We rented this house for a week in July and were very pleased! There ended up being 16 of us in the house, 6 adults and 10 kids ranging from 8-17, but we still had plenty of room. We brought 2 blow up mattresses, however there were some already there so it wasn't necessary. Anything you could possibly want or need was provided. The house is very spacious and open, so we never felt crowded when eating meals either. The decks are huge and have a lot of seating for relaxing and enjoying the views. Our children preferred the Gulf side over the Sound side for swimming, so we made a lot of trips across the street. Thankfully, the house also had awnings to set up on the beach for shade so we could stay all day but still get some relief from the sun. The biggest pain is pulling the wagon through the sand with all the beach stuff, but totally worth it. Both the kids and adults had a wonderful time! Thanks, Carol!
