Fantastic Beach House. Private, huge, and Beautifully Furnished.
If you are searching for an incredibly spacious private home that will pamper you in luxurious furnishings and location, this is the place. Everything is wonderfully laid out with marble flooring, top-of-the-line appliances, beautiful bedding, and situated on one of the finest stretches of beach in the area.
The house is divided up into three private living areas, each with it's own kitchen, bathrooms, and living areas. There is a private beachfront balcony upstairs, and a large beachfront patio area downstairs. It's the perfect place for multiple families traveling together.
The two downstairs bedrooms each have a gorgeous Queen size bed, and shares one bathroom with an oversize bath tub. Upstairs, facing the beach, the Master Suite has an enormous four post King size bed, with its own totally renovated and spacious private bathroom with large walk in shower. On the other side of the house, the fourth bedroom features another very private bedroom with a lovely King size bed and it's own bath. The fifth bedroom is setup with two new Queen beds and shares the upstairs bathrooms. There is an additional bathroom with shower on the upstairs floor. Each of the three fully equipped kitchens includes a stove, refrigerator, dishwasher, microwave, coffee-maker, and complete kitchenware. For extra sleeping capacity, there are three queen size pullout couches available.
There is a new downstairs dining table with seating capacity for everyone, so big meals are not a problem. The house also includes a complete set of bath and beach towels, all linens and blankets, and a full complement of plates and kitchenware.
Walk out the back door, and your feet are in sand. The outdoor patio area has plenty of seating, loungers, a Gas BBQ, even a fire-pit. For more space and a little quiet time, the upstairs beach front balcony is perfect for your morning coffee and the view is just breathtaking.
For entertainment, there are flat screen TV's in every bedroom and two large 50" flat screens in both the upstairs and downstairs living rooms, DVD players, free high-speed WiFi, and free long distance and local telephone service. There are beach chairs, plenty of patio furniture, and even a good selection of beach toys for your pleasure. It's fully setup for the most demanding of vacationers!
Please note, we are not able to accommodate any weddings or large events at the house.
We enjoyed the Yoda House. It was large and roomy. We had 10 people staying the week. We all enjoyed being right there on the beach- days were in the 80's. It was close to grocery stores, gas station, enjoyed John's Pass (lots of shops and eating places!) We thought the main floor could use some TLC - especially the bathroom. The stairways could use improvements but made them work! We enjoyed watching the dolphins almost every day. We all agreed we'd like to come back some day !!!! Thank You
Our family of 10 plus a friend stayed at this home. It was incredible! The place is huge, very clean and so spacious! We loved our vacation! The weather was unusually nice for this time of year as we left 30 below zero in WI. Some of the kids actually swam in the ocean and we enjoyed a wonderful time! There is ample space to have your own down time. The gulf is so close, it was beautiful! We also enjoyed watching the dolphins almost every day. Walking distance to stores was fun and relaxing. We will be back some day for sure! Thank you!
Fantastic access to a perfect beach! Lots of room for our group of 10 people plus space for entertaining. We had 20 family members over for dinner one night. The first floor bath and kitchen need updating, and the upholstered furniture on that floor needs to be replaced. We were disappointed that the second floor was only accessible via outside stairs. This was awkward because we had one elderly person and 2 small children in our group.The second floor layout is not very functional because one bedroom has no bath access without either going through another bedroom or through 2 outside doors. Backing out onto Gulf Blvd. is a bit of a challenge. In spite of the drawbacks, we enjoyed the beautiful beach and watching the sunsets from the balcony.
We had a wonderful time at the Yoda House. My son got married at the Don Cesar that weekend and our family all stayed at the beach house together. The only problem we had was parking at night.
We had a group of 5 mom/daughter pairs share this house for 4 nights while in town for a gymnastics meet. The location of this house is perfect. The house is situated on the beach for easy access (which was our main criteria when looking for a house). The view was spectacular and the beach was not too busy or touristy. The shared areas in the house and the deck were perfect for hanging out. The decor and furniture were very functional for our group and we were not lacking for anything. Everybody had their private space, but plenty of room to hang out as a group. It was very nice to have a washer and dryer. The property was clean.
Our only minor issues were the main floor was not accessible to the top floor without going outside. This was not ideal, especially since the kids were running back and forth and this house is on a busy street. Also, the guests staying in the largest bedroom did not have access to a bathroom unless they were willing to walk outside or through another guest's bedroom. These were minor issues, however, because the rest of the functionality of the house and the perfect location trumped any inconveniences.
This is our third year staying at the Yoda Beach House for our annual friends holiday gathering. This year we had four couples - each got their own private bedroom, and only the two downstairs couples had to share a bath. We love the remodel on the master bathroom upstairs. We love both beach-front porches, upstairs and down. We love the new, huge, dining room table downstairs that can seat everyone at once. Because we cook a big holiday meal, we love the multiple kitchens. The new patio furniture is a nice addition. Because we visit in December, we also love the outdoor fire pit.
I rent a lot of "by owner" vacation homes, and this one is by far my favorite. We only had 8 adults this year. 10 adults could easily have private accommodations, 14 if you have kids and such who don't mind sharing beds in a communal sleeping area.
We love that the house is on a quiet part of the beach, yet you can walk to bars and restaurants (and the Hess across the street is perfect for the late-night beer or snack run). Oh, we also love the new Mad Beach Pub in John's Pass - check it out! (Waltz Fish Shak, Screwy Louie's, and Lisa's Cafe are also favorites).
Also love the professionalism of the company. You get a contract. You can pay by credit card. They are easy to reach and check in on you.
We'll be booking our 2015 stay soon. Thank you.
