulous. The rental came with beach service for two chairs and an umbrella. One word of caution that the beach service vendors are restricted to a very small area of the public beach access and the beach chairs were six or seven rows deep from the beach. We ended up switching beach service companies to get closer to the beach. One last challenge is that in the age of automated lock access for most rental units, it actually was kind of painful to pick up and drop off keys at the rental office. Given the price, I think it would be awesome if Royal Destinations put a lock box onsite so it's easier to get in and out, especially since driving on 30A is super stressful after an 8 hour drive. Not a dealbreaker, but there's definitely room to add value there.
Thank you for your honest feedback. The White House is a one of a kind Sea Grove Beach home that is located directly on 30A. This is one of the few homes along 30A that has a fenced in front and back yard, which makes it the perfect home for a family vacation. Guests enjoy this homes open floor plan and light and airy feel. The private pool is a great way to cool off after soaking up the sun at the beach. The closest beach access is directly across 30A and this home is only a short walk to Seaside. We will definitely take into consideration making this property a remote check-in home in the future. Thanks again for the feedback and we hope to see you again next year at The White House by Royal Destinations!
The White House was a delight, it was perfect for our family. Roomy throughout. The kitchen was small but, the island was big and the laundry room which was beside it had a long counter that definitely came in handy as our pantry. Loved the long soft couches but, they are in need of a cleaning. I was pleased that the house has three air conditioning units. One for the upstairs master bedroom, one for the main floor and another for the HUGE bedroom with the queen and twin bunks that lead to the pool area. The 7x11 ft, pool was perfect for the children as well as a place adults could relax in. It was in need of a good cleaning though. Lots of leaves fall from the trees and there was sand ...a lot of sand. We took care to fully use the outdoor showers before dipping in from the beach. Others should do the same! One in front and one in the back. No excuse for that much sand in the pool. The screened in front porch was great. Comfy furniture and a picnic table. But, my favorite was the sitting area in front of the house. Lots of relaxing there to watch people walking, running, and bicycles (lots of bicycles). We’d wave and lots would say hello to us....loved this!! Since we were there during the Fourth of July....their annual parade went right by the house.The beach access was right across from the house and the beach and ocean was wonderful during our stay. The fenced in yard was a big plus because we were able to bring our two little dogs with us..LOVED this house. Many precious memories were made here.
