Week of Paradise

Review submitted: June 29, 2008   Date of arrival: June 21, 2008

We just got back from a wonderful week in Echo Island. Everything was perfect and we would highly recommend renting it to our friends. The first thing when you opened the door to the property, was you can smell the cleanliness and the pictures they provided described the property and location perfectly.
Having the use of the washer and dryer and the beach service were an added bonus for us.
We mainly beached it our week, but did eat at Old Bay Steamer down by the firehouse. Yummy. Also got fresh seafood from our favorite, Sextons and brought it back to fix.
The owners were wonderful in providing a notebook of helpful hints and suggestions, along with providing brochures of local attractions. Our girls did enjoy the "Just Chute Me" parasailing along with some events at "Big Kahauna's.
Thank you again, and we hope to be back to paradise again soon.

Owners response: Dear Missie, Lee and Family,
Thanks so much for your sweet comments about our 5-I at Island Echos! Enjoyed "meeting" you all and want to thank you for being such wonderful guests! You are definitely welcome back anytime and I hope your family will return to our little bit of paradise soon!
Glad you got to sample some of the wonderful local seafood-it is yummy-and the girls got to parasail. Bet the view of the beach was awesome for them from the air! Take care and thanks again!
Amy & Greg

Great times, great condo...

Review submitted: August 10, 2014   Date of arrival: August 2, 2014

We had such a great time at the beach and the condo was perfect. It accommodated our family of 6 with no space issues at all. Everything had recently been updated inside the condo and it was very clean. With just a few steps to the beach, it was the perfect place for us. My wife saw dolphins every morning from the balcony and even a couple of sea turtles.

It was nice that the beach in front of the condo was not crowded and the guy setting up the chairs and umbrellas (Eli) was awesome. We were close enough to a few good restaurants, but we ended up driving to Destin a couple of times as well. Highly recommend Dewey Destin for dinner. Can't wait to get back next year!

Hated to leave!!!

Review submitted: August 27, 2013   Date of arrival: August 10, 2013

What a wonderful week my mom and I spent at Greg and Amy's condo. From the moment you step into the unit, you are feeling relaxed. The bright and colorful decor puts you instantly in a warm and happy mood. The views of the ocean are breathtaking. The condo is equiped with everything you could need, and then some. This was actually one rental that lived up to all the descriptions listed in the posting. The beds were very comfortable and inviting. The unit itself was clean and updated. The beach was not over crowded which made it perfect for long walks. There were many wonderful restaurants nearby, our favorite being The Old Bay Steamer. If you are looking for a clean, fully stocked vaca rental, you will not go wrong with this unit. Amy was a delight to work with and made the process simple and easy. She provides you with all the info you will need including places to visit and places to eat. She puts a lot of thought into making sure her guests feel comfortable and have all the comforts of home.

Thank you Amy and Greg for sharing your piece of heaven with us!!!!!
