Great vacation rental!

by Dallas TX

We loved staying at the Hidden Gem. We had 13 people and there was plenty of room. We ended up going to to the public beach at inlet because the private beach was too small and crowded. The only maintenance issues we had were several recessed light bulbs were burned out and the propane tanks for the gas grill were empty and we had to refill one of them to use the grill. Overall, nice property in a great location, would rent again!

Response from Benchmark Management

Thank you for staying with us, Margaret! We are elated to hear that you had a great time. One of the best things about The Hidden Gem is that it provides guests with more than one beach access point which worked great for you and your family to escape the holiday crowd. We look forward to hosting you and your family again soon! Regards, benchmark Management

The size and layout of the house worked perfect for us. We loved the screen porch! If you are going to Seacrest Beach book chairs ASAP. we found Inlet Beach very nice & a short drive.

Response from Benchmark Management

Dear Lynn, Thank you for sharing your experience at our property! We're thrilled that the size and layout of the house suited your needs perfectly, and it's wonderful to hear that you enjoyed the screen porch. Your tip about booking chairs in advance for Seacrest Beach is greatly appreciated. We're delighted you found Inlet Beach to be a pleasant discovery and a short drive away—your insight will undoubtedly benefit future guests. We'd be honored to host your family again for another excellent beach vacation at The Hidden Gem! Sincerely, Benchmark Management

The house was great! Perfectly located, spacious and beautiful! Benchmark management However, fell flat. From missing information to access the home to not having our wristbands for access to the pool and beach until the very end of our second day there, I don’t have good things to say about them. I will never book through benchmark again.

Response from Benchmark Management

We are glad to hear that you enjoyed the house and found it to be perfectly located, spacious, and beautiful. However, we are truly sorry to hear about the challenges you faced with Benchmark Management, including missing information and delayed access to pool and beach amenities. It's important that the booking process and check-in experience are smooth and hassle-free. We strive to provide all of our guests with excellent customer service. We appreciate you sharing your feedback, and I'll make sure to pass this information along to the relevant parties. We value your input, and we hope to have the opportunity to provide a better experience in the future. Kind regards, Benchmark Management
