About Marjorie Philippe

Hello I have been coming to Florida ever since I was a child . My Parents retired in this area from the Chicago area 40 years ago . I visited them as often as I could. I purchased this condo so we would have a wonderful place for our family to vacation and visit my parents. I chose this unit for it's location, and size. as we stay here for one to two months a year I also wanted it located in a quieter part of the building , with easy access to the stairs. and elevator. Over the years we have totally redone our unit, sometimes with a professional decorator , and sometimes just plain hard work. I do hope you enjoy our efforts and take care of our home. I tried to keep comfort in mind.

I am a RN oncology nurse, I lived in the Chicago area, my husband and myself retired to Fairfield Glade Tn. a planed community with mostly retied people from all over the USA and beyond. Thank you for listening .

Marjorie Philippe purchased this condo in 1995

Spacious Unit Right on the Beach

  • 5 of 5

The unit is a spacious three bedroom 2 bathroom unit with a well stocked kitchen (every utensil and appliance that you need is there) and nice televisions in all the rooms. Not ocean front but has a huge balcony that wraps around the south side of the building to provide an ocean view. It also means your room is not directly above the pool deck which can have a lot of activity on it. Another great aspect of this room is the two master suites. We traveled with grandma and grandpa and they loved having their own private room with a bathroom. The other bonus to this room- it is on the first floor right next to the stair well. There is one elevator that services the entire resort so being able to run up and down was very convenient.

Absolutely love the pool deck with direct beach access. Chris is a private contractor that rents wooden beach chairs with cushions and umbrellas that he places every morning. I though this service was worth every penny as you have plenty of towels, toys and drinks to carry down every day. Being able to lay down on a comfy chair in the shade was luxurious. There was an ice cream truck that pulled right up to the pool every day at 3:45 and the kids just loved it. Perfect time for a cold sugary snack after swimming for hours.

Gorgeous ocean with gentle rolling waves, clear water and lots of cool wildlife. We saw dolphins, sting ray and hunted for seashells. The resort has a private pier which was an incredible bonus and a first for me. There is a second pier about a mile and a half away which made for a nice morning run on the beach without getting lost.

We checked out Smuggler's Cove mini golf and had a great time. We went late night on a week day and there were still people playing so I could just imagine how busy it would be on a weekend or earlier in the evening. The only restaurant we ate at was Osaka take out- delicious Thai food. All our other meals we cooked in the room, it was just so convenient. Our other day trip was The Florida Aquarium in Tampa. It was a 41 minute drive and we had a great time. Worth the trip.

Others have raved and I have to agree that the front desk staff is just great. So knowledgable and ready to help you with anything you may need. Our entire experience was outstanding from booking the room with Marjorie to checking out this morning. We plan on coming back next summer.

Will rent again

  • 4 of 5

We had a great stay here. Large space for our family, 6 adults. Living space comfortable and big enough for all of us to hang out. Slept good nice mattresses.

Beach towels were provided and beach chairs which was a huge plus. Everything was very clean, nice staff. Beach and pool are clean and not crowded. We would definitely go back.

Wonderful Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely stay in this unit at the Sand Dollar Resort. We had 6 people in our party ranging in age from 18 months to 86. My 18 month old loved all the toys in the closet. There were a lot of toys for the sand as well as toys to play with inside. This resort is also very handicapped accessible. My Grandma uses a walker and was easily able to get around. Also, the pool had a chair lift, which was so nice, as my Grandma is not able to get in and out of the pool on her own. The unit had plenty of space for all of us, was clean, comfortable, and couldn't be closer to the beach and pool. Overall, we had just a wonderful vacation. Thank you!

Nice location but needs a deep clean

  • 3 of 5

The complex is nice and right on the beach. The unit layout and amount of space are great. The condo was "tidy" but is very much in need of a deep cleaning. There was a lot of dust on most every flat surface.

The bed sheets were clean but definitely on the older side as the fitted sheet elastic had seen better days and didn't stay on the bed well. The comforters badly need to be cleaned or replaced.

Being able to walk right down to the beach and listen to the waves at night while sitting on the balcony was wonderful.

Owner's Response: I hope you told them about the dust at the front desk they would of sent a cleaning crew right up. They also would of made sure you were happy with the sheets. I wish you would of called or emailed me at the time I would of taken care of these matters right away I can't fix it for you after the fact but I am sending your complaints to the management I always hope anyone would make me aware immediately I want everyone to have a great vacation and I will take care of any issues immediately.
