Guestbook comments from the owner

You thought of everything I would have when it come to bringing 3 boys to the beach! My kids absolutely loved your home. My favorite memories are of my husband chasing my boys in the surf, chasing crabs with nets at dusk and building sand castles. What a glorious week! Thank you , Thank you for sharing your home with us. Till next year...

Big Blue ...we'll be back!

  • 5 of 5

This is my family's first experience at renting a beach house. Big Blue is just as beautiful and accomodating as it's advertised. Veronica is a very gracious lady and conscientous owner. Our party of 11 including my children and grandchildren had the most stress free week. We saw dolphins from the deck, grilled fresh seafood, looked for crabs at night, and just enjoyed every moment we were at Big Blue. Some of us went deep sea fishing, shopping, and visited a Civil War reenactment. Time seemed to float because we were all so relaxed! Honestly, I could have just stayed at the house the entire week and mostly did! I'd absolutely recommend Big Blue to anyone who wants a lovely home in a beautiful setting for vacation. We plan to return as a family and my grown children are also talking about returning with some of their married friends. I really think that anything less than Big Blue would be a disappointment! See you next year, Veronica!

Big Blue is awesome!

  • 5 of 5

I took my kids and grandkids for a week. The house is well maintained and has all the amenities you would expect. The location is ideal with great views of the beach and Gulf of Mexico. We even saw a couple of dolphins. Another big plus is the short walk out of the back deck to the beach. We would all go back without any hesitation. I hope you enjoy it as much as we did.

Big blue fort morgan

  • 5 of 5

We had a group of 13 females in our group from ages 4 to 40's. Big Blue was perfect for us. We had everything we needed in the house and more. We made frozen drinks for the kids, made waffles, and used the grill. All was in working order and we couldn't have asked for a better vacation. We saw daulphins almost every day. The kids found all kinds of animal life in the water. We drove across to the bay side and found all kinds of shells with crabs which we put back in the water. My only suggestion would be add mirrors to the rooms. It was hard for 13 of us to shower and be able to fix hair, makeup, etc but we made do. I would give 5 stars and I hope to come back someday. Veronica was very easy to work with and got back with me anytime I had a question. Thanks for sharing your home.

This was a great vacation experience. I hosted my children and grandchildren for the week and we all had a grand time. Big Blue was comfortable, clean, well stocked, and offered a home away from home that made us feel welcome and relaxed. There is something to do for everyone from the little kids to the big ones. We hated to leave it. Loved the fact that we were away from the crowds and traffic, yet close enough to eat, shop, and explore if we wanted. Yes, being organized before you get there with groceries and supplies will save you from shopping when you could be on the beach. Thanks Veronica, we loved it!

Lovely Decor, Peaceful Setting

  • 5 of 5

One of the things that makes Big Blue stand out is the quality of furnishings, appliances, dishes and kitchen tools. All top notch! Everything we used was in perfect working condition. We loved the bright colors of décor and furnishings that added to the festive feeling of vacation!!The house is at the end of the peninsula which is part of the reason (plus we were there off season) we basically had the beach to ourselves, a happy bonus! Stock up before you get there, grocery stores are at least half hour away. There is a quick stop meat shop and grocery very close by but prices are exorbitant. If you are planning on going out drinking be sure to designate a driver!

The house is RIGHT on the beach, step off the stairs and you are ON the beach - the covered space under the house was a perfect spot for the little ones to play in the sand and keep out of the sun. The covered patio was GREAT to sit on any time of the day or night and it provided a perfect spot to watch the water and beach. It was quite windy, again...maybe the time of year or just being by the water - but we are kiters so it was perfect for us.
