  • 5 of 5

The Barbie House was perfect for our family. We had 6 adults ranging in age of 16-53. From the greeting of a key lime pie in the frig to the exit of hearing the waves on the beach as we pulled away, it was everything we had hoped for and more.

Each bedroom was a great size. We had people sleeping in each one including the "office" twin beds, which my 16 year olds loved. I don't believe there are any pictures of the bathrooms so I went on faith hoping it would match the rest of the house and they did. Very clean and up to date! One on the main floor and one in each of the bedrooms upstairs.

We had one little issue and I was very pleased at how quickly it was taken care of, even going above and beyond what we would have expected!! They have really included everything you would need for a great stay.

You actually can walk right to the beach! And you can hear it from the house. I had just had some health issues and the access to the ramp down to the beach was just feet away and made it so easy to get down and back up to the beach. The beach was so close, the kids just walked back and forth. We were also just minutes away from Seaside hustle and bustle to enjoy all of the food and shopping but just enough away to be able to avoid all the traffic. Perfect for the kids to bike or walk.

The house and the pool are exactly what we wanted. Heated and great for end of day at the beach or for the days when I just wanted to rest at the house. The decor is so cute!! I am sure my family would have never left if we didn't have to get back to work and our other lives.

Ted and his wife have done a great job and were incredible to work with. They called before we left our home to make sure we had everything we needed and were full of information to make our stay fantastic.

I guess I could sum up the stay that, as we were leaving, we were all crying. Can't wait until next year!

Thank you Ted!

Seagrove Dreaming

  • 5 of 5

Stop looking for the perfect beach rental because Barbie's Beach house is just that! Barbie's Beach house is privately tucked away yet only a mere 100 yards from the ocean and located in the heart of all the best restaurants and activities located on the 30A. When you enter the property you immediately feel you are in the heart of Seaside with the watercolor turquoise and pink house paint, the cobblestone drive and pathways, and the perfectly manicured yard. My husband and I have stayed in the area for 3 years now and visit friends that stay in Seaside and Rosemary beaches; I can state with confidence that this house is more convenient, comfortable, and financially more reasonable than any of the previous homes we have stayed in or even visited; and, although the beach was populated I never felt crowded or as though we did not have any elbow room in the water and at our umbrella. Ted Densmore is first class all the way; his mission was to ensure that our stay was high quality and this was evident through his restaurant recommendations and personal accessibility when I had questions. I could write a book about the adorable decor of the home, the hospitality of the dessert upon arrival, and the perfect location but I also realize the purpose of this review is to assist the consumer with booking a home; therefore, I bulleted the main points that may be of interest to other families.

1. LOCATION! This house is in Seagrove Beach but less than a mile from Seaside, 3 miles to Watercolor, and approximately 7 miles from Rosemary. In addition to the general location the house is approximately 100 yards from the beach access which is convenient for families with young children.

2. AMENITIES; the amenities of this home are first class. There is a grill deck with a nice gas grill. There is a private pool and this was clutch with our kids. The shed has beach chairs, umbrellas, bikes, pool toys, sand toys, and general supplies required for upkeep. The kitchen is fully stocked and there is a bar hutch for evening drinks.

3. DECORATIVE & COMFORTABLE; the beds were comfortable and the sheets were soft. There is also lots of storage space for organizing beach supplies, clothes, and shoes.

In closing, there are homes designed only for "rental" and homes designed to ensure a perfect experience for a renter. It is evident Ted and his wife designed a home they love and in turn share their home so other families make memories of a lifetime. Thank you!

So cute & clean!!

  • 5 of 5

The house was EXCELLENT! So cute & quaint! Plenty of room for our group of 5! The hot water never ran out and that made it super easy for everyone to get ready in the evenings after being at the beach all day! Which was also very beautiful! We'll definitely be returning!

The property is in a great location to the beach-short five minute walk. The yard contains lots of beautiful flowers and bushes which unfortunately attract the horrible yellow flies in June. We got many bites and had an urgent care visit because of the bugs. The pool was small but refreshing. The house contained everything you could need for a great trip. The beds were comfortable except the master bed - it sinks in and was not comfortable. The sofa also needs also be replaced. Ted was very responsive when a storm rolled in and the pool needed to be cleaned. Overall, we had a great trip at Barbies.

Barbie's beach house

  • 5 of 5

This place was perfect for our family. The owner was very helpful with everything even with awesome food recommendations. The yard was beautiful and the hammock added the perfect touch. We hope to return again soon. Thank you for providing beach equipment and for the awesome key lime pie upon arrival.

Spring Break 2016

  • 5 of 5

This was our 2nd year at Barbie's Beach House and as expected, we had a fabulous time! The home is absolutely beautiful and immaculately clean! We love being just steps away from the beach and having a pool in the backyard. We spent our days relaxing at the beach and pool and spent our evenings relaxing in the lovely sitting area in front of the house. The house is equipped with bikes and beach gear and anything else you could possibly need. The heart of Seaside is an easy 5 minute bike ride and is extremely kid friendly! We love Barbie's Beach House and we're always sorry when it is time to go home! Thank you for opening your home, we wouldn't consider staying anywhere else! And thank you again for the yummy key lime pie awaiting us upon arrival!
