Our new favorite place!

  • 5 of 5
We recently rented this house. We were not disappointed. The house is beautiful! You have the best of both worlds here. The bay in the front and the ocean just short walk away. The home has a very nice lay out with bedrooms on the opposite ends for privacy. The kitchen has everything that you could possible need plus more. The appliances were up to date and clean. The bay in the front has just enough beach area during low tide to walk around, lay out, collect shells, fish etc. We caught our own blue crab with the two nets left at the house. The beach area is perfect, secluded, you almost feel like you are on a small island. We had two teenagers and two dogs with us. The dogs were very comfortable in the area and we felt safe letting them run out and about. We took them to the beach and let them roam on the bay side. I sat on the deck and watched dolphins every single morning that we stayed. We also watched dolphins from the gulf side. You can see the gulf from the kitchen window. The views from this house are spectacular. We collected beautiful shells in the marsh several times right next to the neighbors dock. Water shoes are a must have in this area. The grass, concrete and marsh areas can be hard on your feet. We also used the outdoor shower a few times. We really didn't use the downstairs patio area much due to the humidity but my hubs and I did nap briefly in the hammock. The screened in porch upstairs is very nice. Florida has Texas size bugs at night. We tried to keep most of the lights out if we wanted to be on the porch. We felt safe and there are plenty of lights all around if you choose to use them. The Tiki Hut is just a few blocks down the road at the marina. We bought fresh seafood to cook ourselves in town and found a couple of restaurants that we enjoyed as well. We had planned on doing some sightseeing in the area but we were so content, we never left longer than to get supplies from Crum's and the Dollar General. We have every intention in returning next year. Linda was very easy to work with. What are you waiting for...............book it!

Owner's Response: So glad to hear from yet another happy guest. The notes left at the house always make me smile. We do everything we can to make folks feel at home and work hard to keep it up to date with upscale furnishings and appliances. The highest compliments are when our guests return and send their friends.

This place is great - like Florida beach houses used to be many years ago. It's located toward the end of Alligator Point near the bird sanctuary. Lots of squirrels and birds on the bird feeder to watch. We saw eagles, ospreys flying over and a great blue heron hung out in front of the house every day. The kids delighted in the all the crabs and set the crab trap the owners let us use. Not only did we catch fish, but crabs, too.

The kids played in the shallow water right in front of the house while my wife laid on the beach. We explored and collected tons of shells walking down the beach of the gated bird sanctuary. It was deserted except for us. when we anted to walk the Gulf side, we just walked across the road and walked that beach, too. Bay and gulf - the best of both worlds.

We love this house. Everything was comfortable and clean including the great kitchen. Granite countertops and lots of extras made our stay really nice. It's open to the great room and overlooks the water, too. It has absolutely everything you could possibly need or want. Our kids were hooked on using the panini press making their own sandwiches. One of the few rentals we have used with more bath towels than we could use and a full sized washer & dryer.

It was nice of them not to charge a cleanup fee. Money we spent buying fresh seafood at a nearby seafood house.

The quiet & private location was so relaxing & great for our family and the many amenities and upgrades were a bonus. We're definitely coming back next summer for another 2 weeks.
