This is Paradise!!

Beautiful place to stay in Destin with all the upgrades as promised. Extremely neat and clean and so many extras! The views are beautiful and everything we needed was there. We had a wonderful anniversary getaway....can't wait to come back again!!

Fabulous Beach Condo

Condo was absolutely gorgeous, top of the line furnishings, appliances, and superbly decorated, very designer in appearance. Furniture & beds were comfortable, and condo was extremely clean. Appreciated the thoughtful Tide pods, dryer sheets, sand chairs and beach toys, and definitely the Keurig. Lanai was spacious, and lanai furniture was very comfortable, yet sturdy. Beach view was awesome! Condo is right on the beach, who could ask for more?Also the beach set ups were wonderful. Can hardly wait to visit again next year! Thank you Larry & Kathy

Beyond your imagination!

Why lower your standard of living to go to the beach? Now you don't have to! You can stay at this lovely HOME (it is by far not a rental!) with top quality furnishings, linens, and kitchen accessories, and feel like you are not roughing it on vacation. Far from your typical condo set-up, these owners have anticipated your every need. Daily I would think, "Oh, I could really use this right now, wonder if they have it..." and presto - I would find it. From a vacuum cleaner to get up the little bits of sand during the week (every tried sweeping sand?), to grilling utensils, to extension cords around EVERY corner for your plug-ins! The electronics in this unit went beyond our needs too. Huge flat screens in every room, stereo sound, and ON DEMAND in the main living area. It was so nice to take a rest break and find a favorite classic movie via On Demand, just like home! This owner does not scrimp and you truly feel like you are living in his home for the week, so nice! I laughed when we checked in because after a long 12 hour trip, it was so nice to check out the home and feel a little bit like Goldilocks! Like a nice firm mattress that feels brand new? There's a bed for that. Prefer a little softer touch pillow-top feeling? There's a bed for that. Something for everyone! I will never rent from property management again! Mr. Victor sets the gold standard in taking care of his guests!!

Amazing beach condo!!!

This condo is absolutely amazing! My family and I had such a good time! The owners are so nice and went out of their way for us! Would definitely stay at "Paradise Found" again!!!

beautiful and serene

We were here for a week and everything in the ad is as stated. The the condo was very clean and is lovingly decorated with comfortable beds and stunning views of the gulf. The kitchen has more than the minimal equipment. The location is quiet while being close to shopping and entertainment out on the main highway. This has been our favorite stay in Destin and we will be back.

No worries!

We were very pleased with our CD 202 stay in April 2014. We found the condo very clean and well stocked with necessities. Bathrooms were very nice, and bedroom furniture seemed new and was lovely. Owners were the most organized we have dealt with is our six trips to Destin. Wouldn't hesitate to use them again!

Had a wonderful time. The condo was beautiful. The pictures do not do it justice. Would recommend it to anyone. Will be returning for another stay in June.

Perfect Vacation Spot!

Our family rented this condo for our spring break and it was absolutely perfect! Our kids (ages 9 and 6) just wanted to go to the beach and the pool and this was exactly what we had envisioned. A beautiful private beach and a wonderful heated pool. The kids loved it!! The condo was the perfect size for our family (Grammy and Grampy were even able to come for a few days). The condo is beautifully decorated, yet feels very homey and relaxing. We loved looking out over the beach and on the few rainy days that we had (boo!), there was plenty of entertainment inside when we weren't out exploring the area. We loved every minute of our vacation and our only complaints were the rainy weather the first few days and that we had to eventually come home. Thank you Paradise Found for a wonderful stay! We hope to be back again.

Perfect Condo at Crystal Beach

From start to finish - a wonderful trip. The condo is beautiful, spacious and perfectly located. The views of the beach are stunning, and even when it was cool and rainy, we enjoyed just sitting the comfortable patio furniture and watching the waves. The furnishings were new and the updates to the condo were very well done, with a smart use of space. It was great to have seating in the living room that was comfortable and spacious enough for the whole family to gather and watch a movie. To top it off, Larry (the owner) was great to work with. He called to check on us, communicated well through the rental process, and made sure we were set up for a great week. We hope to be back next year!

This condo is beyond 5 Stars!! STAR 1: DIRECTLY on the beach, the pictures don't do the view justice! STAR 2: Location in Destin area. . .perfect! Walk to get ice cream or yogurt, across the street for coffee, 2 minute drive for shopping, groceries, drug store etc. STAR 3: Interior décor new and amazing! Newly redecorated, the pictures don't do it justice....high quality furniture, granite countertops (kitchen and baths), bed linens and towels are SO plush! STAR 4: First class electronics. . .flat screens in living room and all bedrooms, multichannel cable, dvd players, Wi-Fi AND free local and long-distance calls.

Paradise Found in Paradise!

Wow! We had high expectations when we rented this Paradise Found condo since it had just been renovated, but we certainly didn’t expect all the extras. Not only was just about everything new, the unit was immaculate! The towels were more plush than we had at home and my husband commented that the beds were the most comfortable he had ever slept in! On top of everything else, the owners had provided two coffee makers – the regular Mr. Coffee and a Keurig! Among some of the extras were the latest in kids DVD, which our children certainly enjoyed at night and even Tide pods, Downy sheets and dishwashing cubes and unlimited number of plastic garbage bags were even included! Larry even called and made sure we had no problems. The condo is located right on the beach and we didn’t have to go far for the kids to build their sand castle. Although it was December, we had some really warm days and enjoyed the uncrowded beach. Only negative thing was that we couldn’t stay longer, but we will be back next year!
