Destin vacation condos? Help!!

I ask the OT. Been looking up and down VRBO. We want destin. 3BR condo. July. 4-5 day stay the week AFTER July 4th.

I can't find shite. Everything is either OT Baller penthouse condos or only rent for 7 days.

Any other sites I should look at? Local real estate rental agents who handle rental properties.

BTW I am 40 so no issues with the under 25 year old concerns.

Used Crye Leike Realty once or twice a few years ago. The rental came with a free round of golf per day at Sandestin.

My brothers in-laws were staying in a nice place in Destin right about 200 yards from the beach. The problem was is was on the ninth floor, and when the kids went out onto the balcony, I felt like throwing up.

re: Destin vacation condos? Help!!
In my limited experience looking the past few years, most condos are 7 day rentals.

Some have a 3-night minimum, but they're really hard to find.

If I'm only going to the beach for a few days, I just book a hotel. I don't need a kitchen for 3 nights.
Hilton Sandestin Golf Resort and Spa is nice.

How fancy do you need? Just taking a getaway trip and need a place to sleep or want a bunch of extras?

Four Points Sheraton is clean/nice rooms, but it doesn't have the pool and bar and stuff. It's just clean hotel rooms to sleep in with beach chairs on the beach. We did it for Spring Break a few years ago and got rooms next to one another on the bottom floor. We were able to go back and forth between the rooms when need be via the outdoor patios/sliding doors so we never had to go into the hotel area.

Priceline Name Your Own Price and get that thing for cheap.

I did Ramada in Destin two summers ago. It's an older hotel and certainly not fancy. But it was a VERY good price and the pool is okay.

Wanted further east than Sandestin. And already looked at the same resort. Only saw week long rentals or were unavailable for our dates.

I'm thinking that cheap priceline shite isn't going to work for 4th of July.

I agree that the Ramada would be fine. We stayed at Destin West once and they let you use the Ramada property. Pretty nice swim up bar, etc.

^ I assumed that meant the next week. Like, the 4th is a Thursday.. so anytime after that Sunday. I may have interpreted it wrong though.

Although you're right.. Priceline tends to be difficult even remotely NEAR a peak time.

Holidayisle.net


I love staying at Holiday Isle Surf and Raquet Club. Great beach. Condos can be dated but you have to pick right. Love the tennis and the beach is beautiful. Right down the road from Louisiana Lagniappe and grocery. Lots of options.
