Went the extra steps...    Sep 07, 2019

We had the best vacation thanks to Becky and Rod! Not only was the condo amazing and there wasn’t anything more we could of asked for, they went those extra steps to make sure that we were able to enjoy the many different activities by having discounts through various vendors throughout Destin. If we had any questions about anything Becky was so helpful and quick to answer! We met so many great people here and will be back! Actually already looking at booking next year! Thank you again Becky and Rod!!

Becky Rose's reply:

Tracy & Kyle, thank you so much for your kind words!! We love it when our friends go down and have a fabulous time!! We look forward to your next trip!!

Sisters Reunion    Aug 31, 2019

Everything is sparkling clean inside and out! Convenient and quiet location. We’ve stayed many places within the US and outside the US. We plan on staying here again. The hosts thought of everything needed plus extras to make our stay very comfortable!

Krisi Chuprevich

Close to the Beach!!    Aug 22, 2019

This condo is very close the the beach. Although it is listed as a 2 bedroom this condo has 4 sleeping areas. Big Master with king bed, big Guest room with queen bed, another Bunk room with bunk beds, and a pull-out couch in the living space. Full kitchen and washer/dryer made a week of vacation easy for my family. My children’s favorite part (besides the beach) was the 3 pools open late. Rules allow for swimming in pools until 10pm in case you are not thoroughly exhausted. Quite hours were honored as well.

Boyd & Jennifer Warner

Enjoyed our stay    Aug 03, 2019

My wife and I have 3 grown children who are all married and also have 7 grandchildren(soon to be 8). We rented 2 condos and my wife, oldest son and his family(7) stayed in Becky & Rods condo. It was very nice, comfortable and warm. We absolutely enjoyed our stay and Becky was very helpful when I had questions or needed something. I would definitely recommend anyone, single person, couple or family to book your vacation with them!

Family Vacation    Jul 13, 2019

Rod and Becky
We can't thank you enough for allowing our family to use your condo for our vacation!!! It was a wonderful trip, everything was so clean and beautifully decorated, we could not have asked for a more perfect place to stay! We can't wait to come back next year and many more years to come! Our only complaint...the week went way too fast!! 
Thanks Again!!!

So many memories!!    Jun 22, 2019

This place was absolutely perfect for our family vacation. It’s so gorgeous and so well equipped. My son and I made so many memories on this vacation. We cannot wait to come back and make even more! I couldn’t think of a better place to stay for our next vacation!! Becky and Rod, thank you for everything!

Family Vacation    Jun 15, 2019

Beautiful condo with everything you need. We had a fabulous time with family. Highly recommend R&R Beach Retreat. Becky is a peach to work with.

Mike & Amanda Gibson

Best Time!!    Jun 08, 2019

My family had the best time in Destin. The condo was beautiful, the pools were nice, and the beach was a short walk. Becky was great to work with. Thank you!

Bryan Camden

Flawless condo    May 25, 2019

Absolutely flawless condo, perfectly customized for a high end vacation spot. The furnishings are quality and don’t give the feeling of a “for profit” type rental. You can tell this is their second home, as every little detail is thought out and supplied. Beds are comfortable, bathrooms are nice. We never heard our neighbors despite the next room over having a very large party staying in theirs. We will definitely be coming back. The beach is too close and the pools too nice to stay anywhere else.

Chuck Greenamyer & Tina Knox

2nd Trip!!    May 18, 2019

 We just went for our 2nd time, 5/18 to 5/25/19!
If you don't check this place out you're really missing out! Perfect weather both trips.
Absolutely beautiful, so much to do!
We will definitely be going back for trip #3
Highly Recommended ðŸ’œðŸ’œðŸ’œ

Felt at Home!!    May 11, 2019

We visited R & R Beach Retreat in May 2019 for our first family vacation to Destin. We felt at home. There was not one time we needed anything, the condo was furnished with everything including a high chair and pack and play. The view was amazing we will definitely be returning. Thank you Becky and Rod for your amazing condo and hospitality.

Wendy Larson

First time visitors!    Apr 10, 2019

We just returned from R&R And can’t say enough about the place. The owners are so friendly and easy to work with, their home is very nice and comfortable they truly thought of everything you need. We were first time visitors to the area and certainly were not disappointed the weather was beautiful the water and sand are gorgeous the only downside we had to leave ðŸ˜Š. Thank you Becky & Rod we hope you will have us back!

