Perfect place to escape to

  • 5 of 5

My family and I absolutely loved our stay at this property. The rooms were spacious, comfortable and very clean. The pictures and theme of the unit perfectly symbolized the feeling of being on vacation. We loved looking out over the ocean whenever we looked out the large windows. A nice bonus was how awesome the view was from the front door as well. The only negative was how fast the week went! We definitely hope to come back to this property and unit.

Perfect getaway!

  • 5 of 5

Can't say enough good things. The condo itself is lovely. Tidy with comfortable furnishings and very comfortable beds! The view was stunning. Especially nice to sit out on the morning since the unit faces more southwest. The proximity of beach access spoiled us! (no drive to the beach) We made use of the beach service-renting chairs and an umbrella and it was very convenient. We had 4 girlfriends staying in the unit (visiting Destin for a destination wedding) and we had plenty of room for the 4 of us. The Tops'l Resort property in general is VERY NICE. We love this end of Miramar Beach, quieter and away from the more commercialized end of things in Destin. (but very close to the nice outlet mall and groceries!) Beautiful beach and a perfect condo. And thank you Bill for your prompt response to our pre-travel questions!

Owner's Response: Thank you very much for taking the time to submit your review. We realize how important a really fun and hassle free vacation is to everyone. It is very gratifying to know that the families that stay in our condo enjoy it as much as our family does when we stay there. We try our very best to ensure that your stay, from the time you reserve the condo, to check in, to check out, is a great experience and that your expectations were met and hopefully exceeded. Thanks again, Bill and Julie

Wonderful place to stay

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful vacation from planning to vacation. The owners are exceptional to work with and the place is absolutely beautiful. The beach is incredible with white sugary sand. I would highly recommend this place for a perfect vacation.

Owner's Response: Thank you very much for taking the time to rate our condo, and for your kind words. It is very gratifying to hear that families enjoy our condo, the complex, and the entire area, as our family does! We have many families who return year after year, and we hope that each time they do, there is something new for them to experience. This past year we put all new patio furniture on the deck, a new bluetooth speaker in the living room, and a new high efficiency hvac system to ensure your comfort while staying in the unit. The beach area remains absolutely gorgeous and Wyndham Resorts continues to maintain and to upgrade the entire complex. Again, thank you for your comments and we are really glad to have shared our condo with your family. Best of health and happiness to your family this coming year! Bill and Julie

Thoroughly enjoyed this unit and the area

  • 5 of 5

Stayed for several days in April 2013 to celebrate our 30th anniversary. We are typically Siesta Key travelers but wanted to find something a little closer....we had tried the Destin area before and were not pleased at all with the crowds and beach area. This area was MUCH nicer...the beach was absolutely beautiful, the grounds at Tops'l were very nice, and this unit was absolutely perfect. Pictures were great, but wow, it was really very nice. The owners were very easy to work with...we would definitely come back. Thank you so much for sharing!

Beautiful view

  • 4 of 5

Our experience from booking to checking in was extremely easy and the owners were delightful to work with. The view in the pictures do not do justice to the panoramic view available from the main living and balcony! Spring break this year was about 20 degrees cooler and cloudier than last year so having the oversized balcony with the beach view allowed us to enjoy the beach even on the days we couldn't actually go. The beds were yummy comfortable, and I miss the mattress now that I am home! The only reason I did not give the property 5 stars was due to the resort itself rather than the unit itself. And if you properly budget you can avoid our unpleasant surprise in finding that the resort does NOT provide beach chairs. They have a service that provides beach chairs for a daily rental fee per chair. This can be a quite substantial additional expense depending upon how many chairs you need, whether you require an umbrella or cabana, and how many days you plan on going to the beach. So please remember to factor this expense in to the actual rental amount. However, had we done our homework and not made assumptions based on other resorts we have stayed at, we would have been prepared. Overall we made great memories, and are grateful the owners graciously shared their home with us!

Owner's Response: Thank you for the kind comments. We have owned the condo for 3 1/2 years. We purchased our condo because we have travelled extensively and finally came to the conclusion that Destin was our favorite place. We chose this unit because of the great views of the beach and the skyline as well as the very friendly family layout of the unit. The 10 foot ceilings and the full length windows on the patio/beach side give an open and spacious feeling. We are very happy and appreciative when people who choose to stay with us during their vacation take the time to e-mail us and tell us how much they enjoyed themselves. We are especially proud of how many of the families that have stayed with us in the past, re-book for their next Destin visit. The Topsl complex is beautiful. Our building is right on the beach, and there are lots of things to do. The pools offer tables, chairs, and lounges that are free of charge, but unfortunately when you go tho the beach, the set ups are not free and are rather expensive. I have inquired about the extra charge for the set-ups on the beach, but the Topsl complex does not own the beach service. As owners, we pay an extra $28/day (amenity package) during your stay so that you, our guest, can have full use of the facilities on property at no extra charge..(note: not all owners offer the amenity package for their guests). I would love it if the beach set ups were included but they are not. When we stay in our condo and go to the beach, we are also charged for the set ups at the same rate that the guest is. Again, thank you for taking the time to send in a comment and we are very happy that your experience (other than the beach set up fees) was very positive. We hope to see you again on your next trip to Destin.........Sincerely, Bill and Julie

Great Penthouse!

  • 4 of 5

Me and my family stayed at this location (Penthouse Suite 1510-Tides) on Sept 10-12. The amenities were amazing and it was just an elevator ride to the beach. Everything was provided and was amazing. I would highly recomment this to other visitors. The process from check-in to check-out was seamless. Also the communication with the owner prior to my arrival was just as outstanding. I had not problem getting my questions answered and information on hand. Please take a second look at this place, if you are thinking of renting in Destin Beach.
