Guestbook comments from the manager

******5 Stars*******

We had a great time at Tides at Topl's 103. The accommodations were excellent. They are clean. You have a good view and you can enjoy the breeze off the gulf and hear the waves. We had a very relaxing time and the hot tub is a short distance which was nice since we went in November and the evenings were sometimes a bit on the cool side. The service and amenities were excellent. The beds are comfortable. We would highly recommend this unit.

The best location for a room when multiple families are going!!

  • 5 of 5

We have a big family with "older teenage kids" and we were spreading our mother's ashes in Destin. Hands down our room was the happening place while we were there! We had a blast everyday and I highly suggest if you are going to all get together get this room!!

wonderful family friendly place!

  • 5 of 5

We just spent a week at Tides at Tops'l in unit 103 and had a great time! You cannot beat the location of this unit! It is on the first floor, enabling us to walk right out our back door to the pool and beach. we could see our kids in the pool by taking just a few steps out of the condo. The beach is just past the pool, across a boardwalk. If our kids forgot anything, it was so easy to just run right back up to the condo to get it. The condo is a spacious 2 bedroom, 2 bath, with high ceilings, full kitchen, and washer/dryer. The only things we needed to buy for the unit was any food we wanted to cook, coffee (standard 12 cup coffee pot/maker), and detergent for the washer. It is an older unit but it is nice and homey. There was a vacuum cleaner in the closet of one of the bedrooms which was awesome for any sandy cleanups my kids brought in. Beds were comfortable and bedrooms had carpet in them. The rest of the condo has faux wood tile floor. Back patio that leads to the pool is very spacious with a full table and chairs, and 4 lounge chairs. There is a restaurant/bar at the pool that made meal time SO EASY if you have kids. You can easily walk down, order, and eat poolside or bring it back to the condo. This feature is just a must with unpredictable young kids. There were fun activities for kids almost every night at the pool. Ie: they played Toy Story on a big screen poolside one night, there was live music one night, karoake, painting activities, and s'mores. Just across 98, on the opposite side of Tops'l, is the Baytowne Wharf. We rented kayaks there one day, rented a boat another day, and had lunch at a fun outdoor restaurant on the water. You can also rent bikes to ride through Baytowne, rent jet skis, etc. The activities between Tops'l and Baytowne are endless. I would definitely recommend this first floor unit. My family of 5 stayed very comfortably here and can't wait to go back!

Unit in major need of repairs/upgrades, needs new cleaning staff

  • 1 of 5

Let me start by saying we have rented this unit for 3 years in a row. This year was not up to par, even by low standards. Upon arrival, unit had sand on kitchen counters, floors very sandy. Obviously not cleaned recently. Master shower door frame has black mold growing. Turned the jetted tub on and brown nasty stuff came out, again some form of mold. Kids room has large "lumps" under very worn carpet, not sure if its rotted padding or whatnot. The rear sliding glass doors have a broken lock! So much for safety! There was a bar to put in door, that is in poor shape as well. Unit has overall stale/moldy smell throughout.

We killed multiple spiders in the unit over the 3 days we were there. The heat did not work! The nights were in the 30's and the unit was about 62 degrees. Heat was repaired on the morning we left. We rented for 4 days, left after 3. Just not worth staying in the unit one more night.

Overall, great view and unit location. NEEDS extreme TLC and a new cleaning company. The cleaning fee is high anyway and to arrive and leave unhappy is not worth it!

In need of some attention & a better mgt co.

  • 2 of 5

We stayed in this unit last year and liked it so much that we wanted to stay there again this year; however, we were met with a few disappointments this time. Upon arrival, I opened the oven to find it contained 3 huge black (grease?) mounds in the bottom of it and white foam (oven cleaner) still all on the side walls, as if the cleaning process was begun, but never completed - the racks were also left sitting on top of the stove. When I went to get something to drink, I found that the icemaker didn't work. Then, when setting up my coffee for the next morning, I found that the coffee filter holder was broken, so you had to put the whole contraption together just right, or it wouldn't stay attached. My simple request for a new coffee pot replacement went unnoticed. Aside from these things, there were several obvious stains on the carpet in the bedrooms and a couple of small spots on the furniture (as noted in the prior review). We still love the unit and would like to stay there in the future, but the lack of response to my reports (within their app) by Real Joy made me feel like I got jipped on this stay - they already had my money. I got what appeared to be an automated "thanks for contacting us - enjoy your stay!" email when I informed them of all of these things. No other responses from them as of today, 9/15/15.

Owner's Response: We are sorry you experienced the oven in disarray, the inspector started the self cleaning process and it wasn't finished by the time he left. As far as your requests, we found a few emails from you, noting issues, but all of them stated you wanted us to address the issues after your departure. We were never able to find an email or a log of a phone call from you requesting a new coffeemaker. We are sorry that we didn't pick up on the fact that you wanted to be called, because it sounds like that was at the heart of the things. We have already addressed most of the issues, and our Ops team is assessing the unit to make recommendations to the owner. Again, sorry for your experience, and thank you for your feedback.

Love Destin area

  • 3 of 5

We have stayed in this room before. We love to stay at The Tides at Topsl because of the closeness to the beach and the Tides pools. We also love being on the ground level because the kids can come and go easily. The room really needs some TLC though. The carpet really needs replaced by tile, it is dingy. Also the couches and chairs need replaced by something that would be able to be wiped off, leather or something comparable.
