About David Callahan or Paige Callahan

Paige & David Callahan

We have been married over 30 years, and love to travel together. The beach is an annual trip for us, and buying this condo will hopefully be our place for retirement in a few years. I am in sales and Paige works with the public Elementary School as a media specialist assistant. We want to share our condo with people with our vision so we will have a nice place to retire.

David Callahan or Paige Callahan purchased this condo in 2010

Why David Callahan or Paige Callahan chose Destin

These are the best beaches and water we have ever seen. We are only 6 hours away, and are proud to have been able to make this purchase.

What makes this condo unique

There are so many things to do in the Destin area. Great restaurants, golf courses, shopping areas, friendly people everywhere you go!

This unit is excellent. Definitely a 5 star rating.

  • 5 of 5

This unit (1105) is well equipped with everything needed for a nice vacation.

The kitchen has all items that you will need.

The beds are very comfortable.

Showers are great.

The place is extremely clean.

It also had beach chairs, a cooler, and floats for adults and children.

Our 1st family vacation- great location private beach right in the middle of everything

  • 4 of 5

Nice condo- lots of stuff to do within just a few miles. Great ocean view from the balcony but if you want front row beach chairs you better reserve them early because they go fast ... the whole building did have to evacuate at 11 pm when we were trying to go to bed after the fire dept gave the all clear that it was a faulty sensor then we got to go back in but that's not really the way you want to spend your 1st night of your 1st family vacation . The sleeper sofa might be ok for kids but was not good for my 18 yr old son but it was a really nice place and the workers were really friendly . Everything was gated so we felt safe yet it was easy for us to come and go with the keys and codes they gave us

Perfect for our girls trip!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for a long weekend and had such a fantastic time! David and Paige were prompt, professional and thorough when it came to the booking and stay. This was my first time using a VRBO but after this experience, I will recommend it to anyone! The condo was clean and cozy and had everything we needed. We LOVED sitting on the balcony with our coffee in the morning and rested so well at night. The beach service was great also and it was SUCH a treat to have a 3 min walk down to the water with only a small bag (no kids this trip!) and cooler! We took Uber some nights and walked the beach to the Back Porch for dinner one night, but the kitchen and fridge are very spacious if you want to cook at home. Thank you so much for letting us enjoy and relax on our girls trip!

Fantastic Views! Great Condo!

  • 5 of 5

I cant say enough great things about this unit! The views are breathtaking! We watched the dolphins swimming early in the morning from our balcony. The condo is very nice, it was more than we expected even down to the comfy beds. David & Paige are amazing to work with & they are so kind. They wanted our first trip to Destin to be great & thanks to them for sharing thier wonderful condo with us! We loved our first trip to Destin & would come back to this condo every time! The Back Porch Restaurant is just a stroll down the beach, we enjoyed walking down there in the evening. You will fall in love listening to the waves from the ocean sitting in the living room! This condo was top notch, you have to see it in person! I must say, definately be sure to go down to the Destin Harborwalk. There is so many fun things to see & do there. And a sunset dolphin cruise is a must! We were so sad to leave the beautiful Emerald Coastline, we had the best time ever!
