Very Nice Vacation Spot For a Family

  • 4 of 5

There are many positives about this house: it's a very short walk to the beach, it faces a quiet street, the grill and pool in the back of the house are nice, it has awesome porches, the floorplan on the second floor is open and friendly, there's enough space to comfortably sleep our group of 8, it has a handy laundry room and a large kitchen. We'd definitely stay there again and enjoy another week of the beautiful setting in a comfortable house. I didn't give this property five stars for a few minor reasons: after we arrived, I needed to drive some nailheads back into the deck and stairs out the back door; we found ourselves buying a new frying pan and spatula for our use; soap dispensers in the bathrooms were generally empty; we lacked a full utensil set in the kitchen; and other easily fixable stuff. In all, the positives FAR outweighed the minor negatives, and we had a great week. Thank you for sharing your home with us.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the review. The owner is actually pulling off the entire back deck and having it redone. She was there the week after you and said "Where did all the spoons go?" Silverware drawer has been replenished as well as the other issues you mentioned. We have to count on our guests to tell us about anything that needs our attention so we appreciate your comments. She has taken it off the market to sell and doing lots of updates this winter season to welcome our guests next year. Glad you enjoyed your stay!

Wonderful Home!

  • 4 of 5

My family had a great time. There were 10 of us and the home had plenty of room. I think our favorite spot was the 2nd floor deck. We could see the beach, hear the surf and the breeze was great. We arrived on Saturday and the pool wasn't usable until Monday but from that point on it was used everyday! Thanks Renee for letting us stay!

This beach house is by far our favorite of all the homes we have rented over the years! It feels so warm and inviting just like home. It is decorated so lovely with a very personal touch. I love all the cute and uplifting whimsical sayings on the walls. The deck and hammock were a favorite for us all. Our grandchildren enjoyed the hammock as much as us adults. The views of the Emerald Coast are just breathtaking from the deck!! The beach is so close with only a few steps to the boardwalk. The pool was perfect for the kids in the evening while we were grilling or relaxing by the pool. This home is very well maintained and equipped with everything you need for your stay(especially kitchen) and the owner was just great to work with. We were so pleased with this beautiful retreat that we have booked it again for next year!

PERFECT Beach house!

  • 5 of 5

This beach house was everything we needed! This review may be a little lengthy, but I'd like to include everything that I loved about it in case there is anyone out there on the border about staying here. First, the best part was the proximity to the beach. We literally had to walk past one driveway to get to the boardwalk leading to the beach. Last year we stayed in condominiums and after walking to the elevator, out of the building, and past the pools, it is nearly the same amount of steps to the beach! Not to mention, the view from the balcony is spectacular!! Next, the listing says it sleeps 10 people, but you could easily fit a few air mattresses if needed. The living area upstairs is very roomy. There are plenty of sheets, pillows, and blankets for extras as well. The kitchen is fully furnished...pots, pans, utensils, toaster, coffee pot, even some platters for entertaining and a martini shaker!! The pool area was a little smaller than the picture portrays, but that is no fault of the owner and it was large enough to cool us off and roomy enough for socializing while grilling. There is sand under the house which was great for the kids when it was raining. There was also everything you could need under the house for your use... beach chairs, sand toys, skim boards, rafts, and an umbrella. There's no way to guarantee those things will remain there, but there were plenty to go around. Whatever you do, do not leave your things on the beach over night or get them out there too early in the morning. We left our tent out on the beach to find it gone in the morning. Apparently it is not safe for the turtles, so the county picks up anything left and hauls it to the dump :( You are directly across from the outlet mall and about 10 miles from Destin. It takes about 25 minutes to make it to Destin, however, with all of the traffic. There is a Winn Dixie, TCBY, liquor store, donut shop, Starbucks, and a great restaurant called Busters all near the entrance of the subdivision. The owner is very nice and quick to answer any questions. Could not have been more satisfied with our decision to stay here at Sandtrap.

Owner's Response: Wow! Thank you for the amazing review. I never even thought about the sand under the house being a play area for the kids. The pool isn't large but larger than most homes have with a private pool. I love the ocean views from the balcony too. Thanks for mentioning not to leave things on the beach overnight, that would be so disappointing to have it taken away. I wasn't aware they were doing that in that beach area and I will add it to the check in information for all guests. We do keep it at 10 guests so everyone has a bed and enough towels. Thanks for all the great tips and we can't wait to have you back.

Wonderful family vacation.

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 9 had a wonderful time at Sandtrap and Miramar Beach. The house is very roomy so everyone had their space. The owner furnished this house with everything you could possibly need for your stay. {especially the kitchen} The walk to the beautiful beach was five minutes. I loved sitting on the porches and people watching. The pool in the back of the house was very nice to get in after a day at the beach. The owner is very easy to work with and we look forward to another stay at Sandtrap.

Another great vacation

  • 5 of 5

This was our third trip to this house and we absolutely love everything about it. It is perfectly located to the beach and shopping. The road has extremely limited traffic which is great for the small kids. We look forward to going back every year. Thank you for another great vacation!!
