FANTASTIC!

  • 5 of 5

The absolute best experience! We had a blast, the condo was perfect, lots of chairs/umbrellas/toys for the beach! It was a very quiet and relaxing trip(even with our 2 toddlers)! Bill is a pleasure to work with and it's obvious he truly cares about his guests. We will definitely be returning in the near future. Thank you bill and family for allowing us to rent your condo and make memories on our first family vacation!

Great location in a quiet, ground floor end unit.

  • 4 of 5

I have vacationed in the Florida panhandle for most of my life, but this was my first time visiting Perdido Key and Shipwatch Condos. The ground floor, end unit was perfection. One concern was that we would not have an ocean view, but this isn't the case. You get the best of both worlds by having your own "backyard" area, as well as a beautiful view of the horizon and ocean. This was our first beach vacation since having a baby, and we will never rent anything other than ground floor again if possible. The ease of walking directly to your front door without the headache of waiting for a hot, crowded elevator was amazing! The condo itself is spacious and fit our two families and toddlers nicely with plenty of seating in the living room, as well as nice-sized dining tables both indoors and on the patio. The under-counter ice maker was icing on the cake and prevented us from having to purchase ice and find freezer space to store it. The patio storage was stocked with plenty of beach chairs, umbrellas and a wagon that came in very handy to carry everything to the beach. The beach itself was clean, and we didn't have to fight the crowds that you do in other areas of the panhandle. Bill, the owner, was extremely courteous and always promptly replied to any inquires. We definitely plan a return trip.

Best VRBO condo I've ever had

  • 5 of 5

Where do I start? Beds were super comfy, kitchen was extremely well stocked, there was a storage outside FULL of ocean necessities and a grill. Umbrellas, chairs, boards, and a wagon to pull it all. Furniture was comfortable, wifi worked great and Bill was sooo nice. The complex itself was quiet and the beach wasn't overly crowded. It's basically the PERFECT vacation spot. And I had friends in 3 other condos In same complex and this one was by far the nicest so if you are trying to decide which one there you go. I brought a carload of stuff I typically need for a weeks stay and didn't use half of it. Kitchen had everything Including nice pots and pans and knives that actually cut stuff. I can't rave enough about it! We WILL be back!
