Great View--Could Use a Good Cleaning--Several Surprises

  • 2 of 5

Our family of five stayed in this condo in October, 2016. The view from this unit is spectacular. It's direct oceanfront on the third floor. The living room is well equipped with updated furniture and a nice flat screen tv with plenty of channels. This is the best part of the condo. Now for the downside. Overall the cleanliness of the condo is well below average. At checkin there was sand everywhere from the floors to the bed and even the showers. The beds seem to be quite old and are not comfortable. Equally important is that both bathrooms are very old and need updating. The master bathroom toilet runs constantly, whistles and flushes about sixty percent of the time. There is not a toaster which is generally a standard offering. The listing failed to disclose the extensive construction on the deck by the pool which resulted in loud noise throughout the day and limited use of the larger pool. The listing also failed to disclose the property is for sale. On day two the landlord informed me that our unit would be shown by a realtor at 1pm the next day. He did not ask, but told me. Once I pushed back he agreed this was inappropriate given the lack of disclosure. In short, if you are not concerned about cleanliness or maintenance and just want a good view this is the spot for you. With some updating this condo could be really nice. It's clear now why there are very limited pictures online except for the living room and external property.

Owner's Response: All of the issues have been resolved that that I had control of. The off season discount, hopefully made up for the disturbances that I have no control over. Thanks for your input! Robbie

Perfect for a family

  • 5 of 5

This condo was everything we wanted in our Destin vacation. We'd start with a relaxing breakfast out on the patio, then head down to the beach, spend some time at the pool. Some days we'd head out for snorkeling or dolphin cruise excursions. The location of the condo is perfect: close enough to the busier parts of Destin for easy access to anything you want to do, but far enough away to be quiet and relaxing. I would definitely recommend this place to friends.

Great complex! Unit needs larger tv's, front bedroom mattresses were not comfortable and sheets did not fit well. Needs nicer and more outdoor patio furniture. Needs light bulbs for master bath vanity.

Great Visit!

  • 5 of 5

This is the second time our family has stayed in one of Robbie's properties. The condo was clean, spacious, and Robbie did a fantastic job communicating to us before our arrival. We had no issues during our trip. The view from this condo is great. We will definitely be coming back in the years to come.

Absolutely amazing!!!

  • 5 of 5

The property absolutely exceeded all of our expectations. We will most certainly rent from Robbie again, I wouldn't want to stay anywhere else. The condo had an amazing view, it was very clean, the pools were amazing. We had a wonderful experience.
