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
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.
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!
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.
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.
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.
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
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
