What makes this condo unique

What is amazingly unique about this penthouse unit is that the balcony sits at a slight western angle giving it unlimited full views of the city light and action as well as the entire beach as far as you can see, not just the portion in front of you like some units. This means that you don't have to walk out onto the balcony in order to see the water and the beach. You have amazing views from the living room AND the master bedroom since the bedroom is not positioned back deep inside by the front door.

Great Condo!

  • 5 of 5

The condo had an amazing view. I will definitely be back!

Owner's Response: Glad you appreciated the views. They are the best for sure from the penthouse level. The western angle gives you unlimited views of the beach, ocean and even the city. Most others don’t have the best of all three. And because of all that, our balcony is much more private and quiet too since you don’t get all the noise from the pool and kids area below. Thank you and we hope to have you back again sometime!

Absolutely amazing! 5 stars!!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed here for our honeymoon and the condo was absolutely gorgeous! Beautifully decorated and very clean. The view was impeccable. Loved being able to see both the beach and the city right from the balcony. Sitting out on the balcony with coffee in hand and a key lime pie was the perfect start to our mornings. The condo was also very very cool, which is perfect after spending all day in the sun enjoying the beach! Being on the top floor was also really great, it seemed to be much more quiet than the other floors. The check-in and check-out process was so easy and much better than having to wait in line at the front desk. Also loved not having to worry about a key when we went down to the beach. Chris (the owner) was so helpful and sweet! He was extremely quick to respond to any questions we had during our stay and also made sure that we had everything we needed. My husband and I would definitely stay here again...maybe for an anniversary!

Additional information-

• Rentals for chairs were about $200 for a whole week, and the guys that set the chairs up try to move you closer to the water each day

• Lots of good restaurants nearby

• Parking at the resort sometimes fills up, but there is always a spot

• Traffic in Destin isn’t the best, but worth it

• Bar downstairs and the waiting staff can bring you your drink on the beach

• Great for families- kid’s splash pad and pool

• Laundry cost about $3 per load

Owner's Response: Amazing detail! Thank you! We make sure the condo is top notch for all of our guests and that you have everything you need. I am always available anytime if you have any questions too. I’m glad you appreciated all the amenities specially the views and privacy. It’s so much more quiet and private than the other units and you can see the entire city where other units can’t. The traffic is quite bad in peak summer season but like you said, worth it. Tons of restaurants and bars nearby to walk, drive or Uber. The chair rental service is first class but an additional cost and I’ll provide all rates when asked. The restaurant on site has a great beach service to bring you drinks or food and the tiki bar and convenience store are brand new as well. It’s a great resort and staying on the top floor in our unit is the best for sure. Thanks again for the review and we hope to have you back anytime you like.

Wonderful and amazing place to stay in Destin!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed for a week and absolutely loved the condo! Pictures are incredibly accurate. The place was very clean. And the view. Seriously cannot get any better! Having a view of the ocean and the city of Destin was perfect! We stayed the week of Fourth of July and the amount of fireworks we saw just from the balcony was awesome. Chris, the owner, was wonderful and even left a bottle of wine with a note on the counter! He was easy to get in touch with and responded/answered any and all questions I had. I highly recommend Chris’ place and my family would book his place in a heartbeat the next time we plan a trip to Destin!

Owner's Response: Thank you Tosha. It’s alwsys great to hear constant good reviews over and over from every single guest. Everyone says the same things about the views. It’s just better on the top floor at an angle so you can see all the city as well. Other units have that long narrow tractor trailer shaped with the master bedroom all the way in the back and face out over the pool and noise from the crowds. Ours is unique and so private and quiet. Nothing like having a master bed that looks out onto the ocean and beach when you wake up. And it’s own private access to the balcony on top of that! So glad you appreciated all the things that make our unit so wonderful. You and your parents are welcome back anytime so contact me personally whenever you like.

Our New Home!

