About Sissy Barrett

This beach condo has been in our family for over 37 years and is still one of the premium locations and properties on the Emerald Coast! Jetty East has always held a special place in my heart and I have many fond memories of playing in the surf, the pool and fishing from the Jetties. We vacation as an extended family here often and now our children are creating their own memories and we hope you will enjoy staying here and creating your own special beach vacation memories too!

Sissy Barrett purchased this condo in 1977

Why Sissy Barrett chose Florida North West

Our guests come back year after year because of the cherished memories they made as a family and having their children grow up with memories of vacationing here each summer. We are now into 3rd and 4th generation families who gather for vacations/reunions because Jetty East has has become a fixture in their lives. It is in a prime location on Holiday Isle, beautiful beach front and close to loads of fabulous restaurants, shopping, fun activities and excursions! Now is the perfect time to book and begin making your precious memories at Jetty East!!

What makes this condo unique

Jetty East has so much to offer in making it the best of beach vacations! The property sits right on the beach and you can enjoy the pool, hot tub or shady cabana all with spectacular beach views and the sounds of the ocean. Our children enjoy going back and forth to the pool and beach easily as they are literally next to each other. It is a very short beach walk to the jetties where you can sit for hours and watch the fishing and leisure boats navigate the pass, all while enjoying a fantastic sunset. We also love to fish and snorkel off the jetties . The huge 3500 sq foot outdoor pavillion is the only one where families can grill out and eat together right on the beach. Plenty of grills (10) and lots of tables and seating for everyone to enjoy!

Wonderful place to stay.

  • 5 of 5

This was our best vacation yet! Jetty East is tucked back close to the beach - only a few minutes walk from the condo to the pool/beach. The unit was clean and well kept, very roomy for our family of four. Will definitely try to stay there again when we venture to Destin. Owner was extremely helpful and great at communicating with us! You won't be disappointed in choosing this property at Jetty East!

Best location with lots to do

  • 4 of 5

I really enjoyed the stay at room 316b in Jetty East. My vacation usually revolves around fishing out of my kayak, snorkeling, and being on the beach. I was able to do all three with just a short walk down to the jettys. You will not find a better place to watch the sunset when you take a short walk to the jetties as the sun is falling. At night we called a water taxi to pick us up and go over to the board walk which was fairly easy if you know your way around holiday isle. The condo was clean, very well decorated, and the lay out was perfect. The only short coming I can think of is the water pressure. I got to know alot of the yearly returning customers at Jetty East and they said their water pressure was the same as ours year around. This isn't a huge deal breaker for us being that you can still take a shower... it just takes a while to get the soap out of your hair. Sissy was very easy to deal with and answered all the various questions I had before my trip. Between her awesome condo and her hospitality I will be keeping in touch with her to stay again.

Owner's Response: Hi!! So thrilled you guys had a great stay!! It is a perfect location for enjoying the beach, fishing, sunsets, the jetties, snorkeling, kayaking and being close to all the great activities and restaurants Destin has to offer...or just "chilling" in the condo!! I am so sorry about the water pressure being a little low!!! I have not had that come up before with any guests and sincerely sorry it was low during your stay!! I will certainly make sure to look into that with the property and see if something was "off" or going on during that time. In general when we are there periodically and with previous guests in our units that has not been an issue but certainly do not want that to hinder anyone or cause any concerns so I appreciate that head's up on that so I can follow up!! We so appreciate your booking with us at Jetty East 316 and we would LOVE to have you back!! Take care!! Sissy

Wonderful Place!!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at Jetty East 316. The view was beautiful and just a short walk to the beach. Sissy was so easy to work with. We were scheduled to go to Corpus Christi, but hurricane Harvey made us change our plans. We found the Jetty East condo on line and Sissy responded to our inquiry within just a couple of hours. She made it so easy for us.

We really appreciated all her help. The condo was well equipped and very comfortable. We shall definitely remember Jetty East 316 when we return to Destin.

