    What a great location right on the Gulf of Mexico in the back, and with a refreshing pool in the front. When we weren’t enjoying the beach, we enjoyed the large screened porch. The kitchen was well equipped also.

    Kasey L from Centerville, GA recommends this vacation rental

    If a secluded ocean view is what you want this is it! Many listing fool you with "ocean view" but this house couldn't get any closer to the sand white beach with full ocean view. Located about a mile from the raw bar is an added bonus. The house was spacious and adequately maintained. I read other reviews b4 our trip and was concerned about some of the negative feed back, but clearly there have been up dates recently as I found no maintenance or furnishing needs at all. My husband and I have stayed at multiple locations from all inclusive resorts to 4 star hotels and this home is at the top of our list of all around perfect vacation spots. The staff were very kind and accommodating as well. We look forward to visiting again!

    Everything went smoothly. No problems with checkin or checkout. House was lovely and what a great location! Having our own pool was a plus.
    Four of our family members went out on an all day fishing trip with Fish n Express and had a great experience. We also did a sunset cruise with Water Safari. We ate most of our meals in but we did go to Krazy Fish Grill one night and Indian Pass Raw Bar another night. Both restaurants were very good. We rented a cabana and two chairs for the week from Happy Cabana Rentals. They were great. Every morning they had the cabana set up by 8am and didn’t take it down until after 7 at night. We also rented bikes from Happy Ours Rentals which was only about 2 miles from the house. This was the first time we stayed in Cape San Blas and we loved that it wasn’t at all crowded the way the Destin area has become. We definitely would consider coming back to this area.

    We had a wonderful time at Paradise Palms. The weather was great, the location is great, not too busy, and close to Port St. Joe and Apalachicola. The house was clean, a little bit dated, but clean, bed linens were fresh, clean and soft, bed was also very comfortable. We love that there is a place that will allow us to vacation with our pets. We would definitely stay at Paradise Palms again

    Mariyn C from Ringgold, GA recommends this vacation rental

    This is the 5th time we have rented this same property in 7 years. The location is perfect and the house has everything we could want; beach front, screened in pool & decks, hot tub, dog friendly. We stayed 2 full weeks this time. The decks are needing some maintenance as the railings are starting to rot and lose pickets (dog fell off deck into sand burrs and had to go to vet) and the screened in deck facing the ocean needs new cushions for the chairs (awful-didn't want to sit on them) and to be thoroughly cleaned. Pool needs resurfacing. House interior was clean, just needs maintenance. Did have new mattress in master and new stove in kitchen since last stay. Refrigerator is starting to fall apart. I have recommended this property to multiple people over the years and will continue to do so but with the caveat that it is not as well maintained as some other properties.

    • Manager Responded on 10/11/2017

      Oh no! We really wish we would have received a call so we could have made it better! This owner has agreed to allow us to do some upgrades, and it's our goal to get Paradise Palms up to the standards that we know it's capable of. Please remember that we are not only here to assist with making your reservation, we are here to assist during your stay as well.

    a guest from Hoschton, GA recommends this vacation rental

    Here are the likes about this property:
    Great location on the beach
    Nice to have a private pool on the property
    Layout of the house was great for 8 people
    Porches looking out to the beach were great

    Here are the dislikes about the property:
    Interior needs some updating and some fresh paint (for the money we paid to stay, I expected it to be a little nice than it was)
    Minor maintenance projects around the property such as broken screens, broken tiles in the pool

    Overall it was fine and we really enjoyed the location on the beach and the pool. I just think for the amount of money we paid for the week, it should have been a little bit nicer.

    • Manager Responded on 7/11/2017

      Thank you for your feedback. The minor issues have been reported to maintenance and they will get those issues corrected. We have also contacted the owner to suggest some fresher interior paint.

    Annual family vacation !! We enjoyed the house it is nice but needs some updates. The pool is awesome as well as the area around it. The beach was very nice . The inlet from the bay was right next door and we had crabs to see which we all enjoyed and several cranes . We would stay here again but needs new deck furniture asap. Also needs more cooking pans and bowls .

