What makes this apartment unique

The location of the apartment is truly amazing - living on the beach & ocean, set amongst the coconut palms - simply heaven. Nevertheless - The little island's Publix, Bars and Restaurants are just a couple of minutes walk away to cater for all you desire. Enjoy the best of both worlds!

Paradise

  • 5 of 5

We arrived after dark and in the morning when I stepped out of the sliding glass doors onto the sand and I thought that I had entered paradise. Compared to NE Ohio, it is. Everything is exactly as described in the listing and the previous reviews. The "likes" by our group were the bikes, paddle board, the location on the beach and near a very nice grocery, easy parking, and lots of chairs inside and out. As stated in other reviews, Claudia is quick to respond to any questions or concerns. The kitchen is well equipped and small but large enough for vacation and to prepare meals. We ate all our breakfasts and lunches in and a couple of dinners. The only "want" that was expressed was a dishwasher. Honestly, I didn't mind and I'm not sure I would sacrifice the space in the kitchen area. Overall, it's an easy place to stay and very comfortable.

I wish I was there right now.

Perfection!

  • 5 of 5

Our family stayed here for Thanksgiving and we had the best time!! Everything about the place was perfect. The pictures do not do it justice. It is much bigger than it appears! And, the owners were so thoughtful and eager to please. We will definitely be returning!

Very charming with incredible beachfront

  • 5 of 5

Very pleasant beach apartment, all descriptions on the website are accurate, it is the lower half of a house. The beach (which comes right up to your sliding patio door) is gorgeous, all beautiful soft white sand. The property is very nicely landscaped with palm trees and bushes, and you can step down a small seawall set of steps to the main beach. Perfect view of the sunsets from the provided comfortable outdoor furniture. Plenty of beach towels thoughtfully provided as well as access to beach bikes and kayak and paddle board. Nick and Claudia and children live upstairs and were very helpful and responsive to any questions we had. The facility was spotlessly clean upon checkin. The supermarket across the street is a two-minute walk and makes getting any supplies very easy.

Wonderful Beach Enviroment Vacation

  • 5 of 5

My family and I had a wonderful time relaxing on our vacation at this vacation rental. Not only was the property clean, but it had everything we needed. Having access to use the Kayak, and paddleboard was great. It was so convienient also to have a grocery (publix) store only a 3 minute walk away. I can't wait to take come back for another vacation.

Serene and relaxing

  • 5 of 5

To sum it up quickly, this was the perfect beach house for me and my family. The location of Nick and Claudia's house was spectacular and couldn't have allowed for a better time. We were able to walk right out of the house and our feet were in the sand and two second later we were in the warm gulf waters swimming with the Dolphins. Definitely a memory we won't forget.

The area was quiet and so serene. My wife fell asleep in the hammock for hours as I paddled up the coast in the SUP Board they have to borrow. That is have to say was a work out in itself.

At the end of the day it was great to walk down the beach and watch the sunset by the pier and grab a drink/food at a local restaurant.

Thank you Nick and Claudia for letting us stay at your home, it was definitely a pleasure and in our memories.
