Our Honeymoon

The home is beautiful and the surroundings are also beautiful! I love the town of Mexico Beach and will most defintely go back and take my family! The only complaints I have are the bed in the Master is too small and not comfortable and the pool needs a heater but We loved it anyway! It was so peaceful and some of the prettiest sunsets I have ever seen!

Perfect Pet friendly vacation home that has it all

First just want to thank Karmalete for welcoming us into her beautiful vacation home. Absolutely loved it there, from the spacious home, awesome landscaping, to the private pool! 5 min. Walk to the beach,friendly,safe and quiet neighborhood (except for the singing frogs across the road every night :) the Kitchen has everything you need. My kids ages 17 and 10 loved everything about your home from the pool to all the movies provided..they also rented bikes to ride to the beach daily! Was so happy to bring my fur babies too..they loved the vacation home as much as us! Thank you again Karmalete for letting us stay in your beautiful Oasis vacation home..we can't wait to come back next year!! This home is located close to everything!!

Nice Home

The home was exactly what we expected. Very clean! Nice size home. Pool area is clean & we enjoyed the evening and nights by the pool. The kitchen has everything you will need. Linens are provided, but wasn't enough towels and bath cloths. Only the master bedroom has a tv. The other two bedrooms could use TV's and one of the bedrooms doesn't have a closet or furniture to put your clothes in. Other than these few things this home was great and we would consider staying here again. Karmalette, the owner, is very nice. She is quick to respond and answered all my questions. Easy access to the beach about a minute drive. Great price, great home!

Home Owner

Owner's reply:

Tiffany - glad you enjoyed the house and the area. Had a busy year, but will check into the towel comment. The back bedroom's closet is locked as an owner's closet, but there is a white container with drawers that may have been overlooked. Thanks again.

Sun, Sand & Surf and a Sensational Stay

Loved this house. Inside beautifully decorated and a neat pool. in a nice landscaped yard. Exactly 7 blocks from beach as stated, very quick walk to one of the cleanest and prettiest beaches anywhere. We did not do any touristy things just enjoyed Mexico Beach. I too hope it remains "Forgotten" so it will stay just the way it is. Thank you Karmalete for allowing us to share your treasure.

Owner's reply:

So glad you guys enjoyed yourself. Thanks for the review!

Private pool!

House was clean and comfortable. Loved the recliners. Great being able to bring the dog. The pool was crystal clear. Starter supplies were very sparse, so bring many of your own (that may be a housekeeping issue), including bath and beach towels.

Home Owner

Owner's reply:

Thanks Linda - glad the family enjoyed themselves. Beach towels and chairs are not included, but will check on the other suggestions.

Wonderfully Amazing!!!

We had an awesome time here!!! It was just close enough to the beach that if we wanted to we could have walked (with a small child we didn't lol but we could have). It was close enough to everything we needed (ie, dollar general, the small grocery store, places to eat etc). It was even close enough (about an hrs drive) to PCB to give the kids something different to do. The house was awesome!!! It was wonderful being able to have the kids swim safely without any worry in the private pool that was accessible to us. Being able to introduce my kids to classic movies was awesome too (thanks for that KW). We totally recommend this property. It was clean and orderly when we arrived and we had no issues while there. Thank you to KW for allowing us this wonderful week of pure relaxed bliss!!! We definitely will be back!!!

Glad you guys had a good time. I always say you can do as little as you want or blow it out in that area. :)

This is a great house for pets and the backyard pool is very private. The house is very clean and well-decorated. It is also a great deal!

Connii Froehlich

Lansing, Mi


The house was awesome! The owner Karmalete was a gem and got back with me immediately always on every and any issue. We hung out at the pool most days, the pool was very clean and nice. The grounds were nicely taken care of and am sure beautiful when flowers bloom. Nice backyard for my dogs to roam and privacy fence was awesome! The area is quiet and safe. The walk to the ocean was very close and beach/sunsets were one of the prettiest I have seen. Locals at shops/restaurants were very friendly. Fighter jets flying over head from Tyndall Airforce was amazing to see as we were lounging by the pool. The cost for a week was very reasonable, you would spend more at a hotel w/out all the extras. Overall I would most definetly recommend the Oasis and would go back again. (I wish I was there now LOL)

Owner's reply:

Thanks for the pics of your cute dogs by the pool. I think they enjoyed it as well. Thanks for the review!

