About Debbie Knippa

We have a family of 6: Mom, Dad and 4 Sons. We live at our ranch outside San Antonio, TX and the boys are scattered around from Dallas to Boston. We love Destin, we love the beach and want you to feel at home!

Debbie Knippa purchased this condo in 2005

Why Debbie Knippa chose Emerald Coast-Destin Area

Destin is the perfect vacation destination for our family because it is both beautiful and comfortable. We first come to visit friends for New Years, and we've been coming back ever since. We use this condo as our vacation home as well as sharing it with guests all year. Mom loves fresh amber jack from the Gulf and shopping at Silver Sands, Dad enjoys coffee on the balcony, and the boys are usually out on the beach.

Home Away From Home

  • 5 of 5

I stayed in this condo in August 2007. It was breathtaking! The view from the balcony, the furniture in the entire place was beautiful. The facility was clean, and well-maintained. The staff was very friendly. I love the fact that the facility has its own gym and heated pool. It's also located across the street from the beach. Although we spent some time enjoying the sites in the city, my favorite time was spent just relaxing, watching the plasma screen TV in either of the rooms. I look forward to staying here again very soon. I would recommend it for couples with or without kids because there is plenty of privacy for everyone.

Well worth the money

  • 4 of 5

My family traveled from Tennessee (Go VOLS) with some friends for a week's vacation. We were very pleased that it was a facility that had guards at each entrance to the complex. We loved the view from the 18th floor. The walk to the beach was not bad at all and there were at least 4 stations along the way for us to rinse the sand off of us prior to entering the building and the pool area. The amenities in the condo were great. My wife and I stayed in the 2nd bedroom and while the bed was comfortable, it was rather noisy when you moved around. Overall, we were very pleased with everything about the condo and the listing agent was great to work through. We would definitely recommend this unit.

Destin Paradise!

  • 5 of 5

My family of 4 stayed in this beautiful condo for an entire week in June 2015! First, Debbie the property Manager was great to work with! She ensured everything was in order so when we arrived all we had to worry about was having a great vacation! The condo itself was perfect! The condo was clean, nicely furnished, and very roomy. The kitchen was well stocked with all the appliances/gadgets you would need to prepare meals! The property includes several pools which our boys absolutely loved! The balcony had an awesome view of the lake and ocean, which is where we spent our morning breakfast time! The living room is very large with plenty of comfortable seating! Umbrella beach service came with our room, which was a nice perk! A short walk to the beach everyday with an umbrella and chairs waiting(reserved) on the front row! This was our first trip to Destin. The beautiful condo made our vacation perfect and relaxing! Thanks for sharing your beautiful condo with us!!! We can't wait to come back!

Beautiful condo!! The view was amazing! We would definitely recommend this unit to other families!! It was located close to all the attractions in Destin, but it also had its privacy. The beach was beautiful but a little crowded.

Wonderful Location and Very Nice Home

  • 4 of 5

We are already talking about when we can schedule a vacation in this home again next year. The kitchen is well stocked for cooking with very nice appliances and open to the living area for great conversation and family fun. The balcony is so relaxing with the comfortable furniture and a lovely view of the ocean and beach. Several restaurants are within walking distance, Pompano Joe's was a favorite, also Whale's Tale and Bad Ass Coffee Co. We walked to the beach every day. The condo comes with access to beach chairs and umbrella service (these guys were very nice and helpful with questions about the area). We did not try the pool at the building since we were so busy with other things everyday. Destin is a beautiful area and this home is in a great location.

Excellent Condo

  • 5 of 5

We were extremely impressed with this rental. Super clean and well stocked. The furnishings were high end and appeared new or very well maintained. Everything we needed was available. The ease of getting in and out of the unit and the building was great. Fairly easy beach access (just a very short walk across the street) and great exercise I might add:-) We would definitely stay here again.

Car: recommended

The beaches of the Emerald Coast are famous for their pristine white sand and emerald green waters. The shelf extends a few hundred feet along most of the coastline, making for shallow waters perfect for your family vacation. Fine restaurants, fresh seafood and the largest designer outlet mall in the US provide for out of the water activities.

You wont find better fishing than when you charter a boat out of Destin Harbor. Choose from Bay Fishing, Bottom Fishing or Deep Sea (Sport) Fishing and have the time of your life. You can catch cobia, red/yellow snapper, amberjack, grouper, red fish, trigger fish, spanish mackrel, shark, king mackrel, trout, sailfish, marlin, wahoo, tuna, and more.

Other Activities: Seadoo rentals, glass bottom boat, beach chair rentals, Silversands Outlet Mall, fine dining, beach dining, parasailing, 'Luckiest Fishing Village in Florida'
