About Judy Parsons

Hello. We are baby-boomers with a little piece of the beautiful white sands and the emerald waters of Destin. We have personally handled the rentals on our townhomes since 1988. So please feel at ease to enjoy the experience of renting from us and the use of our townhomes. Don and Judy Parsons

Judy Parsons purchased this townhome in 1990

Why Judy Parsons chose Destin

We found our 'Home Away from Home' several years ago vacationing in Destin. We visited many places before deciding on Southbay. The complex is family-friendly and has that 'Old Florida'feeling. Just park at your door with no hassles. All the amenities of the complex are very convenient--beach, pool, tennis courts, fresh-water lake and more.

What makes this townhome unique

Unit 67 is our 3 BR poolside townhome. Please enjoy the private patio adjacent to the pool for your outdoor dining and relaxing.

Beautiful beach❤️❤️❤️❤️

Very private and quite

Drive up to your door. No elevators to maneuver.....

Convenient to restaurants, Wal-Mart, Winn-Dixie, Target, Home Depot, Publix

Guestbook comments from the owner

We enjoyed our family time at your condo #67. We took our family including our married son, his wife and new grand daughter! We chose this unit because it was so close to the pool and easy access to the beach. With a new baby it made it so convenient to run back to our condo when needed. We ate in most nights and your kitchen had plenty of storage and items needed for making meals. The open family room/dining area was a great space for all 7 of us to hang out and play games! I also loved having a washer/dryer in the unit. This was our first time to Destin and we enjoyed the beautiful beach, mini golfing, go-carts and shopping at the outlet mall! It was a great week just being together as a family!

Had a great vacation once again!!

  • 5 of 5

I just want to say that we had a great time as always at Mrs. Parson's Unit# 67 for 4th of July week. We have been staying in this unit for many years and it never disappoints. It is very clean and up to date and has all the amenities one needs for a great vacation. On top of the condo and it's location right next to the pool we are also provided complimentary beach service. The beach is also a very short walking distance from the condo. I've always enjoyed dealing with the Parsons and we have made many life long friends at Southbay over the years. I would highly recommend this unit or any of Mrs. Parson's units for any family looking for a great and affordable vacation. It has always been my favorite place to stay in Destin and we always appreciate the Parson's hospitality!!

We had a super vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We had the best stay and will definitely stay there again! The townhome was super clean and comfortable, and had all the amenities that we needed. The beds were very comfortable and we slept great! The location was very quiet and away from any road noise. A great grocery store was just a two minute drive away and provided everything we needed.

The beach as amazing. It was a short 60 second walk from the townhome. The beach was relatively quiet while we were there, so it was extra relaxing. We spent 3 days just laying on the beach and watching our 5 year old play in the sand and water.

We definitely recommend this townhome to other families. We will be back!

Best Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

This condo was exactly what my family was looking for. It was very clean and comfortable, the kitchen was recently updated, the televisions were updated with wifi connection to Netflix and other smart TV applications. The pool was right outside the back door and the beach was just around the end of the building. The owners included complimentary beach service! It was a wonderful week!

Perfect location

  • 4 of 5

The condo worked perfect for us! The pool was right out the back door and the beach was only a walk through the parking lot. Loved the condo - fit our family just right! The only downside was the wifi did not seem to work very good.
