If you're ready for a beach day, head down to your access right at the end San Roy Road, about a 4-minute walk. Enjoy both the Gulf and Eastern Lake. This is a 2+ acre stretch of beach with plenty of room and is the recommended beach for your stay at Beachside Villas. And, for your convenience, Beachside Villas provides transportation to and from this beach access via golf cart service from March – October (please call us for specific dates).

"We enjoyed our time in the condo. The close proximity to the beach was a plus, along with the small pool near building 11. It was disappointing that we couldn't set up on the beach near the condo without paying for chairs.

Our condo's kitchen was nicely stocked with cookware, dishes and utensils. We do suggest the owners replace the master bed frame and one of the twin bed frames. Both mattresses sagged in the middle. The sheets on the master bed did not fit and kept coming off. It would have also been nice to have clothes hangers."

"Staying in unit 621 at Beachside Villas was an okay experience while the views were immaculate, we had many issues during our stay. Our lock got stuck, having us locked out of our room for over 30 minutes, to the point where we had to scale our balcony to gain access to our room. Someone from Benchmark came out to fix the door, which was great! But, getting ahold of an agent to let them know the issue was a bit of a hassle.

We also paid a pretty penny for this condo, and while it was lovely, it was a bit outdated in some areas, which didn’t really add up to the prices we were paying. There’s also the issue with the private beaches, but that’s not Benchmarks fault at all, just the greedy owners of the condos beside them.

All in all, it was a good stay. I would recommend Beachside Villas to my friends and family, but i would also have them ready their expectations.

My family has been vacationing at Beachside Villas for decades and I plan to continue to."

"I wouldn’t book this Rental again, they need to address the mold that is in the vents. It seems they’ve cleaned the vent that’s in the living room and in the master bedroom, but the worst mold was in the bedroom that our kids were in that has the two Queen/full beds.
we have chosen to stay with benchmark for the past decade we have enjoyed booking through the company, Yet this rental was a bit disappointing for us.
The view is great (pictures are accurate of the amount of ocean you see from balcony), the furniture is actually updated more than the picture show.
Cons:
Fix the mold issues in the air duct boot vents
Add more kitchens supplies, like measuring cups, keep in mind there is no pantry.
Lack of hot water, be prepared to divide up shower time, dishwasher running, or washer running.
Walking down to the beach, they do want someone monitoring the beach, be prepared to only be able to sit in the designated area. That’s a four minute walk or a trolley ride.
Pro: The view from balcony
Games and puzzles they had stocked
three beach chairs
Beds were comfy

"We’ve stayed in multiple units over the years in this same complex. This one undoubtedly has the best view of the whole complex. It has great proximity to the beach access. We encountered a couple issues during our stay, the dishwasher was completely broken, and management did make it right with a partial refund and provided paper plates and plastic cutlery. There were tiny ants in the kitchen as well. All in all, it’s a good unit, but probably not a great unit. I’d give it a 7 out of 10."

Will return to area and use someone else's property. Looks like they are rebuilding the area and piece mailing the units together, what is left.

"I have tried to make contact a few times with my concerns and had 0 luck getting any resolution. From 2 dirty units, broken air conditioning, no hot water in one bathroom, 1 towel in the entire condo, beer cans and food under beds and couches, no blankets on 2 beds, maintenence items such as paint cans left in utility room, broken dryer lint filter, broken door, the list could go on. I love this location and have been coming for 10 years. I can not believe how poor customer care has become that I've gotten no response or resolution. Was told I should've called within 24 hrs. Well guess what? I called for FOUR DAYS! No answer. Finally when I got one and was told basically too late o well it's past 24 hrs I informed her I'd tried for days and she tells me yes we have thousands of properties and we are understaffed sometimes it takes a few days. So how is anyone supposed to contact them with issues in 24 hrs? Not even an I'm sorry or here is your cleaning fee back or ANY resolution. Had it been any attempt to make it right we would continue to visit every year but to be snubbed has me looking for a different company."

"Fun and relaxing stay at Beachside Villas 621. Unit was very nice and in an excellent location to the beach with a gorgeous view. Only downside was after checkout. We had a very disappointing interaction with Benchmark. We followed all instructions and left the unit in very good condition with the same number of wrist bands that were furnished upon check in. They alleged there were missing wrist bands and charged us for them. After asking management to contact me, they never contacted me as requested. Left an unfortunate bad taste to an otherwise delightful week"

"This property is in a great location very close to the beach and pool. On the other hand the general state of the apartment isn’t great. Both bathrooms are very outdated and need remodeling, general cleanliness wasn’t great. The kitchen had some upgrades but was missing enough pots and pans, there were only 3 wine glasses so if we would have been all adults that would have caused issues.
When I emailed prior to arrival to request an early arrival never got a reply when we arrived early they weren’t very flexible to accommodate us even though the property was ready.
Overall no major hiccups but a lot of small niggles."

