Updated, Comfortable, clean, and family friendly condo- THIS IS IT! Owner Managed for personal service - YES! Wi-Fi and Keyless, keypad lock too! Deb's Beach Condos are THE BEST beach vacation spot. I have several condos to choose from. I prefer phone calls so I can personally talk to guests and assist them in their vacation plans.

Ask about my ground floor and 10th floor condos in the 'B' building too! Also have a larger 2 bedroom condo at Coral Reef 1305.

Summerhouse has a 'Beach Wheelchair' available to people that need the help to get out on the sand!

Our condominium is tastefully decorated. We continually maintain and upgrade our condo to assure the perfect getaway for you and your family. Our condo includes new furniture, a leather recliner in the living room, large flat screen TVs, free Wi-Fi and a KEYLESS keypad door lock for your convenience.

You can enjoy the ocean waves from your private balcony that opens from the living room, or via the wall of windows in the master bedroom. Even the guest room has an oceanview.

Our 6th floor balcony overlooks the two pools; one is heated in the winter. There is a kiddie pool, hot tub and a beachfront gazebo. The complex is very family-oriented. There are gas grills and picnic tables for your use. The lobby has tables and couches to relax at, as well as video games, a large screen TV and pool tables for your enjoyment.

The unit can sleep 5-7 guests. The master suite has a king size bed. The guest room has a queen and a twin bed, and a pull out sofa in the livingroom. For infants or toddlers, we have a pack 'n play for your use in the guest closet. Each bedroom has cable and flat screen TVs. We have a stereo in the living room, VHS and DVD players, as well as a few movies, novels and games for your enjoyment.

For extra activities, enjoy tennis, racquetball or shuffleboard - all equipment is supplied at the front desk. Rent a scooter, take a banana boat ride, parasaile, or just enjoy sitting under our large beachfront gazebo.

Whatever you choose, you will have a memorable vacation!

We do not rent to singles under 25; No pets or smoking in the unit please!!

I have two additional condos at Summerhouse; a ground floor Condo 110B and Condo 1009B. These units have about 100 sf more space, larger balconies and a westerly view and are available for slightly higher rates. You can see a complete description, rental rates and pictures for 110B under listing #383985.

About Debby Renken

Our dream vacation has always been the beach. We are blessed to have such a wonderful second home on 'The Worlds Most Beautiful Beach'! We visit ourselves 4-5 times a year and are happy to share it with you..... We have done a lot of updates and appreciate you treating it like your own. Feel free to share your comments under the review section.

Debby Renken purchased this Condo in 2007

Why Debby Renken chose Lower Grand Lagoon

We chose this location due to the beautiful white sand and the clear, clean water. I had visited Ocean City, MD and Myrtle Beach and really liked these beaches. My favorite thing to do is walk or sit on the sand, listen to the ocean, and watch the birds, boats and fish.

What makes this Condo unique

On Thomas Drive, we are close to everything, yet not in the middle of the traffic and congestion in some areas that have been over built with high density buildings. We live in Pennsylvania and normally fly Southwest Airlines for great rates!

                                                                Great condo! Very clean and easy access to the beach!

                                                                Tracy H.Tuscumbia, AL

                                                                I stayed a week in this condo with my husband, son, and parents. We had plenty of room to eat, sleep, and relax. The condo was very clean and well furnished. The view from the balcony was absolutely beautiful! The access to the beach was super easy... Just five steps or a ramp and your toes are in the sand!!! The owner is very good at communication through email and phone. She answered all of my questions promptly and accurately. The condo is also close to great restaurants, shopping, go carts, Mini golf, arcades, and other fun. I highly recommend staying here and plan to return for our next beach vacation next year!!!

