Fantastic home for mulitple families with kids!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed 3 nights over New Years Eve with 8 adults and 14 children (ages 2 to 15). We had more than enough space and beds for everyone to have their own private areas as well as plenty of room for community gathering space, both inside and outside.

The decor and furniture in many of the rooms has been updated since these photos were taken, so when we arrived we were pleasantly surprised at the upgrades--particularly the couches and chairs in the main living room which were undoubtedly more comfortable than the wicker chairs in the photo above looked.

The entire house was clean, inviting, comfortable, and well-stocked with all you could need, including hair dryers, shampoo & soap in the bathrooms, and tons of cooking appliances and dishes in the kitchen--though more storage containers with lids for leftovers would have been very helpful.

The only differences we saw from the description and the actual rooms were that the two bedrooms in the carriage house both have king beds, and the two bedrooms on the 3rd floor of the main house both have queen beds. Plan for that as you're dividing up rooms!

The bunk room has extra thick mattresses, and no barriers on the top bunks, so we ended up putting a mattress on the floor as a safety measure for the smaller kids that were staying in that room, rather than using the top bunks.

We had the pool heated for our stay (extra fee), and once we got it working it was wonderful. The water level wasn't high enough for it to kick on the first day, but we called and they had someone take care it it right away for us, so by day 2 and 3 we were all swimming. The "spa" tub is not quite a hot tub, but did get slightly warmer than the main pool. The alarm on the pool door (required by FL law) was a good security measure since we had several small children in our group.

Every bedroom had a flat-screen television and cable, which the children LOVED. We would have loved to also have a stereo system, or music stations on the cable channels as an option too (maybe next time!).

The beach is just across the street (a very short walk), and the house is super convenient to Publix for quick grocery runs.

I had a VERY good experience working with Royal Destinations and was impressed with their professionalism, helpfulness, and accommodating attitude. We asked for a late checkout on Sunday, since the house wasn't reserved for the following day, and were able to enjoy a few extra hours and not have to pack up the night bef

Owner's Response: Dear Andrea - Thank you for taking the time to post your kind review. We were so happy to read that your family had a great time at Aweigh from Home over New Years. You were so right to say that Aweigh is a fantastic home for shared vacations. Having two full kitchens really helps when feeding large groups of guest and all the bedrooms lend themselves to the privacy we need when traveling with extended family and friends. Thank you for noticing the upgrades that our owner has installed. Our owners take great pride in providing their guest with a comfortable and relaxed environment and items they need to enjoy their vacations. The location also makes it easy to enjoy your vacation. Being in the heart of Seagrove makes the great shops and restaurants of Seaside, Watercolor, and 30A just a short bike ride away. Again, we are so glad that you enjoyed your visit and we at Royal Destinations are looking forward to helping you have another memorable vacations.

Reviewer Comments:

This house was absolutely perfect for our group of 13. More than enough space to spread out and have privacy but also plenty of common areas to gather and entertain. The beds were the most comfortable that I have ever slept in on a vacation and the short distance to the beach and Seaside community was perfect. We will be back!!

Owner's Response: Dear J- Thank you for taking the time to post your "All 5's" review of Aweigh From Home. We are so glad that you enjoyed your stay! Aweigh is that wonderful classic Florida beach house that is made for an extended family or group of friends. With bedrooms on all four levels it is easy for everyone to find their space. Having two full kitchens also makes it a breeze to feed a crowd coming and going at the beach. So many of Aweigh's guests return year after year, that it has become the semi-official reunion spot for a number of families and friends. We hope that will be the case for you. We look forward to helping you make some more wonderful beach memories during your next visit!!!!!!

Loved the house. Best thing was # of parking spots. Had a few maint issues. Internet did not work. Man did come out at 9 pm and tried to get it working. Cleaning was good except almost every rug had some type of stain on it. Maybe time for new carpet if stains can't be removed. Already recommended house to others. See you again !!!!

Owner's Response: Dear G and J- Thank you for taking the time to post your review. Aweigh from Home is the classic Florida beach house that has been making great memories for years and will be for years to come. It is almost like you are getting two houses for the price of one. With its' two full kitchens and two living areas, we have large families return year after year because the layout of the house makes it easy to deal with a crowd. Having bedrooms on three floors gives parents and kids their own spaces to enjoy a wonderful beach vacation. We are sorry about the modem failing during your visit. It has been replaced and will be good for your next visit. We are looking forward to seeing you again real soon!!!! PS- Thanks for the referral!!!!

This was our 11th year to spend our family vacation in Aweigh From Home during the week of July 4th. The house and swimming pool are perfect for all my children and grandchildren. The property has always been clean and well maintained. The customer service was excellent and I highly recommend this property to anyone who wants a great vacation.

Owner's Response: Dear A- Thank you for your kind words and the all "5" review. We can understand why you called this your "favorite week of the year." To see all the smiles and hear such wonderful stories about your family's past trips made it hard to leave the property when we were done. It is why we work so hard at Royal. To help families make those wonderful memories. As you know, Absolute is the perfect house for the multi-generational beach trips. With two kitchens and living areas, plus all the bedrooms, each family can have their own part of the house to settle in. We look forward to helping your family make Number 12 the best trip ever!

Owner's Response: Dear D- Yes, Aweigh from Home is the perfect home for that family gathering or celebration. It is a great classic Florida beach house. Aweigh is like having two houses for the price of one with its' two kitchens and two living rooms. The house is large enough where each family can have their own separate living spaces, which is so valued during a shared vacation. The wonderful pool area is great place for everyone to get together. We have so many families, like yours, which come back year after year for that Gulf Coast getaway. We are so glad that you had a "5" star visit and are looking forward to seeing you again real soon!
