We stayed in the house in June of 2013 and have already booked the house for the summer of 2014. We vacation with the same group of 4 families each summer. We have 8 adults and about 8 kids. The house suits our needs very well. Each adult couple gets their own room and there is a bunk room for the kids. The 2nd floor game room also has a sofa sleeper where a couple of kids can sleep, but all of our kids seemed to like to pile into the bunk room together.
We have always stayed in nice beach front homes with great views but this is our first time with a private pool. We will never go back to having a shared pool with other guests or a condo association ever again. The private pool allows the adults to hang around and enjoy some relaxing time on the deck while the kids swim.
The views are great and there is always a nice breeze coming in off of the gulf. We were also very pleased to find that the beach is not very crowded at all.
I highly recommend this home for a large family or group. They also have the 2 houses next door if your group is too large for this home. We considered doubling the size of our group and getting the house next door... maybe next year.
