Area Attractions: 

All the excitement of Destin is just minutes away: choice of watersports, golf, amusement parks, and outlet shopping, one glimpse of Destin beaches and you're hooked. It must be the wide, sun-bleached beaches and the famous emerald waters. Not to mention the fabulous fishing, the world's most beautiful beaches, addictive seafood and the full array of activities for kids of all ages and more fun to be found in Destin. 

Here you will find wind surfing, snorkeling, water-skiing and parasailing offered all along the Gulf shores. Nearby attractions include a fascinating aquarium, Naval history museums, a fishing museum, and a zoo featuring Colossus the giant gorilla and rare white Bengal tigers. Of course, you'll want to savor the unique and delicious flavors of the freshest seafood available at any of Destin's more then 100 eateries! Restaurants here range from casual oyster bars to elegant bistros serving culinary delights guaranteed to please your palate.  

Close by is Destin Commons, a beautifully landscaped, pedestrian-friendly area and a great family venue where children will love to play in the interactive water fountains. Also, for the younger guests, a nautically/pirate themed outdoor playground features a 1,750 square foot soft play area with various creatures from the sea, slides, and a treasure chest!  Destin Commons also has a mini train for the kids. Destin Commons features over 75 shops and restaurants, including Godiva Chocolates, AMC Movie Theaters and Bass Pro Shop. 

If you are near Miramar Beach, the snorkelers in your group will love the new artificial reef called Dolphin Reef, deployed in 2017.  Located just 685 feet straight out from the Miramar Regional Public Beach access (by Pompano Joe's), it is becoming a haven for sea life. Each of the 4 snorkeling reefs comprises 40 acres of permitted sea bottom. The Dolphin Reef is at a depth of 12-20 feet. We strongly recommend that snorkelers use a kayak, paddleboard, or other flotation device when visiting the snorkel reefs. Sea conditions can and do change quickly and often. Enjoy! 

So, come enjoy the freshest seafood, go fishing for all types of salt and freshwater fish, explore fun shops and boutiques or simply relax on breathtaking beaches.

Great Proximity to Beach / Perfect for Small Families - Very clean and the host was very communicative about check in process and making sure we had everything we needed. Beach access right across the street. We stayed as a family of 3 and had plenty of room. We plan to stay here again in the future.

Amazing property! - My wife and I spent the week for our third anniversary. We were blown away by how nice/clean the place was, and the overall location was great too! Less than a 5 minute walk to the beach. And straight across from the pool. Also, the bottle of wine and letter left for us was a nice personal touch also! Will definitely be staying here again.

Very clean and updated. Watching local or regular TV was an issue. - Streaming TV svc. Not tech savvy and couldn't find local news or shows

Absolutely amazing, we can’t wait to return and make this an annual family getaway - Loved the location and the layout of the condo. Everything was actually as it stated online. The bed is a tad squeaky, when trying to be quiet getting in and out of it with a toddler who is napping in the room a squeaky bed poses challenges 🙂


Sep 02, 2021

Exceptional - The property was clean the condo was great and the location for the beach was fantastic


Aug 22, 2021

Exceptional - Door lock on the patio sticks it was hard to lock the door. We would have to go out the front to make sure condo was locked.

PROS
- 5 minutes walking to the beach
- Crystal beach is indeed crystal
- swimming pool is clean and just across the street
- bath towels and bed sheets seem new
- mattresses are firm and confortable
- pillows are clean
- kitchen seems to have been recently remodeled
- bathroom also seems to have been remodeled
- convenient washer and dryer
- 2 minutes to Camille’s cafe
- wifi worked perfectly
- kitchen is well stocked with lots of plates and silverware.

CONS (probably owner can’t do much about it…)
- AC can be noisy for a light sleeper who sleeps on the bunk beds in the hallway to the living room

SUGGESTIONS TO OWNER and PROSPECTIVE RENTERS
- The check-in through RealJoy website/portal did not work. You are supposed to enter the reservation number (hard to find it…) and your email. Tried multiple times and ended up calling RealJoy. After waiting 10 minutes on the phone, I got the instructions.
- The padlock on the balcony was not working.
- Both TVs (living and bedroom) were not smart so I could not watch netflix, Hulu, etc. Consider replacing TVs with the smart type or purchasing a firestick.
- Storage area is limited. For those sleeping in the bunk beds, there is no closet. Plenty of space in the bedroom though.
- Could provide some basic cleaning products for renter to clean bathroom, kitchen and to mop the floor. This is not expensive but it would be convenient to have it handy. Some people (like me) are obsessive with cleaning and I could have kept the apartment cleaner if cleaning products had been provided.
- ensure floor is mopped prior to every rental. When we arrived, I had to sweep the floor (pretty dirty) but I did not mop. After walking few steps barefoot, my feet’s soles were black. Bathroom was not clean. Bathtub needs a good clorox cleaning so one can use it
- They have 4 beach chairs but no beach umbrella. During summer, it’s impossible to enjoy beach without umbrellas. Owner can provide one or renter needs to bring it.
- There is no recyling. There is only one dumpster for trash.

SUMMARY: I loved the stay and will most likely book the same unit for years to come! (Just need a better cleaning crew).
I highly recommend it.
