This Condo was Great! Repeat Stay!    Aug 29, 2019

 Newly renovated and super cute. Very clean. Very spacious. Great view of the ocean. Steps from the most beautiful beach in the gulf. Very convenient to lots of restaurants. 
Suzanne was great! I was very impressed that she was so attentive and involved with our reservation and stay. When we had a small issue with the bathtub drain, she got someone out immediately. She was just a phone call away. No dealing with a third party. 


Amazing as Always!    Aug 06, 2019

This is our third year in a row staying here and we can’t wait to come back next year! The location is great, the condo is always so nice and clean when we arrive and Suzanne is so amazing! She’s easy to get a hold of and is incredibly accommodating. We truly enjoy our stay every time!


Very nice clean condo!    Jul 27, 2019

Condo was very clean and neat and well stocked with everything we needed! We felt right at home. It was in the perfect location! Destin is absolutely gorgeous! Suzanne was just a phone call away and checked on us. We had no issues at all! Our family enjoyed it and we will definitely be back! Thank you for sharing your beautiful place with us!

Scott & Deanna

Loved this condo!    Jun 01, 2019

This condo is super nice and very comfortable. We absolutely loved having an ocean view! Everything you need is in this condo. The games & puzzles were a nice touch. My grandchildren enjoyed them. The beach chairs and umbrella were very much appreciated. It was so nice of the owners to supply paper products, soaps and coffee filters, etc. You don’t often find this in rentals. It’s a beautiful condo with plenty of room and the view is amazing! I will definitely book this one again! Thank you Suzanne!!!


FAMILY VACA!    May 04, 2019

Once again we totally enjoyed our stay at this conveniently located and beautifully decorated condo. Suzanne provided everything needed for a enjoyable beach stay. If you want a beautiful view and relaxing stay this is condo is for you.

3rd Time To Stay Here!    Apr 06, 2019

Super nice condo
This was our 3rd visit to this great condo. It's the perfect Destin get away. From morning coffee on the balcony with it's beautiful view to the comfortable beds for a restful nights sleep listening to the waves after a day at the beach. We had the pleasure of meeting the owner Suzanne and her husband, great people, and they work really hard to make sure the condo is in good shape and you have everything you need.

The unit is perfect for us!    Nov 07, 2018

The unit is perfect for us.

This was the 5th year we stayed in the unit. It is always clean and the owner cares about always improving the unit. The location is great and the layout works great for two couples.

AWESOME!!!    Oct 20, 2018

This condo was everything you could wish for, it was like home away from home. It was fully stocked with whatever you needed and the view from the balcony was breathtaking. I would definitely stay here again and the owners acted like they had known me for years, compassionate people. Thanks for allowing us to stay at your property. Have a Blessed Evening.


GREAT PLACE!    Sep 06, 2018

Great location, easy beach access, and we only needed to bring beach towels and food! Owner was very communicative and easy to reach. My family and I had a wonderful time!


Amazing Destin    Aug 15, 2018

We had a wonderful stay in Destin. Our condo was everything described and then some. Beautifully decorated,extremely clean and the view from the balcony was amazing. The owner had extra supplies that our other traveling companions that stayed in other rooms nearby had to go to the store and purchase. Little things make a big difference. Suzanna gave a lengthy list of fun activities, local sites to see and wonderful restaurant. We hated to leave. Thanks Suzanne for a creating a tropical paradise. We cannot wait until our next trip. Thanks for the memories


Paradise!    Jul 14, 2018

The place is absolutely beautiful! Very clean and supplied with everything you need. I hated to leave when our vacation was over. We have already booked again for next year.Theres not one thing I can complain about it. You will not be disappointed staying here


Delightful Property and Experience    May 16, 2018

Three of us used this property for a BFF girlfriend's getaway. It was most perfect for us with the bedroom set-up, the proximity to the beach and all the amenities the owner provided, including beach chairs and an umbrella. We wanted for nothing, except fun in the sun. This is a very nice location in Destin away from the high rises and it was in a lovely neighborhood. We enjoyed walking the beach and seeing all the cute rental houses. We were also able to walk to three good restaurants within a half mile of the condo. (Our favorite was the happy hour at Club 790.) The unit was quiet and well appointed in it's decorations. You can also rent a cabana and chair set-up if you don't want to use the owner's equipment and there is a nearby bicycle rental next to Camille's Sidewalk cafe. The owner is very attentive and meets any reasonable request.

