Great Views, Terrific unit
First, the good news: Beach Retreat 404 is very nicely decorated and spotlessly clean, and some excellent design choices were made in what looks to be a recent remodeling of the kitchen and bathrooms. So, A+ for style and aesthetics. But the owners need to upgrade a few things if they want to earn a 5-star rating. The kitchen appliances, particularly the toaster and coffee maker, are cheap and barely functional, the knives are largely dull, the utensils aren't the best, and the cookware is sparse (two pots, two pans). The "sleeping pillows" on the beds have "more show than go;" they were uncomfortable enough to take away from a pleasant night's sleep. Not big things, and I genuinely hope the owners will read this and make those relatively inexpensive fixes.
Now for my big complaint, which is not directed to this unit's owner individually, but rather to the Beach Retreat HOA and property managers. Quit calling your pool "seasonally heated," because it's not and that's false advertising on a critical issue for anyone vacationing during much of the "off-season." Better yet, heat the damn pool so that what looked like around 50 renters who were there when we were in early November could have gone swimming in weather that was still plenty warm enough to be outside in without having to do the Polar Bear Plunge. What really gripes me is that I called the property management company on Saturday, got referred to the HOA group, left a nice message begging them to heat the pool and even offering to take up a collection among the other renters to pay for it if cost were truly an issue ... and didn't even get the courtesy of a return call.
Maravilla, virtually right next door, heats one of its pools (pleasantly so; a guest there invited us over one day). So here's my message to anyone considering renting at Beach Retreat off-season: ignore the BS about a seasonally-heated pool and ask "can you assure me that the Beach Retreat pool will be heated during the time when we will be there?" If the answer is less than a definite "Yes," then just say "thanks but no thanks," then look for units in complexes like Maravilla that heat their pools. I hope enough owners of Beach Retreat rental units see this post to realize that the wise choice is to heat the pool going forward, rather than sustaining the loss of revenues from continuing to decide not to.
Condo was so nice in the pictures...even better in person. We were very pleased with the decor and cleanliness, not to mention the great communication with the owner. Pool area was plenty big for the facility. Beach was super easy access. Thanks for making the experience so effortless!
This condo was clean and beautifully decorated. The location across the street from the beach was convenient and easy to walk to. We have been to Destin now 3 times. This time we happened to have come at a time when the weather wasn't very good. Rain and thunderstorms were forecast for every day. We did make it to the beach early in the day before the rain came. The beds were spacious and comfortable. I would highly recommend this condo to others.
Our stay at Beach Retreat 404 far exceeded our families expectations, the condo was so beautiful, clean and well maintained, we had all the amenities anyone could ever desire. it is hard to know when making a reservation online, if the photos accurately reflect the property, In the past, we have found that some pet friendly rentals are just not as nice and not truly kept clean, but not in this case! This condo was even more beautiful than the online photos showed. Our family, including our four legged buddies, truly felt at home. We relaxed and enjoyed the pristine beaches and clear waters in Destin. We will come back again and again, and rent from Renee and Laura who are very welcoming and went the extra mile to ensure we had a fantastic family vacation. We have already been telling our friends to vacation at Beach Retreat. Thanks for an awesome vacation, Lisa
It was really a great condo. It had all the amenities one would need for a relaxing getaway. Nice kitchen with plenty of serving pieces. We loved getting fresh seafood from Destin Ice and cooking as we find it a relaxing activity. We also went deep sea fishing and that was a hit as well. The beds were super comfortable and we enjoyed having cocktails each night on the balcony. I have no complaints whatsoever. Very well maintained and the condo was close to everything. Have plans to stay again next year. We travel a lot, mostly to the Carribbean, but this was a great alternative and close enough to drive. The pool was great for a fresh dip after being at the ocean all day. My shih-tzu could have stayed on that balcony all day long. he loved it.
We are here now and loving it. Beautiful views, great area, pretty condo,pet friendly. Just cannot find that third bathroom that was listed for this unit. Have I lost my mind?;)
Beautiful sugar white sand and blue/emerald water is the main attraction of our beaches. However, the area also has many things that bring guest to the area year after year. We are well known for our deep sea fishing as well from the Destin Harbor. We have a great water park and numerous other attractions for the kids and kids at heart. Our outlet malls, cinemas, restaurants complete the vacation experience.
