Awesome Beach House!!!
My family and I stayed at Matt and Micki's new beach house this past July, hoping for some relaxation. Well, I was hoping for waves, our wives wanted to relax. We both scored big time! My brother and I got to surf 5 days out of our 7 day trip, and the ladies never looked better with their new tans. Being from South Florida, I was stoked to get 5 consecutive days of good surf. The beach break out front is great, and the jetties are a short 3 minute drive south, right by Publix. You can drive your car on the beach there. My wife and I absolutely love the house. The owners did a great job decorating the house with a super beachy feel. Matt and Micki are extremely cool. The type of people you meet for the first time and it feels like you've known them forever. Good people.
The location of the house is just like the ad describes. Its one street west of (A1A) the beach, and about 4 streets east of the River. So either direction you walk, you will hit water. Which is great for me, because I like to fish and love the beach. I even caught some flounder in the river, using live sand fleas caught from the beach. There are a couple great restaurants very close by. You could walk if you're into that, but we drove. Aunt Kate's had great fried shrimp. They have a dock with an awesome sunset view, that made for a perfect family photo opp. Also check out Capt's Restaurant. Its kinda pricey, but good. Capts is also on the river, so cool sunsets there as well. We also got to see the Fort, which is cool. Good eats at Burrito Works Taco Shop on St George Street in the Down Town area. Its a cool little Costa Rica style place with good food. Gotta try the UFO! Matt and Micki recommended a grill called 180 in Vilano Beach, which is also right by Publix, very close by. 180 has some damn good burgers! Good food at a great price. Wish we had tried it sooner, could have saved us a bundle!
In summary: Awesome brand new home, with a fresh clean feel, located in a perfect vacation spot. Owned by two cool, down to earth people, that live next door in case you need them for anything. My family and I will absolutely be back....just as soon as there is a nice category 3 storm in the Atlantic :)
Thanks Matt and Micki
