My family of 5 (children 12, 8, 6) enjoyed our stay in unit 301. Onl negatives: (1) our feet got a little dirty walking on floor (probably partly because of blacktop parking lot) and (2) toilet handle broke during the stay. Positives: (1) toilet was fixed the same day I reported the problem. (2). The beautiful beach. We were there... More

From balcony 302 the scene is postcard worthy. A clean, comfortable condo except the sofa-bed was not a good fit for adults. This area is where old meets new, located six miles from St Armands Circle you will find unique shops and world class dining.

We just completed a one week stay at the Turtle Crawl Inn. Our condo was beautiful, clean, and well equipped for a vacation stay. The weather and the water were beautiful....beach chairs, beach umbrella, and ice chest were furnished. We couldn't have asked for a more amazing week. Angel was a great help to us during our stay.

P.S. to Never rent a condo from Resort Quest. After writing a scathing letter to R.Q. about the hole that is unit #62 they contacted me to apologize and assured me that they were taking action to renovate, remodel, and clean this unit. They also presented me with a 2 night gift certificate to appease me for the terrible experience.... More

Booked online through Resort Quest. Found out later that a better deal may be had by going directly through Angel at TCI. Angel was very nice and gave us the name of a great restaurant - the Lazy Lobster. No complaints re: Resort Quest however. Very accomodating after the A/C in our first unit (303) was not functioning. Moved to... More

It is move in ready as the condo has everything you could possibly need. #401 is immaculate, nicely decorated and very comfortable. The view is fantastic!! We have been to many resorts but the location, the... More

Turtle Crawl Inn (Unit 401) is the best furnished unit at this location. Everything is available for your stay away from home. The beach is at your doorway and the sunsets are beautiful. There is also a small swimming pool and laundry facilities. We hope you enjoy your stay as much as we did.

This is a rebuttal to the guest who stayed in 83 booked with Angel's Vacation Rentals I personally showed her the new room that she was to go into and she thought it was a great condo after about 3 days she came to me with her first and only complaint of a bad frying pan at that time I... More

Spent 3 days in rm 83. Very nice and well looked after. Not the view we expected. Move to tower unit 304. At first glance is seemed ok with wonderful view of the gulf. After staying there 10 days we were so disgusted with the place we couldn't wait to leave. Our agent, Angel of Angels vacations was very accommodating... More

We stayed in the tower T401 and loved the condo. The view was great. The condo was clean and had everything you need. The owner was accomodating and happy to make our stay comfortable. The beach was excellent. Much wildlife to see. The condo is right down the road from St. Armands Circle, Mote Aquarium and many restaurants.
