Perfect for our HUGE GROUP!

  • 5 of 5

What a perfect place for SO MANY PEOPLE. We really hoped to stay all together for our trip and didn't know if it was possible. Caribbean Breeze was the perfect fit. Even room for all of us during mealtimes. The owner, Brian, was so responsive to special needs before and during our trip.

We took almost daily trips into Panama City Beach to see the sights and meet up with other friends. The 15-minute drive was not bad at all. The longer we stayed, the more we fell in love with the Seacrest/Rosemary Beach area. Lovely little shops, friendly people and those pristine beaches we had nearly to ourselves.

This property is very well maintained, beautifully decorated and has ample room for even the largest of groups. Plenty of little nooks and deck space to get away from other people when you need to. The 1-minute walk (literally) to the beach is about as good as it gets.

Owner's Response: Ryan, Thank you for such a kind and generous review. The relationship between a guest and owner is two way street. You and your group were incredible guests and very easy to work with. You left the house looking better than when you arrived. We are happy that house and the area met your expectations. Yes, it is very nice having the beach so close. We would love to have you and your group back anytime. Next year contact us directly, we are able to offer great savings to direct contact guests and returning guests. Thank you again for choosing our home as your home for your spring break.

Perfect Family Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Thank you for the use of your beautiful beach house. Perfect for our large family to relax at the beach. Beach access just across the street and a private pool, you can't get any better than that. The house is fully equipped with everything you could possibly need. And the new furnishings are outstanding! We love it and can't wait until next year!

Lots of house at a great rate!

  • 5 of 5

This house was in a great location, large- lots of space and made for a great vacation with lots of people. We had 18 adults and 5 kids. Having 2 kitchens was great for mealtimes. Not a million cooks in one kitchen. Loved the pool. Lots of bedrooms- we didn't feel like we were on top of each other.

Excellent Vacation Choice!

  • 5 of 5

This was the best vacation ever for our extended family of eleven! The rental house fit our needs perfectly and was in an excellent location. Just a very short walk down to the beach and the beaches were pristine. There was plenty of parking for our 4 cars. The pool was awesome with plenty of lounge chairs around it. The kids loved it. The kitchen was well appointed with everything we needed for the week. The living room and all the bedrooms had nice flat screen TVs. I could go on and on, but overall it was just the BEST.

Very nice place directly across from the beach, the house was very clean and had everything you need

  • 5 of 5

We had our whole family down, everyone really enjoyed themselves being right across from the beach and also the option of the pool. Very kid friendly, and nice area to be in with everything only a few minutes away

Great location. Had some issues with plumbing, dryer, bed and pool chairs.

  • 4 of 5

The house, as billed, is very convenient to the beach. This is the best feature of the house. There is plenty of parking which is nice. We did however have several issues:

The dryer ran for over three, almost four hours without drying a load of towels. This was fixed on Wednesday after the vents were vacuumed out.

The shower in the master bedroom had very low pressure and erratic temperature. This was reported on Monday and resolved on Thursday (really in the evening because the breaker was not turned back on and took a while for water to heat up.)

I slept in a small bedroom with a very creaky, not very comfortable bed. The owner informed me that he ordered a tempurpedic replacement which unfortunately would not be delivered until after our stay (Aug 22 - Aug 29).

All five chaise chairs poolside were cracked. Was informed by the owner that he ordered new chaise lounges but they would not be delivered until after our stay.

Other than a few other minor issues everything else was fine.

The location is great. Right across from a beach access. Could not be closer.

The house is functional. Not fancy, not junky, serves the purpose.

The owner seemed very responsive and concerned over the defects reported. I have asked for the owner to review the price we paid mostly based on the fact that the family occupying the master bedroom suite did not have full and functional use of their shower until Thursday evening which was the sixth night (of 7) into our stay.

I do appreciate the owners quick response and willingness to take steps to resolve the issue.

Owner's Response: This guest was extremely helpful, very cordial but ultimately wanted a discount. This guest contacted us late on Monday afternoon on the 3rd day of their stay. I immediately addressed all of their issues.The dryer vent was cleaned in less than 4 business hours. The hot water issue with 1 shower in the house was resolved in under 12 business hours. The chaise lounges each had a very small hairline crack in them that did not effect their use. Nevertheless I have replaced the chaises. After further inspection of the full size bed the bolts from the frame to the headboard just needed tightened. I contacted the 2 prior guests and 2 guests immediately following this reviewer. All 4 groups concurred that the bed, chaises, and dryer vent were perfectly fine for their visit. One group responded - " The mattress was not the most comfortable mattress she had ever slept on but for a weeks of vacation it was nothing to be complaining about. The bed did creak when they moved some but she said it never entered her mind to complain about such things!" One group did state the hot water valve was "slightly confusing" but worked perfectly fine for them during their stay once they read the supplied guest information sheets. In their own words, the reviewer was to accustom "staying in top of the line places ". Luxury homes and luxury resorts are available in Alys beach, Rosemary Beach, Watersound and Watercolor at 2 to 3 times our rental rate. Our home is a traditional Florida beach home that is a great value for its quality, size, and proximity to the beach. In summary this guest was dissatisfied with the level of luxury of our home and wanted a discount.
