My family checked into Village by the Gulf on July 5th, 2013 and stayed until July 9, 2013. The location is great. It is right across the street from the beach. There is a convenient store right next door. The condo's have been said to be outdated however I found it very cozy. There was lots of room for my family of 5. We really enjoyed our stay. We will stay there again. For the price and room you can't beat it. The only down side was that we were on the 3rd floor. Carrying luggage for three children and two adults up three flights of stairs was a little tiring. No beach view from our unit but we didn't mind that at all. We had a little patio area as well for nice evening down time after the children went to bed.
