We stayed at Capri by the Gulf in the "low" season in April 2013--between spring break prices and summer prices. The property was smaller than most of the other big establishments and due to this, it seemed more "intimate" and not so impersonal. The time we went was a lower price due to being between two more "desirable" seasons. We... More

My family and I stayed here 3 years in a row. We stayed in room 109 the first 2 years. Both years we were very satisfied. This is a quiet, cozy little place right on the beach. You can open your door and see the beach. The 3rd year I wasnt as pleased with our room....not sure of the room... More

walked into the office to check in and the woman behind the counter didn't even look up from the whole chicken she was eating to say hello! Handed us the keys to our room with greasy fingers and actually belched as she pointed out where our room was. The condo was old and dated, the room was filthy, sheets and... More

We have been going to destin for years. We have spent the last 4 vacations at the Capri. We have stayed in a different condo every year and have enjoyed every one. The gate makes you feel so secure, and the location is perfect. It's so peaceful and quiet. You couldn't be closer to the beach unless you were sitting... More

My husband and I grew up on the East coast of Florida and have never vacationed on the Gulf. Having been in Texas now for 18 years, we were long over due for some serious beach time. For our kids, 6,8 & 9, Capri provided for a wonderful experience. The room was perfect, freshly appointed with comfortable sleeping and everything... More

This marks the second time we have stayed in this location. It is right on the beach and central to Destin. If you are on a budget (or making last minute reservations in our case), this is a great place for a couple to stay right on the beach. The room we stayed in (Capri 113) was decorated wonderfully.

Our room was near perfect; the kitchen area was really large and had every conceivable appliance and doohickey; and the beach access was a splendid perk. Can't think of a thing to complain about. Onsite laundry facility was another nice perk. The site didn't allow me to be accurate about when we stayed; it was back in late 2009, but... More

My absolute favorite place to stay in Destin! A true hidden gem! After staying here, I am not interested in any other vacation rentals. The staff are courteous, the prices are reasonable, and you are located on the beach...no crossing traffic to get to that gorgeous emerald green water! The location is far enough away from the high-rises to be... More

Spent 3 nights at Capri by the Gulf..It was absolutely adorable and accommodating. Everything was clean and set up for our arrival. As to the "private beach"....i don't think that applies. There were people walking up and down the shore from different areas and they weren't the Capri's quests. Really liked the chair/umbrella service that was included with our condo... More

My wife and I honeymooned at Capri in June of 2012. This place is an excellent value for a gated complex directly on the beach. Daily beach service in the way of chairs and umbrellas are provided free of charge to the guests which is a wonderful perk. Because the complex is rather small in size the private beach is... More
