A wonderful and relaxing vacation. Our condo was beautifully decorated. The view was breath taking. The staff was polite and accommodating. We enjoyed our stay and did not want our vacation to end!
Had a great time👍🏼! One elevator was not working but made the best of it. The beach was great,nice friendly staff and property was located in the middle of everything! I love to cook for my family so the only complaint I would have is they could use some new non stick pots and non stick skillets. I would come back with my family!!
I especially enjoyed the patio. The unit itself nicely decorated and clean.
My wife and I really enjoyed our stay at this condo this past holiday weekend. The condo was exactly as pictured on the website and was very nicely appointed and clean. The amenities on property were very nice and well-maintained. The free beach service (umbrella and beach chairs)was also a very nice included touch.
Now to our minor complaints -The first complaint is with the booking/property management agency (Newman-Dailey Resort Properties), who automatically charged me for travel cancellation insurance without telling me anything even though I booked last-minute (three days before arrival). I happened to notice it and complained - they removed it and credited my account. According to the agency, this is their standard business practice - I consider it a very deceptive and unethical practice (if you must, offer it to me voluntarily, but give me a chance to turn it down before you automatically charge me). My complaint is that this charge should never have happened in the first place, and it has never happened to me before in 20+ years of renting houses and condo's in Destin.
The second complaint was with the spotty Wi-Fi and complete lack of cell coverage for our carrier (Sprint) (unless you go outside on the backside entry-way). Although the condo did not advertise Wi-Fi service, it has become expected at nicer locations and should be provided, particularly since the cell coverage was non-existent. I will give the condo owners credit for trying - they had a DSL hook-up with a very cheap router, but it only worked about 10% of the time. I would hate to be the parent of plugged-in teenagers who booked this unit for the week... :) I suggest the owners get a cable modem, and a good quality Wi-Fi router for future guests.
Overall, I would still recommend this property to friends and family, with advance knowledge of the minor points described above.
