"We could not have asked for a nicer vacation home. We walked in and were amazed at just how nice it was. Better than the pictures as someone has mentioned before. The place was very clean. Furniture was clean and relaxing and the floors were spotless. No sand on the floor. Not one speck. Hard to do when the house sits RIGHT ON THE BEACH! Everything you need it there. Dishes, pots, pans, utensils, ziplock bags, can opener, wine stopper, storage containers, cutting boards, toaster, coffee pot, etc etc. You know how most places say "everything you need"...well this place has it. We packed light because of the washer/dryer amenities, but, we could have packed much lighter even. They have books to read, games, cards, shovels/pails, beach umbrellas, and lawn chairs. They provide flash lights for walking the beach at night, we used the several pair of binoculars provided for bird watching, and the 3 person canoe is a ton of fun. I would give a 10+ for the house!
The beach is also great as you are just 30 steps from nice white sands. It is very natural, lots of "sea weed" washes up, and you share your sunning spot with many, many crabs. Pelicans and sea birds are in abundance to observe as well. Lots and Lots of fishing going on.
As to the location. It is definitely not touristy. Very laid back, casual and southern. We had such a relaxing time as we found there was not much to do in the surrounding small towns. Not a bad thing, just don't expect to find a lot of entertainment besides the beach. We are from a small town so we fit right in!
The only negative I like to point out is the water. It is very murky. It was more like swimming in a river than the gulf. The Ochlocknee River basin is not to far from this area and empties into the gulf as this point. That is the cause of the water conditions along this area I was told. Not a total deal breaker, but, we were hoping for the clear, blue waters of the gulf."
