It is different with no front desk for check in or out. But the way it is handled and working with the handlers makes it real easy. Our next vaca will be through Vacasa again. Professional and easy. The Vacasa team is great.

We have a little problem with the check in, beside that every thing was fine. Loved our room very clean, big pool, quiet place, the view from the balcony was terrific.

Love it good view and people

The view was great

Change the lay out so the television can be seen from the bed. Need an exterminator to get rid of the knats. Nice place to stay and the boat slip made it well worth it.

Location was great, pool was nice and condo was very private. However, the condo was outdated....couch was worn, electrical outlets didn't all work, etc. Pillows were very very thin and the cooking area is actually in a closet and not easy to access or use at all.
We have inspected all the outlets to ensure they are functional, and we are working on replacing the couch. Thank you!

Price and boat slip. Small but really good

I loved the three circle pool and the view that overlooked the water. Additionally, I stayed for a good amount of time so having the mini-stove and full sized fridge allowed me the opportunity to cook. Great for long stays!
Rachel C.Aug 2016
I found the property great for what we paid. Everything is a little outdated. A few outlets didn't work & a couple of light bulbs out. It is very small but very comfortable. My husband & I enjoyed it.

This is a great location at an affordable price! It has a great view of the bay and the pool.

this was a great place to stay for a realizing vacation. its a little farther from all the action down in Destin or Okaloosa so there is a way to escape that which was nice. i seriously recommend renting a car if its in your budget. made the whole experience a lot more enjoyable. I would absolutely stay at pirates bay again. it was very cozy and there are great amenities.

This unit was very clean and accommodating, but only sleeps 2. It has a nice view of the bay, a lovely pool area, and is within 5 minutes driving distance to Okaloosa Island. Olive Garden is next door (walking distance). The kids love Adventures Family Fun Center (mini-golf, arcade, etc.) and their pizza is a bit costly but worth it! Destin is about a 15-20 minute drive. We rented pontoon boat from Adventures located at the foot of Brooks Bridge and went to Crab Island (so much fun). While at Crab Island we met a gentleman who charters pontoon cruises for just over the cost to rent a boat and captain it...he also provides dolphin viewing, paddle board, and other amenities-we will definitely go that route next time: crabislandcruises.com. We love FWB and for the value highly recommend this property.

Wish I could give this a bad review, I don't want anyone to rent this when we want to go. I will state that my wife and I ARE hotel snobs. We travel almost every weekend with our boat. We will be back, in fact, looking at buying a unit.

Naturally, when you say a room "sleeps 4" you'd assume that the sofa has a fold out bed, right? Well, that was the case for the other three units my friends booked in this building but not mine. My 6'5" friend ended up sleeping in the recliner as a Result.
We apologize that sleeping arrangements did not work out well for this group; the home is advertised as having a queen bed and a double bed, both of which can fit two people.

We enjoyed our stay overall. But here are some things to note. 1. Your lock box is located on the rail across from the door...not on the wall like we were told. 2. There is a separate key for the pool. If it is not there when you check in then call immediately to see if someone can get you one...otherwise you will not be able to use the pool til the next day. 3. It's a hide-a-bed. Comfy. But still. 4. No dishwasher.
The view is gorgeous and it's just right for people only using the room to chill in before they go out. :-)
Thank you for sharing that information! The only bed in this studio is a Murphy bed (pulls out of the wall) - it is queen sized and in good condition. We are glad to see that the unit worked out well for you overall. We hope you enjoyed being walking distance to the beautiful beach!

Our balcony overlooked the marina and pool. We loved the property! Very short drive to public beach access and the boats/sunrise/sunset were stunning! There is an awesome sushi restaurant about 1/2 mile from the property; I highly recommend it! Thanks for an awesome 4th of July holiday!

Great view of the pool. Nice little spot to spend a few days.

I enjoyed my first vacation with my boys in FWB and Destin. I will stay at Pirates Bay again.
