The view is great. The sand is white and the sky is clear. What else could we ask for? Thank you for some great relaxation.

HIGH DUNE- NEEDS WORK!

  • 2 of 5
The best part of the house is the location! The beach really is just a few steps away from the house. And the area is beautiful!
The house is in desperate need of renovation. The kitchen looks like its about to fall apart. The cabinets smell musty and they were not clean inside, crumbs. The bar stools are too high for the the counter top bar area.
The floors are uneven and we found some extra "visitors" ( water bugs or roaches!) in the twin bedroom.
The bedding needs updating, had lots of bleach stains and was very unattractive because of it.
On the positive side there were enough towels to go around for everyone. The washer and dryer in the kitchen were also great. Not so great was that the washer was too big for the space under the cabinet and so it was a "catch all" for the crumbs during food preparation.
With this house I feel that the price tag was not justified, it was a let down for our family.

Owner's Response: Lucy-

We are happy that you enjoyed the location, layout and amenities of High Dune.

While the home is a “classic beach home”, we have been working with the Owners of the home in making upgrades over the last several years including replacing carpeting with hardwood floors, bathrooms completely renovated, bed covers upgraded, new televisions, new appliances in the kitchen and a new deck on the gulf side.

The kitchen cabinets are about the last item that has not been replaced in the home and we will discuss your suggestions to the owner.

We apologize that the home did not totally meet your expectations. High Dune does have regular pest control, however, with the amount of rain we had this summer, the bug population has exploded and is seeking shelter just like the humans have. Also it is regrettable that there are bleach stains on some of the new comforters – unfortunately past renters have gotten sunscreen or makeup on the fabric. We will investigate and replace as needed.

High Dune is a "Value" vacation home and, we think, for the market, is priced accordantly. Past Guests have been satisfied with the experience. We regret you do not totally feel that way, but we appreciate your input and thank you for staying with us.

GREAT PRICE AND LOCATION!

  • 5 of 5
My family stayed at this lovely home for a week and loved every minute. It is a great price for a house on the beach with minimal stairs down to the sand (only about 6). We had two 3 years olds with us as well as 3 grandparents. They all felt comfortable and it was so much easier than some of the other homes with tons of stairs down to the beach. It is very clean and had all the ammenities. We hope to stay here again next year!

DIAMOND IN THE ROUGH

  • 5 of 5
The pictures don't do this play justice! The house is very well furnished! The kitchen is amazing if you choose to cook in. The living area is perfect as are the bedrooms. While there is not a "perfect" view of the beach, the beach itself makes up for that!!! The walkway is perfect and you just feel like the beach is your's! We were just close enough for shopping and restaurants. The Donute Hole and Christianos were two of our favorites! We'd definitely consider staying here again! Thank you for thinking of your guests as you set up your house!

FUN VACATION!

  • 5 of 5
Our "ya-yas" stayed here for a week. We had a wonderful time and the house was great. We loved the easy access to the beach. We had breakfast and dinner at Stinky's Fish Camp and it was close and great food! The house was clean and well stocked in the kitchen. We had everything we needed. We would recommend this house to anyone looking for a nice place to stay on the beach (which was not at all crowded).
