It IS a "Great Gulf Getaway"!!!
It IS a "Great Gulf Getaway"!!!
My husband and I celebrated our 40th wedding anniversary with our three children, their spouses and our 4 grandkids in this lovely home. The photos do not lie; this is a VERY spacious home with plenty of room for adults and children alike. The "girls" and I especially appreciated the big kitchen with huge counter space for prep and cooking. We also enjoyed the large dining table for family meals and the adjacent eating space on the first floor porch. The large flat screen TV's in the living room and ALL adult bedrooms plus the 3rd floor "movie" room were a nice bonus!! The house, including the three levels of porches, was so large we all could have our "own" space. The location is ideal in close enough to the pool and beach but far enough for privacy and quiet. The few minor issues we had were taken care of promptly and satisfactorily by the owner and local manager. I would highly recommend this home and hope to return there in the near future.

This home is one of the most beautiful, inviting and comforable homes in all of Seacrest. Cathie has done a fantastic job with decorating and with the detail for her guests. We have rented for years, and stumbled upon this home and have already booked our next visit in August. I highly recommend this home and homeowner.

This house is beautiful and in a beautiful location! The home is lavishly decorated, incredibly spacious, and has plenty of amenities! This is the kind of luxury you want to enjoy on vacation! The whole experience was great. We had three families in our family get-together here, and everyone loved it. In addition to the ocean, of course, the pools were fun (could not believe how large the pools are). I can't think of any place I've ever stayed that was nicer. Would definitely recommend it, and in fact I plan to stay here again. I would say that somehow the photos don't do it justice. Everthing is new, so of course it is well-maintained. The owner is easy to communicate with.

We really enjoyed our recent stay at this house. It is very new and modern with great beds, cookware, appliances and bathrooms. The multiple decks and porches are very nice and the community pool is a highlight. You just can't beat this community. Would highly recommend to any anyone.
