Great Vacation Condo and Surroundings

  • 5 of 5

I reviewed the day after we returned home but maybe it didn't show up. Let see if I can remember what I said. Loved the condo. It was clean, nicely furnished, and well situated. You walk out the door and turn right and the pool is right there. Turn to the left and pass the 6 condos and walk over a ramp and the Gulf is right there. Beach is cleaned early every morning and the beach sand is great. The rooms and bathrooms are small but adequate and the beds great. The kitchen is well stocked but bring your own sharp knifes. And bring kleenex if you are like me and need a box for every thing. There was enough of everything but there were just the 2 of us with a couple visiting for 2 days. I like to cook so brought my own spices and everything I needed to cook with. Plenty of stores nearby and things for the kids to do. We didn't grill or use any of the beach things that were provided but they are available. Love the back patio with a table and plenty of chairs. Sunny during the morning and in shade in the evening. Will undoubtedly go back with more family.

Great vacation spot with really responsive owners!

  • 5 of 5

The place is in an absolutely fantastic location. The unit is literally right next to the pool. The tennis courts are right in front. The beach is maybe a 2 minute walk (don't even have to cross a road).

The house was in fantastic condition. It has both gas and charcoal grills available. All of the rooms were nice and the beds were comfortable.

Overall very satisfied with this unit and would rent it again if it wasn't already booked for the next 3 months!

Wonderful, peaceful place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

First time staying in Destin, first time using VRBO and both exceeded expectations, so much to do and the property was gorgeous and as pictured! We hope to set this up again and it was very peaceful, steps from the beach and no crowds or anything, we only saw people at a distance it was great as its more relaxing. If you are looking at this place, please know the pics are exactly as it looks now, very clean and grill all that is included as stated. We spent very little on food as we were able to do everything in house and could spend more money on activities. Great place to stay dont think twice. Destin by far the best area to stay in if you want to really just enjoy the beach and be able to go have fun with family, pier is nearby for fishing as well as plenty of charters to do fishing and other things, tons of good restaurants, and I saved a ton of money by booking here early, will definitely do it again.

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.

Owner's Response: Sarah, good to hear you enjoyed our town homes location and the beach chairs & umbrellas we provide. I am also glad we had a chance to talk and send you the "Rooms To Go" receipt that shows that it is a Queen size bed in one of the guest bedrooms and not a full size that you thought. I also spoke with my housekeeping service and she found the two towels that were starting to fray and replaced them. Thank you for becoming part of out beach town home family and we hope to have you back for your next beach trip. Thank you, Patrick and Rita
