The salt shack is so close to the beach but still quiet though on gulf drive. It has an open kitchen and living space and 3 nice bedrooms. The beds were very comfy. Great stay! The kitchen is updated and easy to use. The cabinets are all labeled to help find items. However, when we booked the unit was pet friendly, and we payed a pet fee in our booking, now it says it is not. That’s disappointing because we would stay here again, but cannot now with our 10lb Shih Tzu.

Few criticisms: it is a duplex. Though your pool and home is completely private the walls are not super insulated. So you can hear other people along the kitchen/dining area wall and the twin bed room, as well as, in the outside area (though it’s fenced and private). The other thing is while the pool is an oasis with all the greenery, my husband had to skim and clean it daily because of all the foliage and things in the pool. Nice thing is the pool service comes twice weekly, but it took about 45-60 min of my husband skimming to clean it up when we arrived on Saturday 8/1 before it was usable. But, by the end of the trip, with some daily TLC, it was gorgeous since my husband cleaned it every morning. We usually rent a home with a screened in pool, so that was new for us.
Manager response:
Thank you for your feedback,Erin. We are pleased to hear you enjoyed the home! We agree the pool area is like having your own little oasis in paradise. The foliage helps to buffer out street noise as well. Florida in August does tend to have high winds and short rain showers which causes foliage to break off and fall into the pool. Thankfully, these owners have pool service twice every week. Unfortunately, pool companies are closed on weekends here. We will recommend to the owners to trim back the foliage to help keep it from falling in the pool. We've also added information on the shared walls to the home information link available to booking guests as well as to the listing. We hope to see you again!

This rental was amazing. The location was very close to shopping and restaurants and only a 1 block walk to the beach. The house had a private, secluded and somewhat shaded pool that was perfect after a day on the beach. Everything you could possibly need was already at the house; beach chairs, wagon, beach canopy, beach toys, umbrellas as well as bikes. The house has a great layout with everything needed for a relaxing vacation including all sheets, towels, pots/pans, dishes, all cutlery, griddle, gas grill and great washer and dryer. House was very clean, impeccably decorated and extremely well organized. Would definitely rent here again and may do so in the near future!!

We loved our stay at the Salt Shack. The pool area was an oasis that everyone in the family enjoyed. We loved the open and spacious living area. Salt Shack had everything we needed. It is only a short walk to the beach and we felt like it was in a perfect location on the island.

The house is comfortable and clean with a fantastic pool. The access to the beach is a quick, easy walk. It is within walking distance of Publix, Walgreens and several little restaurants and shops. We enjoyed the grill and bicycles. We will definitely stay here again!

Just a short walk to beach, restaurants and shopping.

Great pool area...private secluded, you wouldn't know there is anyone around but your family.

Clean and well stocked...if you need anything within minutes you are there.

Only one problem...we had to leave.
Robin C. Jun 2020
I loved how the house was so close to the beach. There were plenty of bath and beach towels. The kitchen was well equipped with furnishings. There was plenty of living room seating for my family. It was nice that we were able to use the beach chairs and wagon; it made walking to the beach a breeze.

Close proximity to beach and grocery store, well stocked kitchen as far as pots and pans, knives, dishes, etc., beach equipment, bikes, clean pool.
Thomas S. Mar 2020
Love the house layout and how clean the inside was.
Mary Ellen S. Dec 2019
The location couldn’t me more convenient! It is so close to the beach and your shopping needs for sure. Breakfast on the beach is a block away. You can also get to the hot spots on AMI easily too because the house is so central.

It’s also worth mentioning that this house is just better. I’ve stayed in a lot of rentals. But the salt shack provides nicer linens, a great washer and dryer, a generous amount of plates and the kitchen is stocked with better than average contents like sharp knives, an assortment of bowls, etc. Basically, all the things you want to have on hand are already there. The garage also contains some nice pool beach toys and a wagon to make your trips to the beach a breeze. It’s all at the Salt Shack.

This was the second year we rented with our family. Very well equipped home with great pool. Grocery store and beach within a few minutes walk. Highly recommended.

Karen R. Jun 2019
We loved Salt Shack! It is in a great location, close to the beach, dining and shopping. We also loved that they provided bikes, that saved us some bucks 😜 We would definitely stay here again!

