About The Owner

Owner is always available to communicate with and is quick to respond.

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.

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!

Wasn't an unpleasant stay at all. However...

  • 2 of 5

HVAC system very loud especially when it kicked on.

Maintenance man entering unit to change filter as I was coming back from pool. Seems this could've been scheduled during cleaning. Elevators and common area out side elevators were very hot. No cabinet space in kitchen to stock food. Too many hoops to jump thru for reservations and check in (compared to a hotel). VRBO sold my email and now I'm getting SWAMPED with spam/junk emails.

Owner's Response: Well we are glad you had a pleasant stay! Thank you for your feedback. The AC unit is very large and very good. It keeps the unit nice and frosty for our guests. We have maintenance done on it regularly and filters changed once a month or more to ensure it’s proper operation. When big compressors kick in they are not silent and make a knock. Some other units put the compressor/fan out on the balcony and we refused to do that because it’s horrible having that big ugly piece of equipment on the beautiful balcony making noise and heat while your sitting out there enjoying your views and peace and quiet. It just makes sense to be in a closet inside and out of sight and is a courtesy for our guests. Common areas outside the elevators are not climate controlled because they are exposed to the outside hence why they are warmer. All of our guests are more than welcome to use the cabinet space for groceries. We keep only the basic items needed for cooking etc in the cabinets to ensure you will have enough space for all your food. We have families with kids that stay for extended times and it provides more than enough space for every situation. I’m sorry if you felt there were hooos to jump through to rent our beautiful penthouse condo. We have one of the easiest rental processes out there. We do so much to make it easy and even set it up to where you can bypass check in at the front desk. All of our guests get their own door code so they can go straight up and avoid the front desk and start their vacation immediately whereas other guests have to wait for the long process of check in at the front desk. If you had any issues with VRBO, please address those concerns with them since they are a separate entity entirely from our condo review. We are glad you had a pleasant stay and you are always welcome in our home.

Did not like the view. Otherwise it was very nice.

  • 3 of 5

The unit was beautiful! Very clean and, the decor was very nice. We typically stay in an ocean front condo. This unit is not ocean front. For that reason, we would not stay there again.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your feedback. The ocean front views are exactly the reason people love our unit. It has the best views of the beach, ocean and even the city exactly as described in our listing and shown in our pictures. Our listing on VRBO is set up to be as clear and concise as possible so our guests know exactly what they are getting prior to booking. Just take your time and read everything and look at all the pictures we post, they are exactly as the unit appears. Thank you for your stay and you are always welcome in our home

Beautiful Room, Beautiful views, can’t beat this condo.

  • 5 of 5

First the owner and the propert management are amazing! All the information up front very responsive and made our stay easy. The room was exceptionally clean and trust me when I tell you, you can’t beat the views from this condo. You can see the ocean regardless of where you are and the decor and furniture are comfortable. Can’t wait to book this unit again.

Excellent Condo. Top Floor. Top Notch.

  • 5 of 5

You know the saying, a picture is worth a thousand words. Then let the pictures of this condo speak for itself. The views are breathtaking. This unit is very well kept & well laid out for a single person, couple or family. Direct beach access to tortoise colored waters of the gulf. Prepare yourself to stay as long as you can. Relax & unwind. Definitely worth it!!! I’ll be back!!!

Gorgeous Stay!

  • 5 of 5

We loved sleeping & waking up to the sound of the ocean! The views were amazing! Very clean, laundry room, elevators, trash chute very close to our room, that was very convenient! Great A/C but we didn't use much due to an amazing breeze when the bedroom & living room sliding glass doors are open! Chris always answered our emails & text right away and we had a very nice welcome card & wine when we made it to the room! The only thing we were bummed about was tiki bar was not open, the restaurant & store were closed for renovations, which we were not aware of. We also wanted to get I. The hot tub...but small kids using it as a kiss pool! It clearly has a sign with rules! The outside pool was very clean and nice! We will stay again and make more amazing memories in beautiful destin!
