Very happy with this house!!

  • 5 of 5

We usually rent a very large condo directly on the beach, but this year we wanted an extra bedroom and some extra living space so chose this house and was very happy. It is 4 large bedrooms plus one smaller bunk room. The house is 1 block from the beach access...a short 5 minute walk. The house has been well maintained. The bathrooms are recently updated and are nice. The house seemed freshly painted. The floors are in good shape. The kitchen is not new but is still in pretty good shape. It was stocked with many utensils and plates, cups, silverware, etc. The back porches and furniture are so handy along with the gas grill. In the sun, the back porch gets pretty toasty...maybe could use some shade if it were summer. The front porches/balconies were always in the shade and therefore always comfortable and cool. WIFI was good. Plenty of TVs for watching the Iron Bowl. Loved the 2 "family rooms" although the main family room couches are not comfortable and should be replaced soon. We hosted 26 for Thanksgiving dinner and with the extra seating outside, it worked out great. This house is located close to the hotel where our overflow guests stayed which helped with our overflow parking needs because the hotel is only a 10 minute walk away. Parking is limited to 4 spots, but we parked a few out front and no one yelled at us. :) We liked the Crystal Beach location because it was so close to, Walmart, groceries, restaurants. The only issues we encountered upon arrival were a "slow draining tub" and a locked door to the laundry room. We contacted the rental agency, Ocean Reef, and they had both issues addressed within a few hours. We appreciated that the house was stocked with many fresh bath towels. We did not use the couch beds, but they also provided sheets and towels for those in case we needed them. Ocean Reef, with their app, was also very good about reminding us to put out the garbage which was picked up twice in our week. All in all, we would definitely rent this house again if it stays within our price range. The house felt like your home.

Clothes dryer quit working. Ocean Reef was very responsive and had it repaired the same day.

Great Spring Break Week!

  • 5 of 5

We had three families sharing this house and it was just perfect! Ideal location to the beach, and the pools, tennis courts, and hot tub were close by. The kitchen was completely stocked with everything we needed for lots of great family meals. It was nice having separate living spaces on different floors so the teens could have their space away from the sleeping baby or talking adults. Great plus that each bedroom had their own bathroom, too! We would love to go back!
