Girl’s Trip

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this condo from February 15th-18th. We take an annual girl’s trip to Destin, but this was the best place we have ever stayed. Our manager, Mara, was the most gracious and conscientious host ever. She thought of everything we might need, and left us a wonderful “welcome basket” that had all kind of yummy goodies in it. She even had chilled beverages in the fridge for us. I have never stayed at a condo that was so well stocked with just the essentials much less all the other everyday things she thought of. The condo is just beautiful, and the view is to die for. We would have loved to stay even longer and will definitely be returning here. The beds are so comfortable, too.

The best part was the fact that Mara gave specific check in instructions and made sure that the Security staff knew we were coming. She even texted me ahead of time, during my drive, and after arrival to check on me to make sure I arrived ok. Mara then called later to make sure I had everything I needed and that we were comfortable. Who does that? I have never had that type of customer service with any other management before. Thanks, Mara!! You are awesome!!

New to VRBO

  • 5 of 5

We have always stayed at corporate rental units in the past. This was our first VRBO experience. We loved it. We did not arrive until midnight due to our flight arrival time. I was so shocked when we walked in and found a basket of goodies. At the moment, it felt like it was life-saving because almost everything was closed at that hour in October. I loved how there were staples in the condo. One of the parts that I hate most of going to Destin is the pre-packing of "everything we might need" or buying duplicates when we are there and hauling them home. As for the condo, it was tastefully decorated and very comfortable. Mara was a fantastic hostess. She checked with us periodically to make sure everything was ok. I also enjoyed the patio furniture. We spend a lot of our time either on the beach or on the balcony. It was perfect and the view was incredible. Thank you for providing your home to us.

Perfect weekend getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay. Mara was very easy to communicate with. The condo was very clean and had everything we needed already there! The views and location were fantastic! We will certainly be staying here again.

Perfectly appointed

  • 5 of 5

We make at least one trip to the beach each year, and we've stayed in some nice condos. This one was the most thoughtfully stocked of any we've experienced. The owner has thought of everything down to the laundry detergent, dishwasher detergent, beach towels and shower gels. Unlike some condos that have provided tiny slivers of soap and cheap bathroom tissue, these were what you'd use in your own home - and there was more than plenty for our stay. There was a lovely gift basket and note waiting for us with a bottle of wine, breakfast bars, & cheddar popcorn. The condo was spotlessly clean, and everything was in good condition. The view of the water is PERFECT! Unfortunately, we had to cut our trip short by 2 days due to Hurricane Irma. The owner was very understanding and insisted that we should stay as long as we felt comfortable with things and leave if/when we thought we should in order to make it back home safely. From what I've read, that's not typical. And, because of it, we'll be booking this condo again in the future!
