We stayed for a week in July in this rental and it was perfect for us. All 3 bedrooms had comfortable beds and we all had our own bathroom. Everything was clean and the kitchen is fully stocked with everything, you only need to shop for food. They even had a margarita maker! The pool was beautiful and the landscaping and lighting around the pool offered privacy and a great place to hang out after a day at the beach. One of the best features of this house is all the items they have in their garage for you to use. That made our drive from NC way easier because we didn't need to bring anything. They had a large cooler with wheels, a beach cart, noodles, boogie boards, lots of beach chairs, 2 pop up tents, tons of buckets/shovels/sand toys for the kids, beach towels, lots of kites, a cast net for fishing, inflatable rafts, paddle ball, frisbee's and even 2 bicycles! We did have to rent a bike because one of theirs had a flat tire but that's ok. The location is so convenient to Pine Ave where there are tons of shops, places to eat and the best ice cream shop on the island, Two Scoops. We rode the bikes over there a lot to shop and hang out. It took us 10 minutes to ride all the way over to the pier. The walk to the beach is only 2 blocks so that's very convenient and the beach at the end of their street was amazing. There are so many great places to eat on the island, we never had a bad meal but we ate in quite a bit because they have an awesome BBQ gas grill. We went paddle boarding, jet skiing, snorkeling, played putt putt (twice because that was fun) and to the beach every day. It really was the perfect vacation. A must do is going to the Shiny Fish Emporium on Pine Avenue and painting sand dollars for $10. They provide all the brushes, paints, you name it and even ideas for inspiration if you're not sure what to paint. They also put sparkly spray on it to seal it and a gorgeous ribbon to hang it. Great for kids but all of us were 17+ and we had a blast. A great memory keepsake. I highly recommend this rental to anyone looking for a great place to stay close to the best beaches and shopping on the island. It was perfect for the 6 of us and would definitely stay here again if we ever went back. PS, it's not far from Tropicana Field so we also took in a Rays game, and they won!!
