Our family of 12 just returned from a most fabulous stay at Hootie Hoot. From the minute all of us arrived, until our bittersweet good-byes, this home provided us with a relaxing, peaceful, fun, and stress free week. The screened in porch was a bonus that we had not experienced in other beach rentals and was the perfect spot for our morning coffee and visiting. The well maintained kitchen was large enough that several could pitch in to prepare meals and there was plenty of kitchen ware, for us to prepare almost all of our meals throughout the week. The well maintained private pool was an added bonus that we used almost as much as the beach. The perfect beach views from three of the bedrooms, as well as the large picture window, allowed us to not only see the beautiful water, but also see our family playing in the water and sand. Additionally, the boardwalk provided a very short walk to the beach. We were thrilled to find an abundance of chairs that we could use at the beach as well as at the pool. We were so glad that we took advantage of the kayaks as we used them daily. The Sunset Beach neighborhood, as well as the beach, was very quiet and private. Seeing dolphins very close to the beach almost daily was really special. We have nothing negative to say about Hootie Hoot. Our kids and grandkids want to know when we can go again!

Fabulous vacation

  • 5 of 5

The house was perfect for our large family. The walk to the beach was short, which was perfect for young children. The private pool was a huge hit!

Everything you need and more

  • 5 of 5

We were 10 adults and 3 toddlers. Plenty of room for everyone. Had to put pack n plays in both of the master bedrooms and managed to squeeze a third one in the queen room by setting it in the closet and leaving the closet doors open. The kitchen is very well stocked with everything we needed including 2 large stock pots and a large griddle for pancakes and bacon or whatever you wish. The house comes with 2 kayaks and bicycles including a tandem bike which took me back to my childhood. We did use the bikes but not the kayaks as we weren't sure where to put them into the bay. I guess we could have used them in the ocean but we had much to keep us busy with fishing, chilling on the beach, ping pong and swimming in the private pool at the end of the day. The house is adjacent to the state park and for a fee of $2 pp you can ride bikes thru it if you don't want to ride on the main road. I would also highly recommend Lynn's Oyster Bar in Eastpoint for a variety of oysters and steamed shrimp and you must try their key lime pie. Also, Paddy's Raw Bar on SGI sells a great crab dip and is a great place to just hangout (trivia on Monday with live music nightly.) As a tip for future renters, when I first arrived I labeled every kitchen cabinet and drawer using blue painters tape and a sharpie. Then everyone knew what was where without having to continually open multiple doors/drawers in search of items.

The downsides were the dining room chairs on the tile floor make a lot of noise which can be heard overheard in the bedrooms above. They could benefit from some felt feet on the legs. The beach chairs that come with the house are not in very good shape but we had brought our own so it didn't affect us. In addition to the bathroom towel bars, the bathrooms could use some additional hooks for towels. Also, the stairwells are 5' wide and made of tile which is not conducive to young toddlers. We purchased some lattice from the Ace Hardware in Apalachicola and had them cut to 5' wide and used them as barriers/gates as standard baby gates would not work due to the 5' opening.

All in all, I would rate Hootie Hoot a good solid "A". We would definitely recommend this house to friends and would consider returning ourselves.

Our graduation celebration will long be remembered!

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect place for our family of three generations to relax, enjoy a spectacular beach and spend quality time together in a beautiful home with incredible views. Looking out at the beach through the stairwell picture window and hearing singing in the morning "hootie hoot" was priceless! Thank you for sharing your home with us!

Super close to beach with plenty of space

  • 5 of 5

Open, spacious home directly across from beach walk. 3 families were perfectly comfortable and not on top of each other. Quiet East end neighborhood walking/biking distance to State Park with great community pool as well as the one at the house. We only used the heated community pool due to cooler weather. The owners thought of everything in the kitchen & even called to check on us when they saw red beach flags were issued. You can tell they love this place. Super easy to work with for questions before we came as well. Thank you & we give this our highest recommendation!
