Loved loved loved your condo! The "god so loved the world, he gave us the

beach" sign from the bathroom is my Facebook cover picture :)

If we want to book again for next summer, how early do you get booked for

the summer? We are discussing beach week 2016 plans on the way back to

Gwinnett County. I'd move down to the beach in a heartbeat if I could!

Excellent!!!!!! Could not have been any better for us

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I just completed our stay this morning at your wonderful condo. We have been to ocean gallery four times now and yours was by far the best one ever. We thoroughly enjoyed staying at your wonderful home. It was clean, well-organized and the perfect location for the two of us.

Owner's Response: We feel the same! We do our best to keep the unit updated and guest friendly. The location is tops in the resort. The ground floor is so easy in and out, and our view of the Ocean is better than what most people think, and or see in our photos. We look forward to having you back next year!

Fantastic stay!

  • 5 of 5

Loves the condo. The view from the first floor was wonderful. The guys who were at the front gate were always so helpful and friendly. Would definitely consider renting again.

Owner's Response: Thanks Susan! Our view has always been good from the first floor, however it is even BETTER SINCE THE HURRICANE!!! The hurricane last year knocked the dunes back about 12 - 15 feet which gives us a BETTER VIEW OF THE OCEAN than we already had. If you are a potential renter, concerned about the first floor view of the Ocean, don't be! The value is here! Direct oceanfront with discounted pricing. Our resort (Ocean Gallery) is known for it's upkeep and professionalism from the guard gate to the rental office and the grounds crew! Always friendly!!

Great family vacation place!

  • 5 of 5

We are a family of 5 and spent our Spring Break at this property this year. We had everything we needed! Walk out to pool and beach, comfortable beds, well equipped kitchen, laundry machines in the condo. Ocean Gallery is a nice place for families, with a heated pool at clubhouse, tennis courts, ping-pong table, sauna...It was perfect for us and the kids. Thank you for sharing your property with us!

Lovely Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Loved being able to see and hear the ocean and feel the breeze from the patio. This condo is well-maintained and comfortable with all the amenities. Close to beach walkway and a pool nearby. We loved our stay there.

Great complex and location - lousy sleep

  • 3 of 5

I have a mixed review of this condo. The complex and location were great. Right on the ocean, beautifully maintained grounds, friendly staff. The condo itself faced the ocean and was really close to the pool. Just a few steps out your door and you were on your lounge chair (of which there were many, both in sun and shade). The unit was well supplied (although beach towels would have been nice) and quite clean. However, the carpets in the bedrooms need to be replaced - they were stained and quite worn. We had to call maintenance on the first day, as the carpet in the second bedroom had started to unravel. They patched it up to address the trip hazard it presented - so now there's a bald spot where the carpet used to be.

There were a few negatives - some minor, but one major. The first minor one is the lack of a hairdryer - I know this is a first world problem and more of an annoyance than problem. This is the first time in many, many years of travelling that I've stayed somewhere that doesn't have a hairdryer (and that includes several B&B's). As I said, an annoyance - I endured my flat hair day and bought a cheapie at Walmart. However, this is a cheap convenience that you could provide for your guests. Hairdryers are bulky and hard to pack.

The second problem is the very poor lighting in the bedrooms. If you like to read in bed, bring a book light for yourself! The lamps and bulbs are pretty much useless - about as effective as nightlights. Again, a cheap fix that can make your guests' stay more enjoyable.

The biggest problem(s) (and the reason for the 3 star review) are the horrible beds in the second bedroom. There are twin beds and the mattresses on both are absolutely the worst things I've ever slept on (and I grew up quite poor, so have slept on some pretty bad beds!) Each night, instead of sleeping, I tossed, turned and cursed - and then woke up tired and cranky - not how I like to spend my vacation. I tried the extra bed in the kitchen, and the sofa, but they were equally bad. To the owners, please put your guests out of their misery and buy decent beds for the second bedroom. To future guests - if you need to use the second bedroom, think twice.

Owner's Response: Nina, I am so sorry that our hair dryer was missing for your stay with us! Someone must have accidently taken it home with them. Same thing with the beach towels. Thank you for mentioning the spot in the carpet. That is at the top our list to be replaced. As for the mattresses in the kids/guest room. This is the first ever complaint. Our unit is ideally designed for 2 adults and up to 3 kids. So the kids usually sleep in the guest room. Our boys 23 and 18, have never complained about the beds in there. The king mattress is a memory foam and it is wonderful!
