We rented unit 503 at Beach Resort, we love staying at Beach Resort in the past, but this unit is in dire need of some TLC.
The chair in the living room was worn so bad it should be thrown in the trash, the air conditioning unit either worked all the time thus freezing you or didn't work at all ! The dish washer was not anchored and when opened would fall out onto the floor causing a very dangerous safety hazard ! Our daughter opened it and fell forward ! We are so glad there were no sharp knives in the dishwasher at that time. The kitchen was missing several items as well as no iron. One of the chairs on the balcony was torn ! We did contact the Beach Bums agency and supposedly a repairman came but the air conditioning was still not working properly. Beach Bums ask for a review and we did review this unit but we do not see it on their web site ! Beach Bums said the unit was just purchased and the new owner needed to work on it ! These items should have been taken care of BEFORE the unit was rented ! We will probably visit Beach Resort again very soon but would be not rent 503 and would most likely NOT use Beach Bums again. The fact that our review doesn't show up on their web site is a clear indicator for us to stay away.

we stayed here recently for a second time (this time in unit 210). the pluses for this resort are: pool area with zero entry for little ones, large pool with lots of room so never feels crowded, close enough to beach but does take about 4-5 minutes to walk as its across the street and over a bit, easy walking area outside of condo gaits for walking down scenic 98 or bike riding, quiet condo and smaller which means less congestion, easy access to elevators, laundry in unit, beach service was included and makes a nice incentive, and love that these units offer two bathrooms - a must for families with young ones (no tub in second bath, only shower). the negatives: unit dirty upon arrival and i ended up cleaning throughout before unpacking (i notified VRBO owner and he said he'd discuss with cleaning service), the kitchen could use some restocking or upgrading for even basic cooking utensils, for kids there were only ceramic dishes, no plastic dishes to use (not a problem for us as we usually use paper on vaca). this particular unit did not have a TV in bunk bed area so that was a bummer for the kids (my bad as i should have checked that before booking).
beach access does have several sets of stairs so some may have trouble with that. we love the scenic 98 area where this condo is located, as it offers easy access to sandestin on one side, and mid city of destin on the other. will prob look at going a different time of year next time as the traffic in destin is unbearable during the summer - too many condos built with too much congestion - def losing the 'beach town' feel over the past several years :(

My family loves this area and we have stayed in this building before. Love the pool area and plenty of room at the pool with no overcrowding. Plenty of seating and nice hot tub. Key getting in and out of pool area was aggravating but I understand the need.

If you are wanting a gulf view this is not ideal as there are homes directly in front of the condo. Maybe a better view if you are on the fifth floor.

There is about a .25 mile walk to the beach entry so be cautious of how much you pack to the beach. Many used wagons to tote their beach stuff and there is a great area right inside the gate to park wagons and strollers. Sidewalk to area is nicely paved and safe for families to walk.

Our rental from Newman Daily had a daily umbrella and chair rental included. However they reserve the front chairs for large groups so plan to be stuck in the back of you are a small family like ours. Can't really say I agree with this rule.

I would rate the cleanliness of the room as a 3 out of 5. Needs a good deep clean with lots of dust collected on high things and light switches and door knobs dirty. Found myself cleaning all the dishes as I got them out of the cabinet. Not near as clean as previous Newman Daily experiences.

Kitchen was well equipped. Charcoal grills available but no gas grill. Walking distance from several restaurants and DQ ice cream about a 2.5 mile walk for a family treat.

Beautiful and comfortable room with view of the beach.
Walking distance to a couple of restaurants.
Very nice pool. Rather pricey but so is everything in this area during the summer.
Very comfortable bed. Quiet and relaxing.

Beach Resort is a wonderful place to stay. You have a Gulf view as well a pool view. The Condos are spacious and very clean. It has everything you need. If you have little ones it has a zero entry pool as well as a regular pool. Hot ten, grilles and the beach is across the street. I would definitely recommend this place.
