Why Alan Sligh chose North West Florida

Mexico Beach offers some of best fishing in Florida and some of the last remaining undeveloped beachfront in the state. Our beaches are almost never crowded, often almost empty. Nearby there are many miles of beach still in a natural state.

What makes this house unique

Safe. Quiet,friendly neighborhood, within easy walking distance of the popular Killer Seafood, Toucans restaurant, Lookout Lounge bar and Gulf Foods grocery store. Steps from the beach and the new side walk path that parallels the beach.

Wonderful House with Great Ocean Views without the High Oceanfront Prices!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I very much enjoyed our stay at Beachcomber! We will definitely be back. The ocean views from the porch are amazing and the house was immaculate! The beds and linens were something special also. I don't think I have ever raved about bedding on a beach vacation before! The owner, Alan, is a great guy who is very attentive to his guests' needs. He really does want to make your stay as pleasant as possible. He went above and beyond when he worked with us to get us checked into the property early. He also had our beach cart loaded with chairs and umbrellas and ready to go. I can't say enough good things about this house or about Alan. You will just have to experience it for yourself!

Great vacation home and location with beautiful Gulf view!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at Alan's beach house and we can only recommend this to everyone. The house is very nice and clean, has a beautiful Gulf view and the beach is just a minute away across the street. Everything you need for a great and relaxing beach vacation is available. We also greatly enjoyed our boat tour with Alan, thanks a lot for the great time and hospitality!

Great home to vacation in with beautiful view of the Gulf!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our time at Alan's beach home, wonderful view of the Gulf, just cross the street and your on the sandy beach:) Or set on the rocking chairs on the deck to relax.

If you want to bike or set out on the beach, he has chairs and umbrella all set up in a wagon to pull out on the beach, great set up!!

If you have trouble sleeping, you won't at this house, Alan has the best of the best in mattresses, excellent sleeping and to add to that, the linens are wonderful, very very nice!!

I loved the crown molding as well as the beautiful window, very lovely vacation home.

Thanks Alan, we look forward to visiting with you again next winter!

Beautiful sunsets!

  • 5 of 5

If you are looking for a quiet beach with white sand and beautiful sunsets, you will not be disappointed! Alan's home is clean and comfortable with a great view of the gulf and beautiful sunsets from the front porch. He is a perfect host with plenty of information about places to eat and things to do. We hope to come back one day.

Wonderful!! Relaxing!!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I had a wonderful time at Beachcomber. We were there for the month of February and couldn't have asked for a better time. Alan even made us the best brownies ever! Alan took us shelling which was better than we anticipated. We would definitely consider returning to Beachcomber.
