Sitting beachfront in Carrabelle, Florida is the Heavenly Hideaway; a newly renovated oasis with an air of openness and luxurious furnishings. Co-owners and sisters Mimi and Mai Vo made the switch from long term renting to short term and are not going back anytime soon! Using HostGPO’s discount on West Elm contract grade furniture, they have created a getaway for all types of guests! They supply a high chair and changing table for big families and a bar for adult couples looking for an escape from the chaos that is daily life. Whether guests are looking to spend time sunbathing at the heated pool & sandy beach or go fishing, the Heavenly Hideaway will fit every type of guests needs.
