We just returned home from our week at Utopia. If you are looking for beautiful accomodations, close proximity to the beach, and convenience-this is the place to stay. The location was perfect--loved being on the main floor with no elevators to worry about. Just a few short steps and you're right on the beach. The decor in the condo is amazing-- what you see in the pictures is what you get! First class accomodations without a doubt! The location of the resort is close to shopping and restaurants. Pool is large and very nice. I would highly recommend Utopia and would definately stay here again.
I wanted a place for my family to enjoy a Florida vacation, and this condo in Destin seemed to have great reviews. When we arrived at the unit and opened the door, we were all awe-struck. The condo is nothing short of beautiful. Alot of work (and money) definitely went into this unit, and it is light-years ahead of all others. On the kitchen granite countertop, we were greeted with 6 complimentary bottles of water and some very fresh baked blueberry bread! It was delicious and very thoughtful. Yes, it is not far from the beach...about 100 yards. It has direct access to the pool area, outdoor childrens' play area, and the beach. Inside, the Master and Guest Bedrooms and Bathrooms are lavish. The theme is dark woods and stones and tiles--somewhat masculine throughout. There are 3 flat screen TVs, music system, wonderful furniture, and a fully equipped kitchen for cooking. There is a Wal-Mart across the street to buy all of your groceries to cook with. I will add that the condo unit had plenty of stocked supplies: paper towels, toilet paper, dishes, cups/glasses; it also had a full sized Coffee maker, toaster, and blender. There is an amazing cooled wine rack and wine bar. If I were to make any suggestions/recommendations to the owner: it would be to PLEASE provide a few pieces of NON-STICK cook ware. There is just one small pan that was non-stick. Otherwise, all the other cooking pans were...well, sticky!The food we cooked stuck to the pans and really smoked up the kitchen area and living area--every night, even if we used Pam spray or olive oil. So, I think an investment in some good, non-stick pans would be very, very helpful! Also, I wish that someone would have given us a brief tour of the unit: we had a hard time figuring out how to use the lighting system in the Guest bedroom. Other than that, the condo is terrific and worth the money! You can see the sunrise over part of the Gulf waters in the morning from some of the unit's windows. We plan on definitly returning!
We put so much work into this condo and love that everyone is enjoying it!
The place was amazing and Bliss Rentals was truly the most organized and helpful company yiu could possibly imagine. Our stay was perfect in every single way!!
We really enjoyed our stay in Utopia! It was worth every cent. Our kids enjoyed their room with bunk beds and separate tv. I enjoyed the amazing kitchen and patio. The master bedroom, bathroom, and closet are huge. We had extra storage leftover after unpacking, which never happens with 4 girls in the family. The living room had lots of fun games in the cabinet. I can't wait to buy a washer and dryer setup like the one in Utopia. It was nice having an extra bathroom in the laundry room for guests (I don't remember seeing photos of it before booking). There was a Dyson vacuum to clean the sand from the floors as needed. The patio is huge and our kids played football and ran around in the rain. We used the grills a few times, which are located at both ends of the 1st floor. The entire condo was decorated like a custom home and the appliances were new and up to date. It was nice having a separate garage for our car right by the elevators just steps from the condo. There were even 4 heavy duty beach chairs, corn hole, and sand toys for us to use during our stay. The pool was kept clean and just steps from the condo. There were never enough pool chairs, but that's ok since we spent our time in the pool with our little kids. We could seriously retire in a place like Utopia!
