Double Down was an awesome house for our beach vacation! We had 8 adults and 11 kids, and there was plenty of room for everyone. Each couple had a room, the kids enjoyed the bunk rooms, and we had room to spare. It didn’t feel like we were all on top of each other. The common areas are nice and large. Both kitchens were well stocked, with everything we needed. The outdoor shower with warm water was greatly appreciated, especially with all the kids!
The best features of this house are: 1. Proximity to the beach. It’s right across the street. This strip of beach is perfect too, with white sand and low dunes. 2. The top deck, where you can watch the sun set on the water. We also saw dolphins several times while lounging on the deck—that’s how close to the water it is. 3. The decor and style of the house is wonderful…no expense was spared to make this a truly comfortable and stylish place to relax. 4. Clarissa was incredibly helpful, answering our questions and helping us with suggestions about the area. Renting this house was more like an Airbnb experience in that way. One family in our party actually left an iPad in the house and didn’t realize it was missing until Clarissa called. She really went out of her way to take care of us.
Everything we needed was close by, from groceries to restaurants to sailboat rentals. I noticed one of the other reviews mentioned some construction noise…we didn’t hear a thing. We enjoyed a dream vacation and will definitely return again!
These properties were perfect for our wedding reception, but frankly, they would be pefect for any form of entertainment, family vacation, or just a getaway. It housed our friends and family(40) for four days and nights. No expense was spared for decor, amenities, or convenience. We forgot beach chairs, they had them, we wanted a shade tent, it was there, we were worried about water pressure with five bathrooms, there was no loss or temperasure fluctuation. The beach is less than a football field away, and shopping, grocery, and convenient stores are within 5 minutes. Clarissa and Jason answered any questions or concerns we had leading up to, and during our visit. They happened to be out of country when we were there, but had someone available for any possible issues. Enough cannot be said about these properties, first class owners and properties all around! More importantly than our opinion, all of our guests felt the same! Book it, don't look anywhere else!
Clarissa was wonderful to work with, responded to questions quickly and even helped me navigate some vrbo customer service issues. I would highly recommend renting either of her houses based on her customer service alone but her house is also beautiful and definitely worth renting again.
We rented this house for a group of Newlyweds from church for a long Labor Day weekend trip. Here are some quotes from people who stayed at Double Down:
The house was easy to find, clean and welcoming when we got there. Great view and easy beach access. Great combination of privacy with the bedrooms tucked away and open common areas. Awesome collection of games. Nice TVs in every room. - John
Exactly what we were looking for! We had the ability and space to have fun and interact with other guests on the trip and, with floor plan of the house, also allowed us to getaway and have intentional time with our spouses when we wanted to. Amazing amenities and location. I have already recommended this house to others. - Isaac
The house was amazing! We loved the decor and the comfortable feel of the place. It really made the time feel like a vacation and a place easy to relax. We loved the quick access to the beach we would definitely recommend it to friends and want to come back again. - Deb
The house was beautiful and had every amenity we could possibly need-- plus it was both elegant and kid-friendly. The beach was easily accessible, well maintained, and not too busy. Also, shopping, groceries, and restaurants were all close by. Thank you for a dream vacation! - Holly Anne
We just loved Double Down. It is huge and beautiful. We had 15 adults and 14 children. There was a room for every adult married couple and the bunk bed rooms were perfect for the children. Cousins who don't see each other often made some lasting memories. The access to the white sand beach and sparkling clear ocean was right across the street. It was a perfect background for our family pictures. Dreams came true as we went deep sea fishing, rode horses on the beach, swam with the dolphins, collected lots of sea shells, rode the waves, and had a wonderful house to come to for relaxing and making more memories. Every member felt it was a successful and fun time, and I am sure it had a lot to do with all the room the home provided. We were able to all be together in one room or, if needed a little quiet time, we could go to our own private room. Everyone commented on how the outside noise could not be heard inside and the only noise heard between floors was the pattering of feet on the stairs. Clarissa was a gracious host and quick to respond to all of our inquiries. We greatly appreciate that this home was available and within our budget. This is a memory that will be talked about for many years to come.
