What makes this condo unique


Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi Bob,

I have tried to post a review on the listing site and they sent me a message that it did not meet the guidelines??? I gave you a great review and I can't see why it wasn't accepted. This is what I submitted:

"We had a wonderfully relaxing time in your condo last week. Sundestin 304 was the perfect condo for us. Very clean, tastefully decorated, perfect location. The weather was great, beach was great, no crowds and no oil!!! Would definitely recommend Sundestin 304 looking forward to another stay very soon!!

Thanks so much!!

Tim & Johnna"

Great place to stay in Destin!

  • 5 of 5

First of all I am a terrible procrastinator that's why I am just writing my review in December for a May trip.

The condo was awesome. Couldn't have asked for a cleaner condo unit. Great view!!

Bob, the owner was always quick to respond with my many questions.

Definitely planning another trip to Destin and will try to stay in this condo.

Many Improvements Needed but clean & on beach

  • 3 of 5


#1 The owner Bob was a little pushy and made me feel like I would miss out on this unit if I didn't book at the very moment we spoke. I told him I was already stressed about booking a unit unscene and him telling me "now or never" didn't help. I was booking for off peak dates as well.

#2 I specifically asked him prior to the trip via text if he had a Keurig coffee maker or a regular coffee maker and I was told "yes, both". I packed my kcups and was ready to enjoy a keurig coffee on the balcony, and upon arrival saw only a regular coffee pot. So now I had to go buy new coffee and filters. Normally I would confirm details of what his response of "yes, both" meant, but Bob made it seem he was too busy to talk w/his other job.

#3 This owner does not allow renters to leave commonly used items between guests, i.e., coffee filters, olive or cooking oil, salt/pepper, more than 2 dish towels, dish scrubber (so we can keep your pots and pans clean Bob), etc. I highly recommend changing this policy. We understand the liability factor, perhaps allowing coffee filters and other safe to share items at the very least.

#4 This particular unit has a very long hallway (wasted space), popcorn ceiling, the two bathrooms are connected in VERY close quarters. If both people are using the toilet, they can hold hands. Fine for one couple, but may be too close for comfort if multiple couples.

#5 The pullout couch is the 2nd bed which is in the makeshift living room. The room has a kitchen, next to kitchen table, then the big red couch divides and makes the tiny living room. If the pullout couch is made, the living room disappears. Another recommendation includes utilizing the kitchen bar with stools, and rearranging the living room to open it up better. The table on the other side of the kitchen table is wasted table space due to its location. Recommend hanging the TVs on the wall as well, and remove the TV Stand in bedroom to give more room in master bedroom.

#6 Please replace the rusted out chairs on balcony. We had our 5 month old in his bumbo seat on the balcony chair and when we grab the sides of the chairs, they are very rusty and can cut us.

#7 No Laundry in Unit nor baske


#1 This unit was very clean which was our priority. Thank you Bob for having a clean tub and kitchen.

#2 Beautiful view! Period. Sit over the small pool and you can watch your loved ones from the balcony...and can see them on the beach.

Owner's Response: Well I am not sure what to say about this review. The following is my attempt without going tit for tat with each comment. First, I apologize if I seemed pushy to you. I did not mean to be. However if I have multiple people emailing about the same dates for stay I feel you would want me and it would be appropriate to mention it. As far as leaving items behind, the management company that I use operates the resort and it is their policy about not leaving items behind. The housekeeping crews are instructed to discard any foodstuff they find. I must state that I support the policy as it errors on the side of safety. It appears that the design and finish of the unit is not of this renters liking due to the tone of their writing and the exaggerations that were made. I am pleased to say many others have stayed in SunDestin 304 and loved it, as indicated by the other reviews. I guess you can't please all the people all the time. As far as the outdoor furniture goes, it is scheduled to be replaced this fall as I noted this need on my last visit. Rust is certainly a problem in the salt air environment. Respectfully, Bob Strain

Will be booking this unit again!

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect room for our family. The view was perfect. The room itself was very clean and had plenty of space for our family of 3. Being on the 3rd floor, we only used the elevator when we were loading and unloading. We just used the stairs to get the beach and back. Being above the pool was not an issue at all. We visited the end of May and will definitely be booking this room again next summer. Wouldn't have it any other way.

Wonderful Unit

  • 5 of 5

This is the perfect unit! Beautifully decorated and I loved that it was on the 3rd floor because the ride on the elevator was short and sweet. Trash chute was convenient because it was only a few doors down and there is a washer/dryer a short distance away as well. Beautiful view of the beach and access to the beach is hassle-free. King size bed was extremely comfortable. Only negative thing, which I really don't consider a negative, is that being right above the pool meant it was also close to the Café downstairs which hosted Karaoke on Friday and Saturday, but it was over at 10 pm so it really didn't disturb our sleep, but was a little loud. SunDestin is close to EVERYTHING in Destin and this resort offers free movie rentals and service on the beach of drinks and food from the Café. This one was saved in my favorites list and we will definitely be back! The owner was very easy to work with as well and responded timely to all of our inquiries.

We stayed the month of February 2016 . Most delightful weather sunny every day which can be appreciated when you are from the Midwest!! 55 to 70 all month. Best location and view in the whole resort if u dont want to wait for elevators just take the short two flights down the stairs and you are right at the pool.! Got to see some dolfins while having our morning coffee on the deck condo was very clean and kitchen was stocked with every utensil and dish needed for cooking we are already booked for next year Can't wait!!!
