We loved this condo.

  • 5 of 5

The condo was fantastic and we hope to make it an annual visit. The only complaint we have was the couch and chairs could have been more firm. We have back issues and struggled to get comfortable because one would sink so far down. That may not be an issue for other folks. Everything else was perfect at the condo and we highly recommend it.

Loved the condo but hated hurricane Nate

  • 5 of 5

The condo was great. Hurricane Nate, not so much. We only got to stay 1 night and then had to leave for the hurricane. Bill was great to work with and we are making arrangements to return next year and hopefully stay a full week.

Great condo

  • 5 of 5

Girls beach trip with 6 ladies. We had plenty of room. The patio was nice and we sat out there when we weren't on the beach. This ground floor unit was super handy for going back and forth to the beach. The interior is very nice and comfy. I definitely recommend this condo. If you are trying to decide - I say "rent it!".

My Happy Place

  • 5 of 5

My family stayed in Bill's condo at the end of August. We enjoyed it so much! As we traveled home, I booked it again for next year. I am going to share some things I really liked. The kitchen had everything you need to cook a meal. We cooked meals and also ate at some restaurants. The condo is in a great location for eating places and shopping. I thought we would go to the outlet mall in Foley, but we had pretty days every day at the beach. I love the ground floor condo unit on the corner. It gives you more privacy. The beach chairs and wagon Bill provides is a big plus. He also has beach towels, but we did bring our beach towels. Every bedroom has a tv with a dvd including the den. Our whole group enjoyed unwinding at the end of the day with movies we brought. Many books are in the condo you can read. It has a washer and dryer. I was amazed that we never ran out of hot water when our group got ready to go eat. The condo is located directly on the beach in a beautiful location. He made everything so easy to check in and out with great organization. Thank you for letting us stay at your condo, Bill! My family is looking forward to being there next year!
