Property description

The Empress Unit 601 embodies all that it implies: luxurious furnishings, spectacular accessories, balconies with sweeping Gulf AND Lake views -- in short, 2600 sq ft of breathtaking elegance. This unit is truly one of the largest, most beautiful and best located condos in Destin. JUST FRESHLY RENOVATED. This amazing 3BR/3BA 6th floor unit with a spacious floor plan offers unparalleled views of the Gulf of Mexico, lake, and golf course from virtually anywhere in the Condo. Unobstructed views to the east and west from the Gulf front balcony provide gorgeous sunrise for that morning coffee and spectacular sunsets as you sip on an evening cocktail. Please note that this condo is rented out on a 7-night basis (Sat-Sat).

Creamy earth tones welcome you to the lap of luxury, where each bedroom has the utmost privacy and the best views in town. This open floor plan condo is tiled with large luxurious travertine throughout the foyer, living room, bathrooms and kitchen. There is a full wet bar in the living room, complete with beautiful wine, martini, beer and margarita glasses for your enjoyment. There is a sound system throughout the unit, including speakers on the balcony! The high-end dining table seats 8-10 comfortably. There is also a cozy sitting area adjacent to the dining room with a gas fireplace for those cool winter evenings. The Kitchen and Bathrooms have just been renovated with granite countertops, stainless steel appliances (including a double over and french door refrigerator), vessel sinks, heated Jacuzzi and rainfall shower-head!

3BR: This unit has TWO gorgeous master bedrooms with king beds - each with its own private spa like bath and balcony overlooking the Gulf. A third bedroom has two double beds and a huge window with a stunning view of the lake. An additional sleeper sofa is located in the living room.

Large tiled balconies facing BOTH the front and rear with ample comfortable seating provide a place for sunbathing, reading, dining or just enjoying the view. There is an electric grill on the lakeside balcony for those evening barbecues and a trash chute so you don’t have to leave the condo!

This spectacular condo is professionally decorated and has all the comforts of home, including a state of the art kitchen, laundry, four flat screen televisions with DVD players, and high speed wifi internet. The main TV also has a HD converter. Ipod docking cables allow you to immerse the entire unit with your musical taste. We also have movies for the whole family and games for your children. You will not find a more luxurious and spacious condo than this one!

The Empress is a private gated property with only 44 units, semi-private elevators, private reserved parking, its own pool, and a beautifully renovated new lobby. Stroll along the beach boardwalk. Enjoy nearby tennis, golf , cycling- and check out The Whale's Tail or our favorite Pompano's Joe, where you can play a pick-up game of volleyball or enjoy breakfast, lunch or dinner within feet of the Gulf. The Silver Sands Outlet Mall is less than a five minute drive to the east; Destin Commons is four miles to the west. Baytowne Wharf (in Sandestin) is only 10 minutes away. Baytowne Wharf, designed to look like a quaint village with winding water, offers restaurants, shops, free outdoor concerts, lots of activities for children and a nightlife for adults. Nearby Grand Boulevard has some of the best dining in the region.

Manager info

About: We are a family of five and we absolutely LOVE Destin. We have a second condo in the adjacent Majestic Sun. Needless to say we visit regularly and the area has become part of our family's vacation tradition.

Why Empress:
We cherish this property and enjoy using it as much as possible. We are grateful to have found one of the most beautiful and spacious properties in Destin... and most importantly, with spectacular and sweeping ocean views! We furnish and maintain it to the highest standard so that our guests can have a truly memorable experience! This wont be the cheapest unit but you wont be disappointed. Our nearby management team will ensure that your stay is well looked after. We are blessed to have many repeat visitors :)

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
Our condo is centrally located to many major attractions in the Destin area. We are minutes away from world class shopping, restaurants, family attractions, and of course, one of America's top beaches just steps away from the condo. The property is secure, the region is upscale and the unit is very unique!
