Outstanding Beach Get-Away
Submitted: July 9, 2012
Stayed: July 2012
We have been to Destin many times over the years and simply got tired of the traffic and chaos, so decided to try something closer to Seaside/Rosemary. There are so many great things about this area, in that it is close to Seaside so you can get the great places to eat, yet far enough away that it is more peaceful.
This Condo is outstanding! It's been very well maintained, and has all the things that make a vacation great. There were 4 of of staying there (2 adults and 2 teenagers) and there was pleanty of room for everyone to spread out and relax.
The Redfish facility is also outstanding and very well maintained, and ResortQuest was incredibly helpful. (we had an issue with the lock and they went way above and beyond to make sure we were taken care of). The gas grills are great for cooking out, just know that you may have to wait on them during some busy times. This was actually fun as we got to sit around and get to know some of the other people in the complex.
The beach is about a 5-10 min walk, which is not bad at all. You can take the shuttle, although we never really took advantage of that, as the walk was pretty nice. The beach service was fantastic. I talked to Jessie (who was amazing) the first day, and gave him our names and he had our chairs setup and ready to go each morning.
A couple of tips on places to eat: Blue Mountain Beach Creamery (across the street) is a must. Heavenly Hash is to die for. Bruno's Pizza in Seagrove has INCREDIBLE Pizza. Loads of toppings that are all fresh. Great Southern (in the square at Seaside) has a dish called "Grits a Ya Ya" that will make you change your mind about Grits. Truly delicious.
The only thing that wasnt perfect about the stay was that the balcony (which is awesome) looks out right over 30A, so when you sit out there you get the sound of cars going by. And while it faces the Gulf, you really cant see it. But considering the benefits, its really a non issue.
We look forward to coming back again in the coming years.
