Great stay, great host!
The condo is located in a gated, quiet community. Very nice and relaxing, as we felt secure. We really enjoyed sitting on the porch swing under the ceiling fan and relaxing. Many baby lizards running around which was fun for the kids.
The beds were comfortable and we had no issues getting our rest. The couch was also comfortable to sit and relax. Everything worked as it should. Decor was very nice. Ceiling fans in the bedrooms was an added bonus as we normally sleep with the ceiling fan on.
One of the swimming pools is a 30 second walk from the condo which was very convenient. We went to the pool a few different times and there was never more than 5 people there, which was very nice.
Nicole was very quick to reply to text messages and helpful with our questions regarding the area and condo. She was also helpful after our visit to ensure our deposit was returned to us from VRBO. Awesome host.
We decided to drive from the condo to the front of the complex to go to the beach. There is a parking lot for guests to park in and walk across the street to the beach. Walking from the condo would have been a bit of a walk especially if you are planning to take much with you.
We were glad we brought our umbrella as they are a bit expensive to rent on the beach. If you want to sit closer to the water, you will need to rent a beach chair/umbrella combo unless you get to the beach before 9 am. Otherwise they have beach chair/umbrellas completely lining the edge which makes it hard to keep an eye on your things if you are in the water.
The water was super clear, we watched the fish swim around our legs which was pretty cool. The sand is like flour. The beach was beautiful. I would recommend bringing a net, especially if you have kids (to scoop up fish) as I saw many families doing this and it looked like a lot of fun.
The Whale's Tale had great food and we enjoyed sitting on the balcony so we could look at the ocean as we had dinner.
Pompano Joe's also had great food and great views.
We took a drive and ended up at Norriego Point. I would recommend this for anyone who wants to find smaller (but whole!) sea shells or to see live critters. There were many different types of crabs and others along with beach edge. It was exciting for the kids and its free! Very minimal people there.
Overall, great experience and stay! Don't forget your beach umbrella and net for the beach. We would definitely stay again and would rent from Nicole anytime.
Thank you for the detailed review for future guests! We would be happy to have your family again ... we are striving for excellence and take pride in renting our vacation home out for guests to enjoy! Nicole
Overall nice place to stay
First thing Nicole is super nice and helpful. The place is nice and clean and tht kitchen well stocked. My only complaints are the location is a bit far from the beach. The listing made it seem like it was a quick walk across a board walk. It's a ways further than that. Also when I booked it remembered seeing that it came with two chairs and an umbrella for the beach. Doesn't look like it's in the listing anymore, but this was not available for us without renting them. But overall had a great trip.
Thank you for your comments and we are happy your group enjoyed our condo. While the condo is not ocean front it is a short stroll to the beach (less than 2 blocks). Most guests like the privacy the condo offers. Umbrella and chairs are available for a daily fee and have not ever been included with our listing. We do not charge a resort fee surcharge. We feel it is easier for guests to choose what days they would like to rent those items as many guests bring their own and would rather not pay a daily resort fee. We hope you will consider staying at our condo again in the future!
Adorable Comfy Cottage
We just returned from our stay in Destin/Miramar Beach and had an amazing vacation! The beautiful yet simple cottage-theme condo was perfect for myself, my husband, and our two teen boys. The short 6 minute stroll to the beach was perfect. We were close enough to enjoy the fun, yet retreat to the quiet quarters after a busy day. The pics are accurate of this 2bdrm/2bath rental. Plenty of room for each of us, including a full-size kitchen to cook whatever meals we chose.
Clean and friendly complex. Excellent communication with the owner. Close access to pools, basketball court, and tennis in addition to the beach!! Our favorite evening spot was sitting on the wonderful porch swing enjoying the Florida night air. We look forward to returning soon!!
Thank you for the review. We are thrilled you enjoyed your vacation at our favorite Florida spot and in our condo. We look forward to renting to your family in the future!

Wonderful Destin Vacation Spot
We had a wonderful time. The property was located close to everything. Property was spotless when we arrived, all beds, sheets, couches, etc were very comfortable as well. The welcome packet provided is also a very nice and personal touch as well.
Thank you so much! We are glad you had a great stay and hope that you will consider our property again in the future. Nikki
Beautiful beach condo
5 minute walk from the beach. Patio has a swinging bench and looks out on the golf course and one of the ponds. The patio fan was broken but you get a good breeze from the coastline. The decorations inside the unit were so perfect and gave a relaxed beach vibe. The couch is huge and comfortable could probably sleep on it comfortably. The tv worked well for us and the WiFi was fast. The beds were very comfortable and the kitchen has a blender, pots, pans, toaster, coffee maker, strainers and wine bottle opener. There’s a dishwasher but we didn’t use it and the freezer has an ice maker. The washer and dryer are down stairs outside and they take only quarters $2 for wash and $1.50 for dry. We saved money by hanging the clothes up to dry. Nicole was very helpful and responded quickly with our questions. We had to pay $15 each for long term parking permits. The neighbors were pleasant and quiet. We all felt safe staying here. Would definitely recommend this place to anyone.
Thank you for your review! We enjoyed having you all. Just so other guests are aware, one parking pass comes FREE with the unit. Multiple cars require additional passes. We are glad you liked the porch as much as we do!
Beautifully decorated condo in a wonderful location! You can tell the owners put a lot of detail in updating & decorating this property. My daughter & I had an awesome time! The porch swing was a perfect place to enjoy a cup of coffee in the morning or a glass of wine in the evening. The Whale's Tale restaurant is practically across the street and they serve breakfast, lunch, & dinner (delicious options for all three!). Owners were very nice and responsive. There was a water main break during our stay and the owners texted me immediately to let me know. Luckily it was repaired quickly! Free Wi-fi was provided to access your Netflix, Hulu, & Amazon Prime Video accounts as well as cable TV. The beds were very comfortable and the over-sized sectional in the living room was amazing! Highly recommend this property!
