About the property

Condo, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-6)

Enjoy this penthouse 2 bedroom, 2 bath condo with exclusive keyed elevator access. You'll love the panoramic views of the Gulf of Mexico and the Inter-coastal waterway from your 1400 square ft. roof-top patio! In this private oasis, you can lounge on the patio's chaises to soak up the rays, take in the sunsets, or gaze at the stars.

Enjoy the heated pool and walk on the miles of sandy beach just steps from the elevator. Our private fishing pier and boat dock are also available across the street on the inter-coastal waterway.

Inside the condo, you'll find everything you need to enjoy your vacation! The unit is fully equipped with kitchenware & beach toys. The master bedroom has a king bed with en-suite bathroom and 32' flat screen TV. The second bedroom contains 2 twin beds and has a 32' flat screen TV. The enormous rooftop patio is accessible through sliding doors in both bedrooms. The living room has a queen size sleeper sofa, a 46' flat screen TV, and boasts a second balcony overlooking the beach!

Another benefit of this unit (do you need another?!) is the premier covered parking space, one of the closest spots to the main lobby.

Finally, enjoy nearby dining, movie theaters, shopping, Busch Gardens (45 minutes by car), and drive to Disney World (90 Minutes away).

Please take a look at our 3 bedroom condo on the same top floor!

Easy to deal with, great views

We had a great time at the condo. The owner was very easy to work with. The condo was laid out very well and was very clean. There was an osprey nest on the patio that was neat the first day because we were able to take some great pictures. Unfortunately they prevented my wife from approaching the backside of the building for photography. We specifically rented this unit for the view so we were disappointed that we could only get beach side pictures but i guess the wildlife experience was an even trade. We would definitely recommend.

Can't wait to come back!

We had a wonderful time in this very special unit! We enjoyed our stay so much, this is now our very favorite place on our favorite beach. The apartment was so clean and well stocked, there was absolutely nothing missing that we needed. The rooftop patio was everything we thought it would be - with the added bonus of enjoying a close up and personal visit with a pair of nesting ospreys - what a thrill! the view of the beach and of the inter-coastal was beyond compare. The only thing that made us not too sad to leave was that we booked our next visit already!

A Wonderful Week in a Penthouse Rental

  • 5 of 5
Verified Stay

My daughter and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay in the penthouse we rented. We liked the privacy we had there. It was nicely furnished and very comfortable. We considered the osprey nest complete with mama and two babies a real bonus. It was on our outside deck. We named the mother bird Edith. We appreciated the beach chairs and towels which were provided. The owner of our rental was very nice and helpful when we had any questions. I hope we will be able to stay there again. I would definitely recommend this place to my friends. There are many good restaurants nearby. There are many other places to visit which are an easy drive from the penthouse. We took a dolphin cruise from John's Pass and enjoyed a nature walk at Sawgrass Park. We walked to the Seabird Sanctuary, a place that cares for injured birds. It was fun to relax at the pool or on a very nice beach. Typing this makes me wish I were there..ah!

Beautiful, Convenient, and Secure.

  • 5 of 5
Verified Stay

The complex is located on a very nice and well maintained part of the beach. We were able to rent cabanas for the week which we would recommend. There is a convenient bathroom and a nice pool that was always in the sun.

This is a very convenient location just over the bridge and close to anything you might need or want to do. We didn't use the grilling area, but it was a large area with a nicely done tiki-hut in the middle.

The penthouse unit had beautiful views along with an amazing large deck area with professional synthetic turf. Perfect for watching the stars at night or getting some private time during the day.

We really liked the security of this condo. To reach the penthouse floor required a key in the elevator (there are only three units on penthouse level). Then the common lobby was nicely decorated and carpeted. To reach our suite, there was a locked door to our private walkway and then the door to the condo itself. We always felt very safe and never had to worry about someone getting into room.

The interior of the condo itself was nice, and everything was in working order. TV was a large flat screen, and the furniture was just okay. We wouldn't want to stay anywhere else when visiting this area.
