Our second stay.

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed a wonderful vacation. This first floor efficiency is right in front of a large pool. Blue water and a white sandy beach were a one minute walk away. Having a full kitchen meant we seldom had to leave the complex. This is a quiet and well maintained facility. Jan is wonderful to work with. This is a great fit for families on a tight budget. We hope to return. Thank you, Jan.

Kids Loved It

  • 5 of 5

Closest room to a big beautiful pool and a short walk to the beach. We didn't use the car at all for 3 days. Even had a video library which made evenings very entertaining. Jan is great to work with. Hope we can visit again. Remember this is an efficiency unit. Be reasonable with your expectations.

Great Vacation

  • 4 of 5

WONDERFUL spot for a vacation. You can spend your days lazing on the beach or in the pool, yet you are also close to Destin or other larger attractions. Anglers at the Pier had wonderful food. We went to Destin to Harbor Walk one day for dolphin and fireworks cruises on the SeaBlaster. The condo was across from tennis courts and basketball that my two young adult children appreciated. Jan was very friendly and easy to work with in making the arrangements. Will definitely consider going back again!
