Overview

About the property

2 Bedrooms + 2 Convertible Bed(s), 2 Baths

At The Tides @ Tops’l. If you’ve never made your way to Tops’l you don’t know what you’re missing. This place has everything. Beautiful beach. In fact rated best by Southern Living. And if you can’t trust them who can you trust. Incredible views. Close to golf.

The Tides are part of Tops’l Beach & Racquet Resort which is smack dab in the middle of 52 beautifully landscaped acres bordered by the Gulf of Mexico and by Topsail Hill State Preserve. WOW! There’s 600 feet of private, sandy white beaches. There’s a ton of stuff to do here, with the daytime activities and nightlife of neighboring Sandestin and other noted communities to the west, and a nature preserve for quiet and solitude to the east. Tops'l provides the best of both worlds.

At tides you will have many wonderful amenities such as free wireless internet, private, heated tides pool, community grills, basketball, putt-putt, nature trails, and many kids programs. Also, tops'l hill nature preserve is upon a national historic registry spot (next to beach manor on tops'l resort) where usa military tested captured German v2 buzz-bomb rockets there in 1944.

And if that weren’t enough, Silver Sands Outlet Mall, one of the largest in the US, is less than 5 minutes away. Sandestin's popular Baytowne Wharf is just across the street to the west with shops, excellent restaurants and entertainment on the bay. Concerts on Wednesdays and family movies on Thursdays are popular family outings on the lawn at the Wharf. Sandestin's recently developed Grand Boulevard Town Center, nearby to the east, has upscale shopping and many excellent restaurant options. There’s so much to do here you won’t be able to fit it into a week’s vacation. So stay two! That’s what I’d do.

Now let me tell you about the actual unit…

Unit 1109 is a perfectly updated, luxurious 11th floor condo. From the entrance hall, you can see straight through the condo to your private, expansive, 11th floor balcony and the breathtaking gulf of Mexico. In addition to a dining table, your balcony includes a small sitting area for you to enjoy your afternoons. From your balcony, your view will stretch from the gulf all the way back over the lush greenery of the Destin resorts.

The kitchen is fully equipped with breakfast bar. You will also find a washer and dryer for your up-most convenience.

The master bedroom has a luxurious king size bed, flat screen HDTV, DVD player, and the master bathroom has beautiful tile work, a whirlpool tub, and a walk in shower. The second bedroom holds two twin beds, flat screen HDTV, DVD player, and its own private access to the second bathroom.

Nice Property

  • 4 of 5

My family had a great time there. Very nice condo. But it didn't exactly meet my expectations.

The property is a little set back from the beach and the way the property is laid out it is a short hike to the beach. As the guy that was doing the hauling of the gear, it probably seemed longer to me than my family.

The view is not as good as the pictures would lead you to believe. Yes, you can see the beach and the water, but it is far from a panoramic view. It is more of a window of the beach. You have a much better view of the Hilton and the condo units between the Tides and Hilton. But the balcony is huge with two big tables and plenty of chairs. We spent a lot of time out there in the early morning and evenings. I would have expected to hear the waves crashing. Instead, all I heard was the building's generator running in the parking lot 11 stories below.

I thought based on some previous reviews that there would be some beach toys and gear available, but that wasn't the case. It could be a case of the previous visitor taking stuff home, or perhaps the cleaning crew cleaned it out before we arrived. I knew it might be hit or miss, so this wasn't a big deal.

The kitchen was well stocked with appliances, dishes, and pans. Not at all stocked with basic spices. Previous condos I've stayed in had plenty of spices, oils, etc. that previous guests have left behind, so I wasn't expecting to have to repurchase some basic items like salt and pepper. No big deal, but did require an extra trip or two to the local grocery.

We had minimal contact with the owner (a couple of emails upon booking and payment). No need to have any additional contact with him, but he was responsive when needed.

Overall, I very good condo and a nice trip. Just don't expect panoramic views of the beach or listening to the crashing of waves from your balcony.

Wonderful experience!

  • 5 of 5

The property at the Tides at Tops'l was a perfect location for our family getaway. The home was spotless, and the views were spectacular. The owners were very helpful and the staff at Tops'l were so very friendly and helpful. There is so much to do in the Destin area and we can't wait to return. We will definitely contact the owners of this unit to stay here again. Thank you so much!!!

Tops'l unit 1109

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed another great stay in the Tides at Tops'l in unit 1109. Everything we need is in the condo and it's always clean and fresh. Hope to be back next summer and we can stay in the same unit.
