This two-bedroom, two-bathroom getaway about 50 miles east of Pensacola is the second of two condos on our list located on the white sand beaches of the Gulf Coast. Speaking of beaches, this seven-story complex backs up to a private beach, just steps away from the emerald green Gulf of Mexico. The unit comes fully furnished, with living-in-paradise touches throughout. From the living room and balcony, you'll be able to look out on the water. The kitchen has a nice breakfast bar, standard white appliances and solid-surface counter tops. Updates to the unit include ceramic tile and new appliances. You'll also find tennis courts and a pool. About three miles from the condo, you'll hit the Destin Harbor Boardwalk, with restaurants, water activities and charter fishing boats, a common sight in the city dubbed "the world's luckiest fishing village."
