Diane and Bob Fiore purchased this condo in 2006

Why Diane and Bob Fiore chose Emerald Coast-Destin Area

We vacationed in Destin as children ourselves and then as young marrieds with children of our own. When our youngest was accepted to Florida State, we decided to live where we had always vacationed, quit our jobs in Jacksonville, and moved! We still marvel at the beauty of this special place and are grateful every time we see the emerald blue water of the Gulf of Mexico and walk on the soft white sand.

What makes this condo unique

Since we manage our own vacation home and live about two miles from Beach Resort, we are always available to help our guests realize their dreams for the perfect family getaway. We are very proud of the like-new condition in which we keep our condominium. We are also delighted by the many friends we have met with our rental business and always look forward to welcoming them back. We hope to see you soon, too!

Very Relaxing Stay

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from Destin after a very relaxing two week stay! When we first arrived we noticed how clean the unit looked and smelled. The kitchen had everything we needed and more. Bob and Diane even left us an amazing key lime pie in the fridge. They were so nice to work with from beginning to end. The master bed was very comfortable. Beach service was especially nice, thank you Bob and Diane for allowing us to stay in your condo. Your hospitality was greatly appreciated, we will certainly be back!

Wonderful Stay

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful week at this condo. It was equipped with everything we needed. The view was amazing and the beach service was an added bonus. So nice to be able to show up at the beach and have chairs and an umbrella already waiting. We enjoyed our stay at Beach Resort 505 & will recommend it to friends.

Perfect Condo...

  • 5 of 5

We were back for our 4th stay in Beach Resort 505. We stayed for 2 weeks this time so did a lot of cooking. The kitchen is very well supplied. The bed is still the best we've found while on vacation. The kids love the bunk beds and everyone had a great time. The parking spot is a great bonus. The weather was perfect and the gulf was beautiful....so calm and relaxing!!! Thank you for being such gracious and generous hosts. Ready for a 5th stay!!!!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your kind and generous comments about our top floor Beach Resort condominium. We are always delighted to hear from you and look forward to seeing you return each year. This year I especially enjoyed looking into other activities besides the beach for your young home schooled children. There really are a lot of learning opportunities in our small community. It was so much fun sharing them with you! We look forward to seeing you and your family next time you need a beach break! Our very warmest wishes to you all! Diane and Bob

Awesome Vacation

  • 4 of 5

The week we were here was so relaxing and comfortable. There was plenty of space for our family of 7. Bob and Diane are very caring people and made our stay feel very welcoming. The condo was equipped with all the necessities of home. The parking garage was a nice ammenity when it rained. We all loved the pool. It was never too crowded and kept the kids busy. We enjoyed walking the beach and sidewalks along the street. Sand was soft and cool. The ocean was beautiful and temp of water was nice to play in. Beach chairs were a blessing with umbrella for the little ones. This was our first trip to Destin and we will definately be back. There is so much to do here. The fireworks at the Destin Commons was also nice. Overall we had a very relaxing time. This is a great place to stay and very safe for families. Hope to be back soon!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your kind words, Rosa. Our goal is always to surpass our guests' expectations, and, hopefully, this was true for you. We are delighted you all enjoyed your vacation in our top floor Beach Resort condominium and that the parking space was a big help. It is always fun to explore a community for the first time. It is often a surprise to first time visitors how beautiful the beaches are and how soft and white the sand and warm the water. THe temperature in the gulf was a very pleasant 87 during your visit! It is a paradise! We hope you will think of us next time you need a beach break. We look forward to seeing you again. Warmest Regards, Diane and Bob

Great Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

This was our 3rd stay in this beautiful condo! As usual the condo was very clean when we arrived. We have everything we need there to make our stay enjoyable. Love the covered parking spot that comes with this unit. You never know what kind of weather you will have while on the coast and the covered parking space is so nice. Not every unit has this included as an option. Also, having the beach service included is a nice extra. Just pack a cooler, grab your towel and sunscreen and head to the beach for a delightful day! The key lime pie that Diane and Bob leave for their guests is such a nice welcoming treat as well. Can't wait until next year for my next beach trip. The only thing I don't like about this trip is that it is so far away from home, but it is well worth the long drive!

Excellent Resort

  • 5 of 5

The Beach Resort is an amazing place for families to stay. The pools are perfect! Beach chair rentals come with the unit, which is a huge savings. The condo is extremely clean with all of the necessities of home. The condo is close to shopping and dining. We feel like this is our condo since we have stayed there for at least five years.

This year we left several things in the bathroom and the items were shipped to us!

Thanks for making our stay wonderful at the Beach Resort!
