We found Tops'l Beach & Racquet Resort to be a very family-friendly Resort . Just the type of place to feel comfortable with children and so much to do to keep them busy.. Once we saw the beautiful views offered from the 5th fl. end unit, we knew this was exactly where we wanted to spend our free time and possibly retire someday.

Year Purchased: 1997
About the owner: My husband and I were both born and raised in Pittsburgh, PA. We've been married 44yrs. and have 2 daughters, 2 son-in-laws, 2 grandsons and a Yorkiepoo. We enjoy traveling, boating, tennis, paddle tennis, auto racing, Pittsburgh Steelers, Penquins, Pirates and spending time with our family and friends. We own a heating and air conditioning business in Pittsburgh and have been in business for 45 years.
Why this property? I first visited Destin in 1969 while visiting my sister and brother-in-law who live in nearby Ft. Walton Beach. After marriage and the birth of our daughters, we began visiting Destin every summer and at times during the holidays. One rare rainy day during our 1996 summer vacation to Destin, we decided to look at a new construction condo development in a popular Resort area. After seeing the beauty of this Resort and the area surrounding Tops'l, we couldn't resist the urge to purchase our first condo. The construction was completed and we moved into our new unit early in 1997. Nine years later we sold it and purchased unit 514 which, in our opinion, has a better Gulf and Resort view. We never regretted our move and have now owned this unit for 11 yrs. We feel so fortunate to have had this opportunity to share many memorable moments with our daughters and other family members. We now hope to have many happy memories and experiences with our grandchildren.

Perfect Family Vacation!!
This was our family's 1st trip to Destin and before we even left to go home, we were already talking about how excited we were to come back the following year!The unit was absolutely beautiful and more than we expected! We are a family of 6 with 4 small children. We fit perfectly with room to spare and never felt on top of each other.The location was beyond perfect. The beach was such a short walk from the unit and was breathtaking. We spent a lot of time at each of the resorts swimming pools which our kids loved.There's not one thing I'd change about this unit and its location. I look forward to many more family vacations there!

JenniferI'm glad to hear you and your family were comfortable and enjoyed your stay at our condo while vacationing in Destin. We enjoyed vacationing in Destin when raising our family and found the Summit building to be a great location and Top'l a safe Resort for families of all ages. We have wonderful memories when our children were young and now have the same opportunity with our grandchildren.Have a great summer and I'll look forward to hearing from you again next year.~Mary Beth
