Family of friends and kids enjoyed paradise

  • 5 of 5

If you forgot it, it's probably there. We definitely overpacked. These accommodations had it all, chairs, umbrellas, toys, and everything you need to enjoy a day at the beach. The outdoor shower is amazing. We were comfortable and very pleased. We caught glimpses of dolphins during the day and shooting stars at night. Don't hesitate on booking. You won't regret staying in this home.

The property is Such a comfortable family atmosphere

  • 5 of 5

We loved the Bamboo House. It was everything we could have asked for. My husband and I; plus My sister and brother, along with their spouses and 3 children among us, all enjoyed family time on the beach as well as hanging out and cooking together at the house. We watched fireworks for the 4th of July on the top deck; we did a shrimp boil one night; grilled one evening and spent lots of time on the beautiful beach. It was my sister in laws First time swimming in the Ocean, an adventure she will never forget!! The kids found lots of pretty shells and my 12 yr son did a little fishing. It was so fun and relaxing, we never even went out to eat or anything. We hope to do this again and make it an annual trip. Thank you Bamboo House, true Southern Hospitality with a back home sort of feel.

Great place!

  • 5 of 5

Even though we stayed here through Tropical Storm Cindy- this was a great vacation! We were a little nervous about flooding but there was none. The house had everything we needed- and we cooked a lot. There is a grill, charcoal, lighter fluid and plenty of dishes and cooking utensils. There are coffee filters, detergent and even ziplock bags! Don't bring towels, there are tons! Andrea was super helpful and quickly answered all my questions via text. Plenty of room for a family of five. Lots of beach toys (floaties, shovel, skim board, boogie boards, nets, baby pool, swim noodles) and inside toys (Mr. Potato head, monopoly, a car ramp set...), books, games and movies for kids. There is even a pack and play. The screened in porch was wonderful. We would definitely stay here again! Thank you Bamboo Beach House!

A beautiful home right on the beach. We rented another house down the road as well ... and this was the house everyone hung out at. Will definitely book again for future vacations.

No brainer! Book this home!

  • 5 of 5

This is my first online review ever. I use reviews but have never felt compelled to write one until now. All of the ingredients for a great trip are here!

Bamboo was a perfect fit for our party of 13 - 8 adults, 5 kids (6mo, 3, 3, 5, 7 yo). We put 2 adults in the crows nest, 2 adults + 1 pack-and-play in lower queen BR, 2 adults + 1 pnplay + 1 toddler in full BR w/futon, 2 adults + 2 kids in master BR. One pnplay on site at Bamboo in perfect condition. We rented another pnplay and a bouncy seat for the 6 mo old from a local service. We relocated a mattress from a sofa pull-out to the spacious master for the 5 and 7 year old kids.

We shopped for food at Publix, a grocery store in Gulf Breeze (about 10 min away by car). Loads of prep space in kitchen. Kitchen is open to living space so very social time prepping and cooking meals. Not to mention, beach view is fantastic. Plenty of pots, pans, storage containers, dishes and utensils, even wine glasses! We loved having a grill. Smallish charcoal grill took awhile to heat and cook for big group, but all the grilling accessories/tools one could dream of including grill baskets.

We made use of great set of binoculars to watch a Blue Angel fly-by, a rainbow, windsurfers, sea birds. We liberally used flashlights to explore the beach at night finding crabs. Skimboards, wakeboards, pool noodles, a tentlike beach shelter, beach umbrellas, tons of chairs and beach towels, toy box full of fun on back porch all made available.

W&D so handy especially with small kids. Extra fridge w/ freezer in the garage for ice, icey beverages and more. Outdoor shower with warm water, oh la la.

We realized after a few days of hunting shells, that finding intact shells and sand dollars is so difficult! It must take years of tireless committed beachcombing to accumulate the type and number of intact and unique shells at Bamboo. The family's collection is a treasure trove! How the shells are incorporated is also tasteful and beautiful.

We brought a Bose wireless speaker to play off our phones and lived on the incredible back porch. The back porch swing got tons of use.

We love this home. It is cheerful, inviting and perfectly appointed. It is one special place.

Outstanding Beach House!

  • 5 of 5

Location and layout of the house made it perfect for our family reunion. The master bedroom is large and comfortable and the open kitchen and great room made for great conversation with our large family.
