About The Owner

Sunset Resort Rentals is one of Destin's most trusted management companies. Our properties are clean and well maintained. We've been providing quality vacation rentals to our guests since 2004, and each guest receives 24/7 emergency service from our staff.

From reservation to departure, we provide dedicated, quality service to you and your family.

Come stay with us once, and you'll see that we work hard to provide you with only the very best.

Why The Owner chose Florida Panhandle

Okaloosa Island is, by far, the best location for family beach vacations. Close to everything that the city of Destin has to offer, but tucked away on it's own little stretch of powder white beach. Most of the island is uninhabited, which lends to more seclusion and privacy. The resorts are limited on height, which lends to less crowded beaches and less congestion. Truely, this is the best location for family beach fun.

What makes this condo unique

Our condo is one floor above the ground, so the view is wonderful, and the location is spectacular. It is also conveniently located near the elevator and the stairs. Some vacationers prefer the stairs over the elevators, but each is right there, so choose your preference. We offer bright colors for vivid memories. We have decorated with up-to-date furniture and appliances to make your vacation more relaxing and fun. We also offer timely service calls should the need arrise, so you won't feel like you've rented from someone who is hundreds of miles away. All of our correspondence is backed with email, and we take care of everything. All you need to do is email or call us for your reservation, and the rest is up to us.

Spring Break 2017

  • 5 of 5

Stayed here a week for our children's Spring Break and really enjoyed the condo. The bed is super comfortable. The weather was unusually cool the week we were there but still found things to do on Okaloosa Island, Destin, and even traveled an hour to Panama City to rent a pontoon boat and explore Shell Island. The only downside to the condo (if there has to be one) is that it is located on the first level and you can't see the beach over the sand dunes. However, you have a front row seat to the swimming pool! Loved the location. Much less crowded than Destin. Wouls stay here again-

Absolutely Amazing!

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at several rental properties throughout the U.S. and I must say that this one was absolutely perfect! The condo was stocked with every amenity that we needed, the location was great, the free umbrella and chairs were a bonus! We will definitely be back!

Great location, close to beach, only partial view

  • 3 of 5

The building is well located close to th main drag. The unit is small with rAthr an odd bathroom set up and no grab bars on the tub shower combo. The view of the water is blocked by a sand dune so you cannot see th beach. Everyone going to or from the beach passes right in front of your balcony. I would stay in the building again, but maybe not on that floor

Nice Condo; Nice View; not so great neighbors

  • 4 of 5

Beautiful condo; great view, well-stocked, clean and well-maintained. Even though it's first floor, the view is nice, you see the top of the dune, a pretty palm tree and the water in the distance. The beach at his condo is also great. It’s back to being very shallow fairly far out in the water which is wonderful if you have kids and the flags are red. It’s a lot of fun to jump waves with the little ones in those conditions. The water was completely clear. It was gorgeous. We felt so lucky to have hit it at this time when the temperatures had quickly cooled down to the mid-80s. The water was actually cold. The sky was wonderfully overcast which saved us many sunburns.

The location though ended up being a bit of a problem. This unit overlooks the pool area table/gazebo and walkway, so it's not as private as one would like. I did find hanging large beach towels over the railing gave a little more privacy. If the people at the table are smoking, that is another problem. But the occasional smoker at these tables was not nearly as bad as the situation we had with the people next door. Our next door neighbors were a large chain-smoking family. We would have loved to have kept the doors open, hang out on the balcony and listen to the waves, but the family next to us had at least one smoker on the balcony at all times. One time when we were in the pool, there were four chain-smokers on their computers and iphones out on the balcony. Since they were so low, the pool area was also inundated with smoke. Within our room, we had to keep the sliding glass doors closed most of the time and couldn’t enjoy sitting out on the balcony at all. It’s the only reason I gave the condo a 4 star. Not sure if there are any condos on the island that ban smoking on balconies, but we’re planning another trip in a few months and I’ll book at one of those places if I have to. We come here a lot and I’ve never had a situation this bad. It seriously unfortunate. I would have never paid on-the-water prices if I had known that I could not enjoy the balcony or the sound of the waves. After the first day, I called the management company to see if there was an empty one they could move us to. I got a message back saying that there weren’t any empty condos in the building (which I expected) and that there wasn’t anything they could do about the neighbors, which I knew as well. I was just hoping that perhaps there was an empty condo anyway. No such luck.
