I never wanted to leave!

  • 5 of 5

This condo was exactly as promised -- well, actually better than promised. It was comfortable, bright, convenient, quiet, and clean, with all the conveniences of home. With a few steps to the walkway to the beach, it allowed stunning views of sunrises and sunsets. The neighbors were friendly and considerate. The small number of units in the building was a bonus. It seemed like home, with a chance to socialize if so inclined, but allowing for privacy if not so inclined.

The island itself is very convenient to other attractions in the town, but off the beaten path enough to remain quiet and restful, without traffic. It's a great venue for walking or riding your bike.

The owners were so accommodating. Even when I found myself unable to operate the cable television, the owner was on the phone with me and the cable company to make sure I was able to access the programs I was looking for.

Without hesitation, I would encourage anyone to enjoy the space in this cheerful unit, but only if it won't interfere with my opportunity to take up residence there again!

Our second stay

  • 5 of 5

The condo is in a three story building that has an old Florida appeal with well kept grounds , a parking lot with dedicated parking for each unit, and a large pool that is kept pristine. Unit 104 is on the ground level which we like. Check the pictures of this condo, it is clean, comfortable and the kitchen has everything you need . The owners are great to deal with. We have high expectations and everything about our stay has met them.

Absolutely Perfect

  • 5 of 5

We celebrated our 20th Wedding Anniversary in this amazing condo. This was the first vacation me and my husband has ever taken alone. We were lucky to have 12 days here and enjoyed every single minute, not ever wanting it to end. We spent the first five days alone , then our son and girlfriend came down to spend the remaining seven days with us and enjoyed some wonderful family time . My husband and son went deep sea fishing for the first time and had a blast ! We definitely agree that this is the best stocked condo we have ever stayed in and was exceptionally clean . We can't wait to come back and will without a doubt stay here again ! Thanks so much David and Olga ! Sincerely, Lori and Jamie Turner
