Great Stay

  • 5 of 5

The house was clean and neat when we arrived. The response time from the manager was very quick. No problems except the garage door needs a good lubrication. Nice and close to the beach. Great to have a yard for the dog. One of the best equipped kitchens I've seen in a rental. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay!

I really enjoyed the stay! It's was perfect for my family!

  • 4 of 5

The house was perfect for my family. It was very spacious. It felt like home. The only improvements would be the carpet need to be replaced the tile and landscaping needs improvement. Overall it was very quant and the neighborhood was very quiet. It was very close to the beach and other places. I would stay there again. Thanks

Not bad but not great either!

  • 3 of 5

This is definitely a spacious house and it's definitely 2 blocks or so to the beach. The problem is that the 2 block walk to the beach is not that pleasant and if you're carrying a lot of beach paraphernalia with you, the 2 blocks might as well be 2 miles. We stayed here instead of right on the beach because the house was pet friendly and it had a yard for our dog. Unfortunately, the yard had a lot of burrs and after the second one in our dog's paw, we decided not to use it. This house would probably work for a large family who needs space and privacy.

I'll break it down as follows:


-very large kitchen with plenty of dishes, pans and utensils. Very well stocked kitchen. All the kitchenware was nice and in good condition.

- Very spacious bedrooms, bathrooms and living room.

- Very cute furnishings (although the couch could use a good clean).

- Comfortable beds. Plenty of towels.

- Washer and dryer was a big plus

- Ample parking. Enough for 4 average cars.

- Close to gas station in case you need something

- Close to Richard Seltzer park and beach (better to drive)

-Close to fun activities like mini-golf, arcade, Ripley's and shopping (Walmart).

- Quiet at night.


- on the corner of a small intersection and while it wasn't that busy, there were still plenty of cars going by.

- Area is not that nice although it didn't appear unsafe. There are smaller apartments and condos across the way and they are seem run down. Area feels very disjointed. There are apartments, houses, businesses all in the general area of the house. The zoning is strange.

- The back yard has no grass or chairs or even lighting for night. It's really not a usable space even for a dog. It has dried grass/burrs and sand. Not sure why owner doesn't at least try to make it a little nicer and have outdoor lighting. This is Florida, people want to be able to sit outside.

-The master bedroom carpet really needs to be replaced. Very flat and dirty and you can feel the carpet tacks on the threshold to the room.

- There was no dressers in the rooms. At the very least, you need to put one in the master. We ended up living out of our suitcases for a week.

- The house smells like stale smoke and whatever they used to try to mask the smell. This is not the owners fault because they have a sign for no smoking. I suspect it's from people who broke the rules.

All in all, not a bad house, it might work for a large group.

This house was perfect for us! Our two dachshunds loved it and the fenced in yard was great!

  • 4 of 5

The amenities here are perfect and allow for comfort and function. It's close to the beach and other entertainment areas but quiet enough to sleep peacefully. The value is awesome and I plan on booking here again! I love being able to take our dachshunds and they were very comfortable and relaxed in the home atmosphere. The garage was nice and easily accessible. I used the washer and dryer which was a nice convenance. We would consider buying if it ever became available!! Thanks again. The only thing I would update is the check in and out time to make sure it is the same on all the homeaway correspondences. Perfect vacation home!

House was clean and cool when we arrived.

There were plenty of dishes to use !

Everything was great, and we will use again next year!

Ad says 7 min walk to beach... Takes 4-5.

Beach was clean and clear.

Garage did smell like smokers lived there before or maybe the family before us, no big deal. Thanks again for new family memories!
