"This was a nice house although I felt a little pricey. Overall the house was in good shape but you can tell it's been used quite a bit. Floor in the kitchen needs some upkeep, icemaker in upstairs fridge didn't work (never got anyone to come and fix after a few requests) so we had to trek ice from the downstairs refrigerator. Lots of dishes and appliances in the kitchens. Rooms were nice - linens were in great shape and beds were comfortable. Pool was a nice size and a great place to cool off after a day at the beach. House comes with 8 beach chairs with umbrellas - all set up for you every day, that was really nice. Only negative were all the people alongside you - chair setups were on top of each other. House is next to a public access walkway but it wasn't a problem, attendants keep the public away from the private houses. Short bike ride away from Rosemary and Alys Beach.
Overall, a good stay. Tired of the 30A house prices going up and up so this might be my last rental for awhile. Almost $20K for a week on the beach just doesn't seem worth it anymore."

"The house is in a great location but the owner should really put some basic maintenance into the house during the off season. Simple things like paint, repairable equipment and grounds maintenance and you would have a much better house. The constant issues we had with the pool heater and the entire two day electrical project were a major inconvenience during our Spring Break week. Management was responsive after I got through the answering service but the issues we were having should have been noticed and fixed during the off season."

"Our family had a wonderful vacation at The Mirage. Let's start with the positives. The view of the beach is unbeatable and access is literally steps away from the sand. The deck furniture was ample and comfortable. Lovely decor. The furniture in the living room was exceptional...huge sofa and a good number of comfortable chairs. Huge dining room table. The beds were comfortable. Loved having the chairs/umbrella service provided. The separate kitchen and living space on the lower level was nice especially having younger children in the group...our families were able to spread out (nice for early risers and night owls). The location to Rosemary and Alys Beach was a short bike ride away. This property would have received 5 stars had it not been for a few things... We reached out to Benchmark two times before our arrival and double confirmed that the pool would be heated. We know that the weather is cool in October and no one likes swimming in cold water. We got to the house and the request for the pool heat had slipped through the cracks. Benchmark was never able to come through with sending out anyone to turn on the pool heater because "only one third party company is assigned to this house" and we were not able to get on the third party's schedule during the 6 days we were there. This for us was beyond unacceptable! Certainly with all of hundreds of pools on 30a there should be a company that could be called in as a backup. Contrary to some other reviews, this house IS next to a public beach access. Our stay was over Fall Break so there were a lot of people coming and going on the public access next to the house...but it wasn't really enough to dampen our stay in any way. The overall condition of the house is slowly falling apart and is NOT being maintained. The house was not as clean as it should be (cobwebs, dirty ceiling fans, etc.) . When paying top dollar for a property like this, it would have been nice to walk away feeling like EVERY penny spent was worth it."

"We stayed at this location for a wedding and the location alone was worth every penny. Amazing backdrop and easy access to the beach made this trip one to remember. It was great having enough rooms and kitchen setups to handle all our family in one home. The few things I would suggest for improvements would be more ceiling fans (especially in the bedrooms) and for the rooms on the lowest level to have some kind of dressers for clothes storage. Other than that there was some wear and tear on the stairs to the beach but I imagine that's hard to upkeep in Florida weather. The house was clean and provided practically everything we needed. We would definitely stay at this property again."

"This was the worst rental ever. For the price you’d expect the place to at least be cleaned, that was not the case. The pool was never cleaned. The house had no WiFi the entire trip. With no WiFi meant no tv. No WiFi also meant that the alarm didn’t work so the house was violating a crucial florida code for a home with a residential pool. Benchmark was a joke and offered a 500$ credit on a $11,500 stay. the home owner must be oblivious which is hard to believe seeing as how they own the other two homes right next to this one. RUN AWAY from benchmark."

"This was our first large family vacation. We had 6 adults and 7 children (2-12 year olds and 9, 7, 6, 3, 1 year olds). The king size bed and queen bedrooms on the main floor were a little tight but the small living area and kitchen was perfect. A plus with 2 washers and dryers. The 1 and 3 year olds stayed in the king bedroom with their parents, they made it work. Each had its own bathroom, small but nice. Easy access to the pool and beach.
The second floor bunk beds were perfect for the rest of the kids. Main kitchen and dining/living area nice with a beautiful ocean view. 3rd floor had great large bathroom and beautiful balcony view.
The location was perfect, chairs and umbrellas were complimentary and set up each day on the beach front. I never used the backpack chairs I rented. The stairs to the beach could use some repairs. The beach area was beautiful, not packed.
We rented 2- 6 seater golf carts, perfect for close restaurants and site-seeing.
I would recommend this place, lovely location and access to the beach. It was very clean and the rental personnel very attentive and friendly.

