We had an incredible stay here. Everything was great, the home was very well stocked with linens and anything you need for cooking. The location is great. Taking the neighborhood trail makes it very easy to get to the beach. Wry fun week for my family!

Wonderful cozy home !!! Relaxing on the porch by the fountain in the pond was so therapeutic! A+++ accommodations ♥️ Love the area!!! Close to shops and Restaurants, Publix, BEACHES!!!! Wonderful area and we really have no complaints!!! The 6-seater golf cart was WONDERFUL! We used it most of the time! I'd definitely stay here again🌞🏝️☀️🏖️🐚

We had a wonderfully peaceful vacation. Our family of 7 enjoyed staying at The Kraken. The community and house had everything we needed plus some things we did not think about bringing. The BeachWalk staff was great at addressing any issues that came up and communicating the remedy to each issue. We will definitely come back to NatureWalk and book with BeachWalk.

The kitchen was the best outfitted area of any rental I have ever stayed in!! Thank you for that! Spacious, clean, well maintained, and a great fit for our family of 6.

We had a wonderful!!! time at the house - in fact loved every aspect of it. We all want to come back next year. You were so accommodating, and addressed any need that we might have had, and your communications were always so attentive and timely. Thanks so much for being you. The McCollum's & The Henry's.

Our family had a great time at this home. The neighborhood is very charming and the community pool was very convenient. Realize this home is about a mile or so north of the beach and a golf cart is not provided. The kitchen was not as equipped as other homes we have rented in the past and the pillows were not great. Overall, we had a wonderful week.

Everything was great and the staff was so friendly and helpful. The house had a few little issues, but they did not interfere with our time there.

We loved the house and all the amenities! Weather was pretty bad so we really enjoyed the ping pong table as a bonus! Location was excellent for the pool and the trail was an easy bike ride to beach. I would suggest maybe a mirror in the extra bedrooms since 2 rooms Share a bath and we had lots of girls House was very comfortable and loved the beachy decor!

Beach towels would be nice. Also, a non-stick skillet that actually still has non-stick coating on it. And sharp knives. A forth bike and a golf cart. A garage you can park in.

Hi- We loved our stay! Our house felt very clean and had everything we needed to cook meals in the house. We LOVED the new approach to bedding that means all linens are fresh with every stay. I have always cringed in rental houses that reuse comforters/bedspreads and only provide fresh sheets. I hope this change stays in place even after the pandemic! Our house needed a new dryer knob- we had to really squeeze the knob to get the dryer to start. My only minor complaint was how long it took to get a response form Beachwalk about questions we had before we booked- email requests never received a response, and phone calls always required a voicemail which took a full business day to get a response. It worked out in the end but I would have appreciated prompter responses so we could move forward with our booking more quickly. Overall, would definitely stay again!
