Litte Slice of Paradise

  • 5 of 5

We have now stayed twice in this super condo. We are so glad we found it on VRBO. Both times we have found it very clean and happy bright. The condo provides us with what we need. We have laughed that we are very content here with so little of our own personal belongings. Guess that tells us something. The location is perfect for the bay (can see from the living area window); the pool (just a short walk to a very large heated saltwater pool); and the gulf (walk across the street to view the sunsets or walk the beach). As golfers, we have been able to find super golf courses and can't wait to go again. And we have done great day trips from this location (Punta Gorda, Arcadia, Apollo Beach to name a few). The lucky owners of this condo have been super to work with. Will we be returning, you bet!

Wonderful Condo - -Clean and Super Close to the Beach

  • 5 of 5

My family and I just returned from staying at this condo and we had a fantastic time. The condo was spacious and clean. Everything you needed to feel right at home was provided including lots of sand toys that my son enjoyed. The pool at the complex is large and very nice and the beach is literally a two minute walk across the street. Would highly recommend staying here!!

My husband and I spent a week here and came away feeling relaxed and rejuvenated. From the moment we entered the condo we felt right at home! It was very clean, bright, comfortable, and stocked with everything we needed for the week! We loved the salt water pool and the easy access to the beach across the street. The location was fantastic and we were able to enjoy many of the fantastic restaurants and shops on the Island. We are already talking about returning next year and plan on staying in this condo again!!!! YOU WILL LOVE IT!!!!

The perfect vacation spot!

  • 5 of 5

My family of five spent the last week here and it was just what we were looking for. The condo was clean, cool and very well stocked with kitchen and beach supplies. The beach is a short walk across the road, and was very clean and quiet. We loved walking the beach and collecting shells. The water is calm and the perfect temperature. Early morning runs gave us the opportunity to watch the sunrise on the bay side, and evening walks on the beach gave us the pleasure of sunsets. We even spotted dolphins and a skate! There is a great bowling alley on Cortez if it rains! Lots of great restaurants and ice cream!

Thank you for sharing your Florida home with us.

Wonderful place to spend at a beach without the crowds

  • 5 of 5

Even though it was a short mini-vacation, this was a quaint little bit of Florida that I enjoyed visiting. The walk to the beach was very short and shore wasn't rocky at all. The water was clear and comfortable. It was also nice to have the option to swim in the pool. There are lovely restaurants in the area and easy access to groceries if you wanted to cook at the property. The room was comfortable and clean. I enjoyed reading and catching up on much needed rest and relaxation. If I were to go back, I'd definitely take more advantage of the trolley to see the area to explore. The local restaurants were great and if you like to shop, there are some nice shops within walking distance. Bring your camera because the views of the sunset are spectacular at the beach!

A great place to vacation!!!!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I spent a week here and had a fantastic time. The condo was in excellent condition, clean, comfortable, and in a great location. We would walk to the beach every day (3 min walk) to bathe in the sun, read, float in the warm and calm ocean water, and see spectacular sunsets. By the way, there was no evidence of the BP oil spill at all! We even saw schools of fish in the ocean and several dolphins swimming about 100 yards off the beach. There are a lot of nice restaurants near by. We can't wait to go back for another vacation next year.
