Great vacation

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay. The condo was clean and comfortable. The view of the beach was wonderful. Enjoyed the quiet and relaxed atmosphere. The only suggestion that I would make is there should be a ceiling fan in the guest bedroom. Also never could get the tv remotes in living room to work.

Another great visit!

  • 5 of 5

We are repeat customers and will be back again. The condo is very comfortable and has most everything you need for the week. I'll second a previous review in noting that the ice maker doesn't work so you'll need to use the old fashioned cube trays and we couldn't figure out the ironing board either. However, watching dolphins from the balcony, the comfortable unit, the low density building, and a very responsive owner offset these very minor issues. Can't wait for next year!

Loved it!

  • 5 of 5

This was our 3rd time staying in this unit and it has been wonderful every time. It's our top pick if we're staying in Perdido Key. John is super easy to work with and we've never had any issues!

Comfortable and convenient

  • 5 of 5

We love Perdido Key, especially the Sandy Key complex, because it is not as crowded as others. This condo is very comfortable and clean. It had almost everything we needed. The only complaints (I hate to say the word "complain" because really, the condo was very satisfactory and we enjoyed it--would stay there again) are the ice maker doesn't work (there's not one), so you need to buy ice. Also, we had all kinds of trouble with the ironing board. When it finally opened, we couldn't get it closed back. Hopefully the cleaning crew knew a secret that we didn't. Other than those minor details, perfect place. Wonderful view, comfortable king-sized bed, a very nice place to stay. Much more affordable than some we checked into.

Room 737 Review

  • 4 of 5

The property was clean and homey feeling. The beds were comfortable to sleep in, although the pillows in the master bedroom need to be replaced with new ones. The refrigerator's ice maker and filtered water was broken, so we were making ice the entire week. It would be nice to have a lounger on the patio. Other than those items, the stay was lovely.
