Why Tracy Brooks Saucier chose Destin

We chose this property because of the many amenities that it has to offer on site. Not only is it family oriented, it can also serve as a romantic getaway for a couple needing some special time together. If you've had a long day, you can relax in your beautiful room, on your balcony or head down to the pool side bar for a refreshing beverage. If your still full of energy and want some exciting nightlife...head on down to Harbor Walk Village and enjoy yourself shopping, dining and dancing the night away! The resort has a great restaurant if you want to stay on site. Brick and Spoon serves from 7 AM - 3 PM. At 3 PM until closing the restaurant serves from the CHIPS menu. Both have great food! The Brunch is AWESOME!!

What makes this condo unique

Stunning Sunsets From Your Balcony, Everything right at your fingertips, walking distance to many fine restaurants, Exercise Facility, Shuttle Service, Tennis, Basketball, Kids Playground, Largest Pool In Destin

Everything about this place is perfect.

  • 5 of 5

So a few months back we started looking around for a place to stay in Destin. We had come across another property they own and while talking, she let me know about this one. I went to the site, looked at the pictures, the location, and the price. All three were exactly what we were looking for! From the date that we booked until the time we arrived, Tracy was on point when it came to answering any questions we had. The day we arrived we were happy to see that the condo was even better than the pictures.

The balcony over looks the huge pool and offered plenty of room for the three of us to hang out there at night. The kitchen had plenty of space and everything we needed to cook a few meals while we were there. The master bedroom was perfect with huge windows and access to the balcony. The second bedroom was perfect for our son and he loved the huge walk in shower in his bathroom. The furniture in the living room was super comfortable and all of the TV's were new and the proper sizes for the rooms they were in. There was actually a moment that I forgot I was in Florida and started to just feel like I was at home.

While it is not on the beach, we found the shuttle service to be incredibly helpful. We were down stairs each morning and they would take us across the street. They were always on time with the pick up and drop off. The pool is where we spent most of our time to be honest. We met some great people while sitting out there. There are plenty of places to eat that are within walking distance or take the shuttle to Harbor Walk Village.

I honestly can't think of one bad thing to say about this trip, unless not staying longer counts. Fantastic owners, fantastic property, and I would refer anyone to stay there.

Absolutely loved it!

  • 5 of 5

In a nutshell we have enjoyed our stay in this unit. We have encountered an issue with internet and Tracy was very quick to respond. The condo in itself is very spacious, we had total of 5 people staying, 2 adults and 3 children, ages 6,6, and 12. The condo is very nicely decorated (modern style) with very warm tones, it was very clean. My boys shared 2nd bedroom. My daughter slept in the living room on the sleeping sofa, the sofa is a good size 2 people could fit in easily, it was also very comfortable to sleep in. Master bedroom was very good size, plenty storage room, a dresser, and closet space. The bathrooms were very clean, there were plenty of towels for all of us and more if we needed extra. The staff of the resort was very friendly and helpful when needed. The resort was very nicely decorated, the only thing I would suggest and I understand Tracy doesn't have much influence over this, but the carpets in the common area need to be updated, they look a little beat up. We only used the pool couple times, and my kids really enjoyed it. Henderson Beach is just around the corner, 2 minutes drive, we spend most of the time at the beach. I highly recommend this unit, can't wait to come back again.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for the wonderful review. I just wanted to mention that the Association of owners are purchasing the property from the developer and we are closing this month. We already have carpet picked out to replace the carpet in the main building and will also be replacing the carpet in the hallways of both towers. This will take some time, but we hope to have a lot completed by next season. The Palms will be awesome! Please come again! Tracy :)

Beautiful and comfortable condo! Very modern and well appointed.

  • 4 of 5

Overall, our family enjoyed our experience. The shuttles are great, and the kids loved the basketball court and pool area. We love this location so close to everything!

As for some constructive criticism, the grounds of this property could be maintained a little better. Also, the main pool could be heated to make swimming more enjoyable. We noticed simple things like crooked signs and dirty walkways.

Owner's Response: Thanks for your review! It's much appreciated. I just wanted to point out that we have had some issues with the developer and the HOA is trying to purchase the entire property so that we can take better care of our wonderful resort. We are in the final stages of purchase now! The pool is the largest pool in Destin and is partially heated
