A very nice home in a great location! Loved being close to the beach and the wonderful shopping especially in December. I only have two suggestions. First, there needs to be some dish towels in the kitchen and some potholders. That's all we were missing. :)

We couldn't have asked for a better place! It was able to handle our whole group and never felt crowded! The wagon, beach chairs, and umbrella were a pleasant surprise also! We ended up donating our boggie-boards too. They only issue we had was our trash wasn't emptied when they told us it would be. We had 11 people for 7 days = an overflowing dumpster. Bring extra pillows or blankets if you need that sofa sleeper (couldn't find any in the closets) but leave all the kitchen supplies at home! The place is stocked like your own!! We loved the beach pavilion and the tram was helpful. I would recommend this property to anyone with a big group, it was perfect!<br/>

So glad you enjoyed your stay at Lonni's Gem! It is a super nice home with newer furniture and recent updates. The private beach cabana is close the pools even closer! There should be pillows and blankets in the closets. Sometimes people move them all over the house. Will make sure they are there! The trash is scheduled to be picked up 3 times during the week in the Summer. Not sure what happened with that but we do recommend bringing the big 30 gallon trash bags just in case the 2 cans are not enough.
