  • Perfect place!

    "We could not have picked a better place to spend our vacation! Judy, the owner, was SO good to work with and always so responsive to my questions. The location was perfect, right on the bay. The place was updated, spotless, and literally had everything a family would need and more. We didn't walk to the beach as it was a little far to walk if you have things to carry, but it was easy to drive and park there. We have used VRBO in the past and this was our best experience yet. I would recommend this property to everyone and hope to return - it was really hard to leave!"

  • 1st time snowbirds

    "First of all, this property is gorgeous. Our first time renting for a month, and we ended up staying 2! Condo was sparkling clean, beautifully decorated, and kitchen well stocked. And now for our favorite-- THE VIEW! We were on the oversized balcony every single day. Enjoyed the dolphins swimming by, and walking on the beach. So many places for fresh seafood, and lots of shopping areas close by. Highly recommend visiting the Air Force Armament Museum, no admission charge, and very interesting. Lots of outside airplanes, and also inside. We loved Baytown Village, which is close also. The master bedroom was so comfy, loved the bed! The owner was so pleasant, and easy to contact. We usually rent from vrbo, and scored a winner on this one. We will be back!!!!"

  • Quality Family Time

    "I would recommend this condo. We had a small issue that was handled by the end of the next day. Marcella was quick to reply to my email. There are chairs for the beach and it's not a long walk. We enjoyed our stay."

  • Didn't want to leave

    "My family loved staying here this summer. Location is the best in Sandestin. Rode bikes to the village and the beach. Rented a kayak from a local shop, who delivered to our door in about 45 minutes, and picked up the day we left, for a very reasonable rate. My son enjoyed taking the kayak into the bay and exploring around Jolie Island, right from the back deck. Samantha was great to work with, very kind and helpful. Would definitely stay again."

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.
