Beach was beautiful, condo was great. My only complaint would be the balcony screen. It looks like a lot of places had them Im sure for safety but some down the beach gave the option of opening the screen. It really obstructed the view and made our eyes go funky trying to look through it and past it.

Pet friendly on the beach. AWESOME!!

  • 5 of 5

My Wife and I stayed in the condo for 4 nights with our dogs. When we arrived Debbie at the front desk greeted us with a big smile, some bottled water and a collapsible water bowl for the dogs. Some places say they are pet friendly but really they just tolerate your dogs. I did not get that feeling at Casa Playa Resort.

The condo was stocked with everything you could need. They have additional towels just for use on the beach, they also provided lounge chairs, tables and big umbrellas to use on the beach. The dogs are also allowed on the beach on a leash. It was nice to sit out on the beach under an umbrella and have our dogs right beside us.

Everything in the condo was in perfect working order, we didn't have problems with anything the entire time we stayed. You can lay on the bed and stare right out into the Gulf or you can sit out on the screened back porch and enjoy the sunset.

The condo is just steps from the water and only a 10 min walk to Time Square where you can find restaurants, shops, vendors and sometimes even some live entertainment in the square. In addition to the condo being pet friendly there are a lot of restaurants that allow you to eat with your dog. We were able to take our dogs nearly everywhere with us.

Everyone who works at Casa Playa was nice and always willing to assist in anything you might need. (Suggestions for dinner, help setting up a table and umbrella, etc.)

We would recommend that if you get the opportunity give Casa Playa a try, you won't be disappointed.

We can't wait to go back for another relaxing, rejuvenating, enjoyable trip.

Gulfront in late October!

  • 5 of 5

Loved the condo looking out at the Gulf with just steps from the sand. Quiet end & felt like we had the beach to ourselves for the sunsets. Kept the glass door open with screen to hear the ocean at night! Also loved having access to chairs/small table for beach use.

Only issue was that the shower significantly dripped when not in use--valve probably needs tightening?

Being that it was off season restaurants weren't crowded either. Being North of the bridge also helped us avoid the construction traffic on the South end.

Wonderful Stay

  • 5 of 5

My aunt and I wanted to spend a couple of days at the beach to celebrate our combined birthdays together and we could not have picked a better location or place. We are both older females and wanted something comfortable and centrally located and this location was perfect. Casa Playa had all the amenities we were looking for and so much more. They say the “devil is in the details” and they covered all the small details which were so nice. It was comfortable and easy access. The walk in shower was perfect for my aunt how does not like bounding in and out of a tub. It had soap and shampoo and even a hair dryer which was not expected and plenty of towels. It had the feel of home but the amenities of a hotel. The view was spectacular and it provided chairs for the beach, lounge and Adirondack Chairs. The office even provided DVD’s and books on an honor system. The TV was a “smart TV” so if you had a Netflix account you can sign into your account. The pool was easy access and clean. It had a beautiful little picnic area with two very large BBQ Grills. In fact the whole property was clean and very well maintained. The office staff was friendly and available. We loved our stay and can highly recommend it to anyone who wants a bit of home away from home.

Beautiful beachfront condo

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed on the first floor and loved it. From the time we arrived, we were treated with smiles and complimentary water. Everyone was very helpful and nice. Our room was beautiful with an awesome view of the ocean. This was our first time staying at Casa Playa and we loved it. We loved being within walking distance of the pier. Having chairs and an umbrella available for the week was very nice. We plan to stay again and will definitely ask for the same room.

The PERFECT beachfront vacation!!!!

  • 5 of 5

My Husband and I stayed here for four days with our dog.

Everything about it is perfect. From the moment we got there, the lady at the front desk was super nice. She even gave us a portable bowl and two bottle water to take with us for our dog. We think that is very thoughtful.

The unit was impeccable and has absolutely everything you would need, even bowls for your dogs!. Everything works perfectly fine.

The bed was super comfortable and big!!!

They provide beach towels and chairs which is great!

The bldg is only a 10 min walk from Time Square which is full of stores and restaurants.

Everything is very pet friendly. We were able to take our dog basically everywhere. At the hotel, the only place pets are not allowed is the pool, other than that you can take them everywhere.

The view is absolutely breathtaking. Waking up and seen that beautiful view is so relaxing. We had breakfast at the balcony every morning and sat on the beach to watch the sunset.

There is two gas barbecues and plenty of covered tables to eat and relax while watching the sea.

One of the days we were there, we were lucky enough to see dolphins. They were swimming very close by. It was amazing!

We will definitely stay here again!
