We just got back from our week long stay in the condo - unit 804. The building inself is in a great location. Right across the street is the beach. The street has a 25mph speed limit with speed bumps at regular intervals, so we felt fairly comfortable with our teens being able to cross safely to the beach.
Our particular unit was pretty standard. I've seen pic's of other units here that had been totally remodeled and looked incredible. Ours...not so much. It was nice, clean, and comfortable. But we've done several vacation rentals and you can tell when the owner just does enough to make it decent versus going the extra mile to make a geat place for people to stay. On the upside, it was a cheaper rate than those "incredible" looking units. And don't get me wrong, it was still a nice place to stay. The master had a king bed. The girls room had two twin beds. Their only complaint was that the bed frame was skinnier than the bed. My daughter about fell the first time she sat down on the side of the bed.
Our agreement included 2 beach chairs and umbrella. Our teens hit the beach every day but one. My wife and I, only once but we stayed almost all day. There's also two pools for residents; one behind the building and one by the beach.
The beach was great. White sand, clean, and it's shallow for quite a ways out, so you can easily find an open area to play with your Waboba or just enjoy the waves. (And if you don't know...a Waboba is a ball designed for use in the water. Let's keep it clean, people.)
As far as location, it was perfect. Right on a nice beach, about two minutes from Hwy 98 (and it's traffic), but close enough to get to anywhere fairly quickly...again depending on traffic.
This was our first trip to Destin, and we enjoyed it very much. We'll definitely check into staying here again.
