Awesome beach house

  • 5 of 5

Great house! Very clean with lots of extras! We throughly enjoyed our stay and would highly recommend this house to anyone. Our two kids (8 and 12) loved all the extra beach toys that were available. The owners were there to answer any questions or offer any advice or help when needed. Our family agreed that staying at this house was a great decision and we had a fun and memorable vacation.

Fabulous beach cndo

  • 5 of 5

Our vacation here couldn't have been any better. This condo is exactly as described and the pictures are just what it looks like. Included is.everything that you need for a beach vacation so you don't need to take umbrellas, chairs, etc. with you. The owners are the most pleasant people and know all the best places on the island and off. We got the great tip on where to go in Mexico that wasn't to far and also safe.. They turn a good vacation into a great one.

You Get What You See and Read (AND MUCH MUCH MORE!!!!)

  • 5 of 5

Lynn and Captain Kevin are the most gracious hosts! Thank you both for sharing your beautiful home with me and my family . We had 6 people total (all adult sized) in the north unit and we had plenty of room. With 3 bathrooms (all with showers and the master with a tub and shower), 2 bedrooms and the sleeper sofa, everyone had a comfortable space. When Lynn told me all we needed to bring were our clothes and food, she was right! Everything else we could have possibly needed is provided. The kitchen is fully stocked with dishes, pots, pans, coffee maker, blender, toaster oven, microwave, etc. Lynn also has everything you need for the beach - beach chairs, beach towels, ice chests, beach toys and even bikes. I would recommend guests not over-packing their clothing, as Lynn also has a washer and dryer. Another reason we picked this property was because it is pet-friendly. The patio has a small child's gate which allowed our dog to spend time sitting outside with us and enjoying the beach view. We spent a week at this property and would have stayed longer if we could. Thank you again, Lynn and Captain Kevin! We hope to see you again soon!

Fantastic property!

  • 5 of 5

We loved this beautiful home and the Mauers were very friendly and helpful. The large balcony provides lovely ocean views. The kitchen is very modern and is well appointed. The photos do not do this home justice. Highly recommend!

This is the place to stay if are visiting SPI!!!

  • 5 of 5

This was the 3rd time we've stayed with Kevin and Lynn. We've stayed in both of their units and both are very very nice. Unfortunately the weather wasn't what we had hoped for but having a really nice place to stay still made it an enjoyable and relaxing week. Even when you're inside you can still look out and see the ocean. We spent time reading, used the large dining room table to put a puzzle together, watched DVD's and always made sure we had time to watch our Kansas City Royals!! We visited our favorite shops and restaurants and went to the outlet malls which aren't that far away. If you like being by the ocean this is the place to stay. Great access to the beach and a view of the ocean 24 hours a day. It really is a home away from home.

The most perfect place on the island.

  • 5 of 5

First and Foremost I wanna say Thank you, Lynn and Capt. Kevin for letting us stay in your humble home. Lynn & Capt.Kevin are some of the nicest and most genuine people you will ever meet.

The Property was beautiful and the view breath taking. Everthing was as descripted or better. The amenities were more than enough and the location of this property is a dream. Everything is within in reach. My favorite was the master bath, the two headed shower, to the jacuzzi tub what more better way to relax after a day exploring the island. The main attraction was the view of the beach. We would drink coffee and mimosa watching the beautiful sunrise, listenng to the sounds of the Texas gulf. Thank you, again Lynn & Capt. Kevin. We're already planning next year... See yA soon.
