Prepare to be thoroughly spoiled at our beachfront condo at Colony Reef 2307! Between the breathtaking view of the ocean from our balcony and all the fun ways to relax at this condo community including an indoor heated pool and an outside oceanside pool, you are about to have the best vacation of your life!<br/><br/>First let's talk about the balcony, because we predict that's where you'll be spending a lot of your time! It's nothing like that narrow strip of cement-and-rail you may be used to at hotels. This is a full outdoor room, with views in two directions and room for a table and chairs with space to spare. Look out over the magnificent oceanside swimming pool and beautifully landscaped grounds and you will see the fabulous wild dunes, a strip of pure white beach, and the sparkling Atlantic! You'll also smell that fresh sea breeze and hear the low murmur of the crashing waves. What a lovely way to wake up each morning . . . and go to sleep to each night.<br/><br/>From the balcony you enter the living room of Colony Reef 2307, and here again, the first thing you may notice is the sheer space. This is a nice-sized room, with plenty of super-comfortable seating, a large LCD TV with DVD player and VCR, and a ceiling fan. One of the couches converts to sleep 2 people, should you wish. (And what a view of the sunrise those lucky folks will have! You may just have to use the sofa sleeper yourself one night to get a panoramic view of the dawn.) <br/><br/>Just beyond the living room is the kitchen, with a long low breakfast bar for informal dining and a convenient way to keep the cook involved in the conversation. You will love our kitchen. The space is economical, yet it has absolutely everything you could ask for, from all major and minor appliances to a full set of cookware, dishes, and utensils. There's even a little laundry room tucked back behind the kitchen, with a full washer and dryer at your disposal. <br/><br/>The dining area is fun and bright, with a beach-casual décor. Our glass-topped oval table is just the right size for playing board games, by the way -- and it's a good place to set up the laptop and use our free wireless Internet to update your Facebook status ("Saw dolphins in the surf this morning!"). In fact, the table usually becomes Command Central around here, so you might just have to eat out on the balcony. What a shame!<br/><br/>Getting a great night's sleep is so important to your vacation that you're going to love the bedrooms here at Colony Reef 2307. The master bedroom contains a queen-sized bed, with balcony access from the floor-to-ceiling sliding glass door, a TV, plenty of storage space, and an en-suite master bathroom. It will become your haven of peace and slumber after all those busy days!<br/><br/>The second bedroom offers king bed and a TV, and the third is our Crow's Nest, with 2 stationary twin beds. The kids will love the idea of sleeping here!<br/><br/>All of the linens, pillows, and blankets are provided for these beds, as are the towel sets for our two full bathrooms. No making an emergency run to Wal-Mart to buy an extra pillow; you'll have everything you need right at Colony Reef 2307.<br/><br/>Our condo is located on the third floor of the building, which has elevator service. Colony Reef is a fun and vibrant condo complex with outdoor and heated indoor swimming pools, a fitness room, sauna, hot tub, kids' playground, and both racquetball and tennis courts. There is always something new to try! <br/><br/>Beach access is just a few yards from your door, via a lovely zigzag walkway over the natural dunes. You may enjoy this walk almost as much as the destination! But when you reach those sugary sands and see the rolling waves, you know you've arrived. Located between Crescent and St. Augustine beaches, our strip of coastline is wonderfully uncrowded and just perfect for all activities, from sunbathing to surfing, castle-building to kite-flying. <br/><br/>Colony Reef 2307 has everything you need to create an unforgettable vacation: comfort, excitement, and beauty.
My name is Steve Milo and I stay in Vacation Rental Homes when I travel both domestically and abroad. I own several vacation rental homes and listen carefully to our guests and their feedback and then opened my company Vacation Rental Pros in 2006! Our greatest compliment is when our guests refer our web site to their friends and relatives. AND, now Vacation Rental Pros is managing over 825 properties in Ft Myers Beach, Orlando, St Augustine Beach, Daytona Beach, Palm Coast and Ponte Vedra Beach. Our guests and their great 'word of mouth' have helped us expand to over 825+ vacation rentals. We booked over 15,000 rentals and received over 5,000 guest reviews in 2014.
Overall, we were very impressed by this property. We were scheduled to stay in Destin, but with the gulf crisis, we had to find an alternative location for three families. Each of rented through VacationRentalPros. Each of us had our expectactions met. The property provided a relaxing location with good resort amenities. Cinnamon Beach is a place to rest and have fun. There aren't the nearby activities of Destin, but there are wonderful things just a short drive away. We enjoyed our stay and we enjoyed unit 121. The owner did a outstanding job decorating and providing everything in this rental unit. The bedrooms have comfortable beds.<br/><br/>We had two disappointments with the unit. First, the light on the stove didn't work which made cooking later at night harder to see. Not impossible, but just a small challenge. The second issue was the advertised outdoor grills on the balcony. One grill doesn't work. The other grill had weeks, maybe months, maybe years of "junk" caked on the grill plate. A quick trip to the store for grill cleaner and about 15 minutes of scrubbing made the grill ready for use. It did work well once it was cleaned.
The maintenance man is cranky and argumentative. Need to have pest control service checked. We had two huge roaches in the kitchen area. Other than that - it was perfect!
Our condo was simply amazing. Huge, beautiful and very clean. Everyone had their own space plus plenty of room to share. I would definitely stay here again and highly recommend it to anyone.
We have stayed at many condos and I believe this one had the most beautiful furnishings of all...Lots & lots of beautiful dishes. Not your basic white. Silverware was even the best quality.... Only disappointment was the balcony furniture. Only a table with 2 chairs. There was a double lounger but it was cloth and was wet most of the time.. The other table was warped and some junk that needed to be removed... An electric grill was a plus... We plan to stay here again...Being on the second floor was very convenient just going down the stairs to our car. Hardly even used the elevator...
My family and I had a wonderful time at the condo. It was beautifully decorated and very clean. The management was very helpful. I would definitely recommend staying in Cinnamon Beach.
