Guestbook comments from the manager

WOW! We could not be more grateful to be first guests of this amazing home, Nifty Shades of Grey! This was truly the perfect venue for our wedding. We united 2 hearts and 2 families right in front of the steps to the beach. The home owners didn't miss a single detail in making it comfortable , organized, and incredibly well designed. Between short walks to Rosemary for dinners and the tennis courts, we rarely felt the need to leave the house. I would recommend the drive to Caliza restaurant.

It is hard to leave, but we will have lifetime memories of this very special place. Thank you, thank you, thank you!

Great property.

  • 4 of 5

Great stay, incredible views--with the exception of the drain clogs upon our arrival at the property which took several days to finally get a plumber to fix with a heavy duty machine as the drain clog was 43 foot deep--as per his "snake" dimension. All else was perfect.

Amazing Gulf views for a fun family vacation

  • 5 of 5

My family stayed in this amazing home for a summer vacation in July, where we met up with other family and friends which were also staying in the area. This home was very clean and well maintained, and decorated perfectly for a relaxing beach house feel. The balcony views provided a panoramic view of the Gulf of Mexico. We saw dolphins almost daily from the deck and the beach. The kitchen and living room area allowed my entire family to be together for meals, but it also has a lot of spaces to allow for everyone to gather outside/downstairs or in the basement TV area in smaller groups. We enjoyed the outside seating area for card games and relaxing at night, and the balcony and beach to layout and play during the day. Another feature which was AWESOME was the filtered ice machine. Sounds silly, but this was a huge plus and money saver. We were able to have filtered water and ice cubes for our drinks and adult beverages which was a huge PLUS. Overall, an gorgeous house and perfect location.

Ahhhhhhhh the beach!

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful setting and home right on the beach. We rode bikes, swam, played tennis, ate fantastic food and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. My favorite part of the house was the many outdoor living places and the panoramic views from the open kitchen dining room and living room.

Nice house with amazing beach access and views!

  • 4 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Nifty Shades of Grey. The house is very well updated and the kitchen was well stocked. The kitchen/living area offer 180 degree views of the ocean--just beautiful! Private beach access could not be more convenient. We especially loved the large outdoor dining table on the bottom deck so that we could eat dinner outside and see the beautiful ocean right there. The property management company was always helpful and very responsive.

The cons for us were: 1) there are no curtains in the bedrooms, just mini blinds. The sun came shining through every morning at 6:00 am and brightened every room to where it was difficult to continue to sleep. 2) the bedrooms are all clustered together off the main living room and kitchen--even the kids bunk room. Since there is all tile in the house, any noise echoed throughout easily. This made it difficult since our 2 yr old went to sleep much earlier than the rest of the household. 3) the beach access point is very convenient but is open to the street. There were several times during the week where people parked their cars in the driveway and run down the "private" stairway to get to the beach. This would have been fine if they weren't literally running by us as we set on the deck, ate dinner, etc. We were never sure when people may be appearing. A latched gate may be helpful to maintain more privacy.

Overall, we would recommend the property if beach access and views are most important to you.

Beachview and Oceanfront Dream vacation

  • 5 of 5

My family stayed in this fantastic beachfront home early September and the sunsets and sunrises were gorgeous. The home was very well maintained, clean, and had all the modern luxuries expected, while feeling like we were in the comfort of our own home. The panoramic balcony views were breathtaking, and the beautiful white sand beaches and emerald green waters were so clean and clear - We even saw several dolphins more than once playing in the ocean. The house is beautifully decorated, and the king sized bed in the master bedroom was extremely comfortable. The other guest bedrooms were also beautifully decorated. The location of the home is within walking distance to Rosemary Beach, tennis courts, shopping, and great restaurants. Our favorite place for breakfast is Summer Kitchen in Rosemary beach, the food is fresh and fabulous. This was the perfect vacation for great fun, food, and relaxation with the family. We will definitely choose this home again next year - we loved every minute of our stay!
