Turtle Watch: Gulf Front

Overview

Property Details

Updated: Sep 27, 2016
3 Bedrooms, 2.5 Baths, Sleeps 8

GULF FRONT HOME ON C-30

Turtle Watch is just steps from the gorgeous and secluded beaches. Enjoy the private boardwalk leading down to your own piece of paradise as this part of the beach is never crowded!

This is a 3 bedroom, 2.5 bath home with 2 very large decks overlooking the ocean. On the first floor of the home you will find all 3 bedrooms. Bedroom #1 has a queen size bed and it's own doors leading to the deck. Bedroom #2 has a queen size bed and a full bathroom which also looks out towards the ocean. Bedroom #3 has 2 twin beds. There is also another full bath on this floor.

On the second level of the home you will find a large, open and very comfy living area. The best part are all of the doors leading out to the second deck and providing gorgeous views from anywhere in the room. There is a living area with plenty of books to read, a sleeper sofa, a dining area that sits 8 and a bar in the kitchen that will sit an additional 4 people. The kitchen is equipped with all essential cooking supplies and appliances.

This home is on the stretch of beach off of C-30. It is in a very nice and family friendly neighborhood and is less than a mile from the turn off to Indian Pass Road. Very close to the Famous Restaurant, The Raw Bar!

Please come and stay at our lovely gulf front home. The dolphins are awaiting, the birds calling and who knows maybe you will get to TURTLE WATCH!

Reviewer Comments:

We loved the location and the proximity to the beach. We did not love the fact that the house was very dirty. Several large stains on the carpet, stains on the arms of the couch, dust in some areas that you could write your name on and a large hole in the down comforter on the bed. Also, the filters in the house looked like they had not been changed in months. The other issue was that there were plenty of dishes in the kitchen but many of the pots and pans were rusted, there were not many large kitchen utensils, many of the dishes in the cabinets had been put away dirty and we got 1 dishcloth and 1 dish towel supplied to use all week. Also the kitchen sink faucet leaked around the bottom so we had to keep a towel wrapped around it to prevent flooding the counter. We rented the house to sleep 8 and we did not have any sheets available for the sofa sleeper. The wooden furniture on the deck was not in good shape at all. We did make the best of our vacation though as we had driven 12 hours. We went too town and bought Lysol wipes and other cleaner and cleaned the house ourselves. We completely enjoyed the beach and the location of the house. We have rented from Coastal Joes before and the houses have always been in pristine condition with everything in it we needed. Even the older homes were clean and well stocked. We will probably rethink who we want to rent from the next time. Based on our past experience I did not even check into other companies but I am sure I will next time. I was very disappointed in their customer service and their product this time. The other issue I had was that I travel with my service dog with me at all times. I sent my service dog credentials and a copy of my doctors order for the service dog when we registered and was still charged the $100. pet fee. She is not a pet, she is a service animal.

Reviewer Comments:

The home is nice. Decks are great. Location is very convenient and off of the busy highway. The beach is not crowded. The waters are not crystal clear like Destin, but I will forego the crowds for the experience we had any day. Upon arrival, the sheets needed to be washed and some tables were extremely dusty. Cleaning crew gets a failing grade. We would stay again.

Great pet friendly vacation spot!

  • 4 of 5

An earlier review (from 2012) derided the beach as "dirty with seaweed" problem. Not at all a thing anymore.

Sand is white powder style, no seaweed was to be found. Now, she was right that you would not do any snorkeling, as the ocean there has large sandbars, so the water has silt in it from the waves crashing. The whole area, and most of the rentals, is/are dog friendly, I don't think I saw any non-dog owners at the beach. We were there during the week, and it was quite nearly a private beach. I think we ran into maybe 3 people each time we hit the beach. House is legitimately on the beach, with no houses in front or any such shenanigans. House is not luxurious, but the photos in the listing ring true. Grilling on the porch was made difficult by the constant ocean breezes, trying to blow the flames out. May have been the time of year. Anyhow, a great time for those who like pets and value privacy, vs. crowded beaches.

Reviewer Comments:

When we arrived, the house was dirty. Specifically, the floors. Visually, there was hair covering the floors (on all levels of the house) and chips in the living area. It was disgusting. The pots and pans were very limited in usability because they were old and very scratched up and the range had not been properly cleaned with food in the cook top. Also, the walls and door knobs were very sticky and dirty. There are no staircase handrails. When I mentioned the problems to Coastal Joe, they knew of a power outage that had happened in the area that prevented the cleaning, but had not offered to correct the problem even with this knowledge. I was very disappointed in paying a large amount of $ for such an unclean, out of date place. I will look for other rental agencies in the future.
