About this rental
You don't pay a cleaning fee at a hotel; you won't pay for cleaning when you book this gem. Pride of ownership shows is this LOVELY 2BR/2BA 2nd floor condo with a full balcony. Unit is ON THE BEACH--no crossing the street to walk over to the beach; you are there. Check out the photos to see the beautiful kitchen with granite tops and stainless appliances. Both bathrooms have tub/shower with a lovely vanity and tops. The property has assigned parking so no confusion there. The unit has a 32 foot private balcony facing the intercoastal waterway with a spectacular view of the sunrise. There are outdoor charcoal grills for the taste of fresh grilling. This property has one of the largest pools of any other complex in the area with more than 50 lounge chairs and tables with chairs and umbrellas around. The pool is heated to 86 degrees for year round comfort. Best of all, many owners in the complex do not rent their unit so the complex usually is not crowded. Quite often, you could be the only one in the pool. Feel free to phone with any questions you may have.
LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION. You are staying on the beach. No crossing the street for access, no walking a block over to go to the beach. It's right outside your door.

About the owner: A true beach lover. It's so relaxing to listen to the waves and so much fun to walk and search for shells.
Why this property? The building is on the beach. However the view of this unit does not directly face the gulf; it has a water view of the intercoastal and the pool. You will save at least 20% by walking around the building to see the gulf.

Guestbook comments from the host:
Everyone is concerned about cleaning these days. The place was spotless. The pictures don’t do it justice. Staying right on the beach can’t get any better. Joyce was great to work with and I’m sure we will rebook another trip with her to the beach soon.

YES. Just show up with a swimming suit, toothbrush, and flip flops.
A delightful spot to enjoy the beach
Great location! Right on a gorgeous stretch of beach. We were slightly disappointed that this unit faces the pool, not the ocean—until we realized that the brutal afternoon sun makes the opposite units uninhabitable in the afternoon. This one stayed comfortably cool all day.The owner obviously paid close attention to details. The kitchen is stocked well enough that you could bake a cake, or cater a party for twenty people! Plenty of beach towels, chairs, even an umbrella. Coming from Arizona, we're especially jealous of the endless high-pressure water in the shower. Easy Wi-Fi, powerful air conditioner, covered parking.. this one checks all the boxes. If you have kids, it's walking distance to a mini-golf. We'll be back!

Pleasantly Surprised; Just as nice as the pics
Beautiful unit; nicely updated. Great value for the price. Beach is right there. Saved enough money by staying on the intercoastal side of the building to go out for dinner each night. Didn't mind making breakfast & lunch as the kitchen is very well stocked. Joyce is great to work with as she gave us ideas of points of interest and local attractions and popular restaurants.

The accommodations were wonderful. Very clean and spacious. I would definitely come back, however I would rather have a view of the ocean than the street. I guess I didn't understand the terminology when I booked the room.
