Nice condo

  • 4 of 5

The condo was renovated nicely. It was hard to drive to the beach as there is no direct access by car without having to get on the main road. It's a short walk for adults, but not ideal with small children and carrying the stuff you need for the beach. All of the bedrooms are upstairs and it is MUCH warmer upstairs because there is only one unit for the condo. It is uncomfortable for sleeping. I also think that it should be mentioned that the only "on suite" bathroom is in the bunk room. It's odd to not have a bathroom attached to an adult bedroom. It was clean and stocked with all we needed. Location was great and the complex is nice. We did enjoy our stay.

Owner's Response: Dear Jennifer, We appreciate your positive feedback on the new renovation, the ample amenities, and prime location of this unit. I'm sorry you might have missed it in the listing and check-in instructions but there is actually an easy car access just two blocks to the beach from the complex that has parking that is first come first serve. As for the temperature in the upstairs within the last month, that unit has been outfitted with a brand new AC system and dryer vent and regular inspections are done monthly. We really hope to see you for your next vacation.

Not impressed with the service

  • 1 of 5

We arrived on saturday to a hot place we called to report it and nobody came out till Wednesday late morning. We then come home to them having turned on the heater taking all night to cool off. Then Thursday night the power goes out from @ 1am ish till almost 530am. So overall we payed for a vacation with no AC and office never called to update or check on us ... Wasn't pleased at all

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your constructive feedback we always appreciate communication between guest and host so that issues like these can be taken care of. We are so sorry for the air conditioning issues that you experienced during your vacation. We do monthly AC maintenance on every rental to prevent issues like this, but unfortunately, this is not fool proof. The Guest called Sunday at 1 PM to let us know the AC was not cooling properly upstairs. We immediately sent a technician to the home to assess the problem and were told the AC was going to need to be replaced. The tech topped off the freon to last until the AC could be replaced and the unit was cooling again. We were in close communication with the guest about the repairs and even made arrangements to get it replaced while they were at the ballpark(for a tournament). We pride ourselves on our communication and feel this review is an inaccurate representation of the facts as they happened. We promptly replaced an AC in mid-July with only a few hours of downtime. We strive for perfection, but sometimes fall short. Nonetheless, we always ensure that someone is on call to address emergencies 24/7/365 for our guest's needs. We hope you give us another chance, as this happens only once every 10 years and we guarantee satisfaction on any future stays. God Bless <3 Live the Gulf Coast Family

Looks are deceiving

  • 2 of 5

I was so excited to stay at this condo. From the pictures, this vacation home looked so nice, clean, and updated. The condo was in fact beautifully renovated, but it was a lot smaller than the pictures made it look. For the price though, I didn't mind it. What I did mind, however, was the lack of A/C. The downstairs remained around 76-80 the entire trip, and the upstairs got up to 90 degrees. The hose was also disconnected from the dryer, so when clothes were dried, the condo heated up even more. I notified management about the issue and they said they would send someone out the next day--no one ever came. Not only was this causing it to heat up even more, it was a fire hazard. The kitchen was beautiful and the layout really worked for me, but none of the outlets along the sink worked. The beach was quite a distance away--about a 10 minute walk, but for the price of the condo it was great. We had five kids ages 1-7, and it wasn't a problem for us.

Owner's Response: Dear Brandi, Thank you so much for your constructive feedback we believe this unit is perfect for a family trip that offers a unique vacation experience. I am so sorry about the issues you encountered while on vacation, we strive to make sure our guest experience is one people remember in a positive light. We have since replaced the A/C unit in this condo and fixed the dryer. The follow up on the AC tech issue was on the management side and we are deeply sorry for this and have started doing more check-ups on our hosts and techs we send out.

All around, a great experience!

  • 4 of 5

I did not mind the walk. It was not too far from the beach. As we were leaving, I had the opportunity to meet the owners. Expressed my opinion, which I feel they will get right on it. They did a fabulous job redecorating and fixing up the place.I would be happy to stay there again and the price was not too expensive at all.

Nicest Condo we have stayed at in Destin...Period!!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I just returned from a vacation from this unit in Southbay. We could tell from the pictures it was well decorated but it definitely exceeded our expectations. The condo seems like it has been renovated from head to toe. The condo is very well decorated, has a great floor plan and has much more room than a typical condo. It is two story so it was nice to be able to sleep upstairs and have the downstairs as a completely separate area so if the kids woke up early or someone stayed up late it did not disturb anyone else in the condo. The bedrooms were a bit small but they had very spacious beds and we would rather have a queen/king bed in a small bedroom than a smaller bed and more room. The owner of this condo has taken great care to supply all of the modern day amenities so it doesn't feel like you have worn out rental house ware that is on it's last leg. The backyard is superb. They condo has a very nice brick patio that is accompanied by a shady lemon tree....we looked around and I can tell you no other condo in this complex has a set up like this. We truly felt like we had the nicest condo in the community. The location is also is very close to the entrance of the community so it is easy to come and go. The pool is literally right next to the condo about 50 feet away so it makes for a very convenient amenity to get to quickly for a late night swim or something like that. The beach is a little bit of a walk, I would say 200 yards but it did not bother us a bit. It is actually a pleasant walk to the beach, you cross a very nice lake that is right in the middle of Southbay, which is very unique. We loved the location of Southbay, it is in the heart of Destin and you can literally walk to restaurants that are across the street. I can tell you that we will definitely be booking this Southbay unit again. If you want a bright, beautifully decorated condo for a great value, you will not be disappointed!
