Guestbook comments from the host:
This was our first visit to Lauren's Beach Retreat and it will not be our last. We previously have rented on 30a and Sandestin. We decided to try something new since those areas are so crowded now. We were not disappointed with this unit. It is much easier to navigate-no giant parking garages, no waiting on elevators-and plenty of room on the beach! Last year we had someone literally knock into our chair in front of one of the towers at Sandestin. This year, we had room to spread out on the beach. The unit was clean with lots of extras not usually in a rental unit-laundry detergent, hand soap pumps, Ziploc bags. The location was very convenient to restaurants and shopping. The owners were great and very communicative.
Laurens Condo Is amazing, wonderfully decorated. My family of 6 adults and our 20 month old grand daughter had plenty of room. This unit was above and beyond from the garage, to grill, to the beach chairs, floats, and basically anything needed for a great vacation. This made our 3rd yr in this condo. Highly Recommend this UNIT
What a wonderful time my family and I had, staying in this beautiful condo! We had everything, plus more, we needed to make our stay comfortable and very welcoming. We had plenty of space for the five of us, and having an elevator was so so convenient for lugging in luggage and groceries. We enjoyed having the beach so close. I hope to have the opportunity to return to this area, and I would definitely rent this vacation unit again. Thanks for allowing us to stay and create precious memories.

We love staying at Lauren’s Beach Retreat at Pavilion Palm. We have stayed 3 times at Lauren’s Beach Retreat and it’s always perfect! The location is perfect and within walking distance to several restaurants. One of my favorite things is the patio/balcony is comfortable and perfect for morning coffee!

Beautiful Beach Retreat
Our family of 5 stayed here over fall break and it was so lovely. We enjoyed sitting on the spacious patio every morning and drinking coffee while being able to view the ocean and sunrise. The condo has everything we needed for a wonderful week. It was extremely clean and the owner was very responsive to any questions we had prior to arrival. The condo is equipped with a large garage and it also has a closet full of beach chairs, floats, and sand toys. We hope to return soon!

Fantastic location and beautiful view.
We loved our stay here and will be a repeat customer. The condo is beautiful and has everything that you will need INCLUDING beach toys for the kids. We had five adults and three children and never felt cramped. The balcony over looked the pool and the beach was visible from the balcony as well. Conveniently located is an understatement. There was a Five Star restaurant across from the complex and shops within walking distance. Your family will love it.

Best vacation start yet
Our family of 6 really enjoyed our stay. This was the most spacious and cleanest place we have stayed at in Florida so far. The beds were comfortable and we could tell all of the beddings and towels were actually cleaned (in comparison to most hotels). We appreciated that the necessities such as oil, sugar, and flour were provided so we wouldn’t have to buy it just for our week stay. The owners were very prompt in responding to questions and sending additional information and reminders. The whole process was seamless and very professional.It was also an extra “bonus” that extra paper towels, toilet paper, beach chairs, and beach toys were provided if we needed it.The only “downfall” that we could think of is that the ceiling was too thin, so we could hear the people above us pretty clearly. It wasn’t that big of an issue though and doesn’t take away from our 5-star rating. Once again, the owners were so easy to work with and were very accommodating. Definitely recommend this place to anyone wanting a close stay to the beach with more of a “home-y” feel as opposed to a hotel.

This is a wonderful condo I highly recommend it and you will not be disappointed.

Spacious, clean and accessible owners if needed!
A repeat visitor! We’ve stayed at Lauren’s Condo several times and have not been disappointed, It is spacious, well equipped, clean, and has a nice location with several restaurants within walking distance. AND the pictures are accurate. Most importantly, the owners are very accessible and they are a delight to work with - which is an added bonus. You will not be disappointed.

A Beautiful Place to Rest
Just stayed at Lauren’s Beach Retreat last week. The owners are very attentive and provided a beautiful condo with many amenities. The living room/kitchen area is very spacious. There are 3 bedrooms and 3 full bathrooms that easily accommodated our group of two adults and three college age students. An added bonus is the covered patio, a great place to start the morning. The unit is set back a bit from the road, Scenic 98, which adds to the privacy. Another bonus is the garage and the storage room loaded with beach supplies. The beach and restaurants are a short walk away. Obviously, a great place to stay!

Just returned from renting Lauren’s Beach Retreat and it was probably the best place we’ve used in our visits to the Destin area. The living room/kitchen area is spacious and equipped with everything you will need. Three bedrooms and 3 full bathrooms worked great with the 3 young adults we brought with us. The covered patio is large and especially great for breakfast before hitting the beach. The unit is tucked back slightly from the road (Scenic 98) that you cross to access the beach. This gives you a little more peacefulness when sitting out on the porch. You can even use the garage that each unit is provided, along with the beach supplies in the storage closet. Just bring a beach towel, toothbrush, and swimsuit and you are set!

We just stayed a week at Lauren’s Beach Retreat with 4 adults and two teenage boys. We all had our own room and bathroom and the amenities are abundant. The kitchen is stocked and ready to cook in. The beach closet has everything you need for spending days at the beach. It even has a beach cart that makes the short walk to the beach easier. The covered balcony was my favorite spot to drink coffee in the morning. The owners are extremely helpful and easy to communicate with. I would highly recommend this condo to anyone looking for a quiet place to get away to the beach.

☀️ Amazing Beach Retreat
Our family of 5 (2 parents, 2 adult children and 1 teenager) just got home from a week at Lauren’s Beach Retreat and it was simply amazing! The condo is beautifully decorated, clean, well stocked kitchen, nice appliances, huge washer/dryer, very spacious, and in a great end-unit spot. The Pavilion Palms buildings are calm and quiet-just what we look for on vacation. The pool was very quiet, something we really search for when looking for a rental! We enjoyed the beautiful beach near Pompano Joe’s, the ability to walk to several other restaurants, and our morning walks to the coffee shop. This condo has everything you need for a perfect week at the beach! Our favorite might have been the covered porch in the mornings and evenings. The owners are so nice and easy to communicate with. This condo gets a 10/10 from our family! We can’t wait to come back next year.

