A beautiful setting for our family and friends.

  • 5 of 5

Our family stayed at this condo along with 2 other families. We had a great time and had plenty of room for all 3 families. The deck is huge and leads right onto the beautiful sugar white beach. It was really nice being on a private beach that was right outside the back door! The condo itself is huge with kitchens on two floors. This made it very nice for multiple families and also made it easy and fun for everyone to eat on the deck during one of our days on the beach. The back of condo, facing the beach, is almost all glass so we had a beautiful view the entire time. White sand and emerald green water make a beautiful backdrop to the living areas that we spent time in. There was no shortage of cable televisions, dvd/vcr, and wireless internet for those who wanted it when we weren't on the beach. The private side entrance was great for bring down the kids beach toys and rafts without going through the house. The condo is close to great restaurants and shopping as well. We had a great time and we will be back.

Great Place!

  • 5 of 5

This place is awesome! Our family has been coming to Florida for many years and this townhouse was great, from the location, to the beach area, and the owner Mrs. Jean is wonderful and cares that you are having good time or for any concerns you might have. Plenty of space for our large family and we had from ages 4 months to age 80. There is stairs but you have two living spaces with 2 kitchens. Can't really say enough about this place! You unload right at the door and walk right off the deck to the beach. All levels have decks and you don't need to bring anything for the beach, it has all kinds of chairs, toys, umbrellas and a canopy. Fully stocked kitchens and two washer and dryers to keep up with laundry. The location is great also, very close to shopping and great places to eat. The beach area is not crowded and the water was just beautiful. Watched dolphins every morning from our deck. We have been looking for a place we could return to and we have definitely found it!

Fun and Relaxation at Green Reef in Destin

  • 5 of 5

Unit 16 at Green Reef is an extremely well maintained 3 level condo and is without a doubt the best property my family and I have stayed in when compared to previous trips to Panama City Beach and Gulf Shores.

Although a slightly older home, each level was clean and very comfortable. Amenities included washer and dryer on 2 levels, 2 well stocked kitchens ( to include spices in the main kitchen), TV's in every bedroom and hide-a -beds with excellent mattresses. Games and beach equipment were plentiful, and the large deck was a huge asset to the property. We spent most of our time at the beach (<100 feet away) and the deck offered us an opportunity to relax and eat out of doors in comfort. Excellent location with easy access to shopping malls, popular restaurants and other outdoor activities.

Owner was responsive to any request and made us feel right at home. Unlike some property managers I have encountered, she had a customer service focus and cared about her renters.

Overall, one of the most enjoyable vacations we have had and we would return.

Perfect location. Great for our 2 families for 7 nights.

  • 5 of 5

I will definitely recommend Green Reef to friends wanting to visit Destin. It was perfect for our group because we had a baby, toddler, pre-schooler, and 2 mother-in-laws with us and it was conveniently located ON the beach and very close to other activities that don't involve the beach. We can't wait to come back!

Excellent View and Location

  • 4 of 5

The view and location were excellent. The available kids toys and grill were great too. We loved having the beach mostly to ourselves due to the private nature. The only thing keeping this from 5 stars was the beds/mattresses (my wife had to sleep on the couch because the mattress was so uncomfortable).

Owner's Response: I have put a very nice new pillow top queen mattress in this room. If I had known anyone was uncomfortable I would have replaced it the next day, but I was sent an email while these guests were staying that said "we are having a great time and would it be possible to stay an additional night." I write in my check-in information to every guest, if there is anything that needs attention or would make your stay more comfortable, call, text or email and it will be taken care of immediately. People pay a lot of money and come a long way and I will do my very best to make your stay well worth the money and the trip.

Everything you would need in a beach house

  • 5 of 5

Plenty of room for our entire family. Stepping right off the deck to the beach is something most people in Destin never get to do! Having top of the line beach chairs and all the beach toys you would need are extras you just don't get everywhere. Will be back for sure.
