Great place!!    Oct 05, 2018

We absolutely loved this condo.  Very well furnished and fell in love with the balcony!   Wow the views were breathtaking from the oversized balcony!  Although it was red tide at the time of our stay and we couldn't enjoy the beach we still enjoyed the condo!!!

Gibson Beach Rentals reservation team 's reply:

We sure are sorry about the red tide, it sure wasn't what we had in mind either. But we are so happy to hear how much y'all loved the condo! We appreciate your review & hope to have you return again to perfect, fabulous tides. Be sure to mention our repeat guest discount.

Labor Day    Sep 01, 2018

That's fabulous Jenny! We're thrilled you loved the condo, the beach and your time here. We can't wait to have you join us again. Be sure to mention our repeat guest discount.

Need a 28' Balcony? This one DELIVERS !    May 26, 2018

Seeking ultimate balcony is our #1 goal; This one seats fourteen! T1509 delivered for us the week prior to Memorial Day, 2018. We've stayed up & down Hwy. 98, preferring Miramar Beach this time.

This property is sophisticated, very classic trims, without any typical 'coastal' touches. This was refreshing! Light filtering draperies in the den were perfect to tame afternoon sun and for utilizing the hide-a-bed for sleeping.

Many water toys/goodies are in the closet! We enjoyed two folding chairs & umbrella ($40 per day saved!) and a few Boogie Boards for youngsters.

Kitchen is very chic, upgraded & clean!! Two coffee pouches are provided or bring your own DRIP coffee supplies. Master bath is huge; Pearlized glass tiles frame mirrors -- high end touch!

We'll be back to TOPS'L Beach & Racquet Club.

Gibson Beach Rentals reservation team 's reply:

Sounds like Tides 1509 was a perfect fit for your family! We're thrilled you enjoyed it so much. Thanks for the amazing review, we appreciate it. Be sure to mention our repeat guest discount when you come back on your next visit.

Perfect Anniversary Getaway    Apr 15, 2018

Our unit was even better than expected. The views were amazing from the moment we walked in and the inside was nicely furnished with modern amenities. We will definitely book this space again when traveling to Destin.

Gibson Beach Rentals reservation team 's reply:

Yay!!! Sounds like y'all had a fabulous time! We can't wait for you to come again.

Great condo    Mar 24, 2018

We have rented from Gibson several times for the same condo and they are excellent. Condo is wonderful and well maintained. Gibson is by far the best rental agency

Gibson Beach Rentals reservation team 's reply:

Awe shucks, you're making us blush! But seriously, Thank You! We are thrilled you had such a great time and enjoyed the condo so much! We absolutely love our repeat guests and wish you all a happy summer! Can't wait to have you back again.

Veronique Vaughan

Great experience!    Mar 09, 2018

We spent 2 weeks in this wonderful condo! Reservation and communication with Gibson were so easy, just a phone call away and also a very useful app on your phone. The condo was very clean and it’s even better than the pictures, very roomy and such a great view with a huge balcony from the 15th floor. Coffee machine was not working, no problem they just brought a new one right away, TV not fonctionning, they sent a person to fix it right away! We were so sorry to leave and we hope to return!

Gibson Beach Rentals reservation team 's reply:

Yay!!! We are so thrilled you enjoyed Tides 1509 and your time here so much. It's truly our please to help out with the incidentals that sometimes happen; that's what we're here for. Our goal is to make your stay as comfortable and fun as possible!. Thanks for the wonderful review, be sure to mention our repeat guest discount on your next visit.

Nice place bad weather    Feb 19, 2018

A very nice condo; but, the weather was so wet and cold for December and January we had to return to TN to escape.
I know that this was the worst winter on record I am told for the panhandle of FL so this is no reflection on the property. Gibson was nice to work with.

Gibson Beach Rentals reservation team 's reply:

We're so sorry! We truly wish this past winter had been less severe and much warmer. We appreciate your honesty and hope you can come back for a Spring or Fall get-away. The sunshine sure makes a world of difference!

Winton Elliott

Our new home away from home!    May 13, 2017

We had a great vacation at Tides #1509 and will return year after year! 

Gibson Beach Rentals reservation team 's reply:

The Emerald Coast misses you already and we're so excited that you've found your perfect vacation spot! Can't wait to have you back.

Stacey Blankenship

Tides 1509 Condo --- Beautiful!    Apr 23, 2017

My husband and I stayed in Tides 1509 during the third week of April.  We loved the condo.  It was exactly as depicted in the pictures.  I will definitely consider staying here again!  

Gibson Beach Rentals reservation team 's reply:

And we'd love to have you return Stacey! Hearing how much you enjoyed your visit is music to our ears.

Beth Fryer

Tides 1509 Review    Apr 08, 2017

Wonderful experience, wish we were able to have the early check in as we requested but the stay was still one of our best vacations

Gibson Beach Rentals reservation team 's reply:

So do we Beth! We try really hard to get all of our guests in just as soon as possible. If only cleaning wouldn't take so long! We are really happy to hear that you enjoyed your time here and we hope to have you join us again soon.

Kristin Rankin

Beautiful condo    Mar 25, 2017

We have rented Tides 1509 several times and is it one of our favorites!  From the tall ceilings to large balcony to the great interior design, it never disappoints.

Gibson Beach Rentals reservation team 's reply:

Sounds like you've found a 'home away from home'! What a treat to visit such a wonderful spot, year after year. Thanks for coming back, we hope to see you again real soon!
