Wonderful Family Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

This condo was the PERFECT place for our family vacation! My husband and I were traveling with two young children (3YO and 18 months), and my parents. The condo accommodated us all perfectly, and was so clean and comfortable. The lazy river and pools were great for those times that we didn't feel like making the trek to the ocean. The lazy river is lit up in different colors at night, and our whole family loved ending the day going for a nighttime float. Don't forget the facilities across the street at the Ramada, though! We didn't even realize we had access to that splash pad and the "grotto" until a few days in. Our kids LOVED this area. We rented a pontoon boat and jet skis next door (the cheapest prices around and great service!), and walked to the boardwalk almost nightly for dinner and entertainment. When we wanted to mix it up, it was a very short drive into Destin to check out those sights and restaurants. We had one tiny "mishap" where a bathroom door handle got stuck, but Bill was over within 30 minutes to fix the problem. We will definitely be coming back!

Owner's Response: Hi Autumn, You have made an impressive list of all the fun things to do at our resort and a very nice endorsement for our condo and how it met your multi generational needs. You discovered the best of what we have to offer: nightly swims at the 'river', walks to the Boardwalk for dinner, Ramada Inn's grotto and splash pad plus our gorgeous ocean and the amenities on the beach side. Please do come again. We offer a return guest discount. Sherry

Stayed in Herons 506 condo and it was everything we expected. Very clean. Easy access to elevators, quite, perfect views. The bay view is great. The pool view at night is beautiful. This condo is centrally located to get where you need to go. Rented jets next door, restraunt right next door. Mcquires Irish pub restraunt-highly recommend. Bill and Shelly are so easy to work with. This was our 4th time renting from them. There units are all so clean. Definately recommend this unit as well as there other units! Know who to contact when we come back!
