Thank you for considering Gulf Gaze Beach House for your beach retreat. There is no better place to escape from it all and just relax. There’s just something special about being near the water. The beautiful views, the gentle breeze, and the soft sand all combine to create a tranquil and relaxing atmosphere. It is a sanctuary like no other. Fall asleep and awake to the memorizing sound of the surf. Enjoy the feel of sugar white sand between your toes. Experience the tranquility of long walks on a pristine beach. Sit in the shade of the covered deck and watch the dolphins play and the pelicans search for dinner.

Guests Book Comments:: What a beautiful view! We just loved everything about your wonderful home. The beach was beautiful. The kids loved chasing crabs. We can't wait to return to this charming, cozy home by the sea! We will surely miss looking out at the beautiful ocean every morning. Thanks for the wonderful memories! We will be back!
Guest Book Comments:: Our first visit to Gulf Gaze, and we have truly enjoyed our vacation. We hope to return next year!
My family had one of our best vacations here at the Gulf. The house was a perfect distance from the tourist traps. Speaking of traps, Kiva Dunes was a great golf course and only a mile down the road. We spent most of our time on the beach tanning, swimming, and fishing. I caught several mullet, one catfish, two blue fish, and even hooked a manta ray! We will be back!
Guest Book Comments: We planned this trip for 5 months. It was everything we had hoped for. The house was great with the covered deck and excellent view. Low traffic on the beach was ideal. Hailey celebrated her 13th birthday on the beach! This was a very special trip - our whole family spent a relaxing week together and look forward to doing it again! On our last night, the dolphins came up and performed for us. We are not ready to go home!

Overall, we had a great time. The view from the covered porch or from the great room was amazing and my favorite. The home can accommodate 8, although we only had a party of 4 so we had plenty of room.
Guests should be aware that the rental requires a bit more cleaning by the occupants than what we are used to in other rentals, but it's not onerous and we got our full cleaning deposit back. Be sure to read the rental conditions.
The owner was very pleasant and provided helpful tips on places to eat, etc.
Thanks for a great vacation!

Wonderful location RIGHT on the beach! We spent lots of time on the porch as well. With little ones there can be a lot of back and forth, so being right by the water was perfect for us.

Home is larger than the photos show. The porch is AMAZING! The kitchen is fully stocked with all cooking tools. Home is located steps from the shore on a non-crowded beach. We hope to return again. Thanks, Catherine & Wayne, for sharing your beach house with us.

The house was great. It was well furnished and maintained. Loved the porch and open kitchen/living room.
Only suggestion is empty some of the kitchen cabinets because there was very little space to store food.
We look foreward to visiting the property next year.

For the most part, our stay was excellent at Gulf Gaze. Having washer/dryer in a bedroom wasn’t where all felt they could use at all times. Bathrooms were exceptionally tiny. For the price we paid, shouldn’t have to wash and fold towels. Put us 1 1/2 hours later leaving. Proximity to the beach was amazing tho!

Stayed at GulfGaze for a week and thoroughly enjoyed our time there. The view is absolutely FABULOUS and we had a front row for the July 4th fireworks. Great upkeep of the house. Clean and tidy. We will stay again.

We had a great time at the beach house. The layout of the house worked perfectly for us. The front porch was the best thing about the house. We spent most of our time on it. The location was great. Just steps from the beach and it was not crowed in front of the house. Would highly recommend the house.
