Our best vacation ever!
Wow! Sand Dollar was everything we wanted and more. First of all, we had been "bumped" by the big realtor in town, forced to find a new rental 3 days before our Vacation. Melanie from 5 Star came to our rescue. If you're looking for a property manager who truly has customer service in mind, go with Melanie.
The house sits on prime real estate, directly on the beach. Backyard area was very nice, with plenty of outdoor furniture and we spent evenings over the fire pit following the sunset. The two king bedrooms on 3rd floor are very large, bedding is great, yes the TV's are older, but who cares, your at the Beach! 2nd floor had two bedrooms, set up well. Main living area is wide open overlooking the Gulf. Kitchen was well stocked. The basement apartment was a surprise.....very large and spacious, with bedroom/bath/living/kitchen. It actually would work well to give multiple families some greater privacy.
The house was well stocked with beach chairs/supplies/beach toys/etc. Huge supply of both beach and bath towels. House was very clean when we arrived. Having use of the garage was a plus to keep our cars cool. Wireless Internet kept our teenagers happy.
We are well traveled, vacation 2 or 3 times a year, have rented several dozen houses across the east coast, this beats them all for location. Walking out your back door with no road or dune to cross was great! Sunsets every night from the backyard are breathtaking. It was also so refreshing to work with Melanie directly and not someone on a commission from a large realtor. The value for your dollar spent on this house is excellent. We will definitely be calling Melanie again and coming back!
