Perfect home for a large group. Amazing property with fantastic amenities!

  • 5 of 5

We loved everything about this property! With 5 bedrooms and a large media room there was more then enough space for our group to spread out. The kitchen had everything we needed and there was so much storage space for beach toys, bags, etc. . The large bar area with ice machine was fantastic for extra hangout space and filling coolers for the beach. The views of the lake and ocean were gorgeous, especially from the 2nd floor master balcony. Truly, everything in this home was well thought out and perfect for vacationing! We loved Santa Rosa Beach and the beach chairs and umbrellas included with our stay were a fantastic bonus! All the staff on property were very kind and accommodating. We would absolutely stay again! Thank you for sharing your home with us!

Wait until you walk through the doors....wow!

  • 5 of 5

You definitely can’t judge a book by its cover and this is definitely the case here - the condo from the outside looks very simple from the outside. But when you open the door on the first floor, you see through the foyer a very spacious place where a family of up to 16(8 couples, 2 Teenagers or single people, and 6 or 7 kids)could sleep comfortably! There’s 5,000 square feet of space but it seems like more and the kitchen is top of the line gourmet stainless with views to die for! We will definitely be coming back !

It is a beautiful unit for a large group

  • 4 of 5

It is a huge house that can sleep 16 in bed, not counting sofa and couches. Large kitchen with all utensils and appliances you will need. Fully furnished decks on both levels amazed us, not mentioning beautiful bar, spacious laundry room. For us, there are just a few caveats: one of the chairs in dinning room has a loose leg, the drawing next to refrigerator has missing screws at sliding bracket and one light bulb was out.

The community is awesome: two swimming pools, lagoon connected to ocean, fishing pier, kayak and waving board, etc. BUT, this unit is one of the furthest away from swimming pool and beach. So you need to prepare to walk a lot:-)

The property was lovely. Perfect for our family of 11.

  • 4 of 5

The only negative was that we were given a check-in time of 4:30 (which seemed awfully late) and even then the cleaning crew was not finished because they had started to clean the 5000sq ft unit at 3:30! We soon discovered that the tile floors had not been cleaned because the soles of everyone's feet became black as soon as we took off our shoes. The floors were mopped 24 hours later after we complained, but it was not a good way to start off our family vacation week. Other than that we had a great time!
