Description from owner


Come and enjoy this amazing direct view of the glimmering Gulf of Mexico from your private townhouse. The view is priceless. Sand Pebbles has one of the best views on 98 from two decks, living room, and master bedroom. Being in the unit is so different from being in a condo because it is being in a home and part of the neighborhood.

Staying in the unit provides the same view as the 3 million dollar home close by. Just out the door and three steps down make the ease of walking your pet just so convenient day or night. Great wide sidewalk directly in front of Sand Pebbles.

Location, Location Sand Pebbles is in a very walkable area.

Go for an ice cream, lunch, or dinner next door at Kenny D's or across the street for dinner at Capt Dave's Restaurant.

The townhome has a covered front porch down stairs with a beautiful view for that first cup of coffee. Upstairs off from the master bedroom is a MUST see view of the gulf fun for people watching and enjoy the sunrise or sunset. Both decks have bar high chairs.

Make Sand Pebbles your hideaway.

Response from the owner Thank you for the Great Review!!! I look forward to having you back next year!!! I Adore my little “Little By the Sea”, and take great pride in having The Top Excellence award for 2 years in a row.. Thank you for your input, all the doors have been shaved down to prevent sticking, and the other few things you politely brought to my attention have been addressed as well. I appreciate feedback as I try my hardest to make my guest as comfortable as possible, and hopefully have you return for future visits. Thank you, Darlene

Response from the owner This review made me sad, because every thing mentioned in the review, within my ability was addressed immediatly within hours of the complaint. To address the issues listed I will say : The wifi went out due to a storm but was back on within 2 hours. The refrigerator, they admitted was left open due to a case of beer keeping the door ajar over night. Doors not shutting all the way just comes with a 40 year old building on the beach ( sand and salt ). Stains on everything, not sure what she was speaking about. Ants? never have seen any, but I imagine there may be a few if there is food and sticky left on the counters. Based on the condition of the unit when they checked out, were not the cleanest people. As far as the beds are concerned , must have read an old description. The beds in the 2nd bedroom are pretty new, maybe 6 months old. 2 trundle beds which offer sleep for 4, rather than 2 with the old queen size bed.
