Private Beach Space and Peaceful Gulf Waves

  • 5 of 5

This was our first waterfront beach visit after many Florida visits a little inland. Being right on the beach is the best. My wife and I spent two very pleasant weeks here. We really got lucky with the weather. Sun King is quiet, yet just off the main drag. You can easily drive a short distance to mainland shopping and attractions or just take in the easy going beach life. This little cottage has everything you need... perfect for a couple. And , yes, the sand is right out your door!

Great view and location!

  • 4 of 5

The view and beach access were excellent and exactly as described. We come for the beach/ocean, anything else is a bonus. It is convenient to eating, groceries, attractions, & shopping.

As far as items that could be improved - The bathroom was small, and tiling style and color reminiscent of the 1960's. The electrical system does not even come close to meeting the National Electrical Code with the two wire (non-grounding) outlets and a standard outlet directly above the sink in the bathroom (GFCI missing is a life safety issue). That really needs to be addressed immediately! I say that as a master electrician with over 30 years of experience.

One surprise was the portable dishwasher. It was functional but basically eliminates use of the kitchen while it is running a cycle. I mentioned those items not because it detoured us from enjoying our stay, but in the spirit of full disclosure so that someone coming strictly for the lodging would not be disappointed with their visit. Overall we were blessed with beautiful weather and had a very enjoyable time.

Owner's Response: Thanks for the review Ron and yes it is a gorgeous beachfront location! The bathroom is small and actually retro 1950 red and yellow as shown in the pictures. Thanks for the info on the outlets—I will be having an electrician in to change those out (this never even occurred to me). The portable dishwasher can be rolled to the hallway outside the bathroom (as opposed to the kitchen sink) and set up there to free up the kitchen sink/fridge area if need be. But I thought it best to provide one so dishes don’t have to be done by hand while on vacation. It is tucked away when not in use and does not interfere with anything when not needed.

Owner's Response: Hello Becky and thank you for your nice review. The outlet in the bathroom does indeed work—you just need to make sure the light switch is on lol. A simple phone call is all I ask when there’s a problem. If you had called me about this issue it wouldn’t have been one. It is my goal to make sure my guests are 100% satisfied! Look froward to having you back again! Linda Zubek, Owner

5* location

  • 5 of 5

The location is incredible. You open the apartment door, step off the little porch, and you’re in the sand. There is a large private sandy area for the six condos in the complex and just beyond that are the dunes and the ocean. From the livingroom window you can see the ocean. We watched the sunset every day. The apartment itself is not so grand. Though it is clean, it is old and getting worn. We enjoyed it very much but someone looking for a modern condo apartment with a gorgeous kitchen, might not be happy here.

On the beach.

  • 4 of 5

Excellent location right on the beach. The condo was comfortable, bright and clean. Great view of the gulf from the porch for watching the sunsets.

The only problem I had was with the stove. The large burner did not work and the burner dials were unreadable. We would consider returning in the future.

Owner's Response: Hi Jon! So glad you all enjoyed your stay—it is a great little spot right on the beach. I wish you would have told me about the burner, I would have had it repaired immediately. I will be sending someone over to look into it right away. Thanks for letting me know. Hope to see you next time! Linda Zubek, Owner
