Great Location, Fun House

  • 4 of 5

Everything we expected from reading the reviews with the house were met, but the 1 star is missing because of the maintenance needed on the house. Walls need to be painted, living room furniture needs to be updated/replaced & the wifi needs a drastic overhaul. If a house is this big with the expectations of 8+ adults, each with a smartphone & multiple tablets, there need to be multiple WAPs &/or a faster connection. The wifi was essentially unusable & did not reach the top floor.

The bedrooms are beautiful & spacious, the layout is great & the photos match the house perfectly. The pool was fun, the house is clean, plenty of amenities in the kitchen & bedrooms...soft linens, nice towels, PLENTY of pool & beach games & the proximity to the beach & downtown Rosemary Beach was perfect.

Thank you!

The perfect house!

  • 5 of 5

This is the perfect house for our family and the second year we have booked it. My three children, their spouses and 5 grandchildren. The house is clean, well stocked with plenty of room for all. The three beach set ups are great and the gated cul-de-sac street is great for the kids riding bikes and the beach is a very short walk. The location is great within walking/biking distance to sky's beach, seacrest beach and rosemary beaches, restaurants , shops , etc. we have stayed in multiple places over the last 5- 7 years on 30a, but this house is the best location and value that we have found. We will be back next year.

Great house!!

We were there in early March and had the pool heated. It is a great location and we walked most everywhere we went .

The home is nicely furnished and we had everything we needed to cook when we wanted to.

This was our first stay in the home but plan to return each Spring!

Amazing house! Exceeded expectations!

  • 5 of 5

We just got back from our stay at As Good As It Gets and were so happy with our experience. The house was incredibly spacious which was great since there were 14 of us staying there (8 adults, 6 children). We especially loved that there were THREE king bedrooms - something we've never been able to find in all our years of renting. The layout was perfect. We had 4 families there, but never felt crowded or on top of each other. The beds were comfy, the bedding high quality, and the decor was beautiful and peaceful. The balconies were lovely (but note there is no longer just an empty lot in front of the house - there is now a brand new house blocking the view of the ocean) The pool was perfect to use for a break from the beach. Easy access to Seacrest and Rosemary by bike, Seaside by car. We had a small problem with one AC unit and were impressed with how quickly it was handled - great customer service. Our only disappointment was with the beach. Be forewarned that even though we supposedly have a private beach in front of Sandy Shores, we watched dozens of people walk right past the private beach signs with their chairs and umbrellas and they would simply set them up IN FRONT OF all of us who had paid to have chair and umbrella service. Apparently there used to be a security guard who helped run people off, but it was futile because there were so many of them. So the beach was super crowded and it was incredibly frustrating to have a family of 10 just plunk their stuff down in front of you and block your view. The other beach-goers who trespassed were annoying enough that even though we loved the house, we won't return to the area but will go back to Seaside where we've stayed in years past. Very sad, as we all agreed this was our favorite house we've ever stayed in.

Owner's Response: We appreciate you sharing your vacation experience at As Good as it Gets on Sandy Shores Ct near Rosemary Beach along scenic HW 30-A. It is a home that really works well for large groups. Sorry to hear about your experience with the Beach, it is private and this is not normally an issue. We will check into the situation. Thanks for staying with Sunburst for your beach vacation and we hope to see again soon. Steve Howard Founder and Managing Partner, Sunburst Beach Vacations

Perfect house for our family!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay at As Good As It Gets. We still love the area, but it's not the nice little hide away it was the past 5 years. We have stayed at Sandy Shore 4 times and it's the perfect spot. I love the Sunday to Sunday week. The house is beautiful and we love the private pool and the outdoor furniture is very nice. We were able to use the grill, but it's not in very good condition. We will be back!

Owner's Response: Lydia- Thanks for sharing your vacation experience at As Good as it Gets on Sandy Shores Ct in Seacrest near Rosemary Beach. The location has become a little less "sleepy" since Guests have discovered it's prime location that allows them to walk or bike to the shops and restaurants of Seacrest and Rosemary Beach. The good news it is still only one small cul-de-sac that is gated and south of (Beach side) of 30-A and it has a nice private pool. We will replace the grill, sorry that it was showing rust already, this is only it's second season but metal rusts quickly so close to the Gulf of Mexico. We appreciate you choosing...again... Sunburst Beach Vacations as you management company for your vacation. We look forward to seeing you soon! Steve Howard Sunburst Beach Vacations-Founder and General Manager

Beautiful house and great location!

  • 5 of 5

My sisters and I stayed here for our first sister trip as adults. The house has plenty of room, decorated nicely, beds were comfortable and the location was perfect! It was a very short walk to the beach and we could walk everywhere, to the store, restaurants and shopping. It was very relaxing and comfortable. Perfect for us! Thank you!
