One word - WONDERFUL!!!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved this condo and would absolutely recommend it! What initially caught my eye was that it had been newly renovated, because I associate that with clean. This condo was every bit as clean as our home, and just as comfortable...exactly as listed, and exactly what we were hoping to find. The beach themed decorations were adorable and just added to the vacation atmosphere. I loved the little mermaid decorations and actually found and bought a couple for us to enjoy. Now our bathroom at home is a constant reminder of this fantastic condo in Destin, and fun times at the beach!

This location is a nice, quiet neighborhood, away from all the hustle and bustle, but at the same time, close enough to reach all the action in just a few minutes. The view from our balcony was beautiful and entertaining. The beach is across the street, but we could see the surf and watch the waves roll in, and the bike/walking trail provided us with plenty of people watching opportunities. So relaxing, and the resident Mockingbird sang to us all week. Be sure to try "The Donut Hole", "Hog's Breath", and especially "Crust", with their fabulous pizza and Key Lime Pie...heavenly! Terri was so pleasant to work with, and very helpful. We very much appreciate her for creating such a wonderful place to stay at the beach...and especially for sharing it with the rest of us!!!

Better than advertised!

  • 5 of 5

Terri was very easy to work with! Her description of the condo is understated. Pictures do not do the condo and view justice! Well equipped kitchen and bathrooms with generous starter supplies. Paul and I travel to the Panhandle yearly and this has to be one of the cleanest condos we've stayed in. The bed linens were great quality and the bed provided a good night's rest. The distance to the beach is very minimal, taking maybe 2 minutes! This stretch of beach rivals the Caribbean with it's clear light aquamarine color and pure white sand. We arrived when Hurricane Nate was making landfall. It was magnificent to see! Within 36 hrs it was done and you'd never know it came. Maintenance did a fine job of cleaning any debris that was left as a result of the Hurricane. There was no sign of anything on the seaweed or excess sea grass. Condo is within walking distance to a couple restaurants and the grocery store is a quick 5 min drive.

This was a perfect spot for us to spend our 39th wedding anniversary!

Thanks Terri for the quick responses to our questions and for checking on us a couple times! We wanted for was perfect!

We loved the view each day. It was close to the beach. The stairs got to us a few times as there is no elevator. The condo had everything we needed.
