About the property

Condo, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6-8)

Our west-side condominium has breathtaking views of the sparkling emerald green Gulf waters and glorious Florida sunsets.

It is 1,155 square feet with a spacious balcony suitable for outdoor dining. The condominium has been recently redecorated throughout with new paint, and furniture. It looks fabulous. Surfside 206 offers all the luxury that you would expect from a world class beach resort without the expensive prices usually associated with it. It is definitely not the usual 'condo package' that you may have experienced in previous rentals. The kitchen is remodeled and has updated appliances. There are two baths, two bedrooms, living room/ dining room, eat-in kitchen, washer and dryer, large balcony, unique floor plan with views from every room.

The unit has 10 foot ceilings and floor to ceiling windows with sliding doors to the balcony in every room. Quality balcony furniture, table and chairs for out-door dining and relaxing and enjoying the view. Balcony enclosures have clear glass for unobstructed viewing of the Gulf.

There is a large, luxurious master suite with king bed and second master with two queen-sized beds and a separate entrance.

Surfside Resort offers all the amenities:

a pool-side tiki bar, full-service restaurant, bar on beach,

exercise facility, lighted tennis courts, vollley ball, basketball,

heated pool, two hot tubs and saunas. FREE high-speed wireless

internet access makes it convenient to stay in touch.

Silver Sands Outlet Mail is a mere 1/2 mile away and only four miles from Destin Commons offers 14 screen multiplex theater and shopping and dining that is outstanding. There are also chain restaurants such as Macaroni Grill, Outback Steak House, Longhorn Steak House, Bonefish Grill and Cracker Barrel within five miles of the resort.

About Dawn Romig

We have owned a vacation home in Destin since 2001. We love it so much that in 2007, we decided to buy a second condo so all our family could come to the beach together. It has been great. Our primary home is in Atlanta, Georgia where Randy works in advertising and Dawn gardens, does volunteer work, and spends time with grandchildren.

Our three daughters are grown, but they still love to spend time at our beach home with their children. One of our summer highlights is “Grandchildren’s Week at the Beach”. All six of our grandchildren, their moms and Dawn spend a week at the condo. They enjoy swimming, building sandcastles, bicycling, tennis, going to “the Track,” and the movies.

As a couple, we love to travel, play tennis, exercise, enjoy good restaurants, shop, and most of all, relax at the beach. Because we live only 5 ½ hours away, we frequently visit our beach condo and have furnished it similar to our home in Atlanta with all its amenities. We want it to be a place that we and our guests can vacation without worries.

Dawn Romig purchased this condo in 2007

Why Dawn Romig chose Emerald Coast-Destin Area

We visited Destin in the mid '80s and fell in love with it. Though we have traveled the world, we have never discovered a beach or water more beautiful than we have found in Destin. When we were ready to buy a place in Destin, our condo at Surfside Resort seemed perfect. It has a spectacular view of the Gulf and great amenities.

What makes this condo unique

We really enjoy our private beach, playing tennis on our on-site courts, exercising in our fitness center, and dining in our great on-site restaurant. Our two balconies with unobstructed glass enclosures are 24 ft. and 14 ft. long and wide enough for outdoor dining. There is plenty of private parking, covered and uncovered. It's also nice to order lunch and drinks at the Tiki hut on the pool deck or have drinks at the bar on the beach tower.

Great getaway!

  • 5 of 5

The location of this condo is wonderful. The ocean in this location is beautiful . . . Emerald in color. The pool area was very nice. Great exercise room on site. We walked the beach every day. We felt very at home in this unit. the unit was very clean. It is well equipped and spacious. The owner was a delight to work with. We could not have asked for a better vacation spot. I would definately consider renting this unit again.

Pleasant beach week

  • 5 of 5

We visited Surfside Beach Resort Oct 15-22, 2016. The condo itself was beautifully decorated and well stocked with kitchen utensils. Resort itself has many extras such as fitness center, beautiful pool and hot tubs, basketball courts, and of course the beach! I would recommend this condo to anyone searching for a clean, well maintained place to relax for a week or so. The owner was very easy to work with and provided accurate info on what we needed to bring with us. I would also like to recommend a restaurant we discovered called the Shrimp Basket. Not fancy, but absolutely the best shrimp and grits, I have ever eaten, all prepared by a young man who looks like he's about 22. They also have AUCE specials every day. We ate there twice during our stay and they were the best 2 meals we had the whole vacation. Price: $15-19 per person! It's worth searching for...check your iPad.

Surfside 206

Verified Stay

All that we wanted and more. This was our first time to stay at Surfside. We liked the complex and especially liked unit 206. The condo is nicely decorated and maintained, close to the elevator, with easy access to beach, pool, and parking. Everything we needed for making our week enjoyable was furnished, including a beach setup. Special thanks to Dawn, the owner, for keeping us informed and answering any questions we had.

Florida Vacation

  • 4 of 5
Verified Stay

This was my first time in the Gulf of Florida. Loved the "Emerald" water. We were there the week of Sept. 10th to the 17th. Since it was off peak season it seemed to be a little boring. The restaurants tended to close at 9:00.

Enjoyed the Condo. Just the right amount of room for 4 people. Any more than that and it would not have worked. Management seemed a little uptight. Not so friendly to "renters". Florida rule. No drinks in the pool. That was a bummer.