But for the rain

Wonderful cottage with very private pool and backyard area. Nicely furnished and very clean. Quiet neighborhood but yet close to town and beach. Would have had a perfect time except that it rained all 3 days we were there. Oh well, caught up on reading and rest that was much needed.

Home Owner

Owner's reply:

Thanks Lynn

Beautiful House to stay in. The pool was great to have when we didn't go to the beach. Mexico Beach is one of the greatest places to vacation at. We will be back next year :)

Linda and Ben Floyd


Great Get-Away

Great house for a short stay or for a longer one--well stocked kitchen, private backyard with pool. Fenced backyard which is great for pets. Short ride to beach entrances or rent golf cart. Beautiful beach and great sunsets. Friendly community. Owner is great to work with and makes everything as smooth for you as possible. House was clean and well maintained and nicely furnished. Perfect for seniors or small family. Thoroughly enjoyed our time there.

Forgotten Coast

The house is very nice, the pool is very private. Mexico Beach is beautiful place, beaches are stunning. We did have a great time on our vacation, Karmalette is one of a kind owner, and she really cares about her quests. Every question was answered. The house is well equipment with cooking utensils, movies etc. If you looking for getaway to the place where everybody has time and smile on there faces this is the place! We loved and we are coming next year!

Home Owner

Owner's reply:

Katie and Andy -so glad you got to experience a piece of the Forgotten Coast - you were delightful to work with and I hope when your family comes to the U.S. and visits my Oasis with you, they will find it equally enjoyable. Thanks for the review!

Great place to relax!

We enjoyed our family vacation at the oasis. It is a nice, clean house. Kitchen was stocked well. Very close to the beach but far away enough you can avoid the beach traffic/ noise. Mexico beach is a quiet little town & everyone was so nice & helpful. Karmalete was a gem. Very easy to work with. We want to go back next year!

You will not be disappointed

This house is lovely. Very spacious. Our family loved staying here and Karmalete is very nice to work with. It's about 15 min walk to beach but lots of parking near beach. It's not crowded, very family friendly. Grocery store and Dollar General on main highway which was very convenient and close to the house.

Nice quiet area close to beach

Spent a month here . House was as described. All the amenities. Owner great to deal with. Less than 5 minute walk to beautiful beach. Close to other beaches in area. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. Would recommend to friends if they were interested in vacationing this part of Florida.

We will be back

We stayed in this wonderful home from mid Feb thru mid March. The home was clean, well decorated and had just about everything you can need. The landscaping was beautiful and the fenced yard was enjoyed by our dogs. Though it was still a little cool while we were there my husband still enjoyed the pool. Mexico Beach is a quiet place with friendly people. The Gulf is beautiful and we walked it often both in the morning and at sunset. Karmalete was a joy to work with and readily available to answer our questions. We will be returning for two month next years so that must speak to the fact that we really liked her place.

Home Owner

Owner's reply:

You guys were equally great as tenants. Look forward to more chats and visits. Karmalete

A True Oasis

This home is truly an Oasis. We stayed here for a long weekend with our two young boys and the house is very family friendly. The floorplan is so open, yet very cozy and private enough for 2-3 couples with bedrooms on opposite sides of the house. We cooked breakfast several mornings and the kitchen is well equipped. The backyard is the perfect place for an evening cocktail by the lit swimming pool....the sky was clear enough to see some wonderful stars! The house is exceptionally, love, love that! We really enjoyed the proximity to the beach...just a short walk. We were also able to walk to Tucans, which we loved just as much as the kids. The owner was really easy to do business with which we really appreciate (providing great directions to local shops, grocery, etc and offering easy check in/out instructions). We will certainly enjoy another stay at the Oasis...hopefully sooner rather than later.

Owner Supplied Testimonials

Mary Ann & Family - NW GA - Thank you for a wonderful time. We loved the house and Mexico Beach. Thanks for being responsive and hope to visit in the future. August 1st 2013
