Great place!!    Oct 05, 2018

We absolutely loved this condo.  Very well furnished and fell in love with the balcony!   Wow the views were breathtaking from the oversized balcony!  Although it was red tide at the time of our stay and we couldn't enjoy the beach we still enjoyed the condo!!!

Gibson Beach Rentals reservation team 's reply:

We sure are sorry about the red tide, it sure wasn't what we had in mind either. But we are so happy to hear how much y'all loved the condo! We appreciate your review & hope to have you return again to perfect, fabulous tides. Be sure to mention our repeat guest discount.

Tides 1509 Condo --- Beautiful!    Apr 23, 2017

My husband and I stayed in Tides 1509 during the third week of April.  We loved the condo.  It was exactly as depicted in the pictures.  I will definitely consider staying here again!  

Gibson Beach Rentals reservation team 's reply:

And we'd love to have you return Stacey! Hearing how much you enjoyed your visit is music to our ears.

Tides 1509 Review    Apr 08, 2017

Wonderful experience, wish we were able to have the early check in as we requested but the stay was still one of our best vacations

Gibson Beach Rentals reservation team 's reply:

So do we Beth! We try really hard to get all of our guests in just as soon as possible. If only cleaning wouldn't take so long! We are really happy to hear that you enjoyed your time here and we hope to have you join us again soon.

Beautiful condo    Mar 25, 2017

We have rented Tides 1509 several times and is it one of our favorites!  From the tall ceilings to large balcony to the great interior design, it never disappoints.

Gibson Beach Rentals reservation team 's reply:

Sounds like you've found a 'home away from home'! What a treat to visit such a wonderful spot, year after year. Thanks for coming back, we hope to see you again real soon!
