Superb view

My wife and I loved our visit here. The view from the balcony of the beach/ocean/surf was amazing. The condo was very comfortable and well supplied. Highly recommended.

The condo was perfect for a long Thanksgiving break.

  • 5 of 5

Loved the location of this condo, with the balcony looking right onto the beach. Loved sitting on the coach and looking out at the ocean. The kitchen was fully stocked with everything needed to fix Thanksgiving dinner. Paula had a notebook full of information about local restaurants, attractions and manuals for all the appliances. Out parking spot was right under the building which worked perfect for us. Plus extra parking spot for our visiting family was much appreciated.She informed us we could do an early check-in since the condo was cleaned the previous day. The palm tree decorated for Christmas added a special festive touch to our holiday. It truly was a "shore thing" and a "sure thing". Hope to stay here again.

Awesome Ocean Front View

  • 5 of 5

AWESOME!! What more can I say about the view!

Walkway to beach is next to building. We have some mobility challenges and was impressed with the additional 2x2 handrail to grip on the stairs to beach. Sandpiper building has an elevator also. We were happy for both of these.

Parking is undercover and next to stairs, up 1 flight to 1st condo.

Open the door and WOW the view! The condo is super clean.

Large TV and dvd player with surround sound. Kitchen is well equipped, ready to cook in. Bath has plenty of towels and hair dryer. Both bedrooms have comfortable beds, with soft sheets, blankets, and lots of pillows. We will happily stay here again on the next Jacksonville trip. Thanks for making your place great!

Nice condo that is very well stocked

  • 5 of 5

Condo is a small two bed room with rooms that are right next two each other. Look at condo pictures posted to get a feel for the rooms. We liked the condo and its location. You can walk to restaurants and bars. Beach front and over looking the pool. The Condo was stocked with a lot of glass ware and plates and cooking pots and pans with a lot items that you would have at a home like plastic bags and salt and pepper. The owner was very easy to work with and responsive to questions before our trip. We would stay here again.

A Blessed Week

  • 5 of 5

Considering Hurricane Irma hit 5 weeks prior to staying we could not have asked for a better week. Fortunately for the Browns and their renters, the condo did not incur any major damage. The pool fence was knocked down but that is HOA's responsibility. It actually gave us easier access to the pool, ha. The condo was very clean! The beds were very comfy! And the place was very homey! Paula was so kind to give us paper and laundry products to use. She also put on a clean couch cover for my little dog and a plastic mesh on the balcony bars to keep him from falling through - very considerate! My mom and I thoroughly enjoyed binge watching Netflix on the big screen TV while having a perfect oceanfront view! Absolutely loved it and would highly recommend it! Hope to be back next year.
