About Don Estep or Barb Delgrosso

Don & I bought Sunset Cove in 2004 for an investment and a vacation home. We currently live in The Villages, FL which is a couple of hours from 'the beach nest' but certainly close enough for us to get there to inspect, fix and enjoy. We are both retired. We moved to Florida in 1990 for the beautiful weather and have not regretted it one day. it's gorgeous down here. Don is originally from WV and I am a Jersey girl. We both have 4 adult children & lots of grandkids. We have renovated the condo putting in all new appliances and some nice fresh paint & flooring. We are proud of our place and enjoy sharing it with our guests.

Why Don Estep or Barb Delgrosso chose Florida Central Gulf Coast

We love Sunset Beach. It is like a mini-Key West. We are surrounded by beach cottages, lattice, tropical landscaping,coconut trees & beautiful flowers. It's an adorable area and the best part is that we are on the skinniest part of the little strip with one side being the bay and the other side the beach.

What makes this condo unique

We really like coming to our place because it is so convenient. You pull right up in front of the door (how nice is that). It makes it so easy. One of the rituals we always do when we get here, is walk down to Caddy's on the Beach for breakfast. We just love looking out on the water while eating our breakfast and drinking our morning coffee. And the best thing is that a few minutes up the street, there are other restaurants too, a ton of activities & shops and whatever you need or want. Great location. Come to 'the nest'.

Cozy Getaway Near the Sun & Sand

  • 4 of 5

The Nest in Sunset Cove had adorable decor that certainly gives you the feeling of staying in a beach retreat. Everything was clean, up-to-date and worth the price. All of the linens and kitchen equipment were available. The owners were very helpful in getting us setup and providing details on our arrangements.

Access to the beach was a simple trek across the parking lot. The owners graciously supply renters with chairs, towels, fishing equipment, toys, and all the goodies you may need for spending days on the beach. If you're not a beachcomber, the pool area is welcoming and a great place to relax in the Florida sun. We've stayed in the complex before and have never had a bad experience.

Few helpful hints to anyone staying at the Nest:

*Be sure to visit the Ka'Tiki bar which is a short walk down the street

*Take your own toilet paper, paper towels & trash bags for the apartment

*Publix is a great food market that's a short drive away

*Witnessing at least one sunset on the beach is a must!

Wonderful stay!

  • 5 of 5

Myself and my husband enjoyed our stay here very much! Everyone in the condo complex was so nice and welcoming! The condo itself was very nice, clean, and we loved the additional bonuses like the beach chairs with umbrellas and fishing pole. My husband caught a couple small fish off the pier at the back of the condo. We loved waking up and having our coffee by the picnic tables at the pier. Everything was very relaxing and nice! We really enjoyed the pool, it was very clean and the water temp was just perfect! We will recommend this condo to anyone and would love to come back. The owners were very easy to deal with and answered all of my e-mails in a very timely fashion.

Overall we had such a wonderful time here and hope to come back soon!

Quiet, friendly condo

  • 4 of 5

This unit is exactly as it is pictured.. The condo itself is very quiet, very clean. It could however use one small upgrade, recovery of upholstery on the couch, but it was quite comfortable even pulled out into a bed. The bedroom is very cute and comfortable and the bathroom is very very clean. There is nothing lacking in the kitchen and it is very easy to go in and cook, and everything in the kitchen is in very good shape. The outside of the condo area is kept up very well and all the neighbors are very very friendly. The beach access is wonderful and the area feels very safe. Definitely would rent again if I were to return to the area.

Great Location, Fully Equipped

  • 5 of 5

The complex doesn't look like much at first but gets better and better as you settle in. Parking at your door, friendly pool out front, charming classic Florida inlet at the back. Comfy mattress and quiet privacy in the bedroom at the back of this condo makes it feel large. We like to prepare our own healthy meals and the kitchen has lots of prep counter space and more pots and pans than you'll need. Excellent wifi connection and fully adjustable a/c. Best for last --- a short walk across the narrow street to endless gorgeous beaches, dolphins, and dramatic sunsets. What's not to like?? (If we had to make a suggestion, it would be to add a teapot for Canadian visitors. Not a deal breaker, though --- this place is as advertised and more...)

bernardston, mass

just as advertised!!

  • 4 of 5

everything was exactly as described from location -across QUIET street from the BEAUTIFUL gulf beaches with the intracoastal on the back side with pier on property; to amenities - all the beach going items you need, high-def tv's in all rooms, and all necessary cooking implements; to convenience - park directly in front of first floor door, LOTS of restaurants/bars/eateries just minutes away, and all on a quiet side street less than a 1/2 mile from gulf blvd!!

the reason for 4 stars were beyond the control of the owners of "beach nest": pool maintenance left something to be desired (both lack of surface skimming and the quite noticeable "ring" around the pool made use questionable); and the gas grill being locked up and available for use with payment of fee/use (there were free of charge charcoal grills). Better pool maintenance and free gas grill use would lead to a five star review.

The owners, Barb and Don were both a pleasure to work with and the rental couldn't have gone smoother with both a last=minute discount and our security deposit refunded within 72 hours after rental.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your wonderful response. We love it at the "nest" too. Regarding the pool maintenance, gosh, our maintenance man is "the best". he stays right at the property and everyone raves about how he keeps the property so spic and span! I can only guess that he was called away on an emergency & some plant debris made the ring since the pool is surrounded by plants. I have never seen it anything less than clean. Regarding the barbecue, we do charge for the gas grill, just $1 for 2 people. It is a bother though, I agree but it does prevent misuse and overuse especially when the snowbirds are there (every unit is occupied) and the grill is constantly going. Do come back again! Barb
