Reviewer Comments:

I stayed at the condo for 5 nights and the condo was just as expected. The furniture and painting was not the newest, but it was well maintained. The layout was very good and the bunk bed room was handy for people with children. A married couple and 4 children would be very comfortable (or two couples and 2 children). The beach access was very good and the free umbrella is always nice. Not a huge pool but nice. The only free extra we used was the movie rental (good if there is rain) but some people might have wanted to use the snorkeling, dolphin cruise or golf (just good for one person a day so you have to pay for the additional people but a nice discount). The air conditioning worked well and the view from the balcony was excellent. I liked the Okaloosa beach area- nice wide beach- quick transit to Destin or the nearby pier. No noise issues, but this was off season so not sure how it would be if the place was full up with children/college students. One minor suggestion- there is a light outside the bunk bed room that is on all night and some blackout curtains would be a good idea. Also, the elevators were slow, not a problem this time of year, but in the middle of summer crowds when it is filled up, that could be an issue. I really couldn't have been more pleased with the condo, though if you are wanting fancy furnishings and want to pay extra for them, this probably isn't the place. I dealt with a condo like that in Destin last year that was very fancy, but made you pay extra for everything umbrellas, check out after 9am, etc. They filled the beach with so many umbrellas that you couldn't see the water (half of which weren't occupied)- essentially blackmailing you into renting them. There are a number of greedy condo associations like that in Destin so you should be on the lookout for them. This one was refreshingly straightforward.
