Better than advertised!

  • 5 of 5

I stayed at this property from April 5 - 8, 2018, along with 21 friends for my bachelor party. This house MADE our trip. Our expectations were high going into the weekend after we all watched the HGTV special. This house did not disappoint! It was across the street from the beach, the home and pool were exactly as pictured, and there was plenty of room for all of us. We are 32 to 35 years old, so we wanted a place where everyone could sleep comfortably. We also wanted a place where all 22 of us could congregate and watch the Masters. There was also plenty of room for us to grill out and get together around the pool. This house was PERFECT!

This house would also be great for several couples travelling together. It as just as easy for large groups to spread out as it is to gather together. The four King bedrooms with en suite bathrooms provide a lot of privacy and solitude.

The owner of the home, Melissa, had just about as much to do with our experience as the house did. She accommodated our group in every way she could and she was extremely responsive. We had a late flight back to Minneapolis on Sunday and she allowed us to stay in the home until we left for the airport - no one does that! This allowed us to recover from all the sun we got over the weekend and watch the final round of the Masters (and make one last stop at our beach bar). We loved our stay and can't wait to get back. Thank you, Melissa!

The house did not disappoint plenty of space for everyone never felt over crowded and the pool was very nice just as pictured.The views of fire works was amazing we enjoyed from pool level and some of our guest took advantage of balcony to watch . Melissa was very prompt in answering any questions or concerns we had . I would definitely recommend to my family and friends.

There are no words on how GREAT and spacious this house is . My family fell in love with this house .We turned on the grill and stayed in the pool most of the time we went to the beach that was ONLY a 2 min walk . There was 22 of us and slept comfortably . We enjoyed a nice bike ride around the neighborhood with the bikes that were available in the garage PLUS there was also beach toys and chairs available .We will definitely be booking this home again next year . Ms Melissa was available she contacted me to make sure everything was ok . My family had loads of fun a well needed get away with our loved ones that we don't regularly see do to us living so far from each other . We all were more then satisfied with our stay my 2 boys loved it . THANK you again Melissa hope to speak to you again next year for our stay ....👌👍😍🌊
