Just as described. Perfect location and view of the water.

  • 5 of 5

The house was clean and just as the owner described. We had a couple small problems while staying, but the owner responded right away and they were fixed hassle free and quickly. You can walk straight from the house to the ocean in 60 seconds. The house felt very much like home for the week. We had 8 adults and 3 small children stay and we all fit perfectly. I would definitely stay here again.

Property was as it was described and the owner was prompt and very accommodating.

  • 5 of 5

My family enjoyed our time in the house and had a wonderful vacation. The house had plenty of space and was very clean. The close proximity to the beach on the gulf was great, as it only took us three minutes to get out the door and onto the beach. The house had a good variety of household items in the kitchen and we didn't have any concerns. The owner was very prompt when we had some trouble connecting to the wifi and she was able to clear that up in the matter of minutes. We only had one other concern and that was taken care of with in a day.

There was even a good supply of sand toys, chairs, and items to make you beach experience a pleasant one.

If we take another trip to the Gulf Shore we would happily stay at the property agin.
