Would have gotten 5 stars but there was a hole in the bathroom door and the tv was small
Thank you for your feedback, Leeann! We are glad you enjoyed your stay. We appreciate you letting us know there is room for improvement, and we are happy to report that the wall has been repaired, and we are looking into updating the tv. We hope to have another chance to impress you in the future!

The penthouse studio was perfect for the 2 of us. Beautiful view of the gulf and part of the bay. Easy beach access and a beautiful pool deck.
Dwayne B.Sep 2019
View from room was great. Great room for a weekend trip.
Jerica H.Aug 2019
The room we were staying at had no ice or ice machine in the fridge. We were on the top floor and had to go all the way to the bottom floor every time just to get ice and on top of that the hotel CHARGED for the ice! How are you supposed to keep your drinks cold on the beach without ice?
Debra G.Aug 2019
End unit on the 22nd floor ensured awesome views of the ocean, sunsets, and quiet from the street noises below. Loved the soaking tub and separate shower. Bed was comfy. Great great location as well, I’ll definitely rent this place again.
Jared W.Jun 2019
beautiful view...excellent price....great service
Myncie C.Jun 2019
None of the hotel staff knew that we booked the room which led to the security guard not letting us go to our room because we did not have a parking pass which was in our room. We had to go to the welcome center which did not have our parking pass because it was in our room, finally after an hour of runing around and calling tech support and having them speak through our cell phone to the guard were we permitted to go to our room.
We are glad you enjoyed your stay, Myncie! We are sorry for any confusion caused by complex staff. Reservation details for our guests are furnished to security staff after booking information is received though we do apologize for any oversight leading to complications upon arrival. We hope to host you again soon!

The studio had an incredible view of the beach! Room was nice and clean when my wife and I arrived. Robin was extremely helpful in everything! Would recommend this property to anyone!
James D.Mar 2019
The view was great , place was clean & quite
Terrius G.Jan 2019
simply put, I WAS SO HAPPY.
like having a dream that you never wanted to wake up from and tried to hold on to it as long as you could.
Robin R.Jan 2019
The View. Perfect view of the white sand and emerald waters from the bed and small balcony. It is small, an efficiency with very small kitchenette and mini-fridge. Large bathroom with garden tub and walk-in shower, and large dressing area were nice. The best part is the quiet beach away from the crowds and a gorgeous heated pool and 2 large hot tubs. I was swimming in January. There was still cosmetic construction from hurricane repairs, and a lot of maintenance was being done in the building when I was there, so some disruption for me, but I think they are done as of 1/25/19. Vacasa, the property management firm, was AWESOME. Yes, with a phone call, they replace the bed!! The bed was bad, as you can see in previous reviews, but all I had to do was call Vacasa and the manager had a new mattress delivered within 48 hours of my 10-day stay. The unit is a bit small for a long stay, but I made due and enjoyed the view.
Kris N.Dec 2018
Room was very nice. Great view,very friendly and helpful security. The poll and hot tub area was shut down due to damage from storm it looked like but other than that everything was great. The only complaint and it is a huge one,would be the bed. We seen other reviews when we were thinking about this place and all said the bed was terrible. To say the bed was terrible would be an insult to terrible. For God sake put a few dollars in to a new mattress and there is really nothing else to gripe about. It's a beautiful place with great amenities and scenery. The bed will destroy everything you will find great about this place unfortunately. I honestly would rather sleep in my truck than ever sleep in that bed again. I honestly hope that management will really look in to this situation and change the only thing that needs to be changed to make this place a perfect vacation home.
We so glad this guest enjoyed their stay! We appreciate your feedback regarding the mattress and we will be sure to address this with the homeowner for their consideration. We look forward to hosting this guest again soon!

The rooms view is perfect. Would def stay again.
Pablo S.Oct 2018
Has everything you need. I was a single traveler and it was well appointed.