"We had a great time at The Mirage. The pool was great and beach access was phenomenal. Our only complaints were the balconies were not fully accessible to us due to some structural concerns that we were told would be fixed. However, the lumber wasn't delivered until we were leaving on our last day. Also, the listing said there was a pullout sofa bed on the second floor (which we needed) but it had been removed prior to our stay. Overall we had a great time. Fortunately, we are an easy going group and rolled with the flow. But be sure to ask lots of questions before you get there."

"We booked the Mirage for our large group based solely on the fact that a HEATED POOL was advertised. I paid for the “heat” to be turned on in the pool at least two weeks out and made at least three calls prior to arriving regarding this. The pool was like ICE and a service person never came out. (We were given 2/3 differing stories when we called for resolution) Benchmark waited until I fussed to address the pool. We had 12 very disappointed guests. The dishwasher had NO HOT WATER so our dishes were a greasy mess during Thanksgiving We had to hand wash them (NOT FUN) while cooking for 12-15. The closet door in the downstairs king room was completely off and just thrown into the closet. THE LACK OF TOWELS WAS SO ANNOYING! We had 6 lil ones sharing bathrooms and had to wash towels daily. Imagine drying dishes w two flimsy dish towels?
I will be asking for a partial refund because we were never given the chance to change our house and move closer to Rosemary Beach where we would have preferred to stay. In my opinion, if top prices are going to be charged, the house should have been in immaculate shape with everything working perfectly. The Mirage is a beautiful house but we will not stay there again because of all the issues. When I arrived back home and I called Benchmark to discuss all of this, I was told “ a manager will call you back by end of day / Monday”. I still have not heard from Benchmark management."

"This is a wonderful location, very close to Alys beach and not far to Rosemary. The private, direct beach access was so wonderful with kids. The pool is decent sized for the area. The beach area in front of this property is very private and there weren’t crowds of people. The house accommodated 3 families. The house, however, has been ran pretty hard this summer, it appeared. It definitely needs fixed up throughout, but it was very clean and met all of our needs, it just wasn’t the luxury we were used to from some other rental companies in the area. The dishwashers are horrible and both of them would not clean the dishes so that made for an annoying week in the kitchen. With some needed updates this place could be a 5 star property."

"Only 2 non-positive comments: 1) unless you were on the top floor, the beach view is extremely limited. Not the water, but the beach. Difficult to view the other parties from the house. 2) The house is extremely nice, however there needs to be some minor repair work to keep it up: Lower floor bathroom toilet paper holder hanging by a thread, critical need of general caulking and repair work, The king bed in downstairs room needs to be replaced with a smaller bed; getting around the room is difficult. Generally, all was good. The best part was the main floor porch, in that it was safe for our small children to run and play on. The weathered stairs to the beach had some screws sticking up that were a danger to bare feet and could cause a fall. The pool was wonderful (especially after we paid for it to be heated!) however, both ends were dirty on the bottom.... didn't expect that would be the case."

It was nice to have the private pool and the beach is just steps away. The views at sunset are stunning! That being said, the home is not being maintained very well. The leak in one of the bedrooms mentioned in previous reviews is still there with the obvious stain on the ceiling. Home also needs painting. Bare wood replacement pieces had weathered without ever being painted when repaired. Also a broken step on the beach walkover was a bit hazardous. Just lots of small things needed attention, and there were a few housekeeping items we noticed upon arrival as well. Dirty towel found in one of the bathrooms, items left behind by former guests, as examples. Also, a full length mirror somewhere in the house would have been nice just to check your appearance before heading out for dinner. Lots of potential in this home, but needs more attention to detail to be a top notch property."

"Great week at this wonderful location. The house is beautifully decorated and had everything we needed for a wonderful stay. The pool and patio furniture, and gas grill were also a great help to have available. We did use both washers, but experienced issues with the spin cycle not fully draining, but sent a message via the Benchmark app, so hopefully they will quickly inspect and address what might be a clogged or kinked line. We also messaged about two broken boards and a broken railing on the stairs down to the beach, so do be careful if those aren't fixed yet upon your arrival. All the houses in this area sit high above sand dunes, so be prepared for many steps. The views are gorgeous. Not all bedrooms have TV's if that's a family expectation - for us it was not and not a problem. The public access for the neighborhood behind runs beside the property, and there is a beach service rental box for umbrellas and chairs right next to this home's access, so put your umbrella and chairs out very early if you want the spot right in front of the property. This is actually very close to Alys Beach, and then Rosemary Beach, so if you do rent bikes you will have very easy access to all those areas also have to offer."

