About Eva

We purchased this unit #1617 in April of 2012. We have owned and maintained rental properties in Destin since 2008, but have never managed a rental in a large self-contained resort complex. The idea of having everything within a phone call or short walk away was really appealing to us, especially being able to call in a meal order or a pizza and having it just an elevator ride away! The general store is located in the lobby and is so handy for the forgotten essentials.

Although we reside in Minnesota, our trips to Destin are frequent as our children and our grandchild are FL. natives and live nearby. We find that all the great ammenities at Sundestin make it especially lucrative for the kids to come visit.

. You can literally park your car in the complex lot and not use it again until it is time to pack it up and go home.

This complex appeals to every kind of traveler from large vacationing families to overnight guests that might just want a steam, sauna, swim, or massage, to break up a long tedious road trip.

So long story short, we fell in love with the complex and it's many ammenities first, and after viewing many sales units, walked in our unit and knew instantly it was the place we would most want to be for an ideal vacation.

Eva purchased this condo in 2012

Why Eva chose Emerald Coast-Destin Area

We selected Sundestin as our rental property because the immediate area has so much to offer. The complex is a self contained resort and meca of fun, sports, and activities. Spectacular gulf views, beautiful sunsets, many water activities, golf, shopping, beach hikes, shell hunting, and great restaurants.

Our Sundestin complex is well maintained and offers a 24 hour desk and security team.

The minute we walked into this unit we fell in love with it, and knew no other unit would surpass the beauty and give us that 'you are REALLY on vacation now' feeling that hit us instantly. This unit's WOW factor was unlike any unit we had viewed previously and since. The furnishings, color schemes, and arrangements give you a feeling of beach, fun, casual or elegant. It fits every kind of travel need.

What makes this condo unique

After viewing the other units in Sundestin, we felt that no other unit offered the view and spaciousness that our 1 bedroom/ 1 1/2 bath unit did. This sixteenth floor unit is high enough to observe all the activity on the beach and also has incredible views of the city at the same time. Even the kitchen window offers beautiful views of the northeastern side of Destin, which include the Bay and the Mid-Destin causeway bridge.

If you are a restless sleeper, you will find the lull of the tide hitting the shore at night the perfect cure for a peaceful sleep. The bed is comfy, the view is spectacular,and the condo is lovely!

Enjoyed our Stay

  • 4 of 5

For the price this condo can not be beat. Eva was very prompt on replies. Checking in was very easy, just had to pick up a parking pass at front desk but besides that Eva sends you the door code.

Condo is small but adequate for 2 people. Very clean. The view is awesome, as we are sunset fanatics.

Only issues we had was the vertical blinds in the LR needs replaced, several slats are missing and one is broken. You do need to close them in the late afternoon as the sun shines directly into the condo prior to the sunset.

My other issue is MY problem but the bed is quite firm and as I get older I have a hard time sleeping on harder beds. So if you don't need a soft bed it will be fine for you. That is the only reason I would not rent this unit for myself, but would highly recommend it to others who are not wimps like me.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your time and attention to reviewing our property. We are so happy you enjoyed your stay. In response to your review.... we are aware the blinds are a constant problem. Younger children tug, pull, and try to open them without using the wand, which almost always results in missing pieces. Although we like the look of them when they are under proper construction, the continued maintenance is not worth the end result. We are planning on replacing the blinds with blackout drapes in the next month. Your mention of this makes us even more aware that this will have to be a top priority. Unfortunately the bed is of such diverse opinion, that we have no room to improve. We have had more guests tell us that it is the best sleep they have ever had. Our last guests actually wrote down the exact specifications of the mattress so they could try to order it online. You are the 1st guest to state it too hard. As much as I would love to have it to your exact soft specifications I think it is more guest friendly to have the mattress somewhere in the middle. We even ordered a gel mattress in our new sleeper sofa to make for a better sleeping experience for additional guests. Over all, we thank you for selecting our condo and your input. It is our go to provide our guests with the best vacation experience possible.

Fabulous vacation

  • 5 of 5

I had to take a few mintues to rave about the Markham's condo at SunDestin! The condo was in tip top shape upon arrival. The views were extraordinary. Eva was quick to respond back during the rental process and very quick to refund our damage deposit soon after our departure. We felt at home in the condo and were pleasantly surprised to see how big the unit was. We appreciate everything. The only thing I can think of for suggestions would be to change out the comforter and shams in the master bedroom to perhaps update the look of the room. I typically remove this from the bed as soon as I arrive but because it was tan in color, I did think it made it look a bit "dingy"/outdated. Otherwise, it was a perfect home away from home! You really can't beat the value and views you get from the 16th floor!

A Great Place to Stay!

  • 5 of 5

We loved the condo. It is spacious and the view from the balcony is beautiful. The sunsets were spectacular. The balcony was shaded most of the day which was a nice bonus. Eva's number is on the fridge, and she does want you to contact her if there's a problem. The SunDestin's laundry room was very convenient. We'll be back!

Best Time Ever

  • 5 of 5

My daughter, myself and two of my friends headed out Saturday morning for Destin for a few days! Got to the condo and it was just perfect. The views were amazing and the water and beach were perfect. It is right in the middle of all the action with plenty to do. We ate at the Back Porch and Harry T's! Shopped at the outlet malls. But we came to relax and we spent most of our time on the beach! I cant wait to head back as soon as possible. Thanks for a great stay!
