Great Place to Spend a Week With Friends

  • 5 of 5

A very comfortable place for 2 couples and kids to spend a week at the beach. We were there for spring break which is early in the season for this location but we had a great time. The 3rd floor game room (far enough away from the living not to disturb) kept the kids occupied when we weren't at the beach basically by ourselves. Most days we had a mile in each direction with no one but us. The sand is very nice and the water was warm enough for the kids even at this time of year (I thought it was pretty chilly myself).

The two master suites make sure that neither couple feels cheated by the accommodations as they both have great bathrooms and nice beds.

The golf cart took a little work but it did work for the week overall after getting it charging.

It was basically a 200 yard walk to the beach from the house and the golf cart cut that in half. All the houses here have a setback. The community that this house is in is very nice which made it better.

We will definitely consider staying here again.

Owner's Response: Jim, I'm so happy you enjoyed your stay at the Purple Parrot. Sorry that the golf cart gave you an issue. We have since removed the golf cart from this rental. Unfortunately, the salt air and sand are very hard on the carts. We love that this home has the 2 master suites for the adults and the game room for the kids. It is nice to be able to spread out while you are on vacation. Please let us know when you would like to return to the Purple Parrot Thank you again for staying with us Nancy

Very spacious! Nice gated community. Private beach was amazing.

  • 4 of 5

The house had more than enough room for our two families. It could be maintained better though. Two of the couches were ripped, a dinning room chair was missing and another was broken. It was difficult to cook properly with skillets and pots when everything stuck to the bottom. The shower in the Jack and Jill bath needs updating. We really enjoyed our vacation. It was nice having a private beach. Since the playground is no longer there and the golf cart no longer available I would recommend taking those off the listing. On our second day in the house I emailed to advise of all the issues we had just to document damage that was there before we arrived. A maintenance man did come to fix the few things he could so we appreciated that.

Quiet location and short walk to the beach. The family thoroughly enjoyed our stay and we'll most definitely return!
