Birthday at the Beach 2013
Rating Details: I was more than satisfied with the condition of the vacation rental. I was very happy with the location. The vacation rental was spotless. The property manager was very helpful. Overall, I recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: This is a superb house. Very nicely done and well stocked with almost everything you need as far as Utensils , Pots , Pans etc... We had brought some various Bowls , Pans , Knives with us anticipating the minimum but soon realized we over packed. The Upstairs Master bedroom / Office make for an awesome Siesta get away. The only reason I gave the one 4 star was we had some trouble with the Sauna (end of January) and it never did quite get warm enough but this wasn't a show stopper for us. Can't wait to stay here again.

Dreamy vacation at Absolute Deckadence
Absolute Deckadence is a beautiful home for a dreamy vacation. PLENTY of room for a large family, tasteful decor, well stocked kitchen, and a really big, wonderful pool. The screened porch is a beautiful (bug free) place to watch the dolphins and the sunsets. Great beach and nice boardwalk to get out over the dunes. The elevator is wonderful for folks with a little more trouble going up and down stairs. Our family loved it!

Extraordinary home!Guest comment entered by manager
Absolute Deckadence is an extraordinary vacation home. From April 7th to the 14th of 2012, I traveled with my family and a few friends for Easter Break. After the 20 hour car ride from Wisconsin, we were all delighted to find the splendor of Absolute Deckadence. The cleanliness of the rental house is unparalleled. When I arrived, the floors were spotless, the beds were made nice and crisp, all of the pans and utensils were organized into separate drawers in the kitchen, and the showers were sparkling clean. As I soon learned, it is impossible to keep sand from drifting in with children and teenagers trekking from the pool to the beach and then back to the house, yet when we first arrived there was not a single grain on the bottom floor. The amenities included in Absolute Deckadence were just as wonderful as its tidiness. I loved the lighted pool and hot tub. After swimming in the ocean for the day, I could then continue swimming in the pool or relax in the hot tub. Also, the expansive kitchens allowed for quick and efficient cooking even though there were about 15 people to feed. What most amazed me was the screen lined deck. Bugs were a little bit of a problem during our visit, but the screened-in deck allowed us to watch the majesty of the sunset over the ocean. Lastly, and most importantly, the Cape San Blas Peninsula is magnificent. The pristine beaches have wonderful, soft sand. Of all the places anyone in my traveled, everyone agreed that Cape San Blas had the most beautiful beaches. Another fantastic aspect of the trip was the bicycle ride to the lighthouse. By bike it took only approximately 10 minutes to reach the lighthouse from Absolute Deckadence. Once on the top, there was a gorgeous view of the peninsula and the bay. It really showcased the clear water and white sand beaches of beautiful Cape San Blas.

Absolute Deckadence is a hit with all age ranges!
We stayed the week of 3-24-12 and had fantastic weather! We had three families with High School Senior boys and we all had a blast. The house was beautiful inside and out and it was great to spend time in the pool and hot tub. This was a fantastic area because you don't have the crowded beaches and tourist shops that they do in Panama City Beach. But if you need that a night or two PCB is only about an hour away. I highly recommend this house and we will definitely be back!

Great Vacation, Great Home
Great Vacation, Great Home
We just returned from a week at this home. I am so sorry for the poor review earlier made. The house is not handicap accessible and is not advertised to be. We understood that the elevator is only for convenience...when you feel like you can't walk up the steps or need it for groceries, luggage, etc. We loved everything about the house and felt it met all our needs. We have found in other houses that pictures can sometimes deceive, but we felt this house was exactly as described. My husband and I give a beach trip to our kids and their families each year for christmas. We have stayed in some very nice homes, but this is the first one that we want to come back to. We thought the movie set up and selection was fine. Kids loved watching Indiana Jones while us adults watched something else. Also, we brought some favorites from home. Between the pool and the easy beach access we stayed outside almost all day. The kitchen was wonderful. One of the best supplied we have ever used. The only draw back to the area is grocery shopping. Piggley Wiggley is not too far, but it is not a first or even second class grocery. We brought a lot of food with us so it was not really a big problem. Next year we will know how to plan ahead a bit better. We bought shrimp from a local shop that was wonderful!! We also ate fish we caught one night...delicious. One night we ate scallops that we caught ourselves. fun and delicious. Grill still needs some work. It was ok but was hard to light and hard to keep going. But reading the other review, we see and understand what happened. Why would someone put charcoal in a gas grill? This house is so well maintained, that I am sure this will be properly addressed. Every person in our family loved the house and Cape San Blas. We look forward to our return next year. Our contract will be mailed Monday.

