Overall really good stay. Great location and very clean. Easy in and out. The beds are quite firm, which is a plus or minus depending on your preference. Everything in the condo is dated — furniture, rug, bathrooms, kitchen. I saw other units that were much more current.

great experience

Ooltewah TN


Tides 204 is very welcoming with a wonderful view of the ocean. The condo was spotless which was very important to us. The king size bed was quite comfortable and also the master bedroom has a fabulous ocean view. Gibson Rentals was extremely accommodating and responsive. The few minor issues we experienced were handled promptly and professionally. All the Gibson staff are very helpful and pleasant. The resort location is handy to a Publix and Walmart and not far from some very good restaurants. This was our second stay at Tops’l Resort and first with Gibson Rentals. We hope to be back soon for a third visit using Gibson Rentals.

Response from Gibson Beach Rentals, Inc.

Thank you so much for taking the time to provide feedback. We are so delighted that you rate our service as 5 star as we strive to provide just that for all our customers. We Look forward to seeing you again soon. Best Wishes.

Our experience with Tides 204 and Gibson could not have gone any better. The rental group is very commutative and responds to any concerns or need for information. Check in/out is a breezy, all information provided without issue. The condo itself is very well kept and maintained. Beds and sheets are comfortable, plenty of AC, and of course it is a great location. Will use again!

GREAT location. We’ve stayed in this building before but not this specific condo. We had an amazing view even just one the second floor overlooking the pool and the ocean. And it was so convenient especially having an almost 1 year old to be able to go back and forth to the room from the pool/beach for naps, etc. condo was very clean/presentable.

Everything was perfect. Was able to get in to our unit early everything was very clean and well laid out, and the arrival mini cooler and coupon books where a plus! Was able to use the free activities pass for both fishing and horseback riding! I caught over 25 fish on the princess. That crew did an amazing job and I highly recommended it.

Statham GA


overall it was very good. The condo was clean and inviting. The complex was great along with the pool area. The only thing was the actual beach area is not very large for the amount of people coming to the beach area during the day.

Response from Gibson Beach Rentals, Inc.

Thanks so much for letting us know how your past stay was at Tides 204. These Owners take special care of their unit, and we are happy to hear housekeeping didn't disappoint! We hope you enjoyed the extra amenities and the relaxing vacation you've been planning for. Sometimes our beaches do get a little busy as so many guests flock to our gorgeous, powder white beaches while the sun is shining. We hope to see you again and provide an experience you won't forget!

pool and beach lover


My husband and I really enjoyed this immaculate and tastefully decorated condo.The living room sofa is uncomfortable so we didn't use it. We loved the ocean front view and the balcony. My favorite things were the travortine flooring (just gorgeous) and the marvelous pools that were the cleanest of any I have swam in. And, kudos to the person or person who cleaned this condo. WOW!!! Very impressive.The beds were comfortable but had too much comforter which made it hot but loved the ceiling fans. I realize you didn't ask about beach problems but I need to mention this since it has NEVER happened to us before and we have been coming to Destin for 10 years. On Tuesday after everyone went home Labor Day the insects (FLIES) were trying to have my husband and me for lunch.He was bitten about 5 times and they brought blood. He killed about 15 and I killed at least 5 flies and we gave up and didn't go back to the beach the next day. We wonder if the beach is ever graded with a front loader or tractor to push leftover snacks and drinks from beachgoers under the sand. We never had a problem in condos up closer to The Big Kahuna Water Park area. Sorry but I just needed to let you know so something maybe can be done before next Labor Day arrives.Other people complained also. We enjoyed cooking in the nice kitchen and we had everything we needed. There was plenty of room and storage space. Loved the beautiful tiled bathrooms. There was a slight problem with the front door but it was promptly repaired. Thank you! Had great weather and no major complaints. Everyone on staff was very pleasant and we were very pleased they were enforcing the rules and keeping everything clean and SAFE.Thank you for sharing your terrific condo with us.

Response from Gibson Beach Rentals, Inc.

Thanks a billion for your review - how insightful and full of detail :) We believe you may be referring to what's known as the North flies; when a cool front comes in from the North, the wind often times brings black flies to the Panhandle, pushed out from the forests and waterways North of us. Our beaches are cleaned every morning which is why you might see signs scattered throughout indicating to travelers to not leave anything on the beaches. In fact, most beaches in Florida don't do this in great pride and leave setups out, hardly ever cleaning their beaches. South Walton invests a great deal of time and resources into making sure we have the best beaches! We wish there was more to do with the North flies, but that's one of the few negatives about living at the beach! Again, thanks so much for leaving this review. You've hit this unit spot on with the updates and attention the Owner has provided for the unit. They take great pride and care in the property which truly shows in the end. We look forward to seeing you all again soon :)

My husband, his parents, and our one year old daughter stayed in this condo for a week. Everything was perfect! It's difficult to find a condo that will accmodate 4 adults but this condo has 2 queen beds in the guest room vs bunk or twin beds. The view is gorgeous. The condo had everything we needed including super comfy beds. I will definitely stay here again. The staff was also extremely attentive to anything we needed.

We had an awesome week at Tides 204. Two couples shared a 2 BR/2 BA unit. We found it to be exceptionally well-maintained, clean, and comfortable.

The best condo we have stayed in. The pictures are good and the description is accurate. The end of the condo is glass, the view is the pool, and the beach. The place was clean, and ready for guest. We hope to go back. We spent most of our time on the beach and in the water, the beach access was great. The weather was great. Probably our favorite place to eat was Bayou's Bills, good sea food, good staff.
