About the property

Tides 1511 is a little slice of paradise so many people love to return to year-after-year. A full kitchen and dining area share amazing beach views - who wouldn't love cooking dinner inside while hearing the waves crash on the beach? The spacious living room adjoins the dining area and shares in similar views. A nice big HDTV greets guests who get amped up about not missing a beat with their favorite sports team. Direct access to the balcony is available in the living area; this unit has one of the biggest balconies in the building and is so special to us. Don't worry about getting sandy but still be able to catch some rays or watch that gorgeous sunset from high up. Back inside you have two bedrooms: the master with a king and guest room with a queen. Both have access to their own separate bathrooms (master being the biggest - includes a tub and walk-in shower). A washer and dryer are in the unit as well, just in case you need. So, what are you waiting on? Let's go on vacation!

The Tops’l Beach and Racquet Resort is conveniently located 10 miles east of Destin in the Miramar Beach/Sandestin, FL area. The resort offers fun and relaxation for all ages and also provides a quiet, secluded peace of mind while being only minutes away from activities, shopping, dining, and so much more! The Tides building is beachfront – only a few quick steps until your tired feet set foot on the white, sandy beaches. A nature preserve calmly sits to your East allowing for gorgeous scenery and glimpses of wildlife as well as far less-crowded beaches.

overall it was very positive. Beautiful view and the property was very clean.
we had difficulty in our room getting the cable to connect to the TV. We had several people try and for 2 full days we had no TV. finally someone rerouted the system so we could watch. everyone was very helpful but a very frustrating issue.

one night stay



We booked this condo after staying in Beachside 2 for 4 nights. We needed to stay an extra night and this became available. It was spectacular! Very clean and up to date, and the view was fantastic! So wished we could have stayed longer and definitely will look for availability in the future. The booking staff were very accommodating in finding this for us and very pleasant to work with. I only have one complaint, and that was that a Fitbit watch I left there was never found.
We loved the restaurant, pools, and chair rental was much less expensive and crowded than at the Beachside 2.

Response from Gibson Beach Rentals, Inc.

We are so glad we were able to fit your accommodations. We did reach out to the cleaners and inspectors, unfortunately they were unable to locate the Fitbit. We certainly hope you come back to stay with us in the future!

Simpsonville SC


This was our first trip to Destin, this location was perfect! Close enough to the fast paced, crowded part of Destin, but away enough to feel separate. The condo was clean (other than random objects in closets) and perfect amount of room for us, the balcony was AMAZING!!!!!!!!!!!! The property was so clean, and well kept. We loved the two pools - having the opportunity to be separate from younger children and the bar/restaurant was fabulous. Next time we won't pack chairs - MUCH better to rent. We will be back - wonderful stay!

We are so glad to hear you had an amazing stay and we look forward to having you back in the future!

We had a great stay! Everything was clean. We are big on the beach so easy access to the beach was one of our biggest needs and this place was perfect. The pool was nice with a bar/grill right there at the pool. Very close to everything you could need. Would stay again! With regard to the management company, Gibson was great and so easy to work with. I will be calling them again next time as well!

We loved the condo! African safari theme and all! Beds were comfy, furniture was nice/ new and comfy. The accommodations were perfect! stunning view from front and back doors... be careful of the wind when the back door is open. Almost chopped off my daughters finger! (front door slams shut with the wind). Had one issue with TV and they were there to help in minutes.

Response from Gibson Beach Rentals, Inc.

Thanks for your glowing review of Tides 1511! We are so glad you enjoyed your stay, and definitely stay tuned as the new Owners plan on making some upgrades throughout the year! We are so, so glad your daughter is safe -- always have to be careful with balcony doors and front doors being open as it creates a vacuum and something slams somewhere. Again, we are super happy to hear everyone is in one piece! Thanks for letting us take care of you guys and hope to see ya'll real soon again!

The stay at the Tides was very relaxing. The beach and pool area was not as crowded compared to other resorts we have stayed at in Destin. Price was very reasonable. My only compliant, the floors in the unit was not clean. You could tell housekeeping spot mopped the floors.

Response from Gibson Beach Rentals, Inc.

