5 Star review!
Posted on: 10/10/2020

A perfect location, the private pool and patio were an added bonus. Having 3 floors allowed all of us to have our private space too. Loved it!

Wonderful Getaway
Posted on: 9/15/2020

Great "quarantining" trip with life-long girlfriends. Great setting to sit around the pool. Close to the beach and state park beach access. Close to restaurants and wonderful bedroom layouts!

The house is just like the pictures!
Posted on: 9/10/2020

This was hands down one of the best beach houses that I've stayed in. Clean, equipped, and peaceful. The space is phenomenal and the pool was definitely a bonus for me and my family. I will keep this house as my go to vacation home for years to come.

A Great Time Away!
Posted on: 8/29/2020

We were looking for a getaway for our family that still allowed for social distancing with much better scenery. A private pool, a short walk to the beach that was never crowded and and several close takeout/ dine in options were just perfect. The house was clean, everything we needed to cook meals at home was available, and the space fit our party of 8 comfortably. Communication was great and the property was just what we were looking for - a great time away!

'The Most Perfect Beach Rental!'
Posted on: 9/13/2019

The most perfect beach rental! Very spacious, gorgeous layout, and perfect accommodations! This house was a dream for our girls weekend. We could not have had a more perfect time celebrating! Beach Walk properties and LiveWell30A were so accommodating to all of our request and needs. We will be back for sure! Also, the beds are dreamy, it was hard getting out but the beach was calling out name! Thank you!

Thanks for a great spring break!

We loved staying at Shell of a Good Time. The location was ideal and the house offered everything we could ask for.

Exceeded expectations!
Posted on: 10/27/2018

Our stay was wonderful! The home is well equipped, very clean, and beautifully decorated. As advertised, the beach is just a short walk away. The pool was nice, as it was relaxing to be able to take a quick swim in the morning or in the evening. We also enjoyed the bicycles! We couldn't have asked for anything more! We cannot wait to stay here again!

Kevin S.
Great location. Overall clean and well furnished.

Perfect vacation spot for large group
Posted on: 7/23/2018

 We all had a wonderful time here. This is our second visit to the area. The first house we rented was much smaller. That extra restroom and loft area really made a huge difference. We would definitely return. The area was also fabulous and all the folks we met at the various shops were very friendly and helpful. Especially at the local grocery store. The beach was an easy walk....we used it twice a day. In between, we used the pool. Great way to relax and spend the week.

Thanks for everything.

Beautiful Home & CLOSE walk to the beach!
Posted on: 6/22/2018

 This house was wonderful! Our kids played in the pool a ton- it was perfect. The decor is so cute and the house is comfy!! TONS of extra pillows and way more towels than we needed. All the little extras were very much appreciated. The listing isn't exaggerated when it says an easy walk to the beach. It was plenty close enough for us 3 adults and 6 kids! (Which are 8 - 5 year olds). The Kids LOVED all sleeping together in the bunk room. It's a super close walk to the gas station to get any quick items we forgot. And the drive to Publix is close, too. It's just a couple miles from Seaside- which we enjoyed an evening down there with the most precious little park, food and shopping area. We loved having the bikes to use- it was so much fun! I can't possibly list all of the wonderful things about our trip. We thank you so much for opening up your home to us!!! It was worth every penny!!

This home has everything you need to relax, 5 minutes from the beautiful beach, the private pool was another great feature of this home, the kitchen had everything needed for meal prep, all room equiped with plenty of towels and pillows, overall a wonderful experience, my family and I will definitely return. Thank you for the memories!

Great house for our group
Posted on: 4/20/2018

 This house is located on a street of cute little houses, just a short walk to the beach. We had a total of 10 teenagers and adults, and the house was able to accommodate us all comfortably. Everything was nice and clean - well the carpet on the stairs could use a cleaning - but everything else was perfect. Great area for sitting around the pool!

Chad T.
Great house...we would stay here again!
Posted on: 11/3/2017

 The house was clean, had plenty of room, had a small private pool, was in a great location, and was close to the beach. What more could you ask for. We would definitely stay here again.

Elizabeth L.
Great location and very clean! Would definitely stay here again!
Posted on: 8/30/2017

 The walk to the beach was easy, only about 2 blocks to the boardwalk. The home was very clean and well decorated. We enjoyed  the pool in the late afternoon after all day at the beach. Wonderful restaurants close by was a plus. We didn't have to travel far for anything we needed. 

Posted on: 8/28/2017

 Everything promised in this BEAUTIFUL HOME was true! I was so impressed with the immaculate cleanliness! I was super impressed when I looked out the window bright and early one morning at the beautifully landscaped yard and pool, and there was a gentleman treating the pool and had skimmed  the pool after it had rained the night before! AWESOME! I love the decor of this home and the seating in the den and dining area was so COMFORTABLE and PERFECT for everyone to gather around and be together! The walk to the beach was so easy and I love the fact that the Tom Thumb store was right there to pick up anything we needed, including renting movies! I love the idea of a home where everyone can be together but you can go upstairs to your own quiet, beautiful bedroom and bathroom when you want to! The top floor, upstairs den was a wonderful plus to slip away to the beautiful decor, TV and couch (which was also a sleeper sofa!) and then  to sit outside at night on the rooftop and look at the stars and hear the ocean waves and see a glimpse of the water! Thank you for sharing your beautiful home and thank you to Beachwalk Vacations for making the entire process flow seamlessly and so easily! Everything they promised they did! The keyless, code entry did appear on my phone as promised and their phone app was fabulous! Daniel, from the office, answered very quickly and was very courteous with any question! He was truly like our own personal concierge! Please keep up the great work and this beautiful property! And yes, we certainly did have a "Shell of a 'Great' Time"!