We just returned home from an amazing week at Lauren’s Beach Retreat. The condo is beautifully decorated and so spacious. We had 4 adults and 4 teenagers with plenty of space. We enjoyed the spacious balcony while drinking coffee in the mornings and watching the kids swim in the late afternoon. The condo is within walking distance to several restaurants and just a short walk to the beach. The owners have a storage closet stocked with all things needed(umbrella, chairs, toys) for a fabulous day at the beach.

Wonderful Condo! Wonderful Location!
This is the 2nd year we have stayed at Lauren's Beach Retreat. We love this condo! Very spacious, beautifully decorated and well situated for an ocean view. Pavilion Palms has a beautiful pool and is a very short walk to the beach. The owners have filled the outside storage room with many beach and pool supplies and the kitchen is outfitted with all the necessary items. The owners have set this condo up for a great vacation and are great to communicate with. We were 100% pleased with this entire experience and look forward to returning again next year!

Highly Recommend Lauren's Beach Retreat!
I recently graduated nursing school with my best friend and the two of us wanted to go on a fun vacation together. We stayed at Lauren's Beach Retreat and had the best time! The condo was very spacious and so nicely decorated. We had a very short walk to the beach! We were also in a great location, being within walking distance to Pompano Joe's and other beach front restaurants! The owners were very friendly and easy to communicate with! I highly recommend staying here! I plan to be back!!

The condo was perfect for us. There was 4 adults and 4 kids staying. It felt like home away from home. It was clean, fully stocked with convenient items on arrival (toilet paper, paper towels, laundry detergent, spices, etc). Of course we replenished the items we used, but it was nice not having to run out as soon as we arrived. The beds were beyond comfortable! I loved the beach decor too. The balcony was so nice too. We were able to look out at the palm trees, pool, and could see some of the ocean too. The condo was so convenient to the beach, only a parking lot and a crosswalk away from it. The pool had a hose and a shower outside to clean off all the sand after visiting the beach and before getting in the pool. The storage unit had beach chairs, toys, and a push cart to bring the items to the beach! Walking distance to Pompano Joe’s where we enjoyed happy hour and seafood. I miss it so much already. We had a wonderful time for our first stay in Destin & we can’t wait to go back!

Lauren’s beach retreat was absolutely AMAZING!
Lauren’s beach retreat was absolutely AMAZING! There was everything you needed right there! The rental was fully stocked with everything to cook with, start out your vacation, and enjoy the whole time there! From kitchen accessories to bathroom linens and beach equipment. Honestly it was so convenient to enjoy time at the pool or walk over to the beach. We enjoyed having our morning coffee on the balcony and cooking out on the grill at dinner time. The owners have it decorated beautifully on the inside and it makes you feel right at the beach! I would definitely come back here & hopefully someday have a place just as nice to call my own beach retreat! Thank you to the owners for open communication and inviting us into your beach home!

Excellent location in Miramar Beach Area
I rented this condo for my husband, daughter and her family - plus we had 3 grandkids. This condo was very clean and spacious. I could tell the owners cared about this property. One of the nicest features was the spacious covered veranda, which provided good sun cover if needed, and could be used in the rain as well. The owners were responsive and easy to communicate with during the pre-renting process. Even little things (that can be a huge benefit!) like appliances (dishwasher, frig, ice maker, washer and dryer) all worked well which was wonderful. The 3 full bathrooms were all reasonable sizes which was a pleasant surprise too. There were ample towels in the bathrooms and kitchen area. The photos accurately show this unit accurately; the unit IS how it appears in photos! We would definitely rent from these owners again!

Our home away from home.
Lauren’s Beach Retreat is wonderful. The beautiful kitchen is well stocked with anything you might need. The rooms are spacious. Each bedroom has its own bathroom. We spent many hours on the balcony’s comfortable furniture overlooking the pool and the Gulf. The condo is very clean with lots of linens. The pool and grounds are very well kept. It was nice to have a garage. Walking distance to the Gulf and many restaurants. Lauren and Mark are very friendly attentive owners. We will be back.

My daughter and 3 yr old Granddaughter stayed here with me. We loved the comfy space it offered With very nice decor. All bedrooms were a good size. Spent a lot of time out on the covered deck. It’s very private with plenty of shade and large comfortable furniture. Short walk up the steps So no need to use the elevator, which was nice. We may want to stay here again in the near future.

Best place we have ever stayed!!!
This condo was perfect for our family of four! We loved the extra space and our kids had their own bedrooms and bathrooms. The condo is so warm and welcoming and Mark was great! He checked on us during our stay to make sure all was well. He did not miss any details and was great to work with. The condo was just as the pictures show and the kitchen was very well stocked! I cooked a lot during our stay and we enjoyed eating on the balcony. We had a view of the gulf but we did not miss being oceanfront one time because the condo was so nice and quite. The walk to the beach is very short...just through the parking lot, across the road and down the steps to the beach. We will definitely be back!! This was the best family vacation we have taken! So many memories were made. During our stay, we took a private sailboat charter in Destin called Vitamin Sea Sailing Charters. That was so much fun! We got to see a bunch of dolphins and our kids did some snorkeling. I highly recommend doing this! We found them on Facebook. We also went scuba diving with Scuba Tech at the Destin jetties. It was awesome! After our excursions, we looked forward to going back to the condo to enjoy some much needed downtime. Our kids loved the WiFi and the TVs in their bedrooms. So relaxing!
