About the property

We promise "Family Tides," our stunning 4 bedroom/ 4 bathroom lockout unit, is a diamond in the rough and will not disappoint! There is a lockout door installed in the dining room area of each condo to allow for a sharing, open experience to those who have large families, and has much more to offer than the typical beach home. When you rent this beautifully updated beachfront condo as the 4 bedroom/4 bathroom lockout option, you will have 2 separate living rooms, 2 separate kitchens (so double the appliances), two separate spacious balconies, and even 2 washers/dryers available for your use. Just imagine how quickly and easily the group can get ready for an outing with 4 full bathrooms! On top of all this, your group will also have free access to the newly renovated Tides amenities: basketball court, shuffleboard, mini golf, pickleball, pool-side Tiki bar and tennis courts!

Once inside each condo, you'll have the most comfortable furnishings with the following bedding types: 2 gulf front masters, both with 1 cozy king bed in each. In 204, you will enjoy 1 queen and 1 full bed in the guest room whereas in 205 your guests will have 2 full beds. Both units have sofa sleepers available for an overnight guest or two. Did we mention you have 2 HUGE, GULF FRONT balconies? Now the question is - what are you waiting for? Don't wait to book the only 4 bed/4 bath Gulf front option in Tops'l and Sandestin!

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.

- Secured, FREE WIFI
- 15 floors, 3 elevators + stairs
- Access to 2 Gulf front pools – building pool & resort pool

My family of 8 adults and 2 children had a great time at Tides 204-205 Lockout. The setup was perfect for everyone and the resort amenities were good. Although we did not have the perfect weather for our week long stay, we were still able to enjoy the beach and pool area and the location was good for enjoying local restaurants.

204-205 tide look out rooms

Appleton WI


We loved the views and the place was very clean! Pools could have been a little warmer and were not the cleanest. Location was good! Not many places to walk to but we loved to overlook the ocean:). Customer service was all really good through the Gibson rental, they got us and early rental and were really good about answering questions prior to our arrival.

Love Gibson Rentals! They are so easy to work with. I love that they allow you to check in early if the rental is ready! You don’t even have to ask, they just text you when the unit is ready! Tides is right on the beach and close to everything that we like to eat!

Lakeland TN


All was good but internet connection. I placed a service call on the morning after we got there and no one ever came to fix the modem. We had to use hot spots from our phone all week. That was very inconvenient.

Response from Gibson Beach Rentals, Inc.

Thank you for your review! We are happy to hear that you enjoyed your time with us, but are disappointed with the challenges you described regarding the internet connection. We strive to quickly resolve any issues you encounter during your stay, but it is clear that in this case, we fell short. Should you choose to stay with us again we would love the opportunity to give you the experience that so many of our guests have grown so fond of.

pretty view

Pewaukee WI


Nice and spacious condo. Furniture needs to be updated. We were told that the complex was going to be doing construction 3 days of our stay, but it was actually 5 days of loud construction noises. Pool bar and grill was great considering there really isn’t any where else to eat along the beach.

Response from Gibson Beach Rentals, Inc.

Thank you for taking a moment to leave us your feedback. Firstly, I would like to apologize for the construction noise you encountered. While Gibson Beach Rentals does not manage the unit undergoing renovations, we wanted to keep you updated with the information that was given to us. We are happy that you enjoyed the pool bar and grill, and will use your feedback to better our guest experience. We would love to welcome you back again soon!

perfect for a family

Germantown TN


We rented both units and it worked better than I thought. 2 kitchens and 2 dens give you the freedom to do something different while still being in the same space. The four bedrooms and four bathrooms work great with no inconvenience. The location on the gulf is close to everything while being the last resort on the beach. You just dont feel crowded and that is rare in destin.

Response from Gibson Beach Rentals, Inc.

Thank you for this amazing review Tim. We are so pleased to read that the Lockout option worked perfectly for you and your family. It seems the extra space, layout and the units' close proximity to both the pools and beach assisted in making your stay great! We truly hope to have you and your family stay with us again soon on the beautiful Emerald Coast!

nice place, beach deal stinks

Villa Rica GA


Overall we enjoyed the property, nothing elaborate but exactly what we needed. The lockout deal is very nice as we had babies in our party so we put the families with babies over there as it made it easier for the naps and such. Our only issue is the beach and how they have it set up. Basically Tides has contracted with a company to sale you chairs for the day or if you have your own stuff you have to go approximately 250 yards to a small area on the left or stay behind they myriad of chairs. When you have children in tow and the sand is blazing hot this is a true pain. Because of this I wouldn't stay here again although we loved the condo and the pools and having the bar area and restaurant right there was also very nice.

Response from Gibson Beach Rentals, Inc.

Thank you for your review. We are pleased to read that you loved the units. We apologize regarding the beach vendor issues that Tops'l resort provides. Unfortunately we cannot control how the beach vendors organize their business. We hope these issues did not deter you from having a wonderful stay. Next time we'd be happy to assist in picking a unit that better suits you and your family's needs.

great getaway!

Niceville FL


We stayed at Tides 204-205 for a quick getaway. We had a great time. The property is as described. There was plenty of room for everyone. Views were beautiful and access to beach and pool were convenient. Suggestions- Rent umbrella/ chair upon arrival so you are ready to go the next morning and don't have to wait in line. Unit needs a new coffee maker! :) Gibson Beach Rentals was great!!!

Response from Gibson Beach Rentals, Inc.

Thank you for taking the time to write this review Jennifer. We are so happy you and your family enjoyed the unit and the beautiful views! We're sorry the beach vendor was a hassle to deal with. Its great that next time you stay with us you can reserve them straight away! We appreciate your feedback regarding the coffee pot and will pass the information onto the appropriate parties. Its feedback like yours that helps us make improvements for our guests! We truly hope to have you and your family stay with us again soon on the gorgeous Emerald Coast!

great for a large group

Henderson KY


Units 204 and 205 housed a group of 14 women and children for us on a family trip. While we originally wanted a house on the beach, this setup proved to be just what we needed. We had plenty of space, and lots of amenities. These units were steps from the elevator and also had a great view of the ocean and pool. The on-site grill, bar, and pools were a great option for staying on the property. Off of the property, we were surrounded by close restaurants and shopping.

Response from Gibson Beach Rentals, Inc.

Hi Vickie thank you for the awesome review! We are so thankful you chose Gibson Beach Rentals to host your family vacation as well as for choosing TIDES 204 & 205! We are glad everything was perfect and are excited to have ya'll back down again soon. Remember to book direct with GBR, and we can help save you some money!

The rental was exacltly what we wanted for our vacation, with the number of guests we had for this visit. The condo was spacious and clean, with the beach in very close proximity to our unit. Also, the location was ideal to local restaurants and shops along HWY 98 and 30A. We would rent this again.

Great experience staying at the Tides Lockout property. Everything ran very smoothly from check-in to check-out. The condo was clean, well-stocked, and in a great location.
