Welcome to Surfside. This beautiful, seventh floor condominium was renovated in 2010. In one of Destin's most prized buildings, this beach home features full-glass exterior walls, yielding an unobstructed view from every room. The spacious, private balcony overlooks the pool and hot tubs and is perfect for sunbathing, eating and relaxing.
Features include free wireless internet access, exercise room and sports deck. Rent includes beach set-up of two chairs and one umbrella.
There is a new restaurant in the building! Do not feel like cooking or going out? No problem, just drop in to 'Rick's Crab Trap' for a family-friendly meal that will not bust your budget. Room delivery is also available. During peak season, there is also a pool cabana serving drinks and light fare. Catering for private parties is also available.
Access to the sugar-white sand is provided by a direct walk-over, connecting the pool deck to the beach. Destin's beaches have been proclaimed as the most beautiful in the world!
This was my first time to stay in Destin and my friend and I needed a two bedroom unit for the July 4th week for a "girl's trip Communication to arrange rental was very pleasant and efficient with quick response to any further questions/needs. Pricing was far better than anything else we considered.
The unit is very modern with upgraded decor and furnishings. Multi flat screen tv's, dvr and even multi phamplets/coupons/books on the local area stocked for your review and use. On site restaurant which was good, a nail salon and you can even get a massage without leaving the property. Pool area is nice and well kept with a large bathroom complete with showers and sauna. There's an outside bar as well which is great to have lunch.
This unit is neat and clean and I am ocd so more often times than not I am usually disappointed with accomodations. This unit IS very clean - as I would keep my own home and yes, I know the places to look that housekeeping usually overlooks in the cleaning process. It's clean! Fully stocked/modern kitchen with everything you need from a Kurig to every kitchen utensil and dish you might need during your stay. Bedding was clean and comfy, air conditioning adequate as was water pressure/showers etc. Linens provided, plenty of towels/washcloths and closet sizes were great as well. Washer and dryer in the unit although we did not need it. Over sized deck with multi doors for access with nice sized table and plenty of chairs, lounge chair. Each unit has a gulf view and you can enjoy the view from any room in this unit.
The lobby is clean, staff helpful and onsite security personnel. Covered parking, well kept grounds. Outside grill and tables on the property. Entrances are all within enclosed hallways as well which has more of a "home" feeling than a hotel/motel. We really liked the location, it is off the "main" streets of Destin so you do not get all of the traffic noise around the clock nor the "party crowd" pests. Location is convenient to all restaurants/attractions/shopping and you get to avoid the major traffic jams and crowds. Beach is easily accessed and you can walk to many restaurants/shopping close by.
I would highly recommend this unit and this would certainly be my "go to" anytime I am in the Destin area. I've already referred others for renting this unit as well. Don't hesitate to rent this unit. Your stay will be enjoyable as ours was.
We have spent our last 3 summer vacations here waking up in time to watch the sun rise, the dolphins play and the beach come to life from our fantastic view on the patio....perfect peace after working hard all year and wanting a stress free vacation! Plenty of space for our group of 6, equipped kitchen for added convenience and/or the Crab Shack (in the bldg) serves excellent food. Plus, you are within a mile or so of the famous designer outlet stores, so no traffic for you to get tied up in! =-). And something I appreciate, the laundry in the bath, with all the wet suits and sand that my family brings back, it's a definite bonus for us! =-) Super nice, clean, and modern with friendly greeters/desk service. Highly recommend this condo and location as a great place to stay.. See you next year!!
Some go just for the beach, some go to get away and relax in a nice condo. Everyone will have different expectations and what we cared about may not matter to some. That being said I will start by saying that who we dealt with was a friend of the owner who manages the property and she was pleasant and informative up until we arrived.When we arrived like a lot of vacationers we immediately tried to hop online to map everything out, to our surprise the internet was non existent. After about 2 days of leaving messages and being transferred from person to person along with emailing the "owner" they finally sent out a tech to fix the internet. Which worked for 1 day afterwards.
I emailed the "owner" letting her know about the issue along with these other issues, the condo was extremely dusty, there were layers, and I mean LAYERS of dust lined along the bottom of the headboards right behind the pillow side of the mattresses, dust all over the stereo, tvs, and covering the vents. The bathroom sink was clogged, and the guest dvd player didn't work. (ATT towers were down the entire stay so along with no internet in the condo we also had no internet over our cell service)I never received a response from the "owner" about these concerns, instead, 2 ladies and a young boy randomly showed up at the condo. Upon opening the door they had already unlocked the key lock box as if they were just going to barge right in(completely unacceptable!!!!!!) after opening the door they frantically tried to close the lock box, were laughing and said, "we brought you some pillows and we only have a pink pillow case" then ran off. And yes, these pillows were nothing to brag home about. Shortly after the plumber showed up, again unannounced to us, and pulled about 5 years of hair out of our bathroom sink.
Other than that the condo does provide a great view of the beach and pool. The elevators are horrible. The staff even encouraged using the service elevator which is for employees only. The water went from burning to freezing which was not good for our young kids. Along with the email to the "owner" I did mention that maybe it was just a bad cleaning crew, and maybe that is the case, however I feel that when your guests are having issues then appropriate communication or a little compensation for their troubles(ones that couldn't be fixed) should suffice. For the money guests pay, we should see it reflected in the efforts of the owners to make sure we have an enjoyable stay.
We had a wonderful week at this condo. #1 the owners are wonderful to work with to make the "reservation information" easy. #2 Great view. # 3 Close to restaurants and stores. Thanks to the owners for the use of room 703!
Great stay at Surfside 703! Very clean and comfortable. Loved the views from every room! Definitely looking forward to booking this unit again next year!
Our stay in 703 was fabulous. It had everything we needed, and it had a great view of the ocean. Super clean and well maintained, absolutely no problems. The owner was wonderful to work with. I would absolutely recommend this unit (and the owner!) to anyone wishing to visit Destin. I hope to return next year and will definitely request this unit again.
Thanks so much for everything!
