The Best Spot on the Beach ' Mutual Fun' in Gulf Trace
average rating of 5.0 based on 23 reviews


  • 5 of 5

What a GREAT place for a week of rest, relaxation, and beauty on the beach!!! Our group of 5 couples loved our stay at Mutual Fun! Beautiful and extremely comfortable home...spacious enough, both inside and out, for everyone to spend time together. The house provided both shaded and sunny deck areas as well as an additional screened dining area offering numerous options for enjoying the incredible views of this oceanfront property. The well-equipped kitchen (including 2 coffee pots, 2 refrigerators, and a separate under-the-counter large ice maker) with the open living room/dining room provided ample seating space and spectacular ocean views. Two king bedrooms upstairs opened to an oceanfront deck. All bathrooms in the home have been very nicely renovated. Mary was wonderful to work with and went the "extra mile" to ensure our trip met all of our expectations. Our consensus...we would have loved another week! We have found our piece of paradise for our annual spring trip at Mutual Fun!!! Thank you, Mary! :) :) :)

Pretty much perfect

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time (first of many, I hope) at Mutual Fun. Wow, what a gorgeous place! The setting is unbelievably beautiful, and the house is designed to make the most of that. It's also a remarkably livable house, well planned for a large group. In our case, that meant 11 of us, two families who have vacationed together every summer for more than three decades. The kitchen is designed and stocked by people who know how to cook (it's surprising how rarely that's the case), and the dining table is big enough to accommodate a large group. Plus, the screened porch provides yet another dining option, as well as a Wifi-friendly spot for work or Web-surfing. We loved the simplicity and quality of the furnishings (good mattresses -- yay!) and the original art throughout. When a couple of problems cropped up (an AC system that wasn't cooling properly, a blender that died in the service of one too many margaritas), the owners leapt into action and remedied the situation immediately. We could not have asked for better landlords; these folks really know what they're doing. As a result, we had a great week on the aptly named Emerald Coast. Can't wait to return!

Great house

  • 5 of 5

Great house. Great location. Had 4 adults and 5 kids - plenty of room. We would definitely come back and stay. Can't imagine a better view from a house. You get the beach view and the state park view - spectacular!!

Family Dream Vacation

  • 5 of 5

My family scattered from California to New York gathered at Mutual Fun for a family reunion. We had a fantastic stay at this very lovely home, right on the beach. The bedrooms are spacious and each room had it's own newly renovated bathroom. The kitchen was big enough to accommodate all of my sibling wannabe chefs, with every cooking tool imaginable. There was plenty of room for the whole family to sit down for dinner between the dining room and sun porch dining. We will be back!

One of the Best on the Beach!

  • 5 of 5

This home is the most amazing home with some of the most amazing owners. We just spent two and half weeks at Mutual Fun and had the most wonderful time. They recently updated the home and it is beautiful. The location is perfect with tons of beach space to run and play. The kitchen is perfect for cooking for a big group. Best week at the beach. Thank you!!!!!!

Spring Break 2013

  • 5 of 5

We took the whole family to Spring Break and shared Mutual Fun with another couple. We had 4 adults and 7 kids. It was a blast. The house has everything you could possibly need for a week long trip. Since it was Spring Break and most restaurants were booked, we mostly cook in (the kitchen is huge) and grilled out on the two grills provided. The bathrooms upstairs were recently updated and are state of the art. I would recommend this house as excellent and it is in a beautiful location. It was our on private beach for the whole week!!
