Paradise, close to the beach!
We loved staying at Julie's condo! Miss it already... Everything we needed she had already stocked and ready for us. Whenever we had a question, Julie responded right away, and we appreciated all her suggestions in preparing for our stay (esp the golf cart!). The beach is a short walk away, and we spent most of the days outdoors, either strolling along the beach, or playing in the pool, or discovering the little areas of the island on the golf cart we were able to rent from Julie. Such a relaxing, fun, rejuvinating time, even with our 3 little loud ones! At all times, we felt safe and comfortable - even as we rode out a storm (ferry shuttle was canceled for the day, but we had already gone to the supermarket and were prepared). There is no market on the island, so bring everything along that you would need (thinking a couple days ahead - incl. bottled water, food, paper towels, toiletries). The kids had a blast finding shells of all sorts and many shark teeth (the beach is strewn with shells - even a little sandbar is formed at low tide, packed with shells!). My husband was able to fish from the sand bar/beach, and caught a few good-sized fish! The condo was very convenient and well-equipped. We always washed off our feet down below and locked up our beach gear in the shed, and the laundry worked great for washing up our clothes as needed. We were 3 adults and 3 kids, and the condo fit us perfectly. LGI is not like any other beaches we had gone to - it's very serene, almost untouched by tourists, with breath-taking views, all with an old-Florida island-life feel to it. The kids loved the ferry rides to and fro from the mainland (make sure to put your initials on the list as it is first-come first-served). Everyone was friendly and many families with kids were there. We already miss the island, and hope to be back soon!
So glad you enjoyed our place!!
Great vacation at Hideaway Bay Beach
Stayed at K4 close to the beach. We were glad we rented the owners golf cart because the pool and the ferry to the mainland were a bit of a walk. The townhouse was clean and provided everything we needed. The beds and furniture were comfortable. Only thing I would suggest is newer bath towels and a light over the dinette table would have helped when we did puzzles. The owner was very helpful and we had a great time!
Peace and Quiet
We escaped to Hideaway Bay for Spring Break. Julie was fabulous at communication, fast at answering any and all questions regarding our stay. LGI is a private island with NO car transportation but the FREE ferry is the best. If you stay at other properties, you will have to pay for a water taxi, which was $25 each ride, when we stayed. The captains were kind, helpful, and always prompt, following the posted schedule, running about every 2 hours throughout the day time hours. The fenced and gated parking for our vehicle was convenient. We parked temporarily at ferry landing, unloaded our things into the NICE carts provided for transportation of all of our luggage over to the island and to our accomodations and then parked our car in the parking area. Publix is located just 1 1/2 short miles from ferry landing, providing an easy place to pick up all necessary food items for there is no place to eat on the island. K4 is probably the closest unit to the beach. We did not rent a golf cart because it wasn't necessary for us. You WILL NOT need it to access the beach. K4 is probably the farthest from the pool but only about a 5 minute, very easy, walk. For an older facility, the grounds are very nicely kept and clean. The beach area is AMAZING. It is peaceful and quiet with lots and lots of perfect shells and more sharks teeth than you could ever collect.
K4 was a clean unit. It is not an updated unit but is moderately decorated and not cluttered. It was fairly spacious and comfortable for our family of 5. There were a few beach toys, not the greatest, so I would bring my own. Same with the beach chairs. There are some provided but we wished we had brought our own. We have 2 teenagers and they were interested in having WiFi, of course. The WiFi was terrible. We almost had none most of our stay. The TV service is provided through Direct TV. It was cloudy a lot while we were there and TV service was not the best, specifically in the bedrooms. Wasn't a big deal for us but it was for our kids.
All in all, it was an amazing stay. We WILL be back and stay at Hideaway Bay. Everyone was so friendly and helpful but we also felt like it was private and we could escape from the busyness of our lives and enjoy one another. Thank you Julie for sharing your place with us. We gave it a 4 star rating because it is in need of updating, especially the bathrooms.
Best Location in Hideaway Bay!
Loved being so close to the beach. Julie was great to work with, wonderful with her communication. We will be back!
Our days were spent relaxing on the beautiful beach and our evenings spent lounging in the condo.
Great Place to Stay
We really enjoyed our stay in this condo. It has everything you need, is clean, and is the closest condo to the beach of all the Hideaway Condos. Great communication with the owner as well. We would definitely stay here again!
