Wonderful Vacation Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

This condo was perfect for our family's needs. We had all the comforts of home and a beautiful view. The condo was in excellent condition and was well cared for. We overlooked the golf course, and had access to a private beach. This was perfect during the time we went (Spring Break) as we were able to enjoy a family-friendly beach. I would definitely visit this property again.
