Guestbook comments from the manager

We had a great time in Destin. The beach is beautiful and being able to view it

right off the balcony was great. The condo was very well taken care of and met

all our needs. We can't wait to come back and we would definitely stay here

classy, classy condo!!!

  • 5 of 5

This condo was PERFECT!! All the furniture looked new and was very classy. And the newly remodeled bathroom was much so I took pictures of every detail to copy in my bathroom back home!! They provided absolutely everything we could possibly have needed...even a teapot!!! The beach chairs and umbrella that the owners provide saved a ton of money in rentals or in buying new ones ourselves. I loved the wrap around porch and sturdy, first class deck furniture. The weather was perfect to spend some time each morning out there with the Lord and His creation!! And oh what beautiful views & sounds of the ocean right from the balcony!! We could not have enjoyed our trip to Destin anymore!!! THANK YOU #301!!!

We were disappointed with the cleanliness of the condo. We ended up having to re clean the condo when we arrived. The sheets had stains, I had to remove the sheets, wash a new set.... we also had to sweep the foam mattress pad... there were hairs stuck in it. The mattress cover had stains on it too. The lamp shades beside the bed were covered in dust. We had to sweep and mop the floors, it felt like a layer of dirt and sand were still on the floor. There were dirt marks on the hallway walls. We did not have any kids that stayed in the bunk beds but, we did notice stains on those blankets as well. It might be time to invest in some new bedding. I hope this review helps.

Owner's Response: The guest that had been there the day before gave us a rave review so I was quite shocked at this one! I spoke with the inspector and she said that she can not understand this review either. The living room furniture is less then 2 months old, and the bedding is less then 4 months old! I inspected the bunk beds and could not find the stains. Again I am very sorry for your experience and I wish you had said something while you were here so that I could have helped make your stay a more pleasant one.
