The perfect vacation condo

  • 5 of 5
This condo was the perfect place to spend a week as a family with a 3 and 4 year old. The gulf view was amazing. It sits on an amazing stretch of beach with powdery white sand. The balcony was the perfect place to hang out during naps and when the children went to bed. We loved being so close to the beach and always having chairs set up and reserved for us. The kids loved the splash pad and many pools to choose from. The lazy river was a favorite -especially at night when it was colorfully lit up.
The condo had everything we needed in the kitchen. We loved the multiple sleeping areas- the kids slept much better in different rooms. The washer and dryer were so nice to have right in the condo. This made packing easier.
The condo was so beautifully decorated. We were in beach paradise here. I love that walking on the beach you could walk east for a quiet walk on undeveloped/park beach or walk west to nightlife, restaurants and shops. I am so happy that we were able to stay here.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for the generous review. I'm so happy that you and your family had such a great time. We love walking on the undeveloped/park beach or walking in the other direction to The Boardwalk for lunch or dinner, it's one of my favorite things. Thank you. Marcy

Everything was perfect! The description and photos are spot on. This condo was the exact remedy for us on our vacation. Flat screen TV's with Direct TV, washer and dryer in unit, lots of room so everyone to spread out. Several pools to choose from and the view is the best at the Resort if not on the entire Island. You can not go wrong with this condo!!!

Loved the View!!

  • 5 of 5
What a wonderful stay we had at this spectacular condo right on the beach! One of the most amazing things was to relax on the balcony while drinking our morning coffee just watching the dolphins. Everyday we saw these majestic creatures.

The condo was very clean and nicely decorated. The beds were very comfortable and we enjoyed the new kitchen appliances.

There wasn't a thing we would have changed about our stay and we hope that good fortune will have us staying at this condo. Thank you very much for opening your home for may family memories to be made!

WONDERFUL CONDO!

  • 5 of 5
Marcy:

I just wanted to let you know that we really enjoyed your condo. I found it to be professionally decorated, clean and very bright and sunny inside! The pools were just as you stated nice and warm, lazy river awesome (except the waterfall pool at the Ramada is a little on the chilly side). We especially enjoyed the Seablaster dolphin cruise and the parasailing across the street behind Fudpuckers. The view and the location is worth EVERY penny! I would definitely like to come back. Therefore, I highly recommend Gulf Front 501.
