Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday condo in Destin - Southbay by the Gulf

Condo, 2 Bedrooms + Sofa-Sleeper, 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 6-8)

Come to Destin, Florida and enjoy the sugar-white beaches and emerald-green waters!

We have a 2 story condo that is fully furnished with all the necessary kitchen appliances, towels, linens & blankets. You have a reserved parking spot within steps from your front door.

Our condo is located on the beach side of Highway 98 on a beautiful five-acre fresh water lake. Fish right off your deck, or at one of the gazebos located within the complex. It's just a three minute stroll through Southbay's tropical paradise to the sugar-white private beach and we even provide a wagon to make things easier to carry. Once at the beach you will be provided with 2 chairs and an umbrella (March thru October). There are two pools (1 heated) and 2 kiddie pools within walking distance. You never have to cross a street to get to the beach or pools!

Our condo has 2 bedrooms and 2 full baths on the first level. Each bedroom is furnished with a flat-screen TV. The master bedroom includes its own private deck that overlooks the 5-acre fresh water lake with a spectacular view!

The newly renovated second level has a spacious, family room with a queen sofa-sleeper and a complete dining area, with new carpet in 2014. Enjoy watching a movie on the 50” plasma TV with free cable, along with a DVD & VCR. Walkout onto the upper deck and enjoy the beautiful sunsets on the completely furnished deck including a new patio table with umbrella (seats 6) and a new gas grill in 2015. Grab your fishing pole and try and catch a bass or maybe a snapping turtle that are waiting for you in the lake! The fully equipped kitchen was completely renovated in 2013 with ceramic floors and marble countertops. It includes an updated half bath with ceramic floors and not to forget...a washer and dryer for your convenience.

There are other amenities to enjoy at Southbay, two lighted tennis courts, two large pools (one heated) & two kiddie pools. Then a short walk to the private beach with no streets to cross!

We included 2 chairs & umbrella for your use. We have boogie boards, plenty of sand toys, many toys for the kids to play with and a wagon to put all your things in!

Southbay by the Gulf is located in the heart of Destin right off of Hwy 98. There is Harbor Walk Village for shopping, dining, activities and deep sea fishing, as well as a huge outlet mall located about ten minutes away. If you are a golfer, there are several great courses nearby. Super Wal-Mart is less than 2 miles away and there is also a Winn-Dixie right across the street. There are several shops and restaurants within walking distance. The Big Kahuna water park is less than a mile away. There is also a miniature golf course, go-carts and other rides for your kids to enjoy!

Whether you are looking for a nice family vacation, a fun girls trip or a romantic getaway, Southbay by the Gulf will be perfect for everyone!

So schedule your vacation today...put your flip flops on...come enjoy a relaxing time at our condo and have some fun in the sun on the beach in Destin!!!

Guestbook comments from the manager

quote from our guest book,

your condo and location are fantastic. the pool was wonderful, we played tennis, only because you thoughtfully stocked your closet with racquets and balls, forgot ours, watched tv, which is double the size of anything we own. and of course the beach was wonderful.

the island wing company across the street was great.

for restaurants the original Dewey Destin is very casual with great food and the boathouse serves great oysters and has entertainment.

we'll be back

Great condo! Our family of five and small dog had a great experience! The condo was exactly how it was described and the area is very pet friendly. Location is great- close to everything. Tons of beach and pool toys and even toys and games to play with in the condo. We would definitely recommend!

Great Place!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and two boys stayed here in June, 2015. We will be staying again! The décor was very calm and relaxing and we always enjoy a balcony...especially overlooking the lake. The walk to the beach wasn't a problem for us at all. The owners provided practically EVERYTHING needed for the beach. We brought our own floats and didn't even need them. Also, there was plenty of extra cover and pillows. We will be back! Thanks so much for a great stay. :)

Wonderful Stay!

My family and another couple had rented this for vacation. AMAZING! I was skeptical at first but I am proud we made this purchase. Linda was very helpful and nice, she helped with any assistance we needed! We were close to the beach and that made it even better. I recommend this to all!

I have been coming to Destin, Florida for over twenty years now ,and this time topped them all. The condo offered everything we could ask for. Booking it was very simple and the manager was very polite and offered any assistance if needed. The views from the back deck were spectacular. The location of the condo itself was situated directly in the middle of all attractions. We were able to walk to restaurants and shops. Also the condo itself was very clean and well maintained. Overall I recommend this condo for anyone looking to have a great time and a family friendly get away. I will defiantly stay here again.

Great Stay!!

  • 5 of 5

I searched a long time to find a place for my family to stay while visiting Destin. I came across Southbay Unit 46 on this website. Let me tell you it was a perfect find! The location was perfect. You can easily get onto the hwy in either direction. It was only 5 min from the Harborwalk and there were many restaurants and shops within walking distance. There was only a short walk to the beach and both pools were close. This condo had everything and more of what we needed and wanted. We used the boogie boards and beach equipment every day along with the 2 chairs and umbrella that were set up and waiting for us each morning. The beds were so comfortable and the kitchen was completely stocked. It was so nice to be able to grill on the deck to help save money from eating out all the time. I would fully recommend this condo to anyone wanting a relaxing, fun-filled vacation! Thank you, Lynda, for answering all my questions and being so accommodating!
