4 bedroom 2 full bath, super close the beach fully updated and all new linens

Bring your flip flops, beach toys and swimsuits and relax at Steps to the Sand. This fully furnished 4 bedroom 2 full bath updated home recently featured on a popular HGTV show has two master bedrooms one with a king bed and pull out sofa and the other with a queen. We were also fortunate to have escaped Harvey without damage so our was not involved in any flooding. We have two bunk rooms for the kids one with a double twin bunk bed plus trundle and the other with a twin bed plus trundle. New stainless steel appliances, updated cabinetry and solid surface counter tops appoint the kitchen located off the dining area. Unlike some of the houses we provide the normal items like a full set of real pots and pans, Ninja blender for smoothes, full set of stoneware plates and cups, plastic beach glasses, spices and condiments, coffee maker and coffee, bbq/smoker and you wont be short on the little things like bath towels, paper towels, toilet paper or garbage bags. If you want to prepare a full dinner, bbq your fresh catch or just wake up to a full size pot of coffee we have you covered. We also provide beach chairs and a few sand toys for the kids that you are welcome to use while your stay. We will consider 2 or 3 night stays on Sunday thru Wednesday night or if only 2-3 night stays are left available because of previously booked reservations.The system will not allow you to book online for stays shorter than what is stated on the website so give us a call if you are interested and we will let you know if we can accommodate your stay. We include the use of our 6 seat gas golf cart with proper insurance for guests with a drivers license and over 21. For reference on the value the golf cart adds to your stay, local golf cart rentals are $175-$200 per day for a six seat cart that will be a few years older and you have to wait in line to get it all set up. The quickest way to the beach on those busy weekends and events is to walk down the private boardwalk and in less than 5 minutes you can park yourself on the beach and start to unwind. After you get done at the beach or for the sports fans that can't miss a game we have a 50" flat-screen in the main living area with surround sound plus flat screens in all the bedrooms. We have full cable, dvd player, HBO and Netflix plus "real" high speed internet for catching up on work items and streaming your favorite music. We have an fully enclosed outdoor shower located behind the front steps to wash off the beach you brought back. The back patio area with a table, umbrella and 8 chairs that is lushly landscaped with hibiscus and gardenia. Our rule on the back patio is the first one in the hammock wins and although we don't count that as a bed it is perfect for reading a book or taking a quick cat nap. Bring a brisket, ribs and your favorite wood chips and you can smoke till your hearts desire on our full size pit.

Our calendar is always up to date so if you are looking for a last minute trip or looking at 6 months from now you can book it now with confidence. If you need to ask about golf cart usage policy or are looking for a last minute booking feel free to contact us by phone or email, if we don't answer on the first call we will return calls and emails in an hour. We do ask that someone over 25 book and stay at this property for the duration of the rental and are interested in renting to responsible families. Our home is well maintained, handy to the beach, close to down town and perfectly suited for two families with children.

We do allow some pets but please shoot us an email, text or give us a call before booking. There is room for a dog but if you have more than that it's best to send them on their own vacation ;)

                                                            Great place

                                                            chris c.

                                                            We had a great Easter weekend. The house was spotless and perfect for family of teenagers. We were very impressed with the location and golf cart. We would definitely stay again.

                                                            Our arrival to the property was great; it exceeded our expectations

                                                            April A.

                                                            The property was clean and stocked for all your needs other than perishables (outside of coffee /tea /creamers/ sugar/ some spices/ flour/ oil). We felt like we were at home right from the start. The attentive communication with property owners was greatly appreciated.

                                                            Great location, loved the house & golfcart!!

                                                            Fantastic beach house

                                                            Alejandra S.

                                                            We definitely enjoyed our stay here. The house is beautiful and very comfortable.

                                                            By far the cleanest and most well stocked vacation home we've ever stayed in

                                                            Murrell B.

                                                            We had three families staying in this home. The golf cart was a life saver and the dedicated board walk was a good extension of service. We highly recommend this rental. The owner provided instant communication and feedback for any questions and we were thoroughly impressed. Thanks again Brian!

                                                            Best Family Vacation!!!