    This was our second stay at Paradise Palms. This is such a great house. The main level screened in porch is a great place to eat, relax, and take in the phenomenal view. The living room has sliders all the way across the front that really bring the outside in. The beach is just steps away, and beautiful. The pool and hot tub are very emjoyable, as well. This house is very, for lack of a better word, comfortable.

    Coastal Joe's Vacation Rentals is a top-notch company. Their agents are professional, knowledgeable, helpful and friendly. Will definitely stay with them again.

    We had a GREAT stay in this fantastic house. The house was as described, but even better. This is a beautiful house and it's in a great location. The house was VERY clean upon our arrival, and in good overall shape. We loved everything about it. The beach was outstanding and uncrowded. We loved the screened in porch off the living room. We had breakfast out there most mornings. The outdoor furniture was comfortable. The pool and hot tub were a lot of fun, although we never could figure out how to turn on the pool lights at night. The front yard is nice. This is just a great property and hopefully we will visit again. Coastal Joe's was very efficient and great to deal with. We would highly recommend this property.

    Our 4th year at this house. Still love the place, but porches need work and the patio furniture could use an update. Beds are very comfortable and the house is very clean. Would really enjoy the spa at the pool if it was warm. Beach is not as nice anymore since the bayou came through. But we still found a place not far from the house, to pitch our tent for the week. I think the carpet is new in the bedrooms? It's hard to find houses with a pool in that area, so that is a plus for us!!!

    • Manager Responded on 10/11/2016

      We truly appreciate your return visits every year! The owner has done many things to Paradise Palms to try and keep up with the suggestions from guests. There is a new sink and tile around the sink. There is a new stove and YES, the home had new carpet put in. I'm so glad that you noticed. We will work on getting the oustide furniture updated for your next visit. We did have an upholstery company come out and clean all of the outside cushions and inside sofas just recently.

    The house was good. What you would expect in a beach house. Rooms were spacious. The pool area was very nice. We really enjoyed Indian Pass Raw Bar a mile down the road and St Joe's Shrimp Co to get fresh fish and shrimp. Only concern is the pass that used to be a few hundred yards further down the beach was diverted and ended up about 10 steps of beach in front of the house's beach access.

    I'd definitely stay at the house again but would check to make sure the pass hasn't moved again and cut off beach access.

Overall, Paradise Palms is a lovely home and also a good value. We plan to come back in 2017.

    The vacation was very relaxing ~ went by too quickly, but don't they all. This is the 2nd time we have rented this place. The house is great except they really do need to replace the mattress', after a week on them the back begins to hurt quite a bit. We replaced the coffee pot because the one that was there took over 20 minutes to brew a pot !! :) We also had to clean the vacuum cleaner because in trying to vacuum realized it wasn't picking up, and turned it over, and the beater bar wasn't even turning, the belt was not attached, it was gross. Also it might be nice to make the quests aware that to operate the hot tub you need to use the panel on the side of the house not the one by the hot tub. We missed a day of using the hot tub due to this issue. All in all if you are looking for a place to kick back and relax, this is it. Thanks and see you next year !!

    Yes, the house is a bit worn, but no more than I would expect from a Gulf Front rental. The wallpaper in the photos looks like a rather garish orange stripe, but it is actually mauve and quite pleasant. The floor plan is awesome with two bedrooms facing the gulf and a marvelous jacuzzi in the large bathroom. The small deck off the boardwalk to the beach is lovely. The television continued to freeze. Coastal Joe responded promptly and sent a technician who told us the band with was just too small. We shut down all our electronics and the situation improved but was never eradicated. This house is great if you don't want to watch television. If the problem were corrected, we would probably stay again as we found the house comfortable and reasonably priced. We have been visiting the Cape for 20 years and stayed in a lot of houses. With the exception of the television, Paradise Palms is more than adequate.

