No Bath tubs
Our 3 generation group of 8 had a great time in this lovely house but I wish we had known that with 5 bathrooms there wasn't a single tub and the shower heads were not detachable. This might not be a problem for most but with 2 little girls with long hair who do not take showers, it was a major hassle for us, especially since we went to the beach and pool every day. Also, the nearest beach access at Topsail State Park had green water because of algae or seaweed and a long walk on the boardwalk after the tram ride (which only ran every half hour) so we went mostly to Henderson Beach State Park which was beautiful and not that far but the traffic on Rt 98 is horrendous so it took forever. If they ever finish the construction it should help. The community pool is very nice, large and not crowded, and within walking distance. The houses are very close together, so there is no yard play space and parking is tight for larger cars. You can also look right into the neighboring houses' windows. The house comes well stocked with toilet paper, cleaning supplies, dishwasher tabs, new sponge in kitchen, trash bags, beach chairs & toys, etc, however except for salt and pepper, there are no condiments. We found the locks to be tricky and had to call the owners for help.
The house has high ceilings and large balconies, lots of lighting, a large kitchen and dining table., and a counter for 3. Only 2 tv's (if that's important to you), but plenty of seating in the living room and comfortable beds. The furnishings are attractive and new looking. The 2 bedrooms on the ground floor are larger, the 2 on the first floor are smaller and don't have dressers but those 2 bathrooms are larger.
In conclusion, we wish it had been closer to the beach and that there had been at least one tub or detachable shower head, but the house was clean and it looked as shown in the photos and as described in the listing. It is a very nice house, just not quite right for us.
This was our first trip in which my husband and I along with our 3 grown children; their spouses and our grandchildren were able to all enjoy vacation at the same time under the same roof. We can’t say enough about the house. It is absolutely beautiful and exactly as described. The decor is gorgeous and makes you feel at home. The spacious floor plan allowed us tIme to enjoy one another without feeling like we were on top of each other. The view from the huge master suite is more beautiful than the picture can reveal. The shower.....oh, how I miss the shower, was awesome. The bicycles are a bonus and were used frequently just to stroll around the neighborhood. The pool and clubhouse are gorgeous and well maintained also. We loved the family feel of the neighborhood along with the quietness. Communication with Tim was amazing from the time we booked until after we returned home. That in and of itself is a rare find these days. We are so glad we found this place as it was a big contributor to making or family vacation a successful one. Thank you, Tim and Lisa!
Well kept, clean, very nice home. Convenient to beach. Nice club house and pool. Would stay here again.
Great house and location
Great house and location! House was lovely, amenities were perfect, gym, pool, and large grassy area for kids to play soccer! Really enjoyed Seaside and beach towns (short 15 min drive east). Destin is nice 30 mins away.
Great Place for the kids!!
We had a great time here at the property and also enjoyed the pool just steps from the house. House is in great shape and any feedback provided to owner was addressed.
Beautiful home with many amenities!
This is a fantastic property with great views of the Gulf coast and the nearby reserve. We were very happy with the cleanliness and upkeep of the property. The kitchen was fully stocked with pans, plates, cups, and other utensils. We would highly recommend if you are looking for a quiet and relaxing place to stay!!
