great weekend getaway

Cantonment FL


The unit was perfect for a weekend getaway. It was just steps away from the pool and fitness center. It was also just a short walk to Baytowne Wharf. The patio area was quiet and relaxing. The communication with the rental company (Gibson) was excellent. We would stay here again!

wonderful week in destin


My wife and I enjoyed our stay at Pilot House 330. Although my wife would have preferred to be closer to the beach, and I would have loved for the pool we were at to have been heated, we really enjoyed the short walk to Baytown and the Explorie package that came with our room. Ragatta Bay is a championship style course and to get to play that each day was fantastic.

quiet and close to the activity

Slidell LA


My family of 4 had a great time. The unit was clean and had a fully stocked kitchen. The unit was steps from the pool and fitness center. It was nice being within a quick walk to Baytowne Village. Something to take note of, there is a garage door entrance near the unit and you don't have to walk to the other end of the parking garage and then back down the long hall to the unit. Before our visit, the rental company called to let us know our washing machine was broken, which was nice of them to notify us. They brought us extra towels for our stay. During our stay, the unit did have alot of fruit flies in the kitchen and bathroom areas. I notified the rental company and I am sure they will address that. Overall it was a great condo.

perfect getaway

Little Elm TX


We absolutely love Sandestin and have been going for almost 10 years. We’ve stayed in many areas and the Pilot House area is our favorite. We like having a condo because I like to cook and live like a real Floridian. But if we want other food it’s great to be steps away from the restaurants and shops of Baytown Wharf.
This particular rental was nice because it was on the corner and secluded.

Response from Gibson Beach Rentals, Inc.

Thank you for this incredible review Heather. We're pleased to see you thoroughly enjoyed your stay in this unit. We're happy you loved the unit and its great location close to many restaurants and amenities. We're please to see that you received the true Gibson Beach Rentals 5-star experience we strive for everyday. We hope to have you stay with us again in the near future here on the beautiful Emerald Coast!

great location

Lawrenceville GA


It’s really a great location. End/corner unit. Walk right out Your back door into the pool or down to Baytown wharf. The walk from the parking garage to the room is a bit of a hike. Grab one of those luggage carts in the garage. Trust me on that. Bed was medium firm, clean and comfortable. The living room furniture was nice also. We would stay here again, no doubt. Epic place to stay for baytown wharf events also

Response from Gibson Beach Rentals, Inc.

Thank you for this kind review Robert. We love reading that you thoroughly enjoyed the unit and its close proximity to the beach, pool and Baytowne Wharf! We truly hope to have you stay with us again soon on the gorgeous gulf coast!

Perfect place for a weekend getaway. Everything is right there for you. The Pilot Hoise is in the middle of the resort and steps from the pool. The beach is a short tram ride away and food is all around the resort. Absolutely made it easy to have a good time.

beach trip

Millbrook AL


The Condo was great!It was very roomy and had everything we needed. We arrived and parked our car and we did not move it again till we left. Walk out the back door to the pool and work out room. Down the stairs to the Village. It had everything we needed. Restaurants and plenty of activities for the children. The tram ride to the beach was very convenient. We really enjoyed the Condo and all the amenities and will return again.

Response from Gibson Beach Rentals, Inc.

Yay! Thank you so much for this stellar review! We work so hard, and it's truly amazing to read your experience was amazing! Pilot House has that neat feature of being so close to the action, the huge pool, and having the beach tram that really makes it a one-stop-shop.

When searching for a place to stay on VRBO after hurricane Michael we sent an inquiry to management at Baytown Wharf. Brittany replied almost immediately and coordinated the stay with the greatest of care, concern and understanding. It was a most comfortable and restful stay with every need being met. We will definitely stay again and highly recommend Gibson Beach Rentals. Thanks again to Brittany for the terrific service!

awesome vacation

Shenandoah VA


We had a AWESOME vacation! The unit was great very clean. The pool was right out the back door. But with the little court yard it made it very private... Very close to all the amenities, restaurants and shops. Tom fished on the pier every morning caught some red fish for dinner. Tram to beach was great. If I were to change anything it would be. I would love for it to be pet friendly and to have a couple rugs one in the bathroom I slipped on the bathroom floor on the first day and one in front of the sliding door coming in from the pool and bigger TV in living room. It's the little things. We will definitely be back!!!

Response from Gibson Beach Rentals, Inc.

Pam we're terribly sorry to hear you slipped! We sure hope you're okay! We will definitely be happy to share your suggestions with the owners. We're so happy y'all loved the location, the condo and your time here on the Emerald Coast. We appreciate your review and look forward to having you join us again soon.

recent family getaway

Milan TN


We had an excellent time staying in the Pilot house. We had never stayed in that part of San Destin before. I loved the proximity to a private pool and access to the weight room. We never had a problem getting to the beach or finding parking. The room we stayed in was perfect for a family of four. Although the couch bed looked rather uncomfortable, my little boy had no problems. The king bed in the bedroom was very noisy to get in and out of. Other than that no complaints. Spacious, clean and very charming.

Response from Gibson Beach Rentals, Inc.

We're so happy y'all loved the condo and your time here on the Emerald Coast! Thanks for the info on the bed, we like to keep things as quiet as possible and are working on that today. We would have been happy to take a look while you were here, please let us know next time... that's what we're here for. Thanks for the 5-star review, we appreciate it!

private, clean, spacious & convenient condo in sandestin

Adairsville GA


This condo was exactly as pictured & advertised. No complaints, other than the bed is somewhat hard & the pullout sofa is not comfortable at all. Being an end-unit on the ground floor, it has a private side patio & is very convenient to the fitness facility & pool. The location is also very convenient to the Baytowne Village area. Additionally, if you need extra space to get ready while someone's occupying the bath, the fitness/pool bath is just a few steps away right outside the unit's patio 's almost like having two bathrooms.

Response from Gibson Beach Rentals, Inc.

We're so glad you enjoyed the condo and your time here on the Emerald Coast! Our apologies for the sofa sleeper, a brand new mattress has been installed last week. We appreciate your 5 star review and hope you visit again soon!

excellent condo

Peachtree City GA


I booked this condo very last minute and was thrilled to find it was very well maintained, with everything that a family of three would need. The kitche was very well stocked with all equipment I needed ( I love to cook, so this was important to me). It is a little difficult to tell from the photos but the condo has a very nice sized L shaped fenced in patio, with a gate that leads directly to the pool and gym. The pool is beautiful, and so convenient when you have little kids. You can't beat the location for shops and restaurants as well as plenty of activities for kids and adults alike. All in all a great stay and a very nice condo.
The only negative I would say were the extra fees added for "mandatory home insurance" and fees to the property management company which added approximately $250 to my total bill. I felt this was excessive.

Response from Gibson Beach Rentals, Inc.

We are so excited you all enjoyed the unit as well as the area! It is a perfectly situated location, isn't it?! I am sorry you feel the rental fees were excessive. We do list out our fees before booking so no one is surprised. We don't have any hidden extra charges after booking. These fees cover housekeeping, our amenities and services we provide to make sure our guests have a great experience. We appreciate you choosing Gibson Beach Rentals and we hope to have you return for your next Emerald Coast getaway.

Overall a very good resort experience. Great beach, clean well maintained property overall. The unit is very good for a couple or a small family. Generally well maintained. There is some noise from the AC units and driveway next door but it is tolerable. The furnishings could maybe use a bit of an update but are clean and functional.
