Enjoyable neighborhood and convenient location.
Great House with all the comforts you need and great views from the 3rd floor balcony.
We enjoyed our stay at the house. Was convenient to local shopping and restaurants. Was a few extra steps to the beach, but nothing that wasn’t manageable. Would recommend staying here.
Sun and fun on 30A
Above the Palms was a wonderful place to call home during our 6 day stay. We were immediately charmed by the quiet gated community of Calypso and the location of the house which was a short walk to the pool.
The house itself had everything we needed—comfortable living room furniture, a large kitchen table with ample seating and a washer and dryer on the main level. The kitchen was well stocked with every kind of culinary tool that you can think of. The ice maker on the fridge was an added bonus!
The rocking chair front porch was a nice spot to relax but our favorite spot was on the third floor deck with beautiful views of the ocean.
The bedrooms were a nicr size and the beds were comfortable. The air conditioning also works great throughout the house!
The beach is a short walk away and be sure to check out our new favorite restaurant Shunk Gulley with live music and views of the ocean from the upstairs deck. Bring your bikes so you can cruise around the Santa Rosa area. Dinner at the Vue (1 min drive away) was the perfect place to sit out and watch the sunset.
Thanks Danielle for your quick responses and all your help! We can’t wait to go back and stay at your beach house!
So glad you had a great time. Can’t wait to host you again!
Clean, beautiful home near the water
great space. so much room, we didn't even use it all. everything was perfect for our arrival and couldn't have asked for an easier experience. highly recommend this home and will be using it for our future trips to the beach.
This house was beautiful and spacious! Perfect if you have pets and proximal to the walking areas. Also great location to play golf or enjoy local outlets and eateries
Home needs upkeep & deep cleaning
We recently stayed 4 nights here over the Christmas holidays, but I must admit we were pretty let down by the home. The pictures and specific angles of how they were taken can be a little deceiving. The first floor ‘queen’ bedroom was very bare, comforter looked old/dirty, and the bed looked more like a full. The house definitely needs some work/necessary upkeep and a good deep cleaning. Many windows were covered with a permanent fog. New linens and a little TLC would go a long way, too, if the owners would invest a little time and effort. The house was once beautiful but just has not been maintained well. Not a horrible experience, but we will not rent this house again.
P.S. Be sure to bring your own cleaning supplies, soap, paper products.
Thank you for the feedback. We just returned from the house. We replaced all the comforters and bought new towels and sheets. We also painted some and fixed both the second and third floor decks.
