Cozy Kid-Friendly Condo

  • 5 of 5
We had a great time, and the condo had everything we needed! My three year old found books, games, puzzles, movies, and tons of sand toys! The kitchen was stocked with all the utensils needed to prepare meals at home. My son enjoyed watching people play from the balcony, as well as watching the seagulls. Easy walk from the condo's front door to the beach. We even cooked out on the grill provided below our balcony. The owners were great at getting back in touch with us if we had any questions regarding our stay. We will definitely be back!

Great condo & location!

My family & I really enjoyed our stay at this condo! It was very roomy, had everything we needed including games & puzzles for our 2 small grandkids, DVDs & books. We loved sitting on the balcony @ enjoying the breeze & sounds of the waves. The short walk to the beach & beautiful white sand & blue water was great! We took a dolphin cruise and all of us enjoyed that! The owner was very easy to work with & promptly replied to all emails & questions. We would highly recommend staying at this condo!

Best Value in Port A

  • 5 of 5
We're a group of three close friends who vacation every year in Port A. We've always stayed at a high-rise before but spotted this awesome condo located nearby. We paid less money and got an extra bedroom, close proximity with easy access to the beach, great Gulf views, gorgeous green space in the interior courtyard, an amazing pool with a deep-end perfect for aqua jogging, and a condo unit that was spacious with all the furnishings and comforts we could want. It was lovely to relax on the 2nd floor back porch watching the ocean with the wide open views of the natural landscape. The location is perfect, parking is easy, the grounds are well-maintained, and the owner was extremely responsive to special requests. We're so happy to have found our new annual vacation home in Port A.

We love Island Retreat!

  • 5 of 5
We just enjoyed our second consecutive beach vacation at Island Retreat, and we loved this condo as much as the [different] one we stayed in last year. The location can not be beat - just a boardwalk between your door and the beach. We prefer to not get in our car (or have to rent a cart) to get to and from the beach, and Island Retreat fits this bill; even our young children handle the walk well. The pool is large, clean, and just steps away. This property is well-maintained, secure, and so reasonably affordable. It's possibly the best-kept secret in Port A!

We found our condo in clean condition, providing everything we needed for our week. The mattresses and bedding are nice quality, and the air is cold, which kept us very comfortable. Flat screen TVs and DVD players in all rooms, with a kid-approved selection of movies, helped entertain us when we weren't in the water. I really appreciated the owner's personal library of books with titles appealing to all ages. It was the first thing my kids discovered when we arrived - we LOVE books! Decor is tasteful, with a serene color scheme. The kitchen is well-stocked. There is a chest full of beach toys, to which we contributed those we brought. The balcony faces east, making it ideal for enjoying coffee at sunrise while not being in direct hot sun in the late afternoons. We spent sunsets at the beach - it's the best time to find treasures at the shore.

We appreciated the owner's quick and helpful communication during the reservation process, and we definitely recommend Island Retreat #30 to anyone looking for their home away from home at Port A.

Wonderful Family Time

  • 4 of 5
We had a great time at the condo last week. It had everything we needed, and was everything we hoped it would be. The Wii was a nice surprise for the boys, and my husband and I enjoyed being able to watch movies in our room while the kids played. It was a nice break from the hours and hours we spent soaking up the sun and playing in the surf.
