Perfect location! At the very end of the island where it was not very crowded.

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our family vacation.The unit was not very far from the beach.

While we were there their was a lot of seaweed and dead fish ,the pools were very handy those days.

The only complaint we had was traffic and nothing could have been done about that.

Owner's Response: We are so glad you enjoyed your stay with us. Unfortunately Mother Nature has a hand in the water condition. June grass comes and goes with the tide. You can have seaweed one minute and the next it will be completely gone. We hope to see you again next year!

Condo was OK but not what we expected

  • 3 of 5

While there was nothing "wrong" with the unit it was not at all what we were expecting. Things like the closet door in the 2nd bedroom couldn't open bc of no space to the same thing with the shower door in the 2nd bathroom. One wall was all mirrors which we did not like at all and you could see large dirty spots on the ceiling. The view left a lot to be desired if you're looking for an ocean view. The staff was amazing and super sweet at all times.

Owner's Response: I am glad you enjoyed your stay with us. I apologize that you had the issues you had. The wall of mirrors in the living room were the original from when the unit was built. The builders thought that this would make the unit look larger. The owner is looking into upgrading the unit in the near future. There was some staining on the ceiling that we have taken care of. This unit has just a distant view of the Gulf which is the way we advertise. I haven't had any issues opening the closet doors in the 2nd bedroom, there is plenty of room for this. I hope you do stay with us again!
