About the property

Condo, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed, 2 Baths, Sleeps 7

This luxurious two bedroom, two bath condo is on the tenth floor at Surfside Resort, a BEACHFRONT building, just east of Destin. This west-side unit has a fine ocean view to the south and a partial view to the north of Seascape golf course and the bay beyond. It offers covered parking and free superfast wi-fi for your laptops and other devices. Beach service--one umbrella & two chairs--is included too.

High ceilings, mirrored walls, tile floors, and floor-to-ceiling sliding doors create a feeling of spaciousness in this comfortable 1150 sq. ft. condo. Recently redecorated, it has a stylish contemporary tropical decor. All rooms have floor-to-ceiling sliding doors opening onto the 28 ft. balcony which is furnished for outdoor dining and sunning.

The recently remodeled kitchen is fully-equipped with stainless appliances--glasstop range, built-in microwave, French door refrigerator--all dishes, wares, utensils and small appliances including a Keurig coffee maker as well as a Mr. Coffee. The kitchen eating area has a view of the beach.

All linens are furnished except beach towels. This condo has a FULL-SIZE WASHER and DRYER.

Sleeping arranagements: The bedrooms are on opposite sides of the living area--great for two couples. The 12 x 18 master features a king-size bed, two walk-in closets, and a large remodeled bath. From the bed, you can see the surf and HEAR THE WAVES. The second bedroom contains two double beds and has its own full bath. Each bedroom has a TV and DVD. The sofa-bed sleeps two for added flexibility.

In addition to the heated pool and the beach, Surfside has two hot tubs, dry suana, and a kiddie pool. There's also a picnic area with charcoal grills and another picnic area overlooking the beach. For exercise we offer a well-equipped workout room, two tennis courts and a basketball court.

Within four miles are five golf courses, one right next door. Also close by are grocery stores, Silver Sands Designer Outlet Mall, the Shops of Sandestin, Baytowne Wharf, and numerous restaurants. Surfside has it's own excellent restaurant and bar too!

The up-scale building is unique in Destin for its concrete and steel construction, unusual angled floor plans, and carpeted interior hallways. The public areas at Surfside have recently been renovated, and our beach has been renourished since the hurricanes. COVERED PARKING means your car is always in the shade.

About Sue Wilson

I'm a former English teacher and my husband is retired from the insurance industry. We live in suburban Atlanta. Since we have lots of free time now, we grow tomatoes, read, watch HGTV and PBS, play pickleball and go out ballroom dancing on weekends. We spend a lot of time at the beach off-season. The snow white sand and turquoise waters are simply awesome !

Sue Wilson purchased this condo in 1998

Why Sue Wilson chose Miramar Beach

When we began anticipating retirement, we wanted to find a 2nd home on a beautiful beach within easy driving distance from Atlanta. Destin is absolutely the best beach town we've ever visited. Surfside is a particularly sturdy building in a great location near the best shopping and entertainment.

What makes this condo unique

Over the years, we have enjoyed fixing up our condo, redecorating it to make it just like home--only better. We have a wonderful gulf view from our balcony, and eat most of our meals out there. The sugar-sand beach is only a few feet from the front door of the building. We love to get fresh seafood from the local market, cook it at home, and enjoy it with a great bottle of wine overlooking the ocean, the sound of waves for background music. Ah-h-h, life is good.

My wife, daughter, and I had no problems once we arrived at Surfside Resort. No suprises.

  • 5 of 5

This was our second visit to Surfside Resort. The owner, Mrs. Wilson, kept me abreast with clear functions of the rental. The level of quietness was greatly noticeable throughout our stay. All the necessary amenities were made available, the condo was clean, and the opportunity to check in early was made available to us. The visit there is what we needed.

Good time was had by all!

  • 5 of 5

The condo was great! We had a really good time.

I did not like the parking. People in large vehicles taking up 2 spaces, very tight and not enough spots.

Owner's Response: I'm so glad you were pleased with the condo and had a good time. No question that the parking is tight in July when the building is full. But it's free (unlike most hotels), only a few feet from the building entrances (not across acres of parking lot), and it is in a covered parking deck so your vehicle is in the shade.
