Wonderful place to relax and enjoy the view!!!

  • 5 of 5

I stayed in this beautiful beach house with 4 of my girlfriends and it was the perfect place to relax and enjoy the gulf front view... We had coffee on the beach every morning, right outside our door, and would move to the deck for lunch or cocktails at sunset... we only left the house one night of our stay to go to dinner ,, we stayed in every other night as it was just to beautiful a spot to leave... The kitchen is perfect with everything you need and the master suite is beautiful....all front windows face the gulf... just beautiful!!!!
