Welcome to the 902 Tides @ Tops'l: You are about to experience the natural beauty of Florida's Emerald Coast, where sand is like sugar and the Gulf waters are aquarium clear and emerald green. These unspoiled surroundings foster life-long memories of family vacations and unforgettable romantic getaways.

Destin is home to some of the worlds most beautiful beaches. The crystal clear water and the sugar white sands have given the Emerald Coast area a reputation as one of America's premier vacation destinations.

The beautiful waters of the Emerald Coast beaches provide sunbathers, snorkelers and fisherman with a paradise beyond words. Fishing off of the beach and jetties yields catches of Whiting, Pompano and Mackerel, while snorkeling in the same locations yields views of beautiful tropical fish and great shell collecting.

The Emerald Coasts beaches are a place of sheer enjoyment and indulgence for people of all ages.

Golf & Fishing, too!: The Destin area is home to some of the finest YEAR ROUND golf courses on this planet. Along with offering degrees of challenge well-suited for players of every level of ability and talent, area courses boast breathtaking scenery and outstanding facilities. The hardest part about playing golf on the Emerald Coast is choosing which courses to play while your here.

Fishing in Destin does not require the use of a boat. Many species of sport fish are caught in the Emerald Coast waters off of the beach, pier and jetty. This type of fishing in the Gulf is best between April, when the first Pompano arrive, through October.

Fishing from these fixed locations with live bait, frozen bait, and artificial baits will produce Pompano, Whiting, Channel Bass, Sheepshead, Blue Runner, Bluefish, Sail Cat, Spanish Mackerel, King Mackerel, Cobia, Bonito, Jack Crevalle.

Thank You!: Whether it was golf, fishing, tennis or just lounging on the beautiful beaches that filled your time here, we hope you enjoyed your stay in our 2nd home. We'd love to hear from you so please feel free to sign our guest book.

Thank you for choosing to stay with us and please remember us in the future.

Fantastic Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We found this wonderful place after a brief internet search for Destin beach front condos. We contacted the owners via email. Mike was quick to respond, and explained everything about billing and services in detail. There were no surprises. Compared to other condos we’d researched, the price was very reasonable for the location. When we arrived at the resort we were greeted by a pleasant guard at the front gate. We knew right away from the manicured vegetation and quiet atmosphere driving through the condos to the beach front that we’d made the right decision. The place is classy. Going around the building to the left and through the tunnel to the back of the building we were able to park within 50 feet of the elevators. Grocery and luggage carts were right there. We loaded all our stuff up on a cart and were up to our room in less than 5 minutes. We noticed that the housekeeping staff was wiping down the walls in the breezeway while we waited for the elevator. That kind of attention to detail shows in the overall cleanliness of the facility. We really liked the combo lock on the front door. It allowed us to program our own easily remembered code and to not deal with room keys. The condo was clean, well equipped and beautifully decorated. The view from the balcony was breathtaking. The condo is located just before the private homes start on the beach, so the beach isn’t crowded like other resorts we’ve been to. I decided to try surf fishing for the first time. I was out in the surf at 5:30am and no one else around. As the sun came up and those beautiful colors lit up the early morning sky, I caught a pompano right there on the beach. We had fresh fish for dinner that night. We had a great vacation and plan on going back soon.

902 Tides

  • 5 of 5

The location, layout and amenities were just what we were looking for. The property was kept well maintained outside. The owner responded to our questions promptly and everything was what he said it would be. Condo well stocked. We would definitely recommend to friends. The onsite restaurant, Ocean Club, was great too. We tended to eat out for dinner each night while there - 2 of our favorites were Poppy's and Bud and Alley's. The beach was so white with fine grain sand so it didn't feel hot while walking on it.

Just wish the charge for beach umbrellas and chairs weren't so expensive. We purchased them in town - price was cheaper for 3 chairs and umbrellas for the wk than it was for the day.

The best we have stayed at!

  • 5 of 5

Mike and Paula...Your unit is the best one we have stayed in during our 10 years of vacationing in Destin. It was beautifully decorated, very clean, and had gorgeous views. It was the quickest check-in we've experienced - no standing in line or waiting until 5:00 for the unit to be ready. We really liked the keyless entry - it was very convenient and there were no key cards to keep up with on the beach. We were relieved to find the beach and water oil-free.Thank you for providing the link to show the oil-free beach photos prior to our arrival and thank you for calling to check on us. :)

We loved that the condo is located next to the nature preserve which provides the added benefit of "Old Florida" - a section of beach in its natural state -- a contrast to the crowded beach areas to the west of Tops'l.

We all agree that your unit is the best one we have stayed in during the 10 years of vacationing in Destin. It is beautifully decorated, very clean, and has gorgeous views. Thank you for sharing your beach home...we will be back next year!

Mike -

I'm so glad we came across your internet listing and The Tides.

Your condo is beautiful as well as perfectly situated with a beautiful view. The easy access to the pools and beach made it a very relaxing vacation.

We had a fantastic time and will return.

Great condo!

  • 5 of 5

Just returned from our vacation. The condo is a great location. We prefer less crowded beaches than you find in Destin or Orange Beach and this was perfect. Mike was most helpful and prompt in responding to emails. I can be really picky about where we stay and was very happy!

Car: recommended

The famous Sugar-White Destin beaches aren't the only draw on Northwest Florida's shores....Tides@Tops’l is only minutes to the Largest Designer Outlet Mall in the South...the Silver Sands Outlet Mall...San Destin's Baytown, offering quaint shopping, a wide variety of restaurants and exciting nightlife.

Just a couple of blocks up Hwy 98, the new Grand Boulevard at Sandestin is the distinctive new town center.

GOLF Digests has designated Destin , as one of the 'Top-10 Best Golf Towns in America'...and Deep-sea anglers know Destin as the 'World's Luckiest Fishing Village'.

Beautiful beaches...great nightlife is all within minutes of the beautiful resort. What more could you want?
