Our Florida House
Submitted: January 15, 2013
Stayed: November 2012
We're a family of 5, with three children under 5 and are habitual vacation home renters. We've rented in many places, including Captiva, Vieques, Maui, and Hawaii. We have stayed at the Beach Escape multiple times (I've lost count but at least 4 times over 3 years.) and it is our favorite all around house. Our kids even refer to the Beach Escape as "our Florida house"! The house is fully equiped for a family, even for little ones-we stayed in the house with a 10 week old. Anita and Scott are wonderful hosts. The very few times we've called with a question or issue it was answered/resolved within that day. The house, pool, grounds and landscaping are both beautiful as well as comfortable. (And yes, it is as good, if not better than the pictures and the house is actually only 4 homes/lots from a beautiful beach, we've even walked barefoot the whole way before!) The house and pool both feel and look newly remodeled, and are always clean and well equipped. It truly has 3 baths and 4 bedrooms and feels like a much larger home due to the design and layout. We've stayed at the home with as many as 7 people (4 adults 3 children) and it did not feel cramped. The pool area is super cute and very comfortable. We love to spend the morning at the beach and the afternoon at the pool. We have family in the area, and have often hosted 10+ people at the house, typically all eventually sitting around the pool. We've referred friends to the house, and we've had other people we know who have rented it and also had a great experience. The immediate neighborhood is very quiet, as the dead end street reduces traffic. There are good restaurants in the area (we love the Sandbar and often walk down the beach for lunch/drinks) and the area is really convenient. If you are looking for an "old Florida" experience, with a modern convenient home, in a great location, with one of the best beach areas in the US, this is the house for you.
