About VRBO #

I have been an owner for over 20 years and I love it just as much now as I did when I bought it. If you read my guest book when you go to my condo, I'm sure you will find out that many people have enjoyed it as much as my family and I have..

VRBO # purchased this condo in 1998

Why VRBO # chose Destin

I started vacationing in Destin in 1983 and absolutely fell in love with it. In 1986, I decided I wanted my own place in Silver Dunes.

What makes this condo unique

It is the most beautiful white beach of any place on earth and the gulf is the most gorgeous shades of blue you could ever see.

Spring Break

  • 5 of 5
This condo was absolutely wonderful! The pictures do not do it justice! My family and I enjoyed our stay there that we are already planning for next year. I've stayed at Silver Dunes before in a different building (the buildings closet to the beach) but found that this condo was nicer and larger. It was the end of March so the weather was a little on the cooler side but we had the heated pool just below us so we were in that most of the time. I was highly recommend rented from Susie. She is great to work with and hassle free! She made everything easy to deal with which made our family vacation that much more enjoyable. Thank you Susie for allowing us to stay at your lovely place!

My family and I enjoyed the week here. Everything was just as described, and it was very nice to be only a few steps away from the pool and the beach! George was always there to lend a helping hand on the beach even when we brought our own chairs and umbrella! Would return in a heartbeat!

Great Time!

  • 5 of 5
Really nice! My family found a really clean, well furnished condo. We had a great time. The TV in the master bedroom did not work. It didn't matter. We watched the U K Wildcats win the National Championship in the living room! George is great on the beach, he is a fount of information.

Prefect Destin Vacation Spot!

  • 5 of 5
Thank you for letting us use your beautiful condo. It has all the comforts of home . The furnishings were up to date and and quite comfortable. The white sand on the beach reminds me of being in the Carribean and had all the amenities you could ask for. It was quite the deal compared to renting from the front office. Our whole family had a wonderful time and we hope to be back next year!

PS: George "the beach guy" is a hoot!

Property Review

  • 3 of 5
Condo is an older, but nice 2BR condo on the second floor. There is mold on the cieling above the master BR tub/shower. The mattress in the master BR is worn out. We flipped it, and turned it all sorts of ways, always rolling to the middle of the mattress. Other areas in the condo are ok. From the second BR you can hear a lot of traffic noise thru the night. Can't fix that in any way. I'm certain the minor problems can and will be taken care of very soon. Views of the gulf are narrowed by other buildings on the property, but relatively nice. This condo is about 300 yards from the water. WI-Fi is a disgustingly poor signal, and can't be used with any reliability. There is one ethernet cable in the condo that has decent connectivity. I would rent this property again as long as the two problems mentioned earlier were taken care of. My biggest problem, and the reason I wouldn't return to Silver Dunes is because of how the entire property is managed. This facillity is one BIG Noise generator. The dumpster truck is allowed onto the property, usually on Monday's, and at anytime of the morning between 0545 and 0730. This was the same with the neighboring properties and for about 1/2 hour you could hear trucks up and down the beach emptying dumpsters. Roofers were there replacing the roof on other buildings. Roofing employees came onto the property anytime they wanted usually about 0615 each day. Each morning they could be heard outside the condo BS'ing. Roofers were allowed to use ALL the tools of their trade throughout the day into the evening hours. Roofers also left nails and screws in the driveway causing me to have a flat tire. When explaining the situation to the office staff, I felt little would be done to keep that from happening again. I didn't see the roofers doing a good police call on the driveway and parking area after that. The pool is not heated in the winter until Nov 20, but still way too cold for these old bones. Finally, the water was turned off, i guess to the entire property, with no warning given. The water was off for about two hours. We got thru this ok, but can't imagine why we weren't told about this. There was only two other condo's occupied at the time. Again, this property is poorly managed with little thought given to the customer. I'm just happy I don't own property there. I imagine Silver Dunes can get a customer once, but rarely a second time. Such is my case.

Owner's Response: I was just reading the reviews I received this year and you were the only guest that gave me a negative review. I was almost afraid it would hurt my future bookings but, I'm pleased to say that I had it rented every week this past summer and several have already reserved it for next year. I have painted the bathroom and gotten new mattress and box springs for master bedroom. The mold you referred to was very easily washed off and was not a concern for other renters. However, it is extremely important that the exhaust fan be kept running during baths and showers or the moisture can build up and form mold. The condo had also been closed up for several days before you arrived and I had not had the cleaning staff go back to check the unit. Since you were there for a whole month, it would have been so much nicer if you would have notified me personally rather than posting it on the internet for the whole world to read. Even with your extremely negative review, I was thrilled to have had a very successful year.