    This really was Paradise if you don't have children. There is nothing to do there. No para-sailing, no amusement parks, no arcades, etc. There wasn't even a souvenir shop. Overall, our stay was very good. We laid on the beach, by the pool, and in the evening, attempted to watch some TV what little time the cable wasn't froze. (Not Coastal Joes fault). If you are looking for clear water like Panama City, you will be disappointed. However, I will stay there again and would purchase this property to live there. I advise you to give it a try if you don't mind driving to Panama City for entertainment.

    Bobbie B from Alabaster, AL recommends this vacation rental

    My family usually vacations along the Alabama Gulf Coast. This year, we decided to explore new options. When I found Paradise Palms on the website, it looked like the perfect fit for us. The private pool is covered wit a lanai, keeping out the pesky yellow flies that were ever present during our stay. My 2 grandsons loved playing in the pool. They also loved watching the surf from the screened front porch. Each day, they spent time playing in the sand and the gentle surf. The 3 bedrooms were perfect for us. The boys stayed in one of the kings that connected to their parents' room via a HUGE bath. Since the 3 year old tends to wander around, it was a perfect set up to keep tabs on him. I stayed in the queen bedroom and loved having a balcony that overlooked the gulf. Was the house PERFECT? No. But it was better than good enough. It was clean, comfortable and spacious. The pictures don't do it justice. The only recommendation I would have is to add a large stock pot to the kitchen supplies. Luckily, we brought one from home to have our mandatory FRESH SHRIMP boil. Nice, clean home with everything you need for a relaxing vacation.

    Great location on a beach that you could walk for miles, fish, and enjoy the water. The house has a nice pool/spa with lanai on the street side, with just the right amount of sun/shade to relax by, and not forgetting the four huge porches to relax on. The house is located 10 miles from town center, but there are 2 convenient stores closer and a great raw bar about 5 miles away. The house has three good size bedrooms and nicely appointed bathrooms. The kitchen is a great working area but sparsely furnished and in need of a new toaster. My one big complaint was the the poor condition of the outdoor furniture. There were no beach chairs or umbrella, and the chaises around the house were either broken and only one dirty ripped pillow to share. Its a great beach site for children to explore and spend many hours playing the sand and water.

    We've been renting homes in the Indian Pass/Cape San Blas area for about 15 years, and Paradise Palms might be the best one ever. A beautiful place with a gorgeous view. And it was perfect for our dogs Bianca and Caruso, who might have had an even better time than we did.

    Shower between master suites needed recalking and was invested with drain moth larvae.

    Overall the place will need new carpet and some TLC in the next few years.

    We will stay on the Cape from now on. The water was brown like cream coffee the whole time we were there. We drove out on the cape and the water looked more inviting.

    We were happy with our stay though. Thanks.

    We had a wonderful stay at Paradise Palms. After reading some critical reviews, we hesitated to stay at this property but we really liked the location and wanted the option of the enclosed pool in case of bad weather. I can honestly say that Paradise Palms met or exceeded our every expectation. First of all, it was VERY clean from top to bottom. There were plenty of linens, dishes, glasses and such but if you have a favorite skillet or omelette pan, you may want to bring it. The carpet was clean and seemed new. The furniture was comfortable and clean. I have a bad back, and was really worried about the beds that others had commented on, but the mattress was as good as my $2,000.00+ one back home. We actually slept in the smaller beach front king bedroom so we could wake to the ocean views but the master had the same mattresses. Yes, the kitchen could use an update and there was some wear and tear on the stair rails and such, but as others have said, we weren't buying it, just there to enjoy the most relaxing vacation I can remember. The ocean views from Paradise Palms were magnificent and we ate most of our meals on the main level screened in porch. Most mornings, we had coffee on the upper porch with even better views. We enjoyed our almost private beach every day, and in the afternoons when it got too hot, we retreated to the wonderful enclosed pool, which was my husbands favorite part. No bugs and no debris in the pool! We got in the hot tub every night and enjoyed sitting around the pool watching the reflections of the pool lights dance off the foliage. Again, no bugs to worry about. The outdoor shower, complete with hot water was also great for rinsing the salt and sand off. Washer, dryer, grill etc. all in good working order. I think that about covers everything. Thanks, Coastal Joe's staff, for a wonderful rental experience. We WILL be back!

