  • First a Wedding......Then an Anniversary

    "My youngest son got married last October in Bay Town Wharf at the Marina aboard the Solaris and we stayed in this unit. It was everything that was promised and more. Our 3 year old grand daughter thought everything was there just for her!! The wedding was perfect and everything was GREAT!! So great in fact that my husband and I decided to come back to spend our 40th anniversary here in this same place. We also got to spend some time with our son and daughter in law who had married here last year. Next time (and there will definitely be one) we will have the whole family together again to include my other son, daughter-n-law and 2 grand daughters. Thank you for a lovely, very clean place to stay with many options of fun and food to choose from."

  • Lovely home, excellent amenities

    "I was fortunate enough to spend six weeks in this lovely home. Great location and very spacious. Home was equipped with everything we needed and more for a wonderful, comfortable vacation. Anything we needed the property manager was quick to provide. All the beds were very comfortable and the kitchen was a chef's dream. I can't wait for an opportunity to return to this property!"

  • 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!"

  • Wonderful Vacation

    "My family just returned from our week long vacation in Destin. We have visited the area a few times before but this was the first time we stayed in the Sandestin Golf and Beach Resort. Heron Walk is a wonderful place to stay. The townhouse is exactly as described and so very comfortable. We felt truly at home. We had everything we could possibly need and the location can not be beat! Jim was so wonderful to work with. We can't wait to return for our next family get away!! The Silva Family!!"

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.
