Spacious with Beach Views

By: Trip Date: 2022-05-09
A beautiful home right on the gulf with large bedrooms and baths. Great kitchen and living space. The only reason I gave a 4 instead of 5 stars is because the hot water is an issue. We only had five people staying but still ran out even though we tried to space out our showers. We also, had a gas leak while there but it was taken car of quickly by Beach Blue Property management. It is a beautiful place!

Excellent Property

By: Trip Date: 2022-03-30
Excellent location. Beautiful property with space for me and my family.

Great place to celebrate 10 years

By: Trip Date: 2022-03-24
We rented 2 properties for over 20 family members including ourselves. The accommodations were fantastic and in a great location close the beach and the iconic Pompano Joe’s. Everyone enjoyed their stays immensely. Thanks again!

House was great for 4 couples. Excellent location and great access to the private beach. Kitchen was well equipped and amenities were as described. Cleanliness was satisfactory with the exception of the exterior windows looking out toward the beach. I know the salt air gets them dirty quick but they were pretty bad. I cleaned them myself and what a difference it made. I would recommend this house to others.

Wonderful

Love everything about the property.

Perfect week!

By: Trip Date: 2021-08-14
We had a wonderful time! This location was perfect! Communication was good and had pretty much everything we needed. Would rent again in a heartbeat!

Perfect location and Almost Perfect House

By: Trip Date: 2021-08-07
The location couldn't be better.
Loved big kitchen and table. Loved the little pool shaded by balcony. Loved that every room had its own bathroom.
Read other reviews so thankfully brought our own pans!
Master bedroom enormous so would expect big sumptuous bed you sink into with nice fluffy down comforter - no. It is very minimal and I called it the concrete block. Back hurt more and more each morning. All mattresses really hard.
I agree with other reviews house needs refreshing. A/C vents look coated in dust but may just be rusted - easy fix. Beautiful staircase but with 80's yellow oak full of dings and scratches and really stained carpeting. Walls up staircase a mess. Refinish stairs, replace upstairs carpet, a little paint, upgrade mattresses and put some pans in the kitchen and you have the perfect luxurious vacation rental. It's a great house it just needs some love.
Also bring hangers. Gigantic closets but no shirt hangers. And the gate to the beach doesn't open, but it's a quick walk to the next one that does. We were grateful for the umbrella and beach chairs provided in the garage.

Simply glorious and amazing vacation

Magnificent Location But Home Needs Repairs

By: Trip Date: 2021-05-22
This is the second time I have stayed in this property in the past three years. The big draw is obviously the location...you can't beat it. It is literally across the road from the beach and you can see the ocean from the master upstairs. There is access to a private beach which was a HUGE plus due to the crowds.

That said, the home is more run down each time we stay in it. I remember reporting the fact that the downstairs patio door doesn't lock, when I stayed there three years ago, and it still isn't fixed. We had no hot water at the kitchen sink, upstairs master bedroom patio door won't close, upstairs bunk bedroom shower door won't close, light bulbs are burned out, return air vent in kitchen is disgusting, downstairs master towel holder falls of the wall, there are tears in furniture, and the list goes on.

So, if you don't mind putting up with these types of things, this is the home for you. I will probably be looking for another place to stay next year.

Beautiful House

By: Trip Date: 2021-05-17
We stayed at this home with 3 other young families, 7 kids between us! This house had more than enough room, was very clean and was absolutely beautiful. Was there wear and tear? Yes, but we expect that from any high demand rental home and it didn’t bother us at all (although the kitchen faucet being replaced would still be a plus). The master bedroom was unbelievable, gorgeous view and luxury feeling. All the rooms were very generous sized with large closets and bathrooms. The master closet especially was like it’s own bedroom. There were just a few cons to note. Number one being the mattresses- we all agreed that the mattresses did not fit in with the rest of the house, they felt cheap and worn out. It wouldn’t keep us from renting again by any means, but after the beauty of the house it wasn’t what you expected when you laid down. The second was the floors- they were obviously vacuumed and the house was very clean, expect the floors actually being mopped or deep cleaned. The last thing is more a note, because it wouldn’t be a con to everyone- the area. We didn’t realize the amount of college students who would be in the area, some partying late into the night. Had nothing to do with the house, but for other travelers with young kids who want something a little more sedated, it’s worth noting. Overall we loved our stay and used the pool everyday, we were so grateful for the excellent accommodations!

