We were the only tenants on the private beach - had a bunch of friends that we had made around us. Middle of the day, 4th of July weekend. The staff told all those around us to leave, claiming the beach was private and that there had been complaints. Not sure how that could have happened - no one was... More

My family and I chose to stay here because of all the ad's claim "The condo is just right for couples seeking a private and quiet retreat. It is ideal for small families too" and "This west end corner condo is directly on 300 ft. of private beach." (to find these exact phrases in their ad, visit, http://www.top-destin-rentals.com/capri-beach-homes-116-on-the-beach-condo.php. ) There... More

This is a very small property, pretty old-fashioned as far as amenities go, but the location is fabulous and the one story buildings are fantastic.
