We had such a great time at this wonderful condo. It was clean and very comfortable. My family had so much fun everyday on the beach or in the pool. We loved meeting other guests at the condo and had great cook outs. The only downfall was leaving! We are looking forward to our next trip and will be renting again. Thanks for sharing y'all home Rex and Penny. Highly recommend this vacation home!

Condo was comfortable, weather was nice

We had a good time after our initial mix up of locations was settled. We rented the room in Ft. Walton Beach, but were sent information on a Panama City place. We called Rex and Penny as we sat at the Ft. Walton place, but received no answer with no forwarding number to call. We did not have a room number and were forced to go to the Panama City room after we called several times with no answer. Once we had driven the 65 miles to PC, we settled in , bought groceries, washed all the dishes, and cooked a few meals. That night, around midnight, the original renters for the room showed up. We called Penny to sort things out, but she was very un-professional. She did find a room for the other family, but we were told to vacate and move back to the Ft. Walton room the next morning. After purchasing a large cooler for the food, and packing, we left for FWB. We still had no room number in FWB when we arrived. We called Penny once again and received no answer. After the third call, she answered with the room number, but was again very up-professional offering no apology for the inconvenience. We will not rent from this agency again.

Owner's Response: Yes, I am sorry your trip was disrupted Don. You know Don, there is ALWAYS some responsibility by guests. When you receive your check in information, it is YOUR responsibility to make sure it is correct. I ask that you read it over and let me know if you have questions. Yes, I sent you the wrong info. You have your check-in info 2 to 3 weeks prior to your stay. If you know you are going to Ft Walton Beach, and the check-in is for Panama City Beach, why wouldn't you question that and call me? What would have happened if it was for a different state? Would you just drive there without questioning that? All could have been avoided if you had. I happened to have been visiting my in-laws and I have hardly no cell service there, that is something I can't control. As far as you saying I was unprofessional, I had no choice but to tell you - you were in the wrong place and had to go to Ft. Walton Beach. Again, all this could have been avoided if you had read over the info I sent before your trip like I requested.

Mistakes don't happen very often and I am sorry it disrupted your trip but I hope you enjoyed the Fort Walton area and had a good time.

The area was perfect. Went to Destin a couple times & the traffic there was crazy! Was a very short walk from condo to the beach. Only complaint would be, remote's for TV's did not work. Would definiately recomment this condo/area to family & friends.

A condo in paradise

  • 5 of 5
This condo was great. Rex and Penny were wonderful to work with. We have stayed in several of there places and have been coming back because each place is wonderful, clean, well cared for etc. We especially love the beach and this condo made our vacation. We went to the fish store and bought 6 lbs of shrimp, steamed them up and pigged out! Took some to the beach with us the next day. Snorkeled under the Destin bridge, rented jet ski's, went deep sea fishing, and just played on the beach. We will be back!!!!!!!! Rex and Penny here we come!

Condo was very nice, clean and a short walk to the beach. Complex had nice pool for kids, shower to rinse sand, and outdoor restrooms. Located in a quiet away just minutes from any amenity one would need. Owners were very polite, responsive, and very easy to communicate with.
