About Bobby Menefee

Loved the house. Short walk to the beach. Nice neighborhood.

  • 5 of 5

My family really enjoyed our stay here. The house and location to the beach were just as described. We had eight. Dining table sat 4 and 4 at the bar on stools, which was fine because we had 4 kids. The breeze sitting on the front porch was amazing. We had our breakfast on the porch. Recommend Fish Tales, Mario's, and Shrimp n Stuff for restaurants. They were all amazing. We took the kids to Pleaure Pier and it was fun. The beach area was very private just for the community, very enjoyable. Location to town was convenient, but not close enough to seem crowded. Highly recommend this house. Lots of items are provided. Only thing I would suggest is bring more bath towels. We brought towels for the beach. But, there were 8 of us and only 6 towels and 6 rags were provided. Everything in the kitchen you could possibly need. Would definitely recommend and stay here again. Very relaxing getaway. 😊

House exactly as advertised

  • 5 of 5

House was exactly as advertised. Beach was 1 block away. And most days we felt like we were the only ones on the beach. I highly recommend the property. And bobby was quite helpful answering any questions that arose. House was clean and well maintained. Perfect for our family of 6. Thanks again.

Beautiful experience!

  • 5 of 5

My expectations were not only met, but greatly exceeded. The house is located away from the "tourist" beaches, and we were able to enjoy the water without crowds. The property itself was clean, spacious, comfortable, very roomy, and accommodated five adults very well. The owner was a joy to work with, was accessible, and very responsive. I would highly recommend this property to families, and will re-visit again.

Spacious, clean, and owner is honorable!!!

  • 5 of 5

My Family and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this spacious and beautiful property! The home was very clean and well equipped and met all of our needs (even the outside grill was clean!). The home is well maintained and located VERY near the beach in a safe, friendly neighborhood (1 block away, 2 minute walk with access point right in front). Because the property had no reviews, I was concerned about my payment. I am so proud to leave an AWESOME review for the next person as this rental was completely hassle free and my deposit was returned in full! Additionally, the price was all inclusive without additional hidden cleaning fees, etc. like some other places we considered. I would encourage anyone to rent with this owner as he delivered everything he promised and we were SO delighted with his home. I would gladly stay here again, and some of my guests also said they hoped to stay here again in the future.
