Recent Gulf Beaches reviews

  • 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 kings........no 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!!"

  • Great Family Vacation

    "We had a great family vacation at the Salty Seagull. Had the whole family (mom/dad, 4 young adult children, 1 teenager, a 2 year old and a 2 month old) down for vacation together. This place was better than advertised. They have everything you need for your stay at the beach: bicycles, beach chairs, umbrellas, etc. The beach access directly across the road was very convenient and not a problem (due to the short distance) if you forgot something at the house and had to go back for it. The house was clean, comfortable and the pictures probably don't do it justice. The hot tub/spa was great for the adults as well as the children, and the area where is it located is perfect for grilling in the afternoons with the grill provided. Peter and Sara greeted us as we arrived and truly welcomed us into their home. They could not have been any nicer or more helpful. They were truly gracious with everything they have there. The beach was beautiful; we saw dolphins every day; collected shells, found huge starfish and sand dollars, as well as other sea creatures; fishing from shore was great. We went kayaking in the bay and gulf and there was easy access to both. There were bicycle/running paths all over the island that were great, of which we enjoyed riding the bikes provided on. The Island is beautiful and a great place to have a quiet vacation with family. We will definitely recommend this place to family and friends and hope to return in the future."

  • Great Experience

    "My brother and I met up here for a week with our families and had a wonderful time. The house is very clean and well stocked. It's close enough to the beach, yet has a nice secluded feel in the back. Every touch point from booking, meeting with the realtor, and enjoying the house was simple and low stress. The only thing I could see improvement on was the grill. There is a small metal charcoal grill available. I would love to see it with a larger gas/propane option. Thanks for a great stay!"
