  • Yearly Family Vacation to Sandestin Resort

    "Rating Details: The property manager was very helpful. The vacation rental was clean. I was very happy with the location. I was satisfied with the condition of the vacation rental. Overall, I recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: Very nice location and extremely helpful property managers. The place was laid out very well for our two families with children - there were enough separate rooms and spaces to feel like we were not on top of each other all week. The property could use some maintenance, however. The managers graciously sent out maintenance for some repairs (replacing light bulbs, hammering in popped up nails on deck, fixing sliding screen door) but the place needs some overall help: paint touch up, sliding door lock repairs, cleaning under the beds (found an assortment of trash including a condom wrapper, dirty sock, balls, and lollipop under master bed upstairs), deck sanded and stained, to name a few. This place would be exceptional if a little more care was put into making it more presentable. A larger grill would be nice too (or at least a clean one - had to scrub and empty out ashes/old coals before using it for the first time)."

  • A Wonderful Find

    "We have just returned from 10 nights at this amazing townhome. Perfect location, amazing owners and superb accommodations. We have visted Sandestin for many years now and this unit has been our favorite. Located on the shores of Chocktawatchee Bay, it is a quiet getaway spot with glorious sunrises and sunsets. The beach is a short drive or bike ride away and we think this is the nicest beach in all of Florida. When you walk through the door of this unit, it is so impressive with its high ceilings, beautiful furnishings and phenomenal views. It was so well equipped and very comfortable for two. The owners, who live next door, were always available to answer questions and are delightful people. The property is close to many good restaurants and shopping. All in all a wonderful find. We will be back."

  • Wonderful rental!!

    "My husband and I rented this unit for our family vacation with our three year old son last August, and it was fabulous. The grounds are beautiful and have so many walking/running/biking trails for those who enjoy those activities. There is also a golf course and fishing, shopping, etc. at the Sandestin Golf and Beach Resort. This unit is about 200 yards from the beach with paved walkways leading to the boardwalk that takes you out the the beautiful sugar white sands of Sandestin. The water was crystal clear last summer and was absolutely stunning! The pool for the Luau condominiums is the best pool in the entire complex and even has a tiki hut bar for cold adult beverages on a hot day in the FL sun :) The unit is very clean and has all that is required for a family of four to stay comfortably. Bring detergent to wash bath linens as there are not an over abundance in the unit; however, this was not an issue for us. The kitchen was stocked fairly well to accommodate cooking; we only ate dinner outside the condo twice in five days. All in all, this was a fantastic rental, and I plan to book again this August for a return trip. We've found our vacation spot in Sandestin for sure :)"

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.