Great location

By: Trip Date: 2021-05-01
The location was perfect. Beach Access was directly across the street. The house does need some updating, but nothing to complain about. We ended up having to BUY beach chairs, BUY beach umbrellas and BUY coolers because nothing was located on the property. This rental also needs more seating for outside around the pool. I would highly recommend this rental- and the next renter- YOU ARE VERY WELCOME that we left all the beach chairs, coolers and umbrella's for your use!

Beautiful location

By: Trip Date: 2021-03-20
This home is in a lovely neighborhood with a relatively private beach and is a good way to escape from crowds. The home itself is quite roomy with an excellent layout, however, it is in need of updates (e.g., sliding door handles, sink faucets, showers) and a deep cleaning (e.g, kitchen faucets, appliances, the air vent in the kitchen above the laundry). Because of the pandemic, we had expected that high touch surfaces would be cleaned well, but this might need to done per a specific request. In the kitchen, all appliances, kitchen faucets, light switches, etc. had fingerprints and food on them indicating that they are not on the cleaning checklist. The table top and counters still had food bits on them. It was disappointing to arrive at such a beautiful place and clean it ourselves, particularly for the high cost of the rental. While we did not reach out to the rental company about this issue, I'm sure they would have been receptive to our concerns given that they were very responsive during our stay. Regardless, we had an enjoyable visit and particularly enjoyed the pool, which can be heated for an additional daily charge.

Gorgeous Home with beautiful view

By: Trip Date: 2021-02-18
We had a wonderful time and enjoyed our stay. There was plenty of room for us and we loved the heated pool. Just a short walk to the beach, which was absolutely beautiful!

Very beautiful home!

By: Trip Date: 2021-01-30
Lots of room for our adult family of 8. Very clean and the views were breathtaking. The master bedroom upstairs was perfect, especially nice to wake up looking at the ocean. Property management was ver helpful with any questions or concerns we had. The French doors were hard to secure and the handles and locks should be replaced. But, property management had a maintenance man come out and check them for us, and showed us how to secure them

Beautiful sanctuary on the water

By: Trip Date: 2020-12-22
My family of 4 generations had a marvelous stay at this resort like property. I would highly recommend.

“Destination” CHECK✅

By: Trip Date: 2020-10-03
First of all, the accommodations were just what we were looking for. Plenty of room, close to the beach, and beautiful house. The beds were amazing, couldn’t hear noises from other rooms, plenty of storage, big closets, lots of outlets, all switches labeled, and great WiFi, cable. Would stay again. That being said, it did need minor maintenance. Outdoor furniture needs to be replaced, some door handles were loose or missing (nothing that couldn’t be worked with), kitchen faucet needs to be replaced (old and worn), garage door remote would only open 1 door, and pool created some water buildup by outside doors. They really need to use the outside patio space and balcony space better. Maybe put a table and chairs out there to allow for breakfast or lunch. Again, minor issues. All in all I would stay again because the good definitely outweighed the bad.

Great Vacation

By: Trip Date: 2020-09-04
Had a great vacation. Directly across from the beach.

Great house, great vacation

By: Trip Date: 2020-06-13
This house was great for our family, overall, with only a few concerns. The biggest issue, I would say, is just the doors to the pool area. All three sets were in pretty rough shape and were impossible to get to latch and/or lock. Being right off the main road with tons of people walking all day and night, it was worrisome to not know for sure that all the doors were actually secured. My only other complaint, I would say, is pretty minor, but is just something I believe should be corrected.... there was a tv in every bedroom, none of them were connected to cable services, or didn’t have any working remotes, which was just annoying when people wanted to unwind each night before bed. The only tv that worked completely and had cable services was the master bedroom. But, like I said, overall, our time at this house was great for the most part! Very close to the beach access, close to places to eat, and our family would definitely rent here again

Our week stay.

