The property manager was very helpful.
The vacation rental was very clean.
I was somewhat unhappy with the location.
I was somewhat dissatisfied with the condition of the vacation rental.
Overall, I do not recommend this vacation rental.
Overall this house was good. The location to a private beach was awesome but it does overlook a public beach with cars and lots of traffic. . There were a few things we were not happy with, first of which being the owner lives right next door. As someone that personally owns multiple properties in Texas I feel that if you have a property management company you need to let them do their thing and you stay out of it. A few different times she would run over or try to talk from her deck but in a nosey, not helpful way. She even ran over to shut our gate once when my 3 year old was on the deck with my was annoying. The path to the beach isn’t a long walk but it’s overgrown and for my 3 year old the prickly grass from the dunes was right in his face. So we had to carry him. Every.single.time. It would be nice if this was either better maintained (wider path of just sand) or a deck path built to walk out on. Lastly and most importantly there is next to nothing you can use on the beach. There is one old, broken umbrella that we had to rig (after pulling it out from under the house ourselves) to have any shade and 5 older, rusty beach chairs (there are 2 small ones that are newer). No sand toys, snorkel gear etc. This is the only place we’ve ever stayed, from Destin to Seaside, that didn’t offer a good sturdy umbrella, chairs and toys! Just crazy! Flying from Texas it is not practical to travel with that stuff so it was very disappointing. It was also frustrating to see the owner set up right next to us on the beach with TWO brand new umbrellas for just her and one friend while we are next to her with an old broken one just trying to shade the kids. Again, don’t offer up the info that you own the place and then do that. Overall, the house is adorable and was pretty clean. If the house had more beach gear and wasn’t right next door to the owner we would stay there again. We are looking for a different house for next year though
