Great for multi-generation families looking for a quiet retreat

by Williamsburg VA

5 of 5

The property description was very accurate. We loved the house and the pool! Everything was clean and worked. We agree with previous reviewers that some of the mattresses need to be replaced now(both upstairs beds)! And definitely pack beach towels! The starter kits provided were perfect until we could shop for what we needed the day after arrival. There were some pool and beach toys, games and a pack&play that were unexpected and great to have for 2 toddlers and 6 adults. The location was perfect for us! The neighborhood was quiet and the beach access was very close by. Benchmark was responsive whenever we contacted them. They had the pool heated (extra fee) in advance of our arrival and replaced a faulty smoke alarm that went off during our stay. The included golf cart was great. Only thing missing was bikes, which we rented at The Big Chill.

Bi-annual Family Vacation

by Louisville KY

5 of 5

House was clean and spacious. Checking in and out was easy. Location to the beach was an easy walk but getting up the steps from the beach can be difficult for those with health conditions or elderly. If we had known there were so many steps we would have stayed elsewhere due to a family member having trouble climbing them. The queen mattresses in 2 of the bedrooms need to be replaced. Main bedroom’s mattress was perfect. Pool turned green on Wednesday and was not cleaned until Friday. Pool guy said it always does when it rains. He probably needs to come twice a week when rainy. Patio and grill area was great. Did not see any beach services so had to bring chairs/umbrella to beach. Rental credit for those items was appreciated. Definitely spacious enough for everyone to spread out.

Response from Benchmark Management

Kenneth, We thank you for staying with us at The Palms this July! We are sorry to know that we let you down in areas of property condition. If you can provide us with details next time, we would be happy to listen and help where we are able and could pass along those comments to the owners so we can work towards getting updates. We truly appreciate you taking the time to leave a review and hope that you will give us another chance to provide you with a great beach vacation. Sincerely, Benchmark Management

Great House

by Norman OK

5 of 5

This house was really great! It accommodated our two families wonderfully (4 adults, 7 kids). It was such a great location with an easy bike ride into The Hub or to Alys/Rosemary. The beach access was extremely convenient as well. The access was directly across the street from the entrance to the neighborhood on 30A, and once you got there the walkway had a boardwalk and a shower at the top of the stairs to rinse sandy feet after a day at the beach. Some things that would improve the stay at the house would be more linens, towels, washcloths, blankets. Several of the beds only had a thin quilt, and we only found one extra blanket in entire five-bedroom house. The house was clean, and Benchmark was great to work with! Overall, we would definitely stay here again!

Response from Benchmark Management

Thank you for taking the time to leave us a review. We appreciate your feedback. We are happy to hear that the size and location of this unit worked well for your family. The Hub is a favorite here in 30A, which makes this unit location even better. We appreciate your suggestions and will move them along to the Property Managers to resolve these issues. We enjoyed hosting you and we look forward to having you back in the future. Benchmark Management

Great location and privacy

by Westerville Oh

5 of 5

Management company was great, very helpful. The location here was very convenient to beach access and central location between Destin and PCB. The pool area is very private and offers shade. Just be prepared as there are no beach towels and no basics (salt, pepper, cooking spray, coffee filters, etc) offered to start with

Great Home to Rent

by Louisville KY

Benchmark was quick to respond and the home was how the pictures portrayed it. I would rent from them again and would choose this house again! The only issue we had was some confusion about the pool being heated, but Benchmark worked with me on this prior to our arrival.

9 Palms

The home was lovely and spacious, accommodating our large group comfortably. The short walk to the beach was great (unfortunately the red tide was not so great). We enjoyed lounging by the pool though.

Great house and location

5 of 5

We recently stayed at 9 Palms for a family vacation with our kids and grandkids. The house was a great size for the 8 adults and the grandkids. The walk to the beach was very easy. Everyone loved the pool. It was nice having the alarm on the door with the young kids so we knew whenever someone went out to the pool. The rooms were a great size and the master bedroom and bathroom were awesome. The only issue we had was with the plumbing in the bathroom on the main floor. Benchmark Management was very quick to respond and everyone was very nice. There are a few restaurants close by but most are in Panama City Beach which was about a 20 minute drive. I would definitely recommend this house and hope to stay there again sometime.

