Condo, 2 Bedrooms + Sofa-Sleeper, 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

Come to Destin, Florida and enjoy the sugar-white beaches and emerald-green waters!

We have a 2-story condo that is fully furnished with all the necessary kitchen appliances, towels, linens & blankets. You have one reserved parking spot within steps from your front door and one additional parking, first come first serve.

Our condo is located on the beach side of Highway 98 on a beautiful five-acre freshwater lake. Fish right off your deck or at one of the gazebos located within the complex. It's just a five-minute stroll through Southbay's tropical paradise to the sugar-white private beach and we even provide a wagon to make things easier to carry. Once at the beach you will be provided with 2 beach chairs and umbrella (March-October). There are two adult and two kiddie pools (one heated...February to Mid-April) within walking distance. You never have to cross a street to get to the beach or pools! Sharable BBQ grills are located on the grounds for your use. There are two lighted tennis courts on the property as well.

Our condo has 2 bedrooms and 2 full baths on the first level. Each bedroom is furnished with a flat-screen TV. The master bedroom includes its own deck (renovated in 2018) that overlooks the five-acre freshwater lake with a spectacular view!

The newly renovated second level has a spacious living room with a queen sofa-sleeper and a complete dining area. Enjoy watching a movie on the 50” plasma TV with free cable, along with a DVD & VCR. Walkout onto the upper deck (renovated in 2018) and enjoy the beautiful sunsets on the furnished deck, which includes a patio table that seats 6. Grab your fishing pole and try to catch a bass or maybe a snapping turtle that are waiting for you in the lake! The fully equipped kitchen was completely renovated in 2013 with ceramic floors and granite counter tops. It includes an updated half bath with ceramic floors and not to forget...a washer and dryer for your convenience.

We have several floating devices, boogie boards and plenty of sand toys. For your convenience, there is an air-hose to blow up rafts, tubes and beach balls (located at pool on the South side of the lake).

Southbay by the Gulf is located in the heart of Destin right off Highway 98 and for the most part is within 5 miles of tons of fun.

There is Harbor Walk Village for shopping, dining, activities, deep sea fishing, boat rentals, jet ski rentals, pontoon rentals, dolphin cruises and much more.

If you love to shop, there is a huge outlet mall located about ten minutes away. If you are a golfer, there are several great courses nearby. Super Walmart is less than 2 miles away and there is also a Winn-Dixie right across the street from our condo. There are several shops and restaurants within walking distance too.

The Big Kahuna's Water & Adventure Park is less than a mile away that offers 40 rides and attractions.

The Track Family Fun Park has go-kart rides, kid rides, bumper rides, miniature golf, arcade and thrill rides.

Some of our favorite restaurants are: The Back Porch, AJ.'s Seafood & Oyster Bar, Tailfin's Ale House, Dewey Destin's on the Bay (a much see at sunset), Mellow Mushroom Pizza and Fudpucker's Beachside Bar & Grill that have live "gators" and shows for the kids.

Whether you are looking for a nice family vacation, a fun girl's trip or a romantic getaway, Southbay by the Gulf is perfect for everyone!

So book your vacation today...put your flip flops on...come enjoy a relaxing time and have some fun in the sun on the beach in Destin!!!

See you soon!

The property was all it was listed as. Clean, spacious, with many extras. We had our 2 grandchildren, 2 and 1 year olds, the property had a fabulous gate to go on stairway to assure that the kids stayed upstairs. Could not have been better for our family get-away.

Beach vacation    Jun 01, 2019

review star

Accommodations were good. Codes kept changing and not working on gate to get to the beach so we got locked out ... then we got locked in. Very aggravating when you are trying to squeeze in a little beach time between soccer games. Had some issues with internet and tv but we didn’t care so much as we spent all our time outside. Just needed internet late at night. Our chairs were not reserved ahead of time for us as we thought so it took us a while to find out where we could get a spot. Guy who handles the chair sat on his cell phone while we wandered around then told us we couldn’t sit there ... finally looked up our house number and directed us. Wasted a good bit of time and he was rude. All in all nice accommodations but poor communication. Probably will chose somewhere it is less headache to get to the beach next time. We were suppose to have late check out for an extra 50 bucks and they didn’t charge it bc of all the inconveniences. Nice gesture by the manager.
