Amazing view, very nice accomodations, convenient location

  • 5 of 5

My family and I recently stayed in the condo for our first Florida vacation. The condo was very nice and roomy, and conveniently located for visiting the local attractions. The view is breathtaking, and you are truly just steps away from the beach. We got to watch the dolphins while enjoying our morning coffee on the balcony! The owner was very gracious and easy to work with. We are planning on returning this summer.

Nice beach getaway -oceanfront balcony

  • 4 of 5

This is a nice-sized two bedroom condo right on the Gulf; with a bonus bedroom upstairs next to the loft bedroom! Bonus room has two twin beds and loft bedroom has a queen; master on lower level has a King. The porch is on the 3rd floor and we really enjoyed many hours out there, although theres no shade to be had for several hours in the afternoon on the porch.

Kitchen is small but has everything you need. There is a stackable W/D which is very handy. The tub in the master (lower) bath has jets, but when I tried them twice, they didn't turn on. I enjoyed a couple of hot baths anyway. The bedroom is very nicely decorated and the bed was comfortable. The only complaint I would have is , the design of the condo is such that when people walk by and talk on the walkway outside the front of the unit, or when they wheel the luggage rack carrier down that wakway, it will wake you up if you are in bed unless you sleep heavily.

We used the pool once (our kids more twice), and it is the cleanest pool I've ever seen. The beach is nice , mostly clean (litter here and there but hardly any), and the waters are beautiful; a blue /turquoise color. You can especially see the color of the water in the late morning and afternoon, from the balcony. The sunsets are WONDERFUL.

All in all, a great stay if short, and if we return to Destin we would definitely consider this condo again. :-)

Beautiful place to vacation!!! Great location

  • 5 of 5

Both my daughters played in the USSSA softball WORLD SERIES July 17th - July 23rd. We sought out an affordable perfect central location to the known field locations. This condo was perfect, close to stores, easy to find, beautiful beach. We have visited Florida every year in July for the last 3 years...this was the best vacation yet. I love that the condo puts out beach chairs and umbrellas each and every morning!! The condo was very clean and well kept. We had everything that we needed. We stayed in a large condo complex in Panama City beach 3 years was very hard to get in and out of (many floors - long wait for the elevator). At this complex your park, go straight the elevator, and into your waiting!!! That was a huge bonus for us. I would definitely recommend all families to this condo. We had 2 separate families ( 4 in 1 and 2 in the other) it was very accommodating and spacious. My family of 4 took the upstairs portion of the condo while the family of 2 was downstairs...we were all very comfortable. Also I can't say enough about the owner...she was great, very efficient! Great communication, I knew if I needed anything she was just a phone call or email away. Only took 5 day for my deposit to be returned by mail!! Great Vacation

WOW! Great condo! Great Location! Perfect for your stay!

  • 5 of 5

Wow! If you have been to Destin, you already know how beautiful the water is and how wonderful the beaches are, but what you don't know, is that you can find a place where it isn't slam packed crowded and that is in the middle of everything you want or need! This is that place!!! :-)

Located almost in the middle between Miramar Beach and Destin proper, this is the perfect location. There is a Publix grocery store just minutes away (always needed), there is shopping just minutes away, there are FABULOUS restaurants just minutes away! AND, all without the slam packed crowds! Yes, in real estate it is all about location, location, location, and this is the perfect location.

The is a 3rd floor condo with an elevator a very easy distance from your front door. There are luggage carts available for your use, so loading/unloading is a breeze.

This condo is perfect for a couple or a family! The kitchen is very nice and easy to do all the things you need to do. The upstairs loft (YES! there is a loft!) is perfect for your kids. They have a PS2, DVD player and nice tv all to themselves! Downstairs you have a very nice sitting area with an awesome view of the beach/water.

Sitting on the balcony in the morning with your coffee is just incredible.

Access to the beach is just a short walk from your room. Coming back, there are courtesy showers on the deck, so you can wash off the sand. Bring your umbrella, chairs and a cooler and you will have a fabulous time. If you want to get great place on the beach, do set up your gear before 7am to beat the rental beach chair people.

Access to and from the parking lot to the road is easy. No traffic jams and no kids just cruising up and down the road.

The owner of this condo is fabulous to work with. They made this too easy to do.

I seriously doubt you can find a better place than this. Between the location and price, this is a must do for anyone (Whoops! I probably shouldn't say that, because now all of y'all will book it before I can for my next visit!).

Great condo in a great location!

  • 5 of 5

The condo is spacious and has the amenities we needed. The best part was the location. Located on Scenic Highway 98, we were close to all our favorite restaurants. The beach is right out the back door which made it very convenient to be able to go back in for lunch. Very quiet area so no disturbances in the night. Definitely will be recommending to my family and friends!
