We had a Real Good Time @ Reel Good Time
This rental has EVERYTHING you could want, even a Jacuzzi tub in the master bedroom with powerful jets....came in very handy! Great Fishing steps from the house. We enjoyed watching the tide go in and out. This is a simple home with everything! We did have to fight the yellow flies, not to mention I got eat up by sand fleas. I'm on prednisone now. I would definitely stay here again!
This was my first time visiting the "Forgotten Coast." I primarily chose this spot because the beach is dog friendly & I was vacationing with my pup. The house was wonderful. Better than the pics. It was clean & comfortable. Communication with rental agent was prompt & all questions answered. I stayed 9 days with my Ridgeback & we had a peaceful, quiet time. Only a few other visitors near us but mostly the beach was empty.....just the way we like it! It did rain quite a bit, but that is expected in summer in Florida. I would definitely return & rent this house again.
Retreat and Relaxation
We arrived at Reel Good Time and were pleased that the house was roomier than we visualized from the photos. We were able to go exploring all the area beaches due to our location and though we had been to St. George Island before, we were able to visit Cape San Blas and Alligator point as well. The forgotten coast has so many gems to see! The town of Carrabelle was friendly and very close. Millenders seafood had great fresh catches and the local pizza place had friendly staff and great pizzas for take out. One of the joys for us was seeing our son play and explore on the beach. He is 11, so we would never leave him alone on a beach with strong waves, but in this case we did feel comfortable to leave him on the beach and in the shallow water knowing we could see him well and were very close to him from the living room and kitchen. The water was so calm because of the barrier islands. The small sting rays came right up to the shore in shallow water after the rain and the horseshoe crabs made an appearance as well. Ghost Crab hunting at night was a treat for our son! The kitchen was well stocked and the house felt roomy and comfortable. The master bath had a jetted tub. We had houses on either side but no one was there so it felt totally private. We were truly able to relax and enjoy family time!
Thank you so much for that great review. We are glad you had a wonderful experience. We look forward to you and your family staying with us again.
