About the property

Condo, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 5-7)

Located at Southbay by the Gulf, a private community of individually owned townhomes in beautiful Destin Florida. This family oriented complex is located directly on the Gulf of Mexico with 300 feet of breathtaking white sandy beach and beautiful emerald green water.

Southbay by the Gulf, in the heart of Destin, is located half-way between the Destin bridge and the Mid-bay toll bridge (three miles from each). Southbay is complete with all the amenities: 2 pools with adjoining kiddie pool, 2 tennis courts, and shuffle board, and fully stocked 5 acre fresh spring fed coastal lake.

Our home away from home is located just 120 yards from the beach, and has no streets to cross, no high-rise to deal with, less than a minute to the pool and tennis courts, and is an end unit on the south-side of the lake. The kitchen is fully equipped for the finest chef, with ample eating area. Recent renovations and redecorating such as new granite countertops in the kitchen and a new electric grill sets our home apart from the rest. Each bedroom has its own private bath, and comfortable mattresses. Our home is baby friendly and includes a pack-n-play, safety gate, high chair, and outlet covers so you have less to worry about packing.

You will enjoy breathtaking views of the 5 acre lake from our two generously sized decks off the Livingroom and Master Bedroom. Imagine enjoying your morning coffee looking at the beautiful view

of the water. The children will enjoy feeding the ducks, turtles, and fishing right from your own private deck while you prepare dinner on your own electric grill.

Guestbook comments from the owner

What beautiful weather! Cool & Crisp at night and warm and breezy during the day. The storm front came through and the ocean was powerful; especially viewing at night. All together, we had a great time!

One of the better put together condos we have ever stayed in. Kitchen was very well stocked with anything you needed. Location was absolutely perfect to the beach and pool! Would highly recommend this condo to anyone. Thanks Fred and Del for a great week.

Wonderful time in Destin!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time last week in Destin. The weather was beautiful and the condo was perfect for our family of 4. The bunk beds were a huge hit with our kids. The condo is pretty and clean and is centrally located to the pools, beach and tennis courts. Fred and Del are a joy to work with. We look forward to next year!

Great Condo!

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful condo! Only steps from the beach and it's an end unit so others are only on one side of you. The condo has everything you could need. The beds are super comfortable and downstairs, where it's cooler, and the kitchen is stocked with appliances, utensils and cookware (even has a crock pot!). Extra beach toys, umbrellas and boogie boards are available. The owner is super nice and even stopped by to see if we needed anything. Thank you Fred!

First trip to Destin and really enjoyed the condo. Traveled with my two teenage sons and we all were very comfortable with the condo and the amenities. Everything that we needed and great location. Close to the beach and centrally located for Destin activities. Would definitely stay here again.

This was my first trip to Destin. I took my mom and my son with me on a mini vacation before my son started back to school. The condo was absolutely beautiful. We were in awe with all the amenities the condo had to offer and the awesome view of the lake. Although we were only there for about two days, it was the best time I have had in a long time. The condo created such a relaxing atmosphere that we spent most of our time just relaxing inside. We had such a great time that we did not want to leave. My mom, who's 70, said that she had the most relaxing and peaceful time of her life there at the condo. She's looking forward to going back as well as I am. Thank you much for an experience we will always remember and treasure.

This was our families first vacation and we had such a wonderful time/experience. The set up was great and we couldn't have asked for a nicer/cleaner place to stay. The house felt like being at home except without the stress being it was vacation. I would definitely recommend this home to anyone to stay at. Its just a skip away from the beach with a beautiful view of the lake that the balconies overlook :)
