This is a lovely 6th floor condo that provides gorgeous views of the Gulf (from the living room) and the bay (from the bedroom). The owner, Margaret S., is friendly and accommodating, and she has thought of everything. The condo is fully stocked. Not only are there plenty of towels, linens, silverware, and plates, but there are also beach chairs/umbrella; board games and jigsaw puzzles; a CD player, basic cable tv, wifi, novels, and local info; cleaning products, a vacuum, and a laundry basket if you like to do that kind of thing while vacationing; and a serving tray with a teapot, gourmet tea, and chocolate biscotti!
The condo unit is decorated in shades of turquoise, grey, and sandy beige, with a seashore theme and lots of one-of-a-kind decorative items. The kitchen/living room is generously sized and well organized. There is one bedroom and one full bath. The screened-in balcony/porch is located just off the living room and provides an unimpeded southwestern view of the shore. The balcony is furnished with a ceiling fan, chaise lounge, a table, and 4 chairs, and is a comfortable place to sip your tea in the morning, eat lunch in the early afternoon, or watch the sunset in the evening. (The neighboring balconies are staggered, so although you can hear others on their balconies, you can't readily see them, and there is a sense of privacy.) While we were there, we were lucky to enjoy the Supermoon, which rose over the bay and set early morning, reflected in the Gulf (as the sun rose over the bay). Awesome sight!
Serving the entire building (8 floors and maybe 48 units?) are a swimming pool, shuffleboard, laundry room, 2 gas grills, and some patio seating. There is ample gated parking, accessible by keycard, and there is private access to the beach.
