Once we got in and settled we were able to discover lots of amenities in the surrounding area of Destin, FL. It is close to a grocery store, Target, gym, dry cleaners and a lot of restaurants. There was an outdoor mall area not far away and was close to a beach, however I didn't go to the beach near the townhouse. The only issue was there is a slip in the back to park a boat, but the neighbor had his boat there and we weren't able to park a pontoon boat that we rented for the day. You can also park only 4 vehicles in the driveway so if you plan on having a party they need to park on the street (which there were no spots to park on the street). The townhouse looked just like the photos there was items inside to keep things clean, but some of the stuff we had to get at the grocery store i.e. propane, laundry detergent, dishwasher soap, paper towels and napkins. All the cooking utensils, pots, pans, plates and bowls were there. The outdoor patio was a lot of fun and looked just like the photos we spent a lot of time out there. I would recommend getting a citronella candle if your not used to the mosquitoes.
