The condo is located at a good spot on the beach. Not crowded at all. The condo is only a short walk from the beach.
This condo met our family's needs and was a great choice for our week's stay in Destin. My husband and I traveled with our two grandchildren (ages 10 and 14) and the 2 bedrooms with separate bathrooms was the perfect arrangement for us. I loved the fact that the condo is located on the beach side of the highway ... and although the condo does not have a ocean-front view, it was a short walk to the beach. Being able to park right at the front door of the condo was a definite plus! The accommodations and amenities were more than adequate - and I loved the fact that it was well off the busy highways and traffic-congestion of Destin. The washer and dryer were another big plus ... I was able to wash bathing suits and towels the night before we left so didn't pack a lot of sandy clothes home with us!
Luke, the owner, checked in with us the night before our arrival to answer any questions we might have and to make sure we had all the necessary information we might need - including a name and phone number for on-site management.
I would definitely consider staying here again on a return trip to Destin!
The only negative comment I can make is outside of the owner's control - but involves the private beach area. Chair service rentals line the beach early each morning with chairs and umbrellas and anyone taking their own are asked to put theirs behind the rentals. The rentals are placed very closely together and are set up in such abundance that we weren't able to see through them to keep an eye on our grandkids in the water. This wouldn't have been so bad if all of the service set ups had been rented, but many were empty. By late afternoon, these were taken down if not being used so not a problem later in the day. However, I can't recommend taking children down to the private beach area in the morning.
This condo is perfect for a beach get away! Access to the beach is easy and very close - less than a 3 minute walk with NO roads to cross! Just short walk to the boardwalk then beautiful beach. Very close to the community pool, although we spent all our time at the beach. I have stayed in many vacation homes - this one is hands down the best stocked and most user friendly I have ever stayed in! The kitchen has multiple sets of dishes, cook/bake ware, silverware, glasses, even plastic ware for the little ones. There were extra bath towels, blankets, pillows, pot holders, clever storage spaces and places to easily dry wet swimsuits. There were even night lights already in the unit. All of these things made the stay easy and comfortable. Parking right in front of the unit made move in/grocery runs so much better than a high rise condo/parking garage like most beach units. The owner is very responsive, helpful and quick to answer questions.
