Guestbook comments from the owner

April 2014

From the Northern parts of Wisconsin, our stay in Destin was relaxing and the condo was a PERFECT place for our family. Despite flash floods upon arrival and our stay starting off in the 50's, the Babineau condo was welcoming and truly home away from home! We enjoyed the beach during the day and evening. My boys (4 & 8) enjoyed the walk looking for turtles and sea shells. Proud to say future beach bums!

We did go to the Gulfarium and were amazed by the animals and display. Dolphin show was an added treat. Enjoyed a delicious dinner at McGuires- definitely a place to dine. I'm not a bread person but the homemade bread there is amazingly delicious. SouthBay is a very peaceful place and safe place for families! Enjoyed a couple days on the beach without being too crowded.

Simply lovely. My dad enjoyed fresh seafood at Bubba Gump's as well before leaving.

Thanks for a great place to stay in Paradise!

Family Vacation/Beach Wedding

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful week in Destin! The weather was great and the beach was beautiful. The accommodations were clean, spacious, and everything was in good working order. The pool was just a short walk and very nice. The location is very convenient as well; close to many nice restaurants, outlets, and beach stores. We loved it so much we're looking into returning again next summer! Thanks again Dennie and Terry.

Beautiful home!

  • 5 of 5

This is a very accommodating home that met all of our needs. Love the pool was just steps away from us. So much to do in a several mile stretch. My husband played golf on 2 different courses. We brought our own kayaks & braved the ocean in them. Shopped the outlet (& several other stores!). Fireworks on the beach were just spectacular. We rented beach chairs & umbrella one day, so easy to arrange. Drove down to PCB twice, just under an hours drive. Of course the ocean and beach were just beautiful and so clean. The town home is very clean, plenty of hot water for our family of 6, and spacious enough for us not to feel as though we're all on top of one another. Comfortable beds, slept like a baby every night.

This is the place we were looking for!

  • 5 of 5

My Husband & I spent from January 1st. to March 1,2015. What a wonderful location and what a wonderful home. We found the home to be well equipped and very comfortable. The owner, Dennie ans his family are very nice to deal with.We found Destin area to be full of things to do and places to eat and shop. My Husband says that we could have eaten out every meal over the two months and never eat at the same place twice! The placed we liked the best was the Surf Hut. Great food, beautiful view and great food. We went fishing on the Sweet Jody and caught Red Grouper and Conine. The captain and the crew members were wonderful and very helpful.If you are looking for a place to have a comfortable stay and lots to do this is the place for you. Dick, Cindy and Maggie May from upstate N.Y.

Lovely home and area

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time in Destin. Your home is so lovely and we enjoyed ourselves so much! The beach was fabulous and the water incredibly clear. After having vacationed on Atlantic beaches for the past 15 years, we may never go again. The beach in Destin was by far the best we have ever been too and we have now found our new vacation spot!

We enjoyed several area restaurants. Our favorite was Gilligans and the kids really enjoyed Fudpuckers. They were able to feed the alligators (look in local coupon books for a free voucher for alligator food), hold an alligator and they had a hoola-hoop contest for the kids on the dance floor. They really had a great time and the food was good too (try the pineapple slaw).

The outlet malls are not too far away, 20 minutes maybe depending on traffic. The grocery store across the street was very convenient as well as Target.

We will definitely be returning.

We are a retired couple living in the Kansas City area. We stayed in Destin at this townhouse for 6

  • 5 of 5

The property was great. It had everything that we were looking for. We are ages 69 and 87. Our grandchildren visited and were 11-18, as well as their parents. It offered something for everyone. The townhouse itself was very nice, the beds were comfortable, the kitchen was really, really well stocked with equipment. The décor was beautiful and it was very clean. The owners were so friendly, helpful and gracious. They could not have been better. The complex was in a great location for restaurants and shopping, we could walk if we wanted to. On one side out of the parking lot was businesses and the other was the beach. The pictures of the complex and the townhouse are true. My husband and grandson went deep sea fishing on the Sweet Jody and caught lots of fish, they will do that again. Our son played golf and the girls shopped. We also attended a wonderful church there. We purchased shrimp the size of your hand and cooked them our self, great. All in all it was a great trip, we have had motor homes and done winters overseas and Mexico, this is just as good. My daughter said the sand was the prettiest of anyplace she had ever been. We will go back. I might add we celebrated 47 years of marriage in Destin and enjoyed it immensely.

Owner's Response: Hello Deloris and Donald. Thank you for your lovely review of our home in Destin. We enjoyed having you as guests and were delighted to know that you had such a good time and that your son and grandchildren were able to come for a visit. I have yet to try deep sea fishing but have watched the boats come in at A.J's during the annual Fishing tournament in October. I guess you must have had a wonderful fish fry that night. Next time you are there you have to try the Royal Red Shrimps if they are in season; they taste just like lobster. I have to say that like the girls I have done my fair share of shopping when I am there. We hope we have the pleasure of having you and your family stay with us again in the future. There is always something going on in Destin so you will never get tired of it or our beautiful beach.
