About Judy Parsons

Hello. We are baby-boomers with a little piece of the beautiful white sands and the emerald waters of Destin. We have personally handled the rentals on our townhomes since 1988. So please feel at ease to enjoy the experience of renting from us and the use of our townhomes. Don and Judy Parsons

Judy Parsons purchased this townhome in 1990

Why Judy Parsons chose Southbay by the Gulf

We found our 'Home Away from Home' several years ago vacationing in Destin. We visited many places before deciding on Southbay. The complex is family-friendly and has that 'Old Florida'feeling. Just park at your door with no hassles. All the amenities of the complex are very convenient--beach, pool, tennis courts, fresh-water lake and more.

What makes this townhome unique

Unit 67 is our 3 BR poolside townhome. Please enjoy the private patio adjacent to the pool for your outdoor dining and relaxing.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We enjoyed our family time at your condo #67. We took our family including our married son, his wife and new grand daughter! We chose this unit because it was so close to the pool and easy access to the beach. With a new baby it made it so convenient to run back to our condo when needed. We ate in most nights and your kitchen had plenty of storage and items needed for making meals. The open family room/dining area was a great space for all 7 of us to hang out and play games! I also loved having a washer/dryer in the unit. This was our first time to Destin and we enjoyed the beautiful beach, mini golfing, go-carts and shopping at the outlet mall! It was a great week just being together as a family!

Fun Family Getaway

  • 5 of 5
We immensely enjoyed our stay at Unit 67 in Southbay. The unit itself was very comfortable and had all the kitchen items, pillows and bedding needed. We had 2 adults, a 17 year old, 8 and 6 year old and the bed types worked great for us. All the beds were comfortable. The owners were very easy to work with and readily available to answer questions. This unit backs up to the pool which was great after a long day at the beach the kids could jump right in for more swimming. The beach is very close maybe 2 minutes walk and that's while toting cooler, rafts etc. The rental includes 1 Umbrella and 2 chairs setup at the beach which was a great plus as we flew in and didn't have any chairs with us. The patio has a storage closet that has a charcoal grill and maybe a few leftover rafts from other renters (we left a couple there and there were some when we arrived), and there is an air hose at the pool so you can blow up any floats too! The complex has a lake that is full of turtles and you can fish too. Parking is in front of the unit so it's super easy to load and unload. We will be back (hopefully soon!)

A great choice for family fun is the Harborwalk which is about 2.5 miles away. Of course the restaurants there are pricey because it's a tourist area and you are paying for the views which are spectacular, but there are free parades, concerts, and fireworks on different nights seasonally, and they have a small midway with carnival games for the little ones and zip lines for the teens (not free of course). You can also walk along the harbor for about a mile or so and see all the boats and if you are lucky like us dolphins. Also here on the docks is Destin Snorkel which has Sunset dolphin cruises and dolphin/snorkel cruises. We did both and had a great time.

AJ's is a good choice for dinner with the kids or drinks, food and dancing later in the evening, they always have great bands and their peel and eat shrimp was way larger than at other restaurants we went to.

McGuires is a Destin favorite with dollar bills stapled all over walls and ceilings. The food is good pub fare salads, burgers steaks etc and it is always busy. Go early or be prepared for a bit of a wait (if you don't care about AC go upstairs to get a table faster)

FABULOUS location! Steps from beach, NEXT to pool. Great for families! Clean, super nice owners.

  • 5 of 5
My family of 4 plus 3 other members of our extended family recently stayed in Southbay unit 67. It has 3 bedrooms upstairs (One king, two twin, one queen/full) with one full shared and one full bathroom (surprising large) in master. With tubs! There is another half bath downstairs, as well as a full kitchen, dining area, and living area.

Kitchen is stocked with everything you may need on your stay to cook with, including dish soap and dishwasher detergent. Dishes, glasses of all kinds, a full fridge/freezer, pantry...Dining table seats 6, and there are even tablecloths and placemats in the cabinet.

Living room has a nice sofa with hide-a-bed, loveseat, and two chairs. Surprisingly comfortable. TV does have a VCR. All the channels you need.

FREE WiFi makes looking up things to do in Destin nice (and kids almost die without it these days!).

Patio out back with table and chairs. You are RIGHT NEXT to the pool. If you have kids that like to swim it makes it nice. Sometimes it is hard to pull them away from the ocean. This way you can keep an eye on dinner and them at the same time! Closet out back with floats, a grill, even charcoal!

Pool - there are 3 on property, I believe, but we only used the one next to us. Very nice. Gentleman cleaned nearly every morning. 4 to 8 feet. Bathroom is right there. Magnetic gate to keep little ones in and out! Also shallow baby pool in gate. Plenty of chairs to lounge in and tables with umbrellas. Never got noisy or crazy.

Beach is literally right across parking lot. You can see the tree line! No roads to cross. Close enough for small kids to walk. Only 3 steps down to beach for those that have trouble with steps. (Though condo is up and downstairs.) Private area for Southbay. Super nice. You can tell what a benefit this is when you glance a hundred feet down beach at the 20 floor condos, which have 20X the people using the same amount of beach! All families. Never had trouble with drunks, or loud music.

Chair set up, which is include, is super nice. Just let them know what unit you are staying in, and he will set up 2 chairs with umbrella, and detachable ottomans / tables for you each day. You can also bring a tent and set up just behind the chair line, which makes it nice for larger families.

There are wash off/shower stations everywhere it seems! Even a place to hold your shoes before you step into the sand.

HIGHLY RECOMMEND.

We spent a wonderful week in this great condo. It was as described--clean, pretty, well maintained, fully equipped, close to the beach, by the pool, etc. The location was very convenient for all activities. I would definitely recommend the property to others. My dealings with the property owner were very congenial. The beach goers in our group said it was the best beach ever--and they have been on many of the beaches in Destin. Go and have fun.

Great Beach Stay!!

  • 5 of 5
I just wanted to drop you a little e-mail and say thank you so much for the many summers that we have stayed at your Unit# 67 in Southbay Condominiums. We have had nothing but great experiences over the years. The unit is always very clean when we arrive and oftentimes we are able to check in early which makes it very nice and convenient, especially after traveling 6 hours to get there. You do a wonderful job in keeping it updated as we regularly notice changes and additions to the interior, as well as a fully stocked kitchen which comes in very handy for a group from South Louisiana who loves to do a lot of cooking and eating over the course of a week, haha. The unit is also very spacious and accommodates several families at once. We absolutely love the location as it is conveniently located in an area within a couple minutes drive from numerous stores, restaurants, etc. Unit# 67 is also right on the edge of the main pool which makes it very nice in the evenings after a long day at the beach. The new beach service that was started a couple years back with complimentary chairs has also been a great addition and one which we utilize daily. All this being said, I can’t think of another place I would rather spend my summer vacation. Destin has become a second home for many of us Cajuns who have come here for the last 25 years and is one of the most beautiful places on the Gulf Coast, and your condos are some of the most reasonably priced and accommodating as any place I have stayed. These are just a few of the many reasons we have continued to come back and plan to come back for many years. Thanks again for sharing your home away from home with us!!
