Beautiful, comfortable and clean Condo!

  • 5 of 5

Really enjoyed staying in Unit 305 and plan to book again. It's on a perfect level, not to high and not to low. Especially nice having chairs and umbrella on the beach that came with the unit. The pool is well maintained, which we used daily while staying the week. The owner is was very easy to deal with and accommodating. The kitchen has everything you needed to cook. TVs in every room! Also, the balcony is nice and big with a big table to have meals on. The decorations in the condo were nicely done as well. Also, like the resort is located in the middle of Destin. Almost forgot, the beaches are to die for and you look out at it from Den and master bedroom! This unit is a must book!

Great Destin Destination!

  • 5 of 5

This was our young family's (6 & 3 year old) first time to visit Destin and we were very pleased with our choice to rent this condo! The property is recently renovated, very clean, very nicely decorated, and well equipped. The property location is about as close of a walk to Destin's gorgeous beaches as you can get and the large, well maintained pool is a great option as well. A big plus is that the rental also includes prepaid daily beach umbrella and chair service. Oh, and the view from the balcony is incredible! The owner was very responsive and the process of renting was stress free. Overall, it was a great vacation experience for our family and we would definitely consider renting this condo again in the future.

A Perfect 10

  • 5 of 5

This condo is just as lovely as described and pictured. Lush, comfortable bedding. Clean, spacious, and has a beautiful view of pool and Gulf. Near good restaurants and shopping. Owner very responsive and accommodating. I've rented many oceanfront condos and this by far the best.

Great choice for this young family

  • 5 of 5

As our first family vacation with a 3 year old and a 1 1/2 year old- this condo was a perfect choice! It is very nicely decorated, yet there was a ton of floor space for the kids to play with their trucks and tractors! The master closet is so big, it could have housed our Pack-n-Play. The balcony is perfect-a great view of the pool and ocean. It has solid glass panels (rather than posts) which were great for safety. The only hiccup for us was that the dining table did not accommodate our portable hook-on high chair.

The BIG perk was the beach service!!! It was SO nice to have chairs and an umbrella waiting for us. This is a MUST-HAVE!!! My husband and I would love to rent this unit again next year!

Fantastic family vacation

  • 5 of 5

We love this condo! It has plenty of room for our family of four, great furnishings, really comfy beds, beautiful views, and the beach service is such a perk! The owner is great to work with and very helpful in making sure everything is just right from booking thru our stay. The location is amazing with The Track and Big Kahuna across the street - two must dos for families! And we love that we can walk down the beach to The Back Porch for lunch. We've stayed at this property at least 10 times and rented from this owner for the last 8. This unit is our new favorite! We will be back for fall break!

The Best Condo Experience in Destin

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at this exceptional condo was during Spring Break, which has it's own set of issues. We won't be returning to Destin during this time of year. Although, this had nothing to do with our condo; it was beautiful, clean and accommodated my gang, 3 adults, 2 teenage boys perfectly. The closet space was more than adequate. The view of the beach is perfect and if you can time it right, your beach chairs and umbrella (which are complimentary with your stay) will be directly in front of the balcony. The pool is directly below and so is the walkway to the beach. The condo is well stocked, with the exception of storage containers for left over food and wine glasses. Otherwise, there is everything you could need, plenty of knives, cooking pans and utensils (even chip clips and kitchen shears). The pocket doors are an upgrade that I haven't found in most condos in this area. It may not seem like a big deal unless you've stayed in a a condo that you have to do yoga moves to get into and out of the bathrooms. These bathrooms are very nice and the Master is extremely roomy.

The condo building is in a fantastic location. It is close to grocery stores, Target, Walmart etc. The Back Porch, a popular beach bar and grill is only a couple of buildings away and an easy walk on the beach or sidewalk. It's just close enough, yet far enough away...

Eli, the young man who takes care of chair, umbrella, kayak and paddle board rental is very nice and accommodating, as well. Although, they only rent the kayaks by the hour, he worked out a nice deal for us to have one for four hours. It was one of the highlights of the trip for both the kids and me.

In closing, I don't want to forget to mention Barry and Sherry, who from our very first correspondence were prompt, professional and extremely nice to work with. Their follow through was impeccable on all levels, from providing information, updates on payment status and responding to my messages when letting them know we had arrived and departed. Our experience in the condo and with them was the best I've ever had when dealing with VRBO.
