Loved the Layout/floor plan of house. Loved the view of beach.

We first got there . We were amazed of how close the beach was . Then we went up the stairs to find a beautiful home very well kept. Very new the deck is very nice , the beds are awesome very relaxing. Kitchen full of all your needs . The water from the Faust is cold and tasty. But the only bad thing about this place is all the water built up in the driveway makes it almost impossible to park your car do to getting stuck. Land owner needs to fix this.
Manager response:
Thank you for your review, Tim! We are glad that you enjoyed your stay with us. Our owner’s are in the process of completing the driveway but unfortunately that has been hampered by the extreme amount of rain that has fallen int he area lately. We hope that this did not cause to much of an inconvenience and we hope to host you again very soon!

The Blue Barnacle experience was AMAZING! When you drive up, you can not believe you are that close to the beach! The house itself is bright blue and adorable, surrounded by other colorful homes - it looks like Key West. There is a large patio area with a grill, tables and chairs, bar, and private shower on the lower level - perfect for breakfast or a late afternoon cook out. When you go upstairs, there is a huge patio overlooking the beach with plenty of seating/lounge chairs, including nice patio furniture in the shade. It was very easy to access the key to enter the house. The house inside is gorgeous! It is obvious the place is brand new and the owners thought of everything - large rooms, large kitchen/island, all of kitchen amenities/appliances you need, TVs in every room with access to all of your personal streaming services, wifi, 2 bathrooms, and plenty of space to sleep up to 10 people. The house is beautifully decorated with a modern nautical theme and was super comfortable. An extra nice touch was the board games, beach toys for the kids, and washer/dryer. The beach is a quick stroll from the house and perfect for spending the afternoon playing in the water, enjoying the sunrise/sunset, or collecting shells. An added bonus is the house is very close to the main part of town for groceries, shopping (they have some cute little boutiques and stores), or eating seafood at one of the local restaurants. I will definitely be back and highly recommend staying here. Beach living at its best!

Loved staying at the blue barnacle everything about the home was beautiful staring with Great decorations just lovely and clean. So peaceful and private enjoyed the patio all night with the ocean view and wave sounds. Kids didnt want to leave they said they loved the house and we are taking a great experience with us. Will be coming back!

This beach house vacation has got EVERYTHING right! The location is ideal and it feels like your own private beach, with the water directly in front of your huge patio/deck. We sat in the deck lounge chairs and we could see so many stars as well as hear the waves crashing nearby. The beach house itself is Gorgeous and has all that you can possibly dream of including a grill, spacious rooms, fantastic showers, every cooking utensil and appliance, TVs, WiFi, and WOW the decorating is lovely! My son said, ¨This is the life!¨ TRULY!!!! We will be back very very soon.