                                                                Owner's Response:

I do my best to provide all the information and comforts they need when they stay in our condos. Having multiple condos gives me the ability to offer a variety of choices to meet the needs of my guests. Thank you for your positive comments and I hope you can stay with us again! Debby

                                                                Condo was nice but very expensive. It needs a bit of updating and we had a few problems with roaches, which was no big deal for me because I'm an entomologist; however, for a squeamish 13 year-old and her Mom, they were not to thrilled with large blattodea insects in the house. Condo had a great view and was in a nice location. Only one elevator for ten floors, however. With one elevator, we had to wait in lines on more than one occassion to take up all of our beach necessities. Condo was lacking basic needs for a week, we had to stock up on toilet paper, soap, shampoo, our own towels etc. The remote needed new batteries, which we replaced. If you are an avid beach goer, this is a good place. If you are like me and do not like large crowds, over-inflated prices for everything, and hate shopping, pick anothr place in a remote mountainous area, you'll have a lot more fun at a fraction of the cost. It's only average due to the high price, otherwise I'd give it a 4 out of 5.

                                                                Owner's Response:

                                                                4th of July week is the busiest on the beach - if you do not like crowds, that is definitely not the time to go to the beach LOL. This is a private condo, not a hotel or resort - as stated in our guest info, we provide starter supplies of toilet paper, paper towels and bar soap. You will need additional supplies for weeklong visits. I do keep liquid hand soap at each sink, refills, light bulbs and batteries in the condo for our guests, as needed. This condo sleeps 5-7, and we stock it with 8 towels/washcloths. There is a washer and dryer in the unit if you want to do laundry during your stay. Please know if there are any issues, or if anything is not perfect during your stay, call me ! I will do everything in my power to correct any issues so you can have a relaxed, enjoyable vacation!

                                                                In this case, this review is the first I heard of any concerns. Our condo has an exterminator that comes regularly, and I have asked him to do an extra visit to address this issue. We are actively involved with maintaining and updating our condo and aim to create a comfortable, clean vacation home for our guests to enjoy.

                                                                Beautiful condo, clean, well furnished and well stocked. Comfortable bed. Great location. Awesome view of the beach right off the balcony. Debby was great to work with and made everything easy, she even checked in while we were there to make sure everything was ok. The only problem we had was with the internet, but that wasn't Debby's fault, it was Comcast. Really enjoyed our stay there and we are hoping for another visit.

We put a lot of thought and effort in furnishing our condo for your comfort. Many of our guests appreciate our beds and high thread count sheets. Look forward to you staying with us again!

                                                                Great Relaxing Experience

                                                                We have had the most incredible time here at The Summerhouse. This rental has been everything advertised and more. Very clean, spacious and beautifully decorated. The view is incredible. Everything in the room has worked great; including the wifi (which doesn't often work well in a lot of places). The owners called the evening of our arrival to see if things were ok. This location is near some great restaurants too.

                                                                We've already decided to come again.

                                                                I'm glad you loved our condo and your visit to Summerhouse. Our goal is to provide a comfortable, relaxing environment for our guests. Your positive comments reinforce we have succeeded in our goal! Look forward to seeing you in the future.

                                                                MUCH Needed Time Off

                                                                Everyone before me has pretty much said.. everything is WONDERFUL! Convenient, beautiful inside and out, very clean, and incredibly comfortable. It's been said by others, but I must repeat, the beds are fantastic. Nothing better than a great bed and you're trying to get some much needed relaxation. Everything you could need is in the unit, more than we thought! Make sure to go through things before you shop. We ended up having some doubles of certain items because there were so many little things included that we assumed wouldn't be from past experiences with other places.

                                                                We were lucky enough to be there the same week Debby was in town. It was so good to meet you, Debby! Thank you again for the restaurant recommendations. Dusty's and Bonefish were by far the two best places we went to. Such good food at both, with such different atmospheres. We felt lucky to have insider information :)

                                                                Cannot recommend this unit enough! Go see it for yourselves! You won't be disappointed!

                                                                This if a beautiful Condo. Very tastefully decorated, very clean and fully furnished. Beds are very confortable. It was great having a TV in livingroom as well as both bedrooms. Condo is only a short walk to elevator and garbage drop is right outside the front door. Very convient. Summerhouse has luggage carts and grocery carts which is very helpful taking things to and from your car. Swimming pools are very nice and outside landscaping is beautiful. We loved the balconey which over looked all outdoor fun and ocean. This is a very quite location. Owner is very easy to work with. We will return to this condo in the Fall of 2013.
