  • Outstanding Condo and excellent vacation!

    "This condo was fabulous! It was much bigger than the pictures portray and was decorated nicely. There were plenty of towels and the kitchen was stocked nicely. There were plenty of beach chairs and toys left over from previous guests which made it nice when we had family come over. The resort is so beautiful and amenities were plenty. The pools were great and warm enough to enjoy but cool enough to be refreshing and were never crowded since there are so many of them. Entertainment down at the main pool was awesome and you can hear them from the balcony at night which we enjoyed. Great view of Tuesday night fireworks from the balcony as well. Beautiful views of the water and the island all around. We enjoyed both the sound and the Gulf sides multiple times. It's a little bit of walk if you are lugging your beach gear but go minimal and it's great. Not the fault of the owner at all but I will say a few things about the resort that are helpful to know up front: 1. The clearance in the parking garage is only 6'3" so if you are traveling with any kind of luggage carrier on your vehicle you will not be able to enter the garage. No big deal as parking outside was never a problem but good to know. 2. The food and cocktails are exorbitantly expensive. I enjoyed a night by the pool listening to entertainment with my sister and we each had 2 Bushwackers. The bill was $60.00!!!! That was the end of that. We made our own from then on. 3. There is little to no communication between the gate attendants and the front desk. Policy for guests changed every time we had one come. I have family in town so we had many. It was ALWAYS a pain and the the gate attendants were very rude to deal with. Just an FYI. The rest of the employees and I mean ALL of them were so friendly and helpful. I compared it to being in Disney more than once. They were great. One note for the owner, the Master bed squeaks so badly it made it difficult to sleep many nights for my husband and I. I ended up going to the couch multiple nights. Please don't think I'm being negative, we had a fantastic two week stay and my whole family loved it. The condo was one of the nicest we've ever stayed in and the elevators were always quick and never a problem. We will definitely be looking to come back next summer. (Maybe you could fix that bed though?) Overall rating....10 easy 10!"

  • Great condo - very comfortable and practical!

    "Nicely decorated and very comfortable for a family. I was impressed with the little practical things that just make a vacation easier, like chairs for the beach, super soft sheets, and an extra air mattress if needed to name a few. It sounds weird to start a review with practical things but they make a difference when selecting a unit! Also, great view of the gulf! And last but certainly not least, Betsy was extremely responsive to all of my questions. I was sure I was driving her crazy but she was very patient and always quick with an answer. Again, things that make a vacation easier are big winners with me!. Thanks Betsy!!!"

    "This condo was a great condo. It has so many amenities and the beach is beautiful and so close. Not only was it very clean, the views were amazing. I would definitely stay here again because the owner was easy to work with and very friendly."

  • Photos don't do justice to this pristine unit!

    "From the get go, communication from Mike was fast and clear. Checking in was a breeze and WOW were we impressed when we finally opened the door to our home away from home for the week. Photos DO NOT DO JUSTICE!! The unit is filled with light and the bedrooms have fabulous black out curtains for those mornings when you want to be a bit lazy in bed. We loved having the full kitchen and grill to make our meals at our convenience when we weren't dining on the island or at the Portofino's restaurants. The service at the resort was impeccable with the staff consistently going above and beyond. My 9 year old daughter loved the Kids Club offered by the resort team and we found everything to be very appropriately priced. We can't wait for our next trip back!"
