We had a fantastic time at the Gulf Escape home. This home is very well situated on the island, about 1/2 mile from restaurants, ice cream shop, grocery story and Starbucks, in one direction, and the public beach about 1/2 mile away in the other direction, all within walking distance. Dan has thought of everything to make his guests feel right at home, including beach and pool toys, bikes, extra blankets, a book of island activities, very comfortable patio furniture, a gas grill, lounge chairs, a garage refrigerator for extra food and drink storage, candles and other numerous small touches. The indoor furniture and mattresses were all very nice and comfortable. The pool was fantastic and large enough for four kids to all enjoy together. The house was even better than the pictures. We have seven people in our family who stayed in this home, with three generations, and we all felt that we had our own space. The kitchen is completely stocked with everything you could possibly need. We especially appreciated that everything in the kitchen and all light and fan switches were labeled. The house was very clean when we arrived. The only very small issue we had was in the beginning when the wi-fi password didn't work. But, Dan was immediately accessible via cell phone and gave us the new password. He also was very responsive to emails. I would highly recommend this home to anyone and would love to go back again.
