#218 - Family of 5 Everyone was happy!

by Aurora CO

5 of 5

Overall Comment

Condo 218 with 3 beds in the guest room for our teen kiddos and a spacious primary was perfect! The mattress in the main bedroom was incredible! We all slept great.
Do note they provide a starter kit (dish soap and dishwasher powder, a couple coffee filters, a few trash bags and 2 rolls of paper towels and I think 2 rolls of toilet paper for each bathroom.) Recommend you bring extra of everything in the starter kit and also salt and pepper and any other basic seasonings, extra trash bags or use grocery bags. The coffee maker does drip and Kcups so bring filters or Kcups. There are kitchen washcloths for dishes or you could pick up a sponge or brush if you prefer.Target was maybe a mile away and Walmart was about 3? Traffic gets heavy so plan extra time for your outtings.
As for the rest of the condo, the couch is huge and very comfy and the sliding door to the balcony off the living room opens and closes easily even though it is very heavy and blocks out almost all noise. We never heard the pool traffic even though we were so close.
The walk to the beach was maybe 2 minutes around the edge of the building and straight off the boardwalk. Beach setup while we were there seemed to get started at 7 am the first few days then a storm was moving in and that appeared to push beach service out an hour or so. Waters were rough out last couple days there (double red) and definitely changed the Holiday Surf beach which delayed chairs and umbrellas but made perfect sense given the circumstances. Bryson was a great beach attendant!
There are a ton of great restaurants but our favorite was Acme Oyster House in Miramar Beach about 25 mins away.
We did rent a pontoon and spent the day at crab island. Tons of little food and snack and drink boats cruise around throughout the day. We enjoyed snorkeling there and floating around in the beautiful sunshine and crystal clear water.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Holiday Surf and would gladly book here again!

The best water and easiest beach access

by Flower Mound TX

5 of 5

Overall Comment

This was probably my 25th visit to Holiday Surf. I've been coming since around 1985. Late May and early June make for some great weather and water. If you want the quickest access to the beach, stay in a 1st floor unit which all have a walkout patio. The lowest unit numbers and highest unit numbers are closest to the end/beach. The middle unit numbers are closest to pool. Get out to the boardwalk around 6:40am to reserve your beach chair/umbrella spot.

This was our first vacation with our 8 month old baby, and I would definitely recommend this place to parents traveling with little ones! The condo was clean and roomy. The condo is close to all the major attractions, but off the busy main road. The view was beautiful and the beach wasn’t very crowded—we never had to fight for a spot in May. The front desk team was very accommodating and helpful. Our unit had an issue with the dishwasher and a maintenance person came in less than 30 minutes to fix it. If we come back to Destin, we will very likely stay here again!

This was the best family vacation yet, the room was beautiful. Beach front. They had beach toys, and pool noodles in the closet. It was equipped with everything you need. I will definitely be back. The beds and pillows were more comfortable then I have at home. Everything was so close by. Food, tourism spots, tours, family fun things just down the road.

Great week in Destin

Overall Comment

we had a great week at Holiday Surf and Raquet Club. Our condo was clean and room enough for our family of 6. The location was fantastic and the beach access and chair service was perfect for the days of nice weather that we had. our last 2 days there the winds picked up and we could not go into the gulf but the pool, tennis and shuffleboard kept our kids busy. Location is central to everything, beach is pristine and staff was friendly and communicative.

This is a great unit with great decor! You can see the ocean from this second floor room, but not the whole beach. Easy to watch the tennis courts and pool from your balcony. Very comfortably sleeps six. The master bath is tiny, don’t plan to get ready at the same time. Unit was very clean, just felt the floor could have been cleaner. These condos have a desk (similar to hotel) where you check in. This was not clearly communicated as I was waiting for an email with check in details. Overall, we had a great week, it was cold but we played lots of tennis and pickle ball!

Tennis Girl's Beach Getaway

by Dacula GA

Overall Comment

This was a well deserved weekend getaway and the Holiday Surf and Racquet Club #218 did not disappoint. We had 8 ladies, so it was a little tight for sleeping (2 on a sofa bed) even though it sleeps 8. Beautiful décor and furnishings. Location was perfect, view perfect, beach perfect. Isaac on the beach went out of his way for us! We went to play tennis, a small round robin and were excited the courts were right in front of our unit. Only issue, courts are in bad shape. They need resurfacing and the nets are falling apart. Those definitely need to be replaced. A racquet club looking like that shouldn't be called a racquet club. However, given that, nothing else to complain about. It was a perfect weekend had by all 8 of us!

Our condo was very nice. We found extra perks when we arrived! Some of those were free movie rentals, welcome starter kit, check out equipment for tennis/shuffle board, and a big screen outdoor movie night for the whole building! We really enjoyed our time! The people were helpful and my free chairs/umbrella was ready and calling my name each morning!! My only complaint would be to have a recycling spot for at least cans. Oh it also has mailbox drop off for outgoing mail. We would stay there again for sure!

We returned to 218 for the third year. We enjoy the location of that condo, easy for getting in and out of without elevators or going thru the lobby. It has been tiled and repainted so it looked fresher. We enjoy our stay at holiday but the desk staff could be more informed about reservations and general questions.
