  • Very nice!

    Clean, comfortable, convenient location and lovely view of the bay - dolphin watching was a highlight! Well stocked kitchen and thoughtful kitchen supplies provided. Literally next door to Doc Ford's - good food and drinks, friendly service!

  • Excellent, Clean Getaway

    5/5

    Very cute condo with beach-themed decor, EXACTLY as seen in the listing photos. Immaculately clean. Plenty of things to do inside if you were stuck on a rainy day: TV, books, games, even binoculars for bird watching. Patio is lovely and has a nice view of the water. Something that stood out to me was that there was no question how to use anything in the apartment: all light/fan switches were clearly labeled and had remotes nearby. Furniture is comfy. Bar stools are not so tall that a short person has trouble getting in them (I'm 5'3 and I tested this haha). I consider myself an extremely picky person, and there was not one single thing about this place that was less than perfect. Even the community amenities were great: the hot tub was good and hot with good, strong jets. Pool was clean (I did not swim). Parking is very close to the building with 2 elevators and luggage carts you can use. Well-stocked with all the things you might need for a weekend away-or longer. The fridge even had complimentary water bottles. Really, everything was just amazeballs. The guest contact Kimberly was on point: I did have a few questions both before and during the stay, and she was responsive and friendly.

    ABSOLUTELY an amazing place!

    5/5

    I am the finickiest of the finicky about many things when I travel, and I am an avid reader and writer of reviews. Grab a cuppa and sit back, because this one's got some meat.

    First, I am mobility impaired, and to my pleasant surprise the parking lot was very close to the elevators. Short walk-win! Working elevators-2 of them-win! Luggage carts-win! Elevator entrance very close to entrance for pool and hot tub-win win!

    The walkway from the elevator to the unit was smooth and had railings. This is not, of course, within the homeowner;s control, but it is worth noting that if you use a cane or mobility aid like me, you will also have a sturdy railing to grab in case you wobble a bit.

    I am not familiar with using keypad door locks so that took a sec to get into the unit. I opened the door to a cool, exceptionally clean and fresh-smelling-but-not-overly-so home. Now let me start the picking apart.

    The floors-clean. Walls-clean. Countertops, flat surfaces, clean. I work in the travel industry and I cannot help but observe the little things because it is my job to do so from behind my desk every day. You know how some places you stay, well maybe it LOOKS ok but there's some dust between the fridge and the wall? Not here. Maybe a few scuff marks on the floor? Keep looking. Or how about that one chair that creaks when you sit in it? Nope. Not in this place.

    It was FABULOUS.

    Literally EVERY surface was immaculate. No dust on the ceiling fan. No swiping your finger across the tv stand and getting a little smudge. (I didnt do that, for the record, but everything literally GLEAMED).

    The furniture is comfortable enough and lived-in enough to be just right, but not old looking or faded. There's loads of stuff to do if you got stuck inside on a rainy day: games, books, etc. There were even complimentary water bottles left by the cleaning company and binoculars for watching birds or maybe the boats on the water.

    The bedroom and living area both open out to the balcony with your choice of chairs and tables. The unit is on sort of a corner, so it feels more private. I did sit there for a time and just enjoy the breeze.

    The outdoor amenities were in a gated area, but you get the code for this so again, private. Hot tub-my reason for booking- was GOOD AND HOT. I soaked away some tension under a sunny but mild Florida day. I did not use the pool, but Inspector Gadget me took a peek-crystal clear and clean. Nary a leaf to be found in it.

    The aesthetics of the place were amazing. Really, I live in Florida, and this was as beachy as it gets (someone;s been shopping at Bealls, I think, because these were not cheapo decorations.) Tastefully done with absolutely a true beach vibe. Combine this with the stunning views of the water and palms outside, and you have a perfect getaway.

    The last thing I want to say is the Guest Contact was 100% communicative. I did have some questions (mostly cause I'm old and couldn't figure out the door thingy haha) and she was on top of it within minutes. The only regrets I have are that I did not stay longer and I did not have cash to leave the cleaners a tip, because really the place was fantastic.

    I have never stayed in a vacation rental before this one, and my first time was a phenomenal experience. I will be back! Thankyou to the owners for allowing me to experience your home and to the Guest contact for making me feel AT home while I was there.First, I am mobility impaired, and to my pleasant surprise the parking lot was very close to the elevators.
