Guestbook comments from the manager

This is copied from an email we received from a very happy renter. Your place is fabulous! We felt like we were in an Italian bungalow...it was beautiful. We really felt relaxed the entire time we were there. The complex is so great with shopping and restaurants right there and others within walking distance. Our child loved romping in the fountains of the lawn while we relaxed on the benches and wondered through the shops. They even showed a movie on the lawn one evening and people brought out blankets and picnic dinners and watched while again the kids romped in the fountain. How cool was that. The tram service that takes you to and from the huge pool and beach made us feel as if we had a private chauffuer all week. We are definitely going back.

Family-oriented location with tram service to beach and restaurants nearby

  • 4 of 5

Reba's Retreat was like a modern-day hotel room -- one bedroom w/ kitchenette area with an attached bathroom. So it's good if you are one or two persons. Everything was clean and nice. Personally, I missed not having a balcony. The room's door opens to the interior of the building, not to the exterior. The bedroom area has the exterior windows.

The complex is very family-oriented (not in a noisy way; in a friendly way). There was a music event in the courtyard one night. The beach is not so close....so that's why they furnish a tram to it. It's not very far if you don't mind a small walk.... but with beach equipment, etc. in-tow, you might not want to walk that far.

Everything is setup for convenience. Reba's Retreat is right near the two pools. And the tram picks up persons at the pool. There is an elevator and luggage cart available (Reba's is on the 2nd floor). Parking was never a problem either. We always found a nearby spot which was nice....especially since there are retail shops and restaurants out front. There is bike rental out front too. But note that you cannot ride your bikes to the beach via the beach access that you must use. Reba's Retreat property has an agreement with Suncrest (a complex across the street on the beach side). You can ride the tram or walk there; not bike. You always have to take/wear your wristband signifying which complex you're staying at....which determines to the tram driver which tram you can use.

.

The beach access is several complexes down 30A and across the street deeper into one of the complexes there called Suncrest.

.

As far as the actual lodging went -- the place was well-appointed; had most kitchen items (no stove (has microwave, toaster oven) fridge, coffee maker, wi-fi. Unfortunately, it had no inventory of toilet paper; so when our initial roll ran out, it was not a good thing. NOTE: The lagoon pool is just a 2 ft wading pool.

.

The beach and complex is family-oriented....with older kids able to ride bikes from their complex to another to hear a concert, etc.. There is a great biking trail running parallel to Hwy 30A....linking all the complexes by bike/foot.

.

BTW, freezer doesn't work; missing door.

Fantastic, Fantastic, Fantastic!

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely loved our stay at Mustique! Laura is such a sweet person and she helped us with everything we needed right when we arrived. She really went above and beyond! This place was very clean and has everything you could possibly need for your stay. It is very private and in such a great spot. The bikes provided were great and we had such a fun time riding around the town. The tram will take you to the beach, pool, or really anywhere in the Seacrest complex. It is free but we always tipped our drivers so be sure and bring a little cash for the drivers. The only thing I would recommend is to bring a box fan if you need one to sleep at night. They do not have one to use in the unit (I didn't expect them to) but I always bring ours every where we go because we can't sleep without white noise. We will definitely be booking with Laura again the next time we visit 30A. We have stayed in every town on 30A and this was our favorite! Thank you so much!!

Owner's Response: I'm sorry, but I think you actually stayed in another property. I'm sure Laura will be thrilled if you could find her property on VRBO and put it there. I wish you had stayed in my unit. You sound like a great renter!!

Perfect beach condo rental

  • 5 of 5

Perfect beach condo. Reba's retreat has everything you need for your stay, and it's in a fabulous location. There are restaurants and shops all around and the beach access is a five minute walk. The place was very clean. We will definitely stay here again.

Great Trip in a Fantastic Condo

  • 5 of 5

I recently stayed in Reba’s Retreat for a long holiday weekend. My family (two adults and two young children) had a fantastic time. The unit is perfect for two adults or a family with one or two young children.

The condo was clean and in great condition. The kitchenette has everything you need for your beach stay – mini-fridge, blender, microwave and toaster oven. The location can’t be beat – right between Rosemary and Alys Beach, and you have access to the amazing Seacrest lagoon pool. The Village area has grown over the last couple of years so in the same building complex is a candy store, restaurant, yogurt bar and numerous shops. And don’t forget the shops and restaurants next door at Rosemary and Alys Beach. Our favorite is the Alys Beach donut truck – just a short walk or bike ride away.

My family will definitely consider Reba’s Retreat for our next beach vacation.

Owner's Response: Kevin, I am so glad you guys enjoyed your vacation. This is one of my favorite condos! Nice and cozy, but I am glad to hear you had plenty of room for your family of 4. Most people find that it is acceptable for a family of that size. I would have to agree with you on the donut truck! However, I do love Orange Leaf yogurt! We look forward to having you back in the future.

Beautiful beaches, great location & great property

  • 4 of 5

Reba's Retreat was very nice. The studio was nice and clean. Just across from the pool so access was great. Close to restaurants and shopping. Would have liked a little larger space as this is small but VERY HAPPY and would stay there again! Customer service and support from the management property was amazing! And very appreciative as that makes booking from a distance easier. I would recommend this property to others!

The Village of South Walton Beach is just across Highway 30a from the beautiful sand and surf of the emerald beach.

Our shops and restaurants are just outside the unit doors , fine dining, lunch and coffee shops are all located in the complex, a jewelry store and several beach curio shops. A grocery store is located in Rosemary’s Beach and the Publix and Winn Dixie are less than 3 miles away.

Play in the waters by day, and at night, enjoy the classically choreographed fountain light show. The unit has a large public balcony that overlooks the pool just outside your window. The entrance to the unit is located in a quiet hallway, steps away from the coin operated laundry room.
