The check-in and out process was very smooth, which is an advantage of the pre-pay. The keyless option worked well making it easy to go to/from beach or anywhere else for that matter. The chairs and umbrella that were included made the time at the beach more comfortable. The maintenance staff responded relatively quickly to the plumbing issue in the kitchen.
I miss the view!

Great condo. The view outside the master bedroom window alone is worth the price of admission. This was one of those times where the online pictures really undersell how great this condo is. The only real qualm we had and this is really not Jade East's fault, is that traffic is really bad in the summer right outside the front entrance. It takes a while to get out!

The condo was fabulous! Beautiful view and very spacious! Loved having a grocery store practically across the street and we felt like we were in the middle of everything. The dishes in the cupboard weren't all clean, but we have learned over the years to wash the dishes before we use them in any condo. The utensils were cheap...broke the spatula flipping a burger. But other than that, very well stocked. The only bad thing about the condo was being only on the 5th floor, the teenagers would get in the hot tub late at night and you could hear everything they said and all the giggling as clear as day, even with all the doors closed! We also wished there was a volleyball net on the beach for the condo. We used the one next door, but it was hard always being used. Other than those little things...it was an awesome condo in a great location!

Twenty years in Destin during November, the last ten or so with Newman Dailey. They have been attentive to our every need. The good Lord willing we will spend the next twenty years with them.
My family wants to return to this same condo next year!!!

My children and I thoroughly enjoyed the Jade East 550 condo! We had plenty enough room and the room was situated in the perfect spot for viewing the beach and pool. We enjoyed the ease and access to the beach and pool. The condo was beautifully furnished and had all the amenities we needed for our week's stay. I was extremely impressed with the service from Newman-Daily. Last year we stayed at the Jade East, a different condo, but the facility was managed by some else. The service was good, except that we had no check in at the Jade East location. I am so glad we have the office now at Jade East. There were no problems with check in or check out. We love staying here and I am reserving this same condo for next year!

Lovely condo located right on the beach. Easy access to get down to the beach and we had beach chairs waiting for us each day. The condo was beautiful and clean and comfortable.

We came with two other couples and there was plenty of room. A great view of the beach and convenient to multiple activities. As far as faults, the dryer needs to be updated (doesn't dry towels very well). We are thinking about making this a yearly event. Oh, and liked the whole keyless thing.
Jade East was a great place to stay!

Unit 550 in Jade East was beautiful. The view overlooking the beach was great! The unit had everything and it was clean. My family was very pleased! The condo has the closest access to the beach that we had seen in a long time even when you compare it to more expensive places. Destin has grown so much over the years so you have to put up with some traffic but you just stay on the beach!!

We had a wonderful time in Destin at Jade East. The condo was very comfortable and accommodated us well. This time of year the beach is not crowded and it was still fairly warm so the kids could enjoy the beach and the pool. The water park was closed, but the track was open and the kids had a blast there. We also loved the dolphin cruise.
Great beachfront condo

This is a wonderful place to stay in Destin. It is great for kids and adults. There is plenty of entertainment close by for the kids and in the evenings there were local hot spots to go to. We were able to hire a babysitting service one night so the wife and I could spend a night together without the kids around. The condo provided us a safe, clean and comfortable place to stay.

I really like the location at Jade East Towers room 550. The only problems I encountered was that the master bathroom was not clean. The shower had mold and mildew and I had to clean before we could use it. The other problem was the dishes in the kitchen were dirty. I had to wash them before using and scrap food off of the pots and pans. They just need to be cleaned better since we are charged a cleaning fee, someone is not doing their job!!
Other than that, it was a wonderful location and nice place to stay.
A Pleasant Stay at the Florida Beaches
Reviewed on Thursday, August 18, 2011
The accommodations were pleasant and reflective of beach style living on the northern Florida coast. My wife and I brought friends from Europe to enjoy the stay; they were quite pleased with the accommodations, location, and wonderful Destin beaches.
Destin is gorgeous.

Destin was beautiful. The Jade is a nice place to stay. I felt safe with the kids knowing the property was gated and that the beach area for it was private. Room 550 was nice but does need some work. The toilet overflowed on day one but issue was resolved and management was very concerned. Many issues were fixed while we were there but the dryer never worked. It made it hard considering we had planned on having a washer/dryer accessible. Other than that it was a great vacation.

We have stayed at Jade East for 2 years now and really love it! The staff is great and so helpful and nice! Thank you to Jessica and Landra for your help and being so nice! You girls are wonderful! We have stayed in more than one unit here and have seen quite a few and they all are very nice and spacious-the staff keeps everything so clean and maintained. We had friends visit when we were staying there and now they want to stay there. We have stayed other places and continue to stay at Jade East. See you next year!

The view was awesome and the added services were great (free umbrella, golf, etc.). The beach service was outstanding. The condo was really nicely set up, but was in desparate need of repair (the siverware drawer was taped together, the dining room chairs were falling apart, mold growing on the ceiling in the main hall way, the dryer was squeeking, and the kitchen sink leaked big time).
I would without a doubt rent in Jade East again.
Unit 550 June 2009
Reviewed on Sunday, July 12, 2009
Jessica at check in was extremely helpful and nice. She got us in to the condo early as we were travelling with a baby. However, the condo, was not cleaned well. We found old popcorn kernels under the couch (which the baby found and put in her mouth) as well as small little yellow balls under the couch. The bathtub was not cleaned well. When we gave my daughter a bath there was a soapy film in the tub which was very slick. The hot water supply was also terrible. We had to wait to take showers despite the fact there were 3 bathrooms. I was extremely disappointed in this. The pool was beautiful as well as the beach and the ocean. They were very clean and well maintained. The condo, overall, was very nice. I was just disappointed that it was not more clean.

Great 1st time experience in Destin. Newman Daily made it easy with helpful and experienced staff ready to see that our needs, both before and after, were met. Great condo with lots of amenities. This first won't be our last.

All in all it was very nice and we had a great view. However the master bath was dirty and they were working on the tile on the 5th floor so we were unable to unload when we got there. We we not told about this. Also a few of the days we had to take the stairs because we could not walk on the tile. Very annoying.

The condo was more money than we usually spend when renting, so I was disappointed by the kitchen equipment. Very clean and otherwise nice.
