Home away from home
No place like home does not apply here. This property was immaculate and made us feel at home. The kitchen is well equipped, the view is exceptional, the bed is comfortable and the unit is quiet.
Good restaurants are plentiful and close and there are activities and sightseeing opportunities for all interests.

Thanks for your response. We love to hear feedback about the condo. We try and keep the condo in great shape and clean. We take pride in this. The condo is sitting right on the beach and has a great view. We are also located within walking distance of some great eating places! Our favorite thing to do on the beach is to enjoy the great seafood.
Just what I needed
We came during a weekend that was nestled between busier weekends in the area and it was delightful. The building is older, but this unit was really cute, clean, and comfortable. There was some building renovations happening next door which made some moments sipping coffee on the balcony not so quiet, but it wasn’t really a big deal. A lot of it was painting, so that helped keep the noise down. There were always chairs at the pool, which was nice and clean, and you can have your feet in the Gulf within minutes!! (There are chair/umbrella rentals available). The kitchen was well stocked, and there were plenty of towels and toilet paper for a 3 night stay. We walked to Bahama Bob’s, Bill’s on the Beach, souvenir shops- you could also easily walk to the Hangout, and many other places if you’re up for it. Everything you need is near by. There’s security on premises, as well as police cruising the beach, so it feels very safe. We were two 40-something women and felt perfectly safe walking anywhere at night. David and Jessica are super nice and helpful. Compared to rates of other condos in the area, this is a great deal if you don’t mind the outside of the building needing a little facelift. Thanks for sharing it with us! I hope to be back!
Needs a new update!
Not at all what I expected!! The condo was dirty and smelled of cigarettes! Would never book there again!
Thanks for your response. I will have to clarify a few things. First our cleaner got into a car accidennt and could not clean the condo before you arrived. I called you about that so you knew it might not be cleaned on time. She got there about an 1 hour after you left. So the unit was dirty, but not representative of its normal condition. There was no smoke smell in the unit. We do not allow smoking and the cleaner confirmed no smoke smell in the unit when she arrived finally to clean it. You called me before she got there and complained about a smoke smell. Without her being there ahead of time to confirm the smoke smell and your compliants I agreed to give you a full refund, which I did immediately. But there was no smoke smell as confirmed by my cleaner.
Location was awesome! Walking distance to all the local attractions and restaurants! Condo was fine, does need to be updated. Only issue we had was the slider door was so hard to open and close so we couldn’t enjoy the sound of the waves or sit and relax on the balcony. Overall we would go back!
I had a great time! Really hated to leave.
Southern Sands is a nice property, the only downfall was not having washer/dryer in unit. I really didn't like having to use my credit card to launder in a property laundry room.
Cosmetically- needs some work. Wallpaper pealing, doors have wood peeling off, couch older, chairs are for looks but not relaxing.
Functionality- Amazing! Right on beach, overlooks the pool and beach. Super close walk and rentable and reasonable chairs and umbrella to rent. Super close to several restaurants, sites, and activities. The layout of condo is perfect. Windows in every room. Feels homey instead of sterile. Close to elevator and laundry. Luggage carts on main floor. Adequate parking. It also had 2 fans, extra linens, ironing board and iron, stocked kitchen with older utensils.
I would recommend this condo for its functionality. I can overlook the minor asthetics and somewhat outdated furnishings. Twin beds are not super comfy but adequate. Jetted tub does not work which is a bummer. Suppose to be TV's in every room but wasn't in the 2nd bedroom. It's has a VHS player ..........
With all that said, I still would rent again. Location, Location, Location!!!! So if you don't care about furnishing and outdated fixtures and pealing wallpaper and wood door cracked and chipping then this is the place for you!
