Great location! Comfy + cute decor & helpful amenities.
A very cute condo (love the woodie surf theme!) with all the basics you need for visit. We appreciated the beach items available to use (umbrella, boogie board) and the amenities (such as dish soap, laundry soap, paper towels, tp and beach towels). In condo laundry was so useful (& a key requirement for our rental). WiFi unfortunately did not work well & the small pool could get crowded. Absolutely loved the easy walking access to the beautiful white sand beach and the turqouise ocean. Seeing so many military aircraft flying overhead daily from nearby Eglin USAF base was quite the perk for our 9 year old son. The location of the unit was ideal being in the quieter part of this area of Florida. It was a quick drive to town for restaurants, parks, groceries & beach shops or even to neighboring Destin which has more tourist attractions, but also more traffic & people. Thoroughly enjoyed our visit and hope to return.
We are so glad you enjoyed your stay with us! This unit is great and so close to the beach. This is a very small complex and since they have started heating the pool it gets a little crowded during Spring Break. I love Jet noise!! I have lived here for 50 years and this is the sound of freedom!!! We hope to see you again next year!
Quiet and Comfortable
Unit was clean, comfortable and convenient. Short walk to beach. Short drive to both Fort Walton and Destin. Had issue with the TV and staff was quick to respond. Well equipped unit. Would rent again.
Sunset Cottages 5A is such a quaint unit, perfect for a couple or small family! We are so glad you enjoyed your stay and hope you will return!
Providing for beach service would have made this a more complete visit.
Friendly call service staff.
We hope you enjoyed your stay!We do provide 2 beach chairs and an umbrella for your use during your stay!
It was nice to be so close to the beach. Would like the pool to be warmer. Overall a great place. Beds and supply's provided were amazing
We are so glad you enjoyed your stay! Unfortunately we can not control the weather or water temp, but we are so glad you enjoyed the accommodations!
WORST UNIT IN COMPLEX
IT BEING ON THE GROUND FLOOR IS ALL IT HAD GOING FOR IT. FIRST OF ALL THE THRIFT STORE MATTRESS WAS LIKE SLEEPING ON A PIECE OF PLYWOOD. THE ICE MAKER IN THE FRIDGE DIDNT WORK. THERE WAS NO CLOCK IN THE WHOLE PLACE AND I HAD TO GET REAL CLOSE TO THE LITTLE TV TO TELL WHO WAS PLAYING FOOTBALL. AND APPARENTLY ITS THE ONLY UNIT IN THE COMPLEX THAT DOESNT HAVE BEACH SERVICE. AND THATS AFTER I EVEN CALLED AND ASKED IF IT DID HAVE BEFORE I BOOKED IT AND WAS TOLD THAT IT DID HAVE. SO 2 CHAIRS AND A UMBRELLA ON THE PORCH IS THEIR MEANING OF BEACH SERVICE. SO LUG IT ALL TO THE BEACH YOURSELF THEN I GUESS FOR THE SAME PRICE AS ANY OF THE OTHER UNITS THAT HAS IT ON THE BEACH FOR YOU. SO NO I WASNT HAPPY WITH MY STAY.
We are so sorry you did not enjoy your stay. As you can tell by the other reviews, we have not had any complaints about this unit. It actually is a very popular one. We work very hard to make sure everything is up to quality standards and we have not received any complaints about the TV or the mattress. We also do not advertise the unit has beach service, we do provide 2 quality Tommy Bahama Beach chairs an an umbrella for your use.
Looking forward to staying here again.
My husband and I have stayed in this unit twice. It is very clean and comfortable and really does look exactly like the photos. What we enjoy most is that it feels so private. The beach is close by and you can even walk to the Boardwalk where there are shops, restaurants, and fishing pier. There is plenty of things to see and do in Destin which is just a short drive away.
We bring our kayaks and have enjoyed fishing in the bay and gulf. This time we checked out the dune lakes along 30a on the other side of Destin and found Elmo's an all you can eat crab restaurant wher my husband feasted on the crab while I tried the BBQ Alligator Ribs. They were great! Tasted just like chicken! Really!! We plan to bring our bikes as well next visit and check out the bike trails we saw.
The condo makes a great home base for our expeditions and we are looking forward to staying here again.
We are already planning our next visit and will plan on staying here again.
We are so glad you enjoyed your stay! Cant wait to see you next year!
