This was our first trip to the Gulf side and the first time staying in this condo. The condo was absolutely beautiful as shown in the pictures. There was more than enough room for myself, my husband, my daughter, her husband and my two grandchildren. I spent every morning sitting on the balcony drinking my coffee while watching the para sailors, wave runners, boats and periodically dolphins swimming by. We spent the day at the beach which was not crowded but very relaxing, at the pool or at John's Pass which is within walking distance shopping, going to restaurants, we took a dolphin watch charter and saw many dolphins, we also went to Alligator Adventure which my grandkid's loved! At the end of our days we would return to the balcony to watch the beautiful sunsets. The only negative was not having a washer & dryer in the room. Although having them on the same floor was very convenient the problem was not having a coin machine in the laundry room itself which would have made using the facilities a little bit easier. Overall best vacation we've had!! Thank you Carolyn for always responding to me with any questions I had and we would definitely love to come back!
