About Ronald Berges

Dr Ronald Berges is a native of Ovid, Colorado, but has lived and practiced medicine in Ottumwa, Iowa for 25 years. He is Medical Director of Behavioral Health Services at Mahaska Health Partnership.

Ronald Berges purchased this condo in 2015

Why Ronald Berges chose Florida Panhandle

A good friend from college introduced me to the Cape San Blas area. He owns the unit below this one. This property was attractive due to the proximity to the Gulf, the privacy, and the openness of the unit. It is perfect as a family getaway, couples retreat, and romantic hideaway. This unit was purchased from previous owner Gerald Allen and his daughter Roxanne, who has guided me in the transition to rental property owner.

What makes this condo unique

Even when the Cape is at the height of the busy summer season, it is "slow and relaxed". It's a very peaceful stretch of unspoiled, "Old Florida" sand. There are few places like this left to enjoy.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Roxanne, this was truly a lovely place to spend two weeks. Each place we've stayed over the years has had its own special charm, but yours was the most comfortable inside and the most beautiful outside. Your interior colors and furniture are so refreshing, and the cathedral ceiling and the high windows give so much light! It's been grand sitting on the deck and reading, watching the changing moods of the Gulf water, shelling, watching the dolphins that came almost every morning, watching the sun set. We wish you and your father well in renting it and for opportunities to spend quiet time here yourselves.

Antiqua Sunset was serene and relaxing.

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our serene and relaxing experience in the well maintained and organized Antiqua Sunset. The owner, Ron thinks of everything and is so accommodating. The minute we arrived, we were impressed with the beautiful view, the soft warm breeze in our face and an incredible view of sunrise, sunset, and the open starlit sky complete with the sound of the crashing surf from the top of the world. We got a good night's rest and then coffee on the elevated deck with such a fabulous view. The deck gets full sun and the house is very nicely decorated, comfortable and fully furnished. The open plan is great and the beds were comfortable. The place was clean and well organized. Everything was fabulous and the local store had everything. Ron recommended the best places to eat, shop, fish and tour. It was a wonderful time for our family and we would recommend it to anyone. Thanks again Ron for the time of our lives in your nice home on one of the most beautiful, quiet family beaches in the world. White sands, relaxation and brown tans. We loved it.

First Time to This Part of Florida

  • 5 of 5

Great place to kick back and relax. The sunsets are beautiful in the evening, and in the morning you can drink coffee from the deck and watch dolphins swim by. We found many nice scallop shells while walking the beach, and watched our neighbors catch fish. There are lots of places to eat in the area, and any kind of food you might want. The condo is beautiful, and has everything you could need. The four of us had a wonderful week. Try it out, you won't be disappointed.

Our First Time on the Cape But Not Our Last!!

  • 5 of 5

Spectacular views and very comfortable place to take the family on vacation. The condo has everything you could possibly want and the owner is awesome to deal with! While in the area we took a ride over to Panama city for a day and found ourselves wanting to get back to the Condo. Everything is so relaxing and we really enjoyed walking the beach and collecting sea shells. Our family absolutely loved the Cape and can't wait to go back! While you are there you have to catch a bite at "The Sandbucket" restaurant. Great food!

Wonderful experience staying at Ronald's property. He is extremely prompt to respond and gave us great tips while we were there! House is just steps from the beach with direct access! With two kids it was great to go back and forth from the house to the beach!!! We had a great time and can't wait to be back!!

First time to stay on the Cape

  • 5 of 5

Loved the way Ron has made his place a home away from home! Loved being right on the beach! Discovered amazing things! A Pink Meanie Jellyfish that is a new species! Neighbors that found a sea horse! Lots of shells! New shore birds! Saw dolphins almost every day playing

and leaping out of the water! Our favorite State park, St. Joe, was just 3 miles away!
