Why Matthew chose Emerald Coast-Destin Area

Location Location Location! You stay here once and you will know why this property is so popular. If you like the beach you feel you have struck it rich. Closest to the ocean you can get. Easily walk down with your coffee or back up for lunch, bathroom etc. This first floor unit makes your vacation one you won't forget.

What makes this condo unique

It's like this : You know you are in love with the Emerald coast the 1st morning you wake up and sip your coffee on your balcony and decide if you are going to stroll the beach, swim in the pool, go shopping, play golf, go fishing, parasailing, play volley ball on the beach, etc....??Discover what Destin has to offer....??15 min walk to Beach Walk Cafe 850-650-7100?15 min walk....

Guestbook comments from the owner

We stayed in this condo June 2011 and absolutely loved it. It was far enough away from the pool so there was not alot of noise at night. The condo had the most comfortable king size bed in the master room that I have ever slept in on vacation. Thank you guys for making this a very relaxing visit for us. We look forward to next year!

Notes:
We both have traveled to many different beaches but we just kept coming back to Destin!! The location of this condo offers so many advantages. All shopping is North just a bike ride away, Close to Destin Harbor and its restaurants and night life. But still very close to Sandestin and Seaside. Great walking and biking path right outside the front door! Beautiful white sand beach right outside the back door!

Don't forget to eat at The Donut Hole, and we also love The Back Porch ! Matt was sooooo helpful and was exactly the type of person I want to deal with every year as I plan my vacation ! Thanks Matt, especially for letting me have the condo YOU planned for your family that very weekend on such late notice... wow !

Great place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

We loved this condo! Beach is just out the patio door. Most of the time we had the pool to ourselves. Great shopping and food close by. Matthew was very helpful! Would definitely recommend.
