About BILL TUMLIN & GRACE ELLIS

My husband and I purchased this condominium in 2004 to share with our children and grandchildren. Our grandchildren play for hours on the beach and we never get tired of the beautiful sunsets, sugar white sand and emerald green waters found in Destin, Florida.

Okay but didn't meet expectations

  • 3 of 5

The location and views from the balcony were great! Thoroughly enjoyed the beach and pools. I don't typically complain, but a few things should be addressed. First thing we noticed was the smell. Kinda musty, couldn't quite pinpoint it, but we got used to it. Next were the chips in the paint on the walls throughout the condo. Not a huge deal, but for a "newly decorated" condo I didn't expect to see so many nicks in the paint. During one of my various nightly trips to the restroom as a pregnant woman, I found a dark spot on the floor that moved. Kicked on the lights to discover it was a large Florida cockroach, which was never sited again but creeped me out nonetheless. Nothing could have prepared us for the jet engine powered washer and dryer! Seriously, this thing was so incredibly loud. We learned very quickly to run it during the day while we were out; good luck hearing the tv or getting to sleep with this thing on. Finally, the kitchen had everything we needed, except for a pizza cutter. Overall, I was expecting a nicer, better maintained condo for the price.

Owner's Response: Hey Jessica, We are thrilled that you loved the location of our condo and views from the balcony. We agree..they are "great". We are pleased that you enjoyed the beach and pools. Regarding the insect that you found, our condo and the entire complex for that matter are routinely treated as a part of the HOA. I am so sorry for the night time surprise. You may have noticed with many of our 5 star reviews that we keep our condo upgraded and well maintained throughout the year. I am sure the musty smell was due to the Gulf salt air as this is common. I apologize for the nicks in the paint on the walls especially in the bunk room. Since your notifying us of the paint, we immediately had this issue fixed. Again, I apologize that you found the washer and dryer noise so annoying. This is the first complaint that we have received, but we did have it serviced. Glad the kitchen had everything that you needed and we have replaced the missing pizza cutter. Thank you again for booking with us and for your detailed review. Regards, Grace /Shelley's Vacation Favorites

This was truly a great place! Exactly what the pictures showed. It was a short walk to the beach.

  • 5 of 5

This was a great place! Very close to the beach and all the great places to walk to eat. We loved the chairs at the beach everyday waiting for us. I loved having a washer and drying in the condo! That came in handy. I would recommend this place to anyone looking for a great time at the beach!!

Floating Lazy river is very unique amenity that the entire family will enjoy. The Kid's splash park will make kids feel as if they were at a water park.
