We had a great time at Beach Resort. The rates were reasonable, location was great. We enjoyed the convenience of the beach chair set up that was included in our rental.
We will definitely return to Beach Resort 402.

This unit was spotless! The entire unit has been updated and the decor is very tasteful and relaxing. Great furnishings and fully stocked with everything one may need for a few days or a week! There is a partial view of the Gulf, which we enjoyed immensely. We have stayed in this complex several times and enjoy the peacefulness, especially in the off season, the proximity to all our favorite restaurants, and the fantastic pool. It is so nice to have the buffer of the pool for the road noise. Since we like to walk for exercise, the short walk to the beach access is no problem for us. This is by far the best unit at Beach Resort, in my opinion, and we will most certainly rent this unit again.

We had a great time in Destin Florida despite the on and off rain. The condo was nice and spacious but the beds were not very comfortable at all. It would have been nice if the room with the bunk beds had an actual door on it. The pool is really nice and it is very close to the beach. The one annoying thing about the beach is actually getting to the beach it's difficult to find a public entrance to the beach. I would recommend this place! Read more

The condo was decent but the bedroom carpet was very filthy. It needed a deep cleaning. Had to wear shoes to step on it. The bedroom felt like a regular hotel room by they way it looked and the way it was kept.
I'm very surprised by this because Southern Resorts has given me very good service and condos in the past.
Southern Resorts personnel provided great service. However, I believe that every rental should be inspected personally. I don't think this one was.
I will continue to rent from Southern Resorts but I definitely won't stay at this condo again.

We had a great time watching the waves.

Our condo was clean, well-equipped and the location was ideal. We spent many hours watching the waves come in on the beach across the road.
The furniture in the living room was fine but could have been more comfortable.

The only complaint I have is that there was no comforter or bedspread on the bed in the master bedroom and housekeeping never brought one even after I called and asked for one. Read more
Response from Southern Vacation Rentals - 03/26/2011
Thank you for the review. We are happy to hear you had a great time in Destin. I sincerely apologize about the missing beadspread. The beadspread was being laundered and is now clean and back on the bed where it belongs.

We love Destin and Beach Resort #402...this is our 2nd time staying at Beach Resort and we love it! Great pool and very easy access to the beach! We will definitely be back to stay here again!!

This was our first time staying at Beach Resort and we loved it!! The condo was beautiful and had everything we needed. We loved our balcony and the view it had. I had read other reviews of how the beach was a little incovenience because of the distant walk..well we didn't mind it wasn't really a long walk. We will definitely stay at Beach Resort again!

A magnificent condo!
Left on 04/15/2010 for a stay in March 2010 | catlover
Our stay at the Beach Resort was fabulous! The condo itself was beautiful, very spacious, and had everything one could possibly need right there in it. Our only complaint would be that we had to walk down the street to access the Beach. There is no direct access right across from the condo. Once we got used to walking down the street aways, it was not a big deal, but took some getting used to. The pool was great and love that the upper section was heated. Again, the condo itself was awesome! Very clean, well equipped and big.

The unit was very nice and spacious for a one bedroom and very nicely
decorated. The only thing I would recommend is that the owner change the
area rug in the sitting area to a better sisel rug without the cushion
underneath with was separate from the rug/carpet piece and looked a little
sloppy. The pool area is beautiful and maintained very nicely. I would definitely

Very clean, good location and nice condo. Very large for a one bedroom
condo. Reasonably priced.
Very nice building and room (with few issues), enjoyed the pool
Left on 09/16/2009 for a stay in September 2009 | EricandJoAnna
We're thankful for this chance to give you some feedback on our stay. We travel often and found the building design and pool layout to be very nice and the angle of the facility enable the pleasant breeze to flow thru the pool area daily.
Room was very clean and well stocked with what we needed. We had some minor issues with coffee pot and one toilet but your staff was very quick to fix them...to our surprise! (Thanks Jason....sorry we didn't get a chance to 'tiddy up' our bedroom before your visit).
1. We did however have a significant problem with the comfort of the master bed (comfort being one of the things we look forward to in our vacations), I know its an expense but a soft/plush pillow top bed would make this unit the attraction we'd come back for. Otherwise, we would have to try another unit.
2. We thought the pool grills could have been a little more upscale: maybe two gas grills
3. The elevators have a srange odor of oil...either maybe improve ventilation or find the source.
4. Pool area was great...nice atmosphere and fun layout. Fun for adults and kids of ALL ages.
5. The location was great with several resturants withing walking distance or a short drive. Loved AJ's.
6. You office staff was very friendly and genuinely concerned to see to it that our minor concerns were fixed right away. Thanks!
In summary, We will continue to book through Southern Resorts but will pass on recommending this particular room due to the bed....we'll make sure we ask more about the bed features next time.
We appreciate you taking the time to review your stay with Southern Resorts. We value our guest opinions and I thank you for your honesty. I apologize for the discomfort of the bedding and we are looking into replacements. I have notified the homeowners association about the grills and the elevators and will ensure those items get taken care of. It sounds like your family enjoyed the vacation and Southern Resorts looks forward to having you back as our guest soon.

For the most part we liked this unit. The patio and view were quite nice, and the pool area is great. However, the beach access was rather far--the property is advertised as being across the street from the beach, which it is; however, you can't access the beach from right across the beach (there are houses and then deeded beach property that is off limits across the street). You need to walk about 2 blocks east before you can access the beach. With little kids and a lot of gear, it takes awhile. Also, the top bunk is built very close to the ceiling. My child (age 7) often hit his head when he got up--he could not sit up on the top bunk--there was not enough room. It would be uncomfortable for an older child. Also, the bottom bunk is quite high--it would be a big drop for a small child, if he or she fell out of bed--and the floor is tile, so it could be a bit dangerous if a child fell out of the bed.
Beach Resort = Fun

Great condo! Newer building with great pools, excellent location away from the crowds and high rises. Wish we could have parked in the garage underneath but we didn't have a pass? Southern Resorts was great..although we didn't have a instruction book in our condo, thus we did not have a pool code or beach access code and had to call and get the info. But overall a very nice place - not crowded and beautiful view!
My family simply loves staying at The Beach Resort!

While I found #402 to be a little less clean than I would like (very dusty and the tile was not mopped well), I would still recommend it to friends and family. This is the third time that my family has stayed at a condo at the Beach Resort and we simply love the place. The pool is awesome and no matter how many people are there it simply never seems crowded. I would love for the beach entrance to be closer to the complex; especially if you are carrying alot of stuff. Thanks for a great vacation!
Love the view

Even though the Beach Resort is across the road from the beach it still has many perks. My children loved the pool. It was a short walk to get to the beach. It also was patroled on a regular basis by poliemen for our safety. Our condo # 402 had everything that we could ask for! We will definately be staying again!
