Best Girlfriends Weekend Getaway.

  • 5 of 5

I've rented several homes on the Emerald Coast over the years from Pensacola to Mexico Beach, the "Rays of Sunshine" property is one of the best. They have thought of everything you need or maybe don't even know you need to have fun at the beach. Perfect amount of furniture inside and out, beach toys, labeled lights switches, amazingly stocked kitchen and the softest towels in a rental I've ever experienced ( so great we even looked them up to purchase for own houses). The golf cart added an extra amount of fun to our trip, riding it to Marine Park, local restaurant, pier and just around the area at sunset for breathtaking views. The walk to beach is short and most days we had it almost all to ourselves. Just sitting on the front porch each evening to watch the sunset was so peaceful and relaxing. It's rare to have a place so close to the ocean and bay for different types of water activities. Honestly, you just can't go wrong with this rental for it's location and all it offers. I will be back, maybe next month.

Great house with great views!

  • 5 of 5

The owners were so very nice to allow us to change our dates multiple times. They were very accommodating and we really appreciated it!

The home was perfect for our group. It was roomy and comfortable and so close to the beach and Bayside. We had views of the ocean and of the bay. We had everything we needed in the kitchen for cooking and grilling. We enjoyed relaxing at the beach and fishing on the bay. The golf cart was a huge help getting kids to and from the beach access.

We highly recommend this rental! We hope to return next year!

2 THUMBS UP!!!

  • 5 of 5

My family & I loved our vacation at Rays of Sunshine!! From the first to the last email with Ashley, the service was great. The golf cart was out of commission, but Ashley emailed me before we got there to tell me she had a rental one for us. We were very appreciative of that. The house is equipped with a lot more than is listed in the description. The ping pong table was a blast. Plenty of beach towels, toys & chairs. The bikes are in great condition. We got the optional package with kayaks & crab traps & are glad we did. The patio underneath the house has plenty of seating, lots of room & always has a nice breeze. Most rooms in the house have a great water view. Two evenings from the front porch we watched dolphins playing in the sound. From the deck facing the gulf we listened to the waves. There is a beach crossover not far from the house, or you can walk across the road & over a dune & the gulf is right there. The kitchen is very well stocked & the bathrooms have plenty of towels. It's like staying in your own home. It's comfortable & homey. My family & I highly recommend Rays of Sunshine!!

Great House!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at this house you can see the ocean from the back porch and its just a short 200yd walk to the beach. We will be staying here again in the future! .. Only thing that needs to be addressed is the golf cart needs new batteries they only last about 5 mins and then there dead.

Rays of Sunshine review

  • 5 of 5

This was our third time staying at the beach house. My wife and I really enjoy the layout of the house with the beautiful views out the windows. Even when we were rained in due to tropical storm Cindy I couldn't think of a better place to be. Front porch and back porch is very relaxing. I usually don't sleep through the whole night but at this house I had no problem sleeping till sunrise! Up again for an early morning bike ride or walk to the bridge. It was great!
