BEWARE: Online quotation meaningless to this wonderful property.
My wife and I were looking for a small unit in Seaside/Watercolor area that would be comfortable for us for the week. We located this property via VRBO, signed in online and after receiving the quote and printing out the confirmation for our stay, we booked the unit. When we arrived, everything represented on the web site was correct and our stay was great. We would totally recommend the property and it was a wonderful area.
Our problem stems from the fact that THE PRICE WE WERE QUOTED WAS NOT WHAT WAS CHARGED ON OUR CARD. On bringing this up to the MANAGER of Sandpiper Real Estate, we were told that is just the way that it is. (the quote was meaningless). I am not exaggerating in the least! Basically it came down to if we wanted to stay there, we would pay the higher rate. First we were charged additional by Sandpiper, then we were charged an additionally for using VRBO (a total of $10% higher than our original quote). The manager of Sandpiper would not even discuss this issue with me over the phone, though I requested this. Imagine picking up an item in a store only to be told when checking out at the register that the price marked on the item was actually 10% higher than what was marked on the shelf (and then being asked in an abrupt, curt, non caring manner if I wanted the item or not). That is exactly what happened to us. Renter beware, what you are actually charged may be nothing similar to what you are told you will pay.
To address you're “BEWARE: Online Quotation Meaningless” comments. Your original VRBO quote was for (2) adults to enjoy our “Wonderful” cottage. The online quote clearly included VRBO and Sandpiper fees before you confirmed your online purchase. What changed your online quote? Two adults, PLUS (2) dogs stayed in our cottage. This is fine, as we are pet friendly with pet fees. Our pet policy and pet fees are clearly written in our description. Sandpiper patiently explained fee policy on the phone. They even offered you a full refund to book elsewhere since you disagreed with paying fees. You chose to come and bring your dogs and you had a great time!
Would definitely recommend this pet friendly Seaside home. Amenities, location, comfort and friendly helpful property managers. Made for a perfect vacation to one of our favorite Florida community!
We were celebrating my husband’s 70th birthday and grandson’s 10th - just the three of us so two bedroom was perfect. Had some difficulty gaining access - the lock box was stuck - left several messages on Sat early evening and finally got someone to help. The toaster burns toast no matter what setting and the televisions were difficult to operate. Called maintenance on Monday someone promptly responded. We love Seaside - our fifth visit over the years at various houses - always have a great time!

What an amazing time we had!!! Location, Location, Location !!!!!! In less time that it would take you to load up your beach stuff and fight for an elevator down at the noisy cheesy beach themed high rise condos you have stepped off your quaint screened front porch (nothing more endearing to a true southern girl!) traversed a short distance and are sitting on one of the most beautiful white sand beaches in all of Florida! Snail's Pace is wonderfully appointed with EVERYTHING you could possibly need at the beach, no matter the age of your family or beach guests. From the moment you step onto the front porch and into the lovely cottage you know you are in for a real treat. It is tastefully decorated and appointed in a delightfully rustic beach style with state of the art appliances and plush linens. Too many thoughtful amenities to name them all but a few of my favorites were the wonderful radio in the kitchen (nothing like listening to some oldies on the radio after a day at the beach with a cool drink in hand as you cook!), soft quilts and lap blankets within reach of any place you lounge, delightful screened in porch with comfy furniture, a ceiling fan and a reading lamp for rainy day reading, great assorted reading selection in case you forgot your own, tastefully decorated, fresh, clean bathrooms with everything you could possibly need, and last but certainly not least, the "crows nest" at the very top. This quickly became my go to place to star gaze, watch the storms come in off the water, to just be quiet and relax (while my husband was downstairs watching SEC Baseball!!!!) At Snails Pace you only need to bring yourself and your clothing and get ready to enjoy the beach and Northern Florida the way it was meant to be enjoyed. The owners have done an amazing job of providing the amenities and ambiance anyone would need for an wonderful vacation and time away from the real world. Loved our time at Seaside and Snail's Pace. Highly recommend it!
