The perfect beach condo, located within walking distance of Time Square, but just north of the traffic. Riptide condos is a low rise condo located just across the street from a gorgeous beach. Condo 13 is on the ground floor and has two bedrooms, 1.5 bathrooms.. The kitchen is well equipped, the beds are made with fine linens and towels are provided. The canal with direct access to the Gulf is located on the back side of the property. There is a lovely deck overlooking the canal. Some guests have spotted manatees swimming there. Riptide has kayaks and bicycles available for a nominal fee. This is the best of the Island--the beach on one side and the canal on the other. There is a gas grill located right behind the condo, beach chairs are provided. While two parking spaces are available, ...The perfect beach condo, located within walking distance of Time Square, but just north of the traffic.

This condominium was an absolutely fabulous area to vacation. It has an updated, full bathroom, along with a second bathroom. This really helped with the "teenagers" that we brought with us for spring break. There is updated tile floors in the entire condo. The condo...More
