About Cathy Burleson

Cathy Burleson purchased this condo in 2001

Why Cathy Burleson chose Florida North West

After spending 20 years going to the beach with their family the Burlesons decided to purchase a place of their own. This condo is like an extended home to the Burlesons. Some Christmases, an occasional Thanksgiving, and a lot of spring breaks for their children have provided some of the most memorable experiences for the family. We hope you make many memories for your family when you vacation with us.

What makes this condo unique

Nothing is more relaxing than watching or listening to waves breaking. Unless maybe it could be pushing your toes down into the most beautiful white sand until you feel the cool layers underneath. Add all the activities from which to choose that's right around you, and you have the recipe for a wonderful vacation.

Awesome place to stay

  • 5 of 5

The Condo was great ! the place was well equipped and clean. the communication to gain access was easy to follow.

My only Criticism is the beach access. you don't get direct access to the water, the facility will not allow you to set up your own chairs directly in front of the property. you either have to rent their beach chairs and umbrellas or you have to march down the beach where all other public access is. The rental chairs are set very close together and don't allow for private quit time without your neighbors listening in.

Owner's Response: Hi Joe! We have similar issues with the beach set-ups. I tried to explain in the instructions how best to navigate the beach business. We're here this week with five of us girls and we walked to the far left boardwalk (as in the instructions), rented a beach set-up and added three chairs to it. This seems to work the best consistently for us. I leave two extra chairs in the master closet for guests to help with this.

Great resort with amazing view from balcony in this large condo!

  • 5 of 5

The condo was large and very nice! Loved the balcony and amazing view. Was nice to be able to see family swimming or even playing in the ocean from the balcony. Easy walk to pool and beach. There is even a beach bar that serves drinks and food. Owner was easy to work with and everything was in place. Will definitely stay here again!

Great condo - no complaints!!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time. Loved that the condo was private in that only 3 rooms on each floor per elevator. Great parking spot. Wished it had a more private ocean/front balcony but otherwise it was great!! Beautiful condo stocked with every thing we needed. Would recommend this again to a bigger family or two families with kids.
