“Best experience ever!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 14, 2012

We stayed at Sarah Seaside on May 2012. I had read plenty of good reviews about the Resort but was still amazed when I stepped through the doors of the property. We stayed in a 2 bed beachfront condo with my parents and husband and had the most relaxing and enjoyable vacation that I can remember. The beach was beautiful and equipped with cushioned chairs, umbrellas, toys for kids and the like. We were able to enjoy a very quiet beach time, as only us and the other families staying at the resort were around. The facilities were in excellent conditions, comfortable and clean. The gardens are extraordinary, the swimming pool is pristine and climatized. Our unit was fully equipped with kitchen and bathroom supplies, towels, cleaning products and even a washing and drying machine on premises. The staff was very friendly and ready to help. We loved this place so much that we are already going back for a second week on November 2012. Thanks to the owners for such a great place and experience!

Vacationing at Gulfside Resort is a wonderful experience - especially if you have children. From the moment the kids wake up, they are greeted by beautiful gardens as they sit and enjoy breakfast at the patio tables. Down a winding path and through well appointed tropical gardens, the ocean waves can be heard at all times, inviting you closer to the beach. The path meanders by the figure 8 shaped salt water pool with a full view of the ocean. Just a couple steps down from the outdoor shower, you are now on the path of smooth sand and plant life to the ocean. White sugar sands and a mostly calm Gulf of Mexico pulls you in as pelicans, sanderlings and gulls cruise the oceans for their breakfast. Ahh, morning has broken here at 810 Gulfside, the old traditional Florida Coast morning. Beautiful olive, whelk, pen and Florida fighting conch shells adorn the sandy white beaches. Remember that just a few yards off the shoreline also lay beautiful, whole sand dollars for you to take as a souvenir- just 2 please : o).
Our bungalo at 810 Gulfside was updated, charming and quaint, clean and quiet, and provided for the best family bonding. Drew is a special part of 810 Gulfside, and you need to check out his evening entertainment. This vacation destination provides all the amenities and beauty that you need to enjoy a fun and relaxing vacation with your family- kids or not, of course!

Room Tip: Go for the upstairs villa with the ocean view.

Every thing at the tip of your toes....the sand,beach, pool, tropical foliage, the beach breeze, and the nicest owners Lee and Mary Wilkerson. Everything within walking distance and our room was very comfortable with all the conveniences of home. Great place to have family get together. What an awesome place, will be returning in the near future.

Room Tip: Beautiful view of sunset on the bottom 2 bdrm, 2 bath.

Loved the area and the resort had all the comforts of home. Beautiful gardens and quaint cottages. We were made to feel very welcome and enjoyed the beer tasting around the pool. Walking distance to convenience store and restaurants.

A group of us rented the 20 Gulf Blvd apartments, which left us with the entire area to ourselves. The owners were right there in the building beside us, although, as they said when we checked in, we were on our own once the tour was done. We definitely were, although if you wished to reach them, you could, but they let our group enjoy the complex uninterrupted. We loved the view and the convenience of location. You cannot beat having a pool with the ocean front right at your door step to also use. We all really enjoyed our stay and would definitely rent this complex again.

We travelled from Ireland in August 2012 and stayed at apt 3 in Gulfside 810. We were greeted on arrival by Drew and shown immediately to the property. Everything was neat, clean and tidy. Both Drew and Paul were fantastic hosts and were available throughout the week to help us with any query we had.
The beach was only a few steps away from the apartment and was mostly quiet with sun loungers provided as well as kayaks and beach toys. We enjoyed some lovely walks along the beach especially in the late evening as the sun was setting.
We visited Sarahs Seaside for Drews brew evening which was great fun with lots of different types of beer to taste. Well done Drew !
We will be recommending this holiday to all our family and friends and look forward to returning ourselves in the not too distant future.
Thanks to Drew and Paul for their hospitality. This is a holiday you won't forget

We have visited Gulfside Resorts before (3 years ago for our first anniversary). This trip was our 7 month old daughter's first beach trip. Lee and Paul had our unit set up and ready to go! They had a highchair and a crib ready for her! They help make things so easy for families! The beach is amazing (almost seems like a private beach)! The location of the property is convinient to wonderful restaraunts (highly recommend PJ's & Crabby Bill's!). We will definitely be back!
