Great Location, Beautiful Beach
Posted Aug 27, 2015
My husband and I recently spent a few nights at Island Echos Condominium for a quick getaway. Although we live in Florida, this was our first visit to the Emerald Coast. I'll start with what we liked:
Pros: location was perfect. We don't like crowds or crowded beaches. This area was not crowded and more for just guests at the area condos. We had a 6th floor unit on the end. It was quiet. The view from our balcony was spectacular. Guests had use of umbrellas and beach chairs every day from 9 - 5 (and most days they were available before 9 and after 5.) The condo staff was very nice and helpful.
Cons: The price was steep for a 1 bed, 1 bath condo that was in serious need of updating. One of the cheap plastic balcony chairs was broken. There was a fresh leak in the bathroom over the toilet that was leaking from the unit above. One towel bar was broken, the other missing. Check-in is 4 p.m. and check-out at 10 a.m.
Again, location was perfect but not sure we would make the trip again since we live 20 minutes from the Atlantic Ocean and can easily rent a very nice, updated condo for about half the price we just paid at Island Echos.
