Great beach condo on the gulf
John was a great host. This condo is exceptional for several reasons. The owner provides a lot of essential items that are often lacking in rental properties, including laundry, dishwasher, dish, and bath soaps; trash bags; starter coffee with cream and sweetener, basic condiments (salt, pepper, etc.). The unit also has LOTS of bath and beach towels, beach chairs, an umbrella, boogie boards, hats, books, blankets, pillows, extra sheets, DVDs, ice chests, flashlights. You name it. Just bring your own food and drinks. Our family of 6 was very comfortable and there was plenty of room for everyone. The unit is very open, with the master bedroom in an open loft above the family room, so there isn't much privacy aside from the 3 bathrooms. From my perspective, that helped our adult children to helped with each other and us (no isolation unless you were in the downstairs bedroom isolator). I found that to be great for our family. We played games, watched movies together, and everyone went to bed and got up shortly after the sun came up. The unit is very bright, so if you don't like light when you sleep, be sure to bring a sleep mask for your eyes, especially in the masters. You have a great view of the gulf from upstair, and when the sun rises it is bright!
The location is great. You can walk to the bakery, pub, and ice cream shop. The grocery is 5 minutes away. Lots of great places nearby (Local Catch and Stinky's were favorites).
John was extremely responsive. We called because the cleaners forgot to put out some items, and John had everything corrected immediately. They even put ant traps in the kitchen for those little sugar ants, even though we hadn't mentioned it. We had a terrific time and Plan to rent. again.
Fabulous Gulf Front Views!
This unit was lovely-- comfortable and spacious with amenities galore included by the owner who was helpful and accommodating every step of the way! Beach is white sand beautiful and surprisingly uncrowded. Many good restaurants nearby and locals are very friendly--a wonderful getaway!
Incredible views! Everything we needed!
We had a lovely time on our family vacation. The views were spectacular!!! Watched dolphins while eating breakfast on the balcony. The kitchen had everything we needed. We loved that we could look straight out at the ocean from the bed in the master bedroom (loft). Our daughters were thrilled with the space in their bedroom and having separate sink areas was a definite plus for them. John makes sure to supply everything you could possibly need including beach towels and chairs. We walked to Trebeache one evening and had a fabulous dinner. I love it that this stretch of beach has smaller condos and single-family homes so it isn't as crowded as other areas. We will definitely recommend John's unit to others and will stay here again for future family vacations.
Amazing condo with all the amenities of home!
This was our first time staying here and we were completely surprised by what we found. The descriptions of this condo are accurate and quite frankly are a little modest. This unit is well maintained and has a beautiful view.
But what is not told in the description is all the great items that are found inside of this condo that really makes you feel like you are at home.
My favorite item I found in this unit was a French press. I like drinking coffee and when I discovered this little beauty my mornings were that much better. The list of items that are in this condo could go on and on, but I will just hit on the items that I found here, that other condos we stayed in did not.
An emergency pack with batteries and flashlights. Clear tape and scissors, comes in handy with kids and crafts on rainy days. DVD's galore! There are several types of movies, both old and new. Lots of books to grab and get lost in while on the beach. Beach towels and a bunch of beach toys, chairs and other handy items that you can use on the beach rather than go out and buy them for a one time use.
This is a great place to stay and John is a great person to help you navigate through the local attractions and the surrounding area. Best of all, when my son forgot his stuff toy there, he gladly mailed it back to us with a personalized letter to my son.
Outstanding unit and views. We sat and watched the sunset every day from the deck and large windows. The unit is wonderfully furnished and ideally located to the beach and surrounding locations.
John goes out of his way to be helpful and insures that you are pleased and that everything is fine. Can’t wait to return next year!
Don’t miss the great ice cream shop just around the corner.
Very nice condo tucked away in a quiet neighborhood, with gorgeous views of the gulf. After staying in Destin, we wanted a quieter place. No crowded beaches, traffic, or long waits for a dinner out. Condo had everything we needed, and what we didn't have we got at a quick trip to Publix/Walmart. Beach chairs set up early every day and lots of beach items to rent if needed. Enjoyed dinner at Goatfeathers and ice cream at Blue Mountain Creamery. John was great to work with, and made renting a breeze. Hope to return again soon!
Lovely, quiet area with beautiful views of Gulf and incredible white sand beach. Great area for a couple, families with children, gals or guys getaway, or a reunion gathering. A true beach retreat!
