The view from this condo is spectacular. The condo was very well maintained and very clean. It is in a great location to access several great restaurants.

The location can’t be beat - on the beach and walking distance to shops and restaurants. The condo was generally spacious enough for 6 adults, but maybe not for a group that likes to cook (the kitchen is a tight squeeze, not well-equipped, and the outlets tripped several times). The condo is in need of some TLC. The pantry doors do not open smoothly or easily. We were not able to adjust the fan speed in any of the rooms. The couch bed was too uncomfortable to use and the couch itself is so sunken (angled downward to the back) that no one could sit comfortably. Mattresses could also stand to be updated. There was a blender we were excited to use but it was broken. One of the refrigerator shelves collapsed during our stay and the ice maker couldn’t keep up with regular use (for beverages, not filling coolers). The washer and dryer are too small for a full load of towels and the lint trap in the dryer falls out if it’s not placed just so in the dryer. The listing indicates that there is a reserved, covered parking space but that was not the case. There is only one elevator so it is slow going down and coming up. The elevator waiting area is unbearably hot (dryer vents blow into this area and AC units are housed there).
Manager response:

It was right on the beach, walking distance to local attractions. Clean, well maintained
Kaye R. Jun 2022
The view was great but the condo needs work. Updating and repairs. The dishwasher fell out when you opened door. Needs new furniture and painting. Will not stay in this unit again.
Manager response:
Kaye, thank you for sharing your experience, we are so pleased you enjoyed our home's view! That said, we apologize for the issues that detracted from your stay. We have shared your comments with the local manager who assured us that the dishwasher has been remounted, the home has been deep-cleaned and a new sofa has been installed. We hope that you will give us a chance to host you again and better impress you in the future.

Management company was excellent. Property was very clean and we were contacted several times checking our satisfaction and making sure we had up to date contact info for any issues which luckily we never had to use. The location is excellent and the condo building is very clean and well kept. The heated pool and bathroom right at the beach was really nice and we enjoyed it very much.
Our 3 star review is because this is falsely advertised as sleeping 7. There is a fold out couch that other reviewers had commented about that we thought surely had been replaced after 2 years of negative reviews. It was not replaced and is 100 percent not sleepable! We’ve all slept on uncomfortable fold out couches and you just tough it out. No biggie. This foldout in NOT usable… even for kids. The frame is so bent that you’d fear your kids rolling off and getting hurt… no matter what direction you laid them to sleep. It literally is DANGEROUS! It took 2 of us to fold it back up because the frame is so bent it was hitting the floor! We ended up having to double up in the other beds which made our vacation FAR less enjoyable. If you can’t double up in beds or don’t want to on your vacation, don’t rent this unit!!
Again Vacasa Mgmt company was EXCELLENT! But if the owners won’t replace the couch then this should NOT be advertised as sleeps 7.
Manager response:
Nora, thank you for your review. We are happy to hear you enjoyed our home's location. We apologize for any discomfort your party experienced due to the sofa bed. We truly appreciate you bringing this concern to our attention. This home accommodates up to seven guests and the homeowner replaced the couch with a brand-new one for better comfort. We value your communication, and hope we have another opportunity to better impress you in the future!

Great stay! Clean! Views are amazing !!
ThuHoang N. Sep 2021
Great Location, but furniture needs to be updated. Toilets are very small. I have very tall and big family members. Ant fest station when food is left on the counter or falls to the floor.
Manager response:
Hi ThuHoang, Thank you for giving us the opportunity to hear your feedback about your stay! We appreciate you bringing the ants to our attention. Rest assured that we will follow up with the appropriate parties regarding your feedback. We're looking forward to hosting you again for another enjoyable stay!
Amberly R. Aug 2021
The view was gorgeous, you could see sand and ocean for miles. The condo could have been more updated. The sliding glass door curtain was torn, the beds were uncomfortable, and the provided beach chairs were either broken or let rust stains on your arms/hands. However it was not a bad stay, we had fun,.stores were close by, and there were some great restaurants (Shrimp Basket and Sunliner Diner were our favs)
Amanda D. Aug 2021
This condo was fantastic!! It had everything we needed and more !!!
Sharon M. Jul 2021
Cute apartment, nicely decorated and furnished with an absolutely fabulous view of both gulf and bay. Side unit so full view of the gulf, lovely beach. Very clean. Would rent this again.
Donna J. Jul 2021
The room was very comfy. No coffee cups. The beach being right at our footsteps was wonderful. No covered parking. It was difficult operating both TVs. But we had a great time.
Tammra L. Aug 2020
It was clean. All the mattresses need to be replaced. The sofa bed was not sleepable. The fan in livingroom needs to be cleaned. It had a lot of black dirt/mold on it. The convenience on th beach was very nice.

Melissa W. Jul 2020
My family of 7 had a great trip and our condo was awesome! We loved being right in the beach and looking out our balcony at the ocean. My 6 year old also enjoyed the condo pool. We had enough room for 7 of us, although the sofa sleeper wasn’t very comfortable. Other than that, we had no complaints at all. We definitely would stay here again.
Lesley W. Jun 2020
My entire family loved staying at Tropic Isle. The beach access was amazing, literally out your back door. The location was perfect for the places we wanted to shop and eat at. We would definitely visit again. The only thing that I found disappointing was there was no fitness facility as advertised. Other than that we very much enjoyed our time
Stephanie S. Jun 2020
Such a great view!! Had a nice vacation. The place was right on the beach and had a lot of room for all 5 of us.

Cindy M. May 2019
Amazing service. The condo we booked a/c unit was broken upon arrival and they moved us to a different condo very quickly. Staff at Kaiser realty were very nice
Manager response:
We're very sorry for the inconvenience during your stay. This issue occurred under a previous management company. Our local teams are working with that company to learn from feedback and fix any issues. We just started managing this unit and would love for you to try staying with Vacasa in the future to experience our world class service.
Charles S. Apr 2019
The bathrooms smelled of urine and I had to clean with bleach. Dishes in the cabinet were dirty, so had to run a load before we could use any dishes.
