Destin has been voted 'Best Beach in America' by the readers of USA Today, and has been rated as 'Best Family Destination' for over 10 years in a row by the readers Southern Living Magazine. Destin Towers is a gated access low density condo resort, owns its gulf-front beach and was also named as a 'Top Pick' Destin Condominium resort by Southern Living Magazine. With only 45 units (less than half available as rentals) building common areas are uncrowded and more importantly, the Destin Towers private beach is much less congested than larger mega hotel-resorts, allowing for better access to premium beach spots. This unit also enjoys one assigned covered parking spot, closest to the building, with additional visitor spots available so you avoid the “beach parking competition.” This, along with 2 high speed elevators, will allow you to maximize family time and make full use of beach time.

Three Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Excellent property, great vacation. Great Views and easy access to the beach. Great central location close to plenty of things to do. We had 3 family's of 4 people each for a full week and there was more than enough room for everyone. The kitchen is top shelf, well equipped, and the grilling area was very nice as well. Simple, easy, and active during the day, quiet at night. This place was more than we could have asked for. Would highly recommend. And, special thanks to Shannon and Jilenna at Forever Vacation Rentals, they were very helpful, communicated everything very well, and made the whole process very easy, they were great to deal with.

Excellent Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

The Modern Serenity Condo was absolutely amazing! The master bedroom and bathroom were over the top great with an incredible private balcony that we used extensively. The living room was spacious and well decorated. The kitchen and all the amenities were fabulous. The view from the condo was spectacular. The 3 additional bedrooms and separate bathrooms were great. The beach access was wonderful. What a gorgeous coastline with beautiful white sand and aquamarine ocean. I would recommend upon arrival reserve chairs-- you will greatly enjoy them during your stay. We brought our adult children and grandchildren-- everyone had a fantastic time and want to return next year!

Awesome condo

  • 5 of 5

This is a great condo and can fit and feed lots of people. The kitchen is extremely stocked with everything you need which is quite unusual. In the past, I have had to buy kitchen supplies, cups, flatware, etc. but not this place. There is enough kitchen utensils, plates, etc. to feed an army. The living area is big enough and the bedrooms are away from each other which gives you privacy and quietness when you need it. One bedroom sleeps up to 8 people! More condos should have a bunk room like this place. A great room for all the kids. The other three bedrooms have king size beds with big screen TVs, however, the TVs were rarely used. The master room is huge with a private balcony. This unit is one of two on the 16th floor, so there is even more privacy. If you choose Destin, you cannot go wrong with this condo. I will definitely try to rent it again.

Beautiful! Beautiful! Beautiful!

  • 5 of 5

This vacation property is wonderful. It has been recently redone and is lovely. We traveled with 2 families (one that includes 4 adult members and one that has 2 adults and 2 children). The property worked perfectly for us. Lots of space for everyone to do their own thing. The kitchen was well stocked for cooking group meals. Bedrooms and bathroom arrangements were comfortable for all. Master bed/bath is amazing. The view from the balconies overlooking the beach was incredible morning, noon and night. The location is on a stretch of beautiful beach that has chair/umbrella rental that can be set up ahead of time if you choose.

Only things (which DO NOT take away from this great property in the least and may not be something the owners are aware of) is that there were no grilling tools that we could find to use with the community grill located on the ground level & the brand new blender leaked causing it to be unusable. Also, the initial supply of trash bags/toilet paper was extremely limited upon arrival and we did not think to purchase these on our first trip to the store so... plan ahead :). Great property! I would highly recommend it and hope to stay here again in the future.
