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.

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.

Beach home and community with a great view

  • 5 of 5

Two of us rented this unit in mid-October. This unit is on the second level and has a great view of the ocean. We enjoyed beach reading, beach walking, and kayaking and the weather was fantastic. Even though this rental is located a small block back from the beach, the view and access were wonderful. You just take the path across the vacant lot in front of the property and cross the road the the ramp for the beach. The traffic on the road was quite manageable and did not give us a problem. The unit is immaculately clean and had 3 flat screen televisions. It has a new king mattress in the main bedroom which was very comfortable. The kitchen has a new refrigerator/freezer is a two door stainless steel appliance with plenty of room. The stove top was the flat surface type. Alan was very helpful with local information and quick to address any questions or needs. He had placed restaurant information flyers in the unit and can also tell you anything you need to know. Alan is very friendly and the neighborhood feel of the house makes you feel like a resident of Mexico Beach instead of a visitor. It's a great beach home away from home! We enjoyed our stay and will keep it on our list for future visits.

Amazing Stay at Beach Comber

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing stay at the Beach Comber. Al was a very gracious host. He is only as involved in your stay as you want him to be. The house was very clean and had everything we needed. The outdoor shower, beach cart, chairs, and umbrella were clutch! The view from the porch rocking chairs was fantastic! If we weren't on the beach, we were enjoying the view from the porch. Al took us fishing at a great price. He cleaned the fish we caught and then explained how to prepare the fish. The area was very calm and relaxing. Great food and entertainment options.
