What makes this house unique

As with any beach community, there are many places you can choose to stay. But ours is in the top tier because is is directly on the beach (not "just across the street", a "short walk to the beach", "has beach views", etc.). Our beach house is individually owned. You will not be dealing with a 9-5 corporate employee who could care less about your vacation experience. Many of our rentals are repeat customers. Our most common question from our renters is "What dates are available next year?".

This was a GREAT place, we walked in and everything was in place and SO clean!! It was myself and my two aunts who needed a getaway, and the property was great!! So close to the beach, you just walk right out and there you are. The sunset from the property deck was AMAZING!! It has an outside shower so it is easy to clean yourself off after spending time in the sand at the beach. The owners were so nice and easy to communicate with, anything we needed they got us!! I HIGHLY recommend this place to anyone for a great vacation!!!

Awsome place to stay

  • 5 of 5

We truly loved this house, right on the gulf. Perfect view of the ocean , we loved sitting on the balcony having coffee in the morning, listening to sounds of the waves, and watching the dolphins. The furniture was very comfortable, it has been changed somewhat , there is newer furniture in the living room and dining room, very, very nice. The location was convenient to Publix grocery store and restaurants. We can't wait until our next visit.

Fantastic Condo with Terrific View!

  • 5 of 5

This rental is every bit as nice as the pictures, even better! We thoroughly enjoyed the time we spent here watching beautiful nightly sunsets from the deck and patio area. The accommodations were very nice and comfortable for 5 adults vacationing together. The kitchen was very well equipped. Only a block from the trolley stop so a car isn't a necessity! The owner was very kind to offer her assistance for anything we may need. We are looking forward to staying here again very soon.

Great location, beautiful Caribbean decor, and wonderful owners make this one of our favorites of all time. We stay at the beach quite often, and this latest stay was most enjoyable. Absolutely terrific. Can't wait to get back here!
