Recent Sandestin Area reviews

  • Wonderful condo!

    "This was our third year staying at Hidden Dunes but our first year in this condo. The owner was extremely helpful about keeping in contact before the rental dates and the condo was immaculate. The decorating was pretty and the furniture was comfortable and in great condition. The view was amazing! We are already planning our stay for next year in this condo."

  • Beautiful and spacious!

    "The moment we walked in, we were blown away by how nice and clean it is. We immediately walked out to the large patio balcony and were very excited to start our vacation there. I blame myself for this, I thought it was literally steps down to the pool since it is a "ground floor" unit. This was important to us with children to access the pool easily. To access, you actually have to go through the building back outside and enter through a secured gate. It is close but not off the patio like I thought. The resort is gorgeous and everyone was super nice. We will definitely be returning to Sandestin!"

  • Relaxing, clean, wonderful Bungalow!

    "We had the best time at this Bungalow! We loved having a golf cart to use and explore the surrounding area. And the pool was extremely close which made it convenient to go to. Bungalo itself was decorated beautifully made us feel very much at home. And the owners are wonderful. They were accessible by phone and answered any questions we had. It was a great vacation!!"

  • Great honeymoon spot

    "This condo provided my wife and I a beautiful place to stay for our honeymoon. We had the trip of our lives! The pictures are accurate. No picture can do any justice of the amazing beach/gulf view you get from the balcony which you can access from your master bedroom or living room. There is also a balcony than you can access from tee living room that gives you a great view of other buildings and golf courses on sandestin. The beach chairs and umbrella that are provided were a huge bonus. They work great. We had an issue with the air conditioning not cooling the condo very well but someone was sent in a timely manner and the issue was resolved. We took advantage of the very nice stackable washer and dryer. Our bed was extremely comfortable. The pillows were also comfortable. Both flat screen tvs are not huge but they get the job done. Nice kitchen with several pieces of cookware. Westwinds pool seems to be the biggest and best. Sandestin is a beautiful resort. Westwinds has a PRIME location and has very fast and easy beach access."

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.
