Nicely decorated. Beautiful view. Right on the beach. Smelled like mildew. Black mold in the bathroom. Couch had brown stain, had to put a blanket down to sit on it. The whole unit was not cleaned well at all. Carpet in the bedroom needs to be replaced.

Some of the units in this establishment were spot-on beautiful! Since we booked ours through Sea Oats Management and not the condo office, unit 112B is probably not privately owned but owned by the Sea Oats Motel.

Our condo was very clean, it's a bit on the small side, but still comfortable. We enjoyed being right on the beach. We were able to cook all of our meals in the kitchen. The view is beautiful. Our kids loved it.

My room had been remodel but cable wires and the cabel box was just hanging from underneath the tv's on the wall. Mold was in the jets in the tub. The good thing was that the beach chairs were included in the stay.

Check in was a little confusing since we arrived after hours but we got it figured out. Had a little issue with the key code not working in the door but the staff were able to help us out pretty quickly. The view from our unit was absolutely amazing. We stayed in 303A. The unit was clean and well stocked...

We went to Destin for the beach and ocean so it didn't bother us there is a small pool and it faces the street. The building itself is only 3 floors and...

This condo has a great view and easy access to the beach. Traveled with 4 children and I was a little taken back how small the bathroom was and it said for 6 people but I didn't realize how hard that would be with one tiny bathroom. It wasn't as clean as I would like, the bathroom really needed a...
