Guestbook comments from the manager

Dear Fred and Del,

Vielen Dank! that means thank you in German. We found this lovely condo in the internet and we are very happy about that. We really enjoyed the time in Destin. The kids built sand castles at the white beach. We all got sunburn because we couldn't get enough of the clear water. Now it feels hot, but we will miss it in Germany.

The time here will always stay in our memories. Thanks again!

This place is absolutely amazing!

We have been renting from Fred & Del for years now. The town house is amazing and it offers the best and most convenient place to see in Destin, Florida. We look forward to renting with Fred and Del for many years to come.

Beautiful and comfortable getaway

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time here. It was convenient to everything... grocery shopping, movie theater, and the outlet mall. There were two pools and an amazing view of the lake. The walk to the beach was very short, and the owners provided beach chairs and an umbrella rental in our price. We will definitely be coming back. Thanks so much! The Trejo Family - Mississippi

Relaxing Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

Our vacation was wonderful! We were just a short walk to the pool and beach. It was a nice bonus to have umbrella/chairs set up for us each day. The unit was lovely, clean and had everything we needed (including a pack n play!!). We had a great week of weather and enjoyed time on the balcony. I would highly recommend this unit. The owners were very pleasant to deal with. Thank you to Fred and Del!

We had a greatest time at this house. The house is spacious, beautiful with relaxing lake view and short walk to beach. Clean bathrooms with plenty of towels. Kitchen has many extras things I need for cooking that I didn't have at other vacation rentals. We go to Destin to escape Texas heat at least twice every summer and stay at a different vacation rental each time. We highly recommend this house. The owners are every friendly, helpful and made us feel so comfortable and welcomed. We will rent this again. Thank you, Del & Fred, very much for sharing this unit with us.

great place

  • 5 of 5

This unit fit all our needs. The beds were very comfortable. It is close to the beach and included chair/umbrella rental. The location was nice because it wasn't next to a high rise complex, which makes the beach crowded.
