Best family beach vacation house ever!

  • 5 of 5

We have a large, loud family and this house was perfect for us!. We loved being so close to the beach, the views, the pool just feet away. One of the things that lots of people don't mention is soundproofing. This house was the best soundproofed of any house we have ever stayed in which was great for early morning risers and night owls sharing space. The kitchen was fabulous, beds comfortable and everything was great! This is not a location for people who want to have lots of interactions with other people but if you like beautiful views, lots of solitude and great shelling, this is wonderful! All family members ages 5 through 82 voted for this house again.

Great place in a great location

  • 5 of 5

Tipsy Turtle is a great place. Way larger than the sleeping capacity, it is situated in a great location with very little beach pressure. Get bored with the beach? The pool is just next door. But don't worry about huge noisy pool crowds. They aren't there. If you want lots of nightlife and an abundance of restaurants close by, go to the crowds of Panama Beach or Destin. This is a quiet place and you have to drive a ways to a restaurant, but there are plenty. The water typically a bit stained compared to Destin, but clean enough for lots of Gulf fun. Tipsy is clean and well stocked, and Stefanie is a phone call away if you need her. We'll be back.

Great Location!

  • 4 of 5

This is a great location, short walk down the boardwalk onto the beach, and next door to a little used community pool. While the location is super, the house needs a little TLC. A lot of the outside furniture needs to be tossed or replaced. Some of the door locks should be replaced. But the elevator is a super addition when it is time to unload the car! Inside, the place is huge and well suited to our party of 6 adults and one child. We could have slept more kids, but probably not adults. Two of the single beds are in a hallway, separated from the traffic by a curtain. But the other four bedrooms are well furnished with one king, two queens and a room with two singles. While there are some areas that need attention, we hope to come back next year.

Our Fifth Time Back to Tipsy Turtle

  • 4 of 5

My family (6 adults and 4 teenagers) spent a week at Tipsy Turtle earlier this month. As usual, it was great. This was our 5th year to stay in this house. The 10 of us were comfortable.....this is a BIG house. The 2 minute walk to the ocean is wonderful. And the beautiful pool just feet away from the house is perfect for a daily cool-off swim. The ocean views make it all worth it.

And the elevator is a life saver!! Overall it was a great week and we highly recommend Tipsy Turtle.

We had only a few issues. The door handle on the door that leads down the steps to the beach was very tricky and we spent a week fighting with it. Most of the week we could not use that door. We were assured this lock will soon be replaced so it should not be a problem for other guests. There was a light bulb in one of the bathrooms burned out, and the smoke detector batteries in the main living area need replacing (they beeped !!). Other than these minor things it was a perfect week!!

Beach Babes

  • 4 of 5

We had a ladies week at the beach. This house was perfect. Right next to the pool. We had it all to ourselves.. Within walking distance to the Raw Bar (best seafood ever) The owners were very laid back and exceptionally nice. The house needs a few fixes and updates. Needs a really good cleaning and furniture in the living area needs an update. All in all a great place to stay . want to get it again next year.
