Walk to restaurants. Cool off in the large community pool that is seasonally heated. Try your hand at tennis or shuffleboard, located on-site. Prepare local delicacies on the complex's outdoor grills. Or make arrangements to entertain in the neighborhood clubhouse. There is no through-traffic, so families with children can easily enjoy the outdoors.

Everything you need is nearby and Destin offers so many different recreational activities, there is something for every member of the family. From arts and culture to eco-tourism, from fine dining to quick bites, from sports and adventure to shopping and spas; the Destin area has it all.

Rent a boat or paddleboard. Play golf or stumble upon a treasure along the beach or at one of the many shopping areas. Go deep-sea fishing or explore the famed, expansive Choctawhatchee Bay in what is known as the "world's luckiest fishing village." Destin-dining is also world-famous among foodies and regular folks alike. You can skydive, sail, cruise, dolphin watch, and explore the many opportunities that await you on the emerald shores of this stretch of the incredibly scenic panhandle of Florida. Or you can simply exhale and relax...

Guestbook comments from the manager

Our family loved the property. It was clean and comfortable and had all the utensils and bedding needed for our family. The proximity to the beach is wonderful and the breeze from the ocean comes right through the back sliding doors into the master bedroom. Would stay here again. Affordable and great location!

Southern Winter 2017

  • 4 of 5

We had a wonderful time at Chateau Le Mer and the condo was very comfortable and provided everything we needed with the exception of beach chairs and umbrella. However, those could be rented by the day at the beach. Chateau Le Mer is pet friendly so Allie and Bogey had as much fun as we did. The guests in the other condos were very friendly and welcoming to newcomers. We would definitely return if our next Southern Winter plans take us the Emerald Coast which by the way was breathtaking. We were pleasantly surprised. Weather was pretty good as well with very few cool days but us Minnesotans didn't mind that at all! Shore Dreams were very responsive to any problems we had with the condo and gracious. Thanks to Sharon, Casey and Chandra! A Good Time Was Had By All.

Plenty of room, great beach condo!!

  • 4 of 5

We stayed at this condo in mid-July, and overall it was WONDERFUL! We had 4 adults and 2 kids, and there was definitely plenty of room. The kitchen was very well-stocked with spices and other things that you may not find at most rentals, which was a huge plus. It is very close to the beach, just a short walk across the street. The pool is nice (and very close to the unit), and it's heated so that even after the rain it was a nice temperature. We really enjoyed sitting on the back deck and watching the ocean while drinking our coffee every morning.

There were a few cons to this place, but I will stress *very few*.

1 - The master bedroom has too few vents and therefore you need a fan to keep it bearably cool.

2 - The mattress in the master bedroom *desperately* needs replacing. The others were fine with us, but my parents were not too thrilled with their bedroom.

That is really all the complaining I have to do about this condo. The rental fee was very reasonable and I would definitely stay there again. We realized that the coffee carafe had a crack in it on our first morning there, and the owner quickly reimbursed us for the replacement one that we bought. She also had a heating and air company out to clean and check the a/c unit while we were there because apparently the tenants previous to us had complained that it wasn't cool enough. There were plenty of toys for the kids to play with, which was another very nice touch. This is an older unit (most likely late 70's, early 80's), but it has had enough updating to make it very comfortable for a week-long stay with 2 families!

We stayed here May 19-22, 2011 and were terribly disappointed. The condo was very spacious, which was great for our family of six. The beautiful, clean beach was just a short walk across a non-busy, two-lane street. It was also in a convenient location to other attractions. However, the furniture and beds were wore out and in need of upgrading. Three of our six guest spent our vacation sleeping on the floor. The manager of the condo is aware but is not the owner. This would be a great property if a good night's sleep were possible. We would rent here again, but only if assured the mattresses and furniture were new.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your feedback. Here are some of the updates that occurred last year: All mattresses were replaced between Fall of 2011 and Spring of 2012. During this same period, all of the bedrooms were painted, a 50 inch TV and a new washer dryer combo were purchased. We also added a new dishwasher in December and some new light fixtures.

" The Ultimate"

  • 5 of 5

The Photos online does this condo no justice. The open floor plan gives you the feel that you are in a 3 bedroom house. Apartment/Condo on the outside and House/Home on the inside. The beach is so close that we were there everyday sometimes twice a day. when we were not on the beach we took a very short drive to the outlet stores to do what girls love to do. SHOP. GREAT SHOPPING!!!! and when it was time to eat, if we did'nt want to cook we took a short walk across the street to Captain Dave's. Everything is so close. The name of this place should be " THE ULTIMATE" just for the Convenience it provides.
