Recent Sandestin Area property reviews

  • Love LUAU

    "Two families went for fall break. I was apprehensive that the space was too small but with the lockout 2nd bedroom it gave us all some privacy and we still saved money by having our own kitchen! I love the beach, am scared of what is swimming in the ocean, so the large saltwater pool fit me to a T. The resort is beautiful in everyway! Don't forget to go to the roof top deck to catch the sunsets! We used Panhandlegetaways and heard they have a 3 bedroom condo at LUAU as well. Hopefully we will return next year - this is a winner!"

  • Stay dated May 31-2014 - June 7, 2014

    "Rating Details: I was more than satisfied with the condition of the vacation rental. I was very happy with the location. The vacation rental was spotless. The property manager was adequately helpful. Overall, I recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: Overall very good, view from the third floor unit no 4724 is excellent. Unit was in overall very good condition with a very few exceptions, we did have one broken chair on patio, and one lamp did not work in Master Bedroom, and Ice maker dispenser did not work. Unit was clean and overall well maintained. The Vacation to go management staff was a bit disorganized, we stopped at the office on the way in to pick up wrist bands for pool use only to find them already in our room. When we were to leave, I called on Saturday morning a half dozen times to see if we were to leave these same bands in our room or to return them to the office as written information has directed us to do, I never got anyone to answer the phone. We took bands to office only to find out we could have left them in the Condo. this was a bit annoying, other than two elevators being out of commission on Saturday morning when were leaving all was very good and we would return."

  • Another great trip

    "This is our 2nd year to stay at the condo in hidden dunes. The condo continues to be convenient to all the Destin spots we enjoy. The condo is clean and neat. It also has all of the necessities that our family needs. The appliances are all clean and in good working order. We love the access to the pool and beach. We look forward to staying there in the future."

  • Great vacation, condo and resort

    "We had never stayed at Tops'l resort before. We loved it. The amenities were great! Free put put , and gym, shuttle to the beach! This condo was perfect! After Memorial DAy, the shuttle even takes you to the outlet mall! Not seeing water view was not a problem for us, we were at the beach anyway. It's cheaper not seeing water, and the shuttle took you there anyway. We also liked being on 2nd floor. If the elevators were busy, we ran down the one flight of stairs. Some people in the resort had pets, but don't know if pets are allowed in this condo. Smoking is not which was a plus for us."

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.
