About Peter Conway

My Wife and I own and operate a boutique style hotel on the North Shore of Boston. When time allows we love to visit our beach house.

Peter Conway purchased this condo in 2004

Why Peter Conway chose Florida Central Atlantic Coast

We love the intimacy and slower pace of the Stuart area. The beaches are the best. No over crowding, less traffic and a friendly atmosphere.

What makes this condo unique

Being on the top floor in the corner gives us the best views of the beach and ocean because we are not looking across at the other building like many of the units in these buildings do. It is nice to have the uninterrupted views without 4 floors of condos looking back at you. All we see is ocean and beach. We also have no neighbor above us or next to us, so it is quiet and peaceful. It is imperative to be on the upper two floors if your views are important. The lower floors have limited sight lines of the beach and ocean due to the seagrape and dunes.

Our Two Weeks in Paradise~

  • 5 of 5

We have rented this unit from Peter at least 5 times and we are NEVER disappointed. Everything is as stated and he is a pleasure to deal with. His unit is beautifully maintained, nicely equipped, conveniently located to nearby Downtown Stuart, Downtown Jensen Beach, etc... One of our favorite features is the comfortable king size bed in the master bedroom. You can view the magnificent sunrise without getting out of bed. Breathtaking! :-) We were lucky enough to witness nesting sea turtles @ dusk, emergent sea turtles going to sea for the first time, green sea turtles @ nearby Bathtub reef, enjoyed Jammin Jenson's (every Thursday, except Thanksgiving Day), Prawnbrokers, Luna's & Shuckers for some meals. Plus, the Blue Door coffee shop in downtown Stuart, a real treat. Mostly though, we keep returning to this condo and location because of Peter, it's safe, beautiful beach walks, surfing for my teenage daughter, and the general small to mid size Old Florida Town atmosphere. We love IRP!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your kind words. It's so nice to share our beach house with returning guests who have found all the fun and interesting highlights of our area. Coming back again and again is a true compliment to our home and this fabulous town of Stuart.

Girls Beach Trip

  • 5 of 5

We just got back from our annual Girls Week Away! We had a wonderful stay at the Beach House! The condo was just perfect! The kitchen was well stocked for everything we needed, the deck was large with plenty of room for 4 to view the magical sunrises and spend evenings enjoying the ocean views. The loggerhead turtles were nesting every night--it was an amazing site to watch. The local restaurants served delicious seafood and we all came back a few pounds heavier! We just loved the area and accommodations. Thank you so much for sharing your beautiful condo with us. Hope to return!!!

Disappointing from start to finish

  • 1 of 5

1. We sent a cashier’s check for the full amount. We requested notification when it was received, but never heard back. After contacting the owner we were told he had received it, but a receipt was never sent. This made us nervous with talk of vacation rental scams in the news.

2. The condo unit is in an older building, built in 1977. Nothing about this unit says, “Penthouse” except that it is on the top floor. The ceilings are low at 8 feet high and the rooms are small. The carpet in the master bedroom is old. Bathrooms are standard rental unit, nothing special. The view is not a direct one of the ocean, as you are at an angle in the middle of the building. In fact, you overlook the pool and tiki bar area of the Marriott resort next door. I imagine it might get loud in high season.

3. We experienced a mildew smell upon arrival. It was so bad that I had a sore throat and headache after a few hours. We decided to leave early, even though the odor seemed to improve. I emailed the owner and he said he would look into it, but we never received any further correspondence.

4. I had to inquire twice about the return of our security deposit. It took the 30 days and then some from our checkout date to receive it. There were only two of us in the unit for 2 nights, so really there was no excuse for it taking that long.

Just really disappointed with the whole experience!

Owner's Response: This is the first negative review we have ever received on our condo in the 12 years we have been renting it. It certainly got our attention when the guest called to say that they were leaving two days early of their four day stay. The guest said that there was a strong odor of mildew that we took very seriously and immediately called our maintenance person, housekeeper and air conditioning service company. All three went to the condo within 24 hours and did an in depth inspection of the entire unit, including walls, carpeting in bedrooms, tile floors, furniture and the a/c unit. They found nothing wrong and did not smell any mildew. (My housekeeper prides herself on her attention to detail and sensitive nose.) We constantly update our condo and add new features or amenities each year. There is a good reason why our unit is rented more than any other in these buildings. You can see by our calendar. Also, the unit was rented by numerous people after this guest checked out and there was not one complaint about condition of the unit or anything but praise for the views. The first guest moved in 3 days after this guest left and had no issues with mildew or views. The photos on our site are actual views from the rooms and balcony. The ocean and beach are the best in either of these buildings and has been mentioned in previous reviews. You can see that the view is panoramic. I know that some people can be more sensitive to smells than others and we tried to find a problem to address, but we were not able to find one. I am very aware of a mildew smell and would not tolerate it in my home. I am sorry that this quest did not enjoy their stay and I wish that I could have found the problem that they mentioned.

Lovely condo-spectacular view

  • 5 of 5

What a perfect week we had at the Beach House. We couldn't get enough of the incredible view of the ocean too. The condo was very nicely appointed and fully stocked. The kitchen even had a lobster pot for our seafood feast one night. The area restaurants we great too.it was nice to be so close to the beach and especially enjoyed the tiki bar and pool area next door. Would definitely recommend staying here to our northern friends.

Owner's Response: We are so glad that you had a great time at our Beach House. We love the area, the beach and our condo, but don't get the chance to stay there as much as we would like and live vicariously through guests like yourself. Thank you so much for taking the time to share your experience. Peter & Suzanne

Simply the best!

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from our week at this condo and it was simply the best! The pictures are exactly as the condo is - very nicely decorated, very comfortable, with everything you might need for a wonderful vacation. The kitchen is particularly well-stocked with everything you need to cook on your own, and former tenants have nicely left things like spices, oils, coffee filters, etc. We are a family of four and the condo was perfect for us. More than enough room! And what everyone else says is true - the balcony and the views are the best part. We enjoyed our coffee there each morning and drinks each evening. It really is a spectacular property! A note to people with kids: this is the perfect place, as you are right next to the Marriott pool and Tiki bar, where you will find other kids and families. There are also beach toys, chairs, etc. in the bedroom closet. BUT - if you do not want anything to do with kids, the private pool on this property is lovely and very quiet. Thank you very much to Peter and Suzanne - your beach house is amazing and we will be back!

What a beautiful condo.....Heaven on Earth!!

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from 9 days at this beautiful condo. I can't say enough about the views, the water, the restaurants and everything else we experienced in our first trip to Florida. The owners, Peter and Suzanne were very accommodating in our last minute request to rent the condo and made everything so easy. The condo is immaculate and beautifully decorated to reflect the seaside. We slept to the sounds of waves breaking and woke up every morning to the most beautiful sunrises without leaving the bed in the master suite. Thank so much Peter and Suzanne! We hope to return again!
