COMMENTS & REFERENCES:
Even more wonderful than I imagined!! Last week proved to be the most enjoyable vacation I have ever been blessed to experience. Your place is not only comfortable, convenient, and pretty, but has a warm, 'at home' atmosphere that made every moment special. My favorite room was the big screened porch. Our granddaughters could play at the shore, and we could keep our eyes on them in comfort & peace of mind. It was absolutely grand!! We also enjoyed cooking our meals with the great ocean view. I thanked the Lord every day for allowing us to be there!
Just wanted to say thanks again, the house was beautiful, and so was the town.
Kids cried when we left which was sad but let us know how much fun they really had.
Every thing you sent us was right on the money. thanks for your honesty.
We love your Beach Escape!! Being ocean front with its own private deck makes it so easy to 'hang out,' and not worry about our 'stuff. You are the most pleasant 'hosts' I've ever dealt with. You both make us feel so comfortable and at home. I could do a live commercial for your wonderful 'get away.' Thank you for your great place, it is truly a treasure.
'YOU WON'T BE SORRY YOU BOOKED THIS PLACE!' 'Our experience in this home was excellent! It is well cared for & just what we expected from the website. The owners were so easy to deal with that they felt like family. I hope to know them for the rest of my life! They told me what to pack, gave me ideas of things to do and places to eat, and perfect directions. At the house there were packets with restaurant menus (personal notes were written on them as to what is good to order, etc) and points of interest. The screened in porch was a blessing the one day it rained, because we ate our meals out there and played games, but still felt outdoors and near to the ocean. We took our other breakfasts and lunches on the deck picnic table which was awesome. While we were there, we had the beach to ourselves 95% of the time. There were so many shells that we were able to be super picky about which ones we chose (bring a bucket, you'll need it). Evenings were great because even though it was dark and you couldn't see the ocean, you could hear it. You really will not be disappointed.
WE ARE ALL SAD! WE WANT TO BE BACK IN THE COTTAGE ON THE SHORE!!! WE HAD THE VACATION OF OUR LIVES, I SERIOUSLY HAVE NEVER IN MY LIFE HAD A MORE MEMORABLE TIME. THANK YOU FOR SHARING YOUR HOME. It is a different world. And I couldn't get over the sound of the ocean...constantly...I said it was like God BREATHING.
Thank you so much for the opportunity to have a vacation of a lifetime. Your place is wonderful. Everything and even more than you said. The dolphins were wonderful to watch and we saw them daily. We had perfect weather and being able to spend it so close to the beach& ocean was beyond our wildest dream.
Your house was a wonderful relaxed family oriented place to watch the dolphins play as the sun rose. Sitting out was a great way to begin and end the day, watching the ocean roll in and out. There were turtle nesting areas up and down the beach , the fish were jumping, the pelicans and all the other seabirds swooping down for a stroll along the surf. What more could anyone want!
'A Beach Escape' is just that.It enables me to leave so far behind my daily world that it ceases to exist for me, and that is the primary reason I take vacations: to escape.
Our 3rd visit to 'Beach Escape' It was a good time, as always. We enjoy your personal touch, like menu's with notations, books, games, & info about local happenings.
We love going to A Beach Escape it is like going to a home away from home. Glad to give a reference but it is a lot like giving away your favorite secret hiding place!(honeymooners-came back for anniversaries),
My husband LOVED sitting in the living room swivel chair and looking at the ocean. So restful and helps recharge all your batteries.
Wonderful place to build memories! Saw my granddaughter's face as she saw her first real sunset! A memory to be treasured! Indescribable week!
how wonderful our time was there. The kids loved every second and my little boy cried for about .5 minutes when we left.. We all feel like we've found a home away from home I feel truly blessed to have found you. God bless you and your family!
Thoroughly enjoyed your home. I was able to lose all track of time. Took pictures of daybreak & nightfall to remind me of this special place. What a perfect spot to for a girlfriends trip. Renew & relax.
Thanks for your home. The location was perfect, and the birds were great! We appreciated the unpretentiousness of your home (unlike many on the barrier islands, which was a particularly important criteria for us as nature lovers. Thinking about our next trip there already.

We have loved our home and so enjoyed the many guests who have come over the years. At first we lived full time in the main home and rented the guest apt. I watched some of our guest's children grow from tikes to teens! We have enjoyed honeymooners -who then return to show off their offspring years later--and we have made many friends with our regular repeating guests coming to see us or enjoy a birthday or anniversary. A few years ago we had to move to care for an elderly parent & be near our only grandchildren. We are now retired and rely on our home for income. We now rent the entire home in summer and can split off the overflow apt in off season to keep the price very affordable for couples/small families. We make a real effort to keep our prices much lower than homes the same size so we can enable regular folks, like us, to have a private oceanfront home experience. We really pride ourselves on making the experience special as well as affordable. We have dear friends who care for the home-cleaning and handy work, and being right there everything is cared for and done quickly if needed which gives us great peace of mine.
Our place is much more than a cookie cutter beach house. Our guests say it feels like home immediately. It is very comfortable & easy to live in, decorated in my take on Bahamas Breezy style & filled with lots of extra personal touches including the handmade gifts folks leave us. Our dear guests say the walls of our home seem to emanate all the happy memories and reunions held there by us and our guests. We miss living there year round & the wonderful sights & sound of the sea & beach. But we can count on our guests to enjoy it for us! :)
First is the unique renewing & de-stressing nature of being so close to the sea. Our home is pushed forward on the beach- ahead of our neighbors, and with the unobstructed view and closeness you feel as though the ocean is your constant companion and that the everyday world is far, far away. The sound of the waves is ever present and becomes your own rhythm.
We have one of the only screened porches around. We love it for the shade in the day, giving our grandkids and elderly family some nice shade with terrific side & front views of the beach and of the sea. At night you can sit there without bugs bothering you and watch the sea and the stars which seem so close you feel you can touch them. Sometimes particularly at full moon, it is as bright as day on the beach and you can see on the ocean clear to the horizon all lit up. Incredible!
The other unique and special part of the house is the separate guest apartment.It has a living/entertainment room, as well as two bedrooms and bath and an additional kitchen. We and our guests have loved the arrangement. It offers additional privacy if some folks want to keep their own schedule, make their own breakfast/meal or snack, want to watch something different on TV, play different games etc. It is perfect for a second family/friends or just those early to bed grandparents,or just folks like me who like to sleep till noon on vacation!!
We have a great view of the beach and have seen sea turtles laying nests and feel like the dolphins & pelicans are close enough to touch. We love having a short boardwalk and few steps and stepping right on to the beach. It makes it easy to see our grandkids playing on the beach only a few short steps away.
Lastly this is the cleanest beach I have ever been on. White soft clean sand that goes right into the water. Exceptionally clean water too with no debri, tar or stones. Nice shallows for the little tikes and nice moderate waves for the older ones to body board.
Deep sea fishing, boating, kayak/canoe rentals; Sea Turtle Hospital open to public (one of only a few in USA) (see endangered sea turtles up close/volunteer to 'sit with a nest ready to hatch/). Missile Museum (where Cape Canaveral originally started); Fishing piers, public boat ramp, Playgrounds with basketball court; Water park, Bay side beach, Bay boat tours; Fresh seafood markets; Ocean or Bay Kayaking;
Community Recreation center (summer week programs for adults & children; one day participation too--tennis, socecr, yoga, zumba, paddle surf boarding etc etc)
Art galleries/antique shops/unique beach shops, great consignment store hunting.
