About Sylvia Bass

Retired financial executive; grandmother of four - and a lifelong beach bum.

Sylvia Bass purchased this condo in 1999

Why Sylvia Bass chose Emerald Coast-Destin Area

Destin was a favorite family vacationing spot and it just seemed logical to purchase

a 'little piece of paradise' to share with the grandchildren. As serendipities along the

way, I've hosted wedding parties, family reunions and 'escapes' for the girls, sometimes

three generations and made lots of friends with my guests.

What makes this condo unique

This is the perfect place to 'chill out', relax and escape the worries of the world. With all the amenities of home, you never want to leave Destin. Bring the laptop and stay connected with

family and friends(yes we have WI-FI) cook your meals in the updated kitchen or eat out and enjoy the fine coastal cuisine. And take time to get plenty of sand between your toes - isn't that therapeutic!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Had a great time in Destin...always do. Your condo was very comfortable, and clean. Attractively decorated and adequately

equipped. Thanks for sharing with us

Needs work

  • 5 of 5

There were pros and cons with this condo..

Pros: The condo was very roomy and decorated nicely. The owner, Mrs Sylvia, was very nice to work with.

Cons: The security code never punched in for us. We had to call owner then go get a key from security at the check in booth. Security isn't there 24/7 like it states in the description. The drains in both bathrooms won't drain fast enough to take a shower. You have to stand in a tub of water while taking a shower. Rugs in the bathrooms are very dirty. Carpets in both bedrooms are stained and filthy. Your feet get black walking around barefooted. It won't get any cooler than 73 degrees in the condo no matter what temp you set it to. That was very uncomfortable for my child who has asthma. It wasn't cool at night gir us. The master bedroom is very hot. Patio door leading out to the deck from the master bedroom won't lock. . I wish I'd known these things b4 I got there. I usually don't write reviews on properties but this condo needs some maintence work bad!!

Owner's Response: Over the past twelve years, hundreds of guests have successfully used the lock box. I not only provide the code, but instructions on how to use the lock box. The box works fine...user error. Security was there to provide a key upon my approval..and yes we do have 24/7 security. When not at the guard station, they are out on patrol or inspecting. There's also a maintenance dept on site, to take care of clogged drains and other minor repairs, when they are reported. Interestingly sand has a way of making it's way from the beach to the condo and down the drains. On checkout day, housekeeping reported the inside temperature was 71 degrees. Summers are hot and humid in Florida - 100-105 degree temperatures. Not everyone can tolerate the heat, much less appreciate it. Carpets are steam cleaned frequently, always before each season, but unless guests remove shoes at the front door, yes they will get dirty. Feedback is always appreciated, so I can make the accommodations more comfortable for future guests.

Roomy, close to beach, heated pool

  • 5 of 5

Fabulous condo with very accommodating owner. Sylvia was a joy to work with. Her condo was clean, close to the beach, and had everything you could need. Slept six on great beds, two queens in BR 1 and a king in BR2. Sofa sleeper was comfortable as well. Kitchen was clean and well appointed. Would definitely stay there again!

Perfect Location with Great View

  • 5 of 5

I am always very skeptical to rent from someone that I do not know, but when talking with Sylvia I felt like I was talking with family. She is very personable and very honest. Her condo is beautifully located in the heart of Destin. The ocean is right outside our door. My husband and I enjoyed reading in the morning while listening to the ocean waves and watching the parasailers go by. My oldest daughter and I walked the beach every night before bed. The pool is beautiful and clean and the beaches are breathtaking!!! The sand is amazing.

The condo is exactly like the pictures Sylvia has posted. It is very clean, which is very important to me. I have three small children (6 and 17 month old twins) and there was plenty of space for all of them to run around. The kitchen is fully stocked with every appliance you can think of. It was so nice to come in and not have to worry about going out and buying paper plates, etc. The beds were SOOOO comfortable. I was kind of bummed because I realized I had forgotten my pillow and you never know what you are going to get, but I slept so good on the bed and the pillows were great. I also loved having a washer and dryer right in the condo. This is a very safe location, gated community, and friendly area. We cannot wait to come back and use this condo. Thank you Sylvia for making our week a truly memorable week for my family.

Well equipped condo with nice view

  • 5 of 5

I've stayed at a lot of condos at the beach over the years, but this one was the best equipped and very clean. There is wonderful internet service which was critical to us due to our jobs that follow us everywhere :( There were 5 of us there and we had everything we needed. Since we went fishing and caught a lot of fish, we did a lot of cooking. We found the kitchen very well equipped. There was everything you would expect, plus a lot of extras like a blender, a George Foreman grill and lots more equipment. There were plenty of dishtowels as well as bath towels. The beds were super comfortable and there were extra pillows. There were even plenty of hangars. The view is a lot better than the pictures show it to be. And the beach is closer than it looks in the pictures. The Winn Dixie was very close by which made food shopping quick and easy. There were 3 beach chairs and even beach toys. The water pressure was good. It was quiet. Spacious for a 2 bedroom. I loved the way the key was taken care of. You'll have to ask Mrs. Bass about that. There was a great selection of DVDs and puzzles and books for a rainy day (which we did not have at all; the weather was perfect). The beach is beautiful, as you would expect in Destin. It's about a 30 minute walk on the beach to the jetty where there were tidepools to look around in and find some sea life like crabs. Having a washer and dryer was so convenient. We spent May 26-June 2, 2012 at Mrs. Bass' condo and were very pleased. She was lovely to deal with. Ate a good meal at Gilligans and enjoyed shopping at the outlet center.

Wonderful Place at a great rate

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at shoreline towers twice now. This is our second condo in the same tower and while we have loved both, we found this one to be well equipped, roomy, nicely decorated, and at a great rate! We traveled to Destin with our 4 children, ages 3, 4, 5, and 16. The second bedroom was large enough to easily accomodate all four kids - the tv in their room was especially nice! The kitchen is roomy enough for all of us to move around in, the table accomodated the whole family, and the family room is plenty big too! The master bedroom is perfect to allow mom and dad to escape the hubub of the kids! The fact that the master bedroom looks out to the shore is just wonderful! Waking up every morning is a dream come true when you remember that you are nestled in paradise! Thanks Sylvia for sharing your wonderful condo! We're hoping to come back this year again!

Owner's Response: Thanks Kristianne. Your feedback is both appreciated and necessary in meeting both our objectives. Your girls are probably still talking about the sandcastles they built on our beautiful beaches. I look forward to your return this year.

Relaxing week in Destin

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our week's stay at the condo; it was very convenient to the Destin area, very clean and the grounds were well maintained. The entire condo was comfortable and the kitchen was a joy to use - adequately stocked with all the appliances and cookware. The beds were so very comfortable - wish we could have brought the master suite home with us! We met some lovely people during our stay and hopefully we will be able to return next year. All in all, we had a glorious time in Destin. Thank you for sharing your beautiful place with us.
