Diamond in the rough. Bring a book!

by Kingsport TN

4 of 5

Overall, our stay was good. The property was clean and the check in/ check out process was easy. The beds were very comfortable and the kitchen well supplied.
However, this location needs updating. The Wi Fi does not work. They even sent a repairmen out to no avail. There are too many people in this area. They are all trying to use Wi Fi and it overloads it. So no TV or internet the entire time we were there. The outside spaces definitely need work. The back screened in porch is dirty and the screen doors don’t close all the way. They’re very old and rusted. The fireplace in the front room is just odd. It gives it a mountain cabin feel. At least paint the stones white? Compared to the properties it’s beside of and the properties going up around this property, an update is desperately needed.
Parking is okay but we nearly got hit a couple of times trying to pull out of the driveway with cars coming off 395 too quickly.
This place COULD be a great property. It just needs some attention and Wi Fi.

Nice spot for a vacation!

by Auburn AL

5 of 5

This was the perfect location for our quick trip to the beach! The home is just as it appears in the photos. There was plenty of space for our family of 6 plus 2 dogs. This home is a little older than other in this neighborhood, with a little wear, but nothing severe or off-putting. It was just what we needed for our stay. It is about a 5 minute walk to the beach, 10 minute walk to the square with all the beachside restaurants and shops, and 5 minute drive to the Publix and the Perfect Pig restaurant. The neighborhood is quiet and perfect for morning walks in the shade under the beautiful trees. Benchmark Management was easy to work with and quick to respond when we needed to ask questions. The kitchen was stock with all the necessities. Bring extra toilet paper and paper towels. There was a fenced in area for our pets to enjoy as well and a small creek in the back yard that was very peaceful in the morning during coffee. Overall, this was a nice stay and I would recommend it to others.

Comfortable place

We spent Christmass in this amazing location and the Reel Relaxing has been a great choice. The house was very nice, clean and comfortable inside, close to the beach and only 15 min walk from central Seasise Square.

Response from Benchmark Management

Barbara, Thank you for sharing your wonderful experience! We're delighted that Reel Relaxing provided you with a comfortable and enjoyable stay during your Christmas holiday. We hope to welcome you back again soon! Sincerely, Benchmark Management!

Special Family Vacation - Three Kids Under Six

by Atlanta Ge

5 of 5

This classic Seagrove Beach home is tucked in a cute part of Seagrove, three blocks from the beach. It's a 3-minute bike ride or an 8-minute walk down 395's sidewalk to the public beach access point directly across from Surfing Deer.

The layout of the bedrooms and common areas was great for our family of five (three kids under 6 and two adults).

The house finishes, furnishings (club chairs and microsuede red recliner need slipcovers or a deep clean), and the appliances are quite dated, however very very functional for what was needed. The rental staff were also timely, communicative, and friendly when we had a few questions.

We didn't use the screened-in porch as the vintage metal chairs were very uncomfortable for the kids and just not...cozy or inviting to really want to sit out there. BUT, we did see a beautiful deer in the yard the one time we were out on the screened-in porch. That was a very special memory!

The home is VERY close to Seaside proper, Seagrove classic spots (Cafe 30-A, Brozinni's, Surfing Deer, etc.), and the Watercolor Publix.

A plus was having the garage to store sand-covered items from the beach. The house was advertised as not having any beach gear and provided a rental credit to Vacayzen (A local rental company for all manner of beach items). The credit was enough for three beach chairs and an umbrella for the week. Greatly appreciated!

Overall, for the price, the layout of the home with kids, and the location, it worked really well for our family and we made some impactful and meaningful memories.

Response from Benchmark Management

Deborah, We are thrilled to hear your family enjoyed your trip! We are honored you choose to book your vacation with us and are glad to see you enjoyed many things provided with this home and your reservation! We will certainly pass along your comments regarding newer appliances as well as different seating to fully enjoy the screened in porch. We are so happy you and your family made beautiful memories while at our property and we would be thrilled to host all your future trips to the beach. Sincerely, Benchmark Management.

A Hidden gem in the heart of Old Seagrove

by Slidell La

5 of 5

We just adored this little quaint cottage in the heart of Old Seagrove. It was perfect for my in-laws and our family of four. It was close enough to Seaside to walk or ride a bike, and plenty of places to walk our dogs. The yard had plenty of room for our dogs to run and play. We will definitely be returning here in the future. Definitely a hidden gem in the heart of Old Seagrove!!

52 Canal Street was in a great location. Only a 10 minute walk away from the beach and the craziness that is 30A . Would definitely come back to this property.

A great trip!!

by Smyrna GA

5 of 5

We took a girls trip to Reel Relaxing and really enjoyed our stay!!! The cottage was very clean, it was an easy walk or bike ride to the beach, had a well-appointed kitchen, spacious living area and comfortable beds. The AC and ice maker worked perfectly! Our only comment was that the outdoor furniture could use some updating. The screened-in porch in the back was difficult/awkward to use because it was only accessed from inside, by going through one of the bedrooms. The side patio was a great space, but the small table and broken, mis-matched chairs made it not as usable/comfortable. It would have been nice to sit outside and enjoy the early mornings and evenings.

Response from Benchmark Management

Krista, Thank you for sharing your feedback. We were honored to have you and are so humbled by your response. Our apologies that we let you down in the patio/outdoor furniture we will have to address this with the owner. We work hard each and every day to bring ours guests the best vacation experience. We can’t wait to see you again and make it a complete 5-star experience for you. Sincerely, Benchmark Management
