Florida South Central Gulf Coast House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 1/2 Baths, (Sleeps 7-10)

We refer to this vacation home as 'The Palms'. It is a single story home surrounded by tropical landscaping - with numerous palm trees. It is quaint, comfortable - that perfect vacation home setting.

This is a 3 bedroom / 3 bath home that was remodeled in Fall 2011. As you enter the vacation home, there is a large Dining Room area with seating for 8 guests and has a view of the swimming pool. This is located next to the Kitchen that has granite counter-tops, solid wood cabinets, stove - dishwasher - garbage disposal - microwave - double door frig, and is fully outfitted with everything you would possibly need..

The Master Bedroom is located on the rear right-side of the house, with sliding glass doors overlooking the pool area. It has a Queen Bed, dresser, etc. with its own private Bathroom. On the other side of the house is the Guest Bedroom which has a Queen Bed, dresser, etc. and shares a Bathroom with the Bunk Bedroom - which has a Twin over Full bed set-up. There is also a Queen pull-out sofa bed in the Living Room, which can actually be turned into a 4th bedroom. All of the bedrooms have TV's.

The Living Room has a large sectional leather couch and is seperate enough (it has a closet as well) to be used as another 4th bedroom area. It has a large plasma TV, a games library, a unique pull-up eating / coffee table, and access to a side outdoor patio area. There is also a separate laundry room with a full size washer and dryer. The enclosed (under air) Lanai is another seating / entertainment area that is adjacent to the pool deck. It has a large plasma TV, stereo system for the pool area, and houses the Office area.

There is a quaint front porch area with wicker furniture, a side patio / seating area - again with a wicker furniture set-up, and finally the screened in pool area, with a dining table, chairs, lounge chairs, etc. The swimming pool is heated and there is a large outdoor Hot Tub. Next to the Hot Tub area is another patio / dining area and a Sun Deck area. To the right of the pool is the new Game Room area that has a billiards / pool table, an air hockey table, a ping pong table, a foosball table, electronic darts, and more. The outdoor Kitchen is located next to the new Pool Bathroom, the pool frig, and the propane BBQ grille area. There is also a shed area that contains: bikes, fishing gear, beach chairs, coolers, pool and beach items, boogie boards, skim boards, and so forth. The entire back and side yard areas are surrounded by a 6' high wood privacy fence.

The house has central AC and heat, there are numerous ceiling fans throughout the home, and all utilities are included. We also have an office area with a laptop, printer / fax / copier machine, high-speed Internet access, wireless access, a telephone system with free local and long distance service (but not out-of-country), and we have Netflix for downloading movies, etc. The yard has tropical landscaping and the vacation home is centrally located for everything you would want to do during your stay. There are numerous restaurants, a movie theatre, a bowling alley, several large grocery stores, shopping, etc.

Great Location

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed at The Palms for our first family vacation. The house had everything we needed and was really close to restaurants and beaches! We would choose this location again if we went back!

Owner's Response: The individual who posted this review was thrilled with our property when he first arrived. Even though he was very rude, somewhat threatening and would not allow our staff to "see his women" our staff was very professional and courteous. It was after a full day and night's stay, lavishing in all of the amenities that he decided that he was "uncomfortable". To my knowledge we have never had a hot tube.

What an Awesome Honeymoon!

  • 5 of 5

The house was beautiful, well appointed and so comfortable. It felt like home! Loved the pool after a hot day at the beach, it was so relaxing. Was able to walk to shopping and very good restaurants ( Hurricane Grill was my favorite). Can't wait for a return trip for an anniversary!! Thank you so much!

Love this place!

  • 5 of 5

Stayed at the Palms with my son and his family. We just loved the house! They layout was great as there were 7 of us and we had plenty of room to spread out. House had everything we needed and then some... It was clean and well decorated. Location was great. Not far from beach and so many restaurants and shopping available. Carol was great to work with and made booking so easy. Loved it so much going back again!

Location, Amenities, Value = PERFECT vacation

  • 5 of 5

Lovely home with so much to do you won't want to leave! This is a very comfortable place, with a great layout and access to the pool, hot tub, and game room area from the den and master bedroom. Beds are very comfortable, furnishings are comfortable, a desk and computer is provided. Really, everything you think you might need on vacation is available! And if you can't find something, both Chris and Carol are extremely helpful and efficient.

The pool is simply MARVELOUS! No freezing temps from owners too stingy to keep the heat on. It's perfect. The hot tub is large with great jets and plenty of heat as well. We love this place and will be back again.

Great vacation house

  • 5 of 5

Stayed here with my wife and 15 month old daughter! Its located great not to far from the beach and all your shopping and dining within blocks.Place is great when our kid would go to sleep me and the wife would have something to do (swim,hot tub,ping pong,play pool ) instead of being stuck in a hotel room! Well worth the money and if anything goes wrong you have the property manager on call!!