    Stephen P from Winnsboro, TX recommends this vacation rental

    We have stayed in the Paradise Palm home the last 3 years. Location and the private pool with the lanai are the features that drew us back. However, don't plan on returning next year because owner/rental company are negligent in keeping up this property. We have to clean the kitchen and utensils before we are comfortable using them including wiping off cabinet doors and knobs. We use the extra sheets as slip covers for the living room furniture which do not seem clean. We also launder the very used and dated bedspreads so they are clean enough to use as blankets for sleeping. The screened porch has an entire section of screen missing making it useless for keeping bugs out. The lanai door will not latch which also allows insects in the pool area. The beds were terrible the first two years. This year they were better; however, they were either used when purchased or terribly low quality. Carpet is so bad, will not let my 8 year old sit or play on the floor. After complaining about beds, a rodent problem a cleanliness problem the first year, we returned the next year after being assured updates had been made. Was somewhat cleaner-mice were gone but now had bats in attic. Bats were gone this year and so were the mice. Cannot tell any updates on interior have been made in the past 3 years. Will sacrifice not having the pool next year to rent a much nicer and larger home just down the beach for the same money!

      Thank you for your feedback. Paradise Palms is a very popular home that stays rented for most of the year. We take our guest feedback very seriously and as a result there are no longer any issues with rodents or bats and have not been for sometime. The mattresses have all been changed out since last fall so those are all brand new. Some people like hard mattresses and some softer so unfortunately we will never be able to satisfy everyone. The screened in porch has been completely rescreened as of this week. The living room furniture is scheduled to be changed out in September when we have a few days that we can get in to take care of this. The carpets were cleaned about a month ago so they are not in bad shape at all. Perhaps you didn't like the quality of the carpets?? We also had the furniture cleaned at the same time as the carpets so it is clean, but just worn. This is why we will be changing out the furniture in September. Did you call our office to let us know that you needed our assistance? I checked all of our logs and we did not hear from you during your stay! We would have been happy to come back and clean anything that we could have missed. After all, we are here to assist you during your stay in any way that we can. Thank you for your valuable feedback and hopefully you will consider coming back to see the scheduled upgrades that will be made to Paradise Palms and if not, then I wish you all the best with the other home down the street! Update: The living room furniture has been replaced with a brand new set. New pictures to be posted very soon!

    We are so excited when it's time to go on vacation. We call Paradise Palms our Beach House! We love the layout of this house because it's perfect for having our grandson there. The house sits on an excellent spot where we have a part of the beach to ourselves. It's an excellent place to spend a relaxing week. The house and grounds were clean. The pool is a big addition as well. The wind was quite high when we were there this summer but that was ok because we used the pool to swim. We enjoy seeing and hearing the ocean of course but the beautiful pool is a wonderful plus as well. We had more fun than ever this year because we "used" every part of the house. We ate dinner out on the beach side in the screened in porch. We ate lunch down by the pool. We started another tradition while enjoying our food by the water. Our little grandson had a blast in the pool. He is almost 3 and the ocean was not his 'top' swimming place so the pool is especially handy for our family. We enjoy living a week in Paradise Palm so much and hope we can continue doing this for years to come. It's a fabulous Beach House! We highly, highly recommend it!

    Our stay at Paradise Palms was wonderful. The management company was very pleasant, everyone was so kind. The house was absolutely gorgeous along with the view. The kitchen was not all that well stocked if you plan on cooking but you can get by. The house was clean and very homey. The beds were comfortable. The tv in one of the upstairs rooms would not change channels and the tv downstairs would often have interference. But we weren't there to watch tv so that really didn't bother us too much. We took our dogs and this home is great for dogs. It would be great for kids too. The dogs were able to go to the pool area with us, as it was screened in. They were also able to hang out on the back deck and bark at all the other dogs on the beach. The pool area is very nice. We were unable to get the jacuzzi to work but that wasn't very important to us. The master bathroom had a jacuzzi tub in it anyway. We absolutely loved this house and will definitely be back!

