Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you for offering up such a great condo. It had all the comforts of home with a fantastic view. The balcony makes for a perfect photography platform among so many other things. The dolphins put on quite a show. I watched probably 2 dozen of them playing right off the sandbar for about 3 hours on Saturday. They were particularly playful. Im pretty sure I got some good shots of them jumping several feet out of the water.



Your place is pretty comfy. The bed is particularly nice...love the extra pillows and dreamy mattress. And the bath towels...I'm going shopping for those tomorrow. Big flat screens and cable are a nice touch for downtime. As are plenty of bath and beach towels. You've really thought the place out well. I felt at home.



But the big draw for me is the balcony. And the huge windows/doors. Can't say the granite counters didn't come in handy either...along with the full kitchen. But it's all about the balcony and you have a winner there.



Looking forward to visiting again.

Beautiful, cozy condo with lots of character!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed here from 10/26-10/29 and we absolutely loved the property! It had everything we needed and more. The bed was heavenly, the kitchen was fully equipped, and the views from the deck were breathtaking. The only negative comment I have was that due to some very windy weather on Friday night, the wind was making the decks outside make very loud rattling siren like noises and we had some trouble sleeping. I would definitely recommend this property and I would stay here again for sure.

Very nice condo! Clean, updated and comfortable!! Beautiful view! Only downside is a tight parking garage making it hard to get in and out of. I would definitely stay again!

Absolutely beautiful condo with an awesome view!

  • 5 of 5

The condo is beautiful and decorated just lovely. The balcony is big and has a beautiful view. Loved being right on the ocean. Floor to ceiling windows in master bedroom and living room was just beautiful. Felt like we were outside even when we were inside. I would recommend this condo with its beautiful location to everyone. I cant think of 1 negative thing to say. Gary was great to deal with. Condo was clean..it was a fantastic vacation! Great location to everything! We will definitely be back.

"Luxury"!!!

  • 5 of 5

Beautifully furnished, clean, convientlly located condo with everything you need! The views off the balcony were the best, and just a few steps down to the beach. The pool is very small and there dragonflies and love bugs everywhere, but we spent our time on the beach anyway-no big deal. I highly recommend this unit!
