Fabulous 4 bedroom gulf front property with sweeping views of the gulf coast from the living space and bedrooms, this property is not to be missed. Just steps from Alys Beach and minutes from Rosemary Beach the location of this property is hard to beat.

There is a large open plan kitchen with GE Profile stainless appliances and beautiful white silestone countertops and dining area that makes entertaining a breeze. The living room is large and comfortable and has a flat screen TV for cozy nights in and a Blue-ray DVD player and Wii to keep everyone entertained.
The downstairs opens out on to a large deck with outdoor patio space, propane BBQ, and patio furniture for outdoor entertaining, you can eat breakfast and dinner listening to the wave’s rock backwards and forwards down on the beach. There is a large downstairs bedroom with queen bed and ample closet space.
Upstairs has two magnificent bedrooms that face the beach each with patio access to a large deck with majestic views of the gulf, there is no better place to sit and watch the sunset each evening. The master bedroom has a king bed with private closet and bathroom. There is a large flat screen TV in the master bedroom. The second guest bedroom has a queen bed with closet and shares the jack and jill bathroom.

Comfortable house. Cannot beat the view! Easy bike ride or walk to Alys or Rosemary. Definitely want to return!
We stayed the month of May. It was a nice property, great location. A little trouble getting response back from management but would recommend this property and stay here again.
This was by far the best home I have ever rented! Beachfront made for a great view!
Our family has been vacationing on 30A for the last 20 years, and of all of the beach homes we have rented, this is by far my favorite. The interior is immaculate and after sending photos to friends and family, I was asked if I was the decorator. I am a decorator which translates to "picky" and I LOVED the simplicity. The views were amazing, and we happened to choose the 4 warmest days of this November week! A lovely surprise on our second morning from Sandpiper Rentals was a dozen donuts and milk from The Donut Hole. Very thoughtful, thank you, thank you! This trip was just for my husband and I, but we look forward to bringing our daughters next time. LOVED THIS HOME! Thank you to the owners for your tasteful and un-tacky beach decor. This was also the first time we saw schools of stingrays swimming directly on the shoreline. Absolutely gorgeous.
We just got back after staying for 6 days and we truly loved it. The pics are exactly the real thing but I think even prettier when you see the views, hear the ocean and smell of the sea!! It is about 1/8 of a mile from Alys beach (same beach but different development so to speak). The house is beautiful and definitely loved the decor. It is be achy without being cheesy. The color palette is relaxing. When you walk into the door, you instantly know you are on vacation. What I like about the house is that it is furnished and decorated without feeling like you are at somebody else's home. There were 5 adults and 4 children and size of the home is perfect. We never felt cramped! We cooked a lot and the large island was a hit. It was also a well stocked kitchen. It is right on the beach, a short distance to Alys and Rosemary beach, both within walking distance. The house came with a fireplace but we weren't sure if this was purely decorative. We would have loved to use it because the temperature fluctuated so much the week we were there. Overall, I would definitely rent this
luxurious house again.
My family (2 year old, wife, and myself) stayed at this property from August 14, 2013 - August 21, 2013. The location of this house would be hard to beat. It is right on the water with easy access to the beach. As far as logistics go, it was nice to be able to walk right up the stairs to put our daughter down for a nap. There was never a need to pack everything up and haul it back home because of the location. The house has been remodeled recently and was very clean, spacious, and accommodating. My wife and I stayed in the master bedroom because the walk in closet in the master bedroom was a perfect spot to put our pack and play for our daughter to nap and sleep in. There are 3 things that the owner and property management company might consider. These were the only negatives we found. 1. the doors to the bedrooms upstairs that lead to the balcony leak when it rains. We had a couple days where it rained all day. After the first rain, we noticed the carpet in our bedroom was wet. Other than the carpet starting to stain because of this, the only other damage was to my computer. 2. the back door to the back patio was very hard to close completely and lock (not major) 3. The back porch does not provide shelter from rain, only sun. This would have been nice to be able to sit on, even during the rain because a 2 year old can't be cooped up all day. Rain falls straight through the wood boards on the second level. It didn't ruin our trip by any means, it just would have been nice to have the back porch overlooking the ocean (the main reason we came) provide protection from the rain.
Overall, we enjoyed our stay. I would consider the house again depending on if the 3 issues above are fixed. For the amount we paid, we didn't expect to have those problems, but now we know.
Pros: washer and dryer, dishwasher, spacious, comfortable beds, open kitchen, sufficient cooking equipment and utensils, sleeps 10 comfortably, great location, pretty views, recently remodeled or decorated, covered garage
Cons: doors leak, back door is hard to close, back patio can't be used if it is raining.
