We rented this condo the first week in October, 2013. The condo was clean, well stocked, comfortable, and the view can't be beat. Rental process was easy. Highly recommended.
As far as restaurants, Pompano Joes was good. Get there early! La Paz Mexican was also very good, probably the best place that we at in in Destin. Joe's Crab Shack was OK, just not as good as the others.
