Perfect vacation home

  • 5 of 5

House was very nice, just as described and in fact better than pictured. Very comfortable and roomy with all the amenities one could need. Beds comfortable and bathrooms nice and updated.

Kitchen, though not pictured and should be- is very large and well stocked with everything you could think of.

The beautiful beach is about a 3-4 block walk with a private access for guests. The onsite pools are very nice, gated neighborhood clean and well landscaped.

We enjoyed this home very much and would love to come back.

Relaxing, quiet and well stocked get away!

  • 4 of 5

Clean, VERY SHORT walk to beach, Kitchen was the best supplied kitchen EVER! We own a timeshare and although this was not part of our exchange program this kitchen honestly was the best stocked property we have EVER stayed. Plenty of dishes, but more impressed by pots, pans, prep items, which timeshares never have!

Loved the extra bars for hanging wet suits and towels in the bathrooms.

Property also had a nice grill and outside seating area for cookouts, which I noticed other homes had park-like small 12" grill fixtures....we had a nice full size grill.

Property manager was very communicative, kept us up to date regarding possible hurricane/tropical depression prior to our arrival. Property manager also personally came and assisted my technically challenged self and had a malfunctioning light fixed before noon!

We definitely would stay here again!

Couldn't have asked for a better place!

  • 5 of 5

When I walked into this house, I couldn't believe my eyes. It was perfect! I was surprised how spacious it was. The kitchen could hold 3 or 4 of us at a time and it wasn't too crowded. There was so much outside space for hanging out/eating. The walk to the beach took about 5 or 6 min but it was paved and very pleasant. Also, we kept seeing little lizards everywhere! They were so cute! I hope to stay here again. It was the more than we could have hoped for! : ) Thank you, Kathy!
