We went to Destin the first part of August 2007 before school started. We rented from an individual as that is sometimes much cheaper. The condo itself was nice on the ground floor. These condos were built in the 1980's but I think most of them have been remodeled or updated. We had everything we needed in the condo and the bedrooms were very roomy. There was a decent sized pool and a play ground. The condo we stayed in unfortunately was at the very back of the resort which was bad in a way because we usually stay on the beach or only a few steps from the beach and we had to walk what I'm guess was several blocks carrying all our stuff -with two young kids.(There are units that are much closer.) One thing I would note is that the ceilings and walls seem very thin - luckily the people above us did not show up until the night before we were leaving. When they fushed the toilet you thought that a wave was about to come through the wall. On a positive note we LOVED being close to Pompano Joes which has become our favorite place to eat each year. All in all I would stay there again but would choose a top floor condo closer to the beach.
