|Minimum Stay||3 - 7 nights|
Peace & Joy is the ultimate getaway! Whether you're looking for a couples' retreat filled with relaxation or a vacation filled with fun family time, this is the house for you. An open floor plan for the kitchen, living and dining rooms looks out to the pool through large picture windows. In the living room, a 47' wall-mounted TV with Wii gaming system and DVD player give the prospect for some post-beach family bonding. Three king bedrooms (one on the first floor with a four piece bathroom), an upstairs bunk room and a downstairs sleeper sofa allow ample room for rest.
Relaxation and fun come in the form of the gorgeous backyard pool, hot tub and fire pit. The garage has been converted to a game room complete with a new ping pong table. Four adult bikes and one youth bike are provided with the rental as are beach chairs, boogie boards, a variety of floats and toys, and beach umbrellas. Speaking of the beach, it is only a short 1-2 minute walk away (approximately 500 feet) while Seaside, filled with dining and shopping opportunities, is a quick 1/2 mile bike ride west. Book now to ensure you get your dates!
SPRING BREAK GUESTS: Please note we no longer rent to 2 or 3 adults who are bringing a group of teenagers. However, we will gladly rent to families (parents and/or grandparents coming with their own children) or a group of adults.
We just wanted to let you know what a delightful time we had at Peace & Joy over Thanksgiving....We also made use of your fire pit one evening and created more wonderful family memories there. The open floor plan downstairs was particularly awesome for everyone to be doing different things but still be able to talk to each other. We also made use of the ping pong table and bikes and ended up renting a golf cart which made parking a "non issue" wherever we went. We all felt like you definitely spent some extra money on the mattresses as well which was greatly appreciated....We wish you all well and hope you have a Merry Christmas! It is very possible we may rent your property again sometime in the future.
The location is great. Super short walk to beach, short bike ride into Seaside. The cart is great for hauling beach chairs and supplies, but there are stairs down to the beach so you'll have to park the cart.
The pool, hot tub, grill, and beach supplies are nice. The pool is a great size for family enjoyment. The ping pong table and bikes are decent. One bike had a broken pedal, but it was still useable.
The house itself is fine, but the dresser and TV in the bunkroom could use an update. The house was surfacely clean, but it could use a baseboard/cabinet drawers/carpet cleaning. The garage definitely needs a cleaning. On the whole, the house was acceptable and plenty spacious for our family of 5. It was stocked well, and all the appliances worked.
We really enjoyed just hanging out in the backyard bc there were jellyfish purple flags. The heated pool... totally worth it.
We would definitely stay here again. It might be my favorite beach rental ever. I'd choose this house over a beachfront condo in Destin or PCB anyday.
Our family really enjoyed our time in this house. The house is on a quiet street without much traffic. The location near the beach was perfect, just a short walk down the street. You do have to cross to the other side of 30A, but there is a crosswalk and cars were really great about stopping for us. The garage was full of beach toys and had several beach chairs available for use as well. This was a huge plus! We also loved having the bikes as this saved us from paying for rentals for the week. We biked into Seaside and also rode up and down 30A. We really enjoyed having a pool right there in the backyard. There was plenty of room for the adults to sit on the porch and watch the kids swim. There were books, puzzles, games, and movies provided as well. The owners have done a great job of making sure guests are well taken care of!
It did seem like the cleaning company could have been a little more thorough, and there were several items that we felt should have been provided (several bathrooms had been left without any hand soap and there were no extra trash bags - we ended up having to go to the store for both of these things).
Overall this was a great place to stay and we'd definitely come back!
The owners of this property have gone above and beyond to make ours a pleasant stay! There was tons of room and the house was in very close proximity to the beach and Seaside.
Our teenage children had plenty to do and not once complained of being bored. They swam, played pingpong, board games (which they never had much interest in before), UNO and even worked in a puzzle-all made available at the unit.
Very nice experience and we left with wonderful memories from our week long stay. We're looking forward to next year's return visit!
Overall the house was great for our needs...4 adults, 4 teens and 2-11 year olds. The teenagers had a great time as you are plenty close to Seaside and all the teenage activity. The pool and hot tub were perfect......and the pool was heated and perfect size for our group. Access to beach is as advertised....just a short walk and the cart made taking everything easy. The ping pong table and laundry in the garage worked out great. We cooked out on the grill a couple times and kitchen is plenty big for your needs. Bed rooms are all very good size and the living space worked perfect....including the Wii. Downside to our stay. The downstairs bathroom is shared with bedroom, beach furniture is not good and bikes were disappointing. I know you can't have everything but the pictures of those items are not accurate. Overall we had a great week and certainly loved the location, access to beach and heated pool.
House fit our needs perfectly. We had 6 adults and 4 kids and we fit very comfortably, the bunks off the master suite were perfect. This house has the best pool area we have ever come across in a rental. Tons of space, plenty of lounges and chairs, and privacy. Also, the provided bikes, pool/ beach toys, beach chairs, and umbrellas were a huge plus. Short 2 minute walk to the beach was as advertised, the location of this house is great. Close to Seaside and all the shops, yet tucked away so it feels like you're miles from anyone. Only issue we had with this property was that the cleaning service must have been rushed before we arrived. We needed to sweep the carpets and floors the day we got there. All in all we would recommend this house to anyone looking for a family vacation home.
Place worked out very well for family get together. Furnished nicely and close to the be beach. I would cut down trees in the yard that made a mess of the pool and hot tub, and downstairs carpet could use steam cleaning. All in all, a great vacation time.
