Mainsail house description

Welcome to our home in Mainsail, the perfect getaway! No matter the season, you don't need a reason to come enjoy the beach life in Destin. Our beautiful home is fully appointed so all you need to bring is you!

There are no worries when you're our guest- you'll feel right at home in this 3 bedroom/2.5 bath house. The King size master on main has French doors that lead out to the patio, plus a spa bathroom with double sinks and a Jacuzzi tub. Go upstairs to the Queen bedroom with its own private deck, the perfect place to watch the sunset with a glass of wine in hand. The full bath, (already stocked with linens!), is shared by the third bedroom which has 2 twin beds.

The kitchen has all the comforts of home; utensils, flatware, coffee maker, toaster and more. Or, you can grill poolside just steps from the back patio. Enjoy your coffee on the patio, or we have seating for 4 at the breakfast counter and seating for 6 in the dining room. The oversized living room has a large flat screen TV and DVD player, plus movies, books and games to enjoy during your stay. And if you want your clothes clean before you head home, there’s also a full sized washer/dryer.

One of the best things about our house is the convenience- the beach is a short walk away and there are no roads to cross. There are also 2 pools (plus a hot tub and children's pool), a gym, tennis and shuffleboard courts on the property and you can easily walk to a variety of restaurants, surf shops, Winn Dixie and the famous Silver Sands Outlets (which are right across the street).

Mainsail is a private, gated community that sits directly on the beach. Why rent in a high rise when you can park at your own (covered!) front door, never wait for an elevator and have peace and quiet with no one above, below or beside you? Check the calendar and plan your stay today!

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2011

              About the owner: Welcome to our page! A little about us... We are a family of five, plus one spoiled rotten four legged child. The beach has always been our vacation of choice, whether stateside, in South America or the Caribbean. Living in land locked Atlanta was starting to get to us, so we decided it was time for a retreat by the beach. What better place than the Gulf? You don't get that kind of soft sand and blue seas very often, not within driving distance anyway!

              Why the Owner Chose Mainsail:
              We purchased this wonderful beach house because we love the feel of the sugar white sand beach between our toes! We chose Mainsail because there are no roads to cross to get to the beach, the property has great amenities and the location can't be beat. One of us is a golfer and one is a shopper (guess who is who)- you can't get much closer to Silver Sands unless you're living in the parking lot. And the variety of beautiful golf courses keeps my husband very happy. We also love the security of a gated community- it is safer for everyone and makes us a lot more comfortable with letting our kids go out to play.

              The Unique Benefits at this House:
              It's great to be able to get your toes in the sand with the quick walk- just a few minutes! Plus, the beach in front of Mainsail is not crowded like some other spots in Destin so we can enjoy listening to the surf, not to a bunch of partying college kids. As the weather cools, we enjoy the heated pool that is just steps from our patio as well as the hot tub at the main pool. No matter what time of year, this is a perfect relaxing getaway!
