About Jackie Wolf

My husband and I are retired and live in Wisconsin. Poolside Villas in Destin is our home 6 months out of the year.

Jackie Wolf purchased this condo in 2015

Why Jackie Wolf chose Destin

The Destin area has been our vacation destination for more that 12 years. We love the beautiful Gulf of Mexico with the emerald green waters. We were drawn to this particular beach area to enjoy the jetties and the calm waters. Also, we enjoy the convenient access to the surf on the Gulf.

What makes this condo unique

Gated access to the parking lot. Walk directly onto the sand from the pool area on the property. No roads to cross.

The decor was beautiful and the layout of the condo was perfect for us.

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay! We enjoyed this property because it was in a quiet part of Destin, while still being close to everything we needed. The beach had great snorkeling within walking distance, and was a nice calm beach for our small children. We would definitely stay here again!

The property is really nice

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at Poolside Villa's before and have really enjoyed our stays. We stayed in 108 this time and it was very nice and well supplied. I would recommend this location and will stay there again.

1st floor treasure

  • 5 of 5

The property was clean, well maintained, and secure with it's entry/exit gates. The condo we rented was also clean and well appointed. We really appreciated the fact that it was a 1st floor condo with the balcony facing the parking lot with stepping-stones, which made unloading all our fishing equipment a breeze. We were just 30 steps from the complex pool and about a half a block from the gulf and the popular snorkeling inlet by the jetties.

We would definitely stay at this complex again and Condo 108.

Very Pleased!!

  • 5 of 5

The condo was very nicely equipped and decorated. You have 2 options for the beach. One side had great waves, dolphin viewing, and lots of shells. The other side had more relaxed waves. The beach was not crowded at all. There is a handicap accessible bathroom.

Could have been upfront about pets and the active construction, disappointing to say the Least...

  • 1 of 5

We arrived at the condo to find caution tape closing the parking space and entrance to the back sliding doors, where a 30'ft construction dumpster was parked and a pot-a-potty on the parking space adjacent to the master bedroom window. When we got into the condo, there was a very strong pet odor. This was very upsetting and disappointing due to the fact that the condo was listed as" no pets and no smoking. " There was dog hair all over the furniture and the beds. Our kids are very allergic to pet dander. They got all stuffed up; we opened all the windows in attempts to air the unit out but the smell still lingered through out our stay, we spent the first evening trying to clean up as much dog hair as we could. The next morning I notified the owner with pictures of the dog hair that was under the beds and throughout the house to show her the condition of the condo. She called the cleaning service and they dispatched to clean the unit. The cleaning lady showed up and we had to leave the condo so that she could clean. She said that there was a no pet policy but that the dog(s) belonged to the owner. Our cleaning fee was refunded, however, it would have been nice to know in advance that there are pets that stay or visit the unit and also that there was major roof construction ongoing.

Owner's Response: I am so sorry that your stay was so disappointing. I'm also very embarassed and disappointed in our service. The condo was supposed to have a deep cleaning before your arrival to remove any pet hair or dander. The cleaner assigned to our unit didn't do an acceptable cleaning and will not be servicing our condo in the future. I wasn't aware of the dumpster and portable toilet were set up in front of our condo. The roof work was supposed to be completed a week before your arrival. The association plans to address future construction timing and setup. Again I apologize for your experience. Jackie
