Not what we expected based on past reviews.

Great location, and beautiful view of the Gulf. If the temps had been a little warmer, we would have slept with a window open to hear the surf!

The house is in need of some TLC and a thorough cleaning.

When I search reviews there are always things I look for that tells me either yes or no about a place.. So I'm going to make sure I let yall know all those details. This is directly beach front and not a long walk to the ocean.. Maybe 10-20 yards to where you would set your beach chairs up. There isn't a lot of people coming over to the beach from the street side either, so you get the private beach that you paid for. There is a shower and water hose just as you come up onto the steps that lead into the house. The porch is brand new and it's not one that gets hot like some do that burn your feet. When you enter from the deck and beach you walk straight into the living room area. The kitchen is open and is the next area you see.. The steps leasing upstairs are to your right. Once you go past the kitchen you have a door to your right and that leads outside to the stairs that lead down to where you park. There is covered parking for at least 2 vehicles on your side of the duplex. Also covered area for grilling and if enough space to set up cornhole (bags) if you wanted to play there in case of rain. There is also a storage area down there if you needed to put your things out of the way. Now back to first floor, you go past the kithen and the laundry room is to the right. Brand new washer and dryer. There is also a broom, dust pan and mop in there in case you need it. The last place we stayed we had to buy a broom to sweep the sand we tracked in (kids) but it is provided here. The full bath is the the left. And straight back is the queen size bedroom. It has its own balcony that opens to the street side and 2 double closets. Upstairs the first room has 2 twin beds (this room stays the coldest) . Then you have a full bath. Connecting to the the full bath is another bathroom, toilet, sink and closet (no shower) this has another door that connects to the master bedroom. There is also another door in the hall to the master. This view is amazing. It's Gulf front. It's own balcony and chairs. Breathtaking. We are a family of 5,3 girls ages 13,12,10 and everyone had their own space. We got married on the beach and have said that we are renting this exact house for our 5 year anniversary. The owners were great to work with. They kept us up to date on Hurricane Nate and were also quick to respond to any questions we had. We will definitely rent here again. I can't say enough about how much we loved it. Thank you for sharing your house with us. - The Robinsons

Cute house..beautiful location!

  • 5 of 5

Our family loved this house. The small toiletries were a nice touch and surprise. It was nice to be able to get through the weekend without having to rush to the store to pick up toilet paper, etc that we forgot! The house was very clean, excellent setup for our little family with everything that we would need. Deck was amazing, not one of real wood but composite. It was easy to rinse off with the kids and the could play/sit without getting splinters. Even though it is a duplex it is well insulated. The neighbors mentioned they never heard our kids, even with all the playing and running they did inside.

The house was close driving distance to anything you'd want to do and stores as well. The only thing that I would have loved was a fence around the outdoor shower. The shower is on the deck stairs as you walk up the deck. If there was a fenced shower I could have rinsed myself off better and not been worried about the neighbors seeing. But that's just a personal preference.

Overall I would stay here again in a heartbeat!
