Beautiful condo, excellent location. We spent 5 wonderful days in Perdido Dream. The condo is beautifully decorated and well appointed with everything you may need. The 5th floor location is conveniently located near the elevator and has an excellent view of the beach, especially during sunrise and sunset. Sheila is so accommodating and an excellent host ready to answer any questions. It was home away from home, we look forward to our next visit. Thank you for sharing your condo with us!

The name says it all.... "Perdido Dream!" Enjoy every second! First, Sheila was an incredible host who displayed complete professionalism and integrity from the very first response to the closing remarks. Second, the process to acquire such a beautiful paradise is exceptionally user-friendly along with so many amenities it is unbelievable. My wife and I were so astounded by the friendly atmosphere and privacy it made us feel we were on our honeymoon all alone on a deserted island with only ourselves and a heaven-like ambiance. There are so many diverse locations and opportunities that we found online, but I promise you if you go ahead and choose "Perdido Dream," your search will be a lot less work and time, so you can focus on packing up to get here! You do not need to pack very much to enjoy Perdido Dream because what you have in your kitchen, Shiela has available in this one.
We cooked a lot while we were here and the appliances, utensils, and serving dishes are all within reach for easy convenience. Also, you will be in another universe when you wake up in the most comfortable beds and look out into the deep-vibrant colors of the water through the sliding glass doors in both the master bedroom, as well as the living room while you enjoy your coffee. One cool evening, we even had a romantic dinner out on the lanai while watching the sunset listening to sweet music to cap off another phenomenal evening. After you stay here once, you will not want to waste your time looking anywhere else. Once you have had the best, accept no substitutes!

From the fabulously helpful and generous owners to the most immaculate and beautifully decorated condo we’ve ever booked, this truly is a dream! Nothing beats drinking your morning coffee on the balcony and enjoying dolphins swimming by below, just to say, “We’re here for you!” Sheila and Rodger really have thought of everything you need and have chosen such high-quality pieces, from the Keurig machine and beautiful furniture to the lovely knick-knacks and framed photos adorning the walls to the heavenly king bed and mattress! Even all the towels and washcloths were white, clean and in perfect condition, which is usually unheard of in a rental! We could not have been more pleased and can’t wait to return. Thanks so much, Sheila and Rodger, for your generous and loving hospitality. Hugs ~

