Who would have thought this gem was tucked away amidst Destin! We actually stumbled upon the website after having to cancel a cruise two weeks before. It did not disappoint--everything people had said was exactly as we found it. After a long day of travel we were greeted by extremely friendly staff members who were more than happy to help answer our questions. When we opened our door we were greeted by a softly lit room with relaxing music playing. On the bed was a tray with wine glasses, a bottle of wine, a single rose in a vase, grapes and chocolates. The beatiful views of the gulf were breathtaking! The morning breakfasts were so relaxing and delicious. Again the staff attend to your every need. The boxed lunches are great especially when spending the day on the beach. My husband went to the front desk to get us reservations for dinner on our last night. He said they only had 6 pm. I said that was fine. When we spoke with the hostess she said our table was not ready yet and that our server, Dustin would like to take us on a little "tour"! Not sure what I was in for, he walked us out on the deck and then turned and gestured toward the beach and said "your table awaits"! There on the beach was a lone table spectacularly set with lit tiki torches surrounding it. A hand carved path sprinkled with rose petals led our path to our private dining table. Our chairs were facing an unbelievable sunset and a few hours later were turned to view the gorgeous full moon! Dolphins frolicked along the coast line. Dustin was the perfect server. He was so kind and thoughtful. His professionalism and the pride he has in his work was refreshing. The food we were graced with was fantastic!! Every course was culinary genius!! We have never experienced anything like this "Toes in the Sand" extravaganza--an unimaginable birthday surprise! Thank you all for your great service and a vacation we will cherish for many years to come!
