THe only place to stay!!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I have three children and this location is perfect in every way! For once I did not have to break my back lugging everything to the beach! The location is great and the amenities more than meet our needs. There was plenty of room for us all and the balcony was a great place to escape after the kids were in bed. The balcony was a big concern with children, but the doors are to heavy for the kids to open and that was a relief! I was also worried about not being on the first floor. No problems though, there are plenty of elevators and the view beats anything you'll find on the first floor!!

The owner was a pleasure to work with and very timely with the deposit return. We needed that after taking advantage of all there was to do!

If your going to Destin and want to be out of the hustle and bustle this condo is your best choice! Your still close enough to everything, but not smack in the middle of the traffic and crowds.

Wonderful family vacation!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of two adults and three kiddos (age 1, 7, and 9) loved our stay in this condo. The very convenient options of pool and beach kept everyone happy. The kiddie pool was perfect for our one-year-old. The grocery store was super close as well as places for entertainment. This was our first experience using VRBO. It worked very well for us. This property was everything that was promised. Would not hesitate to return and/or refer it to others.

Stunning view, convenient beach access.

  • 4 of 5

I would highly recommend Unit 254! The kitchen was nicely stocked, the furnishings comfortable, the view from the balcony amazing, the keyless entry convenient and the white sandy beaches incredible! We had a small issue with the refrigerator not cooling properly and Mary Lynn called within a half hour and scheduled a service call. Parking is a little far, but not bad. Having a washer/dryer in the unit was very handy. We'll definitely keep this on the future Florida vacation list!

Great place to spend Spring break, even if it rains the entire time!

  • 4 of 5

We stayed 3 nights in March 2016 and thoroughly enjoyed our time there. Beach access is so close, and the view of the ocean is out of this world! Plenty of good restaurants just minutes away. The unit's layout is really convenient and the rooms are spacious. Furnishings and décor make you feel right at home.

The only problem was that it rained the entire time we were there, so instead of enjoying the beach we relaxed comfortably in the condo and read several books that had been left in the entertainment center. Our son took advantage of the internet (included) and played his video games (way too much, I'm afraid). The owner provided a DVD player so we took advantage of that, too!

The owner made us feel that we could just give her a call if we needed anything or had questions. Although we couldn't figure out how to work the TV in the living room (we are technically challenged and don't understand all the cables, etc.), there were 2 other TVs in the bedrooms, so it wasn't a problem at all.

We would definitely recommend to friends and relatives, and we would love to stay again!
