Robert L W. Jan 2022
Nice room, everything was as described, perfect for 2 people. Only reason I rated it as a 4 instead of a 5 was the bed was comfortable but you kind of sunk into it which made rolling over and getting out of it a little difficult and the sheets didn't stay on. The other reason was the floor had been swept but it evidentially hadn't been scrubbed in awhile and there were long black hairs stuck to the shower wall when we arrived. Otherwise everything was great and we really enjoyed our stay. We would definitely recommend this apartment and would definitely stay again!
Manager response:
Hi, Robert! We apologize you didn't find the home pristine for your stay. We will discuss the oversights with housekeeping. Additionally, the homeowner has been made aware of your concerns with the bed and will be visiting the home to address this issue. Thank you!

The size for my husband and I to have a quick couples getaway was perfect. We loved the somewhat secluded area of the condo and the BEST part was the restaurant on the first floor, Sassy Bass (the food and drinks were fantastic).

My only con about staying in this particular room was the bed. We both suffered from tired eyes and aching bodies because the bed and mattress were very uncomfortable. This condo is simply too wonderful to have such a simple downfall as an uncomfortable sleeping arrangement.

Do everyone a favor and splurge a little on the bed/mattress and that would make this stay 12/10, PERFECT.
Manager response:
Hi, Corie! It is a pleasure to hear you enjoyed the area of the condo. However, we sincerely apologize for any discomfort you experienced with the bed during your stay. We are so happy to report that the bed has since been updated to accommodate our guest's comfort needs. Thank you for staying with us; we hope to see you again soon!

It was perfect for two people. All the appliances were up to date. The view to the beach was amazing! We will definitely plan to come back!
Sarah M. Aug 2021
The condo was amazing. Clean and well stocked. The only thing I would recommend is getting a new mattress. It was very worn and is not comfortable for sleeping at all. The sassy bass was a nice restaurant to eat and drink at as well.
Michelle H. Jul 2021
The condo was very nice. It was small but nice. It was far out from the main strip. We loved our stay. We will be back for sure.
Stephen L. May 2021
Our unit had a fantastic view. It was clean... Perfect for the two of us... However very little closet space, ran out of hand towels and wash cloths and could not find an exchange system in place like we did the last time we were here.
Timothy W. Sep 2020
Great place for a couple's getaway as long as you don't need much space. Nice ocean views from multiple windows, which was novel to us. Balcony is juuust big enough for two chairs... Our only criticism is the place has a bit of a funky smell to it that is hard to describe: a little musty, a little sharp. We actually bought a plug-in air freshener to knock the edge off... Other than that, we really enjoyed our stay!
Jordan T. Aug 2020
We thought our studio condo was very cute and a great location, but on the third day we spotted a giant cockroach by the stove. We weren’t cooking during our stay and didn’t have a lot of food in the condo overall, so it was just unsettling to see. Especially since it was a studio condo and close quarters. We thought the condo was safe and in a great location. Also a great view of the ocean. Overall, we liked the condo.. the bug just threw us off and was unsettling.
Manager response:
Hi, Jordan! We are so glad you enjoyed the condo and apologize if the Palmetto bug surprised you. The condos are sprayed every month for these bugs, and keeping all doors closed helps keep them out. Thank you!
Matthew M. Aug 2020
We had bay view out the back window, and full gulf view out the front. It's not a huge place, but was really clean and perfect for the two of us. We had one little foible, but I won't even bother to say what it was because we called management and they fixed it FAST. Awesome service.
Amanda A. Aug 2020
This is perfect for a weekend getaway. Not very large, but is perfect for 2 people! Nice location and close to shops and restaurants, Please check out the Sassy Bass Grill located at the complex, they have excellent food and drinks. Beach was nice!
Perry T. Jul 2020
Fairly clean changed the sheets when arrived bc they seemed dirty, but that could have been stains.
Cindy V. Jul 2020

Peaceful setting, no hassle entry, nice room
Karen W. Jun 2020
First of all, let me say that my husband and I truely enjoyed our stay in this unit. It was cozy (just as shown in the pictures) but everything that we needed to make our stay great. It did get warm during the day. I guess the AC couldnt keep up with rising temperature; but the fan definately helped in that area. We enjoyed the area for beaching, biking state parks, and just plain 'taking in the sites'.
Sharlene L. Jun 2020
This studio condo was perfect for my husband and myself. We enjoyed our stay and will definitely be back.
Stanton W. May 2020
Short walk to the beach/pool. The restaurant on the ground floor was great and so convenient! The room was clean and perfect for 2 people! We enjoyed our stay!

Barbara H. Oct 2019

Brenda S. Oct 2019
Very clean, great studio! Just enough room for the two of us.
Don B. Sep 2019
My first experience in Gulf exceeded my expectations. Will definitely be back
Amber W. Jul 2019
This studio condo had everything we needed. It had the best view and my husband and I had the time of our lives. We can’t wait to return and will definitely choose 5801 again.
Nicole A. Jul 2019
My husband and I loved this little condo, it's the perfect size for 2 people. It's also one of the few condos in the building that actually face the ocean. The others face the pool area. We enjoyed sassy bass and we also spent alot of time in the pools. We loved that it was about 20 minutes from the tourist area and not right in the middle of everything. There is a little grocery store right down the road and there are also food trucks about a mile away. There is also outdoor games, a restuarant with indoor games, and live music near the food trucks. We will definitely be back with our son.
Eldred B. Jul 2019
Perfect rental. Everything was just as described. Just big enough for my wife and our two boys. Very clean and nicely situated on the top floor corner of the building. Great view!
Allen H. Jun 2019
We had a fantastic time and everone on staff treated us great. We were here 10 yrs ago and had a great time then as well.
Hanna B. Jun 2019
It was the perfect space for a mother daughter trip! Great views from the balcony and windows. Very friendly beach chair service. The only downfall was the uncomfortable sofa bed.
Candice J. Mar 2019
Everything about this condo and the resort was perfect! We loved the view, beach, indoor pool was awesome, the unit was furnished nicely, the halls smelled good, the property was well maintained, the location was relaxing! But the mattress was awful! It was the worst mattress I ever slept on.
Erin K. Mar 2019
The condo was perfect for my daughter and I to have a mini vacation! The amenities were great. We had no real reason to leave the premises.
Dr. Mary D. Aug 2018
I have been staying in this unit for years. The new flooring and furnishings were perfect. Love the new deck chairs.
