Not what we were expecting at all. The beach was lined with dead fish and was full of June grass/algae. We drove to Destin and it was absolutely beautiful and the people were friendly and very helpful.

Just finishing up cleaning and packing before we leave unit 304. The stay was ok, the unit is in desperate need of updating and repair. On the surface the walls have been painted but the bathrooms and kitchen need major updating and cleaning. The flooring is cheap laminate wood that hasn't been installed correctly and has gaps in between the... More

We stayed in unit 105. It was a perfect landing pad for a great week on the beach. My wife and I along with our 3 teenage children enjoyed our stay. The kids fished off the dock most every night. They caught several nice fish and saw tons of other sea life. The unit was sufficient for our needs for... More

If I could rate 0 for this condo I would. I see there may be "some" good reviews on here, but please don't take those in considerations as our family just had the WORST experience in history there. We stayed at the Hermitage condos for 1 week, and you DO NOT get what you paid for. I guess we could... More

Many of the units at Hermitage by the bay are rented and managed by Rick Saunders the president of the HA. During my stay in both units there were no drinking cups and just a couple of plates to eat from. My family and I had to go buy our own plates and cups after paying thousands of dollars to... More

This was by far the worst condo we have ever stayed in. This unit is in desperate need of repair and updating. We were not aware the owner is in foreclosure until the property manager told us when we went to him with our complaints. The unit had a terrible musty/mold smell that triggered several asthma attacks in one of... More

We just spent the last several days at the Hermitage condos. We loved our stay there. It had all the comforts of home: fully equiped kitchen, laundry, living, dining areas, two full baths and a balcony with a wonderful view of the pier. My husband thoroughly enjoyed fishing off the pier and spent every morning and every night till 2-3... More

I went with a group of friends to Fort Walton Beach and we had a wonderful trip. The Hermitage Condos are completely equipped with all the comforts of home and beautifully decorated! Our trip would have been perfect if we had been able to locate someone to issue parking passes before being threatened with tow away fees. While there is... More
