Recent Scenic Gulf Drive Central West reviews

  • Beatiful home close to beach

    "We stayed in this on our recent vacation it was only my husband and I and our two small children so the house was more than accommodating we had rooms we didn't even use due to this. The house was very nicely decorated the kitchen was very well equipped for anyone that likes to stay in and cook. Bed in Master bedroom was very comfortable please email me the brand I haven't slept in such a comfortable bed in a long time :) The location of the house relative to the beach was walking distance as long as you don't have two small children in tow which is why we ended up driving to the beach every day because a 10min walk would turn into a 30min walk. Cons: The house doesn't have anything beach related if you're going there for the beach, there were no beach chairs, no umbrella, no beach toys this was pretty disappointing because we flew in and we didn't want to spend money buying all these things only to throw them away in one week. We did end up buying an umbrella only but didn't want to waste more money on beach toys for the kids only to throw them away. We have rented every year for the last 5years in Destin and every house we have rented has had everything including umbrella, beach chairs and beach toys. For this reason I can't give the house a 5. The house was pretty perfect for us and we would definitely return if the owner decides to invest on these things."

  • Family trip

    "Beautiful updated condo that is close to the beach. We appreciated that two chairs and an umbrella were available down at the beach for us. There were four adults staying comfortably, but would not suggest any more than that aside from small children. We will definitely keep this condo in mind in the future!"

  • Great Condo And Best Pool In The Area

    "My wife and I traveled to Destin for a wedding in mid September 2014 with our 9 month old. Because this was a wedding for a good friend from college there were lots of our friends staying around the area and we had a chance to compare our place with several others so we were even more impressed with this condo. I read somewhere that Beach Resort was built in 2006. I would believe that and would have guessed a little newer than that even. The building and grounds are very well kept and intelligently laid out. The pool is the feature you’ll remember the most. It was obviously designed by someone with children. There is a beach entry area that goes from zero to a few inches and gradually deepens to 4 or 5 feet over about 50 yards – the pool is massive. Our 9 month old loved crawling around in the shallows. The shadow from the building begins to shade the pool around 3:00. The adult pool section is raised up a few feet from the larger pool and has an infinity edge with a view to the other pool. The beach is about a 5 minute walk and there is a very nice wide sidewalk that runs for miles in either direction. You do cross a 2 lane road, but the drivers in the area are seemingly never in a rush and always willing to follow the posted signs to stop for anyone at a crosswalk. The unit itself is a great design for a single family. There is one long hallway with the master bedroom with an attached bathroom on the right. Next is the laundry and then the bunk room. It’s not so much a room as a nook and a curtain for a door, but it has its own attached bathroom which is surprisingly large. We had a friend stay for a couple nights of our 6 nights and she loved it. Finally the hallway opens up to the kitchen and living room. The kitchen is stocked with everything you’ll need although we wished the knives were a little higher quality. The living room is comfortable and carpeted. We appreciated it with our little one toppling over, but it will probably be ready to be replaced in couple years. The TV is standard def and could use a channel list cheat sheet. Rick was quick and professional to work with. There weren’t any parking tags when we arrived, but within an hour of texting I was able to pick up a new set of tags from a management company’s office around the corner. We are the type of travelers that always want to try something new but we can honestly say we are planning a return trip to Destin and will almost certainly stay at Beach Resort again."

  • Fantastic location and owners!

    "My family of seven went to Destin for the week and we stayed at this location. We had a wonderful time, enjoyed the home, and had everything we needed available. The owners were professional and wonderful to work with. The short walk to the beach was very pleasant and the private beach was beautiful!! A great deal and we left feeling like it was our second home :)"
