About Shubu Mitra

We live in Atlanta with our two kids and enjoy beach vacations more than anything else.

Shubu Mitra purchased this condo in 2011

Why Shubu Mitra chose Emerald Coast-Destin Area

We fell in love with Destin on our first visit 6 years back. At that time we stayed in a condo in Tops'l and since then we have been back many times. In 2011,, we decided to buy a condo in our favorite resort...and hope we create some family memories here before the kids grow up and head out to college.

What makes this condo unique

Coffee or an evening drink on the balcony. A walk on the beach just before sunset...when things are calm and quiet. Across the street from the Village of Baytowne Wharf with its many attractions and dining options.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a great time at this condo. The Tops'l Resort was very clean and well maintained - even on a holiday week. The pools were nice and we were just far enough from Destin to not get in any of the daily traffic. But - we were close enough to Destin to enjoy the fun amusement parks and nice dining. Condo had most of what we needed for a week long stay. We just grabbed some stuff at the local grocery store and we were set. Baytowne Wharf was literally right across the street! This was a super fun place to hang out in the evening, enjoy a nice dinner and drinks and my son was plenty entertained. Local outlet mall was very nice too. Plenty of great stores.

We liked the fact that we didn't have to mess with a room key. Keyless entry was great. Next time we would like to be a little closer to the beach because with small kids and all your beach gear, coolers, towels, etc it was a little stroll.

This condo was very quiet and right by the elevators for easy access to the parking lot and our condo's pool.

All in all we enjoyed our stay and would definately consider coming back again.

If you have little ones pick up a good kite for the beach. That was a fun experience for the family!

the best beach vacation EVERRR!

  • 5 of 5

when i think of a vacation with family...i think of a place that offers exquisite views of the ocean, large bedrooms, exclusive modern amenities like an in-built jacuzzi and lots of interior space for the kids to run around...this Tops'l ocean-view condo offered all of these and more...we lived there for about a week and had a lot of fun both at the beach which is a short walk away and the pool which is right below the apartment building...the living room and the bedrooms offer panoramic views of the ocean and the horizon...the interiors were very tasteful and made us feel at home...the furniture is new and comfortable...the condo was equipped with TVs in every room, a refrigerator, a dishwasher and a we never had to step out of the premises to take care of any our chores...all in all, this place made sure that all of us had a great time in Destin :-)

Perfect Family Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We had the perfect vacation here. The condo is beautiful, large, clean and so comfortable. I took 5 college students on their fall break. We watched football, cooked meals, played basketball, swam in the pool, and best of all enjoyed the gorgeous beach. It was 82 and sunny every day. The views from the balconies were stunning every morning and evening. We enjoyed GoKarts, putt-putt, outlet shops and restaurants. The owner was delightful to work with. So thankful for this special time - it is a memory with my children I will cherish.

Excellent stay in an excellent property!

  • 5 of 5

We had never been to this part of Florida, and although Destin is quite commercial, it does not take a lot for you to like it. The beach is awesome: beautiful white powdery sand and plenty of space for you to find a spot even in the middle of summer. And if you want, it doesn't take a long drive to find nature, peace and quiet. Highly recommended. The condo itself is really nice: roomy, bright, walking distance to the beach, plenty of amenities and very good service if something goes wrong (our internet wasn't working and it was solved the same day. Try that with your cable operator!).

Owner's Response: Thanks for your feedback. The beaches are really something special...powdery white sand and clear emerald doesn't get better than this. Happy to see you enjoyed the place and yes the property managers do a good job. Hope you see you back soon. Best wishes.

Great stay in a awesome location

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay at this condo. Loved the view, the accommodations were super clean. It was perfect for our two families to stay in. The walk to the beach was great. The pools were awesome and conveniently located and super clean. The beach was not crowded at all as it would be in Destin. Also, close to some great restaurants and grocery stores. Owner was super helpful and attended to our every need. The only issue we had was with the plumbing and he solved it fast.

Great refreshing break !!

  • 5 of 5

One of our best beach vacations . Lovely cosy apartment with a great view of the clear blue sea . The nearest beach is a 3 minute walk from the apartment and is gorgeous - white sands , clear waters - pure bliss . Most of the other beaches and the restaurants were less than 10 minutes away . Great tennis courts too in the apartment complex .
