ABSOLUTELY PERFECT!

  • 5 of 5
We arrived on June 21 and stayed for one week at the beautiful home! Ann and Michael had music playing and wine waiting to greet us as we came. The house was very clean and had absolutely everything we needed! This home also included a private beach access gate which was convinent. It opened to an area of the beach that had very few people. This was a perfect stay for our week!

SEAGATE VILLA

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I just left this morning from a 2 month stay. I can't say enough great things about both the home and the property managers, Michael and Anne. We lucked into meeting Anne and Michael last year during our winter stay here and they graciously showed us some of their rentals. We were so pleasantly surprised at the great care they take in taking care of their customers / renters and the homes the manage, that we rented on the spot for our 2014 stay. When we arrived in January the home was spotless and everything we needed was present. Anne and Michael had the home open for us, music playing and wine waiting on the breakfast bar. Over the 2 months we only had a couple of minor issues that we needed help with (the kitchen ceiling light quit and we needed to get in the keyed mailbox) and both times Anne and Michael responded quickly and pleasantly. If you want a quiet, clean a and super close to the beach place to stay you certainly should call Sanddollar Rentals for available homes. Anne and Michael are more than our rental property managers, now we consider them part of our Florida extended family. We love the home so much we have an on-going booking for our desired dates annually! We can't wait to return. P.S.: If you love sea shells, this is the place to be!!

AMAZING!!!!

  • 5 of 5
We just returned from an 8 night stay in this beautiful retreat! We stayed at the other retreat last year and they are both wonderful!! These retreats are perfectly maintained! We had never booked through vrbo until last year and that's when we met Ann, she is wonderful! She is always available to answer questions and has the retreat ready and waiting for your arrival and after a long day of travel this is most appreciated! Ann is very hospitable and does everything in her power to insure you have a great time! There are no hidden fees or extra charges everything is paid up front! The retreats have everything you need! Don't take beach towels, sunscreen etc its all there! Even a beach buggy to carry everything! The kitchen is fully stocked, dishwashing detergent included!! Our family highly recommends Ann and her secret retreats!

A REAL HOLIDAY

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at Retreat 2 for a month in July/August, OMG if only we could of stayed for longer
The location of the rental is absolutely spot on, a couple of strides from the beautiful beach, good local shops, bars and restaurants very nearby and not forgetting our 'second home' the Seranata beach club.
The property itself was very roomy, extremely comfortable and spotlessly clean, the property managers Ann and Michael certainly ensured that all our needs were catered for. My 2 teenage sons were very well looked after, the large garage attached to the property was well stocked with a whole manner of sporting equipment. I called Ann one night at around 9pm asking if they knew where I could get gas for the BBQ as our bottle had run out (property has a great patio area for BBQs), Michael was around within 5 minutes with a full gas bottle. Ann and Michael were extremely helpful pointing me in the right direction for arranging many trips out with my family including fishing, baseball, American football, golf, watersports, shopping trips and top tips on where to eat out etc
We were taken to the Seranata Beach Club which is a private members only club and were instantly hooked on the place, the food is great, it has a great set up on the beach, great pools and the staff were very welcoming
The weather was great and just what we expected, we had a couple of downpours and a few night time electrical storms which were amazing. Top tip from Ann ‘keep a spare towel or 2 in the car, you may need it if you’ve been caught in a downpour or you may need it if you get that sudden urge to park up and jump in the ocean while driving along A1A’
It will be a couple of years before we will be taking a similar vacation, one thing is for sure and that is if Retreat 2 aint available then I will only be interested in one of the other properties Ann and Michael manage

FANTASTIC BEACH HOUSE

  • 5 of 5
My family and I stayed here while celebrating my parents 50th wedding anniversary. We couldn't have hoped for a better place! It was clean, inviting, comfortable and stocked with everything you could ask for. We had plenty of room for 3 young children to run and play and for the other 10+ family members visiting the area to come and hang out. Anne & Michael were very welcoming and so easy to work with from the time we inquired about the property and throughout our entire stay. We'll definitely stay here again!
