Guestbook comments from the owner

This beach house just changed hands. The review history gets wiped cleaned for the new owners to forge their own reputation. We spent our first stay here over Easter and loved the house, the beach, and the weather. We have four children ages ten to fourteen. The house is solidly built, has a lot of privacy and can be very quiet--even with four children within its walls!

The Mexican tile feels great on bare feet; the wind-swept decks grant refuge from the sun and romance by moonlight.

Simply Perfect

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at "Changes in Attitude" over our kids' spring break. Excellent find-- and our attitude DID change from frantic West Coast family life to true Southern relaxed lifestyle

We received a most personal and warm welcome from the owners who happened to have stayed there the week before ours. But even without their gracious tour, the logistics of the house are pretty straightforward and self explanatory.

The location is outstanding. At first we had looked for a property right on the beach. Good thing we went with our intuition when we saw this place. The beach is just a couple minutes' walk away. And while the home provides plenty of privacy, we also actually appreciated it's location in t he midst of a a community, giving it almost a village feeling and the opportunity for the kids and adults to socialize and meet people, should they so desire.

The home is simply perfect -- anything you could want is there and it has great charm, lots of wood throughout. The interior is very specious, affording everyone plenty of privacy. Conversely, the open floor plan of the top level creates the perfect single large social area for cooking, eating, watching TV, lounging, playing board games, hanging out on the deck and simply watching the ocean or the stars. 3 nice wet options: the ocean, the refreshing pool protected against insects, or the perfect hot tub.

The gated community is great -- very quiet, lots of interesting homes to look at as we hiked and biked along the beach as well as little dead end-roads connected by walkways -- safe for kids, no busy thoroughfares.

The beach is perfect: fine clean white sand with TONS of perfectly intact shells, a paradise for beach combing for our kids and the adults alike. Great fishing. And we managed to have a blast boogie boarding in April! We are from California and this is unheard off up and down our coast without a wetsuit

All in all this was the perfect combination of plenty of activities along with intense relaxation. The perfect weather helped. The price seemed right and very favorable compared to other properties we had considered.

Downsides: A real grocery store is about 20+ minutes away by car. And there aren't many attractions (to our liking) nearby. But that was the whole point of the vacation: to relax and enjoy the beach and the rental.

Great Vacation Home

  • 4 of 5

Had a great time. Beautiful classic Florida beach home, solidly built, and with great views of the beach. New owner who is very accomodating and interested to receive feedback and make improvements. Four bedrooms with queen sized beds only. Our only concern was that there needed to be one room with twin or bunk beds to accomodate smaller children. Kids don't always stay up as late as the adults and having them sleep on the couches in the main room didn't work out so well. Other than that there were no other issues. Highly recommended.
