Thank you for writing a review. We appreciate your compliments of our Gumbo Limbo property and also your phone calls letting us know how beautiful your accommodation was.

This condo looks way better in person than in the pictures on its website. We were four friends and stayed at the Island Suite on the first floor: it has two big bedrooms one with a king bed and another one with a Queen. There's another queen bed in a den. Two full bathrooms, too. The living and dining room... More

Hello, Thank you kindly for your feedback. You are correct, the WiFi works best in the living room on the dining room table. We have 4 Internet boosters / extenders to provide the best WiFi possible. The Island Suite has concrete walls all around, so sometimes the signal is not as great in one of the back bedroom, but the... More

The rooms were very clean and accommodating. The kitchen was perfect size for lazy breakfast meals. With only 60 steps to the beach what could you want more? The owners were very nice and personable, making sure we were taking care of.

Thank you for your kind feedback, and I hope you except my apologies. The Island Suite is a ground floor apartment, while the Key West Suite is located directly above.
