Awesome family vacation!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of four vacationed here and we loved it, it was the ideal place to stay. The last three years we've stayed at resort type properties. Never again! No elevators, no crowded pool, no worrying if you're too loud or if the kids are disturbing the people below. The walk to the beach was actually shorter from this house than it was at one of the resort places we stayed. The walk to the beach is exactly as described, short. This house suited our needs perfectly. The covered/screened porch is a huge plus. The private pool was extremely convenient and the kids loved it. The house is the perfect size where you feel close but definitely has room for many more than four. We will be coming back. Lastly, Lisa is very quick to communicate with if you need to reach her.

Great Family getaway

  • 4 of 5

We were first timers to this very nice local area. The house was just what we were looking for and very close to the beach. Having the pool was a lifesaver, especially since a storm hit land and no one was able to swim at the beach the majority of our stay. It's not too far from food, shopping, etc. Lisa was easy to work with a responded quickly. We would definitely return!

Great Vacation House

  • 5 of 5

It was our family of 6 and this house was just the right size. It is in a great location at the end of a quiet street but still walking distance to the beach. The house was spotlessly clean and well stocked. What my kids liked most of all was the pool. After a day at the beach you can relax by the pool. The owner is real easy to work with and responds to all queries quickly. I would recommend this house to anyone who wants a great vacation at a reasonable price.

Lovely Family Vacation.

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at the Southern Wind. The house is situated at the dead end of the street. Very quiet location to relax and enjoy the private pool. The house is in walking distance to the beach, bike path, restaurants, shops, and the ice-cream/bike rental shop. The owner was easy to get a hold of to answer questions about the property. We loved Santa Rosa Beach and found it not too crowded.

Owner extremely professional and easy to work with! House was perfect for our family vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our family vacation. The house was very well-maintained, stocked with everything we needed and only a short five minute walk to the beach. We loved Santa Rosa Beach and wouldn't hesitate to stay here again! The owner was extremely professional and even returned our phone call within 45 minutes one evening during our stay, when we had a question. Highly recommended!
