"My husband and I stayed here with our 19 year old son. The two bedrooms and two bathrooms worked great for us. It was very nice to have a washer and dryer to use. We used the kayaks every day to go out to the bay. We saw dolphins, turtles, crabs, and birds. We did not use the bikes that were available but it was nice to have the option. The beach is a very short walk away. The owner was very helpful and allowed us to stay late on our departure day."

"We´re visiting from Denmark, Europe and found this condo at homeaway.com
It´s a really nice condo with everything you need for a great vacation with your kids. The kids really enjoyed our stay and thought it was really cool with all the sand toys and that the pool is located right next to the beach.
Walking distance to restaurants and ice cream.
We´re definitely comming back."

"Can't find a negative thing to say about our stay.
We got settled in just in time for the 4th of July fireworks. There were several going off as far as we could see.
The view off the balcony was by far the best. We were able to see some of the most amazing sunsets at night as well as several dolphin sightings during the day.
Make sure you walk over to Flippers on the bay for some amazing food!
Jon was such a pleasure to work with and the property was very well maintained. Jon provided a lot of great information and checked in to make sure things were going well. I would highly recommend this location and we will be back the next time we vacation on the Gulf.
Huge thanks to Jon and his wife for such a nice and relaxing vacation!"

"The unit was nice, had a great view of the ocean and was as described in the listing. Kitchen was well stocked, including a washer/dryer, overall satisfactory. Did not take advantage of the beach chairs, umbrella, etc but nice that they were available. Living room had clean and comfortable sofa/loveseat and large flatscreen TV with cable and WIFI. Master bedroom had a comfortable King bed with memory foam topper (did not use the second bedroom, but it contained 2 twin beds and had a window that faced the street, unlike the Master which has patio doors opening onto the balcony). The building is very quiet, all units face the ocean, all have screened balconies, plenty of parking. Pool was nice, community room had book exchange shelves (good place to borrow a book or leave yours behind). There was also a rec room with a ping pong table. The beach is extremely wide at this southern tip of the island, check it out using google aerial view. Due to this along with the calmer waters of the Gulf of Mexico, you will not hear waves crashing on the sand as you will along the Atlantic or Pacific coasts. This was a slow week on the island (week before Christmas week), not many tourists and the snowbirds had not yet arrived. Driving to the tourist spots on the north end was uncongested (unlike high season). Found the island library where we could print off our boarding passes for the flight home (only 10 cents per sheet). The Publix grocery store is only 3 miles north or you will pass a couple others along Bonita Beach Drive on your way from the airport (be sure to use the southern approach instructions provided by the property manager). Preferred this south end of the island due to much quieter than the north end easier access to the airport, close proximity to Lovers Key state park (you can walk there from the condo, only half mile, $2 per person entrance fee). Easy drive a few miles south to Hickory Island where there are 10 beach access points with free parking. Although you may be able to spend a week on this island without a car (take a cab to/from airport and use the trolley or bikes on the island), I found a rental car on Hotwire that cost less than the cab would have (about $60 each way), so it's worth checking into. The property manager was very accessible and answered my emails immediately. Security deposit was refunded very quickly. Would recommend this rental to anyone for a safe and peaceful vacation with beautiful views and quiet location"
