About the property

Beachfront sleeps 6 Family friendly!

A treasure located right on the beach, this beautiful condo will be your favorite vacation place. Relax in one of the chairs on the ocean front balcony, It feels like you're on the beach without getting your feet sandy. Florence is walking distance to some of the best local spots, and the Metro stops right in front of the building. Free Indoor parking, free WIFI, on site laundry, secure gated pool, hot tub and beach entrance are but a few perks you will enjoy as our guest. We have a shower station with a hose just beyond the gate so you can wash everything off before heading back to the condo.

Decorated in the style of the tropical Bahamas, you will feel right at home while enjoying the fantastic view the 5th floor affords you from the comfortable sofa or the balcony. The living area has a ceiling fan, flat screen TV, DVD & stereo.

A fully equipped kitchen allows you the convenience of dining in as you choose. Just bring your own food and beverage items. We have a blender, coffee pot, toaster, dishes & pretty much whatever you need to prepare meals during your stay.

You will sleep like a baby on the queen bed fitted with luxurious sheets & bedding. The bedroom has a large wall mounted flat screen TV with a DVD, a wireless phone and ceiling fan. We also keep an extra fan just in case you would like it. The A/C works great.

For the kids, there is a nice twin bunk bed alcove and also queen sofa sleeper with a memory foam topper so it's actually comfortable..

Our spacious bathroom comes with plenty of nice soft towels, beach towels and a blow dryer.

Enjoy the loungers in the pool area, take a dip, or relax in the hot tub, the choice is YOURS!

The beach is just a few short steps down the sand path beyond the gate.

Beach chairs, 2 fold up beach chairs, 2 boogie boards, an umbrella & a cooler that are all waiting for you to use while you are here. Just grab your suit, sunscreen and come on down!

We are happy to arrange any special needs for you as well. Anniversaries, birthdays, tours, fishing guides, even grocery shopping can be pre-arranged to make your stay exactly what you deserve. Even if you just want to know where to have the best mexican food, we are happy to help. Our personal service is what sets us apart from the ordinary rental.

Please take a look at our other condo reviews under the owner section. We just got this rental and have been updating it so it's extra nice. Pets will be considered.

Awesome condo!

  • 5 of 5

Owners very easy to work with and accommodating. Great view, clean, and we were even able to catch a glimpse of the fireworks from the balcony. This condo is definitely on my list when we return.

Perfect for our family of 4!

  • 5 of 5

This property was perfect for our family of 4! We had plenty of room even with our teenage daughters. There were ample towels and beach towels provided. We cooked all our meals and had everything we could possibly need, even a crockpot, in the kitchen.

We did purchase a sponge to do the dishes with and brought extra trash sacks (two were provided), extra toilet paper (good thing we did because there was only one roll), and extra paper towels (one roll was provided and it was plenty).

We used the chairs and boogie boards provided. They were great! We brought a wagon with us to help carry everything down to the beach which literally takes 2-3 minutes to get to from the room! It was perfect! We also had a great view of the water and the weekend fireworks from our balcony.

Overall, we had a wonderful time and will definitely be booking this property again!

Loved our stay

  • 5 of 5

We had 3 adults and 3 children ages 10 to 14. Was a perfect set up for our group. Loved being right on beach and walking distance to places to eat.
