My husband and I decided at the last minute we wanted to go to the beach, so our rental options were very limited. We found a studio unit at the Village of South Walton through Oaseas on Booking.com, loved the location and price, and booked. The property itself is in a great location. The unit was adequate, and exactly what was described in the description. We didn't have any problems with the staff like some of the other reviewers did. Our key was in the lock-box, and we didn't have any problems checking in. We did try to call their Customer Care to check out since the office was closed, but no one picked up, so I hope that doesn't come back to bite us!
In regards to the hidden fees... They are pretty ridiculous. When we booked the unit, the total was $98/night, and that's all we were charged at the time. We knew it didn't include sales tax, resort fee, and city tax - Booking.com was pretty clear on that. However, we did the math, determined that all of those "extras" should only be $98 and we booked anyway. When we went to pay that $98, it had increased to $153... We were charged a $10 reservation fee, a $10 registration fee, a $56 cleaning fee, a $45 non-refundable limited damage waiver, and $32 in taxes. If you are going to book through Oaseas, you should be aware of all the hidden fees.