Brittany H.Sep 2018
I would like to start by saying boardwalk resort is SO nice. I felt like I was at an all inclusive resort with it being gated and having security. There is a bar and grill and a corner store. There is a splash pad for the kids and a sloped access to the large pool. The building is very nice. This unit is on the top floor (22) and has an amazing view from the bedside balcony of the gulf and the golf course. We never noticed it was part of a penthouse. It was very quiet. The bathroom needs some maintenance. A towel rod was torn down and the baseboards looked to have been exposed to flooding. There is a coffee pot but you will need to buy filters for it. No trouble with WI-FI. We unfortunately came during the red tide and didn’t get to spend much time on the beach due to allergies, dead fish/bones, and a very offensive smell.
Beverly A.Sep 2018
Great for 1 or 2 adults. Was quiet, great view. On the beach.
Eric C.Sep 2018
Loved the entire condominium it was very nice and private. The room is perfect for a couple to stay. The spa tub is spectacular. Will stay there again.
Thanh L.Sep 2018
The view was amazing! Can't get a better view from the beach front, to the main front beach. Room was clean, other than that, it could done a better job sweeping the sand on the floor.
Williams O.Apr 2018
Adequate space, especially the sizeable bathroom with both a tub and a separate stand up shower. Great view as well. Only downside is the lack of a stovetop however understandable, given 2212 is an attachment to the main penthouse @ 2211, which they inform you of. If you aren’t planning on staying long or cooking, a microwave as well as a refrigerator is provided.
Kimberly W.Feb 2018
I would definitely use vacasa again
Trellis I.Jan 2018
My husband and I stayed here for a short honeymoon trip, we loved it only wished we could have stayed longer. Gorgeous view, loved that the property was gated, perfect for two people we will definitely be back.
Emily D.Nov 2017
I would absolutely stay in this room again. It was clean (but not spotless) and quiet. The bed was comfortable enough, and the view was much better than I was expecting. I wish it was closer (walking distance-wise) to attractions such as Pier Park, but it wasn't inconvenient to drive. We felt very safe staying here.
David B.Nov 2017
This was a great location and a nice unit.
Amy N.Oct 2017
We will definitely be using Vacasa again but not this unit. The beach was beautiful and the location was great. The unit was very clean. But we were not told that this studio unit was actually an extra bedroom to the main unit. We heard (a baby) and smelled everything from the main unit. The internet hardly ever worked. There were no balcony chairs just a small side table. Also, guests had to walk through the basment garage to get to pool and beach. There may have been ramps but all we saw were steps near by. Very hard with a wagon or strollers. The view was nice being on the 22nd floor. We have stayed at many condos but not this one again.
We are sorry to see there were some frustrations with this visit. We did offer to bring the guest patio chairs, but they declined. The WiFi is spotty in this area, and noise does travel. We apologize if this was difficult for our guest.
Randy B.Sep 2017
This property is well maintained and in a great location. It is our 2nd year there and it is a good value for the cost.
Jessica H.Sep 2017
This is the second time we've stayed in this unit. The off season rates cannot be beat. You sacrifice a little bit by the balcony being on the side of the building because you don't get a full ocean view, but the nighttime view of Thomas Drive and the golf course totally makes up for it. The unit is perfect for a couple and the bathroom is huge. Bed is large and very comfortable. This is such a good spot on the beach, close to everything, and the building & pool are beautiful.
The only tips for travelers I have are to bring a broom if you are a clean freak like me because the floor is tile and since the room is small sand accumulates on the floor quickly. Also bring plenty of clothes because there is no washer or dryer.
Overall a wonderful place to stay, we will be back!!
David N.Aug 2017
Good stay, one bad night due to guest next door(adjoining condo) loud. Otherwise location amenities were great!!
Janet H.May 2017
We loved the condo and the view from the condo. Nice size condo for two people. The elevators were very efficient. The pool was lovely with plenty of seating for guests. We really loved the sandwich shop/bar by the pool. The food was outstanding!
Lee-Ann T.May 2017
Very clean and bigger than expected
Molly R.Apr 2017
We had a great stay. It was perfect location, perfect view, and a perfect size for a short couples getaway. I would definitely come back!
