Recent Sandestin Area reviews

  • Perfect Location, Perfect Vacation!

    "This place is everything that we wanted in a vacation! Denise was SUPER easy to work with, everything on this posting is 100% accurate. The location is by far the best - right on the beach, and right across the street from Baytowne Wharf. The only thing I will add, is that the bonus room bed is not the most comfy bed ever... but we were able to work with it. Would absolutely recommend this place to a friend, we had very straight forward directions and loved every minute of our stay!"

  • Very Nice Condo

    "First, the condo is just as advertised. Very comfortable for 2 adults. Put in the following address in your GPS, 9800 Grand Sandestin Blvd, Miramar Beach, FL 32550; my GPS did not recognize Sandestin as a valid city. Upon arrival, pull in and give the guard your name and where your staying, Elation. Follow the signs to the Grand Sandestin. If you already have your door code and gate codes from the owner, you can go directly to your condo (I didn't know that, and wasted time waiting in line for nothing). Turn into the main entrance of the Grand Sandestin, and you will see the underground parking garade on the right. Put in your code and then follow the signs to the Elation parking area. You can park in any space, as long as its Elation. Then, look for the Elation elevator; thats how you will get to your room. We were in 5106, which in on the lobby floor. I strongly recommend getting the golf cart. The pool is very nice and clean, and is just a very short walk from the Elation building. Bayside Wharf is also a short walk away, no golf needed for that. The golf cart has lights, be sure to use them at night! Use the golf cart to go to Grand Blvd and the beach. There is a map in the golf cart. Suggest you bring a few bungie cords to tie your stuff down on the golf cart. When you go to the beach, you will have to park near the Elephant Walk (next to the Hilton). Recommend entering the beach at the entrance between the Elephant Walk and the Hilton; not where the tram drops everyone off. You will see a very nice air conditioned bathroom trailer by that entrance that noone seems to know about. We never had a bad meal. We ate at Cantina Larado, Flemings, Travanio, Agave Azul, Graffiti (Funky Blues Shack) twice, Poppys, Marina Grill, and PF Changs. There is very nice fireworks show on Tuesday nights at the Bayside Wharf. We had a very nice time."

  • Best condo yet!

    "On our way home from an amazing week in this beautiful condo. We have stayed in 3 other condos in the same building and this is by far the nicest. I loved that it had so many extra things the others did not. Soap for all the sinks, nice beach chairs and umbrellas, iPod docking stereo in kitchen, surround sound stereo in living room, extra comfy bed in master, beautiful tile work in showers, fully stocked kitchen for cooking. The list goes on and on. Thanks Lillian for sharing your home with us!"

  • 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."

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.
