Hello. We are baby-boomers with a little piece of the beautiful white sands and the emerald waters of Destin. We have personally handled the rentals on our townhomes since 1988. So please feel at ease to enjoy the experience of renting from us and the use of our townhomes. Don and Judy Parsons
Judy Parsons purchased this townhome in 1990
We found our 'Home Away from Home' several years ago vacationing in Destin. We visited many places before deciding on Southbay. The complex is family-friendly and has that 'Old Florida'feeling. Just park at your door with no hassles. All the amenities of the complex are very convenient--beach, pool, tennis courts, fresh-water lake and more.
Unit 67 is our 3 BR poolside townhome. Please enjoy the private patio adjacent to the pool for your outdoor dining and relaxing.
We enjoyed our family time at your condo #67. We took our family including our married son, his wife and new grand daughter! We chose this unit because it was so close to the pool and easy access to the beach. With a new baby it made it so convenient to run back to our condo when needed. We ate in most nights and your kitchen had plenty of storage and items needed for making meals. The open family room/dining area was a great space for all 7 of us to hang out and play games! I also loved having a washer/dryer in the unit. This was our first time to Destin and we enjoyed the beautiful beach, mini golfing, go-carts and shopping at the outlet mall! It was a great week just being together as a family!
I absolutely LOVED this town home. My family (four adults, one 15-year old boy, one 10-year old girl) and I arrived after a very arduous 14-hour drive and were exhausted. It was so comfortable, and spacious, and spotless. And the location was just fabulous! The Pancakery and the Mellow Mushroom Pizza place (along with Sunsations, where you can buy almost anything Destin!) were literally right around the corner! The location of this place is just perfect! The pool really is that close to the back patio. There were tons of beach toys in the outside closet. For those of you that worry about water pressure in your showers? Don't! Fabulous showers! It's a short walk to the beach. And the beach, in my opinion, is so breathtakingly beautiful. The sands really are sugar white, and cool on your feet, which was a new experience for me! And you will not find a better owner to deal with than Judy Parsons. She was so helpful, and so kind throughout this entire process. I highly recommend this town home AND these owners!!
We had a wonderful time. It was 3 teenagers and 4 adults with one the adults being almost 8 months pregnant. The townhouse was right at the patio and just a short walk to the beach. Townhouse was very accommodating. We had complementary beach service for the whole week. The beach guy was great!!!! Will be keeping info on this townhouse for next year's vacation.
This condo was much more than I expected. Extremely nice, neat and clean and in a beautiful community. 75 yards from the beautiful beach and the pool is right outside the patio doors. It has all the amenities of home. God's willing, I plan to return next year. Thank you Mrs. Parsons!!!
Very nice clean spacious townhouse. Enjoyed the closeness of pool and convenient to the beach. Owner was very good about everything.
We thoroughly enjoyed staying in this Southbay townhouse. It was perfect for our group that included 4 adults and 2 children. Being able to step out our back door to the pool worked out great with small children. The beach was just a couple of minutes walk away with only 5 steps to go down! The owners also included a complimentary beach setup (1 umbrella and 2 chairs). Southbay is in a fabulous location with many restaurants and activities close by if you want to venture out, but for us the beautiful beach was enough! What sets this unit apart from the others are the owners! Don and Judy are great! I had a few general questions before we arrived and whether I texted, called, or emailed I always got a prompt response. We will definitely rent from the Parsons again!
We immensely enjoyed our stay at Unit 67 in Southbay. The unit itself was very comfortable and had all the kitchen items, pillows and bedding needed. We had 2 adults, a 17 year old, 8 and 6 year old and the bed types worked great for us. All the beds were comfortable. The owners were very easy to work with and readily available to answer questions. This unit backs up to the pool which was great after a long day at the beach the kids could jump right in for more swimming. The beach is very close maybe 2 minutes walk and that's while toting cooler, rafts etc. The rental includes 1 Umbrella and 2 chairs setup at the beach which was a great plus as we flew in and didn't have any chairs with us. The patio has a storage closet that has a charcoal grill and maybe a few leftover rafts from other renters (we left a couple there and there were some when we arrived), and there is an air hose at the pool so you can blow up any floats too! The complex has a lake that is full of turtles and you can fish too. Parking is in front of the unit so it's super easy to load and unload. We will be back (hopefully soon!)
A great choice for family fun is the Harborwalk which is about 2.5 miles away. Of course the restaurants there are pricey because it's a tourist area and you are paying for the views which are spectacular, but there are free parades, concerts, and fireworks on different nights seasonally, and they have a small midway with carnival games for the little ones and zip lines for the teens (not free of course). You can also walk along the harbor for about a mile or so and see all the boats and if you are lucky like us dolphins. Also here on the docks is Destin Snorkel which has Sunset dolphin cruises and dolphin/snorkel cruises. We did both and had a great time.
AJ's is a good choice for dinner with the kids or drinks, food and dancing later in the evening, they always have great bands and their peel and eat shrimp was way larger than at other restaurants we went to.
McGuires is a Destin favorite with dollar bills stapled all over walls and ceilings. The food is good pub fare salads, burgers steaks etc and it is always busy. Go early or be prepared for a bit of a wait (if you don't care about AC go upstairs to get a table faster)
