Two years ago we stayed in unit #505 and were so pleased that we booked the same apartment again this September. From the fifth floor one has a view inland with the bay in the distance. The supermarket Publix is a five-minute stroll away across the main road. The unit was clean and tidy with more than enough living space... More

We stayed in unit 406. It was gorgeous, very comfortable (great beds) and well supplied. However, the condo was disappointing to say the least. The pool was dirty and we do not believe it was vacuumed once during our stay. A new sprinkler system was being installed and in addition to the daily continuous banging noises, the water was shut...

We stayed in units 508 and 406. Both extremely clean and comfortable. Nicely decorated space including your own balcony opening from living room and master bedroom. There is easy access to the beach. We will definitely go back.

The Beachcomber is pure heaven. If you enjoy beautiful warm tropical waters, an uncrowded beach, and watching beautiful sunsets as dolphins or manta rays splash out of the ocean, this is the place for you. I have been vacationing at the Beachcomber for 30 years (since I was 9 years old) and it gets better every year. I loved it... More

We stayed at unit 506 The Beachcomber... what a great experience! Neatly decorated, super well maintained, clean and well-equiped... amazing views. We have absolutely no complaints about the apartment and/or the building... everything was just great, which helped ensure our great time. We are a family of 4 with 2 children ages 7 and 3. I thought by the end... More

We had a beachfront/corner unit condo for 7 days and enjoyed ourselves immensely. The condo had everything we needed to enjoy our time at the wonderful pool or down at the beautiful beaches! Very close to restaurants, the grocery store, St. Armand's Circle and all the attractions that matter! The managers of the complex were extremely nice and helpful with... More

The Beachcomber is a wonderful place to stay. Our condo looked directly at the beach and was spacious for a family of four. It was incredibly clean and well kept. We would love to return. The condo managers were very accomodating and helpful.

We rented unit 302, and it was perfect for my parents, my husband, my son, and me. My 21 month old son thoroughly enjoyed playing at the beach and in the pool. We couldn't have asked for a better location. Plus, it was great to have a fully stocked kitchen, as going to restaurants with a toddler can be quite... More

This facillity had all that and more. We defintely... More
