"We come to Inlet Beach yearly as a family & decided to introduce our favorite beach to friends this year so we shared this home with another family. It was just enough room for 2 couples with it's two master bedrooms. The little kids of our friends slept on the floor in their bedroom, and our 4 children slept in the extra bedroom upstairs (2 double beds and a trundle bed).
*The decks on this house were one of the best things about it! Huge wrap-around porch with comfortable patio furniture on the main floor, and another deck on the top floor with great views of the stars. One of the best nights was hanging on the top floor deck listening to music and watching shooting stars.
*The firepit - although we only used it once, it's a nice feature. Fun to dig your toes in the sand and feel those ocean breezes.
*The outdoor shower - crowd favorite!
*The kitchen- well-supplied with enough seating for a crowd (six around the bar, 6 at the table, 6 on the porch table outside) with room to move around. 3 adults working in the kitchen to prep dinner or the day's catch was not too crowded.
*Fullsize washer and dryer made drying off those wet beach towels a snap.
*Included beach supplies - seriously, don't even bring sand toys. The storage box on the deck is FULL of sand toys, body boards (I think there were 4?), nets, plastic boats. I can't even remember what all was in there but when I opened it I remember wishing I hadnt wasted room in the car bringing our sand toys.
*Covered parking for the cars
*The privacy & low crowds at Inlet Beach are always our favorite. This year was no exception.
*Many of our bath towels smelled terribly of cigarette smoke when we arrived. A quick fix in the washer, but still gross when you're toweling off after a shower & just realizing it
*We were told that there was a crockpot & beach cart at the house for our use & neither were there upon our arrival. Annoying because we had to change our dinner plans and hauling 6 kids beach stuff with no cart is a pain, but on the pro side, the management company went out and purchased both & brought it over so on the plus side -great customer service!
* The beach is only visible (barely) from the top deck of the house. We knew it wasn't beach front property, but it was a bit farther than we thought & the steps (I think one of the kids counted 62) leading to it was a hot and sweaty affair in July heat.
Overall, a great stay in a beautiful home. Highly recommend."