Great house, close to the beach

by West Manchester OH

5 of 5

We recently stayed at the 9 Palms location. The house was great. We had plenty of room for our large family. The kitchen was well stocked. I would recommend adding some more silverware. We seemed to run out all the time. The main bedrooms were very nice size and the master suite was gorgeous. All the beds were very comfortable. Benchmark Management was excellent to work with. We had an issue with a shower and they were there within 30 minutes to fix. The only issue that I feel needs to be addressed is the main bathroom plumbing. Maintenance came out and a plumber but the issue was not totally fixed. All in all is was a wonderful time with our family. I would definitely stay here again.

Response from Benchmark Management

Carol, We thank you for taking the time to review your stay with us. It is great to hear that your family was able to enjoy the wonderful and spacious accommodations that 9 Palms has to offer! We appreciate you communicating issues with us so we could promptly resolve them for you. We are thrilled to report we have since been able to fully attend to the plumbing issues that have been reported by a few guests. We can't wait to have you all back for yet another 5-star beach vacation! Sincerely, Benchmark Management

9 Palms Review

by Frankfort ky

5 of 5

The property from a cosmetic perspective was great. However, as it was documented from my calls/texts to benchmark we did have some issues: First, water pressure was bad for the first three days, plumber came out and found out main was not fully engaged. Multiple toilets had plumbing issues, however the 1st floor bath next to the living room never would flush correctly and even after multiple plumber visits couldn't be resolved. The master toilet had a cracked seat (you can imagine what that can do) and never was fixed duirng my stay. The pool was dirty upon arrival, BM did get it cleaned ahead of the normal schedule (thank you). We had to take out ALL (and I mean all) garbage from the back left by either previous tenant or someone...was gross (magits, ripped bags, needed gloves to pick up, bad odors), one of my sons was nausious from it...Again very nice place that could have been better prepared for us, and definitely has some plumbing issues that need to be addressed. We love BM and will continue to use them for future vacations. Also would stay here again if all items were resolved.

Response from Benchmark Management

Michelle, We thank you for taking the time to review your stay with us. We appreciate you keeping in contact throughout your stay to discuss issues and give us the opportunity to mend them. We are glad we were able to resolve some of them quickly, but have since got the plumbing issues fully resolved. We do apologize about the trash outdoors and definitely could have had someone come back out to assist with that, but you very kindly handled that and just reported it to us. We understand the frustration regarding these issues, but know we are always here to help in any way we are able to. We hope we can welcome you back in the future for a chance to offer a 5-star stay to your family. Sincerely, Benchmark Management

Awesome rent

by Chattanooga TN

5 of 5

Very nice and clean. The only thing I would change would be the description in the details of bathrooms. They were not clear. 6 adults on the main floor had to use one bathroom that was located in the master bedroom. It is 3 bedrooms on the floor and again only 1 full bathroom located in the master bedroom. Not good but we managed.

Response from Benchmark Management

Hi Cheri, Thank you for the review of 9 Palms. We were honored to have you and are so humbled by your response. Our apologies that we let you down in the description of the property. We work hard each and every day to bring ours guests the best vacation experience. With that being said, we are happy to report that the construction is completed and there is a 2nd full bath, plus an extra half on the main floor. We can’t wait to see you again and make it a complete 5-star experience for you. Sincerely, Benchmark Management

This house was complete and utter perfection. My friends and I were in awe of it's beauty and amenities. The pool is completely private and the kitchen and living space are open so everyone can come together and socialize. The house was sparkling clean with all kitchen appliances, towels, and washing machine supplies provided. We were over the top satisfied. The house is a dream home with a magical botanical garden in the back yard and surrounding the property. With astonishingly high ceilings, the rooms are cozy and designed beautifully. Minutes from the beach, this home suited 6 people with plenty of space to spare.

We really enjoyed our stay at your beautiful home. It is located perfectly…off the main drag but with great beach access and close (but not too close) to the Hub, Rosemary Beach and Seaside. Your home is very private, well maintained and very clean. My wife and children commented that they felt very comfortable and at home. It was a great place to come home to after a day of biking or swimming to fix a meal (in a well appointed kitchen) and relax with an evening swim. We rent a lot of homes and deal with many management companies and Benchmark is among the most professional we have dealt with. We will recommend your homes to our friends and will return for our Fall dive trip. Thank you for a great experience Tray, Michelle, Aubrey & Abigail P.S. The Welcome Basket was a great touch!