Wonderful Vacation Spot! Our family stayed at Perdido Dream the week of August 19th. We can honestly say that we had one of the best vacations of our lives. The condo was decorated beautifully, just as the pictures showed. The sand was so clean it squeaked. The water was perfectly warm. On top of all of that we met some wonderful people which really made the vacation that much better. We had zero issues at all and could not have been happier with the unit, location or well, anything. The view was incredible each morning as we woke and brought the kids out to watch the dolphins. We are already planning our trip down for next year! Thank you, it was amazing!
This is the best place to stay. Had a girls trip and stayed in this lovely first class Condo!! I could not imagine staying anywhere else in this area. I look forward returning!!!
Perdido Dream. We loved our stay at Perdido Dream! The condo was beautiful and right on the beach. When we first walked in the view was fantastic! It was decorated very nicely and was comfortable for our family of 6. The beds were really comfortable, too. We were there on spring break. I was worried that it would be super busy and crowded, but it wasn't! The pool was never busy. We never had to wait for the elevator and the beach was never crowded. We loved the location!! Sheila was wonderful to work with and even let us stay a few hours longer due to the fact that no one was checking in that day! We will definitely be booking this condo again!!
I never need my blood pressure medicine while I'm here.
If you're looking for a perfect get away by the beach.... THIS IS THE PLACE! The condo is extremely clean with warm and classy decorative touches. What we loved best about this quaint condo was the short walk to the beach as well as the convenience of having near by restaurants and grocery stores. We plan on returning this spring and can't wait!
November - December 2016
My stay at Perdido Dream was nothing short of amazing! The condos location is perfect. It's quiet with plenty of privacy but also have plenty of options for great food and shopping near by (Jellyfish Bar and Tanger Outlets were my favorite). The beach is beautiful but the view from the condo is even better. I was lucky enough to get to see the Blue Angels fly by one day. Mrs. Sheila is so accommodating and goes out of her way to ensure your stay is everything you expected. I hope to get the opportunity to stay here again in the future. Highly recommend!
Nick & Heidi
If I could rate the "Dream" condo OVER 5 stars, I would!! We couldn't have asked for a better place to relax on our honeymoon. Condo is spotless, comfortable, inviting and so much more. We've already booked a return trip with Sheila and can't wait to go back!! Can't say enough good things about her. Communication with the owner was as perfect as the rental. Location is close enough to anything and everything and far enough away to feel secluded. Waking up to breakfast on the patio while watching the dolphins, followed by a day on the beach while soaking in the sun and throwing out a line, then dinner back on the patio - start to finish a perfect day. Thanks for sharing Perdido Dream with us. We did our very best to leave it as impeccable as we found it. Cheers!!
What a view! Decor is gorgeous and completely updated! 5 Star Luxury in Perdido Key!
We just returned from a wonderful week at Ocean Breeze West, "Perdido Dream." This beautifully decorated condo sits right on the beach and has everything you need. We were so happy the beach chairs and the umbrella were included, too! If you need anything, there are a few shops, restaurants and grocery stores nearby. This area is beautiful and seemed more private, too. We enjoyed watching the waves crash, laying in the sun, shelling, walking the beach and making memories with family. Thank you so much to the Chavis' for your beautiful place. It was so relaxing and much needed!
Spent a week with friends at this very comfortable and beautifully decorated condo - very relaxing decor. The owners are awesome to work with, complex is on the beach, shopping and restaurants are nearby. I will definitely schedule trips in the future to Perdido Dream.
Just returned from a week in paradise. Perdido Dream is a beautifully decorated condo right on the beach. I was on vacation with 5 fun loving over 50 women. The whole vacation was wonderful - the location, the condo, the restaurants and shopping and I must add the owners are absolutely wonderful. They aim for top grade A+ service for their visitors and I definitely give them an A+!!!!! I see more beach trips in my future at no other place but Perdido Dream!!!!!
Excellent Beach Vacation
After a busy summer, Perdido Dream was a wonderful refuge and certainly stands up to its name. Unlike other condominiums, the beach is a short walk away. Perdido Dream has all the amenities anyone would need and was exceptionally clean. We cannot wait to return in the spring!
I couldn't have stayed at a more inviting and beautiful condo with an extraordinary view! It was so relaxing not to mention so much fun with a group of six women over 50! Thank you so much for making our stay wonderful!
We had a fantastic time. I definitely want us to return. Everything was relaxing and peaceful. The condo was very clean, comfortable and decorated nicely. Thank you for sharing this charming place with us.
Everything about this condo was wonderful. It was decorated so beautiful , and very clean. We spent the week here with our 3 kids and had plenty of room. The kitchen was well stocked with everything we needed. The view from the balcony was outstanding, and the furniture was nice and comfy. The walk to the beach was very short and we felt safe letting our youngest walk to the beach and back to the condo by himself. We will definitely be back.
Simply serene. Best place to stay in Perdido Key! The views are outstanding, great beach, and beautiful condo. Beach goers paradise.
Can't wait to go back! Our stay at Perdido Dream could not have been any better! It is exactly as described and more. Even prettier in person than in the photos. Every room is beautifully decorated, clean and comfortable. The balcony was very private and gave us an incredible front row view of the beach and gulf. We have never been offered free beach service before! This was a huge bonus - it was easy to arrange and a big savings!! We thought we were going to have trouble remembering the 6 digit door code, but we got use to it pretty quick. Shelia did a great job answering my questions before our arrival, then followed up to make sure we were happy with the condo. It would be hard to find an owner that cares more about their guests. I would not hesitate to recommend this great place to family or friends. We will for sure be back! If you're considering staying here, book your dates early on this one before someone beats you to it!!
Absolutely fabulous! I can not say enough about Perdido Dream, it was fabulous! We had a few challenges getting into the condo and Sheila fixed it immediately, we were so impressed with the attention that she paid to making sure everything was perfect. The condo itself was beyond expectations! Furnishings were beautiful and the kitchen had everything you needed! Our favorite part was the balcony, view was spectacular and there was plenty of room for all of us to sit and even enjoy our meals out there. Definitely will return!!
Awesome view overlooking the Gulf of Mexico. The sound of the waves crashing against the shore is soothing to ones soul. Beautifully decorated unit , super clean and a "homey" feeling. Breathtaking sunsets are just moments away. Lots of seafood favorites close by. Everyone needs a vacation with sand on your toes and lots of ocean water to wash your worries away. Highly recommended. Met the owners. They are phenomenal people. They just added to the charm.
Loved this place! This condo far surpassed our expectations in every way! We would have expected to pay way more than what we did for these accommodations. As nice as the photos are, you can't appreciate how nice it really is until you walk through the door and see the view and then look around to see how beautiful this place is! It's obviously important to the owners that their guests have everything they need. The master bed was probably the best we've ever slept in on vacation. We also loved the location of the complex. It was smaller and far enough away from other larger complexes that the beach was never overly crowded, but close enough to attractions that when we chose to be more involved with activities, it was easily accomplished. The best of both worlds! The free beach chairs were a huge bonus! We are definitely looking forward to returning next year!!
READY TO RETURN!!!!! Our stay was simply fabulous. The condo and the complex are even more beautiful in person than the lovely photos depict. Could not think of one thing to improve upon, since Sheila is a very conscientious and diligent property owner/host. Her personal, thoughtful touches are evident throughout. We lacked for nothing. We have estimated we have enjoyed about 23 beach rentals, and this was the most outstanding accommodation and value of all 23 vacations. I hesitate to write such a glowing review, because selfishly, we like Perdido Dream being a well kept secret!!! We were so blessed to find this place, and I believe we have the honor of being the first family to book a return visit. Can't wait!!!
We were so very pleased and pleasantly surprised by the perfect fit of this property to our needs and our activities. We would love to return to this same property anytime but especially during this time of the year.
The property was a perfect fit for my husband and me. It was not too large, not too small, but just right (kind of sounds like The Three Bears and we were just that cozy). The condo was so very well equipped Unlike so many places we have stayed, the air conditioner actually kept the temperature just the way we like it (cool). There was more than enough space for all our things. In fact, there was pretty much a space to put all our stuff so that we were never cluttered. (a pet peeve). The kitchen was also well equipped with everything we needed. All the niceties of home were there. The location was in the same general area as most of our favorite dining establishments. In fact, we could have walked to a couple of them. Grocery stores and a hardware store were within 5 minutes. For us, it is pretty much a perfect location. The location to the beach was also a plus. It was a very short distance from our condo to the beach. That made it convenient to rerun to our room as needed. Also not to be overlooked, was the complimentary beach chairs and umbrella. That was a luxury, as well as a savings.
The owner was most attentive to assure that we were satisfied. Not sure who was responsible, but a nice touch was that paper goods, for kitchen and bathroom, bath soaps, dishwasher detergent, garbage sacks, and dish washing liquid were found waiting for us. We were all around pleased with our visit. We welcome and look forward to returning.
We are having a wonderful time in a gorgeous setting. The condo is perfect. More than we imagined. There are a lot of extra touches. We will return.
Spring Break Vacation. Beautiful, relaxing and refreshing. A beautiful view of the Gulf of Mexico from the balcony.
We enjoyed our stay at this beautiful condo. It had everything we needed for a wonderful vacation. The bed was so comfortable, and the views from the balcony were amazing. We didn't get to use the complimentary beach chairs and umbrella much, due to the weather, but what little we did use it was very nice. There were several days we got to see dolphins swim buy!
Business Trip with Family and Friends. Outstanding unit. Views were great. Unit was well accommodated and maintained, very clean. Had a problem with the AC and service to correct was fast and outstanding.
Love this place! Relaxing, clean, upscale furnishings. Close to anything you need. And Shelia is top notch property manager/owner.
Comforts of home with a breathtaking view! We have found this condo to be one of the best we have stayed in on the gulf coast. It is beautifully decorated with high quality fittings. Beautiful yet comfortable for total beach "kick back and breathe" experience. The owners are delightful and love making sure their guests have a wonderful experience.

