Very nice. Beautiful house. Just a little too far from the beach.

Owner's Response: We are thrilled you enjoyed this stunning home! While there is a 3 to 5 minute walk to the Bridges pool and another 3 to 5 minute walk past that to the beach, it remains one of our favorite walks to the beach of all of our homes. Over 2 beautiful bridges that cross Camp Creek Lake and on the boardwalk around the dunes. The home comes with a wagon for your use in carting your gear down to the beach with you. The large private pool, backyard area and quiet neighborhood make this vacation home one of our most popular homes south of 30A. We hope you come back and visit us again soon!

Gorgeous house! Perfect for multiple families

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved this house. It was perfect for multiple families with all the bedrooms; not pictured is a huge bunk room that is perfect for older kids - they loved it. The walk to the beach was kind of far if you have small children, but it's a beautiful walk. The beach is basically empty which is so nice. The pool was perfect to let the kids jump in whenever they wanted. I would highly recommend this house!

Exquisite home and decor, perfect for multi-families!

  • 5 of 5

We had our first multi-family vacation this past summer with friends and were beyond pleased with the accommodations! The kitchen was our "hub" and we shared many laughs, good meals and deep conversations together. Plenty of space for adults and kids alike to spread out and still not be on top of each other. The pool was a huge plus after coming in from the beach the kids were able to still play outside and swim as the adults could relax and unwind outdoors under the shaded patio alongside the outdoor kitchen. I wouldn't have changed any of it and I hope we return to this beautiful house in the summer and make this an annual trip!

The beach house was beautiful and very well maintained; however it was very noisy.

  • 4 of 5

The construction across the street was there from 7 am to 5 pm. There was a house painting crew outside next door. The trucks and cars were parked in front and down the street. Also, we couldn't get to the beach from access bridge because it was under repair. I would have appreciated if booking agency would have told us that information. When street is finished, we'll return. It was a great house.

Owner's Response: I am happy to report that the bridge repair was completed just prior to Thanksgiving and the house build across the street has progressed to the inside trimmings to date. I apologize for any inconvenience during your stay. We welcome you to come back any time to stay in this wonderful home.

Want a dream vacation? Look no further.

Quiet neighborhood. Private beach. Swimming pool literally in your backyard. Sound too good to be true? It's not! Just book your next Florida vacation at this pristine home and prepare for a vacation you'll never want to end. (Even more than you usually do!)

We were able to host our family vacation of 12 people without feeling like we were on top of each other all the time. Thanks to the owner's generous offer to use their bikes, we were able to bike around for the week for the same price as one day's rental anywhere else. The pool being literally steps from the house was such a treat, as we could jump in whenever we felt like it! The private beach is a short and beautiful half mile walk from the front door of the house, giving you the opportunity to take in the pristine landscape of the lake and ocean.

The house offers privacy and community at the same time, making it the perfect location for your next family vacation/reunion. Everyone has a comfortable place to go and relax, but then plenty of room to get together and make memories. The kitchen gives you plenty of room to cook without missing a minute of the action. We regularly gathered around the large island and chatted while cooking. You can eat at the giant dining room table, or take the party outside and eat on the covered porch under the outdoor ceiling fans. (There's a grill out there, too!)

All linens are provided, as well as a healthy supply of pool towels. The kitchen is well stocked with dishes, pots/pans, and spices.

We absolutely loved our time at this house, didn't want to leave, and are counting down the days until we can come back!
