We rented this home for a three generation girls trip. While there was only three of us, we rented both levels so we wouldn't have to share the pool. The lower level actually came in handy very much for the extra fridge space and quick access to bathrooms while enjoying the pool. Some of the most amazing sunsets ever from the top deck. Wishlist would be: a squeegee to remove the setting rain water from the top deck, rug/mat in the kitchen to catch wet feet (we moved the hallway runner and was fine), larger dining table inside upper level, would love the ability to move between the floors without going outside, but that would be major construction. As you can see, my wish list is minimal. The house was beautifully appointed up and down stairs. The kitchen had all that was needed for family gourmet cooking. We loved the house so much we booked our next trip while checking out. We have found our beach home away from home and plan to make the Girls Week in Mexico Beach an annual event at Sunset House. We will look no further for perfect accommodations.

Very clean. Beautiful sunsets. Convenient to the beach. Loved the pool. One drawback was the only entrance to upstairs was the sliding door on the balcony. Inconvenient on rainy days and difficult to take dogs out to the bathroom. Dog owners and elderly would find downstairs more convenient.

During our stay, we rented both the upstairs and downstairs unit. The house is across a 2 lane hwy, but access to the beach is only a short walk. The house was spacious. We had 6 adults and 4 children and still had plenty of room! The beds in the downstairs unit were the only complaints. One was too short for any adult to sleep in without their feet hanging off the end of the bed. The other bed was lumpy and the mattress was so worn that you would literally roll to the middle of the bed. The private pool was awesome- The hot tub portion wasn't working but who needs a hot tub in the summer heat anyway, right? Service was excellent, which we needed very little of. The only problem we had was garage door codes & internet. Both issues were taken care of immediatley. Hoping to come back to Sunset House next year with the family again as we thouroughly enjoyed our trip! I need to mention that the beach in front of this house is pretty much your beach. We only saw a handful of people pass by the whole time we were there! Love it! Thank You Forgotten Coast for a wonderful, memorable vacation!

My fiance and I came down for the week of our wedding. We rented both units and two of the wedding party (along with their spouses), and my father, all stayed with us. There was plenty of room.
Cooking was a breeze in this house. The kitchens were well appointed, all the appliances worked properly, and there were grills available up and down. Most of our meals were enjoyed out on the deck. Only downfall would be the lack of dishwashers.
The Half baths upstairs and down help meet bathroom demands which are often a problem while other guests are taking showers and getting ready to go out.
The shared pool area was really awesome and saw a lot more use than expected considering how close Sunset House is to the beach. All of our wedding guest kids' came over to swim.
The house lives up to it's namesake providing incredible sunset views from the top deck. Best enjoyed while sipping frozen margaritas!
Family getaway weekend was a success at the Sunset House.

My family and I stayed at the Sunset House Memorial Weekend 2011. The two levels were great! The older folks stayed downstairs while the younger ones had the top level. The pool was a great feature for the kids to swim after a day at the beach. Our only complaint was that the amount of bath towels was low on each level (they only had 5!) and with our big group we had 7 people on each level so we had to wash towels before everyone could take their shower. The Sunset House is across the street from the beach with a trail right in front of the house. The upper level deck was the perfect place to drink coffee every morning and watch the sunrise before heading out to the beach. The beach was not crowded even on a holiday weekend! We really enjoyed our stay and are planning on coming back next year.

We rented both units of the Sunset House. We had eleven on our party that consisted of smaller children and teenagers. This was incredibly convenient. The teenagers with an escort occupied the lower portion of the house which was a blessing. The sunsets were beautiful and the children (all) enjoyed having the beach at their disposal. We could watch the children from the deck. The deck was great for taking pictures of the bay. It was breezy enough to keep the windows open (not too hot and cool enough to sleep well). Our family has fond memories of our time spent there. I highly recommend this rental.

Loved the location. It was so peaceful. Mornings on the balcony were my favorite times. It was also the perfect hangout at night for all the adults. It was close enough we could ride into Panama City for some extra fun, but everyone was always ready to get back to the house just to chill out. We rented the whole house and it was the ideal situation for our needs. The fact that the house had a private pool was what lured us in. It was so refreshing to jump in after lying out at the beach. The house needs a couple of minor repairs, but what house doesn't. We are already planning the next trip. Thanks for the fun Sunset House!
This spacious home offers great views and we loved the pool!

We loved our stayed at Sunset! The house is much larger than it appears online. Everything was clean, we had fantastic sunsets and view of the beach (from the huge upstairs balcony). The beach is a close walk by walking to 1st street (the next street over) and crossing the highway. We stayed in the upstairs unit, which has older furnishings but seems a little more spacious. Other family members stayed in the downstairs unit and it was nicely decorated. Our favorite thing about the house was the private salt water pool. It was larger than we expected and nicely landscaped. We also loved having a 2 car garage! The only thing that kept me from giving this home a five star rating for comfort, was no dishwasher in either unit (I had not planned on handwashing so many dishes on vacation), and there were no additional Tv's in the bedrooms. Overall, this is a great vacation home for families! We had two families and it was so nice to share the pool and hang out and then retreat to our units in the late evening. The mangement and staff at Forgotten Coast is a+ with customer service! We will be renting this home again, hopefully next summer!

We rented the entire Sunset House for our annual vacation to Mexico Beach. We loved everything about our stay. The house was very clean as was the private pool in our very own backyard. We loved the fact we could park in a garage and had access to a washer and dryer. We feel the best thing about the Sunset House is the beautiful view. Unobstructed and right across from the beach, we sat on the top deck on July 4th and watched the Blast on the Beach. Everyone at Forgotten Coast Property Management & Rentals, LLC that we worked with as far as booking and checking in was super friendly and ready to help with any questions. Hopefully next year, our family will get to enjoy the Sunset House again and in years to come. Great vacation for a great value! Excellent!!!
Wonderful time, excellent service, and great value

We stayed in the lower half of the house. Any concern was addressed immediately, and the entire staff was friendly and helpful. When the toilet clogged, it was fixed within two hours of calling. The same with the air filters. We were given great advice on restaurants, shelling, etc. We couldn't beat the value and location of the house.
Cleanliness was a concern. While the floors had no grit, they were not clean -- our feet were black within moments of walking on them. Both couches reaked of urine. The dishes in the cabinets were unclean -- greasy with dried fruit pulp left on them.
With the service we received at Forgotten Coast, I am sure that the cleanliness issue will be corrected upon receipt of this information.
Overall, a great vacation. We will stay with you again. If we find the next location unclean, we will notify you immediately.
