Emerald Coast-Destin Area Condo Rental Photos and Description

Sleeps 4, Complete with two Paddleboards!

This 1 bedroom condominium just a short block back from the beach is your answer to a hassle free stay at the beach. You can truly enjoy all of the amenities you need without the noise and complexities of your average highrise condominium. This unit sleeps 4 guests with one bedroom equipped with a queen size bed and and a sleeper sofa in the main room. The unit has a washer/dryer, Samsung refrigerator/freezer, flat screen TV, and DVD player. A brand new A/C system was also recently installed to keep you comfortable when not at the beach! The unit has 2 paddleboards, 2 paddles, and 2 ankle leashes for anytime fun on the Gulf. Both paddleboards are 10'6 Riviera soft-tops. Parking is available just steps from the stairway leading to this 2nd floor unit. A pool and barbecue pit are also available on the premises. We also handle all payments through Paypal. This means you avoid the new "service fee" that is charged for paying through VRBO. Hope to hear from you soon!

Great for a quiet getaway!

Great condo for a couple! Small, but clean and convenient. Only a short walk to the beach and restaurants. Owner was very responsive. Will definitely rent again!

Great little place, great price

  • 5 of 5

We went as a family of 4, and it worked out great. Place is clean. Owner is very responsive. Love the swimming pool, and we had the pool to ourselves the entire time we were there. No one else used it. The neighbors are nice. We were greeted by an affectionate neighbor cat named Butter Bean everyday. Only 5 minutes walk to the beach and the money you save to be right on the beach will cover your food cost. It is expensive to eat by seaside there. CVS and Winn-Dixie are very close to the house with just a few minutes of driving. And Miramar beach is just as pretty as Destin, but it is not crowded at all so you get to enjoy it without too many people around you.

The kitchen has all you need to do some light cooking.

The Paddleboard Retreat is perfect for couples, up to family of 4.

Tips:

1 - Pompano Joe serves lunch until 3:45. Having late lunch there, and make sandwiches or cook something inexpensive at the house for dinner will save you a lot of money.

2 - Highly recommend Dewey's. Best seafood restaurant in Destin, IMO. Their stuffed shrimp is legendary (large Gulf shrimps stuffed with real crab meat, wrapped in bacon, and deep fried) Pompano Joe is pretty awesome too.

3 - We took the Boogies 6 PM boat tour and we saw about 8-10 dolphins. It was awesome. Highly recommend it, and for that time frame.

4 - Coffee at Bad Ass Coffee is truly bad ass, and it is walking distance.

5 - Take 25 minutes drive to Okaloosa Island (East of 98) and watch the fireworks by Crab Trap Boardwalk every Wednesday night. We were surprised that there were not many people there. BTW, love the food at Crab Trap. Also, Floyd's next door from Crab Trap has all you can eat popcorn shrimp during happy hour.

6 - If you don't mind the drive, we always drive to Pensacola to Joe Patti's every time we are down by the Gulf. We buy seafood there, and to have sushi right there in the seafood market..it does not get any fresher.

Awesome place!

  • 5 of 5

This little condo was just perfect! It was off the main road but still just a short walk to the beach and Pompano Joes. It's not fancy, but nice and clean and had everything we needed including wi-fi. The paddleboards looked fun, but weighed more than me so I didn't use them, but I wanted to! The neighbor "Len" was a cool guy that made for good local advice and overall great conversations! We will be back for sure! Can you rent this long term? We are moving here in Sept!

Great Place 👌

  • 5 of 5

I would definitely recommend staying here. We had a great time. It isn't lavish, but you have everything you need and lavish isn't a necessity when you're at the beach. We couldn't complain about anything. There is a sleeper sofa if anyone additional wants to crash, two paddle boards to take at your leisure if the weather permits, an easy walk to the beach and a few restaurants, and don't forget the awesome neighbor in 1B that makes for great porch sit conversation. We'll definitely go back.

Didn't Want to Leave!

  • 5 of 5

I highly recommended staying at the Paddleboard Retreat. My boyfriend and I visited earlier this month. We had a wonderful experience and will definitely return in the future. The accommodations were very comfortable, had everything we needed, and included cable and wifi which was an added bonus. The location is perfect and just a few minutes walk from a beautiful white sand beach. Even though we visited in Feb. we were fortunate enough to have gorgeous weather and were able to take the complimentary paddle boards out on the water and spend days on the beach. Thank you for a memorable vacation & hope to be back soon!!

Great Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

The paddleboard retreat was great! The place is perfect for a fun beach escape. It was clean, comfortable, had everything we needed including cable and internet (which helped me get some work done). The location is amazing...just a short walk from one of Destin's prettiest beaches. The nearby restaurant - Pampano Joe's - is really fun and has a great happy hour. One of the best things about the place is the inclusion of the paddleboards. There were rentals nearby that charged a pretty penny to rent the boards for a hour or two. The place has two available for use and they are included in the rental unit price. My boyfriend and I had a blast paddling in the crystal clear water! I'll be back for sure!
