About Barb Kintop

My husband and I have been married for 35 years and have 5 grown children. We absolutely fell in love with Destin and it's beauty when we finally visited Florida a few years ago. We want to share our home with others so they can experience the beauty of God's creation and enjoy the many fun things to do here in Destin.

Why Barb Kintop chose Emerald Coast-Destin Area

This is a very unique piece of property which is on Holiday Isle in Destin. It boasts a more secluded and private setting with a boat slip. The proximity to both the gulf and harbor water features is phenomenal. Both shopping and a stroll on the beach are within walking distance. The unit itself is well built and beautifully maintained.

Great condo!

  • 5 of 5

We loved the week we spent here. The condo was ideally located and we loved having a boat slip. Everything we could ask for was supplied and the condo is very well set up for two couples. We really enjoyed being right next to the pool and it was great to feel like we had the place to ourselves. We only saw other residents here and there. We loved having a balcony to sit outside in the evenings. Having the beach wagon and chairs was a plus! We even used it when we went snorkeling at Navarre Beach. Working with Barb was very easy and she answered all my questions. When we decide to return to Destin, we will certainly come back to this condo. Thank you for making our first brother/sister vacation since we were kids a great success!

Perfect Spring Break Destination

  • 5 of 5

This lived up to the billing and all of the positive reviews left before. Working with the owner was fairly easy. She responded to email inquiries within a day of sending them, and worked with us when there were a couple of minor glitches (including being stuck in Destin due to flooding rivers that week). Not only will we be back in the future, I'm recommending this place to anyone that wants to travel to Destin for their vacation.

Thank you for a memorable week for my entire family!

Definitely recommend!!!

  • 5 of 5

My family & I visited for 1 full week a thoroughly enjoyed the time together! The condo included very comfortable accomodations and the use a boat slip made access to our boat exceptionally easy and convenient! The owner was available for any questions we had at any time, as well as the ease of use for all the accomodations was notable (ex: Where to find keys, how to access the pool and private beach entrance, etc). The facility was clean and well-maintained, the access to have a fully stocked kitchen provided convenience of making home cooked meals (saving $)...with nice neighbors too! We would highly recommend this condo....If we visit Destin in the future, THIS is where we will contact first to stay! P.S. If dining out, be sure to visit McGuire's Irish Pub for lunch/dinner and Another Broken Egg for breakfast!

Destin Vacation

  • 5 of 5

In my husband's words, "Best family vacation ever!" We brought our boat, which measures 35 ft, and the boat slip was very easy to access and so convenient. Crab Island is only a short, scenic boat ride through Destin Harbor. We loved the area of the condo. It has a secluded feel but it is close to everything. The condo itself is very clean and cozy. It has everything you need to feel at home. The pool is steps from the condo and the beach is within walking distance! Our family loved all the different activities available to us!