January - February 2016
We are fortunate enough to be snowbirds this year. This is the third week in this condo. We have stayed at quite a few condos along the Gulf and this is by far the best we have stayed. We are so happy that we will be here until the end of February. The owners have put a lot of thought and care into this condo. Our needs have been met above and beyond. I have not stayed in a condo that I have not had to buy things for the kitchen. I have not had to buy one thing for this kitchen. I can't believe they even have a Keurig! We use one at home and it is so nice to have one here!
We are here now and LOVE IT! The owners have taken such pride in their Dream! W e have stayed in many condos along the gulf and this is the best by a mile.
Roxie & Dolph H. St. Louis (Kirkwood), MO
Wow! What a fabulous stay in the most perfect condo imaginable! Such impeccable taste in decorating; every need or want anticipated and fulfilled; any inquiry answered immediately! There are not enough words for how blessed we were to find “Perdido Dream” and what caring and thoughtful owners in Sheila and Rodger!
The highlight was the fantastic dolphin cruise (all families should treat the kids to this!) by “Dolphin Cruises Cold Mil Fleet.” They know the secret to entice the dolphins to play and jump in the boat’s wake! AWESOME!!
We really enjoyed Perdido Dream! Thanks sooo much for having such a beautiful place to stay! Hopefully we’ll be back soon!
This is an amazing condo & it was a 1st for Perdido Key. I definitely hope to return as there are so many restaurants that we had heard about but not enough time to go. Stayed here the majority of the time. Taking in as much sun as possible and feeling real special with such a lovely place to stay. Thanks Sheila, Perdido Dream is definitely tops!! Will recommend this place to many.
What a great time we had!! The place beautiful. Thanks.
Joe, Paula, & Jennifer T. Hopkinsville, KY “Eclipseville”
What a wonderful time it’s been here at the “Perdido Dream.” This is a very special time of the year for us. It is a time for us to leave the hustle and bustle of our very busy lives and recharge our batteries and reconnect with each other. Your awesome home made it very easy to do just that. We are not wealthy people but we are truly blessed beyond measure by the time we’ve spent here. Many thanks to Sheila and Rodger for sharing your “dream” with us. May God bless you and yours always.
Mark & Judy, Nashville, TN
Thank you for sharing your beautiful Perdido Dream Vacation home & allowing us to make it our home for the week. Everything started off wonderfully until Hurricane Harvey decided to make himself known as a tropical storm on the west coast of Florida! 3 days of high winds & torrential rains interrupted our beach week. However, the wonderful balcony allowed us to be able to enjoy the ocean waves crashing & nature’s beautiful light show at night. We made the very best of each day! The condo was very well stocked & love the decorations! Thanks again.
Brian, Anita, Francesca, & Adelina Z.
Thank you for a perfect vacation. We had been looking forward to this road trip all summer, and your place exceeded our expectations. Your condo is so perfectly decorated and the view, so spectacular. We will dream of this place all year in Milwaukee and anxiously await our return next summer. The only change we will make is to stay longer. Al Prossimo.

