My children and I stayed at a second floor condo. The condo had everything we needed but I would choose a higher floor next time. The unit was also showing some "wear and tear" but nothing too bad. Staff was friendly and helpful. If you want a front row beach chair I recommend waking early, going for a walk on... More

This place is pretty nice ,but I think they should do away with the tennis courts and put in a bigger pool or pools also the beach service guys put the beach umbrella s so close you have to duck under other people's umbrellas to get to the water which is pretty awkward.

We love this place! Destin Florida is amazing! Holiday surf and Raquet was great! We had a very nice condo, right on the beach, had a small pool, you get chairs and an umbrella everyday during the summer months. Sand is clean, beach is amazing and water is clean and warm! The condos are very clean and spacious. Will be... More

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

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
