Beachwalk is literally a short walk or a quick bike ride to Tigertail Beach. Since the property has 4 bikes, we were able to easily bike to the beach for a quick swim or a walk on the beach after dinner. The beach is very wide at this end, so if you're planning to spend a longer period of time there, it's best to bring along the chairs, umbrella and cooler, which you obviously cannot do on the bikes.
The property has a great pool and patio area as well, which we thoroughly enjoyed. There are just some days that we didn't feel like going to the beach and having the pool right there, made our vacation. Staying in our swimsuits and eating by the pool is one of those things we look forward to for a beach vacation.
The beds are fabulous. (The do need to add a couple flatter pillows for younger people) The kitchen is well appointed. The Sonos sound system in the house is really nice to have. (It would be nice if the speakers could be used with the TV to create a movie theatre effect in the living room.) The location is good for both beach access and grocery shopping. It's in a cozy neighborhood which made it nice for riding bikes.
The one drawback for this property is that it lacks some privacy. It's a corner lot on a narrow canal and since it's newly constructed, it's lacking mature vegetation that could create privacy when in the pool area. We were there in the slow season, so it wasn't too much of a bother for us, but it would have been had there been more people walking to and from the beach and/or biking in the neighborhood. There is a direct line of sight into the pool area when people are crossing the footbridge right next to the property. It was also a little bothersome to not have anything to create privacy on the front door or the patio doors in the evening.
All in all, this is a beautiful home in a great location. Everything is brand new and comfortable.
