About the property

Condo, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, 6 Sleeps

After viewing over 50 properties for sale in Destin my sister,

Mitzi, and I (Lisa) were sold on SURFSIDE! We were finally realizing

a long-time dream and buying a Destin vacation home. And Surfside stood

out from the rest...we loved the private sky bridge over Scenic Gulf

Drive (No fighting traffic) and the layout of the units. The

bedroom/bathroom suites were separated by the fully equipped

kitchen, living room and dining room. We'd seen so many 'shotgun' style

units that offered little to no privacy!

The unit featured in this ad is our second Surfside condo. This 5th floor unit has sliding glass doors in both bedrooms,

kitchen and living room offering access to the over 20 foot long balcony. And as you can imagine, the view from the 5th floor is SPECTACULAR! Not only can you see the full size heated pool, kiddie

pool, and skywalk but you can also see that famous emerald green gulf! Please take a peek at the pictures taken from the balcony

We can accommodate up to 6 with a king size bed in the huge master

suite, full size bed in the second bedroom, and pull-out queen size

couch in the living room. The master bath has a great tiled shower, closet with washer and dryer, and a double-sink vanity. The second bath also has a

shower. Watch for the surprise night light in both baths when you enter the room! The kitchen has Corian counter tops, oak cabinetry and sleek black appliances.

For inside entertainment, there are 2 flat screens TVs with DVD players (living room and master bedroom), cable

and a CD stereo system. There is a cozy breakfast area off the kitchen that seats four and a great dining room set surrounded by tastefully mirrored walls that also seats 4.

Latest update: New cabinets, countertops, sinks and faceuts in both baths!

We know you'll love staying in either of our Surfside homes.

Great location, close to the beach!

  • 5 of 5

Great condo. A lot closer to the beach than I thought the pictures showed. Loved listening to the ocean while we slept. Has a great view from every room. Balcony was great to sit outside and eat. Condo had everything we needed.

Beyond expectations

  • 5 of 5

This was one of the rare occasions that we got more than we expected. The condo was well decorated, spacious and well worth the money. The resort itself was nice, everything was clean. It was also located right across the road from the beach (connected by a sky bridge). Mrs Lisa was very easy to deal with as well. We would definitely rent again.

Beautiful well maintained condo & property!

  • 5 of 5

I like to start by saying, it's been on a very rare occasion that I've left a review for somewhere I've stayed or eaten, my schedule is way too busy. But I will say, after staying here at the Surfside Sister's condo more than once, it compels me to leave a positive review. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Condo. It's always well maintained, clean, and up to date!! Lisa has consistently made it easy to rent from her, and we have been staying at the Surfside Sister's properties for a number of years. The location of the condo is perfect and the view, which you can see from the photo, is amazing! The property is located close to shopping, grocery store, great restaurants (excellent food, sushi, & view at the Royal Palms restaurant onsite), and a beautiful section of beach in the Destin area. My wife and I love it here, and we will definitely be back! Thanks for a great stay!

Amazing! Much more than I expected!!

  • 5 of 5

It's not often in this day and time that you get more than you bargained for. But our stay in Lisa's Surfside unit was exactly that. Wonderfully clean, bright, airy condo with a spectacular view of the gulf. Whole building was very well kept and decorated. You can't go wrong here. We'll be back..often. Thanks again Lisa for all your help.

Diamond In The Rough

  • 5 of 5

HaHa...should probably not have said rough; all I mean by that is the resort itself is a little older, but very well-kept. This condo just really stood out, because it was so nice! I love the way it was decorated; The layout is excellent; not the standard hallway/bunks/kitchen/bedroom. It was very clean, and the kitchen was awesome with what seemed to be very "modern" updated appliances. There were four of us, and Plenty of space. A special touch in my opinion was the kitchen knives that were actually sharp! This may sound trivial, but I've stayed in condos before in which you were lucky to find a knife and if I did, it would be anything but sharp. The icemaker worked, everything worked (I've stayed where certain things did not). Excellent balcony with plenty of space, and excellent view. My only issue which has nothing to do with the condo itself, was the wait on the elevators. When we first got there, there was a very long line and we waiting half an hour. The pool area was very nice; tiki bar was cool; they had karaoke one night which was awesome! We didn't get to try Rick's Crab Trap (restaurant within the resort), so can't comment on it. I would highly recommend this condo to anyone. Lisa was very easy and efficient to work with as well, responding to all my questions. Thank you Lisa for sharing your wonderful condo with us and we hope to return!

We had a great time here. Condo was very comfortable, homey, nicely decorated, had everything you could possibly want, very clean. Had a great view from almost every room. Lisa was great to work with. We will hopefully have the opportunity for a return visit. Thanks Lisa!!!
