Summer time….anytime…sit back and unwind. Relax and enjoy the spacious and functional use of this fantastic beach rental, Always Summer! With 7 bedrooms and 6 baths, this home can accommodate a family or two nicely, with multiple gathering areas on two floors as well as over 2000 square feet of deck surrounding the large 34’ x 17’ pool.
The first floor offers four bedrooms, one a Queen Suite with private bath; two bedrooms (one Queen and one with two Twins) that share a Jack & Jill bath, and one Queen with access to a hall bath. The flowing layout of this home allows for easy mobility in and out of the home, with an adjoining card table room and a game room with a pool table. There is a full refrigerator, a mini fridge, and a wine cooler, which makes it very convenient for additional food and beverage storage, as well as a great way to enjoy your favorite wines from home. All bedrooms offer a flat screen TV, and are beautifully decorated with new linens and beachy bright colors.
The upper second floor is bright and open with lots of windows to bring in the views of the bay. Comfortable seating from the large leather sectional allows for great movie time on the large flat screen TV. You can play a game of cards or have a quiet cup of coffee at the corner table, just tucked away enough to be out of the main living area.
Enjoy preparing and sharing meals in the large kitchen, boasting all stainless steel appliances, glistening granite counters, plenty of cookware and drinkware, and dining tables to accommodate everyone. The three bedrooms on the upper level include a King Master Suite with private bath, a Queen bedroom and a bunk room perfect for the younger guests. One bedroom has slider door access to the screened porch, which is a great morning spot for early risers.
The decks are incredible on both levels of the home, offering easy access in and out of the first floor via two bedrooms as well as access doors from the game room and card room. For those that enjoy being outside but not always in the sun, these decks offer great shady places to relax and enjoy your time. The upper level decks have awesome views of the bay, both the canal in the back yard and the more expansive open Back Bay view across the street. The sunsets are forever entertaining. The screened porch will be a favorite spot during your stay, with a table and chairs as well as additional chairs for relaxing. Being completely screened in on all sides and beneath, this is a truly peaceful way to spend an evening “out in the fresh air” without the disturbance of any unwanted pests. The picturesque and nicely landscaped yard includes patio tables and chairs, umbrellas, and over 2000 square feet of deck space that surrounds the large inground pool. The festive pool cabana has a fridge and microwave in it, counter top area for snacking, and a grill and picnic table nearby for grilling out with ease. In addition, you can enjoy a game of shuffleboard and corn hole! If you bring your canoe or kayak, you can launch right from the small dock, and try crabbing or fishing….always an easy way to catch a smile at least!
There is ample parking for up to 8 cars, and the beach access is just a short walk away. Always Summer is a perfect vacation rental if you are looking for a spacious and comfortable home for your beach vacation!

We stayed at this rental the week of August 27th. Overall we had a very nice time. The open floor plan was great for our big family and there were plenty of places to hang out and not feel crowded. The kids loved the pool table, swimming pool and easy access to the beach. The decks were great for playing games or just sitting and talking. Easy access for the kayaks as well on the small dock on the bay. We had the best of both worlds.
The issues we had were with cleanliness. All the bedrooms had major dust bunnies under the beds. My daughter found a sock that was probably under the bed for months and also one of those pads you put on the bed for bed-wetters! The TV mount in one of the bedrooms was broken so unless you leaned the TV again the dresser it would flop over. Our room has several weird stains on the walls.It looked like someone spilled something and never cleaned it up. One bathroom and dresser had hair on it.
I hope Sandbridge addresses these things and takes an active role in making sure the properties are up to par. We pay a lot of money to stay here and the place should be cleaner.
also - none of the outdoor tables had any umbrellas for shade.
One other note. Be sure to bring bug spray and repellent. Being on the bay brings in a lot of bugs! We were all bitten up by the end of our week!
The house was the right size for our family of 11 (6 adults), with baths for all 7 bedrooms (1 Jack and Jill shared). Bedrooms were small, but functional. Beds were comfortable. It could have been cleaner when we arrived and the property has apparently had a long, rough beach rental life. Grill was hard to light and the garage was locked off. Owners had plenty of kitchen utensils and pots/pans available, but nothing else was there in the kitchen in the way of salt/pepper/spices and not even any filters for 2 coffee pots. The pool was enjoyable and the decks were old and worn. We had to pound down a couple deck nails after my grandson cut a toe on a raised nail on one of the steps. The large dining area was nice for our family as we could all eat together.
