Perfect beach getaway!

  • 5 of 5

Penny was very responsive and pleasant. Her home was perfect for our family of 5 (2 adults and 3 kids ages 13, 12, & 10). It was very clean and had everything we needed from plenty of towels to beach supplies. The location was also perfect. We are hoping to return next summer for 2 weeks.

A perfect place to relax and unwind! Clean spacious condo w shaded balcony just steps from the beach

  • 4 of 5

Great dog friendly location on the beach side of the road( although not direct beachfront)within easy walking distance to several restaurants and a mini mart/liquor store. The free covered parking was an added bonus. Downsides: 3rd floor walk up with several flights of stairs and no elevators( although only a real issue on check in/checkout days and grocery shopping days); a little bit noisy when all units are occupied as sound proofing is not great, and....dogs are not allowed on the beach (we discovered that few beaches in Florida are pet friendly). However, overall the area is quite dog friendly with several dog walking areas and an off leash dog park just down the street. Also, we found 3 dog friendly beaches within a 1/2 hour drive. Overall, a great experience.

Relaxing and beautiful

  • 5 of 5

This is not our first stay at this property it's maintained very well and the owner is more than accommodating. There are no surprises the condo looks exactly like the picture. You will be sure to enjoy the entire experience and a big plus the ocean is just a few steps away as is many restaurants.

Best beach vacation

  • 5 of 5

My family and I had an awesome stay at Penny's, it was everything we hoped for. Indian rocks beach was beautiful, and only steps away from the condo... White sands and shallow waters great for our little ones.

The condo was very well equipped, and furnished well... Clean, very clean.

Many local restaurants to try that are walking distance.

We will definitely recommend this place to our family and friends, thank you for allowing us to stay in your home Penny.

wonderful and restful vacation !

  • 5 of 5

Thank you Penny for having allowed both my husband and I to stay at your beautiful condo on the beach! We had a wonderful and relaxing much needed vacation. Your condo was what we needed. The unit was very clean , fully and tastefully decorated.... above any expectation! We were surprised just to see how fully equipped this unit ! All one needs to bring is their bathing suits.....literally!

Steps away from the calm waters of the Gulf made this stay most relaxing. No need to walk blocks and blocks .... or drive your car to beaches. There is one little inconvenience and that is having to climb all the steps equivalent to a third floor unit....especially with groceries. It was great exercise for us but may be an issue for some elderly tenants, or people with some disabilities. People can be their own judge of this. Other than this....all else was just perfect! Thanks again for allowing us to stay here. God willing....we would love to come back soon . |Anne Marie & Serge from Montreal, Canada

Beach Vacation

  • 3 of 5

We spent a week at this condo and had a fabulous time! The condo was fully stocked with more than what one would expect. Two things to note....walls are thin and second bedroom has a queen size bed not 2 twin beds but we managed to make it work! The owner Penny was very quick to respond to any questions.

Owner's Response: I do apologize about the second bedroom, we got a new bed for that bedroom just before you got there and was not able to update any pictures before hand. I apologize for the inconvenience this may have caused. Hope you still enjoyed your stay! Thank you! Penny
