The beach at your doorstep!

  • 5 of 5

A beautiful home! This family beach vacation was definitely one for the record books. We have rented many beach homes but have never had a home make you feel like you were part of the ocean the way this one did. The views (sunrises/sunsets especially) were amazing. And, the master bedroom with its floor to ceiling windows- wow!! We ate outside on the patio, made smores in the firepit - literally steps from the ocean.

The house is well stocked in the kitchen with cookware & condiments. The bedrooms were comfortable with large closets, and bathrooms had plenty of towels. They even had extra blow up mattresses if needed. For outdoor fun they had kayaks, sand toys and some blow ups to enjoy.

As for the beach wildlife- We had a resident iguana that we watched perch in its palm tree nightly. The kids loved watching the blue crabs scurry by, and hermit crabs were a huge hit, too. A manatee even came by to visit as we were paddle boarding. We rented a pontoon boat with a slide from a marina just a street away from the house and enjoyed looking for/catching lobster (it was mini lobster season). The kids enjoyed the slide while the adults snorkeled and scuba dived. A quick visit (about a 50 min. Drive) to Key West going over the history filled 7-mile bridge was great! Capping off the week we visited the Aquarium which is basically right across from the house.

To note: the bottom floor (1st) "basement" playroom area is not airconditioned. This is the area that leads out to the beach. It has ping pong, darts & a sitting area with large Tv. The main floor (2nd) has one bedroom with daybed & trundle by the kitchen and a communal bathroom with shower. The Top floor (3rd) has a master bedroom with large bathroom, & two bedrooms with queen beds and bathroom (shower only) to share.

Beachside - you may want to bring watershoes in case the sea grass is washed up onto the beach.

Incredible property and stay!

  • 5 of 5

This home was such a mystery- booked every week, yet there was only one review. I was looking forward to reading other travelers tips, so instead I will share mine.

First, the pictures do not do this home justice. It is even more beautiful in person. The vaulted ceiling with windows from top to bottom provide the perfect frame for the oceanfront view. The house also just 'felt' good. It was very clean, well cared for and a good combination of both modern and homey beach house design.

The linens were super soft and the beds were comfortable but mattresses are definitely on the softer side. There are 3 floors to this home. The main floor where you enter is the 2nd story. It has the kitchen, living and dining area, one bedroom (trundle), separate bathroom and laundry. The top or 3rd floor has the master suite/ in-suite bathroom and 2 additional bedrooms that share a bathroom. One of the bedrooms has a pocket door for direct access to the bathroom. All bedrooms had nice space, plenty of closet room and enough hangers. Linens and blankets on the beds were the perfect amount/type for the homes temperature. We kept the AC at about 73. There are two separate AC systems; one for the 2nd floor and one for the 3rd. The 1st level, or basement doesn't not have AC (or we couldn't find it) but when you open the doors the ocean provides an incredible breeze. The basement is a great game room. There is pingpong, big TV with gaming system, darts and kayaks. We brought portable speakers with us and the music with the open doors and sound of the ocean in the background livened up the space nicely.

The home has plenty of towels; both beach and for the shower. The kitchen had enough tools for cooking (no cheese grater), but had nothing with regards to ingredients. You will need to buy everything from salt and pepper and on. Coffee maker works with whole bean coffee- nice touch if thats important to you.

Some tips and FYI's: If you have little ones you may want to bring surf socks. The ocean has some seaweed on the shore, and it increases exponentially with any storms. There is also a kelp bed just past the shore. This is Florida so there are crabs pretty much everywhere- that includes in the basement and the garage. Don't mind them- they don't bother you. You will literally see them walking along the sidewalk! There are stairs, both up to the front door and down to the basement/ beach. Something to consider if they are a challenge. Would rent again in a heartbeat!
