About Bryan and Christen Drew

We live in Southern Illinois and our family has now grown to include four children. We have 2 girls ages 11 and 7 and a boy 3 years and our baby girl 2 years old.

Bryan and Christen Drew purchased this condo in 2012

Why Bryan and Christen Drew chose Emerald Coast-Destin Area

Our family vacationed last year at Surfside and loved the condo units and the resort was exactly what we wanted. Condo unit 410 was huge for a condo and we needed the extra bedrooms with our ever growing family. This resort is perfect for a family of any size or ages as well as those adults who want to get away. The resort has everything you need and really makes you feel like you are at a home away from home.

What makes this condo unique

The size and openness of the condo sold us right away. With a full kitchen, washer/dryer, two bedrooms and two bathrooms it had all the room we needed while still feeling comfortable. Walking out of the resort and onto the beach through a private entrance is unique in the Destin Area and a big benefit for couples or families with children.

Loved this Condo

  • 4 of 5

We just recently stayed here at this condo, and it was great! My family of four loved the facility and the beach!! It is definitely something that we will continue to do every summer.

The only issues that we had were not at all affiliated with the Drew's! Bryan was so helpful to us, and we enjoyed the comfort of his condo. However, the staff at the front desk was rude and disrespectful to not only us, but other renters as well. The housekeepers did not have the room cleaned, and when Bryan demanded that the front desk give us the keys, we waited until 7pm to have the condo cleaned, which never happened. My husband and I cleaned the entire condo ourselves, from washing sheets and towels, toilets, bathrooms, kitchen, floors (which were still covered in sand), etc. with supplies that we bought ourselves. We stayed in the condo all night hoping that someone would come to clean and they never did. Again, this issue was not Bryan's fault, as he does not live close and was unaware that there was any issues.

But, after the initial first day, the rest of the week was amazing. We had front row chairs everyday and enjoyed all the luxuries of home in the condo. The beaches were amazing, and we will continue to re-stay here if possible!

Great condo for big family

  • 5 of 5

We just got back from our stay and we loved it! The condo was very roomy. Lots of space for us and our 4 kids. We enjoyed breakfast on the balcony, the pictures of the ocean views don't do it justice. The beach was wonderful. Coming in September definitely helped with the crowds, we were able to sit right up on the shore. Loved the full kitchen, everything we needed was provided. We also recommend eating at The Surf Hut, just down the road. Try their stuffed shrimp. So good! We will be staying again when we come back to Destin!

Vacationing from IL

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time! Condo was very spacious, beautiful view of the beach, within walking distance of a couple beachside restaurants. Family friendly atmosphere! Scenic 98 offers great opportunities to run, walk or cycle. Condo restaurant offers beach side food and beverage service. Well kept beach. Would definitely stay again!

Great floor plan with lots of closet space and a big master bath. My first condo that isn't right on the beach but is just a short walk across the busy street... Only negative is that no space on the beach- front row chairs/ umbrellas are reserved for owners only so is hard to keep an eye on small children or enjoy the beach being behind everyone else... If you want a front row seat on the beach, this condo isn't for you.

Owner's Response: We are sorry that you were unable to have a space on the front row on the beach. Our unit does provide for free two chairs and an umbrella beach service each day of your stay. Upon arrival, you only have to speak to the beach attendants and they will set you up every day of your stay. As an owner, we provide this to our renters as a free service to enjoy their stay.

Escape By The Sea

  • 5 of 5

The location was extraordinary and the condo was absolutely spectacular. The view of the ocean from the master bedroom, kitchen and living room area was senational. The location was convenient to shopping and dining out or if you preferred eating in, which we enjoyed more so, due to the full kitchen and again the view of the ocean. We also enjoyed the well equipped work out facility. It was indeed a very special place to be.
