pilot house 328- spring break 2023

Mahomet IL


Pilot House 328 was perfect for the trip my daughter and I took over Spring Break. The size was perfect as it was just the 2 of us; location was great, and management was very quick to answer any questions we had. We had plenty of activities right outside in Baytowne Wharf; Jolee Island was a short walk and the tram allowed us to travel to additional locations without the need to drive, search and pay for parking. Overall, this was a great experience. All staff- whether it be within Pilot House; local cafés; those working the activities within the resort or the tram driver- we very pleasant and helpful. Definitely a place we will visit again!

fun location

Wausau WI


We enjoyed our short stay at Pilot House and really took advantage of the fun location. Pilot House is just steps away from Baytown Wharf village, which includes lots of enjoyable restaurants and shops. Also appreciated the nice pool area.

nice stay

This place was better than expected. Super clean and beds very comfortable. There are lots of stores and restaurants downstairs, plus live bands in the evenings. There’s also a pool and hot tub if you want a break from the beach

Thank you for your review Cecilia! We are so glad you enjoyed staying in this unit and all of the amenities close by! We hope to have you back with us soon!

perfect location for walking to stuff in the village

New Iberia LA


This is a great location just steps from all the restaurants, night activities, marina, etc of Baytowne Warf. The studio is more aptly described as a hotel room, which was fine for us, as we just need a place to sleep. The one thing that would really improve this room would be getting rid of the bulky dresser and putting a long skinny dresser with enough surface area on top to have room to put stuff. The little area by the fridge is not even big enough for making sandwiches and filling up water bottles. We loved finding the door right next to the room that allowed direct acces to the garage and pool without having to walk the very long hallways. We didn’t use the shuttle bc leaving all the beach stuff in the car was easier and there is plenty of parking beachside right where the shuttle drops you off. We never left the resort for eating, as there are so many options. Really liked the free perks from Gibson and the apps. We love staying at Sandestin because we hate the Destin traffic. The resort is beautifully well kept and has so much to offer. Oh, and as others have mentioned, they definitely need more hooks for hanging stuff in the bathroom. This is a great budget friendly choice for those looking to stay at the fancy place, but not pay the fancy price!

the only downside was the parking was not reserved specifically for the condo complex.

Response from Gibson Beach Rentals, Inc.

Thank you so much for your review! We are glad ya'll had a blast :) Parking is always a pain in the rears (unfortunately), especially during major holiday weekends. We currently don't manage any properties that have assigned parking but are hopeful the Pilot House Association has a plan for the future with parking. We appreciate you letting us know your concerns and hope you can come visit with us again soon in the future!

great trip

Cordova TN


The room was perfect for our needs. It has a mini fridge, microwave and coffee maker - works great for a quick breakfast. Located at Baytowne- so you are convient to restaurants and low key night life without having to drive. The staff responded to any question very quickly.

Response from Gibson Beach Rentals, Inc.

That's so great to hear Alice! Thanks a million for your excellent review, we really appreciate it. We're thrilled y'all loved unit and it's amazing proximity to the Village. Come back & see us again soon!

The unit was exactly what we needed, it’s small but when you’re in Destin you stay inside!!

Response from Gibson Beach Rentals, Inc.

Exactly, no one comes to Destin to stay inside! We're happy the efficiency unit suited your needs and appreciate the 5-star review. Next time you visit, stay a little longer and maybe pick out a larger unit on the beach, so you can get the full effect. Be sure to mention our repeat guest discount!

snug-as-a-bug-in-a-rug ��

Gilmer TX


The room is a just cozy enough for 2 adults and 1-2 kids. Beds are SUPER comfortable. Bathtub is super deep if you like to take a bath. The price for this room was unbeatable and the rep I spoke to was super nice. Reservation process was super easy. Their downloadable app was very helpful!! The only downsides: no table or dresser. All your bags have to sit on the ground. (Unless the other bed isn’t in use.) There is one very small closet. And there is only 2 rolls of tissue provided and 4 towels. (We had to buy more tissue), and was glad I brought a few towels from home. The other thing, is this room is at the very end of 3-4 long hallways, which is a little inconvenient...We still very much enjoyed the place and would def stay again, but probably in a different room. The amenities at Baytowne Wharf were awesome. The sights and scenery are BEAUTIFUL!!

Response from Gibson Beach Rentals, Inc.

Thanks for the kind words Tera! We certainly appreciate it! We're super happy y'all loved the condo, even with the small nature. We appreciate your suggestions and will be happy to share with the owner. As is customary in vacation rental units, we do provide 2 rolls of tissue to get you started until you make a market trip; slightly different than a hotel. We're glad to know, in spite of the inconveniences, y'all had a great time and we'd love to have you back again!

good alternative to more expensive options

Sharpsburg GA


Overall, a good experience with 1 thing to be aware of. The first - when I originally booked the reservation in early 2018, I thought I was booking a 2 bedroom 2 bath with a small living room. In April, I went back to the site and realized when I read other reviews (that complained about misleading info about the rental) that I only rented the adjoining room, so 1 room, 1 bath. Originally I think they had a floor plan image of the entire “combined” rental, but at this point it is shaded properly to show the smaller area your actually renting. It worked out for me because it ended up only being me that stayed there, but if I there were 4 people it would have been “tight”. It looks like the info about the size of the accommodation has been updated to be more obvious about exactly what you’re getting, so hopefully this is a non-factor moving forward.
The online/app check in / check out, key access was very convenient and worked without any problems at all. Overall, as long as you know you’re getting 1 room with 2 beds and a bathroom for a pretty inexpensive rate (for Sandestin), you should be satisfied.

Response from Gibson Beach Rentals, Inc.

We're so happy to hear everything worked out for you Mike! Unfortunately we cannot guarantee how other marketing sites depict any of their listings. However, our website does have accurate information. This is why we always suggest to book direct with property management companies instead of marketing sites like vrbo. Thankfully, you had just what you needed and enjoyed your time here. Be sure to contact us directly next time you'd like to visit, we're happy to help!

very small but nice condo

Birmingham AL


We loved the Baytowne Wharf area and the location of the condo. However, it was very small and we didn't realize the actually size from the description before we arrived. There was only one mirror, no dresser or chairs, and really no extra room at all in the "condo". There is not a kitchen just a shelf area with a small fridge and a coffee maker. It would be more accurately described as a small studio rather than a condo.

Response from Gibson Beach Rentals, Inc.

We're sorry this particular unit didn't fit your needs Carolyn. Our website does have it listed as a studio and maybe next time we can help you find something else that would better suit you. Hopefully you were able to enjoy your time here. Thanks for choosing Gibson Beach Rentals.

perfect location!


Overall, it was a great stay. The unit was clean and the location was great. We rented our unit together with 330, so we had access to the patio directly from the joined unit. Otherwise, it would have been a bit of a walk to get to the pool. My recommendation is predicated on joining the units together. If you're not renting 330, I'd suggest choosing another unit.

Response from Gibson Beach Rentals, Inc.

Sounds like you had just the right 'fit' for your time here. Thanks so much for your review! We look forward to having you join us again soon!
