Loved Staying Here

  • 4 of 5

The condo has an excellent view from the balcony, our favorite spot. Spent hours here every morning after swimming with a fresh pot of coffee.

Unit is well furnished. Got everything that we need.

Can't wait to return.

Amazing place to stay during a great vacation

  • 5 of 5

Our unit was really nicely decorated and very clean. All the furnishings and sides even the towels and bedding was new and crispy clean. The view from the balcony whether Day or Night was so wonderful it would be hard to beat. Kitchen had everything we needed and we did not want for anything. The beds were very comfortable and the bunks were winners. Outside the beach was like a postcard and pool was also extremely nice. The condo and grounds were all clean and well maintained quiet but in the best location. The entire family loved it all and have informed us that they will move there when they grow up. It was the best. Thank you for sharing your piece of paradise.

Nice Place

  • 5 of 5

The property was as described. Very clean and comfortable and in great overall shape. We felt very comfortable staying there even though we usually prefer to stay in resorts or nice hotels.

Right across the road from the beach and with very nice Beach Service as well. Sand at the beach was absolutely beautiful. Pool was OK, not the greatest, but was clean and well maintained. We really appreciated being able to bring our small dog with us as well!

Nice-looking place but with some glitches -- also WARNING about Beach Retreat's pool

  • 4 of 5

First, the good news: Beach Retreat 404 is very nicely decorated and spotlessly clean, and some excellent design choices were made in what looks to be a recent remodeling of the kitchen and bathrooms. So, A+ for style and aesthetics. But the owners need to upgrade a few things if they want to earn a 5-star rating. The kitchen appliances, particularly the toaster and coffee maker, are cheap and barely functional, the knives are largely dull, the utensils aren't the best, and the cookware is sparse (two pots, two pans). The "sleeping pillows" on the beds have "more show than go;" they were uncomfortable enough to take away from a pleasant night's sleep. Not big things, and I genuinely hope the owners will read this and make those relatively inexpensive fixes.

Now for my big complaint, which is not directed to this unit's owner individually, but rather to the Beach Retreat HOA and property managers. Quit calling your pool "seasonally heated," because it's not and that's false advertising on a critical issue for anyone vacationing during much of the "off-season." Better yet, heat the damn pool so that what looked like around 50 renters who were there when we were in early November could have gone swimming in weather that was still plenty warm enough to be outside in without having to do the Polar Bear Plunge. What really gripes me is that I called the property management company on Saturday, got referred to the HOA group, left a nice message begging them to heat the pool and even offering to take up a collection among the other renters to pay for it if cost were truly an issue ... and didn't even get the courtesy of a return call.

Maravilla, virtually right next door, heats one of its pools (pleasantly so; a guest there invited us over one day). So here's my message to anyone considering renting at Beach Retreat off-season: ignore the BS about a seasonally-heated pool and ask "can you assure me that the Beach Retreat pool will be heated during the time when we will be there?" If the answer is less than a definite "Yes," then just say "thanks but no thanks," then look for units in complexes like Maravilla that heat their pools. I hope enough owners of Beach Retreat rental units see this post to realize that the wise choice is to heat the pool going forward, rather than sustaining the loss of revenues from continuing to decide not to.

Awesome Stay in Destin Beach Retreat!

  • 5 of 5

Condo was so nice in the pictures...even better in person. We were very pleased with the decor and cleanliness, not to mention the great communication with the owner. Pool area was plenty big for the facility. Beach was super easy access. Thanks for making the experience so effortless!
