Great place to stay

  • 5 of 5
Condo has a great location right on the beach with an excellent view. She provides everything you need for the beach which was very helpful since this was our first time visiting any beach. There was plenty of room for the four of us to relax comfortably. We really enjoyed ourselves and would definitely stay again.

Wonderful Vacation Condo

  • 5 of 5
Excellent value! Clean, comfortable, quiet, older condo, with views of the gulf from balcony outside of living area and master bedroom. A glimpse of the bay can be seen as you leave out the front door. We will definitely stay here again.

Great Vacation Rental - more than we imagined

  • 5 of 5
We rented this condo based on the reviews of past users. And I must say we were happy we listened to the positive reviews, otherwise we might have missed out on this little gem.

The Continental is an older building, built with a purpose - great location for those that want to spend time on the beach, without breaking the bank. There aren't many ammenities to the grounds: BBQ is a rust bucket, the pool is small and can handle only one family at a time. If you want to use the pool, I would recommend the mornings. But what makes the Continental great is the location, it is a very short walking distance to the beach. And because the Continental is small, the beach in front is not as crowded as the larger complexes. All the other renters for the week we were there seemed to be families too which wa comforting (nothing worse than ending up at a party complex).

As for the unit, we were pleasently surprised,(the pictures do not do it justice). The unit is very clean, the bedrooms are good sized and the beds are very comfortable. This unit only has one full bathroom, but that was sufficient for our family of four. Everything we needed was in the unit, an added bonus was the beach chairs, tent and toys. Also, a good selection of VHS tapes for kids to watch in their bedroom.

The view from this condo is priceless. On the third floor you can see beautiful sunrises, and the moon and stars over the Gulf at night. If you walk out the front door you can see the fireworks down the island or the ones lit from Claytons. We spent most of our mornings drinking coffee on the balcony watching the early birds jog and walk on the beach.

We really had a great time on our vacation. The price of the unit allowed us to use our money on other things like snorkeling, dining and other activities.

This unit is great, however, I would not reccomend it to those with very small children or those that have difficulty walking stairs. The Continental does not have elevators and carrying stuff up three flights of stairs can be trying for even those without health problems.

Lastly, a big thank to the owner, Katherine. She was very easy to work with and answered all my questions prior to our trip. We look forward to staying at her place again next year.

"Non Smoking Unit" also means "No Smoking On Patio

"Non Smoking Unit" also means "No Smoking On Patio
  • 3 of 5
The only reason this review gets a "3 Average" is because the description on the website that says "non smoking unit" is VERY misleading. My boyfriend, Dad and myself are all smokers. We did smoke on the patio but never in the condo whatsoever. I received an email stating we would not be getting our deposit back because it was obvious that someone smoked in the condo & that that they were in the process of removing the smoke from the unit. I contacted the owner because I didn't feel this was right since we never did smoke inside only on patio. She said a non smoking unit means even on the patio that you cannot smoke. IF I would have known this I would have never rented it as we are smokers. We ended up getting $75 of the $100 back which is better than nothing but I still don't feel we were done right. As far as the condo itself it had everything you need and more. It was very nice and clean. It overlooks the beach and just a short walk to it. The only other downfall is the stairs (no elevator) but once you get everything upstairs it isn't too bad. I even recommended the condo to my Brother ( before I knew about our deposit & Non smoking Patio) in which he has already booked and will be going next month. I would love to rent this condo again but with what happened I don't see that we will be.

Owner's Response: I am sorry for the misunderstanding; too many people are extremely sensitive to smoke and when I state A Non-Smoking Unit that is exactly what I mean. My patio balcony is part of my unit and it's unavoidable to go anywhere except into the condo from the balcony. Had my housekeeper not been able to smell smoke in the unit, this whole situation could have been avoided.

great place!

This condo is wonderful! It was VERY close to the beach and very very clean. If a problem arises, Catherine is very prompt and attentive to your concerns and needs. There is a large utility closet filled with wonderful beach supplies so theres no need to buy them or pack umbrellas, beach canopy or toys. We didnt want to leave and cant wait to return!
