This unit is very dated and needs a complete overhaul!

  • 2 of 5

Ceiling fan in LR about to fall down! Bathroom was sub par with something was missing on wall above sink! Balcony was dirty and needed new tile and paint! Furniture in BR was junk! Overall view was good! Kitchen appliances are very dated and rusty! Couch was not comfortable to sit on! Vent in ceiling is falling out! I would stay here again if it was updated!

Relaxing Stay

  • 5 of 5

The Condos location on the fifth floor was perfect for spectacular views of the Gulf.

The amenities and decor were very nice.

We are already making plans to stay here again next year!!

Unit was small and bedroom didn't have a door. Washer did not cycle and the garbage disposal didn't work. Location was fantastic, close to everything. For two people it was great, but for four it was pretty tight quarters.
