About Suzie McDowell

I live in Mississippi and purchased this unit at Palacio in March of 2015. Definitely a "bucket list item" to one day own a condo after decades of visiting the Perdido Key area multiple times per year. I finally took the plunge and decided to completely remodel and refurnish the unit turning into what we consider our "dream vacation destination"!

We have sincerely put our heart and soul into this remodeling this unit and hope that it becomes your "perfect" gulf front property for family vacations for years to come as we know it will be for us.

Suzie McDowell purchased this condo in 2015

Why Suzie McDowell chose Perdido Key

Palacio is in the heart of Perdido Key, we absolutely love the white sand beaches, the emerald colors of the gulf and the serenity of this particular location. While Perdido Key offers all the first class restaurants and shopping of other nearby resort locations, it is also not quite as busy as some which appealed to us personally. You are close to world class golfing, fishing and minutes from Orange Beach, Gulf Shores, and Pensacola Forida!

What makes this condo unique

One of our favorite features is the units proximity to the beach, the walk to the waterfront is literally about 100 yards, perfect when carrying all the kids gear to set up for your day! Avoid the half a mile hike to the water!

The perfect vacation-inside and out!

  • 5 of 5

I hardly know where to begin when writing a review on the week we spent at this property. It is even more stunning than the pictures online! We are a family of six with my husband and I, two teenage girls and two toddlers. Every detail is taken care of and the atmosphere in the home is soft, relaxing and luxurious without being stuffy. We have rented many properties both domestically and internationally and truly, none compare to this one. The furniture is beautiful, top of the line and so comfortable. I couldn't wait to sink into a chair and ottoman or the sofa and enjoy the view, relax and read each day. Even the throws and blankets are soft and cozy! The beds may be the most comfortable that I've ever slept on. In addition, the kitchen is well stocked and large enough for the family to move around in and prepare meals or just fix morning coffee! The laundry room is conveniently located away from bedrooms which is great if you have little ones who are resting. The furniture on the balcony is some of the nicest I've seen and the view is amazing, as well as the proximity to the pool and the beach. We spent many hours enjoying that spot as well.

This complex has staff on site who are unobtrusive, but add so much value, in that, they are always milling about; cleaning, making repairs and just generally making sure the facilities are maintained. The pool area is beautiful. It is large enough to never feel crowded and has tables and chairs in various areas for relaxing, snacking or preparing meals on the grills.

Finally, I cannot say enough about the beach! The beach service is excellent, the sand is soft, white and powdery and the water is perfect! No rocks or debris to deal with here... We had our pictures done by Shore Shooters and they turned out beautifully; no need to leave our own beach area.

We have vacationed in this area several times just up the road. This location is our new favorite, but we were close enough to visit our favorite restaurants like The Gulf and Bahama Bob's, while spending most of our time at, or near the Palacio. We also spent an afternoon at the Flora Bama yacht club which was a lot of fun! The food was excellent and our girls enjoyed playing in the sand and even getting in the water for awhile.

This is the perfect spot for an ideal getaway.

Fantastic Condo!

  • 5 of 5

If you are looking for a spectular condo for your next vacation, look no further, you’ve found it! This is our second year spending the month of February in this condo. There are not enough adjectives to describe how wonderful this place is! It is beautifully appointed and everything, and I do mean everything, is top of the line from fixtures, to bedding to linens! It has all the amenities anyone could possibly need. Add to it that it conviently located near restaurants, stores and numerous golf courses and you have the perfect vacation. And if that’s not enough to convince you, Suzie, the owner goes well beyond to make sure you have a great stay! All of the above reasons are why we are coming back for our third year! We are already looking forward to February 2019!

This was, by far, the best accommodations/ condo my family and i have stayed at in over 40 years of visiting the Gulf coast. Simply beautiful and full of the personal touches Suzie has added to go along with a great location. She has been the most gracious, understanding host i have ever dealt with and my family and i sooooo look forward to coming back. This condo lacks nothing. Tojo and Joane Ward

Stop looking now...this is the condo for you. The owner is one of the best I've ever worked with. We stayed for the month of November and it was amazing. The condo is just as described & pictures are accurate. Every square inch has been updated beautifully. The condo was very clean upon arrival. The balcony size is good with lots of comfortable seating & awesome view. It's located very close to restaurants & grocery stores which is a plus. We'll definitely be staying here again an thank the owners for sharing their lovely home with us.

Blown away at the details of excellence!!!

  • 5 of 5

I usually just want to stare at the ocean. This condo was past cozy and perfect. I probably stared at the aesthetics more than the ocean. I even sent pictures to my sister of how perfectly laid out every drawer in the kitchen was laid out! Every towel and blanket we pristine and superior. I did not know a vacation could feel like someone prepared it as if you were royalty and deserved the absolute best. The amenities of a heated pool, regular pool, and hot tub were pristine as well! The awesome grocery store 5 min away was a huge plus. I seriously did not want to go home to my imperfect house....I hope the owners know how much I appreciate people like them that take a vacation home to another level!

Great location and super nice decor and comfortable!!

  • 5 of 5

This condo is the boob! Great location located over the pool and beach. Right across from Jellyfish bar. Great sushi and bourbon salmon was spectacular! And the cafe Beignets also across the street. Awesome!! Just minutes from florabama we ubered home for $11. Not bad at all for a safe trip home. Master bed so comfortable and fans in every room. One day we stayed in and watched movies. So comfy and kitchen has everything you would need to cook with. Overall it is a solid 5star condo!!

Car: necessary

Palacio is a 5 minute drive from Publix and Winn Dixie Grocery stores. You drive out of the condo, take a right and go across the bridge, these are both right after the bridge. Wal-Mart and Target are approx. 2 miles away. Boutique shopping and restaurants are across the street and the Outlet Mall in Foley is about 30 minutes away.