    We loved the house and the beach back yard. The parking area is small but easy with one vehicle. We loved having a pool, hot tub, and jacuzzi. The outdoor shower was a nice bonus too. We had a great time. You will need all amenities. Some condos have sugar, salt, pepper, etc. This did not but we just bought some and it was no big deal. There were some chairs and a crab trap. We did leave a big net since our car did not have room and we bought it down there. Beds were comfortable, plenty of room for everyone and very relaxing!!

    We enjoyed our vacation at Paradise Palms. We were hesitant based off previous reviews about the property, and while we could see the validity of those reviews, it did meet our needs. The mattresses themselves were comfortable. There were enough pots and pans to meet the needs of our family of six. The pool was well maintained and clear. The beach was beautiful and wonderfully quiet. I loved the porch swing on the upper porch. It was a perfect reading spot. There were some minor appliance issues during our stay, but Coastal Joe's took care of them immediately. Their maintenance staff could not be any better.
    That said, the property is showing the wear and tear of a beach rental. The furniture was heavily worn and torn in places and the carpet stained. Nothing that made it a hazard, just well worn. The repairs to stop the bats from nesting did not work.

    Peter L from Elmhurst, IL recommends this vacation rental

    My girlfriend and I did a four day getaway to Paradise Palms in February. We were looking for an out-of-the-way, quiet beachfront vacation and we got exactly that.

    The property came exactly as advertised in the VRBO listing. It was clean and everything was in working order. If I could change one thing, I would have liked the mattresses on the king beds to be more firm - it sunk in quite a bit when you layed down. The wicker headboard was starting to come apart a bit too.

    Additionally, the hot tub instructions were not as "idiot proof" as they could have been for a rental property - there were instructions for turning it on, but adjusting the temp was a bit trickier (it was set very low originally). Maintenance came out and showed us how, though.

    The area is terrific if you are looking to stay away from the crowds - especially in the winter months. I would describe the winter weather as beautiful fall weather in the upper midwest. We didn't swim, but the water was warm enough for us to wade.

    The beach goes on for miles in either direction from the property. We went for several long walks where we didn't see another human being for miles, it was like our own private beach!

    We were overall satisfied with Coastal Joe's customer service. They were prompt in responding, and I especially liked that someone always answered the phone whenever we called (no voicemail purgatory!). The staff followed through on what they said they were going to do, and even followed up afterwards to make sure the issues were resolved.

    Overall we were very satisfied with the house, the Cape San Blas area in general, and Coastal Joe. I hope to go back some day.

    This was a great property accept for the kitchen! I’d recommend this to a friend however they should plan on eating out every meal or bring the kitchen from home. I was extremely disappointed in the kitchen ware. I understand the rentals, I have a rental on Lake Burton. I’d be better off making tinfoil pots and pans and crafting utensils from the palm trees. My recommendation, replace the stove, pots, pans, and utensils. You don’t have to get the best but the Dollar General would be an improvement.

    Dear Mary!

    We wanted to write you and tell you how wonderful, terrific, superb, stunning, excellent and all the other words which describe just how much we enjoyed our stay August 2012 at Paradise Palms once again.

    We find after a year of work both at home and the work place we need a break. It was the summer of 2011 when we found the Paradise Palms. We had no idea we had found a place which was like home without all the stress. We simply enjoy being there.

    We spend a lot of time at the beach. (Morning, noon and night!) We like a place without tons of people at the beach and the house is placed perfectly from the gulf so we can sit on the porches to see and hear the waves. The pool is awesome as well. Having a grandson who is 2 years old makes having a pool all the better. Swimming in the pool is great at anytime day or night.

    We like how the house is built and all the doors and gates which can lock. This is great for both the grandson and the pup. They are safe if locked out on one of the porches while playing. The pool is the same. We are able to lock the doors to make it a safe atmosphere no matter which part of the house we are in. We do like the "bell" which rings when the door from the pool into the house is opened.

