Excellent Place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

I brought my two teenage kids with me to stay in this home for spring break 2014. My temporary disappointed at not being as close to the beach was very short lived when I discovered how wonderful the interior of the home was. And then discovered that the beach was not very far from the unit at all. Furniture was nice, beds comfortable, and the electronics were up to date. Only drawback is a somewhat tight kitchen, but very manageable. Will stay again! Free golf was great...

FYI - Bedrooms are upstairs, so not handicap friendly if that is necessary.

I have been coming to this area for a lot of years. I have stayed at the big condo's on the beach, which comes with a BIG PRICE. At some point you realize that there has to be something more reasonable with the same access to the beach. This is your spot! I have been to this particular condo on several occasions now. Each time I find that this condo is clean and well maintained. While not right on the beach, it's just a little farther walk then my mailbox at home, it's that close! It has a beach/home like décor, which I have found on par with the big condo's, very pleasing and comfortable. Everything is here but at a more reasonable price! I have been in other rentals , but this one is my favorite. Everything is but a short walk away, beach, restaurants , amusement parks, stores the lot. I will certainly return to this condo in the future.

My Favorite Place to Stay in Destin

  • 5 of 5

I have stayed at over 10 various vacation rentals in Destin.... Prices have ranged from fair to minor fortunes. I am not the type of person that writes reviews often, but I feel that this town home deserves my rating. For the past five or so years, my family has chosen to return to this particular rental for many reasons. I come to Destin with my family, every year, expecting a "getaway." This place is just that. I have learned that spending that small fortune on two bedroom condo sky-high, is stressful, I end up worrying about how much we spend, and it usually cuts into our spending cash. One reason we keep coming here is because this place is fairly priced and we end up with much more cash to spend outside of the rental. One of my favorite features about this particular location IS its location. It is away from the highway, the beach is right there, there are ponds to fish in, exclusive pools tucked away from beach traffic, the Big Kahuna is across the street, The Track is in walking distance (in case any of you have tried crossing the street in a suburban during peak season....it's a NIGHTMARE!), Target and Winn-Dixie are right down the road, and the majority of local restaurants are within a five minute drive, or walk. It is about 10 minutes or less to Mid-Bay bridge, so you can escape all the city to city traffic on the drive in..... I have come so often, I know what to expect by now, the place is always clean, well maintained, very cute decorations, and CHILD FRIENDLY!!! Once, we locked ourselves out, called the front office, and a lady was there to let us in within 10 minutes..... now that's service. I really enjoy my stay every time I am there, I can't really think of any complaints I have....Each time I arrive, the place looks better and better.....so I guess the owners are big on upkeep..... This is the place I recommend to friends, family, and strangers.... sleeps a lot of people, plenty of space (you don't feel like you are crammed up in a closet)..... Try it out, I think you will see what I am talking about when you do.
