family friendly beachfront condo??

I am looking in the Destin area. Can anyone please advise the benefits of Mid-Destin/Holiday Isle, versus Miramar area. I will be traveling with children ages 2 &4. I am looking for an uncrowded beach, & a clean, 2 bedroom beach front condo. Any suggestions? I am going at spring break time, want to avoid teenagers! Thanks

What week are you planning on coming - that will make a big difference on whether there will even be spring breakers - much less a crowd on the beach.

I'm heading to the Destin area the last week of July into the first week of August and am also looking for a family friendly, clean, uncrowded beach :) The kiddos are 6 years old each. I've been searching on tripadvisor, airbnb.com, cottagerentalagency.com and so forth, but it is really hard to tell what would actually be a good choice.

Our ideal place would be beachfront (or within 5 min walk) and with a kitchen. That's about it, we don't need nothing fancy as I imagine we'll be spending most of our time out of the room on the beach !! :) Does the beach quality stay the same all the way from Destin to Panama City (In terms of sand and water clarity)?

Thank you so much for any tips! I've been tasked with finding the sleeping place, so I don't want to disappoint the boss ;)

Check out some condos in FWB. We stay at the El Matador. Very family friendly & not so crowded. Look at vrbo.com.

I can't say enough good things about Holiday Isle. We're at Jetty East right now with our three kids. You really can't beat the beach/pool proximity. We stayed on the Jetty side this time, they loved watching the fireworks show last night. Always happy down here.
