Outdated.. No much amentites...smelled bad

  • 3 of 5

The property was comfortable for our trip but you would have to be ready to haul some stuff to the beach though. It may be a block back but getting around the other condos makes it more like two blocks. There's no path straight across. The pool was dirty the whole time we were there and wasn't much of a pool anyways. No TV in bedroom and TV in living room kept losing its connection with Cox because the wires are pressed so hard against the wall. Need new cleaning service; we found a tampon on the floor in the living room. (Still in its wrapper) but still was clearly overlooked. And whoever stayed last must have used curry when cooking their food.. it had a bad smell upon arrival. Overall... it's okay if you have things to do other than the beach. Location is good for things to do on Scenic Gulf Dr.

Owner's Response: We always hope guests ask questions and look through our listing to make sure our affordable condo is right for them. There is a map on VRBO and on our condo's website that shows our exact location in proximity to the beach (it's close). Beachgoers sometimes try to park at our complex when the public beach parking lot gets full. Our listing also mentions one flat screen television. We have it set up in the living room for hanging with family/friends before and after the beach. We do have a picture of the pool on our listing. It has always been enjoyable and clean for our family trips and it was clean just a week earlier when we last visited. Tropical Storm Cindy did hit the Gulf Coast just a day or two prior to this guests arrival, so we do apologize if there were still some leaves in the pool following the storm. Concerning the smell you experienced, we definitely can't control what our guests choose to cook on their vacation - nor do we want to. We would like future guests to know that our condominium does not smell in general. We do apologize a new, still-in-its-wrapper, feminine product was found by you - but overlooked by our cleaning crew. After we received this review making us aware of the situation, we spoke to the cleaning crew immediately who swore they did not see anything of that nature when they were finished cleaning that morning. They did apologize if one fell out of an employee's purse while they were leaving, or if it was left by the last guest and it was simply not seen. We have gotten a new cleaning crew to help ensure nothing like this happens again. Concerning Cox communication, we have never heard of any connection problems from guests prior to these guests - or even this guest before this review. We have also never heard of any problems from guests who followed this guest concerning the connection. Our guests always have our phone number so we can help resolve any issues.

Great Vacation Trip

  • 5 of 5

This was the first time to Destin, FL and we definitely want to come back to stay here. We loved how conviently located everything was. The condo is just a short walk to the beach and there is beach access right next Pampano Joes Resteraunt. We would often set up behind the resteraunt and in the evening they would have an outdoor band that would play that you could hear along with relaxing at the beach. The food is a little pricey but was one of my favorite meals while in Destin. The other thing we loved about this rental was the paddleboards. We had so much fun exploring the ocean with these. We got to see sea turtles and dolphin while paddleboarding. It is a great way to get some exercise while on vacation. Can't say enough good things about the owner of the condo. He was very helpful and responsive to the needs we had.

Great little place, great price

  • 5 of 5

We went as a family of 4, and it worked out great. Place is clean. Owner is very responsive. Love the swimming pool, and we had the pool to ourselves the entire time we were there. No one else used it. The neighbors are nice. We were greeted by an affectionate neighbor cat named Butter Bean everyday. Only 5 minutes walk to the beach and the money you save to be right on the beach will cover your food cost. It is expensive to eat by seaside there. CVS and Winn-Dixie are very close to the house with just a few minutes of driving. And Miramar beach is just as pretty as Destin, but it is not crowded at all so you get to enjoy it without too many people around you.

The kitchen has all you need to do some light cooking.

The Paddleboard Retreat is perfect for couples, up to family of 4.


1 - Pompano Joe serves lunch until 3:45. Having late lunch there, and make sandwiches or cook something inexpensive at the house for dinner will save you a lot of money.

2 - Highly recommend Dewey's. Best seafood restaurant in Destin, IMO. Their stuffed shrimp is legendary (large Gulf shrimps stuffed with real crab meat, wrapped in bacon, and deep fried) Pompano Joe is pretty awesome too.

3 - We took the Boogies 6 PM boat tour and we saw about 8-10 dolphins. It was awesome. Highly recommend it, and for that time frame.

4 - Coffee at Bad Ass Coffee is truly bad ass, and it is walking distance.

5 - Take 25 minutes drive to Okaloosa Island (East of 98) and watch the fireworks by Crab Trap Boardwalk every Wednesday night. We were surprised that there were not many people there. BTW, love the food at Crab Trap. Also, Floyd's next door from Crab Trap has all you can eat popcorn shrimp during happy hour.

6 - If you don't mind the drive, we always drive to Pensacola to Joe Patti's every time we are down by the Gulf. We buy seafood there, and to have sushi right there in the seafood does not get any fresher.

Awesome place!

  • 5 of 5

This little condo was just perfect! It was off the main road but still just a short walk to the beach and Pompano Joes. It's not fancy, but nice and clean and had everything we needed including wi-fi. The paddleboards looked fun, but weighed more than me so I didn't use them, but I wanted to! The neighbor "Len" was a cool guy that made for good local advice and overall great conversations! We will be back for sure! Can you rent this long term? We are moving here in Sept!

Great Place 👌

  • 5 of 5

I would definitely recommend staying here. We had a great time. It isn't lavish, but you have everything you need and lavish isn't a necessity when you're at the beach. We couldn't complain about anything. There is a sleeper sofa if anyone additional wants to crash, two paddle boards to take at your leisure if the weather permits, an easy walk to the beach and a few restaurants, and don't forget the awesome neighbor in 1B that makes for great porch sit conversation. We'll definitely go back.
