"Over the years we have stayed at many units at Vanderbilt Palms. The location is great and this unit is very clean and by far the the most complete and tastefully decorated of any where we have stayed. Vanderbilt Palms, as a whole, has improved over the last few years with improved maintenance and appearance. The owners are a delight and very responsive to any problems that may pop up. We are looking forward to our next visit." Richard Fekete

Home away from home for 9 seasons now!

  • 5 of 5

Just keeps getting better! The rooftop pool overlooking the bay is amazing. The beach is one block away and restaurants are everywhere. Bernice and Steve are gracious hosts. Condo is always spotless and has everything you need for a relaxing carefree getaway: beach chairs, beach towels and umbrella, 2 TV's, music, Internet, cable, washer/dryer, Bosch dishwasher...

They introduce newcomers so there are no strangers at Vanderbilt Palms. I know I am not alone in this as many of us have made new friends here.

You just can't help getting younger! I LOVE IT!

The Great Escape from New England

  • 5 of 5

This is my little piece of heaven; my February beach hideaway for 5 years and growing. One is immediately embraced with the best owners, from making sure you have everything you need, to their inclusive way of life. The unit is fully furnished; gourmet kitchen, light, comfortable, with a glorious view of the bay; the magnificent lights along the coast, and one block to the beach with hidden walking paths . Perfect in every respect; diverse group of folks who return every year (who have become friends), even a pool on the roof over looking the city!

Wonderful location, clean place and lovely view. Bernice and Steve are very gracious hosts.

  • 5 of 5

We were greeted by Bernice and Steve upon entering. They showed us the amenities. The rooftop pool and hot tub were well maintained. The unit was clean, well stocked and had everything we needed for our wonderful week long stay.

The location of the building is so very convenient. We enjoyed beautiful sunsets every evening after our short walk to the beach. The waterfront Lighthouse Restaurant down the road serves a great grouper Reuben! We also enjoyed beachside drinks at the Turtle Club Restaurant a short distance away. Bike riding the local roads was a real pleasure and made visiting the local Malls like Mercato easily accessible.

Bernice and Steve could not have been more attentive to any requests and take a lot of pride in their unit.

We would highly recommend this unit. Have fun. We certainly did!

Comfortable Convenient Condo on Vanderbilt Beach

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed at this lovely condo for six wonderful weeks. It is just steps to the beautiful Vanderbilt Beach, with its breath-taking sunsets and white sand. The landlord maintains a clean and updated condo, which makes it feel like a vacation. We found this condo so convenient to Mercado, Seagate's Waterside Shops, Fifth Avenue, and all of the wonderful places to eat on Vanderbilt Beach. We recommend this to singles or couples who like beauty, comfort, and convenience!
