This penthouse has a very nice, large balcony with a great gulf view.

We have stayed there twice now, and both times the family was very happy. Nice kitchen with granite, laundry, updated appliances, and a double living area so people could spread out a little ! The place is super clean and well outfitted. You can't go wrong here !!

Wonderful family vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We had the BEST time and loved the condo. Everything we needed was easily accessible and we had plenty of room for all of us. The beach was an easy walk or drive and the community pool was beautiful. We can't wait to go back!

We loved it!!

  • 5 of 5

We were so amazed when we opened the front door and saw how large the condo unit was!

The kitchen is beautiful and fully stocked with pots, pans, plates, glasses, etc. The washing machine was great and there was even detergent there to use. The beds were very comfortable and the patio that looks out to the pool and ocean was great! I love all the chairs that were out there to lounge around on. We loved the place so much that we are going to make this an annual trip and stay at this same place.

The owner and the management office were both so easy to work with and the check in was a breeze.

Great family/kid friendly vacation spot

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here with another couple and their 2 small children - 4 young kids under 5 years old in all - and had a great time. Beach is within walking distance although I recommend purchasing a parking pass for $12 or renting a golf cart to lug all the beach gear around.

There is also a pool to cool down in and to relax in after a day at the beach.

It's an older building but the owners have done well in keeping the decor, furniture, and appliances up to date. There were plenty of comfy beds for everyone and the kids enjoyed bunking together. There is also plenty of living room space so the kids can run around and nobody feels like they are in top of each other.

There is no cable tv but there is wifi so you can steam Netflix from your computer if you bring an hdmi cable, or you can bring DVDs to watch on their DVD player.

The kitchen is well stocked with lots and pans and utensils for cooking.

Be careful of the hot water as it's nuclear hot, and also beware there are some bugs around, although that may just be because it's the beach and the warm weather.

Owner's Response: Thank you for staying with us! We have cable in the main living and the master bedrooms. But, for your next stay, the entire complex is supposed to be re-wired this winter for better cable and internet. We are glad you had fun, and please come back soon!

Perfectly located and sized

  • 4 of 5

We greatly enjoyed our stay here. The pool, access to the beach, proximity to local establishments and the condo in general were great! We had a maintenance question and it was expeditiously handled. With two living areas and the great balcony we had plenty of space to spread out. The property office and the owner were easy to work with. We can't wait for our next family adventure here!

Car: recommended

There is a NEW Schlitterbahn less than 30 minutes away. Great fun for the entire family!

There is also great fun crab hunting on the beach at night. Bring your flashlights. Nets are about $3 at the grocery store in Port A.
