Mediocre..at best....But LOVED DESTIN

  • 2 of 5

We absolutely loved the location. We had beautiful weather and the beaches and food were outstanding..

Constantly dealing with tiny little ants all over the kitchen...And any food left out of the refrigerator ...was beyond disappointing..

There was a constant drip right outside our bedroom that started around 2-3 a.m. and continued til morning. Neither of us slept thru the night one night the entire week. What should've been a restful week was not.

When we attempted to notify someone we called the number given to us. What we received was someone that BARELY spoke English and was rude beyond words. On our THIRD attempt we were, reluctantly,finally given a phone number for our contact person.

When we arrived we were unable to use any surface to sit anything down as the unit had not been wiped down. We assumed that it hadn't been occupied in a while. My husband and I secured cleaning equipment and wiped everything down.

We were assured we would be refunded $$$ in addition to our deposit.

We would probably not rent this unit....Nor recommend it...But we would return to Destin

Nice property, untrusted and rude owner

  • 1 of 5

I stayed with my family at the given property between 6-8 of October.

The instructions we had prior arrival to the property included the details on how to use the keypad lock and the backup box. It didn't include any instructions about the deadbolt lock though.

On 7th October we went out of the apartment from the back door (it's on the ground floor) and left the deadbolt locked, as I knew the backup box contains the key to unlock the front door. The keys didn't match the deadbolt lock nor the backdoor. Hence, we got stuck out of the house.

I called Susan (the landlord) and asked for her assistance. She said she's not there, but advised to call a lock picker and said that if it's my mistake - i'll pay for it, otherwise she'll reimburse me. After the lock picker opened the door, we called Susan and he explained that the keys didn't match. Susan and I spoke a few minutes later and she said she's going to reimburse me for the fee I paid - $70.

After a while I asked why she didn't reimburse me and she ignored my messages. In the second attempt she said she's going to reimburse me at the end of the month, but again, she didn't reimburse me.

Additionally, her language was extremely unpleasant (getting into her expense calculations and blaming me).

Bottom line - I would recommend to be careful of the people you make business with. If I had the chance to read such review before I rented the property, I would run away from this deal.

Owner's Response: I have managed property in Destin for over 20 years. This is my first negative review. I stated that I would pay for the locksmith if the issue were my fault, that I pay at the end of the month etc. I have a push button lock on the front door, with back up keys for that lock if it should fail. Which it did not. I have keys for the sliding glass door, he did not take those with him when he left. He locked the dead bolt and didn't take the keys provided. I do not see how this is my fault. He proceeded to text, call, email and threaten me to get me to reimburse him. I am a fair person but I will not be taken advantage of and pay for something out of fear of a negative review. I do not appreciate being harassed. I welcome all guests and go out of my way to accommodate everyone. My condo is in a great location, very clean, updated and has many upgrades. I am sorry he felt the need to try and hurt my owners income by posting this negative review. I sincerely appreciate all of my guests and have some that have rented from me year after year. Thanks Susan

Beyond my expectations. Definitely a bargain!

  • 5 of 5

I was plesantly surprised at the level of quality the home chose to use. Well stocked kitchen. High end towels, sheets, blankets. Felt like home instead of a condo furnished for renters. The beach access was about 100 yards from the lanai; very convenient. Coffe shop and restaurant within walking distance. Definitely a greater value for the money than expexted. I recommend it, and will use it again.

Great Location, exactly what we wanted

  • 5 of 5

Great Condo, with everything we needed for my wife and I with our 5 year old. Across the street from the gulf and only a half block from beach access. We loved the heated pool. Shopping and restaurants were within walking distance. Fairly quite area as well, without too traffic.

Beautiful Condo

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I (Plus our 3 little ones) rented this condo in early August! It is beautiful! All the appliances are newer. The beds are comfortable and the condo it very clean. I would say it is very kid friendly except for the table. The table is very high and I was nervous each time one of my kids sat at it. I would recommend bringing a folding kids table if you have little ones.

The condo is walking distance from the beach and right next to a cute little restaurant called Camille's.

The only thing I would recommend is a hook for towels on the patio. Thanks for the great week!

Relaxation Station!

  • 5 of 5

This condo is absolutely fantastic. It has everything you need and is steps to the beach. It is very clean and well maintained. You can see the ocean from the porch and is great in the morning to sit and drink a cup of coffee. We packed our wagon each day and walked to the beach at the public access with a bathroom and showers. We had a wonderful time and are looking forward to next year. The owners are helpful and quick to respond. If you get to stay here, you are lucky! Thanks for a wonderful vacation.
