Mainsail condo description

This is the fourth floor, gulf front, end unit in the building closest to the gulf. The entire unit is on the gulf, with panoramic views of the gulf from every room.

There is a full surround deck, running 70 feet along the gulf. We have just fully renovated this unit with new cabinetry throughout and granite countertops. Professionally decorated with a large dining room for family dinners.

This is truly a beautiful unit, with some of the nicest views available in Destin. You are just steps from the elevator and then a few more steps, and you are on the beach. The views are so nice that you will feel like you are on the beach, before you even leave the condo.

                After staying in one of the condos last year and loving the facility, we decided to take the kids there again this year and it did not dissappoint again. The condo was fully furnished with everything you need and the view was excellent. The beach is beautiful and wonderfully kept up. The facilty is wonderful with all the ammenities needed to have a great vacation with family. We will be back!

                The condo had a spectacular view of the ocean. The condo was clean and well kept. The veranda allowed views from front and side of the condo. Everything needed to enjoy our vacation was included. Miramar Beach is our favorite area to vacation and the condo we stayed in didn't disappoint us. It just supported our decision to stay in Miramar Beach again next year.

                My husband and I were fortunate enough to spend a couple of months this winter in this unit. We just can't say enough about our experience there. The view was spectacular with windows in the eating area, kitchen, living area, and master bedroom overlooking the Gulfof Mexico and the beautiful white beach We could watch the sunrise and sunset without leaving our condo. The unit itself was furnished tastefully and comfortably. The pictures on the website can't do it justice. We had everything that we might need (including sand toys for our grandchildren when they came for a visit). The owner was great to deal with and answered any questions that we had. We could walk to the outlet mall from our unit and there were lots of restaurants nearby that we enjoyed trying. Mainsail itself is a great complex. There is an activity room where we enjoyed meeting others, an exercise room, game room, and two pools. We would definitely recommend this unit to anyone. We plan on returning next year!!

                This property was awesome. The views are amazing and the condo is top notch. The Mainsail location is ideal (within easy walking distance of Silver Sands mall and there are lots of restaurants close-by). The Mainsail complex is beautiful. Destin beaches are the best and you cannot get much closer to the beach than this condo. The owners were great. Everything went like they said it would and without a hitch. I love that the condo has a keypad and not a card reader to get into it. That was extremely convenient.

                First words walking through the door of this condo..."Wow!"...the view from this unit is priceless. There are 4 sets of sliding doors in this condo...the windows wrap around from the dining room to the Master Bedroom. You can clearly see this in the pics but they do not do it justice. The condo has been beautifully updated...the kitchen has everything you will need for home cooked meals...my son especially enjoyed the electric drink/shake mixer...we brought chairs but realized that we didn't need them as there were already beach chairs in the condo for our use and many sand toys for little ones. The elevator is just outside the door to the condo so just a short ride downstairs to the boardwalk and you're on the sand. Mainsail has very good security so we always feel safe when staying here. Although temperatures were not condusive to swimming during our stay we did enjoy the heated pool and the sauna. The owners were very nice to work with, the communication with them was smooth and I felt that they truly cared about our vacation. Overall, I would highly recommend this unit to friends and family and would ofcourse choose it again for my own vacation. Thanks Greg and Lori, you have a real jewel on the Emerald Coast!

                This condo is absolutely wonderful!!! The unit itself was beautifully furnished and very clean when we arrived. I was blown away by the kitchen....the owners thought of everything one might need! We've stayed in several very nice rentals and this one had the Very Best equipped kitchen that I have ever seen!! I felt like I was at home. The master bedroom is vey large with extra seating to enjoy that awesome view and the bed was extremely comfortable. Our 2 sons said their beds were comfortable as well. The two bedroom closets are large and very well organized with shelving, baskets, etc., so there's plenty of room to unpack everything (& dressers). Having a washer and dryer in the unit is great too. The dining room table is great because it is large and we had plenty of room (with great views too). The views are Amazing!! Every morning and night we got to enjoy both the beautiful sunrise and sunset either from the balcony or even from inside the unit because of the large glass doors/windows. As usual in Destin, the water is gorgeous and the beach is super clean. Even with the doors shut, you could still enjoy the sounds of the waves - aaahhh! Sitting on the balcony is great - there's nothing more relaxing than gazing at the ocean and waves. Another huge plus to this condo is the location. It's right across the street from Silver Sands Outlet and there are restaurants everywhere close by. Destin Commons Mall is also fairly close and easy to get to. Also two Walmarts in either direction that are not long drives. What I loved was the fact that there is a Winn-Dixie across the street...it's less than a one minute drive and you can take a back way in and avoid the main road - how convenient is that? There isn't anything that isn't close by and right off the main road including pharmacies, Starbucks and anything else you can imagine. This unit is close to the elevator and trash chute which is convenient too. My husband made the all the arrangements with Greg and he was a pleasure to work with. He was extremely nice and very accommodating! The owners definitely put alot of thought into what guests might need while on vacation and the condo is very well provided with supplies/etc. We would love to stay at this condo again - it's been our favorite condo so far. I would recommend this condo to anyone wanting to have a great time in Destin! Thank you Greg and Lori for the use of your condo - we had a wonderful vacation in your condo.

              About the owner: We looked around alot before we bought our unit, and we picked this one because the views were head and shoulders above anything else we had seen. You are looking at the gulf from just about every spot in the unit. We also liked that Mainsail is a gated community, with 24 hour on site security.
