Recent Scenic Gulf Drive East reviews

  • Great location and really nice unit

    "The property and unit was very well kept. Pools were great and big plus that you get two beach chairs and an umbrella set up with the room. Every unit has a beach & ocean view with a nice balcony. The tiki bar does well with drinks and food. The staff is very nice and have lots of suggestion on restaurants and things to do. Has a garage to keep your car cooler which is great. The room was clean and updated. Bed was comfortable especially since it is a king size. Had the basics but you have to furnish your own paper products and trash bags. The cleanup checkout list is really short and simple. Very convenient location! There is a liquor store, Walgreens/CVS and Winn-Dixie across the street to stock up on needed items. You are 10 minutes or less to many great local and chain restaurants. Bay town wharf is 3 miles away. Really good outlet shopping is a few blocks away."

  • Wonderful Cottage for the Entire Family

    "The Backwards Crab was perfect for our family! We stayed at the Backwards Crab Labor Day Weekend 2014 with my parents, 2 teenagers, and two 5 year olds. ALL were very happy with the BC! It is a two level home, which offered a sense of space and privacy if/when the living area became too loud with football on the TV and the little one playing with his toys. The two bottom floor rooms have their own bathrooms and porches with comfy chairs. The upstairs room and living area each have a balcony and share a bathroom. The 3 bathrooms were a blessing for getting ready! The boardwalk to the beach is visible from the driveway and only took 3-4 minutes to walk. It was very close to the beach. The beach was phenomenal! There was plenty of non-condo chaired beach to enjoy and the water was the clearest blue-green. We never made it to the pool b/c we were having so much fun at the beach. I thought the pool seemed much closer to the BC than I expected from the listing photo. From the upstairs room balcony, if you look to the left, the pool is across the street. This house was extremely well stocked and had EVERYTHING we could have needed. The kitchen had 2 drawers with 2 sets of silverware and every cooking utensil/pan we needed to cook with. The wagon made taking the chairs, toys, cooler, and umbrellas to the beach a breeze! Another thing we loved was the shower outside for us to rinse off the sand! There were flashlights in the pantry, and nets, and buckets in the outside storage box so we went "crab hunting" one night on the beach. It was great! All were tickled to find multiple boogie boards to play with at the beach in the closet and storage box, however, several were broken (Styrofoam). They were still fun to play with and a blessing to have for the weekend. I thought the house looked even better in person than the listing photos portrayed. The decor is fantastic and everything ties together for a fun and comfortable environment. I was told bymy mom and teenage son the couch was extra comfy. The chocolate crabs were a nice welcome and personal touch. All were impressed with how clean the BC was when we arrived. Our teenagers walked to the Outlet Mall, which is conveniently across a main street from the neighborhood. Lisa was very easy to communicate with, accommodating, and always replied the same day with any questions I had and I had several. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Backwards Crab and hope to return next year!"

  • Wonderful Beach Getaway

    "This condo was just what we were looking for. It was beautiful, clean and had all the amenities of home and more! Only steps away from the beach, the view was incredible. The condo owners were very easy to work with. The maintenance crew takes pride in what they do and keep the property spotless. There was a binder in the room with restaurant menus and suggestions which we found very helpful. The property had a great location. You could do many activities (wonderful restaurants and shops nearby) or just relax. We would recommend this condo to anyone!"

  • Dream Wedding Success

    "My family and I used the Alotta Colada as our home away from home during my wedding. My husband and I got married on the beach in front of Alotta Colada and continued the celebration with the reception at the house. We had a little over 100 guests in attendance, and the courtyard area was spacious enough to hold all my guest. The house was large enough to house all 16 of our attendance, as well as my family. Everyone had tons of room. The owners are awesome and are there for you in anyway possible. We are looking forward to booking this house again."
