Great Vacation Experience!

We just spent a week in December at the Golden Beach House West. The house is modern, charmingly decorated, spacious and very clean. It is exactly as shown in the pictures (but nicer, as the pictures can't qute capture the openness of the great room or the incredible beach view that you have from the balcony in the upstairs master bedroom) Being it was December, the weather varied from sunny and warm enough for sitting on the deck or beach walking, to rainy, breezy and brrrr! On the colder days, we took advantage of the foozball and air hockey, and played board games on the large dining table. Pier Park is really close and has great restaurants, shopping and a huge multi-screen theatre. They also have a Starbucks!! We took advantage of the hot tub on the deck every day and enjoyed the beach view. There were seven of us: 4 adults, two teens and a "tween" so having two masters for us and for my parents worked out well. This house is a goodmulti-generational vacation spot since one of the masters is on the ground floor, so there is plenty of space and privacy. Also, plenty of parking for vehicles. This is the 5th property we have rented from VRBO, and our favorite! Ben and his crew go above and beyond to make sure everyone has a great stay. The towels are even folded into shapes with little shampoos and soaps, and there are tons of rubbermaid containers in the kitchen to hold leftovers. In fact, the kitchen is not only gorgeous, but extremely well equipped with a pantry for storing food items, and is open to the living area so the chef(s) can still visit with the other guests. We had a great time and would stay again. Thanks so much Ben and family, for sharing your home with us!
