Close to everything!

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.

Everything was great!! Wonderful location and excellent amenities from the owner.

  • 5 of 5

The view was even better than we expected. We had a wonderful time. Super clean, comfy bed, and so much more. Captain Alan made sure we were ok and having a great time. He had everything we needed and more. I will definitely be returning and telling everyone about the beachcomber house. We really hated to leave but had to. Nothing like coffee on the deck first thing in the morning. Amazing!!!

Everything we needed!!

  • 5 of 5

We came to Mexico Beach to enjoy the beach without all of the tourists and craziness associated with the bigger Florida cities. We absolutely loved it! So much that we were checking out properties to buy while we were there! The house was perfect!! It had everything we needed!! Alan was very nice and understanding when my husband accidentally broke two beach chairs! My husband is even talking about coming back in October!! We had a blast and will definitely be back!! Thank you Alan for making your home available to people so can come visit your awesome beach town!!!

Shared home

  • 1 of 5

We thought we were renting a beautiful beach house but when we got there the guys vehicles and stuff were everywhere. A stranger came by and we realized the guy was living downstairs! During the day more people showed up. There was a bad smell around the house and deck. There was black mold all over the shower curtain and stains on the towels. We stayed 2 nights and had to leave.

Owner's Response: 1 have an apartment downstairs when i am here . The upstairs is completely private . my guests privacy is important you were here two days and never saw me until i saw you loading you car to leave. you never contacted me concerning any problems and were just going to leave , and if i did not refund five days of your stay you would write a negative review and contact vrbo. . There was a tiny stain on the bottom of the shower curtain and and two towels have a small stain . You are exaaggerating , i would not have 116 great reviews and two negitave if i did not take care of my guests .

Very cozy and close to the beach

  • 4 of 5

The place is nice. We are a family of 4 and really enjoyed our stay. The view of the ocean from the front porch is amazing and the walk to the beach is very short. The owner of the property lives in the lower level and was so nice an accommadating. My two girls loved talking to him everyday and showing him our beach finds.

Just what we needed.

  • 5 of 5

Quiet neighborhood beach house. Close to restaurants and shopping. Property owner Captain Alan offers discounted rates to his tenants on guided snorkeling, shell, and dive trips, He can also put you on a Kingfish if that is your into. Had a great time slept like a baby, see you next year Captain...
