Beautiful Condo-Spectacular Views-Free Beach Service

Exceptional! 5/5 -
(18 traveler reviews)


Property Details

Updated: Nov 15, 2016
Condo, 3 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, 8 Sleeps

If you want your vacation condo to be beautiful, comfortable, be

within feet of the beach and have breathtaking views, you don't have

to look any further.

Our three bedroom, three full bath professionally decorated condo at

the Empress has all that and more. A reserved garage parking place

to keep your car cool in the summer and you dry if it should rain is

just the beginning. The property is gated and entry into the condo

is by keyless entry eliminating the worry of keeping track of keys.

A fully equipped kitchen and laundry may not be at the top of your

list of vacation requirements, but you will find them nice to have.

All baths are tiled and have double vanities. The large master bath

has a whirlpool tub and roomy walk-in shower. The other two baths

have either a tub/shower combination or walk-in shower.

The bedrooms are luxurious, two with king size beds and the third

has a double. All have televisions and DVD players. The master and

king guest room have access to the large tiled balcony overlooking

the emerald waters of the gulf. The other guest room has a wall of

windows overlooking the pool, lake and golf course.

There are two separate living areas to provide space for everyone to

do what they like best. The living area in the rear has seating for

7 to 10 people and a television with surround sound and a DVD

player. It walks out to the large tiled balcony which also

overlooks the pool, lake and golf course.

The living area in the front has access to the large tiled balcony

overlooking the gulf. There is seating for four or more to enjoy

conversation, reading, or just looking at the view.

Outside the condo is a pool, whirlpool, and fitness room. And then

of course, there is the beach, just feet away with a walkover at the

edge of the property so you don't even have to cross the street.

The Empress is within a couple miles of great shopping at either the

new Destin Commons or Silver Sands Outlet Mall. Many outstanding

restaurants are nearby with something for everyone.

If you need to stay in touch while you are on vacation, there is a

high speed internet connection and a large desk.

There are many condos to rent up and down the beach, but few with

more to offer than #803 at the Empress. Come and stay for a week,

or more, and go home renewed, with great memories to last until you

can return.

Cincinnati, Ohio

The best condo EVER!

  • 5 of 5

My husband, son, daughter and I drove in from Cincinnati for our first vacation in Destin. We were so excited, and we certainly were not disappointed with this condo. It was soooo comfortable, and well furnished. We needed not one extra thing. The TV's and comfortable furniture, the great beds and roomy bathrooms and closets. The beautiful views from the balconies, the elevator stopping at the door, the pool we had to ourselves most evenings, the beach chair and umbrella set up, the indoor parking space, right across the street from the beach.... you just can't ask for more. Such a beautiful condo and beach! We will certainly come back again, and I would't dream of staying anywhere else. Memorie and Stan were so helpful with everything. It was a truly wonderful vacation and we made some great memories. Thank you for sharing your beautiful home with us.

There were so many things we liked about this condo but here are the things we liked the most...the view from the large balcony facing the gulf, the large balcony facing the lake, nicely decorated, each bedroom had a great view, the beach service, no wait on elevator and I mean "no wait", large condo with great floor plan, beds were very comfortable, and a great location. I highly recommend this condo!

Wonderful Vacation Spot

  • 5 of 5

This was our first family vaction to Destin and this condo was perfect. The location was great. We had 2 3 year olds and a 9 month old and the seperate living areas worked very well for us. I loved that the elevator stopped right at our door. The chair rental that was included was wonderful. We are already planning our trip for next year. We will definalty book this condo again.

The condo is spectacular!!! This is the 3rd year I have stayed in the condo and I can never get enough of it. The 2 friends I travelled with also stayed last year and they didn't want to try any other place either. The accomodations are wonderful and so comfortable. We could be in different parts of the condo reading, watching tv or just napping and not know the others were around. It was so relaxing and we had everything we needed. The view is breathtaking!!!!! Even though the weather wasn't so great and the water had a lot of seaweed, we enjoyed being in the condo on the front deck and watching the storms roll in from the ocean and just relaxing in the quiet. The free beach umbrella and chairs were a nice perk as well. The pool was a nice place to cool off and the view from the back of the condo is just as nice as the view from the front!!!! We are already talking about going back again for another girls week next year!!! The owners are great to work with and are so friendly. Thanks again for another great girls week in your beautiful condo!!!!!

Awesome condo

  • 5 of 5

Been vacationing in Destin for 10 years and this is the best condo we've stayed in. It's luxurious, spacious, clean and has awesome views on both balconies.

The lazy susan in the middle of the kitchen table made family dinners so convient.

Really enjoyed the beach chair set up daily that Memorie offers.

Liked how you were walking distance to shops and restaurants.

Keyless entry is a plus, no need to keep track of keys.

The pool and hot tub was nice by the lake didn't feel like you were in the parking lot with all those palm trees.

This was the first time I rented by owner, Memorie was wonderful to work with.

We found our home away from home in paradise.

Thanks Memorie for sharing your condo!

Fabulous Condo

  • 5 of 5

My family and I just returned from a week's vacation at this wonderful condo on the beach in Destin FL.

Since the beginning of searching for a place to stay, booking the condo and many questions along the way, Memorie has been more than enjoyable to work with. She has always returned my emails promptly and with great kindness.

This condo is wonderful. We enjoyed this gated condo community, especially having our own parking spot in the garage, which is just steps from the elevator. The proximity of everything was really nice.

I personally took advantage of the exercise room at the Empress and thought it was very nice that they offered that. The pool was quiet and relaxing and we enjoyed the setting of it back by the water.

The view that this 8th floor condo offered of the Gulf of Mexico was superb. The water and beach here are absolutely stunning. Sand like powdered sugar, bright clear blue water and a clean beach.

The chair service that Memorie offers with the condo rental was fantastic. We enjoyed having our chairs and umbrella set up for us every morning.

All 3 bedrooms and bathrooms are really functional and all have big windows with great views. And we love the two living rooms that this condo offers as well. Plenty of room for everyone to spread out and relax inside. The round dining room table is a great for family meals. Really liked that better than a rectangle table.

The furnishings in this condo are wonderful, décor is tasteful and we really felt at home here. We are already planning to come back in 2014 for another vacation.

Thank you Memorie for allowing us to enjoy your piece of paradise!