Owner's Response: Hi!! So happy it worked out for you guys to stay with us!! It is very rare that we would have this week open and was the only week available with any of our rental options so it was meant to be that you guys were able to make the trip to our condo in Destin!! It is heartbreaking all that Texas is dealing with right now and hope all are able to get back into their homes, make repairs and get back to their day to day lives soon!! We so appreciate your booking with us and we would LOVE to have you back!! Take care, Sissy

Owner's Response: Hi!! So happy you guys had a great stay!!! We updated these units with new sofas, new end tables, coffee table, new accessories and a custom new dining table as well as new carpet in the bedrooms this past winter. We also added custom "barn style" sliding doors in the master bath and front closet. My sincere apologies for any spots our housekeeping service missed!! They are typically very thorough and I have already shared this with them so that will not happen again!!! And thank you for letting us know about the master bath sink...we have on site maintenance and will get them on it right away!!! We are happy for guests to let us know anytime during their stay if anything comes up so we can have it addressed ASAP!! We also leave a note in the unit for guests with the housekeeping contact so if for any reason there is something not up to our standards guests can contact them and have it taken care of or I am always happy to follow up to make sure our guests are satisfied with their accommodations. That is our number one priority!! We so appreciate your booking with us and we would LOVE to have you back!! Take care, Sissy

This condo was amazing! It has everything you need and really makes you feel at home. We did not have great weather during our stay but we found games and read books while there. Sissy is very sweet and if you need anything she is there to answer any questions you may have. She also responds very quickly. We will definitely be coming back to stay!

Big Letdown

  • 1 of 5

We were expecting a relaxing stay at this condo but soon learned it would not be relaxing at all. On the plus side we found new sofas, end tables and coffee tables in the living room and new carpeting in the bedrooms. Later a new dining table and chairs along with a new custom made tv cabinet were delivered.

There were some problems with the wifi but these were addressed quickly and corrected. We were very disappointed with the cleanliness of the condo upon our arrival. Everything was covered with huge amounts of dust and lint. We found the lint was coming from the clothes dryer. The dryer, we discovered, was being vented into a bucket that was supposed to be filled with water. The bucket contained no water, therefore, the lint was being spread throughout the condo. This was a strange setup to us. We should have been made aware of this prior to our arrival. This is not healthy to people who have breathing problems such as COPD and asthma. We spent our first two weeks cleaning. We also discovered there was not filter in the heating/cooling system, causing the dirty air to be discharged throughout the condo.

Our other major concern was the heavy construction going on our entire stay. There was a large number of construction workers plus Jetty East workers there from 8am until late evening everyday. They were putting in new Windows, painting, sanding, etc. It was extremely noisy and dirty. Our cars were filthy all the time. We had two elevators that would have been convenient for our use. One was out of service most of the time and the other was being used by workers, making for long waits for an elevator. I talked to one worker who told me they had orders to clock out before the spring breakers arrived and to come back after spring break.

All in all, we were disappointed with our stay. We paid a lot of money just to have a lot of problems. If we had been made aware of the ongoing construction, we would not have gone there.

Owner's Response: First let me say that this is our first ever negative review and we very much regret that we had an unhappy guest. We sincerely apologize again for any issues that came up during your stay. But I do want to address and clarify what I can regarding your time with us. I did set up a "preview" with our housekeeping service in advance to let you in our unit so that you may look around, see it in person and decide if it was a good fit for your winter stay as you stated you were "unhappy with your current rental". You had the opportunity to look around, ask questions and decide for yourself if that was going to work for you. While I agree that is a bit unusual for a dryer set up the entire property as well as many beach condos are set up that way when dryers are not vented outside the building. Water is regularly added at each rental turnover but may have needed additional water added as you had an extended stay. There was additional dust due to some of the maintenance and repairs being updated on the property. I do apologize that the renovations were extending into January and February. We were not allowed any rentals during Nov/Dec due to the updates but unfortunately they ran over trying to get it all complete and there was unfortunately no way for us to know that in advance. Winter is when updates are typically made and why you rented with the lowest rates of the year and the extended discount I gave for a two month rental. It is unfortunate you have several health issues and in light of all you dealt with personally I offered to reimburse you for your remaining rental fees and allow you to find another property more suited for your liking and you replied "no, I like it here". I have our housekeeping and maintenance check the filters regularly and report back and at no time was there not a filter within our system. We even have them marked and dated. I am sorry you did not enjoy your time and do apologize again for the maintenance but we did everything we could to accommodate your needs. Knowing that you were unhappy with your previous rental property and now ours I am not certain that spending winters in Destin are the best option with your ongoing COPD concerns which we were unaware of. But I do want to point out that we had a guest after your visit post they had a wonderful experience and stay with us for their spring break and were happy with all we had to offer. I believe from now on we will only rent for those season vacationers.
