We had 5 families with small children and the space was more than adequate. The open kitchen/dining/living room is feels even bigger in person than the pictures show. The highlight for our group was having the nice patio with pool right off the front door.The sand is less than a 2-minute walk away. The only minor drawback is that large-sized pots and pans are limited so you may want to bring a spare if you are cooking for a large family/group. We highly recommend and look forward to staying here again sometime. My Response Thank you for taking the time to review the property, Kenneth. I am so glad your group enjoyed your stay and were comfortable! I am going to add a couple of larger pots and pans to the sets we have so future guests who may wish to use them will have what they need so I definitely appreciate you posting that for guests and for me to improve upon. We look forward to having you back again!
Mrs Clarissa (owner) was always reachable, anytime no matter what she made herself available. The house was absolutely beautiful, you could tell it was very well kept and no expensive was spared when furnishing it. Everything was very spacious for our large group of 19. There was also easy access to the beach using the back gate. And the laundry rooms on floor 1 and floor 2 were such a necessity with such a large group. The small problem that arose was an ant problem outside by the pool and around the house throughout the entire stay, but she did send someone out to spray it just was an ongoing issue that will need more attention. Other then that everything was perfect, I'd highly recommend the place to anyone and am considering renting both houses for a family trip. The gates by the pool areas open up and would create a big open space for everyone to hang out outside! Thanks for everything.
My family just got back from vacation staying at this property and everything was exceptional. The house was huge and beautiful with excellent amenities. We had 11 adults and 2 children and also brought our dogs along and everyone had plenty of room and a great time. The house was within a couple minutes drive of two grocery stores and was about 8 minutes drive from downtown Rosemary Beach. We actually really loved staying a little bit out of the main hub of the city because parking was never an issue, the beach wasn't crowded, and it was only about 25 minutes to the Panama City Airport (which was quite helpful when making 4 runs to the airport during the course of the week). There was an outdoor shower that actually got warm water which was great for washing off after the beach, the gates were secure so I felt comfortable leaving my dogs there, it has not one but two washer and dryers, it had quick and easy access to the beach, and plenty of beach towels for use. Having an additional living area on the third floor really worked well when the 1.5 yr old had to take her naps and go to bed early as we stayed up downstairs playing board games (the house actually had quite the selection of games). We already were discussing coming back next summer and how we hope it works to stay at this house again or even get a larger group and rent both this house and its sister property next door that had the option to open into the same backyard. Highly recommend.
We had 9 adults and 10 children stay for a week in this beautiful home. All of the beds had very comfortable mattresses with extra blankets and pillows to accommodate everyone. There were multiple spaces to gather together for meals, tv time or outside around the pool. The pool was small but our young children enjoyed it. This house has been well stocked with plenty of dishes and cooking utensils to make staying in for a meal a breeze. The grocery store is only a mile away! We very much appreciated the assortment of games and books which kept us entertained on the rainy days. Great location away from the hustle and bustle, with a beautiful white sand beach in a residential area. It was a wonderful trip! Tip: make sure both ice makers in the downstairs freezer are turned on. There is one in the door and one in the drawer.
Our family of 15 (10 adults, two 11-year-olds, and 3 pre-schoolers) had a great week at Dog Dayze! The main-floor bedroom was perfect for us, the grandparents. The huge kitchen allowed for several of us to be involved in food prep, and there was plenty of room for everyone to sit at mealtime. 2 laundry areas were perfect for evening washing of beach towels and kid clothes. Our whole family loved the outdoor space. The brick patio was huge, and we spent a lot of time out there. The kids absolutely loved the pool! They swam whenever they weren't at the beach. In fact, our 5-year-old granddaughter learned to swim over the week. She was so excited! Our adult sons loved the ping-pong table and had some friendly competition going on. The wood fence around the patio provided a beautiful backdrop for the family pictures we always make on our beach trips, and the wooden bench was a great feature for sitting and for picture-taking. We did not bring a pet, but the fenced area on the side of the home was a great space for safely storing the 8 bikes we brought with us. Several of us biked up to Thomas Donuts in Laguna Beach a few mornings. Others transported their bikes to Gayle's Trails in Conservation Park or Frank Brown Park, both which are conveniently located to Dog Dayze. Even our 4-year-old grandson could ride his small bike safely on the trails. One of our favorite things about this house was it's easy access to the beach. The walk took about 2 minutes or less. It was close to Beach Access 89 and 90. 90 has a designated crosswalk across Front Beach Road, and the boardwalk down to the beach has fewer steps, so it is easier for older folks, wagons, etc. Just be sure to ask your beach service to set up your chairs near 90 if you plan to use that one. The house is located close to Publix and Winn Dixie, and we discovered a well-stocked Dollar Store just a short distance away at the end of Kelly Drive on Back Beach Road. My husband loved not having to keep up with house keys, and all of the adults could unlock the door with our personal code. Since I am the one who chooses the home and communicates with the owner, I cannot say enough about the responsiveness of Clarissa. She responded almost immediately every time I asked a question, and I asked several! We feel very fortunate to have rented a vacation home from someone who always seemed to be interested in assuring that we had a great experience!
