“Condo is nice”
Condo was nice and comfortable. Really appreciated the 3 baths. View is very nice and never heard any noise from our neighbors. The pool is small but we were more interested in the beach anyway. We did not cook much so cannot comment on the kitchenware. The vacuum cleaner does not work. Beds are firm. Certainly not the condo's fault but the June grass was bad during our stay.
“Beautiful views, from sunrise to sunset!”
The service was great, Dave and staff were very fast to solve any of our problems! I.P. 701 is a great place to stay! But could use a little T.L.C. such as paint new mattresses especially in 2nd bedroom and maybe replace or paint refrigerator handles. When were the bedspreads last changed?? We were pleased with the appliances on the whole! And thought the cookware good. We loved the location of our unit because of the great views! Being able to see both sunrise and sunset was awesome! And it was far away enough from the pool so the pool noises were never a problem. The pools were usually warm and I enjoyed the water aerobics. We best liked our location and least liked our inability to offer our guests the use of the second bedroom because of the bad mattress. We look forward to our return Dec.28th!
Response from the manager Hi Mr. and Mrs. Weihn! I hope this finds you doing well! Thank you for your feedback and kind comments regarding your stay with us! David and I are looking forward to seeing you when you return. I have good news and bad news. First.... the bad news. Unit 701 had a washing machine mishap and experienced a minor flood a couple of weeks ago. And now, the good news... because of the flood the unit is getting a few areas renovated. I have contacted the owner regarding the bed as well. I believe you will be pleased when you return in December! Thank you so much and have a wonderful day! Andie Hamilton Rental Manager
“an enjoyable get-a-way”
This was not the original unit we reserved. We arrived early and happened to be in the elevator with a Peterson representative who volunteered to see if our unit was ready. As we walked into the kitchen I involuntarily said, "That's gross!" The sink was greatly rusted out and looked full of germs. The agent must have agreed with me and offered to see if another unit was available. Within a few minutes he has us in this larger unit for the same price. Everything was in good repair here. The bathrooms and kitchen were nicely clean and in good repair. The furniture and beds were in good repair. Since we were not anticipated, the unit had not been vacuumed or dusted. I tried to vacuum with the unit's vacuum and it wouldn't pick up anything. The washer and dryer worked well. All the bedroom ceiling fans wobble and the bed headboards wobble against the wall of the next unit. Nice dishes and pots and pans. We enjoyed cooking bacon, eggs, biscuits then sitting on the balcony. Spent a lot of time on the balcony watching the beautiful gulf and reading. i would rent this unit again but I wish they would get a new vacuum, fix the headboards and stabilize the fans. The sliding door from the master bedroom to the balcony if frozen so you can't open it to hear the ocean at night. It would be nice if a new lock were installed there.
Response from the manager Hi Mrs. Hopkins! Thank you so much for letting us know about your stay with us at Island Princess. Your feedback is more valuable to us than you know so that we can be sure that our service is the best in the industry. Thank you for your kind comments and be assured that we have addressed the issues you mentioned (vacuum, fans, headboards). We look forward to having you stay with us again and thank you for choosing Dale E. Peterson Vacations. Andie Hamilton
“I have stayed at this factility many times and feel that I would”
Some of the furniture in the bedrooms need to be updated. The beds in the master bedroom and the queen sized bed in bedroom #2 are old and very hard. The bed in room #2 fell apart on the second night there. All the bathrooms were great. The living room and furniture were good. The kitchen was good as well.
“Lots of small repairs needed”
The location is great and the beach beautiful. The condo was very clean when we arrived, but it is definitely in need of some TLC. There was a broken handle on the sliding glass door. The sliding door off the master bedroom would not stay closed or lock. There was rust in the dishwasher, the sink drain stopper would not open in one of the bathrooms, smoke detectors would go off when you showered, etc. The queen bed was propped up on a cinder block and falling apart. Island Princess #701 definitely needs some repairs.
