"Me, my friend and her husband stayed at this condo in June and it was wonderful, couldn't have asked for a better place to stay. Clean,spacious rooms, beautiful beach views. I will recommend this property to anyone wanting to go to the beach and I will be staying here again. Loved it. And Mrs. Sharon is a wonderful person to work with."

Good stay but a few issues to be aware of (Owner is *wonderful*!)
"This condo is just as described on the site. The location is a double-edged sword. Wonderful because of its proximity to Front Beach Road, Pineapple Willy's and the local Wal-Mart (and Wal-Mart liquors) for stocking the condo. The downside is the location in the building. The bedroom faces Thomas Drive so you get an amazing amount of noise at all hours of the morning (we were awakened by noise from 1-3AM every night of our 7-day stay). There is a monstrosity of a condo building across Thomas Drive from this building and every night there was yelling from the balconies of those condos (which face the bedroom window of this unit). In addition, it is right down the street from 2 of the biggest clubs on Thomas Drive (La Vela and Spinnaker) so the street noise at 1-3AM is insane! I suspect this would be better in the winter but if you are a light sleeper as I am, bring ear plugs!!
The condo does have fabulous views of the Gulf but if you want to see the sunset you'll have to leave your condo and go downstairs to the beach side of the building. Not a huge deal but if sunsets from your balcony are important, know that this location will not work. I have no idea how a previous reviewer "spent hours watching amazing sunsets from the balcony" as the unit's balcony faces east and the sunsets are blocked by the building itself. Perhaps she has x-ray vision :)
The internet (wi-fi) is also snail-paced slow. This was a bit frustrating as I had specifically written the owner stating we MUST have fast speed internet as my husband works remotely and needed the fast speed for work the week we were there. She assured me that there was fast speed wi-fi in the unit. The wi-fi was so slow we ended up using the hotspot on our phones (which of course, uses our data plan), as often I could not even get my email to load on the house wi-fi. In the owner's defense, maybe she doesn't realize that the wi-fi is as slow as it is and I'm willing to give her the benefit of the doubt. Just be aware, if you need fast speed wi-fi for work or another reason, this property will not work for you.
Overall, we thoroughly enjoyed our week there. The condo is decorated exceptionally well and the bed was very comfortable. Our son (19) joined us for 3 of the 7 days we were there and stated the sofa bed was very comfortable as well. The kitchen, while tiny, was workable with all the items you'll need to stay for a week (blender, toaster, etc). The beach chairs were a nice addition."

"We have stayed in this condo for 5 years and the owners are so accommodating. It has been newly updated with new appliances, fresh paint, king size bed, and awesome shower. The condo on the ocean front where you can see the sunset and rise everyday. The beach is right out your door. It is close to a Wal-Mart and plenty of nice restaurants within walking distance."
