About Judy Parsons

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

Why Judy Parsons chose Destin

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.

What makes this townhome unique

Unit 67 is our 3 BR poolside townhome. Please enjoy the private patio adjacent to the pool for your outdoor dining and relaxing.

Beautiful beach❤️❤️❤️❤️

Guestbook comments from the owner

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!

Had a great vacation once again!!

  • 5 of 5

I just want to say that we had a great time as always at Mrs. Parson's Unit# 67 for 4th of July week. We have been staying in this unit for many years and it never disappoints. It is very clean and up to date and has all the amenities one needs for a great vacation. On top of the condo and it's location right next to the pool we are also provided complimentary beach service. The beach is also a very short walking distance from the condo. I've always enjoyed dealing with the Parsons and we have made many life long friends at Southbay over the years. I would highly recommend this unit or any of Mrs. Parson's units for any family looking for a great and affordable vacation. It has always been my favorite place to stay in Destin and we always appreciate the Parson's hospitality!!

Great for kids but could use a little sprucing up

  • 4 of 5

We had a great visit to Destin and love Southbay. Judy was very helpful when I called to find out about WiFi and gate codes. The beds were comfy. The unit was great for my kids who loved the pool! The beach service was Great, and Abrahm was sooo nice and helpful and even went out of the way to make sure my brother with special needs was having a great time. The complex is in a great location and convenient to so many places. You can walk to grocery store, target, Dunkin Donuts, and plenty of other quick bites. We went to LuLu’s for a dinner out, and it was a HUGE hit for the kids with a great sand play area, quick service, good food, and a great atmosphere. A few minor issues with the unit included about 5-6 light bulbs out throughout the unit, the ac drain line leaked a little water on the floor, the carpet turned our feet black (probably just needs one good shampoo from years of people trekking through), and there was trash left on the nightstand (regular cleaning lady was out of town). Also, there is only one thermostat down stairs, so it gets freezing downstairs but is really warm upstairs. None of these things ruined our trip, but they are definitely things that need to be addressed.Overall, we enjoyed ourselves and would definitely stay here again if minor issues were fixed. Thanks for letting us stay with you!

Owner's Response: So glad you had a great vacation and that you will be back again... Thank you for letting us know about the minor details. There was a small crack in the AC line that was causing the leak but it has been repaired so all is good with the AC. The parking lot has been resurfaced and I am sure that was the issue with the carpet but it had been thoroughly cleaned and ready now. Maintenance has replaced all lights in kitchen so all is good. Thanks again. This info will assure that next guests will have an enjoyable vacation. Blessings, Judy Parsons

Fantastic family vacation spot!

  • 4 of 5

Our family enjoyed the close location to the beach, the wonderful beach service, and the peaceful accommodations. We enjoyed the feeling of being off the beaten path although we were just minutes away from restaurants and retail. Southbay at the Gulf is a wonderful for a family vacation!

Nice place to stay in my DESTINation

  • 5 of 5

I enjoyed my stay at this unit in Destin. Location is good. Just off the beach and close to everything Destin has to offer. I was by myself, but I could see that it would be excellent for families. Most of it is in very good condition. I would stay here again!

Home Away From Home

  • 5 of 5

The condo was equipped with everything you needed. It had a kitchen to make meals and 3 bedrooms to fit the whole family. Felt like a home away from home in our vacation. The beaches were amazing with white sand and clear water. It was nice to come home at the end of the day to this condo and relax. This was a great rental.

We had a super vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We had the best stay and will definitely stay there again! The townhome was super clean and comfortable, and had all the amenities that we needed. The beds were very comfortable and we slept great! The location was very quiet and away from any road noise. A great grocery store was just a two minute drive away and provided everything we needed.

The beach as amazing. It was a short 60 second walk from the townhome. The beach was relatively quiet while we were there, so it was extra relaxing. We spent 3 days just laying on the beach and watching our 5 year old play in the sand and water.

We definitely recommend this townhome to other families. We will be back!
