We rented this condo thru Wyndham Vacation Rentals. First the positives: great location and awesome view of the beach. The condo was perfect for my wife and I in regards to the size and amenities. There are only 4 floors so we liked that this was not a large high rise complex. We had beach chairs and umbrella included with the unit which was great (except for one negative below). The negatives: we had people above us that walked very heavily and we could hear every step they made! We could even hear their toilet flush and when they opened and closed the door to their balcony! If you stay in these condominiums I recommend staying on the top floor (4th floor). We could never get the internet to work even after calling the Wyndham office. In regards to the beach chairs and umbrella, they are put practically touching each other so if you are looking for a little privacy without hearing every word your beach chair neighbors are saying you will have to ask the beach attendant to move the chairs and umbrella back behind the others. It seems like they could stagger the chairs and umbrellas instead of putting them in a straight line. I will say that the beach attendant on duty was very helpful and did what he could to make us feel comfortable.

Room Tip: Choose the top floor so that it will be quiet; also if you don't want to be located over the poo...

Windancer is situated right on the beach, which is great, but unfortunately it's difficult to enjoy the spectacular views when you are staying in a filthy unit. Upon arrival, we were greeted with a host of problems. The unit was nothing like the pictures. The "pottery barn style" couch was disgusting. It was covered in food stains, long black hairs, and dirt. We had to cover it with a sheet just to feel comfortable sitting on it. The rug was absolutely filthy - more food stains, dirt, and grime. We rolled it up and stuck it behind the couch. The a/c vents were covered in mold. We found mouse excrement on the mattress pad in the bed, and the bathrooms were dirty and grimy as well. There was hair and mold all in the shower. There was hair all over the bathroom floor. The baseboards were coated in accumulated gunk. The drapes were stained and dirty. In short, it was just gross, and the first few hours of our stay were spent cleaning so we could make ourselves at least somewhat comfortable. Ocean Reef sent out crews the next day to address the issues, which we appreciated, but all of this should have been taken care of prior to our arrival.

There were some good things about this property. The condo building is small, so the beach isn't crowded. Each unit gets complimentary beach chairs and an umbrella, which is great! Ocean Reef did address the issues we had in a timely manner and they gave us some compensation, which we appreciated.

Overall, however, we recommend looking for a different property in Miramar Beach! This unit is not properly maintained by the owner, and it is not properly managed.

Thank you for your feedback. We again apologize for the lack of cleanliness upon arrival, the items noted should have been addressed by housekeeping. The Housekeepers in question will be re-trained and placed on probation. Regarding the vents, this property has tested negative for mold, what the housekeeper cleaned during the re-clean was a combination of dust and mildew. This is of course something that should have been addressed prior to your arrival and is often easily confused. This property does not have mold nor does it have mice. This unit in question is scheduled for a deep clean to further address the items mentioned. We are glad you enjoyed your stay and were pleased with the compensation package we gave in light of your issues, thank you again for your patience and understanding on this matter.

People that stay at Windancer normally love it. The housekeepers did a sub-par job this go around but please do not let this experience deter you from staying at Windancer again. Should you choose to rent here again please reach out to us directly so we can ensure the unit you rent is properly inspected prior to your arrival.

We stayed here in May. The location was great. Right on the beach with a great view. The condo was nice, well furnished and very clean. There was good access close by to restaurants and shopping. It is a small complex with 4 stories and 12 units in each floor which is what we preferred. Our unit was 1 bedroom with 2 bunk beds in the hall. There was also a well maintained pool. We loved it here and will be back in October.

Excellent
Clean and decorated very nicely. Stand on your balcony and the Gulf of Mexico is right there. Very quiet and great location. Lots of restaurants and the outlets is on the other side of main highway.
Wanted to take one star away as the wifi is terrible. Every evening the wifi would go down and then return in the am. Still this condo deserves and excellent rating.
