Better than expected!

Our stay was the most relaxing and enjoyable vacation that we have ever had.

As first time VRBO'ers my wife and I were a little unsure of what to expect. Until this point every trip and vacation we have made in the last few years has been at the expense of airline and hotel points utilizing various reward statuses. With platinum memberships spread across multiple chains we were very familiar with the resort experience. That is until now with all status expired and points used. Enter VRBO.

Jennifer was great to work with and provided a quick response to each and every question we had. She made the whole process very simple and easy. The rental property was very quaint and comfortable with easy access to the beach and surrounding restaurants, while also being a great value. The property was just as described. The private balcony was amazing and provided a relaxing space to enjoy a morning cup of coffee.

After this stay the Rosemary area has become our go-to vacation target. The whole feel of the area is one of comfort and relaxation. The local restaurants were amazing. Two of our favorites include La Crema and Cowgirl Kitchen (go early!). The beaches were gorgeous and not very crowded. Everything you need is within walking/biking distance. The people we met were friendly. We were only able to stay 3 nights and cannot wait to go back. I have a feeling this will become an annual tradition. I would also highly recommend driving 30A out to The Red Bar restaurant and checking out Grayton Beach. It provided a nice change of pace and an excuse to explore more of the area.

I would absolutely recommend this property to friends and family.

Beach Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Everything but the weather was absolutely perfect! Your relaxing trip truly begins before you leave home with Jennifer's assistance! She has all the answers and makes sure you know exactly where you are going and what to expect! Jennifer even sent us s message right before we left about a new beach rule of no rolling coolers or wagons on the private beach access, which was VERY helpful since we had just purchased a beach wagon for the trip! The condo is perfect for two people. The view is beautiful, even in the rain, and the balcony is a wonderful place for morning coffee or relaxing in the evening! Everything was clean and well furnished. This is a fabulous spot for a couples get away! Love the book to sign in the condo, it makes you really feel like a special guest!
