Best Rental Home Ever!!!

  • 5 of 5

Wow - this house was phenomanal in every way! Location was crazy perfect - exactly 32 steps to the beach, not to the sand dunes but to the beach itself! The home is beautiful and had every amenity we could have wished for. The beds were comfortable - no lumpy worn out mattresses like many rentals. And the bed linens and bath towels were excellent quality - made it feel like home! The kitchen is very well stocked in regard to dishes, cookware and sundry items like paper products and spices. The house was very clean and very well decorated - you could tell this was designed as a home and not for rentals and everything was well planned. The outdoor decks/patios were perfect and gave lots of options for ocean viewing, hanging out, sun bathing. And I especially enjoyed morning coffee from the patio with a view of the ocean - and then sunset from the same patio! And the stroke of genius - they have a half bath in the garage so you don’t have to drag sand into the house to use the facilities when you come up off the beach. Outside shower is perfect too - really helped keep sand out of the house and was great to rinse the salt water off when coming up off the beach. The house has garage space that is perfect for keeping your car out of the hot sun. And just a few steps away is the Kooky Coconut - yummy cubans, tacos and ice cream without driving! The whole area of IRB is great - very clean and friendly. There are great parks and restaurants within walking distance. Theres even an outdoor gym are next to the playground (connected to the Nature Preserve). This is a gem and I hope we are lucky enough to stay again! The owners are great and so easy to work with - just a truly perfect vacation home!!

Family Vacation of a Lifetime!

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely no complaints or negatives! This house was perfect for our first full family vacation. We had 6 adults and 3 kiddos and it was the perfect set-up for us. We loved being right on the Gulf and the house had all the amenities we needed. We stayed in and grilled dinner every night after watching the amazing sunsets. Everyone also loved that Kooky Coconut was a 1 minute walk from the house and we all loved their local homemade ice cream.

The house had all of the beach toys that the kids needed and we all loved that there was a bathroom in the garage so we didn't have to go up into the house if we were out on the beach.

The owners were fantastic to work with and gave us some great local information.

I 100% recommend this house to any family looking for a beach house. We will definitely be coming back!

Wonderful Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

This home could not have been more perfect for our large family. It exceeded our expectations! We enjoy cooking and the kitchen was equipped with everything we needed. The bedrooms were lovely, spacious and comfortable. The bathrooms were excellent. The view of the ocean is spectacular; only steps to the beach. We had not a single complaint!

Fantastic Home - Great Location

  • 5 of 5

The Purple Beach House at Indian Rock Beach is a perfect place for a family vacation. It has all the amenities you need for kids and the adults. Beach toys and chairs - everything you need for beach fun is here, but make sure to pack plenty of sun screen! The morning walks on the beach were great and *The sunsets are fantasic. Kookie Coconut located nearby provided for quick meals and treats. Many great family memories were made on this beach. The house is perfect. The owners were very easy to work with. Waffle iron request was fulfilled! Deep Sea Fishing nearby provided us with a delious fresh grouper dinner that we cooked on the gas grill. We will be back -

Great Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

Very nice property. everything went smoothly. It was very nice to be right on the beach. We had to move a few breakable pieces around because of the kids. My husband forgot his camera charger and the owner shipped it back to us at no charge.

Terrible Customer Service, Misleading Information and No Security Deposit Back!

  • 1 of 5

I had to contact the owner about checking in, two days before we were due to get there, and I had to research directions to the house,as none were provided.

When I got home from the trip,I received a rude email from the owner, claiming all kinds of damage to the house and that we would not be getting our security deposit. There was no outside grill (despite it being listed in the amenities) and the garage bathroom was dirty before we got there,yet somehow it was our fault. We were asked twice (once by cleaning staff member and once by owner) if we would like to leave early! It made the check out process even more stressful. There was no broom,dust pan,mop or vacuum to clean the place, yet we were accused of leaving the place filthy. Sheets were already dirty, but it was our fault. Another issues was the recyclables. It did not appear there was collection the week we were there because it fell on New Year's Day, but we were scolded for that as well. We straightened the place and made sure everything was in its place, emptied the fridge and took out garbage. Apparently we had too much garbage, and we accused of not taking it out,which we had. A family of five plus two adults generates garbage.

The house is located at a beach access point, making it very busy and not private. It was difficult because of all the cars to leave or get in the driveway. At one point,there was a beach goer sitting on our front step! This house was not kid friendly,with glass everywhere,and supposedly we damaged a fish collectible. Yet another accusation I do not understand.

We have rented homes in NC,Hawaii and Fl and never had an experience like this. We had a ridiculously long day because of traveling delays and it was very distressing to read the accusatory,demeaning email from the owner. I am fairly certain the owner did not check out the property, and was going solely on the word of the staff.

Owner's Response: It’s always unfortunate when a guest has a less than satisfactory experience at this beautiful property. In the seven years it has been on the rental market, we have only had one other incident where the house was left in a state where the c leaning charge was not sufficient to cover cleaning and normal wear and tear. We have a professional cleaning company that is charged with turning the property over as well as inspecting the condition each week. It is an unusual situation when the owner of the cleaning company is in tears when walking into the property after a guest departure. In this situation, the house was a total mess with food in the carpet, on the walls, and on the outside of the house. One toilet was full of poop and tracked on the floor by an adult- sized shoe. This was supposedly the condition the guests found it when they arrived which meant they didn’t bother to flush the toilet for a week! Although we rent to people who smoke, we ask that they do so outside on the decks or grounds. The cleaning crew found the house smelled like cigarettes and they found cigarette butts inside the cupboards. Decorating items were broken. Sheets were soiled and towels were stuffed high up in the closets. We have brooms in the garage along with a Weber gas grill and charcoal grill. We have a central vacuum system with outlets throughout the house. When this family left the property, we received a glowing email about the incredible vacation they experienced. After communicating the report from the cleaning company, where we asked to discuss this matter, we received a threatening email which stated that we were going to get a negative review on Homeaway/ VRBO … which you have just read. It is our hope that when evaluating this magnificent beach property, a prospective renter will consider the high number of repeat visitors and positive reviews of guests past.
