Great views, gracious host, beautiful decor

  • 5 of 5

We have never done a vrbo before and found this to be a fabulous experience. The process was seamless. The owner was accommodating to our senior dogs. We had one that we called this his bucket list trip as we weren't sure his 17 year old body was going to allow him to go. He had the time of his life romping on the beach just feet from our deck. The owner provided a nice dog bed, some dog treats, some bug spray for dusk walks and some popcorn for us too. The inside decor was very pretty, new, and clean with beach colors blue and green. Owner provided beach chairs that we sat in and read books, a kayak, and a beautiful upstairs and downstairs space to relax. Owner was one call away if we needed, but we did not as all was very easy, simple, and the little things provided for.

We will definitely return!!

Wonderful vacation spot

  • 5 of 5

This was a wonderful relaxed vacation. Great location and very private. The house is clean and has amazing views of the ocean. This is a great place for a family of 5. It was a little tight for our family of 6. It has everything you need.

Great Vacation!

  • 4 of 5

Perfect beach house for a family of 4. Updated amenities and appliances and proximity to beach is perfect. Loved the boardwalk from deck to the beach.

Misleading Photos

  • 2 of 5

The photos are misleading. These photos make the home look spacious, but as you drive up, it looks like a Smurf house (my family's name for it). This home is essentially 1 large room at beach level: a combined living area, small dining table and small kitchen. There is also a very small bathroom (toilet and sink only) on beach level. All bedrooms and 2 full bathrooms are sub-level; the house is built into a hill, so a major portion of it is essentially underground. The stairs are an extremely tight-fitting spiral stairway that my large-sized husband and son could not even fit on; they had to walk around the outside of the house to get into the main level.

Additionally, quite a few things in this house are quite cheaply put together. The air-conditioner was on the fritz the ENTIRE time we were there. Rather than central air, there are individual units in each room. The owner tried to get the AC fixed, but couldn't find a contractor to respond quickly enough. Needless to say, although I'm ok with limited AC, my husband and sons were not. The owner originally offered compensation for the lack of AC, but I think that's gone for the most part because apparently, some scratches my dog made on a downstairs bedroom door will cost "$550 to repair". I don't even care about the reimbursement. The bantering back and forth with the owner, after trying to ignore a multitude of issues, has been the final straw for us.

Several other items were very tenuous: very cheap curtain rods fell off every time we tried to move the curtains, the one single TV in the house is placed very high up (close to the ceiling in the living area) and is quite hard to watch, my sons pulled it away from the wall to see it better (the owner is now accusing us of breaking the HDMI cord), the boardwalk to the beach is ancient, broken in places (with nails) and full of splinters (my husband got a horrible one). The only seating in the living room is the large couch. If you want to sit together as a family, you must pull over a dining room chair.

The positives: the house is directly on the beach, the beach is private, and the balcony is very large and gives a beautiful view of the beach.

Owner's Response: You can easily tell from ALL other reviews that this review is slanderous and we are in the process of suing these guests. The humans & their dogs destroyed the home & refused to sign the insurance claim. When the AC started to turn itself off at 3AM, I asked them to check the remotes for auto timers that could mess up system. They assured me they had and that was not the problem, $450 later in emergency HVAC visits...that WAS the problem. They wanted to leave 2 days early & be credited. I agreed, but housekeeping found the guests squatting in the home & she had not really left. Here is a quoted text message from these guests. "Your place is beautiful! We love it and can't wait to return!" This Guest was the only guests out of a hundred who we've had any issues with as you can see from our REAL reviews.

Beautiful property!

  • 5 of 5

Thoroughly enjoyed the stay! Great view of the gulf, short walk to the beach (uncrowded!) & the owner even arranged good weather for the stay. Well stocked kitchen and comfortable accommodations made the stay very enjoyable.
