"We just returned from a week-long stay at Mike's house in Diamond Beach and we had a great time. There were 7 of us in all: me and my husband, my 2 teenage children and their 2 friends, and my mother--and we all fit comfortably! The 16 year old boys took the cots (and couch and TV) in the basement, and the rest of us were upstairs with Grandma in the queen bed, the 14 year old girls in the twin bed room, and me & hubby in the tempurpedic king bed in the master! I slept wonderfully all week. The combo of the kitchen table and kitchen counter with stools were just right for our group, and if the weather was nicer, some of us could eat at the table on the deck!
BTW, the deck was very nice for morning coffee and reading and bird watching, and especially the beautiful sunsets over the bay & nature preserve. Perfect view!
Though the beach was 4 or 5 blocks from the house, it wasn't a bad walk, and if we went early enough we could drop off chairs, etc. and park closer. Another good thing about the distance is that it's very quiet at this condo. Apart from seeing a few people at the pool, it is a quiet community which is what we were looking for in our vacation. Within a quick walk from the house (within a block or two) was ice cream, mini golf, a well stocked beach shop, an Italian market that made Taylor Ham sandwiches! and a pizza/Italian restaurant! It was nice to have all of that so close by.
The house is spacious (we didn't feel like we were on top of each other all week) is very clean and neat, decorated nicely, and has the basics in the kitchen (plates, utensils, margarita glasses), and the beds are comfy. Mike will tell you, but don't forget to bring your own sheets, beach towels, and supplemental bath towels.
We really enjoyed our week at the Jersey Shore, and are thankful for this great property and Mike's excellent care of it! I'd definitely stay here again, and I'd recommend it to others!!!"
