The bed was great!
Juan D. Sep 2021
The house was very clean. I think the master bed was super comfortable. I felt like I was sleeping on a cloud. The house was spacious and nicely decorated. Would definitely recommend.
William K. Aug 2021
Home was as described (clean, open and bright) with a limited view of the water (3 minute walk to the beach). This is a professionally managed home so stock up before you arrive. No extras included (i.e. spices, coffee filters, condiments, lighters, etc.).
Manager response:
Hi, William! Thank you so much for taking the time to share your recent experience at Seaside Serenity! We're delighted to hear that you enjoyed this spacious home and its convenient access to the nearby beach. Please note that our homes only provide the basic essentials to get you started and perishables, including condiments and spices, are not provided in order to ensure our high standards of cleanliness and sanitation are continuously met. We do apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused and we encourage guests to plan on bringing any items not explicitly listed as an amenity that are necessary for their trip. We look forward to hosting you, in the future, for another memorable stay!

Beautiful place and not many people around small town feel. House was clean and spacious. Short walk to the beach.
codi m. May 2021
Loved this house. Close walk to beach, and beach was very private! Wish we could stay longer!
Sara B. May 2021
The house is very close to the beach, just a couple hundred yards. It has plenty of space for four people, beyond that would be cramped. The kitchen is well equipped with utensils however, be sure to bring essential ingredients: salt, pepper, oil, herbs, and spices. There was no can opener so we bought one and "donated" it. Also, there was no spray cleaner for spills in the kitchen so we bought some and "donated" it. The king-sized bed in the master bedroom was too soft! We both had a backache after five nights on it. Other than that, we enjoyed our stay.
Manager response:
Hello, Sara! Thank you for your review. We are glad you enjoyed your stay in this beautiful home! We do supply a starter supply of items such as toilet paper, paper towels, laundry soap, and dish soap to ensure the first night of their stay starts off well. We do not supply spices or food items in the home. While we understand that sleeping preferences vary widely, we are sorry to hear that the bed did not meet your expectations. We hope you'll stay with us again!

The house was well stocked, very clean, and in a great location to the beach and away from other homes. Very dog friendly and comfortable. Easy to access and highly recommend. Thank you!

This is the second time we have stayed at Seaside Serenity. It’s a comfortable home with plenty of room for our family. Easy beach access and good parking. But in the year between our stays, no one has bothered to clean up the yard. There is an old Little Tikes table flipped over and a broken lounge chair next to a dirty grill. Unappealing to say the least. The lots on either side are overgrown and filled with debris from Hurricane Michael in October 2018. Needs a good crew to spend an afternoon sprucing up!
Manager response:
Hi, Melinda! Thank you for taking the time to share your review. We're happy to hear this home had all the makings for a pleasant stay! We appreciate you bringing these concerns to our attention and apologize for the inconvenience during your visit. At times, the winds can pick up and blow over patio furniture after our team has cleaned and repaired the home for you. We have removed some of the older chairs and will continue to keep an eye on the outdoor furniture. We will follow-up with our housekeeping team to see that the grill is cleaned to our standards. The yard in the winter can be a bit brown, where during other seasons, the wildflowers are beautiful and bring many butterflies to the home. Additionally, as the home is located on a dune, there is a presence of sea oats that are oftentimes confused for weeds. They are a protected species and cannot be removed, as they hold the sand together and help by warding off erosion. The lots to the east and west of this home are privately owned and maintained separately. We hope this information is helpful, and we hope to provide you with a truly exceptional vacation experience in the future!

What a nice beach house! We had a very comfortable stay. Just the right size for us. Loved that it was so close to the beach. I would definitely recommend this home. I know my family and I will rent this place again for a future getaway.
Joshua P. Aug 2020
We had a great experience in this home!! It was very spacious & we were very thankful to be able to bring our pups with us. The beach is only a block away & it is a pet friendly beach as well. I wish we lived here! The home was very clean. There was enough home goods provided to last two people the weekend (we had six so we needed a few more). We can't wait to come back.
Jessica M. Jul 2020
We loved this house! It was a short walk to the beach and had everything we needed for our trip. Would definitely stay there again!
Brad B. May 2020
This was a great place for our family. It’s a two minute walk to the beach and there’s almost no one on the beach. Recommendation - apparently you can take your cars or golf cart on the beach there. Everyone did. It was a fun place for our quick weekend trip!
John B. Jan 2020
Our 2nd stay at Seaside Searenity. The weather was good. We were very comfortable. This was our 7th stay on Indian Pass and 2nd at SS. All our rentals have been very nice, this is our favorite.
Melinda W. Jan 2020
We loved the location and proximity to the beach. It was quiet. Nice house with accommodations for our family of 6. Plenty of seating in the very spacious great room.
Charles J. C. Dec 2019
The owners of Seaside Searenity have done a wonderful job providing a great place to stay. The location, between gulf beach and Indian Lagoon, ensures you can walk to the beach and walk to fishing spots on the lagoon. The house it self is well equipped and maintained. The furnishings, although not new, were in much better condition than we have found in other vacation rentals. We had a great time at this house - can think of no reason you wouldn't have a great time as well.
Jeffrey P. Oct 2019
They very much had Safety in mind for there visitors! When you step out at night the lights come on every step of the way so what might be unfamiliar to you is bathed in light by your movement and shuts off when you leave that area to help save the turtles on the beach! Safety for you and safety for the turtles!
Jacqueline G. Sep 2019
Loved the private beach and comfy beachhouse! Our family had a blast! Thank you!
LINDA F. Jun 2019
The house was an awesome house! Enjoyed the roomness, the decor, and the beds were amazing! It was a short walk to the beach, a boardwalk or walkway would have made it perfect. And also much easier transporting all the beach gear to the beach each day. Bit we managed with no worries. Loved the area, the house, the beach and the privacy! ! No complaints what so ever!
Brandi M S. Apr 2019
Close to the beach

Seaside Serenity is a great little house in a perfect location. It had everything I needed. I absolutely love the screened porch and two sun decks off the bedrooms. I highly recommend this home.
