About the property

Condo, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 3 Baths, (Sleeps 6-8)

The Empress, truly one of the most beautiful and best located Condos on Scenic 98. The 1900+ s.f. floor plan provides spectacular views of the Gulf, lake and golf course from virtually anywhere in the Condo. Unobstructed views to the east and west from the Gulf front balcony provide sunsets that will make the evenings rival the days on the beach for the best part of your vacation.

Large tiled balconies on the front and rear provide ample room for sunbathing, reading, dining or just enjoying the view. The master bedroom and king guest room open to the balcony overlooking the Gulf.

Large living area in the rear easily seats eight people and overlooks the lake and golf course, while the front sitting area overlooks the gulf with intimate seating for two or more. The Condo is professionally decorated and has all the comforts of home, including fully equipped kitchen, laundry, four televisions with DVD players, and high speed internet.

The spacious master bath features double vanities, a whirlpool tub and separate shower. Both of the guest bathrooms feature double vanities and either a tub/shower combination or walk in shower.

Full size crib in the condo.

For those that want to stay in touch while on vaction, the third bedroom has a large desk area with high-speed Internet access.

The Empress is a gated property with only 44 units, two elevators, garage parking, its own pool, hot tub and exercise room.

Free daily beach chairs/umbrella setup included in rental.

If you are not convinced our condo at the Empress will provide everything you want in a beach front vacation, just take a look at the pictures and imagine yourself there.

Why Memorie Stofferahn chose Scenic Gulf Drive East

We looked at many properties before buying #803 at the Empress. But, all it took was for us to step out onto the balcony and see the spectacular views and we were sold on this condo. I think the property size, location, and of course the beach, makes the Empress a perfect spot to spend your vacation, or hopefully in our case, our retirement.

The best condo EVER!

  • 5 of 5

My husband, son, daughter and I drove in from Cincinnati for our first vacation in Destin. We were so excited, and we certainly were not disappointed with this condo. It was soooo comfortable, and well furnished. We needed not one extra thing. The TV's and comfortable furniture, the great beds and roomy bathrooms and closets. The beautiful views from the balconies, the elevator stopping at the door, the pool we had to ourselves most evenings, the beach chair and umbrella set up, the indoor parking space, right across the street from the beach.... you just can't ask for more. Such a beautiful condo and beach! We will certainly come back again, and I would't dream of staying anywhere else. Memorie and Stan were so helpful with everything. It was a truly wonderful vacation and we made some great memories. Thank you for sharing your beautiful home with us.

I highly recommend this condo!

Wonderful Vacation Spot

  • 5 of 5

This was our first family vaction to Destin and this condo was perfect. The location was great. We had 2 3 year olds and a 9 month old and the seperate living areas worked very well for us. I loved that the elevator stopped right at our door. The chair rental that was included was wonderful. We are already planning our trip for next year. We will definalty book this condo again.

The condo is spectacular!!! This is the 3rd year I have stayed in the condo and I can never get enough of it. The 2 friends I travelled with also stayed last year and they didn't want to try any other place either. The accomodations are wonderful and so comfortable. We could be in different parts of the condo reading, watching tv or just napping and not know the others were around. It was so relaxing and we had everything we needed. The view is breathtaking!!!!! Even though the weather wasn't so great and the water had a lot of seaweed, we enjoyed being in the condo on the front deck and watching the storms roll in from the ocean and just relaxing in the quiet. The free beach umbrella and chairs were a nice perk as well. The pool was a nice place to cool off and the view from the back of the condo is just as nice as the view from the front!!!! We are already talking about going back again for another girls week next year!!! The owners are great to work with and are so friendly. Thanks again for another great girls week in your beautiful condo!!!!!

Awesome condo

  • 5 of 5

Been vacationing in Destin for 10 years and this is the best condo we've stayed in. It's luxurious, spacious, clean and has awesome views on both balconies.

The lazy susan in the middle of the kitchen table made family dinners so convient.

Really enjoyed the beach chair set up daily that Memorie offers.

Liked how you were walking distance to shops and restaurants.

Keyless entry is a plus, no need to keep track of keys.

The pool and hot tub was nice by the lake didn't feel like you were in the parking lot with all those palm trees.

This was the first time I rented by owner, Memorie was wonderful to work with.

We found our home away from home in paradise.

Thanks Memorie for sharing your condo!

Fabulous Condo

  • 5 of 5

My family and I just returned from a week's vacation at this wonderful condo on the beach in Destin FL.

Since the beginning of searching for a place to stay, booking the condo and many questions along the way, Memorie has been more than enjoyable to work with. She has always returned my emails promptly and with great kindness.

This condo is wonderful. We enjoyed this gated condo community, especially having our own parking spot in the garage, which is just steps from the elevator. The proximity of everything was really nice.

I personally took advantage of the exercise room at the Empress and thought it was very nice that they offered that. The pool was quiet and relaxing and we enjoyed the setting of it back by the water.

The view that this 8th floor condo offered of the Gulf of Mexico was superb. The water and beach here are absolutely stunning. Sand like powdered sugar, bright clear blue water and a clean beach.

The chair service that Memorie offers with the condo rental was fantastic. We enjoyed having our chairs and umbrella set up for us every morning.

All 3 bedrooms and bathrooms are really functional and all have big windows with great views. And we love the two living rooms that this condo offers as well. Plenty of room for everyone to spread out and relax inside. The round dining room table is a great for family meals. Really liked that better than a rectangle table.

The furnishings in this condo are wonderful, décor is tasteful and we really felt at home here. We are already planning to come back in 2014 for another vacation.

Thank you Memorie for allowing us to enjoy your piece of paradise!
