Love this area!    Oct 13, 2018

The condo was very spacious, super clean and lots of towels!  Fishing wasn't best in the Bay, but we ventured out and caught our share of fish! Highly recommend the Charter that comes with activities. Enjoyed Miramar and ventured down to see 30a... a must.  The kitchen, however, was very lacking and sparse, also need some new pans.

Gibson Beach Rentals reservation team 's reply:

Oh no! We're so sorry about that! This is the time of year we do inventory and re-stock our units after a super busy peak season. Please accept our apologies! Since your review, we have added necessary items. We're happy to hear that in spite of the inconvenience, you all enjoyed your vacation. The free fishing opportunities are fantastic, aren't they?! Destin has some of the best fishing on the coast! Thanks for your honest review, we appreciate it and hope to have you visit again soon.

Lovely townhouse on the bay.    Jul 29, 2018

We spent a week with our adult children enjoying the view from this lovely townhouse. The amenities were adequate for our use. It was a short ride to the beach and other activities. Some of the furniture is starting to show signs of wear but it was overall comfortable.

Gibson Beach Rentals reservation team 's reply:

Thanks for the review and your honest opinion. We will be happy to share with the owner. We value and appreciate our guests opinions and are excited y'all had a great time together enjoying the condo, the bay and your vacation.

Location, location, location!    Jun 09, 2018

The rental was immaculate, very spacious and had everything you would need for a nice vacation.  Our favorite feature about this unit was the Location! Being the end unit it was very quiet and provided more privacy than other units would.  We will definitely come back!

Gibson Beach Rentals reservation team 's reply:

Whoohoo!! We're thrilled to hear how much you loved the condo and your vacation. Thanks so much for the excellent review, we really appreciate it. We'd love to have you back any time and want to remind you of our repeat guest discount. Hope to see you soon!

Webb 2018 Vacation    May 26, 2018

We had the best time. Very clean and well decorated. We were right at the end, which we loved. Best part was fishing from the backyard. We will be back.

Gibson Beach Rentals reservation team 's reply:

How cool! We're thrilled y'all had such a great time! Can't wait for you to come back for another visit.

Marsha Carpenter

Golfing vacation    May 18, 2018

Had a wonderful rental. Very clean and in the perfect location for golf. Loved the screened in back porch, with the bay right at the backdoor. Played golf 5 days in a row using the free game each day. What a deal. Can’t wait to come back.

Gibson Beach Rentals reservation team 's reply:

Whoohoo!!! You got the biggest bang for your buck with the free Xplorie activities and we're so thrilled! Thanks for your excellent review, we truly appreciate it!

Great Place    Mar 18, 2018

Property was great. It was recently updated and everything was perfect. I would recommend this rental to anyone. I rented both units 977/978 as a lockout. Both were great. However, 978 has recent updates in the bathroom. Neither properties would be a disappointment.

Gibson Beach Rentals reservation team 's reply:

Thanks for choosing Gibson Beach Rentals for your family vacation needs! We were honored to have you and are so happy you enjoyed our Northshore properties. We appreciate your wonderful 5 star review & hope to have you and your family back again some day soon!

978 Northshore    Feb 28, 2018

We loved the Sandestin resort and we loved the location of this unit. It is an end unit, has great light and very private. It is a great size with two full master bedroom suites and three bathrooms. Having said all that, I feel that the furniture in the main living areas needs to be reupholstered or replaced. Much of it is stained and worn...especially the furniture in the screened porch.

Gibson Beach Rentals reservation team 's reply:

We're so sorry! Please accept our apologies! We appreciate your honest review and will share your thoughts with the owners. Thankfully you all had a great time and enjoyed your stay. Be sure to mention our repeat guest code on your next visit!
