I have done a lot of research online but perhaps someone can help me? We want to rent a condo in Destin in December for 3 weeks. These are our requirements:

1) must be able to sleep 8
2) must have 2 or 1.5 baths
3) must be ON the Gulf, not across the street
4) must be a low rise building, no more than 3 floors
5) must have an outdoor pool
6) must have outdoor grills available

Anyone know of any properties that fit this bill? We have 4 adults, 1 teen, 2 toddlers and a 12 year old. So the pool is a must. If you can suggest condos, I can look them up online or see if there are any on VRBO.com.

I'm going to make a plug for the beaches of south walton/"30-A":


SoWal.com - Beaches of South Walton Home Page

30A.com: LIFE SHINES on Florida's Scenic Highway 30A

Discover30A.com: Travel Guide for Scenic Route 30-A in Walton County, Florida

less crowded than Destin (although most/all Panhandle beaches will have few people at this time of year)

the "30-A" area has gorgeous scenery and easy access to Destin (and Panama City, if you're on eastside of 30-A).

The above websites have plenty of info re accommodations.
