Overview

About the property

closeness to the beach - yet reasonable rates! Well kept and appealing.

SUMMER: just steps away from the beach.

Please contact owner!

This condominium (Number 122 on the map)is located just a few steps from our incredible white, sandy beach! You can see beach and smell the water from the patio, the clear blue/green waters of the Emerald Coast are so near bye. This is the ideal location for your relaxing vacation, away from the strain and bustle of the hot citys.

APRIL, MAY is a perfect time for an uncrowded beach, sunshine and good weather after the cold winter! Lower rates during those times.

It is a wonderful family vacation in the SUMMER.

This apartment is complete in itself, 2 stories (the bedrooms are upstairs), just like living in your own home. Comfortable and cozy in the warm winter, and wonderful in the SUMMER.

Share this experience with your family and friends, or just come to relax, a great get-away from everyday life.

Keywords: condo on the beach, town house, vacation rental, year round.

About ILSE MAYER

I am a hotel owner in a ski resort and have been in the rental business for over 40 years. My ski resort is in Taos, New Mexico, at the southern end of the Rocky Mountains, where I have the Edelweiss Chalet, TAOS SKI VALLEY, NM (listing # 45687, vrbo).

I love my beachside condo and spend time here every Fall. It is a perfect change and contrast to the high altitude and mountain living.

Please come and enjoy my beach condo!

enjoyable week

  • 4 of 5

We went to Destin for a wedding. The condo was close to a lot of activities. The space of the place was great for all of us. It was a quiet community. The one thing is that the televisions in the bedroom did not work. All in all a good stay.

Owner's Response: Thank you very much for your review. I am so glad you enjoyed your stay in Destin and in my condo. I wish I had known about the TV problem. We immediately bought a new TV and installed it in the Bedroom. You picked a wonderful quiet time to come! Keep that in mind! Hope to see you back in the future!

On the beach but could not sit on it!

  • 2 of 5

The condo was clean and as described. Ilse was easy to work with. I have vacationing on different beaches every summer. LOVE the beach. I have never had this problem arise. A man on the beach rents wood chairs and umbrellas. We like to take our own chairs that sit close to the ground and sit them on the edge of the water. As we sat our chairs on the edge of the ocean, the rental guy said we can only sit our chairs in approximately 10 foot area, which was already full of the other vacationers. No room for our chairs. He said he has the full cooperation of the condo owners association and we could not put our chairs anywhere else on the beach except behind his rental chairs although we were renters of that condo. I do not mind to pay the money for the rental but the chairs were the hard wood slats that would of killed my back and they could not be moved closer to the water. So we loaded up our vehicle every morning and drove to the public beaches. It was one of the worst vacations because of the beach access. My husband was mad every morning as we were packing up for the beach, although we had a beach front condo. I am writing this review almost 1 year later because I always appreciate others' honest reviews and I never posted this issue. The picture of the empty beach with a few rental chairs must have been taken in the winter because did not not look like this in June!

Owner's Response: I am glad you like the condo and it was what you expected. That is my responsibility and that is what this review should be sbout. As for the beach, I am sure that it is crowded at times, it is just such a wonderful beach. However I as the owner of just the condo - not the beach - do not have control over the beach. I wish I could help you there. My advise it that you should come in the Spring or Fall when it is less crowded, not in the peak season. For the past 30 or more years nobody has ever rated the condo based on the crowd on the beach.

Destin Kiting

  • 4 of 5

I was down in Desting for some winter kiteboarding.

The condo is right on a gorgeous beach and close to all the restaurants. Getting in, and dealing with Ilse was pleasurable and simple.

I will try to go back next year.

Great place to stay near the ocean!!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I have stayed here the past three years and have already made reservations for next year. The condo is clean and comfortable. The kitchen is well equipped with pots, pans, utensils....everything you need to cook a gourmet meal for those evenings when you stay home and cook for yourselves. We brought our own small gas grill and grilled out on the patio quite often. The bedrooms are comfortable too. Ilse recently renovated the shower in the master bath. It's great!! The condo is only a few steps from the white sandy beach. I enjoyed swimming in the crystal clear ocean. My wife and I surf fished a few times and did quite well. We walked a mile or two along the beach most mornings and enjoyed watching the dolphins swim and surf in the waves. There are many excellent restaurants nearby. The seafood is fantastic. I would definitely recommend this condo. Ilse is a joy to talk to. She is very gracious and accomadating.
