You guys did a great job checking in on us, and getting everything set up. And that's why I gave you a 10. The place we stayed is not a 10. It needs some TLC by the owners (deep cleaning and repairs). The location to the beach was phenomenal. There are lots of biting flies at Indian Pass, though (another downer).

Wonderful dog friendly home steps from the beach.

We, an adult family group of 4, visited for a week for Thanksgiving. The house was wonderful, the beach a few steps away. The furnishings were very nice and comfortable and the kitchen with its ample counter space was great! There was even a turkey roaster pan.sitting on the counter for us when we arrived. We appreciated the fact that there was a gate on the deck that led to the ground as we had 2 dogs with us.

Could have been a bit better.

The place was clean and well furnished. A couple things that would have made our stay better include a table on the balcony outside the kitchen. There is one at upstairs balcaony but who is going to carry meals upstairs. Several lights were burned including top of stairwell from garage. 2 upstairs ceiling fans only operate on one speed. Upstairs carpet needs professionally cleaning, animal spots everywhere. The bar stools are rickety to the point of needing replacing. There needs to be a light above the dining table. You basically cant eat there in the evening as it's too dark.

Great vacation!

Our extended family stayed in this home the last week of July. It was clean, well furnished, and had plenty of room. The short walk to the beach made for easy trips. The kitchen had everything we needed which we appreciated as we cooked most evenings. A fishing trip and horseback riding on the beach were enjoyed by several family members. Dolphin watching from the beach was amazing. We saw several everyday! A clogged shower drain was our only problem. One phone call and that issue was promptly fixed. Early morning walks on the beach, lots of time in the water, fishing and riding, dinner time, and playing dominoes made our stay at Starbright Retreat one of our best vacations ever!

Love the house

We visited in July 2019. The accommodations were just perfect for our family. Access to the beach was easy. Would definitely consider staying there again in the future,

Great House!

This was an upgrade for us, as the house we rented initially had a flooring problem. Very spacious, very comfortable, and 1 house back from the beach. Fully equipped, very clean, and well appointed.

Great Beach

The house was great, my only complaint was the mattresses were very uncomfortable, they need to be upgraded. I had to sleep on the sofa. Everything else about the house was fantastic.
