I live in Birmingham, AL and this is my personal vacation home. I've owned it for many years (thus my low VRBO listing number) and keep it very updated. Very private yet right in the heart of Destin (see map). Drive right up to the front door and unload your car (no elevators to deal with). Short 200 yard walk to the beach. Give me a call and I can tell you more. Patrick

Heart of Destin - convenient to new Harbor Walk restaurants, Wal-Mart, Target, WalGreens, Wynn-Dixie, Publix, Home Depot

Destin first timer

We stayed for four nights and the condo is exactly as shown on the site. It is in a great location with restaurants, grocery stores and all types of stores very close by. Patrick was great and answered all of my questions and quickly returned my deposit. It was nice having HD tv's in each room with cable. I will definetly look at renting here again on my next trip to Destin.

Only small issue was initially finding the place late at night when we first arrived. There is a second entrance to the condos that you must use. After looking again, it is mentioned in the driving from Birmingham to Destin, but coming from the west I did not initially look closely at those directions. This could easily be solved by taking a quick pic of the smaller Southbay entrance at the 950 block or so. No biggie.

Great beaches, Great place to stay, and a Great owner. Counting the days to my next stay.

Owner's Response: Hi Robert, Glad you enjoyed your stay. Thanks for the suggestion on directions. I have now added an additional note to my guest confirmation e-mail which addresses this. Patrick

Long Weekend

We stayed here for 4 nights and it is exactly how it is pictured. This condo offered a short walk through the parking lot to the beach which made it nice when you are hauling beach "stuff". The condo was very clean and supplied with kitchen and plenty of bathroom towels. The mattresses on the beds seemed to be worn out, they were uncomfortable to sleep on. However this condo provided everything we needed for our stay in Destin and it was close to everything. Would consider going back if mattresses were changed.

Owner's Response: Hi Gina,
Glad you enjoyed your stay. Thanks for your feedback. I just replaced both the queen-size mattress with new Serta extra firm mattresses. Hope you decide to stay with us again in the future! Patrick

Girls Weekend

We stayed at this beautiful townhouse for 3 nights. It was in perfect location to the beach, shopping and dining. Everyone was so polite and friendly. We all had such a wonderful time and are in talks of going back next year. I would highly recommend this rental. When you visit, try Louisiana Lagniappe or The Village Baytowne Wharf has lots of great options too.

Fantastic location

  • Submitted: Jul 10, 2013

The condo is exactly as pictured, the location is great. it is a very short walk to the beach but far enough to not hear any of the beach activities. This is my 2nd time staying at Southbay (first time at this particular condo) and I really appreciated the short walk! It stormed and rained for 4 days, we got a lot of use out of accommodations. Fourth of July fireworks weren't as great as last year (due to weather) but still amazing to be able to watch them on the beach. Target, Winn Dixie, Walgreens are across the street, very convenient considering the crazy Destin traffic that occurs the week we go.

The condo was clean, well-maintained, cozy, home like…with all of the comforts of home...dishwasher, washer, dryer, fully equipped kitchen. It is located within a short walking distance from the beach...and there is a swimming pool literately seconds from the front door. So many fun things to do nearby…Harbor Boardwalk, Big Kahuna’s Water Park, Just Chute Me (parasailing), deep sea fishing on Capt Nemo (amazing if you have children), Track Family Recreation Center. Not to mention many great places to eat…Another Broken Egg, The Pancakery, Callahan’s, Harry T’s, The Shrimp Basket, AJ’s Seafood, The Back Porch, McGuire’s Irish Pub, Rotolo’s Pizzeria…just to name a few (we do love our food). Patrick promptly answered all of our pre-rental questions and quickly returned our deposit check…?…thanks Patrick. I would definitely recommend this property to all of our family and friends.
