About the property

Condo, 2 Bedrooms + Other (See Description), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

Tops'l Beach & Racquet Resort is situated on 52 beautifully landscaped acres bordered by the Gulf of Mexico and by Topsail Hill State Preserve, with 600 feet of private, sandy white beaches. With the daytime activities and nightlife of neighboring Sandestin and other noted communities to the west, and a nature preserve for quiet and solitude to the east, Tops'l provides the best of both worlds. Tops'l has been ranked 'A Top 50 US Tennis Resort' by Tennis Magazine for 12 years running and most recently by Tennis Online as a 'Top 10 Tennis Resort in the Entire World'. Tops'l has extensive fitness facilities (included in the condo rental) including 12 Rubico clay courts, a world class fitness center, aerobics classes, racquetball court, basketball courts, heated outdoor and indoor pools, a putting green, shuffle board and nature trails for walking, jogging and biking. This private gated resort community also has The Ocean Club Restaurant, The Sandbar, The Pavilion Grill and Bar, the Pro Shop, Snowbirds Club, Kid's Club and Kid's night out and free DVD rentals. Children's programs are offered each day during the season. Tops'l has a Tram Service to transport you and family members in and around the resort grounds.

This 'Gulf Front' condo is located on the beach and faces directly onto the Gulf and white sand beaches, whereas 'Gulf View' and 'Coastline View' condominiums can be on the sides of buildings, or even across a street. Professionally decorated and frequently requested, this gulf front, platinum rated condo overlooks white sands, emerald waters and 2 pools from both the living room and master bedroom. The condo has wireless high speed internet. New Sony TV's were installed January 2010. There's a 46' Sony Bravia flat screen TV in the living room, 32' Sony flat screen TV's in each bedroom and 3 DVD players. The living room and master bedroom furniture is from the prominent Nautical Collection by Lexington. The kitchen has granite countertops, maple cabinets and bar seating for 3. In addition, the dining room has seating for 6 and the balcony has a table that will seat up to 6. The master bedroom has a king size bed with views onto the gulf through a wall of windows. Open the sliding glass door in the master bedroom to let the sound of the waves lull you to sleep, and the black out drapes will keep you there. The large secondary bedroom has 2 double beds and a sitting area with TV and DVD player, as well as a distant view of the bay. There is a queen size convertible bed in the living room. The oversized balcony is perfect for watching sunrises and sunsets, or a school of dolphins swimming by. The large balcony has a dining table seating 6, plus 2 lounge chairs and cocktail table.

Silver Sands Outlet Mall, one of the largest in the US, is less than 5 minutes away. Sandestin's popular Baytowne Wharf is just across the street to the west with shops, excellent restaurants and entertainment on the bay. Concerts on Wednesdays and family movies on Thursdays are popular family outings on the lawn at the Wharf. Sandestin's recently developed Grand Boulevard Town Center, nearby to the east, has upscale shopping and many excellent restaurant options.

We have onsite access to maintenance assistance through Tops'l Beach and Racquet Club should the need arise.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Thank you Kate and Bud for sharing your wonderful condo. Our children also came down to the Tides, but they stayed in a different condo. I love the beaches in Destin and your wonderful view.

I would definitely like to rent your unit again.

Warmly,

Karen and Denis

EXCEPTIONALGULF VIEW!!!!

  • 5 of 5

Exceptional gulf view from living room, dining room, kitchen and master bedroom. Our friends taking this vacation were in another condo here but it was on the side of the building and their view wasn’t nearly as nice. They ended up coming over to hang out at our place. There’s a huge balcony to relax and have meals. Very comfortable beds & nicely decorated. Loved the fitness center. Great bar next to pool. It was great working with Bud. We will be back next year. Thanks Bud for sharing your vacation home with us.

Great condo that sleeps 8 and with a wonderful view!

  • 5 of 5

This high floor condo is great and the view is just breathtaking! An added benefit is that it's one of the few units that are available for rent that has two-full beds in the second bedroom which allows you to sleep 8 comfortably, if needed.

Bud, the owner, is incredibly responsive and wonderful to work with. From the first email inquiry to the post-trip outreach, Bud is clearly interested in having his guests enjoy their stay. When we first arrived, there were a few things that needed fixing (nothing major e.g., drawer in the refrigerator), within 24 hours, all of them have been taken care of. We'll definitely be back! Thanks Bud!

Amazing Views-Perfect

  • 5 of 5

We spent seven days in this condo and it is definitely Platinum rated.The condo is very comfortable - roomy - and has everything you need to make your stay enjoyable. And the view is beautiful - and YES you do have the perfect view from the HUGE balcony as well as the master bedroom and the living room! Every morning we sat in the balcony with a cup of coffee and watched the dolphins play on the beach. The condo is located in the Tides which has two swimming pools and a bar/grill next to the pools. Tops' L is a very nice resort with plenty of amenities- tennis courts, basketball courts a jogging trail and a large fitness center. The Baytown Wharf is located just across the street from Top's L and offers restaurants and lots of things to do for the kids.

The management was very helpful and answered all our questions prior to our arrival and was available throughout our stay as well. Thanks for making this our home away from home during our vacation. We would definitely stay here again.

Owner's Response: Hector, we are thrilled that you had such a good time while at our condo in Destin. We enjoy relaxing there just as you describe, with morning coffee watching the dolphins and beach activity. Tops'l is a great place for activities with the tennis courts, multiple pools, health spa with free classes and trails. Thank you for taking the time to share your experience with others. We look forward to your return. Bud.
