"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."

"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."

"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."

"The local was good! The houses around this one was way different, meaning better! It felt like the ugly duckling. The inside needs updating bad! The king size mattress needs to be replaced bad! It was awful to sleep on and the pillows as well. The back yard was to scary for us so we didn't even go out back."

"Overall, we had a great stay. The property was clean but definitely a little dated. The location is wonderful. It's an easy walk to the beach and very close to shopping and restaurants. I would say our biggest complaints were the TV in the living room and the beds. The TV is from the 90's and only has cable with a DVD player. The cable worked about half the time, and you're not able to stream anything. The beds were extremely uncomfortable with flat pillows and plastic mattresses."

"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!"

"It's just an old house in a great location (.25mi from the beach/restaurants/shops). As long as you know that, you won't be disappointed paying so much. But I did not know that...

Benchmark describes themselves "a vacation rental company providing a luxurious experience with top-notch hospitality. " However, this property is not remotely associated with luxury. For over $600/night I would have expected...something else. If this review gets posted publicly, and people read it, at least they will know what they are getting...

1. The house is very old and is not well maintained. From the curb appeal to the gates to the front door to the kitchen to the fixtures to the floors to the master bath (!) it is clearly just an old, outdated, standard accommodation (NOT LUXURY) house that someone (an elderly couple from how the house smelled) is having Benchmark manage.
2. Broken/failing things: The front door's glass will not close properly, leaving the screen open all the time; the kitchen sink leaks (I think just the handle is loose), the back door to the screened porch is extremely hard to open (but does look new); the light in the master bed is burned out (simple fix).
3. The master bed is rock hard, so if you have an issue with your back it will be great but if like more plush accommodations, BYO mattress topper.
4. Three outdoor seating spaces: The outdoor spaces have had zero maintenance. The front patio table is just old and rusty, but the mismatched plastic adirondaks are broken (if you weigh more than ~250, they will fail). The back...space (not yard) has an old, rusted metal glider bench with no cushions; it did not look inviting, rather scary, so we did not sit in it and cannot attest to its functionality. The screened porch does have a charcoal grill and two inviting rocking chairs, but as long as you know you have to sweep for spiders and that the space is just an unmaintained outdoor space, you won't be disappointed.
5. No back/"

"We have stayed at a wide range of places, this has been by far our worst rental experience. We are simple people and do not have crazy high expectations. The only good thing about this place is the location. (1) When you pay hundreds of dollars in cleaning fees, you expect that the place would be clean! Dirty floors, leftover hair and mold in the showers, cobwebs walls, stains on the sheets, holes in the blankets, the trash can was full of mold (something I would have never looked at of had it not been for the smell). (2) ROACHES, if this site had a place to upload photos, I would gladly do so. (3) Kitchen is completely not equipped for cooking even the simplest meals. It felt like they grabbed a bunch of trashy mismatched rusty pans, plastic cups and utensils from goodwill and shoved them in the cabinets. (4) Completely out of date, the TVs so small they look like computer monitors it is very inexpensive now to buy a decent sized television so that just hammers home the fact that the owners of this location do not want to spend any money, outdoor furniture is rusted, some pillows that were not actually pillows but rather a pillow case stuffed with cotton that was falling out! Meaning that the pillow case was probably not washed between tenants as it would be a real mess to have to fill it back up with loose cotton each time! (5) It rained for a couple hours one day and before we knew it the driveway was completely flooded because there is so much outdoor debris that the drain got clogged. I called the rental company who said they would send someone, an hour later and no one came, we spend two hours unclogging it ourselves to save the garage from flooding, what a great way to spend our vacation! Oh and don’t forget one roll of toilet paper per bathroom so bring your own because these people are stingy!"

"This home is in terrible condition. Black mold in both showers and shower curtains. Furniture so old and worn and dirty that it needs to be replaced. All outside areas unusable due to filth of furniture and lack of cleanliness. Televisions so small you can barely see from across the room. No way to secure garage door. Laundry located in >100 degree garage. It states there is room for four vehicles. Truth is barely two. If it rains you can’t park in driveway. The driveway floods even with a small amt of rain and you have to step in 4”-6” of water to get to the front door of the home. The description of what we thought we were getting versus what we actually received were completely different. Do not recommend this rental until it is completely refurbished."

"Great Location, outdated home
The location is great as Seagrove beach is just a few blocks away and Seaside center is just under a mile away. The house as well as its furnishings are outdated. This property needs serious updating and a a deep cleaning."

"The house is in a great location and surrounded with new and renovated homes all around it. However, this property really needs to be renovated. The Master bath is circa 70/80’s and very tiny. The vinyl floor throughout the house shows every sandy footprint without adequate tools to clean up daily. The back porch is only accessible through one of the bedrooms which makes it almost unusable. There is no decent outdoor furniture to speak of. The yard was a mess when we were there, but the landscapers came on our last day and it looked a bit better after that. There was a minor plumbing issue they scheduled to work on during our stay and we received many conflicting calls about it from the management company. They showed up to repair it at 6Pm the night before our departure. Oh and the TV’s are all tiny and in odd locations.
If you want a budget friendly Rental In a good location (and do not care about the quality of house) then this will work for you. Otherwise you might want to consider other properties."

"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."
