About Cheryl Willis

Hi,we are a family that has been coming to Destin since our oldest girl was 2 years old! We are a Christian family and we have home schooled our three girls and it has allowed us to make wonderful memories on the beach and we are very excited to share our vacation home with you.

Cheryl Willis purchased this condo in 2014

Why Cheryl Willis chose Emerald Coast-Destin Area

Our property is great due to it is less crowded on the beach because it is a low rise condo. We are on the 4th floor so you can hear the ocean waves. For the adventurous you can take the stairs instead of the elevator for your exercise. The Back porch restaurant is just a short walk on the beach! YEAH, our family loves the BACK PORCH!!!

What makes this condo unique

We fell in love with this unit due to the unique glass on the balcony that lets you see right through to the gorgeous ocean views and all the amenities the condo has to offer! READ OUR REVIEWS, OUR REVIEWS WILL CONFIRM WE ARE A GREAT FAMILY TO RENT FROM!!! We take PRIDE in if there is a problem we will fix it as quick as we can! I COMMUNICATE with guests immediately!

Perfect week at the beach!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed at the Willis condo this past week and our trip was beyond relaxing. The condo was very clean and decorated very nicely. We loved the beach cozy theme and the ocean view was amazing. The kitchen had all the amenities you would need, cable TV was a nice addition to have and the bed in the master bedroom was very comfortable. Anytime I texted her with questions, she responded immediately and was very nice to work with. Also, the included chairs and umbrella made everything so easy. Definitely enjoyed not having to tote those items around in addition to having our cooler and beach bag. We will 100 % go back and hated to leave. You won't regret booking this condo!

Very nice relaxing property and one of the smaller complexes in the area (desirable!)

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for spring break in April. The condo is located directly on the beach with a great direct view of the water. The property was clean and everything was stocked appropriately. The included beach service every day (reserved 2 chairs and umbrella), which is very nice! Here's one of the best things about this complex...they are small enough where you only have one row of beach service chairs on the beach. Some of the larger properties left and right of this property are so large that they have their beach service chairs 3 deep! Not good! This is a great beach to walk or run on and we'd suggest you head towards the East as the beach is a little flatter in that direction. Location is great, lots of restaurants and shops within walking distance. The Back Porch, Merlin's Pizza, and Boshamps Seafood were our faves. I'd stay at the property again for sure! Owners very nice to deal with and great communication!

What a view!

  • 4 of 5

Outstanding view and great location! The best beach and having the chair/umbrella service was so nice! Kids loved the heated pool! Gave 4/5 stars because we felt that it could have been cleaner (doors, ceiling fans could use a good cleaning).

Amazing view! Great family condo!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for a week in March for spring break. We have a family of 5 including one w special needs so I have to be picky about where we stay to make things easy and enjoyable on everyone. Condo is located directly on the beach, AMAZING view! Listening to the waves was just wonderful! The beach is a very short elevator ride and walk across the dune walkway. The included beach service, sand toys, boogie boards, extra chairs made my life easy! It was so nice to just walk up to the room to get something, make lunch to bring down, get more beverages ;). Lots of sleeping space, don't over pack as storage is a tad limited (you don't need all that stuff anyway!).

Nice upgraded kitchen, Destin is pricey so it's great to be able to make your own breakfast and lunch at least! Small washer and dryer inside unit was very nice to have as well.

The beach is beautiful and not crowded at all! Very nice heated pool, warm enough to be very comfortable when it got a bit chilly out.

Location was great, lots of restaurants and shops. Grocery store down the street. Back Porch, Dewey Destin, Elmo's were our faves.

Owners very nice to deal with and great communication!

My son and I just finished a week stay at the Willis condo and all i can say is that the whole experience was wonderful and amazing. The condo was clean, beautifully decorated and just as the pictures reveal. The beach was breathtaking. The ocean was warm and sand looked like snow. We should know because we came from Canada.The pool was so warm and the hot tub terrific. Fabulous restaurants were within walking distance. Listening to the waves from the condo deck every morning and evening was the icing on the cake. Thank you Willis family for this great vacation condo. We will definetly be back.
