Clean, but in need of repairs
Left on 10/30/2012 for a stay in September 2012 | Neil S.
Our stay was pleasant - it was easy enough to check-in and get settled, despite the lack of on-site management 24/7. The rental was mostly clean, save for the roaches in the bathtub (eww). I'm guessing no one had been in the condo since the last renters (and maid) several weeks before. But, several doors, drapes, etc., were broken and in need of repair. From my understanding speaking with people at the resort, the previous owners lost the property; and, it is currently being managed by a temporary agency. That's fine, but be aware of it up-front. This property is not what it once was.
The pool was probably the best part of the resort. We were there shortly after Hurricane Isaac, and there was hardly anyone there at the resort or on Perdido Key. And, that made it very peaceful. The neighbors were friendly (some folks apparently live in the condos, in addition to renters). Mosquitos are plentiful, and a neighbor killed a cottonmouth snake outside the condo one evening, so be aware of your surroundings.
All in all, it was a good stay - I feel like the stay should have been discounted, as it obviously wasn't summer season anymore. But, we paid what we paid. For the size of the condo and amenities, it was a good value. Read more

Thanks for the feedback, however it is a bit inaccurate. Not sure who this guest spoke to, but it was not someone affiliated with the resort. The property is not being managed by a temporary agency nor was it "lost" by the previous owners. PKRM has been the Vacation Rental Company since 2005 for the Purple Parrot Resort. The resort is made up of some condo owners that live on-site, some that are vacation homes and most of which are available for vacation rentals all of the condos are privately owned. Management is onsite on weekdays maintaining the property in addition to being onsite on the weekends for check-in's. We also have a maintenance man who lives onsite in case of after-hours emergencies. None of the items mentioned as broken were reported to our office nor were they found upon departure in the condo. Please send an email indicating where the repairs were needed. The owner of this condo stayed for a month following this guest. She upgraded the master bedroom to a king-size bed and had all of the flooring on the first level replaced to keep it in good condition. The only difference between years prior and 2012 is that we did not have the Bar and Grill open this year, however several of our guests complimented the relaxing atmosphere out by the pool without the live music. Additionally, we have added thatch-roofed cabanas all around the pool deck, a volleyball court, large LED sign on the frontage and improved the landscaping within the past 2 years. Concerning the rate paid, the rates are tiered amongst 7 different seasons. The time of year in which this guest stayed was significantly discounted from peak summer rates. Unfortunately, their stay was just after we experienced a bout of inclement weather so perhaps the lack of sunny days at the beach influenced the stay in an unfavorable way. This particular condo is in good condition, very popular and has many repeat guests each year. JD Hallam PKRM Rental Manager

We recently stayed in this unit for a week. We really enjoyed our stay. The property is easily accessible. We loved the pool area. There were two negatives in this unit. The upstairs bath has mold growth all over the ceiling and the sinks were backing up.. Had we contacted maintenance they would have corrected the sinks.. Overall, wonderful unit!

A home away from home
Left on 01/31/2012 for a stay in December 2011 | Rodriguez
Our check in to "Return to Me" cottage was very simple. The office staff made sure to notify us that they would be leaving early for a meeting on the day of our check-in and offered us options of how we would like to check-in.
The cottage was clean, with all of the essential kitchen tools. It was great for fixing Christmas dinner.
The heated indoor pool and fitness room were clean and we greatly enjoyed using them.
We loved the location so convenient to the Naval aviation Museum and many other attractions. Read more

Home away From Home
Left on 08/31/2011 for a stay in August 2011 | PK
Staying at the Purple Parrot in Perdido Key was relaxing and pleasant. We had all the comforts of home (even the slow drainging tub). The convenience of having us altogether without being in each other's way kept us sane. Eating meals together in a home setting was a savings.

Our stay at "Return To Me" was one of the best times we have ever had. The cottage was very clean and had all the ammenities that we needed to enjoy our stay. The decore was beautiful and was not just the typical "beachy" feel that you get in other places. The purple parrot was cozy and upbeat. We would stay here again and again and recommend it for everyone.

This was by far the most relaxing vacation we have had in a very long time. When we've used vacation condos, we've vacationed primarily on the West coast and in the Lake Tahoe area. Return to Me boasts the nicest accomodations (followed very closely by our own condo in Lake Tahoe). Everything is right on the property but the beach is just minutes away. We made use of the bicycles available in the management office and rode up and down the beach. The beach nearby is the whitest, cleanest beach we've ever been on. Clancy is a fountain of information and extremely courteous. We highly recommend everything about this unit. A previous reviewer mentioned the noise from the poolside bar. They are right. If you are not the partying kind, make sure you pick a unit that is not adjacent to the pool. Return to me was the perfect choice for us.
Relaxing Vacation at "Return to Me"
Left on 04/28/2011 for a stay in April 2011 | Spilk
We came to the area to vacation and house hunt for our move in June. We stayed here for 6 days in april. It was a 2 bdr with one queen, 2 twin beds and a pull out couch bed which we didn't use. It was so nice to have a place that felt like you were right at home and whatever you needed was right there. It is located in the back which is next to the indoor pool and office. It is not right next to the outdoor pool outside which I believe is a good thing since it gets pretty loud over there in the evening. The home is very nicely decorated. Staff were very nice and accommodating since we had a late arrival and early departure. You see the security out walking around which was nice to know they were watching over us. Thank you for making our vacation comfortable and wonderful. I would highly recommend "Return to Me" it has everything you need plus more. The owners have thought of everything you would possibly need. You will love Purple Parrot Village Resort. It is minutes from many beaches.
Relaxing and quiet rental

