Nicest place we have stayed in Florida since we have been coming for over 30years

Wow! Thank you so much for the kind review Benjamin. We are so pleased to read that your vacation surpassed your expectations! We're ecstatic you got the GBR 5 star experience! We hope to have you stay with us again on the beautiful gulf coast!

We could not have asked for a better vacation or condo to spend it in! From the moment we arrived everything was absolutely perfect! This condo is absolutely gorgeous! The beach theme decor is beautiful with all high end finishes from the decor and furniture to the countertops and appliances. Every thing we needed was there for us to use. The beds were super comfortable and I loved that the master had the remote control sliding shade so we could enjoy that beach view as soon as we awoke. Although we didn’t have time to enjoy the TV console was stocked with plenty of games, movies and books for everyone in the family. The location made it easily accessible to shopping and dining. I can’t think of any place we would rather stay in Destin than BM 308 and we hope to make it a yearly tradition.

Beach Manor 308    Mar 01, 2020

review star

A newly renovated unit quite unlike others. Modern decoration and facilities and very comfortable with a good view of the gulf. Really liked the rocking chairs even two on the balcony. Minor issues - top of the line appliances, but difficult to operate - especially the washing machine.The bed in the master bed room it too high - had to buy a step stools to get into it!

Gibson Beach Rentals reservation team 's reply:

Hi Peter, We love to know that you enjoyed your stay with us. The rocking chairs make the perfect touch for just soaking in the view on the balcony. We would have love to show you how to operate any of the appliances. Beds are something that no one will ever agree on. It is up to the discretion of the owner. We hope to have you back next year!
