Just FABULOUS!!!!

Can not state enough how much we loved our stay at Smuggler's Cove!!! Our unit...212 was the best location! The back of our unit faced the beautiful bay garden side and we were able to enjoy the sunrise every morning! Also, in the evenings, the bay side gardens are softly lite...it's just gorgeous and extremely well maintained! At the opposite end of our unit was our bedroom and that window faced the Gulf so we could see both sides from our unit! What a treat! The place is so well maintained and so clean, which is a really big deal to us! The pool area was great! Clean and once again well maintained! They not only provide lounge chairs and umbrellas for the beach, but have a chest full of fun stuff for the pool! We floated on noodles in the pool every day! We also enjoyed an orange creamsicle and root beer float for a dollar while poolside the one day! The location of Smuggler's Cove also can't be beat! Bay on one side...beach directly across the street, but also some really great restaurants all within walking distance! The free trolley stop is also extremely close! Check-in was a breeze as well as check-out. I have to give a big shout-out to Lorilai for all her patience! We had concerns about the red tide as well as COVID precautions being taken. She was so kind :-) We are SO HAPPY we found this place! It was truly one of the most relaxed, memorable vacations we have ever taken!
