  • Location was PERFECT!!

    "From day 1, all I could really say was "staying in a house ON the beach is totally worth it!" I love the ocean, but being from a land-locked state, get a bit weary of the hassle. NO MORE dragging snorkle gear & boogie boards from a hot parking lot -and getting BACK in that car after a long day of sun, sand, & salt!! The house was great & the beach was NOT crowded - just looking down shore at the public beaches made us realize how blessed we truly were. We had our OWN section of the beach with umbrellas & chairs that DIDN'T fall over (and have to be dragged, sand encrusted, back to my vehicle!) The water was crystal-clear & gorgeous. We had 3 generations: 3 adult couples and 7 kids (8 was the youngest) - plus our Great Dane and my in-laws' Pomeranian (no dogs on the beach, in Destin, though). There was plenty of room in the common spaces, and nice bedrooms when we wanted more privacy. The small community was gated & had security, so the kids could ride bikes, go crabbing, and walk the dogs with no worries. Destin Commons was a short drive away for shopping & some Kilwin's ice cream. 🍧 Walmart, Whole Foods, and Fresh Market (yay) were all close. We were close to Destin proper, but not in the horrid city traffic. 😄 We watched dolphin many times and saw a turtle from our deck. We got to swim with rays and saw a striped burr fish one time -right there. You can rent paddle boards & kayaks 40 yards from your beach chairs, and the house garage contains many boogie boards, inflatables and 2 bikes for guests to use. The convenience is AWESOME! I can't recommend this home highly enough -especially for the price. Michael is fantastic, and will make you feel like welcomed guests to his home."

  • Beautiful home; great location

    "My family of four, including our two teens, had a wonderful time at the Elizabeth Claire condo. We have been coming to the Destin area for many years now and have stayed at several different places along Crystal Beach. This was our first time at Miramar and I will say that it was wonderful. This condo is tastefully furnished and decorated and had everything we needed for a terrific week. This condo is across the street from the beach and has great views of the gulf. We have mostly stayed at beachfront properties, so I was a little hesitant about having to cross the road to the beach. I needn't have been concerned: The people watching from the balcony was a blast, both on the road and on the bike path directly in front of the building. The condo also comes with beach service, which means two chairs and an umbrella are waiting for you every morning at the beach (get there early to choose your favorite location). I would have given this condo five stars except for three things: One: The second bedroom is rather small, with just enough room for a double bed and a dresser. My two teens found it tight quarters after parking their suitcases in there. Two: Every balcony that faced the road had two jacking posts fastened in place. It gave the appearance that the balconies needed to be stabilized and might be unsafe. The gentleman who checked us in told us that they were absolutely safe and we experienced no problems. Three: You must make a check-in and check-out appointment. Given the vagaries of Alabama traffic, it is very hard to adhere to a set appointment time. This resulted in us sitting outside our condo for 20 minutes and waiting for the gentleman to let us in, which is the LAST thing you want to do when you've just driven 700 miles. We are experienced renters and prefer an electronic door keypad (no keys to lose!) and a phone call to confirm our entry and exit. That being said, we had terrific service from Mara Lee and her team, who were prompt in answering our requests, including when the wi-fi conked out momentarily. Even with these three points, we would absolutely consider the Elizabeth Claire condo for our next Destin vacation."
