Vacation rental company takes top position in two categories of magazine’s annual poll

Wyndham Vacation Rentals®, the world’s largest professionally managed vacation rental business and part of the Wyndham Worldwide family of brands (NYSE: WYN), was named the "Best Vacation Rental Company/Service Firm" on the Emerald Coast for the fifth year in a row by Emerald Coast magazine readers. In addition to the Company being recognized, TOPS’L Beach & Racquet Resort, a Wyndham Vacation Rentals® managed property, was recognized as the “Best Tennis Facility” — a new category to the magazine’s annual poll.

Each year, readers of Emerald Coast magazine cast votes for their favorite Northwest Florida businesses for the "Best of the Emerald Coast" awards. The results of this year's voting were recently published in the magazine's October/November issue.

“We’re incredibly proud to be recognized as the top service provider for five consecutive years by members of the local community, who know our staff on a personal level and see the quality of service we provide year-round,” said Lino Maldonado, vice president of operations, Wyndham Vacation Rentals. “With guests also voting TOPS’L the 'Best Tennis Facility,' this year’s recognition is even more significant for our team.”

This year's winners will be on display at an event held on Saturday, October 19 at Grand Boulevard, located at 185 Grand Boulevard in Destin, Fla.
