We have been staying at the Stowaway annually for over 5yrs now and its been perfect every time. The inside is very open with new appliances and furniture. I would recommend to anyone.
Thank you for taking the time to write this review!
home away from home
Upon arrival the "Blue House" as we called it seemed to feel like a home away from home. Upon walking in and looking through the kitchen and the storage closet there was everything we could possibly need or want and even more! I have never done a rental that has a crock pot even! For my two year old there were two booster seats for the kitchen table and two pack'n play for him to use to sleep! The beds were wonderful! We were tired at night, but even without that we slept so well! All the beds were really comfortable. While there the grill ran out of gas and it was no problem, within hours we had a new tank! The walk to the beach wasn't bad at all either thanks to the help of the beach wagon that was provided too! We loved having the beach chairs and umbrella provided for us as well. This really was a home away from home for us! Thank you!
Spring Break 2018
We had a great time at this property. The kitchen was well stocked and the house had everything you would need to enjoy your stay!
Thank you for taking the time to write this review! I am so pleased that you enjoyed your stay! I am so pleased that the owner has now been able to provide the free beach set up service! I am sure that helps.
Very comfortable stay for my family and I!
Our stay was alot more than we expected. We felt very comfortable and loved that we had such close access to the beach. My family can't wait to visit Emerald Shores at Marimar Beach again!
I am so pleased that you enjoyed your stay! Thank you for all the kind words you had to say about the home! I am so glad that you felt at home! I hope you will come back again soon!!!
Bye for now,
Perfect vacation home
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.
Thank you for the lovely review! I hope you will come back again soon!!!
Relaxing, quiet and well stocked get away!
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!
I am so pleased that you enjoyed your stay! Thank you for taking the time to write this lovely review! I hope we see you again soon~
Our home sits in the gated community of Emerald Shores just a short 5 minute walk to the neighborhood's private beach cabana with a short order cafe/bar, picnic tables, and restrooms right on the beach!
