I stayed here during my friends family reunion. We rented #503, a beautiful 2 bedroom 2 bath condo. I loved the fact that the owner had a boxed filled with games and puzzles and also left a Winn-Dixie Club Card in the cabinet so that we could get discounts when shopping for supplies...nice touch! All of the condo's face the ocean so everyone has a beachfront view. All areas were clean and well maintained. Property mgr was very nice and responsive, on day 2 we noticed our garbage disposal was clogged and someone came up and fixed the problem right away. Also, we flew into FL so we did not have beach chairs like the others who probably drove. The mgr was able to let us borrow chairs that were along the side of the building that were left by previous owners/vacationers which was nice. The pool area was lovely and the condo has its own entrance to the beach. Also small exercise facility which had all the basic exercise equipment.
Info on surrounding area: The condo is located on a road that is surrounded by homes and a few more condo developments which makes the area nice and calm. All of the shopping and eateries are all on Harbor Blvd, which intersects Gulf Shore Drive and is the main road, so there is not a lot of tourist traffic. This is great but I was glad we had a car rental because the FL sun would make walks up the road unbearable (Winn-Dixie, Target, CVS are in the near vicinity on Harbor Blvd).
The beach is pristine with clear water and white sands. You can actually see fish swimming!
Definitely going back!!
