Beautiful view, condo extremely clean and very tastefully decorated. Gorgeous beach and ocean just steps away. Everything imaginable available in the condo. Upon arrival we were left a thoughtful note and bottle of wine. We are looking forward to our stay again next July.

“Great place to stay on the Beach!”

Reviewed 27 Jun 2016

Condo was great! Right on the beach. Great balcony views. Clean. Plenty of room for all of us. Loved the 2 masters. Fantastic location. Next to plenty of things to do. Would recommend to anyone and we will definitely try to book again for future vacations!

As soon as you open the door you see the stunning panoramic water views. I spent a lot of time on the balcony! The shower is very spacious and has great water pressure. Can't wait to come back, thanks Millie!

“Loved the view!!”

Reviewed 20 Apr 2016

Excellent views of the gulf. The condo was spacious and beautiful. Beautiful decor and well updated. Very well stocked kitchen, we had everything we could possibly need. Washer and dryer in the unit were very handy, especially with the size of our group. Access to the balcony from any room was wonderful. The outdoor pool and hot tubs were clean and inviting, especially when the gulf was a little too chilly for us. My boyfriend has stayed in Destin several times before and stated that this was by far the best condo they (he and his children) have ever been in. The building is clean and quiet. When inside the unit, we were never disturbed by the sound of anyone else. I did not have an opportunity to use the fitness room on this trip, however my daughter said that it was very nice. We could not have been any happier with our stay, and look forward to visiting again!

The condo is spacious, comfortable, and beautiful! The view is awesome; bring binoculars so you can see the dolphins in the morning up close. The location is perfect and there's so many places eat nearby. We will definitely be staying at this place again on our next trip to Destin. It doesn't get any better

“Luv it at the Beach exceeded our expectations”

Reviewed 23 Jun 2015

We were looking forward to our trip to Destin for months but we were overjoyed when we arrived at our condo. It was even better than the photos that we had viewed online. Our ocean view was out of this world. We had everything that we needed and more. We loved it and are planning a return trip next summer. Wonderful location, close to the beach, very clean and accommodating. We definitely suggest this condo for your next trip to Destin.

“Great Time at Surfside in Destin Florida”

Reviewed 4 Aug 2014

Everything was great about our stay at Surfside Resort that I booked through Wyndham. Everyone I spoke with was courteous and extremely information. We arrived a little while prior to check in time so we were guided to the pool area where we were able to change into our swimsuits and relax in the pool and enjoy a few beverages from the poolside bar. When our unit was ready we went upstairs and to our condot and was very pleased with what we found. The condo was very clean, beautifully decorated and spacious. We had all the comforts of home. The kitchen was well stocked with everything needed for cooking. There were plenty of towels and supplies that we would need during our stay. All of the beds were very comfortable and we had plenty of pillows and blankets. The view of the ocean from the spacious terrace was breathtaking. The restaurant in complex was not only convenient but also delicious. The beach access was also very convenient. We were furnished with chairs and beach umbrellas for lounging next to the water. The beach was not overcrowded and very clean. The pool area was very nice and well kept. There were also two hot tubs for our use. Just can't say enough good things about our stay at the resort. I will for sure be booking my next vacation through Wyndham.

The condo was clean and beautiful. The view was absolutely amazing. Close to all major attractions, shops and restaurants. We will definitely be staying here again!!

“Beautiful condo with spectacular views”

Reviewed 24 Jul 2014

We couldn't have asked for a better place to stay in Destin. Millie's 'Luv It at the Beach' unit is a clean, comfortable and beautifully decorated condo. We rented 601 and 601a and it worked out well for 2 parents and 3 kids. People are impressed when we show them the photos of our stay. We spent a deal of time on the balcony. There are plenty of tables and chair so that all of us could be out there. Dinner on the balcony was fun. We appreciated having plenty of towels, all kitchen items, full size coffee maker, toaster and the lovely bottle of wine left for us by the owner. We were very comfortable having 3 bedrooms, 3 baths, a living room and a dining area. You just can't get that kind of room and comfort in a hotel. Surfside Resort is very well maintained. The hallways, lobby and elevators are all clean and well taken care of. Same goes for the pool and fitness room. I think the best part of the resort is its close proximity to the beach. In just a few steps we were there. We would love to return to Millie's 601 unit at Surfside Resort and hope to do so in the future.

Reviewed 8 Apr 2014

For 4 years straight we have been spending our spring break in unit 601 of Surfside. We absolutely love our week every year in this condo and always feel so at home. The condo is very spacious and well appointed. It has everything you need, just like home. The glass wrapped deck overlooking the pool area and ocean is perfect for enjoying an early morning sunrise or late evening sunset. Surfside is a family friendly atmosphere and our kids ages 5 & 10 enjoy it as much as we do. Centrally located to restaurants, groceries and the outlet malls. We could not imagine a better place to spend our spring break every year and cannot wait to go back next year.

