“Relaxing Beach Birthday 8/23-27”
Reviewed August 28, 2013 via mobile

Stayed for a few nights to celebrate 30th bday :) First time staying here;easy to find and way easy late check in(check in at condo office down the street..pick up a phone and they give you instructions); nice and clean and quiet (at times heard neighbors but again it is an older condo so no big deal). Also at check in there's a cleaning $99 fee..I was aware when I booked to condo but bad reviews BC of that "hidden" fee are ridiculous! That fee is not hidden at time of booking. Great location...we walked across a small street and thru the locked gate for the condo that led to a private walkway. The office staff very nice and luckily didn't have any maintenance issues but they did inform us to call anytime if we had issues. Clean pool and hot tub. Large kitchen with all appliances and supplies(pots/pans/bowls/cups/utensils). Free DVD rentals (you are given a card at check in). And all we had to do upon leaving was put dishes in dishwasher and throw out our trash. No big deal BC again on check in you are given that info. It's not a hotel so no staff constantly knocking on door and coming in but you are expected to pick up after yourself. Overall we enjoyed the stay and can't beat the price especially for the great location!

The condo was average nothing amazing very small, I would stay there again we had a good time. Only wish they allowed pets! That would have made our trip even better. Our dog is like one of the family I hated leaving her behind:( I feel that since this is just a three story complex with very few rooms with a decent view they could allow pets. I would be willing to pay an extra $100 a week if they would allow them.

I did like the fact that it is a small complex easier to get around in. The pools were very clean traffic crossing the street could be a pain at times but we managed fine. Taking luggage up three stories was a pain in the butt but as I said if they allowed pets I would go back. Really your on the beach more than in a room any way. All in all it was fine the kids had fun and it was time with the family so that makes any trip worth it;)

Gulfview allow pets please!!! If they are well behaved and crated when their owners are away from the room there is no reason why you can not allow pets. Your complex is one of the very few that doesn't allow pets so please reconsider:(

Rented a condo privately thru the owner and it was just a great experience. Condo was immaculate and stocked with everything you could ask for. Owner lives close by and was on hand either in person or by phone for anything we needed. Building itself is located right across street and looks to be well maintained. Pools and jacuzzi were clean and well maintained. Not too busy either . Loved that we could swim until 11pm at night, kids loved that ! Security staff were always around the premises and very friendly too. Everything in walking distance too. Our condo was 3rd floor Gulf view and it was beautiful. Nice that we were located right across hallway from laundry facility in building. Everyone was so helpful and kind taking turns using the washer and dryers. We were able to leave pool floats right outside our door and no worries about anyone taking them. We would go here again in a heartbeat! Enjoyed everything about this place!

Quiet, peaceful and just a few steps to beach. Great value, great locale. Unit is always spotless. My 5 year old loves the pools and beautiful beach. Although this unit doesn't have a perfect view of the Gulf, it is just abovve the pool. We like the serentity here.

Room Tip: Gulfview 226 owner is great and prices are ridiculously low.

The condo was great. Staff were very friendly. It was literally a 2 minute walk from door to water. We had a fantastic time and the condo was very comfortable and had just what we needed! We will most definitely come back again

I stayed at the Gulfview Condo, unit 226. I would recommend staying here only if you can't afford another place or if it's a last-minute trip and everything else is booked. I booked this condo because we needed a vacation, but didn't want to blow our budget. So, like I always tell my kids...you get what you pay for. I guess I can't complain since it was under $800 for 6 nights. Although, we left early because we just couldn't seem to get comfortable, and the weather just wasn't cooperating. The location is fantastic, but the condo itself was a bit small even with the 2 bunk beds. The shower drain was slow, and some mold growing in the corners. Furniture needs to be replaced. The kitchen itself was clean, but lacking some essential small items. The bed was extremely hard, very uncomfortable. Also, beware the entryway and the window in the BR is right outside the pool, so you will be able to hear every word coming from pool area. Our first night we had spring breakers out there til about 12am, screaming, drinking, and someone was actually playing their guitar. Being on the 2nd floor means you have "tenants" above you. And at times that was worse! At one point, we just couldn't stand the banging any longer and I went upstairs to let those guests know how loud it was beneath them and that my kids had been awoken at 7am. The whole place has paper thin walls. All in all, I won't be staying here again. I will definitely go the higher end route.
