Beach stay We love staying here. This is our second time and we already have it reserved again for the summer. It’s the best location to be by Rosemary and have a private beach. Would highly recommend. Response from 30A Luxury Vacations; Saturday, February 25, 2023 Thank you, Kristy! We loved hosting you and are so excited that you will return, which is the greatest compliment. See you in the summer! :-)

mediocre the location of the house is great! The pool was nice. the stay was mediocre. The house was not clean enough. There must have been a group of women in the house. There signs left in the house and teh overall cleaning was mediocre. it looked clean until you really started to look at it. We had a baby the floors were filthy. With a baby, things are accidentally thrown under the couch. There wa so much dust and trash under the couches. It was gross. There was something on the master bedroom sheets. The outside of the house when compared to house next door definitely needs a face lift! the kitchen main outdoor floor dining area. The couches were filthy and the grill over the fireplace is disgusting. the beach chairs are suppose to be ours everyday. We would go down there and someone was in them or they would take a name off another set of chairs and give those to us. One of the reasons we picked this property was because of the beach access with designated chairs. Also they power washed the house next door and played loud music every single day! we also disliked not being able to speak to someone in person---text only!

Review of Villa Sandy Shores. Hi. On a whole it was lovely but I do want the owners to know that for this pricepoint they need to take some time to fix some things up.<br/>The hot tub needs repair as does the flooring around the pool. <br/>You can&#x2019;t close the window treatments in the master bedroom. They stick and half of them are off the pins so they can&#x2019;t close. Very difficult to maneuver. Response from 30A Luxury Vacations; Friday, November 26, 2021 Hi Tim. We thank you so much for your thoughtful review and we truly value your feedback, as we are always looking for ways to improve. We're happy to hear that you had a lovely time, and we hope you will return and stay with us again soon!

Very Nice Our beautiful rental property, Villa Sandy Shores, was ready upon arrival! We were grateful to find it clean and cool. The layout was perfect for our family. The AC did require adjusting for our needs but that was taken care of in good timing which we really appreciated. Because of all that, we will return.

Words can not describe how amazing this home is!!! Our family had been looking forward to this trip and the property and management company exceeded our expectations and then some. The property was immaculate and gorgeous! The pool and gulf front location were just the start and taken to the next level by the service of the management company! They set up everything we thought of and several experiences we didn't... from the private chef that cooked us dinner, to the bonfire on the beach with s'mores!! If you're thinking of booking this home, do it!! I assure you, your expectations will be exceeded! Thank you 30A Luxury Vacations for making this our dream vacation!!

Most amazing, luxurious, beach-front experience on 30a! Beautiful house- cannot beat the views and convenience to the beach. Very private- beautifully decorated home. We had 4 families on our trip and the house was so spacious and well designed it felt like we all had a private experience. We loved the pool- and the kitchen opens up to a deck with million dollar views and sounds of the gulf. This has been our favorite house to rent on 30A by far!

Luxury at its best!!! If you want a property that is right on the sand this is your house! It was so beautiful. Sandy Shores has a dedicated area on the beach and they are great kicking people out that try to put their chairs there. The first floor has a ping pong table and easy access to the pool and boardwalk to the beach. It was so nice to be able to run back up to the house if we needed anything. We didn't have to pack a huge bag and carry it up and down the beach. The furnishings are so pretty. The views are absolutely amazing. You can see the beach and ocean for miles and miles. The master bedroom did get a little warm at night but that it is probably our error. Kitchen is stocked with everything you would need. 30A Luxury were so wonderful to work with. They were so kind. In fact, we had a small issue with our beach chairs the first day and the owner of 30A called me personally on the weekend and fixed our issue. He even offered to go buy chairs and bring them if we needed them. That is incredible customer service. We plan on coming back in August and will rent this beautiful home again if it is available. Location is also perfect. This home is located in a small gated community. 2 minute bike ride to the left takes you to Alys Beach. 2 minutes to the right takes you to Rosemary Beach. This home is spectacular and 30 A is an amazing company to work with. Response from 30A Luxury Vacations; Saturday, June 15, 2019 We are excited to read your excellent review of the brand new Villa Sandy Shores! This gorgeous appointment home is the true essence of luxury beachfront relaxation and comfort. Our team members are very dedicated to making sure our guests are comfortable, and all of their needs are taken care of during their stay. We would love the opportunity to welcome you back in August!
