Mainsail condo description

Two bedrooms; 2 bathrooms; living room; 50 foot front balcony with connecting side balcony; dining room; full kitchen; laundry area; sleeps up to 8; SEE ACTIVE LINK FOR CONDO VIDEO

Mainsail is located in a family friendly community with beach, shopping and eating places within walking distance. Mainsail resort complex is located directly on the beach with no roads to cross to get to Gulf.

Two bedroom condominium sleeps up to 8 people in beds. Pak N Play available for small children. This beach front condo on the third floor has a rare 70 foot wrap around balcony that gives you an unobstructed 270 degree view of the crystal white beach, emerald water and surrounding area – they just don’t make balconies like this anymore! Whether it is a volleyball game on the beach, pelicans fishing in the surf, dolphins playing in the emerald water, fishing boats leaving Destin harbor, or a beautiful setting sun; you can view it all from the wrap around balcony that can be access from the living room, dining room and master bedroom. It is also great for catching the sun rise with early morning coffee, watching beach activities, sunbathing, reading, hanging out or enjoying evening cocktails as you watch the sun drop into the fire-red waters. You can dine al fresco on the side balcony, and watch the moon, surf and stars after dark.

                          Destin, Florida area is known for the whitest sand on the planet. The clear emerald waters and mild climate make it a vacationer's dream. Deep sea fishing, golf, swimming, sunbathing, shelling, bird watching, shopping and eating out are activities that can be enjoyed every day. The Destin area has all of the ingredients for the perfect family vacation. Across from Mainsail is Silver Sands, one of the largest discount shopping malls in the USA. Restaurants, ATM, groceries, drugstores, shopping, banks, etc. are within walking distance. Twenty-plus mile paved bike/pedestrian trail running from the city of Destin on the west to the village of Seaside on the east just outside Mainsail gate.

                          Mainsail condo 231 is true beachfront in the center of the action, with a spacious 70 foot wrap around balcony that has a wide angle unobstructed view of the Gulf 24/7/365.

                          Owner info

                          Year Purchased: 1985

                          About the owner: In 1985 we were a family of 5 that enjoyed vacationing in Destin with our family and friends. As our children grew up, the beach provided an ideal venue to connect with them and the grandkids without the distractions of Atlanta. We have enjoyed ALL of the activities available in and around Mainsail. Our family has now grown to 14, and we still enjoy sharing time with our family and friends here at the condo on the beach.

                          Why the Owner Chose Mainsail:
                          When we were first married, we moved to Pensacola and for the next 10 years we fell in love with the beautiful beaches in the Florida panhandle. After being away for about 15 years, we returned to Atlanta and re-discovered the beaches in the Destin area. The Mainsail complex had just one building at that time, so when they built the next three buildings we decided that we must have a beachfront condo at Mainsail. We chose unit 231 primarily because of its location right on the beach with a balcony that over looks the white sand and the beautiful blue green water. The third floor location is perfect as it is an easy walk up the stairs and high enough to see a panoramic view of the beach and surrounding area.

                          The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
                          We have enjoyed many adventures from Gulf shores (Alabama) to Mexico Beach (East of Panama City) while staying at Mainsail. After all of these years, we still cannot decide whether we prefer the sandy beach or the swimming pools ( the heated North pool is REALLY NICE in the winter.) We have enjoyed fishing from Destin harbor; sailing in the gulf and bay; we have even had a wedding on the beach with a reception at one of the pools. It is always fun to go out to eat, whether it is seafood or a steak at one of the excellent restaurants nearby. And having a take-out pizza or boiled shrimp with a good wine on the balcony is not a bad way to watch the sun dive into the Gulf at sunset.
