Guestbook comments from the owner

Please know I enjoyed my 4 month+stay. Your condo is well located in the city and within the building, and the remodel job is top notch! As time goes by, I will keep it in mind for next year.

Great place and location!!!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I had a good time. Awesome view, cool to see military jets and helicopters fly over through out the day. Make sure you go check out The Donut Hole for breakfast and peanut butter pie.

Wonderful Getaway!!!

  • 5 of 5

I took my mother on a little getaway and could not have been more pleased. The condo was absolutely PERFECT with a view to match. I have stayed at several places in Destin, but was truly impressed with all of the amenities Sundestin had to offer (ie. pool/ hot tub overlooking the beach, free dvd machine, tiki bar and a splash pad for the kids). We were conveniently located to many great restaurants and shopping so it was easy to navigate.

The only hiccup to the whole experience was dealing with Resort Quest. They made it very confusing with several contradictory emails (from different email addresses) on whether we were booked and the status of our balance. One email would state that we were confirmed with a "paid in full" balance, followed by another email with a vague confirmation and an existing balance....very frustrating!!!

Fortunately, the owner of the condo was FABULOUS and offset any frustration. He was MORE than accommodating and was very helpful through the entire process. He gave us reccommendations for restaurants and times to watch for the dolphins off of the balcony. He even emailed us during our stay to check in and make sure everything was up to par.

I highly reccommend this condo to anyone wanting a relaxing and wonderful beach experience. My family and I will DEFINITELY be back!!!!!

Just Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

My daughter and I had a wonderful time in Destin. This trip was perfect, just perfect! It was her first time to the beach so I wanted to stay somewhere that was beachfront and easy access, and the Sun Destin was great. The condo is updated and very comfortable. The view was wonderful; we could see the dolphins and sting rays from our balcony! We can't wait to book our trip for next year!

We stayed at this condo at the beginning of April and absolutely LOVED it! It was beautiful, comfortable and every morning I could wake up and drink my coffee while I looked out over the ocean. Life doesn't get much better than that! Everyone was friendly and the amenities were great. There was plenty to do both for me, my husband and my kids. I wish we could live there all year!

Perfect Relaxing Vacation

  • 5 of 5

The condo was clean, comfortable, and perfect for my little family. Mr. Jim, the owner, was very nice and helpful in getting our reservations set up and offering tips for our vacation. We had a great view of the beach from the patio. The check in and check out was failry simple, though the front desk seemed a little lost in how to finalize room charges for the beach chair rentals. Other than that very minor detail, everything was great! Because it was only mid-March, the water was still very cool, but the weather was nice, and we had a very relaxing stay. We will definitely look at staying here again for future trips to Destin! Thank you Mr. Jim for opening up your condo to others and allowing us to stay!

Summer 2012

  • 3 of 5

The condo that we stayed in was great. The issue was the resort itself. The pool was extremely small for the size of the resort. Checkout was a nightmare, the cleaning crew began knocking on my door at 9:15. Checkout was not until 10:00. I felt rushed to get out of the room to then wait for 45 minutes to get on the elevator. My husband had to begin carrying our luggage down 14 flights of stairs so that we could get to the first floor to checkout. Checkout is at 10:00 for everyone which was a disaster. My recommendation would be to have checkout between 10:00 and 12:00 in order for the process to go smoothly. Due to the utter chaos upon checking out we will not use this resort again.

Owner's Response: We are so glad that you were pleased with our condo. We take a great deal of pride in offering the best for our guests while they enjoy the beautiful beach at Sundestin. In fact, we will be enhancing some of our decor this fall, all in an effort to make our visitor s stay as relaxing and comfortable as possible. That is why we are so disappointed that the checkout process did not meet your expectations. We will bring your comments to Resort Quest management s attention in an effort to bring about some positive change. Our guest s concerns are of utmost importance to us and we will do everything we can to try to resolve this for the future.
