At The Tides @ Tops’l. If you’ve never made your way to Tops’l you don’t know what you’re missing. This place has everything. Beautiful beach. In fact rated best by Southern Living. And if you can’t trust them who can you trust. Incredible views. Close to golf.

The Tides are part of Tops’l Beach & Racquet Resort which is smack dab in the middle of 52 beautifully landscaped acres bordered by the Gulf of Mexico and by Topsail Hill State Preserve. WOW! There’s 600 feet of private, sandy white beaches. There’s a ton of stuff to do here, with the daytime activities and nightlife of neighboring Sandestin and other noted communities to the west, and a nature preserve for quiet and solitude to the east. Tops'l provides the best of both worlds.

At tides you will have many wonderful amenities such as free wireless internet, private, heated tides pool, community grills, basketball, putt-putt, nature trails, and many kids programs. Also, tops'l hill nature preserve is upon a national historic registry spot (next to beach manor on tops'l resort) where usa military tested captured German v2 buzz-bomb rockets there in 1944.

And if that weren’t enough, Silver Sands Outlet Mall, one of the largest in the US, is less than 5 minutes away. Sandestin's popular Baytowne Wharf is just across the street to the west with shops, excellent restaurants and entertainment on the bay. Concerts on Wednesdays and family movies on Thursdays are popular family outings on the lawn at the Wharf. Sandestin's recently developed Grand Boulevard Town Center, nearby to the east, has upscale shopping and many excellent restaurant options. There’s so much to do here you won’t be able to fit it into a week’s vacation. So stay two! That’s what I’d do.

Now let me tell you about the actual unit…

Unit 1109 is a perfectly updated, luxurious 11th floor condo. From the entrance hall, you can see straight through the condo to your private, expansive, 11th floor balcony and the breathtaking gulf of Mexico. In addition to a dining table, your balcony includes a small sitting area for you to enjoy your afternoons. From your balcony, your view will stretch from the gulf all the way back over the lush greenery of the Destin resorts.

The kitchen is fully equipped with breakfast bar. You will also find a washer and dryer for your up-most convenience.

The master bedroom has a luxurious king size bed, flat screen HDTV, DVD player, and the master bathroom has beautiful tile work, a whirlpool tub, and a walk in shower. The second bedroom holds two twin beds, flat screen HDTV, DVD player, and its own private access to the second bathroom.


You must be at least 25 years old to rent with us.

Perfect place for our family!

  • 5 of 5

Everything was easy and better than expected, from check-in, to the condo and check-out. We had no issues whatsoever and enjoyed our week so close to the beach! The views are amazing and it was just a great place for our family vacation! We would rent this unit again in a heartbeat!

I really hate to give this review but I will

  • 5 of 5

OK, let me explain. If this condo keeps getting such good reviews, it might not be available the next time we want to rent it.

First off, I have to say, my teenagers gasped when we drove past the guard shack and started driving down the path to the Tides. The said, "we're staying here?" Mind you, we normally stay in very nice comfortable hotels, but the grounds at Tops'l are very tropical and beautiful.

You know that feeling when you first open the door to a hotel room or condo? You are so very hopeful it's all it was marketed to be. Man, Unit #1109 did not disappoint. The amazing view of the ocean took our breath away. You can see it from the moment you walk in and all the way back to the sliding glass doors.

We loved everything about our visit. My wife remarked at the attention to detail in the condo as far as color coordination and design. Much love and care has gone into making this unit a lovely place to stay. Everything was very clean and well managed. We felt like royalty.

We loved it so much, we might have to buy the unit next door and become neighbors. I truly want to go back every year and rent this unit.

If you don't know how amazing Destin beaches are, let me say that Miramar tops them all. And the best thing about Tops'l? You don't have to fight for a parking spot at the beach no matter what time you want to go. Your building is sitting on the sand. Just go out your door, down the steps and into the lovely emerald waters of Destin beach.

We truly enjoyed our week stay and can't wait to go back.

We enjoyed the stay very much. The condo was very nice and has a great patio and view.

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed the condo very much. We spent a lot of time on the patio because of the view. If there was any wishes, it would have to be reduction of the large numbers of speed humps followed almost immediately by stop signs to get back to Tops'l The Tides. Otherwise, we had a great time!

Such a pleasant experience staying here! Very beachy decor, and great master suite with large shower and comfy king bed. The views are amazing and the location is convenient to everything! The property is quiet and well maintained! Fred is super great to work with and very reliable in communicating, as needed. We loved this property and hope to return one day soon!

Beautiful view of the ocean in a lovely condo away from the hustle and bustle of Destin.

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our week at TOPS'L Resort in this lovely condo. The decor is perfect and the jacuzzi tub was a lifesaver in the unexpected cold temps we experienced. Highly recommended!

my wife and I are retired and stayed in this condo for almost 2 months this winter. We loved this unit, the owner, the decoration, and facilities. Will be coming back next year for sure. Thanks Fred.
