By general acclaim, this is the best Gulf beach in Florida. The wide, white-sand Vanderbilt Beach is secluded yet in the middle of the action, impeccably groomed, overflowing with shells and dolphins and even baby sea turtles.
The sunsets are knockouts day after day, drawing admirers from all over the world.
The two-bedroom condo was redecorated in 2012, with new living room furniture, lush swivel chairs overlooking the Gulf, flat screen TV, high speed internet and WiFi., and a wireless printer. The third-floor lanai is the perfect perch to toast the day as the sun settles. Juliet balcony off dining room.
The sound of the surf lulls you to sleep in the master suite, which includes a walk-in closet and a second TV. A new king size bed was installed in April, 2015.
The second bedroom overlooks the bay and tennis court and has a queen bed. The new sleeper sofa in the living room allows the condo to sleep six comfortably. With only 30 units, the building is quiet and friendly.
