Guestbook comments from the manager

I has been a while since we stayed at this property. However our family and that of our Sister-in-Law who we say with has out grown our last Rivard property. Southern Heaven is spacious and well appointed, the pool is perfect. Being on the back of the Gulf Trace property provides lots of privacy. The walk to the beach is a couple minutes and it was a perfect week. We really enjoyed staying at Southern Heaven. Gulf Trace is a quiet and family friendly neighborhood. We will be back next year!

Southern Heaven-Gulf Trace-Private Pool-Beach 200 Yards-Sleeps 14
average rating of 4.0 based on 4 reviews

Beautiful home, great pool, very short walk to the beach, plenty of room.

  • 4 of 5

We stayed here from May 19th through May 29th. Really enjoyed the stay. Close bike ride to many places. Very short walk to the beautiful beaches of 30A.

Very quiet compared to the eastern side of 30A. It was nice to wake up and drink a cup of coffee while watching deer roam around in the front yard. I would give it 5 stars except for one complaint, dog hair was all over the house. Looked like from a yellow lab.
