Great house, great location!

  • 5 of 5


I just want to thank you and let you know that we thoroughly enjoyed our stay last week! The house fit our family perfectly...plenty of room and close enough to the beach for our enjoyment...we had a great week!

The view of the ocean was great, the heated pool was awesome for the kids, the bikes were a big hit, and your suggestions for groceries, pics, and church were very helpful...thank you.

And, you did great on the weather...it was beautiful!

And, to prove that we enjoyed it, the oldest granddaughter is ready to go again and she said, "this same house"! And we all felt the same. So, again, thank you!

Perfect for our large group. They have thought of everything!!!

  • 5 of 5

This home was so comfortable and inviting for our four families traveling together. Each set of parents had their own king room with private bath and we had a two kids rooms (one for boys and one for girls) with jack and Jill bath.

The family room and eat in kitchen was the gathering place for everyone and had plenty of room. The second floor balcony overlooking the pool was a great place to hang out too. The third floor sitting room and balcony became a favorite for the adults. The views were exquisite.

The homeowners have thought of everything! There are plenty of beach chairs, bicycles and they even had a couple of rolling coolers.

We couldn't have been happier and never felt on top of each other with 8 adults and 7 kids.

Thanks for sharing your lovely home.

Best Vbro

  • 5 of 5

We had three generations at the house and everyone agreed that it was the best VBRO we have stayed in since we have been making our yearly family trip. Loved the house and the private beach. We almost had the beach to ourselves. Sue was the perfect host and was available for any and all issues. We will return next year!

A true Florida vacation

  • 5 of 5

If you are looking for the Florida beach experience - this is it. A beautiful home with all the amenities, a private pool at the house and (most importantly) a 3 minute walk to the beach. We had 12 people at the house and never felt crowded. Two decks which had great views where we would gather to talk over the day. Still, at the end of the day it is about the beach and the water. The beach and water are pristine and quiet with not many people. All in all we had a wonderful time. One last remark. Our host Sue was great. She handled everything perfectly and was always available to answer questions or concerns.

  • 5 of 5

My family and I loved the house. It was perfect size for our big family and was located in a great area. The beach was no crowded at all and was great for the kids to have fun and for the adults to relax. I would recommend this house to anyone.

Amazing vacation in an amazing house!

  • 5 of 5

Our family just spent our second vacation at Sea the View! We loved it so much last year and house is so perfect for our families that we returned again this May! The house has everything we need! We were able to leave so many things at home this year because we knew how much would be available, especially for the beach! Our group includes 4 families and 3 young kids. Sleeping arrangements were amazing since this house has 4 king masters! My son loved the bunk bed and we were able to rent a crib for my little one (there is a pack in play provided if you prefer). We cooked most nights and enjoyed the gas grill outside and awesome kitchen inside. Since we stayed in May we paid extra to heat the pool and it was perfect. We loved taking the bikes (included as well) for rides in the morning! Beach access is very close and both of our trips we’ve had the beach basically to ourselves. Both porches have beautiful views and are perfect for relaxing, eating and star gazing outside!

Sue was great to work with and was always very responsive to all of our questions! She really cares about the home and makes every effort for you to feel like it is your home when you are there! I’m sure my family will make another trip to Sea the View or Sea the View II at some point in the future!!
