Our 1 BR condo had an oceanview balconyand was very nice. It was clean and spacious with an open, airy feel that was perfect for.a beach condo. Very nice oceanside pool, FABULOUS beach, great amenities and right across from grocery store!! Many great restaurants nearby. Staff friendly and very helpful. We will DEFINITELY return at least once a year!!

Beautiful gulf view and sunset - Highly recommened. Only downfall no security. Vandels look for rental cars to break in which in fact they tried the first night there damaging the door. No lighting, cameras or staff after 5pm. Would recommend stay, but don't keep valubles in vehicle.

Room Tip: Room 502 or facing gulf

We found this on VRBO and all the photos were accurate, but they failed to say it was right next to a highway! Instead of hearing the ocean, we heard the sound of cars and trucks continually! Unit 508 is the unit nearest to the highway and farthest from the beach. We did have a view of the beach from our balcony. The unit has been updated somewhat, but it is still a 90's built unit.

The blinds don't work very well and while it did have a stackable washer and dryer, the loads have to be very small (two beach towels were all that could be laundered at a time). And, there wasn't a clock or radio in the bedroom. We had to go out to buy an alarm clock!!

The beach here is nice, but the sound of the highway spoils it.

Room Tip: Ask for a room ending in 1,2,3, or 4 (rooms closer to the ocean and farther from the road).

We stayed in Unit #201 for 5 nights. We have been guests of the Gulf Strand since 2005 staying in a few other gulf front suites. The owners of #201 are truly to be commended for their upkeep, quality of amenities and cleanliness. The granite countertops, stainless appliances and Bright House cable television were a welcomed surprise for us. The flat panel televisions were the best. We truly experienced a warm at home feeling when we stayed in this unit. We have reserved dates for November, 2013 for this unit. Thank you Owners and Betty for making our trip one of our most enjoyable and relaxing vacations.

Room Tip: You will not be disappointed if you select a Gulf Front View.

Wife and I escaped the awful weather of New Jersey (Sandy & NorEaster). We rented thru the resort and got the top floor ocean front condo, clean and beautiful! Very good location, across the street from Publix supermarket and amongst restaurants. Heated pool. My wife and got up in the morning and went on runs, if you go left and run to the end it is 2.45 miles one way.
Sunset was beautiful, we snuggled on the patio with glasses of wine and just felt wonderful! Get condo 602, worth the money!

Stayed in Condo 603 with a Gulf view balcony. Condo was great with everything we needed. Nice decor, very clean and up to date. Plenty of towels. Laundry detergent and fabric softener were provided in our unit for use with the washer and dryer which was nice. King bed and sofa bed were in very good condition. I booked direct by calling the number from the website. I let them know we wanted a nice unit since we often return to the same places if we are happy with them. Becky was very accommodating and helpful, giving me several options from which to choose with great rates, as well. The pool was very nice and clean with warm water. Hot tub was great, too. Showers and foot wash showers were available and in fine working order for returning from the beach. The condo property is very conveniently located with a shopping center with Dollar Tree and Publix grocery store right across the street. Beach was FABULOUS!! Very clean, flat and wide with lots of room. We were very happy with our stay at Gulf Strand Resort!!

Room Tip: Call the realty management company directly (number is on the website) for a great condo and a great...

Stayed here for six nights in September in room 508. On entering our condo we were quite pleased. The condo was very clean and up to date. We booked online direct with the owner, which leads me to believe most of these condos are independently owned, so obviously some are better than others. Everything we needed for our stay was provided, including our own laundry. The kitchen was clean and had new work tops. Living room was adequate with dinning table, sofa and cable TV. Bedroom was spacious with plenty of storage and the bed was comfy. The on-suite was clean and had new taps and a huge shower. We had a lovely balcony which has a part view of the beach. The only minus of the room is that it is close to the road, so it is a bit noisy. So if you want to be closer to the beach and away from the road noise I would recommend getting a room from one to four on any floor. The beach front was easily accessible and the pool and barbecue area are small but very acceptable. There are plenty of restaurants and other activities in the area to keep you busy. There are local shops nearby including a publix for your groceries which is just across the road.(very handy).
From what I've read about other condos in this complex this one seems to be quite good. We probably wont return because there are other places to visit, but I would recommend to friends.
