Great Stay for Two Families

by Southlake TX

5 of 5

Nice house, very clean and well maintained and we especially enjoyed the stocked kitchen set-up though we cooked less than usual given the convenient options nearby. Short walk to the beach though wading across the stream at the bottom of the beach access was a surprise the first day though you get used to it plus our kids loved playing in it. Would recommend.

Amazing Beach Home

by Glenna J.

5 of 5

It is Swell is our new favorite place on 30A! Can't say enough wonderful things about this amazing beach home. It is tucked away on a quiet street perfectly located for quick beach access as well as close to restaurants and Buddy's Seafood Market (the best for fresh seafood). This house is beautifully decorated, immaculately clean, with a fully equipped kitchen. Such a peaceful, joyful atmosphere. We really like having a bedroom, bathroom, den and kitchen on the first floor. The spacious bunk room is an added bonus, especially if you have lots of kids. The icing on the cake for us is the covered deck off the 3rd floor with a spiral staircase leading up to "crow's nest" for views of the Gulf and spectacular sunsets. Even though the weather was a bit cooler, we spent lots of time on the covered deck on the comfy furniture reading and just enjoying the ambiance. We have stayed in so many homes over the years in the 30A area, and this home is our favorite. We will definitely be back!

248 Williams st.

by Stockbridge GA

5 of 5

This place is beautiful! Everything was nice and clean. The kids enjoyed the two sets of built in bunk beds. When looking at the pictures that was the winner for me! Upstairs deck and the staircase leading to the top deck gave nice views. Only issue was the bottom AC unit kept getting clogged so it was hot downstairs. When I called about the issue they had someone come out in less the 30 min. So that was great! But later that night is stopped working again. Despite that we loved the place and me and my kids can't wait to go back next year!

Response from Benchmark Management
