The views of the beach/water are completely accurate (and lovely). The upper and lower decks are perfect for morning coffee and for catching the gorgeous colors of a Gulf sunset. The décor is exactly as shown in the photographs. The home is well furnished and decorated; feels modern and stylish, but very welcoming and comfortable." - Megan
