About Teresa Petro

We live near St Louis, MO. We have 3 active kids and love to travel. We have found 30A to be our favorite destination, thus our decision to purchase a home here. Along 30A we can spend time exploring the waters through paddle boarding, canoeing and fishing, as well as golfing, running and biking. Providing an active lifestyle and enjoying amazing dining along 30A is why we love this area. The beautiful white sand and blue waters of the gulf are breathtaking. Being surrounded by state parks with coastal lakes and sand dunes provides a tranquil and beautiful setting to explore.

                                                        Great home in a very convenient community!

                                                        Dennis A.

                                                        The home is in excellent condition...very nice finishes...and had everything needed to enjoy a relaxing vacation. The gated community is great and offers a lot more peace than being in one of the busier locations and is just a short ride to anywhere you want to get to. The community pool and trail to the beach is just a short bike ride away...and the bikes are there to use!

                                                        well-stocked, comfortable home, easy ride to beach

                                                        Heather N.

                                                        Our family of four stayed at Gulf Dreams the middle of July and had a great experience. We had been in touch with Teresa intermittently over the preceding year, and she was pleasant and very accommodating throughout that time. The home was large enough to have fit another (or larger) family as we did not end up needing half of the upstairs space. We have stayed in WSW three times, and the layout of this home afforded us the best sleep we've had (we couldn't hear our kids talking and playing in the wee hours!). The kitchen cabinets were full of nearly every kitchen tool imaginable, making it easy to cook. Also provided were 2 dishwashing pods, a small bottle of Dawn, one roll paper towels, one roll TP per bathroom, 2 garbage bags, step stool and step ladders (which helped with toddlers reaching tall sinks). Also WiFi (which can be spotty on 30A) worked well.

                                                        We had a lot of rain on our trip, so the Petro's games were put to good use. We introduced our 5 and 7 yr old boys to Twister, war, Jenga, and Farkle. We enjoyed most of our meals on the comfortable screened porch, and, when the rain stopped, our boys were thrilled to finally have boogie boards and skimmers provided. We rented 2 beach chairs and 2 umbrellas from Shades, and took two beach chairs from the house for the kids. We rented a wagon, and I used one of the (6 or 7) provided bikes to ride with the boys to the beach or pool. On bike, it took about 7-10 minutes (it felt like less!) to get to the beach, and by the time I had ridden with the boys and locked our bikes at the boardwalk, my husband had made it with the wagon. We were thrilled to find a bridge installed over Deer Lake making beach access easier than in past visits. (Of note, we probably didn't HAVE to rent the wagon, but we had used one on past visits in other homes and had already made arrangements.) When we made it back from the beach, we all appreciated the outdoor shower to be rid of sand and grub. While this was our rainiest visit to WSW, we also all agree it was our best to date. We'd gladly stay at Gulf Dreams in the future and highly recommend it.

                                                        Great House!

                                                        Shayla H.Columbus, Ohio

                                                        We loved our week in this fantastic home! The house was perfect for a relaxing trip with our four children. Immaculate, very well-maintained, fully stocked kitchen and beautiful. We really enjoyed being so close to everything 30A has to offer, but escaping the crowds!! Our young children could easily bike around this quiet community and play on the uncrowded beach and beautiful pool.

                                                        Everything included

                                                        Rose B.

                                                        The home is clean and comfortable.

                                                        Nice to have beachchairs and bicycles included!

                                                        Very quiet area of 30A

                                                        The home was beautiful and perfect for a relaxing Spring Break.

                                                        Jeanne M.

                                                        We loved our vacation to Santa Rosa Beach and this property is amazing! It was very comfortable for my brother's family of 4 and our family of 5. The house was perfectly stocked, immaculately cleaned and beautifully decorated. In addition, the beds were so comfortable. We enjoyed the quick walk to the pool and easy access to the private beach. We also enjoyed having bikes accessible to use for rides into Seaside and Rosemary Beach. We hope to come back again soon! Highly Recommend!!

                                                        Great place to stay

                                                        Sarah E.

                                                        The home is beautiful and really well laid out. We had six adults and everyone had plenty of space. The recommendations on places to eat where very much appreciated. We tried (a lot!) of the suggestions and were pleased with all. The bikes and beach chairs were put to good use as well. Thanks for a great stay.
