Need to know about Destin

Don't know anything about Destin. We are wanting to stay somewhere along the Gulf for 3 nights June 27-30. We are wanting to rent a condo. We are looking for something cheap and for 5 people. It doesn't have be right on the beach....a few blocks away is fine. My hubby isn't wanting to spend anymore than $150 a night. Is this possible in Destin? If you have any other beach town ideas, let us know. Thanks.

Great Answer. Do you think you can be more helpful or do you prefer to send nasty private messages.

Carrieoke5 you can probably find something a few blocks away from the Beach. Try the Crystal Beach area. There are several beach cottages a few blocks away.

try Compass-resorts.com

resortquest.com

destinvacation.com

and VRBO.com, but be careful here, there is some talk about foreclosures. etc.

NOt for 5 people 150 a night. Alot of people say FWB is cheaper the year we stayed it was. I was looking the other day and did not notice a huge difference. I only took a glance so a harder look probably would have turned up something.

missingthesand: 5 people does sound like a lot, but we just need a 2 bedroom or 1 bedroom with big bed and sleeper sofa. It is just me, my husband, and our 3 kids with one of them just being 2 years old. Thanks for your reply.

Venus condo on Okaloosa Island,Ft. Walton has a 2 bed/1 bath for $150 a night. It is almost @ the dead end of Santa Rosa Blvd. That area is usually not as crowded & the beach is undeveloped for miles just past it. This area is about 15 min. to the West of Destin. There is a new condo that has been built between it & the beach, but it is very close.

This is the website:

Then your cheapest bet would be a 1 bedroom with the hall bunks. They usually have a sleeper sofa. Try looking at Gulfview or Grand carribean east or west. They tend to run a little lower. 150 I don't know I will take a look later and see. you could always try telling the owner your budget and see what happens. That is peak season and peak prices however.

I agree w/ Missingthesand. There are a lot of 1 bedrooms that have bunk beds extra. So, 2 of the kids could sleep in the bunk beds & 1 could sleep on the floor. Most condos also have hide-a-beds, so they kids could sleep in the room & you guys can sleep on the pull out couch. Just to give you something to think about & hopefully give you some more options in your price range!

Here are some options I found on VRBO in the Miramar Beach area:

http://www.vrbo.com/83116 (Gulfview Vacation Rentals)

http://www.vrbo.com/179617 (Maravilla)

http://www.vrbo.com/67421 (Gulfcrest) This is a 2 bedroom & the 2nd bedroom has a full & a twin.

http://www.vrbo.com/70064 (Summer Breeze)

http://www.vrbo.com/108719 (Amalfi)

http://www.vrbo.com/208809 (Ariel Dunes I) - This is the cheapest unit available b/c they are offering a 20% discount if you book before 4/15. Not sure why their prices are so much lower than all others.

http://www.vrbo.com/39187 (Ciboney)

All of these condos seemed to have lower rates, so regardless of the site you use, these are probably the buildings you'd want to focus on - if you decided to stay in the Miramar Beach area!
