Loved it! We were there before the busy season, so it was uncrowded. Condo is well-furnished, with beautiful view from balcony. Some of the units in this complex have screened-in balconies, but most, including this one, have had screens removed.

We have visited Destin 5 times in 5 years. We have stayed here 4 of those times. The other trip we rented a house in Miramar because we were with our daughter and her family of 5. Three of our four visits here we rented unit 313. This year we decided to try another unit because unit 313 is near...

Loved the condo and the grounds! All the snowbirds were so sweet and welcoming! Water is clear and more emerald this time of year. Spring and summer the waters are turquoise! Loved the difference in color in the winter.

I was skeptical to rent this location because of other reviews & age of property etc.., but I was pleasantly surprised. We rented through REALJOY vacations and rented room 711. Very nice decor, close to the Elevator which was a plus (especially if the weather is cold). Kitchen had everything we needed. We cooked breakfast every morning then headed to...

Good one week stay on 3rd floor. Average rooms. Good basic living with 150 foot access to the beach. Dolphins swim 30 feet off shore. Lots of military aircraft and private aviation across beach. In March majority of snowbirds going home. Polite staff. Pool always warm. Beautiful white sandy beaches. Secure parking. Feel very safe. Rooms come well furnished. Wifi...

I rented Unit #622. The building looks a lil dated but the room definitely made up the difference. With the beautiful view from the balcony to the fully equipped kitchen. The bed was also nice and very comfortable. Check in was very quick and everyone was very helpful. I would definitely stay again. Just about everything was close by. Nice...

We did some online research before booking at this condo property, using Google Earth, and the property's web site. We knew we wanted to stay gulf front, as so many places in Destin are across Hwy 98 and you have to cross the road to go to the beach for the day. This property met all of our expectations. Each...

This was our 4th trip to Holiday Surf & Racquet Club. Three of those trips were very good but this time we rented 3 two bedroom units and 1 one bedroom unit. We stayed in the one bedroom unit that had a filthy area rug in the sitting area. A TV that was way to small for the room, an...

Called the resort from the road. Got one of the last rooms available. This is a private, gated community. Still uses old fashioned door keys. Room is very nice and clean; overlooks the ocean. I would stay here again. Plenty of activities here for everyone.