Manager response: We are so glad you enjoyed your stay. This is a fabulous home. We have taken care of the grill problem as soon as we were aware of it. It needed a new regulator and is now working fine. The charcoal situation happened earlier in July 2011. We look forward to having you back next year. Sunset Reflections...

Agony and Ecstacy
Please read the description of the property very carefully. There is only one bedroom in the entire house with a private bath, which can be troublesome. In addition, the house in neithe ADA or handicap accessible despite having an elevator. The property managers were quite unsympathetic to my father's plight of sponge baths and assistance with other bathroom facilities. There are also no ramps to offer wheelchair access onto the decks. Aesthetically the home is nice, but a look to the left might cause envy. The beach access is the best amenity and the home offers umbrellas and beach chairs and a variety of pails and shovels, but I suggest you bring your own boogie board. The second best amenity is the kitchen with its large marble countertops and double ovens, making service of large family meals a convenience. The nearest fully stocked grocery store is in Port St Joe, so stop by the Piggly Wiggly on your way in as the drive to return can be daunting especially at night. Kayak rental is available across the street from the property. The house provides some bluray movies and a range of VHS tapes, but the only bluray player is in the main living room. The grill was quite troublesome as well, so having your own grill in tow is a benefit if you indulge in the fine art of outdoor cooking.

Manager response: All reviews on this house have been excellent and 5 out of 5 stars. It is unfortunate that these guests had a wheelchair requirement that was not adequately supported by this house. We had not been asked about wheelchair limitations at time of booking or prior to arrival. The bathroom doors will not accommodate a full sized wheelchair. We were very sorry that the house did not support the father, and we had suggested trying to find a smaller wheelchair and had offered to let the tenants depart early with refund for unused days. At the time, we were told they loved the house and wanted to stay. The bathroom situation is described accurately in the listing and on our website. The master bedroom has a private bath. Three bedrooms have direct access to a shared bath including 2 that share a jack’n jill bath, but have their own separate vanity areas, and one bedroom with doorway into bath that is also accessible via the hallway. There is also a full bath on the main floor close to the living space and the 1 bedroom on that floor, a half bath on the ground level near the pool deck and an outdoor hot and cold shower with privacy surround. In total 4.5 baths plus outside shower. The beachfront pool and spa are large and there are lots of lounge chairs and other seating at the pool area. The home has several DVD players only one of which is a blu-ray. The home does have several blu-ray movies and some non blu-ray movies and we know that many of our guests like to bring their own favorite DVD’s or rent them. We will add a few more non blu-ray DVD’s to the library so that people can take them to their bedrooms or the second sitting area. This home is new, very well equipped, and there are beach chairs provided. If you are looking for other toys such as boogie boards, you should bring your own or purchase them at the store 1/2 mile away. There are 2 great convenience stores within a couple of miles of the house that can fill a lot of your needs. The grill is a gas grill and is working fine, except that it had to be serviced and cleaned out after these tenants filled it with charcoal and used it as a charcoal grill. The home does not have a charcoal grill at this time.

Absolute Deckadence I have stayed in many rental homes along the Gulf Coast and I can honestly say that this was by far the most beautiful house I have ever stayed in. We were 4 couples and had plenty of room to gather as a group and enough space to have alone time to ourselves. We all enjoyed the heated pool and spa. The kitchen is well stocked and we cook almost every meal at the house being one of the girls is a world class chef. Of course the beach at "The Cape" is my favorite beach in the world. I also want to compliment Sunset Reflections and Denise Strickland for attention to detail and always pleasant making you feel like you are the most important person when you know she is juggling 1000 balls at once. Sunset Reflections and Denise made staying at Absolute Deckadence the best vacation.

We loved this house!
We loved this house! We enjoyed our week long family gathering making use of the many amenities this beautiful home has to offer. Our group of 13 people ranging in ages from 10 to 70, and 3 pups were very comfortable, this is a large and well appointed house in a setting that exceeded all our expectations; we just wish we could have stayed longer. The elevator was a big plus for the older family members, as well as for transporting luggage and groceries. The kitchen was well stocked and fit for a gourmet chef. The Pool and Spa area was great for the whole family to play and relax together and the outdoor shower was very convenient after a day at the beach. Cape San Blas is a great place for dogs; our pups loved the house and especially the ample beach. The decks offered exceptional views to the ocean and the magnificent sunsets over the gulf. Absolute Deckadence was a very relaxing and enjoyable vacation for all ages. The Borges Family, Lantana, TX
