Perfect location, close to everything, amazing beach!
Our week long vacation in Jim & MaryAnn's beach home was nothing short of amazing. There were six of us in all, 2 adults and girls 24, 21, 16, 14, and 11. We found plenty of room in the four bedroom house, all of the rooms and bathrooms were large. We stayed in the master that walks out to the deck overlooking the ocean while the 21 and 16 year old girls stayed together in the second master bedroom (sharing the king bed). The second master overlooks the ocean and has a private bath but doesn't have direct outside access. The 24 year old stayed by herself in the third bedroom (with a king bed) and the 14 & 11 year old girls stayed in the bunk room.
The house stands on pilings and there is parking under the house and a storage area and outside shower. We loved pulling up under the house to park to stay out of the sun (or rain) as we loaded and unloaded. Unloading was easier as the elevator is immediately inside the door. We just loaded all of our gear in the elevator and nobody had to carry anything up the stairs!
Walking upstairs we found the home very well furnished, immaculately clean, and it was the best stocked rental I have ever been in. There was a welcome basket on the table with some snacks and coffee, but there was also plenty of toilet paper, paper towels, laundry detergent, dishwasher detergent, soap, etc. In the kitchen most of the spices, cooking oils, etc were readily available in the cupboard and every appliance you could dream up is included.
The large deck was incredible for morning coffee or evening cocktails. The house is directly on the ocean, only a short walk to being on the beach! Because this house is only the second house down from the hotel strip it is just a short walk down the road or the beach to get to shops and restaurants. You could easily go the entire week without a car with the exception of getting to the grocery store, which is across the bridge (WalMart and Publix). There is a Starbucks in the same parking lot with WalMart.
The locking storage rooms downstairs was stocked with a few beach items like sand toys. We used this to store items we brought with us (beach umbrellas from Costco) and items we purchased at WalMart (boogie boards). The outside hot shower was great for rinsing off after a day at the beach.
My only issue the whole week was that the lighting in the bathrooms were ceiling can lights, making shaving a challenge.
All in all, 5 stars! We would definitely stay here again!
