Second time - still perfect

  • 5 of 5

I rented a house next to this unit for my extended family in August, and rented this condo unit as a backup for overflow guests (and my 80+ year old mother, who doesn't like stairs... which was not a problem in this first floor condo). Bottom line was that we all liked this condo very much, and my wife and I returned for Thanksgiving week. It comfortably sleeps 8, although at the price it made sense just for the 2 of us. It is obvious that the owner takes personal and meticulous care of this place (unlike many beach rentals, which are obviously maintained by contractors who don't care very much about the results). No pets are allowed. Neat freaks (like me) would like it here. The entire complex is very well maintained with lovely grounds, has secure, gated parking (ensuring that you can find a parking place, even in the busy season), and the condo and complex have keypad locks... so forgetting a key is not a problem (although forgetting a code could be!). It isn't close to a public beach access point, so there aren't any crowds. My wife's only gripe is that, with the sand dunes and shrubs, the views directly from the condo are of the ocean, not the beach (because the beach is actually too close to be seen below the shrubs). That is the trade-off you get for a first floor unit. We both like the views from higher up, but it is hard to beat the convenience of walking directly in with all the bags and groceries.

The wifi speed is good. We used my laptop to stream a couple of movies to the big screen TV (I travel with a long HDMI cord for that purpose), and it worked just as well as my Apple TV at home. No delays or skips.

There are plenty of shops and restaurants within walking distance, although most everyone who rents a place like this will have a car. The Panama City (ECP) airport is about 45 minutes away.

Palms of Dune Allen

  • 5 of 5

The condo was amazing, as in the pictures posted. Lots of room, suitable for handicapped, plenty of games, close to the pool. Gorgeous cook's kitchen with lots of counter space. Huge master bathroom. Great for big family dinners. The owner was awesome to work with.

A Wonderful Beach Condo on a Quiet Beach on 30A

  • 5 of 5

This was our first experience renting a beach home using this website and it was an outstanding one. Our interactions with the owner were very positive. This beach condo is more beautiful than the pictures convey and is located on an especially quiet section of 30A. The home easily accommodated our family which included three generations with two grandchildren ages 18 months and age four. The kitchen is very well equipped and the home includes binoculars and books about the area. The convenience of the pool and beach to the home was wonderful.

Everyone enjoyed the beach. The water is especially clear and is quite shallow for a good distance out to two sand bars. For the week that we were here, we shared the beach with only one or two other families. We saw dolphin almost daily, as well as a sea turtle and many water birds. Our family rented a sea kayak for several days and enjoyed paddling in the gulf as well as catching several king and Spanish mackerel. We would definitely recommend this home highly as a lovely vacation spot and hope to return.

Great condo and aweseome location!

  • 5 of 5

We had two families stay in the unit and it was very spacious and accommodating. Although, there is not an ocean view from the unit due to the landscaping, the 1st floor patio entry was great with kids going to and from the beach or pool. The location was far enough from the crowds yet close enough to shops and restaurants. Condo was clean, well maintained and the kitchen was fully stocked with dishes/utensils/etc. The owners had menus, books and items about the surrounding area in the condo. The beach was very nice. We saw sea turtles, stingray, dolphins and sand dollars everywhere! Everyone enjoyed snorkeling! Owner was responsive when we had questions before our trip. We ventured out to Grayton Beach State Park - very beautiful! We also rented a pontoon and went to Shell Island. We enjoyed dining at Pandora's in Grayton Beach and Louis Louis in Santa Rosa Beach. Great area - can't wait to go back! Would definitely recommend this unit!

Just as described

  • 5 of 5

Our party consisted of 2 families (4 adults and 4 kids). We had a terrific time. We were pleasantly suprised to find that the condo was EXACTLY has discribed. We had plenty of room, the home looked just like the pictures, the travel directions were spot on, the location was close enough to the beach for daily fun, withou all the over crowding of Destin proper. I would highly recommend the property and will most likely stay again!
