Close to everything!

  • 5 of 5

The Beachcomber is a comfortable, clean beach house with a very nice view and just a short walk to the beach. The house was well stocked, and Alan was a very helpful host. My mother and I thoroughly enjoyed our girl trip.

Awesome Vacation At Mexico Beach ...

  • 5 of 5

This is our first time at Mexico Beach . We loved it .... Alan the owner

was waiting on us to arrive and he was so helpful . He told us where

to find the best restaurants . He supplied us with 2 bicycles that

we rode to get breakfast and dinner . The beach was a short walk

that took only 5 minutes . The beach house was really nice and so

clean with full ocean views . The neighborhood was very quiet with

little traffic . We were the only ones on the beach most of the time .

We had everything we needed for a really great time . We are looking forward to going back next year . Thank you Alan

for a GREAT vacation .

Sincerely ,

Beverly from Northeast Georgia

Totally Impressed

  • 5 of 5

When my friend and I walked into Alan Sligh's beachcomber; wow! His upstairs house was so spacious and clean. The quaint deck with rustic rockers faced the most beautiful ocean view we've ever seen. Captain Alan was the most gracious and knowledgeable host. Always willing to lend a hand when needed. Our privacy and comfort or his main concerns. We will definitely be staying here again.

I'll be back!

  • 5 of 5

The beachcomber, Alan Sligh's newly remodeled vacation home has everything you need. Whether cooking or relaxing on your private deck you're always surrounded with a breathtaking view of the Gulf of Mexico. Alan is the most accommodating host by providing you with all the extras; from beach supplies, bikes, directions and stories from the past. I will be back.

Best vacation yet!

  • 5 of 5

Loved this house! Had everything that we needed and more. Captain Alan was more than accommodating and very hospitable! He had everything we needed...and offered more. Let our buddy borrow several fishing poles just so he didn't have to go buy one just for the trip! House was spotless and exactly as advertised, even more beautiful in person. You will not regret staying at the beachcomber. We will most definitely be returning to this beautiful property. If you are coming to stay with friends, you will definitely leave with another one. Captain Alan is the best!!!
