In the words of Stefon from SNL, "This place has EVERYTHING." It's true! This is my first experience with a HomeAway vacation property and I can honestly say that it may be time to turn in my Ritz Rewards card.
Over Columbus Day weekend, me and three girlfriends met up for a girls weekend getaway here on Rock Port Beach. As one of the first two girls to arrive, I felt like a cast member of MTV's Real World, anxiously running from floor to floor to stake my claim of the first of the four (huge) bedrooms. After dropping my bags and kicking off my heels, I set out to explore the beautiful beach house we would be taking over for the weekend. I felt like one of those people you see on HGTV, because every time I turned a corner I would hear myself saying, "Wow" "No way!" "Did you see this room?!" "This place is AWESOME!" Perfection.
Of our holiday weekend beach vacation, my favorite moments were at "our beach house." From our first night toasting the warm gulf breeze with a chilled bottle of Sauvignon Blanc, swaying in the hammocks while watching the never resting thrill seeking girls of the group paddle boarding off the waterfront dock. It was a weekend of sleeping in late, cozily nestled in our warm comfy beds, feeding the ducks from our patio over morning coffee, bicycling to the Grog Bar to enjoy a pre-dinner sunset. -You get the picture.
One observation I must mention for vacationers with children or young adults. I was blown away with everything the beach house has to offer for the young and "wired in." Wi-Fi, Blu Ray, Cable, DVD, Stereo, Nintendo Wi, EVERYTHING. There are bicycles for every age of the family. Like to Kayak, there are Kayaks. Paddle Boards, check. Fishing? Yep. Like to cook? This place is stocked with everything you need in addition to two outdoor cooking areas, a fish fry and gas grill.
It was a weekend to remember and we're eagerly planning our next getaway back to our "beach house." Thank you so much for a great vacation. See you in 2015! - "The Girls"
