Great house in a great location

  • 4 of 5

This was a great house for our family beach vacation. It is great location. The younger kids loved the small beach on the bay in the backyard and everyone loved the quiet beach on the gulf just across the street. The balconies have beautiful views of the bay and sunsets. Our only suggestion is to include more of the "basic essentials" for the guests. For example, there was no dish detergent, no salt, pepper, etc. We even had to buy our own trash bags and paper towels. These are generally supplied in the many other rentals we have used. Otherwise, a great stay in a great house.

Very spacious even with nine of us! Great place, quiet, had everything we needed except warm weather! Lol! Still plenty of room for us to spread out and play board games or watch movies in different rooms. Very clean, no issues. Beautiful beaches. Would stay again. Thank you!

The property beat all expectations!

  • 5 of 5

This property is well-maintained and fully stocked for our family of 12. We could always find anything we wanted in the kitchen And we had more than enough towels in the bathrooms. The layout of the house was perfect for all our grandchildren and for the adults too. The openness of the kitchen and the den met our needs for playing games and just enjoying all the football games on TV. We had enough space for all of us to sit at the table and enjoy a wonderful Thanksgiving dinner. I would recommend this house to anyone who wants to enjoy the tranquility of the Beach and the comfort of home!

Very comfortable, beautiful views & had everything we needed.

  • 4 of 5

Every night after we went to bed we would start hearing tapping on the window, thumping sounds and the last night voices and a shadow of a man on the 2nd floor porch. All the houses around us were empty. The bottom floor was all locked up. If someone with a key was on that bottom floor all night it was not funny. Scared my daughter to tears. Couldn't get out fast enough the next day.

Owner's Response: Glad to know that the renter found the house was very comfortable, had beautiful views & had everything they needed. If they had called us during the day after experiencing noises against the window, we would have sent maintenance to be sure nothing was blowing against the house. If they felt there was an intruder on the property during the night, a call to the police would have addressed that. This home is located in a gated community and keys are not given out except to renters and our staff for cleaning/maintenance purposes.

Beautiful, Spacious Beach Home Perfect for Families/Groups

  • 5 of 5

Our small extended family of 11 people gathered at Villa by the Sea during the first week of August to celebrate our mother's 80th birthday. We had a wonderful time there! The house was large and comfortable with plenty of space to accommodate our group size. As you enter the house from the front door, you walk up a wide staircase to the main level into a great open space consisting of a very large kitchen, the living room and a dining table. The master bedroom on the main level was perfect for our mom. She was on oxygen and although the front stairs were a bit hard for her, she was able to move around the main level easily. The families took turns preparing meals and there was lots of room for multiple people to be in the kitchen at one time. There is a nice bar area with an icemaker so we had plenty of ice for the week. The balcony just off the living area looked out to the sound. It was a beautiful view and we enjoyed sitting out on the balcony. Unfortunately, there was not a large enough table to accommodate our group outside so we ate meals in the house. There is a gas grill on the patio below the balcony and we used it several times. If you want to grill while you are there, be sure to check the tank and if it is low, contact Navarre Beach Rentals, the property management company, so they can replace it for you. Navarre Beach Rentals provided the best customer service we have ever experienced. Unfortunately, one of the air conditioners in the home went out while we were there. It was fixed immediately, and when it went out a second time, they took care of us and put us in another home for the night. It was repaired again and the day we left, a new unit was being installed. Yes, it was an inconvenience but we loved the home and didn't want to relocate since the floor plan and space were perfect for us. We loved going to the beach! It is a very short walk from the home, across the main road. The downside is that we had lots of comforts to haul...chairs, umbrellas, coolers, toys. You can also drive to the national seashore and set up at a pavilion. It costs $15 for the week and is the most gorgeous beach. The sand is sugar white and I have never seen such blue green water at a US beach before. We also loved having a pool just across the street from the house. The kids swam there every evening. While you are in Navarre Beach you must also go to Juana's Pagodas and restaurant! We absolutely loved Villa by the Sea!
