About the property

2 Bedroom, 2 Bathrooms, Sleeps 7, This Suite Is The Best Of The Best

Voted "Destin's Best Vacation Resort Condominium Community!" It's a drop dead gorgeous Southern-hospitality-laden Resort which makes it a must return destination.

Located in the heart of Destin, this private resort community is situated right on the world-famous sugar white-sand beaches - where every grain is washed by the shimmering emerald waters of the Gulf of Mexico.

As you pass through the guarded entry, one of our security guards will direct you to the front check-in lobby. As you enter the grounds, you will quickly realize that you have just left the hustle and bustle of every day life and it's distractions and have just entered a tropical oasis, where you can be more relaxed, more secure and more able to thoroughly enjoy your beach stay.

Entering the lobby, you will be warmly greeted by one or more of our friendly onsite staff, they are there 24-hours a day, 365 days a year. In addition, you are also welcome to contact Nikki and I directly with any directions, question, comments and/or concerns.

Our staff will provide you with a parking pass, direct you to our many luggage carts, and to the 5 available elevators, which will take you to our recently remodeled Suite 215, also lovingly called the "Dancing Dolphins Suite". Which by the way was just awarded the highest possible Premium ratings in the resort

Upon entering Suite 215, you'll immediately see why we received this award, as you will quickly discover that nearly every inch of this large open floor plan has been exquisitely updated and/or professionally staged all to enhance your enjoyment and your beach experience. From the second you walk in the front door, you will see that you have one of the best views in the entire resort. No matter where you sit or where you stand in the suite, you will get a breathtaking panoramic view of the snow white beach and the pounding surf of the Gulf of Mexico. You can spend hours enjoying all of it without every leaving your suite.

But it even gets better; from family room, master bedroom and/or from the large spacious balcony, you're also overlooking 3 of the 4 resorts pools, the dolphin fountain and waterfall, all of which is surrounded by beautiful tropical landscaping.

Inside or out, you can literally spend hours soaking in the incredible beach views, be totally entertained by people and wild life watching, and if you have swimming children of age, they will be right under your nose.

Unlike other units, suite 215 has 3 Smart HDTV's which provides guest with instant access to the Internet and Apps like: VUDU, yahoo news, yahoo finance, yahoo screen, yahoo sports, iHeart Radio, Amazon Instant Video, Netflix, Facebook, Twitter, Yahoo! Weather, huluPlus, YouTube, flickr, HOTLIST. To get to the menu, simply click the "V" on the TV remote. Guest of suite 215 will also be pleased to find a wide range of complimentary library of movies, accessible in the VUDU app under the MyVUDU tab. Viewing other available Apps may require you to log into you own account to enjoy them, and to log out when finished. Parental discretion is always advised.

The unit has tile floors throughout, new bathroom vanities, tiled showers, new bathroom fixtures, walk in shower in guest bath with frameless shower door, guest bedroom with his and her closets, queen bed and a twin sized bunk bed*.

Suite 215 is also the perfect place for Snowbirds to escape the cold winter months, as well! We are the Top Rated Place for Snowbirds to nest. The average daily highs in the 60's are ideal for outdoor activities and just having fun! Like the regular season, we offer great monthly rates. NOTE: Snowbirds please go to the "Rate" tab, then locate the "Rate Period" column, find your date period for the actual minimum number of days required. Disregard any other minimum days found and/or any automatically calculated dates/rates by computer system. Please email, call or text us if you have questions or comments.

Whether planning a "once-in-a-lifetime" honeymoon with your loved one or a well-deserved anniversary or romantic getaway, our staff of "relaxation" specialists have plenty of experience in the little touches that can add so much to your romantic escape! Our island paradise is the perfect location for your special moments and a truly unforgettable escape.

In addition to the view, everyone of our guest has enjoyed the fact that Suite 215 is not stuck at one end of the resort or the other. Suite 215 is located right smack dab in the middle of all the resort's complimentary and bountiful, on and off the beach, amenities and activities.

Volley ball, Frisbee, Sandcastles are but a few of the many awesome beach activities.

Besides the many beach activities, you will find, 4 crystal clear swimming pools (one of which is a heated indoor/outdoor pool), a Hot tub, a Beach Tiki Bar where you can order Frozen Pina Coladas, Margaritas, Bushwackers and Virgin Daiquiris for the kids, Ice cold beer, and your favorite mixed drink. Stop by and ask your friendly bartender to mix you a refreshing drink to take to the beach or sit by the pool. Then just relax and enjoy "Your own little paradise.", Chan's Market Café and Deli (offering coffee, pastries, breakfast and lunch specials like; fresh salads, deli sandwiches, grilled hamburgers and hot dogs, pizzas made to order specials), you can melt that off at the spa with sauna or steam room or you can work it off in 1 of 2 fitness centers, the tennis courts, basketball, shuffle board, and/or the arcade/game center.

You'll find plenty of parking, many of the parking spaces are covered, which is great, cause you get here you really don't even need to leave our tropicla resort.

However, if you desire, we are still within walking or a very short driving distance of many of Destin's most popular tourist attractions, family and fine dining, exciting nightlife, fishing, golf, movies, theater, boating and unique shopping experiences. We know all about southern hospitality. Don't forget to ask our front desk staff for our valuable book of coupons. In some cases, our staff may even have time to make reservation for you.

