Bright, Welcoming Home With Gulf-Front Views! Private Pool! Free Bike Rentals!
Surfer Dog is a beach-goers paradise just a short walk from the white sands of the Gulf of Mexico. The spacious interior and accommodating bedrooms allow for up to 13 guests to enjoy this beautiful getaway. The covered balcony is a great place to watch morning light and crashing waves with a cup of coffee and the fully equipped kitchen is perfect for whipping up breakfast for the whole group. Once everyone is awake and ready to start the day, head out to the private pool and soak up the sun in a lounge chair or take a dip in the refreshing waters. To feel the sand on your toes, take a quick stroll down to the beach with a picnic in hand for a great way to spend the afternoon. When it is time to call it a night, draw a bath in the master bedroom and take a moment for yourself. Join the group back in the living area and cozy up on the large sectional while watching a favorite movie on the flatscreen TV. If you are looking for more space for a family reunion or other special occasion, Surfer Dog may be rented with Turtle Watch which accommodates up to 12 guests and is located on the same lot!

The house is nice and we would rent again. Bedrooms are spacious. However, we only gave it 4 stars because the house needs just a little TLC, e.g., door knob was broken, pool furniture was broken, multiple lights were out, etc.
Hi, Carl! We are so glad you stayed with us and let us know about your experience. The pool furniture has been repaired, door handle tightened, and dead lightbulbs replaced. Your feedback is so appreciated. We hope to see you again!

The location of this house was great. We had 6 adults and 3 kids and we fit comfortably. The management team quickly responded to any issues that we had.

The best part about this property was its location! Perfect access to the beach! However, there are a few improvements needed. First of all, the cleaning could improve for new arrivals. The floor was sandy, and areas had not been swept. The top bunk beds were not made. The kitchen could be better stocked with silverware, pots, and pans. Fortunately, we did bring these items based on previous guest’s comments. There were definitely some great views, yet blinds could not be opened or raised, especially upstairs to appreciate beach views. The pool was much loved by our grandkids but not sure why the outside lights on the porch where not all working nor the pool lights. Despite these comments, ``````````we did have a great time at the beach. Great memories and will definitely return but not to this property.
Hi, Papa Lou & Gigi! We are so glad you stayed with us and shared your experience. The blinds have been repaired, the kitchen is stocked, and the pool lights have been replaced. We do hope to see you again!

We loved Surfer dog! Here's why.
House is roomy and well designed. It comfortably sleeps 10. Plenty of towels. Master bedrooms are fantastic and bathrooms are nice and clean. Wrap around deck on both levels provides plenty of space to hang out. Pool was nice and clean. The inclusion of 4 bikes, and 3 beach umbrellas with 6 chairs that are set up by someone every day is a huge bonus.
This is house is in a very nice area, that's not too dense with development. That helps manage the crowd at the local beach access, yet it's only a 5 minute bike ride to the town of Rosemary Beach, which is very nice.
The beach is hundred feet away. You're not on it, but next to as close as possible. There's a large bush area in front of the house, so you can see some ocean, but not the beach from the 1st floor. The 2nd floor view is great. Price was reasonable.
The only reason for 4 starts instead of 5 is there were several, small annoying maintenance issues. Several door handles were broken (but still somewhat functional), and looked to be for a while. Some of the window blinds were broken, or didn't work well. The refrigerator leaks sporadically, but that's probably an issue the owner is not aware of, or may be new. Kitchen needs new frying pans and a proper cutting board. Even though the house sleeps 10 comfortably, there are only 8 forks? Felt pads on the kitchen chairs would have kept the wood floor from getting ruined. Having said all that, we would return in a minute. Everything else about the house is great.
