Location-Yes! Average quality condo

  • 3 of 5

Great location-easy walking to the beach. Nice hot tub, it was too cold for the pool. Very small decks, so don't plan on hanging out on them. Limited kitchen amenities. No hot pads?? Or kitchen towels?? Not even a decent knife to cut food. One kitchen trash bag left for 5 days with 5 people. 5 dishwasher pods left-which was challenging since there wasn't an abundance of plates and glasses for serving 3 meals a day. Fair on cleanliness of condo. We couldn't get wi-fi so called maintenance (tried to call owner and manager but didn't hear from either). Maintenance responded well (great to have a Spanish speaker or else it would be hard to communicate) by bringing a "hot spot". It helped irradically which was disappointing. Owner was slow or absent with responses to questions. Five adults fit well, we appreciated each bedroom having its own bath. Water pressure was terrible but that is beyond control of the owner I'm sure. We greatly appreciated being able to bring dogs (there is an additional fee). Comfortable beds. Couch seating for 5, dining table seating for 6. Three flights of stairs to condo, no elevator. We were fine with that, but it may be difficult for some people. Dryer didn't work so we were unable to dry towels prior to leaving.

Great condo

  • 5 of 5

Had a great time staying at this good size condo. 3 bedrooms and baths gave our family plenty of room. Very quiet during our stay. Close to beach with a good view of the gulf. I spent many hours on the balcony or on the complex's deck and just watched the surf.

Can't beat the proximity to the beach!

  • 5 of 5

The location of this condo is amazing! We had a 3.5 year old and an 18 month old and walking to and from the beach with all our belongings was painless. Great waves for boogie boarding and incredibly fine/soft sand for building sand castles. The unit was clean and functional with lots of beach toys. Could use some maintenance here and there, but that goes for any property this close to salt water. The pool was great and the beach tent rentals were key for reducing sunburns on full beach days. Highly recommend, can't wait to return!

Very nice condo in an excellent location.

  • 4 of 5

A lovely condo in an excellent location. It is literally a 5 minute walk from the front door to the sand. The views from the balconies (there are 3 small balconies) are quite spectacular. The pool is nice and the staff around the property are very friendly and helpful. The trek up to the 3rd floor was hard going on arrival and departure but on a daily basis the stairs are no big deal. The condo was perfectly comfortable for 7 people (5 adults, 2 children). The kitchen is well equipped and served us well for cooked breakfasts. The only downside is the low water pressure in the showers.

You can sleep with the sounds of the surf!

  • 5 of 5

That's how close this condo is to the beach. All in all, this was a great vacation for our family of six adults. The set-up was just perfect for us. Everyone had their own bed and there was plenty of room for all of us to gather in the common space. The kitchen was a little small but well-equipped and we were able to make several meals. The owner, Laura, gets an A+ on quick communication and response to issues. For some reason, the grill was missing from the balcony when we arrived. I assumed we were just out of luck, but after a quick email to her to let her know, a new grill was delivered within a couple hours. Amazing! Our family loved that the sand was just a few steps from the outside of our condo. The pool area and hot tub were very popular with our group as well. If we find ourselves on SPI again in the future, we would absolutely book this same unit again.

Close to beach action; 50 yards to beach

  • 4 of 5

Great view. 50 yards to beach. Great beachfront lounge area. Tight security- so appreciated. Pack light if you are staying in the third floor master suite; heavy suitcase difficult to maneuver up small spiral staircase.
