Why Michelle Sayer chose Indian Bayou

We own other units in the Destin/Ft. Walton area and frankly we were surprised at how awesome the Palms property was. We had driven by many times and thought it was just for the older crowd. We were wrong. It is a very upbeat property with great features for guests and owners alike. We love to stay there when in town and it has become our favorite property.

What makes this condo unique

To begin with it has a very upscale feel without being stuffy. We think it reminds us of a very nice property in Las Vegas. The pool is fantastic as it is large but has lots of landscaping and construction features that offer a bit of seclusion and cover from the sun if desired. It is one of the nicest pools that we have ever been to and we love to spend a day there even though we are beach people. Pretty nice to just go down the elevator and there you are in a 4 acre pool and lagoon paradise. And did I mention there is a bar at the north end of the pool?

Great view, clean and friendly!

  • 4 of 5

Awesome view of fireworks from balcony! Clean and spacious with central location! Plus, friendly and easy to work with owner. The only reason for four stars vs five is the tv in the extra bedroom was not working so the kids were bummed, plus the wifi was not the greatest. Still would visit again! Thanks!

A much needed vacation!

  • 5 of 5

Great condo in the exact condition as advertised. Great location for those that don't mind staying away from the beach. Beach is very close by as well as several restaurants and shopping locations. We were in town for the baseball tournament which we could watch from the balcony so that was a huge plus for us.

Watch out for hidden fees.

  • 4 of 5

My family of four stayed in this condo for 3 nights. We initially arrived at the wrong property, because we were given an address to another resort by the property manager. Simple mistake. Luckily, it was only a few miles from our desired destination, and we made it there safely after only a short inconvenience. Apparently the property owners have a number of rentals and accidentally sent us the wrong check-in material. Again, this was a simple mistake and was not influential on my subpar review.

The reason for only 4 stars was because of an issue we had with our deposit. A few days after our trip we received a letter thanking us for our stay and commending us for leaving the condo in good condition. The letter detailed that our full damage deposit was refunded, BUT the actual check that accompanied the letter was for less. We called the property manager to ask why, and she said the letter was a mistake and that a certain percentage had been deducted because we used a credit card to make the reservation. We initially accepted this, but then after reviewing the listing as well as our contract - NEITHER of which mentioned an extra fee for using a credit card - we called the property manager again. She said we were correct that notice of the fees were not on her website nor in the contract, but she thought she told us. And that was that. We didn't press the matter because it wasn't worth the hassle, but it will likely keep us from renting from them again. Make sure to ask about any hidden fees when inquiring about this property. (I still haven't noticed any changes to the website about credit card fees.)

Otherwise, the condo is nice....good value for the price. The location is good, with shops and restaurants close. We drove to the beach just because we were taking a load of stuff to entertain the kids, but the shuttle is a good feature. The pool is very nice and spacious. There's even a kiddie pool and a playground that our little ones enjoyed. The condo itself is also spacious and tastefully decorated. Our girls loved the trundle bed. They also loved watching the fireworks from the balcony and planes that frequently passed, as we're very close to a small airport. If you're kids are into beach toys bring your own, because we did not see any in the condo. There are not any beach towels either, and the umbrella was pretty worthless, so plan accordingly.

All in all, we enjoyed our stay. The surprise fee was our only issue.

Owner's Response: Yes we own 3 condos in Destin and I think this is the first time that I made the mistake of sending the directions to the wrong property. I totally apologized for that to the tenant. As far as the Damage deposit goes I always tell the tenant that if they want to pay with a credit card that the service fee is going to be deducted from the $200 Deposit when I mail it back to them. I thought that I had explained it to them at the time of booking. I did go back and put that in the Rules and regulations document. So now I have back up to the Policy of paying with a credit card. Sorry for the miscommunication. Michelle Sayer
