Guestbook comments from the owner

My husband and I stayed for two weeks in April. The condo was just beautiful--no surprises, just like in the pictures. We sat on the balcony and were just in awe of the ocean being so close. The only sound we heard was the sound of waves crashing on the shore. The kitchen was fully stocked so we were able to prepare many of our meals. Everything was very clean. We booked another stay at this condo already.

Great view, great room.

My whole family enjoyed our stay. The view from the room was awesome. The room was clean and roomy, and having two bathrooms was great. I would highly recommend this room.

Perfect for a beach vacation!

  • 5 of 5

Right on the Gulf beach with an amazing view. Sunsets on the beach or right from the balcony. Condo was fully updated (tile, granite, stainless, nice decor) and very well stocked. The extra bedroom with two full beds made the space great for our family of five. Laundry just outside the door so convenient. We loved being on the beach so our family with older kids could just come and go from walks, skim boarding, frisbee, sunbathing, etc. Made it relaxing for everyone. Having parking was great so never had to worry about that. We didn't use the pool since the beach was too inviting but lots of guests did. The location was good and not crowded on the beach. Also, lots of great restaurants just north in Indian Rocks Beach. Especially liked Haze Ice Cream!

Family Setting

  • 5 of 5

The condo has great space. Very clean. The living and dining rooms were very spacious. The kitchen is new and totally stocked with everything you'll need. The balcony is long and wide with enough seating for an entire family and then some. You're just 1/2 story above the beach which runs right up to the condo. While you're out on the balcony you get the feeling you're actually sitting on the beach! The sunsets are magnificent. The beach itself is large, beautiful and quiet. If you're looking for a getaway with your family, this is the place to stay.

Great condo!

  • 5 of 5

This condo had everything we needed and more! The view was fantastic and the condo itself was very updated and clean. The kitchen was fully stocked with all necessary appliances and utensils that allowed us to cook meals and eat while enjoying the view of the beach. Easy access to the beach and the condo was supplied with lawn chairs and beach accessories. The location of the condo was close to many restaurants and attractions. We enjoyed our vacation here and would definitely stay here again!

The perfect place for a family vacation

  • 5 of 5

I was very impressed with my experience. It felt like a second home as soon as we walked in the door. Everything you need is provided and more. It is so kind of the owners to supply so many extra supplies such as beach toys and cookware. The decor was beautiful and the view is as good as it gets. I really enjoyed the location of the condo with so many restaurants and different shops close by, some within short walking distance. Customer service was excellent and the property was extremely clean. I will be recommending this condo to anyone I know looking to stay in this area. Thank you for a wonderful stay and all the great memories my family will keep.
