Everything about the house was wonderful!! :) We had a party of 16 and there was more than enough room for everyone. The beach was less than a 5 minute walk and we saw everything from sea turtles, crabs, fish, jelly fish, sting rays, dolphins and a shark up close! It was awesome!! Thanks again for all your help.

The Good Life on 30 A

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed renting this house for our recent vacation. There were 13 in our party but we had plenty of space to be very comfortable. Patti was great to deal with as far as responding to our questions prior to arrival. She has thought of everything you would need to cook meals at the house. The house was also clean and nicely decorated. Having the linens provided was a big plus too! Our favorite area was the living room because of the ocean view. We would definitely consider renting this house again on our next Florida vacation.

Owner's Response: Nothing better than enjoying an ocean view with a cup of coffee in the morning or a glass of wine in the evening. Thank you for your kind words. We look forward to your return.

Awesome place to stay! Easy to get to the beach! Much closer than we thought. Lots of room for 11

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay.. Very clean place with a nice big kitchen to cook in.. So glad for the washer and dryer.. We got to clean up our sandy clothes when needed. Our party of 3 families (total 11) really liked how easy it was to get to the beach.. Just had to cross a street and go down a walkway and there it was!

We had plenty of seating room for everyone to sit and eat. The kids enjoyed the nice outdoor swimming pool. My husband liked how easy and private it was to park and get in and out. No hectic traffic like in Destin area that was a mad house! Also about 18 min to a Walmart, Ross, and many other stores. Would highly recommend this house if you have a big crowd..So much better than one of those high rises where its just a motel...

Owner's Response: So glad you brought up the Destin traffic situation. It gets worse every year. It's much easier to go into Panama City Beach for shopping than to try to make it through that traffic jam in Destin. If you can't find it on 30A, PCB is closer and has everything you could need - groceries, shopping, movies, activities for the kids. Thanks for the review. Ya'll are welcome back any time!

Perfect place for a large group!

  • 5 of 5

The home was very well appointed and had everything you could possibly need from a well stocked kitchen to the close proximity to the beach. We had 6 adults and 6 children and we all fit very comfortably. Exceeded expectations and would definitely recommend to a large group.

Beautiful Rental

  • 5 of 5

The home is perfect for multiple families or groups with several adults. The home is very clean and everything was comfortable. When we arrived I was a little apprehensive of the crosswalk to the beach but the road had hardly any traffic and it didn't take more than a few minutes to walk to the beach. Though the stairs leading to the beach over the dunes were lengthy and fairly steep, 5 flights, they were gradual and had stopping points every flight. Our toddlers handled it no problem. We chose to rent umbrellas and chairs from Dillon's beach services and it was awesome not to have to lug around a bunch of stuff. We also did a beach bonfire through 30a rentals and it was also awesome. I highly recommend both services. The beach itself was amazing and crystal clear. The only thing that wasn't perfect was the pool. We rent vacation homes with pools every year and this was a pretty small pool. During the day there wasn't much traffic at the pool but in the afternoon it was filled with people and felt like a hot tub as the day heated up. The pool wasn't bad...just not perfect. Id rather have a crowded pool than no pool. Overall the vacation was wonderful. We will definitely return.

Owner's Response: Thanks for your review and recommendations. You're right - it's much easier to rent beach chairs & umbrellas from the beach service companies (we use Dillon's too). Like most of 30A, we sit up above above the dunes and have to walk down stairs to get to the beach. We try to keep some folding beach chairs at the house for those who don't want to rent them. I need to try a bonfire on the beach next time I'm down there. Sorry the pool was disappointing - I agree that it's a bit on the smallish side, especially during peak season when all the cottages are full. Thanks again for taking the time to post a review. You and your family are welcome back any time!

Another fabulous week!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second year going to Sunset watch. Our opinion about how clean, convenient, well equipped, cozy and relaxing this home is has not changed one bit. The beach is breath taking, the weather was perfect and the accommodations were exactly what our family needed. Everything and anything that you can think of is provided. From the elegant glass cake stand to the baby gates and board games. Patti checked in with us a couple days into our trip, which just goes to show how important her guests are. You will definitely not be disappointed!
