The Perfect Choice!

  • 5 of 5

This condo has a perfect location. Very close to the ocean, pool and shopping centers. Barbara and her husband (the owners) are 2 of the nicest people you will ever meet. We absolutely loved them. The condo is equipped with everything you could possibly need. I love the one level with no stairs! It is very nicely furnished. Very spacious and roomy too. All the beds were comfortable. The prices are very affordable. You better book early or you will lose out. You will not regret your decision to stay here! Hopefully Barbara will welcome us back in 2017.

Couldn't have been happier with this choice!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of five found this condo to be the perfect accommodations for us. There were plenty of places to sit in the living room and dining room. The condo is extremely convenient to the beach and pool. We also found anything else we wanted to do (shopping, dining out, movies) was close by as well. The owners were easy to reach and very helpful. We would definitely come back!

Another Great Destin Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

This was my family's second visit to Destin and our second time staying in this condo. You simply can't ask for anything more. It's well appointed, perfectly located, and nicely priced. The owners have made some nice upgrades to the bathrooms since our last visit. If you're reading this review and your dates are available, just book the condo, you won't regret it. I certainly will for my next visit. BTW, I was traveling with my husband and 4 kids ages 11-16.

Great for a family--close to beach!

  • 5 of 5

Our quite-large family stayed here for a week. We are 2 adults & 4 kids (2 pre-teens & 2 toddlers). This place is beautiful. There is no carpet or rugs, so it's easy to keep clean (if you like to sweep on vacation--we did not & it was fine :) There is a very comfortable king-size bed in the master; and 2 queen-size beds in the second bedroom. Also, the couch folds out to a queen-size bed. The kitchen had everything we needed & the washer & dryer was super nice to have. They have opened up the sunroom so the condo is very spacious & you have an "extra" sitting area. Outside is a nice patio set, but there is a ton of green space for kids to run & play (this unit is the 2nd one, so it's not as cramped up as some of the others). The beach is a slow 5-minute walk or a brisk 3-minute walk. You really can't beat the location. While you do have the cross the road, and you cannot see the beach from the room, this unit is closer to the beach than some of the high-rise condos you see on the beach side. As far as the owners, Ms. Barbara called us when the room was ready, so we got to get in early. Also, she called us once we got there to make sure everything was perfect. We love her! We absolutely loved staying here & this will be where we stay when we come back to Destin!

Very Nice!

  • 5 of 5

This clean and tastefully decorated condo was a great place to relax when not enjoying the wonderful beach or pool. The condo is bright, smells clean, and has neutral, comfortable furnishings to enjoy. The bathrooms are beautiful and a nice upgrade with the decor. The private backyard hosts a wrought iron patio set and there is enough green space for kids to enjoy. Some pretty flowers around too! We also enjoyed the newly resurfaced tennis courts and pool upgrades. The location is wonderful as you can walk to several restaurants, and you are just steps away from the beach and/or pool. The owners are very easy to work with, whether its by email or telephone. We did not have any trouble with neighbors being too loud, or us being too loud either. A real gem of a place to stay.

Thank you Barbara and Harland

Car: recommended

Destin is known as a family friendly beach recreation area. It abounds in excellent lodging, restaurants, shopping, tennis, golf, salt and semi-salt water fishing. It is fronted on the sugar white sand and emerald green water of the Gulf of Mexico. Behind is Choctawhatchee Bay with more boating and fishing. Across the bay is Eglin AFB with the Air Force Museum. Pensacola to the west is home to the Naval Aviation Museum. Between Ft. Walton Beach and Pensacola is the zoo. There are the latest in theaters, specialty shops and nationally famous Silver Sands outlet center.
