Stated at Golden Retreat twice in a month!
This house was so special that we chose to stay at this property twice. We returned the second time with our “furbaby”! The home is beautiful, as depicted in photos. Home well stocked for humans and pets! Is in gated community, safe and many snowbirds enjoying the neighborhood. The beach is an easy short walk. Small Businesses close by for last minute needs. We took day trips to St. Joe and Apalachicola. Beautiful, comfortable home in delightful area. We will be back!
Beautiful cottage with everything you need. Well maintained, great safe location, pools, beach access. Comfortable for a family of 6 and our doggies really loved it. We want to go there again!
Beauty at the Beach!
This cottage is a beauty! Our family of six thoroughly enjoyed our stay. It had every convenience of home and the screened in porchES were fabulous! The cottage's decor was lovely, cozy and the attention to detail was just what we were looking for in our vacation accommodations! We would highly recommend a visit to Beauty at the Beach!!
We joined our three adult children, son-in-law and 2 granddaughters at this house for a week. Overall, it is a nice house, porch areas are very nice, kitchen is well stocked, and a nice neighborhood. A couple notes of caution however would be the chandelier over the dining room table is almost a safety hazard. Several of us were poked by it more than once leaning over to wash the table, play a game, etc. Also, the ponds may have been stocked at one time, but now are nearly exclusively inhabited by turtles. You will likely catch no fish, just turtles. There is nowhere in the area to clean fish and nowhere really to do it at the property or in Barrier Dunes. The 4 minute walk to the beach is if you are an adult and can walk a good pace, make it about 10-15 with small children and beach gear. The beach chairs are nice and the equipment provided in the shed was very helpful.
Everything about this property was wonderful. It was very clean, and the owners were super prompt with communicating and taking care of any needs. The best thing about this property is the lay out of the house and the amazing decks. The 3 bedrooms all have access to outside decks which are screened in and so peaceful. My oldest daughter never used the inside stairs as she preferred to exit her upstairs bedroom to the outside deck, come down the spiral staircase connecting the up and down decks, and come in through the front door. I loved the hanging air mattress on the top deck. So nice to feel secure and private and still be able to see the views and feel the breeze while you drift off for afternoon nap. There is no beach view which I thought I would miss but the pond views and the beach breezes were great, and I always felt that I was right on the beach. Such a lovely house with a lot of space inside and out. All of the spaces have been so thoughtfully decorated and well stocked. The owners have taken a lot of care to think of what you might need. The walk to the beach is not bad, but we rented bikes and most of the time rode those to the beach which made it super easy. Thank you for sharing your house! It was such a wonderful peaceful vacation and we hope to return.

Golden Retreat was Beautiful.
They property was everything that I had hoped it would be. Beautifully decorated and very comfortable. The kitchen was fully equipped. Our family had a wonderful vacation and I would rent this property again. My only disappointment was there was not a view of the ocean but other than that it was perfect.
