Welcome to CADY CAY! This unit is ON THE BEACH. It is literally a two minute stroll to the beach, one minute to the pool. There is no extra charge to enjoy my golf cart. This condo is east facing (great sunrises), on the 15th floor, with a great emerald-water view of the beach. Also, I am the owner and the manager. Belinda
We are the Kimbles, a family with seven children, and we would love for you to stay at our condo. We rely on rental income from you to afford this unit, and we know how competitive rentals are right now. What we have to offer you, besides reasonable rates, is a condo that we love to come to when we can, and that we have stuffed full of everything you need for a wonderful family vacation. You also get personal touches that are unique to renting from an owner directly, such as being able to use our golf cart and bikes. You have come to VRBO. If you are truly ready for the BY OWNER experience, and if you trust that I will do everything under my control to provide you and your family with the absolute best beach vacation experience possible, then this is the place for you.
This unit has been renovated by us, with rectified travertine tile floors (no grout lines), and blue pearl granite in the kitchen and all bathrooms. The kitchen has new appliances, including a refrigerator with rapid temperature recovery so that you can stuff it full without worrying that your milk will spoil. The master bath has an enormous shower with a rain-shower shower head. And there is also a full size stacked washer and dryer. The three TVs in the unit are new blu-ray and internet capable devices, and can access our Netflix account, giving you access to thousands of movies, documentaries, and tv shows, for free. The upgraded cable allows you to get the SEC Network football games, a must in the fall, plus many more channels. Our Westwinds building has free wifi, and it is blazing fast. You have a reliable and free internet connection for movies and downloads.
I want your vacation to be stress free, and most important, as much a vacation for mom as for the kids. In pursuit of this goal, I stock this unit with basic kitchen sundries, such as salt and spices, sugar, tea and coffee, condiments and more. I also keep paper plates and plastic cups, foil, wraps, and ziplock bags in the cabinets for you. Under the sink I have soap, dishwasher pods, wipes and garbage bags. The laundry area has detergent and dryer sheets, and I keep office supplies and first aid items there, also. I have basic bathroom items under the sink, and the beach area has a ton of beach stuff in it.
I provide towels and linens, not a service. This means that you have the highest quality sheets and towels I could find, Comphy brand. I also provide you with the highest quality bathroom amenities I could find, Poggesi, an Italian line. I really hope all of your needs are covered, and if you can think of anything else that I can supply for you, just let me know.
The height of this condo is such that you can experience everything for which you came to the Emerald Coast. The blue-green water and snowy-sand beach lay just beyond the balcony. Moreover, this unit is on the 15th floor, which is the penthouse floor. There are only four units on the entire floor, and the adjacent unit is never rented. The balcony is private, as there is not one beside you. The building tower next door is Southwinds, and it cannot be rented, so it is always empty. The only sound interrupting the ocean waves will be the laughter of your children. The location of this unit on the east side of the building means you can enjoy your tea or coffee, wine or beer, on the balcony without getting hammered by the sun and without getting blown away by the gales. Summer is wonderful, but I hope you have a chance to go in the off season. There is nothing better than throwing the balcony doors open and falling asleep to the rising moon and lapping waves, and waking up to the golden sunrise and the distant peal of seagulls.
The decor is very family friendly, with soft, beachy colors, butter-soft leather couch, big and comfy thick mattresses, and bar stools that will never stub a little barefoot toe. The kitchen back splash is done entirely in hand cut, hand placed Venetian glass smalti tiles, inspiring your children to name every fish, which is actually possible, including Sponge Bob. The dining room chandelier has over fifty feet of hand strung glass beads, and has inspired many games of I-Spy. All of the artwork is original, and has a beachy, off-beat vibe, guaranteed to bring a smile to your face. We know you will love this unit, and we hope that you will feel it love you right back.
Oh, I almost forgot -- Here is the boring information. This is a two bedroom unit. The master has a king bed and its own bath. The guest has a queen bed and twin bed, and has its own bath. The living room, with its queen sofa bed, can access the half bath. The full bathrooms are only accessible through one of the bedrooms. This unit sleeps 7 in beds, including two on the pullout sofa, and I also provide two port-a-cribs because I remember when I needed two. (fun days, good memories, tired me) I also have baby equipment like high chairs, pumpkin seat slings, and strollers, and toddler equipment like bed bumpers, sleeping cot, floaties and motion sensors (to make sure you know the kids are up) that you are welcome to use.
We have the most wonderful housekeepers, Sue and Susie, who do the cleaning and who help me keep the unit spic and span. They pleasantly tolerate the closets and cabinets I have stuffed full of vacation extras for you guys, and are on site if you need anything. I am the owner and not a management company, and I want to give you personal service and make your vacation very special. I absolutely love all of my guests, and I am grateful every day for the opportunity to share these beach condos with kindred spirits. If you feel an energy within the walls, I would venture to say that it is the love that has gathered there for many years. The energy outside is the infinite windsong that is God, and it is palpable.
I have uploaded a video I took of the unit and pool and beach. It is 37 minutes. It is very thorough, and I want you to be sure this is the place for you. Fair warning -- it is just me and hubby's camera, and I am not expecting an Oscar nomination.
I have three other units, also at Westwinds. They are vrbo429145 (2/2)(yes golf cart), vrbo 1023833 (2/2)(no golf cart), and vrbo 1102715 (1/1)(no golf cart). If this unit is already booked, or if there is something about it that you do not like, you can always take a look at the other units. They are completely different, in building location and in feel.
This unit has the use of our teal six seater golf cart at all times.
You can use the golf cart to troll over to the bay side and visit Baytowne Wharf or The Boulevard, where the Publix and the Carmike Cinema is located.
P.S. This unit is available for short term rentals (two weeks or less) only. While I have loved having my snowbirds in years past, we have made the difficult decision to keep the unit open in January and February for shorter term guests.
