My husband and I enjoyed 5 nights here with our 6 month old - we were looking for easy beach access and the comforts of home and this was perfect. The property is really charming, especially compared to the others around, and the hide away suite is a good size with a very large bed and nice appliances. It's an...

I wished you would have contacted me (you knew that I am available almost 24/7) for any items you needed because we have a storage room on side where we keep extra items like pillows, blankets or cutting boards :) We hope to welcome...

Dear guests, Thank you for your review. I am saddened by your description of the Island Suite. This suite has been beautifully updated, repainted entirely, and is described on ALL webpages as a 2 bedroom plus a "den" apartment. The den is a spacious and beautiful extra room with windows and privacy blinds. This apartment can accommodate 6 people comfortably...

First let me say that Virginia was so nice and helpful. I would not hesitate to rent from her again. She truly takes pride in her rentals and would do anything she could to make you happy while you are there. She let us check in a little early since the unit was vacant and we really appeciated that.

Have been here several times for beach trips with my friends. We always have a wonderful relaxing time! Pool is gorgeous, and landscaping and decorations around the outside areas is lush and tropical. We like staying in the downstairs unit(Island suite) with 2 bedrooms, and it is very well equipped, and everything nicely decorated and very clean. We rotate between...

Thank you for writing a review. We appreciate your compliments of our Gumbo Limbo property and also your phone calls letting us know how beautiful your accommodation was. However, it saddens me to hear a negative review due to noise because I cannot take the building down to rebuild it with a better sound structure. In a resort setting we...

This condo looks way better in person than in the pictures on its website. We were four friends and stayed at the Island Suite on the first floor: it has two big bedrooms one with a king bed and another one with a Queen. There's another queen bed in a den. Two full bathrooms, too. The living and dining room...

Hello, Thank you kindly for your feedback. You are correct, the WiFi works best in the living room on the dining room table. We have 4 Internet boosters / extenders to provide the best WiFi possible. The Island Suite has concrete walls all around, so sometimes the signal is not as great in one of the back bedroom, but the...
