Quiet, family friendly home with a nice pool for the kids
Our family vacation included 4 adults and 3 kids ages 1,5,and 8. The home met our needs in both sleeping accommodation and comfortable semiprivate patio, back yard and pool. The great weather allowed us to open the large rear sliding doors and kitchen window and make it all one very nice living space. We really enjoyed the quiet neighborhood and relaxing around the pool.
The owners of this home are progressing with an update plan, which started with the pool. We found everything in working order and the home was clean and inviting. The rooms were large and the beds were comfy. It is very different than a condo rental, since there are so many things available, much like you would have in your own home. (Bikes, beach coolers, pool toys, beach toys, many towels, and a well furnished kitchen.) All the amenities worked fine (kitchen appliances, cable tvs, A/C, bathroom fixtures, washer and dryer, 2 refrigerators).
I was very pleased with the owner's responsiveness and help. As an example, while we were there the dishwasher quit working, and a new one was installed the day after we notified the owner. I had no difficulty in making contact or discussing anything throughout our stay.
Be advised that it is a full 10 minute walk to the beach, which wasn't bad for a stroll with the kids. Seriously laden beachgoers can drive most of this and park at the end of the street, avoiding a long haul of chairs, coolers, etc.
FYI - The very convenient Publix Supermarket located about 5 miles south is scheduled to be closed soon (after spring 2012 season) to rebuild a larger store. That will make grocery shopping (which we did a lot of) more challenging until the store reopens.
