My wife & I & our neighbors enjoyed 3 beautiful nights in Destin, FL.. The crowds were small & the restaurant wait time was minimal. We had fresh seafood & drinks galore. Our condo was great...clean and spacious. The view of the ocean was so memorable. We loved our accommodations & the trip in the Fall.
The Summit was clean and the second closest Tops'l condo complex to both the beach and the Hilton Sandestin where I had my conference. Although the August 90 degrees even at 8 am left me with a mild amount of sweat after my 15 min beach walk to my conference, the stay was less than half the price. The rooms were mildly dated (circa 2007) but clean and convenient. The few issues with slow running drains in the shower and a cable box that did not work were quickly remedied with a workman by the next day. The family loved it!
