Our stay at this unit was wonderful. We have stayed in other units at this property before and this one may be our favorite! The guest bedroom was perfect for two of our sons while the master was big enough to also place a full size crib, a rental, as suggested by the hosts. Everything was very clean and I just loved the sheets and comforter in the master. Thanks for a great week! (VRBO Review)

Thanks so much for letting us stay at your 12th floor condo! Really enjoyed our stay at 1203 Leeward Key! Condo was clean and Amazing with magnificent views of the gulf. As soon as you open the door you see the gulf. The condo was more than adequately equipped with everything we needed to have a wonderful vacation! Comfortable beds and furniture, 2 pools to choose from and the beach right across the street! 2 great restaurants with in walking distance, Kenny D's right next door and Captain Dave's right across the street.

★ ★ ★ ★ ★ This property was lovely and as advertised. The beach was close enough for my elderly mom to walk to and the area was less busy than the heart of Destin -- perfect for what we needed. Communication with the owners was easy and responses were quick. This is where we'll stay when we come back to the Destin area!

We are so glad we found this rental. It was the perfect stay for our family of two adults, 1 tween, and 1 elementary-age child. The pictures on the listing are super accurate. The condo was spotless upon check-in. Beds were comfy. Towels were plentiful and the kitchen was well stocked. The beach chair process was easy and a great addition to the booking. The only thing I believe future renters should be aware of is the fact that even on the 12th floor the road noise travels, ESPECIALLY on karaoke night at the beach bar next door. It wasn’t a problem for us and it didn’t affect my rating, but you’ll want to be prepared with a noise machine if you have little ones or are a light sleeper. We are already trying to figure out a return trip!

This property is fantastic. Since you are up on the 12th floor you have a perfect view of the beach and ocean. The condo was very clean and well maintained. The kitchen was also well stocked with pots, pans, etc. so we were able to cook a few nights which was nice. The only issue we had was the combination to the door provided wasn’t correct so we weren’t able to get into the condo at first. But we called the listed number and they got us a new code within 10 minutes. Would definitely stay here again!

Dreamy condo right across from the beach. I thought the street below might be kind of noisy but it wasn’t, all you could hear were the waves. It was so relaxing and wonderful! Also immaculately clean. Great space to come with some friends. We will be back for sure!

We have visited Destin for many years now but this was the first time using this condo. Excellent experience. Unit was very clean and ready for on time check in. Located within walking distance of several great restaurants. Beach chair rental service was outstanding. A great experience for our whole family. Would for sure stay here again and recommend to anyone.

First time renting through these folks but have stayed at Leeward Key for about 20+ years. I have no complaints; the condo was beautiful and location was perfect. Check In and Out process was easy and email contacts were friendly. Having a pool directly on the beach simply cannot be beat. Will be back!

This was a great spot - super convenient, and literally right across the street from the beach. Loved being on the 12th floor facing the beach - fantastic views! The condo was very comfortable. Agree with other reviewers that the kitchen was well appointed - they even had muffin tins, a cheese grater, and a blender (I had brought my own in anticipation that these would not be available). The beach service that is included does make things very easy, and my daughter especially enjoyed both pools. Decided we liked the one behind the building better, as there were fewer people and the pool is larger. Owner is very clear about what's included and what you should bring: beach towels, spare TP, for example. Instructions are provided for pretty much everything! The internet went out twice while we were there, each time for about three hours -- I mention this only if you're aiming to work remotely, as you'll want to make sure your hotspot works. Hopefully everyone is coming here to close laptops and enjoy. The water and the beach are just beautiful!

This property was the perfect location for our family who are not big into all the commercialism. There are a few restaurants within walking distance and the regular stores are only a 10 min drive. The view is amazing and the property has its own private beach, pool and pool on the beach. I definitely would recommend this place it was very clean, modern and safe.

Just finished a week at 1203 Leeward Key. My family and I had a great time. It’s a very convenient location. Easy walk to the beach. Beach service was a plus having a home base. My kids loved the pool in the back as it was quiet and they could have fun without worry. Would come back for sure.

We had a wonderful stay at Leeward Key. The place was just as advertised and very clean. This was our first vacation since the pandemic began, and we were so pleased with the experience. Beautiful view of the beach from the condo, and took less than 5 minutes to get on the beach. We always arrived early enough to have a pair of chairs and umbrella ready for us. The pools at Leeward Key were clean and not too crowded. Renee was very responsive to our concerns. We will definitely be back!

We really enjoyed our time at this property! It had a wonderful view of the beach and was fully stocked. The shower head in the master bath is no joke and felt more like a fire hose. It would have been nice if you could adjust that and if the jets worked on the tub. Overall it was still a great place and we would be happy to stay there again! I also wanted to acknowledge the owners were very great to work with and came over immediately to drop off more wrist bands when we realized they had not been left by the previous renters.

