Mainsail condo description

In this beautiful Gulf-front unit, there is absolutely nothing between your terrace and the sugar-white sandy beach -- the entire unit is bathed in the soft blue-green glow of the Gulf waters, and the sound of the waves will lull you to sleep at night. It's no wonder our guests return year after year. The carpeted master suite has a king-size bed, reading nook, TV, DVD player, dressing room and full bathroom including Jacuzzi. The carpeted guest bedroom has two double beds, HDTV, VCR, and full bathroom. The living room has HDTV, DVD player, stereo, and wet bar with stone-tile floors. The 65-foot wrap-around terrace is accessible from the living room, dining room and master bedroom. The separate dining room, adjoining the kitchen, has seating for six with two window walls overlooking the Gulf. The completely equipped kitchen with all new appliances, granite countertops, stone tile floors, new cabinets, and new washer and dryer will make this a carefree vacation.

Mainsail is a secure gated community on 15 lush, landscaped acres directly on broad, sugar-white sandy beach. The property includes two pools (one heated), waterfall, hot tub, kiddie pools, four lighted tennis courts, fitness center, barbecue grills, and shuffleboard. The whole complex is ideal for families, with lots of safe space for children to play. This condo is the very front unit on the third floor in the building closest to the water, offering panoramic views of the Gulf of Mexico from nearly every room.

Area attractions appeal to every member of the family, including 25 golf courses within 14 miles, chartered deep-sea fishing, para-sailing, art galleries, the Gulfarium Marine Museum, the Track Amusement Park, Big Kahuna's water park, many wonderful restaurants, shopping, mini golf and water parks. Mainsail is conveniently located across from Silver Sands, the South's most popular designer outlet mall.

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2012

                  About the owner: Hi y'all! We are Bob, Suzanne and Jason Young from Tuscaloosa, Alabama. We are the new owners of Mainsail 131. We have been guests at Mainsail for almost 30 years. We are so excited to, finally, have a Mainsail condo our family can enjoy and we can share it with YOURS. We hope that all of the Kroll's guests, as well as new friends, will continue to stay with us for many years to come. In our search for a condo to purchase, I can tell you without reservation that Mainsail's oceanfront units, with their 65 foot wrap around balconies and wall of windows offer one of the most, if not THE most, amazing views on the Emerald Coast. We have visited so many complexes and none, in our opinion, even comes close. We think we have a unique perspective with regard to the guests who visit the condo. For so many years, we WERE guests and think we know what you require and what makes you happy. That is our desire, when we are not able to enjoy the condo, we want you to feel it is YOUR home away from home. Since our year-round home is close by, our plan is to update and refresh the condo little by little as we visit over the next several months/years. We hope you will want to visit and enjoy our new additions. What I can assure will ALWAYS be waiting for you... unchanged, year after year... is that gorgeous view and the relaxing sound of the surf just outside your door. The sea is calling... please come visit us soon.

                  Why the Owner Chose Mainsail:
                  Destin offers the most beautiful beaches in North America, perhaps the world. I love the slow and easy pace of life in this quintessentially Southern town, still full of its old fishing-village charm. So many wonderful restaurants, fabulous shopping, sport fishing, great golf and lovely people make this a wonderful place to visit, which is probably why my guests and I return year after year. Mainsail Resort is located directly on the beach -- no roads to cross, no traffic to dodge -- with 15 lushly landscaped acres. So if you never left the property, you'd still find plenty of things to do, between tennis, two pools, jacuzzi and that fabulous beach. Then, when you just have to have some shopping time... Silver Sands, a destination shopping mall, is directly across new Hwy. 98 from the condo. What they don’t have you don’t need. One doesn’t need to leave the mall parking lot for lunch, either... there is Cheeseburger in Paradise, Panera Bread and Carrabbas’s Italian Grill and you’ve hardly left “home”.

                  The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
                  No doubt about it, the view of the Gulf from this beachfront condo is the first thing everyone mentions. The first time I saw the blue-green Gulf waters and the sugar-white sands just outside the windows and visible from just about every room, I knew I had to have this place for myself and each time I return I get that same old thrill -- it never gets old! Add to that the sound of the waves to lull you to sleep, the casual but beautiful beachy decor that reflects the colors of the Gulf, the morning dolphin sightings from the deck...and you have a place that will call you back again and again.
