Nice accommodations and location!

  • 4 of 5

Close to beach and right next to the pool! Spacious living area and well stocked pool toys and beach equipment locker.

The only negatives were guest rooms quite cramped and what is stated as a queen bed was truly a full size. Towels were very worn and tattered and linens were stained which we noticed while stripping the beds.

Wonderful Getaway

  • 5 of 5

My husband & I absolutely loved this beach home! We took our 1.5 yr old baby girl & we had a blast. The home is very nice, updated & clean. We had a very short walk to the beach & everything was there if we needed it. The home had a great location for shopping, eating out and was close if you needed basic every day items. The owner & property manager was wonderful & will attend to anything you need promply. We definitely hope to go back to our home away from home.

This property was really great. The town home was a good size for us, the walk to the beach was easy, and the pool was wonderful! Patrick and Rita were quick to respond to any questions we had. Abe, the "beach service guy", was super helpful and answered any questions we had about setting up our beach chairs and umbrellas. The only thing I would recommend other renters bring is extra towels - we had 6 adults and a 1 year old so we washed towels almost every day. Overall this property was wonderful and we would gladly stay here again!

Beautiful home and perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

I'm the type of person to look at every detail before booking a place for vacation. Southbay by the gulf #93 checked out our every necessity. Very close to the beach, about a 3 minute walk, the pool is right outside your front door. The home itself is very spacious even for our party of 8. I checked out many places in this area and #93 seemed to be the most updated and modern home. I absolutely loved it! We had so much fun and this home contributed a lot to our vacation success. Everything you need is right here, from kitchen utensils to beach toys. Restaurants and Harbor Village is only a 7 minute drive and that is only because the traffic can be bad. So much to do here! Will definetly try to book this home again when we come back to Destin.
