Island Beach Club 340D is a two bedroom two bath third floor condo. Absolutely unbeatable views of the Gulf of Mexico in this gulf front unit which sits about as close to the beach as you can get!
PETS ALLOWED WITH OWNER APPROVAL
This condo is located in an intimate resort with 6 buildings in the only beach front building where all units have a 180 degree view of the Gulf. Few resorts have buildings which sit this close to the beach with total unobstructed views. If my rating were for view and comfort only, I'd readily give this condo 5 stars! The king mattress in the master bedroom is very comfortable. The seating in the living area is leather (easy to clean) and very comfortable as well. The lanai is L-shaped with just enough width on the south facing section for 2 lounge chairs (bring your own and move lanai furniture out of the way). The west facing section of the lanai offers a completely unobstructed view of the most beautiful sunsets. The floor to ceiling windows in the living room are wonderful when it's too hot to sit on the lanai - still feel outdoors with the comfort of air conditioning. (All blinds work perfectly for privacy after sunset.) This condo (and all others at this resort according to other renters/owners) has humidity control. During the first week of November, the weather was extremely warm and very humid (90+%) yet the condo stayed dry and very comfortable with the AC set at 74-76 degrees. This was the MOST comfortable interior atmosphere we had ever experienced anywhere. Many resort units are rented and therefore have photos posted on-line. Comparing this condo with other "updated" units, we expected a little more on appearance since it is listed as recently remodeled. The laminate is peeling off some of the kitchen cabinet doors. The appliances (fridge, washer/dryer) are older but work great. The wallpaper is peeling in several locations. The carpet in the bedrooms is stained. The furniture in the master bedroom is massive making the room feel crowded (although it is a large room). The kitchen barely has pots and pans or baking dishes with lids to cook for 2 much less the 4 maximum occupancy. The resort pool ranges from 3 feet to 6.5 feet and is quite large. The resort allows adults only for an hour in the afternoon. There is covered parking per unit - wide vehicles fit. VIP was efficient both in booking and checking in. We had an issue with tiny ants in the kitchen. VIP had someone there to take care of the problem shortly after I called. The unit was clean. The vacation was relaxing and AWESOME! I'm surprised more guests haven't written reviews on this unit. We took a chance on it after seeing the calendar looked full and are glad we did!
