"Where to start … My wife and I planned a Re-Wedding with our immediate family and friends and desired a picturesque location on the beautiful emerald coast of Florida to include a backdrop of sunsets over the Gulf. We came across a rare gem in the property conveniently located at 8223 Surf Drive with an ability to put everyone comfortably under one roof. I stepped out on faith by writing a check for the payment several months in advance without an ability to view the house first hand. As with any rental unit that is booked up week after week throughout the tourist season, it is challenging to maintain everything in perfect working order (especially a house over 5500sf). With that said, we arrived and some items had to be addressed in the house. I called and spoke to Bob on the Sunday after our arrival. I was encouraged that he not only answered my call on a Sunday; but that he also promptly mobilized his team to address the items needing attention. Once his team addressed all of the items requiring attention on Monday, we had no other issues whatsoever during our entire stay. My wife and I lived in this wonderful home for two weeks and could not have been more satisfied. Bob even called the day before our Re-Wedding to see if there was anything else that we needed to make the event more enjoyable. With a little TLC, including some paint and a few odds and ends here and there; those that have the pleasure of staying here would never wish to leave. The breath-taking views from the patio and the second floor balcony left us longing for the endless immensity of the Gulf in our daily thoughts and nightly dreams. If you ever want to stay in a place desiring never to leave, this is the rental home for you. Sure, if you like to get into the weeds and pick nits, you can always find things to complain about; however, the treasures in life are best shared focusing on the beauty of those around you. Bob, thank you for making this a wonderful and memorable stay for my wife, family and friends. You are to be commended and I would definitely stay here again."
