Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you so much for sharing your lovely condo. We had a wonderful vacation. Your condo was perfect for our stay with the extra care you provided not going unnoticed. We were a day late in arriving due to an ice storm in Cape Breton, but when we did arrive, that was quickly forgotten. We treated your home as we would our own, and hopefully everything will be to your satisfaction when we leave.

As Comfortable as Home

  • 5 of 5

Location, location, location! Conveniently located within walking distance of restaurants, shops and a grocery store. A beach bar and grill is also located adjacent to the condo towers for those that enjoy pub type food while taking in the ambience of the Gulf of Mexico. There is not much that can top the the view from the balcony either during the day or as the sun sets over the ocean.

The condo is exceptionally well maintained and clean. The bathroom and bedroom supplies/linens are excellent. The kitchen is well equipped with all the amenities and a great array of small appliances.

What we really enjoyed is the fact you are have no need to go out shopping for items the condo doesn't have.....get your provisions and you are set to go.

Thank you Jack and Chris and for excellent accommodations and responsiveness to the very few requests we had over our 3 month stay.

Great apartment exactly as advertised

  • 5 of 5

I am currently sitting on the balcony writing this review knowing that tomorrow my husband and I will be on our way back to the UK and wanted to let the owners and anyone out there looking to book this apartment how this Condo exceeded our expectations. It is spacious, very clean, and comfortable: with a spectacular view from 3 sides - especially off the balcony. We spent most evenings sitting and eating on the balcony which has a beautiful view in the day (spotted 3 pods of dolphins) and at night on two occasions nature’s magnificent light show

The kitchen is full of good quality appliances and everything you need except a tea pot (our gift to the next English couple staying here!)

There are plenty of towels for the bathrooms and the beach and the washer and dryer in the unit is a definite bonus. I personally found the apartment well organised and tastefully furnished.

Many thanks to the owners for letting us stay in their lovely apartment and to the cleaners who keep the apartment spotless.

We hope to stay here again when we next visit Florida.

A TERRIFIC Home Away From Home!!

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our 6 week stay @ Ocean Sands. Our only regret was that it passed by way too quickly!!! Taking in the magnificent ocean vista, beautiful sunsets and marine life from the sheltered balcony became a favourite daily pastime. The condo was very nicely appointed and provided us with all of the comforts of home. We found it very clean and well provisioned for our extended stay. The location was great with the grocery store, shopping and a number of restaurants all within walking distance and others just a short drive away. Jack and Chris were perfect hosts and went above and beyond in ensuring our stay was enjoyable. Through interaction during our 6 weeks, they have become friends. We would definitely recommend this property to a friend or relative ... providing they aren't interested in the same time slot as us?!

Very relaxing stay!

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful condo that was exactly as described and view of the gulf and sunsets from the beach or blacony were amazing. Very quiet beach in front of condo. Walking distance to restaurants, grocery store & pharmacy. We enjoyed Lisa's restaurant (especially banana's foster french toast & crab mac & cheese) but all food good. Daiquiri shak right across the streeet with good shrimp appetizer, not impressed with daiquiri's. Brown boxer good food and fun to play pool/darts. Owner's great to work with as well as rental agency. No problems and had a very relaxing stay. Kudos to grounds keepers/maintenance, they do a great job! Great place for adults, wouldn't really recommend for families with children (pool rules & quiet complex) , My teenage son wouldn't have enjoyed it as much as we did.

Our Stay in Ocean Sands Condo

  • 4 of 5

Our stay at your condo was very enjoyable. Everything in your advertising was accurate; and in fact had much more than what was described in the ad. After the first day, we felt at home. The bed was especially comfortable. Of course the view from the patio was outstanding.

The manager provided very good service. The day we arrived, the refrigerator was not working. I called the office and a repair man arrived within a few hours.

I would recommend this property to my family and frirnds.

The carpet at the entrance to the master bedroom was very dirty; but other than that the condo was clean, comfortable and well equipped and totally organized.

Owner's Response: We appreciate the nice comments, which recognize our efforts to satisfy our guests with “more than expected” in their home-away-from-home during their vacation. We have a high quality maintenance contract, which guarantees prompt service for any issues, such as the refrigerator mentioned above. As for the dirty carpet, once we heard about that, we arranged for a special cleaning. As part of our ongoing improvements, we plan to replace all the carpeting in October during our annual visit.

This condo exceeded our expectations

  • 5 of 5

This condo exceeded our expectations - and we had high expectations. It is spacious, clean, comfortable with a spectacular view from 3 sides - especially off the balcony. The kitchen is full of everything you need to cook like you are at home, including small appliances (toaster oven, panini press, hand beater just to name a few). Lots of towels for the bathrooms. And the most comfortable king size bed I have ever slept in! Washer and dryer in the unit is a definite bonus! Lots of great restaurants within walking distance. Great shopping in the area! We have already booked for next year!
