Very nice small beach side condo for short vacation.
Quaint Condo for Couples
This is a perfect location for a quiet vacation on the beach. The description and pictures and accurate of the property. We would love to come back!
Thanks, Shirley! Glad to hear you enjoyed your stay! Come back, soon!
First let's start w/ the good: 1) The beach is super quiet w/ very little "activity" so that is very peaceful. 2) The bed was super comfy. The bad: 1) It is NOT beachfront. It's maybe 'beach side' but not what I expected. The view off the balcony was horrible (a parking lot & the road) unless you sat in a teeny tiny corner to face the water. It certainly was not as expected. It is the 3rd condo to the back of the building, which means it's on the road, not the water. Pics were misleading. 2) Road construction was going on so EVERY morning by 7am, I was hearing the roar of large equipment. Many days the driveway was completely blocked so leaving by car was a challenge. IF I could get out, I had to wait for them to literally fill in the gaps so the car could make it through the entrance. Coming back in in the afternoon was also not possible. One day I ended up having to wait almost 90 minutes to just get back in so I ended up hanging out at Santini Plaza for a bit. Frustrating to say the least and it should have been disclosed PRIOR to my very late booking that road construction was going on. 3) The bathroom is so teeny that to sit on the toilet meant one elbow would hit the wall & the other hit the shower door unless it was open. 4) The air conditioner vent above the kitchen table dripped condensation. Thank God I saw it before I left my computer on the table. It would have been ruined! 5) The chairs at the beach could not be moved off the decking so getting close to the water with them was impossible. They were tethered. 6) The picnic table was so full of bird poop that it was unusable. I would think the condo association would keep that cleaner. 7) I had gone down there for a peaceful way to work while having time on the beach and had expected to be able to work on the balcony overlooking the water but that was impossible & anywhere that I could see the water w/ my laptop was without internet connection because it was too far away from the WIFI. So...the 5 days I spent there were either trying to work off the couch (the table was super tiny and impossible to spread out on) or NOT working so I could be on the beach. To say I was frustrated is an understatement. I realize not everyone goes to the beach to work, but that is my thoughtful place. I also disclosed that to the owner that that was my intention & instead of being forthright w/ the true situation, she let me waste my $ for her benefit. Disappointed.
I am so sorry you were disappointed with the condo. However, I feel it is unfair to claim my advertising was misleading. Please refer to picture numbers 5, 7, 8, 12 & 13 of my listing. They clearly show the orientation of the condo re views of the beach. The Shores consists of only 8 condos and the building IS beachfront (approximately 50' from the sand)!, It is not across the street or on the bayside - it is ON the Gulf. I don't understand - how was the beach "super quiet" and "peaceful" with all the noise you are complaining of? Unfortunately, road construction is out of my control. I was there, last month, and the construction was past our condos. The road improvements have been ongoing for about 6 years (It's a 10 year project). FYI - Workers are not allowed to begin until 8:00 AM - it's an ordinance. Please check out my other reviews. As you can see, the condo has been very satisfactory to other guests (even during the construction) - I have many guests that return year after year. I certainly wish you had contacted me re your displeasure, upon arrival. I may have been able to move you to another condo in the building with closer proximity to the beach. I strive to keep guests happy, but I can't do that if not informed of an issue.
This place was great for 2 people. The locations is just steps away from the beach one way and if you turn around you can catch the trolley to ride up to shopping and restaurants. I would say its great place to get away for 2 people. The sun set are so pretty to see from the beach front of the building. I would do this again for sure. The owner is great to work with.
Thanks so much! I appreciate you taking time to review. Hope to have you back, soon!
Perfect in every way
Photos were exactly right. Perfect for us two. Fully equipped kitchen even though we only had breakfast there. Comfortable, clean & quiet. Easy access to town or excursions. Chairs were placed perfectly for sun bathing & watching sunsets. Parking underneath kept our car cool. Went on off season so a few restaurants and boating excursions were closed but we found plenty to do. Would highly recommend!
So glad you enjoyed your vacation! Come back, soon!
Perfect for two!
My husband and I spent a wonderful week at this location. The condo was perfect. It was very clean. Couldn't have asked for a better stay!! Would definitely stay again.
So happy you enjoyed your stay! Hope to hear from you again, soon!
