Property was great close to the beach.

All the amenities you would want everything was clean and tidy. We were disappointed with all the cleaning that was required before we left or be charged. Also felt Uncomfortable with the notes left about settings on air conditioner if it malfunctioned we were responsible.

Owner's Response: Our cleaning rules are to simply "tidy the house, put all sheets and towels in the laundry hamper, wash the dishes and put them away, and take out the trash". That is not unreasonable to ask, and yes you will be charged if you do not do these things, because we include the cleaning fee in your rental and we have to pay extra if you don't do these things. As far as the air conditioner. We simply ask that you not leave the doors or windows open with the air conditioner running because it will freeze up the air conditioner and the air conditioner will not work. The air conditioner maintenance responds on their time, not ours. We are trying to prevent you from having to go without air conditioning in the hot season.

Second Wind get-away

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at Second Wind. Pretty, private beach with soft sugar sand. Each day we had a view of the dolphins pretty close to shore. Really neat to see. We got to witness the "beach life" through the eyes of a 6 and 2 year old.

The house was very clean and modern, which made our stay a "home away from home". The owners provided a journal for us to read (and make an entry) which was very helpful on "what to do and where to go" on the island. They also had a big bin below the house with all kinds of beach stuff. I believe it is stuff that other tenants have left behind (or maybe not?) but it was all there for us to use. They provide a grill and an outdoor hose and shower to wash the sand before going back into the house. Perfect set up for a fun family vacation.

A sincere Thank you to the owner's who totally know what is comfortable and what you need to spend time at an ocean front beach house. Thumbs up!!!!

Perfect Getaway

  • 5 of 5

This vacation was just what I wanted - quiet respite right on the beach. Quiet community with Appalachacola near by for some local sights. The water was a tad cool at 61 F and sunshine was short for a couple days, but other than that wonderful. I must go back soon.

Enjoyed it all

  • 5 of 5

Nicely appointed. Above average towels and linens and mattress comfort. Good space for the 8 of us except at dining table - but we crowded in. (A couple of folding chairs would have been perfect.) Not a lot of knick knacks so good for toddlers. Kitchen ware good (though I never found the can opener). Great beach with a sand bar at low tide. We could all walk to the lighthouse, etc., the five year olds and with a stroller for the 20 month olds (twins and twins!)

Beach house vacation

  • 4 of 5

We certainly enjoyed a wonderful house with fully equipped kitchen and rooms. The deck was our high point of the week. Access to beach and fun outings nearby made our stay on the island a delight. Although the tone of the owners' communication was a bit protective, all was done in a very excellent fashion. We would recommend this property. We enjoyed Harry A's and the Blue Parrot Restaurants. The golf cart was a wonderful asset. The nature center was very good, just at the end of the bridge. We challenged our family members to cook their favorite meals. That was a highlight as well.
