About Jo Ann Diaz

My husband and I love to travel, we are in construction and do all our own repairs and cleaning for our rentals. We have 6 grandchildren that live local and we love to share the beach with them. They all are very active swimmers, and into competitive sports.

Jo Ann Diaz purchased this apartment in 1990

Why Jo Ann Diaz chose Florida Central Gulf Coast

We chose our Sunset Beach condo because we love the beach and the location it is within 1 hour of our home. Sunset beach is known for its sunsets, the soft white sand and is great for long walks. We have dolphins that swim by daily. We have great sea shell hunting, and parrots that come to our shade trees. You could never be bored. There is wild life abundant. It is a beautiful place to relax and have fun.

What makes this apartment unique

We are unique on the beach because we have a beautiful flower garden. We get compliments frequently. The beach side of our property has it's own private walk way to the beach. It is very private, quiet and a great place to relax and read a book. Sitting on the deck drinking your morning coffee and eating breakfast is a great past time. The view of the Gulf is beautiful.

Best Romantic Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We have been going on many vacations over the years, but this is the BEST PLACE that we have ever stayed at. Jo Ann is ADMIRABLE! She went beyond her devoirs to make sure that we were able to rent her charming beach apartment, even though there were many obstacle in the way, she made it happened. "THANKS AGAIN Jo Ann ". My wife loved this place so much that we came back on July 1st. for a ten day stay, to celebrate the 4th. of July and her birthday on July 6th.. The view is breath taking, as seen on the website. You will not regret staying at this charming place, it is in a quite private beach where everyone of all ages will greatly enjoy it. Jo Ann and her husband are there in no time if, you ever need them to take care of any issues that might pop up. This is very important when you are on vacation.

Beyond Expectations

  • 5 of 5

Without a doubt the best holiday we've ever enjoyed. Condo was clean and modern with all amenities as promised. Add to this the sundeck, sunsets, view of the Gulf, frolicking dolphins, beaches, restaurants/ live music, and friendly Community and we really don't know how our holiday could've been any better. The garden is beautiful beyond words and a very peaceful place to sit and relax. Location- short walk to everything downtown but far enough away from traffic, noise, etc. Second night had a very minor issue and emailed Jo Ann who responded immediately- was resolved in less than 1 minute- very impressive.

A sincere thanks to Jo Ann and Tony for making my wife's B'Day present, in her own words, "The Best One Ever". Eagerly anticipating a return next year.

Great Sunsets every night!

  • 5 of 5

What an outstanding location! We spent 6 nights here and had a wonderful time. The unit was newly remodeled and was perfect for our family of 4. We spent most of our time outside, but our time inside was great. The kitchen was large enough for us to cook a dinner for 8 of fresh catch. The best feature of the property was that you are not just close to the beach, you are on the beach! The ability to make a margarita and watch the sunset every night within 30 steps of the ocean was just spectacular. Location to shopping, restaurants, and tourist attractions is perfect. (including John's Pass, Pass-a-Grille, and local winery's) The only, very minor flaw is that there is not a grill available for use. We did find and old hibachi that we were able to re-purpose, and it worked fine. Maybe a dedicated gas grill would have been nice, but we made so with what we found. See you next year!

Owner's Response: I am so happy that you had a great vacation at our beach front rental. Thank you for taking the time to send a review. I really enjoyed meeting you and your family. I certainly understand about the grill. We have had a permanent grill in the past, also gas grills, and portable ones. They just don't last on the beach. They rust really fast and fall apart just like the beach chairs. . . Anything that is metal on the beach has a really short life. We are constantly replacing things. We just gave up on grills.

Simply the Best!

  • 5 of 5

This condo is the best I've ever stayed in! The owner is a wonderful lady who spent almost an hour telling my husband about the place. It was clean and comfortable. Having a washer and dryer was a plus! The garden is relaxing and quite beautiful. We plan on coming back again!

Die Lage direkt am Strand ist einfach ein Traum, nur durch den eigenen Garten und schon ist man am weißen traumhaften Strand wo Delphine vorbeischwimmen! Die Wohnung ist sehr gepflegt und sauber, die Küchenausstattung ist toll, alles vorhanden was man braucht! Wir kommen sicher wieder! Danke Jo Ann

Owner's Response: Thank you Brigitte and Wolfgang for the 5 star review. I do not speak German so not sure what your review said. You have a wonderful family and would love for you to return in the future. Jo Ann My friends and yearly renters from England interpreted the German for me. Heavenly location right on the beach. A few steps through the private garden and you’re in dreamland on a white sandy strip where dolphins swim by. The apartment is very clean and tidy (not now it ain’t!), the kitchen is fully equipped and all necessary facilities are to hand. As Arnold Schwarzenegger said to the cop at the station: ” I’ll .....”. Thank You Joann.

Already Planning A Return Trip

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful views, very peaceful, and a great location.

Our last night at the property my wife and I sat on the beach to watch the sunset. Meanwhile Dolphins were breaching the ocean surface and one of the dolphins was actually halfway between the buoy and the shore. Kind of cool. We saw dolphins from our property on one other evening as well.

The property is very close to everything you'd need such as the grocery store (Publix is 2 minutes away) and restaurants. Only a 6 minute drive to John's Pass. The beach is really never crowded and everyone around us on the beach was minding their own business and respectful. There is a nice courtyard in the back of the property that has chairs for you to view the water and enjoy your surroundings. The views from the back porch don't get old.

Jo Ann was easy to work with and we are definitely planning on returning to this condo.
