Chateau La Mer lives up to it's name-it is truly "by the sea," just across from a private section of one of the most beautiful beaches in the world. Stroll Destin's famous glittering white sands and glide under the clear turquoise waters of the Gulf of Mexico, only steps away from this spacious, pet-friendly, two-bedroom/two-bath, upstairs condo overlooking the large community lap pool that is heated in the winter. Come "home" to relax in the tranquil decor of this island-themed oasis with vaulted ceiling and open-concept floor plan.

The fully equipped kitchen features a breakfast bar that adds additional seating to the dining area. The spacious, comfy living area has a queen sleeper sofa, flat screen TV and DVD player, and opens to a furnished balcony where you can enjoy a cool drink and the sea breezes with a beautiful view of the pool. After a long day at the beach, sleep soundly in the master bedroom with king bed, flat screen and private bath. Tuck the kids into the second bedroom, complete with two full-sized beds and another flat screen. The two soothing, neutral bathrooms provide the privacy desired by families, couples or groups. Community laundry facilities are located about 20 feet away, behind the pool and clubhouse, so you can travel home with clean clothes. But we warn you-it's truly hard to leave here!

And don't leave Fido behind! The Chateau La Mer community is perfect for pets. There are large grassy areas and sidewalks for walking beside the breathtakingly beautiful beach. And the amenities don't stop there. In addition to the large heated pool, this neighborhood offers well-kept tennis courts and grilling area, a rentable clubhouse and more. And there's no through-traffic in this highly desirable community-a feature greatly appreciated by families with kids and/or pets.

Walk to nearby restaurants or pick up local seafood for a relaxing evening at your home-away-from-home. Everything you need is nearby and Destin offers so many different recreational activities, there is something for every member of the family.

From arts and culture to eco-tourism, from fine dining to quick bites, from sports and adventure to shopping and spas; the Destin area has it all. Rent a boat or paddleboard. Play golf or stumble upon a treasure on the beach or at one of the many shopping areas. Go deep-sea fishing or explore the famed, expansive Choctawhatchee Bay in what is known as the "world's luckiest fishing village." Destin-dining is also world-famous among foodies and regular folks alike. You can skydive, sail, cruise, dolphin watch, and explore the many opportunities that await you on the emerald shores of this stretch of the incredibly scenic panhandle of Florida. Or you can simply exhale and relax...

Pet Friendly Spacious Condo

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time! The condo was perfect for what we needed. The community was very nice. Even though this unit did not have washer/dryer there was onsite laundry at club house. The pool was great because it was heated and the gulf was still cold. They kids spent most of the time in the pool. We had an issue where the prior renters stole all the batteries to the remotes. We let them know through the easy to use app and they showed up on Easter morning to provide us batteries. That was completely unexpected. They have great service.

Comfortable and quiet

  • 5 of 5

We rented this unit for the entire month of December 2015 and we rented it through the property managment company. We found it to be very clean when we arrived. We did have a few maintance issues our first week, however, the property manager was very responsive. We slept in the king bedroom and found the bed very comfortable. My cousins visited for 4 days and used the queen rooms and they said the bed was comfortable. They also thought the condo was spacious, clean and nicely set up. The balcony screen was torn but it did not affect our use of the balcony or getting fresh air. The TV and wifi were a plus, especially since we had some rainy days. The unit was in a nice, quiet, and safe community just a driveway's walk to the private beach access. We enjoyed our walks around the community and along the scenic roadway and beach.

Do NOT Recommend!!! OLD and DIRTY

  • 1 of 5

Stayed at this unit for 2 weeks and it was the toughest 2 weeks of my life. Where to start, place was filthy,dusty and EXTREMELY out dated. Master king bed made noises from the old springs and you can actually feel the spring sticking up into your back.Trash was left on the floor when I checked in.Porch was ok with a decent view of the snow bird pool but the screen was ripped to shreds on the bottom so no fresh air PERIOD unless you like having flying insects inside with you. DO NOT RECOMMEND!!!!
