Gulf coast beaches are the best

  • 3 of 5

The condo is in average condition. Karen, the owner, will go out of her way to insure everything is perfect. We had TV problems and the balcony furniture is in rough shape, but all is well at the beach!

Owner's Response: So sorry the good did not outweigh the bad, a cable problem I attempted to have fixed immediately but can't control. As foe the porch furniture, as you saw the cushions were there for different furniture. Mine was swapped by a guest and I did not find this until recently and feel I cannot afford to replace it for somebody else to take it again. I attempt to handle any problem immediately and have and do apologize again for the inconvenience it caused. Karen

Incredible Retreat!

  • 5 of 5

This place was an incredible get away for my family and I. Having the convenience of being so close to the beach was a beautiful luxury. Having a great place to come back to that felt like a home away from home was relaxing as well. The owner of this condo was very easy to work with and helpful to us!
