Guest Reviews

Great house! by Diane M. 08/13/2017
My family of six thoroughly enjoyed our mid-August stay at the S.S. Minnow. We arrived very late, and the whole house was lit up and welcoming, just waiting for us! The house was clean, the pool was wonderful, and it's just a short walk (or drive) to the beach. Going in mid-August gave us huge sections of private beach in the mornings. Good restaurants (Goatfeathers, Pecan Jack's, Don Pedro's) and shopping are nearby in this small, non-commercialized beach town. And if you're game for a little drive, you can do the commercial stuff at Destin or Panama City Beach, or enjoy the other small beach towns in between. It was a great, relaxing vacation.
Our family loves staying at SS Minnow! by Vicki M. 06/10/2017
The house is always clean and in great condition. Property management team texts us to make sure we have everything we need. The kids love the pool and it is just a short walk to the beach. We are already looking forward to next year's trip!
Perfect Vacation Home by Jana L. 06/18/2016
We have stayed at the SS Minnow for two years in a row for our summer vacation. We absolutely love this place and it's perfect for our family of five. I'm sure we will continue to rent every year, if available. The house is always spotless, as is the pool. The house is beautiful and laid out well. It's close to so many great places to eat and about a one minute walk to a great ice cream stand. Super quick to walk to the beach, which is not overly crowded since there aren't any huge complexes around here. We couldn't be more pleased. Thanks again!
What a great vacation! by Chris M. 06/11/2016
What a great vacation! It was our first time staying in Santa Rosa and was just perfect. The condo fit our family very well. We loved the pool being there as well. We will definitely be back!
Clean and perfect for a family! Great area to stay! by Jennifer F. 05/28/2016
We stayed at the S.S. Minnow with our family including my 11 month old son, and 3 other friends. The house is very clean and within walking distance to the beach and a couple local restaurants. The pool was private and very nice as well. Nada with Dune Realty was my primary contact and she was very responsive and friendly. Check in and check out were very smooth processes. The Santa Rosa Beach area is slower paced and quieter than some of the surrounding areas but not far away from anywhere we wanted to go which we loved! I would definitely recommend this home and stay again!
The house was great for our group, especially since we had my 11 month old with us and they provided a crib! by Jennifer F. 05/28/2016
The house was great for our group, especially since we had my 11 month old with us and they provided a crib! It was clean with only a few minor issues in one of the upstairs bathrooms (loose towel bar, broken toilet paper holder and the shower head is virtually unusable as it has no pressure). The house was close to the beach which was a plus! Would definitely recommend and stay again!
Great house, great location. by Brandon B. 05/24/2016
Great house, great location. highly recommended.
Great deal by Jason A. 08/26/2015
We thoroughly enjoyed this house. Kids loved the private pool. Short walk to the beach. Great people to work with.
Great family home by Elizabeth S. 08/14/2015
This was a family friendly home with a nice pool and an easy 4 minute walk to the beach. Great area with an ice-cream stand 3 minutes away, kids loved it too! Will definitely come back next year.
Great Family House by Byron D. 06/08/2015
This home is great for a family vacation. Small children amenities are provided including a crib and Pack-N-Play. The SS Minnow is spacious and the pool was nice during nap time for the baby. The Rental Company was very easy to work with and responsive for any questions or needs. The four minute walk to the beach is easy for children and the house is located on a quiet street with easy access to 30A. The Rental Company even notified us that the house was ready to occupy early which is a first for our family.
Family Loves SS Minnow by Vicki M. 06/06/2015
Our family has stayed at SS Minnow 2 years in a row & we absolutely love both the house & the Santa Rosa Beach area. It is a very easy walk to the beach, great design to allow both togetherness & privacy, a pool for those times you need a little time away from the waves & sand. The rental company was very nice to work with & notified us the minute the house was available on the day of our arrival. It is very well maintained. We can't wait to go back!
Thanks again for handling everything so well. by David S 04/04/2015
Thanks again for handling everything so well. My family and I had an amazing time. Love the location. How it's on a quiet street yet so close to beach, towns, biking and restaurants. Perfect!
Most Wonderful Stay at SS Minnow! by David 03/28/2015
We couldn't be happier with our stay at SS Minnow. From the easy process of working with the rental company and payment, to service provided while on our stay. It was second to none.

This was our first time staying at a vacation rental property and we'll never stay in any other type of property again. The SS Minnow was clean and very spacious for our family of four. We all had room to spread out. The bedrooms were big, the living space was spacious and well appointed. The pool was awesome. Having heat in late March was a must. The location was perfect. Only a short 5min walk to the quiet beautiful beach. This is a public beach, but never got crowded even during springs break. We were also very close to shops, restaurants and a great bike trail which winded all along 30A to many quaint towns.

