Wonderful view with comfortable pretty furnishings and decor!

  • 5 of 5

Loved sitting on porch making friends with neighbor Col. Sid Grimes with whom we had much in common being military family. One thing.....when you hang a heavy mirror be sure the hardware is sufficient to maintain its weight. We can send pictures if there's any doubt. Overall everything was great and I thank you Darlene for being so cooperative and patient as we were checking in about those codes. Perfect condo for a perfect time!! Thank you Darlene!! You're doing a great job!😎�

Sand Pebbles

  • 4 of 5

The unit has a great view of the Gulf and is centrally located near shopping and dining.

Things I liked: pet-friendly, clean and cool, ample parking, deck and porch

Things I didn't like: the traffic on scenic Hwy 98, the mist-mash of plates and utensils in the unit

The unit is old but clean. I prefer beach side, so most of my complaints arise from having to cross Hwy 98, or look across Hwy 98 to enjoy the Gulf view.

I would not rent the unit again, but this is not a complaint against the unit or the owner, who was great, but more that I did not like the location.

Nice location. Great ocean view.

  • 3 of 5

The location was great. Enjoyed the swing and ocean view. However, the unit itself was in need of maintenance. Unit also was not as clean as it should have been upon arrival. Darlene was easy to work with, but for the price I paid, I did not get my money worth. Will be renting elsewhere next winter.

Owner's Response: The renter brought 3 maintenance issues to my attention; the front door was sticking, a dresser drawer was off of the runner, and a towel rack was loose in the bathroom. All were all promptly repaired. The cleaning service I use typically does an exceptional job. This renter complained, so I offered to have it re-cleaned , but my offer was declined.
