*A golf cart is included for leisure trips around the island roads.

*An enormous ground level covered area that features two dining tables, gas grill, large swing for a nap in the shade, and an outdoor shower for washing off the sand after a fun day at the beach. This area is also functional for entertaining large groups with abundant lighting for evening gatherings.

*The ping pong table in the garage can easily be pulled out onto the covered area for hours of fun outside of the sun.

*We provide several beach chairs, beach towels, and beach toys so you don't have to pack those.

Communication before and during our stay was quick and always helpful. House was clean. Master bed was comfy. Tons of seating for a big family or visitors inside and out.

Wonderful place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

The house is beautiful and the golf cart that included in the rental was a blast for the kids. The house is just a short walk from the beach and has a gas grill that we used several times on our stay. We actually got to meet the owners because of a small problem with a smoke detector. I was promptly called back after a quick email about the problem. Within a hour or so, the owner was there to fix it. I couldn't have asked for nicer people. Enjoyed our stay and would DEFINITELY love to stay again next year. When can I book for next year??

Great trip to the Rays of Sunshine.

  • 4 of 5

Enjoyed the trip. There are a few things around the house that are in need of repair. No outlets in the in either bathrooms worked. Major problem for the ladies. The back sliding door is way too hard to open. It needs a handle that can be gripped. We had a nephew over that is an Army vet and even he that it was ridiculous. The light in he washroom is also in need of repair.

Other than these things the trip was very nice.

Thanks David

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for being a return guest in our home 2 years in a row. We are happy you enjoyed your trip, and appreciate that your level of standard is the same as ours. We completely agree these things needed attention, and depend on our guests to help us identify ways to make our home better. We only wish we would have known during your stay so it could have been a 5 star stay. We immediately addressed the following bathroom outlets: we flipped the breaker and they are fully functioning difficult back door: handle has been installed, we apologize and hope you utilized the other two back doors during your stay wash room light: we replaced the bulb that was out Thank you for loving our home as much as we do. See you next year!

This property was awesome! We loved the house and everything it had to offer.

  • 5 of 5

Everything was clean and comfortable. We had a very relaxing weekend and thoroughly enjoyed the porches and loved the swing. We had brought hammocks that fit nicely under the house. The kids loved the bikes, toys, board games and especially the ping pong table. As a big family we had plenty of room. We also rented the kayaks and crab nets. While we did not catch any, we still enjoyed the experience. I have shared this listing with many friends and I hope they can enjoy " Ray's of Sunshine" as much as we did. I am hoping to rent this listing many more times in years to come. The area is perfect for running in to Pensacola or in to Destin for day or night adventures. And perfectly nestled right in the sand for days when you just want to relax in the beautiful gulf. We took 4 children to the Gulf Breeze Zoo and to the Gulfarium. I don't think they will forget either of those experiences for a long time. We rented a pontoon and went out to crab island as a family. Even our two dogs got to join in on that outing. I was so thankful that "Ray's of Sunshine" allowed them to go on our family vacation with us. I can't imagine that our 2016 vacation to Navarre would of ever been as wonderful as it was without this rental. Thank you "Ray's of Sunshine" for your beautiful house. We loved it.

This beach house comes with EVERYTHING!!!

  • 5 of 5

I just wanted to say that we had an amazing time in the Ray of Sunshine house!! There were 15 of us! It was tight, but the outdoor covered porches and decks helped ease the cramped feeling. Having the golf cart was a HUGE plus! We were able to take the kids Pokeman hunting very often!! The boys set up horseshoes in the back yard and played ping pong quit a bit! If you are considering this house for your next vacation, I highly recommend it!!! Location is perfect!! Thank you so much for our little week of heaven!!
