About the property

Townhome, 3 Bedrooms + Sleeper Sofa, 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps up to 8)

Southbay by the Gulf and Unit #98 is one of Destin's hidden gems. Families have been enjoying this vacation getaway for years. We have just completed renovations on Unit #98 with fresh paint throughout, new floors on the main level, new carpet upstairs and a great new kitchen! Amenities include private beach, two pools (one heated) and two tennis courts. Scroll down to the link just below owners information for a video grand tour of the condo!

Walk out the back sliding glass door, turn right and in around 100 steps or 90 seconds (watch the video! - "From couch to coast in 90 seconds from Unit 98" on YouTube) you'll sink your feet into the sugar white sand of the Emerald Coast and Southbay's private Beach. No road to cross and no elevators to take...just step on down to the water and begin enjoying your vacation! As it has for my family this delightful property will beckon you and your family to return year after year.

This wonderful condo offers 3 bedrooms (accommodating up to 8 people). A fully equipped and modern kitchen for a home away from home vacation experience. Relaxing living area contains a new pull out sleeper sofa for additional sleeping. The back patio has a table, four chairs and an umbrella to enjoy your coffee in the morning or whenever you decide to take a break to relax. There is a charcoal grill right next to the patio for your grilling needs. High speed internet access is also available inside and outside.

Unit #98 is conveniently located within walking distance to fabulous shopping, top rated dining, movie theater, water park, Put-Put Golfing, Go-Cart rides and many more great activities. We invite you to share your vacation memories with us here at Southbay! Check the calendar online, call or email today for availability.

Best unit in southbay..... an absolutely fabulous time

  • 5 of 5

We were just re-booking this unit for this year and I wanted to write about what a wonderful time we have had here. The unit is, in our opinion, the very best one in Southbay. It is the closest one to the boardwalk that takes you to the beach and gazebo. We use the gazebo almost everynight and have cocktails while listening to the ocean. It was not crowded at all, and it was nice to have a hose right outside the patio to clean off all of our beach stuff. It also has parking spots right in front of the front door, so no long walk or elevator....very convenient.

The unit is very clean and well furnished. The location is wonderful and we have found some great restaurants to go to, including some amazing happy hour oyster specials. The kitchen is great also, and we eat in most nights. There are three great seafood stores within a mile or so, and we get fresh seafood everyday and bring a little charcoal grill to cook on. We eat right out on the patio with a beautiful view.

It rained on occation while we were there, but we are very close to the movie theater and shopping, so no problem. It is also great how they have two beds in each room. There were 5 of us and it was very comfortable. We really like having two separate bathrooms upstairs as we all got pretty sandy.

We can't wait till our next time staying there. Thank you also to the owners for being so helpful with the booking. They have made it a pleasure to go back each year!

We enjoyed staying in the unit that was 25 yards from the beach. The unit was clean and worked great for our family. Owner's were very good to work with us on a short notice vacation. Thanks again for a great vacation. Greg & Debbie
