About the property

Condo, 1 Bedroom + Bunk Area, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4-6)

Beautifully decorated in Caribbean colors, you can almost jump into the gulf from the balcony of this 7th floor unit. There's nothing between you and the whitest beach in the world!

Watch the dolphins play as you take in the fantastic view. You'll really enjoy the beach here because it is almost never crowded, even in the busiest time.

Everything for your comfort is at Emerald Skye 63 -- everything that you would expect at home. A comfortable king size bed; a queen-size pull out couch in the living room; and two built in hall bunk beds for the kids. Brand new HEATED pool & patio area, and grills. And WiFi is provided free for our guests.

Just a couple of blocks west are three grocery stores and shopping centers with several restaurants. 'Cotton's Restaurant' is right across the street from Emerald Skye. They've got great steaks and seafood, and a lounge with big screen TVs.

If you prefer to catch your own, there are hundreds of boats available for charter. From May to December, the deep-sea anglers go after sport fish, many weighing up to 700 pounds. From the piers, jetties and the beach you can catch redfish, bluefish and pompanos.

The newest Arnold Palmer-designed course is Cypress Bend at Craft Farms, recently rated the 'most playable new course in the US' by Golf Digest magazine.

There are numerous stores and shops. The Wharf is nearby with world class bands. There are hundreds of amusements of every kind: water slides, goofy golf, go-carts, and two movie theatres, just to name a small portion of the things to do. Nearby is the Bon Secour National Wildlife Refuge, 4,000 acres of rolling coastal pinelands and tall sand dunes where bird-watchers enjoy a visual feast, especially in the spring and fall.

Payment accepted by personal check or through PAYPAL.

We had a wonderful time this week. Loved watching the activity in the ocean. Quiet area for relaxing. You get extra points for the balcony furniture. We didn't have to look through the railing to see the beach. This was our first condo and we will be back. The central location made it easy to go which ever way the heart desired. Thanks Nat!

Beautiful views and great location!

  • 5 of 5

This is a perfect unit for a couple or small family. My husband and I asked to book at the last minute, and the owner was so accommodating that it was all taken care of in minutes! The condo had everything we needed, and the view from our top floor balcony was breathtaking! The beach is clean and uncrowded and the location to restaurants and local attractions can't be beat. Thanks again for a wonderful stay!

Great Location and Beach Access/View

  • 5 of 5

This was a great choice for our little trip. We wanted a quick weekend getaway with a beachfront view and easy access to an uncrowded beach. That is exactly what we got. The property is on the beach and has its own access. There is a public access area on one side, but it is far enough away that the crowds stayed down there. Larger more modern properties on the other side, but they also have their own beach access so there wasn't any issue with people crowding our beach area. The water was clean as was the seaweed or garbage in the water or piled on the beach. Shopping and dining was also convenient. Some places were in walking distance and some took a quick 5 minute drive. The condo itself was clean and ready when we arrived. Other than food, we didn't need to buy anything. There are some chairs, an umbrella, and other beach stuff in the condo's storage room...or chairs and umbrellas are available for rent on the beach. We spent most of our time on the beach or on the balcony just relaxing. There is a king bed, 2 small bunks, and the couch folds out into a bed. I'd say this would be a good spot for a couple, or a family with 2-3 small children. 4-6 adults could be a tight fit. The condo is an older property so it isn't a "luxury suite" type place, but then again, it is very affordable for the location. We'll definitely stay there again.

Great location just steps from the beach

  • 5 of 5

The condo was very clean and tastefully decorated. We sat out on the balcony the second day and watched the sun rise to our far left. Then that evening we watched it set on the far right while we enjoyed some wine. We saw dolphins two mornings. There was no seaweed or jellyfish in the water, and the sand is ultra-white. The area is not very crowded either and no loud parties. Very peaceful.

What a great place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

It is just as advertised, if not better. Whether one is sitting on the balcony drinking coffee and just taking in the sights and sounds of the beach and water, or down walking in the surf, I can't imagine a better place to enjoy the beach. The sand is very clean and white, and there are many things to do within walking distance. This will be my "home on the beach" from now on.
