We had a fantastic family vacation . 4 generations !!!!! 14 in all ! The condo was spacious with plenty of room to get away if needed ? We all felt very comfortable and at home immediately . We had 5 children, 10 and under so we spent a lot of time going back and forth from the beach to the pool it was very easy to do ! Everyone from Steve the chair guy to the bartenders at the pool bar were all very friendly and helpful ! We would absolutely recommend and come again ! Thank you for sharing your vacation home !
Outstanding property!!!! Owners are extremely nice and very helpful. Perfect Condo for a family reunion at one of the world's most beautiful beaches.
Beautiful condo with plenty of room for everyone and a spectacular view. I can't say enough good things about this condo. Can't wait to go back!!!!
This condo is perfect for large families or for a group of close friends. It accommodates young children well. The finishes are high quality and the layout is simple and open. The views of the gulf from the balcony are exceptional. We plan to book this condo again in the future!
This condo is very nicely laid out and furnished and has great views. My family and I really enjoyed our stay here. Large spacious areas both inside and out and a huge kitchen. The one area I would improve is the beach access (nothing to do with the condo itself) as my parents are older and the extra steps around the pool area was a slight issue for them.
We have a large family of 8 adults and 1 grandchild; so even though we were proud to be called the Griswold's the first day we were going down to the beach, a place with bunk beds and pull out couches doesn't work for us! This spacious condo made family togetherness extremely enjoyable but allowed everyone their own private space as well. The open living/kitchen floor plan made hanging out so easy that we opted to cook in several times instead of going out every night. The oversized balcony offered a great view of pools, beach, and the fireworks. The Ocean Club Restaurant at the entrance offered a family friendly atmosphere with live music and delicious food. We never felt cramped and this condo will be able house us comfortably as our family continues to grow!!!
