About Naomi (Mimi)

I found this sweet condo almost 5 years ago. It was screaming for a chance to have guests come and visit it's lovely ambience. I couldn't resist the opportunity to make it accessible for being a rental in a great complex. The winters are absolutely beautiful from this condo location, but the summers steal the show. The access to the hot tub, pool and beach from this condo location is perfect. I will continue to personally manage and tend to every detail to your stay because you deserve the best on your vacation.

Naomi (Mimi) purchased this condo in 2012

Why Naomi (Mimi) chose Gulf Coast

I personally watched this resort being built back in 1989. It looks like a Cape Cod style home along the North East Coast.. I have loved coming to this beautiful beach over several decades. One can still drive on this unique beach which visitors love to do as they can spread out their towels, umbrellas and have a bonfire to have a great time with the family . Now there is a car free designated area for children on the beach as well. Walk the seawall (1 Mile) and enjoy the restaurants on the Island. See the whitecaps and feel the constant breeze.

What makes this condo unique

I fell in Love with Condo #231 as soon as I walked in and I believe you will too. While standing in the kitchen you can see the water and feel the breeze blowing through the windows. People at the BeachClub are friendly, and they love their exclusive amenities.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Dear Mimi,

We appreciate your prompt reply to our last minute request on a holiday weekend. From Rockport, Tx. all the way to Hollywood, Ca. this has been our finest "VRBO" or "Home Away" experience yet! We love the close proximity to the beach, great dining experiences, and the peacefulness of the condo. If your ever in Austin, look us up, we'd enjoy the opportunity to meet you.

Great Gulf Get-Away

  • 5 of 5

We were delighted when we stepped into the Brassy Dolphin, knowing we were going to spend a week here. I loved the decor--perfectly done. We loved sitting out on the balcony with our coffee in the morning and then walking down to the beach area. We enjoyed the relaxed atmosphere on the island and would definitely return.

Even though the weather was not the best the condo was very comfortable for two people. Everything we needed was there for a fun weekend at the beach.

Beautiful and Relaxing

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I spent 3 nights at the Blue Dolphin. The owner had music playing and light on for our arrival. The code to get in the door is much easier than trying to use a key and you park in a reserved spot right in front. The condo is beautifully decorated, the bed is very comfortable, and the location is great. It is a short walk/drive to the beach where we enjoyed daily walks. We enjoyed an afternoon at the pool/hot tub.

We would definitely stay here again if we come back to this area.

Exceeded expectations

  • 5 of 5

The owner Clearly thinks about everything guests would Want and Need.

Very very nice. I've stayed at many beachclub condos, most are good, but

This one is in a class all by itself.

Hope it's available when I come back for a visit

The condo was clean, well appointed and very comfortable. It was conveniently located just a short walk from the beach. This was our first trip to the area and we are looking forward to returning in the future!

This condo is one of the closest to the beach in the entire Beachclub Condo complex. There is a Resort Hotel a few blocks to the North which has live music outside on the beach seawall. Visit the beach stores in town 1/2 mile away or beachcomb for up to 75 miles on the Seashore National Park. Famous Schlitterbaun Waterpark is just 1 and 1/2 mile away.

If you want shade from noon on till sunset on the balcony and the shortest walk to the sand and beach, this condo is genuinely one of the most beautiful you will find.
