Private Beach Space and Peaceful Gulf Waves

  • 5 of 5

This was our first waterfront beach visit after many Florida visits a little inland. Being right on the beach is the best. My wife and I spent two very pleasant weeks here. We really got lucky with the weather. Sun King is quiet, yet just off the main drag. You can easily drive a short distance to mainland shopping and attractions or just take in the easy going beach life. This little cottage has everything you need... perfect for a couple. And , yes, the sand is right out your door!

Amazing

  • 5 of 5

Came here for our honeymoon and we were nothing short of amazed at how close the beach was. Literally you walk out your front door into the sand. We can not WAIT to come back to this little peace of heaven on the beach. Everything you need for your beach trip is provided by Linda (beach towels, beach chairs, noodles and floats) Loved it!

The property was everything I expected the pics are accurate ......

  • 4 of 5

Overall experience was wonderful loved staying right on the beach, literally! Will rebook for sure .... couple issues .... It wasn't as clean as I would have liked it, despite what most reviewers said that it was really clean. There was grime around the sink facets, fridge door and really all doors were dirty. The floors were'nt clean either. I spent the first hour cleaning all surfaces. The unit is extremely dated but like I said none of these things would prevent me from going back! The bed is pretty comfortable (7 on a scale of 1-10) although a king would have been awesome! Would not want more than two people in this unit and can't imagine sleeping on that sofa bed!

The location is to die for, watched many sunsets while doing yoga on the beach. Spent a lot more time on the beach because it was so easy to access .... lots of beach stuff is provided by Linda ..... it truly is an awesome beach vacation.

My Wife and I enjoyed this little place.

  • 5 of 5

Great place, it is just a few steps to the beach, walk out your back door and there is the beach. Accommodations were clean and well kept. The trolley is right out front. Crabby bills was one of my favorite places to eat. We cant wait to stay here again.

Great place! Loved it!!!

  • 4 of 5

We so enjoyed our direct access to the beach. The view was awesome. We also enjoyed how quiet it was. Inside it was very quaint. We enjoyed meeting Mark and Melinda and their family in unit 2. It was a wonderful and refreshing week. Can't wait to get back for a longer stay.

stunning scenery

  • 3 of 5

this is our second review. Perhaps the first got lost (in the cloud). overall, the duplex is what we expected for something original o the area. no problem there. However, our major complaint was the boxspring and mattress. Absolutely must be replaced with something of higher quality. all rugs need to be replaced with non-skid bottoms. we didn't use the stove or oven, just the frig (which is old but works).Also, please replace or clean the inside shower curtain (moldy).
