Perfect vacation

  • 5 of 5

We've been traveling to Destin for years and stayed at many places. This was the best by far. The property has a true resort feel with manicured grounds and spacious pool areas. The condo was very clean and pleasantly decorated. The location was easy to access from the very busy highway 98. The owner was accommodating and quick to respond. We'll be back!

Amazing property and views

  • 5 of 5

The condominum was lovely, beautiful view of the gulf. Perfect size for the 3 of us. This was our first extended stay in Destin and we were not disappointed. The condominium was nicely decorated, comfortable, and the location to the beach was just steps away. I would like to recommend eating at the Back Porch. We liked it so much that we ate there twice. When I had a questions the property owners responded immediately. I would like to recommend this property and I plan on returning.
