Overview

About the property

Condo, 1 King Bedroom + Bunks , 2 Full Baths, (Sleeps 2-4)

We totally renovated the entire condo. There is no other condo in Coral Reef with this same floor plan. We stripped it down to the studs, moved walls, and replaced everything in this condo. You’ll be able to see that we spared no expenses! We optimized all the space by altering the floor plan: we changed the configuration of the kitchen, moved the bathroom walls and added pocket doors wherever possible. This is the only one bedroom condo in Coral Reef Club that has two FULL bathrooms and a separate laundry room.

If this one is booked (because it often gets booked up really quickly) we have another sister property similar to this one, also with many great upgrades. See VRBO property ID # 966116

_________________

GENERAL OVERVIEW

The first thing you will notice upon entering this condo is the amazing views! This is a corner unit which gives the benefit of TWO FULL walls of Windows! The views from our condo are breathtaking and expansive. Since the side windows face the west, you’ll also experience the beautiful sunset right from the living room.

You will be pleasantly surprised by all the 'extras' in our home that you would not normally find in a rental unit. And of course, it goes without saying; you will love the white sand Destin beach that is just outside your door!

____________

LIVING AREA

In our main living area we have two sliding glass doors with AMAZING beach views. Professionally Decorated, we have a very comfortable sofa and two side chairs with reading lamps nearby. The tables are made from reclaimed wood and our artwork is original commissioned art to perfectly set the mood. There is an HDTV with internet capability so you can use easily use your Nextflix or Hulu accounts to watch your favorite programs. We also have digital cable channels and an iPod docking station stereo.

_______

BALCONY

The balcony is likely where you’ll spend a fair amount of time so we made sure we comfy chairs to sit and enjoy your morning coffee, have an evening cocktail or just lounge all day watching the dolphins frolic in the water. Because this is an end unit you can easily see the beautiful sunsets to the west.

____________________________________

FULLY EQUIPPED KITCHEN and DINING AREA

Even if you don’t like to cook, you’ll discover your inner Emeril Lagasse or Julia Child in our dream kitchen. You’ll love cooking using our Calphalon Professional Cookware and convection oven. And even the most dreaded task—doing the dishes—is somewhat enjoyable using our extra-large apron sink. We, of course, have equipped the kitchen with all the necessities such as a dishwasher, toaster, microwave, ice-maker, blender, ample plates, glasses, wine and beer glasses and kitchen utensils. For your convenience, we supply many “extras” such as cleaning products, trash bags, aluminum foil, plastic wrap, sugar, creamer and spices. We even have filtered cold water from our French-door refrigerator.

The Dining area features a small drop-leaf table with 4 dining chairs and the breakfast bar has 2 bar stools.

And if you [unfortunately] have to work while away, we have provided an optimal work environment. You’ll have the best view of the beach while sitting at our built-in desk. There is a dedicated cat-5 line internet connection to rapidly VPN into your work’s servers which minimizes the time you have to spend working. And of course, for all your i-thingys there is also dedicated wifi (the rest of Coral Reef is on a public wifi network).

____________________________________

King Master BEDROOM and Attached Bathroom

The Master suite is professionally decorated with original artwork and environmentally friendly reclaimed wood furnishings. You’ll sleep like never before in our King-size pillow-top bed dressed with Egyptian cotton sheets. The bedroom has 2 night stands, dresser, reading lamps, HDTV and original artwork. The attached Master bathroom has a luxurious tile shower, toilet, sink, hair dryer and large fluffy bath towels.

_________

BUNK AREA

For the children, we have built-in bunk beds in the hallway with built-in drawers. Each bed also has its own TV mounted to the end of the bed. There is a pocket door in the hallway so you can put the children to bed and not disturb them while you are still enjoying the living area, kitchen and bathroom.

Please note: because these bunks are built-in they are shorter than normal bunks. Adults or adult-size children cannot fit in these beds and we do not have a sofa-sleeper (and sorry we do not like people sleeping on our sofa).

_______________

GUEST BATHROOM

The guest bath is off the hallway right near the children’s bunk area. It features a tub/shower combination, toilet, sink, hair dryer and large fluffy bath towels.

________

LAUNDRY

This is the only condo in Coral Reef that has a separate laundry area (it is NOT located in the bathroom). The laundry closet is located in the hallway and features a super-quiet, full-size, front loader washer and dryer. For your convenience, we also supply an iron and full-size ironing board.

_______________________________

About Tom and Christine

We have owned properties in Destin since 1996. We love the area and look forward to retiring here.

Tom and Christine purchased this condo in 2012

Why Tom and Christine chose Emerald Coast-Destin Area

We have had our eye on Coral Reef Club for many years but condos in Coral Reef Club do not come onto the market very often. We tried to purchase 4 separate times over the years and each time we got outbid by other buyers. Finally last year we were able to purchase in here and we could NOT be more excited!

