Close to everything!

  • 5 of 5

The Beachcomber is a comfortable, clean beach house with a very nice view and just a short walk to the beach. The house was well stocked, and Alan was a very helpful host. My mother and I thoroughly enjoyed our girl trip.

Perfect beach view and location in Mexico Beach

  • 5 of 5

Home was in a great location with beautiful views of the Gulf. Sunsets every night. The porch was the best part of the property. House was very up to date and clean. Al was great! Always available and suggestions for everything from where to eat or where to fish!

Will be back for sure!!!

Property clean and in good location. Owner very accommodating.

We found the cottage to be clean and having all the comforts of home. The location was great! You can sit on the deck and watch the sunset over the gulf. Alan was great to deal with. He wanted to be sure we had what we needed to have a great time. Great guy!

Love to go back!!!

Hope to return again!

  • 5 of 5

Great location, clean, and very comfortable. The porch was great for morning coffee and watching sunsets-if you didn't want to make the short walk to the beach. Alan is great to work with. Will schedule a shelling excursion with him next time!

October retreat!

  • 5 of 5

Spent two wonderful weeks there, really felt like there should have been two comfortable chairs in living area instead of a sofa. We both have back issues and needed chairs to be comfortable. Everything else was fine.
