                                                        TonyFreeport, Pa

                                                        We were looking for a quiet relaxing place to stay, and boy did we pick the right place! From the nice lay out of the home, to walking across your yard, to wade in the Gulf, everything is great. Lois is great, not only did she answer my questions, but did so quickly. The place is kept in great shape, and clean! Our Welshie had more fun than I think we did! Will we return again, Lord willing, but maybe longer the next time.

                                                        Fantastic sunsets & sunrises!

                                                        R & PTallahassee, FL

                                                        We have stayed here many times and have never been disappointed. It is a great place to relax and escape the hustle and bustle of your daily life.

                                                        NoneFayetteville GA

                                                        I fish for Speckled Trout and have stayed at Life's A Beach for a week every June for the last 4-5 years. It's a great property for this (and other pursuits) as a marina with lunching ramp is only a few blocks away and the trout are abundant on this stretch of the coast. It's quiet and peaceful and I have never experienced anything but 100% satisfaction in all aspects with the property and especially with the owners who are the nicest of nice folks. I and my family regard it as our home away from home for a week every June and will continue to do so as long as it's available!

                                                        A Piece of Paradise!

                                                        Janet C.Navarre, FL

                                                        My husband and I, along with our 2 pups, stayed at Life's a Beach for a week. If you are looking for some privacy and R&R on the water, this is the place! The home is bright and breezy with awesome views from sunrise to sunset! It comes equipped with most everything you'll need. There is a local IGA for groceries and a few restaurants - the Fisherman's Wife or Fathom's for steamed shrimp right off the boats. Or you can buy it fresh at Millender & Son's Seafood Market and cook it yourself. Although we did visit St. George's Island about 30 minutes away, we preferred to spend most of our time at home on our own private beach! There's only one thing wrong with “Life's a Beach”. You never want to leave! Thanks so much for your hospitality Lois! We sure hope to come back soon!

                                                        Just what we were looking for

                                                        Drew W.

                                                        We were looking for a place with nicer weather than NC in February that we could bring the dogs and drive to in one day and decided to try here. It's a great house with a wonderful location. For us the very low population density of this region is a great plus. The view from the front of the house and the deck is hard to beat. We went out on the deck every evening to watch the sun set and were treated to the additional treat of watching the moon rise over the water to the southeast. The next to the last night was a full moon, gorgeous. There is very little light pollution at night so the view of the stars is wonderful. The house is comfortable, clean and has mostly everything you'll need. Lois is very easy to work with and quite responsive. The area has lots of nature trials and is extremely dog friendly. The dogs and I had a nice walk on the beach in front of the house every day. Carrabelle is only a few minutes away and though not fancy the IGA and Dollar General have a decent selection of necessities. Millender's Seafood is a nice resource for fresh fish, crab and an outstanding smoked mullet dip. The Fisherman's wife restaurant got our business several times, again not fancy but good food. St George Island and Apalachicola are a little less than a half hour away with more nice restaurants and shops. The Owl Cafe and Oyster City Brewing Co. are worth visits. We stayed two weeks and could easily have been happy staying longer.

                                                        Quiet house on the beach

                                                        Joan G.

                                                        My husband, daughter, dog and I stayed at "Life's A Beach" for five days. We didn't really know what to expect when we got there. The house was literally right on the beach! The view was perfect from the deck. I would just sit there and read or hold my daughter. There was a fire pit down by the beach which I loved. P.S. Bring your own firewood or get some at the store before you get to the house. There was a charcoal grill to use as well, which my husband and I made some steaks on! Our dog loved the beach! It is very private, so we didn't have to leash him. Perfect for dogs who love the water!

                                                        Overall, we had a great time at this house. If you're looking for a "getaway", this is the place. It is at least 35-45 minutes away from the busy town. If you need supplies, get them before you get to the house. There IS hiking to do around the area. This is a great rental to just relax at!

                                                        The one dislike I have about this property is that you have to clean up before you leave. I did not carefully read the contract, which states you must leave the property as you found it. If you don't want to pick up the house before you leave, do not rent it. This was my only dislike.

                                                        So, if you're looking for a very quiet getaway, this is the place for you!

                                                        Thank you Lois for letting us use your house! We had a great time!

                                                        Beautiful home on the gulf with beach frontage. Spend time relaxing on the upper porch watching wildlife and boating.
