Looking out the fourth floor kitchen window you see water and homes built on canals-- looking out the balcony off the bedroom and living room is endless views of the wide open Gulf. The outside property is excellently maintained, the salt-water pool is always sparking and just the right temperature. The unit is updated and very clean.

Absolutely perfect

  • 5 of 5

Mary Beth's condo was perfect perfect perfect! I couldn't recommend anything better! The area was perfect, the complex was immaculately clean, the condo itself was squeaky clean with a beautiful view of the gulf. We saw sharks in the water from our balcony! The sunsets are gorgeous off the balcony as well. The pool was nice and large even though we didn't use it, we walked by to check it out. We stayed a week and at the end were joking about buying this condo from her because we loved it so much!

Beautiful views

  • 5 of 5

We loved the views and the quiet laid back atmosphere. Wish there were closer shopping for rainy days. My daughter suggested the complex get hot tubs, maybe some shuffleboard or something like that. It would also be great if the complex made kyakis available. Just curious where do people ride there bikes. We seen several in garage.

Overall the condo was very nice, clean, well decorate. It was perfect for us. The view from the condo was fantastic.

Comfortable and relaxing place to stay. Beautiful views and close to everything

  • 5 of 5

My Mother, Sister and I stayed for 6 days. We walked into a bright, clean, comfortable 1 bedroom condo. Plenty of room for the 3 of us.. While doing dishes, I got to watch boats coming and going. But the best was the view from the balcony. Enjoying the evening and hearing the sounds of music coming from Sam's on the water restaurant. During the day we enjoyed the saltwater pool. I'd like to say I used the gym, but I can't. I did however walk into the gym and was very nice. It was a wonderful vacation and looking forward to next year. Well that is if I don't a condo there first.

Mary Beth is wonderful to work with. She got right back to me every time I had any questions.

If I could change one thing about the condo. I would replace the balcony chair and table set to something more sturdy and comfortable.

Everything else was wonderful. Thank you Mary Beth for a great get-a-way. LeeAnn, MA

Beautiful and Peaceful

  • 5 of 5

We checked in April 29 and checked out May 4 wishing we didn't have to leave. The condo is beautiful and had everything we needed. The owners are very responsive to messages. My favorite part was sitting on the balcony overlooking the lagoon and bay. Tim's favorite part was walking around the lagoon though he did enjoy sitting on the balcony also. There was plenty right around the condo we could have done (pool, game room, exercise room,, etc.) and there is plenty within a 15 minute driving distance to do as well but this mini vacation was for nothing more than vegging out. We would return in a heartbeat.

Loved this condo, tv & wifi nice to have included, pics are accurate with stunning balcony views of lagoon and gulf of Mexico, sunsets gorgeous. Nice area with lots to do and tons of restaurants and shopping. A little far from the beach but the pool is lovely . We are Canadians and our hosts were very accommodating and check in was very smooth. Thanks Mary Beth and Mike - perfect holiday for us.