    Once we get settled at the house we do not leave except to purchase food or other things we might need. We have breakfast, lunch, snacks and dinner at the house. We are able to relax and enjoy ourselves beyond belief. I guess we can say we have found a place where we can "forget the world" and relax.

    It is not as easy to find a place which fills all such things which I've described above. Therefore, we wanted to write a "thank you" worthy of the great times we have had at Paradise Palms. We hope to spend our vacation once again at Paradise Palms -Summer 2013.

    So, thank you, thank you and thank you!

    Thank you also Coastal Joe Vacation Rentals!

    The house was in great shape when we arrived. The location (directly on the beach) was wonderful. We weren't too far from Port St. Joe, so that wasn't much of a hassel. We did choose to eat in most nights and the kitchen could have used a few more cooking items (i.e. pots, pans), but we managed. The grill igniter did not work and had to light with a match. The cable kept skipping/freezing...normally wouldn't be watching TV at the beach, but we were there during the Olympics, so we wanted to watch in the evenings. One suggestion would be to have a hand held shower faucet on the outside shower. It would make it easier to rinse off sandy paws. Being able to bring my dog was an added bonus. Having the pool and hot tub was a huge bonus.

    All in all, very nice house and staff. A maintenance person did show up while we were there to do minor routine maintenance. He called before arriving, came when he said he would and addressed all the questions we had.

    As advertised. Great place to get away and relax. Only two issues... Not big, but should be addressed by Coastal Joe. The bats are back and lots of bat dropping on the stairs and windows... not sanitary at all. The beds really need to be replaced... important part of recharging is a good nights sleep, the beds are the worst on since college dorms! I would still give the place an overall 4.5 out of 5. Considering everything else, the pool, hot tub, beach, location... the place is fantastic and would recommend it to anyone with kids. We hope to make it a regular vacation spot. The locals are friendly and everything is slow paced and relaxing. Thanks to Coastal Joe!

    Fantastic location and the house lived up to our expectations clean tidy and welcoming ...stepping out of our door straight on to the beach was wonderful.....the hot tub was great would have been perfect if the pool had been heated at this time of year. Will definitely return to this area and property.

    This is a very nice place and a great location. We were there in the winter so we could not use the pool, but it was still a nice spot. We had fires on the beach at night and it was nice to have the ocean view (dolphins swimming down the beach two mornings). There were some plumbing issues that were annoying, but I did not report it until check out so it was not horrible. It would be REALLY awesome if the owner would heat the pool and whirlpool, but we knew that it wasn't heated going in. It is right down the road from the Raw Bar which is great fun with good food. Thanks for a great Christmas vacation!!! We had not been to the beach in the winter, and it was well worth the drive from Missouri.
    ps you need a casserole bowl or two in there and maybe a few serving bowls :)

    10 years now. Best place to really relax. My only suggestion would be for the owners to invest in better mattresses for their beds. Over all it was a great vacation, and I would consider renting this house again in the future.

    Patricia D from PIQUA, OH recommends this vacation rental

    We stayed at Paradise Palms with 5 adults and 2 children. Top things we love -beach access and quietness, lovely pool, screened in porch. Things to know before you go - 1 bath towel per person provided, kitchen items are more limited than in other beach houses, bring toilet paper and paper towels and soap. Knowing that ahead would be nice, but we are anxious to stay in the house again and for 2 weeks instead of 1! The misleading element is that the two master suites share a common bathroom with a hall bath for the third bedroom. If you know that you can figure out if this works for your group.

      Coastal Joe does e-mail out a list of things we provide upon your arrival and what you might want to bring along. Please make sure to read the Pre-Arrival packet that we e-mail out once the balance has been paid. It contains all of the information that this renter mentioned in the review.

    a guest from Camden, Ar recommends this vacation rental

    The carpet was VERY stained. There was bat FECES all on the back porches, this is a health hazard and very unsightly. Loved the master bath, but the hot water heater would not heat enough water for the tub. Overall I would stay there again and we did have a good stay, I would fix those items mentioned. The rental place was very willing to help whenever I called.

