  • Great place to stay on the beach


    Wonderful trip. Right on the beach. Very nice house with big kitchen. Great place to hang out. Has 3 king size beds! Porch is in the shade most of the day. Will definitely stay here again!

  • Great Place


    This is a great place for families to stay whether you want to be on the beach or spend time on the balcony. The inside is very well maintained and equipped for any function. We had a great time.

  • Loved the stay - property manager had a few issues, but overall Good experience!


    We loved the house. There were a few minor issues - like the bunk beds making a horrible squeaking sound. We fixed it with some WD40 ourselves. The sinks upstairs, when turning them off - went past the “stop” position and we would need to mess with them a bit to stop dripping. The refrigerator shelves fell off the door as soon as we began loading items on it. (We took them out to avoid anymore falls.)

    When we left the house, I received a call from the property manager asking where the fridge shelves were - I told her we had placed them in the Vs obeys above the fridge , and she was upset we had taken them out….telling me they were brand new and we shouldn’t have had any problems with them. I responded by saying, maybe they ordered the wrong size, because the shelves didn’t properly fit the fridge?? Then, she told me we needed to pay our pet deposit because a family in our party had brought a dog. - we had already paid the deposit, and I sent her a copy of the receipt. She responded by saying - she didn’t get anything in my account saying we had paid, ect. So - we called Evolve management to see what the issue was. They told us that we had indeed paid, and they had sent Melissa (property manager) a copy - and to not talk to her anymore, they would deal with her.

    Melissa had also shared with me on the phone she had to clean dog hair off the couch for an hour. (Which I am sorry she had to do that…..but, if you don’t want to clean pet hair up, you probably shouldn’t allow pets in your rental.)

    All that to say - the house was clean when we arrived, the front porch views are amazing, and we loved the space and endless hot water with tons of people showering each day! We booked it for next year. Maybe Melissa will chill out some by them 😁