Very nice place.Very clean and spacious shower. Great water view.

Everything that had to do with the layouts and specially the location was great. The property was very neat and the customer service was good. We would totally recommend this property to any one who's a friend or family and even to people that aren't because the condo was really great we all enjoyed it it was a short walk to the pool, an easy access the beach, you don't have to worry about crossing the street, and the kitchen and the condo were well equipped. Last the view to the beach from all rooms was awesome!

Beautiful condo. The owner has really decorated the condo for comfort and beauty. View was great. We had our 2 grandchildren with us and everyone had there own bed and TV! Most importantly it was clean! The owner knows what you need in your condo to have a great stay. I would recommend this property. We were supplied with a list of local restaurants that was very helpful. The owner sent me a text when a storm warning was approaching. N I can't say enough about this owner and condo.

Millie, Thank you for sharing 601 and
601a with the Born's and our family.
The condos were absolutely beautiful,
clean and well stocked for all of our
needs. The ocean views made this
location even more fabulous. We enjoyed
the pool, hot tubs and the sauna
everyday and they all added up to a
memorable trip. We sincerely hope we
can stay again another time. It was
truly a magical week.

Loved getting up every morning enjoying my coffee on the balcony. Only a couple of days of clouds but that didn't stop us from having a great time. We ate at several restaurants that you recommended not a bad meal at any. Thanks again love the wine & chocolates.

Millie, Thank you so much for allowing us to stay in your beautiful condo. We have been coming to Surfside for the last 25 years with 4 other couples. We always check out each others condo after we check in. They all said, I bet you don't get this condo next year. They.re going to try and beat me to the reservation when we come back! We loved it here and will be back. I've just got to be the one to call you first. Thanks again! The Sanderson's Harvest Al.

Dear Millie, Once again we spent 2 glorious months in our favorite place--601 & 601a. We hate to leave but realize it will only be 10 months and we will be back. We have had two wonderful months. The weather was exceptional this year, which only adds to the beauty of the condo and the scenery. Thanks for all you do for us. We appreciate it all. As well as your friendship. We will stay in touch and look forward to January 1, 2014.
Love, Larry & Lori Arkansas

Thanks Millie! We have had a wonderful time, as usual. This was our 1st time in this condo & we loved it! We didn't mind the rain at all yesterday, Great condo, great views!

We had a great time and my husband loved the condo as did we all but he's the hardest to please. We come down every year for a week so we'll look forward to next year!

Thank you,

Clean, comfortable, spacious condo overlooking the pool with a great view of the beach. The condo provided everything we needed for our week stay. The kitchen was big and fully stocked with kitchenware to prepare family meals all week long. Beach was beautiful and clean with easy access. Drinks and food delivered to your beach chair was an added bonus.
Ms.Millie was available to address any needs or requests during our stay.
We will return

We loved our stay at Surfside Resort, Luv it at the beach condo. It was so clean and we had everything we needed. The condo is very nicely decorated. The ocean views were out of this world. It was conveniently located and the beach is just across the street. We would definitely recommend you and your family staying here.

The unit was very spacious for our family with an amazing ocean front view and resort pool. It is very centrally located with easy access to all the beach activities, and the resort is beautiful. Best of all is Millie who owns the unit, she invites you in like family. Thanks Millie!!

July 26, 2014 The place is beautiful. We had such a great time at the beach, The condo was very comfortable and tastefully decorated. We loved everything about the unit and couldn't ask for a nicer and very clean place to spend our vacation. Thanks again,

July 25. 2014
We couldn't have asked for a better home away from home. Millie's 'Luv It at the Beach' unit is a clean, comfortable and nicely decorated condo. We rented both of the connecting units and it worked out well for 2 parents and 3 kids. People are impressed when we show them the photos of our stay. We spent a deal of time on the balcony. There are plenty of tables and chairs so that all of us could be out there. Dinner on the balcony was fun. We appreciated having plenty of towels, all kitchen items, full size coffee maker, toaster and the lovely bottle of wine left for us by the owner. We were very comfortable having 3 bedrooms, 3 baths, a living room and a dining area. You just can't get that kind of room and comfort in a hotel. This resort is very well maintained. The hallways, lobby and elevators are all clean and well taken care of. Same goes for the pool and fitness room. I think the best part of the resort is its close proximity to the beach. In just a few steps we were there. We went para sailing, kayaking, 4 mile walks everyday and enjoyed meals from many of the local restaurants. We would definitely consider returning and renting this condo again

August 10, 2014
Our stay with flawless. The amenities are great and the view is second to none. And Millie even had a bottle of wine delivered to our room! Highly recommended

