Our favorite place on earth!

  • 5 of 5

I cannot say enough good things about our stay at Sandy Daze! The house was immaculate and comfortable. The owners were amazing and promptly responded with any questions we had before and during our stay (but we had few b/c the info they sent beforehand was so thorough!). The house came with so many extras like sand toys/boogie boards for the kids, beach wagon, kayaks, beach chairs, a Big Green Egg, books/brochures about the area....I could go on and on. Our dog enjoyed herself too! The extras Hillary provides for furry friends, plus the fact that dogs are allowed on the beach made her vacation nice as well! The location is perfect...short walk to the beach and short drive to the bay to snorkel, kayak, boat, or swim. Our party of 8 had plenty of space due to the set up of the home. This was not our first stay at Sandy Daze and I can guarantee that we will be back as soon as we can!!!

House was very well stocked. Having the ice maker was great. Stairs going to bedrooms were tricky.

  • 4 of 5

Overall I would give the house an 8. Beds were very comfortable. Large ice maker was very useful. 14 cup coffee maker was nice. The wine was very thoughtful but finally had to go buy a cork screw which I left at the house for the next renter. Mints on the pillow was a sweet idea. Stairs going up to the bedrooms have narrow treads which make them a little tricky. Also need to replace Hand held can opener.

Great get away!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 9 plus our two dogs stayed in this charming house for 7 days. We have travels often and stayed in varies VRBO’s and have never given one a 5 Star before until now.

The owners have thought of everything from dog bowls to kids games and movies.

The beach supplies under the house save you a ton of money and space in your car. They have umbrellas, chairs and beach wagons to make hauling stuff to the beach easy. The kitchen is fully stocked and has a big ice maker that makes filling your cooler a breeze. My husband fell in love with the green egg and the screened in back porch held many of our game nights and grilling. The fishing at this part of the beach was incredible for our son who caught several small sharks and a big triple tail. He was thrilled! The neighbor of nestled houses around this home is very quiet and pet friendly.

We had a bomb fire and roasted s’mores one night. On the beach.The beaches here are deserted for the most part..

This area is very family friendly and our children could walk back and forth by themselves with no issues.

A couple of things we loved as a family.

1. 3 bathrooms

2. Ice maker

3. Pet cabinet with everything you’ll ever need for your dogs.

4. Outside shower for us and our dogs.

5. Safe neighborhood

If you have kids / pets this will be your new favorite spot.. as long as it’s not the week we want to come back :)

Thank you Timmons Family for a great stay!

Great house, great vacation!!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time staying at Sandy Daze for our Spring Break vacation. The house is wonderful, spacious, and has everything you need. The owners quickly responded to my questions in the week leading up to our stay. I thoroughly enjoyed cooking on the Big Green Egg and now am considering buying one. Another perk is the ice maker in the kitchen.

While there, we rode horses on the beach, shark fished with Fishin' Express (highly recommend), watched dolphins and found lots and lots of shells. The weather was perfect as was the beach. I love that the area is dog friendly and need to figure out how to make room for my dogs in the car on my next trip down. :) We had plans to use the kayaks provided, but didn't think out how to transport them once we arrived, so we were unable to take advantage of them. We did see a lot of people kayaking in the bay and it looked fun. Will need to drive our truck down next time.

Although Sandy Daze is one set of houses back from the beach, it is still very convenient to get to the beach. You can view parts of the gulf from the decks. The screened in porch is nice when the sun is really hot, and the open deck is perfect to soak up some rays.

We highly recommend Sandy Daze if you are looking for a nice, comfortable, relaxing vacation!!

My First visit to the Florida Panhandle

  • 5 of 5

This beach home is spacious, and very comfortable. The kitchen is well stocked with all your cooking needs for those "in home" meals. The decor is kind of costal, beachy, very eclectic. The beds are all very comfortable. We enjoyed local restaurants serving up the Florida Panhandle cuisine. Most were very casual, and many pet friendly. The beach is something to be enjoyed by all, for walks, runs, and playing/swimming in the water. My family thoroughly enjoyed staying there while visiting me on their Spring breaks.

Great beach house!

  • 5 of 5

Sandy Daze is a great beach house. It is spacious and airy, completely stocked, very comfortably furnished, and just steps through the dunes to a fabulous, pet-friendly beach. It also has an extensive book-game-DVD-cd collection for young and old for those rainy days, kayaks and beach equipment. . Hillary and Todd are wonderful hosts, easy to work with and quick to respond. We thoroughly enjoyed our time at Sandy Daze and we highly recommend it.
