You are within walking distance to shopping, dining, activities etc.

This property was amazing and Keith was super quick with the communication which was very helpful throughout our booking and stay. We came for an easy going family vacation. The house is cozy and a little old school, but more than perfect for a beach retreat. We rented out both the front and back units and they connected on the inside which was perfect for accommodating a group of extended family. We cooked most of our meals at the house (the kitchen was well stocked with pots, pans, and utensils to make this possible). Location is perfect. 5-10 min walk to the beach. Easy to do even with small children. Neighborhood is pretty quiet. Neighbors are friendly. Restaurants and shops are walkable within 14-20 min. The property comes with round 1 of laundry detergent, dishwasher detergent, sponge, paper towels, trash bags, and toilet paper. Bring a supply if you think you will need more. And bring your beach towels, beach gear, and maybe a wagon to make transporting to the beach easier. Thanks for a great week!

The house is a great value for the location! I noticed an earlier review mentioned that the sheets were bad but we didn't mind them at all. I would recommend bringing your own bath towels because the ones provided don't soak up any water. Also, if you are staying for more than 3 days I would bring along an extra garbage bag or two. Otherwise, you can't find a better place for the price. We walked to The Hangout every night in under 15 minutes and the beach in less than 5 minutes. The house was clean and ready to go when we arrived which we appreciated! All in all, a great place to stay.

The house was great! I think it would be helpful to have a few extra garbage bags and an additional dishwasher detergent for guests staying more than 3 days.

The house was comfortable and convenient to the beach. Everything we needed was within a short driving distant. The host always got back to me about all my questions. We will be booking with them again in the future. I LOVED that I could bring my dogs.

The location was nice but the house was not worth the money we paid. It was dirty and very outdated, one bedroom didn't even have a working light. The owners grandson lives in half of the house which is not in the description. We were not able to park under our side of the house because the grandson had people parking there. My family and I couldn't enjoy sitting outside of the house because of the loud music and people arguing over the phone. My husband also walked down stairs to people hanging out around our boat twice. So that being said, I would NOT recommend staying in this house. MANAGERS RESPONSE: Dear Guest, Thank you for sharing your thoughts and concerns about your time at the Gulf's Secret. Let me apologize for not disclosing this unit is a duplex and is owner occupied. This was an oversight on my part as I failed to add this information to the VRBO site. I will certainly review your concerns about parking, music and arguing on the phone with the owner. I am hoping this is a one time occurrence as I have not had any complaints in the past. I am surprised you found the home to be dirty. I use one of the best cleaning services available and they often recieve compliments and appreciation tips. Yes, this is an older beach home and I try my best to describe with words and current pictures. As for as pricing I attempt to stay in tune to market conditions and even try to discount when possible. Most find $159 per night for a two bedroom home, two blocks from the beach to be a reason rate. Motel rooms on the island are $200 plus during summer months. I truly regret you were disappointed with your stay at the Gulf's Secret. I strive to provide the best service to make sure my guest are completely satisfied. Best Regards, Keith

We stayed at Gulf's Secret over the 4th of July and had a great trip. I don't want to mislead and say that this is the nicest beach house I've ever been in but it had a few key things going for it. They have a nice location, accept dogs, and are very affordable. In addition, the property manager was extremely responsive and helpful which is wonderful to have. All of that is what made it a good stay. The furnishings and property are a bit dated and the facilities probably need upgrading but taking into account the price of the unit I would say that the value is there and this property could enable a family/group to have a beach vacation when it might not otherwise be attainable. As long as you go into it aware of how much (or how little) you are paying in relation to other properties then I think you'll have a great time.
