Beachfront Home - 5 Bedrooms / 5 Bathrooms. Beachfront Swim Spa directly on the Beach!
It's a nice a spacious house with great access to and view of the beach. There is a lot of porch space and space inside, which was great.
The main negative that made this less than stellar: the cost/value - after all the cleaning fees, reservation fees, taxes, etc. the cost we paid was over $450/night for an off-season rental. For that rate - which is top dollar in the area - I expect a great property, and the actual maintenance is so-so. For example:
- The kitchen did not have any bowls, it had poor knives, beat-up pans, and a very mixed collection of cups and glasses. We actually had to go out and buy implements to cook with.
- There were no blankets in the house (it was cold outside), and we had to call up the management company to get some (which were delivered the next day)
- The very upstairs "master" bedroom mattress was rock-hard. Most others were fine and quite comfortable, but it seems like at some point someone replaced a nice mattress with a cheap one.
- Various small issues with the house: one toilet ran continuously, the garage door sounded like it was going to break at any moment, some roof or siding material was falling off.
It was clearly an investment property, one the owners don't actually use. The house itself was great, clean, etc., but the love was starting to fade in this property.
I hope they'll work to make it better and great again. Right now, I think there are better properties to rent for the pricetag.
The house was very spacious. We had everything we needed in the home. The home was a few steps away to the beach. We are already talking about renting Cotton Sails for next year.
My husband and I stayed here with our 10 year old son and two other families/friends. The place is exactly as pictured and very clean. It is beautiful and access to the beach is perfect. The views from every room just can't be beat. The house is close enough to walk to restaurants and not far from Pier Park. Close to restaurants, shops and the grocery store. We would definitely stay here again.
Had a great time! House was amazing right on the beach. Comfortable with lots of space. Only downfall was our party arriving after 9 hour drive and house wasn't ready at 4 but we got in by 5. Alex was amazing to work with coordinating our stay. We will be back!
