"This is a GREAT condo right on the beach. The condo itself is very nice, fully equipped with comfy furniture, big TVs in the living room and bedroom, everything you'd need in the kitchen. We didn't do any actual cooking, but it was nice to have a kitchen to do breakfast and sandwiches. It's way up on the 16th floor, which provides a beautiful view!
The building is a little older, but clean and well maintained. There's a little restaurant in the lobby that has very good food and drinks. It's the usual beach cafe fare, pub food with a few seafood things, but I also had a very excellent burger from there one night. The cafe doesn't have a beach view or outside seating, which seems like kind of a missed opportunity, but no matter because they send a roving waitress out to the beach so you can order right from your beach lounger! One of our favorite things was to get takeout dinner and just take it up to our room and eat on our own balcony.
Another great little perk is that in the lobby there is a free DVD rental thing - it works just like a Redbox type deal but it's free with a little card that comes with the room. It had tons of new releases and a few older favorites and kid's movies. A small thing but just a really nice touch!
One really important thing if you want a front-row beach chair: go as soon as you arrive to the umbrella rental hut and reserve for your whole stay. If you really care you might even want to call ahead (look up La Dolce Vita rental co). The condo has beach chairs and an umbrella, but the whole beachfront is occupied by the rental umbrellas so you'd have to set up behind at least 2 rows of people. Of course there are always the couple of people who indecorously bring chairs to set up right in front of the folks who paid for umbrellas, but... what are you gonna do. The rental hut also does kayak and paddle board rentals, parasailing, and other adventurey things to do.
The location is excellent, even if you didn't have a car. Right across the (kind of busy) street is Shakes, a delicious retro-cute frozen custard place, along with some fastfood options (Waffle House, Chick-Fil-A, Wendy's) and a diner. Twice during our week we walked down the beach to the Back Porch, which is about a half mile away but a nice walk along the ocean, and walked back with our frozen drinks.
All in all a really great beach vacation condo! I can't say enough great things about it. We loved it and plan to go back often!"

"We stayed for a week in this condo and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. The condo is clean and very comfortable. We especially like having a love seat and couch as opposed to a couch and chairs so both could lounge in the evenings. The resort itself has great amenities too. We liked the cafe/bar, indoor and outdoor pool, arcade, outdoor bar and hot tub overlooking the ocean. I will say that the balcony does not look directly over the Sundestin beach area so you are not front facing the beach. However, it does overlook the beach to the west and allows for a magnificent sunset view that you can't see on the beach facing condos. Took our 3 year old to the Gulfarium for the dolphin and sealion show and the Pirate ship. I recommend both. This is a great condo at a fair price. We look forward to staying again."

What a wonderful family vacation in a "home away from home"!!
"This was our first time booking a condo, visiting Destin, and taking 4 kids to the beach. Our experience could not have been better!! From my initial emails with the owner, her prompt, polite and friendly replies, our warm greeting by the front desk staff...to the brightest, cutest and roomiest 1 bedroom condo...to a remarkable gulf view and location...made this the perfect location. Sundestin was in a perfect location, near everything we could possibly need. The condo was NOT gulf front but the gulf view and view of the city was AMAZING. The natural light and roominess of the condo fit 4 boys and 2 adults very comfortably. I cooked every meal in a very well equipped kitchen (with a great view !) Our friends stayed in gulf front rooms and truly...OUR condo was roomier, brighter and so much more open. They were envious. THANK YOU, OWNERS. We hope to return next year and would like to rent from you again. Facility comments: indoor pool was great on the cooler nights; workers were always around cleaning and assisting guests. We had a maintenance issue and someone came up within an hour!"
