About Patti Martineau

Joe & Patti from Saint Louis, MO and other immediate family members - son Robby and 2 dogs Cisco and Zooki

Patti Martineau purchased this condo in 2005

Why Patti Martineau chose Emerald Coast-Destin Area

After years of vacationing on the Emerald Coast, we decided to purchase our own piece of paradise where we could bring our entire family (including the dogs) to enjoy the beautiful white sand and turquoise surf. We have amazing memories of spending beach time with our 4-legged children, our teenager, our grown children, and our grandchildren.

Great place to stay

  • 5 of 5

Condo is in a perfect location.

Far enough away from Harbor Village and the crowds associated with it but close enough to visit daily. Beaches were clean and did not feel crowded. Restaurants within walking distance. While not considered ocean front this unit was a shorter walk than some ocean front condos we have stayed at in the past.

Condo was very clean and exactly as advertised. Owners were great to work with and if traveling back to Destin I would stay here again.

A great place!

This location is a great area of Destin. The condo is a well kept, clean unit with a beautiful view of the beach. We have stayed here several times and we always have a wonderful time. The owners are great to work with.

Perfect in all ways - cleanliness, kitchen supplies, towels, swimming pools, across the street from beach, proximity to shopping, dining and entertainment. Would definitely rent this unit again.

Exceeded my expectations!

  • 5 of 5

My family had an excellent stay at this condo. The owners were great to deal with and everything went so smoothly. The location of this place was perfect and we felt right at home. Great place for kids. My husband and I would definitely stay here again. It was very clean and smelled good! I loved the decor it was very tasteful..the pictures of this condo do not do it justice...even though the pictures of it are good!!

Thanks Patti for sharing your charming beach condo with my family...God Bless you!

Great location to beach

  • 5 of 5

I just returned and was pleased with this 5-day rental. Communication with owner was extremely efficient and timely. Unit was clean for the most part, just a few places where I felt the need to wipe down. Master bed was very comfortable, sleeper the usual, bunk bed ok for kids but slightly uncomfortable for adult but we knew that going in. We were able to hear children (assumed) running in the unit above us--mildly annoying.

Beach access was awesome (given we weren't staying ON the beach). Although we arrived as Tropical Debby was forming in the Gulf and persisted for the first few days, we still enjoyed sitting on the beach without going in the water (double red flags). The complex pools (2) were somewhat small and usually filled with kids--not our idea of vacation as 3 adults. The location is in close proximity to lots of shopping and eateries.

Only downside was lugging luggage up the condo steps (note: no elevator).

It met our needs quite nicely and I would stay here again if we couldn't afford to stay directly ON the beach.

Owner's Response: Thanks so much for taking the time to review our unit. I especially appreciate your comment about the stairs. Although it's stated in the Lease Info, I definitely think it bears repeating that there are no elevators anywhere in the complex, especially since our unit is on the second floor. Please come back to visit - we'd love to have you stay with us again!
