Destin Rentals of NW FL
100% refund if canceled at least 60 days before arrival date.
Clean condo in convenient location
This condo was clean and the owner was easy to work with. The looks in the outside of the condo was deceiving, at first I thought it would be a "bad area" but it was very quiet and the condo was taken care of. It was a short drive to the ocean and also to many of the best places to eat.
Not perfect, but pretty darn close.
Let me start by saying that a few days after I booked the first customer review became available and I was panicked. Honestly, based on how bad that review was if cancelling with a refund was possible I would have done so. I am glad I didn't because this was a wonderful little condo.
Upon entering the condo there was a faint hint of smoke smell (very faint). Come to find out the person who owns and lives in one of the downstairs condos is a smoker so the smell travels up. But the condo was just as pictured. So cute and VERY clean.
Truly the condo is located in the heart of Destin. You can walk to so many things. If you stay here make sure you walk over to Shake's and have a frozen custard. As for walking to the beach we did not do that. We went to Henderson Beach and it was just a short drive. We had a small child with us and the walk seemed too far.
The kitchen was stocked with plenty of items to make a basic meal. We didn't actually cook anything so I can not attest to the stove or the oven. As for the master bed... it is an older bed but it has no wear on it. Clearly it was stored for some time. It is very firm and very comfortable.
The pools in the community were very clean and we always had them to ourselves. It was quiet and we were never bothered by the near by airport. Actually we were never bothered by any outside noise.
Only complaints. We wish there had been a dryer, but it does not advertise having one and we did it think it was needed. It turns out we needed one. There is a laundry mat on site that is visible from the balcony. So it worked out just fine. The condo is upstairs. I did not realize that and I spent the entire trip trying to convince my 1 year old to walk with "soft feet". All in all if you come out of vacation with those being your only 2 issues you had an amazing stay.
Book this condo with confidence. If you don't mind not being directly on the beach you will love it. Every interaction I had with Courtney was prompt and pleasant. We could not be more pleased. This is a great value for the price and you won't be sorry.
They took my deposit and we got bitten
It was nice but the balcony door would not close well and when it was time for them to refund my deposit i was accused of taking pots and towels witch i had brought my own towels and i brought 3 pots due to recent reviews i had read so they took part of my deposit. Not worth it they still take your money after your stay. My daughters A.D. i woke up with bite marks from bedbugs or something so not worth the stay
This renter gave us a 1 star review because we charged her for taking towels and 2 of our kitchen pots home?? We do an inventory check list before each guest arrives and these items were gone and on top of it she took one of our pots and left her very burnt dirty pot from her home in its place. We have never once had to claim anyones deposit at this rental until this guest!!
We do not have bed bugs....our furniture was just purchased in March of this year. Please read the 5 star review below this one for verification.
Very well kept and close distance to beach. You are literally in the middle of all the fun things to
Rooms were nice and clean. Quiet neighborhood. Only wish bedrooms had more sunlight.
Very dissapointed. Keep shopping this isn't the one.
I'm very disappointed in your unit. This is my 4th time to use VRBO and I should have known better than to go with a Unit based on the owners discription and didn't have personal reviews.
New furnishings? The king bed is at least 12 years old and doesn't even have a mattress protector?!? Yuck!
Sleeps 8 guest but has 3 forks?!?
Kitchen stocked to cook?!? Hardly a dish in here?!? Not even a hot pad!
Sliding glass door comes off the track every time you use it!?!
No over head lights or ceiling fans in bedrooms?!?
Not to mention that the airplanes are right out the door! In the ghetto of Destin!
The pool directly in front of unit is closed?!?
This place leaves a lot to be desired to say the least. It was old and reeked of cig smoke.
I had to go to walmart for bed linens and plugins just to stay here!
Emailed property management right away and of course no reply!
I would like to address this review. This guest was going to be hard to please no matter what.
This condo was completely furnished with everything new in March of this year. The only thing that wasn't brand new was the king mattress (which is only 2 years old from owners guest room). We absolutely put mattress protectors on all our beds and they are washed with each cleaning.
We brought over extra forks for her and the condo was fully stocked with kitchen utensils/pots/pans etc in March.
The condo sleeps 6 and that is how we advertise it.
There are floor lamps in the bedrooms. The way the condos were built - they didn't install fans/ceiling bulbs for some reason (out of our control but we do have floor lamps).
We have had this unit rented steady sense March and not a single guest has complained about the airplanes. It is a few blocks from the PRIVATE Destin airport - not a main airport so not busy at all. Small private plans coming in on occasion.
Ghetto?? You are in the heart of Destin where it's very popular - tons of things to do and restaurants - pretty sure they wouldn't call this area ghetto by any means.
We do not advertise this condo to be a four seasons/ritz carlton - it is a simple condo for families looking to vacation in Destin and to be surrounded by tons to do and entertain their family including beach. We keep it very affordable yet comfortable.