"Beachside Villas 621 is an absolute beautiful location; possibly, the best condo in the complex considering the view! The condo is in need of a few updates, and if updates are made...... I would highly recommend! Also, I would like for all future vacationers to be aware of the "private owner's" 'rights' to the beach - it seems that all Beachside Villas' tenants have zero rights for the beach directly in front of the boardwalk. Take note of the maps viewing the beach access and the beach area leased by Beachside Villas; this was is a very disappointing fact to those that are use to staying here for years. Beachside Villas is an amazing complex and the management has never disappointed! Overall, we had the most wonderful time and unit 621 will always be special to our family!"

"The condo was beautiful and the view was amazing. If I’m being completely honest we have stayed at beachside villas for 4 years now and I lived the convenience of just walking onto the beach with our kids because as everyone knows when you have kids it’s a lot of work to get to the beach. With the availability and convenience of that being taken away, at no fault of the condo owner, it made this stay a little less pleasant. The owners did provide transportation to the beach that is leased to them, but then you have a trek downhill with all you beach junk to find your beach service. Then on the way back you get to trek uphill with all of it at the end of the day. Again the condo and the services provided to offset these unfortunate set of events were superb, but we will probably not stay again until our kids are older because it makes it quite difficult. I do want to reiterate that the condo owners are doing the best they can and they do have their beautiful pool available, it’s just our preference to go to the beach all day."

"The location of the condo was great, as well as the views of the beach. Having the boardwalk access was tremulously helpful when carrying all the beach necessities.

The king bed in the master bedroom is extra firm. If you aren't used to a firm mattress, this will cause a very sore lower back. There were a few outlets that were loose causing a sparking sound when plugging in something. These were located in the master bedroom and one in the living room. I'm not positive if there are other outlets in this condition as I was afraid of testing any other outlets.

"We stayed at BSV 4 yrs ago and we came back because the location is perfect and the beaches are lovely. This unit has been neglected and is need of some TLC. I have several pictures of caked on dust, cracked light fixtures and poorly patched walls. Also, we had to walk 400 yards down the beach to find our chair rentals. Why is Walton County forcing home owners to privatize their beaches? There is plenty of open spaces but the public beaches are crowded. I know this is not the fault of the mgmt co or the condo owner but you need to let the county know it will effect your income. It is unlikely we will return or recommend to friends."

Great location and ocean views
Very easy walk to the beach with minimal stairs
Large complex with nice amenities
The management company was very responsive and helpful

Cons:
Could have been a little cleaner upon arrival
The unit looks a little beat up- needs some paint and other small repairs. There were a lot of stains on the couch and pillows.
It was hard finding a spot on the beach due to the properties on either side not allowing people to use their area. It was not enjoyable watching the security guards hassle families for even walking by. Having this issue disclosed prior to booking would have been preferable."

"This was our 2nd time renting unit 621. The view from the unit is beautiful! The unit itself is in need of updates but is functional. However, and this was a big deal, guests from all 12 Beachside Villas buildings are no longer allowed to use anything but the small sliver of sand between the properties to the left and the right. It is a very small sliver of sand and there are many, many guests. Security guards are present to ensure no one sits or even plays on the sand across property lines, and it was a very unwelcoming experience. Guests are now expected to walk down a road to access the beach at a point that cannot be seen from the condo, and with kids and beach supplies in tow it is much more of a hassle (and takes longer than 3 minutes) than accessing the beach in front of the condo, and no parking is allowed. This change was not communicated to us in any way, and we were completely unprepared for it. So while the soft sand might only be steps away from the unit, you aren't actually allowed to enjoy it. A few days during our stay we had to make arrangements to enjoy the beach at a different location, which is not at all what we had in mind when we paid to stay at a unit this close to the beach. I am disappointed in the change as well as the lack of communication regarding it. Unfortunately, this was a very disappointing stay, and I don't think we will return."

"I love Beachside Villas and have stayed there many times and this was the 2nd time for Unit 621. Beachside Villas is conveniently located with reasonable rates. The only thing missing from the complex is a fitness center.

Now, for Unit 621, It has a GREAT view of the beach and beach walkway, I could sit on the balcony all day IF they had furniture you could sit on. There are only 4 chairs and two on them were in disrepair. The chair in the picture hasn't existed for at least a year. It seems the owners started an update and quit. The kitchen has been totally updated, except they forgot to include a toaster. There is a very bright light outside the master bedroom, so if you want a dark bedroom at night, this will be a problem. Also the HVAC doesn't cool the master bedroom very well. The ceiling fans and the remote controls didn't seem to understand each other. The bathrooms have not been updated and the vanities are very low. The bedspreads are from another era. New washer and dryer! The living room only has a dated/stained sofa, no chairs, no lamps or side tables. The rug in the master bedroom is a hazard. The unit needs to be painted and holes repaired. The wood floors are in rough shape (sand has not been kind). There are no hooks near the front door for hats, keys, etc. 621 could be a GREAT unit in a great complex.

I will be back in a few weeks and it will probably be Beachside Villas, but it will NOT be Unit 621.

There is also a lot of construction in the area, so if you are bothered by the noise or traffic, you will want to take that in to consideration. They didn't seem to start too early or stay too late.