Again, a top notch property, great rental service and the location couldn't be beat!
Great Place to Be by Marissa 03/14/2015
House is nestled on a quiet road, with very easy walking access to the beach (under 5 minutes with beach gear and taking your time). The area was very quiet and peaceful with not a lot of traffic or noise. The driveway has enough space to park 3-4 cars easily. There is a pool and two charcoal grills. We didn't use either with it being March. The master bedroom has a terrific bathroom with a huge walk in closet and direct access to a covered porch facing the ocean. There are also two other sizable rooms for sleeping, one is geared towards children, and another which could hold another couple. We had plenty of amenities provided and appreciated (soaps, shampoos, dish liquid, etc.). The kitchen was sizable and everything worked great. Everything was clean, and well kept.

Because we were on vacation the house made our days that much more relaxing. The real gem of this property is the location. Outside of taking nice daily beach walks before exploring the total area, your only a few minutes from whatever you need. Santa Rosa is almost directly in the middle of everything! We drove 30A every day, and exploring each area was highly enjoyable. U.S. 98 is a typical highway in Florida, but 30A is a great road to travel. It was very nice to be almost equidistant from Destin proper and the 30A towns.

Within walking distance of the house is Goatfeathers (great seafood), a beach equipment rental shop, and a handful of boutiques. Parking is a breeze and you could easily get by using your bike.

As for the beach itself, very clean, not too crowded, life guard generally on duty, and everything you could expect from the ocean, crystal clear water, with soft sugar sand.

All in all, we couldn't have asked for a better vacation or a rental property and will be coming back next year!!
We arrived on Saturday night and were very happy with what we saw. by Julissa7664 03/24/2013
We arrived on Saturday night and were very happy with what we saw. 5 adults/4 kids and the house was very comfortable for all of us. Super clean and updated. The washer and dryer were very convenient. Having a generous size refrigerator, deep sink and dishwasher was a plus. The kids retreat was a very nice size. The master bedroom has a great balcony. We enjoyed the open concept of the kitchen/living room area. The distance from the beach was another great advantage. We were a 2 minute walk to the white sand beach. Lifeguards on duty, restrooms, outdoor shower access and a covered picnic pavilion made for a great day at the beach. The parking area was great and the heated pool was a must have in March. We had a problem with the pool not heating a few times that week but they had someone out there shortly after we called every time. There is a charcoal grill next to the pool which is great. Loved the neighborhood/ 30A area. Lots of shops/restaurants near by but somehow doesn't feel totally touristy. Walmart close by. We had a great time at this house and look forward to returning.
The house was perfect for us and our 4 year old, but could've handled more. by surferwelder 09/11/2012
The house was perfect for us and our 4 year old, but could've handled more. We loved the community and being able to walk to the beach. Once at the beach, we walked a little ways to the west and had the beach to ourselves. Our daughter chased the birds to her heart's content, and there wasn't anyone around to restrict her. GoatFeathers on the corner was great, and their seafood market was convenient. We enjoyed the private pool and the natural landscaping gave it great privacy. Have been recommending it to friends and family. Thank you so much for allowing us to share your home.
We stayed at the SS Minnow for a week over Thanksgiving 2011, with my husband and 2 children. by UVA All the Way 12/13/2011
We stayed at the SS Minnow for a week over Thanksgiving 2011, with my husband and 2 children. Home was like new and very well kept. Good view from Master Bedroom deck but not living room deck. Very nice pool area, plenty of parking. New TV's were in the Master and Living Room for the week we arrived which were an added bonus. Short walk to the beach and close to restaurants. We especially liked "Fire" and "Stinky's". Highly recommend, we will be back!
My family enjoyed a great beach vacation at the SS Minow this past August. by Rob 03/22/2011
My family enjoyed a great beach vacation at the SS Minow this past August. The house and grounds were beautiful. The Minnow was as spotlessly clean and as tastfully decorated as shown on the owner's website. Since we had young children with us, it was great to have a pool on site for variety when they didn't want to take the 2 minute walk to the gorgeous white sand beach. Having the Goatfeathers restaurant within a short walk from the house was very convenient. We also loved finding many great shpos and places to eat at in all of the nearby towns along 30-A. We especially liked Bud and Alley's, the Red Bar, and the Great Southern cafe. There were plenty of activities that we enjoyed such as golf, charter boat fishing, kayaks, bicycles, kids' rides at Pier Park, and shopping. We were also abIe to take advantage of the stunning beach sunrise for an incedible professional family picture that we could never get at home. I would recommend a stay at the SS Minnow to anyone I know. We are already planning our return trip for next year and are bringing additional family members with us. We can't wait to come back.
We had a great time at the SS Minnow by Anonymous 03/11/2011
Even planning on coming back again this summer. We loved the private swimming pool and walking distance to the beach, which was fabulous. We also could walk to some great restaurants and shopping. We loved swimming and listening to the ocean at night. Home was modern and clean. I would definately recommend the S.S.Minnow
