The service was ok, some things that we needed got fixed right away and some took a couple of days. The house is beautiful, but was not as clean as it should have been when we arrived. There was sand still on the floors and under the rugs. The window curtains where not hung properly and the furniture needed to be clean and dusted better. The location is wonderful right on the beach.

We loved walking out on the beach from Sol Mate but the air was inadequate and no TV or Internet access for most of our stay! We had young children with us and one that needed Internet access to work from Destin!
Thank you for taking the time to review SOL MATE with FIVE STAR BEACH PROPERTIES. When I spoke with Mr. Dinkins I unfortunately had to be the bearer of news about a lightning strike in the area that had affected all of COX Communications along that stretch of community. We were at the time schedule of their response team which could have been better. As I understand it the lightning strike did a number to the inner workings of COX cables infrastructure. We deeply apologize for the inconvenience this caused.

My husband and I invited our families to stay a week with us at the property sol mate for our wedding. The property itself was very beautiful an amazing. The property was right on the beach and we had our own private walkway to the beach. I can't say enough wonderful things about the property itself I would absolutely recommend this property to anyone of they were just looking for a beautiful place to stay. With that being said, the concierge service was rude and extremely unhelpful. We paid a lot of money for this property with the personal touch of a service which we did not receive. Every time we tried to call for something, they acted like we were bothering them. For example, my husband wanted to play golf with his father. The golf course in which you get a discount if you stay at a five star property would not give him the discount unless the concierge called. So my husband called and requested a tee time for the next day. The concierge told him to call back the next day to set up a time. So my husband called the morning of to set up the time, and the concierge rudely said "a little short notice don't you think?" This is just one of the many examples of their rudeness. We would call with simple questions, no one never had answers and they would always say "we'll get right back to you. " guess what, they never did. We also had to fight them to refund us our $1000 deposit required for guests with events. We called every day for 2 weeks and each time we spoke to someone different who acted like they had no idea we were supposed to get a refund. If you are looking for a beautiful place to stay, sol mate is absolutely right for you. If you are looking for the personal touch of a concierge service, I would recommend you find a different place, because you won't find that here.

The location is great and having basically your private part of the beach out the back door is why we chose a house on the beach versus condo. The unit is getting dated and was not as nice as the house we rented the previous year for the same money. 5 star was excellent at responding to our reqeust and I don't have a complaint with their service, but for the money this unit needs some freshen up.

Five Star Gulf Rentals was great as always. We have rented from them before, just a unit or 2 over, and they were very easy to deal with. I did find that this unit was not very clean when we arrived. Floors were sticky w/ a film over them and bathrooms had a lot of dust and upstairs tub needed cleaning. It had obviously been clean at some point before we arrived, but it may have been a little far in advance from our arrival. It also looked as though the unit could use a few touch ups w paint, light covers, etc. The location can't be beat, we absolutely love the beach and area. Looking forward to our next visit!
Thank you for taking the time to leave your comments. We always appreciate any feedback our guest share with us about their experience and will address the issues mentioned above. We are thrilled you enjoyed your beach vacation and hope to welcome you back very soon!
"Awesome stay on beatiful beach in great house"

The beach was wonderful. White sand. Great waves for body surfing. Beautiful view from master bedroom on third floor. We slept with patio doors open every night and listened to the waves. The house is very nice. A little smaller than what we like to rent with our 11 children, but it was right on the beach, so we traded in a little extra space for that major perk and we all agreed that it was worth it. The house was clean and well-maintained with lovely decorating. Also all the rental properties around ours were lovely and well-maintained on a busy (tourists, like us!) but lovely road. Planning on coming back next year--parents, teenagers, and littler kids all agreed!
Thank you for taking the time to leave your comments. We are thrilled you enjoyed your beach vacation at the beautiful property Sol Mate. We hope to welcome you back very soon!
