The location is fabulous! We are in the upscale and newer part of Destin. We are located between the Hilton SanDestin and Topsail Hill State Park. If you are looking for all of the fun activities of the beach, we are right next door to the famous Hilton SanDestin. If you want to enjoy alone time away from the crowds, we are located right next to Topsail Hill State Park. This is 3.2 miles of pristine sandy beaches. This location is prime!

What makes this condo unique

The view! It is breathtaking from the moment you walk into the living room!

Home run for these first timers to Destin !

  • 5 of 5

Coming from the Northeast, we were looking to visit Destin for the first time. Prior to booking, Michelle was extremely helpful not only highlighting her condo(s) available for rental, but also the surrounding Destin area. We wound up choosing this unit and WOW were we ever pleased! Photos do not do justice to the wall of floor to ceiling windows with ocean views and the balcony is absolutely huge. Great location from a beach perspective, as well. Not super crowded!

From a suggestion perspective, for those of us traveling longer distances by plane, it would have been nice to have beach chairs, cooler, and beach towels available with the unit. Perhaps as an option? Not a show stopper, though, but certainly a 'nice to have'.

Lastly, I will tell you that Michelle and her team were extremely accessible during our visit. Our week happened to include the arrival of the tropical storm Alberto over Memorial Day weekend. As the building was putting out tropical storm warnings, etc, Michelle and her team were in communication to ensure all was well and that we were all safe.

All in all, we had a great week in a great condo.

Amazing views and fantastic amenities.

  • 5 of 5

If you are comparing this unit to others in tides tops'l and want to stay at the 'best', this is it.

Great property. Condo is very large and easily accommodated our family of 5. Ocean views are absolutely phenomenal. This the top floor corner unit of a large 15-floor complex. Master bedroom is really a treat. The kitchen is large and stocked with everything needed. The condo features a fantastic set of pools (4 of them!) and a bar/restaurant. The beach is some of the best I've enjoyed in Florida. Sand is clean (no shells, rocks, etc) and water is beautiful. The area is great with easy access to grocery, bars and restaurants. Condo staff is super friendly and it seemed that everyone staying was via a weekly rental or timeshare.

Only two complaints - unit needs new fry pans and beds are very soft and worn out. That being said, after a night of adjustment we slept well.

Owner's Response: Hey Nicole and Tony - I am so glad to hear that you had a fabulous vacation and loved our vacation home. I try to make is as fabulous for our guests as I do for our family! Thank you for you you feedback as I will definitely get a couple of new pans. You may also like to know that my mattresses are extremely expensive as I am a "mattress freak" because I love a good nights sleep! I have Sterns and Foster Luxury Estate mattresses with pillow tops. With that being said, we prefer soft cushiony beds with pillow tops. I have had many travelers tell me that their sleep was the best they had ever experienced and asked me what type of mattresses we had. It sounds like you may sleep on a firmer bed and after a night adjusted to a different mattress type. I am passionate about my mattresses and the #1 reason that I originally purchased my own condo was because I had had a horrible experience with a mattress and wanted to give my guests a fabulous nights sleep when they are on vacation. I am so glad that you had a fabulous time! We look forward to having you again! Michelle and Alan

Simply unbeatable!

  • 5 of 5

Each year we take a fall break vacation, together with our two children, their spouses, and our 3 grandchildren. It is my favorite week of the year. Sometimes it is a challenge to find accomodations that fit all of our needs. We need look no further. This condo is a perfect place for large families or groups to spend together with the backdrop of the soothing beauty of the emerald water and white sand of Miramar Beach! The very large and spacious living area is unique in beach condos. There is plenty of comfortable seating in the family room for at least 8-10 people to spend intimate time together. The spacious balcony with ample comfortable seating for the entire group together is also a huge bonus. The incomparable sweeping views from the floor to ceiling windows on two full sides of the living area simply cannot be beat. Immediately on arrival, we all agreed that this place is simply unbeatable and that we are forever spoiled for future vacations. Michelle and Arlene are so friendly and helpful and make themselves very available should and needs arise. We have been coming to the area for over 15 years and this location tops all previous experiences.