We looked for a place that could accommodate our large family that had beach access, pool, enough separation where we weren't on top of one another and.we found it. :). Not to mention the house is new and has all the amenities of home. We will be keeping this house on our list for the future and I highly recommend this to any large family. If there is anything that I would say is negative was the construction going on next door. They started early and a little loud out by the pool. Sometimes that happens.....other than that it was AWESOME!
We saw the construction photos in December 2015 and took a chance on the Double Down for our July 2016 Family Vacation. We are extremely glad we did. The ocean views are gorgeous. Even when you are inside the large second floor kitchen/living/dining area, you know that you are at the beach thanks to an expansive wall of windows. The balconies provide great living space and were wonderful for watching 4th of July fireworks. The backyard pool is modest sized, but the kids enjoyed it. There were often 6 or 7 of them in the pool at one time, and they didn't have a problem making it work. The outdoor shower was very helpful, and our grill master Jim was thrilled with the green, egg-shaped grill.
The beach was just across the road, the sand was soft and sugary, and the water was that lovely green-blue color. We experienced a little seaweed during our visit, but it is the ocean. This stretch of beach is also pleasant because it is not overly crowded. We set-up our umbrellas and chairs in the same spot each day. The house does have some beach towels and a few beach chairs, but if you are driving, I would recommend bringing some of your own, especially if you have a large group. Otherwise, the Publix, Winn Dixie and dollar stores are within a couple of miles of the house, and they each carry these sorts of items.
Our group included infants, toddlers, children, tweens, teenagers, adults, and Grandpa NoNo, who is 83. Grandpa NoNo said Yes! Yes! to this beautiful beach house. He was impressed with how well stocked the kitchen was, as were the rest of us. We had four different family units, so the two kitchens and nine bedrooms were perfect. Everyone commented on how comfortable the mattresses were. The kids particularly enjoyed the foosball table and other games in the third floor living room.
Clarissa was always timely and pleasant in her communications regarding the property. She has created a well-designed and beautifully appointed vacation home. Our family highly recommends this large, comfortable beach house.
Offering the best of all worlds, just to the west is well-known 30A and the beautiful beaches of South Walton. If the beach is why you came, you won't be disappointed. If walking 15 steps to the access boardwalk is your idea of a perfect beach spot, then this is the place you want to be! Our property has not just one but two public beach access points (89 and 90) literally across the street. There are no high rise condos or hotels on this stretch, no commercial traffic and limited public parking so you will have the beach practically all to yourself!
Need to shop for supplies, grab some cash from the ATM, get a mani-pedi, enjoy dining with gators...All of of that and more is available just 1 mile to the west of us making your stay a vehicle optional if you wish to park it and leave it. Just down the block is a fantastic locals place called Sunnyside Café offering casual dining or a great place to sip your first cup of morning coffee before you cross the street and get your toes in the sand.
Just 2.4 miles to the east, an easy bike ride or scenic walk along dedicated beach if you choose, you will come upon two of the more famous Laguna Beach landmarks. Carousel Supermarket is a not-so-hidden gem offering one stop shopping for locals and guests, high quality groceries, packaged liquor, and the largest wine selection in PCB. Having a craving for something sweet or the best breakfast sandwich along the beach? You will want make a pit stop at Thomas Donut and Snack Shop. Get there early for the best selection and be sure to buy a few extra donuts for later, you will be glad you did!
Famous Pier Park with all of the restaurants, stores, dog-friendly beach and fishing pier are a mere 10 minute drive so there is never a shortage of activities no matter what your group wants to do.
For anyone looking to enjoy all that PCB has to offer but without the crowds, there is no better place to be. We like to call it 30A East because you get all of the benefits of being so close but without the higher prices and all of the action of Pier Park nearby but without the crowds and traffic! It is a perfect little oasis in the heart of it all!
