"Loved this condo! It is beautifully decorated, well maintained and very clean. The beds and the furniture are comfortable. There is a lot of storage space and the closets are big. The kitchen had everything we needed for making meals. They have family friendly DVD's to watch, puzzles, games and plenty of great books. That did come in handy for the one rainy day we had. They had a list of restaurants, shops and local attractions for us, which was very helpful. They have thought of everything you might need for a great home away from home.
Daily beach service is included, which is a large umbrella and two chairs. That was really great. I loved sitting on the beach under the umbrella reading and looking out at that beautiful view. They also have a well stocked storage closet with extra beach chairs, umbrellas, boggy boards and beach toys people left behind.
My favorite part of the condo was the spectacular view from the 13th floor. All floor to ceiling windows and sliding glass doors on the ocean side. The balcony is tiled with comfortable furniture. We spent more time on the balcony than on the beach. The May weather was cool enough to have the doors open. I just couldn't get over the great view of the gulf and the color of the water! It just made me smile every time I looked out. It was so relaxing and tranquil.
The Pearl is well maintained and clean. The pools are beautiful and one is heated. The beach is very clean and they are expanding it right now. The friend that told us about the Pearl saw my pictures and almost didn't recognize the beach it is so much bigger now! Ike was very upfront that the expansion was going on during our stay and sent pictures. He didn't want us to rent if the pipes would upset us or we would be disappointed with the view. I really appreciated his honesty and concern that we have a great trip. It was fascinating to watch the process. We saw the beach triple in size. The sand is all-new from the bottom of the gulf, lots of shells! It should be done very soon, end of May or early June.
We highly recommend this condo and we will definitely rent from Ike and Linda again!
Thank you Ike and Linda for a wonderful vacation!"
