Summer spell 206 stay.

  4 of 5 stars

We had a wonderful time. There are a couple of things however that I wamted to bring to your attention regarding the unit we stayed in. The toilet ran almost constantly. We had to take the lid off the back to make the flange go down so the water would fill up. Also there is a. Note from the housekeeper on the refrigerator to wash all dishes, etc. things that I feel 110.00 should have covered. I don't know how often you walk these units but you may want to because I feel that they may be cutting corners.

Well-Maintained One Bedroom Unit

  4 of 5 stars

Our first stay at this particular property, very pleased with general appearance & maintenance of this unit. Kitchen appliances, cookware, etc. were actually better than most condos we have rented in Destin over the years. The single bedroom with king bed is fairly tight but liveable, rest of the condo fairly spacious and has good storage, especially with extra shelves & cabinets in the bathroom. Tile floors throughout made it no issue when we entered with wet feet, and balcony offers a very picturesque view of the ocean, as we ate 2-3 meals out there to enjoy the breeze. Pool not overly large but OK, only maintenance issues were that water jets in jacuzzi/hot tub by the pool did not work much and had issues with the DVD player in the unit itself, but did not take time to report issues and worked around them. Overall was a very pleasant stay, peaceful & quiet due to complex being less than half full. Would definitely stay in this unit again if needing only one bedroom, in good condition and excellent location across the street from the beach.

Summerspell was a great place. This was our first visit to Destin and a last minute trip. The condo was a very clean pet friendly unit. The views from the balcony were awesome. We highly recommend Summerspell and look forward to visit again.

Wonderful Family Vacation at Summerspell 206

  5 of 5 stars

We couldn't have been more pleased with our stay at Summerspell 206. This condo was everything we expected in the perfect location, close to the beach, restaurants and shopping. The beautiful beach is steps away and we appreciated the complimentary beach service which comes with the unit, no hassle, the chairs/umbrella are there waiting for you. Community grills and picnic tables are available as well. The interior was very clean upon arrival. The kitchen is fully stocked and makes cooking and eating easy. Unit is comfortable. The view of the gulf is amazing from the balcony, that was one of my favorite places to sit and relax. Would stay there again in a heartbeat :) and would definitely recommend to friends and family.

we really enjoyed the property. The hot tub could be updated some but other than that everything was perfect.

Hello, I actually stayed in 206. 305 is my favorite but was booked. 206 is nice although not updated. I did find a broken lamp; a couple of broken dishes, and a long black hair on the countertop when I arrived. But other than that, things were great. If someone would trim the palm in front of the balcony on 206, the unit would have a great view. Overall I love the Summerspell and SummerBreeze units. I would rate this a 4. Thanks. We will stay again!!!!

We truly appreciated your condo. We adore the following... location, cleanness and beauty. Also, our socks stayed clean while we were inside. I know that might sound crazy but normally condos aren't maintained to such standard inside. Thank you, for sharing this beauty !!

My family has been going to Destin for 15 years and in about 25 visits, this is the very first time we have been disappointed. I opened the door to the smell of dirty grease and knew it was going to be bad. It smelled dirty and it was. The bedroom furniture and living room furniture were nice but that was all that was. The refrigerator is rusted, the other appliances except microwave are old, and there were bugs. It was disgusting. I called ND immediately and they sent a cleaning person over but she did nothing, said she couldn't help. I called again and was told an bug exterminator would be there ASAP. Two days later they came, but didn't help with bugs at all. Founds some dead ones, but still tons of live ones through remainder of the week. A young man came the second day and put plunkets down the garbage disposal, but that did nothing. My damage deposit was refunded, but it doesn't make up for that dump. ND did all they could and I am grateful for that, they are a good company. This owner needs to clean up this dump, or charge much less for it. It is NOT worth the price being charged. If ND set the pricing, you are way off, I feel like I got totally robbed. As I said, our first bad experience in Destin in 15 years, and it was really bad. This is the first time I have not used VRBO, and that won't happen again.

Thank you for taking time to let us know about your recent stay and we appreciate your constructive comments. We are so terribly sorry that you were disappointed with your accommodations. Our first and primary goal at Newman-Dailey is to provide our valued guests with a clean, safe and comfortable home away from home. Having said that, sometimes things do go wrong. When you entered your unit, you should have smelled nothing but clean sanitized air. A previous guest had spilled something on a burner and that’s what the smell was. We should have done a better job taking care of that. In regard to the bugs, we received your call on Sunday and called the Homeowners’ Association first thing Monday. While we insist on same day service from our vendors, we are sometimes at the mercy of their schedules. Again we apologize that it took two days for you to see an exterminator. We have shared your review with our housekeeping staff, the Homeowners Association and the owner. We are confident that these problems have been resolved for future guests. We hope you will allow us to host you again in the future, and show you how Newman-Dailey’s 30 years of experience has earned us the loyalty of countless repeat guests year after year.
