Danny and Vanessa have been married 27 years, and it has always been their dream to own a property on the beach like this one. Danny is employed at Horseshoe Casino in Southern IN, and Vanessa works for Jefferson County Public Schools. They have two children, Alex and Gordon. Alex graduated from the University of Kentucky in 2008, and Gordon is currently a student at the University of Louisville. Some of our favorite local spots: Silver Sands Outlet Malls, McGuires Irish Pub, John Quigley's Sports Bar (best cheeseburgers in Destin!), and The Back Porch.
The Owner purchased this condo in 2009
This condo was awesome! Mr. Daniel was so nice & helpful! Very enjoyable vacation!
This is a GREAT condo right on the beach. The condo itself is very nice, fully equipped with comfy furniture, big TVs in the living room and bedroom, everything you'd need in the kitchen. We didn't do any actual cooking, but it was nice to have a kitchen to do breakfast and sandwiches. It's way up on the 16th floor, which provides a beautiful view!
The building is a little older, but clean and well maintained. There's a little restaurant in the lobby that has very good food and drinks. It's the usual beach cafe fare, pub food with a few seafood things, but I also had a very excellent burger from there one night. The cafe doesn't have a beach view or outside seating, which seems like kind of a missed opportunity, but no matter because they send a roving waitress out to the beach so you can order right from your beach lounger! One of our favorite things was to get takeout dinner and just take it up to our room and eat on our own balcony.
Another great little perk is that in the lobby there is a free DVD rental thing - it works just like a Redbox type deal but it's free with a little card that comes with the room. It had tons of new releases and a few older favorites and kid's movies. A small thing but just a really nice touch!
One really important thing if you want a front-row beach chair: go as soon as you arrive to the umbrella rental hut and reserve for your whole stay. If you really care you might even want to call ahead (look up La Dolce Vita rental co). The condo has beach chairs and an umbrella, but the whole beachfront is occupied by the rental umbrellas so you'd have to set up behind at least 2 rows of people. Of course there are always the couple of people who indecorously bring chairs to set up right in front of the folks who paid for umbrellas, but... what are you gonna do. The rental hut also does kayak and paddle board rentals, parasailing, and other adventurey things to do.
The location is excellent, even if you didn't have a car. Right across the (kind of busy) street is Shakes, a delicious retro-cute frozen custard place, along with some fastfood options (Waffle House, Chick-Fil-A, Wendy's) and a diner. Twice during our week we walked down the beach to the Back Porch, which is about a half mile away but a nice walk along the ocean, and walked back with our frozen drinks.
All in all a really great beach vacation condo! I can't say enough great things about it. We loved it and plan to go back often!
My husband and I needed a relaxing vacation getaway. We had a very busy schedule the last 6 months. We met Daniel last December during our stay at the Sundestin, very nice guy. We have stayed at the Sundestin before. When it was time for our vacation this year, I contacted him, and we are so happy we did. The condo was great, the colors very bright, it came with beach chairs and umbrella's, all the necessities of home. We stayed for 10 days. Spoke with Daniel twice during our visit. Just checking to make sure all was going well. Thank you so much for introducing yourself to us. We will be planning another visit and hope to stay in this rental.
My wife and I got married on Aug. 2nd 2014 and chose to stay in this particular unit. Being new to VRBO and having never stayed in a condo before, I was skeptical at first, but quickly discovered that I not only plan to return, but we will be staying in this unit again. I spoke to Danny on the phone, and he was very informative, disclosed everything, returned any missed calls promptly and answered all our questions precisely. Upon arrival, we were stunned with amazement. The oceanfront view was beautiful. The condo was as described, WELL maintained and very clean. The unit had a full functional kitchen which included a microwave, dishwasher, refrigerator, stove, and dishes & utensils. Beautiful ceramic tile floor, large bedroom and 1 1/2 bath. We arrived in Destin at 6AM, and because no one had stayed the day/night prior, the unit was ready for us, and the owners allowed us to check in upon arrival. Danny called us on our first day there and again as we were on our way home to insure that everything was as we expected. And it was, and then some. We would not hesitate to recommend anyone to stay here, and we plan to return soon. We plan to stay in this particular unit each year we go to Destin. To say we were 100% satisfied is an under statement. We had an amazing vacation and owe a lot of appreciation and a great big thank you to Danny & Vanessa.
The condo/room was clean and up to date, just as described. Our room was an oceanfront room with fantastic views. Just as other people have stated, Danny was very helpful and easy to work with. He called us on our first day to make sure everything was okay. I would recommend this condo to others.
Our family vacation was perfect. The condo had a stunning view and sitting on the balcony was such a treat. The condo itself was clean and everything we would have expected and more. Mr. Danny was a joy to work with. We had a 6 hour drive so we wanted to leave our house early and were able to check in as soon as we arrived. That does not happen often! There's alot to do around the condo but the traffic is a bit cluttered. We had a fantastic time and we will try to rent this particular condo EVERYTIME we go to Destin! 100% satisfied!
