"For starters, I almost gave a 5-star rating, considering the location and price. This condo served the five of us very well during our week on the beach. I would stay there again. We have been visiting Destin yearly for 20 years, and this location has the best best beach area of any other rental we've had.
The cons: There were some obvious signs of wear and tear, but that is to be expected. Also, the water pressure was not ideal, but that is not the owner's fault. Still, it was sufficient to rinse the shampoo from our hair. Also, the couch was NOT comfortable, and a peak beneath the cushions reveals the problem... the cushions sit atop a piece of plywood.
The pros: It was CLEAN! Enough said about that! This 11th floor condo offers a great view of the emerald waters of Destin. I like the view from the kitchen... from that height you're looking straight out at the water, no vacationers to impose on your serenity. And I liked that the balcony is accessible from the master bedroom as well as from the living room. Some condos do not offer that convenience. Bring your binoculars to watch the dolphins from the balcony... we even saw a huge manatee swimming right along the beach! It is very convenient to cross the busy main street to access a pharmacy, grocery store, etc., allowing for quick trips for needed items. We ate breakfast and lunch in the room each day and hit the restaurants at night. The kitchen had more than everything we needed to prepare meals.
We could have paid $1000 more (and higher) for a place that MIGHT have been a little better, but overall we were very satisfied. But it's not all just about the room, and the location of this condo is hard to beat!"
