Our stay at the Surfside resort Destin, FL was great! We rented our condo directly from the owner, however, we originally found the condo on VRBO.com.
We were hesitate to go because hurricane Gustav was suppose to hit just west of Destin the day we were to arrive. But the owners were very understanding so we wound up going. And we are so glad we did!
We had a 3 bed, 3 bath condo. We had 6 adults and 1 baby. It was furnished with most everything we needed. Could have used a few minor things but not really a big deal. Our balcony was huge! Loved that!
First of all, we were there Sept 1st (Labor Day) for the whole week. There was no crowds at all. Very good time to go. Pick your spot on the beach. The ocean was a little rough but to be expected with the hurricane and all. Perfect weather though. Windy for the first 3 days, with double red flags, but after that. great! We actually liked the wind.
The Surfside resort was good. We did have a little trouble with our air conditioner getting cold enough, but it was still cool. However, had it been in the heat of the summer, then that might have been a problem.
We didn't have to deal with the resort people at all since we booked directly with the owner. The resort restaurant and tiki bar were closed though which would have been nice had they been open. The pool felt great and there were two hot tubs as well as a kiddie pool too. The walkway over the road to the beach was nice but just as easy to cross street too. The owner of our condo provided complimentary beach service so that was a real plus.
The area around the condo was very nice. The condo's across the street and directly behind were very nice! You really had to drive to most everything though except there was a restaurant on the beach that you could walk to. It was the Whales Tail I believe it was. We only got drinks there one night though so couldn't comment on the food. But I did hear it was expensive.
We didn't have issues with the elevators like I've read on here before. But it may have been because it wasn't busy this time of year.
Would I stay here again? Probably would.
