What happens when your wildest dreams and most outrageous vacation fantasies collide? You arrive outside Cinnamon Beach Sea Gem! Quite honestly, this newly built and furnished 8-bedroom (sleeps up to 14) oceanfront home with a private heated pool & spa is a palace! <br/><br/>Poll each and every member of your family and friends for their most outlandish, most implausible request of a vacation home: Basics first: sweeping ocean views from 3 outdoor beach front balconies. <br/><br/>Improve on that? Ah-ha! A private heated pool and heated Jacuzzi spa for sipping cocktails? And also a summer kitchen for grilling. What about an outdoor shower. And oh yes, an exterior bathroom near the pool for easy access. Budding cooks and cupcake gurus might want a gourmet kitchen with more ocean views and a dining room area that seats 14. You’ll find it here!<br/><br/>Young boys (and fully grown ones) will wish for a game room with a wet bar/fridge/microwave! Sea Gem is accessible for everyone with its elevator. Young and old will wish for 2 Western balconies to enjoy sunsets.<br/><br/>A 3rd floor great room with sweeping ocean views has just the right amount of elegance, without being fussy. In fact, this entire floor is awash in light thanks to multiple sliding glass doors, so you don’t even have to step out to the magnificent balcony if you prefer to loll in air-conditioned comfort! But you must visit the balcony, if just to dine al fresco (there is seating for 12). Be sure to get a group photo around the long, lovely outdoor dining table! <br/><br/>In the 3rd floor kitchen, you can prepare gourmet meals. Eat 3 meals a day, if only to best enjoy your outside patio and balconies including the pool deck. Why not start with happy hour on the 2nd-floor veranda? Get there by stairs? Maybe -- but the elevator might be more fun.<br/><br/>One night’s sleep in one of our 3 master suites bedroom will surely count for a week’s rest anywhere else. These 3 master suites all have new king-sized beds, HDTVs and private en-suite bathrooms.<br/><br/>The 2nd floor includes a small den with a Queen sleeper sofa with the newest blow-up pillow top features, sitting area, desk, 60” HDTV, Blue Ray player, and beautiful ocean views and sliding door access. Next to the den are 2 oceanfront bedrooms. The den has a pocket door, so one family can create its own living space if you like: 2 oceanfront bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, and the den with TV & queen sleeper sofa with the newest blow-up pillow top features, all to themselves!<br/><br/>Five other guest bedrooms include queen beds, full beds and even bunk beds. Kids have a downstairs play area/bedroom with bunk beds (a single on top, a double on the bottom and trundle pull out). And there are 9 bathrooms (One is a Jack and Jill shared by bedroom 7 and 8) in all (7 are full bathrooms and 2 are halves). Each bathroom is different, finished with granite, new fixtures and other high-end touches. Guests can pick and choose their favorite.<br/><br/>On the 3rd floor is a formal dining area for 18, and a smaller breakfast bar with bar stools for informal round-the-clock feasting. On the 1st floor is a game room with a wet bar/fridge/microwave, a queen sleeper sofa, and an X-box.<br/><br/>Should you ever remember the real world, forgotten outside, wireless Internet is included. The home’s technological spoils are many and include the newest HDTVs.<br/><br/>Sea Gem Beach House is the gated community of Cinnamon Beach Resort, adjacent to the renowned Ocean Hammock Resort and Golf Course. Our resort offers 2 heated swimming pools -- one with a zero-slope entrance for easy accessibility -- plus a Jacuzzi, and a clubhouse with 2 game rooms, fitness center, and café. Walking trails weave through the beautiful grounds. There is so much to see and do here, the whole family will be entertained.<br/><br/>Sea gem is an oceanfront rental home near Disneyworld; it is only 90 minutes away!
My name is Steve Milo and I stay in Vacation Rental Homes when I travel both domestically and abroad. I own several vacation rental homes and listen carefully to our guests and their feedback and then opened my company Vacation Rental Pros in 2006! Our greatest compliment is when our guests refer our web site to their friends and relatives. AND, now Vacation Rental Pros is managing over 825 properties in Ft Myers Beach, Orlando, St Augustine Beach, Daytona Beach, Palm Coast and Ponte Vedra Beach. Our guests and their great 'word of mouth' have helped us expand to over 825+ vacation rentals. We booked over 15,000 rentals and received over 5,000 guest reviews in 2014.
Family get together of 16 people from all around the country. We fit great into the home and overall very nice. The house could use some minor cosmetic repairs and TLC (fixing broken cabinet hinges, trim work, inspect shower doors, etc.) but otherwise perfect location and beach/pool access and kids loved it. Had to make several maintenance calls throughout the stay for broken fridge, elevator, pool heater, but all minor issues and did not deter from having a great time.
Could not have been better. Not a single problem the entire trip. Perfect.
Our group of 16 vacationed at The Sea Gem and had a WONDERFUL trip!
The rocky start began when we were about an hour away from arriving and I received a call from the Rental Agency (Vacation Rental Pros) informing me that the refrigerator in the main kitchen on the 3rd floor was broken. I expressed to them that this would not work and we would definitely be needing that refrigerator. They told me it would be Thursday before it would be fixed. Well, long story short, that did NOT work for me, so I took to Facebook and aired my complaints for all the world to see. Well, lo and behold, I received another call very shortly thereafter and was told that the rental agency had contacted the oweners and I would have a new frig on Monday, which I could live with.
The owners are WONDERFUL people, not only did they get us a new frig, they helped DELIVER AND INSTALL it!! And also brought us a new griddle, steak knives and a hand mixer that was on the fritz. They genuinely cared about our vacation and it showed!
As for the house, it is magnificent. Especially that 3rd floor balcony, I am still missing sipping my morning coffee while watching the dolphins play!
The home is spacious and user friendly, especially with that elevator, it is a life saver!
The pool area and hot tub are awesome and the beach is just gorgeous and not crowded.
There was no chair and umbrella service, but it was off season in September, so don't forget to bring your own.
There are lots of activities around the area, we went to Disney one day (about 1.5 hr drive) the guys went deep sea fishing one day. There are a ton of good local restaurants nearby, I loved The Funky Pelican!
One Debbie Downer comment is that the neighbor to the right of The Sea Gem is a real grouch!! I think he may only be there on the weekends, on Sunday morning, the day after we arrived, the kids were excited and up bright and early and in the pool at 0830, so Mr. Neighbor Man calls security to drop by our place and tell us that the kids had to get out of the pool until 0900. I mean....really??
I also agree with another poster that the garbage rules are very confusing. I couldn't figure out why there was such a stink over the garbage (pardon the pun)
All in all, the SEA GEM is truly what it's name says!
I would whole-heartedly recommend it and hope to return someday!!
A lovely spacious home with fabulous view of the ocean. Customer service was very helpful. Some contradictory info (number of cars that can park in garages) and rules (who puts out the trash). Overall great house and holiday. Downsides: one oven barely working, no sound insulation between floors making a couple of the second floor bedrooms noisy from the kitchen and dining areas on the top floor, and my grandson's swimming mask disappeared on Wednesday night from the house pool area. Only thing that would keep us from coming back is the over-strict (even for an HOA) HOA rules.
We had 14 family members stay at Sea Gem for a 50th birthday celebration and it was fantastic! The location and condition for the house were both excellent! Enough space for everyone to relax and enjoy the house,pool, and beautiful beach!!
