“Travelled 4000 miles for this and not dissapointed”
Reviewed 27 August 2013 for a stay in August 2013

If you look at my profile on here, you,ll see Ive travelled a reasonable amount (and did 20 years of travelling before tripadvisor existed), but its my first rental home rather than hotels.
So that said here goes:
Start with would we come again (always the first question to ask) and YES, we all would.
First impression was WOW... and that lasted all the 2 weeks.
Its position is truly spectacular, and would only be bettered if its view was the ocean itself (for which you would pay more, for a similar house, or same money for much, much smaller - beware that some rentals around here, dont make it clear that they are NOT on the beach, some think that as long as its within 100yds, then its on the beach -- it isnt) so its all about what do you want). also its only a 4 minute walk to the bayside of the ocean (pretty tiny beach) and around 7-8 mins to the gulfside and a truly amazing beach) We rented a boat and the house's dock was perfect. Sunrise is amazing (you cant see the sunset from this home, but there again the beach is always much better for that).
For people from the UK like me) or Europe, the house is large, there are 4 large bedrooms and although it says its a 3bath, its actually has 3 bedrooms en-suite with showers and the 4th room has one directly opposite (which oddly does have a bath!, so thats more like 4 in my book). 1 bedroom is obviously the master, with a large ensuite and a massive shower, plus that same amazing view of the bay. The other bedrooms dont have much of a view at all, but one of them has a door leading directly to the rear garden and swimming pool. If there is more than 1 family you will fight over who gets what room!!
Kitchen is large and well fitted, Ive seen reviews here saying some of the kit is a bit old, but it all looked fine to us. there was only 3 in our party, so we had much moe than we ever needed, but if you went to the limit of the occupancy then thats when maybe some people thought there wasnt enough stuff?
A huge fridge freezer, seperate wine cooler was great. So too the gas BBQ outside on the deck.
The pool was great, the large deck and dock fantastic. Plently of chairs outside, lots of towels and linen and we also gound a shed by the pool full of previous renters left behind beach chairs and stuff (bonus)
The house furnishings were lovely, expect a rental that looks maybe 2 or 3 years old in terms of most of the wear. Ive been to 4 and 5 star hotels that dont look this good.
The lounge area is large, with a dining table to say 8 and really comfy chairs and sofa for say 6 adults. I dont know how you would fit more and everyone have the same comfort for a few hours of downtime, but for us its was excellent.
There's a large (ish) great TV with hundreds of channels and also free WiFi.
Plenty of small shops and places to grab a beer or snacks as well as 4 good restaurants.all within 20 min walk
Major supermarkets are within a 4 min drive

So in summary, excellent, a great place..If they let me, Ill post some pics, so you can see for yourself.

Being critical, there was a few things I would change:
The rear door locks were not secure indeed the lock from the bedroom with the poolside door actually fell off when we tried to open that door (I have told the agent, so those niggles should be fixed)
There are loads of light switches and few are marked up, took us a week to figure that we had a pool light-
The outside dining table and furniture, is well worn and needs replacing (we didnt use it though) the pool and deck furniture all look new though
There is a 3 storey house just been built right nextdoor, looks very out of place and spoils any view there may have been from the front of the house, thats progress I guess. As the amazing view was out back its not so important, more mildly annoying