  • 5 of 5

"Wow! This is our new home?" That's what our 3-year-old said when we first opened up the door. This condo was in excellent condition when we arrived and there was even a bottle of red wine with a personal note from the owner waiting for us on the counter. The views are great - you have unobstructed ocean views and can also see all of the way down to the harbor. We could see our condo all the way from Tailfins with no problem. Chris has pretty much filled the condo with all of your basic essentials from back home, so don't be like us and overpack thinking nothing will be there! There's dish soap, dishwasher soap, an iron & board, coasters, a fan (not a crappy one either), kitchen utensils/cookware, towels, and all of the extra pillows, sheets, and blankets you could need! We didn't even need to bring the laptop or tablet for our son to watch Netflix and Amazon on because the living room has a smart DVD player (that's a first for us!). With a young child that makes a big difference! Chris sent us a text right after check in to make sure we arrived ok and everything was good. We absolutely hate check-in and check-outs because of how long it takes and there always seems to be something wrong, but having the door codes sent to us beforehand so we could just head on up cancelled all of that and made settling in and heading out easier than ever. I would definitely recommend this unit to anyone. The price was fantastic for being the height of the tourism season and for the quality. There were really only two downfalls. The first was the lack of available carts when you are first getting there and trying to unload your car (but that wasn't really too much of a surprise. The building should have someone checking the floors for carts people left once they were done.) It was disappointing that an umbrella and chair wasn't included (this has been a standard thing everywhere else we've gone). The daily fee to rent was pretty high and if you bring your own umbrella you have to set up pretty far back from the water, but they let you put just chairs anywhere. I'm sure it isn't that bad during the offseason, but be prepared to either pay the hefty daily fee or to not be set up near the water. It wasn't the end of the world because we stayed in the water most of the time but if you prefer to be on the sand keep that in mind. All in all, we LOVED this unit and will stay here the next time we come to Destin. Thank you Chris for everything!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for the amazing detail! We were so glad to have you and that you enjoyed all our unit has to offer. Truly can’t beat the views. I agree with you about the chair rentals. Resorts charge so much for those chairs and umbrellas and then your all crowded up with everyone. We prefer to keep our prices lower and not add that into the rate and people can just get them if and when needed. We like getting away from the crowds personally. Glad you had everything you needed inside. We try to think of everything you might need and hope things don’t get stolen. You were a wonderful guest, very clean and so respectful of everything. You are welcome back anytime so keep my contact info and let me know about next year when you decide. Later in the fall we start booking up for next summer. Thanks again for all the kind words.

I can’t say enough good things about this penthouse condo. We had such a wonderful time visiting Destin. The location is great, steps away from the beach. We didn’t have any issues, and the kids keep asking if we can go back next year.

The view is nothing short of AMAZING. I found myself waking up before everyone else and rather than trying to sleep in, I would sit on the balcony and enjoy the breeze and the sound of the waves crashing. The owner was very responsive with any questions and even left a hand written card and a bottle of wine welcoming us.

We will definitely be visiting again.

Owner's Response: Amazing views is what it’s all about at this condo! So much more to see with the angle it sits at. You can see all of the city all the way over to the bridge at crab island. Thank you again and I’m so glad you had a great time. I enjoy the same thing sitting out on the balcony early in the morning with that view and that constant nice breeze. It’s perfection. Come back anytime!

Fantastic condo!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great vacation! The condo is absolutely beautiful. It was so clean and we were welcomed with a card, bottle of wine, and frosty AC! The views are amazing. We ate dinner on the balcony overlooking the ocean and city. So cool!! We loved being on the top floor too! The owner was very available and helpful, it was so noce knowing we could reach out to him if necessary. We had a great time and would definitely stay here again!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your feedback! The view is absolutely the best isnt it?! It’s nice to be on the penthouse level. Best views, quiet, private and away from all the noise. We are glad you appreciated all the unit has to offer. We go the extra mile to make sure our guests are happy and I’m always available to address any concerns immediately. I hope the kids had a great time too celebrating a birthday while on vacation. You left the place very neat and clean and that’s always greatly appreciated more than I can express. Some people leave such a horrible mess like it’s a motel room or something. You were very respectful of our private residence and are always welcome back anytime. We look forward to your next visit! Thanks again.
