We had a lovely beach wedding at the house on April 29th. As soon as we saw it we knew it was perfect! The house is beautiful and the beach was the perfect backdrop. Waking up every morning to the sound of waves was so relaxing. Sunsets were a daily special event. The Steele's were very friendly and helpful. They even had a special gift basket for us. I would definitely stay again and highly recommend it to all my friends!

Real Beachfront Property, Nice terrace, good communication with owner

  • 4 of 5

Nice location as expected (beach front) the house is in good condition due the age; we strongly suggest the owners to upgrade the appliances and furniture according to the lease rate we have paid. Owner representative Kathleen is very gentle and responsive, which is a great plus when you lease a house by yourself. We will definitive return for our next beach week in this area. Sunset BBQ were priceless... Thank you Kathleen for find my watch and headphones very nice of you.

The house was so close to the beach, just a short walk.

  • 5 of 5

My 80 year old mother was with us and she had no problems at all getting to and from the beach. There were beach toys for my granddaughter and beach chairs for the adults plus a beach umbrella. We used the grill to have a steak dinner one night and rented paddle boards from the bicycle shop on 14th avenue just 2 blocks away. If you have enus(hammocks) take them. We didn't and wished we had. Downstairs would have been perfect for late afternoon relaxing and reading in the hammock. The office is big enough for an air mattress on the floor if needed. We took one of the futon mattresses and put in the office so our daughter in law had her own area instead of sharing with 3 teens! Walmart, Walgreens, publix and a wonderful ice cream parlor are close by (all within 15 minutes). I would definitely recommend this house. The owner responded promptly to all my emails before our visit and even inquired afterwards to ask if we had enjoyed our visit. The house is not luxurious but very comfortable and homey. Nicely decorated. Beds were great. We had plenty of blankets and pillows for my crew of 10. We would definitely stay here again!

Loved the Florida Sundowner Upscale Beach House!

  • 5 of 5

Loved the beach front home, the convenience of walking right out the door to the beach. Nice covered deck for watching the gorgeous sunsets. Was thrilled to meet the owner, Kathleen. The beach house was beautiful, clean, and had everything we needed for a wonderful week of fun with family. We had absolutely no problems with the house. Not only is it directly on the beach, it's location to restaurants and activities makes it a great family rental. Great, great week.

Family Friendly Beach House

  • 5 of 5

Loved the Sundowner Beach House, short path to Gulf, beautiful sunsets, and close to many other areas to explore.

Loved the convenience of having the space under the house to store all our beach gear, fun place for the grandchildren to play, a plus having a grill, and picnic tables for eating outside.

There was plenty of room for the seven of us, grandparents, parents and 3 children (ages

5, 9, and 12). Favorite inside activity was playing air hockey on the table in their bedroom.

Had some interesting beach experiences just in back of the house, close encounter with a

Sea Hare swimming near us (something we had not seen in the 20 years of living in Fl.).

Also several guys set up their fishing rods along the shore, another one would take 2 lines at a time way out in the water in a kayak. One evening, in the dark, something very large took the bait, and we watched them struggle to pull it in. Imagine the excitement to see a ginormous Goliath Grouper, weighing several hundred pounds wrestling with them on the beach, (another first for all of us).

On arrival, owner, Kathleen, had welcomed us with a vase of fresh flowers that lasted all week, and a sand bucket filled with goodies. Thanks for everything, did I mention we loved Sundowner? Pat H.
