"First of all, the views from the master bedroom 2nd floor balcony are beautiful!! It was so nice being able to see the ocean and hear the waves from the house! The home does have lots of stairs which was a little bit tiring, especially since the private beach access is down the road about 2 blocks. We definitely got a lot of exercise during our stay! The master bedroom is huge, and the king bed was 'ok'. It was not the most comfortable bed. It also squeaked very loudly with any little movement, so this also woke us up periodically at night. The house is nicely decorated...a little outdated, but nice. The beach is about a 6 minute walk from the house. You have to cross the street, and then walk about a block and a half to 2 blocks down the road to reach the beach. The private beach was not crowded at all once you get there, and it's beautiful! The Dune Allen public beach access, which is also down the street in the opposite direction from the private beach, is very crowded and probably too far for most people to walk. It took us at least 25 to 30 minutes to get to Destin, and traffic was horrible the closer you get to Destin. Santa Rosa Beach is fairly quiet. We also drove down 30A toward PCB and went to some of the other little 30A towns, and they were charming, especially Seaside. All and all this is a good place to stay, and I would recommend it as long as your physically able to deal with a short walk to get to the beach, and the stairs at the house. I already miss it there!!!"

"Beautifully decorated home with great views.
The pros: short walk to beach, pretty lake w/person dock.
Cons: small garbage can, needs window treatments for privacy & to keep house cooler, traffic noise"

"I decided to take my parents, my younger sister, and my two small dogs on a relaxing trip to 30A. After doing some research on VRBO, I came across Slightly Shady and decided this was the best fit for my family. Best decision ever. The entire process from start to finish was easy and pleasant! The owners were so friendly and welcoming! The home was exactly what the doctor ordered. We were just STEPS away from the beach, a lovely walk from Gulf Place, 6-8min away from Publix and a short car ride away from all the other wonderful 30A beach communities and restaurants. The house was clean, roomy, and had great porches to sit and enjoy the wonderful Gulf Air. I recommend this property for just about any occasion! My entire family (yup- dogs too) loved Slightly Shady! We are looking forward to our next visit!!"

Great location...Walking distance to beach access!!
"Great location. Perfect for big families. Bath for every Bedroom. Easy walking distance to beach access for adults & children. Well stocked kitchen. All Bedrooms decor needs an update. (Suggest you put queen or king bed on main level & move twins to 3rd level) The open living & dining area is spacious. Outside shower was a bonus when coming in from the beach. A great place to enjoy life and make memories. We will be back next year!!
