Our stay at Miramar    Oct 18, 2018

First experience with resort in question found it quite satisfying and amazed how well designed it was along it's location could not ask for a better stay.

Gibson Beach Rentals reservation team 's reply:

That's so great to hear! We're thrilled you loved your stay and can't wait to have you back for another visit again soon!

Alice Cheak

Great trip    Oct 06, 2018

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.

Gibson Beach Rentals reservation team 's reply:

That's so great to hear Alice! Thanks a million for your excellent review, we really appreciate it. We're thrilled y'all loved unit and it's amazing proximity to the Village. Come back & see us again soon!

Peaceful    Aug 24, 2018

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

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!

Great value!    Aug 16, 2018

Lovely room with fun amenities!

Gibson Beach Rentals reservation team 's reply:

Yay! We're so glad you loved the unit and took advantage of the fun amenities! Thanks for the 5-star review, we appreciate it!

Snug-as-a-bug-in-a-rug    Aug 12, 2018

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

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.

Gibson Beach Rentals reservation team 's reply:

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

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!
