About Ronald Berges

Dr Ronald Berges is a native of Ovid, Colorado, but has lived and practiced medicine in Ottumwa, Iowa for 26 years. He is Medical Director of Behavioral Health Services at Mahaska Health Partnership.

Ronald Berges purchased this condo in 2015

Why Ronald Berges chose Florida Panhandle

A good friend from college introduced me to the Cape San Blas area. He owns the unit below this one. This property was attractive due to the proximity to the Gulf, the privacy, and the openness of the unit. It is perfect as a family getaway, couples retreat, and romantic hideaway. This unit was purchased from previous owner Gerald Allen and his daughter Roxanne, who has guided me in the transition to rental property owner.

What makes this condo unique

Even when the Cape is at the height of the busy summer season, it is "slow and relaxed". It's a very peaceful stretch of unspoiled, "Old Florida" sand. There are few places like this left to enjoy.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Roxanne, this was truly a lovely place to spend two weeks. Each place we've stayed over the years has had its own special charm, but yours was the most comfortable inside and the most beautiful outside. Your interior colors and furniture are so refreshing, and the cathedral ceiling and the high windows give so much light! It's been grand sitting on the deck and reading, watching the changing moods of the Gulf water, shelling, watching the dolphins that came almost every morning, watching the sun set. We wish you and your father well in renting it and for opportunities to spend quiet time here yourselves.

Relief from the chaos of everyday life!

  • 5 of 5

Antiqua Sunset is located in the perfect location on the Cape, in my opinion. If you love going to the beach to be at the beach, you'll love the location. Ron was very accommodating and easy to work with. No need to stop and check in anywhere, just drive right up and find your key in the lock box. Super convenient. We had no problems during our stay, except for Tropical Storm Cindy and she didn't stay around very long. Thanks Ron, for sharing your place at the Cape.

We absolutely loved Antiqua Sunset. You will find it spacious, well appointed, in a fabulous location and overall fantastic. We loved everything about it and enjoyed our long weekend away. The ocean walks were just excellent and the two recliners were great for resting and reading. There are no words to describe the beauty of the sunset and the quiet coffee mornings from the deck. We will be staying again soon.

nice unit. great view watching the porpoises. wifi had some problems and if you can't climb two flights of stairs you may want to pass, otherwise it was great. clean,everything worked just fine, and set up so you have privacy even though its a 4 unit building. would go back in a minute if pet friendly. all other units in the building were pet friendly.

Antiqua Sunset was serene and relaxing.

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our serene and relaxing experience in the well maintained and organized Antiqua Sunset. The owner, Ron thinks of everything and is so accommodating. The minute we arrived, we were impressed with the beautiful view, the soft warm breeze in our face and an incredible view of sunrise, sunset, and the open starlit sky complete with the sound of the crashing surf from the top of the world. We got a good night's rest and then coffee on the elevated deck with such a fabulous view. The deck gets full sun and the house is very nicely decorated, comfortable and fully furnished. The open plan is great and the beds were comfortable. The place was clean and well organized. Everything was fabulous and the local store had everything. Ron recommended the best places to eat, shop, fish and tour. It was a wonderful time for our family and we would recommend it to anyone. Thanks again Ron for the time of our lives in your nice home on one of the most beautiful, quiet family beaches in the world. White sands, relaxation and brown tans. We loved it.
