My wife and I took our first visit to Destin 9/21 to 9/24 for a short get away. Having never stayed in Destin I searched TripAdvisor and found Sea Oats, man are we glad we did. The apartment we rented O-3 is on the second floor directly above the office, unlike the motel rooms there is an elevator to each of the 2 floors above the office area.
The room has a king sized bed in a small, but not too small bedroom immediately to the right when entering the apartment, there is a TV in the bedroom. Next is the bathroom which has a full tub/shower. Next is the kitchen area with a full sized refrigerator, stove, microwave and important to us a coffee maker, there is a dining table between the kitchen and the living area. From there you enter the living area which is comfortable with a sleeper sofa and one chair, there is a medium sized flat screen TV which received around 60 channels.
The smallish balcony has 2 chairs overlooking the pool and there is a limited view of the ocean. We could hear the ocean but we could also hear the pumps for the pool, so that was a negative for us but certainly not something that bothered us a great deal.
Everything was clean, there was plenty of towels for our 3 night stay but you could swap out your towels for clean ones in the office if you need. There is no daily housekeeping service at Sea Oats.
The beach is beautiful and really only about a minute walk from the room, 2 chairs and an umbrella are available for rental each day for $25. We found restaurants close by and also I played golf as there are several courses close by from which to chose.
The staff was friendly from the 2 ladies I spoke with in the office to the maintenance man I spoke with for about 10 minutes.
