Great room for my family!

  • 4 of 5

My family and I spend 5 days at #409 Gulfview 1 and thoroughly enjoyed our room! Criss, from vacationrentalssouthpadre was awesome and very responsive when I contacted her. The room upgrades made it very comfortable with 2 flatscreen TV's, huge master bed and comfortable living space. My only complaint is the security officer at Gulfview 1's pool. He was a total jerk and extremely unprofessional. Since we spent most of our time at Schlitterbahn and the beach I didn't have to worry about him too much. If I were Gulfview 1 I would seriously look into how he treats guests.

Beautiful Condo, great location!

  • 5 of 5

Our family really enjoyed our stay at the Rain Dancer condo. It was beautifully decorated, comfortable and had everything we needed; dishes, extra sheets, blankets, pillows, etc. There was enough room that our family fit comfortably, and we liked how the condo was centrally located near restaurants and attractions. We went for New Years Eve and we could see fireworks from the condo. The customer service was excellent. Criss was very accommodating. We definitely plan on staying again soon!

Great Condo, close to everything!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I enjoyed our stay in the Rain Dancer Condo, it was beautifully decorated and well equipped with everything we needed. We were glad for the bottom floor easy access after a long day at the beach, and the lay out made it feel like home.

Excellent property!

  • 5 of 5

Enjoyed the Rain Dancer very much! Clean and very well stocked with everything you will need while away. Washer and dryer and a huge plus! I had the top off my Jeep and my bike outside in the entry way to the unit we were in and no one disturbed my belongings. :)
