An excellent house at the beach.

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 15 stayed in this house during the Fourth of July week, and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. The house was clean and beautifully appointed and equipped, without pretense. The pool was loads of fun and, somewhat to our surprise, we appreciated the use of the facilities offered by the condo located between this house and the beach. Although we would have preferred an ocean-front property, the walk to the beach took only 3 minutes or so, and was certainly not burdensome. We would stay in this house again, with the slightest hesitation.

So far the best location we have stayed in the last 7 years.

  • 4 of 5

The house is lovely and spacious. It is a little dated but overall nicely decorated. It would have been great if there was a full bath for each of the six bedrooms instead of only 4. The pool was great but we had to call about the pump on 3 occasions. There are beach items and a cart available for use which was great. Also, having bicycles was great.

Absolutely PERFECT!

  • 5 of 5

We just left Playing Hookey today, and we all cannot get over how perfect this house was. It has ample space, is very clean, and the short walk to the beach was easy, even for the small kids in our group. We all want to stay in this house again next year!

Amazing house south of 30A!!

  • 5 of 5

Our extended family enjoyed a week at this great house! The house with two refrigerators, with a small drink fridge downstairs + a separate icemaker was wonderful! Large bedrooms on all three floors helped separate people in a really nice way. The location is really convenient to restaurants and activities nearby. The walk to the beach through San Remo was closer and easier than we had anticipated. Our grown kids loved the access to the San Remo workout room and went every morning. Kitchen and seating was so great, we ate several meals in!! Can't go wrong booking Playing Hooky on 30A!!

Wonderful family vacation

  • 4 of 5

The house was very nice and spacious. The bedroom downstairs now has a king size bed not twin beds. The bunk room was wonderful for our children and we liked the safety alarm going out to pool. It was very nice having a pool and they have a lot of toys for pool and beach. There is no view of the ocean from the third floor. I do wish you did not have to put the code in every time you entered the house.

We were very close to the ice cream shop, which was a hit for all of us.

I would rent the home again because it was in very good condition and very spacious.