We are so glad ya'll had a great time! Tops'l Resort is a special gem bordering the Nature Preserve on the East side so we tend to see less crowds there since there aren't buildings packed in on every side. We are so sorry that the floors didn't meet your standards, and it's definitely something we take very seriously. We have a service order made to ensure they are sparkling clean for the next guest -- always let us know if anything is bothering you so we can address it immediately. We hold ourselves to a high standard and don't want a single guest disappointed! Make sure to book direct with us again next year to receive your return guest discount!

Had a great time. Condo was really nice. Spare bedroom bed was not the greatest and the living room furniture needs to be replaced. Pullout sofa was rather dirty. But overall, had a great time and would def stay again.

Response from Gibson Beach Rentals, Inc.

John we are terribly sorry to hear this! We pride ourselves on the cleanliness of our units. We wish you had notified us right away so we could have made it right for you. We will also share your opinion of the furniture with the owners. Next time you'd like to visit, give us a call and let us help you find a unit better suited for you.

Charlotte NC


Enjoyed a great stay at the Tides at Tops'l. This condo was in an excellent location on the top floor and had a huge balcony. You can easily view the Gulf, the Bay and the spectacular sunsets all in one view. The condo itself was lovely and very much as advertised. I especially enjoyed the large master bathroom with the TV. It may benefit from a couple of places to hang your towel, but that would not prevent me from returning. Great location away from the majority of the crowds and close proximity to the nature preserve which offers a pristine beach for walking. Will definitely reserve from Gibson again!

Response from Gibson Beach Rentals, Inc.

Thanks! It really sounds like ya'll had the perfect vacation! We love the Tops'l Resort for the same quiet reasons as you. Come back next year and refer to this reservation for your return guest discount!

Canadian Lakes MI


We really enjoyed our visit to Sandestin, and Tides 1511 was very nice. If we were to come again, we would prefer to stay on a lower level and more toward the front of the building, as the patio was very cool until mid-afternoon when the sun came around to our side of the building. The view, however, from our level was fantastic!

Response from Gibson Beach Rentals, Inc.

I'm so glad we had a very mild winter, know you were chilly on your balcony. Give us a call for a return visit and we can try to find a unit on the other side for you. We're glad you enjoyed your time here and look forward to your return.

Fabulous, comfortable, great view, well equipped, photos on-line are exactly as the rental is, quiet, and on and on... I would definitely come back again to this rental!! I couldn't wait to get up and have my coffee on the patio each morning!! I loved walking out the door and right onto the beach!! The only thing I would change was the key pad to get in was outdated. We had to keep track of keys vs typing in a code and the door unlocking!!

Thank you for your review. We're happy that you really enjoyed your stay here and in Tides. We'll surely press to the owner to update the lock as we agree completely with it's ease-of-use.

Very nice unit with lots of room. It could use an update on the electronics as the tv's are old and the huge stereo system does not work. We had a convention next door at the Hilton and had there been an access way between the two our stay would have been a 10. Having to trek the beach or drive all the way around for meetings and socials was a pain. Appliances are fairly new and the kitchen was well stocked. Pool area and beach were very nice with good food and drinks available. Overall it was a great stay and very convenient to restaurants and stores. An easy 4 out of 5 stars!

Response from Gibson Beach Rentals, Inc.

We are glad that you enjoyed your stay :) Thank you for your awesome feedback! We have addressed the electronics issue and we will look into upgrading. We also apologize about the trek back and forth to the Hilton. Don't forget to grab your return guest discount next time you book with us. The beach is calling your name again you again soon!

Condo was updated an overall nice, but a huge issue was the key situation. Why doesn't the unit have a keypad lock on the door for easier access? Would be hesitant to stay there if another unit with a keypad lock was available.....

Response from Gibson Beach Rentals, Inc.

Thank you for taking the time to give us feedback on your recent stay with us. We use this information to discuss ratings and information with our team and our owners. We manage over 75 properties on Sandestin and Tops'l resorts and most of our owners have upgraded to the keyless entry "Kaba" locks, however, there are still a few of our units that still use a coded lock box with keys inside but your feedback will be shared with these owners so they can see this is what our guests desire and we are always striving to exceed your expectations. We look forward to seeing you again next year with your repeat guest discount of course and we have many condos available with keyless entry to choose from and perhaps the owners will change to a keyless entry before your return after receiving your feedback! Thanks again.
