The Palms 316--Luxury Gulf Front Condo at the Palms with Wrap Around Balcony
average rating of 4.8 based on 5 reviews

Loved the setup of rooms, 3 bathrooms and indoor pool. Hated balcony access-ridiculously hard to ope

  • 4 of 5

Had parking lot drainage problems and elevator problems but both were fixed quickly. I was a bit alarmed at first with no staff on duty as to how to report elevator issue. It was a little scary taking my husband down 3 flights of stairs with his walker. But by the time we returned from doctor appointment elevator was fixed. Pools were kept clean and were lovely to use.

Family of 6

  • 5 of 5

My family has returned to this condo for the third time this year. The kitchen is well equipped with all the utensils needed to cook at home. We also love the fact that there are three bathrooms. The grand kids loved the wrap around balcony and I enjoyed the pool being just below us. The owner is great to work with and we look forward to coming back each year.

Family vacation

  • 5 of 5

This was a return visit to this condo and we truly enjoyed the space. The update to the kitchen was an added bonus this year. The area around the pool was great and the exercise room was moved to a much nicer space by the pool area. Planning to return next year!

Light-filled and spacious -- a lovely condo

  • 5 of 5

We had a girls' getaway weekend when busy husbands couldn't come with us, but we plan to return and bring them along another time.

This beautiful, family-owned and loved vacation home is very welcoming and comfortable in addition to being attractive. A west-side end unit on the third floor, there is a sliding door from each bedroom onto the balcony, giving plenty of natural light. There are also two large windows along the side of the living and dining rooms. The beds are comfortably firm and supportive, and sport new and pretty bedding. Everything about the bedrooms and bathrooms was fine; comfortable, attractive, and spotlessly clean.

The kitchen too was great...and huge! I've never seen one better stocked with china, glassware, cutlery and cooking equipment. Everything was perfect.

I especially liked the layout and design of the kitchen/living room...the kitchen is largely out of sight when you are in the living room, because there is a "bend" in the floorplan. When you walk from the kitchen to the living room, you turn to the left a little. This was nice. We couldn't hear the dishwasher (very quiet anyway) or each other very much, if we were in different rooms. This was very practical when someone was on the phone or wanted to nap.

We spent a fair bit of our beach getaway actually on the beach, sunning in the terrific rental beach chairs. In this building, you step off the elevator and walk straight ahead, past the pools, over the boardwalk and onto the beach. How great is that?!

One fun thing about this vacation home is the guest journal, which is left for people to write about their stays. It's a lovely, homey touch to have a guest book -- a nice tradition. You can see how much others have enjoyed their visits, and how much the owners care about people and want them to have a happy time. Through our emails and phone calls I found them to be very easy to work with and very straightforward in their business approach. It was a simple matter to rent this space from them and I appreciated that, especially since I was renting at the last minute and time was short.

You won't regret making the decision to rent this vacation home -- I had a great time and I thank Chuck very much for his prompt replies to every question I had. We'll be back!!
