Everything was perfect!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great vacation. We loved the change of pace in the community lifestyle at the beach. We rented a golf cart and it was fun cruising around the neighborhood. Also the 3 bikes here at the home were used by our big kids and we rented some child size cruisers for the smaller ones. The house had everything you would need if you didn’t want to bring a lot of beach supplies from home. Felt like our home away from home for our stay. I don’t think we will ever do a beach vacation in a high rise condo again after vacationing here. You’ll love the hospitality.

October Getaway

Your place was absolutely beautiful. We enjoyed our stay and would love to stay here again. We stayed at Carillon Beach 20 years ago and was really impressed at how the development had aged. It's a really cool place!

Great Family Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

The house was beautiful and tastefully decorated. The neighborhood was private, super clean and seemed very safe.

We enjoyed the beach, it was not very crowded. Grocery stores were close.

We hope to return.

Great time had by all!

  • 5 of 5

We loved everything about A Shore Thing! It was so nice and relaxing to stay in a well designed and decorated home. The screened in porch was the home to many card games and the outdoor shower was a must for our 4 young kids! We will definitely be back! Thank you for your generous sharing of movies, books, toys, paddle boards, bikes and more!!