We take great pride in our condos and try to give you the best rental experience. Our guests who stay with us comment on how well equipped our condo is. While it may not be your deciding factor when you are choosing places to rent, you will appreciate it once you get here. Most everything you’ll need during your stay is here! Because we live so far away, we take special care to make sure everything is in perfect condition. It’s imperative that we have the best help there in Destin. We employ a housekeeper who only cleans for a couple of people. We do not use one of those massive cleaning companies who dash in and out of the condo in 15 minutes and call it clean. Our housekeeper takes hours to clean our condo (yes the cleaning fee is $10-$20 more than you’d pay with others but we ensure it’ll be really clean!)

What makes this condo unique

Because Coral Reef Club is located on a dead-end, the beach is quiet and not crowded at all. It's also very centrally located with restaurants and stores within walking distance.

Beautiful property but very loud

  • 2 of 5

This property was very clean, beautiful and updated. The view was amazing. The condo is not insulated and we could hear the family above us the entire time. We contacted the property manager. They reminded them of quiet hours between 9 am to 9 pm. The running up and down the hall started around 6:45 am and lasted until around 10:00 pm. It was really hard to just relax in the room which we would have loved to to.

Owner's Response: Hi Dan. Sorry you had some very bad neighbors while you were staying in our condo. While the property is indeed insulated and there is sound abatement layer this is a wood-frame structure so you can hear the people above if they're being excessively loud. The guests upstairs were reprimanded when you complained and if you had any more issues you really should have called us as the building's quiet times are strictly enforced and those guests should have been evicted if they were causing undue amounts of noise.

very nicely decorated and kept up condo-very clean-everything worked great

  • 4 of 5

nice stay-room very good-regulations increase every year at coral reef-staff there not ugly but not too friendly-water at gulf great and much warmer than at pool(only swam at pool once) have been staying at coral reef since the 80s. the 4:00 check in time seems to waste a whole day.

Wonderful beach vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing time at this beautiful condo with our family. The location of this condo was perfect as it was away from the Destin traffic and crowds yet close enough to several food and shopping areas. The condo was very clean and the beach colors and decor made our stay wonderful. My kids loved the tvs at the bottom of the bunk beds! The owner left us welcome donuts on the first day and a personalized post card which was a nice touch. The condo was easy to get into and had all the instructions we needed if an issue arose. No issues on our trip. The view from the balcony and living area was beautiful. Thanks for sharing your home with our family. We will be back next year!!

THIS WAS AWESOME!

  • 5 of 5

Simply put: Spectacular! We have elevated our search for great properties for the last 3 yrs and this one easily beat the first two. We are a married couple, 50 years old, no kids. We wanted a property that was small to avoid the large crowds waiting for elevators and most importantly, to avoid the overcrowding on the beach. A place to rest and recharge.

With this property literally right next door to Henderson state park and a small bed & breakfast property in between, this is the best kept secret in Destin! Christine was a pleasure to deal with and very accommodating from start to finish. She has spared no expense in this unit. The kitchen is modern, the appliances are new, the cleanliness is second to none, and the service for the couple of minor issues (which were not an inconvenience at all) was over-the-top phenomenal. I personally loved the corner view from the LR and the spacious balcony. The walk-in shower off of the master bedroom felt expensive and made me feel at home. The access to the beach was down 1 flight of steps (or elevator) and within a few steps, you're there. It was never too crowded, even for a July 4th weekend.

I had 3 very small, tiny issues and they were handled with the highest of priorities. First day, noticed the water dispenser on the Fridge was not working. Rae and Susan (property mgrs) jumped on this so fast, it was remarkable. Turned out to be a mechanical issue that would have required a service call. Personally, I don't need my water from a refrigerator door - so it was no big deal. I'm sure it's fixed by now. Second day, the very expensive Calphalon coffee maker broke. They had me a new one within 30 minutes! During that discussion, I made a very simple passing comment that the Master Bed felt like it might be getting to the end of its' life - due to the dips in the mattress. But it was by no means a complaint - just an observation. We went out to eat for lunch and I received a call from Susan saying that they were replacing the box springs and mattress and would be there within the hour! They were!! Can you believe that?!?!?!? So whoever was there after us - the bed is brand new!!!

I cannot say enough good things about this condo, the property, and the people that service it. I highly recommend you book it now - you will not find a better 1 BR unit in Destin with as much as this place has to offer! Just don't book it on the weekend I'm coming back!! If I could give 10 stars, I would!

Wonderful

  • 5 of 5

This is a wonderful condo. Loved the layout. Easy beach access, and a nice pool too.

Everything we needed was there and lots of extras. Coffee maker, blender, pots and pans, knives. I will definitely be staying here next year!

I did not have lots of reasons to communicate with the owners, but the interactions I did have were really nice and friendly. If this is not available I would look at their other property.

Owner's Response: So happy to hear that you enjoyed your stay in our condo. We are a bit biased but we love it too :-) We do equip all of our condos the same so if this one is booked for your dates, don't hesitate to ask about our others. We look forward to having you stay with us again.
