Second Time's the Charm

  • 4 of 5

Our family thoroughly enjoyed Serenity by the Sea. Some of the best amenities were the master bedroom and bath, the living dining area with beautiful views of the ocean from every window and the big kitchen with granite tops. Everything was really clean and well-maintained. The patio lounge chairs were a nice, new touch. I had some nice naps out there in the early evenings. The only reason I gave 4 stars was because we got to tour "The Big House" next door and it was twice as impressive! Blew us away, it is great for parties of 10 or more but for our smaller party, Serenity suited well. Will recommend for future stay.

Owner's Response: We are so gratified to hear of your stay at one of our lovely beach homes. Yes, Big House is quite amazing. This property consistently books first of the four beach-front homes. A six bed-room home of this caliber is not easily found on the beach as a rental. The owner is meticulous about the furnishings and maintenance of each of her homes. It is a pleasure to manage them. The bonus of the home you enjoyed, Serenity by the Sea and your tour of the Big House speaks of a great opportunity for a family reunion, wedding, or any small event in need of two beach-front homes next to each other. We would love to host you again at the beach. The fall is fabulous!

Thanksgiving by the ocean

  • 5 of 5

House was very nice. The setting is perfect, nice gulf front beach. Home is current and well appointed. Close to shopping and restaurants. We had 3 couples and each was comfortable with king beds and their own baths although one is across the hall. Very nice views of the ocean and master suite is really nice. Would come back without hesitation.

Owner's Response: We are so glad to hear your expectations were met. The owners are constantly attending their gulf-front homes to create the best experience possible here at this beautiful beach. Plan your next trip. We are getting quite a few inquiries for next year. See you soon at the beach.
