PERFECT BEACH GETAWAY FOR MY HUSBAND, MYSELF, AND OUR GERMAN SHEPHERD PUP
We were provided with everything one could need prior to our arrival, from maps, directions, restaurant suggestions, etc. Upon arrival we were stunned, everything was perfect. The Mellow Yellow was spotless, so clean and cozy. There was plenty of space to set up our gigantic dog crate, which was very important for us! There was everything you could need; new washer/dryer, dishwasher, rocking chairs on the front porch, and hammocks on the two upstairs porches! It was well represented, everything you expected is what you got plus some. Pat went out of her way to accommodate us, make us feel at home, and make us part of her beach family! It was very relaxing, I cannot wait to go back down!! We had a huge grill that was ours and shared pooled in the community, but we never actually used the pool The BEACH was too BEAUTIFUL! About a block down the road is your beach access, there is a shower and a bathroom there for your beach departure. There is also a really great guy who sets up your chairs and umbrella if you choose to rent them. I suggest YOU DO! It made everything easier having it all right there, not too mention we rented a KAYAK, best decision we made!!! The pup (a 100lb German Shepherd) went to the beach and had a ball. (dogs are allowed before 9 and after 6) We went for runs on the beach, played in the water, swam, chased birds, played fetch, dug in the sand, and socialized with some other pups. If you have a dog you can definitely appreciate this. The mornings and the evenings were my favorite part of each day. The whole family got to play together….it was awesome. It is such a privilege to have your dog allowed on the beach….SO REMEMBER TO CLEAN UP AFTER YOUR DOG!!! EVERYONE DOES! The beaches are so clean and gorgeous. Santa Rosa beach was just voted #3 most beautiful beach in the nation!
A short walk from the house is a business area that houses a coffee shop, restaurants, shops, bars, a pharmacy, etc… But we did drive the extra few miles every day to go to SeaSide Village. Our best dinners were down there, I got a fresh juice every morning from RAW N JUICY, my husband enjoyed many hotdogs from an airstream van, and we shopped at Modica Market which had everything from toilet paper to fine wines…their prepared foods were delicious.
WE LOVE THE MELLOW YELLOW … WE WILL BE RETURNING SOONER THAN LATER!!
