The best!

  • 5 of 5

1209 West was everything we expected. Clean, close to everything you could possibly need and felt just like home. Mitch was absolutely awesome. We had 2 problems upon arriving at the unit, which neither were a big deal but Mitch resolved very quickly. Wifi was down and cable wouldn't work in the living room area. Mitch handled those for us while we were out enjoying the beach. I couldn't have asked for a better experience with both the condo and the owner.

Other than a couple of days with Nate we couldn't have ask for anything any better. The condo was absolutely wonderful. The decor was beautiful and very pleasant. We will be planning another stay in your condo.

Thank you so much

Couldn't have asked for a better condo. Perfect location. Perfect level. Perfect decor. Amazing view. Perfectly decorated. The beds slept great! Resort was clean and well maintained. Check in/out was seamless. As always the beach and water were incredible. If i had to find something wrong with this condo, I simply couldn't. I really hope this unit is available for our next trip next year. Thanks Mitch, for a great week!

Nicely decorated, beautiful views

  • 5 of 5

Just spent a week in this unit. This is our third consecutive year vacationing in PCB, the first time in this unit, but have stayed in another unit almost identical to this. It is a clean, spacious, nicely decorated corner unit. You have unobstructed breathtaking views from your balcony, as the next high rise is pretty far down the beach. The 3 BRs are spread out so everyone has privacy. We had 3 adult couples in our unit which was very comfortable. The dinner table only seats 4, but there are 3 stools at the counter. The 2 rental beach chairs and umbrella is a nice perk, although the people running the rental stand do not keep an accurate log of who they assign chairs to, as several days there were people in our chairs and we had to move to another location. The pool is large and beautiful. When I booked the unit back in the beginning of this year, I was told there would be additional beach chairs inside the unit that we could take to the beach for the rest of our group. Upon arrival, there were no additional beach chairs. I called Trent and the next morning he delivered 4 brand new chairs to us. I also mentioned that the chair on the balcony was damaged, and he brought us a replacement, so we were very impressed by that!

Just a few things that could make the stay a little more comfortable: there were no dish cloths, so we had to use a bath wash cloth to hand wash dishes that we couldn't fit in the dishwasher. We like to cook dinners and breakfasts and some of the cookware/utensils could definitely use an update. Hooks in the bathroom would be a nice touch to hang bath robes, PJs, bathing suits, etc. Also, the shower water gets extremely hot - just an FYI, as this could be dangerous for families with young children. The wi-fi password that's hanging on the wall is incorrect, but we were able to figure it out by looking at the modem (not sure everyone would know to do this). I'm not writing this as a complaint, but I realize you may not even know there is a problem unless a tenant informs you.

All in all, I would definitely recommend this unit, as it is clean, spacious, nicely decorated and convenient to everything. We had a fabulous vacation, as we always do in PCB!

Beautiful condo - outstanding location

  • 5 of 5

The condo was just beautiful! Thanks Mitch for sharing your home with us. The style and décor are that of a true beach home & really enhanced our experience. I should also mention the condos are well manicured and kept up and have onsite security. The pools were also very large and not rowdy or crowded when we were there. The view from the condo is just breathtaking and the location is fantastic. You can hear the ocean at night even with the sliders closed. When sitting on the balcony you can hear the ocean and the sounds of the live entertainment from Pier Park. You do need to be prepared to walk quite a bit. The parking was not an issue at all, but it is across the street with a skywalk connecting the condos and then you need to walk to the elevator bank then down to the end of the hall (loved being at the end though, very private). The beach was just beautiful, soft white sand and the water was so clear, I was really surprised by that. We saw various fish in the water every day. There are 2 beach chairs included but that was kind of a fiasco so we didn't use them. They are about 6" next to other beach chairs so you either have to want to be that close to strangers, or hope the people around you don't show up. Plus the beach attendants aren't prompt about setting up and often times tear down earlier than we would have wanted to leave. We tipped them for the chairs but it was the worse $20 we spent, they gave us a crummy location for the week then we found out they actually told us the wrong chairs were ours. We brought our own chairs & sat near the public beach which was right next door, a real bonus. The one thing we didn't like was the constant helicopter tours that go up and down the beach, they really diminish the beach atmosphere. Also another surprise was the cruising that goes on every day & night with cars cranking up their subwoofers so loud the whole building vibrates, I'm not sure what the obsession is but it happens every day. Highly recommend Dusty's restaurant and Oishi's for reasonable prices & great food. Pineapple Willie's was delicious but the prices are higher. Also, walk the pier at dusk, we saw the dolphins feeding right off the pier & a fisherman catch a shark! It was just amazing, we had a fantastic experience! We also rented JetSki's through PCB rentals (the hut at the condo), you need to go to the marina to go on the tour but it is a 2 hour tour & totally worth it!
