    "First trip to Destin and really enjoyed the condo. Traveled with my two teenage sons and we all were very comfortable with the condo and the amenities. Everything that we needed and great location. Close to the beach and centrally located for Destin activities. Would definitely stay here again."

  • Fun Family Getaway

    "We immensely enjoyed our stay at Unit 67 in Southbay. The unit itself was very comfortable and had all the kitchen items, pillows and bedding needed. We had 2 adults, a 17 year old, 8 and 6 year old and the bed types worked great for us. All the beds were comfortable. The owners were very easy to work with and readily available to answer questions. This unit backs up to the pool which was great after a long day at the beach the kids could jump right in for more swimming. The beach is very close maybe 2 minutes walk and that's while toting cooler, rafts etc. The rental includes 1 Umbrella and 2 chairs setup at the beach which was a great plus as we flew in and didn't have any chairs with us. The patio has a storage closet that has a charcoal grill and maybe a few leftover rafts from other renters (we left a couple there and there were some when we arrived), and there is an air hose at the pool so you can blow up any floats too! The complex has a lake that is full of turtles and you can fish too. Parking is in front of the unit so it's super easy to load and unload. We will be back (hopefully soon!) A great choice for family fun is the Harborwalk which is about 2.5 miles away. Of course the restaurants there are pricey because it's a tourist area and you are paying for the views which are spectacular, but there are free parades, concerts, and fireworks on different nights seasonally, and they have a small midway with carnival games for the little ones and zip lines for the teens (not free of course). You can also walk along the harbor for about a mile or so and see all the boats and if you are lucky like us dolphins. Also here on the docks is Destin Snorkel which has Sunset dolphin cruises and dolphin/snorkel cruises. We did both and had a great time. AJ's is a good choice for dinner with the kids or drinks, food and dancing later in the evening, they always have great bands and their peel and eat shrimp was way larger than at other restaurants we went to. McGuires is a Destin favorite with dollar bills stapled all over walls and ceilings. The food is good pub fare salads, burgers steaks etc and it is always busy. Go early or be prepared for a bit of a wait (if you don't care about AC go upstairs to get a table faster)"

  • Rental

    "I have been coming to this area for a lot of years. I have stayed at the big condo's on the beach, which comes with a BIG PRICE. At some point you realize that there has to be something more reasonable with the same access to the beach. This is your spot! I have been to this particular condo on several occasions now. Each time I find that this condo is clean and well maintained. While not right on the beach, it's just a little farther walk then my mailbox at home, it's that close! It has a beach/home like décor, which I have found on par with the big condo's, very pleasing and comfortable. Everything is here but at a more reasonable price! I have been in other rentals , but this one is my favorite. Everything is but a short walk away, beach, restaurants , amusement parks, stores the lot. I will certainly return to this condo in the future."