This was our first time staying at Salt Shack and you cannot beat the location! It is about a block from the beach and the pool at the home is amazing. One thing that isn't clear in the description is the home is a duplex - but has a private entrance and pool. We only heard the neighbors a few times but overall - we didn't know they were even there. The home is well equipped and very comfortable. We initially had issues with getting into the garage because there wasn't a remote left in the home, but after making a phone call, the maintenance guy showed up with remote in hand. We brought our 2 small dogs and loved the pathways near the home so we could go on walks in the evening. Highly recommend!

This is a very well laid out and spacious 3 bedroom home with a beautiful pool in a very private yard. The outdoor furniture is top notch and lots of it. The bbq was great and there were lots of bbq utensils. There were beach towels and chairs along with a beach umbrella for our use, along with pool toys. The house was within walking distance, about 2 mins, to Publix, a dollar store, two beach shops and a CVS and Walgreens Pharmacy. The beach was also only a 2 minute walk. We loved our two week vacation there!
Brenda S. Feb 2019
We loved the convenience to everything and the unit is beautiful. Everything is very well organized and stocked. We had a problem with the pool heater not working. Several pool techs came to service the unit and unfortunately it was finally fixed the day before we had to leave. The owners refunded some of our rental because of this. We would definitely stay again
Cheryl L. Jan 2019
This home has everything you need while on vacation, so close to the beach, stores, anything you could need. The pool was perfect for the kids. We will definitely be back!
Heather C. Jun 2018
Everything was perfect. Thanks for a great summer kickoff!
Ashly M. Apr 2018
We didn’t have one single complaint and will be back!!

What a great property. The location is great. The set up of the house is perfect. The decor of the house is beautiful. The pool area was a big hit with both adults and kids. We also appreciated the items available for us to use in the garage, the wagon was very helpful and the bikes were used also.

"The property was super clean and exactly as advertised."
Frances L. Mar 2017
This is a wonderful vacation home. It is clean, well equipped, and exactly as advertised. It is literally a one minute walk to the beach with many beach supplies provided, including umbrellas, chairs, sand toys for the kids, and a great beach wagon to pile everything into. The bikes were all in good condition with baskets and locks. The pool is lovely and private and was cleaned twice a week. Plenty of bath and beach towels were provided. The management company is on the ball also. If any issue arises during your stay, a tech is sent immediately to correct the problem. The photos of this rental are truly accurate. What you see is what you get. Lovely property!

My wife, daughter and her pet bulldog stayed in the Salt Shack from Jan 7 to Jan 28, 2017. I cannot say how pleased we were this facility. Clean, spacious, well laid out, well equipped, close to the beach, walking distance to restaurants and groceries, heated pool, everything was just fantastic. In our 3 week stay we probably ate out half the time and used the barbecue at the salt shack the other half. We would definitely rent the Salt Shack again. Thank you to the owners for providing such a lovely facility.
Sharon M. Jan 2017
My husband and I just got back from our 2 week vacation at the Salt Shack. The house was amazing and the tropical landscaping was peaceful and beautiful!. It truly is an island oasis. The house had everything we needed. The proximity to the beach made this home extra special. This particular beach access point was never crowded. It was one of the most relaxing and memorable vacations we've ever had. Can't wait for our next stay at the Salt Shack! Highly recommend!!
Connie D. Aug 2016
My family of 6 loved this place! The house was amazing, and it was equipped with everything! Including almost everything in the kitchen you would need, a lot of towels, throws, wash clothes and everything you need for the beach. The pool and landscaping was great too! We have rented a lot of houses, but this was absolutely our favorite! Thank you Salt Shack for making our vacation wonderful.
Chad A. Jul 2016
"Services are great. We are sooo pleased with the house, pool, ocean. Definitely a two thumbs up place to vacation."

We had a great time at Salt Shack! We will definitely be returning! Thank you!

We have traveled all over the World and have stayed at two places we have really enjoyed..."The Salt Shack" and a cabin looking out on the Grand Tetons..... We found this to be a home away from home. My wife's first comment was "I could live here" when we walked into the private entry and seeing the pool, surrounded by a landscape that assures absolute privacy! The main entrance into the "Salt Shack" just draws you in and feels like home! Everything is just perfect from the comfy beds in the large rooms, openness of the home and pool is perfect. The "perfect location" from the closeness to the beach, shopping and great restaurants, The bikes make it easy to go to breakfast at "Peaches" or grab the best burgers at "Skinnies" of just explore the island. The sunsets are spectacular and the water is crystal clear with powder white beach..... just perfect! We look forward to our next stay at this perfect little piece of heaven!
