There’s a lot there!
The house is great for large family groups. Consider the many stairs in beach houses when you pack your belongings for the trip. The house isn’t necessarily elder friendly. We found the trip up and down with heavy items difficult. Especially since some were unnecessary. DON’T bring a blender! There are plenty of pots, pans, dishes and silverware enough for an army. We brought so much that we didn’t use. Their list needs updating! Even beach chairs were available in the ground floor porch. (Past guests leave a lot behind rather than take it home) There were even enough bath towels for everyone without having to bring extras. (Found them on each bed - so plenty available). Having the laundry available was such a plus. We didn’t like the water taste so filtered or bottled water was necessary. Skip the K cups - it’s a Mr Coffee in the kitchen (another unnecessary item brought)We had questions/issues but found Kristi very responsive!
Really appreciate you taking the time to write such a thoughtful and thorough review for the next guests! With all the houses on stilts being next to the water, you can certainly get your exercise. Thanks for choosing our home, and we hope you'll be back!
Our multi-generational group of 14 had an absolutely lovely time! So much to do and plenty of space to do it. The kiddos loved the adorable bunk room (and their parents appreciated the comfortable and nearby chaperone's quarters on the lower level). In the morning for coffee and the evening for cocktails, the adults enjoyed hanging out on the upper screened deck hearing the sounds of the surf and watching the beautiful Gulf water while the kids ran around the yard. It was very relaxing. We'll be back!
Excellent to hear your December getaway was a success at our beachside home! You were wonderful guests to host. Thank you for leaving our home in such great condition. You could hardly tell you had been there. Please do plan a return trip!
Very comfortable beds and the bedding any towels were amazing. Roomy Kitchen and living room, perfect seating in dining room for all of us at Meals. Nicely decorated. Can’t think of anything that we needed that wasn’t already there. The view was awesome. Great fenced area for our pets. Will definitely be back!!!
Sounds like you getaway was a great success so glad we could be part of it! Thanks for noting the creature comforts, decor and setup. You were ideal guests to host. You left our home so clean, wow! Please do come back!
We enjoyed our stay and had a nice time visiting with family. The house is very dog friendly. Be sure to bring plenty of bottled water for drinking and coffee.
Happy to hear your family including the dog enjoyed your stay at our home! Thanks for being courteous guests to host! Come and back and join us again!
Entry issues upon arrival, felt caretakers went above call of duty for correction and sincerely cared to exceed resolution and expectations
Glad we could get you taken care of right away and hope you enjoyed the gift! Trust that you thoroughly enjoyed the beachfront location fully. Please come back again for some more island time!
The property has such easy access to the beach. We had a fantastic time with family. We will be planning another trip next year! The beds were so comfortable and lots of space for our family to meet and visit.
How nice to hear-glad the family beachside getaway was comfortable and fun! We'd be delighted to have you back again!
This beachfront home was decorated so beautifully on the inside. We weren't at a hotel, we were invited to someone's home. Each bedroom had plenty of dressers and closet space. We didn't have to live inside our suitcases. It was nice having a grass yard big enough for volleyball! The kitchen was set up so well, four of us could prepare meals and clean up together. From the shower down stairs - to the screened in porch every detail exceeded our expectations.
How delightful to hear! Thanks so much for your kind words. We're so glad the place worked out so well for you and your group! Please join us again!
Proximity to the beach was great. House was well stocked and everything ran very well. Loved our family time together there.
Glad your family time was well enjoyed at our home! Appreciate you noting the amenities and condition, and of course, the beach. Please visit us again!
Had a wonderful week with family at this property. So many beds great space for several people and very clean linens and towels. Loved the outdoor shower. Extras at house like sand toys and boogie boards are a great surprise. Management was amazing at fixing little issues we had. The beach being RIGHT in front of the house was the best. A walkover away and your in paradise. Very clean area with cute souviner shops and great bait shops. If Surfside is in our future we will definitely stay here again! 5 stars from us!!
What a delight to hear! Thanks for being such wonderful guests to host. Glad your beachside experience was enjoyed by the entire family. We'd be thrilled to have you back again!