All I can say is Wow! From beginning to end my stay was perfect. Check in is as easy as going home, you just get there and go on up and walk in the door. I always had luggage carts when I needed them both for unloading luggage, groceries and shopping excursions. You can really load those up and they glide almost effortlessly. My condo was really decorated stylishly and it was spotless. Considering this was a pet friendly condo there was no pet hair anywhere. The view was really stunning! Whether you were relaxing in the living room, on the balcony or lying in bed, beautiful aquamarine just filled the room. The master bed was very comfortable and the linens clean and coordinated and was everything in the condo. Nice little coffee pot made good coffee, all appliances upper grade, everything I needed to cook alittle was in the kitchen, and all my favorite restaurants in walking distance. You don't even have to get back on 98 to go to the grocery if you don't want to. Side streets take you right into the Publix parking lot. There were bikes to use although I didn't get to ride this trip, but I did utilize the sidewalks in the area and free beach chairs. The manager is always available to answer questions promptly. You get an exquisite experience at Leeward Key and my senses were overwhelmed. Thank you so much for a great week!

We would definitely stay here again!

The two beach chairs daily was a bonus. I have zero complaints and will return. The property owners are quick to reply to your questions. Check in is easy. The master bedroom is fabulous with the best view of the beach to wake up to each day. Comfortable beds. Extremely happy with our choice to stay here. So thankful that we were able to bring our dog with us.

First impression on walking inn front door WOW !!!! Nice, clean and the view was amazing. No hassle check inn, clean property, close to restaurants, ( don’t eat crab trap ) lol ocean and beach clean and clear, beach chair service was awesome ( John is great ) I really can’t say enough good things about this area and condo. Love it and will be back !! Only down side. I like to work out and the exercise equipment needed updating. Especially after eating a lot of seafood and half price drinks for a whole week. Thank you so much

Date of arrival July 7, 2018
We arrived and were able to immediately access the condo with the code provided. As soon as we entered we were treated to an amazing view of the Gulf through the living area and balcony. The updated unit was quiet and had everything we needed for our one-week stay with 4 adults. The beach is literally across the street and took only 2 minutes to go from the condo lobby to the sand. Crossing the street was no problem, even for families with small children seeing as traffic on Scenic Gulf Dr moves rather slowly and stops for people crossing in the crosswalk in front of the building. Beach chairs and umbrellas were provided daily and the pool (overlooking the beach) was always crystal clear. The location is perfect. Close to restaurants, shopping and grocery stores and literally minutes from the more "touristy" attractions of Destin. Traffic on 98 is heavy due to construction and tourist season, but manageable if you time your running around outside of rush hour (you're on vacation, so what's "rush hour?"). We travel quite a bit and are very selective when it comes to our accommodations. We loved Leeward Key and will most definitely return.

Lovely updated condo, high ceiling makes it very open & spacious. Kitchen had everything we needed, used the blender to make fresh salsa! Nice coffee maker to make our morning pot or kcup side option. Master bedroom mattress was good but squeaky. Gorgeous gulf view!! Beach service included 2 chairs & umbrella. Only downside is they set them all up VERY close together so hope to enjoy the company of other vacationing families as they will be sitting inches from you. The water was crystal clear & we spent most of our beach time floating in the ocean. We didn’t use the pool but it did have a great view of the ocean too. We’ve vacationed in Destin/Miramar 3-4 times staying in diff condos each time. This condo was by far our FAVORITE!! Keep up the good work & GREAT service!! Thanks for a wonderful rental experience:)

my fiance and i were here for one week for a friends wedding. we loved the view instantly, nothing compares :) the place was gorgeous, decorated well, not too "old" looking :P condo was clean and the AC worked great the whole time. really convenient that there is a tv in each room as well as the living room. very good internet connection, the kitchen was well equipped w/utensils, measuring cups, pots and pans, etc. honestly the photos dont do it justice in my opinion. within walking distance to pompano joes, studio by the sea painting. theres a burger joint right outside the condo building. this is one of the few places that has a pool on the beach side which is amazing, i took several mignight cat naps out on a pool chair with the waves in the background. obviously we are very sad to have to leave tomorrow :( we virtually had no problems here :) and will try to return next summer :)

Thank you so much. You might enjoy riding bikes along Scenic Gulf Drive next time too. The neighborhood feel of the community is just great and to have a fabulous view is even better.

There is not one thing I could say negatively about this property or the surrounding areas. Everything in the condo was exactly as described and then more. We had plenty of space and absolutely could not get over the view. From the balcony we could enjoy both sunrise and sunset views! The beach service was an added bonus that we happily enjoyed daily. We will definitely return to this exact property for our next trip. Within walking distance to a few restaurants and other fantastic amenities only a short drive away. It couldn't have been a more perfect setting for our first of many trips to the Gulf!
