Private pool (heating optional)

Guestbook comments from the manager

We just spent "Spring Break" at Mellow Yellow and we had a fabulous time. The beach was beautiful but the water was a little cold but we all went swimming anyway! The house is comfortable, clean and in a private location. Publix grocery store is about 1 mile away which was very convenient.

Wonderful Home in Perfect Location

  • 5 of 5

This home was the perfect fit for our family vacation. Carillon Beach is so wonderful! It is quiet and peaceful. We loved it! Mellow Yellow is a great home located super close the the beach. We have 2 small children, so being steps away from the beach was a big plus for us! We stayed in this home with our family of 4 (2 adults and 2 kids) plus 3 additional adults. All 7 of us fit comfortably in the home. The home is in great condition and stocked with everything you would need on your vacation. We will definitely be back!!

AMAZING get away! Would choose Mellow Yellow every time.

  • 5 of 5

WOW! Mellow Yellow was the perfect vacation home! Cannot express how lovely the house is, it just has so much character and well maintained. The house fit everyone in our family very comfortably. The private pool was just an added touch and was so nice to relax by after a long day at the beach! The private balcony off of the master was a nice reading spot with rocking chairs. Just another good get away spot. I was beyond thrilled with our stay and would highly recommend this house to anyone! You will not be sorry with your decision. The BEST thing about Mellow Yellow is the proximity to the beach!!! The beach is in walking distance which made the trek everyday so much easier. I could tell that there was also new carpets installed (the new carpet smell was great)! The TV's also seem newer along with nicer cable and internet package. It's nice to see that the property is well taken care of and constantly is getting upgraded. I WOULD CERTAINLY BOOK YOUR NEXT TRIP AT MELLOW YELLOW!

Owner's Response: Thank you for the wonderful review. Please come back and stay again soon! We, the owners, were recently at our home and bought and replaced a lot of items. A deep clean was done and it is now is in perfect shape for the up coming season.

Nice location, decent house, but on the downside and poorly prepared for guests

  • 3 of 5

This house was much more poorly prepared by the rental agent than any other I've rented. Not too clean, the only clock had a dead battery, mouse "tracks" in kitchen drawers, not well stocked with things one takes for granted (no salt and pepper, no hot pads, only one dish towel and dish cloth and no scrubbing utensil) and the swimming pool heat was not turned on and, strangest of all, three of the four televisions were unplugged and unhooked from the cable AND the wi-fi router and cable interface were completely unhooked and left in a tangle in the back bedroom. We called about the pool heat the day we arrived and had to leave a message. An agent called back a few hours later and said he'd come look at it, but by that time we'd found the circuit box and turned it on. Don't know if he ever came, as it was after dark. We called about the wi-fi on Monday morning and left a message again. By the time someone returned the call Tuesday afternoon, I'd already found the router and gotten the wi-fi going after some false starts. That turned on the cable tv, too, but if there was anything more than the cheapest package, we never got that working.

But hey, the house did have some good points. For starters, it's only a couple hundred yards right up the street from a very nice beach, and that point of the beach is only about 50 yards from the ramp to the beach restrooms. The little pool area is nice, with a couple new chairs and two float rings. (A rotten chair, too.) The living/dining/kitchen area worked well for our party of four adults and three kids under 9. Too bad there were not glides on the chairs -- hard to scoot to the table. The first-floor bedroom was good for two kids and the second floor master was spacious & had a two-sink bathroom (although with broken towel bars) & screened porch. HOWEVER, the so-called guest room was TINY -- and because of family dynamics, we -- the paying parties -- ended up with that, the worst room in the place, with a dirty bathroom and a sliding shower door off the track. That shower door was just one example of poor repair around the place, including some dangerously rotten balcony rails and rotting wooden outdoor chairs.

Bottom line: A for the location, B- for the house, D for the rental agent (not VRBO)

PS -- just learned today on the rental agency web site that the house supposedly came with (as in free) two rental bikes & two chairs set up on the beach daily. No one from the rental agent bothered to tell us that.

Owner's Response: Sorry you were disappointed with your stay. The reason some of the cable/ internet may have been out was because brand new carpeting was installed throughout the house which you failed to comment on. You were the first guest to enjoy it! The installers were suppose to hook all cables back up. They assured me they did. My management company did inform me that they did come out to the house to turn on the pool heater. It has a lock on it and cannot be turned on by the guest unless you have requested and paid for it. I have requested they do a deep clean at my home. The house and pool area has been pressure washed since your stay which was delayed because of rainy weather for days. Cable has been upgraded with a DVR/HD box. I have an exterminator scheduled for this week. However whether you realize it or not, you did reserve my home last year before I posted my rates and received a substantial discount. I am sure you saw the rates thereafter that they were much higher. Consider yourself lucky!

Great family vacation

  • 5 of 5

We were thrilled with our stay at Mellow Yellow. Our family of five had plenty of room to relax while at the house. The backyard pool was excellent as it was a great partially shaded oasis in the afternoon after our morning/early afternoon at the beach. The size was perfect for the adults to cool off and the small children (3-6 years) to swim. Being just over a block from the beach we walked there daily. Everything worked well and was clean as advertised. Thanks for the great accommodations.

We stayed at the Mello Yellow house for 1 week and it was absolutely perfect! The house is very clean and super cute and we were able to check in early which was wonderful! The pool was a hit and a perfect end to the day. Beach access is extremely convenient, it's literally a 5 min walk to some of the most beautiful sand anywhere. We rented a golf cart for the fun and easy access everywhere we needed to go. Great vacation! Would definitely stay there again I would recommend larger TV's for the bedrooms.

Wonderful Getaway

  • 5 of 5

This house is in a great location. It's within easy walking or biking distance to Seaside and Watercolor and beach access is just a short walk across 30A at the end of the street. Traffic was pretty heavy on 30A as you got close to Seaside, so renting bikes is the best way to go if you dont' bring your own. The house was clean and ready for us to check in a little early and had everything we needed. It was evident the first night that the air conditioner on the main floor wasn't cooling, but a call to the after hours number had a repairman on site the next morning and it was fixed quickly. The house was much larger than what we needed for two people, but would be perfect for our whole family next time and the kids would enjoy the pool. I would definitely receommed to others if you're looking for a house in a quiet location with quick and easy access to the beach and surrounding areas.
