No brainer! Book this home!

  • 5 of 5

This is my first online review ever. I use reviews but have never felt compelled to write one until now. All of the ingredients for a great trip are here!

Bamboo was a perfect fit for our party of 13 - 8 adults, 5 kids (6mo, 3, 3, 5, 7 yo). We put 2 adults in the crows nest, 2 adults + 1 pack-and-play in lower queen BR, 2 adults + 1 pnplay + 1 toddler in full BR w/futon, 2 adults + 2 kids in master BR. One pnplay on site at Bamboo in perfect condition. We rented another pnplay and a bouncy seat for the 6 mo old from a local service. We relocated a mattress from a sofa pull-out to the spacious master for the 5 and 7 year old kids.

We shopped for food at Publix, a grocery store in Gulf Breeze (about 10 min away by car). Loads of prep space in kitchen. Kitchen is open to living space so very social time prepping and cooking meals. Not to mention, beach view is fantastic. Plenty of pots, pans, storage containers, dishes and utensils, even wine glasses! We loved having a grill. Smallish charcoal grill took awhile to heat and cook for big group, but all the grilling accessories/tools one could dream of including grill baskets.

We made use of great set of binoculars to watch a Blue Angel fly-by, a rainbow, windsurfers, sea birds. We liberally used flashlights to explore the beach at night finding crabs. Skimboards, wakeboards, pool noodles, a tentlike beach shelter, beach umbrellas, tons of chairs and beach towels, toy box full of fun on back porch all made available.

W&D so handy especially with small kids. Extra fridge w/ freezer in the garage for ice, icey beverages and more. Outdoor shower with warm water, oh la la.

We realized after a few days of hunting shells, that finding intact shells and sand dollars is so difficult! It must take years of tireless committed beachcombing to accumulate the type and number of intact and unique shells at Bamboo. The family's collection is a treasure trove! How the shells are incorporated is also tasteful and beautiful.

We brought a Bose wireless speaker to play off our phones and lived on the incredible back porch. The back porch swing got tons of use.

We love this home. It is cheerful, inviting and perfectly appointed. It is one special place.

Outstanding Beach House!

Location and layout of the house made it perfect for our family reunion. The master bedroom is large and comfortable and the open kitchen and great room made for great conversation with our large family.

Picturesque wedding!!!

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely the most accommodating house we have stayed in yet!! We only had to buy groceries and we were set. The house was perfect for our family wedding. The huge master suite made for a perfect place for the bridesmaids to get ready together while others set up the reception area on the screened in porch. The walkway from the porch to the beach was the perfect scene for our little bride and her wedding party to make their way to the beach. Our view was breathtaking, as will be the pictures I am sure. Thank you Bamboo Beach House!!! Best Day Ever!!

A great house. Really loved that it felt like an old Florida home.

  • 5 of 5

A really great house. And our host Andrea was the best-felt like an old friend even before we left home before our vacation. It has a walkway down to beach-although house is very close to beach-but with carrying all our beach stuff down it was great. Suited for all ages.Had a pac-n-play in closet-along with laundry holders and a fan plus many extra extra sheets ,towels, paper towels,toilet paper and cleaning supplies. I've never had that before in a rental.

And if you love seashells like I do,you'll be in heaven. Not only at the beach but house is decorated with lots of shells.

There is something for everyone at this house-games, tvs. movies,even beach toys for the kids along with the cutest basket on back deck full of flip-flops!

OH, and the best. a swing on the back deck!

I could go on and on about but maybe you'll just want to check it out yourself!

Thank you Andrea for taking such good care of this beautiful house for our wonderful vacation. couldn't ask for anything more!

Williams,Acre, Gardner and Watley Thank you!
