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...

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...

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...

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...

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...

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...

My husband I walked into the Capri office on a whim and were greeted by two staff members for Harmony Beach Vacations. They were polite, charming, and very funny, and extremely knowledgeable about the area. We already had reservations with another condo, but decided to cancel and stay here. Our room was adorable and had a very comfortable bed. The...

My husband and I stayed in a one bedroom condo at the Capri By the Gulf. It looks to be one of the oldest properties along Scenic 98. It has a security gate and a laundry but no swimming pool. Only a few of the units have a balcony - ours did not, so we went out to a small...

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. It is way better than waiting on elevators to go up to the rooms or down to the beach. Clean property, nice people at the front desk, and fantastic beach.