Great Property! Great Location!    Apr 07, 2018

Great property! Great location!

★ ★ ★ ★ ★

Lovely views of the sea sitting inside the condo or on the balcony. Enjoyed watching dophins, and flocks of pelicans. Easy to cross the road and walk to the beautiful beach. Quiet neighborhood.
Condo kitchen was well supplied. Appreciated the washer/dryer.
Suzanne checked in with us to make sure we had arrived safely.

Bryna & Trent

Wonderful Location!    Mar 24, 2018

Wonderful location

We had a great time visiting Destin and staying at your condo. It was a great location to the beach and other sites. Well stocked for when we stayed in for meals. Would definitely recommend to friends. We had a great time. Thank you. 

Mike & Priscilla

Great Place To Stay!    Dec 02, 2017

The view, the complex, and communicating with the owner all help us know we want to return!


Perfect Unit!    Nov 04, 2017

I have rented this unit for a week each of the last 4 years. The location is perfect, the unit is very well equipped and very comfortable, the configuration of the unit allows for each bedroom to have a private bathroom and the unit is always clean upon arrival. The unit is perfect for me. I hope to make it 5 years in a row next year.


Great Location - Amazing Views!    Oct 25, 2017

The view from the balcony is amazing! What a great way to start the day, sitting on the balcony with my morning coffee just enjoying the view and the peacefulness of the surroundings. My husband and I usually ended our nights on the balcony, taking in the serenity of it all. I loved the location. It was steps away from the beach. Shopping, restaurants, and entertainment, all close by. The condo was clean, comfortable, well equipped, and just perfect! Suzanne goes above and beyond to make sure everything is perfect. This was our first trip to Destin and my husband and I will definitely be back. Thank you Suzanne!!

Suzanne Novak's reply:

Thank you Marianne! The pleasure was ours sharing our home away from home with you! So happy we helped make your vacation one you will return to! Thank you!


Beautiful Condo with Fantastic View    Oct 20, 2017

Suzanne could not have been more helpful and pleasant to work with. She gave us excellent ideas on activities to see and do in the area and places to eat. The condo had everything you needed and more. Great location, immaculate condition and beautiful view of the Gulf! Our only disappointment is that we couldn’t have stayed longer! Thank you for sharing your condo with us...we truly enjoyed our time in a Destin !


Beautiful Views!!    Sep 29, 2017

Beautiful views!!!
This condo features beautiful views, and is very nicely appointed with everything you need. Very clean. The living area/kitchen is all open and light & bright. We had a great experience and would definitely go back and stay again. Suzanne was wonderful to work with!

Clean, neat very well thought through . This condo has everything you need for cooking.    Sep 24, 2017

I picked this condo because of all the great reviews . This was our first time in Destin and we couldn't have had a better experience. Suzanne thought of everything , the kitchen is fully stocked for cooking , she even had a lunch box to take to the beach, along with chairs and an umbrella. The condo felt like you were staying in someone's well thought out home , not just another hotel . It was clean, the beds slept good . If your looking for a top notch stay , this is your place hands down. I even had another guest from a different condo ask for her info that they had stayed with her a few yrs back and couldn't find the info, they mentioned that her condo was the one they loved the best. ~Elsie

Suzanne Novak's reply:

Elsie; Thank you so very much! We are so happy you appreciate all the things we include. Nothing worse than arriving on vacation to find you don't have toilet paper or soap! We hope you come again and that you join our other guests who are repeat customers every year! Thank you!


Perfect Beach Getaway and Well Stocked!    Sep 15, 2017

Suzanne truly thought of everything one could need for a trip to the beach at her unit! We ended up leaving most of the kids' beach toys and our chairs in the car as the "treasure chest" on the balcony held all sorts of shovels, pails, sifters, sand molds, water pistols, etc.--everything our 3 yr old (or an adult) could think of needing/wanting was in there. The inside of the unit was practically appointed and tastefully decorated, and the floor plan worked well for us too. "Just add water" comes to mind as Suzanne stocked the kitchen with all the extras: ziplocks, spices, high-end pots and pans. The den was comfortable and had games and a variety of movies (for the brief span of time we weren't at the beach). Last but not least, this place was conveniently situated across the street from a boardwalk to beach--I walked back from our spot on the water to retrieve some sunglasses in the unit and it took 2 minutes to the front's that close. We will be back for sure!


