This used to be the best with no ad-on's advertised on their web site. It was a straight
deal, room plus tax period. Now they have a damage deposit for $40.00 that you don't get back even if their is no damage, also have to buy travel insurance $70.00 and now something new this year a cleaning deposit starts at $70.00 AND UP. When I asked about all the extras, their answer is because everybody else is doing it. WOW! So what comes next year? A parking fee? Oops I just gave them a new idea. They must have hired someone from the airlines to run the place downhill with nothing but GREED.

We did add a damage waiver 2 years ago so that guests that accidently break a table or a window do not go home with a several hundred dollar bill added to their vacation costs, this fee covers accidental damage up to $1500.00.
We want guests to have the option to have travel insurance in case they have to cancel due to a family illness or emergency. THIS COVERAGE IS OPTIONAL.
New this year, we do charge a cleaning fee. We have looked at pricing of similar Condos in our area and we are still a wonderful value. We do still offer a lot of amenities that are included in the price, like a gated secure property, parking, tennis, swimming pool, hot tub, beach pavilion - plus we have added entertainment in the summer months. We are a quality family vacation value.

We were delighted with our trip to the Jetty this year. We upgraded to a 3 bedroom this year and couldn't have been happier. Unit 318 was absolutely perfect for us. The beach guys were also really awesome this year. We were sad to leave, but we'll be back next year!

I have been coming to the Destin area for over 60 years and this was one of the best ever. The beaches are gorgeous and clean. Love having beach set up each day available. So close to all our favorite restaurants and the harbor. We loved our condo with a great view of the sound and Destin bridge. The pool and hot tub were very nice. Loved the covered parking and easy access to elevators. Our condo was especially quiet which had not been the case when staying at other facilities in the area. We loved everything about Jetty East and plan to return again!

Thank you for the fabulous comments and for coming to see us for over 60 years! We do have beautiful white sand beaches and the emerald gulf waters. Our location is also amazing, being close to the Jetties in a quiet location, but still close to restaurants and activities. All of our condos either have a view of the Harbor or the Gulf of Mexico. Please tell your friends about us and come stay with us again soon!

My family and I have been staying at Jetty East off and on for at least the last 15 years. Now that the kids are gone, with the cheap airfares of Allegiant Airlines non-stop into Eglin AFB, my wife and I try to visit about twice a year. We were there the last weekend in October 2016 and returned over the Easter weekend this year.

We have visited Siesta Key several times; but, as beautiful as that beach is, we always come back to Jetty East.

Something about the people in the Panhandle. Something about the people at Jetty East. Don't know what it is; but, we always feel at home in Destin, particularly at Jetty East.

I do not believe there is a better place to stay in Destin (or Florida) than Jetty East. Family Oriented. Quiet. Beautiful beach. Beautiful water. The best view of the crystal clear emerald waters of the Gulf from a balcony. You can actually see the fish in the water from the balcony.

I worried a little bit on the Thursday afternoon of the Easter Weekend about the Spring Break crowd at the pool; however, when their Moms showed up, all became quiet. And the pool was near empty by 5:00 PM and it was quiet the rest of the weekend.

Anyway, when the opportunity is right, I see my wife and I making Jetty East not just a place to visit but a permanent part of the rest of our life.

Your family will not find a better place to stay in the Destin area.

Room Tip: Odd-numbered rooms have Gulf views. Second to Third Floor, 205-211, seem to be the best.

this was our second time staying here at these condos. huge heated pool on property and also a hot tub by the pool . its right on the gulf of mexico and close to most anything in destin. the condos are older but still nice . wifi is in some of the rooms and also in the pool area.

Room Tip: they have both gulf view and jetty view rooms. gulf views are more expensive so if you want cheaper choose jetty

Thank you for the 4 rating and taking the time to inform others about our Condo property here at Jetty East. We do have a huge beachside pool with a hot tub and we are close to the East Jettys and offer all kinds of water activities. We are on Holiday Isle, so we have a quiet location, but just a short distance from all Destin has to offer. Please come stay with us again soon!
