Awesome condo, and Owner

February 2, 2015

From the first E-mail, we knew Mary was a good owner that cares about her guest, We are building a home in the area and needed a month to get our permits in order to start our build, Mary gave us a discount for renting for the month, The condo is very cean and well stocked in linens and the kitchen, Very nicely decorated to put you in the beach vacation mood, Very nice quiet walk to the beach, We have been in the area many times so we knew were to eat and what to see and do, But even if we had never been here, Mary had a info under the coffee table for local shops and fun things to do, Thank you for a wonderful stay, The days were full of stress dealing with county officials gettiing our permits, But we rested easy knowing we were not going to have any issues once we returned back to the condo Jack & Jo Owens

Can't wait to go back

July 23, 2013

Very nice house, it met all of our expectations. The house is close enough to walk to beach, it's in a nice and quit neighborhood also. Two of my kids complained about the couch bed but they still slept on it every night, however I have never slept really good on one of them couch beds. So when I go back I will probably bring a blow up mattress for them to sleep on. The owner is nice and was easy to get a hold of when we had questions.

This is a great property, clean and has ALL YOU NEED for your stay. Owner is very friendly. Very convinient and walking distance to the beach, Pompano Joe's restaurant on the beach is very close, this vacation was the most pleasant experience that I had in Destin so far. This was a last minute rental after my condo became unavailable. And form now on it will be my new vacation destination for Destin. 11 of of 10 points, VERY HAPPY!

Condo was roomy and convenient to beach. Just wished it had been a little bit warmer our first 3 days in Destin. It was convenient to all my favorite shops and restaurants , as well. all the comforts of home and very friendly neighbors.

Family Vacation

September 21, 2012

We loved our stay and would love to come back. This was a much needed break for our family of six and we felt very at home with all the accommodations. The home was lovely and just a skip from the beach and pier. We even ventured out to neighboring towns to explore the lovely Florida coast.

Last minute vacation

July 22, 2012

We booked 1 day before our vacation. Mary was great from the start and made our last minute plans possible. We've never been to Destin so really didn't know anything about location. This was perfect less than 1/2 a mile from the beach. The big kahuna (water park), shopping and eating was all within a short distance from the condo. We had 5 in this condo and. its was plenty of room. However the sofa sleeper was not very comfortable. Other than that we had a great vacation. Thanks

mary galloway

Owner's reply:

Thank you Bryan for feedback regarding sleeper sofa. I will make sure it has a pillow top.

Beautiful and relaxing

July 5, 2010

The condo was very clean and comfortable, with all the added luxaries of home. The owner was easy to work with and made us feel as if we were friends coming to spend the weekend while she was away. The only down side was trying to find the location with streets not coming up on Garmin or mapquest. Directions would be helpful to be included in the leasing agreement. I would come back again and again.
