Why Kids Love It
Why Diane and Bob Fiore chose Destin, Florida
We vacationed in Destin, Florida as children ourselves and then as young marrieds with children of our own. When our youngest was accepted to Florida State, we decided to live where we had always vacationed, quit our jobs in Jacksonville, and moved to begin a new life here. We still marvel at the beauty of this special place and are grateful every time we see the emerald blue water of the Gulf of Mexico and walk on the soft white sand.
Beach Resort is Newer, and located in Destin's Miramar Beach community. Close to shopping at Destin Commons, Silver Sands Outlet Mall, Whole Foods,The Fresh Market, Wal-Mart, Publix, Baytown Wharf and Grand Boulevard; Golf at Kelly Plantation, Regatta Bay, Indian Bayou, Sandestin Resort, Emerald Bay, Seascape Santa Rosa Beach Club, Golf Garden; Fishing charters at Destin Harbor; Topsail Hill and Henderson Beach State Parks; Big Kahuna's Water Park& The Track Amusement Park; and lots more.
Attractions Within Walking Distance
THE BEAUTIFUL BEACH!! Isn't that why you are here? Welcome!
Favorite Places To Eat
We have so many! We like to be tourists in our own hometown! Just ask us about our current favorites! However, our top choice is to get a sandwich from Publix and take it to one of our award winning state parks. We love Henderson, Tops'l, and Eden Parks. They all have picnic tables and bathrooms.
Our favorite restaurants include lunch at Harbor Docks, Dewey Destin's with a view of Crab Island for a snapper or grouper sandwich, Pompano Joe's which is a short stroll from Beach Resort and is gulf front with outdoor seating if you like. Our favorite burger PERIOD! is McGuire's Irish Pub, favorite Mexican is La Paz. Best kitchen for great everything seafood is Vintage at Grand Boulevard.

Other Vacation Rental Amenities
As I check the boxes of amenities near by, I realize how much our community has to offer. I think you can find almost all of these things in our area. We have the largest designer outlet mall and fantastic gourmet dining, but we also have a zoo in Gulf Breeze and a wolf preserve in Chipley as well as E. O. Wilson Biophilia Center in Freeport. Some of the most scenic national, state and local parks are nearby. We have a water park, miniature golf, movie theaters, bowling and any kind of water sport you can think of. We have award winning state parks with outstanding hiking and beaches and even hiking TO beaches. Chautauqua Winery is in nearby Defuniak Springs. You can take a scuba lesson or learn to surf, and we have even had whale sightings in our part of the Gulf! We are a world class fishing and golfing destination. You can have bicycles delivered right to the front door. Our pool is heated seasonally which is a wonderful amenity, and the spa is always heated.

Bob and Diane Fiore
Year Purchased: 2006
About the owner: We love Beach Resort! We are the original owners and live locally, so we are able to manage our own property. We take great pride in our top floor gulf-view vacation home. We vacationed for many years in Destin before we bought a home in 1987. Finally, in 2006 we quit our jobs in Jacksonville, Florida and moved to where our hearts lived--at the beach! Our daughters and their families soon joined us, so we have been very fortunate to watch their children grow in a small town with all the quality education and amenities of other areas.
Yes, we have been blessed!
Why this property? We love everything about Beach Resort! The private gulf front beach just a short stroll is perfect for us and our guests. We enjoy being able to provide free beach service from a vendor seasonally which is so convenient for visiting families especially with children. We like the small size with only 64 units while still having the largest and best pool in the area. Lots of families enjoy the bi-level pool and the heated spa as much as they do our soft, white sandy beach. We like them all!
We enjoy our state parks and the opportunity they provide for hiking and quiet reflection. We both love to fish, and Destin has the largest fishing fleet in Florida.
We love the festivals year round-art, music, and wine festivals are favorites of many of our guests who plan vacations around a special event.
Coming to Destin is getting easier and easier as new affordable add new routes airlines. We are always happy to answer your questions.

Guestbook comments from the owner:
Our stay at this Beach Resort condo was nothing short of PERFECT! The bunks were comfortable and the master bed was amazing. The kitchen has all the amenities of home, including a crockpot for easy dinners to enjoy the Florida sun. The condo was clean, linens were soft, the complex was quiet and the space was the perfect size. The pool area was clean, we swam in the heated side as the temps were still cool during the day. We spent time on the beach and had daily chair service with an umbrella included in our rental. I cannot say enough good things about this condo or the owners. Bob & Diane were so nice, very responsive to any questions I had before and during our trip. I highly recommend this condo and already looking forward to our next trip!
We just returned from Destin after a very relaxing two week stay! When we first arrived we noticed how clean the unit looked and smelled. The kitchen had everything we needed and more. Bob and Diane even left us an amazing key lime pie in the fridge. They were so nice to work with from beginning to end. The master bed was very comfortable. Beach service was especially nice, thank you Bob and Diane for allowing us to stay in your condo. Your hospitality was greatly appreciated, we will certainly be back!

This was a perfect condo and vacation spot. The bed was so comfortable, kitchen well stocked, wonderful pool and covered parking spot. Even though I did meet the owners they were very accommodating and wanted to assure I had an awesome relaxing vacation which I did. I hope to return! Thank you for a great week in your condo
We came to the beach resort for a family vacation. We have 2 younger children. When we walked in, we immediately noticed the space and high ceilings! It seemed huge to us and it was nice to have for the week. The pool is large, which our boys loved and we also enjoyed time in the hot tub! It is a very short walk to the beach, which we went to every day. Bob and Diane were great hosts and answered every question we had about the area and things to do. We loved that they were local! The Key Lime Pie was a nice treat to have during the week. We loved everything about this place and would recommend it highly to anyone! If you are looking for an awesome place to stay and awesome people to deal with, then this is your place!
