Lovely vacation condo rental!

  • 5 of 5

I was fortunate to find this wonderful vacation rental off season, as I had to transfer from Connecticut to Florida. I had to house hunt, so I didn't want to be chained to a lease. Renting a vacation condo made it perfect for my two month stay. Luckily, I found this one that was non-smoking and pet friendly.

The condo has a tropical ambiance to it with its bright decor. Todd and Chris have stocked it with every essential needed to live comfortably. The location is great: close to the main drag (Rt. 98) and to the beaches. With three pools at the complex, no need to leave unless you want to go shopping! My favs are the Destin Commons and Harbor Walk. You can bring the dog and some stores let you take pets inside, like Bass Pro.

I was fortunate to find a home during my stay. Although I will miss staying at the condo, I love my new home and painted the living/dining and kitchen with tropical colors like Todd and Chris's condo. Thank you, you've inspired me.

Need a place to stay while on travel for work? Or going on vacation? Rent it won't be disappointed!

Great place to stay! Perfect for two people. Centrally located to lots of shops and places to eat. Neighborhood could use more dumpsters for trash. Overall I would recommend this place to stay for anyone!!

Dirty, and disappointing (Stay Away)

  • 2 of 5

Positives: They let you bring a large breed dog and this was the only reason they got two stars.

Negatives: The property smelled of smoke and mildew. The bathroom and shower in the master bedroom was dirty and in bad need of updating and repair. The unit and grounds are one step above a government housing project. The grass was gone and the weeds were a foot tall with bits of trash everywhere. It was extremely disappointing and extremely overpriced!

Owner's Response: We are sorry your stay was not to your expectations. If you felt the bathroom was not clean, we would have taken care of that should you have contacted us. We are local owners and would have take care of this ourselves.

Quiet, quaint, perfect

  • 5 of 5

My family and I enjoyed staying at Unwind at the Beach a great deal. It was the perfect size for 3 adults (and a miniature dachshund) and it's ideally situated in the heart of Destin, close to, well, everything. The condo itself was clean and nicely decorated/furnished. The complex was quiet and the pool was great. There were two nice sized TVs, perfect for lounging around the condo. Plenty of comfortable seating in the living room and a full sized refrigerator and stove/oven. Any time I had a question during the rental process or even during our stay the owners were quick to respond, usually within an hour, and always friendly. We would definitely stay here again!
