Absolutely Beautiful !!

WOW - What an incredible house. Words can't describe how beautiful a location this is & the pictures don't do it justice. In fact, we never even went out to eat, because I didn't want to leave the view from the dining room or decks-there were a couple of days that we didn't even get in the car at all! While we saw other families with their wagons filled with chairs, umbrellas&coolers carting their stuff to &from the beach-we simply stepped off the carport & we were right on the beach! Thanks for the use of the chairs&umbrella.
Several mornings(about 9) & afternoons(about 5) we saw dolphins playing in the water right from the deck (I'd suggest bringing your binoculars for an even better view). Speaking of view-every room has an incredible view of the beach & from the kichen, it looks like you are in the middle of the water. The sunrises & sunsets are gorgeous. Also, there is a whole house (&deck) sound system (took a bit of figuring out-we finally got it) & a large TV & surround sound for our 'movie nights'
It's a great location, not only right on the beach, but less than 2 miles to Publix, CVS &WinnDixie to the east, & an easy & safe bike ride to the west- down side streets & paths to Rosemary beach area (cute shops & parkways in the central town area)-thanks Chris for letting us use the bikes-one thing about the bikes-they are mens adult sized-I'm short, so even the adult bike was a bit hard for me to ride because of the center bar. We rented a youth bike which worked out good for the kids (even teens)
The beds were so comfortable, the linens & towels were high quality, & the kitchen was well stocked with all of the dishes, untencils & equipment that you would need - but the grill was even better. And the house was incredibly clean & well maintained. Usually, I have to clean or wipe down something or wash dishes before we use them-not here-everything was spotless.
We had fun walking on the beach looking for shells, playing in the sand, swimming in the gulf, flying a kite, throwing baseballs & footballs & frisbies, & at night we took flashlights & walked the beach catching crabs in nets-great fun-don't forget glowsticks & flashlights. The kids enjoyed the pool-it's bigger than appears in pics-about 7X16 and 4 ft deep.
Thank you Chris for being so accommodating to our family (I'm glad we got a chance to meet you) & for sharing your house with us.
I think this was our best vacation ever-I didn't want to leave-can't wait to go back
