If you're into outdoor activities, the Gulf State Park is one and a half miles from you and offers visitors two miles of powdery sands and the largest fishing pier on the Gulf of Mexico! The Track is less than 10 miles away and offers endless family-friendly fun with go-karts, rides, and arcade!

Nice place could use some updating and the cleaning crew definitely missed some things but that is no fault of the owners.
Manager response:
Hi, Cassy! We will follow-up with housekeeping. Please don't hesitate to reach out so we can correct any oversights during your stay. Thanks!

This condo was a short walk from the beach. Loved the gift pack that had dish soap, sponge, & other needed items we didn't think to bring. Rooms very comfortable, spacious, bathrooms great. Did have trouble with one toilet not wanting to flush all the first try. Scenery was perfect for us. Saw dolphins, pirate ships, Para-sailing, ships at sea, beautiful white sandy beach, well worth the money spent.
Manager response:
Thank you for staying with us, TaraBeth. We apologize for any maintenance issues you encountered with the toilet and for any inconvenience it may have caused. Our local staff is always available to assist you with any issues during your stay if we are notified. We have forwarded your comments to the local staff so they can work with our maintenance team to address this concern. We hope to host you again.

The kitchen was well stocked, they had everything we needed
Haley B. May 2022
The Palms was a great pick for our family vacation. Only complaint is the air conditioner would not go below 71 and most the time stayed at 73 degrees.

Great value for a 3 bedroom with a huge balcony 😍
MICHELLE C. Apr 2022
Clean, very spacious condo. Excellent huge balcony. Great view. Kitchen appliances all working / updated. AC / heat worked well. Clothes washer was good, but dryer was weak.

Condo could have provided more paper goods, more regular towels and extra towels for the beach.

TV remote batteries all needed changing. (Called for assistance, spoke to manager re: one TV’s connectivity problem. No one ever came to help, nor followed up).

Master bedroom w/ balcony facing the Gulf fantastic. However, 2 back bedrooms facing the elevator/parking lot had no outdoor access/could not open windows/had slight musty, mold smell; not enough ventilation.

One of two bathrooms’ fan did not work.

Condo did not pay for/include beach chairs.
$40 day use fee for 2 chairs — separate company. Would be nice addition if condo owners stashed a couple beach chairs in closet for use.

Email & in-app correspondence were contradictory re: parking: “Free parking for 2 vehicles / $50 parking fee includes 2 vehicles.”

Water was shut off for 4 hours, 10am-2pm one weekday due to renovations. Was given 13 hours notice via text msg. Mild inconvenience.

Shared facilities:
Good: Heated indoor pool (relatively small), not heated outdoor pool (adequate).
Fair: 4 fitness machines - all worked.

Negatives / Room for improvement / suggestions:
Lacking:
- ice machine
- vending machines
- common lounge area
- complimentary coffee / tea would be nice
- in-person concierge / manager
- include beach chairs
- include more towels in general
- add more hooks in bathrooms & bedrooms
- include coffee filters

Overall very nice stay. Would stay again, however, the newer, more updated, fancier adjacent condos beckon greatly.
Manager response:
We appreciate such a thorough review, Michelle. We take feedback seriously so we can improve the guest experience. The cable provider requests that guests contact them directly for troubleshooting, so we sent their contact information to you and apologize if this was missed. The two guest bedroom windows have never had the option to open. The homeowner has had the carpets professionally cleaned and is looking to replace them. The bathroom fans were found working upon inspection. Beach chairs are not provided due to the local company that sets up daily in front of The Palms. This complex has a two car maximum per reservation, and it's $25/per pass. We sincerely apologize for the last minute notification of the water shut-off; we made our guests aware as soon as the HOA advised us. Hopefully we can host you again for a more seamless experience. Thank you!

Views from balcony. Easy access to nearby restaurants.
Susan M. May 2021
We always like the Palms. The master bed was nice and soft. Big TVs in each room.
Kim M. May 2021
We loved our stay at The Palms! The view was amazing and our baby loved the pools. The construction wasn’t an issue, it wasn’t too loud or bothered us at all. We can’t wait to visit again! Wonderful place and close to everything!
Dan F. Mar 2021
This was a great location with an amazing view. It felt like we were in the middle of everything, but we didn't feel overwhelmed by the hustle and bustle of a typical spring break destination.
Chris M. Mar 2021
older condo, but great location, balcony space and views. Would have rated it higher if it was not for the age and the construction going on when we were there (some sort of banging started at 7am each morning)
Roy and Janet C. Feb 2021
Great unit and great owner with which to deal. Any and all issues that arose were promptly dealt with by either the owner or on site supervisors at the Palms. We will choose to stay in Palms unit 803 in the future!
Reid B. Aug 2020
Easy access, great restaurants close by
Lindsay R. Jul 2020
Had a great time in this condo. Everything was as expected.
Gregory F. Jun 2020
The rental is exactly as described. Very clean and roomy. Easy access to the beach. Beach was not as crowded as the neighboring properties. Had a wonderful time!!
Emily E. May 2020
Great place! Management was wonderful.
Molly R. Jun 2019
The property and location were nice. The garbage disposal wasn’t working when we got to the condo. I wish there had been more products in the kitchen. We didn’t even have filters for the coffee maker or dish soap. One elevator broke down twice during our stay. The steps weren’t a viable option from the 8th floor.
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.
