We enjoy golf, tennis, biking, swimming, beaches, shopping and dining. River Strand is the perfect location for all of these activities.

We invite you to enjoy our beautiful condo and all the amenities River Strand has to offer. You will have an amazing stay!

What makes this condo unique

This condo has an amazing view of the golf course Estuary hole #7 and water views with unique bird watching! You get the best of both worlds right in front of you! You can watch the complete play from tee off to putting in on the green. Estuary hole#7 has been named as one of the most beautiful holes on the course and many say that it is also the hardest. Between the birds and the golfers, this view is very entertaining!

Great January Escape!!

We really enjoyed this third floor condo with a beautiful view! The furnishings and decor were nice and the kitchen well equipped. The owners are very involved and checked on us several times during our stay! We had a cozy month in this condo while enjoying all that River Strand has to offer.

It's All About The Views

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I highly recommend staying in Kevin and Corrine’s condo at River Strand. What we enjoyed most were the outstanding views from their condo. We spent hours watching the golfers, as well as the abundant wildlife in the pond. Their condo was very comfortably furnished and immaculately clean. As an added bonus, they provided two bicycles to ride throughout this lovely community. I can’t say enough about Kevin and Corrine. They answered any and all questions very promptly. We are looking forward to renting their condo again.

Great Stay in a Beautiful Condo

  • 5 of 5

We liked our stay in River Strand very much. The condo is very nice and has everything you need. It has a great view over the most difficult hole of the whole golf course so it was fun to sit outside and talk about what went wrong there last time and what to try next :). The club house, restaurant and the big swimming pool are in easy walking distance, nice facilities and good service everywhere. The golf course is very good, with 27 holes and also lots of nature and wild life. We also liked the location of River Strand in terms of shopping and other activities. Corinne and Kevin are very nice hosts. We will come back and we can truly reccommend this condo and community.

Delightful stay

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this condo. Very comfortable and well equipped. View of seventh hole of golf course was beautiful and entertaining. We enjoyed many relaxing morning coffees watching golfers go by. Also found the golf affordable and challenging. Also found the property managers very responsive and helpful. Will definitely be returning. Thanks Corinne and Kevin

Lovely Condo

  • 5 of 5

The condo is lovely. The location is very central with easy access to the interstate. Beaches, shopping, and other fun activities are close by, plus the amenities that River Strand offers! The condo overlooks the 7th hole and offers views of a pond with all the antics of the wildlife and the golfers! River Strand is a very well maintained and welcoming gated community. Kevin and Corrine are the nicest people to work with! They have put a great deal of thought into making your stay (however long!) very enjoyable, providing many of the comforts of home without having to pack them. It was our pleasure to stay there while our new home was under construction.
