Great spot.

  • 5 of 5

This place was great. Rooms were large! It looks exactly like the pictures. They also had an umbrella and a couple of chairs to use. There was a ton of kids stuff for the beach as well. Great stay with an amazing view. Check-in and out process was very easy.

Celebrating Anniversary

  • 5 of 5

Your place is immaculate. We enjoyed every minute while staying there. We enjoyed watching the sunrises from the patio and the sunsets while walking the beach. Everything was so convenient--lots of GOOD restaurants nearby.

Great getaway for the family

  • 5 of 5

This was our first year staying in this condo and we will definitely be coming back. We have been staying at a condo that was one block off the beach. The convenient public beach access at our old condo kept us coming back until we tried Sea Vista.

The beach couldn't have been nicer and, because it is the last condo on the south end of the island, it was not crowded at all. The beach in front of the park to the far south was very crowded and the area in front of the Sapphire was congested. The Sea Vista beach was nice and quiet with lots of room to spread out.

Everything was easy to get to including Schlitterbahn which is located directly behind Sea Vista. The building and the grounds, including the pool, were very clean. It was also nice to have a security guard on duty at night. The condo itself was fantastic! It was fully stocked. I really mean fully stocked with every kitchen device you might need including a fairly good stocked pantry. The bedrooms had plenty of extra blankets and sheets and the closets had plenty of childrens toys. In fact, our kids didn't even play with the toys they brought.

The condo was exactly as described and I highly recommend it, especially for a family. We were originally looking for a ground floor unit thinking it would be easier with young kids. As it turns out, the 3rd floor worked great because we were much happier knowing the kids could venture onto the balcony without straying any further.

Perfect family vacation

  • 5 of 5

My family went on its first beach vacation together and it was great. The Family Tides condo was the perfect set up for us and was well furnished for all of our needs. Was really excited to find all the extras that were there- like chairs, shade tent, beach toys- next time I won't pack so much! The view was beautiful and the beach access was so close. Overall, a great place and would highly recommend to my friends. We will definitely rent this again next time we go!

Great Place!

  • 5 of 5

We loved this condo. There were 4 children and 4 adults and it was perfect for all of us. It was just as described and the view of the water was spectacular. We will definitely book this condo again in the future. The security guy Tony was a very nice man. He helped us to our room since we arrived after the office closed. Thanks Terry for helping us create some great memories!
