Sea of Joy Review by Judy M. 08/31/2019
This is a beautiful house located right on the sand on the Gulf side. The house comes very well equipped, with lots of toys games sand and beach toys. Everything you could want. The kitchen is also well-equipped. It’s a stunningly beautiful location. We saw manta rays, pelicans, crabs, and lots of fish. House is well organized with and upstairs set up for grandma and grandpa kitchen and gathering space. Kids bedrooms and parents bedrooms are downstairs.
Perfection! by Heather H. 08/25/2019
We had such an amazing stay! The house is beautiful, with plenty of room for everyone. The amenities are second to none, with plush towels, comfy beds, any kitchen tool you could need, and most importantly, plenty of beach equipment and toys! The ice maker was a huge bonus. We will definitely stay again!!
Sea of Joy Review by Elizabeth K. 08/12/2019
Our week at "Sea of Joy" was absolutely perfect! Striking sunrises and sunsets, rainbows, and a marvelous view of the gulf.
Sea of Joy Review by Judy M. 07/23/2019
Beautiful house, very well equipped, right on the sand on an uncrowded beach with warm Gulf water and pure white sand.
Sea of Joy Review by Darrell L. 06/21/2019
Sea of Joy was the perfect beach house for the week. We have rented many beach houses over the years at several different beaches. Sea of Joy was by far our favorite to date. The owners have thought of everything a visitor might need during their stay and the house is perfectly designed for a large group allowing for large gathering areas along with ample private areas to relax. The elevator makes all of the difference during your arrival and departure, not to mention the huge benefits if you have members of your party that may struggle with stairs. Beautiful sunrise from the bayside deck and stunning sunsets from the beachside decks. We look forward to the opportunity to return to Sea of Joy in the future. SeaStay and the owner make the rental process easy and are very responsive to any questions you might have. Awesome experience! Thank you!
Sea of Joy Review by Jennifer R. 06/15/2019
We've been coming the the Cape for several years and this was definitely the nicest house we've stayed in thus far. It has everything you need - appliances, cookware, baking needs, even the extras like saran wrap and laundry detergent, and all your beach needs! The elevator made it very convenient to get all our groceries up to the kitchen and helped my elderly mom move from the top floor of the house to beach more easily. The space on the beach was great - not too narrow or crowded. Our kids had room for a soccer "field" and more! Favorite house on the Cape!
Sea of Joy Review by Jason R. 06/07/2019
"Sea of Joy" exceeded our expectations. Our party of 7 found a clean, modern house with almost everything one could ever need at the beach. Everyone commented on how comfortable the beds were. The beach is wide open at this location and most of the days, we had 300 feet of beach to ourselves. We have already recommended this rental to friends and family, and can't wait to return.
New Review by Dave L. 05/25/2019
Our family of 12 enjoyed a wonderful week at Sea of Joy. Everything was very clean and good quality plus the extra beach amenities provided made our stay simplicity itself. They had the best equipped kitchen I have ever cooked in. Double ovens and two dishwashers made it all a breeze. We cooked all our meals in and never lacked for anything. The smaller LR downstairs gave our teens a place to do their video games complete with microwave and mini fridge. We ate dinner in the screened porch and later observed the awesome sunset from the upper deck. The upper deck was everyone’s favorite hangout when not on the beach. We grilled here most nights. You can also view the very active dolphins from here during the day. We sat here in the mornings and could watch our kids playing on the beach. One of the best places we have ever stayed and we are frequent visitors to the Forgotten Coast. Neither of the lots on either side are developed so you have a nice stretch of beach to yourself.
Sea of Joy is truly Amazing! by Annette G. 05/07/2019
The home and the furnishings are outstanding. So beautifully decorated and so very comfortable. The amenities are simply over the top. Everything you could possibly need or want! The layout provides the perfect space for large groups. And the location of the house is very private. The deck furnishings are just so beautiful. It is so relaxing to rest on the decks enjoying the sounds of the sea and the spectacular sunsets and sunrises. Yes, decks for both, with views of the gulf and the bay. The bedrooms are luxurious, with lovely linens. The owner and property manager are so kind and helpful. They provide everything to make your stay exceptional. Our family enjoyed every minute of our stay at Sea of Joy. The beach is steps from the house, enjoyed by both adults and children. As one family member said, everything about the house and the location is just “jaw dropping” It was absolutely a Joy for our entire family to spend our time together in this very special and beautiful home. We will treasure this memory ... Always!
Sea of Joy = Perfect Spring Break by Christina V. 04/07/2019
We had the pleasure of being the first family to stay at Sea of Joy. The house was gorgeous, well decorated, extremely clean and very comfortable....the views.....amazing!! The owners of the house went above and beyond to ensure we had everything we needed for a great vacation.
Review - Sea of Joy by Pam B. 02/27/2019
We had a wonderful stay at Sea of Joy. I would give it a 5+ star rating. The hosts were easy to work with and supplied some nice amenities to get us started! The house is brand new and absolutely beautiful!
It is decorated so well and seems the owners have thought of everything from luggage racks, a beautifully equipped kitchen,very comfortable beds, great showers, gorgeous views, games, relaxing rooms, etc. The deck space is perfect and we loved the boardwalk to the beach. The beach is close and the sand is white and the water is clear! It is the perfect spot to really relax in comfortable luxury. I would highly recommend this house!
