About Cynthia Denman

I am sure we are just like everyone else that comes to Destin. Once you come you just can't wait to return. Sitting on the beach the entire day can make a girl happy!! Then shop later. Laughing. We did not have beaches like this in the small town in MS where I am from. Just so happy to have property in Destin that we all can ENJOY!

Cynthia Denman purchased this condo in 2004

Why Cynthia Denman chose Emerald Coast-Destin Area

This condo is in a warm neighborhood part of Destin. The street in front of the condo is only a two lane which makes for slower traffic. This makes it a comfortable place to take a walk and enjoy the area at a slower pace and just relax.

What makes this condo unique

This building is built close to the water so you can hear the waves really well.

My wife and I have stayed multiple times at Cynthia's beach condo in Destin for the past few years. Every time we come down from Chicago she has been very helpful  and responsive to our needs. The condo is very comfortable, tastefully decorated and well furnished.  Having grown up in Florida not far from the ocean I very much appreciate this location right on the beach. The condo, situated on the second floor of the building, provides a great view along with privacy. You really can spot dolphin pods slowly swimming by not far from shore. Also the US Air Force puts on almost daily overflights going in/out of close by Eglin Air Force base.  The neighborhood surrounding the condo location is almost completely residential and very quiet. All of retired life's necessities ( shopping mall, grocery store, movie theaters, restaurants, etc. ) are close by. To sum it all up this property is fantastic.

A little piece of heaven

  • 4 of 5

If I owned a beachside condo this is exactly what I would go for. It is the perfect location,

and size. Overall the property was well maintained. My only complaint is housekeeping service is in my opinion probably over paid for the job they do. We had clean sheets and towels and bathrooms, but it looked as if they had not cleaned the floors in the whole condo. I opened vanity drawer in bathroom to put my makeup in it and it was full of hair as was the bathroom floor. I wiped it out but chose to use the shelves instead. I looked for a broom to sweep floors but did not find one. Might be good idea to buy one for condo. I do not mind sweeping and trying to leave someone's property in good shape, especially where sand is involved. It may be good idea to visit unannounced and check things out. Overall, we

loved everything about the condo. Can't wait to visit again.

Location, location, location!

  • 5 of 5

The location of this property can't be beat! Walk out the door, down the hall, out the gate and you are on the beach! Settle in to the chairs and umbrella beachside and there was no need to go anywhere else. I will never stay anywhere but beachfront again after seeing people lugging their kids and gear down the streets and across Highway 98 to get to the water! Watched a storm roll through from the balcony and after saw dolphins swimming by! Bring a hammock as at the end of the stairway to the beach there are poles suitable to attach it to, this became one of my kids favorite activities in the evening. Plenty of space for this family of 5. We did find that the pull out bed in the couch was uncomfortable, as most are, so we used an air mattress that we purchased instead. We appreciated the keyless entry so we could pull right in to the parking lot after our full day drive and have immediate access to the unit. Overall it was just as described and we would love to return to Destin someday!

Perfect

  • 5 of 5

This condo was absolutely perfect for the two of us! Spacious, all necessary appliances, great tv and above all a wonderful view. We even saw manatees (I was shocked) from our balcony. Mostly it was nice dealing with Cynthia instead of a crowded rental office. We had our codes upon arrival and we're all set. A fantastic vacation!

The cutely decorated condo with a view!

  • 4 of 5

What I loved:

*This little place had the most beautiful view! You literally are just steps away from the sand/ocean! I loved the location too! It is on the less crowded/populated end of scenic Rt. 98.

*Although there is only 1 1/2 baths, they both open up to the shower/laundry area. The shower/bathtub is definitely dated, but does put out fairly good water pressure!

*All three boys (10 year olds) swam in the pool and seemed to enjoy it. It is right out front, in the parking lot.

What I didn't love so much:

*My twin boys and I went with another adult and her son. There is one bedroom with a king bed, then two built in twin bunks, and a sleeper sofa. My friend and her son took the bedroom with the king bed. They said, comfort wise, it was just ok. I initially and happily took the sleeper sofa. My view was the ocean! But, for two nights, I got little to no sleep. It is a very thin and uncomfortable mattress. The third night, I put the couch back together and just slept on it. It was an upgrade from the sleeper mattress, but not by much. I happen to lay with one of my son's on the bottom built in bunk and finally got a good night sleep. I found that mattress to be comfortable, but there is pilling on the mattress, and even with a sheet on the bed, you feel the pilling bumps any time you adjust your position or move. I never did try the top bunk because it was a thinner mattress than the one on the bottom, so I just stuck there.

**I realize this is a personal preference thing, of course, but if you read reviews like I do, it's just nice to know what other people thought.**

*The kitchen/kitchen appliances could stand to be updated, but it served our purpose for the week.

*The two TV's at the end of each bunk did not work. I really wish I would have known this when booking as we considered this a bonus for the boys. Someone came TWICE to try and fix them (we had to adjust OUR schedule to let them in and be there. One day they didn't even show after we waited during the allotted time we were given. The third time they came, we were unaware they were coming and we were awakened by knocking at the door at 8am.) *Again, no fault to the owner, but I wish I would have been told ahead of time that those particular TV's weren't working. It was an inconvenience for sure! BOTH techs said this was a fix that would require NEW wiring coming from the outside AND going thru other units. The boys never got to use those during the trip.
