We took our family of 6 with older children and had a great time. Spent more time at pool than the gulf, but access to gulf was easy. Definite difference from bay side to gulf side, and you will want the bay side for nicer accommodations.

Very nice unit. Was disappointed when we had to run out to buy hand soap right away. Any other unit we have rented anywhere always supplied a start package with mini bars of soap, mini shampoo and starter laundry detergent. This unit had none of those.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Heron 609. The room was very clean and was stocked with pretty much all the necessities, plus some. The best part of all is the view from the room. It had an excellent view of Lazy River, but you could also see the gulf from a different area of the balcony.

Beach Lover

  • 5 of 5

This condo was absolutely BEAUTIFUL!! So comfortable for my family. Decorated beautifully and had a wonderful huge balcony with comfortable outdoor furniture. Kitchen was so well stocked. The location was the BEST! Views of the gulf and bay were unbelievable! We loved the lazy river and hot tubs and convenient location of amenities. We were able to walk to the Boardwalk and Aquarium with our family. And the beach is so private at this resort due to being connected to a 4 mile stretch to Destin with no buildings. Great for shell seekers! Management very helpful and assisted with all our needs! We will be coming back here for years!