By: Trip Date: 2020-02-15
This house was absolutely breathtaking with beautiful beach views. Our family of 6 stayed in this rental for a week. Lots of room and everything you could possibly need inside of the home during our stay. The hot tub was a major addition to the home as well as we stayed during the winter months. Three major things I do need to mention - the kitchen faucet was broken as it only featured a spray option. The garbage disposal wasn’t clean and left a horrible smell while running. We had to make an extra trip for cleaning supplies because it was unbearable. The water heater couldn’t keep up with all bathrooms which was difficult but we made it work. Also one very important thing and should be fixed immediately, all bottom French doors do not lock which left us feeling very uneasy. Three times we came back from being out on excursions to the French doors blown open from the wind leaving our rental open and accessible to all people passing by. Upon booking we were told there would be a garage door on the counter for the doors and upon arrival there was not. Sent an email with no response but came home later that day and there was one on the counter, again, with our doors left wide open. Check out time was 10am. We were loading up our vehicle and closed the front door during this process, at 9:45am we were locked out of the house. Thank goodness the French doors on the backside of the house do not lock so we could get back in to finish gathering our belongings. We would definitely book again, as long as everything mentioned could be corrected.

Beautiful home with easy beach access!!

By: Trip Date: 2019-12-30
Our family of 10 spent the last week at this vacation home and not one of we’re ready to leave by Saturday. There are 3 sets of French doors that open up and face the ocean directly. It was so peaceful to hear the ocean 24 hours a day! I would highly recommend!!

Beautiful Property!!

It was just as described on the ad.

Great Location

Three families rented the house for a beach vacation. Location was very convenient to beach and also convenient to walk to multiple restaurants.

The house was lovely and fit our needs beautifully.

Wonderful place to vacation

By: Trip Date: 2019-06-08
We had a great time. The house was gorgeous and the location was great. There were 10 of us and we had plenty of room to do our own thing or a big enough living and dining area that we could all be together. We had concerns about the beach being across the street, but it was no problem at all. We still had a great view and the beach was great and uncrowded. We fixed several meals there and there was a good supply of cooking utensils, etc. The only negatives were the pool wasn’t as clean as it should have been and the carpet needed a good cleaning. However, I would highly recommend this property.

Keep up with the updating!!

By: Trip Date: 2019-05-03
We stayed in this property 2 years ago and knew it had new owners this year. While we enjoyed the new sectional sofa and dinning room table, I believe we would have more appreciated a new kitchen sink faucet and the shower head in the master bathroom being repaired or replaced. The storm doors on the second story balcony were also in such bad shape that we couldn't even get out the doors without spending 30 minutes messing with them. There were also dead bugs all over the floor in the master bath and the toilet constantly runs if you forget to wiggle the handle. We did have a problem with our AC and you were very prompt in getting it fixed. I am also confident that if we brought these issues up during our stay that you would have tried to resolve them but we didn't want to spend our vacation calling ppl to our house to clean and fix things. Hopefully now that I have, these things will be updated for our next stay as we do love this house and it's location!!

Nice and relaxing!

By: Trip Date: 2019-04-15
We had a great time and would come back if schedules align. We were 4 moms and 8 kids ages 11-14 from New England for April break. House was in a great location for kids to walk or bike to get ice cream. Room configuration was good. The front room was massive and taken over by 4 tween girls. Back room with king had a sofa bed but would have been a very tight squeeze for more than 2 people. House had bare necessities but needed beach chairs, towels and toys (as noted, but we were coming by plane so hard to bring all that). Kitchen and living area were great for a crowd. House was clean and maintained but fixtures were a bit dated. Pool was not much bigger than a large hot tub but was a nice addition to beach. No direct beach access though—have to go out the front to the street and our main neighborhood road. Community pool and tennis courts nice to have.

We were offered this property when our reserved property was no longer available. It was a huge upgrade from what we had rented so that was a big plus. The property was a nice home that needed some maintenance to make it spectacular. We stayed for 30 days and during our stay the property was sold. We were asked if we would mind giving access to the new owners and their agents and were rewarded with a $200 Visa card for our inconvenience. The new owners are doing a lot of updates and I anticipate that this property will be top notch soon.
