As always... an amazing stay!

  • 5 of 5

Our 3rd stay in this bright, cheery condo. Our kids love it here (ages 7, 11, 14). Unit is clean, well stocked, and the view of the Gulf is second to no one. The only bad part is when vacation is over and you have to leave. :)

Second Trip Didn't Disappoint!!

  • 5 of 5

This was the second time I've stayed in Helen's unit. My family and I enjoyed it just as much as the first time, if not more! We had everything we needed, the unit was clean and comfortable, and Helen is so easy to work with. We love the area, beach, pool and the unit. We can't wait for our next trip!

Would Definitely Stay Here Again!

  • 4 of 5

The Condo:

Clean, comfortable, well stocked with essentials such as dishes, silverware, wine glasses, blender, ect. BEAUTIFUL View of the Sandy beach, Gulf of Mexico, dolfins swimming by in the morning. Comfortably slept 6 of us. Condo even supplied beach chairs & fishing gear! Parking for 2 vehicles was not a problem.

The Area:

My daughter & I caught several fish from the beach! During our stay, we befriended a large crane (bird) who would follow us along the beach every day. The ocean water was approx. 76 degrees, & if you like collecting shells, this beach is amazing! The beach itself was so clean, & never crowded. Two restaurants within walking distance, we're amazing! They were "Crabby Bills" & "Slyce Pizza". Also, there is a retro candy & ice cream place in that same area, that should also be visited.

The Customer Service:

Great customer service. Everything from booking the condo to checking -out was streamlined & hassle free. Helen was only a phone call away if you had a question.


Would Definitely stay again! A great condo at a great value!! Hated to leave!!!

Great Girls Trip!

  • 5 of 5

We love this unit. Just enjoyed a girls trip to the beach. There were 6 of us and the unit has plenty of room for everyone. The beds are very comfortable and lots of seating in the living room. Nicely updated kitchen, even had a crock pot and blender. Helen is easy to deal with and very helpful. The grounds at this condo are well maintained and lovely.

Great place. Can't be beat.

This was a great condo. Fantastic sunsets. Roomy enough for six. And a short drive to most attractions and restaurants - some within walking distance.

Beautiful condo, right on the beach!

  • 5 of 5

Great condo, right on the beach! Very well maintained, and updated. Well appointed kitchen, with everything you can think of. Amazing balcony overlooking the beach. Building and grounds were very well kept. Pool and hot-tub area were cleaned daily. Walking distance or short drive to restaurants and other fun things to do. Very centrally located. We had an absolute great experience! Would recommend this unit to anyone. Owner was great to work with. A++ experience all the way around.