Dear Sheila & Rodger – Thank you so much for sharing your beautiful condo with us! We especially loved the awesome kitchen amenities / spices / extras, the extra comfy beds, the large balcony, the beach chairs, and the beautiful pictures all over the condo! Our 3 sons, Bradley, Ben, and Drew, are 11, 7, and 5. We loved just hanging out at the beach and pool, cooking easy suppers and lunches in the condo, and crabbing at night. We loved Sunset Grille – we highly recommend it to anyone! Laid back, excellent seafood, and oh, so relaxing! We have loved every second of our vacation! Thanks for everything, Sheila!

Cheers to us! Happy Honeymoon – married 10/14. Amazing week here at the “Dream,” can’t wait to return. Thank you both for sharing your home away from home with us – couldn’t have asked for a nicer, cleaner place to stay. Perdido Dream = Perfection! So much fun fishing from the beach, searching for shells, wine on the patio, cooking new recipes in your kitchen. Sunrise shots to sunset silhouette shots. We recommend Cobalt for happy hours 2 to 6:00. $3 wine & wells, $1.50 draft and ½ price apps. Outdoor patio seating on the water – we bought a deck of cards and played for a couple of hours. #SoFun. We also recommend 2 $3 day pass to walk the Gulf Shores State Park Pier. You’ll see more fish than the movie finding Nemo. Cheers!
Heidi & Nick Top Picks
1. Savor the beach everyday…you don’t get this at home.
2. Fish from the shore w/ a pre rigged Walmart pole=$20.

