Why John Whittenberger chose Florida Panhandle

We love the beautiful beach, the wonderful sunsets and the friendly people. Sandy Key is a great family vacation at a first class resort. It maintains the 'old Florida' charm in an updated setting.

Just what we were looking for!

  • 5 of 5

John was very helpful and informative. Once we arrived we were missing some keys but John was able to get some extra keys to us quickly.

The condo was very clean and well kept with a perfect view of the beach! Beach access was very convenient and once on the beach you did not have to walk too far to set-up your chairs or get to the water. The beach here is not crowded at all and is very laid back! No seas of people or multiple rows of chairs here!

Overall we had a great experience and will be back again!

Pretty views of Gulf and Beach

  • 3 of 5

Nice 2 bedroom Condo. Not really suited for more than 4 people. Pull out couch not conducive to sleep. Building work on elevators created inconvenience. No one around to enforce rules i.e., throwing football in pool area (which hit my son in the head) and loud music by one particular group. Young children in hot tub which was filthy.

Great weekend away from home!

  • 5 of 5

The condo was really clean and in great order when we arrived and had everything we would need for our stay. The condo is right on the beach, only a short walk over the dunes, and the pool and hot tub are right by the beach as well. A walking trail is just down the street and some of us went biking as well. The porch is really nice to enjoy a glass of wine and take in the beautiful scenery. Additionally, John's directions to get into the condo, find the key, etc. were easy to follow and had no issues while there.

The Only Condo You'll Ever Need

  • 5 of 5

This is the second time my husband and I have stayed in this condo. We like it so much that we will be staying here again next September if it is available. It is very clean and comfortable. It looks like it is professionally decorated but I don't know for sure. Everything works; kitchen appliances, washer and dryer, televisions and remotes. No unpleasant surprises. John refunded our damage deposit within two weeks of our departure. We had a great view of the beach from the huge balcony. We saw tons of dolphins. This complex is very secure so we felt safe walking along the shore after dark. John is very easy to work with; organized and quick to respond to questions. I see no reason to look elsewhere for a rental. This one is perfect.
