Excellent beach view from your house or condo located directly on the Gulf of Mexico. There are no other condos or houses between your balcony/deck and the beach. In the majority of properties your view will be panoramic, however at a few condos and houses the adjacent properties are situated closer to the beach on one or both sides, which makes your gulf view still direct but not panoramic. The walking distance to the water's edge varies by property.
No view of the beach from your condo or house located on the Gulf of Mexico due to the position of the condo building. Your advantage is the location on the beach side of the street.
Your house or condo building is located directly on one of the bays, lagoons or bayous on the island. Views of the backwaters will be excellent from houses. Water views from condos will be excellent, good, angled, partial or no view depending on how the buildings are positioned on the backwaters. In most cases you will have easy beach access nearby.
Search for properties with either a king- or queen-size bed in each bedroom (rather than twin beds). These make ideal accommodations for couples.