Created memories at this beautiful condo, September 16, 2014 By Adele Bossaller (St. Louis MO) We rented out the 2 bedroom beautiful condo that has fantastic views of the beach with floor to ceiling windows. Both bedroom have access to the balcony as well as the living room. This place was tastefully decorated and very clean. The kitchen had all the amenities we needed so we made our breakfasts and had BLTs for lunch. There is just a short walk down to the beach as you pass by an outdoor swimming pool. After a day at the beach we would lounge out on the balcony sipping margaritas while listening to the surf. Jazz music is in the background provided by the sound system in the living room. Yes, relaxation at its finest. Thanks to Millie for the bottle of wine upon arriving. We definitely will not put off a vacation due to time/money because nothing can replace the memories that our family created on our vacation

When we all walked in it was amazing. It was like a dream. Each balcony opened up to the view of the gulf coast. The condo had everything you needed. The place was beautifully decorated. You talk about relaxing, every morning we would sit out on the balcony and listen to the waves crashing on the beach. We will be coming back. THE BOZARTHS

Amazing vacation!
May 31, 2014

My family and I decided to take a last-minute vacation to Destin Florida. And I am so glad that we did. And even more glad that I came across this amazing condominium! The views of the ocean were priceless from the family room, kitchen and bedrooms. And the condominium was beautifully decorated. It has a very nice, relaxed beach décor. Everything was extremely clean and well maintained. The owner was such a pleasure to work with, especially since we waited until 3 days before arrival to contact her. She was easily accessible and returned my calls/text immediately. The unit was so easy to check in to... no waiting in line or having to stop at a reality company to sign papers and get keys. We went straight to the room, changed into our swimsuits and hit the beach! Also, It was great not to have to take chairs and umbrellas to the beach. Everything was set up and waiting on us there. I highly recommend this condominium for anyone interested in staying at Miramar Beach! The fun and great food are nearby! My kids loved the pool too. I can't wait to go back and stay there again.

Have been staying in Millie's condo for years because we know that the condo and building are always will kept. Love the view and the interior hallways. Condo is always clean and any problems Millie is just a call/door away. Have looked elsewhere but nothing matches the view, location, and ease to get around Destin for shopping, eating, and golf.

Thank you very much

December 1, 2014

Dear Millie, Thank you so very much for sharing your beautiful condo with us. We used to live on the water when we lived in Chicago and your views brought back lots of special memories. Yours was just the perfect place for us to stay while we were visiting our children in Crestview. Thank you!

Luv it at the Beach is a great condo to rent. Millie is great to work with and always goes above and beyond to make your stay the best. This is the second time we have rented this condo and have been so pleased both times. The three bedrooms work so well for our family and the view from every room is fantastic. I would highly recommend this condo. We had a great vacation and will definitely be back.

Fantastic Stay ! The view is Amazing!
August 8 to August 15, 2105
We absolutely loved our stay at this property and will be returning next year. The lobby is nice and the staff is very accommodating. Once we exited the elevators onto the floor of our room, I was a bit worried as there were no decorations on the walls and it looked older, but as soon as I opened the door to our room all of my cares melted away. The view is the very first thing that you see with the floor to ceiling windows and balcony door. The units were very clean and the decorations are beautiful. We would find something new everyday (our favorite was the "grass skirts" on the beds of the room with two double beds. The master bedroom is huge and the kitchen is extremely well stocked with any utensil we needed. The balcony wraps around, which gave us a view of the pool and bar as well as the beach. All of the rooms in this unit open up to the same balcony. My mom and dad wanted the lockout room because my mom wakes early and wanted to be able to go downstairs without waking anyone. My husband and I were in the master and our son slept on the foldout. My sister, niece and a friend shared the double bedroom. There is plenty of room and you never feel cramped. There are also three bathrooms when you have both units together, which comes in handy. We spent a lot of time sitting at the bar in the kitchen at the end of the day talking about all that we did during the day. The owner of the unit is a dream to deal with. We had no problems during our stay, but Ms. Lusco made it clear that she was available if needed. She even took care of us with a bottle of wine to welcome us. We love Miramar Beach and have been several times. I've lived many places in the U.S. and have visited many of the Caribbean Islands and Miramar Beach meets and even exceeds most of the beaches that I have been on. It was never a matter of if we would return, but now I know that these units are available, and at such a fair price, I hope to continue returning to spend more time at Surfside through Ms. Lusco and her Luv It At the Beach. This vacation connected our family back together and we enjoyed every minute of it. Thank you so much for sharing your property with us.

This is a great location and beautiful condo.
★ ★ ★ ★ ★

This was the perfect condo with lots of room and a great view of the beach. Very clean and well maintained. Owner is very nice and response is very quick. I would recommend this condo to anyone wanting a relaxing and fun vacation. We had our grandsons with us and they loved having a basketball court, heated pool, two hot tubs, and short walk to the beach. This was our second time at this location and will go back as often as we can.
