Breathtaking views and Comfortable Accommodations

We typically go to Hilton Head Island, SC but decided to try a new location and fell in Love with the Destin area and plan on returning in the future. We truly loved the view and being on the top floor.
The beds are Comfortable and living area as well.
We were a little disappointed in the limited view of the bay from the queen bedroom but honestly we were only in the rooms to sleep so it really was not an issue :) One thing that was frustrating and at no fault of the property owner is the swimming pool was always busy and you could never find a seat, so we only went there one day for about an hour. We got very lucky with the weather it was rainy the weeks before, beautiful sunshine our entire week, and tropical storm Debby hit the day after we left!
There is a lot to do in the area. We took the girls to Big Kaunas water park, prices reasonable and we really enjoyed. The beach is beautiful, the water was warm, but the seaweed was terrible (not sure if that is normal). One thing is we flew, so we did not have beach chairs or umbrellas packed and we found the beach rentals were very expensive, so we went down the road to Dollar General and bought 2chairs and an umbrella for a lot less. We kept the chairs and umbrellas in the condo, so if you are staying hopefully they are still in the closet :)
Destin will definitely be a new vacation spot for my husband and I and our 2 girls! We will be back!!

Owner's Response: I'm glad you enjoyed your stay in Destin! All my family lives in Hilton Head and I was married there, so I know the area very well. As I mentioned though, nothing beats the beaches of Destin. Sorry the pool was so crowded. June-August are the busiest times at the beach. Please come try to stay in May or September-October sometime. The crowds are down and the weather is perfect! Those are my favorite months to vacation in Destin! The seaweed is called June grass(that's why it was bad when you were there). It was probably worse too when you were there with the storm coming in. Please keep us in mind for your future vacation plans:)
