We rented unit 76 in Southbay by the Gulf through the management company Emerald Coast Vacation Rental. Unfortunately, this was a last minute rental during there peak season. This was my first time visiting Destin. We had a great time in Destin, but the condo was terrible. The bed sheets and pillowcases were dirty, so I washed the linen. The comforters and pillowshams were dirty. The condo was not clean. There were rodent droppings in the cabinet containing pots and the drawer containing silverware. Small amount of feces in the downstairs toilet. The carpets were FILTHY!! the shower curtain liners were dirty. On arrival, my daughters found the second bedroom shower clogged with hair. The keys did not work properly, we had to get more keys. Deadbolt lock on front door was non-functioning. Not sure why we paid 100 cleaning fee. We will not return. These owners are making great profits. Would they stay in the condo as we found it?
