Where to stay??

Hi all, I have a long list going of options for our upcoming Memorial Day beach trip. We're looking for a 2BR condos, and we are having such a hard time narrowing it down! If you have any input, that would be great. We'd love to be right on the beach if possible...and will be traveling with a toddler so the more kid friendly, the better. Thanks in advance!

The places are:

Islander

Chateau La Mer

Shoreline Garden

Ciboney

Sandpiper Cove

Sterling Shores Hotel

If I had a toddler....(all of mine are grown up!) I would stay at GulfGate. It has a brand new pool that looks like it's one of those kinds that has a shallow end to just walk into. You can google gulfgate destin and they have a webcam on there and just take a look at the place. Have a great trip!! BarB

The Islander is the only of these that is beach front... would get my nod...

Next would be Sterling Shores (not a hotel though)...

Depending on where in the complex, Chateau Le Mer and Sandpiper Cove could be quite a hike to the beach...

Shoreline Gardens are large townhomes that do have direct gulf access down a path and a very large seemingly never crowded pool area. Depending on the unit, prolly get my nod.

Sandpiper Cove without a doubt. We have stayed there two years in a row. We are leaving in 8 days for this years trip. I have a 4 year old and he LOVES it. They do have beachfront units. However, I prefer to stay back on the golf course with a little one. You won't be disappointed with Sandpiper.

Islander would be my first pick. Located right on the beach.

I just tried to pull up Shoreline Gardens... looked at listings on VRBO.

Looks to be a small, rectangular pool, that does not seem to be toddler/kid friendly?

And, are many of their units townhomes with stairs?