    • Manager Responded on 6/23/2011

      CJVR is aware of the poor condition of the carpets. We do have them steam cleaned on a very regular basis and will continue doing this until the busy summer season is over. This home is rented out through the entire summer but once there is an opening brand new carpet will be installed. Brand new carpets have been installed throughout the house. 08/31/11 There was an issue with Bats in the roof and unfortunately we could not have had it sealed until now because they are a protected species and there were babies in the attic that we unable to fly until just recently. The roof has been sealed and there are no longer any issues with bats or droppings. SK 10/07/11

    Nancy P from West Islip, New York recommends this vacation rental

    This was our first visit to Cape San Blas, FL and we fell in love with the place. I traveled 1300 miles from LI, NY to relax in Florida sun & on a quiet beach, our vacation was wonderful & worth every hour spent behind the wheel! I'm glad that it's been such a well kept secret, the area is beautiful & I hope it never changes. Paradise Palms was a lovely beach home, the pool was awesome after a long day on the beach. My son and my dog had a fantastic time playing on the beach every day. We enjoyed great dinners at Port St. Joe, beautiful sunset horsebackriding on the Cape and 2 amazing fishing excursions, it was awesome. We will definitely return to Cape San Blas, we loved it & it was a perfect place to escape the NYC hustle & bustle. The hardest part was leaving. Thanks to everyone at Coastal Joe Vacation Rentals - what a great team, you were all so welcoming & kind.

    Janet Y from Antioch, TN recommends this vacation rental

    Property had misleading reviews. We expected a heated pool including a hot tub at no extra cost. What we got was a COLD POOL and COLD TUB. There was no heat it was not even connected! The pool was also undergoing a roofing project that was being done all day on Saturday and Sunday til dark. The workers left metal shavings and screws behind that did not get cleaned out of the pool until Thursday, and we had to walk with the debris all week around the pool and the driveway. The TV in the front bedroom was physically there, but there was no connection to watch it. This was disappointing! If there is not a connection, why have the TV in the room? The microwave in the kitchen did not work, but the maintenance man brought another one to us on Monday. The middle sliding glass door in the living room did not lock, so we had the roofing guys cut a piece of aluminum for a brace to secure the door so we could "lock" up at night. The banister on the left going from the front porch is VERY loose. If you use it for support it moves! The walkway to the beach also is loose and sways as you step off the steps. Some nails on the walkway are also coming up and can catch pants, or shoes, you need to be mindful as you walk. Other than these issues we had a wonderful week and will consider this area in future vacation plans.

    • Manager Responded on 3/21/2011

      There is absolutely nothing that advertises this pool as heated. For some reason; people see the picture of the pool and because of the smaller portion of it they assume that is a hot tub. We asked these renters to show us where they saw it advertised as "heated" they could not. THIS IS NOT A HEATED POOL!!!! The owner was just out visiting and looking at the new enclosure over the pool. It had to be done for safety precautions as the previous one was no longer safe. With this being such an extremely popular home there was no open week to schedule it before the Spring Break rush. We are very sorry that our renters experienced this inconvenience. The pool and the surrounding area is cleaned and free of all debris. We have had a ticket called into our telephone company for over a month now regarding the TV in one of the bedrooms. It is scheduled to be fixed on April 5th. There are 2 other functioning TV's in the home in the meantime. We appreciate the feedback on the other items and will make sure to address them immediately.

    The AC was cool
    and so was the pool.
    Our beds were great finds
    But BR windows need blinds.
    We have booked this house twice
    and will probably book thrice.
    Please stock pots and pans
    and you'll be in our plans.

  • The overall condition of maintence upon check in was a concern with screens busted, light bulbs out and some fans/light combinations not working however, within a few days the lights were fixed and the screen was repaired

    The maintenance guy was great and very informative about the area. He was an added benefit! The pool at the location made the days (especially in the heat of the day)a pleasure especially with two boys. They enjoyed all the time there and it was a pleasure for the parents and grandparents as well!
    The overall area was awesome, new to us, but a place we will definitely return to!
    Thanks Costal Joe!
