Overview

Emerald Coast-Destin Area Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condominium - 2 Bedrooms + Bunk Area - 2 Baths - (Sleeps 6-8)

Escape to the Beach Retreat and to one of the most beautiful beaches around. Awesome, unobstructed views of the Gulf of Mexico from this professionally decorated luxury condo.

NO steps, NO elevator waits, it's out the door of this first floor unit and over to the beach via Beach Retreat's private access. After enjoying the beach, relax at the 3000 square foot heated pool. The pool area includes a whirlpool, sundeck and picnic area with tropical landscape.

Return to the condo and enjoy the beautiful sunset from the lounge chairs on our oversized patio, accessible through the 8 ft. sliding glass doors in both the living room and master bedroom, all facing the beautiful Gulf of Mexico.

Cook dinner in our new newly done kitchen- new granite counter tops and new stainless steel appliances- or just enjoy drinks on the bar stools with great views of the Gulf.

After dinner relax while viewing your favorite movie on a 55' LED Flat Screen TV with surround sound. Condo has a total of 4 Flat Screen TVs .

Vacation with all the comforts and amenities of home. The Beach Retreat is a short distance from the Silver Sands Outlet Mall, Big Kahauna Water Park and the Destin Marina. We are within walking distance to Pompano Joe's, Captain Dave's and The Crab Trap restaurants- all great dining establishments right on the beach.

About Al

We've been sharing our family vacation home for several years now and have many families that return year after year. Please see our reviews

Al purchased this condo in 2004

Why Al chose Emerald Coast-Destin Area

The Beaches of South Walton offer some of the best beaches in the world. Miles of silky white sand and crystal clear water- It doesn't get any better.

What makes this condo unique

Nothing beats a day at the beach, deep sea fishing in the gulf, golfing on any of the great courses nearby- an afternoon drive down 30A through Grayton Beach, Watercolor and Seaside- an evening out at the Destin Commons or Baytowne Wharf- enjoying any of the many great restaurants nearby or shopping at the outlet mall if you so desire. This place is paradise.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi Al,



I just wanted to say that we had a fantastic time in Destin. We loved the condo and it was perfect for our family. I loved the decor and colors of the rooms! The bunk bed room was a hit with our 8 and 5 year old! Thank you so much for letting us rent it for our Thanksgiving week. We made many memories as a family. We loved playing in the sand even though it was a little colder then hoped. :)



Thank you again!

Al, just to let you know how very much we enjoyed our time at your Beach Retreat condo. The location was just wonderful -furnishings were beautiful and we loved being on the first floor. This was our sixth trip to Destin and your condo was the best yet. We will definitely be back!! Thanks so much, Connye and Barry Neal-

breath taking ocean view

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay here! The condo was huge and very clean. It was equipped with everyday bath and kitchen needs. We loved the pool. It was the cleanest pool we ever swam in. The ocean view was breath taking. We walked out the door and onto the beach. The beaches in Destin is like white powdered snow. You will enjoy your stay here.
