Very beautiful condo
"We stayed here the first week of September. We have stayed at Edgewater many times and have always enjoyed it, but this condo was really top notch. If I were lucky enough to have a condo of my own on the beach I would decorate it just like this. It is elegant yet understated. The beds were very comfortable, the kitchen fully equipped, the bathrooms large and functional. The view was beautiful every day. It is very close to shopping and restaurants. There is a grocery store right across the street. We appreciated the beach service too. The small touches like the bath soap and extra TP for the first night was great. We usually come to Destin in the late summer every year. We will try to reserve this unit again next year."

"Pros: First of all, the view was amazing and the location was perfect! You are steps from the beach, surrounded by entertainment and have your own personal pool. The house is also conveniently located right by several grocery stores. It was equipped with mostly everything we needed, except for sharp knives for cooking. It was a spacious home with plenty of room for all 13 of us. You can tell they have done some upgrades, looks like a new kitchen sink and stove/oven, some paint and some of the bathrooms were done, among other things. The pool was kept clean and there was plenty of outside seating for us.
Cons: While they have done some upgrades, there are still items that need attention. The carpet on the second floor and some of the mattresses have seen better days. We spotted four or five large roaches throughout our stay. The outside of the home could use a little picking up. There were weeds out by the pool and the house itself needs a serious power washing. The grill is probably at the point of replacement. We were a little surprised when we pulled up because the house because it didn't look as appealing as its surrounding neighbors.. Which is why I assume that's the only picture they haven't posted on here. It's a bad first impression considering the house itself was actually pretty nice.
Pay close attention to nails on the stairs that lead down to the ocean. Some stick up and can be painful to step on. There aren't too many but it's worth noting. Our neighboring house had a hammer and was fixing the same thing on their home.
Overall, we had a nice stay. The view, pool and easy access to the ocean are what made me give the property a 4. The house doesn't need a lot but with a little more care and renovations it could be a 5. For the price we paid, I would only return if some of some of the cons were addressed."
