Overview

Destin Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condo, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 3 Baths, (Sleeps 8-10)

The Empress Unit 601 embodies all that it implies: luxurious furnishings, spectacular accessories, balconies with sweeping Gulf AND Lake views -- in short, 2600 sq ft of breathtaking elegance. This unit is truly one of the largest, most beautiful and best located condos in Destin. JUST FRESHLY RENOVATED. This amazing 3BR/3BA 6th floor unit with a spacious floor plan offers unparalleled views of the Gulf of Mexico, lake, and golf course from virtually anywhere in the Condo. Unobstructed views to the east and west from the Gulf front balcony provide gorgeous sunrise for that morning coffee and spectacular sunsets as you sip on an evening cocktail. Please note that this condo is rented out on a 7-night basis (Sat-Sat).

Creamy earth tones welcome you to the lap of luxury, where each bedroom has the utmost privacy and the best views in town. This open floor plan condo is tiled with large luxurious travertine throughout the foyer, living room, bathrooms and kitchen. There is a full wet bar in the living room, complete with beautiful wine, martini, beer and margarita glasses for your enjoyment. There is a sound system throughout the unit, including speakers on the balcony! The high-end dining table seats 8-10 comfortably. There is also a cozy sitting area adjacent to the dining room with a gas fireplace for those cool winter evenings. The Kitchen and Bathrooms have just been renovated with granite countertops, stainless steel appliances (including a double over and french door refrigerator), vessel sinks, heated Jacuzzi and rainfall shower-head!

3BR: This unit has TWO gorgeous master bedrooms with king beds - each with its own private spa like bath and balcony overlooking the Gulf. A third bedroom has two double beds and a huge window with a stunning view of the lake. An additional sleeper sofa is located in the living room.

Large tiled balconies facing BOTH the front and rear with ample comfortable seating provide a place for sunbathing, reading, dining or just enjoying the view. There is an electric grill on the lakeside balcony for those evening barbecues and a trash chute so you don’t have to leave the condo!

This spectacular condo is professionally decorated and has all the comforts of home, including a state of the art kitchen, laundry, four flat screen televisions with DVD players, and high speed wifi internet. The main TV also has a HD converter. Ipod docking cables allow you to immerse the entire unit with your musical taste. We also have movies for the whole family and games for your children. You will not find a more luxurious and spacious condo than this one!

The Empress is a private gated property with only 44 units, semi-private elevators, private reserved parking, its own pool, and a beautifully renovated new lobby. Stroll along the beach boardwalk. Enjoy nearby tennis, golf , cycling- and check out The Whale's Tail or our favorite Pompano's Joe, where you can play a pick-up game of volleyball or enjoy breakfast, lunch or dinner within feet of the Gulf. The Silver Sands Outlet Mall is less than a five minute drive to the east; Destin Commons is four miles to the west. Baytowne Wharf (in Sandestin) is only 10 minutes away. Baytowne Wharf, designed to look like a quaint village with winding water, offers restaurants, shops, free outdoor concerts, lots of activities for children and a nightlife for adults. Nearby Grand Boulevard has some of the best dining in the region.

Reviewer Comments:
This condo is not only very large, but the renovations are great. Very nice kitchen, baths, having 2 masters was awesome. The 3rd bedroom was back by itself which was great for our son. Two huge balconies. Practically a private elevator that is just steps from your parking space. Very quiet building. Highly recommend.

Luxury in Destin

  • 4 of 5
Reviewing the pictures in the listing sold us on renting the property, but when we arrived it was much more beautiful and the view was breath-taking. We enjoyed parasailing, shopping, and eating. Our favorite resturants were Tuscany (Italian), AJ's and The Back Porch. The condo was perfectly located for shopping....right between a couple of shopping areas. We felt the cleanliness of the unit could have been better, but understand the length of time the cleaning service has between guest arrivals is not very long. Overall, we would rent it again.

Great Destin Location

  • 5 of 5
This condo is an extremely large and beautifully decorated property with great views of the Gulf and views of a golf course and lake on the other side. An exceptional feature was the fact that all three bedrooms had great views - no one was stuck in a "tunnel" condo where the only view is from the living room and/or master bedroom. I loved the soothing neutral tones in the condo. It is conveniently located to restaurants, beach, and coffee shop. A favorite restaurant was The Back Porch. I would recommend this condo to anyone vacationing in the area.

Quiet, Classy, Private, Exclusive, & Absolutely Stunning!!

Quiet, Classy, Private, Exclusive, & Absolutely Stunning!!
  • 5 of 5
For the second time, my family and I have rented this unit for our annual vacation and I have to say, once again, the unit took my breath away! I had almost forgotten how exquisite the unit actually was. Not only is the unit spacious, beautiful, and cozy but the panoramic views of the ocean, bay and lake are breathtaking. The north view of the unit has a large balcony overlooking the Seascape Resort Lake and golf course with views of the bay in the distance. The south view is that of the ocean with a balcony that stretches the entire length of the condo. The master suite, second master suite, and living room all have sliding glass doors with access to semi-private areas of the balcony. The balcony does not section off by room however, three sets of couples could all enjoy the balcony on a fairly private level. Both master bedrooms are large and one can enjoy gulf front views upon wakening in the morning! This particular unit at the Empress is well worth the weekly rate, you will NOT find a better unit for the price. The condo is located in the heart of Miramar Beach with close access to excellent fine dining on and off the beach, a large higher end outlet mall, pharmacies, local boutiques and souvenir shops! You will not have to venture far to enjoy the recreational activities in Destin!! We enjoyed wave runners, a sunset dolphin cruise, and I was even able to parasail over the Empress, which was quite impressive!!

You have to see to believe!

  • 5 of 5
We have stayed in this condo 3 times now and will never look for another one anywhere else in Destin. The Empress itself is a great location with easy parking and elevator service as well as quick access to Winn Dixie, Dollar General and Walgreens or CVS. This unit is unbelievable-it makes me feel like I am in a New York City penthouse. Getting to the beach is as easy as you will find in this area and unlike many other buildings close by is not as crowded. Someone earlier said it best...Empress is a well kept secret.
