Tops'l The Tides condo description

Our vacation home is an upscale 1200 square foot 2BR/2BA condo in exclusive Tops’l resort. Lay in bed, lounge in the living room, or relax on the extended 250 sqft balacony - all have great views of the pool and gulf.

This condo INCLUDES ALL RESORT AMENITIES - tennis, heated pools, world class gym, free movies, onsite food/beverage service, beautiful gulf view, miniature golf, basketball, shuffleboard, free wifi, and more.

Don't be fooled by other units that DO NOT OFFER AMENITIES and do NOT allow you to buy food/drink at the pool. Also, HALF OF THE TOPS'L UNITS DO NOT FACE THE BEACH. BE SURE TO ASK IF YOU CAN LAY IN BED AND SEE THE OCEAN TO ENSURE YOU GET A TRUE BEACHFRONT UNIT LIKE OURS!!

Gulf-front condo is 1200 square feet and has been professionally decorated in a colorful, Florida theme. The huge balcony has full size table and chairs overlooking two pools and the beach. Both the LR and master BR have access to the balcony. The unit is on the 3rd floor of 15 story building (Tides) and just two flights down is the pool and beach access providing quick access to the pools and beach with no elevator trip required. HD flatscreen TV in each room with DVD player and music system. Free Wifi access in the unit and throughout the property.

The Tides building is on the beautiful, 52-acre Tops's Beach and Racquet Resort and located next door the Sandestin Resort. The property is gated (24 hour security) the unit is near the back, far away from Highway 98 traffic. 24 hour check-in is always available.

Destin is listed in the TOP TEN VACATION SPOTS OF 2010 BY FROMMER'S (one of only two locations in the United States!!). 'some of the most diverse recreation choices along Florida's Gulf coast, and some of the best options for visitors seeking an affordable family vacation...there's really something for everyone...stunning beaches, nature trails ... great restaurants, and a cozy, yet quirky, sense of community.'

Shopping, restaurants and golf are within walking or biking distance. The resort offers many kids activities, beach rentals and more. The property is next to a nature preserve park so walking east on the beach will get you away from crowd quickly. You can use club facilities including a fitness center, racquetball court, indoor-outdoor pool, spa and sauna, putt-putt golf, basketball, shuffle-board and pro shop. Finally, enjoy a 1.4 mile jogging trail on the property and free Tram service when you need to get off the property and shop or eat.

                        The owners describe this property perfectly and the pictures are exactly what you get! The decor is perfect for the beach - bright and cheery - very well done. The condo is very comfortable - roomy - and has everything you need to make your stay enjoyable. And the view is beautiful - and YES you do have the perfect view from the HUGE balcony as well as the master bedroom and the living room! Access to the beach and pools couldn't be easier. The amenities available are plentiful - and we plan to go back and enjoy them "sans a hurricane"! Of all weeks, we picked the very week that Hurricane Isaac was pounding the coast - but fortunately (for us) went a bit west of Destin. While we got plenty of rain and wind - we were very happy enjoying the view from the condo at times and just relaxing. Everything you need is right there. And Tops'l is the perfect "central" location - very close to shopping and restaurants, but tucked away off the main road so you truly get the "resort" feel. If you are planning a trip to the Destin area - this is the place! Great location, great condo, great view, great owners! And no - I'm not related to them. :)

                        The Tides at Tops'l is great place to stay if you are planning on going to Destin. The unit we stayed in was like staying in an upscale apartment with a view of the beach. The location and layout of the property makes it a little more laid back and peaceful than some other places we have stayed in Destin. The grill at the pool was great, and the on-site DVD rentals was a big hit with my daughter. If you are into tennis, they have plenty of courts. In addition to the onsite restaurants and amenities, there is a large variety of restaurants, shops, and just about everything you could want at the beach within a short distance of the property. If you have never eaten at The Donut Hole, you should definitely try it out for breakfast. Overall, this is the type of unit and property we will end up going to again and again.

                        We just spent four nights at this unit over spring break. We've stayed at Tops'l before (on the twelth floor) but this unit has been our favorite. The view is amazing-you can literally lay in bed and see the beach. It's very tastefully decorated. The two king beds was a nice touch, which allowed our three little kids to share one bed with plenty of extra space.

                        We had an opportunity to spend a week time in this beach condo. This is an excellent location and peaceful place. The beach is clean and the amenities are plenty. Two swimming pools provide good time spending with the family. We used the free DVD rentals to keep our 4 yr old son occupied. I definitely recommend this place.

                        This was our first trip to Destin. We usually go to Orange Beach but decided at the last moment to try something different. We were pleased!!!! The property was perfect for our family. The condo is in the best location within the building.....you can sit on the balcony and see the Gulf and both pools but once inside, you never know anyone else is around you. There were five of us and there was plenty of room for us all to spread out without being on top of one another. Also, the master bath was a great hit with walk in shower and garden tub! My son loved the big tub! We will definitely be going back.......
