About the property

Townhome, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 4-6)

Need a family vacation that won't break your wallet? Summer Lake #31 is located in Destin/Sandestin’s most convenient and popular locales. This peaceful and relaxing getaway is unlike other condos along this spectacular stretch of the Emerald Coast because it is very economical and has FRONT DOOR PARKING.

Our condo is beautifully furnished. There are two bedroom suites upstairs with HDTV's and DVD players. Both bedrooms have their own private bathroom. There is a king-size bed in the master bedroom and queen-size bed in the guest bedroom. If needed, two additional people can sleep on the pull out sofa/bed. You’ll enjoy the luxury of having a washer and dryer as well as an iron and ironing board right in the condo. Pets and Smoking are NOT allowed.

The downstairs has an open living area with a convenient half bath, an open kitchen with breakfast bar, a dining room, and a living room with a 50' HDTV and DVD. You will be pleased to find a screened porch. This is where we like to leave a float, a 'noodle', and a rolling cooler for our guests. Feel free to use them while relaxing in the pool or at the beach. The quiet swimming pool and sunbathing area is at your front door. In fact, you can see it from the front patio, the kitchen window and the upstairs bedroom... perfect for keeping an eye on kids and/or a quick, hassle-free dip in the pool!

Stores and local attractions are a breeze. You never have to get in your car if you choose to avoid traffic. Walk behind our community and find all you need for the week: a supermarket, drugstore, fish market, liquor store, video store, two ice cream shops,a family restaurant/sports bar, and a couple fast food spots. In addition, The Silver Sands Designer Outlet Mall (80+ stores) is less than three blocks from your front door! The Destin Commons is located five miles to the west. The Commons has a AMC Theater, a Bass Pro Shop and many other shops for you to enjoy. Baytowne Wharf and Grand Boulevard also has a theater are awesome additions to our coummunity.

If you turn right out of the community, you will find a sidewalk leading straight to the beautiful white beaches (.3 mile) of the Gulf of Mexico! Our friends and family have been sun lovers of this particular spot on the beach for over fifteen years. Many locals know this magnificent beach area as 'The Whale’s Tail.'

The new 'Surf Hut' restaurant is only two blocks away to the right!!

Whether you lay out or play in the surf, you can enjoy the music that plays on the beach during weekend afternoons. This all day spot also has excellent food (including breakfast on the beach), beverages, showers and bathrooms! It is NOT a coincidence that we bought our second 'home' only a half of a mile from this beloved beach paradise! You're sure to love it too!

If you choose to explore down the same strip, about a fourth of a mile down the beach are two more popular gulf view restaurants, Pompano Joe’s and Captain Dave’s Seafood. Located less than eight miles away are Big Kahuna’s Water Park and The Racetrack for kids and the young at heart. Also in town are Destin’s fishing docks and entertaining nightlife. If golf is your thing as it is mine there are 10 courses within 10 minutes of Summer Lake. There is something ideal for everyone!

Book it 'NOW' to join the sun and fun or just relax on your well-deserved vacation. We are committed to making our guest accommodations pleasing and comfortable. Our goal is for you to be our guest again and again!

Property is lovely, clean and convenient.

  • 4 of 5

We rented this townhouse last year and really liked it so we rented again this year. Our stay started off rough with no A/C. We slept with the windows open but it still didn't get below 81 degrees...quite uncomfortable. Bill was quick to get someone out the next morning and all was well from then on.

Nice rental, location, pool, beach access...

  • 4 of 5

The rental was in a great location, a lot of places within walking distance. We did drive to the beach because we had a 4 year old with us (so lots of things to carry) but never had any trouble getting a parking spot beside the surf hut. We had trouble with the access code to the beach and later we realized we were using the wrong gate (go up the ramp, not the stairs). The pool was small but nice and never over crowded. The only trouble we had with the condo is the front door was pretty difficult to open, something is wrong with the door knob. Overall we had a wonderful stay and would recommend this place to others/would consider staying here again!

Owner's Response: As owner feedback is an important part of our business. It has been a very busy rental season and if things like doorknobs need replaced, the only way we find out is from our renters. Thank you, rest assured the door knob has been replaced.

Great place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying at Summer Lake 31! The pictures don't do it justice. The condo is well stocked with everything you need for your stay, and Bill is a pleasure to work with. The beds are extremely comfortable. We all slept great. This was the first time we have stayed at a place that wasn't directly on the beach, but it was no problem at all. There is beach access with a parking lot almost directly across the road. You can also walk to many different places to eat and the grocery store. We enjoyed the screened in back porch and the pool, which is right in front of the condo. If you are looking for a nice quiet place to stay Summer Lake 31 is the perfect place. We can't wait to stay there again.

We loved it!

The property was great and the group really loved the location and proximity to the beach. It was the perfect size for 2 couples, and the sun porch was great.
