We love this unit. Everything we could asked for and just as advertised. Perfect location and view, and the beach and services were great also. Barry and Sherry have the unit in great condition, with everything you could possibly want or need. They are very responsive to any questions and wonderful to work with. Can't wait to come back again.

Wonderful vacation!!!!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and our 4 young kids (10 and under) stayed in this condo for a week and thoroughly enjoyed it! It was decorated beautifully just as the pictures show and was well maintained and very clean. The beds were very comfortable as well! I loved the distance to the beach. We have stayed in condos on the beach from Orange Beach, to Destin to Panama City and even though they were all "on the beach" none of the boardwalks were as short and the beach as close as this, which my kids' little legs appreciated :) Having the two reserved beach chairs was an added bonus and nice to have less to set up. Also, we rented a kayak from the beach attendants one of the days and had so much fun! The proximity to the town was great and the beach was beautiful (although unfortunately we weren't able to enjoy the water as much as we would have like due to huge amounts of seaweed/ sea lice at the time). And because of being a lower rise complex, it was not nearly as crowded as some condos we have stayed at, even despite that we were there over Memorial Day Weekend!! One little thing that I wish the condo had, was a rug in the living area, which would cozy it up just slightly and also help with the travelling sand :) but, otherwise, I wouldn't change a thing! Also, we did have a little issue with the AC not cooling while we were there, but I called Sherry/Barry and they had the condo management crew in our unit within minutes. They were all very responsive and helpful and made sure that the problem was fixed. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay, and will absolutely be back next year!!!!
