My family has been staying in This condo for several years.. The new owners did not skip a beat. Everything was great as usual. I love the fact we have our own beach chairs. This condo looks great and is well taken care of. My two fur babies love it to. Thanks Lisa for sharing your home and making us feel at home.

The photos depict the property perfectly. We, two couples, were very comfortable. The original owners, as well as the new owners, were very helpful and answered all our questions in a timely matter. I would recommend the property to family and friends and hope to stay again next time. Had great meals at Mcguires, Graffiti's, and Tommy Bahama's. Enjoyed the malls!

Started well, ended badly.
Started well, ended badly.
We thought our week here was going to be a pleasant memory of a relaxing time in a nice beachside condo, but it ended on a very negative note. Because we were on a 3-week long vacation, we had a lot of things with us, for cooking, food, beach paraphernalia, games, DVDs, luggage, 2 dogs & all their stuff, etc. & we knew our leaving by 9 am was going to be hectic. SO, we prepared till midnight the night before, sweeping, packing, cleaning, got up at 6 am to bring everything into the hallway to load the carts to take down to the car. However, there were no carts available, so it took 15-20 (or more) trips down to get everything out. At 9, the cleaning lady came so I asked for a few more minutes, but in a couple of minutes, another woman came in & very rudely & hatefully said we 'better hurry up and get out of here!'. It went steadily downhill from there, with loud complaints from her about sand on the floor (we HAD swept several times that morning), & this woman barking at me to go & empty the trash as if I were her minion, & ordering me to 'unlock this door right now!' as I went into the bathroom to get the wastebasket. I had washed all the towels & mats, but I hadn’t scrubbed the refrigerator or emptied all the trash that morning YET & that WAS our fault, but it would have gotten done before 9 am if we hadn't been taking down our belongings in such small increments BECAUSE THERE WERE NOT ENOUGH CARTS for everyone who needed one to check out by 9 am! But the real issue was when I later found out she had been rude & hateful TO MY TEENAGE GRANDDAUGHTER AS WELL! Needless to say, I was livid. I feel we have been taken advantage of in a big way. PLUS, because they said there was “extra” cleaning, they charged us an EXTRA amount. NEVER, EVER has anyone complained about our maintenance of their property & we have stayed in nicer places than this all over the country. We certainly understand the process of keeping it cleaned & maintained while we are there & leaving it that way as well as getting out in a timely manner---we get it, and we do that. However, SOMETIMES, there are extenuating circumstances & everything doesn't work out perfectly. As decent human beings, we try our best to allow for those instances in life in a GRACIOUS MANNER—no grace here. Yes, they are well-covered in their contract, down to mirror smears and sand on the BALCONY (really). I fully expect to see the owner respond & probably trash us, but this is what happened. NEVER AGAIN.

We had a wonderful time in this lovely condo! The view was beautiful. We especially enjoyed the sound system with the speakers on the balcony and the 4 beach chairs with 2 umbrellas was a perk! This condo was so convenient to shopping and great restaurants! We walked most nights from our condo to eat dinner. We have a 1 yr old and he loved taking a stroll in the stroller and taking in all the sights! The condo had a closet stocked with beach toys which was also a nice touch. We would highly recommend staying in 409. We can't wait to go back next year!

This condo was wonderful ! Beautifully decorated and extremely clean.....all the comforts of home. We loved the view from the balcony! A great touch was the 4 beach chairs and 2 umbrellas....just grab your beach bag, and go. My sisters and myself come to Destin every May....this is by far, one of the best condos we have ever stay at! Thanks, Sherri and Jim

We have stayed in this unit numerous times and plan to continue when our vacations are in Destin. I can't imagine being able to find a better place. Jim & Sherry go out of there way to ensure everything exceeds your vacation expectations. We've already booked our next vacation here.

We just spent 2 wonderful weeks at this condo. Condo is very well maintained . There was absolutely nothing we expected that was not provided. We have vacationed several times in Destin and plan on doing so again next year. This prpperty is close to shopping outlets, shopping centers and many good restaurants. We have been to several beaches around the world and the beaches here are as fine as and better than most we have seen elsewhere. We would highly recomend this property to our friends.

Had a wonderful time in Destin, Condo was very nice. The bunk room is for small children. We had a 20 year old and it was too small, but managed anyway. Food was great at all the locations we visited, the brochures helped that were in the condo. Jim and Sherry were very helpful. There were extra chairs and floats and toys for the ocean which was Great! Having the four chairs every day was very nice. Ben was our beach attendant and he was very nice. Can't wait until we can return. There was no coffee filters in the condo, those would be nice to have for guest since we did not know what coffee maker was inside.

Owner response: Glad to receive the review. The bunk room was designed for children, but it does have a full size twin mattress on the bottom bunk and a 6 foot person can sit on the bottom mattress and not hit the upper bunk. We do have two large king suites for adults. We were the first to offer two sets of beach service for our guest and it seems to have been a hit. I am sure others in the complex will follow our lead next year. Glad our guest had a great visit and hope to have them back in the future.

Owner response: This year we wanted to provide more value to our rental program and added an extra set of beach service for our guest. They seem to appreciate this value and we appreciate our guest. We were the first to add this service at this complex. We hope others will do the same for their guest.
