Our condo is located on the beach side of Highway 98 on a beautiful five-acre fresh water lake. Fish right off your deck, or at one of the gazebos located within the complex. It's just a three minute stroll through Southbay's tropical paradise to the sugar-white private beach and we even provide a wagon to make things easier to carry. Once at the beach you will be provided with 2 chairs and an umbrella (March thru October). There are two pools (1 heated...February to Mid-April) and 2 kiddie pools within walking distance. You never have to cross a street to get to the beach or pools!
Our condo has 2 bedrooms and 2 full baths on the first level. Each bedroom is furnished with a flat-screen TV. The master bedroom includes its own private deck that overlooks the 5-acre fresh water lake with a spectacular view!
The newly renovated second level has a spacious, family room with a queen sofa-sleeper and a complete dining area, with new carpet in 2014. Enjoy watching a movie on the 50” plasma TV with free cable, along with a DVD & VCR. Walkout onto the upper deck and enjoy the beautiful sunsets on the completely furnished deck including a new patio table with umbrella (seats 6) and a new gas grill in 2015. Grab your fishing pole and try and catch a bass or maybe a snapping turtle that are waiting for you in the lake! The fully equipped kitchen was completely renovated in 2013 with ceramic floors and granite counter tops. It includes an updated half bath with ceramic floors and not to forget...a washer and dryer for your convenience.
There are other amenities to enjoy at Southbay, two lighted tennis courts, two large pools (one heated) & two kiddie pools. Then a short walk to the private beach with no streets to cross!
We included 2 chairs & umbrella for your use. We have boogie boards, plenty of sand toys, many toys for the kids to play with and a wagon to put all your things in!

Beautiful lake, clean condo with lots of room and only a 5 minute walk to the beach!
We enjoyed fishing in the lake and the beach was beautiful. The condo was clean and quiet and we loved the two decks overlooking the lake. Simple 5 minute walk to the beach and the attendant there had our umbrella and chairs ready every day. This location and condo would be great for a family as it is very close to the water park, great restaurants and shopping.
Thank you for taking the time to leave a review. I hope to see you back real soon!
Glad you enjoyed your visit. Thank you
The location is fabulous!! The beach is beautiful!
You couldn't ask for a better location! The townhouse has a deck off the living area where you can grill and enjoy meals. The master bedroom also has a covered deck where you can sit and watch the fish, turtles and birds even if it's raining. The beach is a couple block walk but its through the complex parking lot. At the beach, the owners provide 2 chairs and an umbrella which is a great touch. Talk to the beach guy, Bud, and he will have them set up and ready for you everyday! Only visited one of the pools because it was heated and it was very nice. The townhouse itself definitely needs some maintenance. Sliding doors and screens stick or don't close all the way. The master bedroom deck paint is worn and peeling. There were also a few things here and there that could have been fixed. The cleanliness wasn't that great either. I'd give it a 3 out of 5. The king in the master is very comfortable and my daughter said the bed in the other bedroom is great as well. One night we had guests sleep over and the sofa bed was horrible, so I would suggest that not more than 4 adults rent this place. It is definitely not a luxury town home by any means, but if you like a homey feel you'll love it. The kitchen was stocked with pretty much everything you need dining and cooking wise, but you will have to buy your own condiments.There is a Walgreens and grocery store right across the main street so that was great as well. We could have cooked there every day but the amount of restaurants in Destin is amazing. I would suggest McGuire's as a must place to eat. Whatever you do, don't eat for hours before going there because their portions are enormous. Be sure to try the $ 0.18 soup, it's incredible. We rented a pontoon boat for a day and went through the harbor and it was wonderful. We rented from Tailsfin and the boat was like new and the owner was a pleasure to work with. Overall, I loved Destin!! I had never been here before and the beaches are amazing!! My husband and I liked Southbay so much, we are considering renting a place there for the winter when we both retire. I would recommend staying here to a friend, but I would tell them the little things that bothered me and they could decide for themselves. To the owners, thanks for renting us your town home, but I would suggest you get another company to clean. The $150 I was charged as a cleaning fee was too much to be paying whoever you have cleaning. I would try someone else for sure.
Very clean, great location, well resourced, and fantastic view.
Condo provided everything we needed to enjoy our vacation for the week. Easy commute to pool and beach. Very reasonably priced for what us provided. Decor could use some updating but very happy over all.
We stayed in Condo #46 and it was a great place for the months of Jan. and Feb. 2018 to get away from the snow and cold of Maine. Lynda was very accomodating and made sure everything was A1 in the condo. Southbay at the Beach was a great place to be as there were so many friendly snowbirds that we met and look forward to seeing them again next year. The gazebo down by the beach was a great place to meet new people and have gab sessions at the end of the day. I rate the whole stay as excellent!
Clean, comfortable, pet friendly condo in a great location
We looked at quite a few places to stay in Destin. So glad we chose this condo for our stress free week of fun. Lynda was easy to contact and responded quickly.
The condo was very clean. It was fully equipped with everything we needed. Some of our favorite moments were spent eating breakfast on the upper deck overlooking the beautiful lake, or unwinding in the evening at sunset.
It was close to the beach, and shopping. Looking forward to another trip of flip flopping fun in this condo! Thank you Lynda for sharing such a great place to make memories.
Flippin Fun for the big 60!!!
My sister and I spent 6 days at Flip-Floppin Fun in the Sun and we had a wonderful time! Lynda was so helpful, you couldn't ask for a better owner to work with. Let me just say condo was clean and you need to bring nothing but your clothes! The unit also washer and dryer :-) The beach is a short walk away & there are two pools. The lagoon is full of fish (catch & release) and other wildlife. You will truly enjoy the deck off the living area. This unit is pet friendly, but beware of the mirror. The dog (or cat) on the other side will become your pet's nemesis!! :-) Looking to rent a condo in Destin? Look no further than Southbay Unit 46. We will definitely be back! Thank you Lynda!
