                We had to peel ourselves off the deck of this fantastic condo and return home:(. The views are amazing with sunrise and sunset from the huge deck off the master bedroom and living areas. We layed in bed in the morning and watched the sunrise and it couldn't have been better. The decor is fabulous and even better than the wonderful pictures. I booked this particular unit because I saw a recliner in the photo that looks like one that my husband spends part of the nights in because he has a bad back. He ended up never needing the recliner because the mattress was perfect for him and he slept great. The grounds are beautiful and I have never seen such meticulous upkeep on beach properties before. We went to all of the surrounding complexes that Renee manages and we were blown away by the knowledge she has of the area and the way she takes a hands-on interest in making sure everything is maintained as a 5 star resort. Plus, she is just a wonderful person and makes sure all the decor is perfect in all the units. She even paints pictures to coordinate with the decor and they are amazing as well! We will definitely be back and the best part was that we could bring our little shi tzu along on the trip. She didn't have to stay at home and we didn't have to pay alot of $$ to have someone watch her. She enjoyed the trip as much as us and was feeling like it was her new home after just a night! It is just a great, friendly, quiet and family oriented area to be at the BR209! Thanks Renee for all you do!

                I come down with my family every year for family fall vacation and we rent two or three unit here. October is the best time in Destin and Beach Retreat is the best place to stay. The weather really could not be any better and the beach setup is just awesome. We always rent all of our units from Renee and Laura and have been really pleased with how helpful they are and how well they do taking care of the properties. Even though my sister and I need pet friendly units you really can't tell there has ever been a pet in there before. My mom is really picky and she LOVES Beach Retreat We have several favorite restaurants, Dewey's on the harbor, 790 and pepitos mexican restaurant. I can not recommend them enough. We also really like the original seablaster dolphin cruise

                My husband and I stayed here with our 21 month old daughter and our chocolate lab mix. We were very disappointed in the lack of cleanliness of this condo. The doors and cabinets were all dirty and grimy looking. The cabinets in the master bathroom are falling apart. When I opened the drawers to put things away one was full of a previous guest's hair and another filled with various pills and vitamins. The bathtub in the guest bath was so dirty I had to scrub it before I could bathe my daughter in there. The floor was so dirty that our feet would be black after walking around for a while. We had to buy Swiffer cloths and clean the floor. It finally looked and felt cleaner after I had Swiffered it 5 times. We also had to go out and buy towels and wash cloths because the ones provided were stained and dirty looking. One of the rules when you bring a pet (which we were very happy to be able to do) is that you have to clean up the pet hair on the floor. I did not have a problem doing this, but the two brooms provided are quite worn out, and the vacuum did not have very good suction and when it was turned on it smelled like stinky dogs. When we informed Laura about the lack of cleanliness she said the cleaning crew would come out to clean. We left for over an hour at the time she said they would be there, but they never came. I told her not to bother at that point because we had pretty much cleaned what needed to be cleaned in order for us to be comfortable. Also, by no fault of the owner, we could hear a lot of noise from the people above us. We could hear their footsteps and everytime they moved a chair or any other piece of furniture (which was often). I did not consider this when renting thinking a condo would be more soundproof than a hotel room, but it certainly was not. Your view from the balcony is beautiful, but it is blocked to the leftt by a palm tree and to the right by an ugly grey building across the street. Laura did assist us when we made a complaint about the dogs in the condo next door. They were barking incessantly and when we asked the owners to quiet them they just laughed. Laura called the owner of that condo who spoke with the people. Generally though I would say that from booking the condo to checkout both Laura and Renee were very business-like but not friendly. There was never a "hope you enjoy your stay," an apology for our issues, or a "hope you'll be our guest again in the future. We won't rent from them again.

                Recommended for: Pet owners.

                Manager response: I know your stay did not go as planned. I am so sorry about that. I did end up going another direction with a new cleaning crew. I was mortified one that when I asked the company that had been paid to clean to come back out they said they would and did not go. Sometimes even a refund at that point is not enough to rectify the damage done. I do sincerely thank you for making me aware of the issues so we could rectify them. While I always do try to make sure our guest have a wonderful personal experience with us I must not have conveyed that to you, for that I am so sorry. While you may not choose to stay with us again we do sincerely hope your next vacation experience is a happy one.

                We looked for a place to take our aging English Bulldog and could not have found a better place. We stayed in Unit 209 and it was very clean and comfortable. Check in was a breeze and our dog (and us) loved sitting on the balcony overlooking the Gulf. We had everything we needed for our stay in the kitchen and our dog loved the tile floors that were througout. The beach and chair service were also fantastic. Just a few notes for those considering the property: Each unit is different. Check individual websites (we went though Renee Clayon and she was fantastic) and you can see what each looks like. Check in is great. They email you instrucitons and the key is in lock box at your unit. Wireless interenet was provided in this unit and most others. Our unit had 3 bedrooms and all had cable with flat screen TV's. The property does sit across the road from the beach, but there is nothing on the other side to obstruct the views and other than cars going by, it doesn't really matter. Within walking distance to Pompano Joe's and Captain Daves (good for drinks and snacks, not so good for dinners though). 5-10 minute drive to everything (Sandestin, Outlet Center, Destin, Harbor Walk, golf courses, etc).
