Perfect Condo

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this unit at the Pelican Beach resort where we had spent several vacations in the past. This unit by far was our favorite. The view from the 20th floor was spectacular. You were able to see the beach and the gulf and also the city lights at night. We took my daughter for her high school graduation trip along with some friends. The friends who slept on the fold out couch said it was more comfortable than their own bed. There were 6 of us and we had plenty of room. The unit was very clean and up-to-date. The owner was wonderful to work with. We will definitely try to rent this condo the next time we vacation in Destin. I would highly recommend it.

Fabulous 20th Floor Flat!

  • 5 of 5

My Family of three stayed 3 days 2 nights along with our good friends also a family of three, both parties with two adults and toddlers babies. The condo was amazing everything we could ask for at a great price. The kitchen was well stocked if you wanted to cook dinner. The views were breath taking. I was a little afraid of being on the 20th floor, however, once you go up it's not bad at all. The balcony was huge, great aerial views, we sat out there every night, it was very peaceful. The location is great as well there is shopping like 5 miles away and only like 10-12 miles to the outlets and great food. Unfortunately, we experience a lot of rain this weekend, however, Cheryl (owner) emailed me after seeing the weather forecast for the weekend, and offered to allow me to move my dates. She did this out the kindness of her heart! I declined her offered because my family was in need of a relaxing weekend, and we didn't want to push the dates back, but that gesture along would make me do business with her again. She also would reply to emails extremely fast. Please know that you will not be disappointed with this unit, or the professionalism of the owner!

Beautiful 20th floor coastline view!

  • 5 of 5

Our family stayed 3 nights and had a wonderful time! The 20th floor I thought was going to be too high for me, but it turned out to be just fine. The view from the balcony is beautiful daytime or night. The kitchen was stocked with everything imaginable and everything you would need to cook a meal while being away from home. Cheryl was a pleasure to do business with, and very easy to contact if you had questions. Checking in was easy, but just be sure to get a cart that has hooks on it so you can hang bags and it will make it easier. The elevators were fast and did not take us that long to get to the 20th floor except on the busiest times when people are checking in or coming in from the swimming pool. When the elevators were crowded, we just used the garage elevators because there's hardly anyone ever on them and you can go up and down quickly without stopping on other floors. Would definitely recommend unit 2013 on the 20th floor!

CELEBRATING IN STYLE!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I celebrated our 30th wedding anniversary while enjoying this wonderful condo, amazing beach, and daily dolphin sightings from our balcony! The view was fantastic, the 20th floor was very quiet, and the elevators were always quick to take us down to our next adventure or get us quickly "home" after a long day of fishing and fun.

The balcony had a glider rocker that was perfect to enjoy the beauty of Destin. Both bedrooms were beautifully decorated, comfortable and had their own TV's. The bathrooms were well stocked with towels, clothes hooks, soaps, shampoo, lotion and hairdryers. (We were grateful for the stackable washer and dryer in the guest bath to help us keep our fishing clothes and rags smelling fresh.) The couch and love seat were VERY comfortable and perfect for viewing the TV and enjoying the library of movies (or taking a quick nap). Since this was a special celebration/vacation, I did not cook but the kitchen was FULLY stocked.

Our favorite restaurants were McGuire's for their daily lunch specials, The Back Porch, and AJ's who cooked our fresh catch of Trigger fish and served it family style with fries, slaw and hush puppies. We enjoyed fishing with the Destin Princess twice and the American Spirit once because the captain of Sweet Jody was away on a fishing conference. We also had a wonderful time at the Gulfarium and the Gulf Breeze Zoo.

Cheryl (the owner) was wonderful to work with and always quick to get back to me when I had questions or needs. The worst part of our stay was closing the door behind us on the last day and heading back to reality. I look forward to enjoying Destin again in the future and staying in 2013! This was a wonderful "home" to celebrate 30 wonderful years with my best friend!!!

A Little Step into Paradise

  • 5 of 5

Over the Mother's Day weekend, I had the pleasure of finding this beautiful gem available. As a surprise to my sister and nephews, I booked this condo and lost a bit of my heart! What an incredible place to dwell, if even for just 1 night. All of the pictures are just as posted, all of the reviews are spot on, and Cheryl (the owner) was incredibly responsive. The location is geared for being outdoors or in-doors, or a little bit of both. With the beautiful ocean mere steps away, the condo offered pure bliss. Everything we needed was available... Dishes, utensils, kitchen gadgets, soap, towels, and most important...serenity. We truly had a blast... And did I mention the ocean view? Breathtaking!!! I awoke to a beautiful sight of the ocean beckoning. My nephews loved their room with comfy double beds, and my sister said that the pull out sofa bed was divine. The bed in the Mastersuite provided a restful slumber...absolutely no complaints on my end. I would rent this condo again in a heartbeat and without any hesitation. In fact... Working on a return trip with my husband 😀.

Prettiest condo with the most amazing kitchen!

  • 5 of 5

Our family stayed in this wonderful condo over Thanksgiving week. It was so beautiful! The colors were soothing and not the Florida beach borderline tacky that you sometimes see. It was was peaceful and relaxing and very modern. Here's what you want to know: the couch and loveseat are plush and comfortable. Enjoy them as you watch the very large flatscreen TV. When my hubby wasn't on the beach, he was in front of that TV watching football. The master bed is COMFY! Hubby sleeps bad at home but he LOVED this bed. Best week of sleep he's had all year (which means it was the best week of sleep I'VE had all year.) Cooks...this one's for you. The kitchen is a rock-star on it's own. Not only has it been gorgeously updated, you wouldn't believe the selection of pans, utensils, glassware...best I've seen in all the many condos I've stayed at. For the record, this stuff wasn't dollar store stuff either. I enjoyed my week of luxurious living! Posh, plush and perfect. That's how I'd label this unit. Stay away from it on Thanksgiving! I want to book it myself!! Just kidding. That doesn't sound very charitable, does it? I'd HIGHLY RECOMMEND this unit. The owner was thorough, detailed (I loved finding notes she'd left all over the unit. Helpful to a person who loves detailed instructions!) and hospitable. Be sure to make the drive to Okaloosa Island and go to Props Brewery!
