Public access to the beach is located within the neighborhood. Up to 10 guests can sleep in the three bedrooms and additional pull-out couch.

Perfect house with close access to the beach
We truly enjoyed our stay at this house. It was decorated well and very clean. The walk to the beach was nice and short. Hope to return soon!
Nice Long Weekend Vacation
The house easily accommodated our family of six. It was nicely decorated and had all the necessities for our weekend get away. A nice feature is the elevator, which helped us old folks get up to the living area without climbing stairs. A couple of minor drawbacks: Beach access was by public access across the dunes located 5 lots distance up the street. Houses across the street on the beach front had fencing and no trespassing signs to keep one from taking a short cut to the beach. It was noted that the house had no wifi or cable tv. Not noted was no antenna so no over-the-air tv either. However we overcame that by hooking up a smart phone to the tv and streaming Netflix etc. via cell connection. But these were minor drawbacks. Overall it was a good beach house in a quiet neighborhood.
Big Minus - We arrived to what appeared to be a clean house, until we started opening kitchen cabinets to look for cooking utensils, pots and pans. Whomever who had cleaned the house prior to our stay had put away dirty dishes and ignored significant insect remnants in lower cabinets. Everything we needed had to be hand washed before using. Cannot say whether problem was with VRBO or owner.
Overall - House has good layout, family gathering friendly and nice beach. Nice view from porch. Beach is 50 yards away as crow flies, but 1/4 mile away by foot because of limited access points. Bunk bed room did not have ceiling fan but had space fans. Not enough towels to service eight people, fortunately we brought our own. No cable or internet, but DVD players with TV. Lots of parking in driveway/slab. Owner needs to hammer down ten or twenty nail heads on porch or everyone needs to wear shoes.
If owner/VRBO insures house is clean, overall a nice place.
Relaxing holiday weekend
Our family of 6 had a wonderful time at this home. Kitchen was well stocked with all our cooking needs. Great location with view of the gulf. Spent cool summer evenings on the deck enjoying the breeze off the Gulf.
Pros-the house was roomy, good access to a nice beach, big deck with lattice around rails so safe for children and nice views. Cons-garage full of stinky rotting stuff, kitchen a mess-needs cleaning out and organizing so dishes don't fall out when cabinet doors are opened. Rusty and dirty pots and pans, but did have other pots and pans just had to hunt for them.
Amazing Location and Home
We had a wonderful vacation weekend in this home! The layout is wonderful for larger groups. The dining, living and all bedrooms are good size. We travelled with 3 adults and 3 kids and had plenty of space, which is rare. The walk to the beach is super easy and close. We also enjoyed the small but clean pool. We loved that it had shade options after being at the hot beach. The pier is beautiful and peaceful. We would definitely stay here again.
