Loved this condo! Great location! Spacious with nice furnishings. The amenities were amazing from the great pools, to the movie theatre, grill, right across the street from Stewart Beach and great view at night of the pleasure Pier. Rita was delightful to deal with. Will definitely go back!

It was an amazing vacation! The condo was lovely! Rita was very accommodating. The amenities were a family highlight! We enjoyed fantastic balcony views (it was a large balcony on a corner & had a small table with a couple of chairs), the pool table in the game room was a big hit, watched a movie in the theater room, spent time in the pool (which had beautiful beach views), and walked to the beach. There were nearby restaurants, a Walgreens very close, & the ferry was pretty close too! The condo was my 14 year-old son's favorite part of the vacation!
It was great! Beautiful location! The condo staff were very pleasant also.
Just make sure to bring some extra towels for the beach & pool.

Liked best: The views are 270 degrees because of the corner balcony. It's amazing to watch the ports 24/7.
Liked least: Would have liked wifi in the condo for teens. It is available on 6th floor only. :)

“Nice spot close to the beach”
Reviewed 7 April 2015 for a stay in March 2015

people found this review helpful

Our family was comfortable in this beachside condo. Pretty views, attractively furnished. Nice bathrooms. Well equipped kitchen. Pool and hot tub were under extended repair, which was disappointing. Beds were adequately comfortable. Only a couple of missing essentials (like extra TP or matches for the multiple candles). Kids will need close assistance crossing Seawall Blvd to the beach, as there is no functioning crosswalk for this busy thoroughfare. Restaurants in the area offer variety of good fare. There is a market a couple of blocks away to assist with eating in.

Thanks. We're happy to report that the pool repairs are complete as of April 15, 2015. So, all the aquatic fun is available again, NOW.

Our sincere apologies if the number of extra TPs was not sufficient. That problem has now been resolved.

The candles are for decoration and aroma. We have so many that the cleaning charges would be quite high if every candle started being lit. Additionally, we have to be careful about fire hazards in a high-rise. We appreciate your understanding.

Thanksgiving with Papa
Being the busy person that I am, I decided to plan a Thanksgiving celebration with my aging dad and new family members. The resort and staff were so accommodating. They made the event much more than any of my family expected. The moment we walked in to building and the room, we made to feeling welcome and special. All of the other guest and tenants were helpful, pleasant and accommodating. The room and resort was upscale, clean and completed stocked. Quoting, my Dad, as he watched his children, grandchildren, great-grandchildren and great-great grandchild in the barbeque area with seated bar hot tub “this place is above 5 stars”. Thank you Rita and staff, can we book for next year!!!!!!!

Thanks a lot for your kind words. We are so glad that you & your family had so much fun. The movie-room is another amenity you should try with your family next time.
