Didn't care for the condo or the balcony. I didn't like that the balcony was screened in. It was impossible to get pictures from your room of what would have been a great view. I also didn't like that the condos were in a V shape. This kept you from seeing the sunrise and the sunset. The cooling system was... More

The people that work there are super friendly, and super helpful. There are loads of things to do, including tennis, a small gym, sauna, heated pool, and even movies at the front desk that you can borrow. I felt extremely safe, behind big gates, and a security hut at the entrance. You really couldn't be much closer to the beach... More

We went to Destin on the spare of the moment! We arrived very early after driving all night to get there. We were greeted by an incredibly friendly and helpful front desk manager, Alden, who gladly helped us make the decision to stay with them. He accompanied us on a tour of the property where he made us feel so... More

Great view of the beach. It is an older property but it is well maintained. There are two tennis courts right out by the beach and the front desk has racquets that can be borrowed for free. If you're an avid player, not the balls are not in good condition. The staff was not so pleasant. Check-in was a confusing... More

Great family friendly condo building right on the emerald coast in Destin. Love it and have been coming here for years! Very friendly staff and great customer service attitude. Sunrises and sunsets are wonderful here any time of year, but fall brings some of the calmest and most beautiful scenes.

Two couples stayed in unit 219 for three days in September. It is obviously one of the original condo complexes in the area. Check in was painless, with pleasant staff. The beach was great, as well as the pool. Two very well maintained tennis courts were in the center of the complex near the pool. There was also two shuffle... More

My wife and I just returned from Destin and we miss it already. HS&RC is my choice for our next visit without a doubt. Rent thru the club directly for free chair and umbrella or you will have to pay! I witnessed the surprise of other renters finding this out on the beach. We rented unit #220 that was remodeled... More

Ended up here as a last-minute July 4th weekend rental. The rooms were clean and the facility was in overall good functioning condition. The location is excellen! Mother Nature didn't cooperate so, the close proximity to pretty much everything was great. We did get a chance to go snorkeling around the jetty just East of the condo. Great spot. My... More

We just got back and I fell in love with the beach all over again. We stayed in unit 708 and like all the units, it had great views of the beach. Probably the best part about staying at HSRC was the free chair rentals. It was nice not to have to lug the chairs and umbrella down with all... More
