This is a great house with a nice location. We had always rented OceanFront but due to the features of this home we chose to move off of the oceanfront.

The Black pearl fit our needs perfectly. We had a large group and never felt crowded in the house. This was the first time we did the advance property hold for next year! No other house has been so perfect for us.

We enjoyed the proximity to the beach access as well as the many amenities offered by the home we rented
- Jane 6/18/2016
The house was beautiful although there was a few issues regarding maintence. They had a decent amount of amenities as far as the kitchen being stocked although beach amenities were lacking. This is the first house we have stayed in that didn't have been toys, umbrellas or boogie boards. We did upon leaving though leave our beach toys for the next family's to enjoy.

How does the pool alarm work?
Anthony, when a pool is alarmed, there is a button or switch on the wall or woodwork near all the doors that have access to the pool area, and high enough to be out of reach of children. An alarm will sound throughout the home if the door is opened without touching the button or switch first.
