Jenny C. from Poplar Bluff, MO US recommends this vacation rental.

The complex was wonderful, lots of space, beautiful beachside pool (Too cold to swim in when we were there) beautifully maintained grounds. We did have problems with one of the elevators "Sticking" and got stuck for about 10 minutes on it but the company came out and worked on it very quickly, just a bit scary. The heated pool was down for repair work so that was a bit of a bummer but not a deal breaker. The condo itself was beautiful, well stocked, very clean and comfortable. The ice maker in the fridge was super slow but we just bought ice at Tom Thumb. The beach area was amazing, views from the condo were amazing. Loved this quiet location enough to return again and again. We are senior citizens and being in a quiet location is what we need. The management company (Jasmin) was wonderful, she quickly answered any questions and was so very helpful.

A guest from Findlay, OH US recommends this vacation rental.

As a larger family its difficult to find a clean affordable safe place to take a vacation! Our stay here provided everything we were looking for and was close enough to the water you could hear the waves crashing at night. Stores and shops of all types were conveniently located nearby yet the location of our rental made it feel like we were the only people there! Neighbors were quiet and respectful...and staff we interacted with were pleasant and helpful as well. We could even door dash dinner if we felt like staying in and the guards would call and make sure we were expecting someone before letting them on the property. I give our stay ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

A guest recommends this vacation rental.

Property was at the very end of beach so fairly quiet from a large complex perspective. Staff was excellent from gate guards to maintenance to management company. The condo was very clean and perfect location for the family with plenty of room with excellent views. It is more quiet from an activity perspective for older kids but we had a great time.

Unit 468 was an amazing place to stay. It was very clean. This unit had an amazing view of the emerald shore. This property has been around for quite sometime, but everyone who visits always return. The common areas were clean too.

The condo was clean with everything you need for a great stay. The place was better than the pictures! 6th floor overlooking the beach and pool. This place is the last condo on the beach, so you have access to completely unpopulated beach right next door.

Matthew P. from MCHNERY, IL US recommends this vacation rental.

It was very nice inside and easy to get into. I liked that it was kind at the end of the condos on the beach. The sliding door to the balcony needed some grease and the elevators were slow but that is minor. We will definitely consider this property when we come back.

A guest from DuQuion, IL United States recommends this vacation rental.

Our family stayed the week of the fourth of July - It was unbelievable. From coffee on the balcony and watching dolphins play in the mornings to crab hunting at night - the Condo couldn't have been better located. Just steps to the beach. Very clean and comfortable. The owners think of the extras - board games, a deck of cards, books to read - it was wonderful.

We loved the location of the condo. Very quiet, not crowded, beautiful view of sunset every night due to being last condo on island.
Air conditioning was not working efficiently, but was taken care of the next day. Feel beach umbrella and chairs should be provided everyday. Could also provide more than 1 kitchen dish cloth and dish towel.

The decor is nice, the beds were comfortable, the views were amazing. The keypad was nice to have but we wished we had known that it wouldn't activate until the 4:00pm check in time.

It was the perfect layout for our family of 4. We plan to come back!

A guest from Kennesaw, GA United States recommends this vacation rental.

We are a family of six, four small children and two adults. We fit comfortably with a pack and play and also brought a blow up mattress. We had an excellent view of the water one of the best in the El Matador, we recommend this unit to other families. It is very family friendly and quiet. We never heard any of our neighbors, no loud music, no slamming doors or running up and down the hallways. The unit was well stocked with updated furniture and decor.
