Guestbook comments from the owner

WOW! What a great place to stay! Everything was great-the view, to pool, the condo, the little extras, the beach, the chairs and umbrella, etc! Couldn't have asked for better weather, too! Explored The Shrimp Basket, Kenny D's plus a whole lot more! Even saw a few dolphins in the early mornings on a walk on the beach! This week the waves were mild, to very calm so no great surfing for the kids, but lots of ball on the beach and sandcastles! We love it here-would stay again! Thanks to Bob and Diane this place is a great vacation spot for the family.

Our new go-to stay! Wonderful hosts!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely had the BEST 1 year anniversary vacation, all thanks to Mr. Bob and Mrs. Diane! They go above and beyond to make sure your stay is everything you would want. They are so kind, welcoming, and inviting! We greatly enjoyed talking and meeting with them! Also, they work with you at your convenience. So nice! Meeting them to pay our remaining balance was not one bit of a hassle! The condo was absolutely beautiful and spotless! Everything is just as pictured! The beautiful beach is only a few steps away and several restaurants are within walking distance! I have nothing negative to say. We give them two thumbs up and five stars! We can't wait to visit again! Booking with locals is definitely the way to go!!!! Thank you for everything, Mr. Bob and Mrs. Diane! You are wonderful! See you soon!

Winter Get Away

  • 5 of 5

Winter 2016 was my first Snowbird adventure. My trip renting from Diane and Bob, the condo, people I met, things to do tirned out excellent.

The unit I stayed in at the Beach Resort exceeded my expectations. The furnishings and color of the interior were so refreshing each day. I enjoyed opening the drapes each morning to enjoy the sun's reflection off the pool to inside of my condo.

The people I met at the Beach Resort were so friendly. I looked forward to each Friday's Meet and Greets.

I am bicycle rider. I found numerous bike paths to ride my bicycle. Paths along 30A, Scenic Highway, to 9 mile loop near Freeport.

If one likes to work out there were two I checked out. A Gold's Gym on US 98. I worked out at Fit Your Way on 30A. Both locations were great. Went home sick from work out. Folks from Fit Your Way contacted me to see if I required a Doctor

Many good restaurants in the area to eat at. Bonefish became my hang out as group of people adopted me during my stay. Every night I ate there they had saved me a chair with them.

The beaches are wonderful. From the island to the west, along Scenic Highway and 30 A. The dunes were beautiful.

Some places I took visitors to see where Naval Air Museum in Pensacola, Armament Museum at Eglin AFB, New Orleans (4 hour drive), lunch at Apalachicola, as well as many festivals taking place during this time.

I enjoyed time laying by the pool, walking along the beach, watching the sun's rays on the gulf on way to work out, to late evenings watching the sunset on the gulf.

I would recommend (and have to many of my friends) to check out Diane and Bob's condo. Excellent condo and wonderful people to work with. Because of the my first time Snowbird experience was excellent.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much, Paul, for sharing your winter adventures with us and our guests. There are so many things to do here in all seasons, and you really scouted out some wonderful ones. Bob and I are delighted you had such a welcoming community here and made some really nice connections that will, hopefully, remain long time friends. We look forward to seeing you next year! Our very warmest personal regards, Diane and Bob

Absolutely loved this condo and the location. Pictures do not do justice for this room. We were surprised as to how large this room actually was. The balcony view of the pool was awesome too. We had a fantastic week and would absolutely rent this room again! It is comforting to know that the owners live just down the street... If anything is needed, you just give them a call!

Absolutely Delightful for the Whole Family

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time the entire week. The condo has so many little extras! The rooms are so big and the view of the pool is fabulous! We enjoyed Kenny D's a few times, too. For our family of 4, the condo was plenty roomy. The kids loved having their own bathroom adjacent to the bunk room. Bob and Diane were quite helfpful with entertainment suggestions! The beach chairs and umbrella set up was a wonderful part of this trip. We can hardly wait to come back!

Destin, long known as 'The World's Luckiest Fishing Village,' also boasts the nation's largest designer outlet mall, world class day spas and is a renowned golf destination. Close to Destin Harbor, Destin Commons, Baytown Wharf (Sandestin), Grand Boulevard, Indian Bayou, Kelly Plantation, Regatta Bay & Seascape Golf Courses, & Silver Shells Outlet Mall, Sacred Heart Hospital & more.

Many of our guests ask about 'Kid Friendly' restaurants, and here are some of our favorites:

Pompano Joe’s is located about half a mile from Beach Resort and is right on the sand gulf front. We usually order a fresh fish sandwich, but a varied menu.

Harbor Docks is owned by the same family and is also gulf front with a play ground

Crab Shack has a playground. Location is west of Beach Resort, but not far.

Surfside is to the east of Beach Resort and not far from Pompano Joe’s also right on the sand

Harbor Docks is located on the harbor, so the view is of the boats. They have a fishing boat and also sale wholesale to restaurants. We usually go at lunch.

We would also recommend Dewey Destin’s with a great view of Crab Island. A really fun spot sitting on a dock under umbrellas. It is owned by a retired fisherman and his first grade teacher wife. Lovely family and a great spot. You likely will see dolphin. You can go to Calhoun Park just beyond where there is a playground and also a small dock for fishing and a small beach for a little swimming in the bay. The library is near here, too, if you would like to stop by. There is even a story telling time for young children if yours are small.

We have a great Mellow Mushroom pizza here which is located across from Big Kahuna’s Water Park. We get the House Special small and split it.

Angler’s is on Okaloosa Island next to the Gulfarium and is also gulf front with a children’s menu.

We like La Paz for Mexican food and see lots of kids there. It is also owned by the family who has Harbor Docks, so the fish is fresh. We usually get fajitas or fish tacos.

We would also include a picnic at Henderson Park. Pick up lunch at Publix deli and head for the beach at Henderson Park. Covered picnic pavilions and bathrooms with more than a mile of undeveloped beach front. This is actually our favorite spot for kid friendly and adult contemporary dining anywhere in the world!
