About the owner: My husband and I have 3 grown kiddos and have just recently retired from the military after a great 24 years of service. We were stationed all over the world and had some fantastic adventures but fell in love with the sugary white beaches of Destin! We decided to buy a condo on the beach to share with family and friends! When we are not using the condo for personal time, we are happy to rent it out to share the great beaches of the Emerald Coast with other families! I
know that when I vacation, staying in a really nice place is as important to me as the location. I don't like it when it looks like the rental places have left over furniture and old linens in it. :( So, we have renovated the condo from top to bottom to make sure that this is a place people would LOVE to relax in after a full day at the beach. New linens, bedding, furniture--everything is brand new and updated!! We have complimentary beach chairs and toys- so you can head right down to the beach and start your vacation.
Anita was great to work with and the condo was clean and perfect! We went with another couple to celebrate empty nesting. The condo is stocked with everything… from coffee and ziploc bags to toilet paper and garbage bags! Oh yeah - she has movies, books and games too! We have never stayed at a condo that’s supplied so many necessities. It was really appreciated and made the stay more pleasurable. We will for sure return- thank you!!

Excellent condo and host
I hate to recommend this little gem, only because I don’t want it booked when I want to rent it…haha.The condo was beautiful, clean and supplied with anything you might need. The host went above and beyond to supply information about the area and local restaurants. I would highly recommend this condo. Anita was wonderful!!!!The only negative is more geared toward the beach set-up, but Anita explained how to get around it. I have never been to a resort where they have 4 rows of rental chairs/umbrellas. It basically takes up the whole beach in front of Pelican Beach Resort. It left only the very back for those that had their own chairs/umbrellas. I come to the beach to be able to get a good spot if I get out there early enough. They should really limit the number of rows the vendor can set up. Anita has no control over this but she did give me the secret to go up and sit at the tide line. We did just that!Again, highly recommend!!!!!

This Condo was wonderful. Very clean, kitchen had all the cooking supplies you would need. We enjoyed our week stay there as much as anywhere we have booked online. The big balcony is really nice and overlooks the beach, which is beautiful. Oh and the Welcome Basket that was there when we arrived was sooo special!. Can't go wrong booking this condo!!!

Amazing Beach Getaway
Went for a weekend getaway and the condo was AMAZING! Super clean and cozy feeling and in the perfect location for tourist attractions, dining, and shopping. Also the view from the balcony is PRICELESS! Anita was an amazing host and provided great recommendations on dining and shopping.

Beautiful Beach Getaway
The condo was super clean, well decorated, and had everything we needed for our stay. We appreciate the welcome basket and the attention to details were outstanding. Anita did a great job giving us places to go for dinner during our trip. We enjoyed our stay and would strongly recommend it to families looking to stay in Destin!

We got lucky. While looking at rental properties we stopped when we found this one. Right on the beach, amazing view, and even better than the pictures. Anita (the owner) was very accommodating and made sure we had everything we needed. We immediately added another night to our stay. Highly recommend

Fantastic! Cute! Clean! Best Host Ever!
This is a fantastic condo. It was so cute, clean, and the hostess was wonderful! She went above and beyond to help and accommodate us. The whole time we were there we talked about how we are going to rent from her again. We had a wonderful time and I highly suggest reaching out to her!Thank you!

A small slice of heaven
The condo was not only beautiful but it was immaculate. The pictures do not do it justice. It felt like home as soon as we walked in. The view of the ocean was stunning and you can see for miles from the balcony. But the most wonderful part of this rental had nothing to do with the property, it was Anita. She was so kind and really tailored the special details specifically to us. We’ve never experienced hospitality like this!

Thank you for your lovely review! I try really hard make sure everything is perfect and I’m glad I was able to host you for your special “girls” trip. Your family is so sweet!
Best rental we've ever stayed at!!!
What can I say , except this was the best experience we have ever had. The condo was beachfront and looked better than the pictures! It's totally renovated and looks like something out of Southern Living. The place was spotless- I mean white glove spotless- which is something I really appreciate. The place is stocked with coffee, laundry detergent and other amenities which made it so easy to just arrive and enjoy. The owner, Anita, was so nice and helpful. She really went out of her way to make our stay the best. My son was celebrating his birthday (he's 10) and she had the place totally decorated with balloons and such and even had a cake waiting for us!! My son was over the moon! She also had boogie boards, beach chairs and toys for us to use. We will be back!!! If you are looking to rent a place on the beach- this is it!!

We normally come to the beach at least twice a year. Without a doubt, this is the best experience I have had with an owner. Anita Smith went above, and beyond to make our stay outstanding! My mother-in-law is about to turn 80 years old, and really hasn't gone anywhere since my father-in-law passed away. Anita went out of her way, and setup a surprise for her that was waiting for us when we arrived. My Mother-in-law walked in, and there was balloons, a cake, a Happy Birthday sign, flowers, and a bottle of wine! She was so touched, she started to cry. The condo was spotless! The view was so serene. I loved sitting on the balcony, and listening to the waves. Anita thought of everything, from beach chairs and towels, to a small cooler that we could use. She personally launders the sheets, and comforters after every tenant. The condo has a restaurant that is very reasonably priced, and the food is delicious. They also have a little hut where you can get drinks. The margarita's were yummy! Anita gave us tips on which restaurants to go to, and her reviews were spot on! We loved LuLu's the best. The food and service was outstanding! Great place for kids. McGuire's was good too. It has a really cool atmosphere. When we left, my mother-in-law came up to me, and said this was a vacation she would never forget! We will rent with Anita again. She is one of a kind. I would book with her direct to avoid additional fees.
