We have 2 hammocks, plenty of lounge chairs both beachfront and poolside, a fire pit to enjoy after sunset and tropical landscaping throughout. We haven a beach wagon, a sun tent, cooler and plenty of towels. Bliss is located in a quiet residential neighborhood where the sugar sand beach is the widest on the island. A 10 minute walk south on the beach will take you to beachfront dining with live entertainment and water sport rentals. A three minute walk north will take you to a sandbar that you can fish from. The main house offers a split floor plan with two bedrooms on each side of the house (Queen and 2 twins) with connecting Jack and Jill bathrooms.

Beautiful home in the best location right on the beach

  • 5 of 5

This was the second year we have rented to escape the MN winters. It was as enchanting as we remembered and we felt at home immediately. Our 5 & 2 year old grandkids especially enjoyed the heated pool & riding the trolley. We cooked more this time and enjoyed using the grill & crock pot. Watching the sunset every night & sometimes the sunrise was spectacular. Elisabeth was the most gracious hostess, sincerely wanting to meet your needs. I would recommend this property without reservation.

Perfect Beach House Vacation

  • 5 of 5

This is a perfect vacation spot for those traveling with kids or those who enjoy having some space, peace & quiet on the beach. Very few people around. Walk out the back door and onto the beach. It doesn't get more oceanfront than this. We enjoyed the pool as well. The house is very comfortable, we didn't want for anything. Super close to Publix (grocery store). We have rented several beach homes (US, Caribbean, Central America) and Elisabeth was the most gracious, incredibly responsive and helpful owner that we have dealt with. She truly cares about your experience at her home.

This was the perfect vacation rental for our family.

  • 5 of 5

We were here the last week of June 2017 and found this vacation rental perfect for our family that included six adults, and four children ages 10 to 13. The house was spotless on arrival and everything that it was advertised to be. Elisabeth, the owner, was attentive to our needs and truly was interested that we were having a good time. We especially liked the beach tent to protect us from the beach sun in the heat of the day. How can you beat that? Well... shelling was awesome, sunsets were spectacular, the birds funnier than imaginable, and resident dolphins cruised the beach daily. My wife and I have been to many beach locations all over the east coast and Florida gulf coast and this location and rental home is TOP SHELF! We hope to return sometime for another fabulous adventure.
