Great Time @ Beach Haven

Stayed for 2 weeks in this lovely condo. We were lucky to have booked the condo last summer prior to the price increase and reaped the benefits of the remodel. The condo is undoubtedly beautiful in its decor and amenities. We also liked its location on the beach. The condo is not set back far from the waterfront. Convenient for going back and forth for bathroom breaks and drink refills, no need to drag the cooler to the beach. Found the beach to be very clean- no little pieces of plastic in the sand, only shells. We were within walking distance from the liq. store, 7eleven, and several bar/restaurants. The bikes came in useful for biking to Publix, farmers market, and shopping all within 1-2 miles. The kitchen was supplied with everything we needed. We made over half our meals in the condo. You will find VERY sharp knives, plenty of pots and pans, storage containers and more dishes than you can dirty in a day. We made use of the paddleboard, kayak, beach chairs, beach towels, gas grill, cooler, bikes and beach toys like noodles and wave boards. The beds are comfortable. Loved the loungers on the upper deck and the furniture on the main deck was comfortable as well, we spent a lot of time on the spacious deck watching sunsets. I liked the fact it was mostly shaded from the sun. We had a few minor issues and relayed them to the Teeming staff, who responded quickly to our requests. The only thing I can see may be a problem for some are the stairs. The unit is on the second and third floor as most in Florida are. I personally thought of it as my workout for the day. Also the unit is close to Gulf Blvd, and traffic is fast and can be heard while on the deck. Again this didn’t bother me, smokers in our group found watching the traffic entertaining. Nobody in the back bedrm stated it was an issue for sleeping. Bar/Restaurants: We enjoyed Bonefish for dinner, have to order the bang bang shrimp. Ricky T for dinner was good, but breakfast was a disappointment. Sloppy Joe’s was mediocre and overpriced, unless you sit outside and enjoy the sunset. It was raining for us so had to sit inside. Had drinks and apps. at Sea Dog Brewery and Sea Hags, both good choices. We enjoyed music and drinks at Ka Tiki Bar several nights (walking distance). We rented a 19’ deck boat at the Blind pass marina, 4hrs was $300, very cool exploring the intercostals, it’s a whole other experience from the beach.
