About the Owner

We are originally from Northeast Ohio, relocated to Virginia in 2007, recently retired and relocated to Florida. We have been vacationing here since 1985 and in 2000 we purchased our first unit. Our children were very young when we first started coming down and now we see our 4 grandchildren enjoying this piece of Heaven.

ALMOST HEAVEN!!

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful Condo, all you need to bring is your toothbrush and swim suit. Georgia and Mike are very nice to work with. We were there for our 40th Anniversary and we will definitely be back. The Condo was clean and had everything you need. We would recommend this property to anyone looking for relaxation and peace and quiet and close to the BEACH. Georgia and Mike gave us several recommendations for restaurants and we enjoyed eating at too many of them. Thank You Georgia and Mike and God Bless You Both.

Great Holiday

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time at Sunset Cove, and what a perfect choice. A warm friendly welcome from the owners Mike and Georgia, such nice people to deal with. Other residents were also so friendly. The condo was really well furnished, excellent facilities and so clean. The décor was perfect for a beach location. Excellent TV/Cable system for those quiet nights in. Pool, picnic area and fishing dock were spot on. Location on a quiet cult-de-sac road, so close to the wonderful beach was perfect. Thank you Mike and Georgia, you helped us to have a wonderful vacation. Chris and Ann.

Almost Heaven...

  • 5 of 5

We have had the pleasure of staying in this beautiful little cul-de-sac more known as Almost Heaven two times. We are always thrilled to find availability and the welcoming warmth we received from Mike in Georgia is always a delight. The location of these condos is perfect, you get all the quiet and serenity you want with just steps away from some local fun, you can retreat to the beach across the street or jump in the car and drive down the coast to any portion of the beach you want to enjoy. All the people that live at almost heaven and all the people that visit are always polite and welcoming. It's very well-maintained and clean and the condo itself is always clean. Mike and George provide everything you could possibly need. This year we had the pleasure of meeting Mike and Georgia for the first time and true to our impression over the phone they are a very lovely couple and will do anything to make your trip extraordinary. We hope we get to stay with them on many more occasions, you are always our first pick when we are coming to this part Florida. Until we see you again, thank you for everything !!Carlo and Wendy

In Heaven!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time staying at Sunset Cove, in Almost Heaven- Living on Island Time. We found it on the internet and had some concerns that it would not be as nice as pictuerd. Boy were we wrong! The condo surpassed all our expectations! It was so clean and well decorated. We got the best nights ' sleep on a very comfortable bed with quite surroundings! On our first morning we walked (a very few steps) to the fantastic dock on the Intercoastal, to be greeted by a family of Manatees! Everyone staying there was friendly and respectful of the property and rules.

As if all of this isn't great enough, we were blessed to have Georgia and Mike, the owners, vacationing there at the same time. They are truly wonderful people who made us feel like family. We not only had the best vacation in our more than 20 years of coming to Florida, we have begun a friendship that we hope to maintain for years to come!

Great vacation for 2!

  • 5 of 5

This was our third stay at this location and it is always consistently clean and well maintained.

The area is peaceful and relaxing, but close enough to plenty of good restaurants and shopping.

The beach is wonderful and it's just a short walk across a non busy residential street.

The fishing dock area, which I liked to call the back yard, is so nice and clean. There is a barbeque grill and tables. It is peaceful to just sit on the dock and watch the sea life or boats. The owners are great! Always friendly and helpful!

We love staying here, and you will too!

The walks on the beach will bring many shells to your collection and never 2 the same.
