About Connie Smith

We are original owners of this condo. It is our home away from home. We live in Indiana so it is a bit of a trip to the beach. Someday maybe we will be able to stay longer than a week at a time. Treat the condo gently and with respect. We like keeping it a special retreat for everyone.

Thanks, The Smiths

Guestbook comments from the owner

"This place is awesome!!!!! The condo was even better than the description. It's in a great location and proximity to everything. When we arrived the A/C was not cooling. The owners immediately acted and a repairman arrived within a few hours. I would recommend this condo to everyone. This is a place my family and friends will be visiting for many years.

very nice!

  • 4 of 5

Unit is very nice and has a beautiful view. Wonderful large balcony and Connie was so easy to deal with. I have rented a lot of condos through the years and I would have to say this trip was the least stressful and the most pleasurable. The deposit was refunded within a week! Thanks Connie for making our trip so easy!!!

One of our favorite vacations ever!!!

  • 5 of 5

The whole family had an awesome time. We all really enjoyed staying at the Island Royale 904. Very roomy for a 2 bedroom 2 bath, nicely furnished, and the view doesn't get any better than this. Would really love to return here in the future.

Roomy accommodations in convenient location

  • 4 of 5

We were pleased to find this place when we decided to travel on short notice. The owner was pleasant and prompt to reply to our inquiry. The condo was nicely appointed without being overcrowded with furniture. The balcony was especially roomy. It is hard to beat the location, which was about a mile from the Hangout. That is far enough away to escape the crowd, but close enough to walk if you choose.