We also enjoyed eating our meals up there instead of fighting long waits at restaurants. So, we ordered and picked up from our favorite spots and ate dinner with gorgeous sunset views!
Having the private pool was a huge plus with waterfall sounds that are soothing poolside. There is a beach access right beside this unit, but the beach setup people made sure our 4 umbrellas and 8 chairs were front and center. We would definitely stay here again!

Water leaks in the bathrooms around the shower/tub areas. There was no broom or vacuum at all in the house, so we were not able to clean the floors our entire stay!

Bring a few board games for a rainy day.

Mirage's location (easily bike to Alys / Rosemary and 10 minute car ride to Seaside) is ideal. Only a few private homes surround this rental, so the beach is not crowded and only 20 stairs away. The pool area was great for entertaining.

We rented Bikes using our credit from Benchmark and we rented backpack beach chairs from The Rental Shop 30A - great experiences with both companies. The bedroom set up is nice for 4 couples or 2-3 families. The door in between the 2nd floor master and bunk room is very thin.

"The home is the perfect setting. Didn't realize the public access is located right next door, however it posed zero problem. Great views, nice furnishings, comfortable home. Needs some TLC, but I understand a new owner is in place and that should do it. Our large family had a wonderful time!"

"The home showed considerably better in the photographs than in reality.
Walking into the home for the first time, we see several broken stair treads. First day, toilet on third floor won’t flush, toilet on second floor backs up and water overflows into hallway. We received a very quick response from the management company and they ‘resolved’ the problem right away, though we had to continue plunging toilets throughout our stay. There was a roach problem in the small bathroom on the second floor-large roaches. Nowhere to hang towels to dry in bathrooms, towel bars or rings would be helpful.
The furnishings were very nice and updated but the home, in general, lacked Some general maintenance.
The location of the home is it’s saving grace. It has it’s own walkway directly to the beach. If it had not been for this detail, we would’ve been very displeased with the rental."

"First of all, the pictures do not do this home justice! The living area is so beautiful and the view is beyond expectations! The furnishings are both high end & e xtremely comfortable & it is obvious that they have been recently replaced ! And the master on the 3rd floor —- it looks like an ad out of Pottery Barn — so beautiful & tasteful !

So many positives about this home - location, pool, furnishings, management company. This home will not disappoint!

Our family reunion group of 12 & a toddler was perfect, thanks to Benchmark & The Mirage !"

"After four years of spending spring break together, we may have found the perfect house! Housing 8 people (2 families of 4), we are always looking for something to make everyone happy. The Mirage had it! Plenty of room, lovely decor, comfortable furniture & bedding and the perfect location...with a pool! The kids loved hopping on the bikes provided and riding to nearby stores and ice cream shops. We loved being so close to many restaurants and activities, but not in the middle of the crowds of Seaside or Rosemary or Panama City. The view is amazing! Being able to get right to the beach from our backyard was the best! It is obvious the owners are working on upgrading, as all the furniture and decor seemed new. There are a few minor maintenance items that need to be addressed (paint, repairs to walls new doors), but they are not big enough to keep us away. We are looking forward to staying at The Mirage again soon!"

"We had a great time staying at The Mirage. The location was perfect, the house was clean and the customer service was excellent. I would recommend The Mirage. It is dated and needs regular house maintenance that has been delayed."

"We had a wonderful time at the Mirage. The location was perfect--steps from the beach with great balconies for morning coffee and drinks at sunset. We enjoyed having bikes to explore nearby and our own pool for relaxing. The palm trees and flowers around the pool gave the place a nice tropical feeling. Beds were comfortable and there was plenty of seating for meals. The master bedroom was especially nice. The management company was very helpful and responsive to our needs. We would definitely recommend this place to others."

"Overall, we were very pleased with the rental. The property needs a bit of touchup, but that could be ascribed to the fact it was up for sale, and indeed apparently during our stay there, it was sold or changed hands.

Location is fantastic, plus the sunset views from the 3rd floor. It was well-equipped.

Main problem encountered was the Internet going out while we were there, which necessitated some hours of work on my part, plus having Mediacom come in and fix it. During my work on the Internet, I found that a couple of the TVs in the house weren't even hooked up, which I took care of. The management company was pretty responsive, and they agreed to heat the pool for free (although I don't recall that we were supposed to pay for that - the ad said heated pool), in compensation for the problems with the Internet.

Overall, we had a great week there."
