Beautiful view and easy access to beach, dining and shopping. Mike and Ruthie made it very simple to book and get into condo immediately after arrival.

Already to go back to Summerspell!

  • 5 of 5

Our family really enjoyed our week long stay at Summerspell. It was very close to the beach (the reason we were there!) and a close drive to everything in and around Destin. The condo was clean and well stocked. Listening to the ocean on the front balcony was perfect for morning coffee and evening relaxation. We traveled with two ten year old girls and they enjoyed the space and proximity to the beach. We brought headlamps for late night beach walks and crab hunting. I also brought most of our food from home as grocery prices are outrageous! This was our first visit to Destin and it really is breathtaking! My only suggestion for summer visitors that are on a Sat-to-Sat stay: try to get to Destin in the very early AM on arrival day and leave by 7AM on departure day to avoid sitting in traffic for hours.

Close to beach

  • 5 of 5

Mike's condo was very close to the beach, across the street from a public beach so there were unobstructed gulf views from the balcony. It had everything we needed- even things we often forget that other places do not have for you such as air freshener, dish soap, dish washing machine detergent, etc. The floor plan is great for one family with bunk beds in the hall way and a pocket door so adults can be in living room while kids sleep. There was extra storage in coffee table cubes, etc for toys. There is a washer and dryer in stairwell, not inside the unit. But there were enough towels for our family to last for the week, so it was actually a nice relief to not have to do laundry. I find that other units that have a washer inside only leave enough towels for 1-2 days so you are having to wash constantly- and really, who wants to do that on what is supposed to be a relaxing vacation? There are extra drying racks on balcony to air dry swim suits and towels. Also Mike was very easy to deal with and reach by phone or email if needed. Our only complaint really was the mattress was much more firm than we care for. We would definitely recommend this condo to others and would stay there again. We really appreciated the extra conveniences that other condos overlook :). Thanks Mike for a wonderful stay!

The property description says it all!

  • 5 of 5

We just got back from vacation with our young kids. The property is as pictured. You get what you pay for. It's a cute place for kids. It's a bit older building and has definite wear and tear. You may see signs of wear but it's clean as a whistle. There was a strange smell, to be honest, but nothing an air freshener couldn't fix. We had to be careful to remind the kids to step lightly bc it's an older building, but we were there for the beach, not the indoors! It's a great place for a budget vacation, and the owners were nice to work with!
