  • 4th Birthday Beach Celebration


    Our second visit for the Sunshine House, and we love the location. The property has the amenities we look for when we visit Sargent. Intercoastal fishing, views of the beach, plenty space, and easy access for us to load our buggy and ride out to the beach for much needed R&R. Till next time, thank you!

  • Great location!


    The place was a perfect fit for us! Spacious and a great location for fishing the ICW and perfect for us to take our SxS out onto the beach. We’ll be back!

  • Great Place on the Water


    Our family spent July 4 weekend here. It was a great location with the ICW out the backdoor with a great deck for fishing and watching the barges. The beach is a short walk out the front and was never crowded. The rooms were very comfortable, and the kitchen was well equipped for cooking.

  • Keep looking!


    Where do I start? Dingy and dirty. Grass in back was high, outside balcony does not have cover like pictures. windows were dirty, parts of kitchen cabinets with drips of food/liquid, coffee maker with old filter and coffee grounds, trash drawer had trash around it, stairs and upstairs carpet was dingy with stains, water was yellow; can see it in shower and toilet. Couldn’t feel clean after taking a shower just looking at the yellowish water. No dishwasher! Outside fishing pear table light didn’t work! Outside surveillance cameras were not facing the stairs as described, they face the front and back porch- did not feel like we had any privacy!! Six of us stayed 3 nights and they leave only one roll of napkins and 3 rolls of toilet paper!!

    Location is great but not worth the money for a not well maintained rental!! Needs TLC..

    Manager's Response:

    Hi Angelica, we are happy to hear that you enjoyed the location! We want our guests to rest easy when they stay with us, and we apologize if you experienced some issues during your trip. We followed up with the homeowner after reading your feedback, and they wanted to share the following:
    - As is standard for vacation rentals, the homeowner provides a starter supply of paper essentials for guests’ convenience. Guests may have to purchase their additional supplies, especially for longer stays or larger groups.
    - Our listing reflects the layout of the home and we are sorry if you were caught off-guard. The homeowner prides themselves on being transparent and accommodating to all guests and would have been more than happy to walk you through the exact layout of the home had you inquired during the booking process.
    - We use a cleaning service to have the home professionally cleaned before each guest's arrival. We wish you had reached out to the Guest Contact during your stay if there were any issues you needed addressing. We would have done everything we could to resolve them immediately so that you could enjoy the home.
    - Although we do our best to keep the outdoor area clean if there are a few days between guest check-out and the next check-in, it is certainly possible for Mother Nature to affect the outdoor area once our cleaning crew has left.
    - We always work with guests if issues arise and apologize that we were unable to come to the resolution you were hoping for based on the documentation provided.
    We truly go above and beyond for our guests, and are confident that future guests will have excellent stays!
