Recent Gulf Beaches reviews

  • Family get-together

    "Me, my husband and toddler booked for four nights as part of a longer stay in Florida from England to visit my brother and his family, who live in Tallahassee. They stayed with us for the weekend, so the house was fully occupied with eight people for a couple of days. This was perfectly manageable, given the large pull-out sofa bed in the lounge. The house is really lovely. The decor is modern, but homely and reflects the beach house nature of the property. The kitchen was equipped with everything we could have wanted. We knew the beach already, but had only visited for a day before. It was so nice to be able to wander down to it and spend time there, but get back home quickly if we'd forgotten anything, or for our toddler's nap. My brother, husband and my brother's two sons went on a fishing trip with Peregrine Charters out of Apalachicola, who we would recommend to others. We had a variety of fish that evening and used the grill outdoors. We ate out twice at the Blue Parrot. The food is great and the location right on the beach really wonderful, but the price reflects this! All in all, having looked at a few options, I'm really glad I chose this place. It's not beach-front, but you still get lovely gulf views. We hope to return in the future and would definitely consider staying in the house again, if it were available."

  • Early Summer Family Vacation

    "Loved the property, the amenities, and the owners! It was a wonderful week, and the house was just perfect for us. My favorite part (if I had to choose) was the pool area. We love to cook, so the newly done kitchen was also great fun for us. The house was large enough to spread out, and we all could be together, or find our own little spot. The porch was my early-morning treat, with my coffee. Wish I could of stayed longer. I will definitely rent this house again! Thanks to Ben and Sharon for making the vacation stress free."

  • Home on the Bay

    "Absolutely awesome home..... What a pleasure to of rented such a awesome house. My newphew was married on the island and we decided to stay a few extra days. This house had every amenitie you could think of. The house was so clean and well maintained. Even though the sun never came out we still had the best time. We enjoyed the puzzles and playing cards. Thank goodness for the dock, we were still able to fish even though the weather was bad. We met the neighbors Charles and Jean. They were the sweetest couple! We will definitely rent again!"

  • Highly Recommend!!

    "I rented this house for my wife's 40th birthday celebration. She invited 12 of her "closest friends"! Thunderstruck was more than large enough to accommodate this group. I loved the fact that all of the beds were either twin, queens, or bunk beds for the adult guests! The house was very well furnished, all the way down to the bicycles. My wife's favorite part was the Tiki Bar! I agree with the previous reviews, the pictures really don't do the house justice. At first I was a little leery of dealing with a property owner so far away, but trust me, Rich was very available and always responsive to any question I had. The on-site property manager was also very helpful. We will definitely rent Thunderstruck again!!"
