Great Location

  • 4 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The convenience to the beach, walking/running trail and to restaurants was excellent. Destin is a place we love to visit so the location and affordability of this property is great. The covered parking is a bonus and it appears the kitchen, dining and living area on the 2nd floor has been remodeled. I loved being able to walk across scenic 98 and be right on the beach. Also, having beach chairs and beach toys provided was a definite plus, although the beach umbrella needs replacing as it is a bit worn. Overall our stay at this unit was great. The only negative was that the washing machine shook so much during the spin cycle that we had to shut it off and no longer use which made washing towels difficult. This was only a minor inconvenience that in no way affected how much we enjoyed our stay.

Year #2 was even better!!

  • 5 of 5

This was our 2nd year staying at Costa Vista. We love that our unit is right across the street from the beautiful beach and next door to the pool! The condo is wide open and very comfortable with many nice amenities. The area is breathtaking and offers the perfect backdrop for walking, riding bikes or merely relaxing and taking it all in. Persons of all ages could easily find something to do here. It doesn't feel overcrowded with people and commercialization, yet many shops and such are so very close by. We Love it and look forward to visiting again next year. We might even make 2 trips down!

Great for family beach stay!

  • 5 of 5

We arrived on July 11th and was immediately impressed with our accommodations. The condo was spacious and clean as advertised. The kitchen was fully functional. We loved being right next to the pool. It never was too loud even thought it was next our balcony. The beach was across the street and easily accessible. There are plenty of beach chairs and couple of umbrellas in the condo that we used at the beach everyday. We also loved having our own outdoor faucet and shower to rinse off after returning from the beach. The only negative was the pull out bed in the living room was not comfortable. We had to put the couch cushions under the mattress before anyone could sleep on it. Overall it was a great week and if we return to Destin, we would stay here again.

LOVED this place!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay in Destin at this condo! The decor and appliances are updated; the keyless entry is very convenient; the bed was super comfortable; the view is beautiful, and the beach was perfect, with crystal clear water. We were close to everything. Nothing is more than 3 miles away - Baytowne Wharf; outlet malls, Walmart, restaurants, CVS, Walgreeens, and beach stores. We highly recommend it, and we are already planning our next trip to Destin!
