Our family had a wonderful time at Big Blue. Weather was beautiful and the condo was very comfortable! Loved that we were close to anything we needed. After reading some of the other entries in this guest book we wanted to add that we thought the beach was too sandy and the water was too salty! (haha) Other than that, no complaints! We enjoyed out stay and will definitely be back! Thanks to David at A1 for all his help!

This was a wonderful place to call home for a week and the perfect setting for our family reunion. Thank you for all the accommodation and amenities, they were first rate. Our family recommends Squigleys, Brits and the Deck House!

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Big Blue. The house is very well appointed and comfortable. The fact that its just steps away from the beach is a huge bonus. Some highlights were Britts Donuts, The Tikki Bar, Fat Pelican, a trip to Southport, lunch at Provisions and our own scavenger hunt around the island was huge fun. A great time was had by al!

We had a wonderful time! Were from Alabama and usually vacation at the Gulf but were pleasantly surprised by your beaches. I still love our sugar white sands but your waters are so wonderful and refreshing! This house is amazing! Its beautiful and comfortable. We didnt want for anything, thanks for thinking of families. I recommend Britts Donuts, Squigleys and Hang Ten Grill.

First time staying at Big Blue and loved everything about the house and the location. The owner thinks of everything, has great kitchen appliances and the house is beautifully decorated. We loved being close to the board walk, steps away from the beach, and the lake. Its a great house for entertaining and relaxing, plenty of decks to enjoy the sunrise and the sunset.
