Destin condo with Ocean View!!!

VRBO Bear stayed here

Jun 23, 2011

This Beach Manor condo was exactly what I needed! The view from the balcony was the first thing I noticed upon entering the unit and I spent hours out there sitting, reading and just enjoying the view! Larry, the property owner is incredibly knowledgeable about the area and was able to give World War II history lessons about the area right off his balcony. The unit itself had gotten a few upgrades and features a huge flat screen TV. The seating on the balcony provided the adult bears in my group the opportunity to sit outside and listen to the waves while still watching the TV through the glass door. The large dining room table allowed us to enjoy great breakfasts and dinners. The condo provided beach access within a 2 minute walk from the elevator to beach. This came in handy when lunch time rolled around as you could be back down to the beach after making a sandwich in a matter of minutes! The beach at Tops’l is absolutely beautiful and not terribly crowded providing just the right amount of relaxation. In addition to the beach and the view, this place had great amenities such as putt-putt, a basketball hoop and tennis courts. I recommend this Tops’l Beach Manor for your next family vacation.

Reviewer Comments:

Another great fall break at Beach Manor. As always, Gibson is great. Loved the unit and the view was spectacular. My only complaint was how hot the master was compared to the rest of the unit. Need more AC in that room. But on the whole, a great sized unit. We had 6 guests and never felt crowded.

Owner's Response: We're so happy you all loved the unit and your time here! Unfortunately the duct work in the building cannot be changed to allow for additional air flow into any one room. Most units, especially directly on the beach, have one room that differs in temperature more so than others. Keeping the drapes closed does help quite a bit, especially in the warm afternoon hours. We hope it didn't inconvenience you all too much. Thanks for the review, we appreciate it!

Beach Manor @ Tops'l: a great fall beach destination

Reviewer Comments:

Beach Manor @ Tops'l is a great location with amenities including a fitness room, pool, dry sauna and spa. Unit 1206 faces east, affording spectacular sunrise views of uncrowded white beaches. The unit has a well-stocked kitchen, comfortable living room seating, and is adequate for four adult guests. It does need, at the very least, a deep cleaning. The bedroom carpets and living room area rug are stained. Dirt and dust have collected along the edges and corners of the bedrooms. Baseboards and door facings, particularly around the doorknobs, are dirty. Walls are scraped and chipped in several places. The unit is showing its age and use. We would rent this unit again, however, with a few minor cosmetic/cleaning improvements. The rental company is professional, friendly, and efficient; the app is easy to use. We felt the fall special weekly rate is fair. We've stayed in several different units and buildings in Tops'l. The resort is convenient to restaurants and shops, some within walking distance. It is adjacent to a state park, providing hiking and biking opportunities. It's a great fall beach destination.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your honest and open review, it is appreciated. The fall is indeed the time when we deep clean our units; something that's impossible to do during peak season. This unis is inline for a deep cleaning October 2017. We are glad you all enjoyed Beach Manor 1206, the Tops'l Resort and the Emerald Coast! Next time you visit, be sure to mention our repeat guest discount.

It's our second year back at Miramar Beach. Our family had a great time! We were there for the 4th of July week. We will definitely be going back! Wish we could've stayed longer!

Owner's Response: Theresa, next year book 2 weeks! Who can reject that opportunity?!?! But, for real, we loved having you down and would absolutely enjoy you returning to us again soon. Shoot us an email or call so we can get you all squared away, and we'll make sure to get your repeat guest discount in there for you - more shopping/food money - whoohoo!

Reviewer Comments:

Beach Manor 1206 is a very nice property with great views of a private preserve, state park, and the associated uncrowded beaches. I travel with kitchen gear, but didn't need to use much of it because the kitchen was well-equipped. Internet was pretty lousy, dropping us unless we booted right by the router. Everything else was very nice. We especially appreciated the call from the Gibson folks letting us know that our condo was ready early. Great service!

Owner's Response: We're happy to hear y'all had a wonderful time. Unfortunately with the influx of so many people to the Emerald Coast, the wifi signals do have a hard time keeping up every now and again. Hopefully relaxation was the top order and y'all got plenty of it. Thanks for the 5 star review, we appreciate it!

Reviewer Comments:

Overall great room, clean and nicely stocked kitchen. Looking out our view was to the left, blocked frontal view to see panoramic view of entire beach. On site building fitness center was closed indefinitely, which was one of the main deciding factors in booking our stay here. We were given the notice about 1 week prior to our arrival, so no way to make any changes without forfeiting our payment.

Owner's Response: We apologize for the temporary closing/remodeling of the Beach Manor fitness center. We were only recently notified by Beach Manor Association as well. Unfortunately, we are at the mercy of the association and would absolutely prefer to have all amenities open for our guests. We're happy that you enjoyed the unit and would be available to help you pick out a unit with different views next time you'd like to visit.
