Guestbook comments from the owner

Thanks Bobby & Earlene for a fantastic long weekend at your condo. We were looking for a place to get away for 5 days and your place was fabulous. I got to say that watching the NBA playoff games on the HD TV in the living room was the best. We also rented bicycles and your place was so convientent to the bike path on 30A. Your place is first class and I know will be renting again in the future. Thanks again!

Best Condo Ever!

  • 5 of 5

This condo exceeded all of our expectations, and in our 17 years of family beach trips, it has to be our nicest condo, with the best overall experience. After our visit, the owner (Earlene) called to ask about our stay, and if there was anything that needed to be changed. I could not think of a thing. The cabinets were well stocked, everything was in good working order, and all areas were clean. The décor was beautiful, and the couches and chairs were large and very comfortable. If I counted correctly, the two living areas had a total of five large chairs that were either recliners or chairs with a footrest. The view from the couch in one of the sitting areas was my personal favorite, as it had a perfect view of the beach. The grandchildren loved their bedroom with the TV and game area. Communication with the owners was easy, with excellent response time both before and after our stay. We have requested the same days for next year, and plan to continue staying here as long as we are able.

Fantastic Stay in a Fantastic Place

  • 5 of 5

We have been to Destin many times and always enjoy being out in the Blue Mountain Beach area away from the crowds in Downtown Destin. This was the first time we rented the Fogle's home and couldn't have been more pleased. Our mixed group consisting of two grandparents, two younger families each with two smaller children had a ball. The condo is very spacious and spread out enough that we never got in each other's way. The furnishings and floorplan make for a very relaxing and enjoyable visit. The "children's room" was a special feature in that all the kids practically lived there when not at the beach, pool, or sightseeing. The beach view from the patio is awesome and unlike many condos at SBTS, it is mostly shaded from the glaring afternoon sun making for much more enjoyable evening cocktail hours. We rented bikes from Big Daddy's and they delivered them to the elevator station just below the condo, a nice convenience. Family bike treks to Grayton beach and Seaside were a pleasure. The beach service is first come, first serve but the beach was really not very crowded. and everything was right there when we needed it and stayed up till we quit and. We are planning for our return next year.

The SBTS complex continues to be kept in Excellent condition and looking good.

As a final note, we were very pleased with communications throughout. All exhanges or requests were addressed promptly and thorughly. Kudos to Earlene on handling this aspect of the rental so well.

Best Beach Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

It was the best family reunion vacation we could have asked for. The condo was superb with fantastic views of the beach. We could have stayed on the patio the entire time with the scenery we had. The beach was quiet and peaceful with lots of families. I can't say enough about the condo! Magnificent! We had everything we needed there. Great kitchen with plenty of cooking utensils on hand. We loved it and plan to be back next year!

Staying at the Fogle's was wonderful - best beach vacation ever! The condo and whole complex is top notch with everything you could ever want in a vacation stay. The beach and view are gorgeous - you won't want to leave. The condo is spacious, spotless and beautiful! I would love to take the huge kitchen home with me! Everything is so convenient in the area - grocery store, fabulous restaurants and great shopping. Highly recommend this condo for your next vacation!

This is the most wonderful and amazing place to stay in all of 30A. My family has vacationed for several years in the 30A area and have never seen or stayed in anything that is as amazing as this place. I would give it 20 stars if possible. The views from the huge balcony are breath taking and you are just a short walk (no stairs!) from the beach itself. The home itself was luxurious and spotless. The kitchen is huge and wonderfully stocked with all you need to cook and there is plenty of room to gather and eat without bumping into each other. The bedrooms all have TVs and spectacular bathrooms and the beds are the most comfortable I have ever slept in anywhere. Two rooms have balcony access so that you can wake up and walk right outside to take in the views and ocean air. There is game room that all of our kids hung out in when they weren't swimming, or playing at the beach. Have I mentioned the views from the balcony...well its worth mentioning again. In fact, we spent most of our time eating and talking on the balcony especially at night. You can hear the ocean waves crashing and stare at the stars and sometimes watch the night sky light up with lightning from a thunderstorm far away in the gulf. Two sets of washers and dryers was also perfect since we had 4 kids and 4 adults which allowed us to pack less clothes. Have I mentioned the amazing kitchen...well its worth mentioning again..simply wonderful. If you are like me and are reading reviews to find out where the best place to stay me you have found it. There is a huge lake just to right of this place where you can fish or just sit in a really nice gazebo and take in the views or you can walk down to the ocean or go to the pool all located within a very short walking distance. The grounds of this facility are immaculate and incredibly clean with very attentive staff. The pools and hot tubs are perfectly maintained. If you don't swim then just curl up next to one of gas operated outside fire places or go play some virtual golf or just get lost while gazing at the ocean from one of the pool side chairs. Trust me this play will leave you wanting to stay forever. The owners Bobby & Earlene Fogle were wonderful as well and answered all of our questions and were always available. You won't regret staying here..worth every penny. We will be back every year as our search for the perfect place on 30A is finally over. Thank you to the Fogles for the best vacation ever!!!

Great amenities, great location!

  • 5 of 5

We recently stayed at this condominium and had a great time! We really like the location of the are right next to the pool, as well as a short walk to the beach. That was very important for us, as we had children who wanted to do both throughout the day.

The bedrooms were spacious, and the common area is very open. This is also important for us, so you didn't feel like you were "on top of each other". This is our second time staying in this unit, and would recommend it to anyone. Thanks!
