Beautiful views with the perfect location. Stayed here with my wife and 2.5 year old son. Very convenient to walk out onto the secluded beach and walk back in for a short break or to make lunch under the tiki hut. Many restaurants and shopping very close. We rented an electric golf cart which made exploring the island fun and easy, would recommend it. Monique was a pleasure to work with. We will be back soon.

We loved this house and location! It was very clean. The house is very open and well equipped. However, this was the first time we spent nearly 90 percent of our time outdoors! The ocean breeze is constantly blowing and you are steps from the ocean. We usually take a break from the ocean for a couple of days while we vacation, but we just couldn’t with this house!! We loved watching the sunset each evening and making memories with our family! The Tiki Hut was amazing! Great memories made in a beautiful place!

This home is the perfect place to relax and enjoy the stunning views of the Gulf. The bed linens, towels, and kitchenwares were all high quality. The location was quiet. Compare to other rentals and you will find that the price is not unreasonable. It is well worth the money to enjoy the water and view from the first waking moment of each day until retiring to bed. Stroll to the Tiki hut at first light and witness the water changing colors as the sun rises, sit and remain dry while still being able to hear the waves crash on a rainy day under the Tiki hut, or watch a moonlit sky reflect on the water as you sit with loved ones under the hut. There is no hauling wagons or gathering the entire family for a few hours per day at the beach. Tip: Rent two weeks if at all possible...you will wish you had once you are there!

Best location on the island! Walk out the back door to a fantastic tiki hut and a few more steps and you are on a quiet section of beautiful beach. The home is modern and in great condition in a quiet neighborhood. The kitchen has everything you could need. Both gas and charcoal grills are available. Several restaurants and bars, a liquor store, fish market, convenience store and shopping are all within a short walk. The owners are nearby and available should you have questions or need anything. You won't want to leave. We will definitely be back!

The description does not do it justice. Shady Pines is a classic beach house directly on the gulf. The location could not be better. And if the sun becomes too much, the tiki hut offers shade without loss of the view. The house is clean, well appointed, and the owners take care to maintain it well. Inquiries or concerns get a quick and friendly response. The island has a nice mix of restaurants and activities. Much is within walking distance; all within biking range. We look forward to returning.

My wife and I stay at Shady Pines each year and it's the highlight of our year. It is an outstanding beach front property. We love it and look forward to it each year. There are plenty of neat restaurants on the island, but we also enjoy just hanging around the beach and the tiki hut. Bob and Monique are great hosts and we have enjoyed getting to know them over the years. It's a must for us each and every year!

Shady Pines is the perfect choice for a relaxing beach vacation. We stay at Shady Pines every year for our annual "girls week" and each year is better than the previous! The beachfront location is perfect; and the Tiki hut is a wonderful place to relax, read and enjoy the amazing sunsets over the Gulf. The owners, Monique and Bob have always been responsive to any questions we had - offering suggestions for restaurants and local attractions. The home is very comfortable and well appointed - right down to beach chairs and floats for the water! Having just returned, I am already looking forward to next years stay at Shady Pines!

This clean well appointed beach house felt like a home away from home. From the comfortable beds, well equipped kitchen and spectacular panoramic views of the gulf from inside the house . Having a tiki hut to sit under was the frosting on the cake. Best vacation ever!

This beautiful beachfront house was exactly as shown in the pictures. The owners were excellent to work with and ensured we had everything we needed to enjoy a stress-free week long vacation. The house was very clean and comfortable. It was wonderful to be just a few steps from the sand and gulf. We hope to come back soon.
