"Our large family (which included grandkids from the age of 5-25) really enjoyed our week long vacation at Redfish. The VIEW!!! WOW!!! It was so stunning, I got out of bed at dawn almost every morning to see the sunrise... on vacation! The private beach area in front of the house is a RARE commodity for the busy, busy area of 30A Florida. I know most people love all the restaurants, shopping, biking, etc. that are nearby. And those are great and very convenient. BUT, I never wanted to leave the house and beach. Personally, I wanted to unwind and this was the PERFECT place. Hustle and bustle is nearby in Seaside / Watercolor / Rosemary and even the areas of Sandestin (outlet stores, etc.) But I prefer the solitude that Redfish offered. My mother has a hard time walking but she felt like she was on the beach just by being able to sit on the fantastic back deck. Sunsets were out of this world. I think I took 100 pictures of it because it was more and more unbelievable each evening. The beach is RIGHT there. My young daughter and I took beach strolls in the morning together by just walking down the convenient stairs right in front of the house. It was nothing to make a quick trip back to the house if you forgot something or to grab a bite to eat at lunchtime. My large family enjoyed the togetherness. We cooked almost every meal and the kitchen was great. As the cook several meals, I really enjoyed being a part of everyone in the large open kitchen / great room and even the multi-leveled open areas. You never felt slighted, even if you were the one cooking because you were with everyone in the house and you also had the stunning view of the ocean right out the spanse of large windows. Beautiful location. The rooms were comfy and had plenty of sleeping areas to accommodate our large crowd. As a lifelong 30A Beachgoer, I can testify that this place is a true GEM!!! There are many places to stay in this area but if you want to be ON THE BEACH and enjoy the beauty of the Gulf, this home is perfect. Thank you, Redfish for a wonderful vacation!!!"
