Great Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We had the best time at this home. It is all one level and was perfect for our family with 3 young children. The porch was great and we enjoyed relaxing and eating meals on it. The house is a short walk to everything. You will not be disappointed.

This house exceeded all of our expectations! It is beautiful and perfect! We had so much fun staying in SOME LIKE IT HOT! My only regret is that I didn't book sooner for this season! We are envious of whoever will stay in this beautiful home for spring break! Everything was clean, well maintained, and beautifully decorated. Great street, my boys made some good friends that they still keep in touch with. The screened in porch is a great perk! Thank you for such a blessed time with family in your home. We are SO SAD that we didn't book sooner for this year.

Pictures don't do this house justice!

  • 5 of 5

I'm not sure how they fit this much space in a small ranch but this house is huge inside! There are four generous sized bedrooms and an awesome open living space with everything you need for a relaxing vacation. There are also porches off the front and back. The front porch, a screened porch with lots of room and seating, was one of our favorite spots to hang out. I can't recommend this house enough!

Perfect Beach House

  • 5 of 5

This home far exceeded our expectations for aesthetics, location, layout, and overall comfort. It truly felt like a home in terms of creature comforts, and as other reviewers mentioned, the floor plans makes it perfect for sharing with others. The minute we got inside we were imagining future gatherings with parents and larger family groups that include our young grandchildren. The week we spent here was so wonderful - we explored beach towns that included great food options (Summer Kitchen, George's, Bruno's, Modica Market, Amavida for coffee!), walked everywhere, swam in the gorgeous water and walked the beaches at sunset up and down 30A (Sunset Beach, Grayton, Seaside, Deer Lake), and ended the evening swimming in the peaceful lagoon pool a few steps away. We lived on the front porch morning and night. The neighborhood is adorable and impeccably maintained and everyone we ran into was friendly - the whole area was full of families having fun.

We've only been home for a week and cannot wait to plan our next trip back. If you want a relaxing and classic beach vacation, with all the comforts of home, we cannot think of a better spot! Thank you Diana for a wonderful stay and for your prompt response to our last minute arrangements!

By the lake

Great time by all

  • 5 of 5

Some Like It Hot is actually better in "person" than the photos depict. Our group of five loved the decor of the interior and how the home was laid out. It's very easy for the group to be together in the kitchen and family area, and also have our own privacy within the house. We rented bikes and rode to alot of local establishments for excellent dining and shopping. The doughnut truck was a huge hit with the group...and quick 10 minute bike ride going west on 30 A.

The mixture of the beach to start the day and the lagoon pool to cap off the afternoon was very relaxing and so fun to take advantage of both.

So much to see and do in the locale, or just do nothing at all but relax and read a good book.

We hope to return soon!

You Wont Regret Staying at "Some Like it Hot"

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at "Some Like it Hot" for the past two summers and plan to return in the future. We booked sight unseen the first year and were not disappointed. Diana answered all of our questions and made us feel very comfortable before we left. Each time that we arrived the house was clean and exactly as described on the website. While we have not experienced any major issues on either of our vacations, anytime we needed to get a hold of Diana she was always accessible and took care of whatever we needed. Also, after our stays, the security deposit was refunded in a timely manner.

The ranch house is excellent for families w/ small kids. The location is unbeatable as it is a short walk to the pool and even the beach (although we usually use the tram which starts at 9 AM). We 'google mapped' the distance and were actually surprised how short of a walk it was as compared to the google description. Our favorite part about the house is the big screened in (most houses do not have this) front porch.

Our experiences in booking the stay and with the house itself have been great. I am confident that you wouldn't regret staying at anytime throughout the year.
