Property description

When you open the door to our beautiful POOL SIDE condo, one thought will enter your mind, …… “Wow!! Now I am REALLY on vacation!” This 1BR condo offers personalized additions that set it apart from the rest! Located on the ground floor of Luau II, it is located POOL SIDE and, with floor to ceiling windows throughout, every room offers breathtaking views of the award winning 4300 sq. ft. Luau saltwater pool and waterfall. You are literally steps away from the action, but with sound-proof windows and black-out curtains, pure privacy is equally achievable. It is absolutely the best location available in Luau! This is the largest 1BR floor plan offered and is SUPER roomy. Upgraded amenities include keyless entry (no standing in line for check-in), a full kitchen with tile and granite countertops, full-sized electric range with a 4 burner cook top, full sized microwave oven, full sized refrigerator/freezer with automatic icemaker (very important on those balmy beach days!), dishwasher, washer/dryer, SoundSpa clock/radio/iPod in BR, and two televisions (one flat-screen) and DVD players (in LR and BR) with upgraded stereo sound and remote iPod dock in Living Room. In keeping with the local flavor, guests will enjoy a relaxing, beach inspired motif which is carried throughout with elegant, inviting furnishings and personal touches that make the unit feel like your very own 'home away from home.' With a king-sized bed, a pull out queen sofa bed in the Living Room, a pull-out full sofa bed in the Living Room, and separate living/dining areas, we can comfortably accommodate a family of six, with plenty of room left over for additional portable bedding. Floor to ceiling sliding glass doors are your gateway from the living area to your large, private, poolside patio where you can enjoy preferred western sunset views of which no two are the same, yet all are spectacular (did somebody say, “Margaritas?”). If the beach is what you are longing for, Sandestin's private beach is a 3 minute stroll down a private path. For your added convenience, we have also stocked our owner's closet with beach chairs, umbrellas, boogie board, beach toys, coolers, and two sets of golf clubs for your exclusive and unlimited use throughout your stay.

If this condo is a little big for your party, please check out our unique studio unit with full kitchen (it is the only studio in Luau with a full kitchen), VRBO #287470.

It is our desire that each of our condos is a place where guests can realize a unique and memorable vacation experience that will keep them coming back year after year. Therefore, luxury and convenience, coupled with a true desire to anticipate every need of the guest, are of the utmost importance. We feel confident those aspirations have been met and we invite you to come feel the inspiration only a place so beautiful can bring….the sand looks like sugar, the sea like emeralds and the sunsets like heaven.

Luau is the newest of Sandestin’s luxury beachside properties. Located across the street from Finz restaurant and a stone's throw to the world-renowned beaches, Luau combines elegance and simplicity with its Asian-inspired feel. Luau is located just across the street from the Sandestin Hilton.

Nestled on 2,400 acres of spectacular beaches and bayfront, Sandestin is like a world of its own. Sandestin guests don’t have to be a kid to act like one. Indulge in endless resort amenities, from four championship golf courses – making it one of the top Florida golf resorts, 15 world-class tennis courts, full-service marina, water sports, charter sailing and fishing, boutique, designer and outlet shopping, fine and casual dining, state-of-the-art fitness centers, professional salon and day spa and fun children’s programs. In addition, the Village of Baytowne Wharf, on the bayside of the resort, brings another dimension to Sandestin's incredible popularity with endless choices of restaurants and entertainment. Also on the bay side of the resort is the Grande Boulevard area which includes additional restaurant and shopping choices, as well as a Publix shopping center. Sandestin is truly the premiere vacation playground on the Emerald Coast!

DO NOT FALL FOR THE AMENITIES CARD MYTH! The Resort will charge you 12% of the total charge for your stay for access to Resort amenities (not an optional charge). IT IS NOT FREE! If booking through the Resort you will pay a fee for most 'free' amenities, even after paying for the amenities card.

We provide many items to our guests for free (really free). However, for those we do not provide, all guests are given a list of local contacts who can provide you with many activities/services at a rate lower than the Resort will charge you for those same 'free' services.

For example; beach Set-ups are $30 per day, per person through the Resort and include chair and umbrella. We provide all of our guests unlimited use of our beach chairs, umbrella, beach toys and cooler for free!

Resort guests pay the 12% fee for access to Sandestin Fitness Center and Pools. The Luau fitness center and pool is FREE and is restricted to Luau guests only, so no overcrowding and heightened level of security.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2011

About the owner: We've lived in the area since 1971, always enjoyed the beach, fishing and water sports.

Why the Owner Chose Luau:
We purchased in Sandestin because it is, hands-down, the most beautiful resort on the Emerald Coast. In addition to the natural beauty, the unlimited amenities and entertainment options, make Sandestin, in our opinion, the best resort in the area by far.

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
Our property is on the ground floor, so no waiting for elevators. We are also pool side. So, parents travelling with children can, literally, sit inside the unit and watch the children at play in the pool.
