Like a fairy tale, can't wait to go back!

  • 5 of 5

So, first let's say my vacation started off horrible. My bird died just before we left, the plane was uber-late, and the rental car company lied to us...

So imagine what's going through my head when we pull up to this little cottage villiage/villa. I am thinking that the place will be a borken down mess, or SOMETHING.

So I pop open the door and right into heaven. Everything had a very quaint and peaceful theme, white and light blues, with seagull lamps, you name it. Also, I was suprised to find that all was clean and the most important part READY TO GO. If you are like me, you cannot fit all the myraid of little things you will need in your suitcase... things you wouldn't want or need in a hotel without a kitchen, etc. There were straws, tinfoil, plastic baggies, toilet paper, paper towels, dishsoap... you name it, everything other than food and margaritas for inside stuff. (Side note, pass it on to the next traveler, we stocked it up further before we left.)

AC worked fine, nice little LCD tv with Cable, DVD and VCR(not that we watched it much, but good for the kids while we drank and played), awesome stereo on the wall wiht great sound (yes, we used this alot), etc...

It got better, aside from a small private beach to lounge on when you don't want company, there was the large public beach like 20 feet from our back door with white sands and warm waters and a constant mesmerizing light wave! I spent about half my day lounging getting a tan, the next half swimming (and there is a cool sandbar within easy swim distance to hang out with your friends), and the nights with our friends visiting drinking and watching the sun go down.

The best part is, while we were down there, not only was it my birthday, and my 2 year anniversary with my girlfriend, but during one of our night time watches on the abandoned beach I proposed to my girlfriend with the moon in the background and fireworks going off!

I can't wait to go back on our anniversary every year!

Only qualifiers?

-Public beach is a little busy during the day on weekends (but gets quiet during the weeks and on weekend nights later).

-While this little condo was beautiful and quaint (a throwback to an old 50's villa/motel), all around it as far as you can see are giant overpriced hotels and apartments. Although this does add to the charm alot knowing that you have the only place reserved for peacefulness and not the monster that is corporate greed.

Thanks Linda for everything!

Heaven with sand at sea just steps from my door.

  • 5 of 5

This cozy cottage surpassed my expectations. I loved being able to walk out the door, and within just a few steps to be on the beach. I walked the long stretches of white sand, sharing the space with a variety of shore birds, and gathered numerous shells. The sunsets over the Gulf were a nightly treat. The cottage is well supplied with kitchen needs and linens, including beach towels. There is the choice of looking at the wonderful view from the living room, sitting on the private cement patio or the sandy area looking past the small grassy dunes to the Gulf, or going out to the water on the public beach. Great restaurants, grocery stores, library, and the Seabird Sanctuary are easily accessible either by car or the local trolley. I was so taken by this place, that I have already booked it for a month next winter. Linda is very accessible and easy to work with.

A Wonderful Week!

  • 5 of 5

The description of this property sounds almost too good to be true ... and yet it really is. Whether watching a gorgeous sunset from the front porch, walking out directly into the white sand, or relaxing in the living room while listening to the waves, we were comfortable and delighted. Linda was friendly and responsive, and the property was equipped with everything needed for a relaxing vacation. I would readily recommend this property -- and while you are there, be sure to have a wonderful meal at Guppy's.

We LOVED this!

  • 5 of 5

This little cottage was the perfect place for my husband and I on a short vacation. It was small but had everything you would need for a few days away. And, though it was older, it was clean and well-kept. The best part, of course, was the "backyard." Every morning I would walk out a few yards and there was the beach. It was a beautiful treat. The sunsets were even better, and all could be seen right from the "backyard." If we ever go down to that particular area again we will be sure to see if this place is available. Thank you, Linda, for your help and hospitality and for sharing this with us.

Awesome condo right on the beach

  • 5 of 5

This place was awesome. Very private and right on the beach!! Very different from just staying at a hotel. The house had everything we could have needed and it was close to everything. Did I mention that it's RIGHT ON THE BEACH?!? We liked how it had our own beachy area and just a few meters away was the public beach. We brought our 9 month old with us and he thoroughly enjoyed it as well. I would highly recommend staying here to anyone and I hope to return there again!! Linda was great to work with as well. I miss it already!!
