"Not only had I never been to Destin, but never even to Florida. Planning this vacation nearly a year in advance, I researched at least 100 places in the area. It was narrowed down to five, then my wife (we were married a week ago on the beach at the property) and our two 17 year olds all agreed with me that this was the place. It most definitely was!
As everyone has said, Joan was great to work with and very responsive to all my questions and helped to get the info needed for my wedding. I was worried about the weather, but our week was absolutely perfect. This was far and away the best vacation any of us have ever had. We hated to leave. There were six of us total- each kid brought a friend (both 18), and the arrangements worked out great. The kids followed us down so they had a car to explore town with which allowed us to relax completely. The complex is in a great location and was actually more well-maintained than I expected. Susan was great to work with regarding the wedding, Keith was excellent with the umbrella service, and James was just a tremendous employee we all enjoyed getting to know. We became friends with all over the course of the week and they seemed genuinely and mutually sorry to see us go. Regarding parking, it was great to have the security of a garage, although my truck was not easy to park. Then again crew cab with 6.5' bed is not easy to park anywhere, but it did fit. Very convenient access to elevators which were quick to respond and only three units per floor was very nice. The views were incredible. I took photos every day as the water became calmer and clearer on a daily basis from the previous week's storms. To top it all off, even when we were back in the condo for the night, the Olympics were on continuously keeping us entertained.
Now that our kids are entering their last year before going out on their own, we hope to be able to gather again at some point and return to this very spot, although it would be hard to imagine repeating the shear bliss of the week that we had in this property. We will definitely return, but as this place would be a bit much for just the two of us, I would try to find friends or relatives to come with us so that we could stay in this marvelous place again."
