Overview

About the property

3 bedroom,2 bathroom ,kitchen, living room and large balcony and pool side.

You will love our newly decorated Condo that was accomplished Fall 2014 on the second floor! It is fully furnished for comfort, ease of use, amazingly relaxful and with a beautiful view. No fuss here and such a large balcony (360 sq. ft.) for the whole family to enjoy! As owners of this Condo, our goal is to provide a stress free vacation spot that has home amenities for you and your family to enjoy! Our Condo is located just a short walk to the Concierge desk, beautiful indoor heated pool, computer room and young children's playroom. Stop by the Concierge desk, and check out the pool table cues or shuffle board pucks and head to the game room. Or, reserve the large screen theater, with deep lounge type seating for your personal use. And, being on the second floor means you are closest to the outdoor three spill over pools, including the young kid’s shallow end, and long lazy river. The many chairs, loungers, and umbrellas will provide a day of fun at the pool! You can take your own soft drinks and snacks with you! Let those worries just fade away!

We have taken great care to provide a Condo that has everything you will need to enjoy your vacation. Because, really now, that's the whole point, isn't it? Less stress means more fun! We selected the following paints to enhance our condo with the beauty of the pool and splendor of nature that is just outside the huge glass windows. Owl Gray for the master bedroom and bathroom, Nantucket Blue in the hallway, kitchen and living room and Urban Putty in the two guest bedrooms and bathroom. Also selected art work and nautical items to connect your senses with the beach and water environment! The Kitchen is fully equipped for cooking, eating, and cleaning needs, and includes all usual appliances that you should need, including a 2 door stainless refrigerator that dispenses ice and water, a microwave, dishwasher, glass stove top, oven and large single bowl sink. The large, granite top island seats 4. The living room offers two comfortable leather recliner chairs, two small leather couches that open to twin beds, a large green sofa to lounge on, coffee table, large ceiling fan, tower lamp, large Visio TV, Bluetooth wireless speaker, WiFi and a whimsical 3D fish tank mural on the wall.

The master bedroom has a king size bed with side tables and lamps on each side, a full dresser and a ceiling fan. The master bath has a huge walk in shower, with both wall and ceiling shower heads. Lots of storage for personal items underneath the two sink vanity in the master bath. The first guest room contains a full over full set of bunk beds, dresser, bedside table and closets for storage and hanging clothes. The second guestroom contains a single queen sized bed, bedside table, ceiling fan, closet for hanging clothes and storage. There is a large full bathroom, with shower/tub combination between those bedrooms and contains a full size stackable washer and dryer. And, don't forget those living room sofas that makes into twin beds!

The extra-large balcony is a favorite, and includes a large wooden table with 8 chairs, 2 Adirondack lounge chairs, wooden settee and table for that early morning or late afternoon relaxation! All of the second floor balconies are huge compared to higher floors. Not all second floor balconies are full width, but ours is!

The Beautiful view from our Condo, both day and night, is waiting on you for fun in the Sun! So, be our guest as you will love Diamond Beach and create memories that will last forever! As the song lyrics go 'Don't Worry, Be Happy!'

Beautiful property...fun for the whole family!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved this property in Diamond Beach. The condo itself is beautifully decorated and had a wonderful outdoor space. We had all of our meals on the balcony overlooking the pool. The amenities were great. Our kids range in age and swimming ability so having a splash pad, 1' deep and a 4' pool was perfect. Kids also loved the lazy river, waterslide, jungle kids room, movie room and game room. Free video games! We only wish we could have stayed longer. Look forward to visiting this property in the future.

Exceeded our expectations!

  • 5 of 5

We have been renting condos for years for family vacations and this condo exceeded all of our expectation, even my husband, who tends to be critical of everything, was impressed. The condo is gorgeous, clean, has plenty of room for eight people and is well stocked with everything you need for a great vacation. The resort is also well maintained, the staff is friendly and there’s lots of things to do to keep everyone happy from the kid and adult playrooms to the lazy river, indoor pool and the huge outdoor pool. We loved relaxing on the large balcony and were very pleased with the entire experience at DB209. The owners are great to work with, thanks Caroline and Alan for going above and beyond to make our stay perfect! Will definitely recommend to all my family and friends.

We have worked diligently to make our condo the best for our renters listening to their comments regardsing their needs, likes , dislikes and or concerns . We want our renters to arrive and go "AWHHH, we've made it now lets have fun an relax!" and not have to worry about running to the store every other hour because they forgot some basic item ! It was a pleasure meeting you and your husband as well and do hope you will return in the future. Kind regards, Caroline and Alan Hart

Beautiful condo!

  • 5 of 5

This was one of the most well supplied condos we have ever stayed in. The owners thought of everything! The property is beautiful and very well designed. The 3 bedrooms give everyone their own space and easily fit my family of 6 plus my mom. When we return to Diamond Beach we will definitely be staying in this condo again!
