First time to Destin

  • 5 of 5

Condo was everything it showed. Loved it when we walked in. The downside was the walk from the elevator. It is the last room on the east wing of the building and it an outside walkway, but that also makes for an amazing view and is well worth the walk. The staff were very helpful and friendly. Now for a few suggestions. #1 put blinds or drapes on master window. #2 all 3 closets had clutter in them that needs addressing. #3 1 tea towel and 2 dishcloths for a 2 week stay was a little stingy, but there were plenty of other linens. #4 the carpet could stand to be replaced. #5 the king mattress could stand to be replaced.

I would return in a heartbeat, so none of the suggestions would be a deal breaker. It was an amazing 2 weeks and the worst thing was returning to 8" of snow!

Nice Condo.

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay and thought the Condo. was very nice. The pool and beach area was great. We would stay here again.

There were a few issues that I want to bring up. Not sure if this is where I address them but here goes...

1. The Twin air mattress had a hole in it.

2. The queen air mattress was filthy and had sand all over it. Also, the air pump did not have an attachment to use to blow up the queen air mattress.

3. There was a new full air mattress that we opened and used.

4. The air pump is only battery operated so it took a while to blow up the full mattress.

5. There was no dish soap and I thought it was supplied. This was not that big of deal, we bought some.

I did not contact anyone about these issues because we just made do with what we had.

I was very pleased with the amount of towels we had, extra TP and the little soaps.

Thanks for everything.

Beautiful view

  • 2 of 5

The condo had a beautiful view of the gulf! We enjoyed it! There were a couple of things we disliked about our stay. The couch was very dirty. We just covered it with a sheet. When I pulled back the blanket in the master room there were a few hairs on the bed. Hair grosses me out! The kitchen was gorgeous but the rest of it really needed some updating! The carpet was very dirty looking, and it had a very musty smell to it. The codominum itself was gorgeous! We really loved the place! Very nice! I would give the condo a 3 star rating. I'm not sure if I would ever recommend it to anyone though.
