Great location... close to everything...

  • 4 of 5

great location, condo was in good shape, nice and clean, property well kept up. Pool area was nice. The beach is a bit of a walk but no big deal. The only complaint is that the beach is shared with the Emerald resort and they boat people over all day and their chairs and umbrellas take up alot of the beach, you will need to go far right or far left to get a place to put your chairs. This has no bearing on the condo owners, it is not their fault. Otherwise weather was great and condo was great. Would definitely come back if we come back to Destin. Make sure to visit The Back Porch cafe,, great food!!

Roomy, Comfy, Relaxing.

  • 5 of 5

When we arrived; I had forgotten the code to the gate that Kathy had sent to me with the key. Some one who works there hesitated, called Kathy and finally let me in, he apologized for not letting me in right away but I clearly understood this was my fault. Kathy contacted me back but it had all been corrected quickly. We pulled right up to the unit to unload our stuff and felt like at home right away It was my Husband and I and our two grown kids 18 and 23 and we were very comfortable. The pool is 5 steps away from your back door, we walked on the beach for miles and miles, took beautiful pictures on the jetties, in the evening we would walk to the public beach at the end of the road to watch the sunset and enjoy looking at the boats. It felt very safe and peaceful. This condo is in a great peaceful area. The condo was clean, plenty of towels, plenty of seating, TV in every room, and the Kitchen was well equipped. The surroundings outside the condo were clean and no one bothered us for nothing. I would definitely stay here again perfect place to unwind.

Family - friendly and fun

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I have stayed here twice. The first time in 2012, and the second June 2014. We used to stay at the Islander which is also very nice, but these owners are much more pleasant to deal with. Also, I enjoy staying by the Jetties. I was pleasantly surprised by some of the renovation and upgrades since our stay in 2012.

My Favorite Place to Stay!

  • 5 of 5

I find the negative review shocking.. I have stayed at this condo three times, and just finished a great Thanksgiving week there.. A bit chilly.. but like the color of the water mentioned in the pevious post... Mother Nature's fault not the Owners! Water was beautiful and clear for us! If you want a comfortable condo with a pool and an incredible view.. gorgeous white sandy beach that is NEVER crowded.... This is your place! Updated Tommy Bahama furniture, new stove, large screen tv in family room, tv's in both bedrooms.... and more importantly.. CONVIENCE! You can literally pull up to the back door.. Move in.. And walk out the front door to the pool. I found the Owner to be Terrific.. Kathy was caring, kind, and very responsive. I much prefer this condo to the high rise type properties. Will be returning as soon as possible!

Our Experience.....

  • 1 of 5

First off let me say our family has vacationed in Destin for the last 5 years. We have always stayed near Miramar Beach and have always thoroughly enjoyed our stay. We decided this year we wanted by the jetties so we would have calmer waters and to snorkel. Well,unfortunately it had rained a lot and the water was brown as the Mississippi River our whole stay. So we drove to Miramar Beach and the water was clear there for some reason. From our Poolside Villa condo you had about a 300 yard walk to the water through sand out behind the pool. Our condo was dated except for the tile floors. The cabinets was original 1982 and the walls could use a fresh coat of paint as many touch ups were visible. One cabinet door was almost off its hinge and was hanging down and the only outlet in the master bath did not work. I notified owner of these issues the 2nd day of our stay. Her response was to retrieve screwdriver and fix cabinet and to check breaker box , for ME to. Owner described unit as being in tip top condition and it obviously was not. Upon our arrival back home after vacation I tried to contact owner numerous times by phone and email concerning our deposit. 3 weeks went by until I finally got a response saying her housekeeper found some sand in refrigerator and some towels had stains. Another week goes by as I try to call again about this. Was told by email we would not be receiving our full deposit, as not one of my calls was returned. As for the sand in refrigerator, my son might of had a little on bottom of his bait he was fishing with, but very little. The towels were already in that condition or that just did not happen as we used nothing that contained bleach to wash with. I never got a picture of the towels or the sand in fridge either to confirm. We did pay a cleaning fee as part of our stay as well. I would not recommend this unit to anyone. If there was any issues, we should of been notified immediately not after 3 weeks pass. I would welcome an owners response to this review as well.

Owner's Response: We are truly sorry our previous renters were disappointed. We make every effort that our guests have a happy and comfortable stay. Unfortunately, when it rains a lot along with tides sweeping in and out the color and clarity of the Gulf waters is affected as it was this summer.We have always rented our condo ourselves and we've never hired a realty to rent it or clean it. We take a great deal of pride in it and it is in very good condition and is very clean and orderly. We actually get many compliments about our décor so I'm sorry it wasn't to our guests liking. Remodeling has been done and furnishings have been updated since purchasing our unit along with replacing bedroom carpet and new 18" tile laid throughout our condo. Again, I'm sorry it did not meet their expectations. Painting is done regularly as needed, usually after heavy rental season is over. Our cabinet door was not falling off- it simply needed a minor tightening of it's hinge. We were asked where our breaker box was and a click of a switch took care of restoring power to an outlet. We left town for one week to attend a wedding and family reunion.While there our housekeeper sent us pictures of towels that were discolored and stained. This brand new set of towels had just been put out prior to renters arrival. Subsequently my housekeeper had to purchase a new set of towels and there was also a trip charge billed to us. Another picture showed our refrigerator/freezer in bad shape with sand. Because of this we were charged a higher cleaning fee than we normally pay. What previous renter failed to state was that we worked with him and agreed to split our housekeeping fee. After returning from our trip and receiving our condo keys back in the mail our guest was contacted, and pictures of damage were sent to our guest. We decided to hold back $100 of our renters total deposit.
