** If you would like to have your pool heated, we kindly ask that you please contact Beach House Real Estate at least 10 days prior to your arrival so that it ensures us ample time to fulfill your request. We do offer pool heat as needed as a courtesy to our guests at no additional charge. All of our pools and pool equipment are closely monitored by the pool company for your safety, we kindly ask that the controls not be tampered with- most of the systems are locked for this reason. Due to the island's strict 10pm noise ordinance, the pool heaters will not run overnight. Please remember, outdoor spas are not hot tubs (some properties have a spa, some have a hot tub). Generally speaking, our winter months are considered from November through April. During these months we do our best to ensure that the pools are heated to a temperature of 82 degrees. However, please be aware that even in Central Florida we do occasionally get cold spells that can send the temperatures down into the 30's for a few nights in a row. This will cause the pool water temperature to draw down to in the 70's and a pool pump will automatically shut down if the outside temperature gets too cold. The pump will then kick back on in the morning and begin re-heating of the pool back to 82, which may take several days depending on the severity of the cold spell. Ultimately, these situations are beyond our control. Other issues such as severe weather conditions, equipment malfunction, temporary loss of use of equipment or amenities due to maintenance purposes or other items do happen for time to time. Please know that in the rare event of pool equipment malfunction during your stay,  Beach House Real Estate will do everything in our power to expedite repairs as quickly as possible as we certainly want you to enjoy your heated pool and Florida sunshine to the fullest extent possible!

We stayed the week of 5/28 (Memorial Holiday)...cannot provide enough praises!! My entire family enjoyed it immensely! The ONLY thing they did not provide was a cook/butler and a maid...everything you can imagine (and more) was there...the pool was awesome, the set up was perfect for my large family. The reservation process, very easy...thanks for helping us create wonderful memories!

LOVE The house and location

  • 5 of 5

We went for 5 nights with my 18 month old son and it was the easiest vacation we have had with him! The beach was so close, we would walk home for naps and let him sleep while we lounged in the pool. The house is immaculate and some amazing restraunts were a short walk away(also easy access with a stroller). I would def come back for a week with the family or with my girlfriends!

Just perfect

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed here for a getaway with another couple. It was perfect. Easy access to beach and close to Pine Street where there are plenty of shops and restaurants. The owners provide bikes and it is an easy ride. The beach is just beautiful, probably one of the prettiest I've ever seen. The pool was great. We drank our coffee and read poolside every morning. The kitchen is well stocked, although with all the nice restaurant choices we didn't do much cooking! We would definitely go back!
