About Marjorie Philippe

Hello I have been coming to Florida ever since I was a child . My Parents retired in this area from the Chicago area 40 years ago . I visited them as often as I could. I purchased this condo so we would have a wonderful place for our family to vacation and visit my parents. I chose this unit for it's location, and size. as we stay here for one to two months a year I also wanted it located in a quieter part of the building , with easy access to the stairs. and elevator. Over the years we have totally redone our unit, sometimes with a professional decorator , and sometimes just plain hard work. I do hope you enjoy our efforts and take care of our home. I tried to keep comfort in mind. I am a RN oncology nurse, I lived in the Chicago area, my husband and myself retired to Fairfield Glade Tn. a planed community with mostly retied people from all over the USA and beyond. Thank you for listening .

Marjorie Philippe purchased this Condo in 1995

                                                                  Spacious Unit Right on the Beach

                                                                  Crystal R.Gainesville, FL

                                                                  The unit is a spacious three bedroom 2 bathroom unit with a well stocked kitchen (every utensil and appliance that you need is there) and nice televisions in all the rooms. Not ocean front but has a huge balcony that wraps around the south side of the building to provide an ocean view. It also means your room is not directly above the pool deck which can have a lot of activity on it. Another great aspect of this room is the two master suites. We traveled with grandma and grandpa and they loved having their own private room with a bathroom. The other bonus to this room- it is on the first floor right next to the stair well. There is one elevator that services the entire resort so being able to run up and down was very convenient.

                                                                  Absolutely love the pool deck with direct beach access. Chris is a private contractor that rents wooden beach chairs with cushions and umbrellas that he places every morning. I though this service was worth every penny as you have plenty of towels, toys and drinks to carry down every day. Being able to lay down on a comfy chair in the shade was luxurious. There was an ice cream truck that pulled right up to the pool every day at 3:45 and the kids just loved it. Perfect time for a cold sugary snack after swimming for hours.

                                                                  Gorgeous ocean with gentle rolling waves, clear water and lots of cool wildlife. We saw dolphins, sting ray and hunted for seashells. The resort has a private pier which was an incredible bonus and a first for me. There is a second pier about a mile and a half away which made for a nice morning run on the beach without getting lost.

                                                                  We checked out Smuggler's Cove mini golf and had a great time. We went late night on a week day and there were still people playing so I could just imagine how busy it would be on a weekend or earlier in the evening. The only restaurant we ate at was Osaka take out- delicious Thai food. All our other meals we cooked in the room, it was just so convenient. Our other day trip was The Florida Aquarium in Tampa. It was a 41 minute drive and we had a great time. Worth the trip.

                                                                  Others have raved and I have to agree that the front desk staff is just great. So knowledgable and ready to help you with anything you may need. Our entire experience was outstanding from booking the room with Marjorie to checking out this morning. We plan on coming back next summer.
