"Great location - This is a great place to stay with kids and a dog. The complex has many places to walk your dog, the storage room was packed with beach items, and it takes seconds to be on the beach. We played tennis, swam in the pools, and cooked out! The kitchen is well stocked with sharp knives and a good egg pan! Musts for us."

"Amazing vacation - I cannot say enough about how wonderful our trip was! My husband and I spent Labor Day week with my mother, brother, and nephew for our annual beach getaway. The beautiful beach house is perfectly sized with plenty of space to relax and spread out. The patio area provides a beautiful view of the Gulf, and the stroll down the very short path to the beach makes it perfectly located for ease. While we opted to rent chairs and umbrellas on the beach (which is private and extremely comfortable - no space intrusion!) - there are chairs, umbrellas, and beach toys ready for your enjoyment in the shed. There are outdoor showers at the top of the beach path, making it easy to wash off the sand before trekking it in with you, and a foot rinse off the patio by the shed to help rinse your feet and each items. The complex is also located across the street from the grocery store and shopping center, which was super convenient. The owner and rental property were extremely helpful and friendly as well, making it a pleasurable and stress free experience. All in all, it's an amazing vacation getaway and would highly recommend staying here."

"Great deal - Everything was wonderful! Would like to let the property manager know that the remotes for the t.v.s don't work because the cable box is taped up behind the t.v.s, blocking the remote from communicating with the cable box."
