We have a 6 year old and a 3 year old and we visited in July. We chose the Coral Reef Club. We rented unit 12 directly from the owner (vrbo.com). We had an amazing time with first floor access to the beach. There is also a small pool perfect for children...

My family usually stays at Pelican Beach Resort. IT's ocean front and has two pools, and is in a great location. The rates are down at that time anyway... a 1 bedroom at 132 per night w/ bunks in hallway, ask for the special, it's 20% off. Also if you tell them you have stayed there before they'll give you an additional 5% off :). If you look online, go to book online, then book your reservation on line and at the bottom of that page you can scroll through units. units start at 201... floor numbers ending in 11 (like, 511,611) etc. signal the end of the 1bedroom. so from 1-11 is the 1 bedroom. You have to scour thru them to make sure you don't get an outdated room, but I bet you'll find one you like. We are staying there in Oct. for 5 nites and the total is around 600$. IT's pretty much one of the biggest bangs for your buck in Destin. I have researched it, believe me! This will be our second visit this yr., and we return there yr. after yr. Good Luck!

We love Jetty East. Easy access to the beach from the pool and vice versa, and beachfront so you can run up to the room to change a diaper or get a snack.

We stayed at the Ariel Dunes. POOL IS AWESOME. Booked through owner at VRBO. 1 bedroom with bunks on the 22nd floor. The view was so beautiful. Great deal for a great place.

We usually rent a house, but stayed at Emerald Dunes # 301 last February. I liked that the complex itself is small, only four stories with maybe 6 to a floor, IIRC. The great big complexes don't appeal to me!

They are individually owned, so I can't speak for all the units, but this one had very nice decor, great washer/dryer and other appliances. Good space for a condo, and a fantastic view. Also in a very convenient part of town, practically across 98 from the Commons. Pool is small, but nice, and there is a hot tub. Loved walking straight out onto the sand, and the view.

Here's a link www.southernresorts.com/bre/property.php…

It actually looks a lot nicer in person than in the pictures. It has a balcony, although they don't show it in the pics, but it's a bit small (the balcony,the condo itself is very spacious with one of the biggest kitchens I've ever seen in a condo) good for maybe 4-5 adults comfortably. We'd totally stay there again. Oh, and it's a two bedroom, but has really cool berth beds...great for kids to snuggle. Also, Southern Resorts is good about giving a discount if you ask we have found.

Try Destin on the Gulf. Small building, only 42 units. Inexpensive in late summer.

My family and I (we have a 14 month old) are currently staying at Emerald Towers. I booked it through Panhandlegetaways.com. It is beach front, has a nice pool, and is centrally located. I'd definitely stay here again when we come back to Destin.
