Sanddollar Townhomes townhome description

'Everyone needs to have their own beach.' Yours is waiting for you here...

Located on the pure white quartz sand beach of South Walton, BahiaCabana is now under owner management, and it is the perfect choice for your exceptional beach vacation. Pure Luxury awaits you at our GULF front town-home located in SandDollar Townhomes. Meticulously renovated with no expense spared and professionally furnished, BahiaCabana offers granite counter tops, stainless appliances, custom cabinetry, 7 flat panel televisions, and furniture you would expect in only the nicest beachfront homes Miramar Beach has to offer. If you have discriminating taste, our beach home is the place for you. If you have ever walked into a home and said 'Wow' then you know what we are talking about. The 3 balconies and beachfront deck all offer up endless views of the Gulf of Mexico. Each of the balconies are perfect for sipping your morning coffee or sipping your afternoon cocktail. You will be sending photos of the your views of the Emerald Coast to your friends while you are sitting on the balcony trying to schedule your next vacation.

We often get questions about how to access the beach from our home. The door which provides access to the beach is at the back of the lower level of our home. This door is just next to the lower level bedroom. Through this door, you go down a straight and sturdy set of steps, which leads you to the beach level deck and to the sand. We chose this design when we rebuilt the decks in 2012. We preferred to have only 1 access to the beach so we could have more living space on each of the 3 balconies.

Car: Recommended

If you are a Beach Person, then this is the place to book. Simply walk off the beach level deck and your toes are in the white sand of the Emerald Coast! Our Gulf Front town-home is absolutely perfect whether you enjoy being in the water, on the sand or just looking at them both. All 3 of our balconies offer absolutely stunning views of the Gulf of Mexico. You can choose to completely relax and do absolutely nothing except enjoy the beach, or you can choose to have an active stay since our beach home is right in the middle of lots of things to do!

We highly suggest the short walk down the beach for a cold beverage and appetizers or a great meal & seasonal live music at the locally famous Pompano Joe's. Po Joe's, as we locals like to call it, also has a volleyball net where you can usually always find a pick-me-up game of volleyball, and in the summer, you can rent jet skis and paddleboards. A little longer walk in the opposite direction will take you to another beach front restaurant, Whale's Tail. We love to walk to Whale's Tail in the morning for Mango daiquiris.

The Destin Harbor boasts lots and lots of family friendly things to do. Our absolute favorite thing to do in the summer is to go to the Harbor and rent a pontoon boat for the day and make the short trek to the famous Crab Island, located on the bay side of the Destin bridge. We like to finish the day on the water with dinner at The Boathouse Oyster Bar which has live music every evening in the summer. AJ's is also a great place to catch live music or catch the game on its new and huge outdoor TV screen.

You Fishermen are in luck; Destin is known as The World's Luckiest Fishing Village. You have lots of options at the Harbor for fishing from private charters to large group charters. The first weekend is October at the Harbor boasts the Destin Seafood Festival. The Fishing Rodeo runs every year from October 1-31.

For you die-hard shoppers, you are only a handful of miles from the Destin Commons, an open air mall with lots of shopping and great places to eat. There you will find Bass Pro Shop, Destin's biggest movie theater, which boasts an IMAX screen,and Uncle Buck's Fish Bowl, the coolest bowling alley around, where you feel like you are bowling underwater. Even closer than the Destin Commons is the Silver Sands Outlet Mall...need we say more?

When the kids are ready for some pool time, Big Kahuna's Water and Adventure Park is about 11 minutes away. On the way to Big Kahuna's is The Track, a family fun place with go-cart racing, bumper boats, mini-golf and much more for kids of all ages.

For the all the Golfers in the family there are about 8 Golf Courses all within an 8 mile radius.

We could go on and on but you really need to book and experience it all for yourself and family!

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2011

About the owner: We are Florida transplants from Texas and Ohio. We have both loved the Destin area for many years, and we are now lucky enough to call the Destin area our home. We love spending as much time in, on and around the Gulf as we can.

Why the Owner Chose Sanddollar Townhomes:
We absolutely love Miramar Beach & South Walton's Beaches. We chose our beach home in Sanddollar because it is Gulf-front, spacious and the beach is private. Our home required a complete renovation when we bought it, so we were able to put our 'touch' on it from top to bottom. Its close proximity to our favorite hang-out, Pompano Joe's was just icing on the cake.

The Unique Benefits at this Townhome:
Since we have the luxury of being local, we personally check on our home, at minimum, every week. We make every effort to ensure you have a great vacation. With 3 floors of living space, everyone in your party will have plenty of room to stretch out. Our 3 balconies and beach level deck offer overly sufficient outdoor living space as well. Our top deck offers the biggest Master Bedroom deck in Sanddollar. We love it so much and are so excited to share it with you. We hope it brings you as much joy as it does us.
