About Cheryl Bond or James Bond

We Love our place at SouthBay, a lot of good memories have been made here. We love the beach and the Sunset is out of this world. Being on the beach late afternoon is so peaceful then going for a good dinner at Dewey Destin and meeting our friends .Love being with our family at the beach at Southbay for years. We are retired now and love staying a month at a time at the beach. I have been in Real Estate and my husband retired with 35 years with the same company where he traveled five states.

If you are interested in looking to buy please ask me about SouthBay.

Why Cheryl Bond or James Bond chose Destin

So much to do in Destin, and the white Sand on the beach is out of this world. This is one of the best places for children.

Please ask me about some of the places to go all around Destin.

What makes this condo unique

One of the best places to go shopping. You will love Destin Commons, the outlets are just a short drive from our condo.

We love to go to Ross, and I love to go to Baytown, of course Chico's is my best place to shop. Old Time Pottery is one of the best places to enjoy just picking up items to take home. Some of the small shops are my favorite. HARBOR WALK ON THURSDAY NIGHT WITH FIRE WORKS. The New BoChamps on the water.

Condo# 28

  • 5 of 5

What a beautiful condo! We had a wonderful time in Destin, and everything was so convenient from the access to the beach, pool, shopping, restaurants etc. The condo was furnished with everything you would possibly need to live away from home. the owner was wonderful to work with and made our stay so enjoyable. I am looking forward to going back and hope I get the chance to rent this condo or another one from Mrs Bond. Thank you for a vacation with wonderful memories.

Beautiful Condo

  • 5 of 5

What a fun time in Destin!! This condo has been completely updated. The kitchen is fully functional with enough dishes and cookware to comfortably cook any meal. It helped us so much! Never had to call maintenance during our one week stay. The beds are incredibly comfortable. A pleasant walk to the beach. The grounds are beautiful. The owners have taken great care to provide optimum comfort. So convenient to everything. Hope to rent this unit again in the future. Our Huntsville Al crowd had a beautiful time!

Southbay unit #28

  • 5 of 5

This was our 2nd time back to this condo. We tried last year, but a storm came through and pushed us out. This year however, there were no problems. I consider this condo to be in the "heart" of destin. There are grocery stores, surf shops and ice cream shops within walking distance. There are a ton of other things within a 5 -10 minute drive (depends on traffic). The condo was great, could have not asked for better; and the beach was a short walk away. We will for sure be coming back to stay at this place again in the future. Thank you for a great place to stay!

28 at Southbay

  • 5 of 5

Southbay is a great location. People are very friendly. Love this unit. Owner has updated the unit with bathroom remodels and a new kitchen. Master has a tile walk in shower which is great and the second bath has been updated with new tub and tile surround as well. Kitchen in addition to all new cabinets, granite counters, microwave and refrigerator is equipped to accommodate almost any cooking needs. The owner is very accessible and eager to provide a positive experience in their unit. Great restaurants and shopping within walking distance. We look forward to many return visits and would highly recommend this unit for a visit to Destin.