Had the place almost to ourselves; matter of fact we saw more raccoons than other condo occupants. We did see other vehicles so we knew there were people around. We enjoyed it that way though for this time of year and were able to maximize our visit with our son, who lives several miles away. The kitchen in the unit was one of the best stocked with utensils that we have seen in our stays at many other rentals and time-shares. Read more
Response from Perdido Key Resort Management - 03/31/2011
Thank you for pointing that out. The owners of this condo hope to stock the kitchen so that you could prepare anything you wanted while on vacation in their home. I am glad you enjoyed your stay and we hope to have you back again soon! Kindest Regards, JD Hallam PKRM Rental Manager

We so enjoyed our stay with this resort. Even before we left home or made a reservation, JD answered all of our questions with confidence and helped us make our final decision without pressure of any kind. The property we stayed at was very clean, which is a must for us. I even tested places for cleanliness that a lot would not notice. It was a spacious property as well. We had one minor issue with a device in the home the day before Thanksgiving and it was dealt with promptly and kindly. We were 1/2 a mile from the beach and spent three glorious days there! Plenty of room for our family here and great memories were made! Thanks JD and company! We'll be back!!! We highly recommend this resort especially for first timers! You won't regret it. Our only complaint was we had to leave! If you want to be closer to the live music, you may want to choose a property closer to the pool but if quiet is your choice, this is a great place for you. The owners of this property have thought of every little detail and most anything you need to cook a big meal is provided! Thanks Purple Parrot for a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday! Read more

Thanks so much for the thorough feedback! It was a pleasuring having you stay with us and I am looking forward to seeing you again soon! This condo is perfect for a quiet vacation in which you are still close enough that a short walk brings you to the live music and outdoor pool. I really appreciate the honest feedback.

My husband and I had a fun time with friends at 45C. The house was so clean and well equipped. We appreciated all the towels, blankets, and the well equiped kitchen. There were even two umbrellas inside the door if needed. I don't know if all you properties are like this , but it sure was nice. We'll be back. Ps Johnson Beach was such and added bonus.

Thanks for taking the time to provide us with feedback. I appreciate you mentioning the promptness of the after-hours folks.

This unit is top of the line. You can tell that the owners take pride in their property. It has a lot of personal touches to make you feel welcome without making you feel like you're staying in someone elses house! My family rented 5 separate condos (for a Pensacola wedding) in the same location and this one was by far the nicest of the five.

Fabulous environment to spend Christmas even with boys who believe in Santa Clause! Perdido Key itself is a beautiful beach, Purple Parrot quiet, and relaxing. "Return to Me" felt inviting with character exuding in each room and cupboard. Saving money on entrance to the beach as well as savings on groceries helped our family immensley.
We were sad to leave... especially to go back to the Michigan cold.

Wonderful stay in Perdido Key. We were there to visit with my son stationed at NAS Pensacola. Convenient to the base and very relaxing and beautiful place to stay.

The Purple Parrot Resort is a great place to stay--nice pool (both indoor and out), jacuzzi, and small but nice workout facilities. It's very close to both public beaches and Johnson's Beach (part of the National Park).
I've stayed in one of the other Purple Parrot houses w/the exact same floor plan before and it was excellent--pristine. This one, however, seemed a little more "used"--the carpet needed cleaning in the bedrooms, and the master bath looked as if it hadn't been scrubbed at all since the last occupant. There were also bugs in the master bath. This is the only place I saw them, and the rest of the house was clean and nice. The owners provided some really wonderful extras--DVDs to watch, a free pass for Johnson's Beach, etc. Overall: a nice place, good value for the money, but could use a little TLC in the bedrooms of this particular house.

We really enjoyed our stay in "Return to Me" We have been to the Purple Parrot before, but this was our first time in this unit. Our sons loved having their own room and were excited to find that the owners had even thought to provide markers and play-doh! It's decorations were lovely and we found most everything we needed in the unit. We will definitely stay here again.

This home was so comfortable and tastefully decorated. The attention to details made our stay easy and enjoyable. The location is very convenient to the beach and the staff at Purple Parrot was both friendly and helpful. We enjoyed the on-site Tiki Bar and pool, as well as a very nice workout room. We plan to return to Purple Parrot and ?Return to Me? in the future.

We stayed at this condo while attending our daughter's graduation from PCC. While it was a little bit of a drive to the school, it was well worth it. The distance gave us a bit of an isolated feel, which is what we were needing. There are grocery stores nearby, and most of the time our family chose to just stay in and eat at the condo which gave us more time together. It was very peaceful and comfortable, with the beach being an easy walk away. Everything we needed was there, the owners have done a wonderful job decorating and making sure we had what we needed. We hope to return some day!

My husband and I brought our children here for our family vacation. The unit itself was wonderful for families, roomy with everything we needed for convenience and comfort. The whole family enjoyed the swimming pool and hot tub. Management was awesome, going out of his way on Christmas day to accommodate us. The Johnson's beach pass was especially appreciated, we went to that beach almost every day of our vacation. We would return in a heartbeat. Thanks for a wonderful stay!

This was a perfect accomadation for our family of four. With two rooms upstairs, a living and dining room and kitchen, it was nice to have plenty of space. The on-site pool was a favorite for the kids. The beach was nearby by car, but had alot of Jelly Fish and was sort of rough -- there had been alot of storms. The property was perfect, and I would highly recommend it.
