Reviewed 20 October 2009

We stayed in unit 404 in September and it was the cleanest roo/condo I have ever stayed in. The owner was very accomodating. All we had to do was show up. There was very fast and FREE wi-fi and there were beach chairs, umbrella, cooler, beach towels and floats in the closet for us to use. The view from the balcony was to die for and the beach is always wonderful. The bathrooms were very clean and the whole condo was very well maintained. We will always come back to this unit.

We have stayed at Vistas on the Gulf a number of times but this stay was disappointing. We stayed in Room 204 and never will again. The decor was not the traditional Vistas resort look. The condo was decorated as though someone had cleaned out their old rec room--old black leather sofa and loveseat, the dining table old beat up wood, the bedroom furniture removed and replaced. It was depressing to say the least. The condo was not well cared for--vertical blinds missing slates and holes in one, the closet door was leaning against the wall, old black area carpets! The list goes on but I'm sure you get the idea! Just awful!

we will see if they keep ALL comments........................reality is that you will get the bad with the good..................Traveling with a family of 6 staying in unit 407. We never had hot water in 5 out of 7 days. When management was called it took 3 days to get a REPAIR MAN AND 5 DAYS TO GET THE HOT WATER PROBLEM FIXED! I thought about coming back but not with an administration that refuses we had a problem and offered us nothing. The repair man apoligized and fixed the problem on day 5, I was just looking for some help or repair to the problem sooner. There are many other compatable places near by. We'll visit next year BUT NOT HERE! It's too bad the problem could have easily been fixed by Professional Managers. If William worked for me he'd be fired! This is not a fake review.

TRStom, Rental Management of this unit at Vistas on the Gulf, responded to this reviewResponded 21 October 2009

This unit is a 1 bedroom with a den. It was explained to the guest that if everyone takes a shower one right after the other there would not be enough hot water for all due to only having a 30 gallon hot water heater. Maintenance did respond and found nothing wrong with the hot water heater. We are sorry for the inconvenience to this guest.

We stayed in unit 301 (May 18-23 2009)
It was very clean. We loved the view from the balcony we saw the dolphins play in the gulf several times. The pool was cleaned every morning. You can walk up the beach to the Bon Aire and have a Burger or Drink. The only negetive I have is, I didnt get a number to call if there was a problem. On friday night someone got in the pool at 2:30am and was making alot of noise. They didnt stay long, someone may have asked them to leave, I dont know. But, I didnt have a number to call and ask someone to tell them to stop. But, this only happened the one time and probably wouldnt happen again. I just think it would be helpful to have a number handy in case of an emergency. But I would stay there again. It is really nice. The view is wonderful, it is great to get up in the morning and have your coffee on the balcony and see the gulf of Mexico at your door.

We stayed at Vistas On The Gulf from Nov 1 - Dec 1, 2008. Our condo was Unit 401. 4 Adults, 1 toddler, 1 infant... The master bedroom was quite big which had a tv wardrobe, ensuite bathroom. The "den" bedroom #2 has a trundle bed and enough room for a playpen - we rearranged some furniture. Condo was decorated nicely and kept very clean. Beach sand toys for little ones in the hall closet with beach chairs and water toys...

The pool was very nice the 1st week and then heater broke and the water was not so hot anymore but bearable... Hot tub very nice, especially on cold nights. Unit 401 we think, is one of the best units to rent from - we always had sun from morning to sunset. It's located on the south/west corner of the building. We saw sunsets every night, dolphins swam out front our condo twice and we also saw them out in the Gulf a few times as well...

Our stay at Vistas on The Gulf was absolutely amazing! I would highly recommend this condo to anyone...
