Guestbook comments from the owner

Only two of us in condo but big enough for a family with everything you need for a beach holiday. The kitchen was well equipped for those wishing to eat in. Beach chairs, boogie boards and play equipment for the little ones all available. It was nice to sit on the balcony which was shaded most of the day with a cool breeze. Ideal for families with children using the pool all day long. Although the pool closes at dusk this rule was generally ignored so be warned it can get a little noisy until midnight. The location itself was quiet but only 1.5 miles to Public and 5 miles to Johns Pass

The balcony view itself is worth the rental!

  • 5 of 5

Great place to stay. The location is wonderful...It's close to everything you need, and you couldn't be closer to the beach unless you pitched a tent on it. Parking is easy, building access is easy yet safe, carts are provided for transferring your belongings quickly to your space, all the outdoor areas are clean and well maintained. The condo itself is large and well set up, there's plenty of space for your stuff, and they provide pretty much everything you could need. As soon as you walk in though you'll be drawn to the balcony and may never leave... the view is beautiful, and that along with the ocean breeze and the sound of the waves is pretty tough to walk away from. The pool and hot tub are clean and a real nice way to spend a few hours a day. They have grills in the common area too, also clean and well maintained. The beach itself is all you could ask for, and makes for some great walks, and beautiful sunsets. The owner, Rick, is easy to work with and quick to respond to any of your questions. I would definitely stay here again!

We love this place!

  • 5 of 5

This location and condo is beautiful. We were not disappointed. The condo looks just like the pictures. Nicely equipped for all of our needs. When we are not on the beach, our favorite spot is sitting on the balcony looking out at the waves. We will be back!

Dated condo

  • 3 of 5

While the condo complex was nicely maintained, the condo itself was dated and badly needed new mattresses, pillows, and maintenance on all sliding and folding doors. Literally wrestled with the door from living room to balcony every single time. Other doors were hard to work as well. Half of the bulbs in the overhead kitchen fixture were not working. Area was great, pool nice, beach front.

Owner's Response: I don't know what the problem was with the mattress. If you read many of the reviews they state how comfortable the beds are. Pillows she is correct and after checking with the property manager the cleaners had for some reason put old pillows on the beds. We have since disposed of those pillows. The complex remodeled all units several years ago and installed hurricane resistant windows and doors in all units. The doors are heavy because of this but should pose no problem to anyone. This was explained to the guest. Kitchen bulbs have been replaced.

Well kept and clean, loved the view and easy access to the beach.

  • 4 of 5

The condo was very nice, looks like some updates are being worked on. We had everything we needed to make our stay easy. Had some issues on our end during booking but Rick was great to work with and very prompt in answering our questions. If you're looking for a family friendly, quiet location, I'd highly recommend the area. Great restaurants are nearby in either direction. I look forward to my next trip and would definitely stay here again!

Clean & Roomy

  • 4 of 5

This is a very roomy 2 bedroom condo. It is a little dated but I came to see the ocean not spend a lot of time in the condo. The views from the balcony were exceptional , the ocean in front of you and the inter coastal waterway to the right. It was pretty clean with nice tile floors in the main living space. We had a great time and plan to go back again.

Beautiful location, Friendly owner, easy access

  • 5 of 5

The condo was as advertised, beachfront access, pool and a fantastic view! We were lucky to see a sea turtle nest just out the gate to the beach. The condo is spacious, comfortable and had a huge kitchen. Fast wifi and a wonderful porch overlooking the pool and beachfront. Just minutes from ice cream, food and shopping. You'll be glad you stayed at this location.
