Paddleboards and beach proximity a bonus for this older condo rental

  • 4 of 5

Overall we enjoyed our stay at this condo in Miramar Beach. The bed was comfortable and accomodated two adults and two kids just fine. We were able to use the oven and stove while we were there and there were plenty of dishes.

The proximity to the beach was nice, although the sand had sewage smelling water in a depression in the middle of the beach. It was very strange, I had never seen anything like it before. It wasn't too much of a concern because we just walked over to the west side of Pompano Joe's to enjoy cleaner sand. This may not be an every year thing, it could have just been weather or run-off or something.

As mentioned above, the condo is an older condo but it gets the job done. The paddleboards, and washer/dryer in unit were a huge selling point for us and those didn't disappoint.

The only real critique I have of the place is the towels had some stains on them and I wasn't sure if they'd been washed or not. I was pretty sure they were but it'd be nice if they didn't have the stains.

The owner is very nice and accommodating and it was very easy to communicate with him even at odd hours.

Overall we enjoyed our stay here!

Owner's Response: Sometimes the waves can cause little ponds up on the beach and when the water can't escape back into the gulf, whatever got locked in the pond can form a bit of a smell because of the late summer heat. We apologize you ran across some linens that looked weathered. I can assure you all of your linens were thoroughly washed, but it sounds like some had gotten fairly weathered and were in need of replacement. Our new current cleaning crew recently did a comprehensive inventory and inspection of all linens and they have replaced any linens that weren't perfect. We do get brand new linens at the end of each summer and replace linens as needed throughout the summer. We would like for any guest to contact us immediately if they see anything upon arrival that does not look right. The cleaning crew will come and bring replacements.

Loved the location, reasonable rates, great neighbors! Close to Beach, very comfortable and clean!

  • 5 of 5

We had everything we needed for an enjoyable stay! We stayed the week of the 4th and enjoyed a great show on the beach. We ate at Pompano Joe's, great food and service! We also spent some time at Baytowne in Sandestin, great restaurants, and live entertainment! HarborWalk Village is another great place to visit! The pool was always clean and refreshing and Miramar Beach is the best beach for it's white sand and emerald green water! All in all we had a great stay and would love to come back and stay with you again! Thank you!

Best Stay Ever

  • 5 of 5

This place is absolutely wonderful. Very quite area and safe area with very nice neighbors. This apartment is located very close to the beach. We walked to the beach several times. It is literally a block from the most beautiful beach. It is away from all the hussle and bussle of the tourist part of Destin. There is plenty of wonderful eating places that are there on the scenic beach road and others located off the main road. There is an awesome ice cream place just around the corner called Bruster's that I recommend you checking out. The paddleboards were fun to experience, but take some practice! Bring your toiletry items, food, clothes, and beach toys and this apartment has the rest. We live in Texas and I can honestly say that we will never vacation to another Texas beach after experiencing this location. We were sad to leave, but had to get back to reality. The owners were very nice, helpful, and easy to reach.

Outdated.. No much amentites...smelled bad

  • 3 of 5

The property was comfortable for our trip but you would have to be ready to haul some stuff to the beach though. It may be a block back but getting around the other condos makes it more like two blocks. There's no path straight across. The pool was dirty the whole time we were there and wasn't much of a pool anyways. No TV in bedroom and TV in living room kept losing its connection with Cox because the wires are pressed so hard against the wall. Need new cleaning service; we found a tampon on the floor in the living room. (Still in its wrapper) but still was clearly overlooked. And whoever stayed last must have used curry when cooking their food.. it had a bad smell upon arrival. Overall... it's okay if you have things to do other than the beach. Location is good for things to do on Scenic Gulf Dr.

Owner's Response: We always hope guests ask questions and look through our listing to make sure our affordable condo is right for them. There is a map on VRBO and on our condo's website that shows our exact location in proximity to the beach (it's close). Beachgoers sometimes try to park at our complex when the public beach parking lot gets full. Our listing also mentions one flat screen television. We have it set up in the living room for hanging with family/friends before and after the beach. We do have a picture of the pool on our listing. It has always been enjoyable and clean for our family trips and it was clean just a week earlier when we last visited. Tropical Storm Cindy did hit the Gulf Coast just a day or two prior to this guests arrival, so we do apologize if there were still some leaves in the pool following the storm. Concerning the smell you experienced, we definitely can't control what our guests choose to cook on their vacation - nor do we want to. We would like future guests to know that our condominium does not smell in general. We do apologize a new, still-in-its-wrapper, feminine product was found by you - but overlooked by our cleaning crew. After we received this review making us aware of the situation, we spoke to the cleaning crew immediately who swore they did not see anything of that nature when they were finished cleaning that morning. They did apologize if one fell out of an employee's purse while they were leaving, or if it was left by the last guest and it was simply not seen. We have gotten a new cleaning crew to help ensure nothing like this happens again. Concerning Cox communication, we have never heard of any connection problems from guests prior to these guests - or even this guest before this review. We have also never heard of any problems from guests who followed this guest concerning the connection. Our guests always have our phone number so we can help resolve any issues.

Great Vacation Trip

  • 5 of 5

This was the first time to Destin, FL and we definitely want to come back to stay here. We loved how conviently located everything was. The condo is just a short walk to the beach and there is beach access right next Pampano Joes Resteraunt. We would often set up behind the resteraunt and in the evening they would have an outdoor band that would play that you could hear along with relaxing at the beach. The food is a little pricey but was one of my favorite meals while in Destin. The other thing we loved about this rental was the paddleboards. We had so much fun exploring the ocean with these. We got to see sea turtles and dolphin while paddleboarding. It is a great way to get some exercise while on vacation. Can't say enough good things about the owner of the condo. He was very helpful and responsive to the needs we had.
