Amazing views, incredible location and a gracious host

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I spent a weekend at Thad's condo, and I have nothing but good things to say about the experience. The views are incredible, with the ocean on one side and the intracoastal waterway on the other. Thad was great, very communicative, and pleasant to deal with. Highly, highly recommended.

The unit is clean and the bed is great! However, guests who are thinking about cooking some of their meals in the condo should know there is no dishwasher. The pots and pans are old, scratched badly, and need replacing, and there is only ONE cereal bowl. My husband and I had to take turns using it!!! There's not a good cutting knife. The "oven" listed is in the microwave and it can be turned to the bake mode but size is limited and the cooking is hard to regulate since it's not a real stove. The sleeper sofa in the living room is very UNcomfortable for sitting and enjoying the view or TV.

Very much enjoyed it

  • 5 of 5

It's one of our favorite places. Perfect for my wife and me.

Sometimes, I need a place with a laid-back atmosphere to concentrate on my writing. Here, I can do that, and I can take a break and stroll on the beach whenever I want. Even the many weddings that are held down on the beach do not distract me up on the eighth floor. The tiki bar and restaurant downstairs are available if I want them, but they are so far away that they do not disturb me, even on warm summer evenings when there is a lot happening. There are two pools on the first floor, one inside and one outside. Just 10-15 minutes away, many good places to shop, dine, or be entertained if you want to take the time. The updated furniture and appliances are nice. The parking is more than adequate, and the staff are pleasant and helpful. We will definitely go back.

Loved it!

Was a great place to stay - the room was everything it was promised to be - clean and very nice - fully stocked kitchen and the view was spectacular! Thad was wonderful to deal with - quick to communicate and answer all our questions. And the beach - ahhh! Everything was just as promised. Would definitely recommend this condo.
