"From beginning to end, this trip was seamless. Owner was fantastic with answering questions before and during our stay.
Location is walking distance to all the shops and restaurants in the area, we never had to use our car.
Parking is limited, however we never had an issue since we never used the car to go anywhere.
Beach view is wonderful; condos on either side do not block your view of the water, and the sunsets are fantastic. Water is never choppy, so grab a float and relax! Great for kids, plenty of seashells to collect and little fish to watch. Entrance to beach is right off the stairs to your condo, however be aware that it is also a public entrance so expect foot traffic throughout the day as others come to play. Places close at 9 or 10 PM so it got quieter around that time.
Condo was well maintained. Kitchen upgrades were excellent and well stocked with utensils, plates, cups, etc. Depending on your party size, bring extra toilet paper and garbage bags. There are a lot of beach towels available for your use! Outside deck recently got a facelift and the furniture is great out there. There is a step down on the edge of the deck so be aware if you have little ones (or forgetful adults) that they need to be reminded to step down or they'll take a tumble.
Shocked that when we stepped foot in the condo we weren't met with sandy floors. Condo was clean and well lit and ceiling fans were great. Living room got hot around afternoon due to no curtains to shield the heat, however it cooled down once sunset happened.
Island Creperie for breakfast (love the atmosphere & friendly staff), Freckled Fin for lunch/dinner (great location, outdoor entertainment, decor is typical beach and friendly staff. Food was worth the price!) Island Time for dinner/drinks (outdoor location, bar and entertainment, not a lot of lighting but food was good!)
Judy's Restaurant on Cortez Road is great for a trip away from the beach. Shrimp basket was amazing, breakfast omelets were delicious. (Be sure to check their hours, as some days they close at 2PM).
Red Barn Flea Market has a nice atmosphere and lots of food choices. Typical flea market with nothing too grand, however it was a nice walkthrough.
Strongly advise not going to Gulf Drive cafe. Found hair in food and management and service was terrible. Read Yelp! reviews before you go!
Again, impressed with this condo and will definitely return! Thanks for the wonderful break!"
