What makes this house unique

this home is the best of both on the 30A side there is a coastal lake and on the other side is the beautiful beach and ocean views. We can see the sunsets, or have a fire in our sand covered yard. We love that you only walk about 500 feet to the beach access.

love,love,love the Gulf views!

  • 5 of 5

this house has beautiful Gulf views! We really enjoyed this location, it has Gulf views, lake views, and right across the street from Stinkys. Our whole family took advantage of the bikes provided. We biked to Topsail state park, Gulf Place, and enjoyed the proximity to all the shops and places to eat. Loved the way the house was decorated, it was very comfy and had plenty of games, dvds and books. Everything was clean and had everything we needed. Look forward to hopefully coming back again!

Owner's Response: it was a pleasure to have your family stay with us. I am so happy you got to visit Topsail State Park, it's only about a mile up the road with a dedicated bike route the whole way.It is a gem that a lot of families that visit 30A never realize that is here . Gulf Place is a great place for shopping, dining, and have a drink. We think we have some pretty great views too, please come back again.

3 stars because we enjoyed ourselves at the beautiful beach

  • 3 of 5

Everyone in our group agrees that this house does not belong on your site, despite good reviews. I have never been disappointed in any vacation that I've booked through VRBO until this one.Before booking, my friend and I read all the reviews. There were only 2 really bad ones, while the rest were positive.

As one review stated, we also could not get in upon arrival. I never received a confirmation letter with the code as the owner addressed that complaint, but I did remember that it was left unlocked. We walked right in. I tried calling the number listed on the wall, but there was no answer. I did reach the owner who directed me to the wall for both the code and management company. The code was not listed, and that was the number we called several times with no answer.Old Florida style/eclectic : it is. It could be a really eye-catching property if more maintenance would be done. The decor is beachy and homey, though the furniture is a bit run down. The sleeper sofa is broken.Distance to the beach is accurate. The view is beautiful.Beds are comfortable, and the kitchen is well-stocked. There are some things that just need to be thrown out. There are pieces of appliances in the pantry and cabinets. We had to buy towels before everyone with us could shower. I know we have to do laundry, but if a property has a number of people that can stay, there are ususally enough towels for the first round of showers. There were only 2 dish towels, so we bought those as well.The bikes were a great plus, although only 3 were used...the others were on flats. The kayak was fun. The rest of the beach supplies were dirty, moldy, and /or broken. The cleaning company should either go through the storage boxes and porches to clean and organize or just through what's not usable. The swing that looked so appealing in the listing was broken and just thrown on the side of the house.The front porch furniture is rusted and in very bad shape. In the back, the cushions need to be replaced.The refrigerator does not keep anything really cold. The directions on the wall state not to change the settings, so we just kept a lot of our things in ice chests. The bottom drawer in the refrigerator does not cool at all. Again, directions were given not ro lower the AC below 70. It was never 70 in the house; it hovered at 73/74. Cleaning the filthy grill intake and filter may help. We bought fans for every room. Small roaches (kitchen), ants in the bathroom sink, rat family under steps.

Owner's Response: We are so sorry you had problems, we have addressed these with local management company , and will make a change if necessary.The living room sofas were just replaced with brand new ones, the moment someone reported it. The cleaner has been replaced. New outdoor furniture is also being replaced, we have not stayed there all summer and the management company did not make us aware it had rusted. I am happy you enjoyed the beach, the comfy beds, the kayak, the bikes and the fact it was well stocked.

Roomy and bright

  • 3 of 5

The place was pretty, could have used a good cleaning. Even though it is not on the beach it is an easy walk down to the water. We had a good stay.

Beautiful ocean view and easy walk to Beach.

  • 4 of 5

We arrived at 5pm on check in day to the home having not been cleaned. Called the number provided for owner and left a voicemail letting them know the place hadn't been touched by a cleaning crew yet. Call was promptly returned by the property manager and he was apologetic and sent out a crew as fast as he could. They arrived an hour later and started cleaning. Other than that one hitch the rest of our stay was great.

The ocean views from the back deck were beautiful. It was nice hearing the ocean and seeing it without paying the $$$ for direct ocean front access. The walk to the public beach access was an easy stroll. We brought our beach wagon to tote all our stuff and it worked out great. The Publix was close by for us to grab some groceries and they had $9.99 beach towels that worked great. Stinky's Seafood restaurant is across the street. We have a 5 and 2 year old, having that restaurant so close was clutch for easy lunch time meals. Husband would walk and pick up food to go. Taco Tuesday get the Trio taco meal!

We used the bikes provided every day. Went to Walmart and got a bike trailer for the kids to be pulled behind. Loved the bike trails that took you along 30A and to the different state parks. We even took them down to Grayton Beach area and ate at Local Catch restaurant. Really good food! The ice cream shop by Grayton Beach is amazing and you will not it when you see it. Always has a line but so worth it.

We had a really great stay. The home was perfect for us and would be great for two families to share. There is a master and guest room with bunk beds on each side of the home with each side getting a tub/shower combo. All rooms have tvs but we only used the family room tv for playoff NBA watching. We enjoyed doing a couple puzzles with our children on the large table. The a/c worked great but with sun on the skin I got hot at night. We used one fan we found and it helped a ton for sleeping.

The only complaints would be the yard has sticker weeds and our kids really couldn't play except for on the boardwalk and deck. We all got stickers stuck in our feet at some point. They hurt! We didn't end up using the fire pit area bc of that. The lot size is huge but the deck is so slim, wish it could be expanded.There also were not any cleaning items like windex or cleaning sprays. Wasn't a big deal I just like to keep things clean.

Really enjoyed our stay and even extended it a couple days! Really great deal for being so close to beach.

2nd time we've stayed here! great house and location!

  • 5 of 5

we love it here, quiet end of 30A, clean and neat, has that Old Florida feel, and the most beautiful sunsets off the deck. We love hearing the roar of the waves while grilling out or curled up with a good book. And yes we will come back a 3rd time if we get a chance.
