Sunnyside House Rental Photos and Description

4 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 4 Baths, (Sleeps 16), elevator, heated pools

Imagine a snow-white sand dune with swaying sea oats by Caribbean-green water on Carillon Beach, Florida. That's where 'DoodleBug' proudly sits. You'll love the spectacular sunsets over the gulf here from outdoors & indoors.

DoodleBug Cottage provides casual, luxury accommodations with a coastal flair. She is awash in light, airy well-appointed interiors with clean lines. When you reach the spacious gulf-front rooms, you will have to stop and be captivated by the emerald green ocean views. The outdoors brilliantly fuses with the indoors thanks to dual french doors and great deck space.

This beach home is very family oriented with fun murals on the walls, bright airy paint and colorful Nancy Drew paintings throughout.

There is also no home to the west of DoodleBug giving it the privacy and exclusivity you're looking for.

As of February 2012 we have upgraded to brand new pillowtop king beds & bedding, brand new furniture, brand new Sony Bravia Flatscreen Tv's & Blu Ray players in every room as well as fresh paint throughout. New Adirondack chairs for the decks and luxury chaise loungers off the master bedroom deck..

Perfect Beach House

  • 5 of 5
Doodlebug Cottage is the perfect vacation beach house. It offers 4 nice bedrooms and 4 baths. The decor is so comfortable and beachy. No major problems were encountered during our stay, only a few minor ones but the owners took care of them in a flash. The community is gated and the gate personnel could use a course in customer service and hospitality. We will certainly consider booking Doodlebug Cottage again.

Nice location...

  • 4 of 5
The location was beachfront and great. The home was nice but a bit worn and could use some TLC. Many steps to get in and out of home but there was an elevator. If you bring a dog that needs to go out a lot, keep in mind there is not much grassy area.

A (doodle)Bugs Life

  • 5 of 5
Sadly just left Doodlebug... We wanted to stay longer!! Exceeded our expectations- the balconies & living room/ master suite views were absolutely beautiful. The English country decor was very cozy & the antiqued tile added to the charm. Glad to read below the kitchen is about to be updated-- but we found it acceptable for our needs. The only other thing we could suggest in the otherwise amazing master upstairs is the mattress was kind of creaky...loudest when laying near the edges. A few doors were squeaky but we got some WD-40 & that was that :) We were so grateful that our yorkie was welcome as well. Another nice plus was access to boogie boards & portable folding chairs stored in the garage.. Also liked the privacy in the gated & secure community as we have three teen girls & always felt safe. Cannot wait to return!! Thank you Jordan & Andrea!!

Beautiful location, nice house

  • 4 of 5
Great position on the beach. House is comfortable and management is very responsive. The house does need some updating: refrigerator/freezer is old, and frost-free freezer is full of frost. Light bulbs were constantly going out; sinks are showing signs of age. Bunk bed mattresses are soft. Sheets are not crisp or new, and pillows need to be replaced. Shower heads need updating. Kitchen is very modestly equipped. But for the price, and for the location-- directly on the beach-- this is still a very nice place. Recommend.

Owner's Response: Jean, Thanks for the review! We checked and took into consideration your comments and concerns and replaced the bunk beds with pillowtop mattresses, put in some new firmer pillows and found the electrical problem and everything has been addressed this week and upgraded or repaired! The owner is also already planning a complete kitchen remodel and is getting the plans and details together for hopefully later this year. Thanks for coming down and we'd love to have you back again. We do offer repeat guest discounts and specials throughout the year and we hope to have you back down onto the sand soon! -Jordan

AMAZING!

  • 5 of 5
We went to doodlebug under unfortunate circumstances (Hurricane Isaac) and the stay was so amazing here we completely forgot about our trials and tribulations at home in New Orleans. Jordan and Andrea Shane were very pleasant to deal with and they went above and beyond to suit our needs.

I would highly suggest staying here, perfect for a fun family trip to the beautiful beaches of Florida!
