Awesome Vacation Home right on the beach!

  • 5 of 5

This was a very well cared for home with plenty of room for a extended family. We had six adults and 5 kids ranging from 10 down to 3 months with plenty of activities for all. The younger kids loved the pool and the older ones the beach we rented paddle boards one day and everyone loved this activity.The kitchen had everything we needed to cook several seafood dinners.The home is close to shopping, restaurants and activities. Thank you Kate for sharing your wonderful home with us. You can't go wrong with this rental home if you want a wonderful beach retreat!

Great beach house with plenty of room & wonderful view!

  • 5 of 5

This property is amazing! Whether you are one family or multiple families there is plenty of room for everyone! The owners are awesome to work with and very nice! The pool is a bonus to this property and everyone enjoyed it very much. The house is adequately equipped with dishes, pots and pans, etc for the week long stay. The location is great - not far from restaurants and shopping. The view is amazing! I would absolutely stay here again! Thank you for a great week of vacation!

FAMILY FRIENDLY!!

  • 5 of 5

The 12 of us filled Sea Bell to capacity and no one felt crowded. The description and pictures advertised were both accurate and informative. We arrived to a spic and span fresh smelling home away from home. The kitchen was well equipped and ready for our clan. The ice maker in the pantry...what a bonus. The bath rooms were spotless. No mold or mildew at all. Robin and the cleaning crew do a fantastic job. The beds were comfortable with linens that were fresh and clean. The internet worked great. The grand kids put that to the test and gave a "thumbs up"!

The deck facing the ocean got plenty of use. Coffee at 6:00AM and Margaritas at 4:30 (it's 5 o'clock somewhere) and star watching at 10:30. What a grand place to watch the ocean and the moon. We also put the gas grill to use. Steaks, fish, fajitas, hot dogs, sausage. Good thing Kate had a full tank of propane for us. "Thanks Kate"!

Evenings found the grandkids in the pool. What a great addition to a beach vacation. Who would have thought?

If you want a great home on the beach, Sea Bell is the answer to your vacation venue.

PS: I called Kate a couple of times with a question or two and SHE answered the phone. No voice mail. A real live person, Kate. She knows how to manage her properties and keep her clients happy.

Thanks Kate for a wonderful week.

Clean and nicely decorated

  • 5 of 5

We loved our time at the sea belle. We had six adults and six kids under age 13 and never felt cramped. The decor and appliances were all up to date and nice quality. We spent most of our time at the ocean but we still used the pool daily. It was great to have both options. We had other family members rent the house that shares the pool so it never got awkward. Great place!

Great get beach get away!

  • 5 of 5

Our two families (4 adults, 3 kids) had a wonderful spring break at Sea Bell! It was a great combination of private beach feel but close enough to shops and entertainment to get out easily. The kids loved the pool and beach access, and being able to explore the beach on their own while we could still see them. The outdoor shower is great! We parents enjoyed the easy beach access, quiet and family oriented beach feel, upper deck, and set up of the house too. The house was clean and pretty well maintained... the local cleaner/ maintenance group was quick & polite to respond to a few small needs we had. We met a few neighbors who were lovely and fun to talk to.

The nearby lagoon provided a short bike ride or walking destination for easy fishing and kayaking. Grab a pole and wade into the water for a low-stress fish or rent a kayak and set off.

Our big commercial experiences were lunching at Lulu's off Rt 59 and Hang 10 just down the street. Both have sand activities and off beat fun... Hang 10 does a foam spray every hour during the day. Kids loved that and playing fooze ball tourneys. There's a kitchy mini golf course and a TCBY shop on Rt 59, which provided a few hours of fun too.

We bought local Shrimp and Mud Bugs at several seafood stores - you can't beat the flavor and freshness. We went to R&R, Billy's, and Blaylock's for seafood - all were excellent. I got the sense most of the local seafood purveyors are good and reliable. A nearby Walmart and local grocery store provided our basic food needs. The husbands were the chefs all week and found they had plenty of choice to make their impressive meals.

We got the sense that college spring breakers took their in the weeks just before we arrived, but that might be unavoidable in that location and time frame. This was very minor - some cooking materials were damaged or missing, the washer had a lot of sand in it, and the loungers near the pool had cracked seats, but these were very minor issues which were easy to fix or ignore. I'd definitely rent sea bell again, even after spring break, because the house was clean and had everything one needs to enjoy a great week away from normal life!! Thanks to the cleaning crew and Kate for helping our families create a much needed get away!!
