The house is as described except better!! The pictures definitely do not do this house justice. It was very clean and well kept, with lots of small extras that came in handy. The owner was also very friendly and easy to work with. We will definitely be back

Beautiful and Relaxing

  • 5 of 5

My family decided on a beach house vacation so we starting looking to find the perfect place. We found it here! This house was beautiful and the location was perfect! If you want a relaxing vacation with a private beach this is it. If you want to venture out and do tourist type things you don't need to drive far. We drove to Pensacola one day to visit the Naval Museum and see the Blue Angels perform. We will be going back on our next family vacation.....we loved it! Note: We had a 3 yr old and 18 month with us. The 3 yr old did fine with the steps and we kept a close eye on the little guy. The pack-in-play came in handy. The owner was upfront about the stairs when I discussed the smaller kids in our partly. Thank you Petty family for opening up your vacation house!

An Oasis to be Shared

  • 5 of 5

Words are not enough to describe our journey to this amazing beach home! We can't thank the owner enough and appreciate the experience. We were blessed with a home away from home. The photos do not give justice to the beauty of the place.

This place is an oasis that needs to be shared and be experienced by families after families. The privacy of the beach is like no other. We enjoyed the sunrise walk by the beach, the kayaking (owner provided), the non-stop swimming, the out of this world dolphin watching from the wrap around balcony of the home, and the fun card games and so many story telling. They are amongst the experiences that we will all treasure for our lifetime.

We can't wait to be back!

Like the title says...this house is exceptional. In our opinion, this place should be the standard that all places should be expected to meet. From price to decor to exceeds all others. The owner is very user friendly. The pictures on the web site don't do it justice. We've stayed there twice and are planning to rent for 2 weeks next summer. If you are looking for a place for a couple groups of people or large family and love seclusion from the hoards of people then this is the place you're looking for!

Wonderful stay - gorgeous and comfortable home

  • 5 of 5

Home owner couldn't have been better and great to work with. The house was absolutely wonderful - had everything we needed and more. The pictures truly don't do this home justice. We will most definitely be back.

Truly the perfect vacation spot

  • 5 of 5

We had the best time on our vacation; this house was perfect. Close to the beach, secluded and quiet, but still very close to town and convenient to restaurants and activities. The house is beautiful; beautifully decorated and very well kept. It was a large house for just my husband and I, but we have both had back surgery and it is important that we have good beds. I selected this house because it was obvious from the pictures posted (that do not do this house justice) that the beds were nice. They ended up being VERY comfortable and added to our overall excellent experience. The owner was very nice and helpful; very easy to talk to. I would definately stay here again.
