About The Owner

We LOVE Destin...We are Angie and Don Bennett and currently live north of Atlanta. We look forward to moving to Florida someday, but until then we visit whenever we can. Don lived in the Destin area in 1960 and we both vacationed in the area for many years until our first condo was reserved pre-construction in 1994. Since then our love of the area compelled us to invest in additional properties. Don is very active in the Destin area and is the founder of 'Community Association Presidents of the Emerald Coast' (CAPEC), an organization striving to make the Destin area even better for property owners and their guests. Don is also a member of Citizens for Healthy Beaches working to make the world's best beach even better.

The Owner purchased this condo in 1999

Why The Owner chose Destin

Leeward Key is just across Scenic Gulf Drive from the beach making it a reasonably priced property for the owner and guests. It is away from the hustle but yet close to everything desired for a wonderful vacation. Several restaurants are within walking distance. It is within a short distance to activities such as world class golf, championship sport fishing, unparalleled restaurants with European trained chefs, boutique and designer outlet shopping.

What makes this condo unique

We enjoy walks on the beach and beach side restaurants. Our visits to Destin Commons, Silver Sands Outlet Mall (the nation's largest designer outlet center), Grand Boulevard, Baytowne Wharf, HarborWalk Village... The list is endless!

nice condo

  • 4 of 5

Kitchen could use a few items, but we don't really cook on vacation, so it was fine. There are only 2 small spoons and about 4 jumbo sized spoons. All appliances work. Quiet dishwasher. Need filtered water for sink and ice maker. The water tastes like typical beach water, yuck. But this is not unusual, we bought jugs and jugs of spring water, especially for coffee. Don't recommend using the tap for your coffee, very bad. The ice maker produces some bad tasting brownish colored ice, but we always buy our own ice, too. Also to be expected at the beach unless filters are used. There is a Brita water pitcher here, but no filter in it, so it was rendered useless. Washer dryer fine, not full sized, but works great for 2 people, and works great. These aren't turnoffs for us, just an honest review. Master br mattress squeaks a bit and is a very soft mattress, so if you like soft, this is for you. 2nd bedroom king mattress, firm and actually nicer, probably slept on less. 2 nice, large bathrooms with double sinks. Average water pressure from showers, not strong, but acceptable. Three VERY nice Vizio flat screen tvs. Have notified the realty company that the universal remotes for the tvs are outdated. 1 of the 3 remotes works, the other 2 cannot be programmed, we tried for hours. We bought a new universal remote at Publix for around $8.00. Was able to program it in about 2 minutes and it is fast, works great. So, hopefully they'll replace the 2 non working ones, or just bring your own and program it. My husband is a tv person, therefore remote was important to him. The view is pretty. Painters were working right on our balcony during our stay, so ropes were dangling the whole week, front entrance to building was locked and front yard was roped off. Would have been nice to have this information in advance so that we could have stayed elsewhere, but the little painter was friendly and cute. The company was very generous in allowing for us to bring 2 pets. We ended up just bringing one dog, but we very much appreciated that they were going to allow us to bring a second pet with no additional fees. The beachside pool is nice, nice bathrooms right next to pool, and pool is heated. Very nice balcony furniture, above average. If you sit at the back of the balcony, you cannot see the road or traffic. Beautiful sunrise AND sunset view from balcony and non opening window in master bedroom. Beautiful and functional furnishings, lovely tile floors throughout, above average.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review. We always like receiving reviews from guest for several reasons. By far, most of the reviews we receive are very positive and guests tell us how much they enjoyed staying in one of our condos. Reviews also point out things to us that are not visible by an inspection of the condo. You must stay in the condo for a period of time to be aware of an issue before it can be corrected. Also they allow us to clarify for that guest or to give an explanation. Our local manager is currently checking with the current guest about the silverware and will be replacing all that is needed to make a complete set. Brown ice was mentioned. We checked with the next guest who will be staying a couple of months and they said they have not noticed a problem with the water or the ice but would let us know if problems did occur. We do not know of any condos that have filtered water for the sink or ice maker. We have never had a complaint about brown ice so it must have been a temporary situation with the water system but there was not any public warning about a problem. If it was it must have been a temporary issue that the public water system has resolved. The condo has stacked washer and dryer to conserve space as was in the building original design. The washing machine and dryer are large capacity but not extra-large capacity and quite adequate for most vacationers. The mattress in the master bedroom is a new pillow top. The mattress in the guest bedroom is not very old and this is the first we have heard about the mattresses. The TV remotes are not inspected between renters so we must rely on feedback to know there is a problem. Our local manager offered to bring two new remotes but the offer was declined. New remotes were put in the condo when it was cleaned. When condo building are painted, and it must be done, it is done during the slow season. We do not always receive notification when it will affect a certain condo or group of condos in the building. We do appreciate your positive comments about “Beautiful and functional furnishings, lovely tile floors throughout, above average.” Also, “Very nice balcony furniture, above average.” We are very glad that you enjoyed the heated beachside pool. Also glad that you appreciated our local managers allowing pets. As you probably know there are very few properties in Destin that allow guests to have pets. We hope you will chose to stay with us when you plan your next visit to Destin.

