  • Great Unit at a fantastic location

    "Stayed for two nights. Observation Point is a great place to stay if you're looking to stay close to the village. This unit faces their pool so you aren't directly exposed to late night noise....etc from the village. Unit is right next to the main elevator giving you easy access. Elevator takes you down to main lobby which is next to Marlin Grille. Awesome location. Unit needs to general clean-up. Not a big deal but if you travel with small kids, you may want to be aware. Nicely decorated and offer everything you'll need for cooking...etc."

  • Great place to stay!

    "My family stayed here for a week in June. Carey, the owner was very helpful and very responsive. The house was very well equipped with everything we needed. The backyard was nice! The pool was close by. We rented the golf cart and it was very handy to take to the beach because there is golf cart parking at the front! We also went to Baytowne Wharf frequently and took the golf cart there too. The whole resort is very nice. We enjoyed our stay! We recommend this property!!"

  • Loved this place!!!

    "Our family absolutely loved our stay here. First of all, the resort is gorgeous! Check-in was a breeze. The condo was in the perfect location, conveniently close to just about everything. The pictures are very accurate and the listing is exactly as described. Everything we needed for our stay was provided in the room, (thank you Gail for the gift card by the way) kitchen fully equiped, beach gear, and the bed was super comfy! We truly felt at home. The village was such a neat place and has so much to offer day and night- shopping, eatery, adventures, and entertainment for all ages. Each night there was a different and fun attraction. We enjoyed having breakfast at Another Broken Egg Cafe every morning and the wait staff was great! To get to the beach we took a short ride on the shuttle and were amazed at how beautiful the beachfront was. The pool was nice also as mentioned. The weather was wonderful for the entire duration of our trip. Gail was very easy to communicate with, and every experience with her was pleasurable. She made all of the arrangement info clear and was nearby if we needed her. We had no complications with anything, and would definitely recommend this location. We had a great time with lots of happy memories and would love to stay here again!"

  • THE ABSOLUTE BEST!!!

    "My wife, 3 kids, wife's parents, sister, and aunt, and I have stayed in this EXACT unit four times over the past 3 years and LOVE IT! The owner's are WONDERFUL to deal with and very accommodating to us. The place is PERFECT! It is nicely decorated and it definitely feels like Home away from Home! We LOVE the Gold Cart. It really makes things very easy to get to. Also, if you stay during the week, you can see a FREE fireworks show from the back patio of at Baytowne. They also had some beach items that we could use and return. My son left his teddy bear 2 years ago and we emailed her and she totally understood and had it shipped to us immediately. We will ALWAYS check here first for all of our return trips. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS PLACE! If I had 10 thumbs, I would give it 10 Thumbs UP!"

Sandestin Area Travel Tips

Get ready for some fun under the sun along the beautiful coastal waters of Destin, Fla. This sandy beachfront community features a wealth of outdoor activities and excursions that will make this vacation a standout in the memory bank. Located on the Florida panhandle, visitors will enjoy the shimmering waters and warm breezes that drift up from the Gulf.

The city as we know it today was established by Captain Leonard Destin, who moved to the northwest Florida coast from Connecticut in the mid-1800s. Captain Destin pioneered the fishing industry in the town that bears his name, and that tradition is still a major part of the community’s economy today. The largest and most elaborately equipped fishing fleet docks here in Destin due to its close proximity to the 100 Fathom curve and deep Gulf waters.

Golfers Paradise

Golf has become a popular activity among tourists and locals alike, and visitors have a wide selection of courses to choose from. Whether you’re a PGA professional or an amateur golfer, you’ll be sure to find a course that is both challenging and fun. These are some of the best fairways scattered in and around the city of Destin:

- Raven Golf Club was designed by Robert Trent Jones Jr., and features an array of stunning vistas that carve through the marshes and pine groves of Sandestin. The 6,900-yard, par-71 course will present golfers with a challenging and strategy-filled match that is sure to test almost every club in their bags. Over the past few years, this club has played host to PGA events as well as NCAA championships and has been honored by quite a few publications as one of the best courses in Florida.

- Burnt Pine Golf Club is a spectacular 7,000-yard jewel that rests upon the Emerald Coast of Florida. The back nine stretches out along the shoreline of the Choctawhatchee Bay, which provides some absolutely breathtaking natural beauty. The front nine is spread out through the lush pine groves and wetlands that populate the area, but look out - these pretty vistas provide some tricky obstacles as you make your way from tee to tee. The course was designed by architect Rees Jones, and has been hailed as a superior one by Golf Magazine and other publications.

- The Links Golf Club deviates from the classic designs of other courses in the area and presents golfers with rolling hills throughout the fairways, as is typical in links-style courses. Resting along the coastline of the Choctawhatchee Bay with a backdrop provided by the Baytowne Marina, this picturesque landscape envelops players with a sense of calm and tranquility. Unless of course your ball ends up in the pits of one of the many bunkers that surround the manicured greens.

Relaxation and Beaching it Easy

There are numerous public beaches that sprawl along the beautiful Emerald Coast. The white sands and warm Gulf breezes make leisurely living come naturally to even the most high-strung travelers. Sink your toes into the sand and take a load off at one of these excellent beaches:

- Barracuda Beach located at Barracuda and Scenic 98 is open to the public, and presents guests with wide-open expanses of sun-baked coastline. Work on a killer tan or try your hand at some sandcastle construction at this incredible oceanfront locale.

- Calhoun Beach near Restaurant Row is another prime public spot that enables travelers to enjoy the coastal views. Open from dawn to dusk, this beach presents a great view of the crashing waves that surge inward from the Gulf.

- Norriego Point Beach is located on the eastern tip of the peninsula and overlooks Destin Bay. Pack a picnic lunch or a romantic sunset dinner for two on the sands of this natural sanctuary and watch the boats as they slowly drift into the harbor.

Activities in Sandestin

If lounging about in the sand all day gets a little hard to handle, there are quite a few local spots that make for an engaging and fun-filled excursion. This quiet oceanfront community offers visitors an array of great activities spread throughout the town. Take an afternoon to discover some of these excellent hangouts:

- The Destin History and Fishing Museum features a variety of exhibits that document the history of this once quaint fishing village. Visitors will find a variety of antique fishing equipment, including one split bamboo pole and Penn reel that belonged to the late American author Ernest Hemingway.

- Destin’s Main Street Market was established by transplants Tom and Amy Holt as a way to promote local farmers and their produce. Every Saturday morning, guests can find a wide spectrum of fruits, vegetables, milk, eggs and baked goods, making the perfect picnic or just something to snack on during deep excursions.
