PERFECT WEEKEND !!!!

  • 5 of 5
This Beach house is perfectly stocked to cook anything you could possibly want to cook. We had 12 people in our party and we all fit very comfortably. Everything was very clean and the beds were cozy. Shopping was close enough to be somewhat convenient yet the house was pretty much away from the traffic and crowds. We had a very relaxing enjoyable weekend.

PERFECT FAMILY GETAWAY!!!!

  • 5 of 5
If you want the perfect family getaway this is your place. This is our 2nd year coming to this fantastic beach house ( and we will be back again next year for sure, we already have our fishing poles and hooks ready). The house is always clean upon arrival. You will see the most amazing sunsets on the deck outside, as well as walking down the beach. The great thing about renting this place is when you are ready to go inside you can, you don't have to load everything up to go back to the hotel (especially if you have little ones). I would recommend this beach house to everyone. Come and stay once and you will see why!

GREAT PLACE FOR OUR FAMILY

  • 4 of 5
The house was just right, and the location is outstanding! We liked that the house was a ways down the island away from some of the most busy beaches. The neighbors would be on the beach, but we didn't see a whole lot of additional people. We loved that there were no motorized vehicles allowed on the beach in front of this house. With supervision on the beach and in the house, kids could walk back and forth as needed and be in view the entire way.

GREAT PLACE, GREAT DECK

  • 4 of 5
This is a fantastic place, especially for large groups. We comfortably slept 12 people here. It has an expansive deck with a wonderful view of the Gulf which is also great with big groups. It has an easy walk to the beach.

The house was clean and well cared for and all the appliances, TV, etc worked well. The owner/leasing agent was also easy to work with.

We would stay here again and recommend it.

A TRULY RELAXING WEEKEND AWAY!

  • 5 of 5
My friends and I LOVED this beach house. There were 11 of us total (three couples and five singles) and we each had an actual bed, which is hard to find. Two of the couples used the 2 queens, my husband and I stayed in the bunk bed room with the single lady of the group, and the four bachelors stayed in the single beds in the loft. Worked out great!

Overall, the place is exactly as described. It's a nice home with no neighbors on one side and just steps from the beach. There was enough parking for 6-8 cars really easily. There was enough sitting room inside and outside for all of us and the kitchen was well-stocked with nearly everything we needed for cooking. We were impressed with the amound of dishware available, which we put to use since we grilled on the provided charcoal bbq every day. It was just a great setup for a weekend away.

As for what's around, I would suggest bringing everything you need since the closest "real" grocery stores are about 15 miles away. But we made the trip along Seawall Blvd several times since we didn't plan out food very well. It was a nice drive, so it wasn't the end of the world. Also, there is a great putt-putt golf course around 81st street and Seawall Blvd that was fun when we went Saturday evening.

Before you go, I would suggest making sure you have enough food, toilet paper, charcoal, and lighter fluid for your stay. Don't forget spices or condiments. There are more than enough plates, silverware, and blankets at the house. They even provided a towel and face cloth for each of us as well as a washer a dryer we used when we liked.

Our only issue ever was the sound one of the toilets made when flushing (the one next to the bunk bed room), but it flushed fine. We just made a joke that it liked to scream at us when used.

If our biggest problem was a plumbing noise, I'd consider that a super successful stay. We'll definitely be back.

Thank you!
