~ Easy access to the best of Port A. Walk to the beach on the private walkway, or drive all your gear there and set up base for the day. This section of BEACH IS AWESOME; it is very wide and separated from the car lanes by pylons, no worries about cars running over your beach blanket or sand castles. When you are ready the rest of Port A, the best restaurants and activities are a short 2 to 5 minute drive.~

The unit is casual and family friendly with activities to entertain everyone, including an assortment of videos, activities, cable TV, NETFLIX and wireless internet access. Kids LOVE the on site playscape. The second bedroom has been decorated especially for kids with an ocean theme with colorful fish, and there is a second TV and VCR (with NETFLIX and many kid/family movies) perfect for early morning or bed time videos.

Great access to beach. Great place for kids and families. Loved our stay, just wished for more time. Only negative was the grass needed to be mowed for the whole complex. Didn't ruin our stay though.

Management response:

So glad you enjoyed your beach time and thank you for sharing your experience. We're continuing to work with the management to keep the complex looking it's best.

The Sandy Turtle is a nice housekeeping condo rental. The Port A beach is accessed via a concrete and sand walkway (no boardwalk or bridge), and will be about a 5 minute walk from condo to beach. The pool at the complex is large with lots of seating. There is no spa or whirlpool. The condo is equipped with all...

Thank you for the comments. We hope to see you again.

My daughter and I had a great time watching Disney classics while taking a break from the sun. The condo is close to the pool, playground and the beach and is overall a...
