Very Comfortable

  • 4 of 5

My family (5 adults, 18 mon old, and three dogs fit comfortably in this home. We had plenty of towels and clean bedding. The beach area was easy to use and was clean. It was nice to sit and watch the boat traffic. I would not recommend this waterway for older kids who are not strong swimmers. The current is very strong. The rental provided a grill so outside use of decks and tables was enjoyable. There is a hodge podge of kitchen ware. There is no crock pot so I would recommend bringing one. We brought a pack and play as well as a travel high chair thankfully since those are not provided. Over all very comfortable home. The carpets in the bedrooms feel and look grimy. We simply wore slippers. I would have no issue renting this home again.

Great family vacation!

  • 5 of 5

Everything was as advertised. That really makes a difference when you get what you are expecting. The kids had fun on the low wave beach; Gulf beach access was easy and a short drive. The dead end road had almost no traffic and the area felt very safe. Our dogs were happy to be along. We blocked off their egress from the deck and they got all the free outside time they wanted(it was very hot). Kayak paddling out front and bikes out the back. We got a slip at the close by Holiday Marina for the boat. All and all a great family vacation.

Location is excellent, close to Johnson Beach, food and naval museum

  • 4 of 5

House is a little old but layout is very comfortable only regret that the bedroom mattress is a little soft/needs replacing.

Best thing is ability to go directly out to beach from backyard, bbq on deck. Open concept kitchen living room is very big.

This place is truly a home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay! This property is in the perfect location and the neighbors are super friendly. The house had everything we needed and more. Every question was answered within 3 hours via email and the service was impeccable. We will definitely be staying here again and/or telling all our friends to stay here!
