An excellent week

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I, our 2 adult children, their spouses, and our grandchildren stayed a week. We had a wonderful time. The house was spacious and gorgeous. We weren't "tripping over each other." The furnishings were all very good quality. When we weren't at the beach, the adults spent a good deal of time in the main living area, a bright 2-story space. The grandchildren spent a good deal of time on the floor in the "sitting area" at the top of the spiral staircase, using their electronic devices. The bedrooms were good-sized. The beds were comfortable. The bathrooms were spotless. The kitchen was well-appointed. We ate in 90% of the time. We never encountered any difficulties with cookware, dishes, glasses, utensils, etc. The views toward the gulf are wonderful. Access to the beach is straightforward ... takes maybe 3-4 minutes. The location at the extreme south of the island was ideal for our group. Far less traffic than further north, yet easy access by car to a shopping center, drug store, supermarket, and a very fine fish restaurant.

I've read a couple recent reviews and will offer a couple comments. Yes, there was a noise at the end of the flush cycle for the master bedroom toilet. It was an oddity, or perhaps even a minor irritation, but didn't detract from our enjoyment of the house. Yes, you can get splinters walking barefoot on the main deck. We solved that by implementing a "shoes only" policy that worked just fine. The spiral staircase and rear exterior staircase might well be a problem for very young children, but our youngest grandchild was 8 and never encountered any difficulty, nor did we ever fear for her safety. The lanai, accessible from the master bedroom and main deck, had some torn or missing screens. Although unattractive, this didn't present a problem for our group ... this was not a "buggy" season. The upstairs decks ... accessible from 2 upstairs bedrooms ... were in poor shape. We didn't use them at all, but that didn't detract from our enjoyment of the house. It would present a problem, however, to a group that wanted to make use of those decks.

Despite the issues with the exterior, the interior of the house, its beach access, and its south island location were all 5-star in my judgment. Our enjoyment of the house was 5-star. So I feel the house deserves an overall 5-star rating. We'll stay again. That said, as noted, perhaps the house would not be a good choice for a family with very young children.

Beach home

  • 3 of 5

Decking needs updated, screen wire needs repaired or removed. not enough bath towels for 8 of us. the master suite bathroom sounded like a siren going off when flushing the stool. Bring your house to code and it would be fabulous.

Some safety concerns

  • 2 of 5

The size of the house is great - especially if the full 8 people are staying. Plenty of space to spread out and relax. We had our three small children along - ages 6, 3, and 1.

The first day of our arrival, they all ended up with feet full of splinters from the back deck. It has been poorly maintained and will provide plenty of opportunity to use those tweezers and needles. Certainly something that can be overcome by implementing a shoes all the time policy.

We also quickly realized that the two smaller kids could fit their bodies completely through all of the railings. And there are plenty of railings. The steps up to the front stoop, the circular stair going to the second floor bedrooms, the balcony railing all along the second floor common space, and the back deck. Our littlest even found one spindle on the back deck that was loose at the bottom and was determined he was going to remove it while we were there.

I was helping our three year old in the bathroom one evening - and, like any three year old, she was exploring the very bare cabinets. Seemingly harmless - until she opened the cabinet directly below the sink and the false door front smashed my big toes and left and open cut on one. Why the false front was not attached - I have no idea. The screws were there - just not tightened down.

My husband suffers from allergies and found that during our stay his allergies were acting up primarily while we were in the house. He noticed that there are some plumbing leaks and suspects that there is mold under the cosmetic upgrades that catch your eye.

Speaking of plumbing - every time the toilet in the main floor master bathroom flushes there is something with the plumbing that makes a very strange sound. Again - not unbearable for a week's stay - but something to be aware of if you have children that are sensitive to staying in different places.

As far as household provisions - we found 2 bathing wash clothes in the entire place and exactly 8 towels. So we purchased our own wash clothes and towels for our stay. The kitchen is very minimally stocked as well. The single baking sheet does not actually fit in the oven - but there is (1) 9X13 pan. Salt and sugar were the only condiments that we found in the cabinets. And the cabinet under the oven had mouse droppings.

Although we enjoyed our trip & spent most of our time outside - our inside time was stressful making sure that everyone was staying safe. We will not return.

Perfect Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We had the perfect vacation with our family in this house. Everything from the very beginning was easy. Easy to make the reservation, responsive owner with pre-arrival questions, etc. The house was exactly as described in the webpage and allowed us to have a great time. There were a couple of minor details we asked the owner for help while on the house; she was available at all time and reacted with great celerity. Definately a sure bet for a great vacation on the Gulf Coast
