Best condo we have stayed in.

  • 5 of 5

We have been coming to 30A for almost 10 years and The Palms 205 is the best condo we have stayed in. The view is spectacular, the pictures don't lie. The description of the condo is correct when it says to check in first before going to the store. Everything we needed happened to be provided...foil, plastic wrap, seasonings, rubber gloves, sponge, scrubber. I could go on and on but I won't. Randy sent a very thourough sheet explaining everything about the condo and the area before we arrived. By the way, the weather cooperated which helped to make everything great!

Back for More...and Not Disappointed!

  • 5 of 5

This is our second year in a row at this condo, and we had just as great of a time as last year. The nice thing is that in the span of a year, the condo has been upgraded with a new living room set, new beds in the 3rd bedroom and a new washer and dryer. The condo continues to be very well stocked with anything you can imagine (olive oil, spices, every cooking utensil you'd need, dish soap, laundry soap, you name it!) Our 2-year-old son also enjoyed the beach. We were glad that the beach was private to give him more room to roam. The owner is very easy to work with, and it makes the experience even more enjoyable. Highly recommend!

Fabulous Condo w/upscale Amenities

  • 5 of 5

Our vacation was excellent thanks to staying at VRBO 60780. Very clean, quiet, perfect for any type of family. The owner takes excellent care of his condo and it shows. Cleanest rental we have ever experienced while using VRBO.

Best on 30-A!

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful condo, very comfortable, equipped with everything you'd need for a week on the beach. Recently remodeled and now even better with a bunk bed in 3rd bedroom. Owner is very accommodating. Beach is fantastic; very quiet, super clean, and easy to get to. Have stayed here for several years and won't go anywhere else. October is the very best month! Highly recommended.

We will be back!

  • 5 of 5

We had such a great vacation - with our 11-month-old son and my parents. There was plenty of room for everyone and the amenities were better than we expected - complete with washer/dryer. We're used to bringing everything with us when we visit a condo, and this one was stocked! The beach and pool were very nice and not too busy during our visit in Sept. There are good restaurants and shopping nearby as well. The owner went out of his way to help us have a great vacation. We'd highly recommend this condo and hope to make it a yearly trip.

Wonderful condo, great location!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for a week with my sister and her family. We absolutely loved it! The condo overlooks the pool and has a great view of the Gulf! Beautiful unit in a great area with less crowd in a more quaint setting than up in Destin but still only a short drive to the outlet malls, Bass Pro etc. Very happy with everything and hope to rebook in the future.