Beautiful view and just steps to the beach!    Sep 02, 2017

Very nicely equipped condo. Even the little things are provided. You won't need to provide anything except beach towels and food! Literally, just steps to the beach!



This condo is the perfect spot to get away. It is conveniently located just across the street from the beach, which is perfect if you need to run back for a quick bite or bathroom break. The condo is set up perfect and has everything you could ask for. We did a lot of cooking at home and had everything we needed to cook and clean up. The wrap around porch is the best part. It has great views of the ocean and plenty of seating. We spent every morning and evening on the porch enjoying the views and nice breeze. Susan was very accommodating and made sure we had everything we could possible need. I would highly recommend this location to anyone looking to stay in the Destin area. I know we will be back next year!!


Great Experience!    Aug 07, 2017

Really enjoyed our stay at this condo. Great location and very well-stocked. Beautiful balcony and view. Suzanne was fantastic to work with - always received prompt and helpful replies to any communication. We especially appreciated her list of recommended things-to-do in Destin. We saw much more of the area than we might have otherwise. Only wish our vacation could have been longer!


Great condo wont find a better person to deal with    Jul 24, 2017

★ ★ ★ ★ ★

Wont find a better person to deal with she goes far far beyond to make sure everything is perfect and its your home away from home. The condo is perfect not in the middle of all the most crowded beaches areas so more family and peaceful but still close enough to get to everything within minutes. Best beaches ive ever seen. Crystal clear water and white sands. Ty so much for everything and we left all the sand toys shovels etc we bought ,for other kids in the toy box so its full for ya. Thanks again its was a grear time and very at home feeling and relaxed. The kids had a blast.

Simply Amazing    Jun 17, 2017

The condo is everythig you could imagine and more!! Everything you can imagine is provided, kitchen is fully equipped allowing you to prepare anything you'd ever want. The view from the balacony is AMAZING! Location location location! You are literally 3-4 miles from anything you'd want to do in Destin. So nice waking up and walking on the beach. Kids loved the pool as well, and adults enjoyed the hot tub after a long day at the beach. We can't wait to come back next year!!!!!! Thank you so very much for sharing your home with us!

Starr Prentice

Wonderful Place!    Jun 09, 2017

This place was beautiful and well kept! It was so much more spacious than what I thought it was going to be! We would definitely stay here again!

Beautiful Condo    Jun 03, 2017

Beautiful condo with everything you need! Wonderful view of the water, excellent location - great owners to work with. Would definitely go back!

Second Visit to this Condo    May 06, 2017

This was our second stay at the Grand Caribbean East and next time we vacation in Destin we will make it a third. Suzanne is a super owner that wants to make sure that everything is just right. The condo is bright, clean, and tastefully decorated. It has anything you need, just bring yourselves and food and your all set. The nearby beach has really soft, brilliant white sand, and literally goes for miles. Hated to leave, but for sure we'll be back.

William B

Great location, wonderful condo, terrific views.    Apr 08, 2017

This was our first time visiting Destin, and we are so glad we chose this condo. We visited with 5 adults, and there was plenty of room for everyone. The view of the ocean from the balcony is wonderful, and it is easy to go to the beach and run back to the condo for lunch or bathrooms, as there are no bathrooms on the beach. As other reviewers have said, the condo is fully equipped. We were lucky to be able to meet Suzanne in person and she went out of her way to be sure we were comfortable. Once we got our bearings, we came to appreciate how it is very close to Publix and Whole Foods, but away from the craziness that is Destin. There are no high rise condos nearby, so the beach is less crowded. We would recommend this VBRO to anyone. (PS Suzanne showed us her second unit just down the hall, which is a single bedroom with extra bunks. It was very nice also if you need more room for additional family members.)

A Home away from Home.    Mar 24, 2017

The condo has a homey vibe with its warm colors and windows overlooking the ocean. The nautical theme of the condo brings a lively character to it that is enjoyable for the whole family and livens up the vacation experience. Everything is clean and easy to find. You'll never want to leave!
