Vacation Retreat!

  • 5 of 5
My family and I have vacationed twice now at "It's a Shore Thing" and have totally enjoyed everything about our stay. The property manager had everything in perfect order for our arrival and departure, and the furnishing are absolutely beautiful (first class furnishings and accommodations)! The bedrooms (two on one side of the house with a lovely bathroom) and the master bedroom has a beautiful large bathroom on the opposite side of the house. We enjoyed relaxing on the balconies and had a nice view of the beach from the front balcony. It's an easy walk to the beach. Would definitely stay here again and recommend it highly to my friends.

Brought my entire family for a week of rest and relaxation and we got that and more!!!! Weather was wonderful even with the rain, kids totally enjoyed property and riding in the golf cart. The large porches afforded our 2 year old grandsons a wonderful place to play independently,yet under our watchful eye!!! Our hostess was unbelievalably helpful yet gave us our space. We will definitely rent this property again!!! Hope we can stand to wait until next summer!!!!

Beautiful house very poorly managed.

  • 1 of 5
Be aware that the property manager lives next door to this property and has no problem coming over to harass you at any time during your stay. Our group of women (all over 35) and our mothers (all over 60) to say the least it was not a group of 20 something party animals. However, that is how I felt we were being treated. One of the many rules (several not stated in the ad before arriving) was to not leave the door open. At one point during the weekend while trying to adjust the radio (the speakers are outside) Sandy saw the door open (the whole five minutes it was open) and made a point to run straight over and remind us of the rule to keep the door shut. When we explained that the door was not left open that our (responsible, not partier, adult) cousin was simply trying to find a radio station upstairs and has to open the door to hear it she just stood there. When no one rushed upstairs to close the door she finally walked away but not before she reminded us again that it was in the rules. This was just one of her visits and none of her visits were necessary as we were all responsible adults just there to relax. One look at our group should have told her we were not a group of young party animals and the property manager Sandy's "visits" made us all feel like we were being watched and harassed all weekend.

Beautiful house, beachy decor, great vacation atmosphere.

  • 4 of 5
The house is beautifully decorated to get anyone in the beach vacation mood. The property manager is great to work with and very helpful. The house is spacious with three bedrooms and two bathrooms. The appliances are high end. The outdoor shower and bathroom are very convenient for washing off the sand. There is a large supermarket and a gas station within a two-minutes drive.
I strongly recommend renting a golf kart/beach buggy to travel to and from the beach (it is too far of a walk in the summer heat). I also recommend you bring your own pots and pans, as the ones that are in the property are heavily scratched (unless you enjoy Teflon in your food) and are small.
The negatives to our experience have nothing to do with the property. The mosquitoes are awful, especially after rain and in the evening, which makes it near impossible to enjoy the ample deck space in the property. We tried the coils, the sprays, etc. nothing helps. Needless to say we did not get to enjoy sitting outside. That being said, there were a lot of residents enjoying the outside in the evening, so maybe we are just wimps about getting mosquito bites.
The beaches are quite ugly, with seaweed galore piled up on the sand in huge piles and lots of seaweed in the water constantly brushing against your body as you bathe. Between the decomposing seaweed smell and the smell of gas fumes from the constant flow of vehicles up and down the shore playing loud music makes it even more difficult to enjoy being on a beach. Most people like fishing off the beach, which adds the smell of bait to the already awful smells. If you are expecting clear blue waters like the ones in the Florida side of the Gulf, this is not the place for you. The water is always brown, with zero visibility. The beach is pet friendly, which may be a plus or a minus for you. It is relatively shallow, so it is good for young children.
There is only one restaurant worth while for eating out: it is Stingaree. Steve's Landing is greatly overpriced and the food is not worth what you pay for.

Wonderful Beach House!!!!

  • 5 of 5
I do not typically write reviews, but this home and stay definitely deserved it. We arrived on a Friday to stay over the weekend. The beach house was way above our expectations and Sandy the property manager was so helpful! She greeted us upon arriving and gave us the tour of the home along with answer all the questions we had. All the golf cart rentals were out of rentals and she offered to rent her cart to us (She is so nice). The walk to the beach is not bad, but not having to carry everything and waste a whole bunch of time to get there is well worth it.

This home had charcoal, toilet paper, soap, trash bags, washer board game, kids beach toys, and even some citronella candles to our surprise. Although we brought most of these items with us from experience at other beach houses. Home has wired speakers all around the top deck including downstairs which I didn't see listed on the description, but definitely a plus. It really has been well maintained and our friends that came with us were very pleased and had such a blast! Our only regret is not staying longer!

We will definitely be back next year!!! Thank you again Sandy!
