About James G. Bendick

We've been happily married since 1989, with one (1) Daughter to carry on our heritage. Our jobs and associated line of work are exciting, as between us we cover engineering, aviation and interior design. Our long term plans are to eventually retire to the Keys with our Condo being our primary residence. As such, we are always renovating and updating our Condo to include painting and new appliances to reflect the importance of our commitment to keeping our Condo in superior condition and beautifully decorated to reflect the Keys ambiance.

James G. Bendick purchased this condo in 2007

Why James G. Bendick chose Upper Florida Keys

My Parents owned at Ocean Pointe in the 90s and after many trips there when our Daughter was in her early years, we fell in love with the Property and vowed that one day we would own there……well, in the early Summer in 2007, we followed through with our promise to each other and purchased our Condo at Ocean Pointe.

What makes this condo unique

Ocean view…..Ocean view…...Ocean View!

Spring Break

  • 5 of 5

We chose this condo based upon previous reviews. There are a lot of condos available in Ocean Pointe. If this one is available snatch it up! James was wonderful to work with. He and his wife have obviously spent time and effort in their condo. He gave many recommendations for restaurants and activities. The pool was lovely did not spend much time on the "beach". We had two couples in the bedrooms and two teenagers on the pullout couch. We didn't spend much time inside as the weather was perfect! We would definitely visit again!

Awesome condo w/an amazing view!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I have stayed at the condo complex 3 times now and Jim's condo is by far the nicest! Thank you so much for sharing your wonderful condo with us!

Dealing with Jim was very easy and he was always quick to respond to my inquires and even quicker to return our security deposit. Once we got to the condo, we found it very clean and it was exactly as the pictures show. We immediately felt at home and relaxed. Every morning we enjoyed our coffee on the balcony while watching the boats leave for their day of fishing. Each evening we enjoyed a drink on the balcony watching the sun go down and all the boats coming back in. The kitchen is equipped with everything you need from making a small breakfast to a nice dinner. We used the grills in the picnic area almost every day. They are very close/convenient to the condo and the picnic tables are nice. While my husband grilled I just soaked up the sun at the picnic table and enjoyed the beautiful flowers and palm trees. The pool is very close to their building, which makes it a very short walk to get there. The pool area is really nice, you can tell it was recently redone, as well as the hot tub. The bed was extremely comfortable; and it is nice with the balcony right there so you can see the ocean from your bed. My husband just loved the large shower in the master bath. They did a great job remodeling the bathroom. The appliances are all high end and worked great. It was nice to throw in a load of laundry while sitting on the balcony and switching it when I came back in for another cup of coffee. Very convenient! I just can't say enough about the condo as it was extremely hard to leave and face reality that we were coming back home again! Wish I was still sitting on the balcony watching the tide come in! Do not hesitate when booking this condo!

Thanks again Jim for sharing your slice of heaven with us! I can't wait to come back.

Wonderful Accommodations!

  • 5 of 5

I can not say enough about James and Julie and their condo. From the moment I requested the rental things could have not been easier. The unit is exactly as the pictures show. It was very clean and neat. There were four of us in our party and I personally think six people would be tight, but that really depends on who you are and how you travel. The grounds were nice and everyone that worked at Ocean Pointe were every friendly and helpful. James provided us with a list of recommendation that proved to be very helpful. This was just a quick trip, but we are already looking forward to returning for a longer stay. Thank you again for sharing your little slice of paradise with us!

Wonderful vacation!

  • 5 of 5

First I would like to start by saying what a pleasure it has been dealing with the owners Jim and Julie. They are kind, care about the experience you have at their place and are very prompt in answering any questions or concerns you may have.

The condo is beautiful and has been totally updated. It has all the amenities of home, the beds were comfortable and the washer and dryer was fantastic. The view from the balcony of the ocean was great and we loved seeing the sunrises (when we could get ourselves out of bed to see it!) It was close to the beach on the premises which we used everyday and the staff at the complex was very friendly. The condo was also close to all the places we love to eat at as this was our 2nd time in the Keys.

Thank you Jim and Julie for a wonderful and relaxing week at your home!

Perfect stay in the Keys

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful Thanksgiving stay at this condo. James was very attentive to us before, during and after our stay making sure everything met our expectations. We flew in late from the West Coast and were happy to see that the outside guard knew we were coming, allowed our entrance to the resort and we easily got access to the condo. The condo itself was very nice and clean with high end finishes - the master bathroom was just recently completed and very well done. I loved sitting out on the balcony each morning, watching the waves roll in, basking in the sun and reading. Our kids loved the wide variety of beach toys they discovered under one of the beds, though the beach at the property was small. You can find better beaches off property. We all loved swimming in the super large resort pool. As far as the kitchen goes, we found everything we needed. We also greatly appreciated having the use of the washer and dryer and laundry detergent. We would definitely stay here again and highly recommend it. Wish we could have stayed longer! Thanks for sharing your piece of paradise with us!

Pleasant stay

  • 5 of 5

The property is well organized, well cared for, clean and easy to stay in. There is a pool with a hot tub, important for the kids, as well as a small beach and place to play in the ocean. Parking and access was easy.

There was plenty of supplies including dishes, condiments, coffee, and etc... except there was not much toilet paper. Not even a whole roll in each bathroom, not the end of the world.

The beds were comfortable. The kitchen was not huge but functional. The bathrooms were nice and well done.

I would stay here again and would be happy to recommend it to any one.
