The room was perfect for our needs. It has a mini fridge, microwave and coffee maker - works great for a quick breakfast. Located at Baytowne- so you are convenient to restaurants and low key night life without having to drive. The staff responded to any question very quickly.

The unit was exactly what we needed, it's small but when you're in Destin you don't stay inside!!

owner image

Gibson Beach Rentals reservation team 's reply:

Exactly, no one comes to Destin to stay inside! We're happy the efficiency unit suited your needs and appreciate the 5-star review. Next time you visit, stay a little longer and maybe pick out a larger unit on the beach, so you can get the full effect. Be sure to mention our repeat guest discount!

The room is a just cozy enough for 2 adults and 1-2 kids. Beds are SUPER comfortable. Bathtub is super deep if you like to take a bath. The price for this room was unbeatable and the rep I spoke to was super nice. Reservation process was super easy. Their downloadable app was very helpful!! The only downsides: no table or dresser. All your bags have to sit on the ground. (Unless the other bed isn't in use.) There is one very small closet. And there is only 2 rolls of tissue provided and 4 towels. (We had to buy more tissue), and was glad I brought a few towels from home. The other thing, is this room is at the very end of 3-4 long hallways, which is a little inconvenient...We still very much enjoyed the place and would def stay again, but probably in a different room. The amenities at Baytowne Wharf were awesome. The sights and scenery are BEAUTIFUL!!

Gibson Beach Rentals reservation team 's reply:

Thanks for the kind words Tera! We certainly appreciate it! We're super happy y'all loved the condo, even with the small nature. We appreciate your suggestions and will be happy to share with the owner. As is customary in vacation rental units, we do provide 2 rolls of tissue to get you started until you make a market trip; slightly different than a hotel. We're glad to know, in spite of the inconveniences, y'all had a great time and we'd love to have you back again!

Good Alternative to More Expensive Options    Apr 29, 2018

review star


Overall, a good experience with 1 thing to be aware of. The first - when I originally booked the reservation in early 2018, I thought I was booking a 2 bedroom 2 bath with a small living room.  In April, I went back to the site and realized when I read other reviews (that complained about misleading info about the rental) that I only rented the adjoining room, so 1 room, 1 bath. Originally I think they had a floor plan image of the entire “combined” rental, but at this point it is shaded properly to show the smaller area your actually renting. It worked out for me because it ended up only being me that stayed there, but if I there were 4 people it would have been “tight”. It looks like the info about the size of the accommodation has been updated to be more obvious about exactly what you’re getting, so hopefully this is a non-factor moving forward.
The online/app check in / check out, key access was very convenient and worked without any problems at all. Overall, as long as you know you’re getting 1 room with 2 beds and a bathroom for a pretty inexpensive rate (for Sandestin), you should be satisfied.

We're so happy to hear everything worked out for you Mike! Unfortunately we cannot guarantee how other marketing sites depict any of their listings. However, our website does have accurate information. This is why we always suggest to book direct with property management companies instead of marketing sites like vrbo. Thankfully, you had just what you needed and enjoyed your time here. Be sure to contact us directly next time you'd like to visit, we're happy to help!

Perfect Location!    Apr 16, 2017

review star


Overall, it was a great stay. The unit was clean and the location was great. We rented our unit together with 330, so we had access to the patio directly from the joined unit. Otherwise, it would have been a bit of a walk to get to the pool. My recommendation is predicated on joining the units together.  If you're not renting 330, I'd suggest choosing another unit.

Gibson Beach Rentals reservation team 's reply:

Sounds like you had just the right 'fit' for your time here. Thanks so much for your review! We look forward to having you join us again soon!

Perfect location for walking to stuff in the village    Dec 31, 1969

review star


This is a great location just steps from all the restaurants, night activities, marina, etc of Baytowne Warf. The studio is more aptly described as a hotel room, which was fine for us, as we just need a place to sleep. The one thing that would really improve this room would be getting rid of the bulky dresser and putting a long skinny dresser with enough surface area on top to have room to put stuff. The little area by the fridge is not even big enough for making sandwiches and filling up water bottles. We loved finding the door right next to the room that allowed direct acces to the garage and pool without having to walk the very long hallways. We didn’t use the shuttle bc leaving all the beach stuff in the car was easier and there is plenty of parking beachside right where the shuttle drops you off. We never left the resort for eating, as there are so many options. Really liked the free perks from Gibson and the apps. We love staying at Sandestin because we hate the Destin traffic. The resort is beautifully well kept and has so much to offer. Oh, and as others have mentioned, they definitely need more hooks for hanging stuff in the bathroom. This is a great budget friendly choice for those looking to stay at the fancy place, but not pay the fancy price!

Pilot House    Dec 31, 1969

review star


Overall the experience was good, the parking leaves a lot to be desired, the condo was clean, beds were not the most comfortable, but clean. The noise due to construction was absurd, but that is obviously not something that could have been prevented. The community is growing...the beach tram was excellent!! It was nice to not have to travel back in forth in your private vehicle. The pool was nice, easily access from the condo. For the price the ammenities could be updated, also the options for things to do could be easier to use, overall 4/5 stay
