Amazing stay, modern home, convenient to beach & pool

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic family vacation at Saltwater! We've stayed in SRB previously and this home is easily our new favorite. The renovations were well done and give the home a fresh, modern look and feel. We loved the location, an easy walk to the beach and to the community pool but separated enough from the other homes in the neighborhood to have some privacy and quiet.The provided beach chairs/toys/cart were in great shape and helped us relax and enjoy our vacation without worrying about where to rent items or how to pack them for the trip down. We never once had to run out and purchase something that was "missing" from the home.

The Old Florida Cottages neighborhood itself was very nice and well kept, with a very family-friendly feel. We enjoyed the warm pool, with plenty of space for multiple families to enjoy. The neighborhood has the feeling of being somewhat secluded while still in easy distance to restaurants, shops, and other amenities.

The check in/out process was smooth and the expectations reasonable (we didn't feel like we were being asked to be full-service housekeepers on our last day of vacation). Jenny was great to communicate with and helped us get in as soon as we could when we arrived a bit early. Overall, we would absolutely stay here again next time we're in SRB!

Beautiful Home!

  • 5 of 5

We were impressed with the home from the online pictures when we reserved it months before our stay, but it had been completely redecorated since then, and was absolutely amazing! As my daughter put it, "Joanna Gaines beachside!" What a lovely place, with every imaginable amenity. It was spotless upon arrival, and everything was in perfect working order. The walk to the beach was very short; the neighborhood was so quaint and peaceful. We would definitely stay here again!

Great place

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely squeaky clean and furnished wonderfully. The kitchen was outfitted with everything necessary to cook meals, even including many spices and oils. Comfy beds, quality furniture, beach chairs and umbrellas and a cart to haul them and toys provided to the beach. About a block and a half to beach and ice cream and seafood one half block away. Great quiet location. Loved the place.

Great place to stay, easy walk to beach

  • 5 of 5

Great area, great house. Walking distance to beach, walking distance to good restaurants, nice ice cream stand, seafood market. Condo was clean, everything in working order, plenty of room. If you get up early enough, you can drive down and grab a parking spot at beach and have your car right there at the end of the day. Uber is also available in the area
