Guestbook comments from the owner

Great rental unit! We loved the resort at Tops'l and especially it's location. Unit 202 in the Tides building was so clean and comfortable. Our family of 4 had plenty of room to spare. We will definitely request this condo again each year when we return. This was a true Gulf Front unit and the views were fantastic!

We were in Destin a few weeks ago for my daughter's wedding, first time to visit. The condo was great! We loved the great view of the swimming pools and beach from the master bedroom patio and the living room patio. It was nice to have kitchen items such as coffee maker, blender, etc. We used disposable plates, but the place had plates, cups and glasses. We sure enjoyed relaxing on the patio and people watching. We also had plenty of towels, and didn't have to wash them after every use, so that was an added plus. I received immediate response to our enquiry on availability and all of the paperwork went very smoothly, all handled via email. Thanks Robbie! We definitely plan to stay here next time we visit Destin.

Very Nice place to stay!

Great condo- We really enjoyed our stay here. The owner was very quick to respond to email, and we were able to book this within 24 hours. Tops'l is very nice in general. There are free fitness classes and the tennis courts are superb and do not cost extra to play on. The condo itself is on the second floor with a great balcony right over the boardwalk to the pool and beach. This is a great spot if you like to "people watch" people coming and going to the beach. There are lounge chairs and a dining table on the patio, which was great. Be aware- the kitchen has the bare minimum in terms of cookware and the smallest coffee mugs in the world. Also, the condo could've been cleaner when we arrived- there was some sand left on the floor. If you are able to overlook these things, as I could, you will enjoy this place!

Summer Fun

Verified Stay

We really enjoyed our stay at Tops'l this year. We stayed in a different unit on the 8th floor last year and enjoyed it as well. Positives: it was clean, close to the stairs that you take down 2 flights (one floor) to exit to pool/ocean level, beds are comfortable, washer/dryer work well. Only negatives were that the Keurig didn't work (but there was a functional classic coffee maker,) minimal towels so you need to wash frequently, and there was no remote to make the DVD player work. We couldn't find a baking/cookie sheet in the unit, either. Also, know that the 2nd bathroom is not attached to the guest bedroom--it is directly across the hall.

The owner is responsive to questions in a timely manner.

You would likely get a better/non-obstructed view (only partially tree obstructed in this unit) by staying up higher. Our view was better last year on the 8th floor--but this view is still breath-taking! Quickest pool/beach access is from a 1st floor unit.

We would consider staying in this unit again. Great vacation.

Owner's Response: Glad your Beach Vacation was a 4/star! I will definitely follow up with where the remote and cookie sheet walked off to. It can be replaced. Hope you'll stay many times more. Thanks again, Robbie

Perfect!!! It was the perfect spot..view of both pools, and the beach, not to mention it was beautiful....We will absolutely be staying again! Our 4 kids enjoyed it very much as well! It was equipped with everything we needed! The Master bed was very comfortable...the kids said their beds were as well!

It was nice to be able to sit on the balcony and watch them at the pool, and being on the second floor was awesome!!

Close to everything In town!

We had a great time staying right on the beach in your condo. Our view from the second floor overlooking the pools and the beach was just beautiful. Great location that's Close to lots of shopping and good restaurants. Comfortable beds and soft linens. Thank you, Robbie, we will be back!

Has Potential!

  • 3 of 5

The owner is very nice! pro's: close distance to stairs leading to pool then beach, LOVE Tops'l, nice having 2 full beds instead of twins! Cons: master vent not working, master bath vent so noisy it most likely irritated other condo renters, towels were in cood condition but smelled of smoke bad, HVAC vent coated w/dust & no filter, pipe under sink not properly attached so I spent time cleaning it up & doing maintenance issues, washing comforters that were stained. TP smelled smoke also. I did, however, leave it better than when I got there! lol If updated (including faucets) and those issues resolved, it could be NICE!!! Overall, many people might not be bothered by what bothered us ;-)
