Newly Renovated by Beachcondosindestin Leeward Key 705

2 Bedroom/ 2 Bath Newly RemodeledLeeward Key is a favorite of many guest staying in the Destin Area. This is one of the only Beach Condos in Destin with 2 pools, one on the beach side of Scenic Gulf Drive and one on the north side of Scenic Gulf Drive behind the condos themselves. The ability to bring a well behaved pet to this high rise complex with stunning views of Miramar Beach make this complex one of a kind.** The view from this unit are arguably one of the best beach views in Destin.

Due to an unfortunate change in Association Rules, we are no longer permitted to rent Pet-Friendly after September 8th, 2021.

Access to the beach is very easy.    Apr 10, 2021

review star

It is always scary renting an unfamiliar place, but this condo lives up to everything listed and more. Check in is a breeze with the code provided by the owners. The condo is well decorated and very comfortable. The shower is fabulous. The kitchen is well stocked, if you are going to do much cooking (we were on vacation so we did very little cooking). Access to the beach is very easy. Was a little concerned about having to cross the street but it is a piece of cake. There is a cross walk and most traffic stops to allow for crossing. Sitting on the balcony is pure heaven. The place is very quiet. Only noise from others was an occasional chair upstairs. At the time we stayed, pets were allowed but the rules may be changing by the HOA which will prohibit us staying there again, BUT if pets were again allowed we would definitely stay here again . Lovely home away from home!

This is a great condo! The bedrooms were so nice and relaxing- beds are super comfy! The location of the condo is perfect. Not only is it right next to the beach but shopping and food is also close by. Also, any questions we had were promptly answered by the owners. We will definitely want to stay here in the future!

The Location, the property, the decor, the attention to detail, the view and so much more made this vacation perfect. Both the master and guest rooms were nice, and both bathrooms too! The pictures do not lie. Renee was quick to get back with me on questions and made herself available. We’ll definitely be returning. Thank you Renee for a relaxing stress-free vacation!!!

This place was the perfect get away for me and my family. We didn’t have to fight too much traffic in the Miramar area and the private beach with chair service was excellent! I definitely will come back here again.

We had a great experience staying at the condo. It’s newly updated, open and clean. The location is great, the beach wasn’t as crowded as some of the others, the elevators were quick and we were located close to everything. We had a few minor issues that were taken care of quickly. I would definitely stay again!

Condo was very nice & clean. Location is great! Walking distance to 2 restaurants near by. Access to the private beach plus the 2 chairs & umbrella was awesome! The only downfall was we have a 2 year old & there wasn't a deadbolt on the front door, so he could easily open the door.

Perfect in every way!    Dec 26, 2018

review star

Have been traveling to Destin for almost 30 years, so we’ve stayed at a lot of properties. We are very particular about where we stay. We want perfection, or as close as we can get. This property, Leeward Key 705, was as close to perfection as we’ve seen. Gorgeous inside and out, spotless inside, high end furniture and bedding. The mattress felt exactly like mine at home, firm and high end. Slept soundly every night, and I’m an insomniac. Two large bedroom, two king beds, two large bathrooms. Kitchen high end, tops and floors gorgeous. No carpet! Yay! The building itself is immaculate along with the grounds. Lightening fast elevators x 2. Unit is right across from the elevator. Solid thick walls. We never heard anything from neighbors. It’s a quiet, peaceful, well maintained property. There are vending machines and a spotless workout room with high end equipment. Kudos to Renee and Laura for being right there always, just a text away from the moment we checked in until we left. Thank you both for making our stay spectacular. We were even able to rent an extra night at last minute so we could arrive Christmas night. 8 glorious nights! Will definitely be back here. Don’t miss out on this property. You won’t be disappointed. Oh, ice and water dispenser and fabulous coffee pot and pet friendly. Our dog was sooooo happy and relaxed, and he tends to get nervous at times. Also, Publix delivery if you are a member of Instacart, which I am. What a bonus to have groceries delivered.

Perfect Escape    Dec 26, 2017

Condos was beautiful and well equipped. Beach was outside front door, two outdoor pools, great parking. We were here in slow season and it was wonderful. Beds were super comfortable and lots of pillows. Weather was cold for the area, but the whole country was cold! We would return to this condo again in a heartbeat.

Thankfully this cold did not last long. We are so glad that you had a good time and look forward to your return.

We were very pleased with everything during our stay. Beds were comfortable, plenty of towels and cooking utensils. The condo is very nicely decorated. Our one day that we had to stay in all day (due to hurricane Nate) was enjoyable as well. We just played cards and watched Netflix. The owner is very nice and easy to work with. We are already hoping to book here again next year.

The condo was very nice and clean. it was so great being able to take our dogs and the kids loved the pool and beach! The building is in a great location. A very casual restaurant next door as well as captain Daves that is more upscale. Both with in walking distance. Even though we were across the street from the beach we never felt that was an inconvenience. It's a very short walk and you have a fantastic view from this unit!

Perfect!    Jun 17, 2017

It was decorated beautifully. Very clean. Even though it's across the street it seems to be on the beach bescause when you open the balcony door there is the beautiful ocean. Restaurants are so close you can walk. The weather was ugly the week we were there. Double red flags and lots of rain. That's the only thing bad and it couldn't be helped. Beautiful master bedroom view of ocean as well. On the rainy days was able to watch my Netflix on the huge tv screens. Also my 15 yr old fur friend loved it...she even seemed relaxed:) Hope we can rent it again, hopefully not on a rainy week!

Beautiful condo, just like the pictures show! The view of the ocean is fabulous, saw dolphins almost daily from the balcony! The location is perfect with great food within walking distance. Having a beach umbrella and 2 chairs with the room was a huge plus also. We loved that we could bring our "furry" senior family member. The owner always quick to respond to emails with easy check in/out processes. Having codes instead of a bunch of different keys made it so hassle free. Highly recommend this place for your stay in Destin!

Great condo rental find in our favorite area of Destin! Condo was clean and comfortable with everything we needed. The location is perfect with great food within walking distance and the view of the ocean is spectacular. Loved that we could bring our dog which means we saved enough money by not having to board her to come back soon! Owner always quick to respond to emails with easy check in and check out. Will definitely rent this one again!

Wonderful Stay at the Beach    Mar 04, 2017

We loved the condo! - it was beautiful just like the pictures. We had a great view of the beach from our balcony (which we ate breakfast every morning on) and the master bedroom - what a way to wake up every day! We thank you for your unit being pet friendly as our little dachshund always travels with us . We will definitely stay here again. Thank you for easy booking and great communication.

The Perfect Beach Home    Jun 03, 2016

review star

This condo really does feel like a home. It is decorated in a stylish and modern way, with new appliances. The view from the balcony is perfect, you look directly to the ocean and those perfect crystal waves. The check in/check out process is so easy, there is no paperwork or standing in line at the business office. You simply go to your condo, punch in the key code from the last email you received and you are set! The condo comes with 2 free beach chairs and an umbrella set up every morning-don't forget to tip the chair guys :) We saw dolphins from our balcony and at our chairs twice during the week. It is truly a paradise come true, we will definitely be coming back to stay!
