About this listing

The space

This charming one-bedroom upstairs villa (unit 5A) is located across the road from an undeveloped beach park - for spectacular view and access to the Gulf of Mexico beach.

The sugar-white sands and aqua-blue water make you feel you are in the Caribbean!!!

Sleeps two in a queen-sized be with private bath. A pull-out sleeper sofa sleeps two with a hall bath.

Just steps to the beach and community pool.

Top unit views of the gulf and lake water surface.

Crab Trap restaurant is diagonally across street. Great place for cool drink while tanning at the beach or pool - also great seafood for lunch or dinner.

Surf fishing is great!

The kids love to catch sand crabs on the beach at night - armed with a flashlight and small crab net!

Deep sea fishing, para-sailing, dolphin watching, jet ski rentals are just a few minutes away.

Bicycle rentals are nearby

Prices are plus 11% tax and a cleaning fee

The place was beautiful! Steps away from the beach! 2 views instead of one! My boys love the lake in the back because every time they stepped outside there was always turtles or fishes to see!

Repeat visitor to Bob's condo. As usual we had a wonderful time. Location and community is fantastic. Wonderful for families. Could use some updating but doesn't prevent you from having a great time by any means. We had a little issue checking in on time due to the cleaning crew from the property management company. Prior guests had thrown a huge party and left the place a mess but bob made sure we were taken care of! We will be back!

This property is in a great location and has a great view! Easy access to the public beach right across the road. And it has an outdoor shower and a clean pool! You won't be disappointed with these aspects. Plenty of parking is available. But the unit itself needs some renovations: the furniture and wall hangings are uninspiring, the cabinets, tile, and wall paint (w/scuff marks) look like original builder grade, there is water damage on parts of the door jambs, thresh, and trim, bathroom shower and fixtures need some caulking, the coffee maker was faulty (it kept spilling over during brewing), mini-blinds on some of the front windows were stuck / binding / non-operational. Also, the locks were changed during our visit. We were provided with instructions with the new code for the new locks, but the code did not work. While we returned from the beach with the kids anxious for some A/C and the bathroom, we spent 10 minutes outside locked out of our rental until we could find the phone number of the management company and work with them to remotely enable the new lock to work. After it was installed, it does not appear that anyone did a test run with the new code to ensure that it worked properly. Hence, we were the guinea pigs testing the code for the first time. Overall, the unit was satisfactory and served its purpose, but it did not delight. Some non-functional items should be fixed (coffee maker, blinds). It could also use some investment to bring it up to expectations for décor / appearance.

Best location you can find, with sea on one end and lake on the other. Bob was very responsive, got the booking confirmed in no time. Check in was a breeze, every thing went well until then, just when we entered the place, it was not cleaned after the previous guest and we were really disappointed after the long day of travel. Had to wait for 3 hours to get the cleaning done. Altogether it would have been the best trip if only the room was clean.
