My husband and I love to travel, we are in construction and do all our own repairs and cleaning for our rentals. We have 6 grandchildren that live local and we love to share the beach with them. They all are very active swimmers, and into competitive sports.

Please check out our other rental on the ground floor.

VRBO listing # 1099077

Jo Ann Diaz purchased this apartment in 1990

Why Jo Ann Diaz chose Sunset Beach

We chose our Sunset Beach condo because we love the beach and the location it is within 1 hour of our home. Sunset beach is known for its sunsets, the soft white sand and is great for long walks. We have dolphins that swim by daily. We have great sea shell hunting, and parrots that come to our shade trees. You could never be bored. There is wild life abundant. It is a beautiful place to relax and have fun.

What makes this apartment unique

Our beach front property is one of a kind. You could not be closer to the beach anywhere in our area. We are only steps from the privacy of our property to the open sand and beautiful Sunset Beach. We are unique on the beach because we have a beautiful flower garden. We get compliments frequently. The beach side of our property has it's own private walk way to the beach. It is very private, quiet and a great place to relax and read a book. Sitting on the deck drinking your morning coffee and eating breakfast is a great past time. The view of the Gulf is beautiful.

Quiet and picturesque!

  • 3 of 5

This is a small, serviceable apt with a fantastic beachfront location. There was even a small surf break when I was there and it was fun to watch the surfers from the big private deck. The shady garden was a big plus for me because I dont like to bake in the sun so I could sit in the shade and still feel "on the beach". The view is unbeatable and the beach and surrounding neighborhood are so quiet (with the exception of Caddy's and Ka Tiki bar, which both appear to be party central --but are far enough away to not be a bother but close enough that you could walk there if you want a party). Traffic is very light on this small residential pennisula but you are close to amenities--there is a Publix grocery store very close, and a Taco Bus and a new brewery are both within walking distance. The owner Jo Ann was very responsive and easy to deal with.

I'm giving it only 3 stars because it is quite small (I would not want to have more than 2 people staying there unless they are very small children) and the furnishings are very basic and dated/worn. For the price, it could use updating and maintenance. There is also an access gate for the hotel across the street literally right under your bedroom window so you cant sleep with the windows open or the noise is a bother, which is a shame.

But overall I enjoyed my relaxing stay and would stay here again.

Owner's Response: Thank you Emily for your input. Our 1 bedroom rental is perfect for 2 people and that is what we prefer. That is how we advertise our rental. We have another unit on the ground floor that is more suitable for a small family. We do not rent to people who want to party. Our rentals at this location are furnished very nicely with a beach theme. Everything is very clean. The couch in this unit is a very expensive leather queen sleeper if someone happens to need a extra bed. Our living room furniture is beach 50's style, which most people appreciate. We are on the beach, so people do come in and out with wet bathing suits and sand. We do everything possible to accommodate our guest so that they have a great vacation. There is a condo across the street and they have a private gated access which goes between our property and the next door house. We also have our own private gate which eliminates passersby's from entering our property. It is very hard to please everyone, but we try. This is the first 3 star we have ever received in 10 years. Our ratings speak for itself.

Perfect beachside place!

  • 5 of 5

Everything was perfect. So close to the beach that you can sit and drink coffee and watch the waves - we even saw dolphin and manatee! Peaceful beach without too many people. About .25 miles to Caddy's restaurant and bar and about 1 mile walk to grocery store and lots of other restaurants. We will be back! Absolutely heavenly!!

Amazing view...just breathtaking!

  • 5 of 5

This vacation was one of my favorites! The location directly on the beach was fantastic and the garden outside our sliding door was just wonderful and so relaxing. We ate almost every meal outside in order to not miss a minute of the view! Having restaurants, stores and nightlife close, but not too close was perfect. The only thing I would change is that next time we will stay longer... Thank you Jo Ann!!

RIGHT OUT OUR BACK DOOR. DIRECT GULF VIEW/ACCESS
Car: recommended

Walk out the door onto your private deck which overlooks beautiful sunset beach. Located in a very private and tranquil part of the island, you will enjoy a private vacation. Hear the waves from your deck or open the windows at night and let the waves put you to sleep. Hear and see the parrots that visit our trees. We have shade, sun, and serenity to offer. You do not have to cross roads to go to our beach. Walk only 50 feet from the deck directly to the sand and beautiful beach. Glorious sunsets are waiting for you. Natural nature is at your doorstep.

We also have a ground floor unit. VRBO # 1099077. Same location on the beach.

That rental has no steps and easy mobility. Also is great for a family with children.

Nicely decorated with beautiful bright beachy colors and is very clean comfortable and modern. Bring your clothes and everything else is there for you to use. Hardwood/ceramic floors, with ceiling fans in every room. Non smoking and adults are preferred. You are more than welcome to smoke out on the deck and patio area.

There are other 1 bedroom units in the building available. Please feel free to call me for any question.
