Quick January Get Away!

by Pensacola Beach FL

5 of 5

First of all, the weather was perfect, and January is a great time to stay. Less crowds and temp in the 60's and 70's in general. This condo is in a perfect location; literally steps away from the beach and only a little over a mile from Seaside's main square. Since it's a ground floor unit this allowed us to walk right out the back sliding glass doors to the beach. Because of its location, it's easy to leave the car parked and get around on bikes during the day. There are plenty of bike rental options within walking distance. The condo is nicely decorated, cute and beachy and has a well-stocked kitchen for staying in and cooking. Close to restaurants and shops. It's a treat to sit on the back patio with a glass of wine and watch the sunset over the water. Also, easy to get up last minute and make it out for sunrise too! Perfect for a couple or a family with kids. We've stayed here several times and have enjoyed it every time!

Beach retreat

by Pillsboro OH

5 of 5

Roger S from Hillsboro Ohio 11/5/22 . We have stayed at the Palms for several years. Rooms are well maintained and mgt. is promptly on site when needed. The beach is just steps away with a view of the ocean and the sound of the surf.
We liked C5 on the ground floor and no steps to climb with all our bags.
The 2 chairs and sofa in living room need to be updated. Bed was good. Extra toilet tissue would be good. Overall a quality experience. We will be booking this room again in 2023.

Response from Benchmark Management

Thank you for taking the time to leave us a review. We appreciate your feedback. We are so happy to hear that you enjoyed your stay, We enjoyed hosting you and we look forward to hosting you again in the future Benchmark Management **Edited to add that the owners listened to your feedback and have since added a slip cover to the couch after a thorough cleaning. Thank you again!**

Great Beachfront Condo

by South Charleston WV

5 of 5

First time staying at the Palms C5 condo but won’t be the last. Great first floor location with easy access to the beach. The condo was just like the photos online and beautifully decorated. Loved having two bathrooms. The kitchen had a Keurig coffee maker and was well stocked with everything you’d need to cook your meals if you didn’t want to eat at all the local awesome restaurants. Would recommend window treatments in the bedroom that blocks the outside building light and the sofa has seen better days. Overall great experience and would rent this unit again.

Response from Benchmark Management

Hi Nancy, Thank you for sharing your feedback. We were honored to have you and are so appreciative for your feedback. We work hard each and every day to bring ours guests the best vacation experience. We depend on information from our guest to continue making all rentals comfortable for our guests. We are sorry that the couch cover was not there during your stay, the owner was having one made. So that is taken care of now. As for the window treatments we will pass this on and hopefully have it covered for your next stay with us. We can’t wait to see you again on our beautiful beaches of 30A. Sincerely, Benchmark Management

Best location!!

by Arlington TX

5 of 5

This unit is in the perfect location and is very nice. The unit is spacious, has great views, comfortable beds, nice appliances, well-appointed kitchen & closest to beach. The bunk beds were great with adjustable reading lights, usb charging areas, safe perimeters with ladder. The unit was clean and well-appointed. Washer and dryer were great. Beds were very comfortable. Furniture was nice. New pillows are needed. We would have appreciated comfortable and new sofa and seating as these were worn out with no support. The bathroom tub areas need some upgrades also.

Response from Benchmark Management

Thank you for your feedback and suggestions. We appreciate you taking the time to leave us a review. The Palms offers close beach access and a great location for families to enjoy. We are glad to hear the bunk beds worked out well for your family. We will send your suggestions for a new sofa to the property managers as well. We are glad that you enjoyed your time here with us and we look forward to hosting your family again soon. Benchmark Management

The Palms C5

by Rosedale MS

The only negative was the horrible lumpy mattress on a king bed. Had to purchase a 4 inch topper for back pain.
Beautiful setting, otherwise.

Great Family Spot!

by Brenna C.

5 of 5

We LOVED this condo, the location, cleanliness, convenience of ground floor and beach facing. It was so painless to go to and from the beach multiple times a day for meals, breaks, etc. We absolutely plan on coming back to C5! Bonus points: had a keurig, washer dryer, plenty of kitchen items for fixing meals when you don’t want to eat out the entire trip, there were a few beach toys in the closet already (don’t bring a bunch), and there’s shower stations right at the top of the stairs when you come up from the beach to rinse off sand. No complaints here!

Enjoyed, relaxed, chilled. Rainy, windy due to hurricane Sally, but we were able to enjoy some of the restaurants except the last two days. I’ve stayed in the same unit before and love the location.

Perfect location for younger kids with easy access to the beach. We found the condo very clean, well equipped, & nicely updated. Bonus right by the pool. The only mishap is our code upon check in didn’t work but a lady came from the rental office ASAP to fix it. Looking to rent again already!

We thoroughly enjoyed our week at Seagrove Beach. Condo. had everything we needed and was very convenient to the beach. We had one issue with our sliding door and Garrett Realty maintenance was there to check it out shortly after I called.

Palms C5 = heaven

5 of 5

This adorable gulf front condo is it. There's no need to look anywhere else. On our second day we were checking the availability calendar to come back for another visit. The location is perfect, it's the most perfectly decorated condo I've ever stayed in, and so easy to work with Garrett Realty. We just loved it. We took our 1.5 year old son (used Coastal Crib Rentals which we would highly recommend!) and had an amazing time. We will be back, hopefully very soon!!

Best Unit in The Palms

5 of 5

We absolutely loved this condo! Location, location, location! It was the shortest walk to the beach right out the patio door, no stairs to deal with, grassy courtyard made for "big backyard" for kids to play, end unit had lots of windows for sunlight and great view of the sunsets from inside or out! So glad we found this gem!
