We stayed here as a group of 17, 8 adults and 9 kids. The bedroom layouts were perfect, with 4 queen/king bedrooms and 2 queen over queen bunk rooms. Each of the bunk rooms also had an additional twin mattresss underneath the bunk beds to increase sleeping capacity. Each queen/king bedroom had it's own full bathroom, in addition to a half bathroom with adjoining laundry right off the kitchen/living area downstairs. It was so nice to actually have a full sized washing machine and dryer!! The house was ready a little early the day of check in and I received a text letting me know we were able to enter early! Nice surprise!
The home was incredibly clean upon arrival. We did have a few small maintenance issues that were addressed very promptly. The pool and hot tub were a hit with our crew and our kids were in one or the other by 8am every morning!! The convenience to the beach was unmatched! Just walk right out to the sand!
The kitchen table was very large and allowed us to seat 10, plus 4 more at the bar stools. Outside there was a 6 seat dining table and 8 chaise loungers. Plenty of room for everyone!
The kitchen also included enough pots/pans/dishes for our crew and we ate most meals in the house due to the size of our group. There is a decent pantry to store grocery items as well. There was parking for 4 full sized vehicles in the driveway and the location is within walking distance of several restaurants and beach souvenir shops. Although we absolutely loved the home and would highly recommend, I will list just 2 things that were negatives, one fixable and one not.
1. Our week at the beach was pretty but INCREDIBLY windy with red flags almost every day. The beach in front of our house was essentially a wind tunnel because the property is among a row of 4 individual homes between 2, 22 floor high rise condos. I believe it probably gets excessive wind due to the location between the high rises, but it was incredibly intense (sand pelting you all over your body from every direction and sand tornadoes). It was noticeably windier in front of our home as opposed to other locations when we walked down the beach.
2. The shower to rinse off outside is essentially nonfunctional. The shower head kept falling off and sprayed water in all directions when it was attached. I would highly suggest the addition of a hose attachment down low to allow guests to rinse feet and legs easier. Due to the excess wind, we were covered in sand and found it almost impossible to rinse off with the current shower. Adults could somewhat rinse because of the height of the shower. For kids, it was impossible and resulted in a lot of excess sand up on the deck and presumably in the pool and hot tub.
Overall the house was PERFECT and we enjoyed our visit very much. The owners and management personnel were incredibly nice, easy to contact, and quick to respond. This prooperty will please your whole crew, and that's not an easy task!!
This house is roomy, comfortable and in a great location! The house sleeps 22 comfortably and the view is spectacular. Very close to the local shops, restaurants and beach excusions(jet ski, para sail etc). The management staff were excellent....very accomodating!
The house was beautiful the only suggestions I might have would be update on your pots and pans and the mattresses on the beds we're hard as it than that it was excellent we had a wonderful time thank you
The house has a great layout for large families. Immediate access to the beach from the house was a huge plus. The large deck overlooking the Gulf was a great place for all to sit, relax and visit. The close access to stores, restaurants, and entertainment places for family members of all ages was great. We would recommend this home to others who are looking for a great vacation getaway!
