We had a great week at this condo. It is beautifully decorated and had everything we needed. The location is great. Even tho it is technically across the street from the beach, there aren't any buildings in front of this complex, so no obstructed view. It's a nice small complex, never had to wait for the elevator or anything. Super nice walking path in front of the complex for morning walks. (VRBO Review)

We have been staying at Miramar beach for several years now and this is by far hands down our favorite property yet!! The condo was immaculate, beautifully decorated and the view is stunning!! Renee was easily accessible and so helpful! The kitchen and bathrooms are especially beautiful and we loved the fact the kitchen had not only a standard coffee pot but also a keurig! We will definitely stay here again! Wish we could have stayed longer!!

The condo was exactly as shown pin the VRBO listing . Upon arrival the door code did not work , but a call to Renee quickly resolved it . The unit was very clean and well stocked . The view of the beach across the road was great . Very easy beach access . The building is pet friendly and many of the renters had small to medium size dogs . The condo would comfortably sleep 6-8 people . We were only two plus our Yorkie. !

We absolutely loved the property. It was so convenient to the beach. I rented a golf cart but it was not needed. We could walk to the beach any time we wanted. The view from the balcony was beautiful. We will be back.

This was a fantastic vacation. Excellent location! We had 3 restaurants within walking distance. The short walk across the street to the beach was amazing. We enjoyed the very clean condo and the ability to have coffee from the balcony and take in the amazing views. We had 7 guests in our party, the 2 older girls 8 & 11 loved the bunk beds. My parents enjoyed the front bedroom and bathroom. My wife and I found the master bedroom and bathroom very comfortable with plenty of room for our 4 year old to sleep on a toddler cot near the master closet. We will defiantly return!

We absolutely loved our stay in Unit 309. Kitchen was well stocked with plenty of silverware, dishes, 2 different styles of coffee pots (k-cup and regular-perfect for my husband and I's different preferences), and just about any utensil you could possibly need. Decor was lovely, kitchen and bathroom upgrades were beautiful! Location was perfect, 1-2 minute walk or 45 second jog :) We did not bring our pets, but love that it is an option. Lots of dogs to ogle at around the Beach retreat property, which our family loved! Highly recommend this unit to anyone traveling with their family, the set up would also be great for 2 couples with a couple small kids. Thank you for such a great stay!

Great location, steps away from private beach. Beautifully decorated, very clean & well appointed kitchen. Lovely views from large balcony. Having access to a pool and hot tub was a plus. We loved being able to bring our dogs! A new roof was being constructed during our stay. The days were a little noisy but that was unavoidable.

We loved our stay at Beach Retreat. Right across from the beach and a lovely view. Our dog felt right at home and loved the balcony. He sat out there and watched the passerby’s all day. Beach service is amazing. Umbrella and chairs provided. Beach is amazing! Pool clean and heated. Great place for our family to stay. We marked this for future visits.

Nicely decorated condo, awesome view of ocean. Picked this condo building because it wasn’t a gargantuan building in the time of covid... beach area for Beach Retreat wasn’t crowded either as some beach areas were... people were social distancing. Had a couple of email questions and managers got back to me in timely fashion

We could not have chosen a better location to stay at on our Destin vacation. Condo was very clean and just like the pictures on the listing. Pool was awesome and beach right across the street. Checking was flawless and communication was effortless through email. Will definitely be staying here again if we come back next year.

My late husband and I stayed at beach retreat 7yrs ago, 2 yrs in a row. We loved it. He passed away in dec. I was his caregiver and had not been on vacation since 2013. I decided to go back to the same place since it’s so accommodating for my dog. There are no words. It was the most perfect vacation I could’ve ever asked for! The condo was so beautiful. I had to call the property manager for 2 things to which she handled immediately. Our view was breathtaking! To wake up every morning staring at the ocean. We enjoyed the balcony as much as the beach! I will always go back to the beach retreat when I return to the gulf. Fantastic!

The location was fantastic. Being on the 3rd floor there was an excellent view of the Gulf and high enough to have minimal road noise. The photos were accurate. The unit was clean. An issue during the stay was addressed and fixed in a timely manner. I would go back again.

We thought the property was awesome. It fit our needs perfectly. We enjoyed the condo layout and it's recent updated decor. The condo is nicely stocked with kitchen utensils and the startup supplies were more than adequate. Loved having the Keurig coffee maker in addition to the drip. The property is appropriately described in the VRBO writeup and pictures. The veranda was spacious with a terrific view. We enjoyed the sliding glass doors onto the patio from both the living and bedroom areas. Seems like there was a pet in every condo in Beach Retreat and the pets and owners all got along fine. We really enjoy the walking areas all around the Miramar Beach area. Had a great visit to Kenny D's and they were extremely pet friendly and good fun. (loved the gumbo)

Beautiful view. Great location. Many good restaurants nearby. Condo was nicely furnished and roomy enough for 6 adults. Large balcony which we loved for viewing the beach and people watching. The only minor issue was the 3rd bedroom. It is quite small with a bunk bed. Ok for small children, but pretty cozy for 2 adults. We would definitely rent again.

Amazing Condo! Gorgeous gulf views. The condo has everything you need. This was our second time staying in one of Renee's condos. Her condos are immaculately clean and beautifully decorated. Comfortable beds. And most importantly for us - pet friendly. We highly recommend any of Renee's condos.

The size of this condo was perfect for our family of 5, including 2 children. Location was perfect - view the beach from the balcony and and simply walk across the street to get there. Management was very responsive and informative. Unit was clean and had all items necessary to make us comfortable for a week. Would definitely rent here again.
