*Amazing View, Clean, Spacious, Beautiful, Convenient*
Wow! The pictures definitely do not do this place justice! We had such a wonderful stay here. It was perfect for my family [me, my husband, parents, brother, & grandpa]. The bedrooms had lots of room, great closets, & plenty of extra mattresses under the beds. The kitchen was huge & had nearly all amenities we needed [we only had to buy a mixer... & out of all the cooking my mom did, that's amazing!]
The top balcony has an amazing view of the ocean - absolutely breath-taking. The middle & lower decks were so peaceful & breezy! The two rocking chairs on the lower deck were used daily! So serene! We used the top loft/open area as my brother's room. It was big enough for the couch [that has a pull out mattress] & a full-sized air up mattress! It was perfect for the 15 year old. :)
The walk to the beach was maybe 5 minutes! Not too bad at all & most of it was sidewalks. I must say, this is the nicest neighborhood we have ever stayed in... It is secluded, peaceful, great for walking & pets, close enough to everything, but far enough away that its not noisy - the perfect getaway.
Oh & the pool was fantastic. It's smaller, but rarely occupied. My mom & I made a trip to the pool every day, and we were almost always the only ones there! The padded chairs & lounges were the most comfortable we've laid in & the pool is in direct sun light for most of the entire day, but there was also a corner with some chairs under the tree to supply shade for my grandpa to sit & enjoy himself, too.
Needless to say, we would go there again in a heartbeat! It was the most perfect getaway house we've ever rented. The beaches were not nearly as crowded as the ones directly in Destin or Panama City. It was so nice. However, the drive to Destin is only maybe 5-10 minutes - & there is everything you need. Within a few blocks of the house, Santa Rosa has some great little shops too - souvenirs, clothing, coffee shops, & restaurants. There really is everything!
The only two downsides were not having internet & only having one TV, but if you're anything like my mom, you'll enjoy it! It really is nice to have a break from technology. ;) [Plus, if you need Wi-Fi, we used Miss Lucille's Gossip Parol, the coffee shop, right down the road.]
My mom also said the renters were such a joy to work with, which always makes vacation even smoother.
We cant thank you enough for our WONDERFUL, peaceful vacation. It was just the place we needed to get away & relax!