5. Bake cookies and enjoy all week with coffee in the morning.

8. Nothing ever tasted any better than a cold beer on a beautiful afternoon with nothing to look forward to but more of the same.
9. Pick up an inexpensive tube and roll in the waves
10. Take it all in and thank God for all that you see – heaven on Earth.
The Lunsfords, Bryant, Arkansas
Thank you for a wonderful time at your condo, “Perdido Dream.” What a beautiful place to rest, play & enjoy being together with family. We enjoyed swimming at the beach, walking & looking for shells plus naps by the ocean, too. J We have seen dolphins, went on a dolphin cruise with Chase-N-Fins, toured the naval museum & enjoyed watching the Blue Angels practice plus touring the Pensacola lighthouse. We have really enjoyed this blissful spot! We are definitely rested & refreshed. For others to know: Sunset Grille is awesome! Great service & food. Flounders, Pensacola Fishing Pier & area are fun too! The sand may brush off, the salt may wash clean, the tans fade, but the memories will last forever. Thank you again!
We had a wonderful time. Condo was clean and well stocked. We love Perdido and we will be back. Thank you for sharing your “Perdido Dream.”
Sherry, Pam, Krystal, Christie & Mitzie, Shreveport, LA
We have had a wonderful vacation! Your condo is very much a “dream!” Décor is beautiful and everything you need is provided. We decided to cook in most nights which was so enjoyable amongst friends. With six of us we took turns preparing supper for each other. We have had a lot of joy and laughter around the dining table. We have fallen in love with Perdido Key and especially Perdido “Dream!” Hope to be back very soon! Thank you for sharing your dream!
Ken, Melanie, Jess & Kristina
This has been the perfect location for a family vacation. Kristina is getting married in a month, so we were taking a last family vacation. We loved the beach chairs and easy walk to the beach. Multiple times we were lucky enough to watch dolphins from the balcony. We hope to be able to come back in the future and enjoy this beautiful condo. Blessings.
Jen, Cholly and Georgia
We love the Perdido Dream and will be returning very soon. Thank you for sharing this little piece of “salty heaven” with us!

Thank you so much for sharing your home with us. This was a special trip to the beach this year – it was our 8 month old granddaughter’s first trip to the beach. She loved the water ad playing on the beach. The condo is beautiful – very top notch. Thank you so much.
We have stayed in many beach houses and this is by far the best. It is so comfortable and beautifully decorated! Recommend Oyster House, food was awesome. Thank you for sharing your place with us and plan on returning here for our future beach trips!
The Roberts Family
We had a wonderful time in your beautiful condo. We come almost every year and this has been the best by far. Thanks you for sharing your dream place with us. May God continue to bless you and your family!!
Kim and Neil
We are so grateful to be here! “Perdido Dream” has been a blessing to us, a sanctuary for our souls. Thank you for all the extra touches of thoughtfulness evident throughout the condo. It was even better that pictured on the website. Thank you. We have tried to care for “Perdido Dream” as though it were ours, for we hope to be “regulars”! We had a wonderful time visiting our Pensacola friends. The best meal here, in our opinion, is Sunset Grille, right on the water. Casual & Reasonable prices. The Naval Aviation Museum (free) is a must-see. Blue Angel show left us speechless. We were able to worship at Innerarity Point Baptist Church – welcomed very warmly and uplifted by the message and worship. Got our week off to a wonderful start, to view the Lord’s creation on this beautiful Gulf Coast. We thank Him for bringing us here this week! Blessings on you & this place.
Dickey & Gail
This has been a wonderful stay. We have so enjoyed everything. The condo, the fixtures, the furnishings, the beach chairs, the beach, etc., have all been top notch. This is a great time of year and a great place to enjoy it. Thank you so much for sharing your home away from home.
Krystal and Family
