Comfortable and Relaxing

by Louisville KY

5 of 5

We stayed at By The Wave in the Magnolia neighborhood in the Seacrest area. The home is decorated in contemporary beach decor. The master bedroom bed was very comfortable. It was just my wife and myself so the 3 bedrooms 3 full baths was more than enough for us. We enjoyed the screened in front porch and ate most of our meals out there. The community pool was generally quiet but the water was comfortable. Beach access is not the most accessible which was the one downside. We drove to Seaside public beach a few days where there is parking and restrooms. Benchmark Management was great to work with. We had a little issue with a small appliance and they replaced it the same day. You can’t ask for more than that. Many restaurants along 30A are easily accessible in either direction from the house.

Wonderfully designed home which was clean. Yes, I said CLEAN!! Everything was in working order and when it was not, the repair person came first thing on Sunday morning. He was in/out in 15 minutes. Convenient to the beach.
