We have been coming to Holiday Surf for many years. Not initially intending to make it an annual trip, but that just goes to show how much fun we have here that we have continued coming back year after year. We have made a lot of wonderful family memories here. Love Holiday Surf

Stayed 2nd-9th July. Our condo was newly renovated and it was great but we did have did have a couple of issues... When you enter through the front door you are right in the kitchen area, the breakfast bar was very wide so it made for a very narrow entryway into the bedroom and living area so the corner of...

We spent a few days in this Condo. The Unit # 524 needs to be updated. The furniture is dated and looks dirty. The king bed is very uncomfortable. We went to wal mart and bought a down comforter to put on the bed and then spent money on a blanket as the bedspread had yellowed on the back and... More

Visited in June, 2016. Very dated unit with several minor maintenance issues. One of the outlets didn't work. The fan in the master bath is on the same switch as the light. The fan made such a loud noise that it woke others up when the light was switched on. The shower curtain fell, and the tension on the rod... More

Holiday Isle is a beautiful location for a vacation. We loved the Holiday Surf unit and the location. The onsite management was great in every way. HOWEVER, the VRBO property manager for unit 601 and/or cleaning company seemingly have a scam going on. We are super meticulous housekeepers; our home has been featured in a log home magazine. We were... More

We've been going back to this location periodically for years now and really enjoy the beauty of the emerald coast. It really is an absolutely gorgeous beach here in Destin and a town in which there is so much to do. Especially water activities. Our condo was clean, spacious, and everything we needed for a fun vacation. They have a... More

While it is true that this is an "older" property, and yes they are renovating their lobby this year - so the check in process was a bit clunky. That being said - our unit was AWESOME - we stayed in AR02 - which is in the parking lot - so no view of the beach but the unit was... More

First off, the obvious: the building is older, the property is gated, and it's located on the beach. All fine by me. The first floor/lobby is under renovation meaning you'll need to follow a roped-off walkway through a maze of plastic curtains to get to the elevators or the pool. Not a great first impression, but OK, we visited in... More

Beware when reserving this unit #320--expedia passes you off discreetly to a website called "getaroom.com" which is the worst company ever! their website is confusing and the options are not clear. i mistakenly booked a 2 room condo which turned out to be 2 condos! this was certainly not my first time reserving a vacation online thru tripadvisor but it...
