We are also right across the street from the local boardwalk where you can eat at beachfront restaurants, let the kids play on the beach playground, fish on the pier, shop, or watch surfers catch a wave.

The Gulfarium is also within walking distance where they have great shows with sea lions, dolphins, sea otters, and many more sea life. Adults enjoy it as well! Choose from numerous famous golf courses and so much more.

Great room and amenities

  • 5 of 5

We loved the condo and the view out of the Owner's suite. My boys love the lazy river. My boys are 5 and 8. This is the 3rd time we've been to the resort. It's not as manic as it is around Harbor Walk. The condo was great with most everything we needed. We didn't take a hair dryer, thinking there would be one there. We didn't use the hot tub but it looked nice. The beds were really comfortable, we were surprised.On this side of the Heron, we were right there for renting a pontoon boat. We would rent again if available. We wish the resort had a recycling bin. We did use and throw away alot of plastic.

Great family condo

  • 5 of 5

I recently stayed in this condo with my husband, 2 children aged 3 and 5, and my aunt and uncle. This condo really has a great set up for a family. It has 2 bathrooms. The master bathroom is great with a shower and soaker tub. There is also a large walk in closet with lots of storage space. The master bedroom has a great view of the bay and walk out access to the back deck that has a hot tub. The living space is spacious with plenty of room to eat, play, and just relax. The laundry room is great and the washer and dryer work great. A downfall for couples with children is that the room with 2 twin beds is right next to the front door. This did not prove to be a problem for us, yet was a concern. The guest bedroom is the second door and close enough to hear if someone tries to escape/leave haha. Overall, we really enjoyed our stay in this condo and I highly recommend the place. There was a little hiccup with check in time; the condo wasn't ready at 4 pm. It was worth the wait, because the condo was nicely cleaned. The beds were comfy and this condo is well taken care of. Thank you.

Owner's Response: Hey Danielle, I am so glad you enjoyed the spaciousness, views, and cleanliness of our condo. Thank you for your kind review. I do hope you will come again! That is very unusual for our crew to not have the condo ready by 4pm (or sometimes earlier). It must have been a hectic day with, like you mentioned, some "hiccups". That happens with the rental business. Thank you for understanding. We look forward to having you again! Sincerely, Shelley :)

Perfect vacation!!!

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect condo... the beds were very comfortable and the furnishings made us feel very much at home! We didn’t want to leave! We actually arrived a little early and Shelley allowed us to check in a hour or so early...she is great to work with!!! Can’t go wrong renting from Bill and Shelley! We will definitely try to book with them again next time!

Amazing Views

  • 5 of 5

Our group had a great time staying at this condo. All the items we needed for the kitchen to prepare easy meals. The lanai level is convenient if we didn't want to wait for the elevator. Hot tub and views of the water were very relaxing. Thank you again!

Owner's Response: Hey Jaclyn, Thank you for coming to stay in our lanai condo! I am so glad you enjoyed your stay and appreciated the convenience of staying in a lanai. Very true! The end units are very private with beautiful views of the water from your hot tub and patio. I agree! Thank you for staying! Shelley :)

Quiet and relaxing! We love it here!

  • 5 of 5

Comfortable and nicely decorated! This condo is especially nice if you want quiet away from everything with a beautiful view of the bay and private hot tub.. It’s literally only a few yards to the lazy river and the bay. We don’t mind the walk to the beach and our kids have always loved the pools, hot tubs and lazy river side the best. Hope to be back soon!

Owner's Response: You said it better than I could Beverly! It is a very quiet condo. I appreciate that it's not on the lazy river with the noise, but easy access to the lazy river and pool area. I am so glad you enjoyed it as well! Please come again anytime! Shelley :)
