OCEANIA 706 GULF FRONT 3BR/3BA

Oceania Destin Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condo, 3 Bedrooms + Other (See Description), 3 Baths, (Sleeps 6-8)

Oceania 706, 3BR/3BA gulf front condo has a welcome gift waiting for your arrival. Upon entering you will notice the floor to ceiling windows and sliding glass doors offering unobstructed panoramic views of the beautiful sunsets over the Gulf of Mexico.

Oceania Condominium is a gated condo with a private beach waiting for your footprints in the sand. Amenities include beach service, fitness room and gas grills. Owner can assist with arranging handicap wheelchair for beach use.

The large living and dining area has a wet-bar with ice maker ready for your entertaining. The kitchen has new kitchen sink and cabinets in 2013 and comes complete with and all the tools you need to prepare your favorite dishes.

The master bedroom has a wall of windows overlooking the gulf, new 47' TV, walk-in closet and the bathroom has double vanities, jacuzzi bathtub and a separate shower.

There is a 55' LCD-Flatscreen TV and Blu-Ray/DVD player in the living room and LED-Flatscreen TV and DVD players in each bedroom.

We too have found that sofa-beds are uncomfortable so sofa sheet packs are left for the two over-sized couches in the living room to allow the condo to sleep eight.

Oceania 706 is owner rental/managment. Local owner takes pride in providing our guest real luxury items including 1200 thread count linens, quality beach and bath towels and even softer (greater than one-ply) paper products. We strive to provide quality and maintained accommodations for your vacation with maintenance dates built into our calendar and owner walk-thru inspections prior to each arrival.

Most importantly we are passing along the savings in rental commission fees to you - our guest! When you book Oceania 706 you will not be charged extra for beach service, cleaning fees or processing fees!! We do not increase our rates during holiday (spring break) season.

Down payment/refund policy: We only require a $250/down payment to finalize your reservation with the balance due 15 days prior to arrival. We provide a full-refund in case of cancellation until time of arrival. We have chosen not to make money off of other peoples misfortune.

Guestbook comments from the owner
We enjoyed our stay after the rain left Sunday! The condo was very nicely furnished, and we appreciated the extras we have not experienced at other condos. We really like the Oceania and will stay there again when a three bedroom will suffice.





Thanks for making this condo experience special to us!

Warren & Suzanne Hines purchased their first vacation condo in Okaloosa County in 1976. After 35 years of being in the tow boat business Warren sold his company and they moved their residence from Kentucky to Florida in 1991.Their 'quiet' retirement did not last long with all four of their children and families following them within a few years.

Today, Warren lives in Kelly Plantation in Destin Florida.

His favorite hobby is 'restin in Destin'

Vicki Mahaney purchased this condo in 1996

In 1991 there were a lot of vacationers and not a lot of quality places for visitors to stay.

Oceania is the fourth Bennett Development we have owned condo's in. Their detail and quality in building exceed all others.

We have kept this condo for rental due to the residents of the building. Oceania consist of 71 gulf front units with only 24 actively on the rental program. We believe you too will find the privacy and quality to entice you to make this your vacation destination.

Destin is known for deep sea fishing, gorgious sunsets and shopping galore Oceania is only minutes from everything - Paradise awaits you!

WE'LL BE BACK

We'll Be Back
  • 5 of 5
If this is a duplicate review, my apologies. I had an issue earlier.

We have been coming to the area for 15 years and this is the sixth different unit we have stayed in at the Oceania, and it was the best yet.
We cook all of our breakfasts and half of our dinners in the condo and since we stay for two weeks, the kitchen and it’s furnishings are important to us. With that said, the kitchen was well stocked with glasses, plates etc. We did add 4 martini glasses to the collection, but that was only because of our personal preference. And the unit had very nice Calphalon pans which was definitely a bonus. In previous years we have had to go to Target and buy a pan because of the condition of the ones that came with a unit.
The bed linens and bath towels were as advertised, high quality. And the beach towels that were provided are also high quality and nice to have because we fly and don’t have to pack our own.
The majority of our meals are eaten on the balcony and the table is a little small, but definitely not a deal breaker.
There were a few maintenance issues while we were there but they were all addressed promptly.
Vicki was very pleasant and easy to deal with.
Highly recommended!

SPOTLESS AND NICELY EQUIPPED

  • 5 of 5
A very nice unit. Roomy, clean and well equipped. The kitchen had more that adequate cooking utensils and pans, an adequate stove/oven and a very nice refrigerator. The undercounter icemaker in the wet bar produced more ice than we could use for drinks and coolers and is a real bonus - no running out to buy ice on a daily basis. Large (50 in?) tv with HD Directv service was awesome for Masters viewing. The pool is large, warm and clean. Although we did not use them, the gas grills appeared to be in great shape and clean.

We had one small issue when I broke the bracket that held the shower wand in the master bath. Vicki was awesome and got it taken care of immediately! That certainly alleviated any of my concerns about renting direct from owners, as this was our first experience in doing so, as opposed to being in a unit that is operated by a management company.

Overall, the property is neat, clean and in excellent condition and Unit 706 is hands down the nicest unit we have ever rented.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for taking the time to leave a review. We apologize that the shower head broke during your stay. But for us it was bittersweet because it gave us an opportunity to personally meet you and your nice family and view family enjoyment in the condo. Again thank you for choosing this condo for your 2014 vacation destination and we would be honored to hear from you in the future.

THE BEST STAY AND EXPERIENCE WE HAD IN 4 YEARS AS SNOWBIRDS IN DESTIN

  • 5 of 5
This is our 4th year in Destin as « Snowbirds » but our first and not our last stay at this particular unit. From the day we came to visit the unit, to the day we reserved our stay, to the day we arrived, Vickie was always keeping us informed of the enhancements/changes she was doing in the unit.

From the day we arrived to the day we left, we really felt home. It all started with the very nice welcoming gift and personalized card that was waiting for us, the spotless unit, full equipped kitchen, comfortable beds, quality linens and towels. Vickie is only one phone call away and she is always available if you need anything. She does not judge, she’s not asking questions, she just makes things happen. You also have a maintenance team on site and they are all very pleasant and always accessible if you need them.

In addition, we need to talk about the fabulous view we have from the extra large balcony; the dolphins are making their show just for you, just in front of you!. The beach chair service is also very convenient and Vickie is also providing you with her own beach chairs, so something less to bring from home.

We could go on and on…….. However, we need to recap by saying that our experience is memorable, we enjoyed every minutes of our 4 months stay and we are leaving the place with sorrow but looking forward to next November.

Thanks Vickie for everything, you have a great place to stay and it’s a real pleasure dealing with you, see you soon!

ANOTHER GREAT SPRING BREAK!

  • 5 of 5
The condo is excellent. Up to date, fresh, clean, and well stocked for the most part. We could have used more paper products (we had to buy more toilet paper and facial tissue), and we could not locate any beach towels (thought they were provided last year). Neither would deter us from staying again. Location is awesome, with gated access from the street, and from the beach. Pool is nice and heated. Beau, the beach attendant, was very effecient and friendly. Very nice place to stay.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review and for choosing this unit for your vacation destination again. I apologize about the beach towels....you are correct they should of been there but were overlooked by the cleaning service. I appreciate your reminder which hopefully will correct this issue for our future guests. I recalled that last year you made a suggestion for luggage racks for the bedrooms which we immediately purchased and has been helpful for our other guests. We really appreciate your suggestions. Again thank you for your business and we hope to hear from you in the future.
