My wife and I first visited from Colorado in 2000, bought the SS Minnow in 2002. We fell in love with the area and moved down full time in 2003, started a real estate sales company (The Beach Group) and to this day say it is the best decision that we ever made.
Our favorite location on Scenic 30-A. Quiet street, very close to the beach, gulf views, private pool, close to everything that 30-A has to offer.
S.S. Minnow will NOT leave you stranded on a desert isle! Instead, enjoy the ambiance of a recently updated Santa Rosa Beach home with Gulf views and private pool.
House was perfect for the 5 of us. Location to beach was ideal and having our own pool to cool off in was terrific.
The only negative we found was that all three grills were not usable. The grates on all were filthy and looked as though they hadn't been cleaned in quite some time.
Was great to have an app to easily and at all times access any information concerning this rental home. The house was just as expected and we were very comfortable and at home there. The pool is great and it's a perfect 5 minute walk from the beach. The only issue we had was that we left our suitcases in the living room and left to have breakfast before we came back to grab our stuff and checkout. Unfortunately, the cleaning person was already there. We had not checked out on the app as indicated so I guess since she saw no car in the driveway, she came on in. Then of course she saw all our bags so then she knew we were not gone. She and a child were there and she indicated profusely that she had not touched our stuff. Just a little unsettling to me. She quickly disappeared upstairs. It was still an hour until the official checkout time. We promptly grabbed our stuff and left. Then we checked out on the mobile app. But other than that, it is a great place to stay.
We have stayed at the SS Minnow for two years in a row for our summer vacation. We absolutely love this place and it's perfect for our family of five. I'm sure we will continue to rent every year, if available. The house is always spotless, as is the pool. The house is beautiful and laid out well. It's close to so many great places to eat and about a one minute walk to a great ice cream stand. Super quick to walk to the beach, which is not overly crowded since there aren't any huge complexes around here. We couldn't be more pleased. Thanks again!
We stayed at the S.S. Minnow with our family including my 11 month old son, and 3 other friends. The house is very clean and within walking distance to the beach and a couple local restaurants. The pool was private and very nice as well. Nada with Dune Realty was my primary contact and she was very responsive and friendly. Check in and check out were very smooth processes. The Santa Rosa Beach area is slower paced and quieter than some of the surrounding areas but not far away from anywhere we wanted to go which we loved! I would definitely recommend this home and stay again!
Listing was accurate. Property was clean. GOOD CUSTOMER SERVICE. Yes, would recommend to friends. LOVE the LOCAL CATCH.. Great food, walking distance and reasonably priced. Ice cream and Bike shop on the corner were great. And the location to the beach plus quiet area most appealing. The overall experience was a good one. However, there were some minor things in the house such as several of the blinds had the wand to open the slants in the blinds was missing. Shower head in upstairs Room was terrible pressure as well as the spray of the head. Driveway blocked for one afternoon until midday next day---due to workers finishing the pavers. And the door would lock each time you went out. Had to always use code to reenter. VERY clean and Dune staff easy to contact and always ready to help.
Our kids loved the pool! We were so glad we paid to have it heated. We had a few cool days so heating the pool was well worth the money. The beach was just a short walk from the house. There was also a great ice cream shop just down the road.
The only thing that I have negative to say is that there could have been a larger hot water heater. We could not all get ready at the same time beause we would end up with cold showers. It also would have been nice if there were beach towels there to use.
Overall it was a wonderful house and would return in a heart beat!
Close to the 19 mile 30-A Bike Path and the beach, in the heart of Gulfview Heights.