Unlike others, you will find 215 has a fully equipped, fully updated kitchen: So whether you like to cook or not, you'll find everything you need to prepare a four-course meal, or heat up last night’s leftovers from any of the tantalizing area restaurants. Got a great steak, fresh caught fish, juicy shrimp or lobster? No worry, you will also have full use of the resort gas and charcoal grills, just a few steps away.

A conference center and banquet/meeting rooms make this an ideal choice for business, beachside weddings or family gatherings. Other meeting rooms are also on the property.

You will be living large, right smack dab on the beach; a beach where every grain of shimmering white sand has been spotlessly washed by iridescent sparkling waters of the Gulf of Mexico, all crowned by the forever beautiful skies of Destin.

While there are some other very nice and well appointed suites which also have excellent views, you will find that Suite 215 "Dancing with Dolphins" is a clear winner and as we pointed out was just awarded the highest rating at the resort. So, if you’re someone that's truly looking for the ultimate beach and resort experience, 215 is a perfect match for you and a must return destination.

You are welcome to contact us via VRBO, email, text or by phone.

About Property Owner and/or Manager

Nikki and I (a Vietnam War Veteran) are Georgia Real Estate Agents with many years of experience. Knowing how important it would be to our guests, and wanting to make it a must return destination. Nikki and I spent over a year driving up and down the coast searching for the perfect combination of community, amenities, a floor plan with an oversized balcony that could be accessed, not only from the family room, but the master suite, as well, that had incredible and breathtaking views. Those efforts finally led us to the best Beach Resort Community anywhere on the Gulf Coast and the best Suite in the community "Suite 215", lovingly called "Dancing Dolphins". So, now your dream vacation can begin.

Property Owner and/or Manager purchased this condo in 2015

Why Property Owner and/or Manager chose Emerald Coast-Destin Area

Resort vacationing is always the best, and this is - the best of the best. You, your family, your friends will be so impressed, you will all return over and over again.

What makes this condo unique

Not only can you access your ocean view balcony from the main living area, you can from the master bedroom, as well, making every waking and sleeping moment pretty special. And while there is not a balcony in the guest bedroom, the view of Pelican Lake and the skyline are pretty spectacular.

Notes:
Destin is the perfect place to escape the cold winter months, as well! Average daily highs in the 60's are ideal for outdoor activities and just having fun! We offer great monthly rates and a great activities schedule! Destin is known as the "World's Luckiest Fishing Village", which attributes to the largest and most elaborately equipped fishing fleet in the State of Florida, with docks at the Destin Harbor. And, one of the main reasons for being so "Lucky" may be the fact, the 100 Fathom curve draws closer to Destin than any other spot in Florida providing the speediest deep-water access on the Gulf. However, these days the fishing may play backseat to the myriad of world-class golf courses in and around Destin and Panama City, Beach. Many of the big names in golf have created golf courses within 1 hour of Destin, FL including Freddy Couples, Tom Fazio, Greg Norman and Jack Nicklaus.

Good location, beautiful suite

  • 4 of 5

The Dancing Dolphins suite was beautifully decorated. Very clean. The beds were comfortable and it was easy to feel at home. The owners have done an exceptional job furnishing the unit. One thing we wish we would've known before we got there is that basic items such as a roll of paper towels, coffee filters, sugar, salt, pepper, Kleenex, etc. are not furnished. This isn't a big deal as there is a grocery store just across the road but after a long day of travel having to go back out again after unloading a vehicle was somewhat of a bummer. Every VRBO I've stayed in prior has provided a few basics to get you through a day or so. The unit is located on the second floor facing east. You can see the beach from the balcony when standing and the pool area is below, which can get a bit loud. The Resort itself is okay. Much of the time though it felt like we were in a hotel with a wide variety of occupants, some good, some not so. The pool is pretty small considering the the number of units and during high season I would imagine you would run out of chairs very quickly. The fitness center is really good; there is a sauna and a steam room. In general the entire Resort is nicely taken care of, front desk staff were very nice and helpful. All in all it's a nice place to stay in Destin.

Very clean

  • 5 of 5

The condo was beautiful and clean. The only complaint I have is there are no chairs at the beach that belong to Pelican Beach. You have to pay to rent beach chairs and the chairs are taken up at 5:00 each day. Also, some people set up in front of you when you rent chairs. My suggestion would be for beach chairs to be left in the condo for use for the renters. Very nice visit. Will plan to go again.

Everything you need for a wonderful vacation!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay, and the owners were very helpful in accommodating our travel arrangements. The condo has been updated beautifully, and was fully stocked with everything you could possibly need. The resort was well maintained, and I loved the fact that there was a shop and restaurant on-site. Will be back!!

AMAZING!!

  • 5 of 5

The Dancing Dolphins Suite (215) was extremely clean and beautiful. The view from the balcony is great as you overlook a pool but can also see the beach.

The location was very convenient, lots to do within a short drive or Uber trip away. I will definitely book this condo again! Thank you Rod and Nikki for such an amazing experience.

Simply fantastic!

  • 5 of 5

Outstanding property with excellent amenities and proximity to the beach, as you are right there on it! Great pools, small store with restaurant that was a lifesaver for forgotten items and a quick easy lunch to get us right back to the beach, which was excellent and staffed with friendly beach service. Loved this unit as it was recently upgraded (very nice), and had great views of pool AND beach. I was reluctant at first to leave a review, as I selfishly would like this to be my hidden gem, but Rod and Nikki (owners) deserve all the business they can get with their top notch care to detail. Thank you for the wonderful stay, will DEFINITELY be back to see you next year!
