We have rented this home for the last two years. LOVE it and the location, however the ice maker was broke and we had to go buy ice several times. I know things like this can happen so hopefully it will be fixed for next renter. Also the dishwasher soap dispenser is broke. It would not open to be used during the wash of dishes so it appeared they were clean but no soap was used. There is one king bed upstairs that is rock hard and not comfy. My kids told me it was like that the year before but they just changed bedrooms. I looked on some of the reviews this year and there were several who said that one king bed is way to hard. Honestly that is the one thing that might make us try to find another house. Also the BBQ grill was rusty last year and this year needs to be replaced. Very rusty! I'm sure they will be fixing the ice maker and dish washer.- Dorothy D , Posted: 06/16/2020
Hi Dorothy - We apologize for the issues with the ice maker and dishwasher. Our Property Services team has already scheduled an appointment with the service technician to take care of the issues. Please don't ever hesitate to call us during your stay if there is anything we can do to help!- Sand 'N Sea Properties, Posted: 06/18/2020
Great views from all the decks. Easy beach access.- Tamra L , Posted: 11/27/2019
Very beautiful home but living room seating area is not comfortable. Patio /parking garage filthy, it just needs to be cleaned on a regular basis.- Madalyn R , Posted: 08/12/2019
The house is very cozy and warm, it has great access to the beach, the neighborhood is quiet and we felt secure.- Chastity P , Posted: 07/23/2019
This was a great house and location. Our family really enjoyed the experience- David B , Posted: 07/09/2019
Sea Urchin is a wonderful house with great beach location. Our family of 10 were very comfortable and we loved the accommodations. We have found our home for our yearly family getaway!- Dorothy D , Posted: 06/11/2019
Beautiful home with great deck and views of the water. Only complaint is the beds are all extra firm.- Katharine O , Posted: 04/25/2019
Good location, nice home and it has an elevator which is great for hauling ice chests, suitcases, groceries, etc. upstairs.- Katharine O , Posted: 04/25/2019
Great property! A couple of the mattresses were a little hard. A couple areas were a little dusty. But overall fabulous . We will definitely be back .- Janice /Tim T , Posted: 12/29/2018
The house is very nice and comfortable. Just be sure to check that everything is working the moment you go in. (We had no oven) Find out how to lock the doors from the inside and how to get the elevator down to ground level as we had to climb stairs and get on the elevator to take it down. The SnS team is wonderful and helpful and the service men they sent out were very nice. Normally the houses we rent from them work out great with no problems. This was, I'm sure, just a fluke. Otherwise, loved the house and great amenities.- LYDIA W , Posted: 11/12/2018
My group of seven friends rent a beach house every October. The Sea Urchin is our favorite rental in the seven years we have been having our October retreat. It is close in to restaurants & shopping, everything is clean, new & updated, & we love the elevator! This is our second year in the Sea Urchin & we plan to rent it again next year. Sand n Sea is by far the easiest rental agent to work with on the island. They are very accommodating!- Barbara C , Posted: 10/13/2018
I book a beach retreat for a group of eight every fall in Sept. or Oct. We rented the Sea Urchin in 2016 & it is our favorite rental in all of the years we have been doing this! We don't like to cook so most of us go in for dinner every night. Beachside Village is very close in to everything. We all love to walk the beach & The Sea Urchin is an extremely short walk to the beach. It is beautiful and kept up to date in every way. Sand n Sea is by far my favorite rental group to work with. We will be renting it again!- Barbara C from Houston, Posted: 07/23/2018
This is a beautiful home. It met all of our needs. It is beautifully furnished and has almost anything you would need for a week. We could have used a water hose and instructions on how to use the elevator. The kitchen was wonderful!!- Theresa R , Posted: 07/17/2018
Beautiful, comfortable home. The perfect distance from the beach with easy access. Loved the fact that we felt like we had a private beach but we were still close to town and it's activities and restaurants.- Lois D , Posted: 07/10/2018
Enjoyed Sea Urchin very much! Great family vacation!- Patti R , Posted: 08/08/2017
View is beautiful with a super easy/quick walk to the beach. House is lovely and clean with a fantastic kitchen. Only downside for us was that the mattresses are all very firm - so if you want more cushion bring something to lay on it.- Ann W , Posted: 07/21/2017
1. Shower in Master Bath very slippery. 2. No handles in shower to hold on to. 3. Construction next door detracted from overall experience for the entire week.- Ann H , Posted: 07/18/2017
Sand and Sea is excellent- Jimmy Z , Posted: 07/06/2017
The house and subdivision are well designed for the best in comfort and accessibility to the beach, walking or biking on the wide pleasant streets.- Judith W , Posted: 06/20/2017
Great house, very well maintained.- Stephen S , Posted: 05/23/2017
Celebrated our 56th wedding anniversary at this lovely home with all our children , grand children and great grand children. This property is beautifully appointed and the kitchen has everything you could possibly need. So pack your clothes, bring any beach items you might need and come on down. We had a wonderful stay and will be returning.- Leroy H , Posted: 05/21/2017
We all enjoyed our week at The Sea Urchin and were relunctant to leave. It has everything you need and more. The staff at Sand N Sea made the process easier than others I have used in the past.- Anonymous from Houston, Posted: 09/24/2016
This house is impressive! All my family was in love with this place. It had everything and such a short distance to beach. If I had to suggest anything, it would be bring an extra non-stick frying pan and iron. LOL...other than that, it was just perfect!- Anonymous R from Cypress TX, Posted: 08/03/2016
