1003 st. croix is a well appointed condo with a wonderful front balcony view of the gulf.....back balcony...overlooks main road! But, both had wonderful outdoor furniture!

Kitchen was almost perfect! Appliances were very nice.(we, like others never were able to figure out the K coffee maker....and I own two! But, the other coffee maker was

Nice so, no overall problem as I had gone prepared! ) Wonderful assortment of cookwear and dinner wear. We prepared our Thanksgiving dinner . Surely, didn't expect we'd be able to do that!

The only negative is the lighting. It could use some

Lamps with higher wattages! Fine in the sunlight of day but by dusk,

To dim to read in any room! Nice mattresses...great tv's....

We highly recommend.....

very impressed with compass resorts. Mary

October is the perfect time

  • 5 of 5

We had 4 adults, 2 teenagers and a 7 year old and this place was a great fit for us. Master bedroom and bathroom were the best of course. Closet space is almost limitless. Unless you're staying for a month you'll have plenty of room. Balcony access from every room was great. The boys had their own room, own beds and own flatscreen tv. All rooms have very nice TVs. Washer and Dryer are modern and worked like a charm. The microwave had gone out but they were very quick to bring in a replacement for the week. The keurig did not work. We let them know and i am sure a new one is in place now. There was a regular coffee maker as well and we used that every day. The grounds are very secure. Access to the pool and beach are a quick elevator ride away. The parking garage was awesome. I say October is perfect because there were not a lot of people there. We basically had the pool and jacuzzi to ourselves. no wait for the elevator. no problem finding a spot on the beach. The pool was very cold but the ocean wasn't and we spent most of the time on the beach. Otherwise, i will reitterate we really liked the condo. the view from the balcony is beautiful. i am ready to go back right now. A few other things...beds very comfortable (i actually had to get my son a new mattress when we returned because he got spoiled). Wifi was a little slow as other reviewers have said but it wasn't awful. quiet...did not hear any other people above or below us. Carts in the parking garage so taking our bags up and down was a breeze. Location is nice. Walmart 3 minutes away, all restaurants and fun activities of Destin are within 10 minutes. We will be back! Thank you

Best balcony on the property. The pool and beach were perfect and clean. The unit itself was clean, comfortable and had everything we needed. The wifi was slow to none but other than that everything was perfect!
