OZ BY THE SEA HAS LOVELY OCEAN VIEWS FROM THE LIVING ROOM & DECK!
We call the house, Oz by the Sea. It’s beachside location and large decks make it perfect for dining al fresco. The view of the ocean and the sound of the surf from the deck and the Lanai, provide atmosphere and melody for entertaining.
If there are any little pirates, stargazers or porpoise spotters among you, they can climb up to the crow’s nest at the top of the house, facing the gulf, and have a little adventure. Sunbathers will love this area too.
The interior of our home has been nicely decorated, making you feel welcome, pampered and indulged. The living room is comfortable and cozy and even has a reading nook for the kids. This room is tastefully decorated and has a row of full length windows facing the deck and ocean, so the views are lovely!
The master bedroom has a pillow-top king size bed, and a bathroom with an over-sized shower. There is also a screened-in porch off the master bedroom, facing the gulf…great for nodding off while reading that summer novel or even for a dreamy night in the right weather. Plenty of comfortable seating for a family. I love having my morning coffee here...not to mention my evening wine.
The second bedroom has a full and a twin size bed. The third bedroom has a luxurious full sized bed.
The kitchen is fully stocked (all cooking utensils, pots and pans plus Panini press and waffle maker) for the chef in the family with all modern appliances, Corian countertops and bar seating for six.
All linens, paper towels and TP are provided. There are games and books for all ages. There is a flat screen TV and movies for the entire family—a great way to end a fun, sun-drenched day at the beach.
I have also provided oversized, quality beach towels for your use as well as oodles of beach toys. There are beach chairs and a small cooler for you to take out to the beach.
Oz by the Sea is on a quiet, dead-end road. The area is known as Palm Beach and is one of the oldest and most established on the island.
Automobiles are not allowed on the beach here, so your family is safe to frolic in the waves and build sand castles without dodging vehicles. If you are a horse lover, there is a place a few minutes away for you to rent one and go for a ride on the beach!
I think you’ll agree that all of this makes our beach home a wonderful place for your family to retreat to for their holiday in the sun. Plus, there are lovely restaurants nearby, golf, fishing, miniature golf, the seawall walkway, pedal carts that will carry a family of six, bicycle rentals, historic tours, sight-seeing boat rides, a historical air museum with classic plane rides available.
Moody Gardens (with the Aquarium Pyramid®; Rainforest Pyramid®; Discovery Museum; IMAX® 3D, 4D and Ridefilm theaters; or the Colonel Paddlewheel Boat)Schlitterbahn Waterpark Resort and the historic Strand area for dining and shopping.
Here are some comments from our guests:
'Oz by the Sea is definitely a cut above your typical beach house rental! The house has a carefully put-together feel. The furniture, lovely bedding and fully stocked kitchen are top notch. The spacious master suite, with it's screened in porch, is set away from the other bedrooms. This arrangement is perfect for the adults to enjoy some privacy and listen to the waves lap the shore. The large deck outside is perfect for al fresco meals. The beach is close enough for the children to dart to and fro from the house. Forget something? Not likely, because the house is so well stocked. If one has a craving for Fungyuns, there is a handy convenience store right up the road. I will happily return, sometime soon I hope. Oz by the Sea is a refreshingly modern house with the old-school charm of a simple beach vacation.' Heidi M., Easter Break 2009