Great Week!

  • 5 of 5

What a great time. The condo was clean and furnished with everything you need. What an awesome unobstructed view out the master bedroom and balcony. You can step out your front door of the condo and see the other side too if you'd like. Great restaurants within walking distance; great beach. Loved having the pool right next to the beach. We have kids ages 3, 6, and 8. They loved it. Went to Baytowne Wharf where Emeril has visited on the cooking channel. Went to boogies and used waverunners, went to big kahunas water park, went to the track and had the kids drive their own go karts. On the 4th of July the entire beach is lit up with fireworks displays. Thanks for a great vacation and great time.

Owner's Response: We very much appreciate you staying with us and for your review. Reviews give potential guests a prior guest’s evaluation of the condo, property and things to do while visiting the property. Destin has so much to offer in addition to the very best beach with sugar white sand (quartz crystals) and clear water. It has hundreds of great restaurants, shopping (Destin Commons and Silver Sands Premium Outlets), many things to entertain the kids as you mentioned and also the kid in us with Baytowne Wharf, and HarborWalk Village. Also many excellent golf courses and the largest sport fishing fleet in Florida

Wonderful pet friendly accommodations.

  • 5 of 5

We had never stayed in this area of Destin before but were looking for a nice pet friendly place and all were in this general area. After staying here I think this is the nicest part of the beach. Less crowded, easier to get around, walking distance to Captain Daves, Pompano Joes, Crab Trap, and Kenny D's. Facilities were well maintained and clean. Easy walk to beach with chairs and umbrella provided. The accommodations were top notch and the ocean view was magnificent -- could watch sunsets from the balcony at the time of year we were there (October). I would highly recommend this property. Thanks to the owners and rental company for their excellent service.

Owner's Response: As the owners we very much appreciate you staying with us and for your review of our condo. You are correct about the location being very easy to get to so many great places to eat. This location is also convenient to Silver Sands Premium Outlet Mall. October is a great time to be in Destin (we are currently in Destin ourselves and love the fall in Destin). As you know there are very few pet friendly properties in Destin and that being the case we as the owners and our rental company try to make you stay a very enjoyable one in Destin. We hope you will chose to stay with us when you return to Destin. Thank you! Don and Angie

beautiful view of the gulf

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time! Could not of had a more beautiful view of the gulf. My husband was not to thrilled about vacationing at the beach. Funny how I could not get him out from under the umbrella at the beach. There was a nice breeze that just put him to sleep. Leeward Key's location is perfect for families. We will be visting again!

Thanks, From Mauriceville TX

Owner's Response: We LOVE hearing from our guests that they enjoyed their stay in our condo. Receiving such nice reviews makes all the efforts of keeping a property in great shape worthwhile. The view of the Gulf from the condo is indeed beautiful. It is amazing how relaxing it can be observing the Gulf from the comfort of an umbrella. We look forward to you and your husband visiting with us again. Don & Angie

Helping Me through a Cold Winter

  • 5 of 5

Renee and Laura,

We had a wonderful time from July 10 to July 17 at the Leeward Key 804. It was a beautiful condo and the beach and water were unbelievably clean, warm, and clear. I talked with both of you at different times before we came and you gave me confidence that we should go to Destin. It was a great week and we are so happy that we did. Thank you so much and the beach memories I have will help me get through a cold Indiana winter coming up. Lee

Owner's Response: Lee, thank you for visiting Destin and staying in our condo. Also thanks to Renee and Laura for taking good care of our guests. Destin was spared by the oil spill and therefore the beach and water were as unbelievably clean, warm, and clear as always. Thanks also for your complementing our condo. We are very glad that you stayed with us and that you had a great week. Hopefully your warm memories of Destin, the beach and our condo will help you through the cold Indiana winter until you can visit with us again. Don & Angie
