One of the toilets ran all the time. The bed definitely needs a new mattress, the pull out sofa needs replaced, it’s BEYOND wore out. Shower head leaks, floor tiles in both bathrooms are loose and crunches when you walk on them. The bedroom window needs blackout curtains because the outside light stays on and it lights up the room. But the view was great and it was clean and stocked. Great location

Location is great. We watched the Wednesday fireworks from the porch. Porch faces the beach. You could hear the crashing of the waves from the 6th floor.
What we don't like is the bed...the sofa bed is better off used as a sofa or sleep on it but don't pull it out as a bed unless you want to sleep on straight up springs. One of the stove burner doesn't work.
Manager response:
Hi, Eugene. Our property manager is discussing the sofa bed with the homeowner, and maintenance has taken care of the burners. Thank you!

Clean and right on the beach. We had an issue with the door code but vacasa had a maintenance person their within 5 mins to fix it. Nothing super luxurious about the condo but was very nice and amazing view. Would highly recommend.
Manager response:
Hayden, thank you for your review. We are glad that you enjoyed your stay with us despite experiencing issues with the lock. We are glad our local team was able to quickly address these concerns and assist in getting you into the home. We value your feedback and appreciate you allowing us to improve for our future guests and are looking forward to hosting you again very soon.

Overall this was a very nice condo. Had a few things wrong but it did not hinder our stay. We loved the ocean view and ocean access was great. We would stay here again.
Felicia H. Jun 2022
All rooms are ocean front. That’s very smart, people go to the ocean for the view. You don’t have to waist time at a desk in the office, you don’t have to keep up with a room card, very nice place to stay. Anything extra you need the cabana boys on the beach will help

Perfect location on the beach. Very quiet. Watched beautiful sunsets from the balcony every night!

Very convenient to everything and the unit was clean.

Only stayed for a weekend friday-sunday. But perfect 1 bedroom condo for my significant other and I, with AMAZING views from the top floor. Cooked 2 dinners while staying there and the kitchen had everything I needed. They could update the couch as it seems a little old and the bed was a little hard but that still doesn't sway me away from leaving 5 stars! Would definitely stay again!

Enjoyed our stay. Clean and comfortable apartment.

Nice condo, right on the beach.
Lacee H. Aug 2021
We loved the location of this condo we got to walk to stewby's and watch the fireworks from the pier on the balcony. The view was great . You could see up and down the beach. The unit also came with beach service so you don't have to bring 2 beach chairs and an umbrella.
Someone from vacasa did call and check on us the day after we came and the day before we left which we greatly appreciated.
Some of the items in this condo could use some updating. We couldn't find cookie sheets and the non stick skillets were pretty worn out. The bed is a firm spring coil mattress. I also would recommend putting black out curtains in the bedroom because of the lights from the outside walkway.
Pattie W. Aug 2021
Vacasa has great communication and response time. The condo was clean and ready on time. Would definitely rent from Vacasa again. The condo does need some finishing touches. Definitely, needs a better couch, the tile in the master bathroom has separated from the floor and makes a crunching sound when you walk on it. Definitely needs a cookie sheet or 2. Definitely needs 2 newer ceiling fans. The Italy decor was definitely out of place at the beach. Everything worked great and great location.
Manager response:
We are pleased to hear you enjoyed your stay! Thank you for taking the time to share your feedback with us. We will be sure to pass your suggestions along to our local manager who will work with our homeowner to make necessary upgrades. We look forward to hosting you again!

We enjoyed our stay here. Always some good and bad everywhere but nothing that would prevent me from staying here again. The bed was a little hard, the cooking utensils are a little old and lacking, but other than those, no real complaints. The walls were recently painted a light grey and have been updated from the photos listed. Decor is nice, unit was comfortable and has a great location on the beach and in the area. Parking was easy and convenient with no issues there. I would recommend this unit and I would stay again.
Cassie G. Jul 2021
The condo and stay was very nice and put together. The only downsides to the condo was that the balcony which had amazing views, flooded easily bc there was no where for the water to drain so for the last 4 days of our stay the balcony had a large puddle of water on it and was frustrating for us. Everything else though was fantastic and would recommend this place to anyone
Richard C. Jul 2021
Great view and enjoyed our stay.
Makell B. Apr 2021
We loved being right on the beach and the convenience of having so many restaurants/activities close by. It is a crowded, touristy area, but plenty of fun.

The condo had a couple of repairs that need to be taken care of was pretty basic, but offered what we needed and, in exchange for the view, was totally worth it.
Ryan B. Oct 2020
My wife and our three sons (ages 9, 9, and 6) enjoyed 5 nights in this unit. We loved the view from the balcony, the pool, and of course, being able to walk right out onto the beautiful beach (with beach service included!) The condo is conveniently located to plenty of area restaurants and attractions (our boys loved fishing from the nearby pier) and it's an easy drive over to Destin for more. It was just right for our family.

The only thing I'd advise is that the pullout couch was fine for our six-year-old, but would have been uncomfortable for an older kid or adult.

Wowed by...
Clean rooms upon arrival; Seamless check-in & checkout; Pointed instructions from Vacasa before arrival, during stay and departure; View of the gulf (front) from 7th (top) floor; Beach service inclusion in the rental; In-Unit Washer & Dryer; Surplus supplies of towels & toiletries; <30 second wait for elevators; Media content on TV; Gulf in itself 😊

Less impressed by…
Sunk living room sofa / pull out bed – wo this, unit can only sleep 4; Rationed kitchen utensils – Good for reheating, short for cooking ; Worn out ceiling fan in the living room – only operates in lowest speed wo screech; Only 2 basic chairs in the balcony – given it is a gulf facing unit, visitors could use few more chairs to seat a family.

All said, we will definitely look forward to renting this unit, next time.
Manager response:
Thank you for your review, Deepak. The owner has been provided your list of concerns for the unit so they can consider them for improvement. We hope to see you again!
Sherry B. Sep 2020
As soon as we opened the door, we noticed a terrible smell. We immediately called maintenance because TV’s were not working plus ask that someone come back to clean the bathroom. There was one old rusty chair on the balcony & 1 very small table. Two newer chairs were provided the next day so we could sit on balcony. There was 1 very old sofa & an old rocker with an ottoman which had sand all over it. The mattress on the bed was awful which resulted in terrible sleep. I would never stay here again. This condo is old & needs updating & needs a deep cleaning. The only good thing about this condo was the nice view.
Manager response:
Hi Sherry, thank you for staying with us. We are happy to hear you enjoyed the view! We're sorry for any disappointment you experienced during your stay. We have followed up with our housekeeping team and maintenance to ensure future cleans will be completed to our high standards. We are sorry to hear that the bed was not well-suited to your sleeping preference. I have forwarded your feedback to the local staff so they can work to improve the house for future guests. We hope to host you again for a more enjoyable stay!

Spent one night here while driving to New Orleans. Very clean, modern, tastefully decorated and a beautiful view. We will definitely be back!
Shannon M. Jun 2020
Good location and the quick beach access is great
Ryan P. Jun 2020
We have two minor complaints. It is room 614, not 2614. 2614 doesn’t exist which made it difficult to locate. Also, the gate/bathroom code was incorrect. They gave us a new code at the office. Other than that, it is on par with the other places we’ve stayed in the Destin/Fort Walton area.
Manager response:
Hi, Ryan! Thank you for taking the time to tell us about your stay. We would like to sincerely apologize for the miscommunication in the directions: the '2' was meant to direct you to the second building. We have verified all codes are correct going out to our guests. We hope to see you again!
