Favorite Places To Eat
We love to cook!. Sounds crazy but it provides so much freedom and costs so much less when traveling. Buddy's Fish Market is within walking distance and we get the freshest seafood for our home-cooked goodness! We do pick a few nights and go out or order in. A vacation wouldn't be complete if we didn't eat out.
Beachside dining is great at Hook'd, Runaway Island, and Sharky's. When the family is together we always make time for a trip to Pineapple Willy's!
C-Level is such an enjoyable local experience. When we want a real treat we go to Saltwater Grill!
The Terrace is west on Hwy 98 and has great cuisine. More for a romantic adult evening, one of the best chefs in PCB. Dusty's Oyster Bar and Thomas' Donuts are very close to our location on Front Beach Road.
We have a hidden gem in the PCB Conservation Park and Gayle's Trails and Camp Helen is a great place to kayak/canoe/paddleboard on Lake Powell. All three are favorites of nature lovers and those who want a day off the beaten path.

First Stay But Won’t Be Our Last!
We had a great week and Beach Fun 701 did not disappoint! The patio views are spectacular, the beach was so nice and the condo is lovely. The owners have thought of everything! The kitchen is so well appointed - everything we needed was at our fingertips! The beds were comfortable and the bed and bath linens were so nice - just like home! The convenience of this place can’t be beat. Our group enjoyed fun on the beach, golf, fine dining and plenty of shopping - all are a convenient drive away! Can’t wait to return!

Thank you so much for letting everyone know the details about your vacation experience. We loved sharing our condo with you and look forward to helping your second visit be just as memorable. Blessings and Safe Travels!
This condo and owner was perfect! We have rented from many different owners but Lou made sure that we had no problems and everything was just perfect for our stay. From a fully stocked condo to a welcome gift basket, to a magnificent view. It was all great and we had an amazing week. The elevators weren’t working but we texted Lou and she got right on the problem and made sure we had an answer quickly. The beach wasn’t over crowded and for us that’s just what we like. No crowds, clean condo, beautiful view. Perfect location as well with Winn Dixie right across the street. All in all we were so happy with our stay and felt right at home. This condo is worth every penny and you will not be disappointed. We will definitely be back!

Fun & Sun in 701
We had the best week ever! BeachFun701 is in a perfect location.We could walk across to Winn-Dixie for supplies, walk or short drive to pier park, and we loved the easy access to 98 to skip the traffic on front beach road. Plus, the beach in front of Aqua Vista was way less crowded than when we looked to the left and right of us. Our kids had plenty of space to spread out and play, without too many people.The condo was immaculate. Walking in the first day, to the beautiful and clean space and seeing the view was an amazing start to vacation. The condo kitchen was well stocked, their was lots of information for activities, the a/c felt amazing, and clear/concise communication. The whole condo is beautifully decorated and has lots of little extras that I've never had at other rentals. The owners have thought of everything to make this a home away from home, for whomever is visiting.Our kids had the best week ever! The memories made were priceless. We had the best vacation in beachfun 701. Our oldest wanted to stay forever.

Is close to the limelight and away from the main traffic areas.We will definitely include this place in our future travel plans.

You could not ask for more!
Upon entering the condo we were amazed by the panoramic view it offered. We were used to the 'railcar' style of condo where everything is more narrow and a linear set up. 701W is wide and the views are spectacular and vast. The decor was really nice and the furniture very comfortable. Guys, stake your claim to the Brown-Grey recliner. The kitchen was well appointed and very up to date appliances.The beach at this west-end complex is very clean and not crowded at all. Beach service was friendly and very helpful as well.The Christians were very pleasant to work with, and, actually remembered the trip was over my birthday and they left me a gift. Very thoughtful! If you are headed to PCB-this is the place to stay!!

Stuart, we are so happy you chose Beach Fun 701 for your Independence Day & Birthday Celebrations. Thank you for your review and kind words. Our guests and their comfort are important to us! Thank you!
I love this condo it’s beautiful and very clean. The views are spectacular with a wrap around balcony. You have the perfect spot to watch the sunset with a glass of wine. I never have to worry about it not being cleaned well. Three comfortable beds, enough room for my family to enjoy our time there. They have everything we would need.The beach is never crowded. No huge crowds to fight for a spot on the sand. The owners are great and quick to answer our questions. A grocery store across the street and walking to pier park you don’t even need a car. We will never stay anywhere else.
