Guestbook comments from the manager

My family enjoyed our stay. Elegance on the Gulf looked better than the photos and I was not disappointed. It was beautiful and spacey. Jilenna and her staff were very responsive and pleasant leading up to my travel dates and during. This was a very pleasant experience. I would definitely stay at one of their properties again.

Relaxing, spacious house and easy beach access

Wonderful house with tons of space for multiple families if needed. Easy access to the beach and nearby restaurants and shops. We had a great stay!

Good location but amenities fall short

  • 3 of 5

We had a nice stay and I can break down my review in pros and cons. First, pros are the proximity to the beach and not having to cross a busy road to get to the beach access via the resort. Also, the house was clean and the numerous bedrooms were great for a larger group. There is plenty of space for everyone to feel comfortable. Cons include the appliances need updating. The dishwasher in particular did not work well and was fairly worthless at cleaning. Another con is that they advertise you get resort access to a pool, beach, “and more.” There is nothing more. We specifically expected access to a fitness center and even had an email stating that it was included and it was in the book information about the house but those were both not accurate. There is a fitness center but you are not allowed to use it. The beach and pool are the only 2 amenities from the resort you are allowed to use so there is nothing “more.”

Owner's Response: Hi Laura, Thank you for your review of Elegance on the Gulf. We are so happy you enjoyed the house! We sincerely apologize about the dishwasher complications. We are currently awaiting delivery of a brand new dishwasher that will be installed very soon. Since your stay, we have recently added new flooring throughout the house and all new bedroom furniture and bedding. We have also updated many appliances, including the washing machine. New pictures of the updates will be available very soon. At this time, per Crescent Resort, guests can not access the fitness room but we are doing what we can to change that. We are so glad you enjoyed the cleanliness, proximity to the beach and space our beautiful unit has to offer. We hope to make you next visit to Destin even better! Thank you!

Loved everything about this home and the resort next door. Really enjoyed the screened porches and the ocean breeze.

I could not have imagined a more perfect place for Spring Break! For my group of 18, it was phenomenal and had the best location. I didn't realize it would be so close to the beach, so that was a very welcomed surprise. It it right across the street from the the outlet mall, which was perfect for the rainy days we had! It was very well kept, and came with anything needed for cooking (pots, pans, etc.), beach chairs, and many more. Plus, everything is labeled so that made it very easy when looking for certain things! The owners were very accommodating, even giving us their favorite oyster restaurants for when we were craving them! I would definitely recommend this fabulous house to anyone.

Awesome, Spacious Home!

  • 5 of 5

Elegance on the Gulf is a spacious home with plenty of room on the main level to dine and relax. The location is incredible; only a 30-second walk to the beach, with plenty of shops and restaurants within easy walking distance. The house was very clean and is well maintained. The owners were really great, even providing a nice Christmas tree for us to help celebrate Christmas in Florida for us and our family from North Dakota and Wisconsin. Great escape from reality!

New Year's Treat

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful New Years holiday with friends. Roomy and comfortable. Room for more friends or family next time. Access to great pool, fitness center and beach. Being so close to the outlet mall made a rainy day fun.

Car: necessary

Located in the Florida Panhandle, the City of Destin has a rich historical heritage dating back to American Indian inhabitants as early as the seventh century A.D. Spanish explorers surveyed Florida in 1538. Don Francisco Tapia was commissioned to survey the Florida coast and in 1693, drew the first known map of East Pass and its shores.

Destin traces its immediate history to a fisherman, Captain Leonard Destin, who moved here from New London, Connecticut, and settled in Northwest Florida in about 1845. Captain Destin pioneered the fishing industry and Destin has maintained this heritage to the present.

Destin is known as the 'World's Luckiest Fishing Village.' The city houses the largest and most elaborately equipped fishing fleet in the State of Florida. In addition to fishing, recreational opportunities include golf, tennis and water sports, including diving and snorkeling. The 100 Fathom curve draws closer to Destin than any other spot in Florida providing the speediest deep-water access on the Gulf.
