Unique Benefits

I fell in love with this condo initially because of its location. My girls were babies at the time of purchase and I wanted a vacation property to be stress-free. The thought of packing up all our beach needs, dragging it & my babies to a spot 'steps from the beach' or "near the beach" didn't sound stress-free. I didn't want to be 'near' the beach, I wanted a property ON the beach. Our building is located directly on the Gulf of Mexico. I love to simply walk outside & this stunning beach is at your feet.
Our condo has a private fishing pier. There are a few piers on the beach, but you'll have to pay for admission. Not on our pier! You'll have access to this amazing pier that's private to our building. I feel grateful every time I step foot on it. We also have both a pool & hot tub. They're heated year-round.
Parking at a beach location typically comes at a premium. Not here,- with your rental, you'll receive 2 parking permits.

Why Kids Love It

With the Gulf, a beautiful pool on the beachside and attractions in all directions - boredom isn't happening. Water sports, parks, Smuggler Cove Adventure Golf, Seaside Bird Sanctuary, Splash Harbour Water Park, Busch Gardens (35 miles), Disney World (90 miles)

About the owner: Born & raised near Ann Arbor, I'm a Michigander through & through. Go Blue!
I am the proudest mother of 2 beautiful girls & 3 amazing dogs!

Why this property? I fell in love with this condo initially because of its location. My girls were babies at the time of purchase and I wanted a vacation property to be stress-free. The thought of packing up all our beach needs, dragging it & my babies to a spot 'steps from the beach' didn't sound stress-free. I didn't want to be 'near' the beach, I wanted a property ON the beach. I love to simply walk outside & this stunning beach is at your feet.

Guestbook comments from the host:

The property was great. It was clean and very large. My wife and I stayed with my daughter, son in law, grand daughter age 3 1/2 and grandson 1 1/2. The beach and heated pool got plenty of our time. We had all of the beach supplies that we needed, chairs, umbrellas, blankets, toys and shovels etc.

It afforded a wonderful holiday vacation. Plenty of places to eat and visit. We’ll be back!


Nov 2020

The property was excellent for our family. Kitchen well stocked and tons of beach chairs and sand toys. The only thing that kept it from being 5 stars was the twin beds. Not most comfortable and was very creaky. We loved the pool and hot tub.


Oct 2020

Our family ranging from 42 to 6 loved the property. Pool, beach and fishing pier were all a big hit. Melvin, the evening security guard was top notch. He really looked out for all the families staying at the sand dollar and made sure we had a great stay. We enjoyed being so close to Clearwater and St. Johns. One of the highlights of our trip was seeing a pod of dolphins while jet skiing in the bay at St. Johns. Restaurants in the area were top notch. Definitely recommend Guppys and the Conch Republic.


Jul 2020

Unit 512 was perfect for 5 adults and 1 infant. Plenty of room for everyone, pack n play and highchair where great to have. The views from the balcony were just as described....AMAZING.

The elevator is very slow and there is only one for the condo complex so that is a downfall, but the only one.


Jul 2019

1st time staying and we loved it. Beautiful views and beautifully well kept 3 BR/2 ba directly on the gulf. Will come back again.

Amazing family vacation

The condo was clean, beautiful, and had awesome water views. The pool was never crowded and had plenty of chairs. Cindy was amazing to rent from, and we plan on coming back next year!

Winter getaway

We stayed in this unit for 2 1/2 months and enjoyed every minute. It was our home away from home. The owner, Cindy, was awesome to work with and hoping to rent again.

Right on the Gulf - Beautiful views!

The location is amazing! This condo is large and well appointed. I'm amazed that I was able to book a 3 bedroom/2 bath, on the Gulf, for less than a standard hotel room. The owner (Cindy) was very friendly & helpful. She made it easy book, answered all our questions and made us feel right at home. She has the condo well-stocked for cooking & even had beach toys for the kids. Best of all, my husband really enjoyed fishing off their private pier! I haven't found that available at any other location. It also has both a pool & hot tub.
