Guestbook comments from the manager

Thank you for a great vacation. We LOVED the pool and the location of the house. The view of the moon coming up over the lake was awesome. We will come back to this house again!

Thanks again,

Beautiful beach town / house

  • 4 of 5

This rental is in a perfect location. The gulf is just a few minute walk, the pool is awesome, and the lake is great for fishing / water activities. Santa Rosa Beach has plenty to do, not busy, very laid back. Ice cream, coffee, restaurants, beach shopping. The house has plenty of room, kitchen is roomy to cook, has all the essentials, bedrooms are nice ,the two decks are perfect for relaxing and taking all the views in.

Couldn't be any happier!!! Such an amazing family vaca

  • 5 of 5

This beach house was everything we expected and more! We spent majority of our time at the house hanging at the pool/hot tub. Cooked on the grill every night. Kitchen fully stocked with everything we needed to cook. We enjoyed having the keurig coffee maker. The wrap around deck was perfect for our family. Views were amazing. The kids spent a lot of time fishing in the oyster lake beside the house. Never ending fun for the entire family. We cannot wait to go back and hope to move to the area in the near future. Santa Rosa is a chill area, or you can take a quick 30 min drive to get to destin with lots of shopping and more activities. The beaches were very clean!! Everyone in the area was super friendly and nice to talk to. The home owners were very accommodating and helpful! Overall very pleased with our vacation experience.

The stay was very good.

  • 4 of 5

Had an issue with the door lock, e-mailed Brian and he called me back and was able to solve the issue. The house was nice, the only thing I would recommend is that when the cleaning crew clean that they clean the silverware and utensil doors and the cabinet where the pots and pans are. There was dried food and crumbs. We cleaned them and ran everything through the dish washer.

Great Location!

  • 4 of 5

The home is in a great location. The views from the front and the side decks are amazing! The pool and spa are as nice as they look in the pictures. We swam every day and absolutely loved the pool. Remember the owner charges extra to heat the pool. The beach access is just a short walk and this section of beach was not crowed during our spring visit. Overall the house was nice, although it could have been a little cleaner. The home isn’t fancy and it’s more of a “club house” style home, which worked well for my family. If you’re looking for a high end home this is not for you. The bathroom and bedrooms were clean the kitchen could of used a deep cleaning. Overall it was nothing to complain about and we cleaned it up before use. The Weber BBQ on the deck was a nice touch, as we love to cookout! If you’re a cook you may want to bring your own cookware, what’s there is “bare bones”. Overall our visit was GREAT and I would rent and recommend this property to friends and family.

great location

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I spent the month of February 2017 at Brian's property. The location is great. Right across the street from the beach (very short walk to public access), on Oyster Lake and right in-between Gulf Place and the yummy Donut Hole. We had coffee on the side deck overlooking Oyster Lake watching birds in the morning and cocktails on the front deck overlooking the gulf and sunset in the evening.

The saltwater pool is lovely and the attached spa, with on demand heating and bubbles, is very relaxing. The house is a little dated but the open layout, updated kitchen with granite counters/stainless appliances and master bedroom separate from the three guest bedrooms makes the house very comfortable and livable. Our grandchildren visited one weekend and there was a hodgepodge of pool and sand toys in the garage left by former renters to amuse them.

We had a few small issues settling in but they were resolved immediately by Brian. We love to grill and the older inconsistent

gas grill was replaced with a new Weber gas grill within a few days.

We enjoyed our stay and would definitely recommend the property! Brian was always available and easy to work with.

Highly recommend

  • 5 of 5

Our family stayed here for 21 days and it was excellent. The homes location, and amenities are just a couple reasons why we would gladly rent from Brian and Meagan again. The home is located within a couple minute walk of the beach access so we didn't have to load a vehicle every time we wanted to hit the beach, very convenient. And when we weren't at the beach the pool at the house is where you could find us. The pool was awesome, everything from the layout of the pool, cleanliness and having a fence around it so our little kids couldn't go in with out us made it perfect for our family. This was our first time vacationing in the south Fort Walton beach area and already can't wait to go back. Just a short drive was shopping at a huge outlet mall, and any food you could want. We didn't have a poor experience anywhere. From The Red Bar to AJ's in Destin all along the coast people were friendly and accommodating. In conclusion I would highly recommend planning your next vacation to Santa Rosa Beach and would suggest renting this house from Forehand Rentals if you do. P.S. if you're a beer aficionado or just a newbie to the craft beer world check out The Growler Garage just a mile away.
