Guestbook comments from the manager

Happy Talk is the perfect vacation home! Right on the beach, close to Seaside, right next to our favorite bike rental and across the street from several of our favorite eating spots! We vacation in the Seaside area every year with 2 other families and their kids, total people average 12-14, and this vacation home was the best suited for our group by far for us! There's plenty of room throughout the house, the home is very nicely decorated and has been kept in really good condition, very clean! The kitchen was well stocked with dishes, bathrooms had plenty of towels. All of the bedrooms were furnished wonderfully, beds were comfortable and there was plenty of storage so we could unpack and basically feel as though we were home!

We truly enjoyed our time in Happy Talk plan to reserved again next year for our friends summer vacation.

Perfect Gulf Front Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

Just wrapped up a couples retreat in this absolutely gorgeous home. There were 7 couples total and we had plenty of room in this huge house. The two living areas with the open kitchen made it easy for all of us to be together and we never once felt crowded because this home is so spacious. On warmer nights we got to enjoy the beautiful outdoor living area and watching the sunset over the gulf from the balconies was breathtaking. This luxurious house had everything we could have needed and we have absolutely nothing negative to say about it!
