As advertised, which is a good thing!
House was perfect. It looked just like the photos. The family really had a great time.
Thank you so much for your feedback! We're thrilled to hear how much you enjoyed your recent stay at "At Redfish" by Ocean Reef Resorts. We hope your travels bring you back this way again soon!
Property is spacious and very accommodating for large groups!
Everything worked for our group of 13. Plenty of group space as well as alone time spaces. Quiet beach access is an easy walk. Very family oriented.
Thank you so much for staying with us! We are pleased to hear that you enjoyed the house and the location. We look forward to accommodating you again in the future.
Great for large groups or multiple families
We spent Thanksgiving week at this house with 6 adults and 3 young children and it was a wonderful experience. The 3 levels allowed each family to have their own space yet the living/dining area on the 3rd floor was large enough for all of us to eat and engage in activities together. If you have a toddler, keep in mind that the staircases are open.
The pool was a hit with the grandkids however it was not working when we arrived. It was determined the heater needed to be replaced so we lost about 3 days of swim time, but the Ocean Reef folks were very gracious about making it right financially. The pool is a nice size, with easy access for older folks with a nice spa area. Bring your own pool toys; there were a couple boogie boards and beach chairs, but no noodles or such.
The house is located in a nice residential area just a 5 min walk to the beach. Five cars can easily park off street. Only 5 min to the Publix and 10 to the Walmart.
The beds were comfortable with nice linens (tho we had "crumbs" in one upon arrival). Good water pressure in the showers with ample and nice towels. Elevator worked great.
The kitchen had a nice convection oven and gas cooktop. The refrigerator was large with chilled water and an icemaker with an additional ice maker under-counter.
If you plan to eat out most of the time this kitchen is well appointed. Lots of plates, silverware, cereal bowls and large matched set of wine glasses. If you plan to cook a lot while you are there (we did, including Thanksgiving dinner) you should know that like all rentals it lacks a good, non-stick fry pan, tho there were adequate other size pots and pans, bakeware and colanders. No juice glasses and only a small # of mismatched water glasses. Salt and pepper shakers were the only condiments. Sooo, bring your own coffee filters, dish soap, dish scrubbers, pot holders and dish towels...they provide a couple, but not enough if you cook a lot. They did provide paper towels, trash bags, DW soap and ample TP.
We would definitely choose this rental again if coming the this area with a large group. It is uniquely suited for multiple families, is well maintained, and the rental agency was responsive during business hours. And it was a great off-season value!

Tons of space and a short walk to the beach
Our party of 13 (and one infant) had more than enough space in this beautiful home. The location is supreme! All the greatest restaurants on 30a are within a 15 minute drive, and the walk to the beach was very doable even on the hottest days in Late July. I would recommend bring a cart to help take all of your chairs and toys to the beach. Purhaps the greatest and most surprising aspect of this vacation was the emptiness of the beach! I am not sure if schools were back in session, but we never had anyone closer than 50 yards on either side of us at the beach. This allowed us to spread out, play games, and truly have a stress free week. I think this deep part of the Blue Mountain Beach is very residential with very few rental homes so it was nice to have that kind of privacy on a public beach access. On the negative side the description of the home greatly over states the ice machines. We were expecting three ice machines but the rooftop ice machine was missing, the basement ice machine was broken and very loud (we called maintenance but they basically said it needed to be replaced which didn't happen while we were there), and the kitchen ice machine had very low output so it was good for drinks once a day. So we managed but I wouldn't rely on the convenience of those ice machines. Also, the pool was nice but due the heavily wooded area tended to have lots of bugs in it. That didn't stop us from enjoying it anyway. This house was a hit overall and just added to the excitement and fun of the week. You should rent this house if you have a big group!
Dear Guest, thanks for staying with us. We will be sure to check out the ice machines. Please come back and see us!
Loved the location. .1 mile to beach. Beautiful on the inside with a lot of space. Huge deck on top
We had 3 families for total of 13 people. Plenty of room. Bedrooms are spacious. There wer 2 sets of washer and dryers. There is an elevator. There is a pool table on bottom floor. Several balconies. The top floor deck is HUGE. Pics do not do it justice. There is a fridge, grill and sink up there also with part of the deck covered with furniture. The view is perfect for picture taking. The walk to the beach and to get ice crew was very short. The house has 2 grills on 3rd and 4th floor. Pool was little small but our kids loved it especially when double red flags were up and couldn't get in ocean. Had everything you would need to cook or grill out. Kitchen and living area were larger than the pics make them look. The fridges on 3 of the 4 floors came in handy also. Overall we loved it and would recommend
Thank you for your feedback! We are thrilled to hear how much you enjoyed your recent stay at "At Redfish" by Ocean Reef Resorts. We hope your travels bring you back again soon!
good customer service, nice location
Our week's stay at "At Redfish" began a little on the bumpy side, but after speaking with David in the Ocean Reef office on Monday, most issues were dealt with speedily. The home is about 2 blocks from the beach. It has a lovely view of Redfish lake out back. The house itself could use a little TLC to update it (i.e. paint, refinishing, new dishwasher), but it was roomy and comfortable for our party of 9 adults and 3 children under 3.
Thank you so much for your feedback on the home. We have sent these recommendations on to the homeowner for further review. I appreciate your patience and understanding with the issues you experienced and are glad we were able to get things addressed one way or another. We really enjoyed having you as a guest and hope to see you and your family again soon!
