About April Salter

We love Mexico Beach and spend as much time here as we can. Though our kids are mostly grown(!) we still enjoy family time here. We love the fishing and boating out in the Gulf and spend our days fishing in St. Joe Bay, collecting shells along the beach and looking at the stars at night. Tommy T's Ice Cream and Game Room (kids fun!) is right across the street, so we often buy an ice cream cone and then walk out on the fishing pier to see what the fisherman are catching.

April Salter purchased this condo in 2010

What makes this condo unique

This condo has it all -- a large swimming pool with plenty of lounge chairs, a short walk to the beach, and a beautiful view of the canal to enjoy while you sip on a margarita on the balcony.

Chris and I have painted almost every room of the condo to soothing sea colors and enjoyed designing a mosaic sea glass tile mirror for the kitchen. This is our home away from home and we hope you'll enjoy it as much as we do.

Guestbook comments from the owner

April, we have totally enjoyed our stay here and will be back. The evenings at the pier, beach and a trip to Cape San Blas to the end of the road in the state park and found the beach all to our selves. What a great lifestyle here. This place is a great home away from home. I almost don't want to tell anyone else about Mexico Beach, what friendly small town atmosphere it is. Thanks again.

Fun time

  • 4 of 5

Our family enjoyed staying at the Dream Catcher. We really enjoyed the pool with the walk in area. At this time of year (September) we really had the whole Condo plex to ourselves. We enjoyed waking around the lagoon and cooking out one night. The condo was clean and comfortable. Everything was there that we needed. A great place to stay.

The condo was everything we needed !

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed the area and the condo had everything we needed. It makes beaching so much easier to have chairs and towels already included. Thanks for working with us on re-scheduling when Irma was lurking.

Making great memories! :)

Wonderful place!!!

  • 5 of 5

This place was wonderful for many reasons! The beaches are stunningly beautiful, the apartment is located within walking distance of the pier, it’s not beach front but it has an amazing and relaxing view. It absolutely had everything we needed and more! All we really needed to take was our clothes. Super comfortable, beautifully decorated and the most important thing for me: super clean!

However, what impressed us the most was the owner. April was amazing! We went there fleeing from hurricane Irma (we live in Miami). When I requested to book the place April replied to me right away, she was in constant contact with me after that. She was very attentive and provided us with valuable support. We truly look forward to go back on “vacation mode” so we can really enjoy everything Mexico Beach has to offer!! And we’ll definitely contact April to rent one of her properties (she has bigger accommodations, which is perfect to go with our friends).

Vacation at Mexico Beach , Florida

  • 4 of 5

Our family had a lovely time at Mexico Beach. The condo Dream Catcher was nice. The only problems I would comment on was the alligator that we discovered in the Lagoon that appeared after the two days of rain we had . My son has pictures and he still fished a bit but with caution. Next were that the condo had carpet . It gets pretty dirty . The only other thing was the pillows need to be changed . I washed pillow covers but still bought a new one. The restaurants were good and people very friendly. we enjoyed the beach and chasing sand crabs with flashlights at night and talking to many people from all around . It was also a quiet place and felt secure. All in all a great time and would do it again.

Owner's Response: Thank you for letting me know of the things that you enjoyed about the condo and Mexico Beach and also about issues you experienced. I only wish you would have let me know of your concerns during your stay so that we could have addressed them! We checked in with you early in your visit to ask if everything was satisfactory, but unfortunately, we were not aware of your concerns. It is true that during the busy summer season, the carpets can get stained or other issues can arise. Immediately after I read your review, Chris and I went to the condo to look at the carpets and pillows. We did note some stains in the high traffic areas, so we had the carpets cleaned immediately. However, I am frankly stumped about your comments related to pillows. I am a picky sleeper and I love comfortable pillows, so we intentionally provide lots of options for our guests. In addition to four pillows on each of the beds, we also have extra pillows in the closets. We have foam pillows, bamboo pillows, feather pillows, king sized and regular sized. I looked at every one of them and while I did see one pillow that you might say had a slight stain on it, the rest were all in excellent condition. That one pillow may have been left by a previous guest because it did not have a pillow protector on it, as all of our other ones do and you certainly had plenty of options to choose from. So, consider me stumped by this one. Again, in the future when you visit a vacation rental, I encourage you to communicate with the owner or manager so you can ensure your needs are met and that you have nothing but positive memories. .
