Thank you so much for your beautiful home. (Love the decor!) We enjoyed being there so much, it was perfect for us. We had such a great time!!!! Thanks again for all you did to make your home so enjoyable and comfortable and work for us. It was a special time at a special place.
This house was in a perfect location, views were amazing, 3 families(good friends) shared it and the rooms were able to accommodate all of us. The beach was beautiful. About 30 stair steps down to beach, be aware. Area was all bike-able or walkable to restaurants, shops, etc.
The great: Location -- close to the beach, great views, love the neighborhood. Beautiful decor, the newly converted garage is wonderful. Easy to work with the owners and managers.
The "not so great": Not having a garbage disposal was a pain. We cook in a lot and had such a hard time getting used to cooking without this modern convenience. Also, we struggled with the front door lock system -- never did get that one to work.
The "really needs attention": The 2 king beds were some of the most uncomfortable mattresses I've ever encountered. Normally, the king master with the big bath is the "prize" room with our group, but by the end of the week we had moved the kids to the awful kings. Bowed in the middle, hard as rocks, those 2 mattresses are old and overdue for an upgrade. The tower room and garage room beds are new and fantastic -- the 2 queen room beds were pretty good too.
With good king beds, this house gets 5 stars from us. We loved the place, but I can't say that I had a good night's sleep.
This is my fifth year staying in this wonderful home in Old Florida Beach and I hope to have many, many more. Moeller house is beautifully decorated, comfortable, and very well positioned for beach time. Since the home is fully furnished, I do not have to bring any of my own cookware or other house-keeping items. Nothing is missing!
My friends, children and grand children join me most years and together we have accumulated great memories. There is plenty of room for visitors with comfortable beds, spacious rooms, great views, and the kitchen is a dream for any size group! Can't say enough about working with the great Moeller family to arrange my visit each year. They are the best! I believe the fact that I return each year to this beautiful home speaks volumes about how completely wonderful it is. Each year I anticipate my trip to the Moeller house with great excitement and happiness.
Bike trails, walking trails, great places to eat within walking distance, fun places to visit near by, great shopping, and on, and on!! All wonderful!
Thanks so much to Patsy and her family!!!
We just returned from our stay at this house, and we had a terrific week. The house is centrally located between the boardwalk to the beach and the pool, giving us excellent access to both. We had a tiny glitch with the wi-fi, but the owners got in touch with us within 2 hours and we were able to get things back up and running within 15 minutes after that.
The house was well-maintained and beautifully decorated, though I felt tiny in some of the chairs because the seat was so deep.
This location gave us great access to local hotspots, including Silver Sands Outlet Mall and Rosemary and Alys Beaches, yet was right on the beach and in a gated community that gave us comfort with a very active 4 year old running around.
I would recommend this house to friends.
I never wrote a review from our stay last May, but I should have. This house is amazing. It is in a great location (so close to the beach), has incredible views, and is just as pretty and nicely decorated as it looks in the photos. The tower room and deck is breathtaking. We truly enjoyed our stay!
Our family enjoyed a wonderful week. The house is beautiful, plenty of space and spectacular ocean views. The kids den was the perfect for our family. Our kids were able to play while the adults enjoyed some peace in the evening.
