                            Arrived to find a lovely, CLEAN, and well done condo. I could recommend this property to just about everybody I know. There was a small issue with communication, but the staff at Mainsail took care of it quickly. No problem with this rental! Go and enjoy!

                            We had a wonderful time staying in your condo! Everything we needed was there from enough towels to kitchen utensils... The water was perfect the first couple of days as it felt like we were in a pool...couldn't ask for anything better. The convenience of your condo being so close to the water was a huge plus for us as this is our second time visiting Destin. We will plan to be back and stay a whole week this time. Thanks for letting us stay in your wonderful condo.

                            We had a great time in Destin and really enjoyed this condo. The view is wonderful and the balcony is nice to relax with your morning coffee. It was nice to be able to see the opposite direction from the beach view to monitor traffic and how busy the outlet mall was. The beach is nice and the chairs and umbrella a great bonus. There is a grocery store very close and Skippers Seafood market is a great place to pick up fresh shrimp and seafood to cook yourself. The two issues that we had with items not working properly Ted was right on to get fixed. My only complaint was that for several days two of the three elevators were not working and it was a bit of a trek up to the eighth floor. The condo is larger than I expected and decorated very nice. I will definitely recommend it to friends. Well worth the money and a good value to be right on the beach!

                            This was our first stay at Mainsail and we will definitely be back. The location is ideal being right in between Destin and 30A. We had easy access to both areas without being in the middle of the crowds. Groceries, beverages, restaurants and outlet shopping were all within walking distance. The condo was clean and well-maintained with plenty of space for family and friends. We had a great view of the beautiful beach and fell asleep to the sounds of the waves each night. I cant think of a better place to spend our week at the beach.

                            We had a great week at your condo! It was spacious and very comfortable for our family.we lived the location on the beach and also the view of the pool from the room. We could see kids without going down to get them. We also loved the convenience of the outlets, malls and restaurants. Everything was within 10-15 minutes and we couldn't have asked for better. Thanks so much for allowing us to use your home away from home!

                            My husband and I stayed at the Parks mainsail condo for a week during our honeymoon. Everything was great, from the beach, amenities, and cleanliness. The condo was in the perfect location with a gorgeous beachfront view. We loved having a book of local restaurants to browse through as well as, numerous nearby attractions. The staff at mainsail is very friendly and hospitable. We will definitely stay at this condo again. Thank you to the Parks family for sharing their wonderful condo!

                            My friends and I just returned from a lovely week in Miramar Beach. We loved the location because of it's proximity to the beach, pool, outlet mall and not being too far away from lovely restaurants. The condo itself has new flat screen television's with dvd players in each bedroom and the great room. You can tell the owner has invested money in the kitchen which is very well equipped and great room area with nice furniture. There is plenty of room, so that you are not breathing down each others necks. The patio overlooks the ocean with a tall table with chairs and two patio chairs with a small table between them. The owner also supplies two beach chairs which is a nice perk, because many condo owners do not do that and it's an extra surprise expense for the renters. The condo development is lovely. Very well kept and we felt very secure with a guard on duty 24/7. The clientele is older (as are we) and not for your typical Spring breakers which we were thrilled about. That's not to say that there weren't young people staying there, but they were very respectful of not waking us all up at all hours of the night. There are a few things you should pack prior to going to Mainsail. Hair dryers! There are none supplied, which is a first for me. (I've been renting for a lot of years) Also there are towels, but not beach towels. We also needed to purchase more toilet paper because there were only a few rolls in the unit upon arrival. Really these are small things, but as a renter you should know. However you can ask Ted (the owner) anything you need prior to arrival and he will get back to you immediately. Which is great because you are never blind sided. We went to a few restaurants nearby that were fabulous. "Bistro Bijoux," which is in Baytown Wharf is very upscale with delicious food and presentation. "Stinky's" is on your way to Seaside. They had the best seafood chowder I think I've ever eaten in my life. "The WhalesTail" is not far from the condo. It's geared more for the Spring Breakers, but the fish was delicious and not expensive. Okay enough about the restaurants...this is a nice condo. I wish the ratings were Excellent, VERY GOOD, Average, etc. I would absolutely say, this is a VERY GOOD condo to stay in. Well, worth the price. Thanks, Ted for being a more than gracious host through emails:)

                            The listing description is accurate. We had beautiful beach-views from the den, the master bedroom, and the balcony. The condo itself is beautiful and looks brand-new. It feels very secluded but is still close to shopping and dining areas. We loved the location because we felt close to everything that we needed. Everything was spotlessly clean and the condo was well equipped. We had plenty of space for our family. We had a very comfortable, relaxed week; it was great to have the beach as our back-yard and to be able to go back and forth as we chose. The water was beautiful and crystal-clear. We were impressed by how quiet the complex was and how family-oriented it was. We spent all of our time at the beach, but there is a pool, too, for those who may not be big fans of salt water or sand. The owner was very helpful in answering questions, and his directions to the condo were superb. We had a lovely week and were sad to leave. Our last morning there, we saw dolphins from the balcony which just made it even more special. Overall, we would highly recommend this property and would stay there again.

                            Recommended for: Families with teenagers, age 55+, families with young children, people with disabilities, girls getaway, tourists without a car.

                            Owner response: Lee Ann, Thanks so much for being the first person to stay with us and we sure hope its not the last. Please consider us anytime you want a beach get away. If you have anyone in your family or friends coming down this way please pass along our place and make sure they let me know you referred them so we can take better care of you on your next trip with discounts. tp

                          Year Purchased: 2012

                          About the owner: Originally from Arkansas we currently live in Mississippi. I have worked for Wal-Mart for 28 years and my wife is a 3rd grade school teacher. We have two daughters ages 19 and 21 and we love the beach and decided to make the investment in property we can enjoy during the year and share with others.

                          Why the Owner Chose Mainsail:
                          The family atmosphere and kindness of this community is unmatched anywhere we have spent vacation. Private and never crowded on the property put in the middle of all you would want to do and see if you want to get out.

                          The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
                          Tucked away with a secure private experience but right across the street from outlet malls and anything you would want to do on vacation in the area. Bass pro shop is my favorite however my kids enjoy shopping at Destin commons, outlet mall and the movie theater.