Relaxing Week!    Mar 23, 2019

Just returned from a nice relaxing week at R&R Beach Retreat in Miramar Beach, Florida. The condo was fabulous and within walking distance from several restaurants. Easy access to the beach and the heated pool was a nice touch. Definitely will be staying at the place again and would highly recommend anyone traveling to the Destin, Fort Walton Beach or Miramar Beach area to try this place out

Jenny McWhorter

Great Place to Rent!!    Feb 01, 2019

R and R is a great place to rent! Everything is fresh and new. The decor is beautiful. Beds are comfortable. The kitchen is extremely well stocked. It’s our first time staying at Ariel Dunes and we have been very pleased. This condo is easy walking distance to the beach and they provide a wagon, a cooler, beach towels and chairs. The balcony is very nice and has a great ocean view. The pool is heated I’ve enjoyed the fitness room. There are lots of good places to walk and bike.

There is plenty of parking and it’s close to a lot of shopping and dining. The owners have really gone to great lengths to make this a wonderful experience. I definitely recommend this rental. It’s quiet, spacious, clean and very well kept.

Becky Rose's reply:

Jenny, we are so happy you are enjoying yourself and we appreciate your kind words!!

Perfection    Oct 13, 2018

Tastfully decorated and spacious, Great location in Destin. Beautiful pools. Guests are courteous of each other. There is a lot you can do, or you can do nothing at all. I definitely recommend R&R Beach Retreat, can't wait for my next trip.

Cindy & Mike August

Perfect spot for some R&R    Sep 23, 2018

This home is very inviting with meticulous attention to detail. Everything you need for a relaxing vacation at the beach is here. The decor is gorgeous, coastal and up to date. You can't tell anyone has been there before you - very, very clean. The location is convenient for walking or short drives - whichever you choose. The beach and pools are beautiful. Becky and Rod have thought of everything. Take a look at their welcome book for ideas and discounts at area restaurants and activities. It is named appropriately for some R&R.

Becky Rose's reply:

Cindy & Mike - we are so glad you were finally able to visit with us!! Thank you for the kind words. They are so appreciated. We can't wait for your next visit!!

Chuck Greenamyer & Tina Knox

We spent a week here in August. The condo is in a perfect location you can walk to most everything!! The decor is beautiful! We had such a great time. Definitely will go back. Everything you could think of they have at the condo for your use at the beach. Just beautiful!!

Erick & Mollie Hamby

Attention to detail    Aug 04, 2018

We loved staying in this condo! It is the perfect location and close to everything.
The decor is amazing and gave the perfect feeling of being at the beach!
We appreciated all of the extra things the condo included!
Every detail has been well thought out from the appliances, beach accessories and the little extras that make a big difference!

We can’t wait to stay here again ❤️ 🌴

Friendly and Helpful Owners    Jul 14, 2018

My family and I really enjoyed our stay in your gorgeous condo.
Two pools to enjoy and there is also a cafe on the 1st floor which has delicious food.
The beach was just a short walk from the condo.

We enjoyed our time there and highly recommend this to others who are looking for a great place to stay with friendly & helpful owners.

Ashley Kochel

Condo is gorgeous!    Jul 07, 2018

Our family had a fabulous time! The condo is gorgeous and stocked with everything you need,

the pools are huge, the beach is clean and only steps away! We can't wait to stay here again!

Emily Saunders

Best Vacation Ever!!    Jun 30, 2018

We wanted to have a great vacation and planned for several months to make sure we would have the vacation to remember. This condo was pure perfection!!! The location was amazing - close to shops, food, grocery, a nail salon, and right across the street from the beach! The pools were amazing and the restaurant on the first floor had good food and drinks! We took family photos on the beach, road in mini cars, spent the day at Crab Island, watched fireworks on the beach, and even found time to workout in the awesome gym also on the first floor. Another thing that made this condo perfect was the space, balcony, two bathrooms, beautiful kitchen, and a washer and dryer right in the room. We have 6 people and didn’t want to be piled into a small space - this condo was the perfect space for our big family. I would highly recommend this condo and can’t wait to visit again ??????

Becky Rose's reply:

Thank you so much for the kind words Emily. Rod and I felt so privileged that you picked our condo as we knew this was going to be a special vacation!! So glad you had a fabulous time!! We can't wait until you come back!!

Close To Everything    May 26, 2018

R&R Beach Resort is a beautiful, comfortable and welcoming condo. If has everything you need for your stay.
Love the keyless entry, so you don't have to worry about locking yourself out / losing keys at the beach.
The grounds are very well kept and clean. It's a short walk to the beach with shopping/restaurants near by.

Plenty of places to book excursions, which are located a short distance away.

Savannah Perkins

We Are Coming Back!    May 19, 2018

They have provided everything you could imagine in the condo!

Not to mention the condo alone is updated and decorated fabulously! We will be back again!!
