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!

Awesome Vacation!!

  • 5 of 5

We came to the beach resort for a family vacation. We have 2 younger children. When we walked in, we immediately noticed the space and high ceilings! It seemed huge to us and it was nice to have for the week. The pool is large, which our boys loved and we also enjoyed time in the hot tub! It is a very short walk to the beach, which we went to every day. Bob and Diane were great hosts and answered every question we had about the area and things to do. We loved that they were local! The Key Lime Pie was a nice treat to have during the week. We loved everything about this place and would recommend it highly to anyone! If you are looking for an awesome place to stay and awesome people to deal with, then this is your place!

This was a perfect condo and vacation spot. The bed was so comfortable, kitchen well stocked, wonderful pool and covered parking spot. Even though I did meet the owners they were very accommodating and wanted to assure I had an awesome relaxing vacation which I did. I hope to return! Thank you for a great week in your condo.

Owner's Response: Thank you, Christy! We enjoyed meeting you and welcoming you to Destin and our Beach Resort condominium home. One of our priorities when we vacation is a good nights sleep, so we invest in great beds. Thank you for noticing! We are delighted you had a fun and relaxing vacation. We can't wait to welcome you back!! There is always something to do at the beach including relaxing under an umbrella and listening to the waves, watching the birds soar overhead, and taking slow, deep breaths of air with the fresh scent of salt. Come back soon! All warmest regards from Bob and Diane P. S. We have a picnic planned for the beach later!

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
