Fabulous accommodations!!!!!

  • 5 of 5

My girlfriends and I rented this condo for our stay during the Seabreeze Jazz Festival. There were three of us and this condo was perfect. It actually sleeps six comfortably and has two full bathrooms. We did everything from shopping to laying on the beach, to cooking in for dinner and wine, to dining out, to attending the concert.

If I could rate this unit higher than 5 stars I definitely would.

Cleanliness - EXCELLENT


Convenience - EXCELLENT

Location - EXCELLENT

Professionalism - EXCELLENT


Cara is wonderful to work with from start to finish. She responds promptly to any questions you may have and is very efficient with her communication regarding your stay. The entire process from booking to check out was effortless and clear.

This property is within walking distance of everything you could possibly need (shopping, restaurants, Target, Walmart, entertainment). And most importantly it’s right on the beach!! It’s perfect if all you want is a beach getaway where you cook for your family each day and never leave the property or if you prefer dining out everyday.

The kitchen is well equipped with the essentials. Cable in the living and bedroom, WiFi available.

The decor is absolutely beautiful, very relaxing beach/tropical but not cheesy. Bedding was very comfortable. Had a good nights rest each night.

If you’re looking for a clean, well equipped, top of the line condo, on the beach, that matches value for your money, no need to look any further, book your dates and get ready to have a fabulous time!!!!

I’ll definitely be returning and currently am trying to plan dates to return with family members.

Thank you Cara for a wonderful experience!!!

Owner's Response: Wow -- have you ever considered becoming a professional blogger/travel writer? I don't think I could have done a better job describing all the things we love about our condo and its location if I'd written this review myself! I am thrilled to hear how much you all enjoyed your stay. Sounds like a great girl trip. Thanks so much for taking the time to write the great review. I look forward to having you back again soon, with your girlfriends or your family.

We really enjoyed staying in this condo. The view is awesome!! Located in a very good area. We were able to walk to Pier Park & shop. Right on the beach, loved sitting on the balcony at night & listening to the waves. Perfect place!!! Hopefully we will be back soon.

Excellent renter and the condo was perfect!

  • 5 of 5

Took my 14 year old daughter and 2 of her friends to PCB for the 4th of July and stayed here. They loved the condo! It had everything we needed and it was a very comfortable stay. Everything was in new and great condition. There was plenty of beach chairs and equipment to make the beach great. Cara the owner warned that being on the 23rd floor we might get slow elevators, but not once did we have any issue or had to wait long. The view from the balcony was amazing and seeing the fire works from it over the pier and water was breathtaking. Next year this place will be at the top of my list for staying at.

Owner's Response: Taking 3 teenage girls to the beach for 4th of July, I'm pretty sure you should be voted Dad of the Year! We really do have the absolute best views on the beach for watching the fireworks on Independence Day and New Years's Eve. I'm so happy to hear that you all enjoyed your stay with us. One minor correction: the elevators themselves aren't slow; but during Peak Season, the wait for elevators can be slower, even though each tower has 3 of them. I usually recommend avoiding the elevators during check-in and check-out times to avoid the long line of people trying to use them all at once. I'm glad you had no issues with them. You were great guests, and we look forward to hosting you again for your next beach trip!
