Wonderful view and condo

  • 4 of 5

Our family of 4 stayed for a week in July 2016 in unit #1207 and enjoyed the Tides property, private beach and condo. The condo's highlight would be the balcony and view, but the rest of the condo is tastefully decorated, spacious and very comfortable. The master bedroom and bath (including shower and jetted tub) are very spacious. There is a safe in the room too. The kitchen has many utensils and everything needed to prepare a meal. The washer & dryer worked well and was very convenient.

The pools and private beach were great. We enjoyed our time lounging at the upper pool, dining at the lower pool outdoor restaurant (the Cuban sandwich was excellent). Our children enjoyed the dive-in movie offered one of the evenings at the pool. The beach was great, they offer for rent paddle boards, chairs & umbrellas and kayaks. At the main office of the Tides on the ground level they have equipment you can check out for free, they include beach chairs, beach toys & boogie boards, putt-putt golf, shuffleboard, volleyballs & basketballs, tennis and more.

FYI, the condo entrance is located just off the elevators (3). The bedrooms are against the wall opposite the elevators. For the most part it is quiet but we did hear some folks leaving early a few mornings (they use grocery carts to bring all their beach gear from car to condos and the carts are a little noisy.

Be sure to bring with you: beach towels, paper towels & toilet paper, dish soap. They did have a starter set of toiletries but not a weeks worth.

Fall Getaway

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed the week of 9/12 thru 9/19. The condo is great. The view from the 12th Floor of the Gulf of Mexico is breathtaking from the balcony. This unit since it is a corner unit has an extra large balcony. Sunsets were beautiful. The unit was modern and updated. The master B/R and Master Bathroom were both very large and comfortable. The location of the Tides at Tops'l was great as it was convenient to the outlet malls, golf and restaurants. Couldn't be happier and will definitely stay there again.

Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We stayed with our family the week of July 4th - we loved the view every day and fireworks we could see from our balcony. The balcony was huge and when we weren't at the beach we enjoyed the views and space. The condo was clean and spacious - floorpan was perfect for us with our 2 teenage girls. The property was great - we used the pool, chair/beach service and it is centrally located to get to everything. We were concerned about the location of the condo at first in relation to the elevators because we thought it would be loud but we didn't hear a thing and actually loved the convenience of our condo being close by when you are carrying groceries or stuff to and from the beach. The Kileys were so responsive to our questions and communication with them was super easy! We definitely recommend this condo and while we slept 4, you could easily have 2 others and still have plenty of space. Loved our vacation and this condo was worth every penny - thanks Kiley's !!!

Had the best time!

  • 5 of 5

Stayed in a great unit at Tops'l Tides Brought my son and his girlfriend. With the two bedrooms and him on the foldout, it was a perfect set up for us.

We especially enjoyed the balcony. It was so spacious. Loved the glider and the clean white cottage-like feel of the balcony furniture.

We ate at the bar and worked puzzles on the kitchen table. Played board games at night. I went to get a massage and the kids watched movies. The pools were great. So much to do and nice places to eat. The water was gorgeous. Really really enjoyed it!!
