Beautiful house, great set up for two families! Waters Edge is the perfect location to both Rosemary and Seacrest!
Thank you for your review! Chardyonay is indeed a beautiful vacation home with the perfect setting and floor plan for two families. The blend of comfort and elegance is enhanced by the perfect location for convenient access to rosemary Beach as well as Seacrest Beach. And the proximity to everything you need can not be overstated. We hope to see you again soon at Royal Destinations!
Loved the house and the location. Gorgeous and great walking distance to Seacrest Beach amenities and Rosemary Beach amenities.
The house was gorgeous with great space, very comfortable, and the aveda amenities were great touch too. However, I don’t know that we will choose this property again until they add a 3rd air unit of some type for the 3rd floor. The 3rd floor was at least 10 degrees hotter during the day. The fans were okay but they didn’t cool the room down just blew air. Our kids slept in the bunk beds and were pretty uncomfortable sleeping up there at nap times and at night.
We appreciate that you thought the Chardonyay is gorgeous and enjoyed the short distance to Seacrest Beach amenities. Chardonyay certainly is in a great location. We understand the third floor can be a little less than comfortable and we are pursuing installing an air conditioning unit dedicated to that part of the home. We hope you at least touch base next season to see if this situation has been resolved. We agree the home has great space and is very comfortable. The aveda amenities are indeed a good touch. Thanks again for staying with Royal Destinations and contact us if there is anything we can do for you.
We had a fantastic stay at Chardonayay! We usually stay right on the beach, so we were a little apprehensive about the location of the home. We were pleasantly surprised at how close and convenient the beach access was. Simply walk out your back door, down a lovely short sidewalk and you are there. No shoes required! The home, located in the gated Waters Edge, is in a fantastic location. Walking/biking distance to all Rosemary has to offer, as well as Alys, Inlet, Seagrove, etc. The bikes were a wonderful benefit. Our whole family used them every single day to explore all the beautiful areas around us. Being spread out over 3 levels worked out great for our family of 6. Everyone had an area to retreat to without disturbing one another. The pool, although a bit smaller than we anticipated, was so nice to have when we were done with the beach, but not done being outside. The home was quite clean, decorated beautifully and had ample space. Royal Destinations was the best management company we've ever dealt with. Inevitably there were a few issues during our stay. They responded promptly and professionally and remedied the issues in a timely manner. We were impressed!
As there is always room for improvement--the third level of this home is quite warm. They have installed multiple fans and clearly are trying to address the issue, but it appears the A/C just isn't powerful enough to completely cool that level. The section of beach reserved for the Waters Edge is very nice and not too crowded. The chairs and umbrellas, however, are extremely close together. Too close. Some interior paint in the drop zone and on the stairs could use a touch up. The back door needs to be repainted. The tub in the guest room on 2nd floor and the bathroom on third floor could use updating. Remote check-in is a must. Driving to the office is quite inconvenient. Minor details. Overall, we had a fantastic trip and look forward to coming back in the future!
Hello and thank you so much for the nice review! We appreciate the feedback. Chardonyay is a great property that sleeps 14 comfortably. The back yard and pool deck is one of the larger ones in Water's Edge, making it great for families with children. We usually use the winter months to do our touch up painting, deep cleaning, and general off season projects to make sure the home is in top shape for the next year. We are happy to hear that you were able to take advantage of the complimentary beach chairs, private beach access, and complimentary bikes that come with the house. We hope you come and stay with us again soon!
