September 2016 - Our first time using Home Away and didn't know what to expect. We were totally pleased with the condo and the view of the Gulf. The condo was very clean and tidy. It had basically every thing you need to make you feel at home. there was even Beach chairs and umbrellas to use at beach which made it nice not having to bring ours. Bill the owner was awesome to work with and very responsive. The building was secure!
There was a couple of things that wasn't a show stopper but felt i needed to mention. During the week in september we were there, they had construction going on, on the building we were at. luckily it was on the side and back of the building from us. It was noisy at times but nothing we couldn't handle. Also, the construction people held up the elevators when we were out one day and there was no other way into the building. I tried calling the emergency number provided to us in our room but no one answered and there was no voice mail option. We were stuck out of the building for a little while until we were able to get them to let elevators down. I kind of wish we had notice of the construction on the building prior to our trip so we could have been prepared.
The view of the gulf is awesome from the balcony. Nice to relax and watch the birds and dolphins. The beach in front of the condo is not easy to get to. You have to trek through water to get to it bu its great for shell hunting but not for laying out. We loaded up car and drove about 1/2 mile to beach access area for a better beach experience. Which we didn't mind.. parking was good this time of year but may be a little tricky in busier times.
Overall we were please and enjoyed our stay . We plan to do it again..
This place was awesome!!! We had the best time and will return. Hidden paradise we would call it!! The view was outstanding. Perfect location and very relaxing.
The owner was very good with communication and we had no problems. Thanks Bill for a great week!
This great little efficiency apartment has everything you need for a relaxing time away from home. The condo has a great view of the sunset and you high enough to see the sunrise if your an early riser. The owner was good with communication and we had no problems. It was a superb week!
This property had everything we needed from pool noodles to a wine cork screw. It was the perfect getaway for me and my best friend! The view was spectacular and the beach was a short distance away. We didn't need a car for the whole week which was nice. The trolley took us wherever we needed to go. So glad someone told us that the trolley goes to the airport...that saved us $50 in taxi fees!! Enjoy!
My husband and I have stayed in this unit previously 2 years ago and then tried a different location last year. This unit beat the other one hands down! The owner has always been gracious, accommodating, and provided everything we would ever need in the unit! Normally we are cautious when reading a unit has an "ocean view" but this one literally does! We can't say enough about our stay there and will definitely be visiting again! Two years ago we found all kinds of sand dollars on the beach; this year, we witnessed the starfish invasion! When we would leave the beach, there was never a lack of great restaurants and places to browse! Did not want to leave this paradise! Thanks Bill, for a great stay!
Our Spring Break week was fabulous staying in this condo. We will be back next year! We were traveling with our 16 yr old son and next year we will bring the 21 yr old, also. It might be a tight squeeze, but with an air mattress, we can make it work.
The view from the balcony was unbeatable, we watched the sunset nearly every evening. The condo was nicely equipped and outfitted with everything we could need for the week - coffee maker, stove/oven, dishwasher, beach chairs, abundant dresser and closet space. The property was well-maintained and had noticeable security with manpower and cameras.
Our dog was welcomed and spent most of his week sleeping in the sun on the balcony. Directly across the street is a strip mall that has several types of restaurants, pizzeria/deli, ice cream and a few stores, including CVS Pharmacy and a marina. Also the trolley stops in front of that strip mall. Only about a mile away is a Publix grocery store. The wi-fi was a strong connection with no interruption of service. We had a small issue with the lock mechanism on the door for the unit and the owner responded to our voice mail immediately and had someone over to look at it within a couple of hours - though we felt secure enough that we didn't have a problem leaving and going to the beach or pool even knowing that the unit was not locked.
This condo is located in a slower paced, more quiet and less populated part of the island, several miles away from the hustle and bustle of the more touristy Times Square area. There was always room for us to spread out whether on the soft sands of the beach or at the pool. The furnishings were nothing top-end, about what you might expect at a beach cottage, but more than adequately met our needs.
