Owners, Ken and Sue are from New Jersey. Ken is a mechanical engineer, and Sue works in advertising. Ken is also accomplished guitarist, and member of a praise band, and good 'ole fun-time classic rock band in NJ...(always a guitar handy in the Casa unit for his and your use.) Ken says 'People really miss out on the best times of the rental season in April/May and September. The weather is so mild and the water so perfect. Plus the rates are so low. (2 weeks for the price of one in September)!' No impact thus far from the BP spill at all. No no-seeums! We don't believe Casa has ever charged a renter a hurricane day, or a cancellation due to a true family emergency.

The Owner purchased this condo in 2003

Enjoyed our stay at Casa del Mar. Grounds are meticulously landscaped. Pool area and beach were clean and had plenty of lounge chairs. Condo was very clean and the kitchen was well-stocked. The carpet needs shampooing though. Enjoyed my morning coffee in the sunroom looking at the gulf. Walked the beach for miles every morning. Not many restaurants or shops within walking distance. Public transportation is easily accessible and there is a free trolley from the public beach. Free wifi in the condo was appreciated. I would definitely return and highly recommend Casa del Mar.

We had a wonderful stay at Casa Del Mar. The condo was nicely furnished with everything we needed. The grounds were well maintained and the pool was inviting. The check in and out procedures were very smooth and went quickly. We enjoyed day trips to the Ringling circus and museum and the Mote Aquarium, both being within a short drive. We would definitely come back again and recommend Casa Del Mar to anyone looking for a nice relaxing vacation.

Immaculate Beach Getaway

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: May 10, 2012
  • Stayed: May 2012
Our stay at Casa del Mar was outstanding. The condo is adorable, immaculate and has plenty of space for the whole family to relax (not to mention flatscreen TVs in every room). The beach is gorgeous and the water is crystal clear. This is a great place to come and unplug, but it's also minutes from great shopping and restaurants in St. Armands Circle if you're looking for a night out.

If you forget your own beach towels you can buy them in the main office.

A great value for the experience!

The condo is beautiful, has everything necessary for a comfortable stay. Spacious and perfectly decorated. You can see the water from the sunrooom windows. Quiet property, nice pool, uncrowded beach with powder soft sand and plenty of lounge chairs! The folks at the front desk were very friendly and helpful. We even got an escorted walk to our condo one night when it was raining and dark by the security guard. The grounds are landscaped beautifully with orchids and roses. Try the grouper sandwich at the place next door.
Will definitely be back.

The Weatherwas: Wonderful - Sunny Skies and partly cloudy some days. Some Wonderful things we did: Spent [lenty of time playing on the beach. Visited friends in Westly Chapel. Went to Clearwater Aquairium to see "Winter the Dolphin." A manatee swam near us while swimming off the beach. It was awesome! Many wonderful shells. Moments & Gilmpses: We found a giant shell and gave it to our six year old who discovered a "pinchy crab" inside - it was so funny and exciting. We watched him for some time. We really hope we will be able to come back soon! We loved the beach and enjoyed our time here very much!

While grilling, one guest asked the other, "How long have you been coming to Casa del Mar?" He answered: "7 Years" The other guest asked: "Why did you choose this place?" He replied: "Because it is simply the best in the area."
