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!

The condo was very nice! The beach accessibility is perfect. Cheryl is very accommodating and communicates well. The only complaint was the wifi connection. Wonderful condo and we would definitely come back!

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!