Response from the manager Hi Ms. Tapp! Thank you so much for your kind comments and feedback regarding 701 at Island Princess! Your comments are invaluable to us as they help us to know about areas that need improvement from the people who utilize them. I also thank you because this information helped us to be able to have the bed frame for the queen bed fixed and we are working closely with the owner to achieve other needed updates once the summer season is over. We thank you for choosing Dale E. Peterson Vacations and truly look forward to serving you for your family's vacation destination needs when you come back to the area. Have a great weekend and if I can be of any help please do not hesitate to contact me. Sincerely, Andie Hamilton
“not a great value for the $”
I've stayed in many condo's in the Fort Walton area for the past 20 years. I have to say, this was the worst equipped kitchen I've ever had. Glasses were broken, no pot holders, no bowls with tops and just not impressed with the place at all for the money we paid. Master bathroom counter was extremely small w/ no drawers or enough room for all of my toiletries. Unfortunately, we take this long weekend with friends, so I will probably have to stay here again!!! As far as going with just my family, I would not return.
Response from the manager Hi Ms. Lee! Thank you so much for your kind comments! If I can do anything at all for you, again, please do not hesitate to contact me. I look forward to helping with future reservations in any way that I can. Andie Hamilton ---------------------- I'm assuming I spoke with someone at Dale Peterson. They did offer to bring up pot holders and were apologetic for having a broken glass, and were very concerned. I told them I could do without the pot holders for the rest of our stay, but really just called them to make them aware of the lack of kitchen supplies. Be assured, they were very concerned and did offer there assistance. Thank you for responding to my feedback....I appreciate it. W.Lee ------------------------ Hi Ms. Lee! Thank you for taking the time to provide feedback regarding your stay with us in unit 701 at Island Princess! Your comments are invaluable to us in order to make needed improvements as they arise in areas that we would not otherwise be aware of any issues. I'm wondering if you can tell me who you spoke with regarding the issues in the kitchen. It is disappointing to think that we were made aware that you needed glasses, pot holders, etc and we were not able to provide them for you. Since we are unable to stay in the units, we do no know that these items are missing or needed unless a guest lets us know so, I truly appreciate you doing so. While, I cannot do anything about the size of the unit's counters, I can assure you that the next time you and your family stay, your comments will have helped to make sure that our units are properly stocked and have the needed items that we require. Please do not hesitate to contact me personally if I can help in anyway. Thank you for choosing Dale E. Peterson Vacations and we hope you are having a wonderful weekend! Andie Hamilton
“Our Family Vacation”
We have stayed at Dale E. Peterson resorts in the past and have always had very good service. This particular condo was less than appropriate for our needs. The one thing that I requested upon booking was to have Wifi internet service so that we could conduct our business while there. There was no Wifi for this condo and we were told that we could "ping" off someone else. This only worked if we were in 1 particular area of the room. Also, the handle on the glass door was broken and the screen door kept coming out of the track. The doors were very hard to open. The bed in the middle room broke the 3rd night we were there. The maint. man came and replaced the handle and stated that it was cheap. He also temporarily fixed the bed and said that it had happened before and he had told the owner to fix it. There was new balcony furniture delivered 2 days prior to our leaving, but they did not pick up the old furniture so there was so much on the patio that you couldn't even move when you were out there. All in all, everything else was acceptable, but I will not request this particular condo again.
“a haven in a hurricaine”
We were staying at Navarre Towers, until the "Issac" mandatory evacuation on Monday 8/27/12. Heather at your office was so kind and offered us a condo at Island Princess. We prefer Navarre Beach to the business of Fort Walton. Our condo at Navarre Towers 201 was bigger and much more comfortable; especially the beds, than 701 at Island Princess. We apreciated the immediate help your office offered.
“We had a wonderful time !”
Easy check in. Wonderful place to stay and relax and enjoy the beach.
Wishing I could wake up to that view every morning! The condo was beautiful, very clean. On the end with privacy. The only negative thing was the tv in twin bedroom didn't get a picture. That one thing was very easy to overlook. We had perfect wheather at the perfect place! I would come back for sure!!!
