"Just had to write another review after another wonderful month in my home away from home.
Nothing has changed....it's still an excellent peaceful retreat with amazing owners who know how to look after their guests.
I really can't recommend Royal Palm highly enough and I am booked again for next year.
Thank you again for everything, Mindy"

"My family (including 3 and 5 year old children) thoroughly enjoyed are stay at this condo. The beach, views and sound of the surf are amazing. We enjoyed the pool, the condo is comfortable, updated and clean. Everything you need is available for use in the kitchen. They even stocked some toilet paper and paper towels. There are plenty of beach and shower towels too. We had no problems at all and enjoyed are stay.
This beach is quieter than its Clearwater Beach neighbor, which is refreshing. This area is fun and laid back.
The only things we noted are that the TV and cable are not great, the living room furniture and patio furniture were a bit torn and uncomfortable. The beach and the rest of the condo more than make up for that."

Living at water's edge with amazing views of the Gulf!
"Our stay at Oceanway was wonderful! You are living right at water's edge with fantastic views of the Gulf! Sunsets and moonsets are just amazing! The condo is fully equipped, comfortable, and updated. The furnishings and appliances are the nicest we have had in a rental property. New pots and pans were provided for our extended stay. Sleeps 4 comfortably. The building is well maintained. The pool is heated and kept warm as is the hot tub. The property manager was very accessible and responded quickly to our texts.
Our favorite restaurants in the area include Maggie Mae's for breakfast, Guppy's for lunch or dinner, 18 on the Rocks (lobster special for $13.99), and E&E Stakeout for a special dinner.
We are definitely looking forward to returning next year!"

"Michiganders need sunshine. So sunshine is what we seek.
My extensive search began as the search always starts; by reading reviews. The Sea Isle Villas were a perfect fit with location, availability to suit our travel dates, AND fabulous reviews.
Ian! Everyone was right about Ian. A perfect gentleman with perfect response time; so important when planning, so comforting during travel dates.
When we unlocked the door using the keybox, we were all pleasantly relieved. The unit is beautiful, especially the renovated kitchen. The space was more than what two adventurous mature couples needed, but we welcomed the extra room and amenities.
The overall experience was favorable. The disappointment we experienced in the response, or rather the unresponsiveness of the "key holder", Mary. We never saw her. The only time I heard her voice was when I phoned...and got her voicemail.
She did not " meet" us, as was indicated in her email, she did not arrive to secure the unit(and our personal items) when a routine furnace maintainence appointment occurred during our rental period. She did not have the combination to the bike lock, although Ian had indicated in the Welcome Folder that she would, and responded to me via text that I should have read the folder more carefully. Four professional adults had already searched through the folder for the combination, and assuming the "keyholder" would have the information, inquired to receive the information - not a reprimand.
After other issues with a clogged dryer vent, a dusurbingly disgusting blanket and a filthy over-burdened vacuum cleaner bag( when was the carpet truly cleaned last?) I was more than frustrated with the unseen woman who was hired to represent the Owner's best interest. Sure hope Mary can step up her game.
I emailed Ian. He responded immediately! He then phoned the condo! Both my friend and myself were able to speak with him. Our visit was stellar. The incidental situations were bothersome. Ian was amazing-again.
We all agreed that we would stay again. The problems were not enough to sway us from a return visit to Sea Isle. Thanks, Ian!"
