Covered patio and table with umbrella and four cushioned chairs to relax and feel the gulf breezes and hear the waves splashing against the shore.

There is a water hose and shower outside the unit for your use and ALSO ANOTHER one at the laundry room which is a common area for all guests AND allows a bigger area for washing off gear, showering outdoors, etc.
There is a bike trail nearby so you can walk or ride your bikes all around the island. Kayaking, surf-fishing, fishing from bridge or State Park, scuba diving and snorkeling are very popular on the Island. Don't forget your fishing gear.
Our unit is new to the rental market and you will enjoy the clean, fresh unit during your stay. Cable and Free WIFI. Our condo offers an AM/FM radio in the kitchen for your enjoyment, we recommend the local station 100.5 Oyster Radio that features Beach Music, local events, Island history and WEATHER UPDATES AND WARNINGS. IN THE CASE OF A HURRICANE WATCH, the Island may be evacuated. If this happens during your stay, please take all of your belongings with you at the time you vacate as no-one will be allowed back on the Island and we can not be responsible for your belongings.
While we love pets, due to family allergies and the desire to make our condo available for others with allergies, we have decided to make our condo pet-free and smoke-free. You are allowed to SMOKE OUTSIDE the condo and in the common areas. I receive many inquiries asking me to allow them to bring their small pet, sorry, but once I make one exception, it is no longer considered pet-free. As important as our bookings are to us, our word that it is pet-free is more important than the money. IF YOU BRING YOUR PET OR SMOKE INSIDE THE UNIT, you will be asked to leave and also forfeit your deposit.
We have a small deposit that is refunded within 7 days of your departure and have tried to keep the rates as low as possible .
There is a lock box on the front door for your convenience. The code will be sent to you prior to your reserved date. Please contact me if you have not received it by your check-in date. For your safety and protection, this code is changed on a regular basis.
Unlike hotels, etc., NO SALES TAXES are added at checkout! VRBO does apply a small fee for the Owner and the Traveler; however, we have found it to be less costly than the Rental Companies currently charge which makes their rates much higher.
Our housekeeper charges $105 and that is what I have to charge you. Please follow the check-out rules posted in the Unit to receive a full refund on your deposit. If the housekeeper charges me more, I have to pass it on to you. She contacts me immediately after cleaning and I request your deposit be refunded from VRBO at that time.
NOTE: I DO NOT have access to your phone number until you have actually booked your stay so if you would like me to call you, please text me your phone number with your request so that I may do so.
PLEASE NOTE: There are NO LIFEGUARDS or safe swimming FLAGS on the beaches near the condo, swim at your own risk and please be mindful of rip currents and use caution when swimming in the ocean. Rip currents can be present at any time of the year, but most especially present during stormy weather. Please research rip currents and be familiar with what to do in case you or a family member is caught up in a rip current.
At no time are bonfires allowed on the beach OR on the condo premises. There is a charcoal BBQ Grill at Unit #4 and also a Park-Style grill in front of our building near the picnic tables, please bring your own charcoal and lighter fluid and pull the grill away from the building and covered patio before grilling.
Please DO NOT leave trash, chairs, umbrellas or any beach gear on the Beach over night. Please DO NOT dig holes unless you cover them up before leaving the beach. Our baby sea turtles can not get out of the holes and it is also dangerous for those of us that love that night stroll on the beach. There is a County Ordinance that you can not leave beach chairs, towels or any personal items on the beach after 9:00 pm or before 7:00 am. If these items are left on the beach before/after that time, BEACH PATROL will pick them up.
There is a (one) folding beach chair outside the condo for your use during your stay. Please rinse the sand and salt water off prior to your departure.
NOTE: WEEKLY AND MONTHLY RATES ARE FOR APPROVED GUESTS ONLY, NO SUB-RENTALS UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCE!
I also have an adjoining unit that will be listed on VRBO beginning in 2018, so be sure to Private message me for more information if you are interested in a summer booking on it. There are also three other rental units on the premises that are on VRBO if you would like to have friends or family nearby. I will be glad to give you the VRBO #'s at your request.
Please feel free to water the beautiful hibiscus tree outside the door if you feel it is needed during your stay. We look forward to having you as our guests and hope you will book with us. Thanks, Phyllis+ More
