The second bedroom has a Queen size bed, with beautifully stained furniture and the third bedroom has a full size pull out sofa couch with a thick posture-pedic mattress. The living room has another breath taking view through its wall to wall, floor to ceiling windows accommodated by a large flat screen TV and a Queen sofa couch with a posture-pedic mattress, ready to pull out in order to sleep 8 comfortably in this Condominium. Enjoy the majestic panorama views and sounds of Stewart Beach and the Gulf of Mexico from the expansive balcony of this 10th floor condo with lounge seating as well as a large table that can seat 6-8 easily. The condo is elegantly decorated, complete with a state of the art kitchen with stainless steel appliances and 4 LCD HD TVs with cable boxes.
