Private Homes house description
Feel the gulf breezes from the upper deck at Rutan's Retreat! This cute beach house has everything you will want in a beach getaway: lots of open spaces inside to relax and kick back after a day at the beach. There is a dining area with table seating a nice breakfast bar area, where the family can oversee the preparation of your 'catch of the day'. A comfortable sofa and lounging area with television round out the relaxation area. The main bedroom upstairs has a queen bed with ceiling fan. A 'jack and jill' bath insures privacy for all guests. There is a shower, but 2 sinks and 2 stools. The second bedroom has 2 full beds.
Downstairs is the guest retreat which can extend your families' accommodations should you decide to need it for a nominal additional price. If you choose to rent it as well, you get another dining area, a kitchenette with microwave and mini refrigerator, a bath with shower, and a sleeping area with queen 4 poster bed, television and in the other sleeping alcove two more twin beds. Both the front door and bedroom door open out onto the carport area where there is picnic table.
A Bar-B-Q is provided downstairs and you will really enjoy having that covered carport area to shade you from the sun and enjoy al fresco dining all day long.
There is a fenced yard!Also extra parking for your boat!
Rutan's Retreat is just a short walk to the beach. Located on eleventh street which runs parallel to the Gulf Beach, you can access the beach easily from Avenue G either by foot or by car. We gladly provide beach towels and beach mats for our guests as well as a few beach chairs. Our closet is also stocked with games and activities for fun in the evening.

- A slice of beach is seen from the porch and front deck, but the sea breezes are evident and plentiful daily. If you love watching people, this is the perfect house. Also if you travel with families with young children which you would like to separate from the rest of the families OR a more mature couple who would like to get up and fix their own coffee in the morning, this is the perfect home since the downstairs has its own kitchenette. The downstairs unit will also accept a dog, but FIDO is not welcome upstairs on the new carpet....moreless

We booked this property and the information on the owners website was confusing and false. The house was not well kept at all and was dangerous for pets and children. The stairs and balcony had exposed rusted nails and the yard was so full of stickers that people nor pets could use it. The owner was not respectful and refused to speak with us about our concerns. We ended up not completing our booked stay at the property. We have stayed in Port A for the last 15 years, and this was our worst experience.

We rented this unit in August for a fun family gathering of 11 people. We were celebrating our 35th wedding anniversary and wanted to include the whole family PLUS the dog. I must say it was the EASIEST vacation we've ever had. Everything was just as we were promised with no unwelcomed surprises!!! The fenced yard was perfect our Buffy and the cottage was perfect for us; plenty of room for everyone to have their own space. The management was very accommodating. They gave us all the island info we needed and even included towels for the beach!!! The kitchen is awesome for food prep and we took advantage of the outdoor grill. Oh what fun!!! Our only complaint was that we didn't have more time to spend there. We'll definitely be back!!!
