"Our family had a great time during our stay at Good Vibrations! We had a total of 4 adults and 5 kids ages 10 - 17. We have stayed at other beach houses in the past and this was by far the cleanest and best-stocked house we have rented. The kitchen has everything you need. One of my sons has Celiac so we need to make all of our own meals even when on vacation, and I was pleasantly surprised at all of the cookware available. I had brought some of my own just in case, but ended up not needing to use it. The stand-alone ice machine was awesome. We loved not having to make an ice-run every day. For times when we did need to run to the store to get something, the location couldn’t have been better! We were very spoiled having Scallop Cove and Beach Planet right across the street! The outdoor shower was great...we loved that the water was warm! Although we were told nothing is a guarantee from visit-to-visit, the beach supply closet was nicely stocked with sand toys and boogie boards. The beds were super comfortable...even more so that some of the beds in our own home! We loved how every room had a water view of either the gulf or the bay...or both! And having a bathroom in every bedroom was a huge plus! Even when we would all come in from the beach and needed to take showers, we never ran out of hot water. There were a few minor issues, but nothing that would prevent us from recommending this house to others! There are a TON of stairs, and no elevator. If your room is on the top floor, you will be going up 36 fairly steep stairs to get there...and that doesn’t include all the stairs to get up to the house from the beach! A better WiFi router is needed for a house that accommodates 15 people. Only one or two of us could be on it at a time. If someone else tried to get on, it would kick someone off. The brown couch in the living room is incredibly uncomfortable because the back is hard and very straight. Anyone sitting on that couch had to sit sideways against the arm with a pillow propped behind them. It made it hard in the evening when we all wanted to relax because there wasn’t enough couch space. The mattress of the sofa sleeper on the third floor needs replacing, and the igniter on the gas grill didn’t work (we were able to get it going with a lighter). These were just minor things, and did not detract from our overall enjoyment of our vacation. This was our first visit to the area and everyone was so friendly! One of the guys who works at Scallop Cove got to know the 16 & 17 year olds due to their frequent trips to the store, and he saw them when we were up at the State Park one of the days and came over to visit with them for a few minutes. We rented some of our equipment through VayK due to the credit, but got some other last-minute rentals from San Flea just across and slightly up the street. Super friendly and helpful! The beach itself was great. We saw dolphins almost every day, saw someone catch a shark one morning, and we loved the beach fires at night. We also enjoyed kayaking on the bay. We will be coming back to the area next year for sure! The only thing preventing us from renting Good Vibrations again is the lack of a pool, but that is a personal preference due to one of my sons not being able to tolerate extended days of salt water. If Good Vibrations added a pool, we would be back every year for many years to come! You will not be disappointed if you rent this house!"- Sarah
