  • Old but homey. . .

    "When we pulled up my heart sank. I saw an old yellow out dated bungalow. When I walked in my heart sank a little more. to the left you see broken blinds and ripped couches. It was super hot so i go to thermostat and it won't go below 70 degrees. Read me out folks. The photos are outdated. so is the living room couches (they have holes and tears in them). . . but this place is so much more... the kitchen was super nice along w/front bathroom. the backyard was so peaceful i'd rent again just because of it. The place can use updates and a fresh coat of paint ...also, hear ye!! for the GRILL, take knobs off to get other two burners to work. oh, and DEAR ROD, please for renters sake put some blinds in the back bedroom. those see through curtains aren't enough when you have teenagers running around! (also, simply b/c you can't sleep in due to the sun beaming in and if you can't go below 70 its HOT in the back. thank you kindly.) It rained twice while we were there, saw no leaks, so idk what that review was all about. We would rent again. it was nice, just the little things needs to get fixed. us being able to bring our dogs made this place even more enjoyable. There was a guy named randy that freaked us out. he came out of no where to clean pool. i really didn't appreciate that cause my dogs went crazy and it scared us. some heads up would be nice. The walked to the beach was nothing. like a street over literally. Don't freak out when you see fridge, the front door is all rusted but inside perfectly clean. Don't get me wrong when you pull up your heart might sink, don't judge it from the outside, trust me. Now, i see why everyone raved about this place. You won't go wrong. WE will be back next year. The owner was super nice and easy to work with."

    "Wow!! What a wonderful vacation we had at Castaways!!! They are not joking about this beach home being as close to the water as you can get!! It was soooo very close!! So much easier to carry all the beach stuff & baby toys down! My husband & I took our children, grandchildren & niece; 10 in all. There was so much room; everyone had their own space. We absolutely loved the upstairs and spent much time enjoying the balcony overlooking the water! Just beautiful!! The kiddies enjoyed the game room! Such a nice, very, very clean house!!! Everything worked wonderfully; air was great; water was hot & great water pressure! So many bathrooms; no one ever waited :-) All the appliances; washer, dryer no problems! Stress free week!! So close to all the action spots too!! Thank you for being pet friendly; they are our family too :-) Rocco & Boomer were such good beach doggies! Couldn't have asked for a better beach home for the week!! Thank you Tammy for sharing your beach home with us!! Hope to stay there again next time we come with our large and growing family :-)"

  • Nice location but in need of maintance

    "Nice house with a nice location but is in need of a few things to make the house more functioning. The screened in porch during the summer time isn't usable during the summer because of the heat and the air conditioner unit is in there so can't hear each other when you try to have a conversation. The pool is really nice but no lights at night. Not enough linens for the amount of people that can stay there. The backyard needs cleaned up and manicured. If more updates are made and the outside is cleaned up, this house could be really nice. If not, 3-4 star maybe."

  • House was great!

    "We booked this house several months before our stay. Everything was great until about 2 weeks prior we suddenly found a very disturbing review of the property had been posted. Understandably we were concerned so I contacted Emerald Coast Destinations seeking a response. Bob at ECD reassured us that the bad review was not a accurate depiction of the property. We took Bob for his word and followed through with our week long stay. All I can tell you is that we had zero problems and certainly no issues such that were expressed in the review. The air conditioning worked great. We didn't have any bug problems. Everything was clean and everything worked/functioned like it was supposed to work/function. Sure, there were a few cosmetic deficiencies but it's a 20+ year old beach house already past the halfway point of the season. The property was as described on website. The property was exactly as described by Bob when we expressed concern. It fully met our expectations when we booked it several months before. In fact, the furniture and tvs were actually nicer than we expected. It also has a chest deep freezer next to the kitchen which is awesome for storiing ice for all our coolers. The only negative I can really bring up is that the wifi wasn't very strong...such that it deterred me from doing too much work on my cpu....oh darn! This place met all our expectations and we had no issues. And we appreciated Bob from ECD calling afterwards to make sure we had a good time."
