"We had a blissful week at the beach, with a large family group ranging in age from 3 months to 64 years! Renting both sides, there were opportunities to be as together or as apart as anyone wished to be, and even the teens had spaces to claim as their own. For the adults, who have visited this part of the Gulf for 20+ years, we especially enjoyed the feel of a beach home on a private dirt road, which felt miles from the bustle of 30A. We gathered on the deck each morning to share coffee, and watch dolphins play in the surf. One morning we were delighted to see a manatee amble up the coast! We watched the children on bicycles in front of the house, and never worried about traffic. Yet we were one small block away from the best of anything anyone would want or need during a week of vacation. (The only thing we didn't do was move our cars!) The kitchens were fully stocked for the chefs in the family, and the full sized laundry rooms were just what we needed with kids. Typically, after a successful rental experience, we can't wait to tell all of our friends and co-workers about our beach house. This year, we don't want to tell anyone! We just want to keep it our little secret! Seriously, it was perfect for us, and wonderful memories were made."
