Great House, Great Natural Beach, Great Little Town

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time in Carrabelle. It is a wonderful little beach community. No traffic, no traffic lights, cute little shops (Beach Traders and Christy's). The IGA had everything we needed. We all enjoyed the fireworks display, over the water, at the marina. Fathoms Raw Bar is the best ! We heard some excellent bands and had some great food. It has a very nice crescent beach with sugar white sand and sea oats. It is mostly undeveloped, natural, and wildlife is abundant. Parts of it are being managed as a preserve for nesting sea birds. It is all but miles of your own private beach through the week. Weekends there is some activity but still very uncrowded and user friendly . The house is very close to the beach with a nice view of the water. Newer home, nice and clean, with a "beachy feel". Can't wait to come back.

Air conditioning was out!

  • 1 of 5

We rented this beautiful home for 7 days and 4 out of 7 the air conditioner was out 😩 After returning home we requested a partial refund as we could not even enjoy as it was very humid and hot. Sleeping there was not comfortable and hanging around to enjoy home was not comfortable. Property management contacted owners and did what they could to reach a reasonable refund. The owners would only settle for $100 refund or $100 credit toward a future rental. We were not expecting a full refund but did expect a reasonable amount back as we could not cook nor enjoy our stay. We had to make other arrangements for sleeping, cooking and other activities because of this inconvenience. Truthfully this amount was an insult as we paid full price for a beach rental we could not enjoy. This was not a reasonable refund and we will feel owners should have been fair and reasonable which they were not. I would think any owner that rents a home would at least try to compensate for a major inconvenience to its renters who pay full price for a beach house and have taken a week of their vacation to relax.

Owner's Response: We at Sandy Beach strive hard to accommodate all of our guests. When we were notified about the A/C unit not performing correctly we called our local Licensed HVAC Service Co.. He was at the house that same day. The unit was cooling and running correctly at the time he arrived there. The next day the tenants called again and stated the unit was not cooling. The repair man returned to the home in the afternoon, he couldn't find anything wrong with the unit , it was cooling and performing properly once again. We offered to move the tenants at this time, they were super nice and didn't want to move. We advised them that all the doors and windows needed to be closed so the AC would not run continuously. We had thought the problem was fixed, however, the guest reported the unit cut off and did not cool the house . We contacted the owner every time we had to send the repair man back out. The problem has since been resolved, the unit is working great! Once the tenants called us after leaving the home and asked for a refund due to the inconvenience, we contacted the owner again. He offered them $100.00 refund or one free night stay if they would come back and visit us again. Unfortunately, problems do arise that can not be solved as quickly as we would like. A move to a new home was the best remedy we could offer.

July Trip

  • 5 of 5

WOW! Great house ! All new and on a very quiet lane. Very nice and peaceful place to get away. Stroll on the beach and see the diversity in the waters or just hang on the beach and enjoy the sights and sounds of the nature around you. Take a kayak down the Little Carrabelle to the bay - a nice trip even for a novice. Go to Millenders for some fresh catch and the BEST crab cakes! Take a trip to Apalach for the gelato at the Chocolate Co. too ! I would highly recommend a stay here and cannot wait to get back.

Great House!

  • 4 of 5

This is a great vacation home! Everything is new, tastefully decorated in an Ikea theme, comfy and clean. The house is very private and tucked away on a private lane. We absolutely loved the feel of this home and it has so many amenities. The touristy crowd has not yet found its way to Carabelle and this little town still holds on to its old Florida charm. The beaches are quiet and beautiful with lots of shells, starfish and the fishing was great. Apalachicola is nearby and the 4th of July holiday was spent there enjoying an amazing free outdoor concert, ice cream and fireworks on the bay. Would definitely recommend this home for a quiet peaceful beach getaway!

Great House

  • 5 of 5

Had a nice time in Carrabelle staying at this house. The house is very new, clean and nicely furnished (it met/exceeded my wife's rental standards for both cleanliness and comfort which is not easy to do). Its also very "guest ready" in the sense that everything is clearly labelled and easy to use (a/c, lights, fans, locks, etc.). Beach is great - very private. Walking distance to restaurants. Lots to see and do in the immediate area. Recommended.

Brand New House

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful NEW house at Carrabelle Beach. Everything is brand new. Very nicely furnished, very comfortable. The master bed is a queen size Tempur-Pedic ! Two large covered decks with a view of the water in the front. Every bedroom has a private sun deck too. The beach was like our own private beach, there were times when we saw no one else while on our mile long walks on the sugar white sand beach. Many different sea birds & dolphin were our only companions. We will defiantly be back.
