Very nice house!

  • 4 of 5

Overall loved the house. Parking for this house very small if you have a big vehicle. Lucky no one ever checked in to the house next to us because our truck was to big to stay on our side of the pavers. The only other thing I would change is the tv in the upstairs king bed room could be placed in a better location so it can been seen better. Maybe next to the closet or in the corner over the dresser so it can be seen by both sides of the bed. Loved the huge porches. Some of the beds were a little hard but not unbearable. Overall we really enjoyed our stay!

Excellent location, well furnished, unpack and play!

  • 4 of 5

We were skeptical about photos and the reality of our home away from home and what it would actually be. The home was exactly as described and in good order. The staff was quick to act regarding any question or need. The kids noticed that their television had no sound, staff had the tv swapped within one hour.

The pools were great! The laundry machine for 6 adults with 6 kids was beyond its worth. The bathrooms all updated and the rooms very nice and comfortable. The kitchen area was amazing and we had enough room for all 12 of us to have an abundance of elbow room. The microwave and oven came in very handy as well.

With having your own private area for the beach you didn't have to fight for a spot. the only surprise was that the "front" row of the beach was taken by umbrellas and chairs that you could rent for the day. And they didn't move. It was a nuisance to get around them especially when others rented them and had their things on the ground. BUT once your past it and in the water it really didn't matter. It's not a deal breaker, but I was happy to sit in front of them for free, with the tides keeping us cool.

This was a great experience and I would come back to this area.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the great review and the kind words regarding this lovely 5 Bedroom home. We are glad to hear that you enjoyed your time here and that our team was able to help make your stay enjoyable! We look forward to having you stay with us again sometime; we have great fall/winter rates right now (and the beaches tend to be a little less crowded in the off-season, which is a bonus)!

Excellent Vacation!!!

  • 5 of 5

We rented A Shore Thing for our family event. We had three families and the layout of the house was absolutely perfect for us! The home was in excellent condition, extremely clean, and had all of the items we needed. We loved all of the patios and how close it was to the beach. The security at the beach cabana was great and kept a great eye to ensure we didn't leave anything. We have no complaints about the house at all. The neighborhood pools were small but not busy and well kept. The only thing I would recommend is more garbage bags for the kitchen. Would recommend to anyone as there are rooms on each of the three floors. Also recommend getting to the beach early.

Owner's Response: We are happy to hear that you enjoyed A Shore Thing! It is a lovely and spacious home that's super convenient to the beach and the neighborhood pools. We're glad to hear that you had such a great experience with the security at the Emerald Shores beach cabana as well. Thank you for joining us, we hope that you'll stay with us again!

Needs TLC

  • 2 of 5

This is the second year in a row that we have been disappointed with our vacation rental. This home needed some TLC. Most of the blinds were broke so you couldn't open then, as well as, none of them had any window treatments, so around 5:30am it was very bright in the rooms. The kitchen was very limited in supplies, we are a family that likes to cook while we are on vacation & had a difficult time doing that. The community pools were nice, but nothing to exciting. We will be looking at other companies to rent from in the future.

Owner's Response: We are sorry that you were disappointed with your stay. We haven't had other comments about the blinds or lack of window treatments but will have an inspector assess the home. We wish that you had contacted us about feeling that the kitchen contained limited supplies. We keep kitchen supplies in our warehouse and would have been happy to bring you what you needed. We provide our guests with an app to contact us, phone numbers and email addresses, so that you can reach us in case issues arise. We have photos of the neighborhood pools on our website, so that our guests know what to expect. We hope that you enjoyed the close access to the beach and were able to enjoy the free activities included in the RealJOY Fun Pass and DVD Rentals. It always saddens us to hear that a guest didn't enjoy an accommodation and that we could have made it better had we received a call. It doesn't look like you've stayed with us before, we hope that you will consider staying with us again, and call us if you need us.
