Perfect for a beach stay!

  • 5 of 5

This was a quiet area for December. Nicely decorated. The balcony had an amazing view. The unit was bigger than I thought. The kitchen was well equipped with everything we needed. I would stay here again.

Clean, quiet, roomy, and friendly!

  • 5 of 5

We arrived at the condo and it was very clean. We had plenty of towels to use through our stay. The view from the balcony was breathtaking! On our second day there we discovered that the dryer wasn't working, so we called and they said they were aware but were were waiting on a part to come in to repair it. The dryer wasn't fixed during our stay which would have really been inconvenient, however they came to the condo and picked up all of our dirty laundry which with 6 people on vacation was A LOT, had it all washed and dried, and the next morning brought it back to us, neatly folded! Will definitely recommend to other people and will stay there again! The building was quiet also, very nice!

Excellent stay

  • 5 of 5

My family and I had an excellent stay at the Nautilus. The rooms were fully furnished and all the kitchen supplies were supply. The condo was off the beach and the view of the Gulf from our room was magnificent! We enjoyed our whole stay! I would definitely stay there again.

Nice condo except for the curtains

  • 4 of 5

My family (wife, two sons, and mother-in-law) and I just returned from a weekend getaway at the beach. This condo is very spacious and was clean on our arrival. The balcony is large and the views were amazing. I only had a couple of gripes. The curtains in the bedrooms need to be changed. The sunshine beaming into the master bedroom woke us up at 6am each morning and at night it felt as though people on the beach could see into the room when the light was on. There is also a bright light that shines into the spare bedroom because of the blinds. Also, the plug in the master tub would not close to hold water for a bath, but worked fine for a shower. Changing out the curtains would make this condo so much better. As for the beach, there was easy access and there were a couple of lifeguard stands nearby. The water was clear except for a few spots where the seaweed built up. You only had to go about 20 yards out in order to get past the seaweed though. Overall we had a great time and will likely stay again.

The property is showing signs of getting old and dingy. Needs updating. Beds were very comfortable. For the money during a holiday week, I would stay elsewhere. Customer Service is very good; They came out on a Holiday when reporting a few things that needed fixing. ie: Lights out in Master Bath (needed a new switch). Sink & tub draining slowly. Screen door off of Living room sliding door (was un-fixable, rollers rusted). The property's elevator is very slow & very Hot during summer time.

nice place on the beach

  • 3 of 5

This unit looked exactly like the pictures! The balcony is very spacious and looks directly over the gulf. The room was clean upon arrival and well decorated. I need to find out where the coffee table came from, need one for my house! Now on to the bed in the master bedroom. The mattress falls off to each side and needs to be replaced. The whole time you are on it, it feels like you are going to roll right off. The curtains in the master bedroom, well, let's just say they don't need to be there. I enjoy a nice sunrise every now and again but not in my bedroom every morning. Black out curtains are desperately needed!

When you need to go somewhere make sure you allow extra time to wait on the elevator or just take the stairs. It is a very nice place the pool is clean, and the maintenance guy came by the pool one day and handed out pop ice to the kids! It is a very short walk to the beach and outdoor showers are available to wash off the sand before you return to the condo.
