Great stay!!

  • 5 of 5

We had a very relaxing stay at the Burkart House. The house was very clean and was the perfect location for us. The pier had blown away from a previous storm but I was still able to fish a little while. We enjoyed watching the dolphins swim through every morning and watching the pelicans "roost' in the evening. Very nice stay indeed!! I told my husband this is definitely a repeat visit!!

Great time!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time! Thanks for sharing your beach house with us. My family grew up in the lot next door so there are great memories for us that we were able to recreate for our kids. We loved to fish off the pier and hunt hermit crabs! The deck was nice also. Convenient location and got to enjoy all of our favorite restaurants! We hope to be back soon. Thanks again.

We loved staying here!!! Hated to leave it. It was peaceful. It was very pet and kid friendly. It was a last minute get away and we couldn't have been more pleased. Wish we could rent it long term for the summer!!!!!!

Week get away for sun and shrimp.

  • 4 of 5

Two seniors + dog stayed here for a week mid February. This is great for pets. It's not as fancy as the condos, but nicely decorated and comfortable. There are 15 stairs to enter the home. The door opens to a large open living space with a good size kitchen, a dining area, a sitting area, and two sofas for TV watching. One sofa is also a bed but we didn't use it. The furniture was comfortable. The refrigerator is a side by side with a water and ice dispenser. Appliances were nice and everything worked. It took us a while to figure out the main TV because it was set to the wrong input and had multiple remotes. Two bedrooms are separated by a bath. Nothing fancy but comfortable, plenty of hot water and fulfilled our needs. We only used one bedroom, the king. Floors are all tile. Plenty of towels but the sheets weren't great...that's the rental company's issue. The laundry is in a small room off the driveway and has nice large capacity appliances, with a second bath/shower in that room. It worked for the two of us but could be an issue for more people or if bad weather. There were plenty of electrical outlets. Had a flat screen TV in each bedroom and the living area w/DVD players. Has wifi that always worked (we streamed movies with the Amazonfire we brought with us). Nice view of the bay facing south so you get sun in the winter. The deck is nice size and wraps around three sides of the house so you can find a place in sun or shade. Seating was 3 loungers, three plastic chairs and a picnic table. There is an empty lot on each side of the house and the houses on the other side of the lots were both vacant. It's all residential with little traffic. We saw great blue herons almost daily. We didn't see any dolphins but saw ducks and other birds.The south deck steps abutt the deck to the dock so walking is easy. The yard is mostly sand with wild vegetation. If you walk two blocks west there is a short sandy access road that goes to a bench facing the big bridge over the pass. It's a great place to sit and watch the boats. Just a few blocks E on Canal Rd is a nice dog park next to Ships Harbor marina. Here are my recommendation for what to bring that wasn't provided:

Hair dryer, blanket or throw (there wasn't a blanket for the sofa bed), beach towels (nice for deck chairs), baby gate for entry door so you can leave it open and pet or children can't exit.The rental company was great to work with. We got free DVDs and other perks. Would stay here again.

Last minute reservation

  • 3 of 5

Nice, quiet street on the bay with beautiful view. The main house was nice, very roomy. Info was misleading regarding second bath. It was downstairs with no ac, not an actual part of the house. Close to everything we wanted to do but out if the traffic. The rental company was great at check in.
