Surfside 1 proved to be a great fit for our family. We had 10-12 people on different days with room for everyone. Being able to have everyone under one roof without putting 4-6 to a room helped make our stay so comfortable. You are only 15-30 minutes from shopping, casinos, parks etc. We found the house clean with adequate linens and towels. The kitchen is set up to allow both several cooks and little ones running around at the same time. The pantry stored everything we brought easily. My only complaint was that the coffee maker could be updated. The views are wonderful and the we loved having our own little beach. The two front upstairs bedrooms (both with en suite baths)have fantastic views and we enjoyed watching the sun come up and set from the deck. The other two upstairs rooms have a connecting bath which worked well for family with little ones. The only down side is also why the views are so wonderful: there are a lot of stairs! Everyone enjoyed our time there to the point of already planning a repeat visit.
We had a delightful time celebrating Christmas with our four children, spouses and grandchildren. The Surfside I house was very spacious and we were happy to have adequate bed space for everyone. The kitchen was very nice, with it's preparation island and wraparound serving bar. With the twelve of us staying three nights, the refrigerator got packed full, but it worked flawlessly and we seemed to have enough ice from the ice maker for everyone. The shelf space in the pantry was fantastic for holding all the food supplies we brought.
The shower in the master bedroom was awesome! It was great to have lots of water pressure, and the water was plenty hot enough for everyone. Having TV's in several bedrooms in addition to the big one in the downstairs living room was great for the various couples and kids. Having a laundry chute to drop things for washing directly to the laundry room from upstairs was a nice feature.
The big recliner in the living room was super comfortable; we only regret that we never discovered how to make it recline! While it was good to have WiFi Internet service, renters need to know that the Internet speed is very slow. Having a local telephone in the house was a great touch, making it easy for us to order pizza. On Christmas Eve we weren't able to get Pizza Hut to deliver, but Domino did come!
The house was lovely, and the view of the Gulf was simply spectacular! We enjoyed the quiet surroundings and private beach, while being relatively close to stores and restaurants when needed.
We have rented homes from Home Away many times, in several countries, and I have to say that this was one of our most delightful family vacation getaways. We highly recommend the Surfside I property to families or groups that need several bedrooms and lots of space for everyone!
This is a gorgeous home. If you are looking for a quiet time away from crowds then this is your place. Located in quiet neighborhood, close to plenty of restaurants and bars. Also very close to Biloxi.
Ocean Springs is an artist community. Be sure to visit the Walter Anderson Museum and the Mary C. O'Keefe Cultural Center located downtown. There are wonderful shops, great restaurants, local theater, Saturday fresh market and much more.
