A DREAM beach vacation!
We had a GREAT stay over the New Year’s holiday last year. Like a previous reviewer, I was hesitant to leave a review because I thought we may want to keep this place a secret :). The BEST thing about this home is how very close you are to the beach and the wonderful gulf views – it is as close to being a gulf front home as you can get without the gulf front prices. The walk to the beach is not more than 1 minute and there is very little traffic– so easy to go back and forth throughout the day. Both master bedrooms are very large – can easily fit a couple of kids on an air mattress along with the parents. The house is very well equipped – we didn’t even need to bring any beach chairs or umbrellas – everything we needed was already there for us to use in the garage. Kids loved biking to Seagrove/Seaside and having a kayak whenever we wanted was very nice too. The pool was great – very private with the lake in back. We will definitely be booking for next year! Thanks so much for sharing your home! It’s perfect!
This house was amazing! Everything was lovely and in wonderful condition. Upon arrival I was a little disappointed about so many properties surrounding the house-was I wrong! Once inside, this place was totally private. Never did I feel that other people were on top of us and the pool is so secluded with a private view of the lake. The bedrooms and baths are spacious. We had our children and young grandchildren and there was plenty of room and privacy for all. We took portacribs and high chairs and there was ample room for all. The balconies are totally enclosed with gates at the top of each staircase. Everything that you could ever need is included. We were so pleased with all of the beach equipment-all we needed were our towels and sunscreen. The beach was never too crowded even though we were there in July. The beach is just across a small road with little traffic. We had four cars and parking was never a problem.
We walked, ran or biked everyday. Bikes were furnished for all ages. It is a short distance to the main road and then the walk/bike paths go for miles in both directions. Our only regret was that we did not have time to take the kayak out.
The entire house is stone tile. This is great for a house on the beach. A little worrisome with young toddlers but we never had any problems.
The owners seem to really care about their property. My questions were answered immediately. This was a terrific find for us. We could not have had a better house to bring our family together in. It helped make our vacation a week to remember. Would definately rent this house again.
Vacation Home with Everything!!!
This home was perfect for our family vacation. Plenty of room and the updates were so nice. The pictures don’t do the place justice, the two upstairs bedrooms are HUGE!!! The beach takes maybe a minute to get to and the beach views from the house are wonderful. We didn’t even need to bring our beach chairs there were a ton at the house along with umbrellas, boogie boards, kayak and bicycles. We rode bicycles daily, the trip to Seaside was not bad at all and you could even ride to Rosemary Beach, We recommend doing that early in the morning because it gets kinda hot. Do not be afraid to rent this house, it has everything you need and the most perfect location. We hope to vacation here again!!!
Family Weekend Getaway
WOW! What a beautiful home. The pictures will never be able to capture the true beauty and serenity of this beach home. We will definitely be staying here again. The ocean is literally feet away from the front door so it was easy to escape to the sand at any time of day and night. We saw the sun rise, the sun set and we even ventured out at night to see the crabs in the sand. This home has great crosswind when you open all the doors on the main floor. We never even turned the unit on and my mother and father (retirement age) were nice and comfy in the in-law suite just off the garage. We didn’t eat out much, but cooked every meal in and the kitchen was equipped with all the utensils and pots and pans that we needed. One of the highlights of the weekend was finding out that the bike rental shop actually delivers and picks up……so we took a bike ride to seaside and back several times…….it was an easy ride and so enjoyable. Well, I could go on and on……..we truly did not want to leave. Just as a reference, the listing is very accurate about the number of people who can sleep in this home comfortably.