Michelle S.Mar 2017
Great place to stay!! No complaints at all!!
Paula R.Feb 2017
We enjoyed our stay, and the location was good. Staff was very helpful and accommodating. We would stay here again, and would recommend for a couples get away.
Scott R.Feb 2017
Enjoyed this stay
Lynn F.Jan 2017
Location was excellent. View breathtaking. Clean and comfortable, but glad we brought our own pillows as theirs were like rocks. Will definitely recommend, and will use Vacasa again.
Abbey S.Nov 2016
We had a wonderful stay at the Boardwalk. The studio was very clean, and we enjoyed our view of the beach and the golf course across the street.
The large pool is heated and well maintained. There is a lovely little beach front bar and grill on site so you once you're there, you really don't have to leave, and we didn't want to! We will definately be returning!
Scott S.Nov 2016
Nice property and great location. Unfortunately, the plumbing is off. Rusty water, little pressure, poorly draining tub. Outside of that, great potential.
Sabra S.Oct 2016
Overall, this is a nice place for a quick beach get-a-way. Everything we needed was provided. There was some noise from the adjoining condo. So, it's not the place to go if you are looking for complete peace and quiet. The heated pool and the children's play area are fantastic. I've visited this complex before and will return.
Montana D.Oct 2016
Property was perfect for a couple! ????
Brad C.Oct 2016
Awesome balcony view but if your wanting privacy it's adjoins another condo by just a door in which you can hear everything going on next door. So if your not concerned about privacy it's great
Randy B.Sep 2016
Perfect size for two people. Room was clean and well kept. Nice access to the beach. Very relaxing and thoroughly enjoyable.
Esther K.Sep 2016
Nice location right on the beach,, we really enjoyed our stay and our overall trip,, will definitely be back again
James B.Aug 2016
Everything was really good. I enjoyed my stay a lot. Only problems I had were with the thin walls, loud neighbors, and loud headboard whenever there was a bit of movement going on. The view was great and the location was very convenient. I would do it again.
Denise M.Aug 2016
Nice weekend get-a-way.
Breana H.Aug 2016
Great room for two people. Great view. I'd stay here again.

We had a wonderful honeymoon at this place and the booking was simple and reasonably priced. Staff was nice and security was great.We will be staying again and bringing our children.
John B.Jun 2016
Great place to relax.
Gordan S.Jun 2016
This unit was the perfect size for two people. The view was spectacular, and the bathroom was very spacious. We hope to stay here for our next visit to PCB.
Carl D.May 2016
we enjoyed the stay, Robin our unit manager was very accommodating and helpful when I needed her assistance. we didn't spend much time at our unit, every day going & doing things in the area, but nice to know we had a nice place to settle down every evening.
Trey M.May 2016
Very clean unit, very close to a lot of attractions. Me and my wife will be staying here again during our gateways to PCB. Thanks
Jorge J.Apr 2016
First off, the view from the balcony is REALLY nice. It is a nice room with a single king sized bed and a few chairs. Was not originally supposed to stay here, but due to some unforeseen construction in the intended room was switched here at the last minute. For the most part it met our needs.
The only 2 things to note are 1, there is no stove, just a tiny little nook with a microwave and tiny sink and 2. the bed; while it is big and very comfortable, even with minimal movement it makes a lot of noise/squeaks
Kelsey G.Mar 2016
if you want to drink alcohol on the beach,I recommend not to come during spring break
Becky S.Feb 2016
Great little condo for a short get away. Nice, clean and close to everything! The view was very nice, would definitely stay again!
Chad S.Feb 2016
Kenia C.Feb 2016
Perfect location, close to everything. Clean unit. Just bring your own coffee and filters, not even one left at the unit. Plenty of towels, toilet paper, soap........ Something else, if you want to use the GYM like they advertise, make sure to contact Property Management and ask. We were not able to get access, contact VACASA and they explain it was not part of the unit, no access at all . Only those two thigns coffee and gym, the rest /honest can't complain. Great place, unit, views , food and plenty of walking distance restaurants ,cafes , stores ..etc.
