Great condo complex

  • 4 of 5

This is a great complex on OK Island. FYI, there is almost no view from this condo (except of lazy river). The trees have grown up a lot since these photos were taken, so do not expect to see much water (except small snipets thru trees). Lazy river goes until late so don't expect to go to bed early! Other reviews are spot on, would be nice to close off that front bedroom-was hard to be quiet so daughter could sleep. Otherwise, great location, so close to beaches and parks, Crab Trap is great for dinner!

Beautiful Property, Great Condo, Almost Perfect

  • 4 of 5

We absolutely loved the resort and the room!

The view of the lazy river and the patio was incredible!!! HUGE patio we all enjoyed both night and day! Easy access to both gulf and bay sides, parking was available at the unit as well as across the street at the beach.

Great kitchen with all the necessary utensils and dishes. Absolutely gorgeous property!

Everything was very clean and the beds were very comfortable.

The only issue we had was the window in the 3rd bedroom that led to the kitchen. We all had different sleep schedules so that was an issue for the person in that bedroom. I don't see a need for that window and almost made that room unusable, at the least uncomfortable. I would suggest that be covered and I would have had no complaints at all.

Lori was great and responded right away and we booked VERY last minute.

She made sure that our reservations were all set up with the resort and stayed in contact until we had everything confirmed even though there was a slight oversight by the resort.

Thank you for making our family getaway so comfortable and memorable.

I would strongly recommend this unit to anyone looking for a family friendly, relaxing OR adventurous vacation!

Great Place

  • 5 of 5

We stayed 8/11-8/16 and I have to say the place was great. The Lazy river was a ton of fun for the kids.

I would love to stay there again next time I am in Destin.

This is a great condo

  • 4 of 5

We spent several nights here in March 2013.

We had 3 adults (4 one night) and 3 children. I loved having a room for the kids and not just bunks in the hallway like so many beach condos. There are 3 bedrooms here although one does have a window through to the kitchen (we hung a sheet over the opening and others have done so before judging by the nails that already existed.)

The kitchen had everything I needed and the appliances are great. The living area was spacious with a great sectional couch that is big and comfy. Our group never felt crowded. Top priority to my husband and myself, the beds were comfortable, especially the master. None of the morning backaches that often come with a strange bed. The master bath is huge, with a jacuzzi tub and separate glass shower.

If I had any complaints on our trip, it had nothing to do with this particular unit. The owners here are doing everything to make your stay comfortable.

We stayed at this condo for 4 nights on 8/15/2010, it was amazing! Everything we needed was supplied in this unit. It was also the perfect location and the lazy river pool was awesome! Beautiful condo, gorgeous furnishings, probably the cleanest condo we've ever stayed in. I would highly recommend to anyone! We just happened to be there when Lynyrd Skynyrd was having the free concert on the beach - this was the perfect location to walk to the show, you can easily walk to The Boardwalk and sit on the deck at one of the restaurants overlooking the beach and ocean. I've been to the Destin area many times and will absolutely return to this condo again in the future! Thanks so much for making our vacation so perfect!
