Perfect Location

  • 5 of 5

Outstanding unit and views. We sat and watched the sunset every day from the deck and large windows. The unit is wonderfully furnished and ideally located to the beach and surrounding locations.

John goes out of his way to be helpful and insures that you are pleased and that everything is fine. Can’t wait to return next year!

Don’t miss the great ice cream shop just around the corner.

Beautiful views!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second year to stay at this condo and I can't say enough good things about it! We have been vacationing in the Destin/30a area for the past 20 years and this condo has been perfect for us. Because it's an end unit, the views of the gulf are great! The owner, John, is great to work with and has taken care of everything you would need during your stay. Grocery, restaurants, and shopping are all close by. Take a walk to Blue Mountain Creamery, so good! You won't be disappointed in this location. Enjoy!

Relaxing vacation

  • 5 of 5

Very nice condo tucked away in a quiet neighborhood, with gorgeous views of the gulf. After staying in Destin, we wanted a quieter place. No crowded beaches, traffic, or long waits for a dinner out. Condo had everything we needed, and what we didn't have we got at a quick trip to Publix/Walmart. Beach chairs set up early every day and lots of beach items to rent if needed. Enjoyed dinner at Goatfeathers and ice cream at Blue Mountain Creamery. John was great to work with, and made renting a breeze. Hope to return again soon!

Great stay

  • 5 of 5

The views of the beach from this condo were outstanding. It was one of the many reasons that we booked this unit. The beach was beautiful, it was quiet, and there are many good restaurants not far from the condo. John was so good to work with. He truly wants everyone who stays here to have a great vacation. I would definitely recommend staying here.

The unit was everything and more than we expected based on the previous reviews. The weather was not cooperative during our stay...3 days of 7 with double red flags meant no time in the waves and frequent heavy rain which forced us off the beach. Typically this would result in three very disappointed kids and parents questioning whether the long drive was worth it, however, the unit provided breathtaking views throughout, making it feel as if you were actually on the beach!!! The books, games, and movies kept kids from becoming bored and the well equipped kitchen made meal prep. a breeze. When the weather cleared, the kids didn't want to leave the condo!!!

It is evident that John and his wife take great pride in the unit. John checked in via phone once we arrived to make sure everything was in order and to welcome us to use the boogie boards, etc. that were located in the unit's hallway closet. Such a gracious host!!!!

We will be coming back next summer and will plan a two week stay...wifi was slow while there so may be an issue for those needing to work from afar...otherwise, it's a perfect excuse to totally unplug!

Great condo with wonderful views!

  • 5 of 5

This was my family's first time to stay in this condo. The view is amazing! John was very easy to work with and checked in on us to make sure everything was perfect. The location is great, just a short walk downstairs and you are on the beach! There's a small cooler, boogie boards, chairs, and floats available in the unit for guests to take down to the beach. We were very happy!!
