Me, my wife and two young daughters stayed in this condo Aug 4-9, 2014. The unit was fantastic -- very clean, updated furnishings and appliances worked flawlessly. The big screen TV in the living room got good use in the evenings when we were winding down for the day and the girls enjoyed having their own flat screen in their bedroom. The view from the balcony is exactly what the picture looks like...overlooking the upper pool and beach behind...very nice.
We stocked up at the Winn Dixie across the street the first evening we were there which allowed us to save $$ during the week on breakfast and lunches. Our Suburban fit fine in the lower garage...just be careful navigating a large vehicle in the tight spaces.
We had a pretty repeatable pattern everyday we were there. We'd start at the beach around 10 and last until lunchtime. Lunch break in the condo and then spend the afternoon by the lower pool. There's a great Tiki Hut next to that pool that serves your standard pool-type food (burgers, hot dogs, etc). My kids loved the milkshakes ($5) and my wife got a few of their daiquiris ($8)...both got great reviews ;-) I stuck to beer which we brought down from the condo in a cooler. The Tiki Hut will gladly sell you beer if you choose that route but no problems at all bringing our own down there.
As for dinners, we did Dewey Destin's one night in the Destin Harbor...good seafood...be sure to wait for a table on their upstairs patio...great view of the boats coming and going. Our favorite spot for dinner though was The Crab Trap which is west on the beach highway. Exiting Edgewater, turn left and head down about 15-20 mins...the restaurant is on the left right on the beach...can't miss it. Plus the drive to and from is nice because you pass lots of other rental properties...we saw some nice ones (Destiny by the Sea stood out).
For fun, we took the kids twice to The Track which is on the main highway towards the harbor. The Track is a really well maintained activity center that offers go-karts, putt-putt golf, bumper cars, etc. If you go before Noon, prices are 2-for-1. Our family of 4 did putt-putt and rode go-karts for under $20...can't beat that...and the girls loved it.
Only minor complaint is they're doing repair work on the condo bldg adjacent to this property. We heard some light construction noise on occasion but it never was a huge nuisance.
All in all, it was a great trip and we'd stay in this condo again in a heartbeat.
