Beautiful Gem!!! Very private and tropical.

  • 5 of 5

This place was absolutely beautiful!!! Very spotless and a great value. Me and my husband love, love, loved it!!! We were so comfortable and it was fit for just us two, the grounds were neat and very tropical, like a hidden paradise. The people in the neighboring units were so polite and helpful.

Nikki was a sweetheart and very easy to do business with , answered all our questions, the place had everything you needed, from beach towels, chairs, pots and pans you name it!! Every basis was covered. My husband and I already discussed coming back in 2019, so Nikki get ready for us again!

Very conveniently located was beach access, Harry's deli and Harry's Restaurant up the block, food was excellent but on the expensive side.

Nice little place.

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay. The little place was well organized with all the kitchen supplies we needed to cook our meals. The bed is very comfortable. Best part was access to the beach on the Gulf. We were able to enjoy a lot of the local festivals and street fairs as well as restaurants. This villa is part of an 8 unit condo community with very friendly people. Nikki was just a phone call away and responsive,and our two cats were welcome also.

Cute condo

  • 5 of 5

Cute 1960 motel converted to condos. We stayed here two months while looking for a permanent home. Nikki was great! Answered all our questions and gave us info about the area. Easy walk to the beach on the gulf. Restaurants, deli, park short walk away. Bicycles right next door for rent if needed. Outdoor shower with hot and cold water. Wish we could live here. Would recommend highly.

Wonderful cute clean place

  • 5 of 5

My hubby and I just enjoyed a wonderful vacation in this cute little villa. Nikki (the owner) was a great help, check in was a breeze and she responded right away when we called her with a quick question! The place is super clean, a short, easy walk to the beach and I love Durante Park with its great walking walking trails is right next door. And in the evenings we enjoyed live music at the Hayeloft and could walk home. We're coming back for sure and recommending to all our friends.
